Do you like your rats big and brutish? Well this week's White Dwarf gives you not one, but three big bruising rats that might sway more than one Imperial player over to the Skaven-side of The Force.
The Stormfiends are upon us (and BTW isn't that a great name for a Chaos Space Marine force?) and they bring with them some heavy hitting [power to the newly up-armoured and up-gunned Skaven.
So what else is in this issue of White Dwarf? Well think rats and then you have a pretty good idea. That being said, the new Grey Seer and Warlord are both great looking models!
But apart from Skaven, we get a look at the new Horus Heresy novel by Graham McNeill, some more on Thanquol's Uprising, and who can beat the Tyranid Swarmlord?
Oh, and BTW, have a look back at the End Times issues of White Dwarf and count the amount of Lizardmen scenes... more than you will have seen for years!
The Stormfiends, for example, would now be pretty comfortable taking on a Dark Elf Hydra or the Nagash's Archai or even a Dragon Ogre or two.
The level of detail on these guys are quite amazing and the paint value for the money you are paying is very high. To paint it to a good standard you are looking at more than a day or even a week - there is just so much to paint and super-detail!
Oh and who ever took this photo on the right with the Imperial troops should be in the running for one of the best White Dwarf photos this year! It's a cracker!!
The Grey Seer has a real Thanquol look to him and the Warlord is a perfect Skaven warrior - torn banner and all. The only thing that is a bit disappointing is the lack of options on the sprues! No alternate heads or the odd spare rat to do their bidding! That just seems strange and I don't know about you, but is stopping me buying multiples!
There are also two new Horus Heresy novels - one with short stories and the other Graham McNeill's latest Horus Heresy novel, bringing to 29 the total number in the ongoing series. You may have seen Vengeful Spirit around before, but this is the first time in paperback.
This time Mephiston, Abaddon, The All Father, and Lysander all get a chance - so who will finally crush the Tyranid Swarmlord? Want a clue? Think of a banana holding a hammer...
Anything other than Skaven is thin on the ground, so if that's not your thing then maybe save your coin for another day.
