Join us for a first look at the Index Imperialis Apocrypha which pulls from older, rare Games Workshop books from yesteryear!
Today we are going to take a look at the newest installment of the Index Apocrypha series we have recently seen come out the Games Workshop door and this time it’s he good guys!
The new Index Imperialis Apocrypha book is roughly the size of a codex and has about 136 pages or so. The cover features some artwork that Blanceh did what I think was the old “beetle pattern” Reaver Titan.
This is a great book to place on your coffee table for your friends to learn something about some history and fluff behind Warhammer 40k. The contents are almost an idiots guide to the Imperium that walks you though a broad overview of the fluff and then starts to break it down into the individual factions, various battles, tons of artwork and more!
This is one of the iconic pieces of art in the book that features some of the earliest artwork depicting a Stormbird and is the basis for what lore we have today.
