Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse

Have you ever wanted to field your entire Warhammer 40,000 collection in a single game? What about the pipedream of many an Adeptus Astartes player of unleashing the might of a full Space Marine Battle Company (and more besides)? Well, with the incredible new Apocalypse boxed set, playing massive battles with your Warhammer 40,000 miniatures has never been easier!



This new game consists of an innovative rules system that enables you to fight even the largest battles to completion in a matter of hours, with minimal downtime between player actions.

Along with the Apocalypse Field Manual (your complete guide to playing cinematic, massed battles in the 41st Millennium), the set includes dozens of pop-out card tokens for keeping track of the action, from orders assigned to each Detachment to large and small blast markers that represent a unit’s embattled status. There are also a whopping 300 Command Asset cards – split between universal and faction-specific cards – from which you can create a custom deck to give you the edge in battle. Command Assets are used in Apocalypse to unleash devastating psychic powers and pull off cunning strategies, so you’ll want to make sure you choose the best combination for the units and Detachments at your disposal.

On that note, if you want even more variety in the tactical nuances at your disposal, the Apocalypse Command Assets set offers you a further 100 cards to choose from.



Other handy accessories include an Apocalypse dice set, which includes 25 six-sided dice (D6s) and 25 twelve-sided dice (D12s) – after all, this is Apocalypse, so you’ll be rolling bucketloads of dice! – and packs of transparent Movement Trays designed for Citadel 25mm, 32mm and 40mm Round Bases to help speed up gameplay and get your vast infantry formations stuck into the action!

We are making all of the datasheets for Apocalypse available as FREE downloads at launch, so you’ll be able to start playing straight away. Some of the more popular units will also have cards of their datasheets available to buy if you want a handy physical reference.





Apocalypse Battalions

To help start a new collection or bolster an existing force, we’ve created 10 hand-picked Battalions, each comprising the core of an Apocalypse Detachment and saving you money. These Battalions are only available in limited numbers, so be sure to secure yours early to avoid disappointment.





















Armoured Support

The mighty Baneblade of the Astra Militarum and its seven variants (yes, seven variants!) of super-heavy battle tank will also be rolling out for the Apocalypse in a spiffy new-look box. If you need some serious fire support, look no further than these steel behemoths of war.





Meanwhile, Adeptus Astartes armies will be able to call upon the ferocious firepower of a Primaris Repulsor Executioner. If you thought the standard Repulsor was covered in guns, you haven’t seen anything yet!







Not to be outdone, the Adeptus Mechanicus are also set to receive a new hover vehicle in the form of a dual kit. The Skorpius Disintegrator offers some heavy firepower, while the Skorpius Dunerider will provide your Skitarii units with a swift troop transport.





Black Library

If you’re chomping at the bit to unleash massed warfare, then why not ramp up the excitement by picking up Josh Reynolds’ new Space Marine Conquests novel too – aptly titled Apocalypse! In it, forces from the Imperial Fists, White Scars and Raven Guard mobilise to defend the cardinal world of Almace from an invasion by the twisted traitors of the Word Bearers.



All of these Apocalyptic goodies will be up for pre-order as of Saturday 29th June – which is also Warhammer Day! – so be sure to head down to your local store and place your pre-orders while you join in the celebration. We’ll be revealing more about Warhammer 40,000: Apocalypse over the coming days and weeks (starting with an overview of the game tomorrow), so be sure to check back with us every day!

Just in time with the new paints to get all that grey taken care of.

Another nail in the old marines coffin as they get no bundles.

No surprise there. They really are being written out as well- per Devastation of Baal the BA and descended chapters are 60-70% Primaris already due to the casualties they suffered and the reinforcements that turned up afterwards. And everything going forward will be Primaris (except possibly the Fleshtearers).


I'm actually more concerned about the Craftworlds box. Between this and the Getting Started box, there seems to be significant lack of eldar, beyond a token seer.

I'm curious what the prices will be.

The 6-Kastelan pack is a bit tempting since they weren't in the Xmas AdMech bundle.

The 29th actually is next week. It looks lie we won't have anything going on pre-order this week, the 22nd.

Ok, you’re right if you’re one of those pedants who insists that Sunday is the first day of the week.

Well, the box sets will be nice if they offer similar discounts to the Battleforce boxes, but they just had to fething turn it into a card game with miniatures.

That could be good for the Eldar as they may be getting a whole new redesign or slew of products.

Not really bothered about the game as I barely have room for regular 40k. Like Urban conquest I suspect this is more for clubs or groups. But some of those bundles could tempt me if the price is right.

I am looking forward to seeing what the new tanks can do though

Bundle Contents and cost in US $ for individual units.
No idea what the bundle prices will be, or if they'll be the same. There is a $45.50 variation betwen orks (lowest total price point of contents) and Tau (highest total)

Orks - mek with SA gun, 6 kans, 2 dreads, an ork mek
27+ 92.50+99+21= $239.50

Knights- Castellan + 2 Helverins
170+75= $245

Guard- 3 Russes, 1 Chimera, 1 command squad, 1 HW squad
148.50+ 37.50+ 25+37.50= $248.50

Tau- 6 battlesuits, Riptide, Commander + the accompanying 13 drones, which… isn’t the right number of drones. Either the ones from the Riptide weren’t counted or aren’t included.
150+85+50= $285 (highest value)

AdMech- Dominus (again) + 3 robot boxes (2+ datasmith each)
36+207= $243

CSM- old terminator lord, 6 ancient bikers, 30 shiny new marines
24.75+80+180= $284.75

Primaris Marines- Dread, Captain, 3 intercessor squads
65+35+180=$280

Tyranids- Tyrant, Trygon, 2 Carnifexes, 1 Tyrannofex (with Tervigon parts I assume)
57.75*2+90+53.75= $259.25

Necrons- 6 wraiths, 6 tomb blades, ‘superman’ cryptek and… ghost ark? [Doomsday ark parts assumed]
94+82.50+35+49.50=$261

Craftworld- 15 wraithguard, 2 dreads, Spirit Seer from Wake the Dead box, still not available individually
150+92.50+[25]= $267.50


Some of those box contents are downright weird. Some have a strong theme (Craftworld, Orks), some are a weird mix of brand new units and ancient kits (CSM), others are just... random (Necrons) or generic battleline core (Marines)
In some ways chaos marines are the worst option. If you don't need/want the old kits, it'd be cheaper to buy the new marines by themselves, unless they're seriously knocking $105 off the price of the bundle.

I see the craftworld box selling out first, and the CSM/Primaris not selling out at all (too much overlap with what people already have. Good for people starting an army though)

I don't think I need that many intercessors... I might buy the Knight box if it saves me enough money.

Although I am primarily interest on those lovely new (hover) tanks.

Drukhari didn't get any bundles either.
Nor did any of the non-Codex Chapters.
Oh man and I guess Custodes are gone too, they didn't get one!
Death Guard and Thousand Sons? No bundles, gone!


There's a Start Collecting Space Marines set that gives you old marines.

the CSM box might actually be a pretty popular start collecting alternative depending on cost. I'm going to guess a 190 dollar price for these boxes.

It's also a frigging ton of Kastelans in one box.

The only dud is that you get a Dominus. I can't think of anyone who has ever said "Man, I need another Dominus..." at this point.

Yeah putting some of the newer character models like the Manipulus in the sets would sweeten the deal. Its seems especially odd as the Eldar set looks like it has the Seer from Wake the Dead.

The Necron box looks weird from the outside but it's actually a box full of units Necron players might want, instead of sprues and sprues of unloved Warriors.

If people are looking at these as 40k starters, then they vary enormously in usefulness. The one that tempts me is the knights box.

Warriors wouldn't be that bad except start collecting does that. Apart from triple damned cryptek nothing duplicates with that so in that sense good set. If it had command barge rather than cryptek that is just discount diluter it would be perfect

Since the Battalion boxes are limited in numbers I hope they don't include highly desirable special rules with them.

I am pretty excited for this overall.

That Tyranid one makes me feel bad only because I've actually got more than that content in unbuilt sprues at home and yet - I still want it.


Someone please send me some help for my addiction!





Wait maybe if I've got 2 weeks I could try and push on and finish the ones I've got! If I did that I could buy more couldn't I!

I'm pretty sure those boxes will mostly sell out during that week - a big short term mid-year blitz sale of models by GW riding off the high of the Apoc system.

Yes, but while all the datasheets are free I'm a little concerned it will be like Kill Team where the individual boxes contain special rules. Since these Battalion boxes are a limited release I doubt they will do that (or at least I hope they won't).
