Default 40k Apocalypse Rumours

Predictions Section

Rumoured Release
13 July 2013

General Information
Author:
State: Most likely ready to ship (<30 days prior to release)
Release information: Three books:
  • The Standard Book Edition will be 60,00€
  • 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)

Rules
  • New Datasheets for anyone who bought the new models (as to be expected really).
  • Allies Matrix was considered when designing things so "new" superheavies might be access to those through allies instead.
  • Completely overhauled for new edition, ect.

Scenarios

Formations

Superheavies
  • 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.

Fortifications
  • Giant gun/missile fortifications (Designed to hook up to the Wall of Martyrs)
  • "Command Citadel" that a Wraithknight can easilly hide behind

Model Releases
  • Khorne Deathdealer/Lord of Battle Dual Kit
  • Necron "Megalith" UPDATE: Rumoured name is "Tesseract Vault"
  • Large Imperial Walker (smaller than Warhound, knight perhaps?)
  • Dark Eldar Bomber (as put forth last year)
  • Eldar "Large Hover Tank"
  • IG Hydra (has a FW model, so doubtful)
  • IG Medusa/Colossus (also has FW models, so doubtful)
  • Tyranid Harpy
  • Space Marine "Master of ______" models

Other
  • Khorne and Necron focus claimed
  • Only Imperial Guard and Orks not getting new Apocalypse vehicles due to existing kits, but may still get an Apoc aircraft
  • 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):
Quote:
- 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

Apocalypse
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.

Forgeworld
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...

Hold on, is that a brain in the Megalith?


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

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...

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

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

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.
