I like my characters flawed, like Agusto, who still has redeeming qualities, but in my eyes Noctis is an donkey-cave trying too hard to atone for how much of a witch he is.

I still need to listen to the audio version of Flesh and Steel, maybe that'll sway me, I really enjoyed Bloodlines, both in dead tree format and audio book, though again, having a BL narrator do all the swears, was a bit jarring.

Kinda wish we'd get an ETA on more audio dramas though, have been missing those over these last two years. Part four of Agent of the Throne when already?!

Did they maybe record the dialogue from audio dramas with the cast together in the same place so it's been a Covid thing?

I've just bought this, I've never read a horror novel (of any kind) so not sure how it can work but I'll move onto this when I'v finished the first Gaunts Ghost omnibus.

I liked Noctis too, I read it not listened, but it was my first GW crime novel so maybe it being a regualr(ish) guy in 40k swayed me. I'd def like more of all the characters we've seen, inc some of the characters from some of the short stories.

Approx armies
9000pts AdMech (Main army)
7000pts Black Templars (original army)
3500pts Death Guard (lazy side project)
2000pts Imperial Knights (extension of AdMech)
2500pts Necrons (conversion side project)
2000pts Harlequins (fun side project)

Classic Inferno! 46
Get your fix of Warhammer fiction as Classic Inferno! 46 returns from the murky mists of Black Library’s past, featuring stories by Dan Abnett, CS Goto, Nathan Long, and CL Werner. Inferno! was the first ever publication to emerge from the nascent Black Library, and this reissue is a great way for collectors to add a classic edition to their shelves.

Best of all, it’ll be available to order via Print on Demand straight away on Saturday.




Bit annoying that it's on its own, don't know what else to pad the order out with, seeing as my GW store is awfully flakey when it comes with mail orders and their actual operating days these days.

Was just coming here to post that - its the final issue of the whole run that GW started a while back on reprints - fantastic to get the final issue! I was kind of surprised that they did a regular 10 issue order and didn't just bump it up to 11 last time. So great to get the last of the last of classic Inferno!

Still a stupid choice of theirs to not include it with the last batch they did a year ago.

But also glad to finally have the entire reprint on my shelf sometime soon. Next question is, Warhammer Monthly reprint when?

Just think. Whole generations of 40K fans have never been aware of OBVIOUS TACTICS!

Obvious Tactics ran in Inferno! "thankfully". And gakballs, first comic or not, it was still pretty awful in my eyes.

WHM did have gems like..? I don't know, they never really sold those around here, I remember there being one about a squad of Catachans going AWOL and hunting for a treasure or something.

Finished Catachan Devil. There were some moments (mainly from Ork perspective) but overall you will lose nothing by skipping it. Another forgettable IG novel.

Daemonifuge, Darkblade, Uli and Marqand(set in Mordheim) and Bloodquest.

Titan was decent.

They had a What If type edition where Ephrael Stern was a Sister of Sigmar, Helbrandt Grimm was an Inquisitor and so on.

I've had a hard time getting through every 40k-related book that wasn't part of the main HH plot. They have a hard time coming up with good characters or memorable stories outside of that.

Seeing how the newest dawn of fire book is coming soon, I’m curious: is wolftime worth it if you don’t care about or like space wolves? I avenging son and gate of bones but they seemed pretty independent story wise.

Finished Da Gobbo's Revenge (the title has more than the obvious meaning ). Mike Brooks proves once again that he is the best BL writer when it comes to greenskins. Hopefully there will be more grot books in the future.

Yeah, most of 40k books are either mediocre or bad but there are some that I really liked (Titanicus or Dead Man Walking for example). Also even if HH is generally better there are still some books that are pretty bad too (The Damnation of Pythos for example).

It's largely unrelated. There is a lot of Space Wolf stuff there, and toward the latter half of the book I took to skipping the alternating chapters that featured the vikings!
Once I finished I passed it off to my Space Wolf-loving friend, just another case of not every story being for everyone.

Given the characters returning for book 4 are the ones from book 1, by the same author, I'm thinking these are more like a loosely linked collection of series rather than a single ongoing narrative, taking it in turns for the spotlight.

Quite surprised they chucked Deathwing in there. But as is, have read most, if not all of these in dead tree format at some point, newer books aside, when the Astartes burnout started to set in for me. Spear of the Emperor is good though, not at all what I expected.

Any indication about how much the new Adepta Soritias art print releasing tommorow will be? i wonder if that sort of thing is going to become more common, it seems quite random - it's not like there's been a significant recent release for them or something to celebrate with a print.

Catachan Devil is on my to do list.
Just did a few more Primarch books. Fulgrim, Khan, Lorgar and Ferrus. All interesting,some a lot more than others. But none were a waste.

Now about to start Dark Imperium.

So I’m thinking of reading all the main Primaris onwards books.

I’m thinking it’s;
Dark Imperium, Plague War, Godblight.
Indomitus.

Then move on to
Avenging Son, Gate Of Bones, Wolftime

Need to get into the Dawn of Fire series properly one of these days, Avenging Son didn't exactly sell me on the premises, though this may be Astartes burnout on my end.

I did finally get around to wrapping up Grim Repast, it was okay.

Am looking forward to hopefully securing a copy of Danie Ware's novel next Saturday, been looking forward to that one for a while now, her Bloody Rose stuff is good.

Grim Repast yeah.

And on Dawn of Fire I’m not sure how good they’ll be. But they seem to be the next main series of books in the setting I guess?
Indomitus never got a follow on or anything, so that’s the 9th Ed story path perhaps.

Gate of Bones is really good. It's from Human, Custodes, Word Bearer, and Iron Warrior perspectives so you get some excellent contrasting viewpoints.
Wolftime is just about the Wolves. It's fine but it was such a cookie-cutter story.
