I guess that's possible, but it does go against the new GW tactic of putting out all the 'new' stuff in the first wave

Funny to hear about the new GW policy between the WoC and Daemon waves October/November last year and while waiting for new Tyranid and Dark Eldar flyers.

Imagine the people's reaction, if the new Tau flyer would have looked like this (upcoming Antenocitis Workshop model):

While the new flyer bears a resemblance to the bastard love-child of a Devilfish and a Piranha, I couldn't help but be reminded of something else....the Leopard CV Dropship from Battletech, just move the wings, hell even the tail turret is the same.

I wonder the same thing. In this day of cameras built into just about everything, how does someone take a bad photo of a WD?

It's like this scoopers went to the "how to film UFO sightings" school of photography.

You'd be surprised. Being surreptitious when taking a photo with your boss over your shoulder can be difficult.

Or they just are terrible at taking pictures.

This. While it's possible to get a bit of alone time in the warehouse to snap the odd picture, it's hard to do it with no one else noticing you've disappeared with a bit of product that needs to be packed for shipping. Not to mention a lot of places like this don't actually allow phones on the premesis for this reason (my brother works at a warehouse where they only allow phones in the lobby, and even have various metal detectors set up at 'strategic' points). Warehouses that have any amount of security will spot most of what's going on. So sneaking away to snap a shot with a phone isn't going to result in 1920x1080 resolution, perfectly framed photos of the pages in question. The photos we get are very much what you'd expect from a guy who got 20 seconds alone with the magazine and his phone he managed to hide away in the usual place.

You have to remember people who snap these leaks generally want to keep their job.

1. If this is a store owner (or even employee), why does he need to take the picture quickly?
2. If this is a customer, why can’t they just buy the WD and take the photos at their own leisure? And if they can’t buy it, they’re obviously being shown it by a friendly manager, which doesn’t really gel with the idea of quickly trying to take a photo.
3. And if it’s in a warehouse... are we seriously saying that we think people are breaking into warehouses to take bad phone-camera pictures of WD?

1 - no, or it would be better.
2 - No, they don't have them yet (and they would be better).
3 - No silly man, it would be a person who works in the warehouse/printshop/etc. place taking the picture.

Some times we get pictures that are better or worse.

I personally know of a guy who worked at a store who manged to sneak pictures of a new book before official release (they got their stock in a couple days early) - his boss did not let them touch them - he had to take the pics in a very rushed fashion while the boss was at lunch.

not everything that does not meet expectations or desire is a conspiracy.

But they are out to get you...

It's likely not a store owner or a store employee. The previous leaks have been from the printing company that does White Dwarf and likely continue to be from there as well.
Given that Games Workshop seems to have been actually aware of the leaks coming from the printing company, the printing company has likely had to up punitive measures to keep their contract with GW.

I doubt it's from any kind of "break in", but rather it's just an employee taking advantage of access to send a "Screw you" to Games Workshop. Or it could be similar to what was happening with BioWare's multiplayer DLCs for Mass Effect 3 where someone who had close ties to an employee was leaking the material without the employee's knowledge.

What, no one picked up on a Supertroopers reference? :(

I am constantly flabbergasted by the way GW prices things. Current price of three Crisis suits is $89.25 Cdn, new price is $90. Are there any other industries that have a price increase for buying more of an item? The existence of Costco (and the like) would indicate a discount of some kind would in order. I guess they don't have anything like that in the UK? :(

The new Broadsides better be amazing, because I can order the FW ones for $12 less than these new ones.

Very well could be, I know FASA basically got destroyed via litigation over stolen Intellectual Property from the Anime genre and it's numerous studios and sub-types.

With my existing barracuda and x2 remoras I think the double FOC lists I can make will be mean enough to cause problems. I've also got a Gamesday shaper ready to be my Kroot HQ. I really hope my 60+ kroot aren't out of a job come April and that the Faeit rumors are correct and the Riptide gets a Railcannon or the equivalent. Otherwise that might just be a counts as hammerhead. :(

I wouldn't hold your breath...I really have a sneaking suspicion that the Kroot and Vespid will be curiously absent from this release. Their removal from the battleforce and absence from the photos gives me some pause on whether they made the cut. On the other hand, perhaps they are in other photos that will remain to be seen, who knows?

FASA didn't get "destroyed" by anything. They simply got out of the business after a very orderly shutdown (I was a freelancer during this time). The issue of licensing Japanese anime is so hopelessly confused and ridiculous that FASA had been moving away from using that imagery since they introduced the Clans.

Why didn't you just make a sensible number 3? here, it's not hard.

3. Someone at the printing house or a distribution warehouse snuck a phone in, and not having time to frame and mount individual pages for clear photography in a light box, took some rushed photos while people weren't looking.
