Book Review: Imperial Armor Volume 2, Second Edition

December 13, 2013 Posted by cranky

Cranky Old Gamer here once again with a book review from my good friend John, this time from the newest Games Workshop 40k Codex: Space Marines.

Hello friends of Cranky Old Gamer! We’ve got a real treat for you in the form of a book review again by John, always on the cutting edge of stuff from Forgeworld. This time he’s gotten his hands on a copy of Imperial Armor 12, and wow does it look like a great read. IA12 focuses on Necrons, Imperial Guard, and the Minotaurs chapter of Space Marines.
