If you recall from this weekend, we were discussing briefly that there are rumors of Apocalypse being redone and being brought up to speed for 6th edition. While the rumor was brief, it seems that the Apocalypse formations have been pulled from the Games Workshop website according to Loken over at Apocalypse 40k.


The apocalypse expansion is very old, dating back to the end of 4th edition, it really is time to get an update. Is this the expansion book for next summer? Its starting to look like its separate from it if GW is already pulling the datasheets and formations. Sooner is probably better than later, so bring it on... I'm ready for some big games.

Please remember that these are rumors. Standard salt required.

A few different sources are saying that we will be seeing Apocalypse Second Edition soon.  Apocalypse formations have been pulled from the Games Workshop website.  If you still need them, join the Apocalypse40K forum.  Various GW employees have said the Datasheets and formations were removed as they are obsolete and about to be replaced.  GW  typically pulls all the old merchandise from the shelves in order to get ready for the new releases.

  6. I personally believe a new apoc edition is such a no brainer, I'm surprised Stickmonkey didn't call it. It needs to be up-graded for HH 30k apoc games I have only heard appear in the HH forgeworld book.

  8. This would be awesome if they officially announced this to coincide with the "End of the Mayan Calendar/world apocalypse" date this Friday. (Just for fluff reasons.) My local GW store is holding an apocalypse event this Friday for this reason.

  9. Pulling something away usually implies that a release is IMMINENT. The most recent example being the DA being pulled only a couple of weeks before pre-orders commence. That does not sound like they would be releasing it as late as June. Apocalypse on the date of the Mayan Apocalypse would be so much win, hopefully GW management has realized this too.

    Then again, back when they renewed the website (2007? 2008?) they pulled away all the old content including articles and Chapter Approved extra rules without ever replacing any of those :|

  10. The plot thickens: GW Helsinki just announced an event on the 29th Dec... "Apocalypse Wishlist Raffle"

    Could it be...?

    1. Never mind, they're two separate events. What a difference a line break makes, especially if you're too eager (and wishing too muc) to not understand its deeper meaning.
