I have picked up the new 8th edition rulebook. I was under the impression that all army list were in the book. But where do I find the data sheets for all the armies?

Did I miss a section of the book where a Marine has stats of XYZ and a Bolter can shot XYV, etc.

Please let me know how I can use the new rules with current minis.

Rules are available with the models, in the case of new mode releases since 8th edition launched. For existing models, you will need to pick up one of the Indexes.

4 reviews and I do not recall the mention of any indexes.

Another data point… They have started releasing updated codices now.

Space Marine, Grey Knights, and Chaos (Marines only?) have been released so far.

If you are interested in one of those, then maybe you can skip the index book for that faction?

All the data sheets for existing models are in the Index books. I understand that new models will come with data sheets in the box, just like Privateer Press have done forever.

I've scanned the data sheets I need out of the Index, then trimmed them up and laminated them so I can keep them close to the table when playing. Works well. A lesson GW has finally learned from Privateer Press.

A lesson GW has finally learned from Privateer Press.

GW was using unit cards with all the rules for each unit almost 30 years ago (Epic 1st edition).

The indexes are not a bad deal. Usually four or five armies in each one for $25.00 USD. They don't have all the fluff as the codexes, but they do have all the stats and point costs you need.
