June 2nd Event Uncovered


The June 2nd event at GW stores seems to have been uncovered. So according to this it is not a huge flyer release party.

Does this mean flyers will not be released in June? We still have no idea. In fact they could still be released that weekend, its just that the events mentioned prevously on the GW facebook pages were not talking about flyers.

Or so Games Workshop would like us to believe.........

Please realize, that until this event is formally announced, its still all up in the air, so I am classiflying it as a rumor. Since smoke and mirrors seem to be quite common these days. So a little salt required.

Here is the link to the previous rumor.

the ork glyph with the big Waaagh! is a GW store event, check one of their facebook pages. its an event about buying a: character, unit, tank and then playing games against other peopls character, unit, tank, depening on the event. basically, "if you buy models from us you get to play with them!!! BUY BUY BUY!!!" and its called waaagh! because its the GW name for crazy war. (these "games" will have about 5-10 people with their character, unit, tank).


sorry to burst this rumor bubble, as much as I'd like it to be true, this has nothing to do with orks. sorry

  1. so i get one more unit in a game if i just buy it on the day in a GW store?

  2. Logic would suggest that if GW is doing a "buy character, unit and tank then play" they wouldn't release flyers that weekend.

    Because everyone would buy the flyer and stuff anything else.

    That is just my opinion, and when have Games Workshop ever been logical?

    P.S. Lots of Space Marine characters have been done in finecast. Could some of the 'missing' characters from codices be on their way?

    1. Sorry, "Everyone would buy the flyer..." sounds like a good marketing plan to me. "Hey guys, flyers are out early if and only if you buy them this day with a character and a unit as well". Sounds like a million dollar plan to me.

    2. The way the event is rumoured is: "character, unit, tank"

      £100 or more! No flyer!

      What you are saying: "flyer, character and unit" would be a big hit! No argument there!

  3. Or it could be a way to break people into the new rules for 6e? Perhaps they are going to release earlier than speculated.

  4. "its still all up in the AIR"

    I see what you did there.

  5. So...buy & character, unit & tank & play with it that day? A quick & ugly assembly in store to get it on the table 30 minutes later sounds like a great way to waste one's money...

    1. Pretty much my thoughts exactly. Considering I usually brood at least an hour over even the most simple marine, I doubt this event is for me.

    2. Same here... And I paint the model then assemble it...

  6. GW's marketing ploys genuinely disgust me at times these days, this is such a blatant and shameless marketing ploy to get a boost to this quarter's sales with no good basis for doing so other than wanting the cash injection.

    I really hope this isn't true and that there is more to this rumor.

  7. What...? Have I missed the point somewhere? Why would people buy the stuff that day as opposed to any other? Sorry if I'm being an idiot or something, but I see no reason to even go anywhere near the stores that day...
    On the other hand, if they released the flyers that day and you could only get them by buying other stuff as well, I might see the point.

  8. I hope this fails and fails hard. Maybe if it bombs hard enough they will stop doing stupid events like these and focus on real events.

  9. so what is the super secret release that happens on that same day then?

    Cool its just an event in a few stores perhaps, but reading the description of the event seems to be a continuation of events for conversions that took place in those stores PLUS a release event @ the same time.

    So I wouldn't count the flyers out just yet.

    1. Same Anon from above...

      Also I would believe that 6th would be released more towards a big event, in this case, US Games Day with a few for early purchase there, and it coming out the first weekend in August.

    2. I think it's unlikely to be available for early release in the US Games Day because:
      1) I think they would want everyone to get it at the same time - more hype and sales this way.
      2) They're an English company. I find it highly unlikely that they would give it to the US first.
      3) I thought it would be released in July? At least that's what most rumours I've seen have said.

    3. in regards to 6th edition, Chaos and DA, have any expectation come across worthwhile for any particular assumption that has been made as of yet?

      Granted, as an English company, I would had it in time for the Games Day Europe and, but prohibiting any kinda of sense and GW in the same sentence is a feat immeasurable, I will put it for August. ;)

  10. hmm, the character troop and tank idea meaning 6th ed is coming out then is an interesting idea. This would allow GW to have in store "tutorials" for the new changes. I really hope the levee breaks on this rumor as 8 months with no new codex/edition. It's getting a bit tiresome.

  11. So no no fliers yet? Drat. Maybe they will come slightly after or near the 6ed book.

  12. The event has been advertised since 29/4 at my local store. Advert says If you buy a character in store on the event day, they let you use the store bitz box to deck him out.
