Warhammer 40,000 (Interactive Edition) Book Summary


In the nightmare future of the 41st Millennium, Mankind teeters upon the brink of extinction. The galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man, beset on all sides by ravening aliens, foul traitors and Warp-spawned Daemons, looks once more to its greatest heroes to stave off the encroaching darkness. There is no time for peace. No respite. No forgiveness. There is only war.
 
Warhammer 40,000 is your essential guide to fielding majestic armies of Citadel miniatures across the war-ravaged battlefields of the far future. It comprises three core volumes:

The Rules – a comprehensive set of rules allowing you to recreate the vicious conflicts of the 41st Millennium on the tabletop. Using your collection of Citadel miniatures, you can command the heroes and villains of Warhammer 40,000 in a galaxy where there is only war.
 
Dark Millennium – a glimpse into the grim darkness of the far future. It details the crumbling Imperium of Man and the many enemies, within and without, who are constantly plotting its downfall.
 
A Galaxy of War – an introduction to Warhammer 40,000. It contains photographs of beautifully painted Citadel miniatures and provides inspiration for your own collection.

Warhammer 40,000 (Interactive Edition) - Games Workshop Reviews

  • 5 stars for content, 3 stars for price

    Content - Gaming data is relatively up to date. The gaming breakouts look to be mostly fixed and correct. And of course the book is searchable and snappy enough to on my iPad Air (1st gen). Not as well linked as the newest books but still very helpful during a game. Basically better than the print version all around. Price - $10 off of the book MSRP for something that you are stuck with forever is pretty lame. And taking most online discounts into consideration you are actually paying about. $5-10 more than the "real price" of the print book. Again, for something with zero resale value. Vote with your wallets as you see fit. I doubt I am going to buy the codices like this, but for the main rules (one book) it is a little easier to swallow. There is the gamer version which is $30 less, but again I figured for one book I'll buy this one.
  • You must be kidding me.

    When I heard that there were digital copies available I got excited at the prospect of having something that would be portable and readily available wherever I was at to reference. But after seeing what you are charging there is no way in hell I'm giving you my money. I understand that we pay for convenience, but this is absolutely ridiculous. I'd rather pay that much for the physical copy just for the prospect of being able to smack you with it so I could knock some sense into you. Please think of the customers and not the profit.
  • just bought old version, now they wont update me.

    As a person who retails Games Workshop products, this is yet another staple of proof that we do not care about our customers, do not read the reviews and try to rectify ourselves, only care about money and people with it, and worst off, have made a mockery of small business people like me who have faithfully played this game for years.
  • Thanks for the money, sucker!

    If you shelled out 70 bucks for 10 bucks worth of rules, 10 bucks worth of hobby "advice", and 50 bucks of advertisements, you deserved to be fleeced. Anyway, if you don't like these rules, in 6 months you can spend 90 to get the next edition.
  • Rules are good, content is lacking

    By WafflesMan

    The 7th edition rules are an improvement over 6th. But the interactive edition is lazily made and lacking. The most glaring issue is that all three books are released as a single document. This means that every time I open this, my ipad is loading 400 pages of fluff and photos when all I want are the rules. Hopefully my Astra Militarum ibooks edition links will soon be updated with the new rules and psychic powers (it would be crazy for that book to be outdated only one month after release). The first of the three books included is complete garbage. The advertisements described it as a hobby book with modeling, painting, and hobby content. It is literally nothing but pictures and advertisements for their new Space Marine release. There aren’t any painting guides, no battle reports, no modeling, no conversions, it is just pure paint-splatters of models for 200 pages. The fluff, as far as I see, is pretty good. I enjoy reading it, and it’s convenient to have it in one place. I bought the barebones 6th edition rulebook, so the fluff is worthwhile for me. The rules, overall the changes are good. The new psychic system, revamped psychic powers, tactical objectives, everything scoring, new missions, are all good changes. However, the book is difficult to use. Most of the rules have not had their language edited at all, so disputed passages have not been clarified, and the new rules are very poorly explained. Some design choices just make it harder to use, for instance, the psychic powers show on the page with their fluffy descriptions “lethal bolts of bio-lightening leap from the psyker’s fingertips…” but not their in-game profile. So you have to find the page and click each psychic power’s link to read their effect (this is in the “reference” section). And clicking on the items reveals a poorly formatted profile where a weapon’s special rules might wrap around back to the left side or otherwise show up scattered on the page. The same issue shows up for many of the book’s roll tables, making it more difficult to quickly reference and issue. Confusingly, when some rules are removed from the previous edition, the text is simply left out, rather than clarifying the change. Ideally, I would like to see the three component books split into their separate pieces so that the rulebook isn’t slowed down or prone to crash because my device has to load the other two books. It would also be preferable if the books were available individually for purchase (with some bundled price) for the benefit of veteran players. I am waiting for the updates to be applied to my codex, as promised by the interactive edition upon purchase.
  • Good book but has errors

    I love the digital version but once again it has not been proofread for errors. Example look at the stomp table in the appendix. Is it 3-5 or 4-6. Good thing the digital version can get updated with an faq
  • Should have been 3 files

    By Cranky at Cuppertino

    I get that GW couldn't sell it as three separate books because only the rules would have sold, but lumping them together into one giant file makes the document almost worthless as a gaming aid. The file is massively slow to respond, and any attempt to search for a word in the rules section turns up bunches of word uses in the fluff section that no one cares about when trying to sort out GW's terrible technical writing. I've been playing since Rogue Trader. I know the setting as well as the current crop of writers. I can go to the GW web store if I want to look at saturated pictures of cartoonish lay painted miniatures. What I wanted from this book was an easy to use reference to the rules for 7th edition. This product fails spectacularly at that.
  • What a rip off

    I am just looking at the demo but it looks more like an advertisement than a rulebook.
  • Finally something decent

    Have this on my iPad mini with current software and am for once very pleased with a recent gw release. Very easy to navigate and highlight, yes for the most part just a rehashing of old rules, and miss the total index of everybody's weapons ( nice to know what your opponents could hit you with stat wise without their codex...). No it is not perfect, but if you have an iPad, this beats lugging around books...now if they would give the dark elder and orcs some love that would be nice.
  • Wasn't ready for release

    My review is just of the interactive editions features. Nearly ever one is broken, all pictures are missing. This book was not ready to be released.
