Fanatic Magazine Issue #10

Fanatic Magazine Issue #10Got hold of the last paper based issue of Fanatic Magazine as from now on it is an online magazine.

Issue #10 is similar to the previous issues with ample enough content for the other games but never enough for a single game (and it doesn’t matter which game you play).

This issue we look at the Thorian faction in Inquisitor and the Scavvy gangs leave their mark on your games of Necromunda. There are also new rules for Blood Bowl, Battlefleet Gothic, Epic Armageddon and Mordheim.

Some nice pics in #10 of Epic stuff though.

Still missing issue #8 though…

Capitol Imperialis

At UK GamesDay 2004 the Fantic table had a file full of pictures, here are some of the Capitol Imperialis.

here’s another one…

one more…

This is a photo of the original model.

I am not sure if I like the new concept which seems a little too gothic for the Imperial Guard.

Anyway with the re-organisation of Fanatic we may never actually see a new model!

Fanatic Magazine Issue #4

Finally managed to get a copy, even though it was hidden…

When I was last in a Games Workshop store (a couple of weeks back) I did ask if they had a copy of issue #4 of Fanatic magazine and they said it was out in a week.

Last week at GamesDay though there were copies on the Fanatic Studio to peruse but none for sale. I did try and convince Fanatic to give me a review copy for the website, but they must have had hundreds of people asking that as they gave me a flat no!

Popped into a local Games Workshop store today and couldn’t see a copy out, so I asked if they had it in, it was, hidden behind some copies of the Warhammer comic behind the counter…. obviously well set out and easy to find for the casual purchaser who doesn’t know it exists!

When asked why this was the case the answer was they they didn’t want to hide it, as they got their copies free already…. didn’t make sense then, doesn’t make sense now!

As for the contents, the Epic Siege Army is covered as is Nurgle for Warmaster, more information from the GW site:

In this issue there are tactics for fielding either an Imperial or Chaos fleet in BFG. The Imperial Guards Baran Siegemasters arrive in Epic Armageddon and Blood Bowl hits the streets with the rules for Street bowl games. The hordes of Nurgle slime their way onto the Battlefield in Warmaster, and the lights are out in Necromunda with rules for Blind fighting and can Inquisitor Kessel escape from the clutches of Witch Hunter Tyrus in Inquisitor? All this and more including the regular news and features.
