One question I have is will people figure out a way to render the ipad codices as a pdf? Could you simply print the screen of each page and compile it into a pdf? It sure would be nice to have an up to date version of the codices so I don't have to have my codex and a pdf with me just to do anything. I do hope at some point there is a reasonable option for non-ipad holders. It's funny that it's only for Ipad, as I have an iphone, Ipod, Macbook pro, Ipod touch, and still don't have access to the damn codices lol.

4,220 CSM
2,320 Necrons
1,870 eldar
1,000 witch hunters (trying to get rid of this)
1,000 SM (trying to get rid of this)
680 Tau (newest addition)

Well the Necrons Codex is $33 so at least they're not all gonna be over priced like the SM code, which is still $42. Still thinking about getting the rulebook digitally.

Have guns, will travel...

Thats fucked up mate. Lucky me I have an iPad, but I would love to have it on my MacBook Pro and iPhone as well.

Especially on the iPhone.

Edit: Space Marine Tactica? Written by GW? Jesus christ, and they expect to get a penny for that? No thanks.

Well, where else do you expect to find a WH40k tactica!??!? Dude, it's not like there are forums dedicated to that all over the net. Jeez, you're lucky to have GW to fill up your life. Please call your friends right now, because, soon, you'll be able to buy some on the iStore, made expressely by GW. Rumors are, the Marneus one is a bit chatty, but very nice...

Chapter Approved: Ork Bommer 2.99

Wait wait wait.... so you are going to have to pay money for chapter approved rules? They wont simply be available for free on GWs website? I guess this is proof they are going to demand money for the Sisters of Battle WD faildex, if they even intend to release it at all. I'd say the reason it's not available is because they intend to release it as a full priced shitty Ipad codex...

As much as I can see the logic in that theory, when does logic apply to what GW does? Don't get me wrong, I want a legal downloadable codex too, but for GW to sit on it over a year to put it on the iPad? Somehow I think that is giving their bean counters too much credit.

These rules are identical to the rules that appeared in White Dwarf. Its not new. Its for those who want the rules without buying the WD. Were these previously available for free from the website? Genuine question.

Also: they released an update to the C:SM. Nothing new (e.g. flakk missiles) but the FAQ working updates are all in there. Telion is now listed as having a Camo Cloak. Here's a question for you. Telion has a camo cloak (+1 to his save making it 3+) and Stealth giving him and his unit +1 to their saving throw. Would this give Telion a 2+ save and everyone else a 3+ assuming they were all in cover? It only specifies Stealth as being cumulative with Shroud. Makes me wonder why they gave him a camo cloak if he provides Stealth since he can't detach from the unit.

~600 points of Necrons - Phase 1
1500 points of Imperial Fists - Pictures Coming Soon
