If you come here for my White Dwarf Wednesdays you know I am a big fan of early (pre #100) of White Dwarf.
While I was not a fan of WD after it became devoted only Warhammer I didn't fault it because that was the trend for magazines at the time.
I might be stuck still in the 80s but White Dwarf did move on, in fact there was a recent posting about how we are going to be getting a new and improved WD magazine, http://lasgunpacker.blogspot.com/2012/09/white-dwarf-relaunch.html
But it also looks like Games Workshop is having troubles with some of the older issues. Namely being able to prove what they may or may not own.
A post over at Pork's Expanse explains it better: http://theporkster.blogspot.com/2012/09/what-gw-owns.html
As does Russ Nicholson himself, http://russnicholson.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-horror-of-it-all.html.
I really enjoyed Russ' art in WD's golden age, and I hope he can get this all sorted out.
This and the latest Kickstarter-based-project drama though shows me one thing:
I don't have a clue about what drama is going in the various gaming blogs.
Well, unless I start it of course. I don't think I am being particular obtuse and I do read all the same things everyone else is (I assume). I mean I am not reading message boards hardly anymore (ha! see what I did there) and my Google+ participation is not as high as it could be.
I'll see some good posts and think to myself, "that is a good post, but what the hell are you talking about?"
Maybe it is the nature of blogs. We sometimes feel that everyone is reading the exact same things we are because they are reading at least some of the same things we are.
