Hi everyone,

I'm hoping I can get some clarification on this because I couldn't find any official info from GW on how to run with.

I'm a Space Wolves player and with the recent announcement that the next 3 codex releases are BA, DA and Demons it's looking like it'll be some time in 2018 that the SW codex is released.

Obviously I'll be using the index until then but there is a complication involved in that obviously some of the units and weapons I can take are from the general Space Marine list as well as Space Wolves specific stuff. Given that the Space Marine codex is already out this presents me with a bit of a problem because to my understanding there are some points changes and rules changes between what was originally in the index and what is in the codex. Obviously the codex trumps the index for Space Marine players but what am I supposed to do given I'm playing Space Wolves?

For the record I don't own the Space Marines codex so the below example is just a hypothetical but I'm sure there are people with the SM codex and the index who can give me a real example.

To use an example (completely hypocritical) what if the cost of a powerfist went down from the index to the new SM codex, when arming my models with a powerfist am I supposed to pay the points value from the index or the SM codex? Also what if a unit cost has changed, once again if a land speeder points cost is different then do I use the index or codex points cost.

Now obviously there will be some things that went down in points and some things that went up and I have no intention of cherry picking the stuff based on what went down in cost but I also don't want to turn up to an event with a list where half the points costs are wrong and other players are doing it differently. Ideally it would be great to know one way or the other, I.e. I either go completely by the index for those SM unit/wargear entries or I go by the codex.

I've had a look through some GW FAQ stuff and I can't see anything that says what to do, so what do people think I'm supposed to do here? There are obviously other people in the same situation too right?
