I have no idea what that book is. Every single officially produced book and expansion for WHQ that I've ever heard of can be found in the wiki article. I can get a description or picture when I search for this book, so frankly I have no idea.

Edit: after some more looking, whatever it is, it looks pretty shady, and in no way official from what I can see...heck, I can't even tell if it's real!

Where did you hear about it?

If it has a correct and matching ISBN number it must exist somewhere.

Is it anything to do with Warhammer Quest.....doubtful.


Edit: Yeah I'd steer clear. The description of their other works, available all at the £40ish range, seem to emply they are heavily thieved from other sources.......

"High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! " is slapped on almost all of thier "trade paperbacks".

Yep, thats what I thought, far too dodgy to be real. Thanks for the feed back.
I used to have a copy of Quest and gave it away in the middle of a divorce 8 years ago, silly me!
Oh well, ebay here i come!

Here's the cover: http://images.barnesandnoble.com/images/93320000/93326129.JPG

It's ... odd. If it were cheap i'd be tempted to read itt o see what it actually is.

It does look dodgy - and if it is just content from Wikipedia, then there is little value in buying it.

I wonder what GW legal would make of it :eek:

From that cover I'm expecting it to be a compilation of rulebooks and articles thieved from the internet and compiled to flog to stupid people for profit.

Well could not resist the temptation to find out exactly what you got for your £30, so bought "the Book", and as I thought was just wikepedia detriutus, have sent back will recieve refund shortly. So goes without saying resist and ignore this book, it is of no warhammer quest use.

This sounds like an excellent con, put a load of free wikipedia articles into a bundle and flog it for £30. Good job you can claim a refund back on it.

That's okay!

I've seen many of these types of publications on a website like Amazon (Dutch equiv). They always state they are wikipedia sources. What I don't understand is why nobody does anything against it. While it doesn't really sound illegal per sť, it's really weird you can buy this stuff off of renowned sites.
