I'll have to say that the books are well worth it from a collectors point.

The art book is mostly stuff we have seen, but it fully credits each artist and year so it gets a big plus from me on that alone. With so much art cropped, grayscaled etc. It's nice to see them in full colour as is.

The silver Templar book is great. Lots of lore, background, and lots of painted models to copy if you wanted. Contains a short story. Honestly the quality and substance is there you could add a two page rules/relics like from index Astartes in awD and you'd have a solid mini Codex.

Great! As it mentions a survey this may be a test run initially, hopefully not too long until full launch. Surprised they went with a 10 model unit (and an additional 3 model unit) for the £2.99 issue although no paints with first issue this time around and being given out much slower. I am surprised they didn’t go with Contrast.

I don’t think Premium appeared as an option during the trial as those who had already signed up during trial had to email them to upgrade to premium which is one of reasons I suspect this is a trial.

It did not.
The full release is where everything was added.
There was a survey between too, where questions like that were added..

I did wonder about Contrast, but I guess for that to be worthwhile you need a spray undercoat. Doing Wraithbone on everything by hand, then doing Contrast over that doesn’t save much time. And the focus on younger players means sprays may not be an option.

I’d wonder if this was written back when Conquest was.
So will be very similar and lots of copy paste.

We don’t know how far before Contrast, or whether they would know about it, etc..

There is also the want for sales from GW.
Contrast is their new shiny paint range, they don’t want them thrown in magazines. That’s for the mass produced to this point regulars, which are just sat about everywhere.
That’s like those who thought Contrast would get added into Conquest, just unlikely.

It is the same as when a few people say, oh maybe when sisters release, a themed box will come out, vs Orks or whoever.
I’d be so surprised if that every happened. As when something new comes (particularly a whole army line), they was to sell full price kits, not bundle the, in a deal. Same reason no SC for ages after a release..

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.


Whoops. Wrong thread!

While I love getting cheap models, I think taking on 2 new AOS armies is beyond my reach. I'll have to turn this one down, although I am tempted to add to the pile of unopened 40k mags I have

Trial copies of issue 1 have apparently been spotted in shops in the north east of England (the usual trial area for any new products). I wouldn’t expect them to be seen anywhere else except maybe Scotland.

Yeah the survey is just for those who have gotten the trial issues.
Click yes and there are a wonder of questions

Now available in France.

Get them while you can. The Rhino and Plagueburst Crawler issues are an absolute bargain.

Is there a France based version of Forbidden Planet that will ship to the UK?

The land speeder one is pretty good as well.

I know most people here probably don't need to read the painting guides, but they're quite good and have a lot of decent tips for beginner and intermediate painters re highlights and such, down to which part of the brush tip to use for which area job and why. I presume they had to be purpose written given how specific they are to figures, paints and tools somebody would have at each point in the subscription.

For a newbie it would be really useful stuff, because they do gently explain the underlying visual concepts (eg "this grey is for highlighting hard black metal, this one is for soft black cloth" or "we'll be using this red crescent to give the impression of a glass lens, we'll come back later to highlight")

I just mention it because one of the ones I just received has a pretty detailed guide to using Astrogranite and washes to base as swamp, mud, or cityscape, and another explained why drybrushing would be used for one piece of terrain while manually painting touches on another. Nice touch.

What’s the source of the objectives in issue 64?

64 is Astrogranite so did you mean the objectives from 61? They are from the Urban Conquest box and a believe a change to the contents shown on the poster which were the regular objectives set.

Edit: just checked original leaks and 61 was meant to be the big servo crane which looks to have been dropped. 71 was meant to include the original objectives so will have to see what appears there.

I was tempted towards Urban Conquest by those objectives. So glad I didn't.

That's my additional orders to my sub copies gone into Forbidden Planet.

Lots of painting and building to get into when I'm home in December.
