@ MyeníTal

Thank you!  That really means a lot to me! :)

And I canít wait to see what they do with the KOís second book too.  Theyíre such a cool army imo, but they arenít performing the way they should.  But Iím confident that our time will come again!  8)

@ Alienscar

Iím chuffed to bits that my like my KO scheme that much! :)

Iíve had doubts about tuis scheme since the day I created it, but youíve helped me burry them. :D

You want to know the inspiration for these guys?  Tik Tok, from Return To Oz.  That green, fantastical, mechanical astheical felt like a natural fit for the Overlords.  Plus, thereís ĎVictorian Tilesí, green ceramic tiles that are often found in London.  Very steampunk.  Plus, green isnít really featured in any of the named sky ports, and if youíre doing your own, might as well go all out! :D

Also, another update:






Heís nearly done.  Just the skulls on his relic, his lieutenant stripe, his sword hilt and base to do. 

Then three more characters to do, and the starter set models are all finished! :D

I will score this issue 2.5 out of 5

TL:DR You will like this issue only if you like reading interviews about people you have no interest in and looking at painted models.

This issue is better than Febís, but not as good as Januaryís. In my opinion this issue is let down by having too many interview/exposition style pieces.
 
I donít know what other readers of WD think, but I have little to no interest in the various interviews that appear to be a monthly staple of this iteration of WD.

The Guest Editor interviews I find especially baffling. This run of monthly WD is only three issues old and it has already had three different editors. Surely the magazine should have had time to settle in before guest editors are allowed to take over.

I have always thought that an editorís efforts should be seen rather than read about. As long as an editor is doing his or her job well I do not see a need to know anything about their personal background.

Additionally there is little point to having guest editors when the content of the magazine does not change. There is less of a point in having guest editors if the only reason for having them is to include an interview with them.

For the third time it is my opinion that Worlds of Warhammer is once again the weakest article in White Dwarf. So far we have read about what it is like to write Warhammer stories, how to name your models and now how to create a map. I am plainly missing something as I struggle to see the point of this article.

A Tale of Four Warlords is back, but after the last efforts I will not be expecting anything other than a painting fest with the odd battle report thrown in. The challenge is over a year this time instead of the normal six months, so hopefully we might get a bit more than just a painting article in disguise.

The challenge is Vigilus based and the armies that have been chosen are Genestealer Cults, Black Legion, Orks and Raven Guard.

I was looking forward to the article about points values (Rules of Engagement) and it was okay, but overall I think it suffers from being too vague. In an article about how points are calculated it is disappointing to read that the method used is too complex to include in the article.

After reading the article I am left with the feeling that they havenít really got an accurate method of calculating points.

This Monthís Battle Report was the usual mix of narrative and turn information laid out in a non-linear fashion that make it hard to read and difficult to enjoy.

The painting article, Fantastical Realms, is still concentrating on how to build and paint your AoS models to match the Mortal Realm that they live and fight in. This month the Realm is Ghryan.

I can see how this article could be of value to some people, but after three of them I find them to be a bit repetitive.

Realms of Battle made an appearance in this issue and for the most part I enjoyed it even though it was biased towards how to paint stuff rather than how to build stuff.

Glory Points (Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault) continues to be one of my favourite articles.

This month was all about how warbands are created. The only thing that let this article down was that it is very similar in content to the Rules of Engagement, so it was a bit like reading the same article twice.

Echoes from the Warp is a bit strange this month. Instead of being about the rules and tactics of 40K it described Robin Cruddaceís visit to this yearís NOVA Open. It is a bit lightweight in content and reads like a Ďwhat I did this summerí school essay.

The Index Imperialis that provides information and new rules for Assassins was a really good read. As ever with GW fluff some of it leaves me confused.

Part of the history for the Culexus states that a number of the High Lords wanted Pariahs destroyed. Before a decree could be issued the Adeptus Mechanicus ended the Pariah project and claimed they had executed all of the specimens. Instead of executing all of them they set up a secret fortress that became the Culexus Temple.

All well and good, but as Assassins can only be released for a mission following a two-thirds majority vote by the High Lords it is not clear how the same High Lords that ordered Pariahs executed can then sanction them for a mission without blinking an eye.

Blood Bowl also appears again in this issue and once again I find these articles to be a really enjoyable and interesting read.

Unless I have misunderstood the article Goblins sound like a difficult team to coach.

Wrath and Glory and The Buried Dagger are both interview articles. One being about the new 40k roleplaying game and the other a chat with Horus Heresy author James Swallow.

I am really not sure what to say about this type of article. The Wrath & Glory one in particular seems pointless as you learn next to nothing about the game itself.

I also managed to finally base these minis, months behind schedule:



I have said elsewhere how I do not like the Overlord aesthetic, but your colour scheme actually makes me look at them differently.

I have said it before and I will say it again, for me, your colour scheme really makes the Overlords look like what I imagine a dwarf would look like.

Man, I'm loving these Celestial Lions the more I see them. That command group have such a regal air about them, in no small part to the color scheme you chose. They might not be finished yet, but they look awesome!

I'm also loving those Kharadron Overlords. It's funny that you took those images in that low light, because the highlights that were hard to see before are definitely plain to see now.


Now that Games Workshop has made it official that all of the older battletomes are being updated, I'm curious as to how the Overlords will be treated. I'm hopeful, GW seems to be making a really good point to take feedback for their armies! :)

Just adds to 40k setting :) Looking good so far.

Thanks magenb!  :)

Whoa they might be WIP, but they already look fantastic. Shame there isn't a little more light, but the gloom somehow suits the subject matter 

Thanks Alienscar!  Iíll be able to bring them back into the other room (with better light) very soon.  ;D

I also managed to finally base these minis, months behind schedule:





Eurgh, sorry for the lighting.  I could have waited, but I just wanted to show that Iím still actively painting away.

Despite this however, KO are still on the backburner until they get a new book.  I played a game with them last night against the Deepkin.  It wasnít a complete massacre, but I was still doomed from the start.  :P

Thanks for the advice Alienscar.  :)

Even though Iím not 100% on their markings and badgers, I decided to jump right in and start doing the Lieutenants anyway.  Hereís todayís efforts:










Wip of course.  Itís also quite overcast today, so sorry if the pictures are a little gloomy.
