Default New GamesWorkshop Site

Well, I'm pretty confused.

Just went swinging by GW and guess what I found:

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/

Look at the US section, its all re-vamped

Pretty nice, except the format is confusing enough that I'm worried some key articles may be missing.
Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I liked the old style much better.

Thoughts?

Well, it always takes a bit of adjusting when new formats come along, but there are two things I don't like about it, and I doubt that I could come to like:

1) It's noticably slower than before.

2) They've basically integrated the 'online store' with everything else. So now everything's like an advertisement. You can't find anything without seeing big pictures with prices on them.

I really hope this means that they might actually start posting Articles on the sight... : unlikely

Generally the archetype within fantasy and sci-fi is that if a character looks good, then he/she is good, if they're ugly then they're probably evil. (I'm looking at YOU TOLKIEN!!)

It is very slow, and the online store intigration is annoying. Although it now looks nice and shiney.

I think they actually removed some older ones.

And they changed some of the collectors prices. I just ordered a Lord Solar Macharius and it was $17.00. Now the site says $13.00. Great, I just got jipped $4.00...

I knew someone would've caught it before I did...

Meh, guess this whole topic's irrelevant then.

On to Icer's!
