I've just received from an eBay auction a copy of the Skaven army book: but now I'm worried it isn't the current edition. It has the same artwork as the one listed on the GW online store, and is also 80 pages, but has a red border around the edge of the picture which is not present on the picture on the online store. I think the one I have was published in 2002, looking inside the cover. Is this the current edition, or have I been misled in the auction?

That's should be the current one. It's one of the oldest books in the line-up.

Thanks for letting me know: so the only difference is the presence of the red border, and none of the content?

Yes. They changed the look of the covers at some point, but it's only a very minor cosmetic change. There have only been two Skaven Army books as far as I know and you would know if you had the old 4th edition one.

Whew! :) Thanks to both of you.

(I actually do have the old 4th edition one too, somewhere in a box...)

The red borders were introduced approximately in 2003 or with the beginning of 2004. New print runs of the older army books done since then received the same borders.
