5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise, excellent, 22 April 2016
Clear and concise ruleset with just the right balance between complexity, simplicity and abstraction to allow for smooth gameplay.
In the busy lives we lead these days, the chance to throw down with a simple but tactically diverse game is a real boon. The firmly tongue-in-cheek setting and deliberate openness to using whatever miniatures and scale you like all adds to the package.
as for the physical book itself, a couple typos have slipped through (but not crucial ones) and the author has admitted they accidentally left the partial cover rules out of the manuscript - but the gorgeous artwork, great photography and overall quality of the product make up for these minor lapses.

Another reviewer (Wraith Lord), complained about the lack of an official miniatures range and the supposed difficulty of finding suitable miniatures. Frankly they clearly haven't looked properly as there are dozens of online sources of 2mm-10mm miniatures - a good number of which are even listed in the back of the book to help you out!

This review is from: Ticket to Ride (Toy)
A great strategic board game for all the family. Dead simple to learn with tonnes of replay-ability and fun to go up against friends and family in the race to build on key routes as quickly as possible.
Highly Recommended.

This review is from: Tsuro - The Game of the Path (Toy)
The rules are a little bit odd to get your head around when you're reading them off the page, but once you actually start to play it all makes sense and you realise how very simple the core of the game is with it's tactical challenge of tile placement.

A superb album of soaring anthems and dancefloor numbers. Thoroughly recommended, even just for the excellent final 14 minute track of, "Knights of Shame" -m never mind all the other great songs, all drawing on a wide range of musical styles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treat for the eyes and imagination, 4 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seriously guys, while more experienced members of the hobby may well have at least half the art scattered throughout old rulebooks, white dwarfs and previous art books, I heartily recommend this book.

It's pretty damn cheap on Amazon too right now, which is a bonus. 144 pages of brilliant Imperium-focused artwork from across the history of 40k. Plus it really is an artbook focused on the guts of the imperium, there are no space marines and barely a handful of what might count as guardsmen.

It could possibly be viewed as an updated Inquisitor's Sketchbook, but really it isn't, as the book features the work of over a dozen artists from sources ranging from stuff I believe dates to the original Rogue Trader 1st edition 40k right up to the Dark Heresy books. Whereas the Sketchbook was John Blanche's personal drawings for the Inquisitor game.

I would even go as far as saying this is probably my favourite artbook now over the Inquisitor's Sketchbook.
