With such a massive month of primarily Warhammer Age of Sigmar releases, Warhammer Visions this month had the potential to really show off, really stand out, take a leap from some pretty poor months recently and almost relaunch in honour of Warhammer Age of Sigmar - but did they?
In the past Warhammer Visions has had the problem of sometimes being too obsessed with one large release - the Tyranids and Dwarves were a prime example of how this went horribly wrong. However it has also worked well at times - the Imperial Knights issue particularly was full of great new content and some of the best photography we have seen. There have been other issues of similar quality, but it stands out particularly.
In this issue Games Workshop have not been entirely obsessed with Age of Sigmar (unlike White Dwarf) and really only dedicated the New Release section & Paint Splatter at the end.
But - is the issue any good and why so many armies?

Now oddly, I couldn't find any image I hadn't seen before in either the rule book, the sourcebook, the painting guide or White Dwarf. I could be wrong, was once, the angels cried!
It's nice having the pictures so big, but a bit of new content would surely be warranted.
Right at the end of the section - just in case you needed to make quick reference - is this handy price guide.
Some great Skitarii forces in here amongst other models that are worth a look
Is it spectacular? Not really. Is it full of some great miniatures? Yes.
There are some really interesting miniatures in here, not really the mainstream and therefore I think if you're not picking up any minis this week - why not give this a go?
It's not terrible, it's not even bad - which in the history of Warhammer Visions is worth knowing!
