Release Order Including End Times: Skaven and Shield of Baal: Exterminatus


Exterminatus was a rumored name that many of us thought was the next release the for the Shield of Baal campaign, which ended up being Deathstorm. It seems likely now that Exterminatus is coming soon, and is the third installment of the Campaign instead of the second. Also that End Times Skaven is the next End Times book.

Here is a look at what is coming in the near future.


Please remember that these must be considered rumors. This is a part of the conversation in the comment section on Faeit 212, that was going on this morning regarding "Unexpected Allies". If you want to backtrack to see the conversation and the information being discussed, here is the link.

at least definitely not the codex as it's not been printed. 

Order of book releases is 
Codex Blood Angels
Codex Blood Angels sanguinary guard edition
Codex Blood Angels data cards
Shield of Baal Exterminatus
End times Skaven
End times Skaven (limited edition)
All of the above are at GW HQ.

Anything else isn't printed yet so won't be out until late January as all books seem to be printed about 2 months before they are released.

I think it is either hobbit related, or could be Exterminatus.

Perhaps in that case exterminatus features necron allies, but that doesn't mean we'll see a necron codex immediately.

That seems more logical given the amount of rumours that predicted necrons would be in the campaign.

  1. If they Exterminate Baal, it would be a grand change of the fluff :D

    2. They're not on Baal. They're on the shield worlds.

    3. Eh, they won't. The fluff that Captain Karl isn't even on the planet to wipe out the Tyranids, just to grab someone from the governor's blood line, is a pretty good indication the BA don't see those nids as an issue that will get to Baal.

    4. Wouldn't be the first chapter to underestimated the nids and pay dearly.

    5. Yup. Only reason Ultramar survived was GW wasn't willing to kill off the smurfs' homeworld

    6. Or maybe its because they are a first founding chapter and the blue print (pun intended) for pritty much every other codex chapter out there.

    7. i'd go with this ^ more than ^^ they are also significantly more important of all the vanilla marines as what 2/3 marines come from Ultramarine Genestocks. cannot have that world where they recruit or operate from. that'd wipe out many marines not only for Ultra's but for other chapters as well...... *throws yet another spanner into some gears*

    8. Actually, if you read the battle...they DID wipe out ultramar.
      Billions died, calgar barely escaped, and only a handful of marines survived in a single fortress...it was pretty epic.

      Its just the tyrnaid fleet was destroyed in space, so the nids on the planet were cut off and eventually destroyed.

  2. Nobody expects the ordos xenos... (bad pun is bad)

  3. Manager friend if mine mentioned that with the end times selling out so quick they accelerated all the other releases

  4. I emailed GW about the new 30mm bases on the Blood Angels and they confirmed this is the new base size for marines and that they made the bases available separately so that people could replace the 25mm that come in all the currant marine boxes should someone so wish to.
    Guess I should swap my Grey Knights over before I begin painting?
    Is anyone else going to update to the new bases?

    1. The email:

      Thanks for the email.

      The decision to put the newer marines on bigger bases, was a decision made by the design team as they thought it made the Marines look even more awesome than usual. There is no need to change all of the bases on your current miniatures if you do not wish to. We have put the larger bases up for order so that people who wish to have all of their miniatures on the same sized bases can.

    2. I wonder what that will mean for sisters. Maybe it will extend to all power armor.

      Aren't bigger bases bad for combat armies. Less in that 2 inch?

      Delete
    3. Yeah, what is to stop people buying SMALLER bases for the newer marines?

      Delete
    4. Additional:
      Especially if you were to Deep Strike them, concentric rings of bases, why not shave of those 5mm ...
      If they don't have DS as standard assume I'm talking Planetstrike.

      Delete
    5. I will be, 50+ to do but they're right. They do look better, especially characters 25mm bases just doesn't seem to do Mephiston and the like justice.

      Delete
  5. Why would the BA codex come out but not the new kits?

    1. The fact that this list contains only books and the source refers to printing suggests to me that he isn't addressing model releases, only book releases. Mentally fit in models around these books as appropriate.

  6. Does anyone know what will be in the Sanguinary Guard edition? ...do those typically come with the psychic cards, objective cards, and dice?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Both cards, yes and objective markers plus art prints. The dice...not sure about as they're a very recent addition to the range.

  7. What stands out for me in this rumour is that they've called it End Times: Skaven. All the previous ET books are named for an individual (be it a god, demigod or mortal champion) so it seems hugely unlikely that this one will be simply entitled "Skaven" hence my guess is this rumour is purely conjecture. It is reasonable conjecture and probably a correct guess. But it is clearly no more than a guess.

    1. Agreed; surely End Times: Kritislik (or someone else) seems more in keeping with the format they've established so far.
