Got my copy of the June issue(260) today. Ignoring for a moment the ownership subject, if anyone thinks this is not £4.00 worth of publication they are dillusional
It is about 110pages worth with a wide variety of articles. Of course there is a clear FoW influence but their stuff is very attractive looking!
There is a strong 'advertorial' element but bloody hell, we can be hypocrites sometimes. We want good products, we want to know what is out there yet we criticise companies for punting there products!
No one has to buy them! Anyone with a little imagination can strike out
WARHAMMER or FoW or whatever and substitute your own favourite rule set into the scenarios - minimum imagination required.
I think it looks great! It smells of organisation and professionalsm and value for money.. if those qualities are bad then fetch me my sack cloth, ashes, birch twigs and outside toilet
I was paid for my contribution with my cheque inside the free copy envelope. That has never happened from any magazine before in the 15 years I have been contributing. I have very frequently waited more than a year to be paid or not been paid at all (also several times)
Hats off to Dan and his corporate meglomaniacal backers
