    Games Workshop Epic 40,000 Release Timeline (Mk. II)

    Need more space (20,000 character limit in posts), so time to close the old thread and open this new one.

    This is a list I’ve compiled (with help) of Games Workshop’s releases over the years, split by game system. I stress this is a work in progress; it is far from complete or comprehensive. It’s based on a mix of info from these forums, fellow forumites help and my White Dwarf collection.

    I'm sure there will be errors: things mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits, models in the wrong month, and some just plain missing. If you can help out with further info to improve this it would be greatly appreciated

    Some guidelines for inclusion:


    • Magazines, books, terrain, tools, paints and so on aren’t included: this is focused on models.

    • Battle Forces and other boxed sets of armies generally don’t get included. Where something was released in a game edition boxed set and later released separately, the later release is used since the game box itself is mentioned separately.
    Despite these issues I hope it might be an interesting or helpful resource for others. Many thanks to Tarax, Tae, Scryer in the Darkness, mrtn, gunmonkey, Ghudra, someone2040, Daniel36, coyote1066, Coach, MarcoSkoll, AsleepByDay and ADF for all their help.


    Note on *: I would like one day to give this a site of it's own, and as part of that I was to add images of models for easy identification. At the moment that project is firmly on hold for various reasons, but I'm still collecting images here and there. The asterisks mean I have an image for that thing.

    Hi, great and useful posts. Really good stuff. a few errors:


    1991: Warp Hunter is by JG
    1991: Wave Serpent is by JG
    1991 Deathstalker is by JG


    Worked out by process of elimination using DW, catalogues and also the 1999 army book. Please delete this post after it has been assimilated.

    Really cool thread. Thank you. I always thought Jes Goodwyn designed the latest Eldar Revenant Titans.
