I stopped my subscription nigh on half a decade ago now and I have trouble even finding them outside of GW these days. I used to walk into newsagents or book stores and have a quick flick through (mainly for cool model pics) but even they don't stock them anymore. Just seems like it's a massive advert for themselves. I miss the stories, good battle reports, "tactics" and things like Chapter Approved or background fluff.

No, it was never on a hill or at least from when I remember it maybe back in 2001 I think was the last decent WD then it died so I can't recall it being on a hill

Completely, Gw its self is going down the tube...They only hire "Special" people as there staff now days and don't know anything about there own products......Yes the rhino the guy wanted is a landraider........(when the box says landraider in big print...i love tards)

*cough*

Anyhow back on topic white dwarf was good for awhile with stats for new units, but due to gws new "Tight Lipped" Approach on everything the magazine is worthless they cant even push there own products do to there crappy management and advertising.

I found White Dwarf went to crap sometime after 2003. The last time I remember really, really loving White Dwarf was during the Eye of Terror campaign era.

Actually, now that I think about it, I remember when I decided that White Dwarf just wasn't worth reading anymore - it was during the Medusa V worldwide campaign event. There was a battle report between an Ultramarines army and some Necrons and the Space Marine player opted to take silly things like a Captain with a power fist, a Land Raider and a bunch of other stuff that wasn't only a terrible mismatch as far as effectiveness and fluff was concerned, but would just generally be worthless (or even counter-productive) against his opponent. At this point, I just couldn't stand the stupid anymore and canceled my subscription. I've only bought two issues of White Dwarf since that day and only did so because they released the 4th edition Blood Angels Codex there.

Yeah, definitely been going downhill for quite some time. The last issue was no different and that was with the new editor at the helm. Hopefully a couple of issues in and he can turn it round to what it used to be, a bloody good read. I've got issues going back to issue 98 and they were so much better back in the good old days!

As others have said, why would I pay $12AUD for a big ad? I can watch them on TV for free.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...
