Format: Hardcover
I bought this a few days ago out of nostalgia (I last played the 2nd Edition, back when I was about 12), but once I started reading the rule book I absolutely devoured it. The game has improved so much over the years. I no longer play, but relating the new rules to how I remember the game being played it seems everything has been streamlined and clarified for common sense.

Beyond the rules is a large and detailed "lore" section, giving the background to the game setting and providing a flavour of the various races (see the respective Codex army books for more depth). The various aspects of the Imperium of Man receive the most attention due to influence they have over much of the setting.

There is also a "hobby" section which is something I wish had existed in my old copy of the game. It provides a nice bit of inspiration for the painting/model making/collecting aspect of the game and gives a nice highlight to what for me was the most fun aspect of Warhammer 40,000.

One thing I did miss in this latest edition was the little narrative call-outs - the small snippets of stories set in the game world which were usually only a couple of hundred words at most. I used to love these as they often added a lot more dimension to the setting being crafted by the rules and game lore. So a star off for that, but otherwise a great update to a fantastic game.

Well it wasn't hardcover, despite the description & looks like the one that comes with the battle game rather than the actual
rulebook. It's more of the abridged rules. My real objection is the description of 'hardcover' which is misleading.
