BoK Reviews: White Dwarf Issue #120
White Dwarf Issue #120: Warhammer Quest Silver Tower
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, where 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
There is really only one new release, the semi-surprising Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower! Even if you are not a fan of Age of Sigmar you have to pause at the sheer beauty of this boxed game. It is filled with so many unique models it is hard to deny the breathtaking skill and love that comes through; even the game tiles are amazing! It is also very cool to see GW pull off another Iconic title like Warhammer Quest and update it. To go along with the Silver Tower, GW is also releasing a phone app to track your Heroes in the game, plus pay to play bonus stuff. The best feature is a hero creator, you can use with any model in your collection. Black Library is releasing a companion novella Labyrinth of the Lost to go along with the game as well.
Contents: Paint Splatter
This issue of Paint Splatter shows a how to paint the Darkoath Chieftain and Tzaangor models. The skin schemes used for both are are pretty interesting, but everything else you have seen before.

Contents: The Trial of Hysh
As is typical with GW board game releases we get a run through of how the game plays and like the ones before we get a boring narrative that doesn’t really sell us on the product being peddled. Still, one can gleam through the sidebars actual rules and how the game is played. The game seems very dice heavy as certain rolls cause certain events/triggers, along with determining just how much each Hero can do in a particular turn.
Here is a collection of rules for using the Hero models in a regular game of Age of Sigmar.
Next Issue Hint: The Heroic Adventures Continue…
Issue #120 is a $4 advertisement for one GW product, so if you like that product you might get something out of this issue, otherwise steer clear.
