I'm not sure where else to put this but... I'm considering buying the book "Horus Heresy: Collected Visions" you know, that big art book thingy. The question is, is it worth it? I mean, it should have a load of history and pretty good artwork but I think that most of the stuff might be outdated with the Horus Heresy books already out now. Any opinions?
Because if I don't get this book I'm planning to buy a bunch of Flashman Novels instead :yes:

The book is basically the four Horus Heresy artbooks combined into one giant tome. According to the staff in GW Cardiff there is also some additional material in there somewhere, but as I do not have the separate Heresy books I cannot tell.
I bought the book the other day and I love it. It is rammed full of weird and wonderful art and contains a huge pile of information on the heresy. For £30 you get a hardback book with hundreds of colour artworks from the old Sabertooth Card games, backed up by reams of text. I'd say its worth a look if you do not have the separate books, but not worth it at all if you do have them. Best idea would be to wander into a GW store and have a look at the copies they keep on the shelf to see what you think.
I'm a bit of a fluff nut, and I really like GW artwork, so I'm really pleased with this book and would recommend it. Its definately not made obsolete by any other books out at the moment, and is indeed cheaper than buying the separate Horus Heresy books from the Black Library.
Hope this helps mate.
It is a very awesome book.
Some of the writing is a bit iffy, as is some of the artwork, but generally it is super-good.
Roll a dice if you can't decide... ^_-
