5.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee table book Nov. 25 2009
Mostly great art, great short stories, just a cool book if you're interested in the 40k universe. I strongly recommend it.

I am a big fan of all of the artwork presented in this type of book. I find myself highly inspired to paint after leafing through it...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value Jan. 27 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the heftiest art books I own and is an excellent conversation piece suitable for a coffee table or a bookshelf. It's a large glossy black hardcover book with the tastefully subdued sliver dust cover as seen above.

However, another reviewer indicated, the art can be a bit hit or miss with several pieces more sketches or conceptual art.

Still, for me the main draw of this is having the tale of the Horus Heresy spelled out in one volume. I would recommend it as a good supplement to fans of the Horus Heresy novel series.

A word of advice to those who are interested in purchasing this - be sure not to overpay! It seems to periodically go in and out of print - just be patient and wait for it to be restocked. Deny those would-be price gougers who would charge over $100 for this - madness!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quality over quantity Nov. 9 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a massive book filled with text and pictures. Unfortunately, for my taste, the art is pretty bad. That's a subjective analysis, but see if you can find some examples. If you like it, the book is filled with it. If you don't, well the quality doesn't change much. I am enjoying reading it. Real fans of the Warhammer 40k mythology will be getting there moneys worth I suppose. For the casual fan I'd say get it at the lowest price possible. I wouldn't buy it again in retrospect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long shipping time but very affordable July 15 2011
By Yuriy
It took a long time to get to my house but for the reduced price and free shipping it was well worth it. The book is as was described in the description, brand new, no damage, arrived in a padded envelope. Nothing else to really say, everything was as described, but like I said the long shipping time is the only thing that might turn some people off, but because it was free I saw no problem with it.
