|Deathwatch Collectors Edition | Published 16 November 2010|
"Your fate is to know that which may not be known, to look into those places of darkness and desolation and know that horrors look back upon you. Speak not to your brothers of such things, but use the gifts you have been given, by the Emperor himself, to blast and sear and rend and banish all those who would deny us our destiny."
Today, we're excited to offer an update. Deathwatch Collector's Edition will begin shipping in early December, and it's not too late to pre-order your copy!
The moment you behold its weathered exterior and surface details, you will appreciate the Deathwatch Collector's Edition as a stunning creation unlike anything you've ever seen. This masterful edition has been produced as a strictly limited and numbered edition of 2,000 copies worldwide. Whether you're a player, game master, or a Warhammer 40,000 enthusiast, there is no Deathwatch-related volume that is more highly sought after. To own a copy of the Deathwatch Collector's Edition is to take on the role of custodian of a remarkable relic.
The Deathwatch Core Rulebook is housed in a hefty ammo crate fashioned from metal, and encrusted with Deathwatch iconography on all sides. The front face and spine are embellished with spectacular ornamentation reminiscent of the Deathwatch logo, portraying both skull and crossbones and the Inquisitorial Rosette in stark relief. The entire case is protected by a Librarian's key with chain that wraps around the cover, ensuring it remains closed and hidden from spying eyes.
Safely ensconced within is a specially-bound volume of the Deathwatch Core Rulebook, available exclusively in this edition. From the rulebook's silver gilt edges, the matching Deathwatch skull and Inquisitorial Rosette emblazoned across its cover, to the ribbon bookmark that will keep your most referenced pages at your fingertips, it is a work of undeniable craftsmanship.
This exquisite tome sits snugly in one half of the case, held securely in place by a genuine leather strap and buckle decorated with the Imperial Aquila. The book itself is printed on a parchment-like heavy stock that will evoke the feeling that you're reading an aged, historical document. Within its pages is everything you need to safeguard the Imperium from hostile xenos forces, to seek out and crush the root of heresy and sedition, and to continue the fight against foul daemon hordes that crawl forth hungrily from beyond the Warp.
Place your order, and be prepared to join the watch next month!

United with their battle-brothers, players will complete extraordinary missions involving some of the greatest heroes and deadliest opponents the Warhammer 40,000 universe has to offer.
usually When i bought the other Limited ED they came before the ordinary, this one a couple of months later.. not good!
Silver gilt edges? This is the first I've heard of it and the book in the picture doesn't have them. Is this an addition that the pre-production mock up lacked?
Can I just buy the box to put Dark Heresy in?
From the mail:
As an expectant owner of this stunning collectible, we're excited to inform you that we will begin shipping these magnificent tomes domestically in early December, with International shipping soon after that.
So international shipping wil be later? And as it takes longer this will mean no deathwatch in 2010 for international orders? This is a serious disappointment. Why not ship at the same time? That way we'll have it with Christmas.
Merry Christmas to me...!!! ;)
