If you listen to gaming podcasts such as Heelanhammer, Podhammer, and Bad Dice, you'll probably have heard of a Warhammer based magazine currently on the market called 'Unseen Lerker', after hearing a number of positive reviews I decided to give it a go. I've not been a fan of gaming magazines in the past, but I decided to give this one a go for a number of reasons:
- It's had some fantastic reviews
- It focuses on Warhammer Fantasy
- It's only published six times a year.
But anyway, Unseen Lerker is much better, even with my super-slow reading rate (I'm not stoopid, I'm just busy, okay?) I manage to read the magazine (and re-read my favourite articles) before the next issue drops through my letterbox. Oh, and that's another point, and perhaps the greatest attribute of the magazine; it's a proper print and paper magazine, so you can, as they say themselves: 'Read it on the loo, not on the screen'. It's not one of those horrible pdf magazines or blogs that you can only read while sat in front of a computer. Erm...
I subscribed a few months ago based on the positive reviews and I've not regretted it, the magazine is a great mix of hobby and gaming articles written by those people who are genuinely involved and excited by gaming.

In addition, Bobo has kindly given me an extra copy of the mag that I'll pop in the post to one lucky reader. If you'd like to go into the draw for a copy of the magazine simply send me an email, with the title 'Unseen Lerker competition' and I'll draw out one lucky winner. Get your entries to me by midnight (British summer time) on Wednesday 11th May (that's nearly two weeks from now) and I'll get in contact with the winner within a couple of days.
I hope you like the article, if so give the magazine a try and make sure that you tell them that Frugal Dave sent you.
