I've just seen necron weapons in the Book.

I want some. All. Warscythes or a pair of hyperphase swords. And then i'll go Hunting deamons for fun. Greater Deamons….

 

weren't some of them already in the core rulebook?

Warriors, Flayed Ones, Tomb Stalkers and maybe one other, yeah. This book gives the rest of the profiles (well, most of 'em).

….for the record I did the armoury, new rituals, the first two of the advanced minions, and the investigations section.

Hey H.B.M.C.,

I am inferring that "did" means "wrote."  Do the new melee weapons require an exotic weapon training talent?  The Polix Heavy Khopesh is quite the power house.

Thanks

How can this be released? it's not on the uk release sheets, yet Lathe Worlds is.

 

 

 

It (along with The Soul Reaver for Rogue Trader) was sold to me by my FLGS back on Friday, 17AUG2012. It's also available as a download straight from FFG, so your release sheets - or your reading of them - must be in error.

Soul Reaver came out last week.

The release sheets in question come from Esdevium who are the biggest suppliers in the UK. If they don't have it, then noone in the country will. These books are also not on drivethrurpg either.

I've now got my copy in hand.  Yes, FFG, we know we are addicts.  We know you are our pusher.  Even with that, would a little quality control kill you?  No descriptive text for the void blade or warscythe?  And, the binding's already started to go after one read-through.  Bloody hell.

Glitches like that do detract from what is otherwise a fine book.  A lot of good stuff in there;  I was surprised to see Necrons added as a foil to Tzeentch, but it makes a twisted sort of sense when I think about it.

Cheers,

- V.

It was released earlier in some places. I bought it from a store that already had it in stock the on the day it was released. I got Koronus Bestiary nearly 2 weeks before it was 'released'.

And as for DTRPG.com… do they even sell hardcopies? If not, then it won't be on there yet.

They don't sell hardcopies, the question was in response to being able to download the book.

 So, I can't be the only person to notice that "Belazeith's" speech on Page 19 is basically Elizabeth I's Speech to the Troops at Tilbury, correct?

Well played, FFG.  Well played.

There seems to be a problem getting this book to the UK as it's not out next week either.

 

Well, that's certainly strange. I live in Finland and I got mine 7 days ago. I am more used to getting everything late compared to the rest of the world o.O

It seems no boat has arrived in Europe, yet…

My local retailers (in Berlin, Germany) are not able to get "Tome of Fate" for me, they're trying for weeks now. Same problem with amazon.co.uk /.de or other online-stores, so how come this is officially "released" for a month already but i can't get the book without ordering it overseas?

 It's really weird seeing that people from UK and Germany don't have their copies yet, since I live in Finland and got my copy from the FLGS three weeks ago o.O Wonder whats the problem FFG is having with shipping lately. Hope its not a sign of financial problems :l

At this stage, the ball is in the distributors' court, rather than being under FFG's control. For a good portion of Europe, this is Esdevium Games. I've known situations in the past where distributors have delayed certain releases, sometimes to spread out a busy period (such as shortly after GenCon) and/or avoid overwhelming retailers with more stock than they can easily store at a particular time..

Well, no, it's not in the distributor's court, that's the point! The distributors obviously are waiting to receive copies in order to ship them. I'd be extremely surprised if Esdevium were sitting on this given that gaming is a niche hobby and it makes them no money to hold off on rpg books! It would cost them to have stock sat in their warehouses as opposed to being available to shops to order, shops that probably want to order it.

Can't you just get it from somewhere else? Are there any local game stores you can go to?

BYE

Of course, but they can't get it until Esdevium have it for them to order. Until the distributors get it the shops can't sell it. The only other way would be to order it from another country which is expensive
