White Dwarf WD346 October 2008 Contents Review

White Dwarf Review (WD346)

A good mag if you're into lasers and tanks but not so great if you're into swords and crossbows.

First and foremost I must warn you that October's mag does NOT contain all the nice piccies, fluff and adverts for Warriors of Chaos. Apparently, that's coming next month (november).

For anyone upset by this news (like I was), I have included a nice big chaos piccie below (click to enlarge - a lot !)

Fantasy Battle Fans

I'm afraid the only highlight this month is the 6 page articles on raiding. It's part II of the raiding feature that began last month and this one includes rules for pillaging. There are 4 suggested scenarios (and a rules page for each); The Dawn Raid, Coastal Raid, Spoils of War and Revenge.

It makes for a nice, if short, read.

There a re 3 new books from Black Library, one is Gotrek & Felix : Elf Slayer (I'm always up for a bit of Elf slaying since I turned my allegiances to Count Vlad)

For Warhammer 40k Fans - you have a treat in store

this might be the mag you've been waiting for inbetween all those pesky annoying Fantasy Battle Army book updates. I don't play 40k so this is a best effort at the contents, here goes:-
