There are two new products available for pre-order for Apocalypse involving the Imperial conflict with the Tau in the Damocles Crusade. Interestingly enough this time around, there is a companion book called Damocles: An Apocalypse Anthology, showing that its very likely that in the future we will see a lot of companion book releases.
These are up for pre-orders now.
What first catches my eyes of course are the White Scars. Still on my list of armies I would love to be playing.

Two centuries ago, the Imperium of Man and the upstart Tau Empire fought to a standstill in the Damocles Gulf. Now, as the 41st millennium draws to a close, the Tau have returned. As the world of Agrellan falls under attack, the White Scars and Raven Guard rush to its defence, but with the skilled Commander Shadowsun leading the alien forces, the Space Marines and their allies are hard pressed. Kor’sarro Khan, Huntmaster of the White Scars, swears that he will win the day in the most direct way possible – by taking Shadowsun’s head.
Damocles is a 416 page hardback anthology by Ben Counter, Guy Haley, Phil Kelly & Josh Reynolds. Exclusive to games-workshop.com, blacklibrary.com, Games Workshop stores and independent trade retailers.
