White Dwarf is Games Workshop's premium Warhammer magazine, packed with amazing content each month such as new rules and background, short stories, regular columns, special guests and more.

Since January 2020, the magazine is again issued under a serial number, given the numbering from previous months.



  • Letters, painting advice, and beautifully painted miniatures. Also, solo play stories and a well travelled army.

Worlds of Warhammer

  • The history of the Mortal Realms (part I), as told by master chronologist Phil Kelly.

Outside the Studio

  • We talk about the models we’ve painted and the games we’ve played while working from home over the summer.

Warhammer 40,000

Echoes from the Warp

  • Warhammer 40,000 overlord Stu Black joins us to talk about abstraction and realism in games design.

  • White Dwarf’s home-grown Chapter gets its very own Index Astartes article, complete with exclusive matched play rules.

Argovon Campaign: The Apocalypse of Foronika

  • The Argovon campaign continues on the Blackstone-rich world of Foronika. This is a mission

The Woe of Choice

  • The war on Foronika is balanced on a knife edge, as Major General Valdu is only too aware in this short story.

Battle Report: The Comet’s Call

  • The skaven take on the Kharadron Overlords for possession of a comet. But where it will land is anyone’s guess…

Heroes of the Hinterlands

  • When the world descends into Chaos, sometimes you just have to make war alone. Here we present rules for solo games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Rules of Engagement

  • Jervis joins us to talk about rules semantics. Just don’t get wholly within 2".
