28 magazine focuses on unique and personal visions of the various Warhammer settings, especially relating to Warhammer 40,000 skirmish games and the darker aspects of Age of Sigmar. It would be useful to have a read through the magazine itself, which will give you the best idea of the standard and types of submissions we are after. While we do not have any strict criteria for the articles, and are always looking for reader input, below is a list of the basic article types included in each issue:
The Forge – tutorials and guides to painting, converting, building and sculpting.
Interviews – interviews with artists, game designers, writers and members of the community.
Essays – articles about, but not limited to game design, the background of the various settings, the history of a game, or how to plan a campaign.
Events – spotlight on various event games arranged by hobby enthusiasts.
Artist Focus – a detailed look at a particular artist’s work.
When writing your article, try to be as clear as possible:
- Do not assume that the reader is familiar with the topic.
- Include an introductory paragraph that explains what you are writing about and why.
- Include a conclusion paragraph summarizing your article.
- Include captions for any pictures you submit, along with their place in the article.
Further guidelines are included here.
When submitting photographs/pictures for your article:
- They should be well-lit, high-resolution images that show your models clearly.
- File names should be clear, with names that correspond to the submitted captions.
Along with the written document (in Word format), and pictures (in JPEG, PNG or TIFF format), submit the following information:
Name – include your real name so that we can credit you properly. If you do not wish to use your real name, let us know so that we can discuss it.
Email – so we can contact you about your submission, if any edits are necessary.
Instagram – if you have an Instagram account, please include it so that we can include it in the credits section.

Article Type – so know what type of article you have submitted (basic types listed above), to help us organize and format submissions.
Article Name – include the name of your submitted article.
- You remain the owner of your IP. 28 does not own your article or pictures, but we are allowed to use them in any way we see fit in relation to the magazine and its marketing and promotion. 28 is and will remain free to read in the digital format.
- We do not allow or condone IP theft nor do we allow hate speech for any reason.
- We are looking for articles from passionate individuals, not company accounts.
- 28 is free to edit the article as we see fit, with the intent of making the article fit the magazine. We will not be able to inform each writer of each edit, but we strive to keep the spirit of the article intact.
