I like that everyone is showing off how they own the new IG codex, but the question was do you have the new Imperial Armor book.
To answer your question, no, I don't have 100 dollars right now for that thing, but I wish I could have it.

I would like the new Armor manual from Forge World but it is way to expensive. Way over priced, what are these guys thinking???

It's not that expencive... If you really want it then the price is no obstacle...
Besides it looks to be very interesting... and it will be a perfect addition to my existing Imperial armour library...
But 130$?
Didn't think it was that much... thought it was like 30-40£... some 50$ or a little more...

For that price I can get 2 boxes of Ork Boyz, 2 wartruks, a warboss, warbike, and a Nob. All at GW prices. That's almost a days pay for me after taxes.
I already have Imperial Armour I, II, and Update. What makes this new Imperial armor tome so good? What will inspire da WAAAGH? I mean make me run out and buy it?

130?!? I could buy 3-5 more tanks for that much. Heck, I would even be partially on the way to owning a Baneblade for that much.

the book is 75 dollars and that comes to about 36 cents a page for a 288 page book while the other books came to about the same cost per page if you think about it in that way this book is cheaper because it has a lot more full colour pages and its a hard cover

just wanted to say that

and no i dont have it yet but im gonna but it tommorrow because that is when they are getting it here in holland

Even with a lot of colour art in it, it does seem an awfully expensive book. Having actually been involved in the publication of RPG stuff, I've seen books of a similar size (or even larger) with similar quantities of art for sale for a lot less money (Mechanical Dream immediately springs to mind). To use Mechanical Dream as an example, it's roughly 360 pages and includes full colour plates, yet retails at around £25. Forge World/Games Workshop are probably doing much larger print runs than a small press RPG publisher, therefore their per unit cost should actually be a lot lower (initial print set-up costs accounting for a large chunk of your initial print run costs). In the end, I can't really see why it has such a high price point, unless their art/writing costs were through the roof.
