I have decided to shell out and go for the Stormbringer magazine. This will allow me to bump up the numbers of Orruks I have at a fairly substantial rate.
But I’ve been wondering what I should do with the Stormcast. How should I paint them? What should I do when I have painted them etc etc etc.
So my first question on the matter of the subscription is would you all like me to follow the colour guides and painting guides given in the magazine’s or should I use a different set of colours for each army? Also, should I follow the guides precisely to show how the collection progresses using the guides from the magazine?
If we decide to go for a different colour scheme to the guides should I produce my own weekly guides on how I used the paints supplied?
Hachette have recently announced another Age of Sigmar part build, which will be their fourth working with Games Workshop following the successes of their previous collaborations.
Stormbringer is based around the Dominion box set, with a lot of additions (yes, including dragons!). The main antagonists of the series will be the Orruks against the Stormcast Eternals.
While aimed at attracting new members to the hobby, these part work series are always a great way to pick up some of the models you need for a lot cheaper than the RRP.
As with the previous collections, they’ll be 80 issues with the first two priced at £2.99 and £5.99 respectively followed by £8.99 an issue after that. Like the previous collections they’ll also be issued weekly.
The first four issues include:
Issue 1 – Orruk Killaboss with Stab-Grot and Knight-Arcanum (and dice) and battle mat) for £2.99
Issue 2 – 10x Gutrippas with stikkas for £5.99
Issue 3 – 5x Stormcast Vindicators for £8.99
Issue 4 – A paint special with Retributor Armour, Leadbelcher, Kantor Blue and Orruk Flesh all included.
That’s great value for money if you collect either of those armies already! Here at Woehammer I’m considering signing up for the magazine myself to give us two ‘Studio’ armies at the end of the run.
For the premium subscription (£2 per issue) you’ll also get four additional magazine with extra models. These being Yndrasta, Killaboss on Great Gnashtoof, Grundstok Gunhauler and Dankboss Troggoth.
While it’s available in newsagents from today, you’ll only be able to get your hands on the first four issues until they confirm there is enough interest in the subscription. So you likely won’t receive any other issues until the Summer.
