  1. Not gonna lie... tempted by the Collector's Edition for this one.

    But I'll probably chicken out of dropping the cash and get the regular one.

  2. The collectors edition does sound awesome but I think it'll be out of my price range :(

  9. I was visiting a newsagent and it looks like they had gone ahead and put out this months White Dwarf early. The collectors edition is certainly very tempting though quite out of my price range.

  10. My local newsagent also had a stack of White Dwarfs - the two special editions are very tempting, but £150 ($250) is a lot. I really only went in to see if they had any of the Eldar White Dwarf left from last month!

  11. "Sons of the Primarch: Space Marine and Chaos Space Marines calling upon the power of their Primarchs"

    Hm, perhaps a roundabout way of letting us include FW primarchs in our Apocalypse games?

    1. I was wondering this myself. As much as I like the large format, it got inconvenient very quickly.

  14. Any info yet about Grey Knight stuff on the Apocalypse book?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hope it's the same page size as 6th Ed rulebook, that oversized apoc book was awkward as hell to carry around in a book stack.

  16. I won't drop the $$ on the Apoc book. Most everyone around here only plays a 1500 pt army. My brother and I play 4000+ armies but few people can afford that size army these days. $75.00 for a book? That's a lot of miniatures. They should release an Apoc boxed set with miniatures at those kinds of prices.

    1. Where is $75.00 a lot of GW miniatures these days?
