Dwarfs? or is this one of those British English vs American English nuances that comes around once in a while?

Nope it's Dwarven in the UK too, it just goes to show They spent so little time and effort on this they didn't spellcheck their work.

Look see I'm so angry at this pile of garbage I signed up just to moan a bit.

Well after seeing the vid on You tube I can definitely say I wont be buying either white dwarf weekly (as I have no interest in dwarfs) or the heap of crap that is warhammer visions......£7.50 for a picture book mainly full of nids? No thank you

The White Dwarf weekly was meh, hardly worth it although the fact that there were rules in it was a positive sign.

Warhammer: Visions was dreadful. Don‘t touch it with a long stick.

Available in iBooks, but not in the Newsstand, because hey, why the hell would you put magazine into the newsstand instead of the bookstore?

I have been reading and buying white dwarf for a long time, back in 1990 I started reading it in fact. I have followed it through good and bad times and some pretty awful times but I have stuck with it.

This I'm afraid is the final straw. I am still a fan of GW games and models and do not tend to moan too much in general but this is atrocious. I got my copies of Warhammer visions and the 'new' white dwarf today in the mail as I am a subscriber.

I probably don't need to labour the point as it has already been said. Warhammer visions is astonishing in its lack of meaningful content. It is absolutely unbelievable that the White Dwarf team presumably sat round a meeting table and came up with this idea and they all agreed it would be good.
Nothing more than a collection of pictures, granted they are very glossy and well taken but that is all it is. There is a very small description in three languages accompanying most of them but that is it. Blan shit su is crap and shows a warband of 4 models.
The battle report, if that is what you could call it, is a not even a half hearted attempt at showing what is in the pretty pictures. Again, utter crap!!

Pretty much the whole thing is dominated repeatedly by Tyranid models that we have seen over and over again from different angles.

What are they thinking? £7.50 for some pictures. Utter vacuous drivel with no depth. We all like a decent picture or two depicting drama and action scenes from our games as well as well painted miniatures but this is ridiculous.

The weekly white dwarf is thin and sad. It was read cover to cover in about half an hour. For me, £2.40 for that level of poor writing and lack of substance is just awful.

I am saddened that it has come to this but it looks like the subscription will not be renewed. It is almost insulting to expect discerning persons to consume this drivel.

Maybe I'm just getting old and have been at this toy soldiers hobby for too long or maybe they are aiming at a new target audience of illiterates who just like looking at pictures.

Spoke to a friend in a South Wales store today (purposely vague here), sales are good on the mags today but feedback is almost unanimously poor

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Well I was disapointed when I didn't get my annual subscription for xmas this year and grumbled all the way round the supermarket in Jan where I bought the last ever copy of White Dwarf. Seeing the reviews on the new releases I am glad that I didn't get the subscription now. Visions looks like a gigantic pile of turd and unfortunately I am not willing to drive a 24 mile round trip potentially to buy just a small mag. If I make that effort to drag my carcass to GW to spend my money I think I would rather buy a pot of paint that I need, or a brush or lunch.
