Looks interesting enough at the initial teaser, they don't have 80 easy build kits though so who knows what will actually be the contents beyond the initial 4.

"Issue 1 priced at £1.99, Issue 2 at £4.99 then £7.99 per issue thereafter."

Could be the older push-fit boxes (Cultists, Guardians, etc.) - they're £6 direct.

That still wouldn't make 80 issues, even with the Age of Sigmar and Fantasy pushfits, I don't think theres 80 collectively.

At £7.99 I can see them giving out bigger sprues or heroes even. WD #1 had the Slaughterpriest, which has a RRP 18£. Primaris heroes are 20. Blight Hauler is 15. Issues could only include paints or tools.

Thats my thinking too, Primaris combat squads are 20 pounds, lots of kits are around that price too and once the newsagents stop holding them on the shelves as they often do I would wager the deals will be better as they no longer have anyone picking up the one mag they want for discount on the kit.

This could be great, it looks very much in the vein of the old LotR Battle Games In Middle Earth collection which I'm sure is the reason many of us are in the hobby to this day. Even if the value isn't as insane as it was with that (£3.99 a fortnight for the magazine and a full sprue of 10-12 minis or a metal mini and paint! Those were the days) then this certainly has massive potential to offer an affordable, accessible chunk of hobby material to people on limited budgets or unwilling/unable to collect a full army.

Interested to see what kind of contents get served up, but I could actually see myself going for this; having a few minis every couple of weeks at a cut price to just muck about with would be good fun and not too straining on the wallet.

Shame it’s only in the Uk. I would happily buy the first issue. £1.99 for the easy build primaris marines, 3 paints and a brush is probably the best deal gw has ever done. Even the later issues are cheaper than just buying the minis. Very curious what they are going to put in the other 76 issues especially as it is weekly. Are there a whole lot more easy build kits on the way?

It could be a regional thing. For example in Spain they are very popular, just like the GW tape measures. I know in many other places people just buy one much cheaper from a shop, but in Spain, to find a tape measure that it is on inches is very difficult, every single one is on centimeters. So like 90% of the people uses a GW official one.

Cheap and handy. Other similar grips cost about the same, might as well buy a GW one.

The paint handle is really nice, actually.

As for how they are going to get 80 issues, I don't see anywhere that says there will never be duplicate miniatures. I'm sure at some point they will have you build bigger units.

I'm not sure it will be worth it for someone who has a 40k collection / many of GW's E2B sprues but as a way to introduce the hobby to more people this is a good concept. I like it but wouldn't probably subscribe. Hopefully - like the Star Wars and Marvel comic collections - this will be available in other countries too next year or so.

I guess the paint pots are the smaller ones, from the Marine/Death Guard paint sets released last fall.

This may be Hachette doing a trial run again.

They ran it with the 40k novel run, and the Transformers comic run. I know because I signed up to both.

Rather than a ‘will this actually sell’, it’s more ‘what sort of volumes should we print’.

When 2000ad and Dredd went live, it was U.K., Europe and Australia.

For NooBs I think it’s got real legs. £7.99 a week is pocket money. And as a demonstrably creative hobby, not bank breaking as a monthly treat from parents.

I also suspect this isn’t the one they’re hiring staff for, given it popped up nary a fortnight after the Staff Quest began.

Could be (and only could!) we’re looking at this, and something for more established gamers later down the line. I reckon a large centre piece in resin (possibly even pre-painted, ala the DeAgostini Falcon) is a possibility.

For Transformers and the 40k Novel collection, they ran four issues across 8 weeks as part of the trial.

This is a great idea to get people paint models, although I'm not sure I need a constant increase to my shame pile.

I expect I'll pick this up on an ad-hoc basis after the first couple issues when there is something really cool (and Orky!) attached.

I think it is a great idea and good way to get kids and newcomers involved. I don't think £8 a week is too much of a stretch and it is a steady drip feed of new models and paints without overwhelming the consumer. Definitely within pocket money range too.

I am surprised GW don't have some sort of subscription based model already - come to think of it, it could be a great way to build a new army, a little bit at a time in affordable tranches.

Hmmm....thirty two quid a month. You get eleven quids worth of paint (after the first four), so in reality, you're paying twenty one quid for four issues and their respective models.

Looking it over, it would appear to be very much worth buying multiples of the first issue, and maybe two of the second, then actively subscribing from Issue 3 so as to get one of the more expensive issues free.

After that, it really depends on the contents of subsequent issues. I fully expect to see all the other easy to build kits wheeled out, alongside some of the more classic easy build marines/guardians/sluggas. Thing is, I wouldn't bother paying eight quid for five cadians plus a pot of paint. They're too cheap and easy to get second hand. So it really would depend on the ongoing content.

I'll definitely pick up four or five of Issue 1 for the paints though!

This definitely seems to be a trial release.

The online survey is asking questions along the lines of what extra subscriber gifts you'd like to see (USB stick, messenger bag, 'large scale' warhammer figures).

There is also a question as to whether you would consider paying an extra GPB1 per issue for access to extras including scenery. The current 2000AD collection had the option of paying extra per issue compared to the standard sub price to have access to a range of figures (Dredd, Death, Rogue Trooper, Nemesis and so on).


Think of the small print though. The painting handle is with your 7th delivery. I think the issues are being sent in monthly batches. You won't receive it for 7 months!

So long as they don't start putting "exclusive" models in there once they run out of existing E2B Primarines and DG, this looks to be a brilliant idea, and the best use of the concept. Not for "vets" really, but doesn't come at our expense in any way and is great for new players.

Can concur, went into my local and there weren't any copies.

But for £2 I can't pass this up so I'll keep an eye on this thread.
I'm quite glad it's not one of those 'for £8.99 a week and 300 weekly editions, you can build a boat' that ends up costing £2000.

The Black Library book and magazine thing was really cool as well.

The issues for me are:

I doubt anyone will get first copies, as scalpers will buy them up and sell it all seperate. Throw the brush away, sell the paints and figures, and get... what... 6-7 for the figures, 1-2 for the paints, 9-12 pounds per two pounds spent.

After issue 5, what are they going to give us? a dreadnaught in x parts? A Blight Hauler in y parts? Scenery? More dice?

Saying that... scenery would be pretty darn cool. Imagine getting a few bits, and then learning how LOS/cover works, and at the end you not only have two forces, but a decent amount of terrain too.

Is anyone offering a subscription service for US customers? As in, a US customer subscribes and it ships to an address in theUK. Then every four issues, the UK address person then mails to the US. Something like that

So is this on sale in places like smiths then guys. Would grab a couple at 2 quid a pop but now the snow has hit big time around here, that’s put the kibosh on getting in to town for a bit.

I wouldn’t expect to see it in the shops for a couple of weeks, Hatchett partwork websites tend to go up at least a few weeks before hitting shops.

It was also one of the options put forward in the survey that I mentioned earlier.

Once the part works is up and running, the web site will normally have back issues available for those who want to be more selective over what they purchase.

Looks like a great tool to get kids into the hobby and build up their collections.

Some kits they can split over two issues like the EZ build redemptor, and I would put money on the Chaos cultist sprue turning up in the first few months.

I'll probably subscribe for cheap minis plus paints. Some of the LOTR issues were really good. It would also be great if scenery were included. The new ruin sprue is pretty easy to put together for a start.

I hope it doesn’t come out for a few weeks, I go on holiday tomorrow and I’m not back till the 15th.
I want to pick up issue 1, a couple of times if they aren’t shifting.
CoOp and Smiths are usually the ones.

To the post about shipping from UK not being worth it, it may wipe out most if not all of the discount for the models and paint, but you are getting the magazine which is quite an interesting thing for some.
(Also, that’d ship to the US for what maybe £10? Might even get 8 issues sent for that cost spending what’s in it.
You can send 1kg for £13 which is quite a few issues I’d have thought - there is a cheaper sending but I never use it so can’t remember it. About £8?)

Hama (issue #53 exclusive), the other Hama (Hornburg) pose was released individually as well as in Defenders of Rohan set.
Gandalf the White on Foot (not standing on a rock) with staff raised was a issue #39 exclusive.
Those were the only two

I subscribed for the first 4. Seems like something fun to go along with and if it loses steam after the first 4 I'm out £23 or so tops.


But not even out £23, as you’ll have got the RRP £20 Of models from the box set, a £3-4 brush, 6 paints at £15ish, plus the 4 magazines that may be alright. Decent saving..

Also month 2 is only £24 as you get the free issue, so it’s all to play for with what’s in those (of course we will find out when they turn up in a bundle I suppose so may or may not be worth it.

I had a thought if they aren’t doing part models per issue and it’s a whole model at least every time (their wording suggests), Felthius - one week, then the Cohort the next, as you’d get full sprue each time, is there anything primaris that is similar? A whole dread in one go would be great.

I also think after the first 4, there isn’t no need to go easy to build stuff either, as you’ve had 4 issues to become a modeller, so it could just be anything, that old one Marine on sprue bit, the set of three models that come in each of the paint sets, there’s like an ork one and so on right?
Could even be a sprue of something they are re doing later in the year, just to clear them, old finecast models even.
Point being I’m not so sure it’ll stick to those two ‘starter armies’

I’m definitely keeping an eye, will be interesting to see where it goes, and if they make it to 80..

Back in the LotR days they did the odd two-issue set, typically cavalry where you'd get the mounts one issue and the riders the next (though as they delivered 2 issues at a time you got it all in one go if you were subscribed). So doing a Dreadnought over a couple of weeks is certainly possible.

I'd not be surprised to see a few of the more recent character sprues make their way into future issues, they're hardly the most complex models in most cases.

I worked at the distributing warehouse for the LotRs one. For reasons I can’t explain I never hoarded all the returns, just skipped them with all the other month old mags.

If (and let's not kid ourselves 'when' ) they release this in the US, I'm all over it! I've looked at a lot of miniature subscription services, and they all seem very unappealing (would be happy to be proven wrong ). But I would enjoy receiving a somewhat rando mini from GW, especially every WEEK. Seems like they'd really have to step up their mailing opperation for something like this, but, if it works, you'll seed people's collections with a lot of minis they might not have normally purchased. Hopefully it does well in the UK, so we can get it set up in other countries as well.

Yeah quite a lot of those character minis were single sprue set ups, so really easy to do them.

The Multi week Dread thing goes against the website as it does say “Each Issue” has a miniature, LotR never promised that.
I know by 5 issues in no one will be doing it (as people will be subscribed by then) - but technically it is possible to buy the issues one a time a time. So sticking by their words they can’t do it, but I could easily see that being the way it’s done.

I think the first few months will focus on Imperium and Chaos. Primaris and Deathguard have 4 EZ build kits each.

However there is no reason not to put sprues from the starter sets, the single character sprues or the 5 man primaris sprues in there. Deathguard have a lot of elite characters.

However Lord Felthius is almost certainly going to be accompanied by a primaris captain of some sort for balance purposes.

What I hope they do is introduce a low point game standard format and missions. Kill team is sorely missed. They could then do a Kill Team box based around EZ build kits or similar.

What I might do is a collect along vlog were I build a new force based on the magazine.

You could also find Marine sprues being repeated, especially if the paint of the week is for Blood Angels.

The other thing BGiME did was to include cut out cardboard models every now and then dependant on the scenario, for example Watcher tentacles. There was also bonus sticker sheets as well. The best I remember was the large Royal standards for hanging around a scratch built Theoden's Hall.

There was also two special issues for Two Towers and ROTK that, for a higher cover price contained the metal mounted Gandalf/ Shadow fax and King Aragon models. Easy build Dreadnought as a special outside the numbered releases for a higher price?

I guess we'll just have to wait for whatever is planned past the first four issues.

Don't forget that the survey also hints there could be be more available if a subscriber is willing to pay extra per issue.

The extra money per issue could definitely be where we get a Dread and such.
And repeat models particularly on the SM side will happen I’m sure (much more noticeable on the DG side as their marines look more unique).

Having read the questions but not completed it I would say the survey is looking for feedback on what the later issues feature.

I'll be saying small scale skirmish rules like kill team, scenarios, exclusive models and big models.

My experience with Hachette hasn’t been too bad apart from the fact that they are sending out hardback graphic novels in rubbish cardboard boxes that sees the books end up damage every other month. That said, they always replace ant damaged issues without any question what so ever. When I have cancelled previously subscriptions it has always been very easy to do and just needed to send an email.

I don’t think the packaging will be an issue this time around.


Warhammer 40,000 Conquest @ 2018/03/03 15:09:46


Post by: MrDwhitey


I remember the "packaging". Cardboard box 3 times the size of the book, book is loose with no padding.

As for cancelling, it took several weeks with phonecalls and emails daily. Every time it was "Ok we've cancelled it, it'll show up in your account tomorrow", but it never did. And they went right on sending more stuff during that period.

They only actually cancelled it after I had the bank put in an order to refuse all payments to them. Shockingly they were actually able to cancel my sub almost immediately after I told them about that.

I did get the money back, via cheque, for the stuff they sent me while they knew I was trying to cancel.

Post by: Aeneades


They seem to alternate packaging between massive parcel way too big for the book with no extra padding so that it gets damaged or exactly the right sized box but waffer thin cardboard so offers no protection at all. Not ideal with hardcover books. Annoyingly they did trial some really good cardboard boxes that were a perfect fit but had extra cardboard around the corners to protect the spots most ofrten damaged, unfortunately it was only used for a few months. Hopefully Conquest will be in a larger box with extra filling.

Shame it was such a pain to cancel, for me it only took an email and had a reply with 12 hours confirming both subscriptions were cancelled.

Counter-anecdote; I cancelled my subscription to the legends collection thing on the hatchette website and it processed immediately, I had no further deliveries and no further money was taken. Maybe it was after MrDwhitey's trouble and they made an effort to sort their act out, or maybe it was before and they've gotten worse since, but either way my experience was fine.

It's dakka and no one has ever had anything go right for them, so don't worry about anecdotes.

I plan on unboxing these on my channel and doing build along and paint along and hopefully play along when I sort my workshop out in the next two months.

It'll be interesting to do a project with a definite beginning, middle and end.

I plan on doing the big boy marines as Lamenters and the Deathguard as classic Deathguard rather than my existing scheme that is much closer to heresy era.

Just under 400 for me so decent number of people seem interested so far considering it isn't even available in shops or advertised yet.

Hachette always increase the number of issues if a product sells well so I wouldn't be surprised to see this go up to 120ish.

Only really had one issue with their postal - and I think that was more due to the doofus Postie leaving it in the rain.

Other than deliveries with things like the bookends, all my Dredd and 2000ad issues came in packaging akin to that used by Amazon. I like to keep two or three knocking about, as they're quite useful for posting books out to others.

Hey, they found something to do with all those citadel paint handles.


Can't say that these are not popular. They're not very expensive, so I've seen people ordering 10 of them so they could batch-paint with them without changing the minis all the time. I bought one and like it, I'm getting more as well.

I think that this may still be on a trial release as those who have picked up copies appear to be in the north east (Yorkshire is key area for these trial releases). This would explain why they have the survey on the website as well asking if you would pay extra each month for terrain, etc.

Those who have signed up on the website should receive the first 4 issues still and hopefully enough interest is generated to call the trial a success and roll out the full release (may be a gap between isssue 4 and 5 those for subscribers). If this is rolled out to a full release then it will start to pop up in every shop at that time.

Is there something about them I'm missing? I've seen them around here. Never tons of them, but they never really look like they have any missing either.


It could be a regional thing. For example in Spain they are very popular, just like the GW tape measures. I know in many other places people just buy one much cheaper from a shop, but in Spain, to find a tape measure that it is on inches is very difficult, every single one is on centimeters. So like 90% of the people uses a GW official one.

Ikea sells them with cm and inch for 1€.


IKEA link? I can't find them.

NVM... just realized you're talking about measuring tapes and not paint handles. Every dollar store in the US has tape measures for a buck.

In Harrogate today and they have lots of issue 2. Sold out of issue 1.

Post by: Aeneades


The website links to a survey still which I think would have been removed if they were ready for full rollout. As issue 2 has only just been released in Yorkshire I expect 2 more weeks of test issues with issue 4 being the final issue released. They will then review the sales and survey responses before deciding how (and if) to proceed later in the year. I wouldn’t expect to see it officially launched before May. Those who have signed up on the website should get the four trial issues as well.

The 20th release date was posted above and came from someone else on Facebook. I wonder if they have just been misinformed by the local shop and that’s actually when trial issue 3 is released.

All of Yorkshire? Or just North Yorkshire (I've seen York and Harrogate mentioned).

Maybe I was just slow for the Leeds copies, but I haven't seen it anywhere.

That is exactly my problem. I've just started working again but £32 a month is a bit too far just for the odd paint or mini I might use. I literally might just see what individual ones come with what.

Checked the main WH Smiths in town - no sign of it with the part works or the wargaming magazines. As someone mentioned, it might just be being trialled in North Yorkshire, rather than the whole of God's Own County.

Just looked on the WHSmith retailer app.. and its not there yet, so severely doubt a Tues countrywide launch, usually up for preorder a week or two before.. going to ring them on Monday and ask again, but the agent I spoke to on Thurs couldn't find it, but did recall a message about it, just not what the message entailed.. I'm guessing the preview launch.

They did the same thing with their Black Library book collection.

Guess they really want everyone to subscribe and not bother shipping to retailers. Haven't seen this anywhere yet. Not to worry, I just wanted to scab the cheap early issues, no interest in a pot luck ongoing. Sad for those who might want it though but won't get to try it cheap before committing.

I'm sure there will be a general retail release across the UK.

I think a trial release plus offering a sub early will allow the makers to judge how many issues they'll need for ongoing sales.

If enough people are into it for the full 80 issues, others will be able to benefit from the back issue sales that tend to accompany a store website so they can pick and choose. Just check the Hachette and Eaglemoss websites. All of the graphic novels are in there. Wait long enough and you could even get a sale price!

A good point well made.

Website is https://hachettepartworks.com/

Please note that Conquest is not yet showing on this website - which supports that it's in a trial phase. I'd expect an official launch later in the year (those that've subscribed already will end up with two sets of the trial issues, but only pay the once)

The relative excitement of not knowing what you are going to receive.

If it's like Battle Games in Middle Earth, some issues could be scenario based.

Pure conjecture but something like issue 20 coming with the sprue of easy build Cadians and the scenario being that your Intercessors have to rescue them from the Death Guard.

I'm relatively comfortable with 32 quid every month for a couple of months at least. As the issues go on, they could start introducing the different types of brush for GW's paint system.

To me it sounds like it did generate enough interest and will now be released nationwide. They just are not bothering to send the trial issues to internet subscribers but will instead send them 3 issues for free when it does launch properly later in the year.

They always tend to release trials in the north east as it’s a tough market and if they do well there then they should do well nationwide.

This is pretty much word for word the email they sent to people for the Transformers Ultimate Generation 1 Collection series they published, which was released nationally shortly after a similar four issue trial for what it's worth.

Yeah I just got the same email; a big ‘if’ in there....hopefully this roles out either soon or long enough that I have forgotten and get a cool surprise package in the post.

I’m guessing this down to demand or the title being “Conquest” and there being some copyright issue.

3 issues free is a nice touch but I would have preferred the full price ones for free, still we’ll see if that happens!

This was always a trial release and never going to make it passed issue 4 (surprised they stopped at 3 to be honest as they advertised all four and that would have completed the intro boxset). Sounds like there was a lot of demand which is why they are planning to launch the full title in the near future and can’t see Conquest being an issue at all.

Definitely not a copyright issue in my opinion, it’s not like they planned all this without GW knowing the situation and such.
It is a classic Hachette thing to pause and relaunch.
So demand is the one I think.

3 issues and there’s already a free issue for subscribing (which curiously said your second delivery, but then everywhere else was saying issue 3. So I wonder if we would just get all four for free).

Cool surprise for me I think unless they email before sending (I’d imagine they won’t as they want people to stick with it an email might make you think oh yeah this, I’ll cancel).
Now I’ll stop browsing forums for info on it and just forget about it.

Kind of wish I’d taken out a few subscriptions if we are getting the starter ones free

Fantasy Flight Games lost the licence for Warhammer Games last year or maybe the year before so the Conquest card game was cancelled then. All rights to use the Warhammer 40k Conquest name would have reverted to Games Workshop.

A license does not normally/necessarily pass ownership of developed product/IP to the Licensor.

All that definitely happens at the end of a license is that the licensee has to cease use of said license.

Ownership of the developed product doesn’t pass to the licensor but Games Workshop have always owned the copywrite to the name “Wargammer 40k: Conquest”, I just checked the rule book which confirms - https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/a4/bc/a4bc6af6-4510-4ecb-8623-5a4d0f81fd72/rules-reference-web.pdf

This new product most likely couldn’t use any of the rules developed by Fantasy Flight (which it wouldn’t do as that is a card game) but Games Workshop are fully entitled to reuse the name.

GW aren’t stupid anyway, they wouldn’t let Hachette choose that name and print several copies of the magazine if they weren’t sure it could be used (I wouldn’t be surprised if they chose the name for them - and to fully take that name back as it were).

It means they sold enough in the toughest market in the UK to go national, likely in May. Bear in mind there's been no TV advertising or indeed any advertising at all and they still picked up a large number of subscribers.
So there is someone at GW frantically writing more issues.

An interesting picture from the back of issue 4. If issue 5 ever appears you will get a new space marine hero. I doubt it is exclusive so it begs the question of when it will see general release. I really hope this goes world wide. I would definitely get a subscription. I doubt it ever will though.

Interesting that they are introducing new character models so soon rather than reusing some of the existing ones but a good way to get regular players to pick up certain issues if these models remain exclusive to the magazine for at least a few months.

It is not. The heroes series is all old school marines. This is a primaris. It could be from series two which we haven't seen yet, but the hint suggested old school terminators.

I have found a photo of the Japanese captain, definitely not that model either.

The trouble with the Japanese collection is that they are slightly bigger than a regular marine but significantly smaller than the Primaris marines from issues 1 and 3. I think they will want to be consistent with the marine size for the moment at least.

Quantity was always my concern with this especially for the first couple of issues where they order a huge amount for a discounted amount.

That one was from a couple of people at a FLGS (one of which was a staff member, FWIW). They claimed that GW's production capacity was still maxed out (look at how much stuff is still "Temporarily out of stock") and they hadn't accounted for how much stock Hachette actually wanted.

IF that is the case, could it be the supply of paints that would cause more of a problem. Some of those who managed to get a trial issue stated it was the full size pots as per the publicity photos.

Anyhoo, if there is normally a couple of months between trial and the main run, there would be some lead in time to produce more figures/ paints.

I'm still looking forward to it especially if, as per the preview for issue 5, you could end up with character figures for £7.99.

Just sounds like hearsay. If the demand was that big I expect they'd be even more likely to go ahead, not less.

Would be disappointing if it doesn’t go ahead as it’s a great way to get new people into the hobby and I enjoy the graphic novel partworks so a gaming partworks also appeals to me.

Post by: Danny76


I don’t know how a staff member in an FLGS would know anything about this. It’s not even the target store - rather WHSmiths and newsagents.

The website said all along what was going to be provided in the magazines.
Just imagine if GW ‘didn’t know’ what was expected of them. There will have been huge discussions between the two companies before undertaking the print and packaging of the trial, let alone the whole thing.


Warhammer 40,000 Conquest @ 2018/05/03 09:49:39


Post by: OrlandotheTechnicoloured


The source does sound like it's not terribly believable,

but I could certainly see GW imagining they'd have solved their production bottleneck by now, but finding they haven't

(either because they still haven't been able to get the additional power supply to the site to run more machines, or because they're just selling so much more stuff that even when they've boosted production they still find it isn't enough to cover demand)

I imagine they get the first x issues created and ready, so that there's no delays, and then while they are sending out the first month or so's issues, they can be creating the next batch.

Update from the Games Workshop Annual Report: https://s19485.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/2017-18-Press-statement-final-v.pdf

We have also been working on some new initiatives to help introduce people to Warhammer:
• Space Marine Heroes - Our push off the frame, push fit miniatures, sold as blind collectibles, placed in over 250 new outlets
in Japan. The series launches globally later this year along with series 2 in Japan.
• Partworks - We learnt a great deal from the Battle Games in Middle-earth partwork launched back in 2002. And some of
those lessons were painful! Now though, I think we are in the best position we’ve ever been to have another go.
‘Warhammer 40,000 Conquest’, a serialised product, will launch this summer.


Bold is mine.

So just for clarification. The marine heroes are getting a world-wide release, the conquest partworks isn't?

That Middle Earth partwork from '02 was my initial steps into this hobby. It was great value for money and was great in general for a newbie. I'd be interested in picking up this one too just for the hell of it if it were available.

At the moment, no.

But, Hachette have previously made stuff available in U.K., EU and Australia/New Zealand.

Oz and NZ got the Dredd Megacollection, albeit a few months after the U.K. and EU. (Five, to be more precise)

Not sure what the criteria is for such a release, but at least it seems possible.

Pleased I signed up for this early as I received an email saying my first 3 issues would be free for being a supporter. I’ve ordered a couple of extra first issues as well because who can’t use marines, black paint and an extra brush, eh?

However, I’m a bit puzzled what will be included in future issues. I have presumed it will be models each time but they will rapidly run out of easy build ones. Aggressors? A redemptor split over multiple issues? A blight hauler? Then what? Do you think they have more easy build models in the works? Will they start putting bits of terrain on the cover instead?

When it was first trialled it was listed as UK only. Not sure if that has changed. Would be nice if it did and would help them spread the cost of developing new easy build models.

I think we'll see some new models. The preview for the unreleased Issue 5 had a Primaries Ultramarine Lieutenant an (as yet) unreleased model.

The Dredd, 2000AD and Black Library collections are available individually, sometimes at a sale price! Check the Hachette website to see if magazine partworks are available as individual back issues.

I was worrying it’d be a subscribe if you want stuff and no longer in shops after 4 or 5, like a lot of partworks.

Got the e-mail as well, not sure if I'm going to stick with it long term (as I already have two ongoing partwork subs and there are another couple of them probably starting soon that also look interesting), but figure I'll at least get the 3 free issues and see what the mag is like before deciding. At least this is one where even if you cancel part way through the stuff you get is still useful, unlike the ones where you build something over so many issues.

Will be interested to see if the paints are still the full paint pots or whether that was just for the trial run to avoid the need to have to make up special batches of paint in a different pot, as that definitely helps towards the value.

I'm pretty intrigued! The old lord of the rings magazine really got me into the hobby back in the day, I'll at least do the first month to get the free stuff, and I need a bit of reinforcements for my armies anyway. Looks like it contains everything from Dark Imperium but I wonder how they'll do the tanks and bigger things. Maybe over 4 mags since you get 4 at once(says they're delivered once a month)?

Yep! It’s a recent thing they started to offer in last couple of years, often it’s additional large books or art prints however the contents are advertised in advance. This is so nondescript that they could offer extra models / terrain or it could just be some cards and a cheap folding mat which you wouldn’t pay £5 for usually. I much prefer the other option they sometimes offer instead where they offer them as special issues every so often and you decide at the time if you want them or not rather than commit at the outset.

Looks like it's still the full size paint pots then, or at least, they're still showing them on the website (annoyingly, I need to pick up a pot of Macragge Blue for a project I want to work on next week, but will get a pot when my free issues turn up).

Haven't tried to work out how the price stacks up, but the total cost of approx. £624 (I think) doesn't sound a bad price for the volume of stuff shown in the image.

Not sure about the premium subscription, though I'm guessing what's in the picture is just one of the four sets that you get, so maybe worth the £30 it costs for that.

That's cool. But I don't care much for out-of-scale Marines.

I'm weird, I want the less desirable stuff - the spawn, the battlefield accessory set, and, yes, obviously, the terrain.

That plague mortar tank would be cool though. Ain't got any of them in my DG army.

I guess the Plaguedrone thingy or whatever it's called would be the E-Z-2-Bild one, and not a proper kit?

I'd imagine that some of the more sprue-intensive kits (the Mechanicus terrain, the plague mortar, the silly floating tank with too many guns) would be across multiple issues.

I mean, that one Sector Mechanicus piece they've got there is 3 sprues. An single Munitorum crate is 1 sprue, and there are three of them there.

They have to be spread out.

But will they be consecutive issues, or dotted throughout the release schedule?

Guess I’ll find out, as I’ve subscribed.

So did some number crunching.

Here's what you get in total...

Spoiler:
Primaris Space Marines
Dark Imperium full
Apoth
Captain
Chaplain
Librarian
Redemptor
Repulsor
3 Aggressors
6 Reivers
5 Intercessors
drawing sword from scabbard guy??

Non-Primaris
BaC chaplain/termie captain
5 sniper scouts
5 regular scouts
3 bikes
1 attack bike
1 land speeder


Deathguard
Typhus
Lord Felthius + Retinue
2 Chaos Spawn
Plagueburst Crawler
Rhino
Myphitic Blight-hauler
10 Chaos cultists
Plague Sergeon
Plague Champion
Icon Bearer
Foul Blightspawn
Biologus Putrifier
Tallyman
3 Plague Marines (e2b)
12 Pox Walkers (e2b)


Terrain
Armoured Containers
Galvanic Magnavent
Haemotrope Reactors
Galvanic Servohaulers
Thermic Plasma Regulators
Accessory Kit
Sector Imperialis Objectives
Ryza-pattern Ruins


Were this available to us Aussies, i'd be a fair bargain!
The FAQ says 80 issues in total. 80 x 7.99 = 640GBP for the full run. At the current exchange rate that's $1124.48AUD
To buy all these kits individually (and assuming it's the easy-2-build kits for some of the primaris guys), Total cost of minis bought individually = $2349AUD approx. This is also assuming there wont be some arbitrary Australia tax applied.
All that doesn't take into account the freebies + paints you get. Which wont tack on a huge cost, but aren't cheap in their own rights.

Two full armies and terrain for not quite half price.
Even if you weren't interested in one or the other armies, that's hard to pass up. If this comes down under, I'll certainly be signing up.

Thats the thing, I love the look of this and I signed up originally so I'll have the 3 issues for free, but do I need this?

I've already got the primaris side of Dark Imperium unbuilt. So I'll end up with double that, plus the extras.

It's interesting that cultists and spawn are in, that will be fun, I've never picked up the spawn kits. I have some cultists, but not done much with them.

I wonder after 80 issues how many DG/Primaris armies will be out there, and how cheap you'll be able to get it all (These part work companies often do sales, to blow out old stock, so you could end up with these at £1 or so an issue later on!)

I wonder if they'll provide a pot of paint or two each week as well? This could turn out to be incredible value. I've already ordered enough issues 1 extras that I'll probably never need another pot of Abaddon Black.

I imagine the paints will gradually disappear as the release goes on and people have all the paints they need, probably as the larger sprues start being included. Maybe with the occasional additional paint being included to tie in with the more advanced techniques as they appear in the painting guide, I seem to remember that was the case with BGIME.

I've just gone for the standard subscription, don't fancy those extra bits with the premium.

I'll be keeping the primaris/marines and the terrain, but selling the Death Guard parts on to a chap in my local gaming group. Still, decent value with paint and extra bits!

I am impressed by the complete collection, I already have a sizeable Death Guard collection but will gladly add bits from the Vanilla marines to my Deathwatch and make a home brew chapter for the bits that do not fit in.

£32 odd a month is a reasonable investment for a bit of hobby joy every month.

Unless I guess the 'launch' is actually the pre-order date and the first issue being delivered is a month later


This has been on the pre-order system available for retailers for 3-4 weeks now, this is just the announcement to the consumers that it will be available.


Hmm, I was in WH Smiths at the weekend and they didn't have it on their system, and i'd expect them too, especially as the did get it during the trial (for stores in the trial location)


I work at smiths. Its on the system as "warhammer 40000 partwork" and the trial run was on under "warhammer 40000 partwork test". Ask them to do a product search for warhammer and it'll come up.


Thanks for that I'll poke them tomorrow and see if they can find it with the extra info

I was thinking they’d probably do AoS later down the line, maybe come back with another Middle Earth as that’s being relaunched as a game too..

It is good to see that full picture, to know where we are heading as before it was so unclear it could have been anything.

I think you can split that picture into 80 pretty much.
Though people need to bear in mind not every issue has miniatures (perhaps for subscribers that’s because 2-4 issues would creat one kit - but then how would they do it for those who buy single issues..)
They said themselves ‘with most issues having new miniatures’

The deluxe version, really would depend on what’s in those other boxes, as the first doesn’t install excitement. As long as the ‘big picture’ is what we get in the standard, not deluxe, then I’m fine.

I agree the paints will probably fall off down the line, which is a shame, as that’s adding good value.
Perhaps halfway another pot of certain colours, as well as all stuff not needed yet but down the line. (Oh and technicals..)

I guess I’ll run my subscription down till at least the 7th delivery to see all the free gifts come, as why not. Though that’s still £184 Of magazines by then, so why not go the whole way once I’m that invested..

I’ve got the first ones free like the others here, so to me that’s looking at your first delivery being 1-4, 4 ETB’s, brush, dice, 6 paints, AND the modelling kit (it said included in first delivery..)

I also grabbed some more of issue 1 for the extra paints, and I suppose models, from the newsstand website. £7 for 3x issue 1 wasn’t bad.

Anyone notice that the FAQ states when the new 'exclusive' miniature is released? Issue 5

"Is any of the content in this collection new?

Games Workshop have created a brand-new Space Marine army for this collection. The Silver Templars will have their own unique colour schemes, armour markings and history which will be developed and expanded with each new issue. There is also an exclusive new miniature included with Issue 05."

Yeah there’s a picture of him on here somewhere, those that got the trial had a picture at the back of issue 4.
He’s probably in that tiny scale whole army view somewhere - quality isn’t great to look though.


Also to add to what I was saying before, those of us getting free issues are really only saving £6 when subscribing, as issues 1 & 2 were £6, issue 3 was free in delivery two (3-6 for £24).
Still it’s good to get something!

I just don’t know what to do with several of the models I don’t want, just use to paint up for fun (like I need off topic things to paint from my armies).
Plague marines I’m all set for my DG, now once we get to some of the stuff in that picture, then we will be fine..

Primaris I have none, but this is in effect a 5th 40k army for me if so..
My study is already full and I’m not sure my wife will let me spill out of there with models..

Oh the dilemma of wanting to collect things..

Yeah, I'd happily buy the unique Lieutenant and maybe the Primaris Chaplain & Apothecary at 8 quid each, but those issues are likely to vanish rapidly especially if the places doing singles don't limit purchases per-customer(and in a way that can't be easily circumvented, like payment method and address, rather than just per-transaction) once the scalperscum get wind of this. Hopefully I remember to keep checking and get one ordered in time.

Forbidden Planet have pre orders for the first 12 issues now. Do they ship to Europe? If not, I'm sure someone could stick an order in for you and forward it. I'll do it myself if you're stuck, although I'm still pretty new here so understand if you want a more established member to grab it for you.

The gifts for subscribers have changed on the website:

http://www.warhammer40000conquest.com/

Instead of a folders for the first delivery you get a modelling set (glue and clippers). That seems like a much better incentive.

The mug and art book have disappeared and a brush set has been added. Seems better overall although the poster is a bit naff.

Surprised there is no primer involved. Are they proposing people pant straight onto the plastic?

Post by: TwilightSparkles


The previous easy build revell 40k kits did indeed suggest you paint into bare plastic, the idea was to use the paint for colour details, like black bolters etc Fact they've used coloured plastic suggests that's the case this time. Even so if the big picture is accurate I think this is an ambitious product and the fact they've got even one exclusive suggests they think it's going to sell.

As a heads up, I got the promised e-mail for trial run subscribers today about updating payment information, but was unable to link my subscription to my online account. I phoned customer services and they said that this wouldn't actually be possible until the 29th when the magazine goes on sale.

So figured this might save some of you a few minutes and a phone call (unless customer services were incorrect).

Cheers Tavis, was literally about to ring and thought I would just check here first to see what people were saying.
I hope that doesn’t mean we get ours late though? Shouldn’t as our first delivery is free anyway..

You will only pay once unless you link your original one to a set of bank details.
But the one you are paying for will be standard not with the first one free (that’s for existing subscribers, which you are now not).
I would ring and explain/cancel the new one you just took out.

Did you not get the email last week saying you’d get free bits for being loyal, and that an email (this one) will follow with how to set up payment details again?
2 emails total, to get all the info we needed to resub.

I'm of two minds about this!

On the one hand it gives some paints and tools and guides and might mean that I finally get some actual painting done on models that I don't actually "need/want" for my armies (thus mistakes are not an issue).

On the other its still a decent chunk of money each month and I don't "need" the stuff as such.

It is a really neat idea and I hope it works well! That it basically gives you two full armies and a table full of terrain after around 2 years for a fairly steep discount on the normal purchase price is a great thing


Another part of me is kind of wondering if they'll do a sigmar version
