The follow up issue to the new White Dwarf monthly format lived up to expectations. It featured the new release of the Genestealer Cult for Warhammer 40k and contained a bonus comic book set in the grimdark.
As far as Age of Sigmar content goes White Dwarf featured A Tale of Four Warlords. This appears to be an ongoing feature where four Games Workshop employees started with a Start Collecting AoS faction. In October’s issue we were introduced to their paint scheme and new additions to their armies. Here’s a quick rundown:
- Matt Hutson – Sylvaneth
- Andrew King – Nurgle (started with Daemons of Nurgle)
- James Karch – Death (started with Malignants)
- Phil Cowey – Ironjawz
It was great to read about their thought process for collecting their armies. There were some really good paint jobs too. I am sure as their armies grow there will be a battle report or two. What would be really interesting is if they feature their armies in an AoS campaign.
Finally, to me, the best article in this months White Dwarf was an interview with Jes Goodwin. Jes has been part of the Citadel design team for the last 30 years. He is responsible for much of the visual themes found in Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k. It was great to read about the evolution of some of my favorite armies.
I highly recommend picking this months White Dwarf. There is a lot of content and great pictures for both AoS and 40k fans alike. And like I have stated before, I doesn’t take five minutes to flip through like the weekly formats… there is a lot to go back to and read.
