Today From Games Workshop



It's an interesting day with Games Workshop, as this is the first week that there have been no releases, but instead some exclusive material (free with the purchase of White Dwarf). Its also worth noting that if you did miss out last week on the final chapter of the Shield of Baal Campaign, you can still pick up Exterminatus (softback). It had sold out quickly last weekend, even before the hardback version did, but it being out of stock was only temporary.


Here is an excerpt today from " What's New Today" about what to expect out of the latest White Dwarf.

Shield of Baal: Exterminatus (Softback) $66

Yes, you read that right, this week’s issue of White Dwarf includes more free stuff. This week it’s a card insert featuring 18 objective cards for use in Cities of Death games. We’ve even printed the full rules for playing Cities of Death in the issue, so you can fight your next battle in the cramped confines of an Imperial city. The next 18 objective cards (to make the full set of 36) will be included in issue 48, out next Saturday. You can pick up your copy of White Dwarf tomorrow from your local Games Workshop, independent stockist or right here on the Games Workshop webstore.

This week’s White Dwarf also includes a pair of mini-games, one for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and one for Warhammer. If you get a mini pack of playing cards in a Christmas cracker next week, don’t throw them away because they’d come in very handy for these games. This week also features a Codex: Apocrypha about the Lizardmen during the End Times, four exclusive formations for Blood Angels and Necrons, a battle between Nagash and the Glottkin and plenty more besides.

  1. So there is a WD next weekend then? Possible Necron pre-orders for the following week maybe?

    1. Omg!!! A WD??? :O

      They do them every week.
      The only reason to report this, is due to the lack of nothing els at all releasing!

      Yeah... Sure means necrons -.-

    2. Aye WD is weekly, but because many people don't work around and over Xmas, a lot of publishers don't release anything during the Xmas week here in the UK.

      Which is next week :]

    4. No the news is that their is funky free stuff in WD and people may want to check it out if they normally skip WD.

  2. Kudos to gw for putting them on card stock instead of just printing them in a page.

  3. Exterminatus is still available on hardback in Belgium. The softcover though has never been available at all.

  4. I stand (happily) corrected.... Kudos to GW for printing the cards on actual card!!... I feel like we've definitely rounded a corner and someone at GW who remembers the 'good ole days' is influencing decision making. Now if we can just have some better plastic Greater Daemon models I'd be a very happy boy!

    2. The Glottkin makes a fantastic great unclean one.

    3. i thought so as well until the internet went AWOL when that was suggested. all the WAAAAAAaAAAAAaaaaHHHHHH you cannot use glottkin in 40k WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH.....go look at the threads on glotkin and see the WAAAAAAAAAAAAAaH in all it's teary glory.

      then again as i mentioned at the time, no ones opinions matter except your reg opponent.

      still not complaining just giving a refresher commentary based on the upheaval the Glottkin got particularly from this site.

      heck i was one of the first to suggest that is it's alternate use.
      anyway the Glott isn't a GUO, so if they release "actual" GD's then WOOT WOOT *cloud nine*

  5. So they're putting the City Fight... I mean Cities of Death rules in the WD? Arg. I'm going to have to march my arse out to the OTHER GW stockist in my area, because my local games shop refuses to stock WD. Because none of her customers buy it.

  6. So no release next week or the week after? Wow I'm shocked who could have predicted that? I was absolutely convinced by the Necron rumours for this week. I mean it is not like only a complete moron would think they were going to release Crons this week when there was never going to be a release this week or next...
