Hi all does anyone know whether these formations are it or whether there are others in the book as well? The reason I ask is that I find it odd that there is no mention of the SM Linebreaker Squadron, among others that I would have assumed would have been in the book. I will be kind of crushed inside if they've gotten rid of that formation, as it was one of my favorites because it gave the SM chapters the ability to throw pie plates around without having to take an allied Banblade or that totally unfluffy piece of crap Fellblade datasheeet from those wankers at BoLS. Also does anyone know if the likes of the Thunderhawk Gunship or Brass Scorpion made it into the book or whether they will be included in a future FW Apocalypse publication, or IA2 even, in the case of the Thunderhawk?

I'm guessing there will be others for things like FW kits, but I suspect if GW can sell it and its in the book then it would likely be up and available to buy in the "I'm too lazy to click 3 times" formations tab.

I doubt all FW kits will see the book though, may just get one or two for each race then FW will likely release their 4th(?) version of their apoc books

There are some strange changes to a couple of the old ones as well as a few of the common ones be missing. Get for ready of Apoc "lock and" reloaded 2.0 which may have those in

No word as of yet either officially or via rumors. I'm curious about some of the same things.

Not putting the thunderhawk in would be a very very odd move, I really like the brass scorpion but could see that playing second fiddle to the new chaos plastic kit and being shoved in a supplement

Apparently Apocalypse is getting it's own supplements based on specific campaigns. Any ideas other than Armageddon?

I would guess conflicts involving Black Crusade/Cadia/Eye of Terror, Hive Fleet Leviathan, The Maelstrom and maybe the Assault on Baal. But those are purely guesses and GW could just create new battles/campaigns much like the IA books.

The Collector's Edition has the stuff for another campaign that will be released later in the year, but not beyond that.

Seeing as superheavies now no longer use structure points, is there any word on how their damage table looks like? I'm guessing is looks somewhat like the old one, at least I can't imagine them having an explode result.

No sign yet. With us being 2 weeks out we only have what GW trickle-feeds to us.
