“These twenty digital tomes contain the full army list (or datasheets) from each Codex, along with all the weapons, wargear and special rules you need. Each comes complete with Quick Links to make finding the rules you need in the heat of battle easy. There’s never been a more portable or convenient way to hold all your rules together in one place.”
For those at home keeping track, the “full edition” digital codex books were $49.99, but GW wanted to get out a FOURTH version of each codex for those folks who only care about the rules.

“The Gamer’s Edition of Codex: Astra Militarum contains all the rules information to allow you to use your collection of Imperial Guard in games of Warhammer 40,000. It includes:

A complete army list covering every model in the Astra Militarum range
Rules for all the weapons and wargear used by the soldiers of the Imperial Guard
Warlord Traits, Heirlooms of Conquest and special rules for issuing orders to your forces


This Gamer Edition includes Quick Links and pop-ups to ensure that you’ll always have the rules you need to hand – no more flipping through books looking for the stats for your weapons or what a special rule does!”

So as of now each codex is availalbe in these formats:
  • Physical Hardcover
  • Digital ebook
  • Digital iTunes Enhanced Edition (fluff & rules)
  • Digital iTunes Gamer Edition (rules only)
So who’s thinking it’s only a matter of time until the “Fluffy Bunny” editions come out that only contain the background and artwork?
~What do you think of the value of these and which editions would you most want to pick up?
