The new Codex: Space Marines will feature expanded background material about the iconic Warhammer 40,000 faction, bringing their history up to date with the events of the Indomitus Crusade, as well as updated rules, unit lists, psychic disciplines, and Chapter Tactics, including an overhaul of their army-wide rules.
Games Workshop will also offer three sets of Datacards, one for each of the three new books. These cards are designed to help speed up gameplay by providing players a quick reference to rules for Tactical Objectives, Stratagems, psychic powers, and other character abilities.
Rounding out the new releases will be all-new miniatures depicting iconic characters from the two Chapters: Chief Librarian Tigurius for the Ultramarines and Kor'sarro Khan for the White Scars. Also on its own for the first time will be the Primaris Lieutenant, which was previously available only as part of the Wake the Dead boxed set (see "‘Warhammer 40,000: Wake the Dead’").
Specific release date and pricing information for the new items have not been announced.
