Default White Dwarf magazine now weekly

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/wn...p?pid=12800022

first of all, holy fucking shit. Weekly? white dwarf is getting bad as it is with tactical content, but now the're going for weekly releases

also they are releasing a monthly mag called Warhammer visions

"Warhammer: Visions, now monthly.

Warhammer: Visions will be available on the first Saturday every month in your local Games Workshop store, Independent Stockist, games-workshop.com and local newsstands in the UK, Europe and Australia.

Warhammer: Visions is a completely new monthly magazine, also from the White Dwarf team. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done before and this super high-quality visual feast weighs in at a whopping 236 pages, each and every month."

thoughts?

i know i have a few questions

1. How much is this going to rip out of my wallet?
2. is it even worth getting every weekly issue? i prefer the monthly release.
3. is 4 weekly mags going to be equal to the monthly mag in terms of price, content and value?
4. why warhammer visions as well as the weekly?

what say you heresy members?

They said the weekly magazine was going to cost the same as a pot of paint so it'll be about 3 at the moment. Next up, a price increase on tubs of paint to 18

No idea on the monthly one price.
The little one also claims it's going to have rules and such in there too.

I'm interested to find out what they'll be like

So they have finally gone and killed WD. Without sounding too cynical, it loosk like they are trying to bleed more money out of us by having a weekly mag. I may get the first one and see whats its like.

I can't see how they are going to fill visions every month though. They are pretty vague about what is going to be in it, but if its just pictures of nicely painted models it will get old pretty quick.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Probably round about March 2014?

There's a rumor that they will have a weekly and monthly. The rumor also says that the weekly is little more than an ad magazine, most of it is new products.

If you go throught the link Tech provided in the op - it's not rumour, it's confirmed

I just want to know what happens to the subscribers - do we get weekly, monthly or cancelled

True. A more expensive version $4x4 weeks vs $10x1.
