This week's White Dwarf revolves around these Assassins and next week's release of Assassinorum Execution Force, a Space Hulk-esque set that will surely spawn add-ons and the like for years to come - but will the gaming public care or is it just a bit too niche and way to expensive?

There's counters, there's cards (right), there's miniatures - it all seems quite fiddly when compared to it's predecessor Space Hulk which was both simple and great fun to play, but I'm sure once you're in the swing of it it would all come together.
I do wonder though if this is the only Assassinorum game we will see?
Interesting that the packaging almost brands Assassinorum as a new games system and Exectuion Force is the particular set. One can only wonder...
Unfortunately the other miniatures in the game are all older and mostly snap-fit kits. For the price, this is pretty disappointing and not exactly a selling point!
Then there's the ad for Warhammer: Visions. Now I'm not going to shoot this down right now... in fact next week I'm going to give this a chance - but why in God's name would you change the size of this publication? It will now look stupid on the bookshelf! Here's hoping they have done a nice revamp on the inside and added a bucket load more content. Next week will tell!
Very nicely White Dwarf have given you the rules, mainly by datacards, to fielding these guys, as well as wargear for each Assassin and the Assassinorum Execution Force formation.
They do this pretty well actually!
Frankly this week's feels like a bit of a filler...
If they can continue doing this would be good!
Now despite there being three separate references to Warhammer: Visions changing size and format, someone at White Dwarf HQ forgot to change the ad in the back of the magazine, so here, for a limited time only is a final look at the old Warhammer: Visions format (right)
Next week is supposed to be something big - is it the Great Crusade box or the new Titan.
It's going to be big apparently...
