This is the latest I have received about the new and most upcoming Games Workshop release, Apocalypse, and what the books will entail.

This is a long time coming and keeps up with the heavy schedule of releases that Games Workshop has kept up for us. Apocalypse hopefully will be coming with a number of model releases, that will scale up our games to the massive level that Apocalypse games are so well known for.

We know because of the early White Dwarf leaks that the supplement will be released on July 6th, exactly one month from now. So get ready, this is going to be a big release.

Please remember that these are rumors, so salt is always required.

the Apocalypse release will be three books
-The Standard Book Edition will be 60,00€
-There will also be a Collectors edition, but no price as of yet
-A Big Gamers Edition for  200,00€ (Something very big in it)

  1. I think the "big gamers edition" is only the "one-click" option.

    4. The rumors had been saying that there would be a Chaos/Imperium model, but the Lord of Battle-type model doesn't really look compatible with the Imperium.

      Now that we're only a month away from the release date, the lack of information on the purported Imperium model worries me.

    5. Impossible say from the single photo, but what if at least some of the sprues could be used in a (slightly downscaled) Leviathan? I mean, it has tracks and a tower-like superstructure with WTFHUEG gun sticking from its "belly".

      Though all those skulls and Khornate logos, even on the tracks would make it a tad difficult.

  3. Big Gamers? With something big inside, too? That's exploitable...

    2. Wild guess:
      - bucket of dice
      - some exclusive terrains
      - some models for stratagems
      - Collector's edition of the book
      - t-shirt
      - New Apo templates?

      This is just amy wild guess. Unless there is some "never to be released again" cool terrain or something, the basic edition will be enough: will GW have the taste of going "3 for the price of 2" or something on their big kits at release? That's where I'd be in.

    3. Last time they released Apocalypse, there was a backpack. I still have and use that backpack as it fits a small GW case perfectly.

  4. If its anything nearly as useful as the bag that came with the 6th edition BRB rule book I'll be excited.

  5. Maybe the Big gamers edition is actually a Big Brothers edition that comes with your very own squat?

    2. A boats a boat, but the mystery box could be anything, even a boat. You know how much we wanted one of those.

    1. There will be a digital edition. All of their books will likely have a digital edition.

    1. Nobody has "news" right now. Just a few pics from White Dwarf (which will continue to get people and bloggers in trouble), and some speculation. As we've seen the last 12 months, even the most reliable rumor-mongers have been in the dark and/or wrong.

  10. Blame the new Hobbit film series for your lack of spoilers, investors in the new trilogy don't want anyone to know what Smaug looks like until Dec 2013. Any disclosure/leak will face retribution. We all know this it's been in place since lotr yet still we cling to this notion that info will slip through unabated and we will dance and bask in its glory.....
