New Dwarves, Knight Heads, Contest From Forge World

We’ve got a little bit of everything from Forge World today. For those that are Lord of the Rings fans, there’s a new Hill Dwarf Unit and Command. Those that love their Imperial Knights have some new heads to choose from, as well as some waterslide transfers. Finally, if you’re wanting a reprinting of the original Rogue Trader rules, they have a contest going where you could win one.

    Can they throw a 3 hole punch or instructions on rebinding when the book falls apart?

    • Andrew Franke

      Doubtful, My original never fell apart. I got one of the VERY first editions in the United States(The Baltimore Games Workshop Manager was a neighbor) though and those seemed to be stitched. Mine was at least.
      My Copy of the first Expansion Chapter Approved didn’t even make it a full day.

        My track record with their early books has been mixed. I’d say 1:6 good to looseleaf ratio. There’s nothing like explaining to your parents why an expensive book is falling to pieces a short time after buying it to give your hobby choice a black eye.

    I’d love to know why they decided to only have it (the RT reprint) available at Warhammer World. It seems like that thing would sell out in a matter of minutes if they made it available in gaming stores and online, based on the insane prices that the original goes for even in completely wrecked condition.

    • Andrew Franke

      Well once people got over the novelty of it the sales would dry up. RT was not a great game without amendment. However with a few house rules(Appeared in WD) in my mind still the best of all the versions.

    Hmmph, I’ve thrown two of those away in the last year and a half.
