The rumor over the last few days was that codexes were all going to go hardcover starting with Orcs and Goblins for Fantasy, and that GW was going to raise the prices for them to $50 similair to other tabletop gamebook prices. Games Workshop now has posted on site the new Orcs and Goblins codex, so here it is.
This112-page full-colour, hardback Warhammer army book contains all the rules you need to field an Orc & Goblin army, as well as detailed background information, bestiary, accompanying artwork and miniatures showcase.
You will need a copy of Warhammer to use the contents of this book.
Availability: This product is available for pre-order and will be released on the 5th of March.
I think this is awesome. Games Workshop increasing the quality of the book, with a very small increase. This is definetly a value, and I hope that this translates to new codexes for warhammer 40k moving to hardcover as well. I am sad that I missed my Imperial Guard and Dark Eldar in hardcover.
If Games Workshop was going to move to all hardcovers for 40k, would you re-buy your codex? Would you like to see 40k codexes go hardcover?
