The initial plan was that Legions Imperialis would be released in August. However the most recent post on the Warhammer Community site, as mentioned on this blog, was that the release will be delayed until later in the year.
Why was there a delay? Well as you might have guessed the internet is rife with rumours.
One of the strongest of the Internet rumours is that the rulebook needed to be reprinted due to an inappropriate quote. Though we don’t really know the details it probably was a paraphrased quote from World War Two.
Other rumours talk about warehouse and computing problems. There is also speculation that there are shipping delays.
Of course we will probably never know the truth.
Still looking forward to getting my copy of Legions Imperialis.
