Warhammer: High Elves is the indispensible guide to the mighty realm of Ulthuan, its regal lords and glorious armies. This book details Ulthuan’s turbulent history from the first cataclysmic war against Chaos, through years of schism, decline and determined defiance, and provides you with full rules to field a High Elf army in games of Warhammer.
This book also features an interactive miniatures gallery, handy quick-links for special rules and weapons, and will always be up to date with the latest FAQ’s.
The World That Was is no more, but the battle continues… Warhammer High Elves is designed for use with Warhammer The Game of Fantasy Battles. That game system is no longer supported, but this title remains available for those who want to recreate the epic battles of the lost world. To continue the war against Chaos in the Mortal Realms, check out Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

I like the way GW has taken advantage of some of the features you can't get with a physical book, particularly the pop-up boxes for quick access to rules. The book falls down in what I think of as one minor and one major way. The minor: as a reference book it would be more helpful to have the special item rules display on the page and the fluff display with a click (after all, one is likely to read the fluff once, but refer to the special item rules often). The major problem is that no sharing is possible. As a Warhammer player with several armies, I can lend a friend a physical army and a physical army book if we want to trade for a game. With the iBook, I can no longer lend the book. I would be happy if I could lend it and have it disappear from my library for a week while he builds his list or whatever. So there's a limitation if you want to treat the book like you actually own it, but otherwise, it's pretty good.
Good use of digital media
If this had simply been a direct copy of the paper book I would have been disappointed. Instead this version takes full advantage of the fact that it is a digital book. The 3d models are cool and quick links for rules make navigation simple and fast.
I took a chance with this and I am pleased with the result.
Glad they finally went digital, but...
There are two things which I find to be minor annoyances, the inability to rotate the book into portrait mode, and the that when you zoom into a picture it resets immediately instead of staying zoomed in. If they were to implement this I would give it 5 stars. Other than that, I find the 360 images and the links to be extremely helpful. It's very handy during battles, no more having to flip through pages to find stats or rules.
