Jain Zar had a laminated front and only the spine is leather effect, so it's the only bit at risk. The front and back being laminate are relatively bomb proof. I've only started Jain Zar so I've no idea how the spine will hold up. But I've had 3 out of the 4 replaced so far, hopefully won't need a 4th.
I'm not buying the ebook. I want the book delivered and in good quality in the edition i buy without having to spend more to put a book on the shelf. I hate ebook anyway

I have actually made order before this offer for ebook was available. I don't have much time reading at home so I would appreciate ebook in this case. I guess I will have to contact BL separately.

What about golden pages ? Does it wear over time as well ?

I've never had a problem with the gilt edges on the pages. My main problem has been the spine. Here is my carrion throne copy after one reading. As you can see there is little trace of gold left.

So many juicy revelations and suprises. Dark Imperium is set 112 years past the Gathering Storm events. I rate Dark Imperium as 10/10, a rare sublime classic.
Ooooo exciting. Much more looking forward to this now.

I think acceptance of Age of Sigmar might have gotten a lot better if they had more competent authors doing the initial books and not just the B team delivering glorified battle reports. Dark Imperium is how you do it right, with a truly juicy book to herald a new and SIGNIFICANT edition.

I do wonder if the new storyline progression will have most authors jumping to post gathering storm, as thats where all the new buzz and excitement lies. So i honestly expect non-horus heresy content to be severely dialed down to focus on the new era, outside of ongoing trillogies getting finished.

The floodgates is after all opening with the timeline seemingly progressing post 999.M41.

I really hope that they elaborate on some of the major events that happened during the Indomitus Crusade. Some major events get glossed over ridiculously quickly. However, I am assuming this is on purpose and it will get fleshed out by other books.

Some examples:

https://www.warhammer-community.com/...dark-imperium/

An interview with Guy Haley about Dark Imperium, a quite interesting read. And one noteworthy comment:

Finally, exclusively on Warhammer Community, I can reveal to you right now that this story doesn’t end with Dark Imperium. The novel is part one of a series, so there’ll be more to come from me on the matters of Guilliman, Cawl, the Primaris Space Marines, and Mortarion.


Intriguing I say!
