Default White Dwarf

For any of those who read White dwarf Have you noticed that it seems to have been going down hill. This passed year I haven't read a decent White Dwarf since last year

Any Thought?

They do actually seem to have cut back on all the adverts in it. I still think it's a good read. Seems to have more pages than it used to also.

I have always enjoyed looking at the golden demon competition section. you can usually see some good painting and conversions.

i haven't bothered getting the last few issues.

I'd agree though. in general, quality is bad. the tactica's they give can be bad (especially the recent eldar ones!) and you cangenerally get better tacticas on any forum on the net.

Only occassionally do we get somethnig worth reading there now.

My problems with it are i dont play warhammer fantasy, so thats a 1/3 of the magazine that is irrelevant. and then, despite having its own mag, LOTR decides to pollute White Dwarf with its own heresy, that i have absolutely no time for....

Yes, the LotR filth does seem to encroach on the last third of it, and seeing as the price is so high (I used to think 2.50 was steep!) and only about 1 3rd of it is relevant to me, I don't ever buy it. I just borrow Aka's. ;D

Only ever if it's really, really relevant to me. And I managed to miss the issue I wanted most with all the Tyranids stuff in it when I went to America. >

I also think that it has gone down hill. On the GW forums, a lot of people were bashing Guy and the team, and while it is to some extent their fault, I don't think it is fair to bash their efforts. I still prefer the older ones though.

I bought a WD several months ago. The only GW game I'm currently playing is 40K- so I look at the other sections, but don't really get into them.

The 40K section went something like this:

Converting Blue Space Marines
Playing Blue Space Marines
Painting Blue Space Marines
Enjoying Blue Space Marines
Eating Blue Space Marines
Sleeping Blue Space Marines


And finally an article on....Blue Chaos Space Marines.

The WD I bought in the previous month was about... Green Space Marines.

I realized the last 4, in fact, were about that game...Space MarineHammer 40K. I could have sworn there were like...30 OTHER armies, but you couldn't tell that from what the WD folks wrote for that 6 month period or so. Maybe the other armies in the photos were just background props.

So yes- I haven't bought a WD in 6 months. I'll wait till they do something different....like Orange Space Marines. :P

Just be paitent. The next 6 months or so will be full of more marines than you can fire a brightlance at, but then we start getting into other armies hopefully. The fact that they've used the 4th edition as more of an upgrade than a new game means that they don't have to bring out new codices as fast, but thats the downside too.

Once we're past the Black Templars it should be shoulder-pad free sailing for a few months at least.
