I couldn’t even get the site to load...

Weird they didn’t make more, since they clearly knew it would sell like crazy.

The 40k fluff explained to an outsider:

Some space elves got really into drugs and sex and a big scary monster got born that ate them.
A space wizard got beaten up by a guy who said he was his friend but wasn't and now he's on a life support machine and people worship him because he was super awesome.
Now there are giant men with rocket launcher machine guns and 4 hearts and are really super awesome who beat up everything.
Also there's a bunch of aliens but they don't really do anything and aren't as cool as the rocket machine gun super men, so who cares?

Can't get into Blacklibrary. com, but sold on on GW main site. Irritating.

I've just realised I'll struggle to get the next ones in the limited editions as I'm typically working Saturdays...

Might have to cancel my order.

I missed out after hitting pay, which was a kick in the teeth!

But is anyone else annoyed by the two month wait to get the standard edition? Missing out in the LE Incan accept if I could get the book next month
Hfran, keep it and I'll happily take it off your hands! ;)

Tholath - were you actually able to access it via Black Library? Every time the page loads for me there isn't even a link.

At least it's less than the 6 month wait for spear of the emperor!

But it would be nice if they were released closed together

Sold out online while I was halfway through paying.
Now to see how the eBay scalpers price it.


I was tempted to pick up multiple copies instead of one to make a quick buck but I felt the corruption seeping into my soul even as I considered it.

Good luck to those still seeking it.

No, GW site. I got an email from BL 20 minutes after it was sold out. Which hurt

Ok, we all need to email GW and tell them to limit these to 1 per order.
Just checked eBay and some muppet is already selling a couple of copies at £200 each.

That really hacks me off, there is a big difference in affordability between an already expensive £50 and the eBay mark up, it just prices a lot of people out.

Ninja'd by Hfran, i had to delete a few words not allowed before hitting post :)

Australian GW site is now taking pre-orders, mine is in. biggrin.png

 

RP was $100 AUD.

 

Seven more to go. ermm.gif

 

Wow they are going for maximum money on something with a foregone conclusion. Is there anybody out there who is on the edge of their seats wondering how it ends? Unless they do a Star Trek Discovery...Rocks fall most people die.

 

The logic (nostalgia) for me?

 

It's been nearly 30 years since I saw this piece of artwork as a boy:

 

Horus-vs-the-Emperor-1990-1200x800.jpg

 

I'd previously been pulled in by the Rogue Trader rulebook, but it was that image that confirmed my enduring love of the 40K universe - The Emperor vs Horus, fighting for the rulership and future of mankind during the battle for Terra.

 

Until now it has only been described by reference and by background text, never through the eyes of the actors themselves.

 

I've been waiting 30 years.

 

That's a bit special; that's why I'm shelling out for the fancy books.

 

-Ran

 

Yeah, same here. I still remember taking the tour at WHW and the display I lingered the most at was the old diorama of that pic...

It looks like these are being release in waves, its showing as back in stock on GW and BL websites

I'm happy about that - i already secured a copy this morning but it gives more people a chance to get it after the BL email went out

Good luck snaffling for those who genuinely want one.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

I got all the way through payment on the BL site and now there's no page for it. Still comes up under the Horus Heresy tab though.

They better not change the sacrifice of Sanguinius so they can bring him back in current timeline 40k. 


Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

If there's a lesson to be learned from the past few hours - If you miss out, keep checking back, both GW sites and Black Library.
