I prefer to speak the truth in such matters: Whether we like the laws or not, our governments will send their paid enforcers to steal our stuff or worse still, kidnap us and imprison us against our will where terrible things will be done to us if we don't do what they want.


You're one of those "glass is half full" kind of guys aren't you? :lol:

Not true. Games Workshop's website hosts the Mighty Empires rulebook, including rules for using it with the third edition of WFB.

Also, the company in question some years back published few of their boardgames (Horus Heresy and like) as free pdf-files, including the scanned counter sheets.

(By the way, if one searches Hasbro's website for HeroQuest, one can download from there the official Kellar's Keep Quest book.)

Thanks for the heads up.

Ammended wording to : and they have never released PDFs of their Warhammer rulesets, thereby all PDFs circulating on the internet are illegally distributed copies.

Which remains true.
