Just a quick post this evening as I've spotted that Games Workshop has reprinted the classic Rogue Trader rulebook which is excellent news as getting a second hand copy of the original will set folks back over £100 on Ebay these days and the shiny new hardback is available at Warhammer World for £40.
While this is great, the problem is that it is only available in Warhammer World and cannot be ordered online. You cannot phone them up and order one. You cannot get it through Games Workshop stores. You can only get a copy if you actually go to Nottingham, into Warhammer World and buy it direct.
While I can understand the idea of a store exclusive, I cannot help but wonder why Games Workshop don't make it more readily available to buy to those who aren't willing or able to travel all the way to Warhammer World to pick up a copy themselves. I'm fairly sure that if they put it up on their online store, even as a limited time deal, they'd sell thousands of copies.
As much as I'd love a copy, I cannot see myself travelling all the way from Dundee to Nottingham just to get one. If anyone is in that neck of the woods though, please feel free to give me a shout and I'd be more than happy to pay for book and postage.
All the best!
