Games Workshop Release Schedule 2012

The latest rumoured release schedule for Games Workshop for rest of year is:

June – Flyers

July – Warhammer 40k 6th Edition Release

August – Chaos Legion

September – 6th Edition Box Set

October – Warriors of Chaos

November – The Hobbit

Now this is very interesting. Four 40k months in a row. And it certainly reinforces GW’s hype that 2012 was the “Year of Chaos”.

I’m sure that people will disagree with this schedule. I’ll be interesting how right it is over the next six months.


  1. Id expect some LoTR releases around the date of the Hobbit as well and maybe another push at selling more of that particular game system.

  2. The Hobbit was an all-encompassing term for LOtR - Nov/Dec will be GW Hobbit mania

  3. I also made some predictions a few weeks ago in regards to this years releases
    They can be found here

    Ive stuck with the historical alternating release schedule

  4. Don't worry, I'm sure GW has just hidden the fact that they will be releasing dwarfs this year, you know... for the shock factor.

    Man I hope I am right XD.

    1. Agreed, it would be nice if dwarfs get the new book before the HE, but if the WoC and Brets. rulebooks are released first then that is fine as well since I have access to those armies as well.

  5. Its a good time to be someone who plays chaos in all the game systems. Cant wait for the bandwagon goodness XD
