Warhammer 40,000 wargame 5th Edition Rulebook, HARDBACK.
"The Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook is the ultimate and essential guide to playing Warhammer 40,000 - In a savage future age, Mankind must battle for survival in a galaxy riven by destruction and bloodshed. Warhammer 40,000 is set in a time when power-armoured Space Marines and the uncountable numbers of the Imperial Guard must stand against the slavering hordes of alien warriors.
This 320-page hardback rulebook contains all the information you need to get started with Warhammer 40,000, including: full rules for fighting tabletop battles, a history of the 41st Millennium, a guide to the races and armies that can be found in the far future, and a hobby section on how to choose, collect and paint a Warhammer 40,000 army of Citadel miniatures and set-up a battlefield to fight over."
"It is rather obvious that since the release of 3rd that GW had single goal in mind with the rulebooks: optimize and streamline the game so it is more welcoming to the general public. 5th edition kept up with this trend well by not really adding new rules and instead saw many removed. Back in 3rd and 4th edition, armies had faction rules for some armies, similar though more open than those in 8th edition. On top of that, Codices had Armoury sections which contained a great deal of wargear options for characters and unit leaders. These were removed during 5th edition, instead they were being replaced with a selection under the character in the army list section, now with the reduction of many clutter items that were sometimes simply given to the character by default." - www.belloflostsouls.net
