April White Dwarf Preview

Matt: Hello, all! With Rhuairidh away at AdeptiCon and a new issue of White Dwarf just around the corner (it’s out next Friday, 6th of April), the Warhammer Community team asked me to offer a little preview of what’s in store. Well, the short version is “Loads of stuff, something for everyone!” Here’s a few of the highlights:

You can probably guess from the cover that Forgebane makes an appearance this issue, with a Battle Report and Designers’ Notes for the new Armiger Knights. In the Age of Sigmar, the big news this month is, of course, the emergence of the Idoneth Deepkin, and we go deeper (see what I did there? Who’s groaning?) with the Ultimate Guide to… the Idoneth Deepkin! Check it out for eight pages of in-depth background introducing this fantastic new faction.

Elsewhere, we plunge into some scenery building, as we teamed up with the Warhammer World Studio team to build a new board for the Realm of Death, the River of Souls. We’ve been getting a lot of requests for more scratch-building and kitbashing of scenery, so we think this article’s going to be very popular with many of you.

Something else we get a lot of requests for is more Middle-earth. Well, we’re happy to oblige, and this month Jay Clare has some ideas for theming your Middle-earth collections. That’s not all, though – we’ve also got two new scenarios featuring Radagast the Brown and two new Battle Companies, including the famed Last Alliance.


And if you’re looking for even more new rules, following on from last month’s rules for Genestealer Cult gangs, we’ve got full rules for Chaos Cult gangs in Necromunda. Who knew that an environment as oppressive, violent and hopeless as the depths of underhive could be such a breeding ground for heretical thoughts? Oh, wait…


And then there’s more a lot more – tactics for the Dark Eldar, the second in our revamped Hall of Fame series, a stunning Imperial Knights army from Gavin Beardsmore, a Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire tournament, and more. You can pre-order the issue from tomorrow, and you’ll find it in stores next Friday. There’s also the digital edition, available via the White Dwarf App – and if you download the App (which is completely free) you can use it to get hold of a free 16-page preview of the new issue each month, too, so why not check it out?

So, enjoy the issue – and let us know what your favourite bits are and what you want to see more of. Until next month…
