Forge World and the New Warhammer 40,000

We’ve seen already today what the launch line-up for the new Warhammer 40,000 will be from our main studio (and if you didn’t then check it out here).

As well as your Citadel Miniatures, we know that loads of you love to include Forge World models in your forces or even make whole armies of these more specialised kits. Don’t worry, we have you covered.

Much like Citadel Miniatures, rules for the extensive Warhammer 40,000 Forge World range will be made available in a series of Index books. The first two of these will be available alongside the new edition of Warhammer 40,000, available to pre-order on the 3rd of June. These first two books will cover the forces of the Adeptus Astartes and their traitorous kin.

Rules for all the rest of the Warhammer 40,000 Forge World range, including the myriad xenos races of the galaxy and the massed forces of the Astra Militarum and their accompanying Imperial Agents, will all be appearing in additional Index books that set to be released before the end of June. Every single Warhammer 40,000 miniature that Forge World make today will be covered, as well as a few classic ones. Also included are rules for a few characters who do not yet have a model, such as some heroes and villains of the Badab Wars. On top of that, several units will be made available to factions that never previously had access to them, and on Wednesday this week, we’ll be taking a look at one of them when we see our first Forge World datasheet for the new edition.

For you Horus Heresy fans out there, Forge World will be announcing the future of that game system at Warhammer Fest this weekend. We’ll bring you the news from the event as it breaks, right here on the Warhammer Community site.

That sounds like 30k will not be the same system

I'm looking forward to using all my Contemptors actually as Contemptors, rather than counts as.

This set excites me! I will be grabbing it when it becomes available in SA! Always wanted some death guard. These will round out the collection

Exactly @Brother Lucian , 200 years for the whole liberation. We can expect 100 years timelapse since Guilliman will have to free just half of the empire (the dark empire part is just lost, for now), so plenty of time for the BigMarines to earn veteranship and dreadnoughtification.

So far the most annoying thing is how much they hyped not needing books anymore then poof preorders for books you need and don't worry we will make those books obsolete in a few months when we do individual factions

Didn't they start this all off saying that the new rule set and "codexs", or faction books or whatever, would be a free PDF to start with?

That's what I assumed...

I'll be honest, if that's not the case then this new edition is going to be put on hold until I can acquire funds for books, since my funding is towards models...

Near as I can tell they are spitting out a PDF of the basic rules and data sheets. It will not have any 'Advanced Rules'. I'm betting anyone that has been playing will view the game as unplayable without the advanced rules.

Hmm, on mass the new marines look impressive. I am of mixed opinion on the nurgle elements, 3 of the death guard look great, 1 needs some serious de horning and the other 3 look like blight kings with guns. And I'm sorry but what's with all the stupid grinning faces on the pox walkers? The blight drone again looks good but not a patch on the original FW sculpt. Characters look like they busted open the standard nurgle bits. Hopefully the rest of the death guard releases pull up their socks a bit. Factions books look interesting, anyone know out about this....
Index: Chaos: Heretic Astartes, Chaos Daemons, Questor Traitoris.
It's the description of the book I got in a sales email.

Indexes books truly stinks: they already said there will be codexes for everyone so it's just 20 bucks thrown in the garbage and waiting (6 months tops) to be rendered obsolete. I'm running out of hipe, honestly. Old GW playing peekabo under this new reassuring mask, if you ask me.
The pricing, if confirmed, seems a bit lower than usual, so that's something.
