No. There are no white dwarf weekly issues in August. 131 is the last. It is this gap that makes me believe the new WD is looking back.


thats quite odd for a monthly mag. normally you get Septembers issue in aug, etc

They may yet call issue 1 the October issue, but it comes out on September 2 and will probably cover the August releases including Deathwatch, Kharn etc. I am expecting to see a teaser on the 40k Facebook page on Monday, either for Deathwatch or the next campaign book.

This is what my local GW-guy said : New WD will cover the releases of the last month i.e. : september WD covers august releases.

I think they will move the "new release" stuff to online media, maybe add a small section on whats to come in the WD - as in " pre-order now and get it in 1/2/3 weeks in our shop".

I think the mag will cover the releases for the last half of the previous month and the first half of the coming month that way theres only a 2week wait and they only have to do one online release announcement each month

Which is very stupid for a magazine to do I mean the old WD had upcoming stuff. Unless it has decent hobby content it is going to fail.

Well hopefully they will limit the new product ads to minimum. That's not much of interesting in long term unlike hobby content. I still find use for hobby content pages from WD's of 90's. New kit ads don't hold up that well.

In days of internet magazines aren't that good place of putting in product ads anyway. So hopefully less of that, more of hobby content. One can hope!

(still waiting with anticipiation when news comes on just WHERE one can buy the new WD. Hopefully in same places I could buy WD before it went weekly)

While ads for new kits don't interest me much after the initial publication date (and even then, depends on the kit) I always love reading designer notes. I really hope they leverage that and we get to hear more about the decisions that went into making any given minis.

New post on The Regimental Standard





Opportunity Beckons! Become a Sergeant
by The Warhammer Community Team


Attention troopers,

Due to increased enemy activity along our patrol routes, and what can only be described as a series of unfortunate incidents, there are now unparalleled opportunities for advancement. At this time, fully one hundred squads are operating without a Sergeant. These hard-to-come-by* positions could be filled by you!

As a Sergeant you will not only receive the respect** of your men, but you will also benefit from better pay, higher quality rations and access to a spare uniform***.

Such is the current need to fill these positions that we are waiving the normal Sergeant’s exam. Instead, promotion will be allocated on a first come basis. If you think you have what it takes to become a Sergeant and lead a squad into battle, report to muster ground XIV at first light.

Please read the below in preparation:

1
As you are no doubt aware, Sergeant rank is denoted by three nested chevrons. This is no coincidence. Battle doctrine dictates that there are three important rules when charged with the role of Squad Sergeant:
1.Your Sergeant’s patch must be sewn onto your left sleeve. It should be positioned away from any webbing or wargear attachments in order that the enemy can clearly see it and fear you.
2.You must at all times be able to locate, and manoeuvre to, the middle of your squad. It is impossible to mount a successful operation from any other position.
3.Lastly, and most importantly, you must be able to wield a chainsword. Indeed it is impossible to effectively lead a squad without one. Chainswords are more than just weapons****. They are totems of your Emperor-granted authority. Use them to direct your squad’s fire, order an advance, and signal victory with a glorious thrust into the air (see bulletin #723-89A for advice on heroic poses)2



Glory awaits. May the Emperor guide you.

Thought for the day:
“The courageous shall forever walk in the Emperor’s light.”





*Generally speaking, squads that lose their Sergeant die in the confusion of battle due to lack of leadership, removing the need for a replacement

**Doubtful

***Incorrect at time of publication

****While your chainsword can also be used as a weapon, this is of secondary importance. The spinning, barbed teeth will throw blood and viscera all over your uniform, obscuring your Sergeant’s patch. If you must engage the enemy with your chainsword (ie, if you have failed in your duty to annihilate them at range), you may be well advised to use it as a sturdy club instead. Any damage to the weapon will be taken from your pay.

Exactly. I hope that besides hobby content, fluff and rules there'll be meaty sections about the mini design process like in the old days, talking about moulding, milling steel moulds, coming up with ideas, etc. They don'T have to do it for everthing, but that's a nice way to plug one or two kits a month. Doesn't even have to be new stuff! Not a few lines about "I gave them weapon X beacause Y", but "Nurgle has three motifs: the fallen knight, the leper and the demon; to represent this, we did YXZ" mixed with tech, techniques and maybe a few concept sketches and maybe even *gasp* rejected designs.

Looking for a Skaven Doomwheel banner to repair my Nurgle knights.

It won't be. Based on rumors, the boxed set will HH Thousand Sons, complete with Ahriman in plastic. Thousand Sons had a unique mark based off of Mk IV, so expect reissues of the Mk IV with an upgrade kit of some sort. The logical other army would be Space Wolves, who wore all sorts of marks.

Well, considering that the person providing the rumors, Sad Panda, has a 100% correct rating, whereas BoLS is almost universally regarded as 100% Pants-On-Fire Liars, I know which one I am inclined to believe.

It'll probably be mk4 marines, a librarian character, a melee character, and two new special units. Maybe Tartaros and boarding marines, and another contemptor?

Though, if they included boarding marines as mk4 rather than mk3, that'd be silly. Especially since mk2/3 were practically made for boarding marines.

That was unexpected.


... just to be 100% clear you're saying that plastic Sisters of Silence and Custodes will be in the next HH board game and not talking about FW producing resin ones to coincide with the release of Inferno, right?

EDIT: Good to know it'll be MKIII and not more MKIV, though I must admit I was hoping for MKII myself (with MKIII being in a Battle of Phall box).

If the box contents are similar to Calth, does this mean Wolves may see something like 10 Mk III marines, then a unit of 5 sisters and 2-5 custodes to replace the terminators, and a PA leader? Sorcerer/librarian would be almost a given for Thousand sons, and 10-20 troops (either more mk III or even maybe a unit of 10 Mk III and 10 mk IV to make 2 different unit types) but then what would take the place of the contemptor?

If I may ask, would you happen to know how close the sisters of silence are to the sisters of battle, model wise? Also, thank you again for all of your magnificent work. You are a blessing to this community!
