Well, you’ve been waiting, you’ve been asking, and now we have a very special announcement for you all…
It’s back! From September, White Dwarf is returning as a monthly magazine and it’s bigger and better than ever before!
That’s right, from September White Dwarf will be back as a glossy 156-page, A4 monthly magazine with all the news, features and pictorials you know and love and a whole chunk of new stuff you never imagined. News, Golden Demon, Battle Reports, Painting Masterclasses, Designers’ Notes, exclusive games, new rules and more! And, of course, gorgeous photographs of the best miniatures in the world.
The first issue is out on Friday 2 September and comes with our most amazing cover mount ever – a special gift to you to celebrate the glorious return of monthly White Dwarf.
Want to be one of the first to get hold of it? Subscribe before 14 August and get an exclusive pre-launch price – and subscribers get their copies mailed early. Head on over to www.games-workshop.com for details.
And if you’re already a subscriber to White Dwarf or Warhammer Visions, check your mail for news of an exclusive subscriber offer.
In the meantime, of course, White Dwarf will remain your essential weekly guide to all things from the worlds of Warhammer. We’ll have more to tell you about the new magazine soon, but for now here’s one of the mock-up covers we designed while working on the first issue. You’ll have to wait a bit longer to get a glimpse of the real cover, though…

I just hope that it is more than a glorified Ad for new stuffs; like perhaps having interviews with designers (Rule writers, Event running (Adepticon, Bay Area Open/Las Vegas Open), CEOs - like seriously this is the easiest way for GW to discuss things with their fan base, all the while charging for that haha!) or custom missions or custom terrain...

I'm not sure if I will buy the new version since I found that the White Dwarfs were not spectacular before they went to the Visions style.

Nothing like having heavy stacks of magazines everywhere (what is this, the 90s?!).

Considering doing an online subscription pending content of the first few issues. I used to love WD but these stupid little books are a waste of time with the exception of the occasional rules addition (my beloved Assassin datasheets/the occasional Formation).

Between seeing this and the actual deals that GW is starting to offer I'm actually regaining some faith in the hobby after the whole Age of Sigmar fiasco.
The only fiasco I really see with AoS is the lack of a points system which should be corrected this year. In every other respect the game is solid and easy to play which frankly I wouldn't hate seeing done to 40k if it meant we curbed out the neckbeardyness that some of the community wants to drag the game into.

But that's just me and my weirding way talking.
