Late last night I posted up the very latest on what to expect out of an Apocalypse release, and it basically comes down to models for CSM, Necrons, Books, and Terrain. The most important piece of information is to realize that the release is set for July 13th, not the 6th like previously thought.

So check out below for even more details.


Please remember that until something is officially released, everything is considered to be rumors.

It's a dual kit approx size of baneblade box, but taller model. Makes either the Deathdealer or Lord of Battles.

Also there's a bunch of new data sheets, inlcuding some for those of us that bought multiple NEW models

It's also NOT the only Chaos models coming out, along with a few other Khorne...speedy guys...

Approx price is $125

Let's see now...
You've already seen the Chaos and Necron superheavies.
You'll also get some fortifications - giant gun/missile emplacements and the like. These are also designed to hook up with the Wall of Martyrs terrain.
As well as the Apocalypse rulebook, there's also a collector's edition and a gamer's edition.

got some quick information about the upcoming release. It´s "just" what the employees were told, which in some cases is not very reliable:

- Apocalyspe is mostly about formations with some minor benefits for the "units"
- There will be at least 2 waves for mini supply (Some of the missing miniatures will be released when their own 6th codex is)
- Each army is going to get a super heavy, beeing asked about such a huge release, they were told to keep the Allied Forces in mind, leaving Tyranids aside (speculated as an Imperial/SM Multipart kit) which will hit at around 125,-€ (It´s quite possible that the Chaos thing and the Monolith are the only ones! And Baneblades/Shadowswords are accessable via Allied Forces!)
- A large/multi part piece of Terrain fitting to the "Martyrs"-Line (80,-€/50,-€/30,-€)

All in all even the Employees are not very excited for the release so better don't expect to much when reading the rumours about those gigantic Release-Wave(s)


Gamers Edition - it's going to include templates and dice but one very curious thing was said: "...containing a Apocalypse Rulebook in your language"
It was specificaly mentioned. I would not have thought GW might release a English-Only Book....but then i was reminded of Dfts...

  1. A bit of a shame. Apocalypse is a prime opportunity to get some unreleased big stuff out there. The Lord of battles lark - I'd much prefer new daemon plastics: fleshhounds, fiends and yes, greater daemons.

    OK, that's a desperately selfish wish but having a super bit kit is a bit unusual. It's also a missed opportunity not to haul Forgeworld units in to have ten terminators pour out of a Spartan tank or use a vulture inside a guard army.

  2. And, if I might add, the silver tower would have been far nicer. Make it a flyer and fill it with psychic powers? Or the doom wing, or firelord or *anything* that fills a huge gap in the Daemon codex?

    Heck, the silver tower would be glorious - fluted crystal columns along the same lines as the artwork in the Daemon codex? Bah, just a missed opportunity.

  3. I am wondering whether there will be new Greater Daemons at all because, as you said pegboard, this would have been the perfect opportunity to release them. Although saying that they did release a few extra units for other armies (Jetbike squads, Chaos Biker unit etc.) and just didn't tell anyone so it's possible that they might do something similar? Probably not with Greater Daemons because they'd be worthy of a huge release on their own but with the other things you mentioned...

    1. Very honestly? I doubt it. I think these giant models are a response to the Privateer colossals.

      No, I think the releases will be limited and a bit unexciting with giant kits that don't really fit into a codex but are big and flash and worse, short term.

      Yes, there's kit coming from historical work but it doesn't fit what those armies are missing range wise or force wise.

      In all, a bit uninspiring really, especially if there's only two kits and terrain. It's difficult to get inspired by terrain but a Dark Eldar Voidraven, an Imperial Knight, Guard artillery, Chaos Daemon flyers. Ah, I could whine for England.

    2. The point right now is to get all codices up to date, and give everyone a little something new (thematically). Greater Demons will be among those models that get updates via splash releases later on.

      6th edition is going to last, but all of the books will be updated before end of 2015. What else are they going to release? Updates to old kits.

      I would much prefer we get all updated, close-together books, rules, and a few new toys than focus on old models.

  4. I'm sure it had been discussed at nauseum but maybe the reason we are being spoiled by all these releases after a decade of sporadic at best releases is because they would like the stocks to increase before a dale is done. What better way to show potential buyers the value of a company then to boost sales by releasing so much?

    1. They aren't really releasing more than before, it's just different.

      Rather than release one book and spend 8 months pumping models for one army, they are getting all the books out so we have balanced rules, everyone's army up to date, and they can leak in updates to old models later. Plus, everyone will at least get SOMETHING this way, which is far better than the old system of waiting 6 years before your army sees anything again.

  5. I suppose the last time apoc was released they used it to plug gaps in the model line so we could see something similar happen here?

  6. So what happened to the rumoured kits for the Imperial Knights and Tyranid Dom?

    Surely this would have been a perfect opportunity to release something for everyone?

    Oh well, i can only hope what we are hearing is wrong and there is more than what we are seeing.

  7. NEVER EVER LISTEN TO THE DARK GENERAL, look at his chaos rumours for why

  8. TO be honest it'll be nice to have Apocalypse updates, just as long as the formations don't get outdated the second a new codex comes out like with nids last time round.
