Warhammer: Visions was a magazine created by the makers of White Dwarf magazine.[1]


Warhammer: Visions was a 228 pages monthly hobby magazine published by Games Workshop. It was launched in February of 2014 and was discontinued in July of 2016 after 30 issues[1][2] and also when White Dwarf moved to a monthly release rather than a weekly; and was sold for 9€ (or $12 USA, $13 CAN, £7,50, 80 skr, 75 nkr, 70 dk, 35 zl) at the same time as White Dwarf Weekly.

The magazine was mostly comprised of full page pictures of Citadel Miniatures from all of their active gamelines at the time, but also included was "store finder" pages with the address of all official Warhammer stores at the time, a subscription page for Warhammer visions and White Dwarf. Another characteristic of the magazine was the translation of the text surrounding the pictures in English, French and German. [Needs Citation]
