Default New GW Websites

Just as the title says, looks like GW has made a new International Portal to their websites, here it is - http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/

ps - Helbrecht is at the fore :P

EDIT:
Looks like its the US one as well, I'll check out the UK site later.

EDIT number 2:
Sent them an e-mail about how I am not impressed with the new layout, as it does not make me feel like either purchasing or playing the game.

EDIT 3:
Not as bad as I origionally thought, but I still prefer the older layout.

I like the new website a lot, I am glad they finally integrated the store with the fluff/background/painting/modelling section. It was obnoxious to switch between sites all the time. It needs some work still, as certain parts don't function correctly. But you'll see they added new bits back into their site, and the specialist games have received more love.

I like the 2 in 1 format too. Also, there's an army specific bitz section at the bottom of each army's section. That's going to be really cool when it's populated. In summary: good ideas, needs work.

It also seems they've added and updated their articles to an extent, I am not sure if the Tyranid Tactica article was so vast and informative before! I am loving it as I am in the midst of building up my army!

But seriously.. it was some real bad photoshopping.. it was just cut out images from photo's, so every model had different lighting, and none were the right size..
I could have done a better job _ I'd have taken a picture of line of models in a triangle, like the DoW anthology box.

Photoshopping is pretty bad, as Timjim pointed out.

Just clicking around the site now. So far, it's not that great, although it has potential. The load times are a bit irritating. I'm noticing a distinct lack of pictures. While I'm fine without them, it doesn't feel particularly inviting, with a uniform tan across the pages, and very little pictures.

Oh man, I agree with General D. Imperial Armour on GW site? Sweet!

Much too slow. Good intentions, terrible execution.
