Warhammer Gamer’s Edition
The Warhammer Gamer's Edition is a must-have for any Warhammer General. Packed with the instruments of war it includes: the Warhammer rulebook, eight Warhammer Skull Dice, the Warhammer Template Set and the Warhammer Counter Set, all of which is contained within a heavy canvas pack.

An Empire Soldier’s Kitbag
The Gamer's Edition comes with a unique Empire Soldier's kitbag. The bag has a main section and interior pocket, perfect for transporting the Warhammer rulebook, Warhammer Armies books, counters, templates, dice, ranging equipment and the assortment of paper and pens every gamer carries to war. What's more, the bag is a genuine Warhammer artefact - it's inscribed with the symbol of Karl Franz and has Empire coins as buttons.

Beastmen Battle Magic
The Beastmen's Lore of the Wild spell deck is the first in a number of army-specific Battle Magic cards. Beastmen players should be quick though, as, unlike the core deck, these will only be on shelves while stocks last.

Warhammer Battle Magic: Beastmen
Warhammer Battle Magic: Beastmen contains seven cards that detail all of the spells from the Beastmen Lore of the Wild spell deck. These large format cards are only available while stocks last - advance order your deck today.
The Gamer's Edition looks pretty cool. I don't know about the spell cards though, I'm not a fantasy player, so correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the spells included in the army books?

it would cost you about £50 to black and white photocopy the book. Yet its a full colour high quality product that ALOT of effort has gone in too. I for one was more than happy to pay the money for it in my local gw.
I don't get it. Why pay $75AUD more for a bunch of stuff you can make yourself? Is it some collector thing that I can't fathom/understand? I don't know about you guys, but half the fun of the hobby for me is doing preschool arts and crafts to make my own templates, markers, magic cards and wound counters.
simple answer, i have a job. This allows me the money to buy things i want, and also i justify my time differently. for the cost of some templates, i much rather pay it then "waste" an hour of my free time.
now if you enjoy craft then thats cool for you, or if your on a limited budget because you dont have a job.
