Is there an updated Timeline? The target for the link is missing, I'm assuming after the forum update.

 

Apologies for the hassle. I always preferred the timeline here to most others I could find.

It appears that the timeline has been deleted, most likely because it was so outdated. Every time GW publishes a new rulebook/codex/codex supplement, additional events are created; and it's likely that the timeline hadn't been updated in years.

Realistically, you can find comprehensive timelines at either Lexicanum or the WH40K Wiki (which also has a chronology of events).

The problem with trying to maintain one here is that someone is going to have to keep it updated. Wherever we put it, the author would have to post updates (presumably other members that purchase books would provide the update information and the author would have to copy and paste). Mods and admins can, of course, provide assistance. If the tabulae are anything to judge by, however, the work would then fall to the mods/admins because authors don't always stick around and the other members rarely provide update information. Both of the wiki sites are much better at maintaining updated information because all registered members can edit the updates in.

Copy that, it's no worries. I was hoping there was still a local source, or a new one. I simply don't like Lexicanum or WH40K Wiki as sites to visit, while I love the B&C.

 

In any case thanks for that, I appreciate the help Tyler.
