8th ed. GW newsletter

Post  squalie on Wed May 26, 2010 11:59 am

New Warhammer: almost here!

Since we announced the new edition of Warhammer back in April, the excitement has been slowly building. Across the land hobbyists have begun gathering their forces in preparation of the mighty battles that lie ahead; in hushed whispers they've talked about what might lie within the 528-pages of the new Warhammer rulebook. Well prepare to ramp your excitement up a notch - Warhammer will be available to advance order from the 15th of June. Inspired by the clockwork creations of the engineers of Altdorf, we've today added a swish countdown clock to games-workshop.com, so you'll know exactly how many minutes and seconds to go before you can order your copy.

To thank you for subscribing to our newsletter (these images won't be shown anywhere else!) we thought we'd give you a sneak peek inside the new book. And don't forget that June's issue of White Dwarf is out this weekend and contains more exclusive information and pictures from the new Warhammer rulebook.

Enjoy.

Damn you GW!. Those pictures are just big enough that I should be able to read them but attempting it would wreck my eyes! Looks like the whole book is going to be in color, thats pretty sweet. Hopefully it isn't too expensive, although I've bought textbooks that were much less interesting for over $200 so I'd probably still buy this if it was that much. I wouldn't be happy about it though.

They sent the pictures so that you couldn't see hi-res versions! Sneaky gits.

The rumour is 60 euro for the book, or around $80 CDN. Five hundred and twenty eight pages in full colour.

Plus don't ogres get extra strength on their bull charge for each complete rank? It wasn't something that came up too often when they had to rank 5 wide but now with ranks being only 3 wide it suddenly makes it much more feasable.

You're assuming there'll still be a rank bonus...

All bets are off. Wink
