Apocalypse is being released for 6th edition July 6th, which is right around the corner. We have all seen the latest leaked pictures, however Faeit 212 was just coming back up when these were leaked out. I thought it was time to get the information all put together in one place, as this is looking to be an exciting release.

The pic above is a conversion (built by Mr. Pink at Modern Synthesist), and not a GW model


Apocalypse was very much indeed in need of an update, its rules often did not work, and as a result there were a lot of people just not interested in playing it. Since I am a fan of big games, this will be welcome supplement to have updated for 6th edition.

Here are a collection of rumors and pic leaks

I am getting small bits of information regarding the Apocalypse Supplement release.

Apocalypse
Only the Imperial Guard and Orks are not getting an a new Apocalypse vehicle, but they could be getting new apoc aircraft. It seems so that all armies will have 1 apoc vehicle and 1 aircraft.

Forgeworld
We should be seeing a FW apoc book same month as GW apoc release covering all vehicles and aircraft from previous apoc books

New Apocalypse slated for July 2013
Rumored models are:

A large Imperial Walker, (smaller than a warhound titan)
Possible Chaos Variant (might have been mistaken for the Lord of Battles)

Missing plastic models known to be created but possibly held back for the Apocalypse release:
-Eldar Bomber
-Eldar "large hover tank"
-IG Hydra
-IG Medusa/Colossus
-Tyranid Harpy

The latest Apocalypse bits.
A Chaos Khorne Lord of Battles:
-A large chaos vehicle from EPIC with a large tracked body, and a giant mechanical torso of a warrior of khorne. One hand holds a colossal chain axe, the other is a large gatling barrelled weapon. A gigantic daemon engine on par with a scout titan.

A large flying Necron "Megalith"
-An oversized Monolith shaped vehicle on a flying stand that can "open up" into its four corners, with internal attachments to reveal a central spherical set of internal machinery.

Back in March we had this rumor about the dominatrix

Tyranid Dominatrix
It looks like a tyrant, but with more legs.... does not look like the old epic model.

Follow the link for more playtest rules on it.


Beyond this we have had rumors of the Dark Eldar Voidraven and Imperial Guard Hydra coming for some time. Its hard to say right now what will be released alongside the Apocalypse supplement, but one little pun to keep in mind...... It will be big.

  2. Please, let the new walker be something that actually fits in the Guard, please.

    1. It sounds like it will be a Knight Titan which is loyal to the Mechanicus, so it will just be a catch all for Imperial armies not just for IG.

    2. Wouldn't it be cool if they had something like the marauder suit from starship troopers

    3. All i have heard so far model wise is the obvious Megalith and Lord or Battles and also possibly maybe Imperial Knights but untill i see more pictures im sceptical of everything.

      Tyranid Dominatrix is doubtfull but welcomed.

      as for other models like the voidraven etc well...maybe but at the rate the new codexes are being released GW need to keep something back to release with their updated codex as they wont be getting many new units.

    4. "It sounds like it will be a Knight Titan which is loyal to the Mechanicus, so it will just be a catch all for Imperial armies not just for IG."

      The Knight isn't a titan. Titan and Knight are the names of types of walkers.
      There the titans have names like Imperator Titan, Warhounf Titan etc. the Knights have names like Knight Paladin, Knigth Errant etc.

      The two were also divided into different Legios during the Heresy

  3. Everything Is Big In Nottingham.

    Finally, the Forge World IG vehicles in "cheap" plastic.

    1. Not today it wasn't. Drove to the HQ and was turned away by police road blocks. Apparently a gas main was cracked and the entire complex had to be evacuated

  4. the open megalith insides reminds me of a transformers spark.

  5. I would be BEYOND shocked if there was any other large kit in this release outside the Megalith (or whatever it is) and that Chaos War Engine. I can't imagine they would actually release one for every army. Last time they just had a Gargant and a Baneblade, doubt it will be different this time.

    1. "Summer of Flyers" being a good example of wishlisting turning first into "rumours" and then into "reliable leaks".

      Delete
    2. exactly man, its 100% the same thing. Like name one release ever in the history of GW where they released one kit for every army :)

      Delete
    3. I do think the Knight for Imperial forces is a posibility.
      But yeah no way in hell we will see more than those three and a possible 4th. (Eldar or Tau maybe?)

  6. "It seems so that all armies will have 1 apoc vehicle and 1 aircraft."

    As a Sisters player, let me just call this one as being wrong.

    1. assuming there's an "Imperial general" one in the form of the theorized Knight, then sisters could still get one.

  7. Dare I hope that the open Megalith variant is an Aeonic Orb?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sure hope those arent the final stats of the dominatrix.

    1. That dominatrix rumor is a hoax. All tyranids have 6 limbs, and a dominatrix would be bigger and better off than a hierophant.

      Delete
    2. I'd like to think the stats are off and there is a dominatrix coming with the new codex.
      Birthing tervigons is right up my alley, long live the tyranid farm.

      Delete
  9. The Dominatrix will not have S/T 6 and only 4 Wounds. It's supposed to be the brood mother of the most biologically advanced swarms; both a gargantuan monster capable of Titan-level destruction, and a psychic being rivaling most warp storms.

    It will probably have stats equal to or better than the Hierophant.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Guys I think you are interpreting the rumour wrong. Every army getting rules for 1 Apoc ground unit and 1 flyer is probably true.

    RULES for them.

    Not kits.

    Probably mostly rules for already in production Forgeworld kits. I wouldn't be surprised if the Tyranid kits were the Harridan and the BioTitan, the Necron ones that new Megalith and the Pylon etc etc.

    1. GW no longer releases rules without models, mostly due to CH

      Delete
    2. @daboarder

      I guess I wasn't clear. That's what I mean.

      It's gonna be almost entirely new rules for already existing FW kits, my examples being the Harridan and Biotitan for Tyranids, as oppossed to mostly new units. But I'm betting every army gets something they can take from the already existing FW stuff.

      Delete
  11. What about Tau did we have rumors about their new Apocalypse minis?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Most likely mainly guidelines with regard to currently within manufacturing Forgeworld packages. We would not end up being amazed when the Tyranid packages had been the actual Harridan and also the BioTitan, the actual Necron types which brand new Megalith and also the Pylon and so on and so on.
