Well, to be fair, it's not like BL have a great track record of keeping their special editions shelf-matching in terms of size, colour, fonts & text positioning etc even within a series and ostensibly in the same format

I'd rather they just do the 8 books without a bajillion tie ins and then follow the Siege of Terra up with "The Scouring" which is a pretty good open ended area with a lot of room for stories given the scouring was a century or two in length.

The original eight planned books for the final arc already feel like it'll involve a lot of padding to fill eight books about the final stage of the Heresy.
The problem has always been that everybody wants their favourite legion covered in detail, even when that legion drops out of the main story arc. If you covered the HH from just Horus's perspective it could have been over in a fraction of the books. Instead we have books covering every legions perspective of the Heresy, even when they are far removed from the main arc. I think a proper numbering system would have helped enormously for people to avoid books outside the arcs they interested in.

The first two books have setup the third nicely, the last two will be awesome, books four to six I'm really not sure what'll be in them.

yeah, I'm hoping the siege of terra will avoid that, as awesome as I think say.. the Ultramarines are, they don't need to apper in this beyond maybe appering as the cavalry in the last book. (and it would be kinda neat to see in the last chapter the retreating traitors get chased out of the system by a strong ultramarines fleet)

Will likely now be a ninth book that’s an anthology of all of these. Also still expecting to get Horus Heresy book 55 as there are still shorts and novellas pre-siege that aren’t collected yet.

I am so far behind (Book 48, The Burden of Loyalty) that I don't think it will make any difference to me, as long as these Siege books are also published in MMPB format.

His stuff has been top notch so far IMO, really looking forwards to this.


Really impressed by his Dark Eldar/Drukhari story in Inferno #2

Either the previews had wrong dates, or they moved some (re)releases forward a bit:

Originally slated for the 14th of September..



Already removed from the preview page, but only recently released as hardback..



Also, if you haven't already, preorders are up for the softback version of HONOURBOUND, a book so good it sold out on the weekend it went on sale way back in February:

I agree about the UM, they do not need a main story arc until the prologue after the final battle between Horus and the Big E. I would expect them to get one of the new novelettes as its hinted at quite strongly in book 2 they are having an epic time limited campaign against the traps and defences left by the Traitors on their route to Terra.

Will have to pick up Rites of Passage, its one I've been looking forward to. I really enjoyed Honorbound, its a great book and I hope they manage to give it legs for a proper lengthy series.

Currently reading Requiem Infernal, really impressed so far, but think its a missed opportunity to have this not branded with the Warhammer Horror logo as it captures the creeping terror of Chaos really well.

Honourbound ended with enough material to keep things going for a potential sequel, though as is the prequel short stories and the novel itself present a nicely done self-contained arc for several of the characters involved.

Due to the heatwave I am wrapping up books I never finished or haven't found the time for in the first place. Blackstone Fortress was eh. The Hollow Mountain was damned good, can't wait for the next one to come. Right now on Legacy of Dorn.

However.. On Wings of Blood and Double Eagle going up for preorder this weekend, much excite!

Wasn;t Castle of Blood in an anthology already? Pretty sure I have read it,

"Unimaginably ancient xenos artefact somewhere on the planet, hive fleet poised above our heads, hidden 'stealer broods making an early start....and now a bloody Chaos cult crawling out of the woodwork just in case we were bored. Welcome to my world, Ciaphas."

Haven't read any Ciaphas Cain books yet but have had my eye on them for a while. I know it will mean not reading them in the proper order but should let me know if I want to then jump in from the beginning.

I had Solar War and hadn't bothered with the other HH books, not knowing if they would really bring much to the tale end of that particular series. I do have them now though.

From the New Zealand site:

Realmslayer The Complete Script Hardback
"This book contains the complete four-part script of Realmslayer, the audio drama recounting the much anticipated return of Gotrek Gurnisson and voiced by the world-famous Brian Blessed. It also includes a brand-new introduction by David Guymer, behind-the-scenes photographs, thirty-two pages of art, and a never-before-seen annotated script with insights from its author, editor and audio producer."


Now THAT is how you make a special edition of something!

The WHF ones? Can only speak for myself, but they're some of my favourites. Mostly solid adventuring fare, with a few real gems, and the only proper stinkers in the series IMO are one of the "off sequence" novels(the kinda-sorta-in Mordheim's total ruin one) and the "conclusion" duology under the End Times banner - and some folk will dismiss that conclusion given my well known opinions on the End Times and what came after, but seriously, if you find yourself enjoying the series give them a complete miss because they piss gleefully all over the characters as depicted up to to that point, they're relentlessly dour and po-faced, and make some really unnecessary choices about Gotrek's backstory and how it relates to another character. Unless you're extremely invested in the notion of following the "official" story through to AoS, it's better to leave the hows and whys of how the link up to your imagination.

The William King books are fantastic. I re-read Skavenslayer through Beastslayer every couple of years and never get tired of them.

The Nathan Long Gotrek books aren't necessarily bad, but they also don't feel like Gotrek and Felix books to me, either. I didn't read the End Times or AOS Gotrek books.

Thanks Danny76, I'll put that on the back burner then and wait until I am ready to read from the start.

I would say they are yes. They are good classic adventuring stories. Plus the way GW set them up you basically get a whistle-stop tour of the various realms and races and peoples of the Old World. It's a neat way to get an introduction to much of the core setting whilst at the same time getting an action packed adventure along the way. I've been working through them myself and have been enjoying them greatly.

Good point Overread, the "grand tour" aspect of them is also cool. On which note, keep an eye out for them reprinting the Florin & Lorenzo omnibus(or grab a secondhand copy if they don't), it follows a pair of Bretonnian mercenary chancers and has a nice look at expeditions to Lustria and also the Ogres in the east.
