The return of White Dwarf as a monthly publication has been hotly anticipated when the news broke that the hobby magazine was going to return to it's earlier form, but in a much more expanded way.
The weekly White Dwarf wasn't perfect, but it did have some moments in the sun, the Imperial Knights launch issues stood out as being really excellent, but yes, it didn't always deliver.
As a marketing move, we have already commented on here how losing the weekly publication means less foot traffic through the doors of Games Workshop stores - the amount of left over stock in the Deathwatch releases last Sunday was probably testament to that being correct.
Time will tell, but this new format is very different!
This is more like a console gamer magazine in format and there is a lot going on - it's busy and certainly great value!
As we take you through this issue, please be aware that not every page has been photographed, but you will get a very good idea of what you will be seeing in the first issue on shelves this coming Friday
More After The Jump
Here we get a bit of a look at Gorechosen, Kill Team,. the re-released Void Shield Generator (will it be from the original factory which had some quality issues the first time it was released?), Battlefleet Gothic Armada gets a bit of a write up for the new Space Marine ships that have just become available for that game, as well as Total War: Warhammer, Eternal Crusade, Freeblade and Man O War just to round out a few of the current non-tabletop games out there.
We also get a preview of the new Kharn The Betrayer model and the beginning of the Chaos Space Marine revamp with Traitor's Hate.
There's other little tidbits in here too, and the news that this issue was actually put together in May, so a fair bit of lead time there!
Does anyone else remember reading the letters page in the back of the Marvel Comics of the 80s? I loved GI Joe comics - they had some awesome letters with some great ideas and responses from the creators.
Here's hoping this is something similar.
Really happy to see the awesome James Karch among this group.
This is the followed by a short article on the Biel-Tan Eldar, just tying it all together!
This is a tonne of information!! A real boon to players. Great content...
Definitely worth picking up and having a look at. There's so much to read and the majority of the photography is brilliant!
