Default 5th Edition Rulebook Art and Pages

Went into my local GW today and pre-ordered the 5th Edition Rulebook, loads of page excerpts on one wall. These aren't all of them by any measure but they are some of the coolest/most useful.






(new art and background....don't think GW are dropping the Dark Eldar)

Most amazing....cannot wait for it to come out.

Adeptus Astartes Commandments
1. Thou shalt not replace the Librarian's staff with a magic wand.
2. Though shalt not refer to thine brethren, whom the Emperor has dictated be armed with an incendiary weapon, as a "Flamer" constantly. For this has been proven to lower morale and cause strife within His Most Holy showering facilities.
3. Thou shalt not follow a Librarian around thinking, "Can you hear me now", repetitively in an attempt to drive him insane.

I'll go back next week (when I'm off work again) and take pics of the rest of the pages....good thing about the 5th Edition Rulebook cover is that its deceptively empty but once you look closely theres absolutely loads of details.

Like the SM captain who appears to be wearing a Chaos Star, the shield over the warhammer having a engraving that looks like one of Heracles/Hercules mythical feats (was the Emperor, hercules?!).

That would be Torquemada Coteaz, Daemonhunters Inquisitor/Special Character. MAinly given away by his trademark double headed eagle and the large ' =][= ' symbol above his head. The bloke to his right appears to be Ad-Mech, far right IG in artificed style carapace (HSO special char???)and the far left is an un know smurf wearing what looks like MK III armor and carrying a heresy pattern bolter.

Love the new dark eldar art. The spikyness has been toned down but the sharp edges still keep them distinct from eldar

I'm walking towards you and drawing my sword. When it's drawn I shall kill you. And there's not a damn thing you can do to stop me.

The one in the pic looks almost like someone tossed in an eldar, a necron, and some spiky bits and hit 'blend'.
