The Astra Militarum is the implacable military arm of the Imperium, and one of the largest forces in the galaxy. On thousands of battlefields scattered throughout the galaxy, the soldiers of the Astra Militarum march to war. They are the Hammer of the Emperor, who with faith, fury and sheer weight of numbers crush heretics and xenos alike beneath their boots. Massed ranks of Guardsmen unleash concentrated salvoes of las-blasts while officers bellow orders over the thunderous roar of tank and artillery fire.

  • Many broken links

    I have found in previous iBook codexes by GW that there might be one or two broken links to pop ups. However this codex seems to have more than most. In the Adeptus Mechanicus codex there are sentences that overrun and have lost words. As far as I can tell no one proof reads these iBooks, as some of the mistakes are so obvious it is down to pure carelessness. It is such a shame when formatting issues let down otherwise great products. GW you need to look at your release processes for e products, all because it is electronic is no excuse for sloppiness.
  • Some of the links don’t work

    Come on GW you get it right most of the time but loads of the internal links are broken and need fixing. The whole point of the enhanced version is the fast lookup of rules using the links.
