"New" GW magazines

Hello,
I wanted to write some stuff on the new GW magazines for some time now but I have decided to give them a one running time, especially the White Dwarf. So what do we get from the new titles? Basically, we have the old White Dwarf divided into two halves. One deals with quality pictures and the second one features actual articles and thoughts of the GW WD team plus some new stuff like the column on the use of tyranids or gluing stuff together.
I new thing are also the rules for new miniatures in the WD weekly. I think the guys in White Dwarf are trying to put some quality into their articles. I do not feel the pressure on me to buy new GW miniatures "because they are so great" as it was with the old WD. Sure, we get the new releases with pictures and some advertisement but it is not so overwhelming as it used to be and I would count this as a plus. I particularly like the columns in the WD, their standard improved. You need to read them to find out what I am saying. What I do not like but what I was suspecting is the time spread in presenting new releases like with the dwarves. First, there were some models, later more models and finally the army book. Kinda creates the mood for "oh my god what will come next" but seriously I got used to the old schedule and I must say I liked it. Maybe soon I will adjust, but for now I say nay.
Now, the Visions. I bought the too and I must say I cannot make up my mind about them. On the other hand we get a hmmm... "art catalogue" that one can watch and admire for a long time, return to it, view the pics, try to learn from them, but on the other hand what else is there? And why the hell this ridiculous format? (Well, probably printing costs ;-)) Not much to read in the Visions magazine apart from Blanchitsu and the battle report, but there are pics. What more, ah pics. And I almost forgot, pics. If I am correct, the trend with Visions will be to show the last month releases, all of the in one place and make a battle report with the newly released army update. So I guess, we will see a lot of beautiful dwarf pictures next issue in 5 days.
I must say that I cannot afford buying both the new weekly White Dwarf plus the Visions and for example some miniatures or other GW products. It just costs too much right now. So, for the time being I will hang to the Visions and smile to the pictures of miniatures that cost too much.

Warmachine Cygnar Thorn UPDATED PICS

Hello all, today I would like to present you my newest addition to my Cygnar army, a light warjack called Thorn. He is a character warjack bonded with Victoria Haley which means that if he is a part of her battlegroup he gains some bonuses. In this case it means it can channel spells even if he is in melee combat. What is more, he is a great jack because of his set defense ability meaning that he gains a defense bonus while being charged and he has a defense bonus because of his shield. He can also disrupt jacks with is spear and does some cortex dmg while hitting with his shield. Plus if you channel a spell through him he can advance and he can do the same thing if an enemy attack misses him. What could you ask more?
Cześć i czołem, dzisiaj mój najnowszy dodatek do Cygnaru. Thorn, czyli Cierń, lekki charakterny jack, który związany jest więzią z Victorią Haley co oznacza mniej więcej tyle, że jak jest w jej battlegroupie to może być przekaźnikiem czarów nawet, gdy jest związany walk…
