I was leafing through the December White Dwarf (which I was given by a friend, he ended up with two somehow) and was shocked to see how blood prolific the stupid realm of "shite" battle is.
Every battle report, every product shot etc had its boresome flat surface pictured (except the LotR battle, interesting that it brings something to the game).
I know GW stores now push this crap on us, I can see why GW do it - but for fucks sake why is this now the only acceptable piece of scenery to be pictured.
Most of the other scennery used in shots seems to be the plastic unimaginitive shite that GW peddles as terrain, un-modded, uninteresting genric tosh is what it looks like - at least some of the GW store scenery they try to add bits to the terrain.
Is this really the way terrain is going?
I thought WD was getting crappy, but this takes the piss, does this men we can expect to see the realm of battle featured in all the army shots and battle reports from now on? I used to actually enjoy (and get some inspiration) from the modelled terrain in WD and other GW publications, also going to different stores used to be interesting as you could see the boards which they had come up with.
Does this stupid flat square monstrosity piss anyone else off or am I just getting emotional over something silly, it seems to me that since its creation its become the single most detrimental to gaming product which GW has released?
Are you a store manager or staff member - if so can you answer me a question - has GW officially stopped house terrain in stores or is it just the peons in my area who push the plastic tray school of battlefields?
