If you did collect SM and DG models then chances are you would already have a full army and wouldn't need to collect Conquest, so not collecting those armies previously means the magazine is perfect for you

It's going to be interesting to see where they take this and if they can get to the originally quoted number of issues (was it 80?)

Issue 5 is supposed to come with a Primaris LT. Presumably 6 will be a DG equivalent.

Definitely an idea with the Primaris to do a new Kill Team Chapter Of marines.

Originally I was just thinking of painting up a marine from every chapter I’ve always thought of doing.

Just for everyone too lazy to looks at the website they put up a picture of the complete collection you'll have at the end:



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)?

They have added details of the premium upgrade as well now, it’s more game related components and boards rather than models or scenery.

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.

One sprue per week for the hover tank?

BGiME used to spread cavalry over two issues. Horses one week, riders the next.

I'll quite happily take the Primaris Apothecary for less than GW retail.

Some of the 'free gifts' have changed as well. Brush set instead of an art book for example.

I don't know if you can order it like that from the website as they take payments monthly the ship 4 at once. I presume you'll be able to pick these up in book stores or wherever people usually get these subscription mags though right?

So...I pay £1.50 extra per issue in order to get some undefined non-model related reward from Issues 15-18? Meaning I'm actually paying about £25 for it? That's terribly vague and potentially ill-priced.

You can order single issues from one of the Forbidden Planet brands and they ship internationally.

The forbiddenplanet.com company have the issues rather than the alternate .co.uk company.

Certainly can!

Allows for me to order back issues. But I’d expect the best value (£22.50 Chaplain for £8) to sell out quickly?

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’m wondering if the Plaguemortar and other substantial kits will be released over consecutive weeks, or more spaced out?

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

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.

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.

My Blogs -
Hobby Blog - Currently lots of stuff
Terrain - Currently Middle Earth ruins.

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.
