Codex (plural "codices", but "codexes" is also occasionally used) is the name of a source book for Warhammer 40,000 armies and factions containing background information, pictures, and rules.


1st Edition

While the term "Codex" was not yet used, a number of books were comparable. Like the more modern editions, they included units and rules that were compiled from White Dwarf.

Codices

The 2nd Edition was substantially more colourful and the new Codex books reflected this fact. More detailed information, such as background and organisation, was included, adding more depth and details to the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

3rd Edition

The 3rd Edition Codexes were much smaller and less detailed than the second. This is because several new races were invented and five or six codexes a year could be produced.
