We sourced the RUMORS: 40k Xenos Codexes On The Way Soon post on Tuesday, however that looks to be the same rumor that other sites were running yesterday, but they left out one big thing… Orks! And a lot of them.
Let’s take a look at the latest series of rumor on codex releases over the next couple months:
First we have this 40k release rumor that spotted over on Advanced Tau Tactica. User Haechi actually put these rumors out back in November, and so far he’s been accurate. But, no matter what, this is a rumor, don’t forget to add salt! Let’s see what he had to say.
Alright, I went back to see my “source” friend and asked for details. Here’s what I “know” now (yes I did report wrong things, I should take written notes, sorry lol) : Early and throughout January is double Daemons release, for both 40k and AoS. End of January is Custodes, which could be a longer release than usual as well because it has new entries in the codex (four as far as I know). February is unknown, but some of it will still be Custodes. Early or mid March is still T’au, and the end of the month Necrons. Then April and May are split between Harlequins, Drukharii, and the two new Aelves armies for Aos.
So Haechi actually told us about the Custodes releases over a month ago before anyone else knew. Could the rest of this rumor hold some truth to it? We’re already seeing new Daemons releases for 40k and AoS, and Custodes have been announced and are on their way.
As for February he added this little bit of info on January 6th:
He’s claiming the next releases, after custodes, will be Thousand Sons (which we also know are on the way) at the middle to end of February, T’au around the middle of March, Necrons at the end of March, and April/May will be split between Harlequins, Drukharii, and two new Aelves armies for Age of Sigmar. But, again this is just a rumor, don’t forget the salt.
Speaking of rumors… Here’s where Orks (da) jump into our coverage: This timetable was found in the comments section on Miniwars.
This rumor differs a little bit from the Haechi rumor above, but it also goes out to June, showing that the Orks will be getting a codex as well. But, there was no source on where this image came from, and we haven’t been able to track it down, so take it as you will.
Orks getting a Codex? It looks like it may be possible in the near future, especially after seeing what’s being added to the new GW stock list which is a list of items that store MUST have on their shelves going forward per Games Workshop store stock list policy.
Could this mean that we’ll be seeing a codex for the Orks in Q1 of this year now as well? There’s been no official announcement, but this could leave room for speculation as this list of Q1 releases was spotted on Miniwars, pictured above.
So will we be seeing Orks in June like the rumors states? Or could it be even sooner than that?
What do you think about the latest rumors? Will we be seeing Orks in the near future? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
