i think its just another GW scam to get people to buy models as all the hobby articles have been shoved aside and in their place a whole bunch of flashy commericals for certain models go across the screen. i think they just made another step towards digging their own grave.
wow i cant even look at painting tips anymore at gameswork shop without being directed to something to buy SHAME ON YOU gamesworkshop!
Well I'm glad to say the UK website hasn't changed yet If you want to find any of the old hobby articles, go look there.

I'm guessing they've actually listened to their consumer base for once, but on the wrong topic!
They have probably taken note of the fact that everyone thinks WD sucks now, and as sales of this catalogue have dropped they need somewhere else to post their awful ''look, new, shiney, buy please!'' (heh, that just gave me an idea for a lolcat pic, but anyway) adverts.

I don't see why any of you think its strange to find advartisements on their site. They are a busniness, and what does a business have to do to survive? Advartise. How is that a scam? *false* advartisement would be a scam.
Of course... I prefer the hobby articles too, but from a business perspective this is probably a smart choice. Those of us complaining about it are already fans and love the game to much to quit anytime soon. The site seem to be designed more for new players. As hardcore fans, we know how to dig deeper and get the cool information that is beyond all the shiny adds on the surface of the main GW website.
And I easily found lots of hobby articles on the site, in fact I think they are esaier to find now. Its just a more streamlined version of the original with more ads.
Well, I'm not really thrilled about the new design either as I got used to navigating the old site, but that's not a real problem. My biggest complaint is that the site lags terrible when scrolling.

While I find the focus away from articles disapotiign, there is one thing I like avbout the new site. It is now much easier to order the figures you need. Random special weapons and such are gone, now you can choose the special weapons you need. IN the Imperial Guard section, the non-Cadian regiments are easy to find. I think while the site is now focused on buying, it is now much easier to buy.

I think their new layout is really good ;Y

The layout's fine. I wish it ran a little more smoothly. It gives me some real drag time loading pages.
I only looked at VC but the tactica articles are still there. All the indexes I made seem to be a thing of the past now and will need serious updating.
