For those who want an incomplete but nicely packaged set of the current rules?

I don't get it.
It's all the current in print codexes (well at the time of this release anyways), plus the core rules for less than they cost individually all in a single box. So for people who want those other books and don't own them yet it's a decent investment.

As a collector of things, I appreciate complete collections I guess. Glad to see yet another good deal showing up from the folks at GW though, to be sure. It irks me when their bundles are literally the cost of all the kits separately and recently they have had a massive slew of deals.

I like the box. I think it is more for the fluff than gaming since many need only one or two codexes, but the thing that bugs me: they left out the fluff part of the rulebook (Dark Millennium)!!!

If you do a library edition, please include the actual book what gives you the best idea of the whole 40k.

One-clicks are always the same price, the boxed collections of things (like the Hammer of Cadia: http://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Hammer-of-Cadia ) are cheaper than the individual.

Yup, that's what irks me. I have plenty of clicks for the internet (a dozen just utilized typing this post), and they have no place in the 'new releases' section. Next time I'll keep my vernacular straight for ya buddy :eek:k:

That's a cool set but, as far as 7th codices go, it'll be incomplete as soon as orks come out, and obviously no necron dex either. One of those expensive releases that always makes me wonder who is going to buy it.

Never underestimate the appetite of fan-boys to buy multiple copies of the same thing so they can simply say they have "it". Got to love it sometimes.

if all the codices were fully up to date and in hardback format then i could see myself getting it. i have the hardback A5 6th ed rules and would love an A5 codex.

as it stands though in its incomplete form then GW can jog on
