In case you weren't aware, Warhammer: Visions has changed and last month I was concerned that they would change the size, but not build on any of the feedback coming from the community.
Being reasonably fair minded I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and despite the bookshelf now no longer having a neat line of Warhammer: Visions issues, maybe this change of size would give them scope to change a few things - effectively relaunch themselves.
How often does a premium magazine (and for $13 it is premium) have the opportunity to do that?
So glancing through the issue I was quite pleased to see they have kept the large glossy images, the spotlight on people's armies and Blanchitsu.
It wasn't until I had a good look I realised that they haven't changed anything! This is the same magazine with the same issues they have had pretty consistently for 16 months, but that's not all...

We've seen James' amazing work before when his World Eaters force was published last year - and a truly epic force it is too. This force seems even larger. How does he find the time?!
Lots of great shots here - great work again, James!
So much detail!
Unfortunately they chose not to do that.
They chose to stay the course and in some ways actually go backwards to repeating content like the bad old days. With a month between issues there really isn't a lot of excuses for that
I reserved my judgement about the change of size for Warhammer Visions and I'm glad I did because it does improve the magazine a lot - there's more room to see, more detail to relish and really that's what this magazine is all about; the hobby!
Now they just need to take one thing into consideration - the audience.
