Not for that price I won't.

Jeez I don't understand how anyone pays that kind of money for a bunch of 1's and 0's anyway. The whole story is already out on the internet if you want to know what happened.

Get ready to be shocked by people buying art, games, movies, tv shows and books all in digital format - some for WAY WAY more (some educational material goes into the hundreds and its all text!)

Yeah and I personally feel they're foolish too. Never pay full price for a game, movie or TV show. Or if you do, make sure it's a physical copy you can digitize yourself. I understand the convenience aspect of it and or some people its the only option but part of the overall cost of something like this is the manufacturing/resources/shipping. Digital doesn't have any of that to worry about, and in the case of the End Times books they were released with a limited run anyway. That ensured they wouldn't be sitting in a warehouse somewhere taking space/not selling. GW made their profit on them....hell they sold so well they had to do reprints in soft cover to try and meet demand.

For something like the End Times I certainly understand someone wanting them for collecting purposes, hell I own the Tamurkhan book from Forge World. But that price for something I can't physically hold in my hand seems silly, especially since GW already made their money off those books 6 years ago.

On moon miranda.

Oh man, the Tamurkhan book was a glorious work of art, I'd pick up that book just for the cool factor, but definitely not a digital copy. That's a display piece for sure.

It was worth every penny, that, and the Monstrum Arcanum. Also very good reading
