I thought it would be a good idea to start a monthly White Dwarf Review as I get the issues early due to my subscription:
The Good Stuff:
A lot of interesting insights about the process of designing the new Grey Knights kits with all involved sculptors; the sprue breakdowns; Jeremy Vetock’s article about different Waaaghs with nice fluff and ideas for house rules; the as always awesome pictures and layout.
What’s In There For Painters and Modellers?
A 4 page Showcase of all Slayer Sword winners 2010; a showcase of the ‘Eavy Metal Grey Knight models with some comments on the techniques used; a modelling workshop with the new plastic PAGK and TAGK along with sprue breakdowns and simple painting techniques; an army workshop with Flesh Tearers; Hall of Heroes with Alan Merret.
Things I Didn’t Like:
Still no ‘Eavy Metal Masterclass since the November 2010 issue; the Flesh Tearers workshop is basically the same as the Blood Angels one two issues ago (and it’s not like this issue is sparse with power armour); the design notes on Grey Knights cover almost no rules at all.
You really have to love Power Armour for this one. This issue isn’t bad, but could have been much better with a more interesting Army Workshop, an ‘Eavy Metal Masterclass and if Mat Ward’s talk about the writing and rules of the Grey Knight codex wouldn’t have been so superficial.5/10

Thank you for the review… I've not bought WD for a while since the Masterclasses stopped…
So a miniature porn issue then. See I loved the Dark Eldar issue when that was released a good spread of articles heavy focus on Dark Eldar to be sure but fair enough and some great painting tips in the workshop (glowing eyes etc)
Great you guys like the review, follow my blog or bookmark to stay updated for the next issues.
@eldaraddict: No Dark Eldar content in this one, the back cover shows a Tomb King artwork indeed (just artwork, no models).
That's unfortunate. I was really hoping for an 'Eavy Metal Masterclass article on the Grey Knights. 🙁

Thanks for the review. Any Dark eldar news inside? I bet Tomb kings is on the inside of the back cover, correct?
