  • Waaaay overpriced

    By BankruptBilbo
    As most others have written here this is a disgracefully over-priced product. GamesWorkshop have really pushed the limit on value for money with this!!
  • Useful product

    By MattMcD1978
    I found this book really good for helping me paint my miniatures. It gave me what I needed to make them good enough for the table. Without the guidance I wouldn’t have done as nice a job on my miniatures as I have. Personally the price wasn’t an issue, I didn’t find it overpriced and would happily pay for other similar guides in the future.
  • Not willing to pay so much for something that should be included for FREE!

    By Talos1963
    After purchasing and reviewing the painting guide for Dark Vengeance, and finding that no updates have been made to that product since its release to amend shortfalls, I am unwilling to pay well over double the price for this guide. The sample offers no clues as to items that are included this time that were omitted in DV. The store page promises video and interactive materials, but so did DV, and it failed to deliver. *Update* I have been making a study of Games Workshop's current game releases, and in line with that exercise, elected to purchase this product. I stand by my original statement, that it is overpriced for what you get. Value for money is very poor. The book has been updated twice to correct errors with the colour swatches (the latest update dated 6th of February). There are STILL glaring errors in the book when comparing the photos to the accompanying swatches, notably the Goblins 'clothing'. Somebody new to the hobby and relying on the accuracy of this product would be steered completely wrong by instructions presented here. Comparing the book to the earlier Dark Vengeance guide, the quality of the content is improved (errors notwithstanding) all the miniatures, including the limited edition Radagast are covered in better detail than the figures in DV. It still falls far short of my expectations, when compared to the paint guides offered previously in print (White Dwarf and included with the game). As such I cannot recommend it as a purchase. Caveat Emptor!
  • Too expensive

    This product, while visually appealing, is completely overpriced. In essence it is a compendium of photographs taken at different stages of the painting process, with a short explanation attached as to how the different effects are achieved. It would be more practical to buy a cheaper painting guide offered by Games Workshop to learn the painting techniques (for a fifth of the price) and then look at pictures of the models to judge the colours used. I would expect to pay this much for a hard copy of this product, but never a digital version.

    Too expensive for what it is. Should be priced much lower
