Games Workshop confirmed off the Roadmap for 40k for Arks of Omen. But is that every one we’re getting?
In case you missed it GW confirmed off the Roadmap for Arks of Omen this previous weekend with the massive Warhammer Preview Online. We took a take a look at the Arks of Omen launch schedule and we’re very inquisitive about what the plan is right here for these books.
In complete we’ve obtained a complete of 4 books coming — 3 which were introduced and a mysterious 4th e book. And we are able to see the timeline as nicely with the winter/spring launch home windows.
In phrases of 40k releases, we all know that the World Eaters are coming soon-ish to comply with up the discharge of the Astra Militarum. We’re nonetheless ready on full releases for that military in addition to we’re simply now seeing the Army Set Pre-orders finalize. That launch window may very well be a couple of weeks based mostly on the variety of kits. I suppose the query is when these are popping out, too. Will we see an Astra Militarum wave in December together with the World Eaters or will GW journey the Battleforces till January…
Anyhow, trying on the Roadmap above, we’re most curious if these Arks of Omen releases are each factor GW has deliberate for 40k till Summer of ’23. That’s fairly the dry spell of releases and that certainly can’t be the one 40k merchandise that they’ve deliberate. It’s their flagship sport and going mainly 6 months with simply 3 books popping out is somewhat regarding.
Then once more, possibly that’s the plan. Maybe this window is a pause on manufacturing for 40k for a bit to allow them to take step again and actually plan out what’s subsequent for the sport. This Arks of Omen collection feels loads just like the Psychic Awakening occasion that was basically the capstone for eighth — solely with half as many books.
Also, trying on the Table of Contents there’s a number of lore there and the elements that aren’t lore are for the Boarding Actions. Those guidelines aren’t particular to Matched Play both. Personally, I’m excited to try them and check out some Boarding Actions myself — however I do know that’s not what everyone seems to be into.
With extra of those Arks of Omen books on the best way, I’m very curious to see what codecs they’ll have. Again, the Abaddon e book is lore and Boarding Actions — so what’s going to Angron and Vashtorr present? More lore — undoubtedly. More Boarding Action guidelines? Probably some extra situations. But is that every one? Again, if these are the releases for the primary few months of 2023, are they going to have fashions or guidelines for fashions or actually another 40k releases to associate with them?

We’re getting the ultimate codexes for 40k. And then we’re getting a giant narrative occasion. If this isn’t the top of an version I’d be somewhat stunned at this level. I’m very curious to see what GW does throughout and after the Arks of Omen collection for 40k. I don’t suppose GW goes to be resting on their laurels with the “end of 9th” both. If something, this may be a pause/refresher earlier than one thing even greater comes out.
What do you consider the Arks of Omen roadmap? Is that every one we’re getting for 40k or do you suppose we’re going to get much more releases?
