For the princely sum of £14 including postage, I bought a copy of the 1994 (2nd edition) Eldar codex, and the 1998 (3rd edition) Dark Eldar codex.
|Codex Eldar, 1994
|Codex Dark Eldar, 1998
If I'm honest, I only really bought the Dark Eldar codex, because it was listed alongside the Eldar codex, but I spent a lot of my middle teenage years poring over the 1994 Eldar book. But why buy copies of books I already own? I think you might know the answer:
|Signed by Jes Goodwin, John Blanche, Rick Priestly and Mark Gibbons
|Signed by Phil Kelly, Gav Thorpe, Andy Hoare, Alessio Cavatore and a couple of others I don't recognise
I know, the Dark Eldar codex isn't old enough or cool enough, but you've got to agree that's a fine set of signatures on the Eldar codex, right? I just need to get it signed by Geoff Taylor, Wayne England and Bill King, and that's a full house!
If all this geekery isn't enough for you, how about doing some signature comparisons. First up, here's Jes Goodwin's distinctive rune in triplicate:
|Signed copies of 'The Gothic & the Eldritch' (JG sketchbook, Eldar codex and Eternal Champion BC5 box
And if you don't like seeing Jes' signature (weirdo), here's a triptych of Blanche scribbles:
|Signed copies of 1989 Fantasy Miniatures book, Eldar codex and Warhammer Armies
I freely admit it, I think they're quite cool!
