The Septemeber issue comes in a card-stock slip cover to protect the new issue and two posters that come inside. The first is a larger version of the cover art with Ork Stompas in the background. The second poster is for Total War: Warhammer 2. Now, this issue is full of hobby features and makes up for the poor showing that was last month’s White Dwarf. There is the final installment of the ‘Tale of Four Warlords’; new Hobbit rules in preparation for the upcoming Lake Town releases from Forge World; a feature that goes in-depth on Allies from the new General’s Handbook 2017; and much more.
