From the Forgeworld newsletter today, a glimpse of the Imperial Armour Apocalypse book is out, including a table of contents, all released by Forgeworld. For those you that are heading to Games Day Memphis, this is your chance to pick up the book.


Of course everyone wants to read through the table of contents. One thing to notice is that there is a Warzone listed. We could very easily see Warzone releases being both a Forgeworld and standard Games Workshop.

    1. It's a formation of a bunch of tigersharks, iirc.

    2. My initial guess for the Titan-Killer Cadre was something along the lines of the previous Destructor Phalanx, but using Riptides instead of Broadsides (and with a formation rule that generates a D weapon effect).

      But a formation of Tigershark AX-1-0s seems more likely, given that they already have a D weapon, and this would work with the vignette text on p. 185 of Taros Campaign 2nd Edn.

  2. Are the Chaos vehicles Relic Predator and Blood Slaughterer Onslaught new or have I missed something?

    1. Blood Slaughterer Onslaught is probably just a apocalypse formation of 3+ Blood Slaughterers I reckon.

    2. The old BS onslaught was a formation of 3 x 3 BS, with a single command BS.

  3. Either my eyesight is worse than I thought, or the Storm Eagles have all fallen to chaos...

    1. Hmm that is strange... Unless it's in one of the new editions of Imperial Armour which is published already...?

  5. I was reading on the foreworld web site the other day that one of the designers may be designing a new titan for 40k

  6. Poor Dark Eldar are still stuck with the same old stuff - assuming the Slaughterhost is just a formation of Tantaluses. Maybe it'll be a big version of a Talos that finds it even harder to catch up with the rest of the army.

    1. Nah, there's a bunch of 40k stuff in the book too like Malanthropes and Contemptor Dreads. I am interested to see the formations, hopefully they won't ALL use the ROB board. City of the Dead sounds particularly interesting.

  11. Just an FYI guys that the previous Imperial Armour Apocalypse books have all had 40K approved units in them as well, these 'compendiums' effectively consolidate rules for units from a lot of the other Imperial Armour book. Hence why Contemptors and Malanthropes, amongst many others, are listed.

  12. The Tau entries are getting ridiculous. How many times do they have to re-publish the rules for the Manta, Tiger shark and Orca?
    To my knowledge, they've been published in :
    - IA3 Taros Campaign
    - IA Apocalypse
    - IA Apocalypse (second edition)
    - IA Aeronautica
    - IA3 Taros campaign (second edition)
    - new IA Apocalypse

    It gets worse when you consider the last 4 books on that list have all been released within 2 years only, with the last two being 2 months apart (and probably no rule change). It gets even worse when you consider that these entries (aside from the AX-1-0 variant of the Tiger Shark) are both worthless and very expensive, and almost never seen in Apoc games. Hell, they probably have sold less than a hundred Mantas worldwide, and they still made a formation that revolves around it (with useless bonuses of course), same with the Orca.

    Rules for the Forgeworld Tau entries are all up to date thanks to IA3se, so that is needed now for Tau from IA books is useful and playable formations, nothing else.

    Wasted opportunities.

  13. I really look forward to seeing 40k Fellblade rules. Didn't expect those.
