Here's what I wrote in the other thread:
If average rating is a 5 on a 1 to 10 scale I would say its about a 4.
firstly a 6 because of the pretty good death world article and little paint tutorials very nice.
However -1 due to emptiness of empire section, I was REALLY looking foward to this but no designers notes or anything blergh.
Another minus 1 for the slop shoddy wolves/nids report, for a start it should have been last issue and this issue an empire one. Secondly it felt forced and empty and too rushed with no proper maps etc, plus 'oh look best monstrous creatures in the book eat the opponent because he has nothing to counter them even though the opponent was doing better objectives wise.'
Overall a big disappointment could have been much better.
