I subscribed for the first 4. Seems like something fun to go along with and if it loses steam after the first 4 I'm out £23 or so tops.

I have signed up for the first 4 issue trial run and will grab couple more issues of 1 and a second copy of issue 2 if I see any at the shops. At worst I get a couple of paints I will have limited use for and some models I don’t already own to paint.

Is anyone offering a subscription service for US customers? As in, a US customer subscribes and it ships to an address in theUK. Then every four issues, the UK address person then mails to the US. Something like that

I wouldn’t expect to see it in the shops for a couple of weeks, Hatchett partwork websites tend to go up at least a few weeks before hitting shops.

It was also one of the options put forward in the survey that I mentioned earlier.

Once the part works is up and running, the web site will normally have back issues available for those who want to be more selective over what they purchase.

Looks like a great tool to get kids into the hobby and build up their collections.

Some kits they can split over two issues like the EZ build redemptor, and I would put money on the Chaos cultist sprue turning up in the first few months.

I'll probably subscribe for cheap minis plus paints. Some of the LOTR issues were really good. It would also be great if scenery were included. The new ruin sprue is pretty easy to put together for a start.

I hope it doesn’t come out for a few weeks, I go on holiday tomorrow and I’m not back till the 15th.
I want to pick up issue 1, a couple of times if they aren’t shifting.
CoOp and Smiths are usually the ones.

To the post about shipping from UK not being worth it, it may wipe out most if not all of the discount for the models and paint, but you are getting the magazine which is quite an interesting thing for some.
(Also, that’d ship to the US for what maybe £10? Might even get 8 issues sent for that cost spending what’s in it.
You can send 1kg for £13 which is quite a few issues I’d have thought - there is a cheaper sending but I never use it so can’t remember it. About £8?)

Hama (issue #53 exclusive), the other Hama (Hornburg) pose was released individually as well as in Defenders of Rohan set.
Gandalf the White on Foot (not standing on a rock) with staff raised was a issue #39 exclusive.
Those were the only two

But not even out £23, as you’ll have got the RRP £20 Of models from the box set, a £3-4 brush, 6 paints at £15ish, plus the 4 magazines that may be alright. Decent saving..

Also month 2 is only £24 as you get the free issue, so it’s all to play for with what’s in those (of course we will find out when they turn up in a bundle I suppose so may or may not be worth it.

I had a thought if they aren’t doing part models per issue and it’s a whole model at least every time (their wording suggests), Felthius - one week, then the Cohort the next, as you’d get full sprue each time, is there anything primaris that is similar? A whole dread in one go would be great.

I also think after the first 4, there isn’t no need to go easy to build stuff either, as you’ve had 4 issues to become a modeller, so it could just be anything, that old one Marine on sprue bit, the set of three models that come in each of the paint sets, there’s like an ork one and so on right?
Could even be a sprue of something they are re doing later in the year, just to clear them, old finecast models even.
Point being I’m not so sure it’ll stick to those two ‘starter armies’

I’m definitely keeping an eye, will be interesting to see where it goes, and if they make it to 80..

Back in the LotR days they did the odd two-issue set, typically cavalry where you'd get the mounts one issue and the riders the next (though as they delivered 2 issues at a time you got it all in one go if you were subscribed). So doing a Dreadnought over a couple of weeks is certainly possible.

I'd not be surprised to see a few of the more recent character sprues make their way into future issues, they're hardly the most complex models in most cases.

If (and let's not kid ourselves 'when' ) they release this in the US, I'm all over it! I've looked at a lot of miniature subscription services, and they all seem very unappealing (would be happy to be proven wrong ). But I would enjoy receiving a somewhat rando mini from GW, especially every WEEK. Seems like they'd really have to step up their mailing opperation for something like this, but, if it works, you'll seed people's collections with a lot of minis they might not have normally purchased. Hopefully it does well in the UK, so we can get it set up in other countries as well.

Yeah quite a lot of those character minis were single sprue set ups, so really easy to do them.

The Multi week Dread thing goes against the website as it does say “Each Issue” has a miniature, LotR never promised that.
I know by 5 issues in no one will be doing it (as people will be subscribed by then) - but technically it is possible to buy the issues one a time a time. So sticking by their words they can’t do it, but I could easily see that being the way it’s done.

I think the first few months will focus on Imperium and Chaos. Primaris and Deathguard have 4 EZ build kits each.

However there is no reason not to put sprues from the starter sets, the single character sprues or the 5 man primaris sprues in there. Deathguard have a lot of elite characters.

However Lord Felthius is almost certainly going to be accompanied by a primaris captain of some sort for balance purposes.

What I hope they do is introduce a low point game standard format and missions. Kill team is sorely missed. They could then do a Kill Team box based around EZ build kits or similar.

What I might do is a collect along vlog were I build a new force based on the magazine.

You could also find Marine sprues being repeated, especially if the paint of the week is for Blood Angels.

The other thing BGiME did was to include cut out cardboard models every now and then dependant on the scenario, for example Watcher tentacles. There was also bonus sticker sheets as well. The best I remember was the large Royal standards for hanging around a scratch built Theoden's Hall.

There was also two special issues for Two Towers and ROTK that, for a higher cover price contained the metal mounted Gandalf/ Shadow fax and King Aragon models. Easy build Dreadnought as a special outside the numbered releases for a higher price?

I guess we'll just have to wait for whatever is planned past the first four issues.

Don't forget that the survey also hints there could be be more available if a subscriber is willing to pay extra per issue.

The extra money per issue could definitely be where we get a Dread and such.
And repeat models particularly on the SM side will happen I’m sure (much more noticeable on the DG side as their marines look more unique).

Having read the questions but not completed it I would say the survey is looking for feedback on what the later issues feature.

I'll be saying small scale skirmish rules like kill team, scenarios, exclusive models and big models.

Honestly after seeing who is behind it and the fun times I had dealing with them (hachette), any interest was immediately killed with prejudice.

My experience with Hachette hasn’t been too bad apart from the fact that they are sending out hardback graphic novels in rubbish cardboard boxes that sees the books end up damage every other month. That said, they always replace ant damaged issues without any question what so ever. When I have cancelled previously subscriptions it has always been very easy to do and just needed to send an email.

I don’t think the packaging will be an issue this time around.

I remember the "packaging". Cardboard box 3 times the size of the book, book is loose with no padding.

As for cancelling, it took several weeks with phonecalls and emails daily. Every time it was "Ok we've cancelled it, it'll show up in your account tomorrow", but it never did. And they went right on sending more stuff during that period.

They only actually cancelled it after I had the bank put in an order to refuse all payments to them. Shockingly they were actually able to cancel my sub almost immediately after I told them about that.

I did get the money back, via cheque, for the stuff they sent me while they knew I was trying to cancel.

They seem to alternate packaging between massive parcel way too big for the book with no extra padding so that it gets damaged or exactly the right sized box but waffer thin cardboard so offers no protection at all. Not ideal with hardcover books. Annoyingly they did trial some really good cardboard boxes that were a perfect fit but had extra cardboard around the corners to protect the spots most ofrten damaged, unfortunately it was only used for a few months. Hopefully Conquest will be in a larger box with extra filling.

Shame it was such a pain to cancel, for me it only took an email and had a reply with 12 hours confirming both subscriptions were cancelled.

Counter-anecdote; I cancelled my subscription to the legends collection thing on the hatchette website and it processed immediately, I had no further deliveries and no further money was taken. Maybe it was after MrDwhitey's trouble and they made an effort to sort their act out, or maybe it was before and they've gotten worse since, but either way my experience was fine.

It's dakka and no one has ever had anything go right for them, so don't worry about anecdotes.

I plan on unboxing these on my channel and doing build along and paint along and hopefully play along when I sort my workshop out in the next two months.

It'll be interesting to do a project with a definite beginning, middle and end.

I plan on doing the big boy marines as Lamenters and the Deathguard as classic Deathguard rather than my existing scheme that is much closer to heresy era.

Well I had a subscription reply saying how they’ll be taking payment and how issues will arrive etc. you get a subscriber number and such.
I’m guessing 300+ people have taken it out judging by my sub number

Just under 400 for me so decent number of people seem interested so far considering it isn't even available in shops or advertised yet.

Hachette always increase the number of issues if a product sells well so I wouldn't be surprised to see this go up to 120ish.
