“I’ve never seen anything like Space Marines in action. Anyone who sees them knows in his soul they are the God-Emperor’s creations. More than that, you know that through them He is still watching over us.

Was very excited about this, went to the rpgnow website and downloaded the preview file to try on my Ipad. Then tried viewing this preview in Goodreader, Ibooks, Stanza even my ComicZeal4 reader. Most of the pages look and read great, except for those small boxes of captions, like the last page of the preview (after the Sethahar paragraph) which is completely washed out, the text font is white and unreadable.

This is not a new problem with FFG pdfs (friend had told me about the same issue with previous FFG Warhammer 40k pdfs), but until it is fixed, I would rather wait to get the hardcopy of this item than download the pdf and be unable to read sections of the document.

Hopefully FFG will address these issues, which I believe are related to jpeg layering, but I am no technical expert), until then, note me as an interested customer, who will wait for the point where these pdfs are readable on my Ipad.
