seriously, why doesn't it? because GW couldnt be arsed, and we all know it. that rulebooks a mess. really couldnt be bothered could they.
this forum probably wouldnt be here if they'd put a bit more effort into it.
This forum is not just to learn the rules. I enjoy conversing with other gamers and hearing their opinions on the game and it makers.
Agreed. I wonder if you've tried using the glossary in the front? It works just about as well as any index.This forum is not just to learn the rules. I enjoy conversing with other gamers and hearing their opinions on the game and it makers.
Would you want to index that book? Any book, for that matter? It's not exactly a piece of cake.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
This question has bugged me too. It sure would be nice.
Writers rarely index their own books, if at all. Publishers, too, often pay someone else to index their writers' books. And I don't see GW paying whatever company to do that, and even if they did, I wonder how effectively an 'outsider' could index a game with so damned many rules.
I put those skinny post-its on pages and write something on them. Then I put them on pages to serve as tabs. It makes finding stuff much easier.
WotC indexes their D&D books and they have more niggly little variable rules than any GW game. Also the 40k rulebook has an index doesn't it? Seems like laziness to me.
That said, I agree indexing is not fun. My old man had a book published by OUP (he is an ancient military historian) and they made him index it himself because of all the specific terms and jargon. He paid me to do it in my summer holidays in year 10 and man was that boring. After a week I just wanted to give it up. It turned out OK though but I never want to do that again as long as I live.
