I guess they will think of something to fill those empty pages..... ::)

Or maybe they won't? Have you seen the page layout after the previous relaunch?

Especially if they have to produce a 'weekly' effort as well.

Adverts I imagine.

There have been a few instances of the magazine being more than worth the money when they showed projects, conversions, armies, games etc of the staff members and also occasionally the sweaty GW public (I say sweaty by the mug shots used of the people themselves).

If more of this thing is included then it might be worth getting again.

cheers

236 pages is a lot to fill every month........  :o

My assumption is that a lot of that will be content from the weekly magazine. They have two markets, the regular gamer who gets the weekly book at a store and then the casual person who will see the monthly magazine at a newsstand or book store.

Such a shame. You see, I prefer to read magazines, you know, words and stuff...       I like words...

A clever ploy to charge twice as much monthly for WD alone...

Well, actually I'm kind of intrigued to see, what kind of material they'll put on each mag. The current WD isn't particularly interesting even for occasional buying because 60% of it is dedicated to all-out pushing of the latest marine army that I don't (or won't) collect. However, in a weekly mag there could be a chance of spotting an odd hobby article that's worth shelling out 3e but not 8e (with 50 pages of marines around it) every now and then. I'll take a look, at least.

I agree.

Hmm. They had better get those prices raised, and then severely cut the variety of stuff they sell. I mean, they got rid of Specialist Games so that's those money troubles sorted... but... I dunno, maybe a few more resin Hobbits and Dwarves at £12 will bring in the needed revenue? I know they are doing everything they can to preserve the business, so it's weird that their sales have dropped. Frankly I don't think they brought out enough Space Marines, and those they did are WAY too cheap; barely cover production costs!

Just read 6 pages worth of discussion over at Warseer, and TBH I feel a wee bit sorry for GW. It's like Lenny out of Of Mice And Men, just can't understand why all the fluffy little animals keep going limp and still.

I still like some of GW's stuff - their fluff, even if it is a 'borrowed' patchwork, and many minis. Wouldn't like to see those, or chunks of them, go down the pan.
Wouldn't mind seeing half the price tag do that, though. ;) No idea, as mentioned, if they'll ever get it into their heads to try it.

They're still in the black and the IP's worth loads, so don't go crying on their account just yet.
