 Very nice. Could you tell us what ranks the adventure trilogy is for? I'm hoping they are released much closer together than the Haarlock Legacy. 

I imagine the sourcebooks will be good for all levels, including ascended.

Nice, thanks for the update Mack. The upcoming releases look pretty interesting.

One minor quibble though, has the release date for the first part of the Apostasy Gambit (Black Sepulchre) been typo'd? It seems a little strange that the first part is to be made available after the other two.

Rock! It seems a lot of the books that we've been wanting are actually coming. The Blood of Martyrs and Book of Judgment have me rather excited, especially if they delve a bit deeper into the Imperial Creed and Imperial Law. Nice!

I would say that this has been the best release information for any game line I have ever seen. At least in so much as it pleases what I was hoping for from said line.

 

 

I was hoping for exactly this. If I had to compile my list of things it was almost 100% checked off....

 

 

More info on the Ecclisiarchy? Check!

With Info on Sororitas as well? Check!

More info on the Arbites and the Legal systems of the Imperium? Check!

With info to run something Akin to Necromunda, gangers and the LAW! Check! (This may not be so doable as I hope, but I feel this book would hold the key)

More Info on the Daemon Hunters, the Grand Ordo Malleus? Check!

With Info on the Grey Knights? CHECK CHECK AND CHECK!!!!

More info on the Imperial Guardsman that line the front lines of countless wars across the Imperium? Check!

With expanded vehicle rules and info for running an IG campaign? Check!

More info on the Warp, the beings and things found therein and the things man should not know? Not so check, but still nearly every item.

Top it off with another trilogy adventure and I am literally close to dancing with joy!

I am so happy that attention is brought to clerics, scum and guardsmen. It seemed to me that they got a little to less of attention.

Anyway, I hope for good rules to make frevent believe a game factor. Vehicle rules will be nice, too. If the "scum & arb" book has something more to say about live in a hive... well, I am will be so ever-gradefull.

Cannot wait for fall! Oh... "Into the Storm" is underway...so perhaps I can *s*

Hey that's great news!

I'm buying all of them, heh heh :)

However, any plans for detailing Tech Priests? It seems to be the least covered subject so far.

Thanks Mack, I have my faith in you.

Thats a classic typo (but worrying for production quality) on the Apostasy Trilogy with the first part of it being published last!

Not necessarily - there is still winter at the start of 2011...

So... these vehicle rules. Are they going to be the same as the Into the Storm rules?

I hope so. I'd hate to have two different systems for vehicles in two RPG's that largely share the same rule set.

And this all sounds great, and it's nice to see that the first new DH release isn't "Dark Heresy 2nd Ed - now with cards and counters and unnecessary proprietary dice!". I just wish the books were coming out in reverse order. That Guard book sounds awesome.

BYE

It does gran_risa.gif If anything can make you want to play a Puritanical character rather than your standard Radical (which it is in my case, I'm Xanthite through and through), this book will happy.gif

 Reading through the whole story I see a lot of hints at what the books might contain. Totally awesome. 

I can't wait to see the new trilogy. Hopefully it's a bit more "epic" than the last one. 

Oh and did I say Grey Knights? Cus...

 

GREY KNIGHTS.

Its nice to here about all these products and the beginning of what seems like cross pollination between the lines.

Vehicles rules for DH, hopefully from Rogue TRader and maybe (even if its not a complete list) a little starter on how to use Deathwatch rules to run a Grey Knight game.

Very exciting series of books.

My only real complaint about it (other than the lack of a psyker book) is that everything is coming out next year apart from the Martyr book.

I want my nice new shiny things now.

Blood of Martyrs and the Book of Judgement are quite possibly the two most exciting Dark Heresy related announcements yet. Both the Ecclesiarchy and the Arbites are beginning to be detailed. And Fall 2010 for the first! This is most excellent.

Very very exciting stuff. The cover of Blood of Martyrs is a very nice looking piece of new art, too, very cool! happy.gif

It seems then that the plan is to do a series of "Clanbooks" a bit like the old White Wolf Vampire clanbooks, or even the old D&D Class books. What's interesting to me is the way that FFG seem to mix sourcebook info into every single publication. They don't do "pure" sourcebooks, they do player's guides/adventures that are packed full of background information. I imagine that this wil continue into these "classbooks," so we'll probably see quite a bit of Calixian-specific data on each. That's the stuff I love!

And one would imagine that as these forthcoming books cover Clerics/Scum/Arbites/Guardsmen, we'll probably see similar publications into 2012 for Psykers/Techpriests/Assassins/Sages too...All incredibly exciting.

It will be interesting to see how many pages each book totals, and what the RRP will be for these. I have a niggling feel that they'll hurt the wallet too much to warrant getting all of them.
