GW: June White Dwarf Teaser

This month’s White Dwarf is kind of a big deal. I heard it’s going to feature a new edition or something…

White Dwarf Editor Matt Keefe: This issue, to complement the release of Warhammer 40,000, what we wanted to do is show off the full range of possibilities in this best ever edition of the game. You’ve seen a ton of stuff over these past few weeks about how the new Warhammer 40,000 really works but what really makes this new edition, we think, is the sheer variety possible – in how you play, how you choose your armies (even how you add up the army’s cost), the kind of missions you play, the strategies you adopt and, well, every aspect of the game really.

First Blood – Members of the White Dwarf Team take a crack at their first games of Warhammer 40,000 8th:

Robin Cruddance and Jes Bickham talk about the game from the designers point of view:

We get a detailed look at the Primaris Space Marines in their Mark X Armour!

We also get a look at how a handful of the staff and how they are adapting their forces to 8th:


And we also get an EPIC looking battle report as well:

“There is, of course, a lot more besides – Golden Demon: Horus Heresy, A Tale of Four Warlords (watch the group get ready for the new edition), a look at four beautiful legions from the Mortal Realms, The Ultimate Guide to… Blades of Khorne and much, much more besides. Head on over to the White Dwarf Facebook page for more previews over the coming week.”

There promises to be lots of great stuff in this month’s White Dwarf – plus it’s Warhammer 40k 8th’s launch! I’ve been chompin at the bit to play games all week. It’s been a fun ride so far and I think that this edition has the potential to last for a very long time.


The June White Dwarf goes on sale next Friday and New Edition hit shelves Saturday – Are you ready for Warhammer 40k!?

  • It is a little annoying that I have to wait two weeks for my copy of WD to arrive. What is so special that they had to hold it back, given that many stores have had a copy of the game for customers to look through for a week?

    The wait for 8th is feeling a bit dragged out now.

      And yet you were one of those people screaming when GW never used to leak anything ahead of time. Talking about how they’d generate hype, and people would know what to save for if they were aware of what’s coming out weeks or months ahead. (Which is absurd because gamers spend every penny every week anyway and then complain they can’t afford a new release even when they were aware of it well in advance.)

      Now you’re insinuating boredom at having to wait one more week. Well, GW wants to have all of the shipping logistics, store events and website updates ready to go so there aren’t shortages and delays.

        He’s complaining, quite rightly, that he doesn’t have his white dwarf a week after it was supposed to arrive, not that he doesn’t have the starter set yet. I don’t see how delaying a magazine improves shipping logistics for the rest of your products.

        Holy unrelated facts, Batman!

      • Do you know me? Or are you just assuming that I was “one of those people”?

        I’m not actually planning on buying anything to do with 8th at the moment as there is nothing I’m interested in picking up, nor do I have the money (or am likely to for some time); I like the new marines but would much rather wait till multi-part kits are released instead of mono-pose.

        A new edition of 40k has been on the cards for a while but I was much happier spending what little gaming funds I have getting Shadow War and I have more than enough to get on with for now.

        Actually the boredom to which I was referring to was the continual drip feed of 40k info. To me it feels like GW is dragging out the release. I’d much rather they released 40k in time for the new WD and not the other way around, especially as most if not all the info in the new mag has likely already been released already.

          He also assumed ya gender. 😀

          He was thinking of hard boiled egg!

    • el_tigre

      Yeah, it’s rediculous. Does this mean we’ll get another 2 weeks later, or are my WDs just gonna be super late for the rest of the year?

    • Boondox

      My subscription has never arrived on time so I wouldn’t have noticed the 2 week delay until you told me. Thanks?

  • eMtoN

    I’ve been working on a new tau army for the past couple weeks. It’s funny that the paint scheme I’ve been doing is very similar to those.

  • Boondox

    So I’ll be getting the WD telling me about 8th Ed. after I actually get 8th Ed.? Pure marketing genius GW!!
