Warhammer 40k Codex Preview Alert

This weekend, Saturday, September 12th, Games Workshop hosts a Warhammer 40k Codex Preview on Twitch. Like their previous Preview Show, Games Workshop blocks 15 minutes for the previews followed with a Live Blog. This preview focuses on Codex: Necrons and Codex Space Marines for 9th Edition. We should get more than a few pages to tear into before the October release.

In addition to the Codex Preview, Games Workshop has promised a few more miniature reveals. Will these be a closer look at the four units for each army they’ve already teased or will we be looking further down the line. Maybe something from the Codex after these two?

Meanwhile here are the four models from each Codex that we already know about. Hopefully we’ll get a feel for their release date, Codex launch or later, and game details.

If you’re in the US, plan to rise early Saturday for The Codex Show and to participate in the live blog. Otherwise, catch it in reruns at Warhammer Community. Check the chart below for start times.

What do you expect from the Warhammer 40k Codex Preview? I expect we’ll see new stat pages and Crusade details from both codices. As I said, hopefully with more on the models that have already been teased and other rule changes.

On to wish-listing! I’d like to see some as yet unrevealed Necron models or give us a glimpse at models in the Codex after these two. While Necrons have already been shown a heaping helping of love this release cycle, there are still holes in their lineup that could use filling. Of course, a look further out at a model or two for the next Codex would start the next cycle of excitement. And reassure the fans that every Codex arriving is getting a selection of new units.
