|Finally, a digital version of the core rules!|
As much as I like Games Workshop’s printed books, my shelves are filling up with them. But with the constant stream of FAQs, I am now less likely to rush out and buy a new release. One such release, now a few weeks old, was the mini hardcover Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. At first one might question its purpose, in that you can get a mini rulebook in the Dark Vengeance box, but the significance of the release is not in it being hardcover, but that it is actually updated to reflect the current FAQ status of the rules. As far as I know, this is a first for GW. And although the little tome is likely very nice, I see little reason to get it. What necessitated printing it in the first place is the very reason it is hard to justify purchasing it; the next FAQ is likely just around the corner. But I am not writing this to complain about GW’s inability to get their rules right the first time; I wanted to say a few words about the little talked about sister release of the revised rulebook: The Digital Edition of the Warhammer 40,000 Rules.
