I got my new WD today, and altogether I was really impressed, certanly it has nothing to do with the fact that I am really looking forward to the Eldar..

10 Pages of new Eldar Models, including rerealeases of the Falcon and the Viper with a Wave Serpent Weapon Sprue so now they come with all the Heavy Weapon options (but still no S. Cannon upgrade for either)

2 Pages of WHFB Goblins Realeases

Black Library and Forgeworld Manta Pictures

2 Page prewiew of the comming Empire Book (similar to what they did with the Eldar with Preview Pages)

Standard News

12 Pages of Eldar Designer Notes, evedentially the goal of the codex was to have a combined arms force where the eldar units support each other. This is why Wraithlords got Wraithsight as they didn't want any "solo" Wraithlords running around..

16 Page 2000 point Eldar versus Black Templar Battle Report. Expect the same with each new army Batrep.

3 Pages about those crazy "collectors" items that GW pushes out "because we know you can't live without them"

6 Pages of WHFB Gobbo goodness, with each bit of the new kit shown.

13 Page LOTR Batrep.

4 Pages of WHFB Army Selection Tactica

8 pages of Aspect Warrior Goodness, plus a full bit shown of the new plastic DA

5 Pages of LOTR calvery

4 Pages of Dark Elf painting

16 Pages of Chicago Golden Deamons

4 Pages for a WHFB orc Scenario

8 Pages of WHFB Battalion Box Set battles

4 Pages of 40k Ork Painting and converting goodness

6 Pages of building your 40k vehicles in a modular fashion to indicate in-game damage

Bitz and Pieces

 

Overall a vast improvement over last issue as far as 40k in concerned, WHFB fans will feel a little left out. 


Current Armies: Blood Angels, Imperial Guard (40k), Skorne, Retribution (Warmachine), Vampire Counts (Fantasy)

$3 each, and it is actually made to mount in the exact same spot as the twin-linked catapults.  It's from the old Shrieker Jetbike box.  It's metal, so it does tend to unbalance the vehicle (especially Vypers), and you need to counterbalance it or mount the model solidly on the flying base so it doesn't pitch forward too much.

But then who will buy the terribly expensive Forgeworld vehicle upgrade kits!?

"The last known instance of common sense happened at a GT. A player tried to use the 'common sense' argument vs. Mauleed to justify his turbo-boosted bikes getting a saving throw vs. Psycannons. The player's resulting psychic death scream erased common sense from the minds of 40k players everywhere. " - Ozymandias

Thanks for the review, Mahu.  I think this one will find its way into my WD collection.  I always like seeing the GD entries and the Designer Notes issues are my favorite ones as a rule.

It also appears that the amount of LOTR content has dropped, though that is one long batrep in there.

Thanks again.

So are they toning down their advertisements?

The only way that will happen is if the actually include something of substance, like kill team scenarios, rules tweaks, etc.

as it stands now, until that happens that all it will ever be is one huge ad, even more so than it used to be.

The Tomb King general in the Batallion Battles article is a Pharon mini, if I'm not mistaken.

Another pretty weak issue, IMO. The Eastern Tomb King mini that won in Chicago is super, though.
