Warhammer 40,000’s 8th edition releases on Saturday, June 17th, and it’s a major revision to the game, with changes so sweeping they’re invalidating all the 6th and 7th edition codices. We are now taking prepaid preorders for the following 8th edition launch products, all at a 10% discount (included in the prices below):

The indices are the at-launch replacement for the codices, with each army getting its own revised stand-alone codex down the line. Each index includes full rules for the armies listed with it. Dark Imperium is the new two-player starter set, featuring Ultramarines vs. Deathguard. Other than the new core rulebook, everything else is an optional game aid.
This edition promises to be the most balanced version of 40K yet, and features significant streamlining. Games are purported to be almost half as long as previous editions. Come try it for yourself at our release party!
