BoK Reviews: White Dwarf Issue #113

White Dwarf Issue #112: Blessed by the Blood God

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

As sales continue to plummet with every new Age of Sigmar release you have to wonder when it will stop… well not this week as we get three overpriced Khorne character models. Exalted & Aspiring Death Bringer and another Slaughterpriest, there isn’t anything particularly wrong with these models with the Aspiring model being the best of the bunch. The Grand Alliance: Order Book has also coming out, leaving many old Warhammer fractions in the dust, like all of Bretonnia, much of the High Elves and classic Dwarves. Forge World has a cool release with heavy weapon sets for Space Marines, all the weapons have the hip underslung look. Black Library has two books, the Curse of the Wulfen which tells the tale of Herald Deathwolf’s first encounter with the Wulfen and the Seventh Serpent another part to the Shattered Legion novels for the Horus Heresy.

Contents: Forces of Order

Here we get an overview of the 21 difference factions you can find in the new Age of Sigmar Order book, this section is only saving grace is the images of impressive looking armies.

Contents: Golden Daemon Space Marines

Here we get a showcase of the Bronze winner for Space Marines from the Golden Demon awards. The model is by Neil Hollis who painted an Iron Hands Drop Pod with Marines all around. Technically it isn’t that special, but the presentation and a certain basing trick really makes up for it.
