Thread: If you could make a Brand New Codex, which would you make?

  1. #1

    Post If you could make a Brand New Codex, which would you make?

    If you could have GW make a new codex- and that is either a subdivision of an existing one (a new chapter codex - or an Aspect Eldar codex), or a codex never before seen ... what would you want it to be? =D

    I'll leave my own opinion for a later post, I want to hear what everyone else would love to see.

    And if you could include Why, that would be great!

We must put aside our pride and reach out to those we once battled against. Apart each of our races is fading into oblivion. Perhaps together we can save each other from our own nature."

    I would remake all of the current codex that have been released and release them all at the same time after extensive play testing by a group of randomly selected players from different places around the world. after that i would bring squats back to life!

    Codex Ward. In fact here it is: You win!

    No, in a more serious tone, if I had creative say over Codex design, it would be to consolidate a few Marine ones as right now there are too many as it is for them to all be updated each edition. If it simply had to be introduce a new Codex, I would have to also vote Codex Adeptus Mechanius. There is enough established stuff that no one else has to make it work. Something like:

    HQ
    Magos
    Skitarii Tribunes

    Elites
    Auxilia Myrmidon
    Legio Cybernetica medium robots
    Skitarii Praetorians
    Techpriests as multiple per selection and function as support to other units granting special rules to unit attached to.

    Troops
    Skitarii Hyspasists
    Other Skitarii units, possibly armed more for assault
    Servitor teams

    Fast Attack
    Legio Cybernetica light robots
    Servitor controlled drones - bike or jet bike unit
    Skitarii aircraft

    Heavy Support
    Knights
    Legio Cybernetica heavy robots
    Skitarii Cataphractii
    Skitarii Balisteria
    Skitarii Sagitarii

    Skitarii units would be highly customizable, but some options would be army-wide choices. An example would be armor saves based at 4+ but can be upgraded to 3+ or 2+ and weapons would start equivalent to a lasgun but could be upgraded to hotshot lasguns or bolter equivalents. Gene-bulked could be an option, increasing the basic toughness of all Skitarii units by 1. All Skitarii get acute sense or night fight rules as an upgrade. Perhaps an army-wide upgrade for a 6+ invulnerable. There would be other unit specific options like heavy and special weapons or close combat upgrades too.

    I have 2 in mind. Codex: Gue'nam (Gundam Wing/Humans through Tau) and Codex: Army of the Old Ones (Lizardmen).

    Re: If you could make a Brand New Codex, which would you make?

    Codex: Cults

    Although that's much too basic a title for GW. They'd call it Throngs of Doom or something.

    A basic human list, with options to use it as Imperial, Chaos or Genestealer Cult, as well as mutants and militia, and maybe Imperial PDF and Tau auxiliary forces.

    The model range would be designed on the same principle, being open to conversions and add-on packs. Generic infantry, guys in robes, guys in armour, cavalry, bikers, armoured cars and trucks.

    Use some stuff from existing ranges (Daemons, purestrain Genestealers, Inquisitors, certain IG tanks) and finish off with some new sculpts specific to the variants.

    Concepts by John Blanche, natch. Background explores some aspects of 40K that don't really fit into the military-focussed Codex books.

    Not aimed at being a competitive army in the game so much as providing a lot of 40K flavour. Useful fodder for scenarios and conversions, and interesting projects for hobbyists.

    Two ideas:

    Codex: Mercenaries & Renegades
    -There are tons of fighters who aren't in the guard.
    -Some are privateers, some are raiders and pirates hunted by the Imperium...
    -Would cover a more individualized human fighting force, with plenty of customization both within squads and across the army.

    Codex: Rogue Trader
    -Seeking plunder, Rogue Traders and their crews often travel to dangerous war zones...
    -Would cover Rogue Traders, their crew, hired mercenaries, and Xenos allies.

    That's the correct answer.

    I'm pretty sure Tyranids are already lizardmen in space. :P

    If I got to choose a new codex? I'd have to say exodites if I'm not going to be a huge jerk, or maybe maybe maybe Mechanicus. But if I were to be a jerk, I'd say Codex: Lost and the Damned!
    Wait, I have prefered enemy (space marines). It lets me reroll one to hit and wound against space marines. Which those Eldar are.

    Did you know I have a blog? Neither did I, but apparently it's here! Fresh off the presses: Psychic power homebrew alternatives! Maybe these don't suck as much as GWs, that's my unguaranteed claim!

    Codex: Squats.

    'Nuff said.

    Well, apart from the fact that anyone who mentions releasing another Space Marine chapter as a separate book deserves to be assaulted with something pointy.

    1) Long time wish for a follow up to Tau Empire.

    Tau Auxilliry.

    More focused on the Aux firces than the Tau forces. Expand on the ailen races and such.

    2) A propper tomb, posably even larger than the rulebook. Codex Adeptus Astarties. One place for all Marine founding chapters and their successors.

    3) Then do the same for chaos.
    Ordo Xenos Deathwatch Squad
    Go. Comment. Use. I beg you.

    I'll think of something else appropriate soon enough to put here.

    Or maybe a return of Codex: Craftworld Eldar.
    Nemesis Doom Thumb - Castigator
    Eldar Runes of Cheating - Cheeslord

    I'm painting some Eldar again!

    Something akin to legion of the damned with mutants, renegade pdf/guard forces and chaos cults.
    Nurgle renegade guardsmen project log, now also a general chaos/daemons log Update 13-04-2013 Plaguereaper and the promise for more

    Quantity is a quality all of it's own.
