Default Warhammer 40k Armoury...book?

I remember reading in an old WD that there was a Warhammer 40k Armoury book and I've been looking for it all morning.Did they really publish one, or did misread something?

They did indeed. No idea if it's still around. To be honest, it's not really worth getting; either you'll not need 80% of it, or you already own every Codex. Either way, it's pointless.

It is going to be very out of date now anyway, unless they update it after each codex is put out. It's not a very thick book, so it's a good on hand reference you can put in your case.

Yeah its a useless book. They released it when there was only a few updated 4th ed codexs, so really the info in it will be out of date and will continue to go out of date. It's just not worth the time.

Now if they'd made it an online resource it would've been a good idea....

Well. It's on the very first page of the Warhammer 40k section of the UK Online Store.

Warhammer 40,000: Wargear

The problem is - it was released BEFORE the Tau Codex. That meant that what, it had the updated armoury sections for the new Space Marine Codex only? (I'm sure there was another codex release in between, but it escapes me what it was) So no Tau, Tyrannids, Dark Angels, Eldar, Black Templars...

And not only that, they managed to get typos in there from copy/pasting the pages over. How that happens, I don't know.

I've basically gone and made my own compilation just by printing out all the current Reference Sheets off the GW site and putting them all in a folder. That seems to work a lot better.
