Warhammer 40K 9th Edition: Indomitus Box Set & preorders

9th Edition’s Indomitus pre-order and release date have been confirmed along with the first official word on the new Chapter Approved. Check this out.

The new edition box set will be available in stores on July 25, and preorders go live on July 11. Core box will be $199.99. Core books will be $65 separately, and the softcovers will be $40 each. There’s also going to be a couple pieces of terrain at $40 and $60 respectively, though pictures of those are not quite available yet.

Now that the box is spoiled, and the prices are out there, the early reservation period has ended!

We know our Painter Promotion was very exciting, and a lot of folks took advantage of a hold on Indomitus to earn bonus paint! Awesome! Unfortunately, early holds had to stop due to overwhelming demand (that is – the number we are currently guaranteed to have are spoken for). We had a huge number of copies on order, and while we weren’t quite sure how this would go, we have enough interest to – likely – sell out within 24 hours of opening our preorders on July 11.  While this promotion has been a huge success in helping us gauge demand, we do not want to be in a position of promising more boxes than we are sure we will have available, so we have made the call to end it early. We sincerely appreciate your interest, and apologize that we are not able to make this promotion available to more people!

The preorder window opens on July 11. If you placed a hold before all the details were known – THANK YOU – you pay finalize and pay for your order starting on July 11. Any remaining stock that becomes available will be released to the general public via our website at shop.justgamesrochester.com.

Anyone who put in a “want” number BEFORE July 11 and had it confirmed has the box AND the paint bonus. Those “wants” will convert to unpaid preorders this morning at 10 am, after which you can call or come in and pay them off any time before or on July 25 (release day).
Q: What if I don’t pay it off before or on July 25, and don’t make any other arrangements?
A: If we don’t hear from you to make other arrangements, and you haven’t prepaid, your preorder will be canceled and released to general stock on July 26.
