"This is a limited edition Chaos Daemons codex. It comes with a special matt dust-jacket featuring a gloss Khorne illustration. Underneath, the hardcover finish is textured and with subtle artwork and lettering. It comes with a black ribbon bookmark, black edging and a certificate.
In addition to these lavish details, this limed edition book contains the same information as the standard edition: a full, rich background of the Chaos Daemons; the truths behind the daemonic invasions or realspace; a description of rules for the vibrant armies of the Chaos Daemons; a glorious showcase of Citadel miniatures; and a comprehensive army list that allows you to forge your Chaos Daemons into an all-conquering horde on the Warhammer 40,000 battlefield."
The standard editions are just that, at £30 each for the hardbacks, be they a Codex or Army Book.

The Herald Of Khorne looks little different from the usual Bloodletters, and if he's ranked up in a unit, he's going to be both a pig to place, and the detail at the rear, with the rope of skulls, is going to be hidden.
I'm a fan of neither the hair, the dress, or the pose.
Herald of Tzeentch, who, for £25 comes as part of the Chariot kit. The variety of the parts is impressive, and compared to the cost of the plastic Nurgle Herald it seems reasonably priced. It's just a shame that the Tzeentch rank and file are such poor models.
The Herald really looks really good on the chariot. and it's good to see that it's not using a flying stand.
I'm still unsure about the style of the flames on this model, but the extra bits included in the set for £25 make it a fair deal when buying the Herald. I suspect we'll see quite a few bits turning up in conversions.
The Blood Throne/Skull Cannon (as with the Tzeentch chariot) seems cheap at £25 for a dual purpose kit. While the individual parts are promising the model as a whole just doesn't add up. I can see the parts working quite well on a Chaos tank conversion, or something more bizarre.
All in all it's an OK release, with a few good models, and a lot of kits with conversion potential, although that's in part highlighted by the fact that the kits as intended aren't fantastic. It seems odd that there isn't a large monster type kit, undivided models, or the rumoured Greater Daemons.
