  • There will also be a Collectors edition, but no price as of yet
  • A Big Gamers Edition for 200,00€ (Something very big in it)

  • New Datasheets for anyone who bought the new models (as to be expected really).

  • Completely overhauled for new edition, ect.



  • Khorne Deathdealer/Lord of Battle
  • Necron "Megalith"
  • Rumours of Imperial/Space Marine Dual Kit
  • Necrons and Chaos might be the only actual kits this release though as mentioned regarding the Allies Matrix above.

  • "Command Citadel" that a Wraithknight can easilly hide behind

Model Releases

  • All other armies rumours to be getting an Apoc Vehicle and Aircraft.
  • ALTERNATIVELY: Superheavies will be available to all armies who don't have them via allies.
  • FW Apoc book being released in tandem with GW Apoc release.
  • Two Wave release
  • Codexes missing models will receive them when they get updated for 6th (so this could potentially keep you from seeing that missing Dark Eldar Bomber).
  • Collectors edition is a replica of an inquisitors travel case or some such. (Limited to 1500 world wide) Has the Rulebook, and some other swag.
  • Gamers edition ( Limited to 3000 worldwide) includes rulesbook and a case big enough for 4 Baneblades or 14 regular tanks.

5 June 2013 - (From Darog's Company):

- New Apocalypse rules - Khorne and Necrons focused (2 new types of Monolith rumoured)

A large Imperial Walker, (smaller than a warhound titan)
Possible Chaos Variant (might have been mistaken for the Lord of Battles)

Missing plastic models known to be created but possibly held back for the Apocalypse release:
-Eldar Bomber
-Eldar "large hover tank"
-IG Hydra
-IG Medusa / Colossus
-Tyranid Harpy

via Faeit 212

Only the Imperial Guard and Orks are not getting an a new Apocalypse vehicle, but they could be getting new apoc aircraft. It seems so that all armies will have 1 1 apoc vehicle and aircraft.

We should be seeing a FW apoc book same month as GW apoc release covering all vehicles and aircraft from previous apoc books

1st: There is a new rulebook, if anyone still questioned that. Complete overhaul. The scale of additional shenanigans will be the same as with a regular rulebook, as well as limited items. Probably a collectors- and a gamers edition aswell (allthough I am only guessing that!).

2nd: The kits we have seen so far cover all the miniatures there will be for now (Khorne "Skulldozer" and Necron "Monolith of Doom + 2D6"). However, there are three new pieces of terrain, which apperantly are of apocalyptic size. A different source told me of a 'commad citadel' behind which the Wraithknight could easily hide.

3rd: Releasedate is the 13th of July, with Preorders starting the 29th (with the new WD, as usual). This is GW's big release this year.

Via Warseer's The Dark General
It's a dual kit approx size of baneblade box, but taller model. Makes either the Deathdealer or Lord of Battles.

Also there's a bunch of new data sheets, inlcuding some for those of us that bought multiple NEW models

It's also NOT the only Chaos models coming out, along with a few other Khorne...speedy guys...

Approx price is $125

via Best_Pone
Let's see now...
You've already seen the Chaos and Necron superheavies.
You'll also get some fortifications - giant gun/missile emplacements and the like. These are also designed to hook up with the Wall of Martyrs terrain.
As well as the Apocalypse rulebook, there's also a collector's edition and a gamer's edition.

via Opatija
got some quick information about the upcoming release. It΄s "just" what the employees were told, which in some cases is not very reliable:

- Apocalyspe is mostly about formations with some minor benefits for the "units"
- There will be at least 2 waves for mini supply (Some of the missing miniatures will be released when their own 6th codex is)
- Each army is going to get a super heavy, beeing asked about such a huge release, they were told to keep the Allied Forces in mind, leaving Tyranids aside (speculated as an Imperial/SM Multipart kit) which will hit at around 125,-€ (It΄s quite possible that the Chaos thing and the Monolith are the only ones! And Baneblades/Shadowswords are accessable via Allied Forces!)
- A large/multi part piece of Terrain fitting to the "Martyrs"-Line (80,-€/50,-€/30,-€)

All in all even the Employees are not very excited for the release so better don't expect to much when reading the rumours about those gigantic Release-Wave(s)

Gamers Edition - it's going to include templates and dice but one very curious thing was said: "...containing a Apocalypse Rulebook in your language"
It was specificaly mentioned. I would not have thought GW might release a English-Only Book....but then i was reminded of Dfts...

That megalith looks interesting. Not sure about the bloodknight though

DestroyerHive 06-03-13 12:07 AM

Hold on, is that a brain in the Megalith?

I actually don't know yet. Someone mentioned it might be a C'tan or C'tan shard but there has been a lack of information on it thus far.

A Shard eh? Now that would be very interesting...

darkreever 06-03-13 01:40 AM

Wow, I might re-start Necrons just to eventually get ahold of the megalith, looks pretty cool.

Fallen 06-03-13 02:29 AM

neither of those things interest me in the slightest - although they look super cool, and the Khorne thingy is a little too "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" to me.


still can't wait for the apoc book to come though.

Jacobite 06-03-13 05:42 AM

While yes the Khorne tank thing does indeed look a lot like something out of power rangers I think its great that its non Imperial races getting toys. Thats awesome!
