Warhammer 40,000 Imperium launches

Warhammer 40,000 Imperium is the latest in the series of ‘buy an issue a week’ magazines Games Workshop have been doing in partnership with Hachette. Each week you can find a new issue in your participating newsagent, or else opt to receive a monthly delivery direct from Hachette.

The two series to date have each consisted of 80 issues. Warhammer 40,000 Imperium launched in the UK on 25 August, and will come to the US in early 2022. Other markets are yet to be confirmed. From memory these launched in Australia around 5-8 months after the UK launch.

Here’s fuzzy snip of the collection, from the Hachette website:

The magazine issues will mainly feature Space Marines and Necrons, with some terrain and Sisters of Battle models added too. As with the two other Hachette series, some issues will have paints and brushes rather than models.

I bought a few issues of the previous Warhammer 40,000 magazine to fill out my Plague Marine collection, and have picked up precisely one issue of the Age of Sigmar Mortal Realms magazine. Should I complete my miniatures collection before this releases in Australia, I could see myself picking up each issue, just to see if I can paint everything in time for the next issue’s release.

    Credit where credit is due to GW – I’m a huge fan of these magazines and I feel like they make the models and the lore a lot more accessible to people without a ton of disposable income on hand. I won’t be able to get it because it won’t reach Canada, (and because I’m still trying to spend less on GW in general), but I think this is a great move and I hope it expands past the UK and US.

      Yes, overall I think these series are a good idea. A friend of mine collected every issue of the Lord of the Rings set back in the day (2005) and enjoyed the experience.
