How do?

So, Hachette and GW are at it again!

AoS theme Conquest equivalent.

First issue? £2.99 bags you three Sequitors, and 10 Chain Rasps. That is categorically not a price to be sniffed at, eh!

So far no group shot of the entire collection, or word on any possible exclusive models, ala Lt Calsius.

I think, going back that far, we never got a group shot till the actual full release.
The trial stage we only ever found up to 6 (as 4 had the next two on it).

The website is set up the exact same way, with the survey etc. So I’m guessing there is a soft launch and then full later in the year..

We might get more details at the Nova today - its looking interesting though at £32 a month that's not small change, but certainly more than worth what you get. I'd have thought £16 or £20 might be a bit more suitable on a per-month basis, but then that would double the duration of the subscription period.


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2019/08/28 11:08:50

Yeah, but it worked for 40k.
They won’t change it for this.

People will pay it, even if it gets too many models in one go.
(And anyone running both subscriptions, 8 Issue drops per month, hefty work cut out for them).

Post by: Mad Doc Grotsnik


Yup.

So far, the Conquest ones have varied in overall saving - but none have had content worth less than the cover price.

Tanks and bigger stuff are spread out over consecutive issues too, and you get a decent amount of terrain across the collection.

Hopefully they've learned some lessons, and tweaked things appropriately. For instance, Conquest quickly had 'doubler' issues, where the content was the same as a previous one. Not exactly a deal breaker, but I'd have preferred new stuff.

For a beginner though? It's hard to whack this sort of value. Whether you're looking at doing the armies involved, or looking to start in AoS, this should be good.

I was happy with what I got out of Conquest. I tapped out around issue 20, and picked up the odd character model/ Plagueburst crawler issue. Will definitely be subscribing to this.

Do we know if this will have a geographically isolated trial period like Conquest or is this a full on release straight away?

FAQ says that but subscription page only accepts UK addresses unless there is a separate page for Irish subs in Euro. EDIT it actually accepts Eircodes so it will ship to Ireland on an Eircode but my Eircode gives the wrong address (Eircodes are property specific and unique so that shouldn’t happen) although I can override the address.

I’ll be snapping up lots of issue 1 and 2 on release but I’ve no need of a sub for all of it. Conquest seems to have vanished from newsagents here so this will probably go the same way after awhile.

Hmm, definitely seems like another strong offer if you're into it.

I'm not really interested in AOS enough to justify it, but I might pick up the first couple at least where you get the really big savings.

I wonder if they'll go a bit heavier on Contrast paints this time.

Ah - I was just going by your flag

The 40k one has been released in Spain, Oz, New Zealand and just recently Italy. I think Germany had a trial too.

I suspect the slow roll-out is to do with stock (and doing the translations maybe?). For some of the issues with bigger savings, back issues would sell out immediately on their own website.

To be fair, as I'd only be interested in the 1st issue, I imagine there's a lot of people in the same boat. I do wonder in general if the "collectathon" style magazines where you get one toothpick a week to construct your own titanic are still as good a seller as in 90s-00s?

Stock and translation - its likely why the USA hasn't seen it done because that would likely require a massive amount of stock to be produced, shipped and stored. Considering that you can lose the whole of the UK in national parks in the USA its no surprise that GW might be more cautious at rolling it out state-side. At least until their new factory is onilne and the power limits resolved.

Hachette still successfully run hundreds of them and constantly produce more, so I would imagine so

it isn’t the wonder whether there was a market. They know how big a market there is for 40k by sales.

It is logistical. They would put it in every country If they could! (Almost every..).

I think it will come in time, but I guess it is down to Hachette not GW anyway..
Some of their part works have made it to the US I believe

Don't forget the main focus of this product isn't to give gamers cheap models but to get those on the fence and non-gamers gaming with GW products. The last thing GW wants to do is release something like this in the USA and then hit massive supply problems when the market eats it all up - esp if the market that ate it up was already GW customers.

Part of this product line is getting new gamers and thus increasing GW's sales.

As an aside, if you're really interested in the first issues, sign up now.

If it turns out to be a trial launch, Hachette will let you know and you'll be charged nothing. If it is like Conquest, they will also say thanks for applying and offer you the first three issues for free should you subsequently join up at the full launch.

The real question is whether it will actually cost me less for the starter set equivalents than just...well, buying the starter. We saw from Conquest the bulk was the starter set pieced out. I can grab a copy of Soul Wars for £71.25 from Dark Sphere right now. Assuming that the three Nighthaunt characters take an issue each, as does the Grimghast reapers, another unit of rasps, two Stormcast character, the ballista, and thesequitors and castigators additions; that's what, ten more issues? At £8 each? Once you add in the cost of the first four issues, we're just tripping a hundred quid for models that I could spend seventy for and buy right now. More if the bigger Stormcast character or ballista get spread over two issues.

I'm happy to be proven wrong on this, but unless they put a lot more in per issue than they did with Conquest, there's not much point in subscribing. Just grab the odd issue instead from forbidden planet.

5ey likely won’t split sprues, so that’s 8 Soul Wars sprues, making up 8 issues of the 80 planned, for £64. Same as Conquest and Dark Imperium. Certainly not the bulk of the collection.

Would be interested on speculation on what we might see though.

Post by: Casualty


I haven't ventured into AoS at all yet, but if this is as well thought out as Conquest, I'd be highly tempted.

Apart from the odd bit of duplication of models early on, I've been really charmed at how well planned out the progression in rules, accessories and even paints have been for Conquest. It's cleverly paced so as to give you something you can actually paint and play with almost immediately, and it builds steadily on that. Your first flier comes with an explanation of flying rules and a means to test them out, for example, and the array of scenarios let you play actual games while giving you a feel for each new thing and how it interacts with all the previous things.

Every four issue cluster - each delivery - seems to be sorted so as to have one bit of terrain/scatter, some models, and some new paints with a new accompanying painting tip or technique. The cheapy cardboard battle mats aren't exactly glamourous, but every so often an issue introduces a new "piece" you can add or lay onto them in a way that changes the landscape, like a bridge or building.

A lot of the painting guides and some of the accessories are probably redundant to folks here, absolutely, but I will say I genuinely think that for somebody coming into the game or still finding their feet, the magazines do have more value than just the model discount. I would not say that for most partworks, I think Conquest is genuinely well executed for what it is and I'll strongly consider this on the back of it.

If this runs to the same timetable as conquest the trial launched around the end of Feb 2018 and the real deal hit at the beginning of September so 6 months later

so this one is probably going to go live for real at the beginning of March

Edit: and we're on issue 52 of 80 (?) for Conquest, so getting to the beginning of March is 26 issues so my guess is this will launch on Wed 18th March the week after conquest ends by my calculations. That will mean potential customers aren't having to double up on subscriptions, not that's going to be a problem for everybody, but I'm sure they realise that a decent number of those who picked up Conquest will also be interested in Mortal Realms. It also means they don't 'loose' potential customers who will give up on things if there isn't a magazine to remind them this stuff is fun

Post by: leopard


LotR partwork is likely to require all sorts of discussions with the rights holder, not saying it won't happen again, but less likely for now.

thinking more on this, as others have commented if this is the trial and less likely to fully kick off just yet it becomes a lot harder to say no to. If it follows Conquest (no reason it wouldn't) expecting to see (for both sides):

- starter set models
- every blister pack character
- every 'easy to build' set
- couple of other models, likely the 'older' ones (not that these ranges are that old)

plus a scattering of terrain kits

paint range may have a decent bit of overlap with Conquest but that I can live with.

plus get a model holder to sit along side the other (unused) one etc.

actually pretty tempted, heck and I have only ever actually played one game of AoS

it reads pretty standard, but expanded, there is new stuff here too, though the quality of the writing is a bit variable as you would expect. decent artwork to go with it though, mostly old, some new.

as actually surprised, I expected the magazines to be fodder for recycling, but actually they are pretty decent.

the scenario stuff is good too. as are the paint guides, though presumably once you have built stuff they and the instructions can be binned if desired.

but the fluff bits, ok you won't read and re-read them, but they are decent enough and don't all feel like copy & pasta stuff

The magazines aren't huge and I don't think it'll be revelatory stuff for anybody with a core book and a working knowledge of the Ultramarines/Death Guard in particular early on, but it's actually more than I expected and it's often used to contextualise whatever new model you just got or a chapter that makes particular use of it.

It brings a nice bit of character to the models, enough that I do sit down and read my four new mags before breaking out the clippers.

Nope. The only options they had were Stormcast vs Chaos or Stormcast vs Nighthaunt as these collections are predominantly made up of sprues from a starter box and easy to build kits (any other factions would need to be more advanced standard kits which cost more than easy to build and are less suitable for a beginner). Nighthaunt are the more recent models and more distinctive compared to Chaos so were the more likely choice.

Generally, unless you can find them In a physical store which are usually limited to the north east then you won’t get the issues. They have the online sign up page to get an indication of how many people are interested.

If you so sign up online now then you may find that if this does go ahead then you receive the first 4 issues for free as a thank you for waiting so long.

Traditionally, early subscribers get the first four for free once it launches proper.

Which is nice.

Though it's worth noting that the subscription signup page does say you'll get your first set of issues within 28 days, Don't know if Conquest also said that, but I'd assume that means you're at least getting something?

No it did.
As it’s the same page setup that will be live during actual.

That’s why you got the email and the offer of the free mags.
To say thanks for the interest and waiting.

Just to add to this, I think it is live now or will be soon - the subscription is showing up in my account along with the 40K Conquest one (although, confusingly, the thumbnail picture of the mag they are using is of a Routemaster bus). Hopefully, it will be out soon.

I'm part of a facebook group and the trial runs are showing up in Spain as well as the UK so if that's anything to go by there might be quite a big release if they're releasing it at the same time everywhere in Europe.

Funnily enough, the magazine's first issue is 2 euro in contrast to £2.99. Feeling a little hard done by!

The first one did if you already had a login on there, even at trial stage.

Though it could be sooner, I’d rather it isn’t as then they will do the free first ones offer again

Keen on getting down to business with it, I've never done a part works before and having just picked up Conquest issue 1 from Italy I have plenty of gold for the Stormcast!

Will say if I receive anything, I'm expecting my delivery in the next 10 or so days (I subbed on the 28th of August).

You are likely to not receive any deliveries until next year.

This was only a trial run in a small part of the UK. If the trial was successful then it properly launches about 3 months later so would expect Issue 1 to hit the stores at Christmas at the earliest.

As a thank you for signing up during the trial run you are likely to get a couple of free issues as a thank you for waiting so long.

Conquest sign up during trial said exactly the same thing about getting first delivery within 28 days. Then it was about a four or so month before they emailed to say the full version was launching and you had to reconfirm you still wanted to take part.

I'm on the fence about subscribing to this one. Stormcast hold little appeal to me (much like the primaris from conquest) but I would like the ghosty boys. This might be the sort of thing I pick up individual issues of.

Also, has there been an image released of the full collection yet, like what was seen for conquest? I'd like to know what terrain/larger units we might see in this.

With Conquest the big image of the entire collection wasn’t released until they launch the real subscription rather than trial one.

The trial run was very limited, and only in a few cities. On top of that, scalpers pillaged most places that sold them to sell them later 10 times the price pretending it's a good deal.
I didn't manage to get a copy, and I doubt any are available anywhere. Gotta wait till January!

As far as I know, the trial run is only in Bilbao and Malaga. Number 2 hasn't released as of yet, or at least my guy couldn't find it. If you want number 1 and are near Bilbao, my mom got me 2 (neither she nor the kiosk lady understood anything I was telling them by phone). If you want it it's yours.

That’s a good omen for getting these out to many countries for people, Conquest took too long for them they are so behind us.


So many questions here where I don’t think people are realising it is a trial run at the moment..

I guess main post being updated would be handy for those that aren’t reading through the thread.

Don't think so. I think it was a straight release.

In other news, finally number 2 is in kiosks. 4.99 € for the magazine, white paint, a brush and 4 ghosts.

I must admit that by this stage of the Conquest trial I had been notified that no deliveries were coming at present and that there would be the free issues due once the true launch happened as a thank you.

I suppose the main indicator that the main launch isn't due yet is the lack of Mortal Realms on the main Hachette website and my main go to place for single issues, Forbidden Planet, have nothing on their site either.

You may well be in the test area and that was some surviving stock. Although, having said that, I thought they only tested issues 1-4 during the pilot?

Like the others have said, when I signed up to the 40K one, I got an email straight away saying it was in pilot but if it launched I would be told and given some free issues. So far, haven't had the same with the AoS one despite it showing on my active subscriptions (still complete with thumbnail of Routemaster bus)

Spanish number 4 came with a letter from the publisher (not hachette, the local one) saying that sadly the collection would not continue for the time being, but that when it relaunched it would receive a national ad campaign so we wouldn't miss it, or something along those lines.

Sounds like they are in the process of sending out the letters informing.

It’s a shame it is only the first two issues free.
As they are likely the £2, £5 ones. So it’s 3&4 that go up to £8 each.

Would be good if someone has issue 4, and 6 if that is indeed out on shelves (which is odd as the trial was just 4 with Conquest wasn’t it?).
Those pictures on the back will get us up to the 8th issue contents.

Little bit disappointed that we only get two issues free but beggars can't be choosers. Still awaiting my letter but at least it's going out to people.

I think it'll be a good intro to the game for me and even if I don't play, I have cheap models to experiment on.


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2019/10/21 12:30:58


Post by: Danny76


Got mine this morning. Meant to say in that post.

Yeah I thought that with the models, but like I need more to practice on etc ha ha.
I’m just a sucker for these things.

With Conquest I did up to the last free gift. But I was doing a DG army so it was worth it to get all my characters and units cheap (I then just started getting individual issues).

If we get a full list then we shall see what’s in it.
(Queue the people wondering if things like Ossiarch will be in it, much like the new Chaos Marine release, lots of people saying they bet they will do those in there. But kits like that are new and exciting, they sell on their own backs).

letter landed here today

ahh well.

as for the contents, expect one of every "easy to build" model, the starter set, various generic bits of terrain, paint, one or two specific models but nothing else "new", the point isn't to undercut normal sales but to provide a visually interesting range of models that is the hook to buying more.

curious to see the full lot when they show a poster though

My take on Conquest, and it could also be valid for Mortal Realms, is that by collecting the whole series you gain a gateway into the Games Workshop world of wargaming without needing to visit one of their stores ever. It's a self-cpntained games system in its own right and not aimed at established players, although the benefit of £7.99 Rhinos (£15.98 including accessory sprue) and character models was great though.

The armies are not necessarily geared towards mainstream 40K games. The scenarios provided by the magazines mix and match the models required. Apart from the first couple of issues, I don't think there has been a scenario that places all of the models provided onto the table.

To that end, there may not be a requirement for the number of Nightgaunt units to squarely match up to the Stormcast.

There isn’t enough Death Guard to Match Marines.
But they only needed about 20 issues for each faction

That's my point. The established players get the perks of cheap models and cherry picking individual issues, as long as you don't rely on the Hachette website that is.

Two siblings or mates who live in the middle of nowhere get a home delivered mini games system that is more scenario based than big matched armies.

It's like they were inspired by the classic "Last Stand at Glazer's Creek" battle report.

In reality, past the obvious desire of Hachette and GW to make a metric ton of cash, who knows what the design aim of these partworks actually is?

I assume that the first block of issues will build up to something comparable to soul wars, but I’m not too sure where they will go from that. I guess the storm cast have a lot of easy to build stuff from first edition but I’m not too sure about the night haunt. Also a question of what scenery - if any - they out in as they did with conquest

I never bought conquest. I'm not super into 40k anymore but i heard alot of positivity around it so subbed to mortal realms when it first got announced.

I am however not sure how long i will keep the sub going -
Is the magazine going to be worth it(a saving) for someone who has been in the hobby a long time and has all the paints? I mainly looked at it as possibly a cheaper way of expanding my original stormcast army.

The magazine will be worth it, and if you paint a lot, more paints are never a bad thing, as paints are quickly becoming the most expensive part of the hobby as time goes on for me.

Even picking up the issue with retributor armour is good value as that's a premium metallic paint, the extra stuff that may come with it is a bonus.

If you're just after Stormcast issues, keep an eye on the Forbidden Planet website.

If they sell it the same they have Conquest, you'll know what will be in each issue months in advance and can advance order. Plus they sell issues for 50 pence off the retail price although P&P is £2 per issue or £3 for two issues. Every little helps.

The Hachette website normally seems to be sold out the day the issue is in the shops.

£5.50 for 3 or more issues.
So for instance, back at issue 40 odd of Conquest, I ordered all the remaining 9 or so issues I wanted. It’s all in one postage price. Though they send them every so often as they release

I never knew that. Where issues have been a month or so apart, I've paid the separate postage. Still cheaper than GW/ discounters retail prices though.

I'll bear it in mind, especially when Forbidden Planet reveal the covers up to issue 80.

Yeah as soon as they put the whole lot up I just pre ordered all the remaining Death Guard bits as that’s all I wanted.

I would have happily waited till the last one became available and gotten them all at once, but they just send each release as normal.
So definitely worth doing!

I'm seriously considering ordering seven of them. Seventy chainrasps for about the price of ten sounds like the only way I can get a big block of them for a reasonable price. Fifty bucks for a set of ten easy-to-build models you need swarms of is ridiculous.

Update: I placed the order, and added one each of issues 2 and 4. Hopefully they will have enough to meet the no-doubt crazy levels of demand.

Can someone with good eyesight and knowledge of the stormcast, nighthaunt and terrain ranges do a quick recap of what we are getting?

I'm not a Fantasy player collector so the collection as a whole isn't necessarily for me but some of the terrain, character and paint/ brush issues may be worth a purchase.

Can't see it all clearly, but i can see the celestant prime and all the nighthaunt characters in there. and warcy scenery interestingly.

Spoiler:


Hard to say for certain, but for the Nighthaunt side it looks like almost the entire range is represented. The three big named characters are there, and so is the Mortis Engine, which is really weird since it can't be fielded by Nighthaunt. I'm pretty sure I see the models for the Thorns of the Briar Queen in there too, and hexwraiths.

Seems I'll be ordering a lot of these issues...

Post by: Overread


I think its in there because GW has put a "getting started" set in and that's included in the GS set. It might also be that Nighthaunt will get the model added to their force - which makes sense as its pretty much a fully nighthaunt designed model save for its alternative vampire mode.

Could also be the issue that teaches about alliances. and that would be easiest to do with death.

Hot diggity damn.
Looks like i might end up subscribing to this one as well if it makes down here seeing as i'd like the whole nighthaunt range. Terrain never goes astray either.


Also any one else noticed that the picture of the free gifts, they've removed the glass stein and replaced it with the water cup and palette book?

If I remember correctly the gifts for Conquest changed between the trial and actual launch. One was a poster of the Marine Chapters unless that has arrived as one of the three paid add ons after the art and Silver Templars books.

I haven't been home in the last three months to check what has been delivered.

I had a pretty close look at the Stormcast half and i think this might be the full line up. Assuming i'm right the Stormcast half comes to roughly $1000-$1100 Australian dollars if you had to buy everything directly from GW.

Exclusive Knight-Incantor
Celestant-Prime
ETB Mounted Astreia Solbright
Knight-Venator
Lord-Exorcist
Neave Blacktalon
Lord-Ordinator
Underworld: Stormsire's Cursebreakers
Underworld: The Farstriders

3 ETB Sequitors
3 ETB Castigators and 1 Gryph hound
1 ETB Ballista and 2 crew
3 Evocators on Celestial Dracolines
3 Vanguard-Raptors and 3 Aetherwings
3 Gryph Hounds
5 Judicators? (I'm not 100% positive, but it really looks like the models below the ETB Ballista have bows.)

Old starter set/Thunderstrike Brotherhood models:
Lord-Relictor
10 liberators
3 Retributors
3 Prosecutors

Soul Wars models:
Mounted Lord-Arcanum
Knight-Incantor
8 Sequitors
5 Castigators
3 Evocators
1 Ballista and 2 crew

That's really useful, thanks Mr Gutsy.

On the Nighthaunt side of things I can see (or think I can see):

Lady Olynder, Mortarch of Grief
Kurdoss Valentian, the Craven King
Mortis Engine
ETB Reikenor the Grimhailer
2 ETB Dreadblade Harrows
Knight of Shrouds on Steed from Soul Wars
Spirit Hosts
Dreadscythe Harridans
Bladegheist Renevants
Hexwraiths
Grimghast Reapers
Underworlds: Thorns of the Briar Queen

And we know confirmed are:
10 Chainrasp (Issue 1)
4 ETB Myrmourn Banshees (Issue 2)
4 ETB Glaivewraith Stalkers (Issue 4)

But there's a few bits I wasn't sure about so there'll be some missing from my list.

Three last time for Conquest. Only two this time.
Bit of a shame, basically the £2 and £5 issues if they’re doing the same as Conquest.

I’d love a full breakdown of issues at some point, as it made bulk ordering from FP great (one set of £5 postage, yet they sent all 8 issues I ordered individually as they released, at £7.50 too. Wasn’t too bad for when I got to the point of cancelling..

Image for those that don't click through:



Rrp faction wise (excluding whatever the books or pamphlets/ and paints)

Sylvaneth: £75
FEC: £55 (plus whatever the character will cost)
Orruks: £74
Khorne: £84.50

So nigh on £300 at rrp before paints and booklets. At £1.50 an issue over 80 issues that is £120 so there looks to be value in this option.

I think that for their previous magazine tou had to subscribe through Hattche directly and there was an option for the (more costly) premium subscription.

I presume it will be similar this time around.

Those extras are pretty good considering Conquests shambles..
So what’s that, after 28, 44, 60, 80 issues.
You gotta stick with it to benefit, but sure worth it compared to before..

And that’ll be what, £1 for us? Or £1.50?
Either way, trying to justify me not needing 2 different factions in AoS, let alone 6 total that this would add

So torn on what to about this overall..

This premium decision hasn’t helped (originally I just thought it’d be rubbish like before so didn’t consider it).
FEC I already have quite a lot of, so don’t need. Sylvaneth I’m liking the look of, Orruk you don’t get a lot there, then the Khorne is quite a random bunch of things..

It’s going to be £760 for all 80 issues on premium I think, so the deal is good, just a tricky decision particularly as no one is playing AoS around here, and I just had my second son arrive last week so money isn’t exactly going to be laying around..

Not particularly interested in anything in the premium sub, but it's good value for a change.

I pre-ordered three copies of issue one from Forbidden Planet so that will give me 40 chain rasps to play with. I don't know how viable they are but they're just cool models.

I am gonna try and pick them up from the local stores day one.
But the £6 postage on them takes away the deal a bit if I got 3 or so.
(Not that £4 isn’t still great, but I’d be getting them for the sake of it.. not because I Need/Want to have them)

Thanks for doing the maths (and posting it). I've been mulling over if I want to go for this. Two armies plus terrain and paints and all its an outstanding deal; but at the same time the sane part of my mind says that the bits I'd really want and make use of (terrain and paints) I can get for less than £760; and in the end whilst they are two awesome looking armies I'm really not in the market for more AoS armies. I've got Reapers and Slaanesh and Daughters of Khaine. It's not just that I don't "need" more its that I really don't have the time for more.

Makes me happier to decide to pass on this and not add to my mountain of plastic.

For the moment we don’t know. Maybe those that did conquest could say what issues they got the big vehicles, but even then that’s an educated guess

Wow. Those Premium extras are bloody good.
Certainly seem a lot more worthwhile than some cards repeating the rules in the magazine and some cardboard boxes. Conquest could have had some basic Chaos Marines, Daemons, some other Imperial stuff, or whatever.

As good an incentive as these extras are though, I'm not interested enough in the ghosts to sign up for a full subscription. Might try and get the odd one or two issues for interesting Stormcast dudes for conversions.

The main site is still up, and it's not actually launched until 8th January 2020, so I'd give it another week. They've also appointed a new customer care company so a new portal website is a possibility.

you would have thought they would send something to confirm, but if they are doing the first two free for those who pre-signed up you may find the letter comes with issues 1 & 2.

would have thought an email or something though, unless they figure as long as they confirm, or more likely give you the chance to opt out, ahead of actually taking cash its fine.

likely to upgrade to premium on this, looking forward to a decent size pic of whats included

last time was 1&2 on their own, then 3-6 together.

not massively fussed either way to be honest, just a slight itch to get going, having started a "Soul Wars" set of nighthaunt they are actually fun to paint, and for the first time going pretty much with a recommended GW scheme for both sides

But thinking on it, won’t that mean that 79 and 80 will come alone also.
Seems odd that they’d make an extra delivery when it’s already divisible by 4 at 80 issues..

seems to fit with Conquest though, of the final six four are the tank thing the final two are a bit of terrain so coming as a block of four then the final two together makes sense

It's supposed to be coming out on the 8th, isn't it? I've seen ttis available to pre-order on the Forbidden Planet site for that date, but i'm hoping to just go down to WHSmith and get one on the day. Has there been anything to confirm if it'll be available then?

I've seen a few mentions of Issue 1 having been available a few months back, why would they have done that?

Part of me hopes they wait until Conquest is finished before releasing this in Oz.

I'd love to subscribe to this one too, but paying for a subscription to both isn't ideal. We're about halfway through Conquest at the moment, so here's hoping they wait another few months before bringing Mortal Realms here.

Dublin specific but Easons in the Square Tallaght have them out now so I assume other easons have them as well €4.40 as they are converting from the Sterling price.

Picked up 3 copies to bring my Chainrasps up to 60 bargain at €13.20 plus some ETB Sequitors that may be used as statues on some terrain piece or other.

Hmm. I subscribed back in August last year and received the letter about the trial ending etc, but I also don't see any active subscriptions when I log into the Hachette site.

Also, I see actual www.warhammermortalrealms.com site is even more of a placeholder than it was was last year, with no links or buttons to actually start a subscription.

Just got an email from Forbidden planet saying the backing is going to be "folded in half for ease of shipping" which is just absurd, damaging customers items because its easier for them to get in a box. Yes, it's carboard backing, but that's not the point...it's still a part of the product and postage is being charged anyway.

nice to have a better pic of the contents

also had the note about the backing being folded, given for Conquest! the actual subscriptions ones were also folded and its going in the bin anyway I can live with it.

given I've got six copies on order, plus the actual subscription (which like others has vanished from the Hachette site) if I want one one is probably going to be decent

The issue was that due to the size they had to ship issue 1 of Conquest in a massive box by an expensive delivery firm so I can fully understand the change. Hachette didn’t even try and ship the backing board for issue 1 for the same reason.

Just got an email from Forbidden planet saying the backing is going to be "folded in half for ease of shipping" which is just absurd, damaging customers items because its easier for them to get in a box. Yes, it's carboard backing, but that's not the point...it's still a part of the product and postage is being charged anyway.

I thought the email was nice and it makes sense. The sprues and magazine won't be bent, and they sent the email so if you weren't happy with this you could cancel it, before they charge you. If it's this much of an issue, you'd have been better cancelling it when you got the email then buy it in store (albeit with the risk that the cardboard back will then be dogeared/bent from the shelf).

Has anyone done a breakdown of the respective rrp of the contents of a full subscription to this yet?

Now that the premium one is £2 an issue rather than £1.50 like Conquest the full rrp of the premium collection is around £300 for a cost of £160 to the subscriber. That is with putting no monetary value on the paints or the 32 page booklet things with each premium delivery.

If this follows the Spanish model the premium subs will be with deliveries 7/11/15 and 20, but take that with some salt.

For some reason it seems that the release date for Issue 1 from Forbidden Planet now says its out on the 22nd January, even though they were available in shops today.

Warhammer Stores are stocking them. I suspect it’ll just be the first four issues, as it was with Comquest.

Aye, the Coventry store has them in today. Just hope that my place of work has them in stock today as a 20% discount on the cover price would be sweet for all those Chainrasps.

Post by: leopard


local co-op had them in, six copies on the shelf, bought two as would be a bit greedy to get the lot.

also have six more on order from Forbidden planet but there you go

email went in the spam folder but found it, says to leave it for 72 hours before trying to register on the website so umm, yeah, joined up systems there, same with Conquest

magazine is slightly different to Conquests first one, largely because there is no paint in the issue so the paint section is just blurb. the first board is A4 sized, but given the scenario is basically "you are already in combat so pile in!" it works well enough. at this point the 'rules' are more about how to measure to move and how to roll dice, the actual mechanics are not really like the game.

here you have a 'to hit' roll, and hits auto kill, 3+ for the golden boys, 4+ for the baddies, goodies strike first so its really down to luck.

guessing some of the feedback from Conquest was the inability to actually play a game until you had the first two issues, so now you can get cracking from day one.

despite Forbidden Planet saying the dice are 6mm they are normal dice, guessing 12mm, plain white, black dots, perfectly serviceable.

fluff bits are not bad, and I assume will build up to be pretty decent, your mileage may vary on how useful it is, build instructions are the sort of thing you get in a box with a few more words to guide so good for a new starter.

to be honest even if you don't play AoS or care about the armies its not a bad way to get a few models to test new paints or glues on

They're certainly blitzing it on the advert. Seen it 4 times in the last hour and a half.

Also a local smiths had them in. Big double sided pos. I was going to skip the first issue, but i might just go and get a couple anyway. I'm sure i can find a use the wrasps in one form or another.

I can see why the card backing is being folded by forbidden planet, it's crazy big even for a partworks

Premium looks ideal for youth clubs etc. You get quite a range of stuff, and a decent amount of it.

Premium is interesting, none of them are really what you would call an army, more teasers you will end up buying more stuff to use beyond any small or simple scenarios.

still likely getting them because I'm addicted to plastic it seems

card backing is nuts, its actually two layers stuck (badly) together, if they were going to do that they could have printed the game board on the inside then they become actually well worth having

And all is there.

Am on the fence about this, would love a Nighthaunt army but not really bothered by Stormcasts.

@Orlandoetc: They were very bullish with Conquest adverts for the initial issue(s) of that. Makes sense to perhaps pique the interest of those not in the GW/wargaming bubble.

Thanks to Conquest, I bought the Space Marine Heroes Series 3 Death Guard, the GW exclusive Plague Marines, a Start Collecting Nurgle Daemons Box and now take too long to walk past the Mortarion and Great Unclean One models on the shelves due to temptation.

They, unfortunately, know what they're doing with the drip feeding.

I had to phone them to add the premium, the customer support number is on the partworks promo website, less than 5 minutes all done. no idea if it is applied mind, but the new customer service is a lot better than the old one.

I totally echo that statement. I could build another Stormcast Chamber and start a new underd army. And more terrain is always welcome.

I am sure that GW is tracking interest in the US...it is simply a matter of logistics and price. I would expect the normal issues to be between $10-12 here, but since I have NO experience in periodical distribution, I don't know how US postage rates would affect their pricing.

Still, if they bring Conquest and Mortal Realms to the US, I'm in for each.

Thing is, it's Hachette Partworks that's distributing it and creating the accompanying magazine , which means it's not about GW logistics but who they can licence it to.

Only way it will work is if they can work out distribution in the US for the US. And whether GW would commit to that much more plastic going out their doors given the smaller US store network to back it up.

The Warhammer: Coventry store had a fair few of these this afternoon. At least 25 copies on the shelf, and who knows how many more in the back?

If anything it just shows the ridiculous rrp of the chainrasp box that they bought out a while ago at £25 for 10. With Mortal Realms you can spend £24 for 80 chainrasps with 24 Sequitors and untold dice and other bits. Mental.

Indeed.

Even when the collection is complete, it’s a significant RRP saving, just eye balling the contents.

Only downside to me is the lack of the ‘HOW MUCH!’ Black Coach :p

Swung by the Smiths and they had a good few copies on the shelf and the woman behind the counter commented on how "Oh everyone's been buying them in pairs" which suggests they'd likely sold a good few by the time I'd got there. She even mentioned the Conquest magazine as well in passing so clearly these magazines do sell well even in a town where the local toy shop recently stopped selling warhammer due to lack of demand (though I should note I've no idea of the overall health of the playing crowd in the town and it could be that it was simple online prices; or even the high volume of varied things to stock that stopped them or reduced profits for them).




I picked up a pair of issues, mostly to have some "waste" models to paint up. The magazine content I think could be done better honestly. It's exceptionally "light" material. Though as they are basically designed to be sold in packs of four that might ease up once you're into the regular system and getting four issues a month in a block.
Though I did find it odd that they had a "painting your models" page that was mostly just saying "you can paint these you know". Again likely hindered by the fact that the paints and brush are a good few issues away. Then again partworks that need a few issues before you can really get going is fairly normal for building things.



Overall savings are great, but I can't see myself getting more than these two issues. A few more dice, some models and a small map are nice but in the end I still swing round to the whole "I don't need another two armies!" aspect. Plus I'd rather pick up terrain as Warcry packs with the terrain cards and boards.

None in my local co-ops or Tesco, so I'm going to the huge Tesco in the next town tomorrow to see if they have any (and if they don't, to asda and whsmiths incase they do). So idk if they'd sold out or if it's only for the bigger stores.

In this corner of the world, I seems (or so I perceive) this first issue is more widely and massively available than its W40k equivalent last year. You can find them everywhere! Scalpers stocking massive amounts too, as can be seen on local craigslist-type of apps. There was this picture with 50 issues piled up lol.

I picked up two. Poster boys could be converted into cool looking SM, if anything, and the spookies will make great Spirit Hosts/Wraiths for Vampire Counts. For 4 euros, that's a great deal. I was actually shocked to learn that single little sprue is sold for 32,5 eur otherwise

Same here, I just added the subscription from the number in the email. I seem to remember doing the same last time.

I have entered my direct debit details but it still hasn't registered yet and is still saying 'click here to pay by direct debit'. Again, I seem to remember it takes a while before the direct debit is 'locked' in place on the Hachette account page.

Takes them something like 24 to 48 hours to update anything related to what is show on the subscription screen.

Now I have to decide whether it is worth biting the bullet to get a full set of Chainrasps or wait and hope this comes to Canada, presumably at least two years from now.

This is really disappointing. I've been talking this up to a lot of people locally, and had planned on building up my Nighthaunt affordably.

That would still be significantly cheaper. I figure I'd give someone £35 for 4 of them which should cover the magazines, shipping, and some extra for actually doing it for me. It would cost the same as 1 box of Chainrasps, but I'd get 4 (and some SCE and dice too!). Totes worth it.

called them today to upgrade to premium, the new customer service line is a hell of a lot better and I could actually hear them. was told to wait until I have the first two and upgrade then or it will muck up the 'free issues' bit.

apparently I do have a Direct Debit set up, regardless of what their website says, as others have noted its not exactly up to speed most of the time.

Its got serious at Leopard Towers though, Mrs L. has nicked one of my shop bought copies and started building & painting (Pink Nighthaunts anyone? they actually look half decent) and I got home today to find shes subscribed to it as well, has a bit of a thing for ghosts

Forbidden planet have posted three of the six I ordered, have been told the others are on back order until probably the 20th which sounds like this first issue is shifting

have 9 here, with the subscription one when they all arrive, plus 20 rasps already, its an amazing 1st issue, slightly surprised it wasn't one of the nighthaunt ETB sets you would perhaps have a few of but not a silly number like the rasps

From experience, the magazine itself usually adds the most weight! So if you’re just after the models, might help keep post weight down.

Weight and volume on that 1st issue are enormous! I bought six copies from Forbidden Planet and they needed a large box just to ship those in -- about 12" x 12" x 18". There would have been no room to fit anything else in there -- maybe one more magazine? The huge cardboard backing was the main issue. They would need to curve or fold it to avoid having to send in an even wider box...

Not sure how far into this subscription I will go yet, but a little warband at least would be good..

I’ve been told by customer service that the premium boxes are released with issues 15, 30, 50, and 70.


Cheers for the heads up.

So that is deliveries 4, 8, 13 and 18? Assuming they come in groups of 4 (like Conquest) and you subscribe from issue 1. May be tempted to go Premium and cancel it once the Sylvaneth arrive.

Deliveries 5, 8, 13, 18 it’d be.

I don’t think I’ll make it that far. I did Conquest up to 26 as that was 7 deliveries for the free gifts. But I play Death Guard already so it was easy enough to justify.
What would the price be on just grabbing those sylvaneth bits from a discounter, I’ll have to work it out, I get 25% off there.

Also though, if you cancel before issue 20, you pay the difference to make it up for premium, so it’s basically £40 for it.

For the UK guys, check local spar and one stop shops.

I dropped into my local GW hoping to grab more and got told it’s 1 per customer.
Not sure if this is UK wide or just as per your local GW deems fit.

Either way, between a local spar and 2 one stop shops I managed to snag 9 more copies so that’s me done for now.
I live in a fairly built up area too, so people who live in quieter areas may have more luck.

I can buy 2 issues I think, but the postage from Spain is expensive. 18 euros and change with a company I know nothing of, 21 with the USPS equivalent. Maybe the brits have it cheaper?

Ugh, I saw the spawn issue of Conquest. Looks like it comes out next week. THAT’S the one I want!! 3-4 copies, honestly.

Im in for 4 copies lol, as that should build all possible variants iirc

My Mortal Realms sub number is finally active on Hachettes website, does anyone know when the 1st batch of sub issues go out?

In terms of issues, I spy my Lootin’ Eye issue 5

Pretty sure scalpers will try to have a field day with that one.



Especially when it is available to order from Forbidden Planet right now for £7.49 plus P&P.

https://forbiddenplanet.com/290826-warhammer-age-of-sigmar-mortal-realms-5/

No idea if they will post international but the model is there for the taking.


Beat the scalpers!



For Slovenia, and probably most of Eastern Europe, Forbidden Planet ships at 8 GBP for 1 or 2 issues, then jumps to 28 GBP at 3 issues for some reason. So the optimal rate is 4 GBP per issue if you get 2 at a a time.

And they're out of Issue 1 OFC.

If someone in the UK could grab 4-8 of them for me I'd be ever so grateful.

I can’t find any issue 1 anywhere still. Nothing in Smith’s down in Suffolk.

This was a two week run? So this Wednesday is still just more 1?
Maybe they’ll get more in to put out then..

If you ask in WH Smiths they should be able to find it on their system (and order it in for you), it's certainly there now

and yes wed will be the start of the second week, but not sure if that will mean more stock coming in (unless it's been ordered specifically as extra)

How much would 2 issues be shipped to the us?


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2020/01/13 22:08:13


Post by: Danny76


Here’s a question that nobody might know the answer to.

Those of us who did the early sub, I believe we were offered issues 1-2 for being ‘loyal subbers’ as it were.

The magazine said that new subscribers, they will be offered issue 3 free if they sub.

Are we in thinking that we will be given that also, so delivery one (1-2) is free, and delivery 2 (3-6) is £24.
Thoughts?


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2020/01/13 22:26:16


Post by: ListenToMeWarriors


That was certainly the case with Conquest, my first delivery was £0 and the second £23.97.

Spoiler:


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2020/01/13 22:35:11


Post by: Danny76


Yeah I do seem to remember that being the case, though I also thought that in my original emails from said 1-3 are free, where as this time they only said 1-2 (the 3 could be assumed though..)


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2020/01/13 22:40:22


Post by: ListenToMeWarriors


I suppose from Hachette's POV it is £2.99 +5.99 (£8.98 for issues 1 and 2) of issues free for early adopters Vs £7.99 (for issue 3) for normal subscribers. Cannot complain either way. If we were to get issue 3 "free" as well that is just a massive bonus.


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2020/01/13 22:40:23


Post by: phillv85


3 was a bonus freebie for people who signed up when they first announced it on conquest.

Local store restocked them this morning having been sold out since the weekend ( they had left a blank space for them) so “week 2” stock seems to be going out now.

Got some cheap spawn from this weeks Conquest mag.

That seems to be the case over here as well. Was at a Tesco today and they had more copies of issue 1. It was on a standard A4 sized cardboard backing rather than the oversized one the original issues had.

Would love some cheap chain rasps, spawn and terrain.

Suppose I’ll scout eBay UK - I’m guessing some affordable sets should show up there soon?

If it like Conquest they usually come when the last issue of the block releases. So next week on issue 2’s date

For anyone that was an early subscriber, but never got the second email with the account code, you may want to give Hatchette a call. Turns out that despite getting the "thanks for subscribing, we'll get back to you in 3 days" email, nothing was registered on the system...

Does anyone know when this will be available in Australia?


Warhammer Mortal Realms - AoS Partwork @ 2020/01/17 01:13:35


Post by: Mad Doc Grotsnik


Not a clue.

But, we might be able to use Conquest as an example?

UK is on Issue 72. If you can figure out which issue Australia is on, it might serve as a ballpark indication?


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Warhammer Community confirmed the Australia release 18 March 2019, saying it’d be in stores ‘soon’.

Very rough estimate? 33 weeks behind the UK, allowing for three weeks between announcement and availability

I’m not seeing a bunch of cheap Spawn on eBay UK yet.

So it should be Mortal Realms Issue 2 in stores tomorrow.
That should mean the first delivery is then too if it’s just the first two in it.
Unless they switch to 1-4, any movement on people’s Hachette account?

There's a payment line of £0 on mine that I saw yesterday, presumably relates to the free issues given to early subscribers. Not sure if that means a delivery is imminent or not though.

I haven’t even got that yet, just the blank space.
With Conquest it did always mean incoming.

Website still says 1-2 and modelling kit (who doesn’t need more plastic glue so that’s fine. ML tool and clippers less so now..) are the first delivery, so yeah should be tomorrow.

Popped in to the local WH Smiths in Bury St Edmunds and snagged a copy! And its awesome! Yes!

Bit late, but if Christmas could be condensed into £3 then its definitely this. Both factions tickle my fancy too! Hurrah!
