and titter:wink:You said abreast.....
I was waiting for someone to mention the old days,and still no actual hobby info like the old days!!
This is the first I've heard about this and I have subscribed for longer than I can remember (or care to admit!)OK, well I'm not convinced it will happen so quickly. If it was, all the subscribers would know about it already and we would have heard this rumour some time ago.
It used to be like that about 10 years, back then it was quite common to have page (or several :shok without a picture on it! Shocking I know. I was quite happy to have a subscription back then, I could spend days if not weeks pouring over each issue. I took out a sub when they "revamped" it. Barely think I even spent an hour reading the last issue. I didn't resubscribe.White Dwarf should expend into general mini wargaming rather then GW exclusive ad service. Or include more interesting material like more useful tutorials, or even just release updates for those underpowered units in each codex kinda like a FAQ, man the sales would def jump by a lot!

Starting February 1st. White Dwarf will appear weekly. Within it's 32 pages you'll find everything you need to know about all the week’s other new releases and latest hobby news.
You’ll also find new features, new modelling and painting techniques, new rules, new columnists and much more. All of this will be available, for the price of a paint pot!
Alongside the the new White Dwarf, we'll have a brand new magazine; Warhammer: Visions. Warhammer: Visions contains all your favourite sections from the old monthly White Dwarf – from Army of the Month and Blanchitsu, to Kit Bash and Paint Splatter. This 232 page tome will be available on the first Saturday of every month, for only 9€!
For those of you with subcriptions to the old White Dwarf, fear not, you will still be able to use them monthly. We'll have more information on the subscriptions for you on Thursday, so check back with us to find out how the new system will work.
Tvia Mr. Mystery over on the Bols Lounge
Confirmed in store.
Seems they have the scoop, with web announcement to follow at some point.
To sum up what I've been told so far (I stop short of saying what I know, as although I have no reason to doubt my local store staff, bits may be misconstrued).
WD is going weekly, as are releases. Kicks off 1st February 2014. This magazine will focus on the releases.
Warhammer Visions is the new monthly mag. 100 additional pages, and hobby article based, set to include stuff like Blanchitsu, Standard Bearer, Reader's Armies, Paintsplatter, 'Eavy Metal et al. Seems this will be largely internal advertising free.
Rules content? Who knows. Given their push to rapidly release stuff, quite possibly not. After all, why charge £7.50 for rules in a mag which will be around for a month, when you can charge £20/£30 for a hardback book which is permanently available.
For what it's worth, my local GW shop just posted this on it's facebook page:
As many of you know BIG things are coming to white Dwarf. So what does that mean for you?
An all new weekly edition of White Dwarf will now be available in stores featuring that week's new releases s well as painting techniques, rules and more.
In addition the monthly White Dwarf is expanding to over 230 pages, with your favorite columns from before like Blanchitsu, Kit Bash and Paint Splatter, but will also now contain over 70 pages of Golden Daemon entries, Armies on Parade photos and more!
But that's not all, with the White Dwarf available now every Saturday you can look forward to new releases nearly every week!
Stay tuned for more information.
