Deathwatch and Space Wolves in November, Nurgle and Blood Angels in December, two more in January. I'll be stoked if they keep up with these roadmaps.

And confirmation that one of the January releases is Xenos.

 

If the other one isn't Dark Angels, they better have a good reason for making them wait. Like a Primarch or something.

Nah, just images in general

RIP Necrons, you had a month before deathwatch kills you.

You say its generic art, but GW always uses specific images. I'd think it's Genestealer Cults or Tyranids.

They only said early next year, never January.

 

Spoiler

 

Looks a bit specific to just be generic to me.

Jan, at first I thought it was Talons of the emperor.

 

however.

 

It has all of the blackstone imperial dudes in it (statues)

 

my guess on the JAN books

 

IMperium: factions (various)

Unaligned factions

Probably reading way to much into it but "rise up to put those Space Marines....." sounds like Genestealer Cults.

Not that I wish to cast doubts on the excellent sleuthing being done here, but is it possible they are just recycled images from the core rulebook? The 2nd one in particular looks like one of the composite images in there.

The darks greatest gift is the light itself: as days are defined by the nights that divide them, as stars are defined by the infinite dark through which they wheel, the dark embraces the light, and brings forth from the center of itself. With each victory of the light, it is the dark that wins.

The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

It definitely looks like GSC and Demons in January, if they keep up the pace the the remaining books will be done by early next year.

If they keep up that pace- they could have all codexes out in roughly a years time. Thats really quite impressive.

Yeah thats a generic cool xenos composite pic and a marine as heck one. 

"and more!" does imply possibly more than 2 codexes in January though.

With coronavirus delays, maybe even GW doesn't know what's next for sure.  They could just be waiting to see which boats show up first :P

As a Deathwatch player Im happy with the imminent release of the DW codex. The released Index FAQ thingie raised more questions that I hope are resolved in the codex.

 

As an Ork player I hope the Xenos Codex is my dear greenskins.

From personal wolfy experience, I wouldn't recommend that expectation. :D

Yeah, but unlike Russ who's currently in an unknown location in the Warp Wolfing it up, out of universe we know exactly where the Lion is.

 

And he's fully healed of his wounds too, per the most recent DA Codex....

True but also GW has a dumb habit of making at least 1 divergent dex wait for no reason haha, so I wouldn't put too much stock in a wait meaning more than spreading out releases

If you're looking for the art used on the two unrevealed codices, they are from pages 26 and 34 of your rulebook.

The first of which is opposite a page detailing the Rule of the Imperium, including references to the High Lords of Terra and the Senatorium Imperialis. Very easily refers to an Imperial faction, but no clear clues to which. There are banners all throughout the picture for literally every Imperial organization you can imagine. You'll see why I'm hesitant given the next one...

The second cover is a close-up of a montage shot opposite a page detailing "Perils Unknown". It talks of Heretic Astartes and Xenos threats, and the pictures that make up the the larger version indicate this as well.

Ultimately these feel like they're telling us in broad terms to expect an Imperial aligned and Xenos book, but in no way can we really assume which given the nature of the pics.
