White Dwarf 345zagor66 08-31-2008

Just got my issue from the subscription and thought it was quite a good issue the warhammer raids could be used to expand with chaos dwarfs to make a chaos dwarfs raiding force a perfect combination if i do say so myself, the assualt on black reach articles were good with scenarios and painting articles and to top it off came with two free minatures and was just wandering what everyone else was going to do with them, I was going to turn the Nob into a big mek and the terminator into a chaplin.Takes Hat off

Hey Zagor, good to see you back. I just bought it for the free miniatures and it turned out to be quite a good issue. The master class taught me a few things I'll be using when I redo my dark elves. Best of all was I learnt you can get the rules for Gorkamorka and Dark future from the specialist games site even though they're no longer in print. I've downloaded these and will be checking them out this weekend. Warhammer raids looks like it could be fun to play as well, and would be great for those just getting their CDs together

Good to be back had a busy Holiday, I also saw the gorkamorka bit in standard bearer which is excellent as I was trying to get the rules for the red gobbo and my new mek will go with gorka quite well methinks.

RE: White Dwarf 345Grimstonefire 09-01-2008

I liked the warhammer Raids article.  There must be a way to represent slave taking as a special rule for the CD in a balanced way...?  Its so much a part of our army theme.

The free minis are also nice.  I'm tempted to go for a blood angels terminator, but a chaplain is also tempting.

I always find the bits from the sculpters a good read, so that was nice to see.  A few good painting tips in there.

Overall a good white Dwarf.  Not up to some of the excellant ones of the past, but certainly back on top form again IMO.

RE: White Dwarf 345Hammerhand 09-01-2008

Yeah, judging by the last few issues it's definitely on the up.  Even though I'm quite dissapointed with the To4G, it's still quite a good read, and it was nice to see that even with the massive release of AoBR the rest of the hobby wasn't just paid lip service like when apocalypse was released.  I must admit, if it carries on like this, I may just take out another subscription!

I'm not sure what to do with the free minis.  Maybe we could do side competition on CDO for a duel using them two models?


It's been a long time baby, but I guess the mark of Hashut just burns too deep.......

RE: White Dwarf 345Hashut's Blessing 09-03-2008

I couldn't think what you were all on about with the raids and then I remembered. I was very surprised to see we weren't mentioned under the slaving part. Still, the rules could be good.

Kera, I'd suggest you buy it, even if just for the miniatures. However, (and I hope GW read this as it's a small piece of congratulations to them. I'm ACTAULLY agreeing with them Tongue ) it contains some good articles too. perhaps a wee bit too much painting for my liking, but less than there has been for a long time. I'm very excited to see freebies coming back (the models) and also glad to see rules appaearing in there again. A WD that has made me very happy. Alas, I have two problems: there is still too much stuff I don't read at the back, advertising the gaming clubs and events and stores etc and I disliked the Standard Bearer article. Increasingly, I;ve found it saying I'm going to talk to you about X. X. Article finished.

This one, it seemed to say: Specialist Games exist. You can get the rules online. They really do still exist, go check. I didn't feel it went very in-depth about them. I got more information from the captions of each game than the main article. Otherwise, it's going great!

RE: White Dwarf 345Kera foehunter 09-04-2008

well the raid well not empressed 2000 pt army that would be more like an envasion for most people
anyway it seems that  mr. thrope let us down again!!!
it sound great for the Dark elves and the green skins would get to play this!!!! if you want a raiding party use 750 pt it make you think what to pick .  
these are probly rules left over from the NemesisCrown ( last year throw some rules together )
sorry guys!!!! but that how i feel .
