And for completeness we have GW’s own fancy video on Sanctus Reach Vol.1: The Red Waaagh:
So continuing from the previous news, Sanctus Reach looks to be a series of narrative books/sets, serving as a vehicle for various product tie-ins.
We have seen GW release back to back hardcovers before, such as the Ork codex and Ghaz book. Sanctus Reach looks to be a multivolume set released in successive weeks with product tie-ins.
Regarding the “7th Boxed Set”, the jury is still out. While retailers are pulling back on copies of Dark Vengeance, there is still no physical evidence of a “formal” replacement. Instead we have a Volume 2 of Sanctus Reach apparently involving Space Wolves and Orks, including Grukk Face-Rippa.
There could be something as fancy as a Dark Vengeance replacement waiting in the wings, or perhaps simply one of those many theme bundle deals like the ones we saw accompanying Sanctus Reach Vol.1 this week.
