Irregular Magazine - Review

 The magazine's layout is very well done.  The articles all have a consistent and well balanced layout, with the good use of images and text.  I found the pure black and white colours of text and page a bit boring but it works well enough, and perhaps other colours would distract from the content.  The images work well; all of them fit the text on the page and are formatted to be an accompaniment to the text.  Something they do very well.

The tutorials and painting articles are quite simple to follow and understand, along with good pictures for each step in the guides.  They make good reads and I believe most with a decent understanding of highlighting and shading can follow them to a decent degree.  There are a couple that are for the more advanced hobbyist - such as the casting article.  In the future I would like to see a better range of articles, going from some quite basic or beginner articles all the way to advanced/expert ones.  In addition to these articles there are some good gaming articles, a lot dealing with RPGs, something that seems to be a trend with the previous issues also.  Personally, I’d quite like to see more varied gaming articles, incorporating other gaming systems.

Overall, the magazine itself is pretty damn good.  I enjoy reading it and think its great to see a hobby heavy webzine being produced and look forward to more issues in the future.


  1. Thanks for your feedback - we always like to hear from our readers.

    Would you be interested in submitting an article in the future?

  2. Wow, that would be awesome. Maybe I would do, but it would have to quite a bit into the future. :)

    Good work on the magazine and good luck for the future issues.
