So what’s new this week in 40K? It WAS a busy one…
The GW Mid-year Financials
Well, the big news is Games Workshop’s spectacularly BAD financials.
The basics of that are:
Revenue £60.5m (2013) £67.5m (2012)
Pre-tax profit £7.7m (2013) £11.1m (2012)
And there are two great articles that you can read to catch up.
The Basics of the 6 month Finacials
White Dwarf Changes
From Games Workshop:
White Dwarf magazine goes weekly!
Saturday 1 February sees the birth of the new, weekly, White Dwarf magazine.
Saturday 1 February sees the birth of the new, monthly, Warhammer: Visions magazine.
Yes, that’s right. We’ll be launching two new magazines on the same day, Saturday 1 February.
White Dwarf, now weekly.
From Saturday 1 February, White Dwarf will be available each and every Saturday exclusively in your local Games Workshop store, Independent Stockist and at games-workshop.com
White Dwarf will contain everything that’s new and exciting in the hobby that week, from news and information on all the week’s other new releases, to new columnists, interviews, painting, modelling, game rules and much more. And the price? The same as a pot of your favourite Citadel paint.
Warhammer: Visions, now monthly.
Warhammer: Visions will be available on the first Saturday every month in your local Games Workshop store, Independent Stockist, games-workshop.com and local newsstands in the UK, Europe and Australia.
Warhammer: Visions is a completely new monthly magazine, also from the White Dwarf team. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done before and this super high-quality visual feast weighs in at a whopping 236 pages, each and every month.
Tyranid Vanguard – Rising Leviathan I
In this Book:
Leviathan Rising is the first book in a trilogy of Tyranid Dataslates, each of which details the different stages of Hive Fleet Leviathan’s assault upon the planet of Satys. This first installment showcases the vanguard organisms of the Tyranid fleet. It contains formations, missions and rules so that you can re-create the hideous invasion techniques of Hive Fleet Leviathan in your games of Warhammer 40,000.
About this Edition:
This interactive edition features quick-links to special rules for ease of reference during your games.
Forge World Releases Achilles Pattern Land Raider
And they can have twin-linked Volkite Culverins as sponson weapons! I do wish they would have changed the kit more to be more Heresy-era. Basically, they slapped on new sponsons and wallah! Not enough for me. I want to see a new front end.
From Forge World
The Achilles-Alpha pattern Land Raider model, designed by Stuart Williamson, is a complete multi-part resin and plastic kit that comes with the option of either twin-linked multi-meltas or twin-linked volkite culverins as sponson weapons. This model is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday January 31st.
