Glossary

For a more relaxing experience navigating this site we recommend to take a look in the following glossary :

  • Images :
    • Always have in mind that the name of every image file has many details – information about the image.
    • Every image that needs a caption has one. Even the cover images of many posts.
  • (e)Books :
    • Many books may have a slight different dimensions from version to version.
    • Hardcovers usually(to be precise almost every time) have more pages. This happens because they are more ‘deluxe’ editions. Of course, the content is exactly the same.
    • Most of the books have some minor differences from their eBooks. Text is the same but they may have some more art, etc.
    • After the release of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar(2015), all Warhammer Old World releases are named Warhammer Chronicles.
  • Advertisements :
    • It is useless for my opinion to collect all advertisements – mail order, etc. that are in all magazines , Black Library novels/(e)books so I put some here, for obvious reasons (i.e. to have everything that has to do with Gotrek & Felix).
  • White Dwarf magazine :
    • There is no point in searching White Dwarf issues before #109 (January 1989) because :
      • William King was hired by Games Workshop many months later (this announcement was made in White Dwarf #119) .
      • Ignorant Armies was published many months later (in October) 1989.
    • (From Wikipedia) :
      • 1975 – 1977: Owl and Weasel to White Dwarf :
        • Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone initially produced a newsletter called Owl and Weasel, which ran for twenty-five issues from February 1975 before it evolved into White Dwarf.
      • 1977 – :
        • Originally scheduled for May/June 1977, White Dwarf was first published one month later. The magazine had a bimonthly schedule, with an initial (and speculative) print run of 4,000. White Dwarf continued the fantasy and science fiction role-playing and board-gaming theme developed in Owl and Weasel. Due to the increase in available space, there was an opportunity to produce reviews, articles and scenarios to a greater depth than had been possible in Owl and Weasel.
