I've always loved antique and rare books. Since I was little I've wanted to own a bookstore. I'm also fascinated by illuminated manuscripts and bookbinding. Warhammer has always been one of the most important things in my life, sad I know. To me it is more than "just a game". It has played a very large part in my childhood development. I love the artwork, the miniatures and the stories. So I have decided to put all of these loves together in one form. I am going to start making leather bound copies of most of the rulebooks for Rogue Trader and 3rd Edition Warhammer Fantasy. The list of books I want to do is: Rogue Trader Rulebook, Warhammer 40k Compendium and Compilation, Battle Manual, Vehicle Manual, Waaagh! Orks, 'Ere We Go, Freebooterz. Warhammer Fantasy 3rd edition rulebook, Warhammer Armies, Warhammer Siege, Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness, Lost and the Damned. Each one will be its own volume, except 'Ever We Go and Freebooterz, which I will probably bind together. Each one will be full leather bound.
When will this being?
It has already begun.
The final nudge of inspiration for this project came from Geoff at Fimm McCool's, who is binding Warhammer Fantasy's many editions into leather bound books. He is working on a step by step tutorial on the process, so you should check that out if you are interested.
