It's the first Saturday of the month, so Warammer: Visions is out this morning, Issue 14!
Warhammer: Visions always has to straddle this interesting duality - it's there to promote the hobby, but as the same time it also has to be full of pretty pictures and pictures that will inspire, because the best form of promotion is word of mouth, and if Randall Fudgebucket in London can paint a cool Lizardmen army, then dammit so can I! Well that's the thought anyway.
Thankfully the bad old days of entirely rehashing White Dwarf pictures and republishing them is behind them (mostly - ie this week) so generally we get some great shots of some amazing models.
My cry for this to be more of a hobbyist magazine seems to be going into the void, but wouldn't you like more WIP and conversion workshops too?
Anyway, this month we get lots of Harlequins, an amazing Ork force and THE best Blanchitsu yet!
+ + More After The Jump + +
For Ork fans, this is some serious work and a must see. It also features probably THE best source lighting since Victoria Lamb - and that's saying something...
But that's not the best of it, in fact there's some amazing work all through this section including Raffaele Stumpo's Great Beast of Tzeentch. We don't see much of Tzeentch, but this is a reminder of the warped creatures under that mighty God's control.
It seems that painting aircraft like tanks is in right now. Have they ever seen a ground attack aircraft?
A couple of nifty little tricks in here actually!
This Inquisitor retinue by Johan Egerkran's (maybe this guy?) is just amazing. The conversions are so layered with elements they look like they belong! Plus we get some nifty little backstories including the exiled Ordo Carax Inquisitor with a love of all things Dark Eldar. WHO COMES UP WITH THAT?! Amazing.
But that's not all - there's also two abhuman Squats in his force all beautifully done, plus a number of other impressive characters. I want to show you them all but that wouldn't be fair!!
I'm absolutely blown away by this and REALLY want to see more.
I know it's a big call, but THIS is worth buying this issue alone - I kid you not.
I would buy this. Honestly there is so much to see here you should own it. Tell me if I'm wrong!
