View Full Version : Games Workshop Warmaster Release Timeline

03-10-2010, 15:42
This is a list I’ve compiled (with help) of Games Workshop’s releases over the years, split by game system. I stress this is a work in progress; it is far from complete or comprehensive. It’s based on a mix of info from these forums, fellow forumites help and my White Dwarf collection. I never collected the specialist games magazines, so there are currently a lot of gaps for those.

I'm sure there will be errors: things mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits, models in the wrong month, and some just plain missing. If you can help out with further info to improve this it would be greatly appreciated :)

Some guidelines for inclusion:

Magazines, books, terrain, tools, paints and so on aren’t included: this is focused on models alone.

Battle Forces and other boxed sets of armies generally don’t get included.

I don’t include models released in starter sets except where they differ from existing models significantly. So the Island of Blood models count, but the Battle for Macragge ones don’t.
Despite these issues I hope it might be an interesting or helpful resource for others. Many thanks to Tarax, Tae, Scryer in the Darkness, mrtn, gunmonkey, Ghudra, someone2040, Daniel36, coyote1066, Coach, MarcoSkoll, AsleepByDay and ADF for all their help.

Note on *: I would like one day to give this a site of it's own, and as part of that I was to add images of models for easy identification. At the moment that project is firmly on hold for various reasons, but I'm still collecting images here and there. The asterisks mean I have an image for that thing.

what about the entire Araby army?

what about the entire Araby army?

As I say, I don't have many records of releases after the initial release of Warmaster itself, only bits and pieces I found in White Dwarf. If you know what month they were released in I can add them in.

wow! 10 years of warmaster :)

Reminds me of the dozens of games I played with the same badly painted 1000pts Dwarf army I had.

And a time when you could find loads of people to play.

The Kislev army list was published in Warmaster magazine #2 - before Bretonnians, I don't know exact date.
