Book Binding

Not yet, but it is creaking something fierce whenever I open the book.

I have an upcoming play session where the book will be used a lot so I'll let you know if anything changes.

I've not had any problems with other FFG books, though my EotE is a tiny bit creaky.

 

My copy of DH2 is worse. It might hold, but where the page is glued to the inside of the cover (the picture of the cityscape) it is not glued up to the seam and so isn't held in place.

My book does seem to be starting to angle to one side of the spine already.  Not a big deal (yet), as I'm halfway through reading it.

FFG have a pretty good track record with replacing missing/damaged pieces of their board games if the fault is on their end. Might be worth dropping them an email and seeing if they can replace your book with a more solid one.

I ordered mine online, not sure i can be bothered posting it back to the retailer. If it falls to pieces i might get a new one. I don't live in the US, FFG aren't just going to ship out a replacement anyway.

My copy seems to have the same problem. From page 225 and forward the glue has come of.
I'll throw an email to FFG about it though I'm in the same position as signoftheserpent, living outside the US.

I love that in addition to cutting corners by reprinting their last game they cut more corners by printing it cheaply.

 

I'd love to see some photos of your crumbling brand new books, everyone.

Yep, mine too. The binding in this one is weak indeed. The ones before have been better.

Nah, my Dark Heresy 1e had the same issue.

When people were complaining about this game not getting any hype at gencon I thought about posting a video of the 2012 gencon when they released Only War, but it turns out that didn't get much hype either.

You'll have to go to the Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay G+ community. I can't post pix from there here.

For those having problems, If you could  keep the rest of us updated on what FFG does it would be much appreciated,I treat my books like antiques so they don't usually get the common usage others might have.Hopefully FFG does the right thing.

Guys, this one does have about 40 more pages than any WH40K core before it, that might be what's happening. However it's bound to happen my DH1 core is still somehow together and it's nearly off it's binding same with DotDG.

 

However implying that they cut corners on making the game is a bit of a cheapshot CPS, there's plenty different and they did originally try and put something out that was brand spanking new.

The later parts of the book are coming loose in my book. First time that has happened for me, in this series (at least without the normal abuse I put my books through).

Mine has cracked a little and that was only after a few hours.

 

My Black Crusade, Dark Heresy book of a few years and Deathwatch are basically falling apart.

 

I've had no issues with the binding of Rogue Trader, Only War or any supplements though.
