Yeah, the codex are more an update to the sheets in the index than a complete redo
So, since most cats are pretty stable now it should just be an update job...
I don't forsee a vast number of new Eldar units for example!

Chaos was mainly point tweaks and new options on existing units. A few weapon choices got tweaked (units can take special weapons at lower requirements).
Four pages on whether you can throw grenades instead of shooting a pistol :)

Where has it said that? Thousand Sons were given new powers by Community, but not Belakor. Same as DG didn't get new powers

That thread is something special
like really special
the kind of special that needs a seatbelt in a stationary chair
