6th Edition 40k Launch Details and Pricing

Hi all,

Gamers Sanctuary just received their product listings for the 6th edition 40k launch. There's some juicy info here, including confirmation of a very different set of rules for Psykers, mirroring rules for wizards in WFB.

Leaked cover for 6th ed. Now everyone can hate on DA and give poor Ultras a rest.

"Today we received the listing of new Releases coming this July from Games Workshop. Included with this release list was the new Warhammer 40,000 6th Edition Rulebook. The new rulebook has a tentative release date of June 30th and this 440-page hardback rulebook will retail for $74.25... however, you can pre-order this fine tome of 40k goodness from Gamers Sanctuary for a cool $49.95 (you're reading that right, less than fifty bucks)!

Our order cut-off is Wedneday, June 27 so we will be taking pre-orders now until the close of business June 27. Pre-orders do not need to be paid for in advance (in fact we prefer it if you pay when you pick it up) so just give us a call, stop in or send us an e-mail and we'll get you added to the list.

All pre-orders must be picked-up no later than Sunday, July 8th in order to remain eligible for pre-order pricing.

Other 40k goodies available for pre-order:
Munitorium Templates - Retail $19.75 / Pre-order $13.95
Servo-Skull Tape Measure - Retail $16.50 / Pre-order $11.95
Psychic Powers Deck (32-cards) - Retail $13.25 / Pre-order $9.95
Munitorium Dice - Retail $16.50 / Pre-order $11.95
Munitorium Battlefield Objectives - Retail $16.50 / Pre-order $11.95
Munitorum Vehicle Markers - Retail $16.50 / Pre-order $11.95"

No info on what the other items such as counters or objectives will look like yet but the cover of the rulebook has been leaked all over the internet in the past couple of days.

Most importantly for local players, check out those sweet preorder prices! I already emailed to reserve a rulebook and card deck. Anyone who is close enough to take advantage of these prices should definitely do so!

Update: Chad has confirmed mail orders are available to our out of state readers! You would have to pay S&H of course, but your price will still be much cheaper than retail, and you're supporting an awesome local store!

  1. Done, I ordered the book and the cards.

  2. Same here. I'm curious about the counters and objectives, and the tape measure sounds hilarious. But I'm going to wait and see what they look like.

  3. One of everything except the dice for me!

  4. Book and cards for me. I'm sure I'll succumb to all other items before the end of the month.

  5. I pre-ordered as well. I heard they are releasing other variations of the rulebook as well (rumor has it that they will only be available online though).

  6. There are definitely other versions out there, with WD scans showing grainy pictures of them. I suspect that since they were not on the list GS got, they will indeed be Direct-Only, probably with the option to order through GW stores.
