Warhammer 40K Limited Edition Madness
Codex Space Marnies Ultimate Edition
Available here £150/ $250
Limited to 500 copies, Codex: Space Marines: Ultima Edition is a momentous collection presented in a heavy duty, soft-touch, magnetically sealed box. Inside are four hardback volumes that delve into glorious detail on everything to do with the Emperor’s Finest.
Open the magnetic lid and discover the full colour artwork adorning the inside then explore the contents:
Galaxis, a hardback wallet encasing a fold-out, full colour star map which featured in Codex: Space Marines. This version includes more locations, and more information, showing the Chapter home worlds, crusade fleets and other details to delight any Space Marine fan.
Illuminatus, a 72 page full colour, hardback art book showcasing the artwork from Codex: Space Marines. Each illustration is shown on its own page (or pages) and includes artist names and mediums. This book allows you to view the art in all its glory and it might just inspire your own hobby projects.
Adeptus Astartes, an 80-page full colour, hardback miniatures showcase book. This contains brand new miniatures photography, including a wealth of close-up shots. The entire book is devoted to showing off the Space Marines miniatures range.
Codex: Space Marines, a 178 page full colour, hardback codex. Inside this book is where you’ll find your collection’s unique numbering. Open the cover and you’ll see which of the 500 copies you own. This edition is presented in a unique cover with a red ribbon bookmark.
All four of these volumes are presented in a soft-touch matt finish with gloss detailing, and the pages are edged in black.
The Chaos Collection
Available here £175/ $290
Limited to 500 copies worldwide, the Chaos Collection is the ultimate compendium for all those tainted by the warp.
This collection contains four volumes, all fitting snugly inside a weighty, heavy duty, matte black box. The box itself is emblazoned with two Chaos icons on the front and back, only by opening the magnetic seal will you reveal the true nature of the contents.
Each volume is presented in a premium matte black hardcover with black page edgings and finishing touches such as high gloss Chaos icons on the spine.
In the box you will find:
- Codex: Chaos Space Marines
- Codex: Chaos Daemons
- Black Legion A Codex: Chaos Space Marine Supplement (available for the first time in print)
- An art folio containing three collectible prints of the artwork from the original book covers
There is also a mysterious design on the corner of each cover that seems to carry some significance. We’d advise you don’t put the four corners together as we can’t be held responsible for the consequences…
Black Legion Supplement Limited Edition
Limited to 500 copies worldwide, this edition is presented in a unique hardback cover and features all of the contents of Black Legion: A Codex Supplement.
The hardback cover is presented in matte black with contrasting high gloss detailing. Each book is uniquely numbered inside an Eye of Horus graphic on the end paper. This, coupled with black page edging and black ribbon bookmark make this the ideal book for Black Legion collectors.
Within the 72 pages of this book you will find:
- The story of Black Legion’s fall from grace and rise to power, including the tale of their infamous Warmaster, Abaddon the Despoiler.
- A showcase of Chaos Space Marine Citadel miniatures, presenting warband colours and icons of the Black Legion
- A set of supplemental rules including Warlord Traits and Chaos Artefacts that, along with Codex: Chaos Space Marines, allow you to assemble your Black Legion models into a force for Warhammer 40,000 battles
- A series of narrative missions that enable you to play through Black Legion’s bloody history, alongside a set of Altar of War missions that showcase the Black Legion’s deadly tactics.
Black Legion is designed work alongside the rules found in Codex: Chaos Space Marines, which you will need in order to field a Black Legion collection on the tabletop
Seriously, what is this angle about?
The limited editions are always rather sexy looking and priced rather insanely, and these are no exceptions.
Beautiful looking books with some rather funky cool added content, but these really are only for the most hardcore and solvent of gamers.
I still can’t quite work out who the Choas Collection is for, as I can’t see there being many people who don’t have all the codices and supplements contained within before it was released, as well as having the money and compunction to buy this collection, but that’s just me, and I would certainly have one if I had the spare cash.
Anybody going to picking up any of these or have any thoughts on the limited edition quandary?

Prosopagnosia: A deficit in the processing of visual information relating to faces, while visual processing of other objects is unimpaired. It is caused by damage to a specific brain region, the fusiform face area, which is specialised for the analysis of distinguishing facial features. Sufferers may not recognise other people, even if they have met many times before, and must learn to distinguish others by their hairstyle, voice, dress, or gait.
Tests show that subjects may retain some recognition of other people, but in a non-conscious way. Although subjects with prosopagnosia are often unable to accurately classify faces as familiar or unfamiliar, they do show skin-conductance responses to familiar faces. This suggests that an affective, emotional response to another person is preserved even though conscious awareness of their face is lost.
