WINK Review: Warhammer 40,000 7th Ed. Boxed Set


With Warhammer 40,000 7th Edition, Games Workshop has made some more dramatic changes. Since this is really a review of the 7th edition boxed set itself, I won’t discuss rules changes. But those changes do suggest that GW is willing to sacrifice parts of the 40K universe backstory in an effort to sell more miniatures. That is perhaps reflected in the photography in this gorgeous three-volume box set. Dramatically-staged and photographed battle scenes, with thousands of ridiculously well-painted miniatures, abound. As does lots of very nicely done artwork throughout all three volumes. These are really beautifully-produced books with extra touches everywhere (e.g. spot varnishing, embossing, multiple cover finishes, high quality paper and printing).

Read the full review.
