Apocalypse pre-orders are now less than a week away, and any news on that front has been hard coming. Some recent small bits have been slowing forming though, and here is the latest bits on its release.


Below it is interesting to see that the shadowsword will be getting a new box. For those that do not know, large kits are getting non-shrink wrapped boxes that open from the end (at least as far as the first of these goes). They have a very strong tab on the end, but is apparently the new thing. I am assuming after reading this bit, that both the Chaos Marine and Necron releases coming with apocalypse will be in the same box.

Otherwise below we have a confirmation about UK Gamesday tickets, and apoc kits seem to have been removed in the UK as of Friday.

As you know apocalypse is coming,
Apocalypse book, apocalypse reload book and apocalypse templates have now been removed from uk shop floors (active after closing friday 21st)

July's White Dwarf will have all info

Releases will be two weeks later (due to independence day) on July 15th

Black library will also be releasing their GW exclusive books at model release weekend, as well as a tie in audio book

The shadowsword is currently unavailable, this is to allow for bigger kits to be boxed like the wraithknight

UK Gamesday tickets will also be available, your previous post is accurate, £35 each, no parent tickets.   Stores wont be running coaches unless they have multiple staff.  Every stores Armies on Parade winner will get a free ticket

  1. Wonder of DE will get something of interest... And will there be Xenos scenery?

  3. I've a horrible feeling the releases will be small (but big kits). Any re-boxes will probably come with a big price increase.

    An ideal would be to see new plastic greater daemons. Unlikely though! I expect three bits of big terrain, the two new models and that's it. I'd like to be proved wrong.

    1. For the release, that's all we will get, but there will be lots of little waves and supplements that follow.

      40k is going to be an ongoing machine. No more are we waiting 6+ months between releases. This will push things out almost every month so that everybody gets a little something.

  4. I didn't realize the UK celebrated July 4th too! Cool - we celebrate our independence from each other!

    I guess they can change the size of templates and such, but I'm waiting more for new info on units.

    1. I don't think they celebrate independence day in the UK. I'm guessing the reason behind it is to make sure that the american players don't have to wait longer and to have one global release date

    2. We most certainly don't celebrate it! :P
      To be honest, if you asked most Brits today why the 4th of July was significant the most they could tell you would be 'USA' and 'fireworks'... xD

    1. Most of it we have seen. Some of it helps though, as this is not a rehash, but from a different source and the box thing is new.

      Its also a great lead in to what I have coming later today and sets up more rumors that I have ready to reveal

    2. New box rumours suggest price hike and it would surprise me if it doesn't include the stompa and bainblade. I can't see the new kits being £70 same as the wraith knight, I also can't see them keeping the stompa at £70 while other apocalyptic units cost more.

  6. Why would Independance day interfere with the release? Independance day is the 4th and the release SHOULD be the 6th?

    1. Because it is on a Thursday, that means 60% of workers will also take Friday off and there will be no one to make the deliveries...

      I say 60%, as an increasing number of businesses have stopped closing on national holiday's. It is now just an excuse to go out and shop more on "deals" - which also perplexes me as to why they moved it back.

      If anything, they should have moved it to the 4th to coincide with all the fireworks and "one click deals" that they seem to want to push.

    2. I don't really see the connection, hardly anyone in the UK notices independence day. The only thing it seems to affect here are financial markets and not much else.

  7. Don't know why whoever gave this info is saying 15th... That's a Monday. New released from GW are a Saturday are they not? Which is the 13th

  8. As an independent retailer i would love it to be 2 weeks after white dwarf, we have to order products blind when it releases 1 week after white dwarf

  10. "The shadowsword is currently unavailable, this is to allow for bigger kits to be boxed like the wraithknight"

    What does the Shadowsword being unavailable have to do with this?
