BoK Reviews: White Dwarf Issue #111

White Dwarf Issue #111: The Fury of the Storm

White Dwarf reviews operate differently than other Blood of Kittens Reviews. The goal with these reviews is to place a value for each issue. The rating system is one to four stars, each star represents $1 in value, to a max of four dollars. The review values are also Warhammer 40k based; Age of Sigmar dedicated issues will still be reviewed, but valued for Warhammer 40k players. It means you could see many low valued issues, with a general Games Workshop hobbyist actually valuing them more. Keep this in mind when deciding if a particular White Dwarf Issue is good for you.

Contents: New Releases

It is back! Age of Sigmar and it might be around for awhile once again. This time is the release of Dracothian Guard for the Stormcast Eternals.These highly details models lack any emotion like most of the Stormcast range and at $65 for two the price tag is extra off putting. Another Sigmar release is the Knight Heraldor, interestingly this character model is only $25 making it one of the cheaper Sigmar single models. Sigmar also gets an upgrade pack and small Battletome for the Dracothian dogs and few other units. The most appealing release, (which is saying something) is the new citadel super glue now in little dropper bottles along and GW is releasing new starter paint sets with 3 Space Marines or Stormcast Eternals. Black Library has the next in the Beast Arises series with The Last Wall by David Annandale. Finally, we get some Forge World love with the amazing Domitar Class Battle-Automata. This Ad-Mech walker is super amazing and if the size is right would make a great stand in for a Dreadknight.

Contents: Paint Splatter

This paint splatter shows you how to paint the Dracothian Guard. I like the methods for painting the Dracoth scales and underbelly, which are a green and blue respectively, but I don’t need to see how to paint a Stormcast Eternal for the millionth time.

What is GW saying?

Contents: Miniature of the Year 2015

Back in January White Dwarf readers were asked what was their favorite model from last year. After a few months of compiling the results, it wasn’t that shocking. One cool factoid is GW says they had 71 new releases for 2015. As for the results, 8 out of the 10 were Warhammer 40k models with Archaon taking the number 1 spot, and in all honesty it should be, too bad is it for an already dead game.

Final Verdict

Issue #111 is a trip back to terrible Age of Sigmar content only sycophants want, the models look terrible, and the only decent content is top 10 model list, hardly anything to pay for.
