Default Anyone Remember An Old Free Pamphlet GW Handed Out Years Back?

About seven years ago I would say, in North American stores, Games Workshop had a staple bound booklet that was handed out for free at stores that carried Games Workshop products. The front cover was the same front cover as the Warhammer 40,000 3rd Edition Rulebook. It was a few pages in length and featured both Warhammer Fantasy as well as Warhammer 40,000. I distinctly remember two page battlefield views, one for Fantasy and one for 40k. I think the Fantasy one had Lizardmen on one side, and the 40k one was between Ultramarines and Eldar.

My question does anyone have this, or know where I could get a copy? It was a free handout so I wouldn't think it would violate GW copyright laws if someone reproduced it digitally.
Thanks so much for your help!

Why do you want it? Is there anything particularly juicy in it?

That booklet got me into the hobby and I wanted to re-visit it. Lots of sentimental value.

I remember a little book that advertised the games. One of the things that made me want to start playing. This was back when I wanted to play warhammer 40k and Lizardmen was my first choice in army.

I definitely remember poring over it numerous times when I first started. I could look, but I doubt I have it anymore...and if I did, it'd probably be marked up and torn beyond repair >_<

Hang on - I think I may have that somewhere actually...

Did it have general advice for each system about each organisation chart choice? Like advice for the heavy support choices, fast attack choices, troops and that lot?

Did it have 6 simple steps on how to paint an ultramarine? And how to paint a chaos regiment?

Yep, GW's attempt to branch out and lose the nerdiness rating attached to games workshop games.
Plus by the time they came out I had most of the models in the LOTR range anyway, so they didnt help me.
