Get Ready for Chapter Approved: Apocalypse Returns

Are you ready for Chapter Approved?

Chapter Approved is your essential gaming supplement, packed with new missions, rules and even hobby tips designed to make your games of Warhammer 40,000 as awesome as they possibly can be. You’ll find the creative, experimental spirit of classic Warhammer publications like Rogue Trader and the previous incarnation of Chapter Approved, combined with the polish and streamline you’ve come to expect from the latest edition of Warhammer 40,000. We’ll be previewing just some of what you can expect to find in your copy throughout this week, today covering the return of Apocalypse….


In Chapter Approved, Apocalypse is back, featuring rules and scenarios for playing your biggest battles ever. Apocalypse games are focused on epic moments, grand narratives, and fun, while accommodating armies that can run into the tens of thousands of points. The toolset in the book is a flexible and robust base from which you could build countless scenarios. We like the rules for multi-board games; perhaps one table could have a clutch of Deathstrikes waiting to fire as a team of desperate Pathfinders try to stop them before they annihilate the Ta’unar Supremacy Armour on another.

The Apocalypse missions are similarly awesome. Our favourite is Exterminatus, set during the death of a world while viral bombardments, cyclonic torpedoes and orbital lasers tear apart the very planet your warriors stand on.

It’s not just about the games themselves – Chapter Approved is full of advice on organising your Apocalypse games. As anyone who’s tried to run a club can attest to, organising a pack of Warhammer fans has a lot in common with trying to herd cats. Thankfully, you’ll find tips for planning your games, picking a place and even using a gamemaster or umpire to make sure everything runs smoothly.

With Apocalypse in Chapter Approved, you’re free to plan and play games you’ll remember for years afterwards; the epic, gaming-group spanning combats that every hobbyist remembers fondly. If you’ve ever wanted to play war on the scale it’s depicted in your favourite Black Library novels and art, or just fancy finding out how many Ork Boyz you need to take down a Warlord Titan, Apocalypse is for you – and it’s only a small slice of what you’ll find in Chapter Approved. Come back tomorrow, when we’ll be looking at some of the 24 new missions included in the supplement.
