Noticed this over at the TFE forums. Look like the Primarchs series will be entirely hardback as hinted. But i sure hope it will have an ebook option.

You are talking to a man who originally gave FtT a 10/10 review

And this reply is from a guy who thinks that because I like a book, and an author, he dislikes, my opinion is no longer valid.

I don't think I have to spell out what my reply is to that. But the first half of it is a curse word.

Never said any of that. Please don't be so insecure about your opinion.

No not directly. But this is not the first time you've used my endorsement of Fear to Tread as a subtle putdown of me. Frankly it's annoying. You don't like Jim Swallow or his books, fine. I do, also fine. But just because I like them doesn't mean that my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt.

There are people on this site who LOVE Legion. They consider it one of the best books in the entire HH series. I think of it as being one of the five weakest (Along with Battle for the Abyss and Prospero Burns, eg). But just because those people enjoy Legion and I don't doesn't mean I think their opinion on the books overall is lesser.

I would like to make 2 points here...

1. Saying "I really liked FtT" is different from giving the novel a perfect 10/10 endorsement as a reviewer

2. I cite your 10/10 endorsement of FtT not to "put you down" - but rather to highlight the utterly irreconcilable difference between your taste and AoB's (which happens to align with mine in this case)

Ye gods, an 18 books first edition series that is limited to 2500 books in stock? I could stomach a large first edition series if it was persistently from a high end author like adb or abnett.

But a long first edition series with mid tier authors too in the mix? Im gonna wait for the ebook versions, doesnt really feel worth it for an 18 books series. Even more so if they turn out to not be properly sized, as BL seems to love doing small books these days to trust their definition of novels in blind faith alone for a first edition series.

At least the Black Legion series put out a healthilly sized book as its first offering by a top author and is a series I want to support.

What's the estimates out there for price? Ifs it's anymore than 25 I would be pretty miffed. The age of sigmar limited editions are stunning books, (contents are shite, but nice books, bought the first two and gave up) I think the nicest they have done yet. They are 25 so no reason for these to be more.

A limited edition novella is 30, so I'd expect these to be 40 to 45!
