Games Workshop overhauled White Dwarf. Go see how the magazine looks now.

From the update:

The planets align, dark omens abound, the Eye of Terror opens, and nothing will ever be the same again: the new White Dwarf is here! After many months of hard work, Games Workshop’s monthly hobby magazine has undergone a dazzling transformation. You can see the results for yourself in the October issue, which goes on sale today.

With more pages, new features dedicated to every aspect of collecting miniatures, and a wealth of astonishing photography, the new White Dwarf is packed full of hobby wonder. An all-new team is your guide through the worlds of Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 and The Lord of the Rings, surveying what’s new and exciting in the hobby every month from the Design Studio, Forge World and Black Library.

First and foremost, you’ll find the new White Dwarf to be a celebration of the brilliance of Citadel miniatures, and the stunning New Releases section kicks things off in jaw-dropping style, showcasing the new Chaos Space Marines in a way you’ll never have seen before.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Wonder if it’ll be more articles and less ads.

    THe way it’s been for a few years, it really is something they should give away for free.

    It is actually more ads and less articles. Much more ads.

    Well there are a lot of pages, increased from 122 to 152, though much of this is just showing off the new releases rather than actual articles.
    The covers are thicker and with shiny pictures, it feels more like a book than a mag.
    There are still 10 pages just listing store locations, which for me is such a waste of space.
    Cover price increases from £4.50 to £5.50, i await news of how much my direct debit subscription will increase by.
    I think the same as with the finecast models, GW are trying to increase product quality, in the belief people will be willing to pay more for it. Looking at the last financial report it seems to be working.

      Hm… I hadn’t put it in those terms before, but with White Dwarf at 152 pages, it is almost half again larger than the Chaos Space Marine Codex.

    same old same old from GW IMHO.

    increase on cover price for a mag that has loads of adverts in it id a joke as far as i’m concerned. when will people realise that all they do is re-hash and re-print the same articles every few years, i.e. those covering each phase of the game in fantasy etc, which is taking the mickey out of their customers.

    hope it goes down like a lead balloon. shows what they think of their customer base when they bin warhammer historical instead of selling it on so the people who play those games can continue to evolve.

    havn’t playedfantasy, 40k or LOTR for 4 years now simply because their models whilst nice, are vastly over-priced compared with others in the market place.

    I had higher hopes, but I should have expected this from GW.
