The Warhammer 40,000 Legends collection. 80 hardback 40k and Horus Heresy books, complete with some lovely new art across the spines. Cool, right? I’ve got a competition running to win a subscription, and I’ve got reviews on the way looking at the books themselves. I’m a fan already, and I think it’s going to be awesome. I’m going to be totally open about this though…
I got an email a little while ago asking if I’d like to get involved in the launch campaign for the collection, which would mearn the chance to get hold of copies of the books, run a competition etc. I said yes, obviously!
Hold on a sec. ‘Obviously’? That’s an interesting choice of word, right? Let’s break it down.
I’m a Black Library fan. A big fan – nerd, superfan, whatever. I buy A LOT of Black Library books, go to events, pick up limited edition versions of the books. I’m also a collector. I like having the full set, lining everything up on the bookshelf. If I’m collecting a series and there’s something I can get, I’ll get it – audio dramas, limited editions, calendars, the lot.
A massive series of 40k books, in beautiful hardback format, with awesome new spine artwork? This is RIGHT up my street!
I was already interested, I’d investigated earlier and picked up the test subscription a few months ago. I was already planning an article or two for the blog about the collection. So when I got the email asking if I’d get involved, it was (in the words of Kevin Bacon) a no-brainer. I put in the work writing reviews and talking about the collection, and in return I get the opportunity to get involved and get my hands on the books.
So what’s the plan, how am I going to get involved? Well to start off with, I’ve got the #my40klegend competition running, giving you guys (i.e. anyone reading this) the chance to win a full subscription. That’s pretty cool, to begin with. I’ll then be publishing a range of reviews and opinions regarding the collection, looking at things like the thought process behind the collection, the choice of titles, the standard of production and so on.
Got any requests or ideas? Let me know, and I’ll see if I can help out. In the meantime, if you fancy a bit more info about the collection then check out the website at http://warhammer40klegends.com.
