Reward their ingenious marketing with piracy - It's what they seem to be going for.

I'd rather just stab them in the throat.

Those micro-book downloads are just the special character stats? I briefly looked over them but seeing as Ive been away from the game so long wasn't sure.
I take it they dont add them in with the newest chapter codex anymore. Thats a shitty way to force you to pay $5 to get to field your desired toon.
Games Workshop sent their historical division down the crapper, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the fantasy/sci-fi close behind.

Don't forget their most brilliant product announcement yet, a giant miniatures case to fit all your terrain and super heavy vehicles -- that also doubles as a transforming Warlord Titan you can field on your 12'x8' Realm of Slaughter game board! Amazing! Remember kids, Apocalypse is Warhammer. And for all you busy parents shopping for little Timmy's Christmas presents, if in doubt, buy three because you can always combine them later for an even bigger robot.

In other news... I dig the idea of expanded rules for fortifications and whatnot. Even if they arent meant for competitive gaming.

Riptide today in the WH advent releases. I have to say, I'm digging getting up each morning and seeing what the blokes have come up with.

All these datathingies, minicodexes, expansion packs, etc. they all are great for the basement player. But they really do make it harder and harder for competitive players without just outright banning some supplements.

Looked at the Riptide release.. Not seeing any actual new rules or items or whatnot in the description. Just sounds like a "how-to" guide on running them. If so, sounds like an awful way to spend a few bucks, hopefully there's more to it!

They have to say Dataslate to be the thing I'm talking about. The riptide one says Tactica so I assume it is exactly that ~ pay $3 to have people who don't know how to play their own game tell you how to play their own game.

Today's dataslate is http://www.blacklibrary.com/games-workshop-digital-editions/Tau-Fireblade-Support-Cadre.html

Apparently for $4 your Broadsides and 1 Riptide can now have Tank Hunter and some other anti-space marine toys added on.
