Regular hardback edition will go up for sale in October, so just a three month wait until then.

The part where kharn gets the nails implanted is a very nice touch. Took me a couple of seconds to figure out what was going on.. But I won't ruin it for you.


Yeah, I was wondering about that. At first, I thought I had a printing error in the book with art missing. It was a good book overall but I felt like it backtracked the character development that Kharn *started* with years ago in the earlier BL novels as the voice of reason in the legion. The suddeness of the turn of events in the last act surprised me as well. YMMV.

That world eaters logo on the cover is delightful.. Almost enough to make me want to buy it. But I don't have the patience to sit in a refresh queue. Maybe I'll boot up the site at 10am on sat and see how the dice land.

Will definitely be sat hitting refresh on Saturday morning, got the first special edition and obviously would like the full set, so would be very annoying to miss out on one (I managed to miss two out of the twelve Primarch novels released so far, which is annoying). I think Saturday mornings every now and again are going to get more tense as time goes on!

I don't think I'll let it bother me that much. I don't like queuing in real life so I won't be queuing online either.

Problem, not solution!

I’ll probably pick these all up as regular hardbacks - been waiting for the end of this series for a long time now, don’t want to wait even longer for the paperbacks!

Think dubs are limiting them to one per customer so you'd better set up some extra bank accounts or get family to purchase too.

Hmm, had to click a link from the actual black library site to find it. Refreshing the GW site proper didnt show it for me.

[edit] the black library section of the GW site now has it listed as well [/edit]

Standard. I don't understand why they make then limited edition. They'd make much more profit having them available for a longer period. But gw marketing seems obsessed with limited edition, and we seem to lap it up, for some reason.

I suppose one factor that limits numbers is that they’re all signed by the author. Personally speaking, that doesn’t make them any more appealing to me. I came very close to buying the Solar War limited edition but decided against it after realising that there could be a chance that I miss one of the books during its 8 (?) novel run. Part of me would rather own none of them than only 7 of them. It’s the same reason why I’ll never buy any more Horus Heresy black books, despite already owning books 1 to 3. It’s no longer possible to buy books 4,5 and 6 in their original format, so I’m not interested in books 7 or 8 either.

Maybe I’m just a bit weird?

If the Siege of Terra was available in the limited format, unsigned and still at that premium price of £50 each, and in far greater numbers, I’d have had no issues in buying them to look good on a shelf ... and I’d have still bought the audiobooks, as I intend to once the series is complete, as I’m dyslexic and struggle to read anything more than one page long

It's even worse for art and lore books like the Eldar ones done a year or so back and the limited reprint of Libre Chaotica. Those are not just short runs but true limited editions every time. At least with a story whilst the limited edition is limited you can still get the whole book almost whenever you want once it release as few months/weeks later.

I really hate that the art books in particular are such short runs; there's a lot I'd get out of curiosity but I don't often have the money in the week it goes on sale. Heck I nearly missed the Libre!

I tend to feel the same way. I've managed to buy both limited editions so far, but if I miss any of the next six, I'll sell off the ones I already have and buy the eventual paperbacks instead. Can't stand mismatched sets.

They're late, but there's a preorder article up for the book..

Also, a low-rez map:



I'll be keeping an eye out on the official website for a nice and big one like they did with the Solar War.

The audio drama was originally a three-part series released during the week of Horror or whatever it was called. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out. Have high hopes, aside from a shoddy Necromunda short story she has yet to disappoint in my opinion and that she keeps on receiving kudos by other authors for helping out / her writing style is also nice.

Getting an Alien vibe from the cover art, though we already had an Alien themed story in the first Horror book.

Am I remembering it wrong? I thought the Imperial Palace was more like a Dredd style megacity. That seems kind of small unless that it the entire Himalayan mountain range.

Managed to get SoT book 2, but as I was unavailable on Saturday (on a plane) I had to ask a favour of a friend to get it for me. I can see this being a long hard slog to get the full set. The Primarch books do not sell out anywhere near as quickly, although Horus might end up being different.

I wish they had come up with a better system from the start for the sale of the limited editions for SoT as there is nothing I dislike more about the entire hobby than the touts who sell on the books and event tickets for massive profit.

Only thing we can do, seeing as punching people in the throat over TCP/IP is still nothing but a concept that people refuse to look into, is to contact GW about it.

IIRC, this one was not limited to one per customer, at least the store entry made no mention of this as far as I could see. So sadly, some fething scumbag pieces of gak have once again robbed others of something for a normal price. Or at least, not what they are asking for it now, having just checked ebay.. donkey-caves.

In slightly better news, coming up for preorder next weekend:




Automatically Appended Next Post:
This pleases me: https://www.blacklibrary.com/all-products/the-darkling-hours-2019.html

A powerful psyker lurks in Termina – and it's up to Commissar Severina Raine and her Antari Rifles to root out the witch and secure the city.

The war against the Sighted has come to the city of Termina, and Commissar Severina Raine and her Antari Rifles are assigned a most important mission. Among the enemy assets is a powerful psyker, and until it is defeated, no attempt to retake the howling city for the Imperium can hope to succeed. Can Raine and her warriors succeed against the odds, even as the omens point to a grisly fate?

Written by Rachel Harrison
Quite chuffed with this release, it's the only short story I hadn't read yet in this series and was an event exclusive before, so the completionist in me is going.

Highly recommend The Red Feast for anyone out there looking a more traditional fantasy story. It’s billed as book one of The Khul and I hope there are many more. Great to see fiction like this still being written now we are in the age of Sigmar.
