I mentioned that it would be good to get access to a bunch of artwork through Warhammer+. Esp concept art and other such things.

I know GW have their Warhammer Art website (which is even more unloved than Forgeworld as the Warhammer Art is never marketed or anything); but the prices are high and the range limited.

OF course better would be printed books, but I think Warhammer+ could at least show off a lot more concept work and such.

I wished for a conversion gallery where you can compare the scale of different miniatures. 'Does this tree revenant arm matches the size of this a wraithguard body?' 'How large is a Deredo dread compared to a Redemptor?', etc. Easy to implement with existing content but of great use to me.

GW is starting to lose me. I think I will unsubscribe soon and just buy the pineapples fig from ebay.

It's probably just me but I dont really think GW's content cuts it for me outside of the miniature games. Guess my age and the intended target age for GW (10-15 yrs?) have something to do with it...? Being involved in the hobby in one form or another since the early 90's, this stuff is just too basic for my sensibilities.

You at least give it a go, maybe it will bet better in a year or so.
I would suggest feed backing the reason you unsubscribed, that may turn out useful for their service.

I cant comment on the W+ content I haven't seen it but what I have seen on twitch the extremely boring "everything is awesome!!!" attitude. Lets just say I cant watch it more than a couple minutes before disconnecting.

Glad the release was not global, I do not mind dropping the money for the sniper and then some more for the megaboss when I can grab them where I live, but right now the content is just enough to fill up a Mega folder.

If you're talking about their Hobby Hangout and/or Preview streams, I don't know what you were expecting? They're both done by GW employees and are barely disguised marketing and advertising. Were you hoping for discussion about how much the presenters dislike the new releases, or talk about how the prices are too high? Of course the Twitch streams are going to have an "everything is awesome, this (GW)hobby is amazing!" attitude.

You could call literally everything GW puts out that. And you wouldn't be wrong in any case.

I mean there's nothing wrong with enjoying something. Some youtube channels even manage to like GW releases without diving down into a long rant about prices every single time something is released

Surely you mean to say the random and out of the blue flashback episode?

Not that I have a problem with anything the episode actually shows, but...

Spoiler:
... it's an unconnected info dump whose timing seems to be entirely motivated by keeping up fake mystery about the captain's status throughout earlier episodes. There is no narrative build up to the actual content of the flashback that ties in with the here and now shown in the previous episodes. It just happens because the mystery is solved in the previous episode and now that there's no risk of giving away the Genestealer Cult surprise they can happily indulge in all the Terminator action they didn't get to show earlier (#bolterporn4life). They also use the opportunity to give us, the audience, the lowdown on the Servitor hook, without any of that being revealed to the protagonist. Which is basically the opposite of what the rest of the episode is about, and will require needless repetition down the line so Deathwatch Boy gets to know, too, and pick up the quest from where the captain left off.

It's fun in isolation, yeah. But the storytelling structure is pretty dodgy in my opinion.

There's a middle ground between criticising your own product (which nobody could reasonably expect) and a "this is AWESOME!!!11!!1!" attitude. Other companies manage to find that middle ground and provide interesting, informative content without going overboard. I suspect that's what NAVARRO would prefer as it's also the approach I prefer.

Just to add my two cents with regards to the battlereports:

I love the TT tactics crowds and always have a bit of a watch pf the batreps, but seldomly really follpw them closely, its always difficult for me, to follow at some point. So at some point I phase out. Cant really tell you any result of a batrep. Same with other channels (except play on). But I found the GW batreps really entertaining and they drew me in, to the point I actually followed the battle. So I really like their presentation and the format.

Let's judge the storytelling aspect of that...when the actual story comes out, yea?

I'm just wondering when they're going to wake Ignis up. I mean, why all the foreshadowing if you're never going to see him waddle into combat - the angriest washing machine!

And we did get a very chipper Tech-Priestess out of this one, so that was nice.

Yes that was what I meant. I prefer the informative content rather than the shallow ( best thing ever) every couple minutes.
So what do I expect from a stream that is all about delivering content? Enjoyable content, not an amateur at best relentless sales pitch.
I hope that W+ is much better than what we see on streams though, but I dont know.

The world is not all polarised like that, not everything is awesome or everything is horrible... you know middle ground.

As for Mr Grey the - its an GW employee thats expected...
Well good Sir every GW employee is an individual first and I have had the pleasure to meet several GW store managers on their stores with the instructions to sell things to me... Yes a few were the brainless- THIS IS AWESOME! but in my experience the Majority of the GW employees are polite and not brainless or unable to talk and give middle ground opinions and advices regarding products and even miniatures overall... The later gets my business.

I would suggest not painting everyone with such wide brush though.

All GW streams and videos include an armed gunman just outside the frame that's going to execute the employee on the spot if they fail to upholds the company standard of BestThingEver/Minute.

Or at least that's how it feels like.

No, that comment was judging the content of episode 5 based on the content of episodes 1-4.

Probably because that's how most television series relased on streaming services worked, they had their entire seasons relased all at ones? The Boys, Stranger Things, Lost in Space, The Witcher, Love Death + Robots, The Man In High Castle, just to name a few. And streaming services is like, y'know, the thing GW is trying to ape?

Well, except The Boys, that one was released weekly, save for the first couple eps.

The entire first season was relased in one day, as well as half the second one.

The first season was not released in one day, at least here in Spain. I watched it on release dates. Same with the second one.

Anyways, moot point ^^. Netflix popularized the release binge quite a while ago, although it's true that lately some companies have decided to revert back to weekly release to generate more hype. Disney+ and HBO would be the most prominents, but I think Apple TV also does it.

Adults, on the other hand, are completely patient and no demand for faster/instant release schedules ever comes from anyone over 18. Similarly, kids of previous generations were also patient and never expressed any desire to not wait for something they wanted. It's really just kids from this current time period exactly who want things fast.
