It is time. The first White Dwarf has arrived and the pictures have spilled. If I get this correctly, the credit this time goes to PlasticKraK Blog (please correct me if I am wrong).
#1 – A Leak is a Leak is a Leak is a Leak?
I have to admit, I am as late to this part as I am conflicted about it. Last night, I was still browsing the usual forums and blogs for signs of these pictures, knowing (like everyone else) that they would be coming. At some point, I just stopped and did a bit of reading instead.
It is feeling a bit formulaic at this point, mainly because Games Workshop is really good at keeping things tight. The pictures “leak” less than handful of days before the White Dwarf is is stores.
From all I can guess, they are not even leaking from somewhere in the production chain, but from independent stockists and even simply subscribers in remote places (PlasticKrak appears to be in New Zealand?) that got lucky with an early delivery.
Is it worth incurring the (potential) wrath of Games Workshop by showing off White Dwarf scans 2 or 3 days before everyone can buy them at the shop? Undeniably, the interest is there. My Dark Angels Pictures leaked still ranks as one of my most popular blog-posts of all time (partly because I had it up a lot earlier than I have this one).
I am still unsure on how to go ahead on that issue on Pins of War. Are “leaks” like this one an important reason why you read my blog (or search the internet)?
Let me know if you have an opinion on that!

Until I decide, lets play with fire one more time. Here’s what you can find on PlasticKrak for your viewing pleasure. They certainly deserve the laurels for this scoop.
