There's also going to be a getting started booklet coming out, with background and hobby info for new players along with the basic rules, which comes with a single Primaris marine and costs the same as an issue of White Dwarf.


The return of bonus White Dwarf minis.  Old-school!

Less a bonus, and more a $10 mini with a glossy ad.

True, but the Khorne slaughterpriest they had in the WD a few months back was worth it. The mag seemed to have some decent game content as well, but I haven't bought another one since so I can't say whether it's consistent in that regard.

Looks like they're July releases, possibly towards the end of the month though. Here's what the book looks like:

From the description on the Warhammer Community site:

"[...] this 103-page guidebook is the perfect guide for any Warhammer 40,000 beginner, giving a thorough overview of the universe of the 41st Millennium, how the game works and the different armies you can collect. It also comes with an Easy to Build Intercessor and a set of core rules, allowing you to take the first steps of your journey for around the price of a White Dwarf."

Yay ^_^!

 

Though I can't condone the use of anything non-Imperial, I hope you have fun!

Well, can't fault you for your gear. Intent, maybe, but not gear.

 

May the noodly-faced four-armed god bless you in your endeavour!

I love the color choice.  It really makes them look like they brought their work gear to wear (which is the background, after all!)

I see someone likes shotguns, too. Good idea!

Seems like a good choice for ambushing troops.

FLGS just started a builder's campaign, currently at 500 points. Gonna do a Demons of chaos force, myself. Tzeentch starter force aquired, and a pair of khorne skull cannons on order from the FLGS, along with a couple succubi, Gargoyle, and hell-hound regiments web-ordered from mantic; demonette, Fury, and flesh hounds, respectively. I prefer both the mantic sculpts and prices, but the FLGS doesn't think he can get a decent turn-around time on the order.

 

It's going to be an outrider formation - lots of fast attack stuff, but maybe short on numbers. We'll see how it works.

 

my current force is fifteen chaos terminators, backed up by berserks, a trio of bikers, and a pair of sorcerers. Vanguard formation; it's great against some things, and has failed hilariously against others to date. Most of the termies are the old metal ones I tore apart in order to bulk up years ago, and just finished putting back together; that took a bunch of hours to short out.
