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...

Nope, no limit. Scalpers are taking full advantage.

Sorry if this brakes the rules but those EBAY people deserve a massive slap. I'd happily do it.

I am gutted.

since I was 12 years old I have been reading these books. For the following decade and a half of my life I read them avidly. Warhammer 40k and the Horus Heresy have got me through a lot. These books were my go-to reads constantly during medical school....

I was so excited to purchase the limited edition of Solar War, I absolutely love John French's books...

sadly I was working as a doctor through the terrorist attacks in Christchurch NZ and have only had about 4 hours sleep in the last few days, despite setting alarms and all the rest of it, I totally missed this book release for obvious reason....

on top of all the :cuss of the last few days it really stings that people would scalp these books that we all know and love so much so that the rest of us couldn't purchase them. If you are reading this and that was you, think about selling that book on to a member of the community at a decent and fair price.

2,500 for a limited run (that the author has to sign) is a fair number to be honest. I'd rather they didn't damage John French's hands too much.

 

I got my copy, though, so I'm happy.

People make money with everything they can. Buying something low and selling high is nothing unusual. I set the blame here not on people who "play the market" but rather on GW who don't limit purchases somehow since those people literally have a bunch of money they sit on ready to throw at something like this and no way most regular customers could keep up with that. That being said, even without those people there would be many not getting their hands on those LEs and end up being unhappy. That's just how things are with limited stuff.

I have no problem with the limited stock. I have a huge, huge problem with their terrible website. I woke up a few hours early on a Saturday to order. The website crapped out. I could add the book to a cart on the GW website for a few minutes, but could not get it delivered...as I’m a U.S. resident. The BL library continued to be non-responsive. 50 minutes later, and BL site updates. The book is featured! I add it to my cart. Wait a minute for loading. Press checkout. Wait a minute for loading. Confirm information. Wait a minute. Process payment. Two minutes. Then I am returned to a screen that says “Cart is empty.” No transaction. Then a Page 404 on the book.

I don’t mind waking up early. I don’t mind the limited run. I don’t mind the price. I mind a barely functioning website that allows me to spend 6 minutes ordering before saying, in effect, “PSYCHE!”

Enough whining. I’m not paying eBay prices for this. I bought Horus Rising when it was brand new. Hell, I bought Space Wolf when *IT* was new, near two decades ago. I’m quite soured on this experience.

Now that the Heresy is over and we are on the Siege I have to say that the Dark Angels have been pretty badly served. 

 

Before the series began theirs was the biggest and most well known story set in the Heresy beyond the actual heresy itself. There's a reason that the first novel to branch off from the main story line was about them. The betrayal by the Fallen got set up, then just dropped. Instead we got some novels that cover things no-one asked for or wanted (Damnation of Pythos anyone?). 

 

This is one of the things I'd most like to see covered by the new series, but I dont see it happening. Things I'd like to see happen that might include: the Emperor giving the order that Landraiders be reserved for Astartes only, Dorn saying "Give me a hundred Space Marines. Or failing that give me a thousand other troops" and something about the Gauntlets of Ultramar being obtained by Gulliman.

 

Edit: I was at a book reading around 2010 where Graham McNeill said the Iron Hands and Salamanders were unlikely to get a book each as their chapters were mostly done and post Istvaan their stories were basically done. Look how that turned out.

For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.

Q:  Is there room for hope in the grim dark future of Warhammer 40,000?
A:  I do hope not because then it won't be the 40k universe anymore.

Tomorrow, thirteen years of the Horus Heresy series will meet their culmination in The Solar War – the first in an 8-volume megaseries that’ll bring the story to its epic climax. We’re letting you know about this one early, as it’s expected to sell out incredibly fast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

               
 

 

See Thirteen years...Great series but honestly...iv'e waited this long, i can wait a year or two more to get the cheap paperback laugh.png 

as for the scalpers...if you don't buy it they can't profit from it... GW should be doing one per customer though sad.png

Scalpers are selling it on Ebay for a 200-260% mark up, not including shipping. This depresses me.

Why?  Are you trying to live off the misfortunes of others?  Because that's idea behind of all this moaning about the Ebay sellers.  And I am writing this because for the mods calling people who supplement their income by selling on the Ebay so they can afford to buy things names is rather O.K.  I thought we are living in capitalism but apparently the snowflakes don't think so.
