Kick and a Punch for the first of the month and it's Warhammer: Visions Day!
Yay! Well maybe not "YAY". Maybe, "Oh really? I'd better look inside...". This title still doesn't seem to be running off the shelves and I can see why.
As much as it's beautiful - there still isn't much new stuff for the regular White Dwarf peeps to see.
That being said - this month they did try to do a few different things, so kudos to you GW.
Forge World makes a brief appearance, and Army of the Month is an amazing Iron Hands force - you just have to see this to believe it!
Apart from that it's the usual stuff: washed out Games Day photos, some amazing Armies on Parade and oh... I should mention, and really good Paint Splatter!

~ WARNING -
I am not a photographer, so expect dodgy pictures below.
There's also a section later in the issue called "Glottkin Battles" featuring Glottkin's forces in battle. Some really nice stuff - atmospheric and of course Instagram meltdown!!. #totesfiltered
Now, I don't generally go in for the whole lighting effects thing, but this is pulled off so well you have to admire it! The green on the black works exquisitely. Just have a look at these pics (below).
There are also some great little conversions and character filled pieces.
There are however two great pieces amongst many I thought interesting:
Chris Blair's Gold 40k Unit winning Dark Eldar which just ooze character in an unconventionally Dark Eldar way (left) and Pablo Lopez Jimano's diorama (right)
Ten pages of Nurgle - from boils to tentacles, metal to teeth - this is what I think will make Warhammer: Visions a great publication. Add in lots of WIPs, exclusive vehicle conversions (like the Whirlwind and the Sabre both were in the old White Dwarf) and you have a great monthly hobby resource.
Keep up the awesome pictures - but value-add, please!
If you like the Iron Hands RUN NOW AND BUY THIS ISSUE. You will be enthused and inspired.
Otherwise you can probably leave it this month.
