I have the new White Dwarf!

The new White Dwarf
I have it!

Yes, you read that right, I have the new White Dwarf in my hands! How you may ask? Well, for some reason, the digital (i.e. iPad version) is released on the friday, as opposed to on the saturday. As as we speak I'm reading through it!

So if you have an iPad, download it now!

I'm happy to post any info I can get from it, but if you want to know something specific about the magazine (rules questions etc.) post a comment to this post and I'll reply!

Later tonight there will be a full review of the magazine and also an article telling you what we can expect from the new codex (now I have the White Dwarf in hand!)

As I read through it I'll start posting general information below, but if you want something specific, ask!

Rumours from Faeit 212 - release information given to employees.

  1. Any news on a ltd edition codex?

    1. No mention of it in the White Dwarf, however there was no mention of limited edition one in the October White Dwarf, so there probably will be one, its just not mentioned.

      My guess would be that they will sell out very quickly, probably tomorrow on advance order day, so giving them any White Dwarf space would be pointless.

    2. Latest rumours confirm there is a Limited edition codex!

    3. Thanks, guess I'll preorder on the site at midnight instead of popping in the shop after work. The postman better bring my white dwarf tomorrow!

    4. I'd preorder only what you have to from GW, I'd order the rest from wayland games (check out the most recent post) it could end up saving you a big deal!


    6. I got GW vouchers off the wife for Xmas, bought them myself rather than her getting me something crap.

  2. Is there any mention of what Sammael's warlord trait actually does?


    1. Nope, didn't see anything in the battle report or anywhere else. However he does have a special rule allowing ravenwing bikes to be taken as troops.

    2. Okay great I was worried. He has a warlord trait called "rapid manuevers" and I was afraid it was going to be something that just makes fast attack scoring.
