End Times Nagash and Shield of Baal Availability


Lately we have seen new book releases sell out within hours of pre-releases going live for both the End Times and Warhammer 40k. With so many people missing out, without a softcover release of these books, the only they would remain accessible is through digital formats.


We have word now that the books for the End Times will not only get a softcover release, but will also be an "always available" book, although direct only. The same will happen with the Shield of Baal books.

Please remember that this must be considered a rumor.

Hi Natfka! I just talked to my local GW manager, who had just returned from a sales training event in Dallas, about the availability of Shield of Baal: Leviathan. He confirmed that a softback version of End Times I: Nagash was coming, that it is going to be direct-only, and will be an "always available" product, and that a reprint of SoB:L in some form would almost certainly happen at some point as well.

  2. Ah the Internet. They yell about how crappy every release is, and then cry when it sells out and they can't buy it.

    5. To be fair, Tyranid players are particularly bad.

  3. To be clear, the manager didn't say anything about Glottkin to me, but I didn't think to ask either. Still, if they are reprinting the one, I think reprints of the others is a safe bet.

    Also, I've seen some chatter on twitter about GW managers saying the Nagash reprint will be up for preorder this weekend, for whatever that's worth.

  4. The Khaine book has an "abridged" paperback version, 80pgs for £30. It was in the leaked release list from WD.

    Seems the paperbacks will be rules-only from the page count. Sucks, because the lore for the End Times seems pretty outstanding thus far.

    1. its nothing i cant get online, but id rather have the rules in hand for games, without having to carry all the fluff around

    2. Paperbacks appear to be the full book not just rules only. There are posts on most facebook pages of GW stores in the UK about their release now and some confirm the books are exactly the same content as the hard back version.

    3. Yeah, the softbacks contain all the fluff

    4. Ah, good news! The abridged Khaine is definitely 80pgs so they're possibly selling the normal paperback *and* an abridged one for people who just want rules?
