That is absolute bullshit!! Worst promotion idea BL have ever had, all that means it that only the people who obsessively buy from BL will be able to get Lemartes, something that I would have really considered getting as I love anything to do with the Blood Angels.

Well technically it costs nothing. But I see your point. This shouldn't be a problem for me though, as I often buy quite a lot of BL novels in batch.

That being said, can't wait to see what people put these on Ebay for....

Despite having spent the best part of 2 grand over the years on Black Library books, and nearer 15 grand on Warhammer, 40K, Forge world and Warhammer Forge books and models from the actual stores/sites with nearly 12 years support? But I have never spent more than £45 on the Black Library site, so I have no service studs.

Get anal fucked by an cactus coated with ghost chilli, Games Workshop/Black Library, and choke on my shit as i push it down your oesophagus with my massive chode.

At the rate they are putting stuff out now you'd either have to buy each and every LE that comes out, or buy older products along with the new to have the six service studs in time. (I remember when 3 books a month, all new, used to be the minimum for BL. Now we are lucky to get more than one new book a month.)

Basically this entire thing adds up to this; spend £270 by April 15th and get a free LE novella.

Luckily enough, I haven't bought all the Collectors Editions yet, and my OCD is hating me for it. So Now it's just a case of buying them to make it up.

As nice as the CE's are, I can't bring myself to spend £20 on a book that I already have. I only have the first three HH books in CE because BL send them to me in the final review package they actually sent out, and I buy all the new HH books in CE.

The only one I am considering getting is Fulgrim, because that was the first HH/40k/WHF book I read and the first book I read that got me into reading. Prior to that i'd read almost nothing in my life. And now I have five bookcases that are full of or nearly filled with books. :grin:

For that Fulgrim will always be special to me.

That really does look lovely! bit of a shitty way to get it though for those that wont spend that amount needed.
And what an absolute shame that you have to spend £45 in 1 order to get a stud, if it was a case of every £45 from now til April that got you a stud then ok.

The real problem here is that having over the past year spent well over a grand on picking up every BL novel in stock on their website I have nothing to buy right now with the exception of the two First Editions coming up. Looking at what BL has released over the past months there has been barely anything new, just a constant stream of re-relases and different formats along with a flood of e-shorts.

Provided I manage to get my hands on both of the First Editions I get two badges, but I would still have to dig up 240€ worth of books to buy from them between now and April. At this pace I will be buying Gallery Prints and hardback HH books just to get enough service studs.

That's bad, that whopping order of £300 would only net you 1 whole stud. 2 if you bought them separately. I mean wow BL, really? spend over the required amount to get 6 studs but not get them. Huge fucking issue there.

Synopsis sounds crap. I have no interest whatsoever in earning these 'studs'. :)

Regardless, it's a very odd (and unfair) way to measure brand loyalty.

When you spend £45 or more in one purchase at BL, you get a stud, just one though no matter how much you spend. Then if you have six by April, you get Lemartes. They can be used for nothing else and will disappear after April.
