White Dwarf Leaked Images Reveal Exclusive Formations and More


Images from this coming Saturday's White Dwarf are out, and there are no new releases this week. So what is there then? Well we have some free (with purchase of the White Dwarf) exclusive White Dwarf Shield of Baal formations. The formations the Flesh Tearers, Necrons, Blood Angels. and apparently no Tyranid ones. Check out the latest leaked images and what else the latest magazine has.


So very much this week and the next we are going to be getting a bunch of freebies in the White Dwarf, like Cities of Death cards and formations, but nothing else. That places our next pre-order date most likely at January 2nd

Here is a link to where you can find very much everything on the leaked images.

  1. That looks like an amazingly good issue of White Dwarf.

  2. Need a clearer picture of the rules for that Necron Formation. If there's a way to make the Monolith more viable, please gimme.

    1. Well, you could always make a Resurrection Protocols roll, and if you succeed, use the old Necron codex.

    2. From what i can tell the monolith can repair D6 warriors or D3 immortals in the movement phase, not bad depending on range.

  3. It's the Shield of Baal exterminatus Formations

    1. The ones included have a White Dwarf Exclusive marker on them, so they are actually beyond that Exterminatus book. I'm excited to have some new options for my Sons of Sanguinius.

  4. Now people will complain about getting additional content for free/cheap even though they didn't know it was coming to begin with. It's funny, because people ask for this stuff all the time, then when GW gives it (rather frequently, I might add), the people complain.

    1. "People".....
      I'm not complaining. My friends are not complaining. Where are those "people" you're talking about?

      Delete
    2. This is just my opinion, mind, but I kind think one loses the moral high ground when they complain about what they think other people are complaining about before anyone has had a chance to complain it.

    3. What I think McDoogle is trying to say is that there are some people that may dislike the fact that this content is in a "limited run" magazine: My advice - buy the magazine! (After all White Dwarf is much less limited than Shield of Baal has been)

    4. @pdzikus: The usual whiners on the internet. I would damn them all, if I wasn't one of them from time to time ;)

    5. There is always people getting butthurt about other people that are butthurt.
      And there are people that rant about people that could get butthurt but didnt! -.-

      Delete
    6. McDoogle this is the first time I can say I agree with you. The typical GW fan enjoys being butthurt; give them what they want and they will still find a way to tell you why it sucks.

    8. I don't agree because I don't see anyone whining about this anywhere. This is just an example of someone trying to say "wow look at all of these people complaining, they're so ignorant and I'm so smart".... except no one is actually complaining. He just wants to put down imaginary people to build up his own self-esteem.

      Delete
    9. McDoogle has [grits teeth] a point. On an earlier thread when free Cities of Death cards leaked, amongst the very first posts were complaints about having to buy WD to get them or the quality of the material not being as good as normal cards. Even on this forum its a near certainty any GW thread will have someone complaining in it.

      Delete
    10. Make a comparison? Ad hominem attacks. Point out a flaw? Ad hominem attacks. Say nothing? Straw man arguments. What a shock. "GW can do nothing wrong" fanboys will always find something to bitch about.

      Delete
    11. There's a difference between reasonable criticism and a determination to find fault or unreasonable expectations. Where the dividing line between those positions lies is, of course, very subjective but, given the way GW have tried to respond to customer wants this year but there is still disatisfaction on almost all threads, it does seem (to me anyway) that there's still a default position of negativity for many people. Partly GWs own fault though: a legacy of historically pretty poor customer engagement.

    12. Complaining and whining have become a part of this hobby. I would be more surprise if there was none. Let the complainers and whiners do what they do best and let me enjoy this hobby.

  6. Call me crazy, but "free" has only one meaning to me.

    If you pay for a White Dwarf magazine, you receive nothing inside of it for free.

    Don't get me wrong, this is GREAT content and exactly what should be contained in its pages (among other things).

    Definitely isn't free.

    1. Though I will say that it's "free" for anyone who views the image online or in person and doesn't buy it, and uses the rules.

      Delete
    2. People expect to Pay loads.
      Everything that is not a new level of moneygrab is considerd "good".

      Free is like Limited. Just a Way to sell stuff.

      Delete
    3. It's my hope that these white dwarf exclusive items will eventually show up in the "free" download section of black library, like most of the other recent releases. After a time of course.

    4. Although these cities of death cards will cost just under the price of standard tactical objectives so you could argue that you are actually getting two 'magazines' for free!

    6. @Right-O by your second definition of "free", WD rules are only as free as anything else in Warhammer. I can get all the codex/rulebook rules for "free" by torrenting them or taking pictures of someone else's. But that doesn't make the rules themselves free. They cost money, I'm just stealing them if I do that.

      Delete
    7. @Right-O Your argument is flawed: you have to buy WD to access the cards but the cards themselves do not cost extra; they can, therefore, reasonably be considered free. As an example: by your argument if you buy a cinema ticket and before the film starts the cinema hands out food and drink with no extra charge as a free treat you would argue that the cinema is being misleading calling it free because you had to buy a ticket and potentially, therefore, if you decline the food and drink, you should receive a partial refund because you were charged for something without permission; the cinema will argue that the ticket only entitles you to see the film, it does not entitle you to this food and drink, which is at their discretion and not charged for ie free. They're right (imho).

      An other way to look at it is, if the £2.40 for WD includes a charge for objective cards (because they aren't free) then every other time you buy a WD without such cards, or an equivalent, you are being given less than you have paid for and being cheated. that's not a line of reasoning which carries much weight.

      The WD will have these on pages that would otherwise not be without Content on those pages.
      Its not a bigger WD.
      Its not extra Content.
      Its a free as the painting guid you get in every WD.

  7. Will they mis out preorders due to christmas?

    1. if you don't make your order soon you'll likely see it probably after Xmas. i don't know anymore then you do really all i know is what i read here and other 40k forums or news sites. that is what i found out more or less

      Delete
  8. So this is definitely different to what's in Exterminatus right? I just want to avoid doubling up on purchases ...

  9. No Necron Codex this Fri or the Fri after. As per the 'Next week' teasers in the back of WD 46 and 47.

  10. I made out the rules for the Angel's Fury Spearhead Force:

    Augur Triangulation:
    If a friendly unit with the Blood Angels Faction arrives from Deep Strike Reserve within 12" of at

    least one model from this Formationequipped with a teleport homer then it does not scatter and can

    charge the same turn it arrives.

    Objective Secured

    Spearhead Strike
    When making Reserve Rolls make a single roll for the whole Formation which you can choose to re-roll. If successful all units arrive from the Formation. You can make a Reserve Roll for the Formation at the start of Turn 1.

    1. i cant quite make it out but i think your right, if so its the best formation yet. I would go as far to say its a meta changing one.
      this would make blood angles top tier could wreck knights with this.

      Delete
    2. I'm a bit of a BA noob. How would their tactical squads wreck Knights with this formation?

      Delete
    3. they wouldn't but the ability to charge one the turn you deep strike with units within 12" would be completely game changing.

      Delete
    4. Ah I think I get it. So this fornation lands in turn 1 and if it survives then death company can deep strike using jump packs and assault and they have access to enough S9 attacks in melee that they will wreck them ... That right?

      Delete
    5. Cool thanks. How many units and gunships are in the formation? Is it three of each?

      Delete
    6. I think triangulation works within 12" of two models and not one

      also it seems you can drop strike the formation and then another unit in the same turn and get the benefits. Normally it needs to be around for a whole turn before there's benefits from a "does not scatter" item.

      Delete
  11. The problem of course is that you need to take a 3 full 10 man tac squad, and they must start in the ravens. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't make the formation bad, but the ravens contents are far from optimal, and it doesn't leave a lot of points for your second wave.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 3 tactical squads and 3 Ravens is a lot of points

    ReplyDelete
  13. yes i thought it was two and i think you have to be in rage of two as well.
    still a good formation but not as amazing as i originally thought still think its a tournament standard formation.
