This came in this morning, and it looks like an email sent to stores detailing out novels, limited edition release pricing, and a little information on the Age of Sigmar release.

Take a look at the latest information regarding Dark Angels and the Age of Sigmar.

Please take these as rumors, until we get something more official.

There will be a $165 limited edition web codex this week for DA. There is 
also a new hardback (the unforgiven), audiobook, and collection of short 
stories (lords of caliban,hardback).

Also:
Age of Sigmar is a new Fantasy system that will support all GW 
Fantasy models currently sold by GW.

It will continue the narrative where the End Times Books left off.

It is not Warhammer 9th Edition.

Print out the Trail poster (attached) to be put in front of the Warhammer 
rules books and Army books.

Ask people to sign up on the “Interest sheet” (attached) so that when we 
have the more detailed info you can share it with them.

It is able to be pre-ordered on 07-04-15 (Save the date of your 
pre-order party!)

It is able to be sold at your store on 07-11-15 (Save the date 
for your launch party!)

  1. Ltd ed codex was a given, it will be interesting to see if it is a 2 week release, I still believe the da vets box could do with renewing.

  2. Hmm, a book about Cypher coming out at the same time as the codex. Perhaps there will be something regarding the Fallen in there. Not likely, but something I've wondered about since Master of Sanctity's cliffhanger ending.

  3. These two things together are the best. Can't wait for payday at the end of June!

    1. I dunno. Maybe the poster they include in web orders, like the Adeptus Mechanicus poster? But in this case it would be a wee pamphlet with pictures of the codex and new Chaplain on it.

    2. ^ i think that part of the new/rumor info is actually about whfb/AoS. not 40k, could be wrong but it's under fantasy info's not really the 40k heading/infos.

  5. Well if this is just leaving off after the end of times and not 9th or even something brand new then maybe I won't be particularly interested after all. Hope it is something great with round bases fantasy style easy to learn and play. 40k has so many special rules I can't bear to learn anymore lol

    1. It isn't going to be called "9th", that's for sure.

      It is DEFINITELY brand new. The fluff just takes over where the last left off. The game will be radically new, however.

      Delete
    2. It surely can't be too radical because they're saying that the existing models will still be usable. That can only mean that rules in Army Books/Stats etc are still applicable for the most part.

      Delete
    3. Hold on a minute for a quick GW history lesson.

      When 40k went from 2nd to 3rd edition it was the most radical change the game had ever seen. We were told all our models would be usable in the new game.

      IN PRACTICE this didn't always work out. Many weapon and wargear options were sacked. Eldar Guardians lost lasguns. Space Marines lost hand flamers, power weapons and power fists on the rank & file, etc. etc.

      Yes your current models will remain "usable". However don't surprised if you can't represent units in the new army lists with EXACTLY the same weapons and equipment.

    4. I just hope its a good thing for all parties

    6. Brand (as in warhammer, nike, coke/coca cola-brand names) is the same as is with slight twist in name but essentially as far as we know it is the same core mechanics, same fluff and game universe, it only changes in name alone, this alone does not justify a claim of it being "brand" new, even though it is soon to be "brand new" (previously unreleased/new)

      note: the brand is not changing and thus is NOT new.

      Delete
    7. also saying it is completely new is untrue by virtue and nature of the game itself: is it warhamer: check, is it fantasy: check, does it have deities from current warhammer: check. will it require much the same skills we have today to play and construct miniatures: check.

      what is new: bubblehammer, a name change and a facelift.....i don't see that as being in the context of Brand New....because essentially it is the same game (slight mechanic alteration- possibly) and isn't new, new but = old lore new game name.

  6. Fuck the dark angels, I want to see actual NEWS on the Age of Sigmar. Not the same damn things we already know getting rehashed every other day.

    4. Boooooooooo! I play WFB and Dark Angels. You can like both.

    5. Do you guys think natfka has info he's withholding because he thinks all people want is more dark angel info? If there was more age of Sigmar info he'd be giving it to us.

      Delete
    6. ^ do i think that....nope.....other guys might, but i believe he doesn't (based on the answer we are given each time this question arises)

      Delete
    7. I think that Nat sometimes withholds info for a number of reasons, like it's too soon to verify it's plausibility, it's from a dubious source, seems far too daft to publish, would compromise someone's identity too easily...

      But most of all I think that Nat posts info that he thinks is relevant at the time, not because people want to know it at a particular time.

    8. At this point I only know what everyone else knows about the Age of Sigmar. Of course I have just started this morning and it takes me an hour to get my bearings, check sources, look around, dig through emails, twitter, facebook, messages, and forum talk.

      I keep getting 9th edition information for fantasy as well, and as of right now I am holding that. It's source related and because until we figure out what is going on, if the info is horribly wrong regarding Fantasy its like poking someone in the ribs, just mean. Longtime players are very concerned right now about their armies.

      I want to find some accurate info just as badly as they do

      Delete
  7. Well, that previous thread about the Age of Sigmar novel suggested that people that died in the End Times can come back from the dead, so I'd say that the characters with models that where killed off will most likely come back in some form. The fact that all the current models are supported is definately a good thing. I'm excited to see what new stuff there will be!

  8. At one of the stores I go to regularly, the owner mentioned the interest sheet and asked if I and the person I was playing at the time wanted to go over it. I thought he was joking.

  9. Unforgiven book for DA by Gav Thorpe - he does good work!

  10. Hardback Audiobook? Now I'm curious ūüėÖ

    1. "," was overlooked. it says: "There is also a new hardback (the unforgiven) "," audiobook "," and collection of short stories (lords of caliban "," hardback)"

      they are separate items, unfortunately (not a harback audiobook, not sure how that would work tbh)

  11. I want more rumors on the Dark Angels. Spill it! :)

  12. Not 9th as in another "End Times" style limited edition book that will be worthless the second 9th edition comes out? Think I will wait 6 months to a year. After all I have 4 end times books collecting dust now.

    1. I'm guessing you didn't follow the rumors 6 months ago. :( Even when Nagash came out it was pretty clear it was the set up for a reboot. I'm not bagging on you, but campaign books always have a limited shelf life. My Pandorax Campaign book bought just over a year ago has never been used for game play, but I knew that going in. I just wanted it for the story and awesome studio shots of their Pandorax themed board.

      But the End Times wasn't a snapshot of an isolated campaign between a few forces. It was a deliberate dismantling of a setting from the get go. If you enjoyed the fluff then it was worth it. If you bought it for the army lists then... :(

  13. I didn't buy end times, if GW would have been a little more upfront about ADDING a new chapter which would be final chapter for the fluff I have been reading for 25 years I would have bought. I was trying to keep up with the 40k double edition at the time. I really hope GW hasn't destroyed all that was, I'm geeked they are progressing the story lines finally I just wish I could understand where my lifelong hobby is going... I'm really liking the direction 40k has gone, even if Thomas will call me out for liking what I pay for and not bitching. I just wish GW better explained the direction they are taking my hobby worlds....

    1. fun fact: no one cares what you buy, they only care if you bitch. same deal with me i do believe (and everyone else that comments here as a reader of this blog). people think it's irrelevant what you buy (because let's face it the sheer volume people buy at, meaning what you buy is well....irrelevant, if you gained joy from it bonus points) the fact no one here is likely to play each other and judge you on what you say/type.

      if you want to be called out: your not as loyal to the hobby as you make out. (but then again majority of us aren't these days so your not alone there)

  14. Sign up with your local game store for news. Lols. Should I also register with the local pony express or get a telegraph machine? Someone needs to introduce the noobs at GW to the internet and natfka.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Who really cares about fantasy either way?

    3 people?
    And some that say they are intressted and will Check it out but never end up playing or buying anyway.

    This is like skitari... Were people got like 3-4 boxes & a dex and now its on eBay unpainted being sold becaus they suddenly dont want to Start the Army after the initial hype.

    I allready dont care about this Sigmar stuff.

    1. End times sold more than several months of 40k combined at the GW store I frequent. There are plenty of people who care about fantasy, but the system has been largely neglected with very few actual releases.

    2. Well at the very least I can tell you there are 1100+ people that are part of the Warhammer Youtube community so maybe not as many to impress you but now you know there are slightly more than 3.
