White Dwarf February 2017

The Eldar brought their doom upon themselves long ago. Now another spectre looms over the Aeldari race – doom for some, rebirth for others, it is Ynnead, the Eldar god of the dead, and you can read all about what this means for the Eldar, their enemies and a galaxy already beset by the Gathering Storm in February’s issue of White Dwarf! Meanwhile, in the Mortal Realms, Tzeentch has unleashed his most potent followers, his Daemons, and they face the newly-reinforced Stormcast Eternals in our battle report. (We’ve painting guides for both armies in Paint Splatter, too.)


Elsewhere, one of White Dwarf’s most popular features, A Tale of Four Warlords, reaches its conclusion – and with an earth-shattering battle between the Four Warlords to boot. All that and much more besides in 148 jam-packed pages.

Did you catch that massive hint from the Designer’s Notes: There’s a Third book in the Gathering Storm! On top of that, Phil Kelly doubles down on the “This is not the end times” talk:

Q: Is this the Rhana Dandra, the end of all things for the Eldar Race?

Phil: “Not even close…Some amoung the Eldar believe that this is the end, that this is the last battle of the Eldar, but most understand that their imminent fate has been derailed and that the Rhana Danda has been, shall we say, postponed. This may be a dired time for the Imperium but for the Eldar events have been set in motion that could save their race. At least for the time being, anyway.”


Pre-orders are available this weekend and will ship out Feb 4th, 2017!

  • Iconoc1ast

    Gods be damnned. Is my WD late again…?

    • BrassWitch

      Likely, WD made a post on facebook addressing the delays.

      • Horus84cmd

        Well explaining why issues can end up being delayed due to local postal services. GW dispatched with the aim of arriving on the Monday before release i.e. for this months Monday 30th. Which, as according to the FB generally happens and 99% are delivered by the release Saturday. Which, to be honest, I reckon sounds quite a good rate of delivery.

        • Cergorach

          I must fall in that 1% every month… Gosh… Do I feel special! 😉

          • Horus84cmd

            Ha. How late do you get yours then?

          • Dwarl

            Not the person you asked, but my White Dwarf editions don’t usually arrive until the 12th of the month. This month’s was especially bad and didn’t get here until the 21st, and even worse was the first edition which didn’t arrive at all, but I called customer service and they sent me a free copy.

            Say what you want about GW’s business practices, but their customer service is some of the best I’ve ever seen.

          • Horus84cmd

            Ooo thats unfortunate…where do you live? If it the UK then your area’s Royal Mail is dreadful.

      • Iconoc1ast

        Oh. Did not see that. Thanks though 🙂

  • Sicxpence

    So the third book will have a golden palette to it, like a spark of hoe within the galaxy…

    Sounds like the Emperor is getting out of hospital at last.

  • Sparti67

    Shame on us for thinking when GW says the “final days of the 41st millennium” we think it’s the final days of the 41st millennium.

    • Horus84cmd

      It can be the final days of the 41st millennium if the date it moved forward!

      GW could happily rebrand the title of 40k to something else. Personally I’m rooting for “Warhammer: Dark Millennium”. As this harks to its roots and does away with pigeon holing the setting to the year 40,000

      • Jack Jomar

        It would be a wonderful callout to the 2nd ed expansion box.

        • Horus84cmd


      • Sparti67

        the year 40k has only lasted 30 + years. what’s the rush? 😉

    • Jared van Kell

      This is but the prelude to the final days. It has not yet grown dark enough.

  • euansmith

    “February White Dwarf Run-Down”

    Is he in hospital? Have they been able to get the tire marks off him?

  • Emperor’s Champion

    Every time I read rahna dandra I keep singing the sMurf song. RA-NA-DA-NA-DRA-DRA ELDRAD WAS SO WRONG

  • euansmith

    I think it must be great to have the talent to create artwork like in the “Illuminations” spread; especially that super-dramatic first picture.

  • Jared van Kell

    So there is a third book to come in the Gathering Storm saga and likely with it, a third triumvirate.

  • Shawn Pero

    Orks better be represented in this next installment, all’s I’m sayin’.
