5.0 out of 5 stars Failure to comply will lead to summary execution by Commissariat officials. You have been warned!, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful piece of work!
It's the handbook any Imperial Guard is handed out. It describes everything your average Infanteryman needs to know to be a perfect soldier, including tactics and everyday life.
And if you play or run an Only War campaign, it's THE ultimate game accessory for Game masters and players alike.

A must have for Warhammer 40.000 and Only War addicts!

4.0 out of 5 stars Only War Game Master's Screen, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very helpful for Only War game masters, with a thick, wonderfully illustrated, cardboard screen. You can find all the useful references you might need during a game, and all is well organised.
A story to run is included, and it is quite a nice adventure to run. I only wish it would be the introduction for the supplement that comes after in the range. If you ran the first story in the book, you'll have to move the players' location to a new front, and if you plan on running the "official" campaign, you'll have to move it once more. That's a bit of a shame, especially since if you've played the scenario from the rule-book, the themes, tempo and scenes from the GM's kit will feel a bit like déjà-vu...
I also regret there are no separate character-sheets in this kit, since photocopying the sheets in the rule-book can be a bit tricky.
And an erratum for the rule-book would have been nice (I'm not saying there are many mistakes and typos, haven't found any... But I am sure there are some... There always are...)
Good product on the whole!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Emperor needs you!, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is all I expected for. The book in itself is good quality, strong and solid.
As for the content, everything you need to play is inside, clear rules with no surprise (I already own Dark Heresy and have been playing Warhammer 40.000 since 1988). Many regiments to choose from, and you can even create your own (Tanith First and Only or Valhalan Ice Warriors, if you cannot wait for the next game-expansion). Many different classes (Commissar!!!!!!!!!) to choose from (even though you cannot play a sniper... That might be the only reproach I would make, but that is to come in the next expansion as well).
Everything is well explained, with lots of clear examples.
In my opinion, even though the Game Master's Kit is useful, you won't need it for your first gaming sessions.
Great product!
