A new 40k Terrain piece, Haemotrope Reactors, is featured in the book along side some Age of Sigmar terrain. The Magewrath Throne and the Balewind Vortex are two great pieces of terrain for Age of Sigmar and if you have any casters in your army you should definitely take a look at the Balewind Vortex because your caster can summon it for free, he stands on top of it and basically can’t be reached and it doubles the range of his spells. This is definitely a solid piece to have coming in at only $15.

There is a giant two page add for the new Blood Bowl game in the center of the White Dwarf. This leads us to believe that the new edition landing next month??

The Space Marine Land Raider from 1999, by Jes Goodwin,  has been inducted into the Citadel Hall Of Fame and an article was constructed describing this occasion. Jes Goodwin is an amazing sculptor that basically laid the groundwork for how the Space Marines look today.

The Genereal’s Almanack talks a lot about competitive play vs the casual narrative kind of play and also touches some on army building and other overall things about Age of Sigmar.

    Still no word on whether or not the Reactors confer any type of bonus. Any hints out there on whether they are strictly a decorative terrain piece?

    • Scott Resnick

      Current rumors state that it’s the 29th piece of terrain in the new Planetary supplement coming out next month, which a mix of Stronghold Assault, Cityfight, and a few other older terrain-based supplements. It was also going to republish the rules for the Tau terrain that so far was only in Damocles.

        Can’t wait for the new supplement to combine those books. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if they release a PDF of the rules for the reactor until the supplement comes out or pack them in the box with the kit.

        Oh goodie, another book that may or may not become obsolete when 8th edition comes out.

        • ZeeLobby

          Lol. Yup. Still in my holding pattern. Haven’t bought the GSC codex for the same reason.

    • euansmith

      How about, “Makes all Flamers with 12″ count as twin-linked, but generates a Blood Tithe point for an opposing Khorne player each time this ability is used”? 😀 That would be fluffy.

    • Nyyppä

      Knowing GW it has rules.

  • Oggthrok

    I’m actually excited to see the Storm of Magic terrain returning. For GW it feels like a no-brainer – they have the molds, and the terrain looks more appropriate in Age of Sigmar than it did in Warhammer Fantasy.
    It’s a little strange that the Magewrath Throne lost the column of skulls though… I wonder if it will be made available separately?

    • Nyyppä

      Maybe 6 months ago I needed that kit. Now I just want it. It’s pretty awesome.

  • ZeeLobby

    I know this is a silly gripe, but I’m just not a fan of the modern layout. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of the weekly sales catalog. It could just be because the old monthly always had cool background templates for pages, stained ancient text, galactic maps, etc. Each section seemed individually focused on even though it broke up the continuity of the magazine.
