Readers to Faith & Steel will likely already be aware of White Dwarf moving from monthly to weekly. Given the often rather thin content in the monthly, it remains to be seen just how it will go.
Good luck to them (I know a few bloggers who might be willing to supply copy …)
What I wanted to put here is not a” how dare they?” sort of thing – there are plenty of forums that have that niche down pat. And, the workshop facebook presence has the cheer squad side covered.
My observation is on the number of images of edition one of White Dwarf I’ve seen about.
I’ve got this sneaking suspicion that most folk using this image don’t actually have a first edition.
I don’t either, but a search of the F&S archive that remains neither classified nor seized by our good friends of the Inquisition has revealed a couple of White Dwarf treasures.
Which includes what is (presumably) the second airing of such D&D beasties as the Githyanki, and a selection of Thrud the Barbarian. Gold, in a faded and dusty sort of way.
Finally there is an honourable mention to Battle hobby magazine – virtual hands up who remembers that – which in September 1977 had a review welcoming a new magazine from Games Workshop (in Uxbridge Rd, London – not Nottingham, people!) for 50p.
