- Grave Guard and Command

Grave Guard are long dead heroes who are tied to the lands of the living by strong Necromantic magic. In ages past, the men of the Old World buried their dead beneath mounds of earth and stone, together with their battle gear and worldly wealth. Some powerful vampires command entire regiments of these ancient warriors, who terrorize the living with powerful weapons of cold iron, know as Wight Blades. As the Grave Guard walk towards the enemy with evil intent, these warriors are accompanied by the distant and ghostly sounds of trumpets and a whisper of dreadful challenges. The source of these phantom noises could issue from the Grave Guard Command, powerful undead warriors lead these dread footsoldiers of the Vampire Counts into battle.

- Citadel Journal #43

The Citadel Journal is Games Workshop's very own bi-monthly fanzine, with great new articles, illustrations, house rules and scenarios by Games Workshop's most dedicated fanatics - YOU!!! Here's some of what's in the new issue: Imperial Armor Q&A, Gotrek and Felix rules, Rapier Laser Destroyer, Maximillian Weissemann's Baneblade.

- Kragg the Grim

He's back! Kragg is armed with the finest weapons that a Runesmith can fashion. His great hammer, which he forged when he was a young Master Runesmith, bears Kragg's own hidden and secret rune. The old Dwarf is jealous of his lore and protective of his reputation and so far he has not shared the secret of his master rune with any of his apprentices, so only he may use it. Perhaps some day the master will teach it to his successor, but so far he has not found a Runesmith worthy enough to inherit his knowledge.
