Many of us were looking forward to pre-ordering the new 30k rule book today, and I am sure FW were looking forward to selling it to us Horus Heresy fans, but it seems an though it is delayed!
Via the community site:
We know that you were expecting to be able to pre-order the Horus Heresy Age of Darkness Rulebook, but we’re afraid you’ll have to wait a little longer before you can order your copy.
As your constant companion in your Legion’s battles in the 31st Millennium, it’s important that the Horus Heresy rulebook is as good as it can possibly be. Following a print quality check, the decision has been made to delay the rulebook in order to make sure it meets the exacting standards you expect from all Forge World products.
It is odd that a book like this can be delayed on the day that we have been told it is scheduled to go up for pre-order on. I seem to remember the books are printed in China and shipped via freight over seas (which can take a while). I do hope they haven't just turned up for FW to find that they have all been printed wrong! In the past we have seen and even purchased a book which had a printer / binding defect from the FW red book range. I do recall FW were aware that there had been a problem reported with a few books and they were happy to resolve.
