And the SM army was one of the oldest in the fourth edition. So looking back at the history, it's really doubtfull that the starter set will have two old armies, more doubtful one or both of those armies will have a codex after the boxset. meaning or they do both DA and Chaos in this couple of months, or we will have one of the fifth edition codexes (DE are one of the rumours) and a new codex (which could be BT or DA) in the new starter box. That's my philosofical thought :p
Sms were done because they were sms, not because they were first fourth.
The sms in aobr had 4th edition stats because the codex went into print after the set.
It is were made with fifth edition in mind and balanced for 5th; no point in a new codex.
Thinking logically, the dark angel on the spine will probably be completed after 12 issues and since we're on what? 4 or 5 now, its s till got like 6 to go dark angels will probably release at/around the starter set and both chaos and bt have gotten a lot of rumours. Either or could be next, but, gw store employees are no more privy to info than you are.
