After all the rumours and previews, Games Workshop have finally unveiled the release window for the new edition of Warhammer 40,000. The game will official launch this June with a new starter box.
This is an awesome box set. Inside, you get two armies of brand new miniatures, the full hardback Warhammer 40,000 book, dice and range rulers. Even the outside is covered in gorgeous artwork, and the sight of all those goodies as you open the box for the first time is very satisfying… but a bit more on that later…
Alongside this new starter set, wargamers will also have access to the massive 480 page tome that is the core rule book, filled with plenty of lore, rules and inspiration. The best part for many however, is that the rules will also be available completely free as on online download. Allowing current players to get started with the new rule set as soon as it is released. This is a strong move from Games Workshop, and in line with what many other miniature wargames have been doing for the last few years.
To ensure no army is left out, they’ll also be launching a set of Index books at the same time, providing all the new unit statistics for every army currently available. There are plans to release individual codexes at a later date.
Definitely exciting news if you’re a Warhammer 40,000 fan. We’re sure there will be plenty more previews and updates leading up to the release in June.
