 I recently joined a RT pbp campaign as an astropath. Now, I've had the core rulebook for awhile but never really played. I've played DH and BC mostly, but getting into this and making an Astropath the look and feel REALLY got me hooked and I figured I need at least 1 or 2 supplements for this. Just like when I got inquisitors handbook and DH became that much better! 

So what should I get? Both as a player and DM, either for use in RT or sourcebooks for other 40k games. Tips are welcomed!

As an Astropath, the book you'd want the most - The Navis Primer - sadly isn't out yet. It's the one after the next one (Soul Reaver), but it is a whole book dealing with Navigators and Astropaths, so if you're playing a longer-term campaign it might be worth picking up once it's out (whenever that turns out to be).

But from a 'players' perspective, Into the Storm is probably your first port of call, followed by Battlefleet Koronus. From a GM perspective I'd get both of those as well as Edge of the Abyss and The Koronus Bestiary. All the rest would be 'optional' (even if they are quite good!).

 Alright! Ended up with both Into the Storm, and since the dollar is so weak I picked up battlefleet koronus as well :) Thanks for the help!
