I actually had some hope, and still do... as it stands, weekly White Dwarf/release isn't a bad thing, it could get people into stores (even if it's just the digital one). However, the execution's not quite there yet. This week's is a decent enough start though.

It's got the expected release list, which I actually like a lot more in weekly chunks. There's a few decent columns, some discussion and new rules for a model. All in all, 4 of these probably add up to a bit more reading than an old monthly WD. Can be turned into something quite nice with a modicum of effort I think. Add to each issue some of the old popular content (batreps, I'm looking at you), maybe sell an (ebook) bundled version every month.

Visions though... To be honest, it strikes me as something that missed it's sell-by date by 10-15 years. It would've been great to have back in the days of slow and barely-there internet. There's still a lot of pretty pictures, but... yeah. It's got some of what the weekly needs to be good, but substantial content is too thin on the ground and I've no idea how they can turn that one around.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

I got both on saturday (am a subscriber).

Tonight, I'm off to cancel that. I don't want to pay money for visions.

I'll probably check the weekly one and decide if there is anything in it I want from time to time, but visions can get lost.

I guess, we'll see about the weekly WD ... if they (Emperor behold) really go down the route to include more rules again in the mag, say for new units or just campaign scenarios etc., then it might even be something people (including me) might enjoy buying. Time will tell.


As for WH Visions ... it is utterly and completely unnecessary, or in Calculon's own words ...

Bought Visions on Saturday night just to give it a whirl.
Very unimpressed. I've wasted 7.50 on that.


Still, the plus side to the whole episode is that I now know for definite that I'll be saving money each month by not picking it up again.
And based on my opinion of Visions, I'll not even be giving white dwarf the benefit of the doubt.

I saw a visual extravaganza the other week in Cardiff city centre after I ate a whole pizza (from chippy alley) after copious amounts of tequila,
admittedly i'm not sure I would to pay 7.50 for that either..............

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?

I have the voucher sub, and I for one am happy. I didn't really like the old WD, and I quite liked visions. It was a shame about the nid thing at the front, because I've seen the studio nids the week before in WD, but the rest was cool. I'll never spend money on it, but ill happily pass my vouchers over for it.
