Looks interesting enough at the initial teaser, they don't have 80 easy build kits though so who knows what will actually be the contents beyond the initial 4.

"Issue 1 priced at £1.99, Issue 2 at £4.99 then £7.99 per issue thereafter."

Could be the older push-fit boxes (Cultists, Guardians, etc.) - they're £6 direct.

That still wouldn't make 80 issues, even with the Age of Sigmar and Fantasy pushfits, I don't think theres 80 collectively.

At £7.99 I can see them giving out bigger sprues or heroes even. WD #1 had the Slaughterpriest, which has a RRP 18£. Primaris heroes are 20. Blight Hauler is 15. Issues could only include paints or tools.

Thats my thinking too, Primaris combat squads are 20 pounds, lots of kits are around that price too and once the newsagents stop holding them on the shelves as they often do I would wager the deals will be better as they no longer have anyone picking up the one mag they want for discount on the kit.

This could be great, it looks very much in the vein of the old LotR Battle Games In Middle Earth collection which I'm sure is the reason many of us are in the hobby to this day. Even if the value isn't as insane as it was with that (£3.99 a fortnight for the magazine and a full sprue of 10-12 minis or a metal mini and paint! Those were the days) then this certainly has massive potential to offer an affordable, accessible chunk of hobby material to people on limited budgets or unwilling/unable to collect a full army.

Interested to see what kind of contents get served up, but I could actually see myself going for this; having a few minis every couple of weeks at a cut price to just muck about with would be good fun and not too straining on the wallet.

Wait, what? At my shop, they're always sold out. As soon as they get a new delivery, everything is sold on the first weekend. It's by far the most popular item there.

Shame it’s only in the Uk. I would happily buy the first issue. £1.99 for the easy build primaris marines, 3 paints and a brush is probably the best deal gw has ever done. Even the later issues are cheaper than just buying the minis. Very curious what they are going to put in the other 76 issues especially as it is weekly. Are there a whole lot more easy build kits on the way?

Damm only UK... at least the two first issues are worth it just for the paint alone!

Is there something about them I'm missing? I've seen them around here. Never tons of them, but they never really look like they have any missing either.

It could be a regional thing. For example in Spain they are very popular, just like the GW tape measures. I know in many other places people just buy one much cheaper from a shop, but in Spain, to find a tape measure that it is on inches is very difficult, every single one is on centimeters. So like 90% of the people uses a GW official one.

Cheap and handy. Other similar grips cost about the same, might as well buy a GW one.

I actually couldn't recommend those things enough if you can get one. They're fantastic, and pretty damn cheap for GW tools.

Ikea sells them with cm and inch for 1€.

They are only available in my FLGS now because probably all regulars finally have at least one. They were continuously out of stock for weeks

The paint handle is really nice, actually.

As for how they are going to get 80 issues, I don't see anywhere that says there will never be duplicate miniatures. I'm sure at some point they will have you build bigger units.

I'm not sure it will be worth it for someone who has a 40k collection / many of GW's E2B sprues but as a way to introduce the hobby to more people this is a good concept. I like it but wouldn't probably subscribe. Hopefully - like the Star Wars and Marvel comic collections - this will be available in other countries too next year or so.

I guess the paint pots are the smaller ones, from the Marine/Death Guard paint sets released last fall.

This may be Hachette doing a trial run again.

They ran it with the 40k novel run, and the Transformers comic run. I know because I signed up to both.

Rather than a ‘will this actually sell’, it’s more ‘what sort of volumes should we print’.

I've signed up: the first delivery of four issues (with the first two at a discount) is worth it for the models, paints and brush alone. After that, I'll see what future issues hold.
