Here's some info and a glimpse of the new magazines directly from Games Workshop.
It’s just 12 days until the launch of the new, weekly White Dwarf and monthly Warhammer: Visions.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few weeks, you’ll know that the new White Dwarf magazine will be published every Saturday starting on 1st February, bringing you gaming tips and advice, painting guides, battle reports and oodles of pictures of Citadel miniatures every single week.
On top of that, we’ll also be launching our new monthly magazine on the same day – Warhammer: Visions. It’s an eye-popping hobby extravaganza packed from cover to cover with pictures of beautifully painted miniatures including everything from Golden Demon and Armies on Parade to Kit Bash, Blanchitsu and so much more.
You will be able to see both of these publications in Games Workshop stores and many independent stockists around the world on Saturday 1st February.
There will be digital editions of both weekly White Dwarf and monthly Warhammer: Visions.
White Dwarf will be available from the Black Library website in mobi format (for Kindles) and ePub format (for iPhones, iPads, iPod Touch, Android devices and pretty much anything else that reads eBooks). The address will be www.blacklibrary.com/whitedwarf. The ePub version will also be available from Apple iBooks.
Warhammer: Visions will be available for iPads from the Apple AppStore. On Saturday 1st February, the new version of our iPad app will be released, which will replace the existing White Dwarf app (but still allow access to all the previous editions of monthly White Dwarf). This will enable current (and new!) iPad subscribers to download the iPad edition of Warhammer: Visions.
Q&A for subscribers
We’ve had a few queries from subscribers about the new magazines, so we thought we’d share the questions and answers with you.
Current in-store White Dwarf subscriber?
You will be able to redeem your remaining subscription vouchers for a monthly copy of Warhammer: Visions in any Games Workshop store.
Current mail order White Dwarf subscriber?
If you have a subscription to the current White Dwarf magazine, your subscription will automatically switch over to Warhammer: Visions. With your first issue, we’re also sending you a free copy of the first issue of new White Dwarf weekly, along with a letter from Jes, the editor, explaining the changes. The price you pay will not change during your subscription period.
From March, we’ll begin mailing out your monthly subscriber copy of Warhammer: Visions early so that (Warp storms permitting, of course) you’ll receive your copy during the week before it goes on sale in stores.
Current White Dwarf iPad subscriber?
On Saturday 1 February you will need to update your app to the new version (which is free). You will then be able to download the launch edition of Warhammer: Visions, while still being able to view all your existing White Dwarf magazines. The price you pay will not change during your subscription period.
Will there be a subscription available for weekly White Dwarf?
There won’t be a subscription available for White Dwarf at launch. If for whatever reason you miss a copy, there will be a few weeks’ worth of back issues available at games-workshop.com (so long as stocks last). We’ll also have at least two or three issues of Warhammer: Visions available (again, so long as stocks last).
