This month's Warhammer Visions has been quite anticipated in my house - (1) because it would have the Betrayal at Calth miniatures in it and (2) one of our Twitter peeps is featured!
Doot, who has possibly the largest Ultramarines and allied Titans and Knights force in human history gets a run!
The Visions folks do quite a nice job with the Betrayal At Calth miniatures, in fact taking them out of the game and putting them into a larger setting for some massed combat.
Also in this issue, Forge World give us some of their characters form the Heresy era, lots of shots of miniatures from across The Fang, the Lizardmen (Seraphon) get a run in an army that is so colourful it looks like it's fallen out of Carnivale, some great shots of some of the Armies on Parade including a great Undead force, the Knights of House Taranis and of course John Blanche in Blanchitsu, this time moving away from 40K and into Warhammer.
So is this issue worth getting?

The Betrayal At Calth part is good, and in fact they take the miniatures, put them with a whole lot of the Forge World ones and make the Battle of Ithraca in a cool centrefold section. There's also some new shots of the miniatures, but if you were after anything really new for the other non-Calth releases you'll be dissappointed - it's all old pics!
The Fang 2014 has some really amazing miniatures! These are some of the best fan miniatures around. It's well worth your time to check these out, despite a filter over the images. Speaking of which...
What I was interested in seeing was how much Warhammer Visions use the lighting and obviously after effects to change the pictures. Have a look below at the difference when compared to the Twitter picture - nowhere near as clear and the colours seem slightly off which is disappointing.
If you want a really good look at his work, follow him on Twitter.
There is a repeated Paint Splatter in the back from the White Dwarf too if you missed that one.
I think they're going a bit heavy on the Instagram filters here - the Lizardmen shoot is so dark and the colours so vibrant that it's actually jarring. I'm sure they are beautiful miniatures, but they're not done any favours with that kind of lighting...
