A little while back, after much gnashing of teeth, angst and tribulations, I came to "a place" with Warhammer Visions.
I basically gave up on it being anything than a picture book!
So this month, when I opened up my Warhammer Visions I didn't have any sense of expectation, excitement or thrill - and I'll tell you what... it certainly didn't disappoint.
It has pictures, some mood lighting, maybe a trip to Instagram, and they have given a good amount of space to the armies they are spotlighting - which had been a bit of an annoyance in the past!
That being said, they haven't gone out of their way in the New Releases section to give us any new images. The vast majority seem to be ones we have seen before apart from a few notable and pretty impressive stand-outs.
This month we also get a look at some of the entries from The Fang 2014 in Stockholm, Golden Demon from Warhammer Fest 2014 and two very impressive armies!

Most of the images you will have seen before in either White Dwarf or one of the Codex, but this one (above right) I don't remember seeing before. With such a stunning scheme, I wonder if Games Workshop are now regretting concentrating so much attention on the gold colour scheme during initial release.
Despite getting a release last week, and certainly no surprise to the Games Workshop team, Skarbrand doesn't get a look in which seems odd.
The fact some people have already built and painted this thing blows me away!!
Well, here - with Chris Peach's united Elven/ Undead army - we can get a better idea of how that will look... and like everything Chris Peach does, ITS AWESOME!!
You may have seen some of this in White Dwarf a few weeks back, well here is a much better and bigger look at the sum parts of the whole. For an Elf fan, this is an absolute must and Games Workshop should have rolled this out earlier and in a lot more detail. THIS will keep people interested in Warhammer, not C3PO on steroids. "Oh My!"
Could it be better? Yes
Has it been worse? Hell, yes!
This isn't a bad issue at all - if you like pretty pictures, give it a go!
