Hello, it's a Saturday so it must be White Dwarf Day - this week Issue #6 "Brute Force".
In Warhammer 40K, the Space marijnes rule the roost as THE most popular force - they are iconic, highly customsiable, and they frankly kick arse!
Next on the list would have to be, or certainly close, the Chaos Space Marines - losers in the Horus Heresy, they fled to the Eye of Terror and there have been slowly warped by their Chaos masters.
Well this week sees the beginning of two weeks of Chaos Space Marine releases, which could have been really cool - but the feeling in the White Dwarf is a bit lacklustre!
Is it because the Chaos Space Marines aren't new?
Is it because the Hellbrute isn't that exciting?
Or maybe it's just the Imperial Knight issues (#4 and #5) were so damn good that this just feels a bit... meh.
What you want to see is at the front.
Now if this was radio they'd be getting it all wrong, but it's not - so kudos to you White Dwarf!
Looks like they need to fill up a double page!
Look it's pretty lacklustre, so if you're not into the Hellbrute then you can probably skip this issue.
Apart from the pretty pictures there are some interesting articles, but it's a quick reads I can tell you.
I use a crappy little pocket camera, I assume Games Workshop use a better camera than me, but the pictures really don't look very good at all.
The Imperial Knight pictures were great - really crisp and clean, but like the dwarf ones from issues #1 - #3, these are out of focus and the colours don't look right.
They really need to look at this as it's inconsistent and not attractive.
So what do you think of this issue?
Are you interested? Did I get it wrong?
Let me know below...
