I'm with Varakir on this, turned it into a Calendar, think this would have been a lot better!

I wonder if that's possibly a good idea to maybe raise funds for the forum to cover administration and running costs. I know Jezlad usually runs money drives. Perhaps if calendars can be printed at a decent price they can be sold to go back into the Heresy kitty?

I understand the whole demand v cost etc, so it may not be viable, but food for thought

That's a pretty cool idea. Not sure how it would be done, but it's pretty neat.

The most annoying thing about this book is that it looks like it's just directly copy/pasting the page layout/design from the pages of white dwarf. Which means all they've done is changed the page numbers, maybe added a forward. Stuck and contents in and bam, straight to market. A day's work, tops.

That said, I do like the idea of it, it's nice that GW are showcasing the community. As usual, it's just the price I'm against (grumble grumble, and all that anti GW bullshit)

Heresy calendar, eh? I could look into it. That kind of stuff isn't super expensive to print, since it's commonly used as a fundraiser. I'm doing so much else right now with distributors of random crap that it isn't even out of my way really to check on something like that.

Yea please look into it. I'm sure we can organise some nice decent enough images from a selection of our work to make into a calendar or something
