Aye think Aeneades is on the money here, we cannot say that we did not have fair prior warning. I am currently on the fence about the artbook but will make my mind up in the coming week.

Personally my deliveries have been coming every four weeks like clockwork and I am very happy with how it is going for me, as with anything like this your mileage may vary.

from the size so far guessing we will end up with at least four binders in total for this, makes sense with the four sections

Yeah it was a long and fair warning, most people just didn’t read too much in depth (and to be fair, in here we had discussed it quite a bit about what we thought would be on them early in the thread).

I’m unsure if I’ll take it yet, but I think it will probably be good value.
(I believe these won’t be purchasable as individual issues? For subscribers only? You with other publications from them can let me know )

They haven't made the 2000AD special issues available on the website so assume they wont for this one either.

Well, I'll probably get the art book - I'm a sucker for a nice hardback full of cool art and Christmas money will pay for it...

Also, with the new double sided play mat, the side with extra details shows positions for the placement of three new terrain sets - STC Ryza pattern ruins, Thermic Plasma Conduits and Battlefield accessories.

Aye, the inside rear cover of issue 18 declares "from issue 21 the battle goes planetside Korvon II, new battle may, new terrain, new missions" and shows all of those terrain pieces physically on the mat. We know the battlefield accessories are coming in issue 23 so we can assume that the other terrain will come shortly after that.

Just unrolled the subscriber poster.

‘Appen there’s a Chapter of Primaris that’s been removed from records.

Wiped out, or gone to the bad?

Does it say why removed? I didn’t think wiped out ones normally are..
So perhaps something untoward..

Removed are are the records still in the post? you know how it goes this time of year?

perhaps they were left 'next door' with that nice Mr Khorne who was only to happy to sign for them?


wittering aside it would have made more sense to note a chapter as being 'lost' in the warp, with no records as to livery etc as they were on their way to found a new outpost or something - point obviously being whatever you paint can be one of these, a bit like the original lost two.

personally think "lost in the post" would be a nice hat tip to the first edition background as well

Wonder if the scale of this has taken them by surprise, or if as many companies they actually are that inept.

given GW for all their many faults have and pretty much always have had excellent customer its something it may be worth writing to GW about, as constructive criticism of something putting a tarnish on something otherwise very well done

As a counter point and not as a denial that Hachette have let some down, my subscriber deliveries have arrived like clockwork with no problems.

WhenI ordered an additional Calsius issue, I received a copy of Issue 06 in error. I raised a query Via PayPal and received the correct issue within three days by signed for post.

Long may that continue.

They do seem to be a bit patchy in terms of service.

I’ve not had a problem myself, but there’s enough peeps getting it late that they need to tidy it up a bit.

The issues are received based upon when you signed up, so if someone signs up a month after launch and starts with issue 1 then they will always be a month behind, I think this is what has caused a lot of the confusion and complaints from some people but the only other option would be to charge them for the back issues upfront which not go down well.

A good theory, except I signed up last March when this was originally going to happen, and re-confirmed in the Summer before the 1st issue was released...

I would suggest they are overloaded and don't have much in the way of organisational skills, their comms are particularly bad. However, if they are going to send me lots of plastic crack at a huge discount I'm not going to get too grumpy...

For some people it’s that. For others they just do them in an order, some later than others I suppose.

I’m guessing everyone still gets them in 4 week/monthly roughly deliveries? Just some get them and spoil the surprise for others who get it later (for those that don’t want to know).
-or are some people getting one on time, and then others weeks after the next should, like 6 week gaps between or something..?

It didn’t flow at first since we weren’t getting terrain, but for anyone subscribing since the start..

It is now one Space Marine, one Death Guard, one Terrain, and one paint/brush set per delivery set of four.

(11-14, 15-18, 19-22 so far fit the pattern, which I thought it would have done so makes sense)

Probably old news by now, but I've just noticed there's artwork in issue 8 that appears to depict a Khornate Primaris marine.

Just looked, and I can't see a Khornate primaris in issue 8. There is a snippet of this artwork in there, but I'm pretty sure they're just regular chaos marines.

I could be quite wrong, but I could bet a pint or two that that this chappy here represents a standardised Chaos Primaris equivalent. His proportions, imho, are sleeker than the more standard CSMs, like the more familiar, chunkier fellas around him, and the details of his visor (the brow, the muzzle vents, the tubing, the "ears") correspond more closely to the Primaris visors than anything else, with a cleft to distinguish it from their vanilla cousins.

Could be wrong, like I say, but we'll see.

You will get three more binders, each at £8ish.
You will automatically get these, but like the special issues, may choose to opt out if you’d like.

I would imagine the first of these will be coming just after 20 issues.

I’d say no more than Death Guard and Thousand Sons.
Artwork and fluff wise, Chaos Marines are a bit more depicted in line anyway. (If we went by model for artwork it’d be terrible )

So the new models will be bigger yeah, but I don’t think it’ll be a new Primaris type thing, rather just a bit of scale creep.

This may be an odd question, do we have a colour that matches the sprues for the scenery plastic colour?

I'm thinking of just spraying them all in mat varnish, wash and dry brush and a few details added to give it a very quick paint scheme. If I can get a colour to base coat other, none conquest, scenery I can have them all start with the same base and they'll match a little better.

It's Rhinox Hide, isn't it?

I would think that spraying them a base colour rather than matte varnish to begin with would be no more effort and look better (your entire scenery collection won't be brown, for one thing ).

Right behind you.

It's a bit darker than Rhinox Hide, assuming the scenery is the same color as what I got with the Scions KT set.

Indeed, and then help further layers adhere better too.

I’d have to check but I didn’t think it was Rhinox

He has old style backpack, no gorget, standard 'split' style Mk 4 helmet, grill in breastplate like CSM kit, CSM style pads, sorry, just don't see it...

Primed mine using Valijio red oxide primer and while not a perfect match it was pretty damned close, works ok for chipping effects as a base as well, dead easy to apply by airbrush.

its more brown than rattle can red oxide primers
