If you don't think your Netflix subscription gives you enough Space Marines, Games Workshop now offers a solution: Warhammer +. The new subscription service, which will launch this August, includes a little bit of everything, including Warhammer cartoons, in-house amateur videos, access to a tour of e-books and magazines, and apps. 40k in Age of Sigmar.
When I saw the ad, I was hoping it was a way to save a few cents as I continue to add to my armies of Space Wolves and Necron, but unfortunately there isn’t much for people who just want heavier troops for games table. Instead, it's a bag of auxiliary stuff, although you'll also get a model at the end of the first year, if you stay that long.
Here is the official list of sweets:
- Lots of Warhammer animation
- Weekly Warhammer home entertainment shows
- A digital tour of classic Warhammer publications and White Dwarf issues
- Full access to Warhammer apps (i.e. Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar, with much to come).
- Premium access to our official events
- Exclusive subscriber offers
- A free exclusive Citadel miniature worth at least GBP 25 each year
- Access to a second exclusive thumbnail of subscribers
There is one model for AoS and another for 40k, but to get both you will have to pay a little cash for the second. Still, it will be exclusive to subscribers, so it’s definitely worth considering if you’re playing both games. They are very attractive models, but unfortunately not for the armies I play. Give us a little love at Space Wolves, GW.
Waiting for a whole year to get the best out of it honestly doesn’t sound so tempting, but there’s still a lot going on in this sub-topic if you’re interested in Warhammer universes beyond games. The service will launch with two animated shows, Angels of death i Hammer and bolter, with more episodes every Wednesday. There are also exclusive Warhammer TV programs, including painting guides to help you delve deeper into your technique. I could definitely use one hand to make my werewolf faces look less like Cronenbergian nightmares.
As for the literature, there is a selection of Warhammer novels to devour, as well as the subsequent catalog of White Dwarf Magazine from 2020. For a long time I avoided Warhammer books, but recently I took a pile and I regret the misunderstanding. There is crap, sure, but also some great stuff. It’s just hard to review everything. We hope that the selection offered by Warhammer + has more of the latter. If you’re trying to figure out where to start, specifically with 40,000 things, check out Jody’s list of the top 40,000 Warhammer novels.
The service will launch on August 25 for $ 4.99 / $ 5.99 per month. There is also an annual subscription that gives you two months free. Unfortunately, even if you pay annually, you will still have to wait a year for your luxury model.
