Black Legion Supplement Released on iTunes.




The Black Legion Supplement has been released on iTunes.

You can buy it for $ 39.99 (yikes!) here.   

Description:

The Black Legion are among the most hated foes of the Imperium, vile traitors and fearsome warriors responsible for ten thousand years of terror and murder.

About this Book:


This Codex: Chaos Space Marines Supplement charts the history of the Legion, along with their Warmaster Abaddon, who stands poised to lead them to victory over the Imperium. Also inside you will find a showcase of Chaos Space Marine Citadel miniatures, presenting the warband colours and icons of those sworn to serve the Black Legion, supplemental rules that, in conjunction with Codex: Chaos Space Marines, allows you created a Black Legion force and a series of narrative missions that enable you to play through the Black Legion’s bloody history.



I am still not happy with paying full price for a digital download AND then the print version.  There should be a package price.

Print version:

Expected Release: 17 August 2013
Publisher: Games Workshop
Print Length: 157 Pages
Price: $39.99

I think a Package price would be neat, but kinda difficult to do through the iStore, but if the eBook was available for DL with purchase of Supplement through GW rather than Black Library then that'd be awesome...

My biggest conflict is that I have a really kick ass tablet, however buying digital doesn't support my local GW store, and I believe very strongly in supporting the store you play at, regardless of who owns it.

So, I think a package deal would be awesome, pre-order a book and pay like 5 extra for a digital copy or something like that, it would be great.

Wizards of the coast started putting digital download codes in the covers of their books. Buy the physical, get a one use code for the digital. Of course, gw will never do that. But it would be nice

I wouldn't say GW would never do that, but remember, the iPad books aren't just simple PDFs, they require a bit more work to but together than just giving a link to a PDF, also GW don't make them in-house, and they need to stop people downloading the iPad edition and then returning the book, its not a simple matter and while Wizards have been dipping their toe in to digital for years, since 4th edition D&D launched, GW have been trying it for what? A Year?

Well don't buy it twice then.

I can see paying about the same price for a digital version of a video game as it's physical version as you getting most of the same thing but in this case I can't really see the justification in the price. It's also fairly high considering that is more store than actual rules because it is a supplement to another book. No matter how many features are in it there is no way that this item is worth that much money. I really like the idea of the digital books but it seems that they are not being executed very well. Also, they need to be available on things besides I-products because I, like many out there, will not buy those products.

The digital download for Dust:Warfare is 1/2 the price of the dead tree version.

That's perfect.

I don't know if you guys have actually seen the digital books, but they are not meant to complement the print versions, they are an alternative. There is no reason to purchase both, unless you are a collector and completionist. The digital books are an entirely different format, and while the rules, fluff, art, and photos are essentially the same, they are presented more like web based content than a hardcopy physical book. Anyone buying both has only themselves to blame if they are unhappy; I would prefer it if GW would just release lower cost pdfs like Fantasy Flight and other more RPG oriented publishers, but it is what it is, and to claim the digital versions are a rip-off is uninformed and childish.

Well the PDF / eBook versions are usually 50% cheaper than the iPad or hardback versions. So of you want it cheaper wait for the PDF version.

Alan Preston said...

Sorry scrap that, they're usually around 20 - 30% cheaper. Still cheaper tho.

When did WotC start doing that, Stephen? A quick Google search shows no evidence that thats true.

I recall WotC _saying_ they would do something like that as part of the early marketing for 4e, but that never got implemented. (Indeed, they ended up shutting down PDF sales altogether shortly after 4e's release.)
