Just what the title asks. What was the first codex of 4th edition? A friend of mine says it was Space Marines and I can't remember if it was or not.

I think Marines were released just before 4th edition, by a month or 2. While they were the first book written for 4th, I think the Tyranids were the first ones released after the rulebook hit.

I'm pretty sure Space Marines has been the first codex of every edition from 3rd to 5th. ...Maybe even 2nd, I dunno.

3rd was Dark Eldar and Space Marines. I think they hit the shelf at the same time.

Dark Eldar hit shelves in a month or 2 following Space Marines.
