The return of White Dwarf as a monthly publication has been hotly anticipated when the news broke that the hobby magazine was going to return to it's earlier form, but in a much more expanded way.
The weekly White Dwarf wasn't perfect, but it did have some moments in the sun, the Imperial Knights launch issues stood out as being really excellent, but yes, it didn't always deliver.
As a marketing move, we have already commented on here how losing the weekly publication means less foot traffic through the doors of Games Workshop stores - the amount of left over stock in the Deathwatch releases last Sunday was probably testament to that being correct.
Time will tell, but this new format is very different!
This is more like a console gamer magazine in format and there is a lot going on - it's busy and certainly great value!
As we take you through this issue, please be aware that not every page has been photographed, but you will get a very good idea of what you will be seeing in the first issue on shelves this coming Friday
