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. But we are by no means limited to only those settings as we enjoy a wide variety of games and settings.
While we love receiving submissions that cover a wide and wonderful range of subjects, we have compiled the submission guidelines below for a reason! Following these will give you the best chance of making it into the magazine.
THE WRITE STUFF
- When writing your article, try to be as clear as possible. Short, simple sentences work wonders!
- Include an introduction that explains what you are writing about and why. The beginning of an article should welcome and draw readers in who may not be as familiar with the topic as you are.
- We love a good summary! Include a conclusion paragraph at the end for a comprehensive and satisfying ending to your piece.
- VERY IMPORTANT! Include captions for any pictures you submit, along with where they fit in the article.
- Don’t be a word hog! You might be surprised to learn that 1000 words takes up around 2⅓ pages without images – so stick to the point and be as succinct as possible. If you’re submitting anything over 2000 words it is less likely to be included unless every single word is solid gold and absolutely essential. 1000 words or less is the sweet spot.
We need high quality photos (in JPEG, PNG or TIFF format). They should be well-lit, high-resolution images that show your models clearly. They should not have watermarks or stamps of any kind on them.
Give file names that are clear and correspond to the submitted captions.
Fortunately, for those who are not professional photographers, Games Workshop has been kind enough to provide an excellent guide on photographing your miniatures, even with a camera phone:
