Primarchs scene with the biblical hints was hilarious ;)

 

'The Sigilite - you kind of get ghostly echos of places some characters walked 10 thousand years before Crawl gets on the scene. ' - not only that, you could see how 'new generation' see events of the long past and how it all coexist with their 'naive' beliefs ;)

That limited edition for the The Emperor's Legion though. This might be the first overpriced hardback I actually get. I know Wraight can deliver and it's styled like something the folio society might produce. And look, it comes with a black shroud-slipcase, like the background about the custodians' livery change between 30k and 40k. Dang.

Say what, where's the Custodian livery change on the BL site pictures?

It's not actually showing the livery change - though the guys on normal edition cover wear some black - but I was looking at this. A plain black slipcase over an rich and decorated golden-brown leather book seems to me to be a deliberate call out to the custodes shrouding themselves in black after the heresy. Particularly as BL's other slipcases tend to be elaborate and illustrated.

Exactly, reminded me of the lovely Folio Society stuff as well.

Sorry dude, all the LEs come in a shroud.  Mostly black from recollection.

It's a rework of a good old Blanche image for the golden throne and custodes. And it's pleases me greatly. I will definitely be getting this one. Black shroud-slipcase will be top notch for my new shelf.yes.gif

 

Plus I have a colossal belief in Wraight (he hasn't proved me wrong yet) - so that book is a must buy!

Ah, I was looking at the primarch LEs and jain zar, warlord and such. They don't seem to have it but I see it on the Dark Imperium LE. Oh well, chalk it up to a fine if coincidental syncing with the background. A black shroud on a golden book looks cooler on than a black shroud on a black book.smile.png

I think warmaster LE (that hinted to be red bookmark and sidemark on golden coverage for BLW release) would be #2 LE in the chart of beautiful LEs.

Currently powering through it, it is good. These aren't spoilers, I hope, seemingly throwaway bits of world building but the references to quotes from the Lectitio Gouldiensis and Apocrypha Chymes, Easter Eggs for Laurie Goulding and Nick Kyme? (Chapter 9, page 111 of the LE version)

Finished this recently. A fellow frater called it the best BL novel this year. Not sure that is correct - there have been some great books so far - but damn it's going to be a close run thing if it isn't.
