A few little morsels for the day…
White Dwarf 5th Edition Mini
Ramping up for the release of 5th Edition, GW is giving everyone a little treat in an upcoming White Dwarf. Here are the details:
There is a free Terminator and Ork to be mailed with US WD #344. These are models from the new 40K boxed starter set. The Terminator is 4 major parts plus a base: torso front including head, full lower body with torso rear half, left arm and right arm, plus one small fifth bit in the form of a decorative skull. The Ork is 3 parts plus base: body, head and one separate pistol wielding arm if my memory serves me correctly.
The amount of detail on these models is terrific. They appear to have all the same types of detail seen on their multi-part model equivalents. Per page 39 in WD #342, newstand copies of WD will come with one model or the other while subscribers will get both models.
There are conflicting reports that the LOS pointer is an LED, not an actual laser as predicted by many, so there should be little in the way of safety concerns with it (the jury is still out on this one).
We are hearing that the small tower-like bunker and the terrific landing pad shown in photos in the new rule book are model kits under consideration for release in the near future. So look for them the next time you flip throughthe book.
~Well, no laser eye trauma is always something to be thankful for(if it pans out…). I admit to being somewhat worried about the ensuing laser shenanigans when I first heard about it, but it looks like we all dodged a bullet on this one.
