Forge World and Games Workshop: Whether you are a fan of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Warhammer 40,000, Blood Bowl or The Hobbit we will have something for you to enjoy at Warhammer World’s New Year’s Open Day on January 2nd! Get your hands on an exclusive piece of Warhammer 40,000 history – Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader is coming back from the archives for 2017!
Throughout 2017 Games Workshop will be celebrating 30 years of Warhammer 40,000, and we’re starting the party at Warhammer World’s New Year’s Open Day. The book that began Warhammer 40,000 as a table top strategy battle game will be available, in a faithful reproduction, to add to your archives – It’s truly an artifact to be proud of. How faithful is this reproduction? It’s been created from a scan of an original edition, taken from Games Workshop’s own Archives!
From Andy Hoare about the new book - ''And having seen this in the flesh, I can say it's of much higher spec than the original, 1987 hardback! The paper stock is heavier too, so it's a really nice, thick book.'' and ''The original typos are still there- they actually have to be for legal reasons!'' ''If it's changed in any way it's a new edition rather than a reprint and has to be logged as such with the British Library, which triggers all sorts of other stuff which makes it more trouble than it's worth.''
Alongside the Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader book a mug is also available, with the cover art wrapped around it, Crimson Fists blazing away in the now famous last stand formation. The first time you’ll be able to get your book and mug will be January 2nd, and you’ll only be able to get them in person, at Warhammer World, and at selected events around the world through 2017.
