Army of the Devoted - old white dwarf issue
« on: February 21, 2018, 11:39:26 PM »
Just checking if anyone remembers an old issue of WD that had a photo spread of an sigmarite army. It had Luther I think plus flagellants etc and most importantly a devoted steam tank. The thing was magnificent and I think my copy was toasted in a flood. I would like to pattern my tank after that one but I cannot remember the name of the army or the issue it was in. I am making a new devoted army (something I wanted to do way back when) but now have the opportunity to. If someone has that issue and can post a pic of it or the WD issue # that would be great.

Do you remember if it was square or round bases?
Was it the old WDs of 6th and 7th, or was it when they had those mini WDs and the pamphlets on sale side by side?

I dont remember seeing a devoted steam tank, and I had most WDs during late 6th and 7th ed.

You will probably have to narrow it down a bit -

Old (small) Steam Tank, unlikely given the contet.
 - metal one - most likely and will have a limited time span through the 'noughties'.
.............. or latest plastic

Also weren't North American White Dwarfs numbered differently, and not sure if they always had the same content?

Good points. Larger metal tank. 6 - 7 ed. It had a white cover and it was the regular size WD. I have most of the little versions. It had a mostly white cover. Problem is if you had seen it, you would never forget it. It was that good. Square base as well

The North American editions were indeed numbered different for a time, but only for a few years I believe before they switched to the little pamphlet version.

WD 303 (UK)/302 (US) March 2005, has a couple of articles on "The Sigmarites", including  a Sigmarite Showcase by Dave Taylor and Steve Stiefel.
On a side note: "the devoted" in WFB usually refers to cultists.

Thank you Fidelis!!! Thatís the baby. Now to find the damn thing in my pile of rubble. Thanks for the info on the devoted. Not exactly what I had in mind for the name. Iím thinking Disciples of Sigmar unless thatís the name of the abbe army 😸

Confirmed : US WD 302. Going to look thru my collection again and pray.

Frozen sticks of piss!!!!

I have every freakin issue before and after including the famous #300 and that one is gone!!
One conclusion ......I took it out to keep it safe. Translation: gone forever.  Been down that thrice damned road before. If anyone actually has that issue and can post a pick of the steamtank, I would greatly appreciate it 😺

Just ordered copy from amazon. Itís at this point I will find my copy or someone will post. Please post anyways if you can as my copy wonít be here before March 20. Also gives me lots of time to build and paint the rest.

Can you post pic when your copy arrives. Been looking for mine to help, but 296 to 309 missing. The hunt continues.

I pull all white dwarfs apart and seperate articles into clear sleeve folders.
As such I cannot reference what I have to which WD, but I will have a look through my Empire folder. I dont ever really recall seeing such an army in what I collected, but you never know.

I am afraid not. There is a witch hunter army by Steve Hinett's (and without a steam tank).

 Thanks a lot for the effort guys! I was beginning to think this was a phantom but Bartolís  mention of the collectors guide rings a bell too. I seem to remember  the double appearance.

Possibly, but without the STank.

Not in the collectors guide my friend.
It has all the variants of STank that you could buy at the time and a conversion of long based STank.

Maybe it was just a "Ghostly" apparition  :engel:

Iíll be the fool again if it isnít there. I think itís uk 301. I believe thereís a slight difference in numbers.
As for the wife being home - there will be no peace for you brother 😸
