Default Got my collectors edition today!!

Well i was one of the crazy 3500 people to hand over a shed load for the collectors edition, and i have to say its bloody nice! Its getting on for about 3 inch thick, the pages are like card,it weighs a ton, its sewn together.

Had a little flick through, looks nice, im getting the impression that we are gonna see a push towards an appocalypse style FB game as massed armies seem to be everywere and the amount of times skaven and high elves are featured is pretty astounding.

is it worth the money? depends if you want to use it as a rule book or a reference book, I bought it because i will sit and read it on an evening and refer to it plus my brother will shit bricks when he sees it and cant get one.

I got standard one yesterday, I think spending 75 on any book is too much. I like it how they had to put a little correction leaflet in it, lazy gits. I also hate it how they say 'roll a dice' instead of 'roll a die', it annoys me so much. Apart from that and some rules it is an excellent book.

I'm still just going to wait and see if one comes in the starter pack in september.

Don't get me wrong the books are really nice, but way too expensive if you know all the basics already, all the bits after the rules are either pictures or filler for the most part.

The roll a dice is due to both the writers and target audience, they don't want to confuse a young kid

I think the BRB could have been shorter, very often you'll find that they explain a rule three times over in two paragraphs, instead of being plain and simple (well it is simple but you have to fight your way through whole forests of bullshit which can be exhausting I tell you). And the amount of pictures... goodness. Oh and I recommend checking the Slaughter at Volganof, especially the photos of the armies... makes Apocalypse look like a sci-fi playground in comparison.

The fool, the coward, and the ignorant proclaim that the warp is a realm of unknowable peril and indescribable terror, that it is the hell of countless ancient myths and legends. This is a lie, told by those whose authority is based on lies, to keep the masses terrified of the unknown. The warp is limitless power and its secrets are infinite; it is knowledge and strength, life and death, and the untapped potential to make and remake worlds. It takes only the discipline and the will to shape it; those who lack that clarity of purpose are liable to be shaped by it instead.

Just been reading the terrain section, very impressed with it, some very nice things included.

I spent 75 on the gamers edition which I'm really chuffed with. I've played more Warhammer in the last few days that in the 17 years I've been in the hobby. The collectors edition looks really gorgeous but after buying a leatherbound 40K rulebook which now takes up space to no purpose I took the long view and went with the regular edition which is book enough for me

...Anyone buy that story? Quite convincing I think

It's partially true but the other half of the story is that they were long gone when I came to preorder my rulebook, D'OH!
