Back in September 1993 the grim dark future looked brighter, or at least the 40k version was anyway. Issue 165 of White Dwarf (part cover above, "Doom Of The Eldar" by Dave Gallagher) was excitedly gearing up for the new BOXED version of Warhammer 40,000 (version 2 for you kids out there!) with a long interview with Rick Priestly. The colourful painting style in vogue in the Fantasy world was still carrying over to the 40k world as well, as the photo below of the painted model Tyranid from the cover shows (also from Issue 165)
As ever Copyright obviously stays with the original owner (be it Games Workshop or the artist) and I hope that any interested parties will take these posts in the admiring showcase spirit that is intended.
