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.


Letters, painting advice, and beautifully painted miniatures. Plus, a mural, a query about vampires, and a fancy Land Raider.

Worlds of Warhammer Butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers - some of the lesser-known professions of the Mortal Realms are discussed in this month’s column.

Inside the Studio We talk about some of the models we’ve painted and the games we’ve played over the last month.


Battle Report: Return to Sanctuary 101 Twenty-three years ago (from White Dwarf 218 in February 1998), the Necrons overwhelmed the Adepta Sororitas at Sanctuary 101. History, it seems, is repeating itself…

Spear of Lightning In this short story, a trio of Librarians from the Atlantian Spears infiltrate an Ork kruiser. They're not prepared for what awaits them on the bridge.
