Do you mean to tell me there is someone out there who has styled himself as the emperor and hates everyone because of this??

He has done exactly that. Check his latest replies on twitter. Reading through his twitter now, I see a little light politics in favour of black lives matter.


I've seen nothing to support that.

Go onto his twitter, look at the most recent threads in his tweets and replies, he quotes most of the tweets that people found offensive including the one linked above.


I over deleted. I meant I haven't seen anything explicitly saying games workshop supports that so presently en vogue group.

That didn't take long, seeing as there isn't any. Enjoy boycotting something you enjoy on the basis of a tweet from someone with every reason to embellish the truth

Thing is neither side has to embellish, they just might be interpreting the situation differently and presenting that angle to the public. We also have no idea if there was anything else going on - eg the author might have been very hard to work with or not got on with key staff; or it might be they got on great, but really disagreed over this situation. There's so many aspects we don't know that we really can't judge either party and a proper study could show that neither party is fully in the right nor in the wrong either.

This thread is for discussing Black Library news and rumors - i.e. upcoming releases, book series, etc.

Please take the OT discussion elsewhere - to the Off Topic forum, if it's something we discuss on Dakka (i.e. not religion or politics) or to another site altogether if it's not.

Thanks all

I would suspect those who are were likely not buying things from BL/GW before anyway. Or they were right on the fence and are just using this more as an excuse to help self justify them turning away.

3for2 on audible. Eisenhorn trilogy if anyone hasn’t got it.
(And the Witcher novels and some great others too if anyone wants a browse).

so end of July/start of August is "Character Week"

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/07/15/a-characterful-celebration/

bit too long to C & P across, apologies.


The Hammer & The Eagle: Icons of Warhammer is a massive anthology focused on the characters of the Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar universes. 27 stories form an amazing introduction to the likes of Ibram Gaunt, Callus and Toll, Mephiston, Hamilcar, and many more. If you’re more visually-oriented, you’ll love Black Library: The Art of Warhammer 40,000, a celebration of two decades of incredible cover art from the 41st Millennium, packed with 248 pages of sumptuous visual treats.




As well as all of these exciting releases on the Saturday, the celebration will encompass the weeks before and after the day itself too. Across the last week of July, you’ll be able to read articles every day, right here, delving into the new stories and what the characters mean to Warhammer. We’ll also have a series of Twitch shows talking with some Black Library authors, and you’ll want to keep your eye on the Black Library Instagram page for a chance to win a copy of Bloodlines!

The Horus bookends remind one strongly of a similar release for the LOTR special edition DVDs of the Gondorian -- is that right ? --- "river statues"/The Argonaths which one then saw pop up on various gaming tables here and there for the next decade or so.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.

Chances are they'll cost more than the earth and I don't want to get rid of mine, pauper edition or not, it's signed by the author waaaaaay back when the first novel was released.

But good on AD-B for getting the fancy treatment with that trilogy.

Half tempted with the art book. I say half because honestly my budget is totally blown right now.

That's fair enough. Honestly I need to spare space on my bookshelf as I have too many books. Those are lovely though.

Can anyone recommend the inferno books at all? I remember them partially from when I was a kid, but what's their content like? Is it mainly comics? I want to know if it's worth buying a few before they disappear.

Old Inferno! prints were a mix of short stories, comics and fluff articles with art in magazine format. It mainly was about short stories though, used as an recruiting tool for BL to get new authors involved. A lot of BL's current writers got their start there penning short stories.

New Inferno! publications are full-on short story omnibuses in softback novel format, with the writers being a mix of established authors and as with the previous run, a slew of new authors making their writing debut for BL.

If you like short stories, it's well worth getting into, as there's plenty of diverse content being handled in each issue outside of 40k and AoS, like Necromunda, WarCry, Blood Bowl and sometimes even Warhammer Fantasy.

The last time they did the box sets they were £50. Which isn’t bad in the world of GW. I would hope they couldn’t increase it much more than 5 or 10 pounds at the the most.

bit of an update to the long neglected coming soon page


https://www.warhammer-community.com/blacklibrarycomingsoon/
mainly the stuff announced earlier this week

-- and no prices....

Never any prices, but the format listed is usually a good indication of the price.

I'm confused.
The Coming Soon page lists Vaults of Obsidian as pre-prder 29th August 2020.
But I'm looking at my copy on my shelf right now..?

Ohhh now Cain novel - awesome

Hoping for more like Court of the Blind King as well - nice adventure and fun "hero"

Kal Jerico written by Josh Reynolds - nice!

Dredge Runner could be interesting - almost Shadowrun like!

Do you have the hardback or paperback? Because the upcoming release is for the latter.
