A number of retailers have issued word today that they have been informed by Games Workshop that the standard Dark Vengeance starter set is delayed until further notice.

Here’s the official message from GW ->

We’ve pushed the release for dark vengeance back. As soon as Dark Vengeance is available we will send them and notify you. You can begin shipping Dark Vengeance to your customers as soon as you receive them. They can begin to sell Dark Vengeance as soon as they receive it from you.

There has been no word as yet as to what has caused this delay, but some retailers have mentioned a desire by Games Workshop to sell every single Limited Edition before beginning to sell the standard box. Interesting sales decision, if a little pointless.

There is no word on when the standard edition will be released.

The Games Workshop website lists the Limited Edition as unavailable, and the Standard is available to preorder, but no release date is listed.

Dark Vengeance available to advance order!

At midnight on the 25th of August, as promised, Games Workshop put up the 6th Edition box set “Dark Vengeance” to advance order. It can be found here.

The box contains; 1 Dark Angels Company Master, 1 Dark Angels Librarian, 5 Deathwing Terminators (incl. Sergeant and assault cannon), 3 Ravenwing Bikers, 10 Dark Angels Tactical Marines (incl. Sergeant w. plasma pistol, plasma gun & plasma cannon), 1 Chaos Lord in power armour, 6 Chosen, 10 Chaos Cultists armed with autoguns, 10 Chaos Cultists armed with pistols and CCWs, 1 Hellbrute, 1 mini-rulebook, 1 campaign guide, 2 measuring sticks, templates, and several dice.

The first run of Dark Vengeance includes a limited-edition Dark Angels Interrogator-Chaplain. It’s quite a good miniature and you won’t be paying any extra, so why not order now?

Here are the rest of the miniatures.

Back of the Hellbrute. A little disappointing, was expecting something more “organic”.

The dude with the Lightning Claws is one of the Chosen. The Dark Angels captain looks a little meh, but I like the Librarian. The Cultist looks pretty awesome too.

Looks like GW will announce the set on the 25th of August, if their crappy teaser trailer is anything to go by.
