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.


It was limited to 1 per customer. It didn’t mention it anywhere but you could only pick 1 in the quantity box.

I stand corrected then.

Just found out that the Ravenor omnibus is also going up for preorder tomorrow. Curious to see if that one has anything new added to it not already found in the previous omnibus or the Magos.

You could purchase multiple copies as separate transactions as they have no way of stopping that currently. Obviously using one account that would have been hard with how quickly the book sold out but multiple accounts all posting to the same address, using the same credit card open via different browsers is perfectly possible.

Absolutely MIND-BLOWN this morning to see that the 2019 Scribe Awards were announced at #SDCC2019, and that 'The Darkling Hours' won in the short story category! WHAAAAT?! #blacklibrary #warhammer40k


Fair play

Thoroughly enjoying Mr Reynold's Apocalypse novel.


Not bolter porn at all, very well thought out and structured.

First book I've seen that truly does anything with the old marine/primaris situation , the Word Bearers make sense...

... and the hidden truth.. oh boy !

Believe he's taking a break from GW stuff for a while, hope he's back soon.

While the second Siege novel still needs to be properly released, a synopsis of the third book, the First Wall, is already available:

The outer defences have fallen, and the walls of the Imperial Palace await the Traitors. Perturabo is determined to tear down the mighty edifices his brother, and bitter rival, Rogal Dorn has built – but first, he must take the Lion’s Gate Spaceport so that his heaviest weapons can land… What will happen when the irresistible force of the Iron Warriors meets the immovable object of the Imperial Fists?

Novella preview: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/07/31/coming-soon-novella-series-2/

Five 40k stories, three AoS, one Necromunda and one Horror story.

Personally looking forward to Wreck and Ruin, as the previous Adepta Sororitas stories by this author were quite good.

Looks like Amazon have put up a load of pre-orders with dates. According to them we’ll be getting the SoT book 3, The First Wall in March. There’s also a book about Cawl and Inferno 4 and 5 plus others.

Not sure what BL have announced of the above, but was good to see them all up on Amazon.

I really like the Novella format for Black Library! There's enough room to give each story some depth and to build them into good adventures, whilst not so much room that the heavy action starts to cause its own problems. I think they are really ideal, esp for fleshing out the world and getting a look at the peoples of the settings in more depth.


Short stories often feel like teasers at times and full novels can sometimes backfire when they get hooked on a specific single theme for too long.

Very much looking forward to the new Novella!

That puts the Limited Edition out in December if we stick to the 3 month exclusive window, seems slower than the last one? I got my first SoT on 23rd March, SoT 2 was 13th July?

It may depend on who is writing it. If it's AD-B.. though I think they're letting him do one of the last ones, just to be on the safe side.

Don't quite see how they're a logical "collectible" thing as I certainly only get those whose subjects interest me, not the other 8 "just to have the complete set".

I can see the collectable angle with them and its a smart subtle move by GW to casually encourage people to buy the whole set, esp if they buy the physical ones. It's a sly way to get them to read about an army or game they might not collect and play and thus introduces them to the lore. One thing GW has realised is that decent lore and stories will sell a faction to players. Heck just look how many get into Warhammer games and remain fans even long after "I've played better games". The lore, characters, world, setting, artwork - all the fluff works even if a person only engages at a casual level.

The only one from the last novella series I read was the blatant fury ripoff and it was so bad I tossed it into a corner when I was finished with it. Hopefully these ones will be better, especially the sisters story.

It's a bit unfair to judge the entire series on a single novel.

Though I do agree that Steel Daemon was a close copy of Fury.

From what I remember at the various seminars I've been to on SoT, we have:
SoT 1 - French
SoT 2 - Haley
SoT 3 - Thorpe
SoT 7 - ADB
SoT 8 - Abnett - he was given the last one as he wrote the first HH book

We don't yet know which book Wraight is doing (I'm guessing book 4) but I'm looking forward to it. As it is confirmed we have only these six authors this means two authors are doing 2 books each, but I'm pretty certain it isn't Abnett or ADB. Praying Gav doesn't get two or even worse three books.

What’s the deal with the Celestine hardback being £12.99 and not £18? I mean i’m glad of the price drop, but does that mean it’ll be the size of the Primarch series hardbacks rather than the regular hardbacks? Looks like there’s a few 40k £12.99 books coming according to Amazon as well. Have they changed their standard again?

Celestine is short from what I’ve heard, so yeah it’ll be the size of the Primarch novellas probably.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I'm glad to see they're going to do the additional Gotrek & Felix omnibus edition we never got last time around, but it would be nice to start seeing some of the less "famous" WHF stories reprinted, and it would be even nicer still if they finally gave some indication if they're ever going to use the Warhammer Chronicles branding for anything except reprints.

The rate these are continuing to come out certainly indicates there's still a market for proper-WHF fiction, it seems daft to ignore that now that AoS is settled in as its own thing and anyone who was going to be converted over to the newshiny already has been.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

If I only buy one this will be it. Glad to see Nick back at the Callis and Toll series. It’s been the highlight of AoS fiction for me. Great series and I can’t wait for the next full novel.
