Where do I have to go on the GW site to order the subscriber model from last year? I assumed it would just be sent out automatically.

I assume they don't just ship them automatically in case people have changed address in the last 12 months.

that's actually fair reason for why they didn't automatically ship. I had been wondering as I thought they initially said they ship automatically.

Guess they could send email to please update default address some time before sending but automation has all sorts of issues. Maybe person is unavailable to respond in time for example.

I'll give benefit of doubt on that one that it's GW actually thinking about it

They could really do with doing some work on the vault, in its current state it’s border line unusable, long loading times without a save your spot feature accompanied by the pages refreshing if you ever click off them.

Ideally they would have an app similar to kindle where you can download the book you are interested in, and read throw it at your leisure.

Yeah just being able to filter it by game system or universe or filter out all the old white dwarves etc would be a good start.

We know what they'll do. The content just won't get shown, or more likely, we'll never see those White Dwarfs on W+.

I for one would love to see all the older articles I enjoyed back in the print day, eg Traveller RPG adventures, extras for other RPGs that are now well out of print, how to make terrain articles etc. WD used to be such a good magazine before it was a paid advert.

Have you read it recently? It's not really a paid advert any more. They don't cover the new releases at all. I think it's a pretty good magazine these days, not worth the price they charge for it now but as part of Warhammer+ it's solid.

It’s for sure chaos.

And 99% based ok that art with the silhouette being an almost exact match.

Have to say gw has very curious paid advert strategy advertising long time ago releases.

Usually paid ad's are for new releases. Guess gw messed up eh?

I think there’s confusion here. The stack of three images do not all show the one thing.

The Salamander bit is from an upcoming animation. And it’s doesn’t relate to the next two images, which I think we’re all confident are a Chaos Terminator modelled after a piece of classic artwork.

Anyone who thinks that termi silhouette is Salamanders is gonna be really disappointed. I am curious about their decision for 2 chaos models this year. I've never had an interest in playing any form of chaos in AoS or 40k. I thought last year was genius to use an assassin as any imperial player can use him, so he might not just sit on a shelf for 30 years collecting dust.

True. But I think they are very much also about just being ‘special pieces’ more than usable.
A fantasy Orc is only usable by one lot of people anyway.
Obviously it’s great when usable too, but it’s like the Games Day models, they brought them out just with the whole fomo I guess.

Also I just want to scream into the void about how useless it is to put old rulebooks on the app without any of the rule content. That was ostensibly most of the point of those books, right?

Campaign books are about both fluff and rules. Of course the rules are no longer supported, so they get cut. Which is stupid, but what are you going to do?

It seems that GW's intent with the exclusive models is to tie them into the year of Chaos they're doing. New Chaos Marines, new Warcry, new Daemons book, new Slaves to Darkness. Would more universally usable models be better for more people? Sure. But since they have a theme for the year, it seems they want to tie in the exclusives as well.

The vast majority of the books are campaign books which are usually 50% lore and 50% rules. Obviously they could have just put up the whole book but an expanding compilation of old gw lore is a pretty good thing to have not to mention all the great art those books included. There are rumours of a vault app which would make those things much easier to access. I've said it before but the vault is the reason I'm going to continue my subscription.

Endtimes was probably 80% lore 20% rules.
Not that that went well for us.
But very lore heavy some books are.

Yeah. Having the Familars has narrowed it considerably. But even at £26, I’m not sure I’d feel let down by paying for either of them.

I believe it was end of July, ie. two weeks ago.

I think it's bit of duck move to send year one miniatures to new subscribers when majority of day one subscribers are still waiting for the opportunity to pick theirs.

That place is the harsh dark future far left with only war left.

I know I complain occasionally about crap looking minis GW makes sometimes, so...

They straight nailed that Terminator. It might be one of the All Time Best IMHO.

Sorc looks good, but it's the Familiars that sell that setup.

Nice work all around, but that Terminator....

Chaos sorceress looks great. Halo is a bit much, but easily detached. I like the look of someone trying for power but falling to chaos mutation.

The terminator... eh. It reminds me of the SoB character model from the artwork. Knowing they were going to do this model, I'd hope they'd avoid the pitfalls of doing a 1 to 1 art to model transition, and do some finesse updates. Alas, no.

So it just looks clunky and more than a bit silly- the gun and the fist definitely don't help- it looks like someone plucked most of the legs of the spider, rather than fingers. And the pose makes the standard terminator shoulder problem even worse. No idea what the elongated genestealer head is about.

And I get that the KT space hulk thing is coming. But this minimal basing thing for 40k models is starting to feel weird. This isn't ship debris, just a couple rocks and some gravel on barely painted plastic.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.
