What I don't like about BolS (or any other 40k news site for that matter) is that thry don't list their sources. I went to Warhammer Community's site, and nowhere did I find any info saying that the Drukhari are first in line, followed by us. Did I miss a key detail somewhere else?

I think it's just the order they were announced and the order they're laid out in the promotional photos. I'm not sure it's otherwise been confirmed.

My guess is tau will be first since we got a regimental standard.

That was my thinking too, I really hope so. I just want some sort of leak to come out to confirm this. :::(

GW gets the codex ready 8 months in advance. At this stage, the rules are set in stone.

Yea.
I have a feeling in my gut that something awful is about to happen to us.

There's a rumour that there's going to be a battle for mars box with the necrons and skitarii, mostly fuelled by the new knight and kryptek that combined with the regimental standard my guess is we're next followed by necrons and ad mech

It a number that has been floating around but the source no clue.
There has been rummer over on the codex discussion post that somebody already had a view insight the codex.
It would be logical that at least a month in advance the codex are printed and distributed so everything we say has no impact what so ever on what is going to be in there.
All praise the greater good or fall under its might.
Sorry for all of my English mistakes made and to make.

I believe it's more of an estimation, because the practicalities of mass producing a book in multiple languages mean that it needs to be finished months in advance of release so that it can be proof read, translated and sent to printers to get enough copies produced for a large multi-national release.

I really just want them to say we can Ally with guard as Gue'Vessa and keep battleforged. That would make sense AND give us a bit more flexibility. Hell...the Tau have even fought side-by-side with the Ultra Marines on occassion, but I'd consider that a stretch. With the guard, it is well documented that the Tau have dominion over entire human worlds that provide forces and fight for the Tau Empire using standard Imperial doctrine and battle formations.

The Mechanicum are just causing trouble for everyone now aren't they. They are up against the Tau in Fires of Firaxis too (if it ever gets a release date)
