BoK Reviews: White Dwarf Issue #114

White Dwarf Issue #114: The War Continues

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

The only major release is more “fun” with Sigmar, as the next Realmgate Wars Book called Godbeasts. I guess there is some Shadows of the Colossus action going on in Warhammer now. The Black Library gets in the action with Black Rift for Sigmar, but the Black Library also releasing a hardback version of the amazing Daemonifuge graphic novels. The originals trace back to the late 90s so to have the stuff updated in one place is fantastic! GW is also releasing some crazy expensive Artificer Brushes, at $23 each!

Contents: Paint Splatter

Paint Splatter is all about promoting the new artificer brushes, but no little showcase is going to prove to me, a average painter, to drop $23 on a single brush.

What is GW saying?

Released April, 2nd 2016

Archaon strikes back! White Dwarf 114 is here and with it the next phase of the Realmgate Wars as Archaon attempts to wrestle the initiative back in the war for the Mortal Realms. We take a look at this next installment – The Realmgate Wars: Godbeasts (but what is a godbeast, we hear you cry – of course we have the answer) – plus there’s a look at taking your layering to the next level in Paint Splatter, a new Army of the Month in Sons of the Death Lord, and – wait for it – an exclusive new mission for Deathwatch: Overkill, one calling upon the Scions of the Militarum Tempestus, no less. Truly, it’s an issue with something for everyone.

Contents: Sons of the Death Lord

We get a little preview of the army of the month in the latest issue of Visions. It is Death Guard army by Paul Rudge. It is 30k goodness with the classic Death Guard paint scheme. Paul throws in other allied factions like Imperial Knights and Dark Mechanicus to fill out the giant scope of his army.


Contents: Treachery Revealed

This is White Dwarf at its best with actual useful content. If you own Deathwatch Overkill you will happily add in Militarium Tempestus to the battle. This extra mission gives rules for using various Militarum models and units. It gives us the terrible details on how the Deathwatch were tipped off about something not right inside the bowels of Ghosar Quintus.


Contents: Children of Decay

Along with the Death Guard army, we get even more Nurgle taint with Steve Powerman’s Rotbringers army. I have to say I like this army better than the Death Guard one as it shows off a crisper look and feel.


Contents: The Week In…

Godbeasts, Godbeasts, boring, and useless tidbits, exactly what you expect from this section of White Dwarf.

Next Issue Hint: We Celebrate 30 Years of Space Marine!

Final Verdict

Issue #114, while half the content is Sigmar related this issue does a great job of balancing it with free 40k content and amazing looking armies.
