Warhammer 40,000 Legends Collection - Fortnightly Black Library Collectables

via JPW on facebook it appears GW and the BL have snuck a fortnightly series of Hardback books past us and on to the shelves of Newsagents, WH Smiths and Supermarkets all over the UK.

Launching right now this new series seems similar to the current Marvel, DC and Dredd offerings giving collectors a resonably prices hardback novel and magazine every fortnight.

Running to 80 issues this seems a good collection but the real draw is the free gifts you get if you sign up for a subscription (that can be cancelled at any time and you could get your free gifts by the time issue 5 is out, but it has also been noted though that each "delivery" is 4 issues and those are £40 but there could be the interpretation that when a gift is with your "2nd Delivery" this isn't your second issue but your second tranche of 4 books, this makes it at least a £180 spend but then 9.99 for a Hardback isn't bad, especially to get some freebies).

more details are here:


  1. Looks like it's going to launch National soon, the Facebook page has gone live:

  2. Subscribed to this but be warned you do not get a free book with your first delivery as they advertise in their words we are all misreading it you get charged for both books with the first delivery at £1.99 plus £6.99 total charge £8.98.

    It is us the subscribers who are misreading the very clear information on the website that you get a free book in the first delivery and you in fact get it in the second delivery and even though they have clearly stayed first we are wrong.
    Also the call centre is in South Africa and the line is beyond terrible you can not hear them clearly but that pales compared with their customer care which is about as existent as Dodo.

    Be warned Hatchette can not be trusted, deliberately mislead customers and have lower than zero customer care. I am surprised a company like GamesWorkshop have any dealings with this disreputable excuse for a company.
