I rarely buy a mag I can't peruse first. How do I know if I want it if I can't see what's in it?

It was wrapped in plastic so I didn't bother  Confused

Does this effect anyone else (I would imagine that it does) that if you can't flip through then you don't buy?

Was it on the top shelf with the other magazines about plastic photo-shopped models?  ;D

A magazine with painting guides, modelling guides, terrain building, scenarios rules and the like would be intresting to me. Even as someone who has given up buying anything from GW besides the odd pot of paint that kind of magazine content would be intresting me. I dont however want to pay for the privilege of being advertised too.

So with only a few dwarfs shown so far do you think next week will show a few more being released for preorder? Giving them something to fill up the weekly mag with?

I bought both. I wanted to see what the hype was about.
I feel they should have kept WD as it was.

Visions is simply a picture book. Maybe 3 lines of text per page.
The Golden Demon/Blanchitsu/Army of the Month spreads etc were good. 100 pages of Tyranids not so much. Probably even if you like Tyranids.
I guess I'd get it again when it relates to an army that I have an interest in. Otherwise no.

The new much thinner WD was simply that. Thinner, not much substance. New dwarves, stats and painting for the dwarves. Not worth the time or money to collect every week. Thankfully my subscription expired last November.

Yes it was wrapped in plastic but most WD's have been in the last little while. My local store has a copy you can peruse though.
Yearly painting challenges only show me how useless I am at painting...

Don't worry.
Whoever is responsible for that lapse will probably be terminated before you return.

I cannot see them finding enough material to fill that many publications. It will have more user content, player armies etc, which will be nice to see, but there are only so many to take pictures of. And they have Fb and their blog for that too!!

Cheers

That there is a tabletop game is usually news to them.

That's quite interesting  :)

I actually find it difficult to believe given how much GW advertises their miniatures in books and games.

Same people that think of Final Fantasy and video games when they hear RPG.

No lie, one guy even had a Horus Heresy art book and had never seen a figure, or claimed not to have.

Urm ... yes ...

Yeah, but do you print books or do you print army rosters and airport boarding passes? ;)

I print stuff at home meself. I got an Epson PX650 printer a few years ago so I could print off relatively decent reference photos I found online, on proper photo paper an' all. It hasn't stopped me buying decent books on the given subject or clipping glossy magazines for the 'morgue'. Maybe it will, the way print seems to be going, but I'm still sceptical.

It isn't a legitimate comparison. Printer manufacturers make their money from ink and not printers. Hence the ridiculous price and the attempts to add DRM to printer cartridges. 3D printer manufacturers make their money from selling you a printer.

So who sells you the 3D 'ink'?
