  1. Not sure about you guys, but I'm seriously getting tired of the mass amounts of limited editions and exclusive or direct only items.
    Surely if GW puts the effort into something they'd want to sell it to make money; not shoot themselves in the foot and only sell a few.

    I'm sure it'll be a good read, but my wallet is about as health as an alcoholic's liver right now.

    1. They seem to think that they can fabricate a quality product simply by saying it's "limited edition". I'm over it too, but they're going to keep doing it because they have no idea what people actually want.

    2. You seem to think they care beyond reaching out for the easy fast buck/quid/groat.

    3. As i understand it the odea is to sell it as ltd ed with hogh prices first and then to release it again in two years as a regular novel. That way they first get the high margin income from the dedicated collectors and thwn later still earn the complete revenue from all the regular customers. For a publisher i yhink its genius.

  2. The Games Workshop Business Plan
    Step 1: Create product
    Step 2: Tout awesomeness of said product
    Step 3: Create artificially short supply to promote illusion of increased awesomeness
    Step 4: Charge extortionately high price justified by claims of products awesomeness
    Step 5: Wait for fat sacks of cash and heaping piles of adoration from our loving customer base

  3. A Ravenguard army is nice but I'd rather see rules for the chapter. Can we at least get a WD veteran scout unit?

    1. A Ravenguard army would be great but I meant to say novel.

  4. I agree, those limited editions for a BOOK are retarded. I have no problem with those special editions that offer something like a changed hardcover or an extra miniature, IF you can get the product in a normal version.

    I bought every HH novel on release, but since they have switched to hardcover releases first (25€) I just wait till they get released as paperback. A new 1200 page book from Stephen King might be worth 20€+ for me, but not a 300-400 page "random" Sci-Fi novel.

    1. I wanted to get all the series too, but between limited releases I somehow miss and event only books I haven't bothered in a long time...

      It'd be nice if there was a point to limited edition books. How great would it be if limited edition books came with a one-off sculpt of a central character? That's how you sell them, not by creating pressure to buy a product people may or may not want. The easy answer in that dilemma is always to keep your money.

  5. Regardless of the business plan - it's nice that raven guard are getting love :) now how about fixing them in the marine codex so shrike is more viable (fielding him with th/ss terminators is about as unfluffy as it gets and he's not great for much else with no assaulting from infiltrate and the fact that having fleet is redundant with the jump pack)

  6. I think that the basic premise of Horus Heresy is great. As in, novels that are soon available in paperback too.

    Then, they started putting out these short stories, novellas, and audio dramas, and while no doubt nice for those who are interested in only their own faction instead of wanting to catch'em all, at least the novellas are horribly overpriced, and I'm more than a little bit disappointed that the audio dramas (which I'm not going to buy anyway) outright retcon major events from the novels.

  7. The Limited Edition of Unkindness of Ravens was excellent and definitely one of those books i will keep and re-read - a real quality production... but i think they should give people the choice just like they do for the codexes. You can buy a top notch Limited Edition or pretty much the same time you can buy another standard one - why not. To be honest they should do the same with soft-backs and hard-backs - give people the choice.
