40K:8th Limited Edition Unveiled

There is a gorgeous new Limited Edition of 40k’s 8th Edition is coming for all the uber-collectors out there. Take a look.

Two Limited Editions products are available:

Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition Limited Edition

Limited run of 2000

Dark Imperium Novel Limited Edition

Limited run of 1000, signed by the author (Guy Haley)

Includes exclusive short story, ‘In the Grim Darkness’.

“368-page hardback book with a soft-touch cover and leather-wrapped spine, with both gold foiling and artwork from the new game. The pages are gilt-edged, and the book includes two marker ribbons in black and gold – so it looks and feels like an artefact from the 41st Millennium.

Plot sees Roboute Guilliman leading his Indomitus Crusade across the galaxy, bringing him back to Ultramar, where the pustulent Death Guard are laying siege to the Five Hundred Worlds. “

 

~Any guesses on the price?

    You should’ve had this included in the ‘are you a wargaming addict’ BOLS story… I think those that buy this and are not independently wealthy get an automatic ‘Yes’ to that question… lol

    • Xodis

      Even those that are independently wealthy fall into that category IMO lol.

  • Evil Otto

    Dammit, there goes my wallet. I’m an absolute sucker for artsy, gold-leaf limited edition books and deluxe rule books.

    • wibbling

      I’ve worked in a printers. The ‘gold leaf’ is a bit of tape melted on to the paper. It’s about £5 for 100m.

      While I appreciate the luxury, is it really worth nigh on £350 or three of the boxed sets?

      • Evil Otto

        For me, yeah, because I’m kinda stupid at times. 😉

  • Drpx

    It’s that schnozz on the marine helmet that bugs me more than anything else in 8th.

  • Sleeplessknight

    It’s $420 USD/ $500 CDN

    Um, no thanks.

    • Crevab

      Crap on a cracker!

    • MMO Builder

      Totally ridiculous. I hate it when companies jump on the ‘collectible’ market and increase the price because a few people might pay that much on the secondary market. These should be perk of the lucky fans who manage to snap them up, not a profit center.

    • combatmedic

      Source?

      • Sleeplessknight

        info from my FLG

      • On the NZ GW site it’s over $800 right now and so about 1/2 that in USD. So over $400. Would love to have it but that is WAY out of my price range

    • SilentPony

      Hey, come on, 8th is literally the best thing ever, every promise has been kept, and damned if GW didn’t go above and beyond to do LITERALLY everything for the fans and the fans alone.
      8th is the best thing that has ever happened since oxygen was invented and anyone who doesn’t but 10 Limited Editions is a hater and should just sell all their belongings and move to Alaska and start walking and never stop.

      • Spacefrisian

        So where is Vect some fans are wondering.

    • MechBattler

      Well, it is the “final edition” if the rumors are to be believed (I’ll believe it when they don’t drop “9th” in two years). They’re pricing it to pump the players for roughly two limited editions worth of money.

    • Charles Laine

      I was actually going to get this, until I saw the price just now. $420 USD is almost $100 more than I was expecting it to cost, even with GW’s traditional pricing for these sorts of things.

  • CPT AWESOME

    Awesome.

  • William Jameson

    Oh, so THIS is where the miniature version of the core book went. It is an even worse place for it than the starter box. GW please just make this available separately for once 🙁

    • Mr.Gold

      why GW, why???

  • mhtsaropinigitakis

    so much luxury and stuff and such a huge price for an item that will be absolute next year lol…that why i stopped buying any books…its only minis for me

    • ZeeLobby

      Definitely.

  • David Leimbach

    First you must ask yourself, “do you have too much money? Well do ya punk?”

  • ZeeLobby

    I’ll be passing on the limited edition rulebook this time. Was kind of salty when 7th came so soon after 6th, and now with the price. No way.

    • Charles Laine

      same

  • MechBattler

    And yea doth they spake – ye shall giveth of thyself, thou firstborn son shall be sacrificed to payeth for 8th Edition.

  • Deacon Ix

    I have been a fan of limited editions but at £250 I think not this time

  • Chet Atkinson

    It doesn’t even have the minis with it. £250 HAHAHA!

  • Derpius Prime

    but you stilll have to buy the indexes separately even if you do get the limited edition
