My subscription for White Dwarf ends this year, but it's clever enough to make me want to finish picking up the rest of the year just to get the image. Plus spine images look good on your shelf (as my mother's collection of the original Star Trek movies can attest, putting them in order forms a picture of the Enterprise and it looks really neat).

It's a sales technique that doesn't work with me then, as I know full well that people will post the pictures on here and other sites anyway. Meaning I get all the news and images yet still don't need to buy the magazine. Cheap I know, but

Jake.

Well mabe it's hinting to either a future codex or a new starter box? If they are gonna release a new DA book they'll most likely have the realease date the same saturday as the final issue of white dwarf, so the first saturday in december (or near as damn it), if DA are rumoured to be the 6th ed release then the possibility of a starter box that includes DA may be realeased on this day, mabe a dark angels versus chaos space marines possibility? We may get half way through the sides of white dwarfs and the picture may be split down the middle, showing a heretical side to the dark angels, or fallen angels in black armour? possiblt a cypher picture? This is all just speculation and my ideas.

The issue with that theory is, 6th Ed is due for a summer release (as far as I'm aware).

Hey,

Why does the picture need to be completed before a possible release of a product. Maybe it really is a marketing ploy to increase hype prior to a new box set release, army book, or just DA product. Coupled with a 40k 25th aniversary special spine picture.

Because by then you've brought the interest as high as you can. Additionally with Chaos looking like it's next, and 6th Ed in the summer the soonest I'd expect to see DA is towards the end of the year anyways.

I hear what you are saying and I guess we will know more this summer. Until then this is just speculation.
Another possibility is it is a build up to the Black Library Ravenwing release in January.

IMO-this is as well with mates in GWS, that this may possibly be Azrael or a guy with a combi-weapon-As you notice the circle bit of a bolter at the end of the gun

I'm not insane I just lack sanity, there's a difference....................somewhere

Like I said in the DA rumour thread, it's probably artwork for Azrael. If anyone's going to have a gold combi-plasmagun, it'd be him.
