It's one of the worst kept secrets in history - the Stormclaw Boxed set for the Sanctus Reach campaign for Warhammer 40K. It's been on the boil for a while, but really hit the rumour mill earlier this week with leaked shots from this very issue of White Dwarf.
But what else does this White Dwarf hold apart from a pretty boxed set with some screaming fanged guys and some cool looking greenskins? Well...
There's also the rules for Gerantius, the Forgotten Knight, one of the most striking Imperial Knights to be released with the recent kit from earlier this year. Jervis Johnson also looks at how playing cards can be used as battlefield strategems - but really this issue os all about Stormclaw!

Interesting thing about this set, you also get a mini version of The Rules! These mini versions of The Rules keep popping up in a number of different sets recently, which is actually a pretty smart idea.
Having a look at this set, you'd have to say it's pretty good value for money!
I had this tallied at $279 without the two characters - so for $190 AUS it's pretty good! I'm sure there's a catch somewhere... (Combat Company in Australia have it for $170 BTW)
I know that Greggles commented on the sneak peek shots that Grukk Face-Rippa isn't really anything new (and he's right) but I like this guy. Not sure about Krom's head - but nothing a helmet can't fix!
To Games Workshop's credit - the way they have set out and sold this set is pretty impressive; there's a fair bit of info to whet the appetite, but not too much to out you off.
What do you think of Mortarion's paint job>? I'm not sold!
You know, I wasn't too sold on this bit.. Seemed rushed.. The pictures would have done me and some more room dedicated to the Designers Notes.
Quick little insight and maybe a glimpse into where we are going for the rumoured Space Wolf relaunch later this year!?
If you like Space Wolves or Orks, then get this issue for sure!
If you just buy White Dwarf now and then to see what';s going on or for the hobby/ painting angle - I wouldn't say this is a necessary issue to own, personally!
