Grey Knights are one of the first to get a book! That's surprising. I definitely won't bother with the index then.

My decision to not buy indexes paying off!

Is my index invalid now?
Not at all. Even with the pace we’re planning on releases these new codexes, it’s going to take well over a year to get to all of them. No single codex will cover all the contents of an index book, so you’ll get plenty of use out of all your indexes, don’t worry.

I just bought Index: Imperium 1 – what should I do with it?
You’ll want to keep hold of your index. Codex: Space Marines doesn’t include rules for playing with Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Deathwatch or Grey Knights armies, so you’ll still need Index: Imperium 1 to play with those. You’ll also need it for using some of the more unusual models such as the 30th Anniversary Space Marine, the Legion of the Damned and the Terminus Ultra Land Raider.

just saying...

I understand if you're playing every week or fortnight you might get benefit from them.

Also; if all you play is Space Marines without anything fancy, then the Index is, for all practical purposes, invalid.

I wonder if that will apply to inquisitors, assassins and things like that? I doubt they'll be in the Grey Knights book.

They are in Index Imperium II under "Imperial Agents" - they will probably be in that Codex.

Yeah, I think you'll see them in a codex of their own.

All that aside, it they price books at under $20 then I think they'll sell plenty!

I agree that if they do that they will sell plenty. But both of us know they are not going to do that.

different price entry sets for new players, also to get a more younger crowed interested earlier on I guess.

It is indeed a consideration. I would love to play a round of 40k but I have to wait until the next windfall. No worries though. The whole new system looks like it's worth it so I can wait. I would need both imperium codex and xenos 2 plus rules so about 160 plus taxes. Good deal as far as I'm concerned for a well made game. I wouldn't need to buy miniatures for ages as I have most of what I want plus a backlog of unbuilt stuff. I'm good for a year or more at this rate. All I'm acquiring now is some beastmen stuff from Konrad and I'll be good for a long time for fantasy as well.

You can download the core rules for free.

I am also suddenly intrigued by the implications of what has been said re. the new stealthMarines and the SM characters; their rules (datasheets) are in the box. And you can download the points for Matched Play https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/PDF/Downloads/K3ns3JDOGE2asjf/Primaris-week-2/UH29gsmfkrrtp_Primaris_Marines_Release_02_July_8th.pdf

So.... if this is the case, and if this model continues (i.e. putting the datasheets in the box and the Matched Play rules on the website) why do we need the Codices? I mean, why do (the exclusive) *we* need the Codices? We know the background for these armies - we've been playing for years. It is only for individuals who are coming to 40K for the first time the Codices are useful / essential.

And, even then, there is the basic rulebook and Lexicanum . . .

If I recall, they intend to keep the codex cheap.  I think $20 is the target.

Hells bells! I thought that was the case but have not found them. Although I confess I havnt looked that hard.

I found this but it's 120 and digital. I don't mind this but I do like books instead.

They don't make it easy; I found a reference to it on the Warhammer40000.com site, but no link! But Google was my friend;

Indeed thanks for that link! I saw it ages ago but havn't been able to find it since.

I like the new starter kits. I really like that there's different price points to get into the game, and the kits all look good and decent. The lowest one is $50 CAD and your getting 15 odd models (13 when I actually check), a mini board, a cardboard building, all the rules you need, dice, etc. I find that pretty good.

I'm also a big fan of the get started paint sets. Turns out there's a bunch of them that I just hadn't seen before the new Deathgaurd one, but $20 for 6 or 7 paints. Each set gets you pretty much everything you need for the faction.

Those sets are great ! They are only 3 mil pots but that can cover a lot of models. Great way to build up a colection of paints. 👆

Gulliman asked Colonel Mathi why his men fought. The answer was immediate and simple; "For the Emperor and hos, Lord Commander!" he cried.

The Primarch nodded sagely. "Fair enough," he agreed.
