Ok, so we did this with Warhammer Conquest when the contents were leaked. That article has been our most popular post ever written. I guess it’s clear that people want a repository showing all of the contents per issue. So now we are doing the same with Mortal Realms Magazine. This article will regularly be updated to show the full contents list of Mortal Realms Magazine issues. for now, it is mostly a placeholder. If anywhere leaks the full contents we’ll be sure to let you know.

Mortal Realms Magazine FAQ
For anyone who is new to the magazine or even the hobby in general, I’ve done a quick FAQ below based on our experience with Warhammer Conquest. This contains lots of useful info, even for those who have been around for a while.
Is Mortal Realms Magazine released yet?
The Release Date for Issue 1 is January 8th 2020
What is Mortal Realms Magazine?
Mortal Realms is a Partworks Magazine (In that pieces are released with each issue to make a complete product). With this magazine, you get the parts to build and paint 2 armies of miniatures from Games Workshop’s Tabletop wargame, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
What are the expected Contents of Mortal Realms?
So far we only have the below image to go on, this is the full contents expected to be received between Issues 1-80. There’s likely to be some paints mixed in for good measure.
What is the best way to subscribe?
This is a hot topic, there are two main ways and a third secret way. Below we will look at the different ways to subscribe to Mortal Realms.
Subscribe directly with Hachette by clicking subscribe now on their website. With this method, you will be sent 4 issues every 4 weeks and will be charged around the same time that the issues despatch.
With Warhammer Conquest, the 4 issues were normally despatched halfway between the issues in the stores. For example, if you’re package contains issues 5-8. You will get them shortly after issues 5 & 6 are released in stores, but before issues 7 & 8 (roughly). However, due to delays in Warhammer Conquest deliveries from Hachette, the boxes are now arriving in-line with the issues arriving in stores. So by the time, your issues arrive, people who buy from local newsagents may have already had them all already.
With this option, you also have to deal with Hachette’s terrible customer service if you ever have a problem.
Subscribe with your local newsagent. They will manage your subscription and you simply need to collect your issue from them every week. Normally on a Wednesday however with Warhammer Conquest, we had reports of some newsagents releasing the issues earlier in the week.
This method can have its’s drawbacks. make sure you trust your newsagent. in our Facebook groups, we have seen reports of Newsagents claiming that they did not get any copies of certain (high-in-demand) issues. These are also the issues that turned up in droves on eBay.
By subscribing at your trusted newsagent, you are unlikely to get the extras which Hachette provide in deliveries (not an issue, remember there are 4 “issues” per “delivery”) 1, 3, 4, 5 & 7. Nor will you get the binders or art books (if there are any with Mortal realms) which you are charged extra for. Though we have had reports in our facebook groups that some newsagents have provided the binders at least.
Option 3: The best way to subscribe to Mortal Realms
This one didn’t occur to many of us until recently but ended up the best of both options above. I actually cancelled my Warhammer Conquest subscription with Hachette to subscribe this way. The method is to subscribe with Forbidden Planet.
To be clear straight away, with this method you will not get the extra gifts in deliveries 1, 3, 4, 5 & 7. Nor will you get the binders and (if they have them) art books you are charged extra for. But bear with us.
What we learned from Warhammer Conquest is that Forbidden Planet already sells the issues 50p cheaper, at £7.49, rather than the £7.99 RRP. We could get the same discount with Mortal Realms. Subscribing with Forbidden Planet will get you your issues delivered to your door weekly. You’re charged weekly, you can pick and choose the issues and quantities you like. Oh, and this makes it available anywhere outside of the UK!
It took people a while to figure this out, but the way it works is as follows. Go to Forbidden Planet. This link will take to to the Mortal Realms page showing all of the available issues. Add all the issues you want to your basket. Ther is a postage cost, but this is how it works. postage for 1 issue is £2. 2 issues is £3. And 3 or more issues is £5.50. That’s the cap. if you order 3 issues or 300 issues, the postage cost will never rise above £5.50. (I’ve spoken with them on the phone to confirm this).
As the issues are all 50p cheaper anyway, so long as you order 11 issues in one go, you will break even. Order more and you are saving money.
Can’t afford to pay upfront? Don’t worry, you don’t…
When you place the order, you will not be charged immediately, you will only be charged when the issues you’ve ordered become available. When your first delivery is dispatched, you will be charged the full postage amount. However, after this, you will only be charged per week as the issues are despatched and there will be no further postage costs.
The final benefit is that these issues are normally despatched the Friday before the issue is due to be released. so you can get the issues as soon as Saturday or Monday before the issues are released each week on a Wednesday.
What Countries is Mortal Realms Magazine Available in?
Mortal Realms, Like Warhammer Conquest, is released First in the UK. Mortal Realms, however, is being Trialed in Spain alongside the UK so those territories may release at the same time. However, if you subscribe with Forbidden Planet as noted above, this is available globally.
What free gits are there with Mortal Realms?
Throughout the early stage of Mortal Realms (up to delivery 7, which is around issues 26/28) you will get the following free gifts.
- 1 – Plastic Glue, Sprue Cutters and the end of a Mould Line Remover
- 3 – Your first Binder (the other 3 will cost £7.99 each)
- 4 – Citadel Painting Handle
- 5 – Large Base Brush, Medium Shade Brush and a Small Layer Brush
- 7 – A Glass tankard
Remember, a “delivery” is a box containing 4 issues. Delivery 7 is not Issue 7
Is there a model exclusive to Mortal Realms?
Yes, Xandria Azurebolt – A Stormcast Knight Incantor. She will be in issue 5 of the magazine.
Is there any Premium Wargear?
Probably, however, with Warhammer Conquest, this amounted to no more than a cardboard playing mat, a cardboard box and some exclusive coloured dice (well, 3 of them as there were 3 different ones delivered throughout). Buyer Beware: Many people are happy with these, but many are left feeling short-changed.
Are there any Hidden Charges?
Not really hidden, if you read the small print. After the First Binder, Hachette will charge you £7.99 for each of the 3 additional binders they send you throughout the series.
There will likely be some exclusive gear too. with Warhammer Conquest, this was some books. When these are available Hachette will auto-enrol you to receive one and will charge you for it. You can opt-out of you are quick (but some people have accidentally had their whole subscription cancelled when doing this). You can also send them back free of charge for a full refund.
Mortal Realms Contents Per Issue Breakdown
Below we list the contents of each Mortal Realms issue, the cost of the issue and the retail cost of the contents. this will help to work out the value of each issue and how much you would save by purchasing the issues vs the products in-store.
Note: I have compares the issues prices to the lowest priced directly comparable individual product. Many of these are available as single sets but you can get them cheaper in boxed games. To directly compare the value of each issue, I am comparing the contents to the individually priced sets so you can compare that issue to the cost if you were to get the exact same contents (and no more) from Games Workshop Directly.
