Following up the massive amount of Age Of Sigmar news from AdeptiCon we also had the announcement that Apocalypse, a new game for Warhammer 40,000 is also dropping in the near future from Games Workshop.

Bigger is better right? Well, this new system is looking to introduce insanely large mass battles into the mix for Warhammer 40,000. And yes, as they mentioned in their preview...those are movement trays in the video.

The scale of these battles is so huge that it doesn't actually come down to units but entire formations. Rules have been tweaked to make it more playable at this scale I would imagine but I'm still not entirely sure about this one.

They are looking to try and play out all of those battles from the artwork and the lore that look far too immense in the same time it takes you to play a standard game of Warhammer 40,000. This will be quite the feat and I'm interested to see how they do it.

Event Exclusive Librarian

As a side note, the team also revealed a new Event Exclusive miniature that isn't a Primaris Lieutenant. Check out this Librarian...

He will be available at events next year so watch this space. It's good that they've finally decided that enough Primaris Space Marines have been promoted to positions of power!

Are you tempted by massive battles in Apocalypse?
