Games Workshop has started taking orders for their new eCodex: Legion of the Damned. Reserve your copy now.


From the announcement:

Codex: Legion of the Damned allows you to add Legion of the Damned squads into your Warhammer 40,000 army, or field them as a detachment in their own right. It includes extensive background on the mysterious Legion of the Damned, detailing the times they have appeared to fight alongside the armies of the God-Emperor. Also inside you will find rules for Legion of the Damned units, as well as three new missions, an artefact and Warlord Traits and, all unique to these legendary warriors.

This interactive edition features quick-links to special rules for ease of reference during your games.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Why do I need to reserve my copy today? It’s an eCodex- they have an unlimited number of them! 😉

    I like LotD, but not enough to jump blindly on this. I think I’ll wait until I read about what’s in it- new units, new rules, or what? If it’s just the exact same unit from CSM with an extra rule to allow them to be used as a detachment… nah, no thanks.

    Could be awesome if GW opens up the army. There are enough models to fill it out, and you can always convert and paint other models.

      Well, duh! They might run out of e-ink when preparing the digital copies for the e-readers.

  • Major_Gilbear

    To me, this sounds like the sort of content that should be in White Dwarf – you content that would make the mag worth buying even occasionally.

      I remember back in ’99 when Legion of the Damned got to be it’s own force. This was just a couple of months before 3rd edition was released.
      Initially, they did some run up articles on the LotD and were offering several mail-order only kits for what was bound to be an exciting list in the next WD.
      The following WD came out and the army list had almost none of the units that they were selling in the mag the month before. Anyone who bought those units needlessly spent money on models they couldn’t use.
      Then the next month 3rd edition came out and completely nullified the list from the previous month.
      That was when I began to become unhappy with the way GW does business.

      How many forces haven’t had codex updates for the last couple of editions, but they are releasing yet another SM force? I feel bad for those people.

      • KelRiever

        Those forces have been discontinuet. GW just won’t tell anyone.

        Because when they do, people actually get mad at them. So, you know, lying by omission is totally the answer!

        That account of 1999 sounds like it would make an awesome narration intro to a gamer version of The Wonder Years.

        It was that summer I learned….

        • KelRiever

          Wait, are you saying that GW of 15 years later is more transparent than that of 1999? Just because it is 15 years later? On the other hand (and due to not being able to edit), see my shock of something else below…

  • KelRiever

    I don’t know what is worse…that you mentioned The Wonder Years or that I know what you are talking about.

    • Soulfinger

      “And so Winnie [GW] and I had our one slow dance after all. But things wouldn’t be the same between us. We were getting older. All we could do was close our eyes and wish that the slow song would never end.”

      • tuco

        I’m actually picturing GW as a an amalgam of Kevin’s brother Wayne and his best friend Paul. But by all means, go ahead and slow dance with him/it.

        • Soulfinger

          So more like this then, with Games Workshop playing the role of Wayne:

          KEVIN: You want to know why Angela wouldn’t come over?!
          WAYNE: Shut up.
          KEVIN: Because she doesn’t like you, Wayne!
          WAYNE: Shut up!
          KEVIN: She doesn’t – nobody does!
          WAYNE: Shut up!
          KEVIN: No! You may be bigger than me, and stronger than me. But you know what, Wayne? I have friends! Nobody likes you, Wayne! You’re just mean, to everybody, all the time, because…nobody likes you! You’re pathetic!
