Happy weekend to you - if you're working, I'm sorry, if you're not then you may be planning on taking a trip down to your local Games Workshop and picking up the new White Dwarf - but is it worth your hard-earned coin?
Read on, Wayfarer!
This week's White Dwarf sees a return to Age of $igmar and more large lizards! I say 'lizards' and not 'dragons' because dragons these are not!
Sent from the star-god Dracothian to aid Man in their fight against Chaos, these large chaps certainly dominate the tabletop. Large models seem to be the way at the moment with Archaon's forces possessing a number of large models, plus those from The End Times - so the Forces of Order certainly need some fire support.
There are also a few other things this issue, some beautifully painted miniatures by Maxime Pastourel, a look at the Sigmar's big hitters - the Extremis Chambers, and a showcase of the Deathwatch minis...

The model itself is pretty bloody big! It dwarfs Stormcast Eternals and they aren't exactly small. It comes with two head options and seemingly has to have his wings facing down which is a bit weird considering the scale of Archaon's beast whose wings are so dominant.
Now before you get too excited about this mini - he is $240 AUD.
That's a hefty price, especially for a non-character model.
The Realmgate Wars audio drama series continues with The Beasts of Cartha. It's a vamps vs Stormcast Eternals story if that is your want and desire, with Manfred von Carstein continuing his role as protagonist.
Like to game with Horus Heresy era armies? Well Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions has the updated army lists and unit rules to field your forces. Interestingly there is only the UK price on here, but it's sting your wallet, that's for sure. Definitely a great resource if this is the universe you want to play in though!
Little bit of a preview here saying that Issue 115 will be the celebration issue of Space Marines! 30 years! That makes me feel old, I was pretty much there at the start! There will apparently be exclusive new releases in store that weekend as well as a special commemorative Space Marine miniature.
The Maxime Pastourel minis are amazing, but they really are the only thing interesting in this issue...
