Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine Contents List – Issues 1-80

Please Note: This site uses affiliate links. Our affiliates are shown in the sidebar on the homepage

Ok, so we did this with Warhammer Conquest when the contents were leaked. We did it again with Mortal Realms. And once again we did it with Warhammer Imperium. Those articles have been our most popular posts 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 Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine. This article will regularly be updated to show the full contents list of Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine issues.

Despite all that, people will still complain, saying “the title is misleading”. Well, at least I told you how it works in the opening paragraphs because that’s easier than updating the article’s title every 4 weeks and waiting another 8 weeks for google to show the update. (not my fault how the internet works), but complain away guys, I’m used to it.

Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine FAQ

For anyone who is new to the magazine or even the hobby in general, we’ve done a quick FAQ below based on our experience with Warhammer Conquest, Mortal Realms & Warhammer Imperium. This contains lots of useful info, even for those who have been around for a while.

Is Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine released yet?

No, it’s just a 5 week Trial Release.

It’s reportedly available in some Newsagents, Supermarkets and possibly WH Smiths. In Essex and Middlesborough.

The trial means that the publisher just testing the waters with the subscription to see if it is viable for the full 80-issue run. They will determine how many subscribers they generate from this small release and that will inform them how many copies of the magazine they need to create in order to deliver it across the country at the end of the year.

Many of us feel this approach is a bit archaic, I’m confident that, knowing this community, more people will learn about this magazine from various social media outlets than from the release in stores.

I mean, we are wargamers. In the most, if we can avoid going outside, we will.

Honesty I want to know how many people subscribe to this after watching TV ads vs how many people subscribe after following our coverage. (then I want to know how much it costs to publish a TV advert).

Joking aside, here’s what we know.

The UK Release Date for Issue 1 (trial) was February 16th 2022

Based on the time between the Imperium Trial and full release, we expect the full release date to be around August 24th 2022.

What is Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine?

Warhammer Stormbringer 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 opposing armies of miniatures from Games Workshop’s Tabletop wargame, Warhammer: 40,000.

What are the expected Contents of Warhammer Stormbringer?

Oh wow, coming out with the big questions straight up, are we!

Well, here you go, you get all of this;

home-intro-army

An extension of how Warhammer Imperium was presented. Instead of having 2 specific armies. you now have two Grand Alliances to face off. These are the Alliance of Order and the Alliance of Destruction. foregoing the Orders of Death and Chaos which are further factions available within the Warhammer Age of Sigmar universe.

Within the Alliance of Order, we get the Stormcast Eternals, Kharadron Overlords and Sylvaneth.

The Alliance of Destruction in this collection features the Orruk Warclans, the Gloomspite Gitz and a Giant from the Sons of Behemat faction.

If you want a full breakdown of every model in this set, we’ve done the entire breakdown, and you can see it by following this link

Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine - Full Collection Savings Breakdown - Featured

Here’s the top-level view of what the magazine costs, vs the value of the individual (where possible) models you get in it.

GBPUSDCADEURAUD
Total Value£1,331.75£2,137.35£2,612.08£1,700.60£3,463.69
Total Cost£710.20£1,109.00£788.20
Total Savings£621.55£1,028.35£912.40
Percentage Saved46.67%48.11%53.65%

So, on the surface, the immediate savings are a couple of percent up when compared to Imperium. Below I will dive into the individual elements. And bear in mind, I worked this out before the March 2022 price increase to some sets.

Savings after the standard 20% discount from various FLGS and Online Hobby Stores.

To work this out, i just deducted 20% off the Total Value fields.

GBPUSDCADEURAUD

Total Savings£355.20£600.88£572.28
Percentage Saved33.34%35.14%42.06%

It’s a bit of a raw and nasty way of doing it., but it does give you some indication of a more realistic comparison due to many of us shopping online.

What is the best way to subscribe?

This is a bit of a hot topic, there are two main ways… And a third (IMHO better) way. Below we will look at the different ways to subscribe to Warhammer Stormbringer.

Now, as this is a Trial run initially, the only way to subscribe until the mag is released properly is option 1. and whether you are in the catchment area or not, you won’t actually get any issues (or charges) for several months.

Option 1:

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.

Bear in mind a “delivery” as they refer to it on the website, is 4 issues. It;s released weekly but delivered to you in packs of 4 – sometimes with some extras.

It’s also worth noting that, Subscribing with Hachette is the only way to get your hands on the 4 premium packs at an extra £2 per issue.

Option 2:

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.

By subscribing at your “trusted” newsagent, you are unlikely to get the extras that Hachette provides in certain deliveries (not an issue, remember there are 4 “issues” per “delivery”). Nor will you get the binders or art subscriber extras that you are charged for.

Option 3: The best way to subscribe to Warhammer Stormbringer

This one didn’t occur to many of us until well into Conquest’s subscription run but ended up the best of both options above. This method is to subscribe with Forbidden Planet.

Subscribing with (Or really just buying from) Forbidden Planet will get your issues delivered to your door weekly rather than every 4 weeks. You’re charged weekly, you can pick and choose the issues and quantities you like.

There is a postage cost, but this is how it works.

Postage for ordering 1 issue is £2, 2 issues are £3. And 3 or more issues is £5.50. But that’s the cap. If you order 3 issues or 300 issues (They don’t need to be the same issues), you could order issues 1-10, 10 copies of issue 1, or any mix in between. so long as the total quantity of issues in a single order is 3 or more), the postage cost will never rise above £5.50.

Example only, I’m not going to buy 300 copies of issue 53!

As the issues are all 50p cheaper anyway, if you order 11 issues in one go, you will break even. Order more in a single order and you are saving money.

When the first issue of the order is despatched you are charged for the issue and the full £5.50 cost of postage for your whole order, After that you never pay postage again and just pay for the issues weekly until that order is complete.

What free gits are there with Warhammer Stormbringer?

Yep, once again there are 7 free gifts planned, similar but slightly different to those in previous magazines.

They are as follows

  • 1st delivery – FREE issue and FREE Citadel modelling kit
  • 3rd delivery – FREE collection binder and dividers
  • 4th delivery – FREE Citadel paint brush set (Now Synthetic STC Brushes, See our review)
  • 5th delivery – FREE Exclusive Heat Changing Mug
  • 7th delivery – FREE Citadel Paint Rack

The above however is just planned and is subject to change at this time. The Mortal Realms Freemium Content changed between the Trial and actual release – And I still want that Sigmar Pint Glass.

The clippers are a bit naff but better than nothing (see our “Best Clippers” guide). the mould line remover is half a tool and whilst the glue is necessary. My personal preference is Tamiya Extra Thin Cement as it has a fine-brush applicator, not a spout.

The Citadel Paint handle has been a staple of free gifts in these releases, but now we get a Citadel Paint Rack instead. IMHO one of the most useless wastes of plastic I’ve ever seen.. It’s just a honeycomb grid you wedge your paints into. This isn’t big enough to store all the paints you’ll get in this collection.

The most appealing item is that heat changing mug. So long as it makes it to the final release. My last two Warhammer heat changing mugs have faded and look nasty.

Is there any Premium Wargear?

Yes, but they are staying rather quiet on what exactly you get this time.

To get these premium kits, you will need to subscribe directly with Hachette. It will cost £2 extra per issue and they charge you monthly. As below your first kit comes with “Issue” 15. Which is actually “Delivery” 5.

The but that’s already made several people uncomfortable with these offerings is the term “+more”. With Mortal Realms and Imperium, they showcased the full contents of the Premium kits.

Here when they say “+ more”. We know some of the more already (which I’ll detail below), but if that’s it, it makes premium feel far less appealing this time.

I hope when it comes to the real release, they are ready to share exactly what comes in these premium kits. Because already the online reaction to these is a collective (OzzyManReviews style) Yeah, Nah!

Warhammer Stormbringer Premium Kit 1 – Yndrasta The Celestial Spear (+more)

Yndrasta Comes on a sprue with 3 Annihilators and a Knight-Vexillor. As originally released in the boxed set from Dominion.

CHAOS SPACE MARINES

Since Dominion has finally gone out of stock at GW, the only way to get this sprue now is with the £68 Thunderstrike Command Sprue Exclusive to the GW online store.

Whilst the price of this Sprue is £68 RRP. (over half the price of the Domion box itself) and you are getting it for the equivalent of £40 in this premium kit. Enough people are unhappy with the price of this sprue in the first place to make us expect more than just 1 sprue from this “premium” kit.

The fact that they have not been clear about this will be a detriment. It’s like to turn more people off to premium this time than encourage them to go with it.

Warhammer Stormbringer Premium Kit 2 – Kruleboyz Killaboss (+ more)

Everything I said about the above sprue could be Echoed here. Exactly the same scenario. This Killaboss on Great Gnashtoof once again comes on a sprue with 2 extra unit types. In this case, that’s a Murknob with Belcha-banana (typo, but I’m not changing it) and 3 Man-skewer Boltboyz.

TYRANIDS

Again this Sprue, now known as Kruleboyz Boss-Krew, is £68 and originally came in Dominion. I’ll say it again, this sprue and the one above, together, (£136) cost mode than Dominion itself! (£125) A set that had 8 other sprues in it.

Once again, if this is all you get in the premium kit. People will be audibly unhappy.

Warhammer Stormbringer Premium Kit 3 – Grunstok Gunhauler (+ more)

This is a cool kit and will go well with the Kharadron you get in the collection.

T'AU EMPIRE

It’s hard to assume what the + more is in here. perhaps they will fill out the force with additional items from the Start Collecting Kharadron Overlords kit. We already know we get the Grundstok Thunderers from that box in the collection. But we could see the 3 Skywardens and Endrinmaster

But that still feels a bit light. when compared to Mortal Realms and Imperium’s premium Kit

Warhammer Stormbringer Premium Kit 4 – OrksDankhold Troggoth (+ more)

This is just an awesome kit. Gross, But awesome. The Dankhold Troggoth has numerous build options and will be a welcome centrepiece amongst the Gloomspite Gitz. The value however is (currently, at the time of writing) £40, which is the same as you would be paying for the premium kit at £2 per issue.

ORKS

Unlike the Kharadron Overlords, there is no Start Collecting Set with the Dankhold Troggoth in it. But there aren’t many Gloomspit Gitz models left to choose from. I expect we’ll see the Rockgut Troggoth kit or the Mangler Squigs. (my money is on the former as the price is lower and there are more models.

Delivery Schedule

Hachette has advertised that this is a weekly magazine, but if you subscribe with Hachette you will get a delivery of 4 issues every four weeks, not weekly (again Forbidden Planet sends them and charges you weekly). Just noting this again as it often confuses people.

As the subscriber extras are advertised as coming in certain “deliveries”, below is a brief breakdown of the deliveries and what issues come with them

This is the UK Schedule. If I added all the countries the page would be huge and nobody wants that…

The below also assumes you start your subscription with issue 1. You do have the option to subscribe from later issues but it messes up the below schedule.

What Countries is Warhammer Stormbringer Magazine Available in?

As of now, it is only confirmed in the UK, but Expect this to come to numerous European countries, Possibly the US and Australia, depending on the popularity of his in the UK and existing collections in other regions.

Is there a model exclusive to Warhammer Stormbringer?

Yep, here she is!

Image

Not the best pic I know, but this is the only unidentifiable model in the full-collection image.

The model will likely be a hero of some kind and is based on the Praetor sculps. Assumed as she has a halberd.

Are there any Hidden Charges?

Not really hidden, if you read the small print. After the First Binder, Hachette will charge you 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 (mostly Silver templars) books. With Mortal Realms, it was a 3 part Novella.

When these are available Hachette will auto-enrol you to receive one and will charge you for it. You can opt out if you are quick.

But if you end up with them and you didn’t want them, You can also send them back (Freepost) for a full refund. (make sure you get proof of postage, however).

No, it’s not a scam, it’s in the terms and conditions when you sign up. Please stop complaining about it.
