Games Workshop’s preview is underway come see the next 4 months of releases and 3 codex books that are coming in November.

From Sept 2017 to January 2018, Games Workshop let the cat out of the bag on their upcoming releases around 8pm EST. Pictures from the event will be spotty until they make it to Warhammer Communities as hobby hostage taker Mike Brandt has decried:
