White Dwarf Sept 2017

This month I have checked off a long time goal.

I have a model published in White Dwarf magazine, Games Workshop's official monthly magazine for Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000!

The model in question is none other than the Deathwing Terminator Captain that I painted up earlier this year for Adepticon and the Crystal Brush in March.

But, apparently this isn't any ol' issue of White Dwarf, its a special 30th anniversary edition, celebrating 30 years of Warhammer 40,000! That's awesome!

 As I mentioned before, in the post for the Deathwing Terminator Captain, after I got back from Adepticon I took pictures of him and sent them off to the White Dwarf team.

A few weeks later I received an email from them saying the had shipped my pictures off to the graphic design team in the hopes that it can be featured in a future issue.

That was in April.

I spent the following months checking the Readers' Models section of each new issue, hoping to see if the Terminator Captain had made it in the book or not.

It was not.

Then, about a week ago, the new issue was hitting subscribers a bit early and I got a notification on Twitter from Bishmiester congratulating me on making it into the magazine!

Needless to say, I was pretty excited! But not as excited as I was when I found out that it was a special Warhammer 40,000 30th anniversary edition issue.

That made it even better.

As soon as I found out I was in the magazine, I got a hold of the FLGS and told them I needed 3 copies of the magazine set aside for me.

On Friday night I picked them up and was able to finally look at the picture of my model in the magazine in person and it was a super proud moment.

The plan for one of the copies was to cut it apart and frame it, which I did on Sunday.

I hung it on the wall in front of my painting desk.

Overall, I'm really proud to have finally gotten a model in the pages of White Dwarf. It's been a goal of mine for a long time. They did mention in the email I received from them to send in other pictures and that they'd like to see them.

I may do just that, once I get my custom Tech-Priest Dominus finished and further along on my Skitarii army.
