I'm sad to say this was a long time coming. teh whole point of the Living rulebook was to keep costs down  (and the rules as current as possible) by making them online as a "Living Rulebook." The current print stocks were only being sold until they sold out.  For a while now it was planned that there would be no more hard (paper) printings of Armada.

Fortunately the Armada can still be downloaded for free here:

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?catId=cat480005a&categoryId=1100007&section=&aId=4300022

The first ten pages are missing, but most of this refers to reserves and reinforcements, and we are including the gist of this in the 2010 FAQ/Errata when it is complete.

I wish I'd known that. I'd been planning to pick up a copy for those first pages and the hobby section, but I'd held off because of other projects and the book showed no sign of being removed from stock.

Thanks, but no need. I managed to pick up both the 1.5 rulebook and armada newish on ebay a couple of days ago for less that both cost new from GW.

Why? Armada is already available as pdf on the GW site.
