Games Workshop is pushing the limits with new digital products for release today. Three new book that follow the same series as was just started previously.


The Games Workshop newsletter today is the source, and it since GW has introduced Android and Kindle, these new digital products are appearing at a record pace. Obviously this has been a long time coming, and has been being worked on for quite awhile.

I am hoping that the rulebook and more on the various platform are coming quickly.

Index Astartes: Chaplins $4.99
Warlords of the Dark Millennium: Asmodai $4.99
Munitorium: Banshee Masks $1.99

  2. Kindle could be interesting, but as long as digital books will be as expensive as the paper ones, I'll still prefer paper...

  3. Finally, the are for kindle and Android.
    But, I think that is a good way to waste money in a recycle old books and some old pictures, and a background description that could be in Lexicanum.

  5. Haha GW you so funny!

    But wait, they ARE serious?!
    Add that to the list of recycled and redundant material that I'll never buy.

    It's a real shame, there is an opportunity for GW to really shine, but they seem intent on alienating their community and butchering anything and everything online. Facebook? Forums? Recycled digital content hamstrung with an insane price tag.

    1. They're only alienating the immature whingy part of the community and that's a win as far as I'm concerned. GW staff have better things to do than moderate swarms of over-opinionated kids who think that they're entitled to cheap and free stuff amidst an economic downturn.

      Material that you'll never buy is no loss to you, but a win for someone who is interested in that material. It's no bad thing.

      GW is doing alright in my books at the moment, their monthly releases are of a quality that surpasses the old books, the new models are better and their release cycle has been stepped up. I don't know any other company that releases multi-format physical products on a monthly basis to a world-wide consumer-base while bettering their old products. GW are good at what they do (mostly!), they just do it without really pandering to anyone else.

    2. Agreed mauler. I see complaints about gw too often and it seems no one focuses on their good stuff nearly as much, despite it being more common than the bad

    3. @ Mauler: I think that you are wrong at least in that sentence: Material that you'll never buy is no loss to you. I can't agree, because bad material, or expensive material, is a lost chance to make a good work, and of course a terrible waste of time, waste of efforts and that waste of effort makes other exciting and cool things get delayed forever. It is simply boring: the hobby is getting boring, because now we don't see any ilusion in the writers and designers to give us a good job, a great final product, now we only see a giant monster feeding with our money, without any other consideration other tan feeding more, giving us in exchange material that is getting worse and more expensive every month. Digital apps are not exactly flawless, their rules updated different from faq's, our codex are filled with errata (in the spanish versión of codex Tau the point cost of the mont'ka is missing!) and instead of offering constant updates OR even giving you the choice to download for free in exchange... they make you pay again and again for material you already owned, with minor changes that in fact, were flaws. This is not a good policy, this kind of behaviour is not going to make GW shine like the manufacturers they were. Sure they will cow us, but sooner or later this kinda disconnection with the followers will make them pay the Price. Someone in the "staff" thought that selling PDF's at high Price was a good idea for the income... no one there thought about the problems could have the players with different versions or the players outside US and UK without proper translations and different versions. Someone in the economic división thought that, taking into account the raw weight of plastic, it would be good for the company to produce BIG models... do you really think that there is someone in GW, a real player or fan that works for them?, someone that simply could say... "wait, BIG monsters doesn't look good for eldar fluff since we already got their titans and are much more powerful tan this!"... or "giving the Tau no other Troops in next codex would be disapointing"... NO, there is no such "advisor". They simply wanted to sell more "old boxes" with higher prices and sell overpriced big models with the excuse of more plastic inside the box. In my humble opinion, we only can stand A LOT of economic decisions before we realize that the people who makes decisions are not fans... instead they are money makers who don't care about anyone of us (unlike it used to be)They are becoming more like Apple or Electronic Arts. I hate to see this: I prefered the Little group of dreamers that made me dream of distant galaxies.

  6. I bought the Codex Astartes- pretty nice product and a great throne reading.

    It's weird because in the Codex Astartes it states that Chaos purposely allowed the Emperor conquer most of the galaxy before turning half his legion against him. It was planned and a trap- the Emperor over extended himself.

    However, the Horus Heresy books state that the Emperor was kicking but and taking names. His secular and age of reason was drying up the power of the Chaos Gods- driving them into oblivion. The plan against Horus was desperate and a last ditch effort to turn the tables on the Emperor.

    How old is the Codex Astartes book? Will its cannon conflict with ground that has been established with the Horus Heresy books?

  7. Codex Astartes is pretty old. Pre-heresy fluff I think.

    1. Clarification, I meant pre- modern fluff for the heresy, not fluff about pre-heresy

  8. The stuff they are putting out on kindle/android, they should be free, either with a code inside white dwarf this would help attract people to buy other digital stuff, but it's Not worth paying for
