Default $3,000 Horus Heresy Collection?

Looking at my HH collection tonight which I'm re-buying in HB as they are released. Started running the numbers and it gets pretty scary when you start adding it all up.

Up to 25 books now at $45 a pop for the HB's. That's $1125 eventually!
Up to 5 LE Novellas now at $75 a pop. That's $375 already!
A nice stack of audio dramas, Probably $100-$150 there.
If you guesstimate in another 20 odd books to finish the series + LE's + audio drams + who knows what along the way

My god...

I could have a $3,000+ Horus Heresy collection on my shelf by the end. That's more than our run about car is worth! I would seriously have to consider adding the collection to my home and contents insurance as a special item!

When the HH began... Did anyone expect to own a $3,000 Heresy collection? I sure didn't.

I've bought one book but read half the series. Due to how often I have moved in the last 10 years my book collection has been paired down like mad, and as far as this hobby goes my money is best spent on the actual models/gaming. The thing that changed it all: .epub files.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Added up like that, that's a LOT. Personally, I buy all the books that way I can have the full collection. I just wish they'd stop releasing BS short stories and write an actual f'n book!

OUCH!

I'm going to share in your pain - I've started buying the hardbacks... wallet = raped.

Current PhD student at Exeter University - "For the Glory - The Development of Battlefield tactics throughout the Ancient World."

Moments that amused me; Sevatar Prince of Crows

(When running into Alastor Rushal "The Raven" on the Invincible Reason)
"You won't believe how I got here."

(When told that a Commodore has survived an ambush and is now the highest ranking survivor.)
"That makes him the new fleet admiral. Offer him my insincere congratulations on a rank he earned purely by being the last naval officer standing. But what's the bad news?"
