The last few issues have been in a format that i like with each system given its own section with a mini contents page instead of the articles being jumbled up.
What the hell was going on with this issue, i have barely read it as its just a jumble of articles (the LoTR is kept together), also it seems that most of the magazine is adverts and they are just scattered randomly through the articles.
Why the hell have they gone from an easy to read organised format to this.... :wacko:
Also it would seem that Tau and Giants are the only thing GW produce.
ya i agree with you becausei was looking for some warhammer 40k stuff and i got past the giant stugg and I was like oh it must be 40k next nope it's LotR and then some terrain and then40k and then more Lotr
To be honest i do not feel that White Dwarf has been the same since Paul Sawyer left as editor, and in recent months i feel that it has become more White Hobbit than White Dwarf.
Yeah, it really went downhill when Paul Sawyer left, it looks more like the few issues I have that are pre-fat-bloke these days, full of bright colours and adverts (albeit more stylish ones these days)
So, they have changed back.Originally Posted by rovens
This is good news indeed. I never fancied that "organized" layout, as it made it too easy too find and read the articles I like first.
the more chaotic version can make me find a good article the second time I read the magazine, it can also make me read things I wouldn't have Read if it was in game-sections.
I think it is better to have things in between the related articles as they can bee a bit too similar to one and other if they are clogged up. Like the Black Templars, inumerous pages of the same few models following one and other. Better to have one BT article then something completely different (No3 the larch) and after a while another BT article.
I hate this new layout. Even when the fat bloke was editor it seemed easier to read without being organsied. To be honest i'd rather have the organised way back or a more organised jumble ( a la fat bloke white dwarf)
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
"'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more."
new WD are naff, ever since fat bloke took over there waws a bit of a bumpy time and the mag got thinner. now its a joke. I dont buy it unles theres something I realy want to see but 60% of the non-ad stuff (ie half the mag) is on the internet, their tactics are crappy and the battle reports faked so why buy it?

I must say that I love the most recent WD (North American issue 316, with Sauron the Necromancer on the cover). Yes, it is a tad "chaotic" and it is vastly different from the formats seen before, but damnit it was a fun read.
The jumbled style even had me reading some LOTR articles, and although I am not a fan of that game, I enjoyed reading them. If nothing else, the LOTR game can occasionally help us non-LOTR players find some inspiration or motivation for trying something new in Warhammer. Also, the free bonus book that came with it - the Fall of Medusa V summer campaign book - was very well done for a free add-on. I am primarily a Warhammer Fantasy player but I couldn't help but be excited about the new campaign. Going to have to start up a new 40k army soon...
