Review: White Dwarf October 2016

Got my White Dwarf today (yay) and it is continuing in the new monthly format of course, and there's much to enjoy in here for sure. So on with the review shall we?

First up, there's still a lot of stuff for both systems, but as the new releases where mostly 40k with the Genestealer Cults as the big release this wasn't a big surprise. Even though I'm not that into 40k at them moment there are some really nice articles in there like the 'Ultimate guide to Genestealer Cults' that gives you all the basic info about them. We have a nice battle report featuring said Cults of course spotted against Deathwatch, and you are also given an WD exclusive mission.

Oh and you get free stuff with issue too, this time you get the Issue 0 of Will of Iron with Dark Angels! Awesome stuff, haven't read trough it yet but I really like how it looks. And I hope GW is continuing with these Freebies (a download for Total War: Warhammer is in the next one from what Iv'e seen) because it's really great and adds value to the magazine.

A lot of stuff for the new big release of course.

Kit bash is an official thing again!

Teasing us the new Warhammer World only model :( Want it!

New Hobbit stuff, and new texture paints as well. Great I use them quite a lot and here's more of it.

OMG cards for all the heroes released so far in Silver Tower! And new heroes, love this!

Article about the new comic with interview with the author among other things, really nice for us comic book fans.

Hall of Fame: Smaug, with interviews with the designers of the model and painter. Love this model and the studio paint job by Aidan Daly is truly amazing.

Space Wolves is this army of the month, a lot of great stuff in this huge army.

A big interview with Jes Goodwin, one of the earliest members of the Citadel Miniatures Design team and who have made many iconic models over the years. Great read.

Really cool armies on parade, both for AoS and 40k.

The Ultimate Guide to Genestealer Cults spans over several pages and is really cool to read.

Fold out of the two armies in this months Battle report.

Many nice AoS illustrations.

Golden Daemon award winners, here's the Slayer Sword wining model Gutrot Spume, amazing!

Tale of four Warlords continues showing each warlords progress, and with some little painting tips on how they painted their models.

Masterclass is back! Here we learn how to paint faces, truly in depth especially compared to Paint Splatter.
Parade Ground with Les Martin's truly nice looking Stormcast army.

That's it, of course there's plenty of other stuff to read and look trough in here like Blanchitsu. I have just read it through fast so far and I will go and read it again now. I think just like the last issue this format is something you can flip trough, read an article. Then come back again, check out a paint tutorial, then come again etc etc. I feel it has a great mix of things, and even if this was mostly 40k there's plenty of AoS as well and many great articles to read. Just as the last issue I highly recommend this one.


  1. Thanks for the review! Now that buying a year's subscription is actually LESS than the cost of individual issues (DUH, only took 'em my lifetime to figure THAT out) I might actually subscribe.

    1. Hehe that is crazy. Better late than never I guess :)
