Bust out your Black Templar guys… they’re now 5th Edition!

January 15, 2011 by beerogre

Welcome news from the dark corridors of Games Workshop. It looks like the Inquisition have finally forced the scribes of the Administratum to release some eagerly awaited Codex updates.

Updates that bring a lot of those Marine chapters, who were languishing in “old Codex hell”, bang up-to-date!

You can see the new FAQs here:

If you’ll notice, the Daemonhunters and Witch Hunters didn’t get an update. With the shock announcment that the Grey Knights Codex will be released in April (click here to read more on that), this is not surprising.

However, it does beg the question…

If the Black Templar and Dark Angels have been brought up to date with 5th Edition. Does this mean they will not be getting a new Codex this year?

What do you think guys?

Personally, I think this trashes any hope of a new DA or BT Codex anytime soon. However, that leaves the door wide open for the long awaited Necron reboot.

I think I can hear Darrell’s ears twitching already!!!
