This coming week we should be seeing some early sightings of the upcoming White Dwarf regarding 6th edition. The big mystery is what we will be happening on June 23rd. The release date for us to purchase the new rulebook is very much looking like June 30th. So what will be happening on the 23rd?

The problem is a lot of stores, both GW and Independents are giving out conflicting information. That leaves us completely in the dark on who to believe. There are stores saying they will have a store copy of the rulebook for us to preview, while others say they are only going to get a small preview of the upcoming rules changes. One thing for certain, pre-orders are likely to start on the 23rd.

Here is the lastest rumor on the subject.

Quick update, stores will probably not have a copy of the book at the 23rd. Minigames which demonstrate biggest rulechanges will available, so you can experience them. No drooling over the book, though.

  1. *cue dramatic music* THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!!!

    No, not until I get my rulebook! But a demonstration/public announcement does seem very likely....also the 23rd will have the new WD so probably tons of details and a bat rep using 6ed rules.

    1. The 23rd will NOT have the new white dwarf. White dwarfs are released on the last Saturday of each month, which in June is the 30th

  2. I heard differently, but apparently the next white dwarf is going to cost £5, but come with a free marine, either a Dark Angel or Chaos Marine. From what I've heard

    2. Could be, be nice to get a mini with white dwarf again. Got to be a good few years since they've done that.

  3. If i remember the launch of 5th edition correctly, the stores had the rule books a good week before they were available for sale... We played a few test games with those rules before i decided to buy it... I remember this as that was when i decided to get back into 40k after a while out..

  4. Doesn't GW only announce a product a week before its release? So logically the 23rd is just the announcement of 6th if the 30th is the release date.

  5. GW normally does a week, but the paints were announced two weeks before being available. My local GW had the "test it out" stations the day they were announced though.

  9. I wish you would not allow Bell of Lost Souls to exploit your research, they are really sketchy people.
