So Games Workshop is making a strong move to get back to the quicker and simpler games of Kill Team. If the rumors about how this plays are true it could be a really great way to start a small league, a new army or get new players into 40k.

On top of that we are getting a look at the new White Dwarf which is claiming to be “Bigger, Better, Brand New” – well it certainly looks bigger and brand new. I would like to see what the rest of the content inside looks like before I get behind the “better” tag line. You can still get a subscription to White Dwarf for $90 for a full year (that’s 12 issues). The first one ships out on September 2, 2016 – a date that is fast approaching!

 

No new models this week but GW is re-introducing some old friends! Have at it folks.

  • SilentPony

    The rumors are true?!

    • Zingbaby

      Must be because GW just updated my old KillTeam pdf from several years ago!

  • CthulhuDawg

    I’m drowning in mini rule books.

  • ZeeLobby

    Glad I haven’t signed on to the new White Dwarf yet. A guide to a large costing kit, and four guys bought start collecting boxes and you should too! What happened to simply letting those 4 guys build their own army from scratch from things they personally play with (assuming they personally play).

    • luke snell

      it’s one issue, man. and considering you don’t know what makes up the bulk of the issue, there is still plenty to be had hopefully. I realize you are just not a fan of GW to begin with, so you don’t have much incentive to look forward or have much confidence to a re-vamp. as a whole with GW relaunching itself over the past 6 months, the General’s Handbook now in effect, when trying to establish potential new blood, would make real good sense to see how people are making use of the new get starter kits to build armies. I’m with you (kind of) in that it would be really cool to see Tale of 4 Gamers doing completely custom armies, but like I said, it’s the first issue.
      I could care less about playing Imperial Knights, but I’ll still enjoy reading about them if there is something interesting to read.

      • ZeeLobby

        I’m actually an Uber fan. I’ve only been forced to stop playing because everyone else around me has. That said I’m not a fan of their last 4/5 years. I’ve just seen nothing out of the GW leaks that doesn’t show a page that doesn’t look like an advert in some way. It could be just because it’s always the studio painted models. I understand they’ve always used them, but I miss when the majority of hobby or game related articles were staff made and painted armies. I mean like you said, this is only a small fraction of the total pages, so I could be horribly wrong, I just can’t bring myself to accept another revamp of a catalog. I honestly wished they’d even just switched up the font and print style or something.

    I’ll have to take a look at the Kill Team rules and, if reasonably priced, pick up a copy. You can’t ever have enough marines! I’ll look at white dwarf too, but I’ll wait until it reaches stores. I also thought there was suppose to be a freebie with the first four issues, so what’s the freebie with this one?

  • Shawn

    Hey all,
    I just checked my mail. It turns out, that since I bought the previous digital edition of Kill Team, GW is going to give me a the new version for free. It will be available to download when it releases. Again, GW shows they can do great stuff.

    • Boondox

      How long ago did you purchase it? I’ve been waiting on the update for ages and even re-purchased it when I thought it had been updated.

    • Shawn

      Hey Boondox, for some reason your comment didn’t make it here, but to answer your question, I purchased the Kill Team rules in 12 Dec 2013.

  • Hawt Dawg

    Wow, Kill Team on my iPad FTW!

    I finally get to play 40K more often. 🙂

  • georgelabour

    It’s nothing new. They also updated Farsight Enclaves and WAAGH: Ghazghkull when they released the new print versions a few months back.

  • euansmith

    The artwork on Kill Team box is pretty darn spanking. I’m not sure it evokes the Grim Dark, but it looks like the sort of thing that would appeal to someone with a casual interest in starting up with 40k.

    • kobalt60

      You might be right, so to get the proper grimdark, i’m going to draw skulls on mine, then explosions, then exploding skulls.

  • kobalt60

    Will this white dwarf be issue 1? or continue the numbering of the weekly ones, or continue where the old monthly stopped? My OCD must know

  • catweasel

    so it says free gift “slaaneshteaparty miniature” is all i can make out
