Is it that time again? Yes, Warhammer Visions is upon us, showcasing a month worth of releases, some great armies and a tonne of photos full of inspiration.
There's some good things about this issue, and I'll spell that out as we go along, but in the hope that someone in the void of the internet may be pay attention - some of the photography in this issue is pretty poor.
You may remember that we've touched on this before (weird filters/ bad lighting/ unclear pictures), but for the most part it has improved dramatically after quite a few issues that left a lot to be desired. Unfortunately for the reader, it looks like simple things like poor contrast and white balancing have returned leaving some of the pictures unnecessarily dark or just unclear.
This is people's beloved hobby work we are talking about here and for the photos not to do them justice is a real shame. Don't get me wrong, there are some awesome sections, but you'll see the difference between what is good and what is a mess.
++ More After The Jump ++
Also appearing in the New Releases section are Warboss Grukk and his Mob, two Tau characters and the Space Wolf characters from the Wulfen release window.
These models, numerous as they are, are full of character and have many different armour marks to bring the history of the Red Scorpions to life. Collected over 3 years, you can see Ben's painting skill improve as he goes along too.
Some of these shots do look like they have taken a short spin through Instagram mind you.

The Imperial Guard tanks in particular will fill you with inspiration!
Funny they didn't do this in order and start with the 1st Space Marine Legion, the Dark Angels!
A little bit of a closer look would have been good!
What happened here?
These pictures are so dark that details are obscured and have a look at the lens flare on the Imperial Fists tank - the aquila on the front has no detail at all.
The Founding Chapters section is a great idea and I can't wait to see the next months.
Of course it can't be the 2nd Legion because they are expunged from the records....
