THE STORY
As sanctioned executioners, the Wolves of Fenris were tasked with rooting out treachery at the heart of the Legions... but would they be capable of carrying out a death sentence upon one of the Emperor’s own sons? Now, a stolen Alpha Legion dropship crashes on the primitive oceanic world of Pelago, bringing news of a terrible war that has erupted out among the stars. Will the pursuing traitors, thirsty for vengeance, reach the lone survivor before his own battle-brothers can?

ABOUT THE AUDIO
A Horus Heresy audio drama written by Guy Haley.Running time approx 35 mins.

January 2014 • ISBN 9781782512493



Very impressed by Mr. haley's writings, both in the 40k setting and in his own settings/worlds too.

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.
instead of being restricted, as they are currently, to teaching things assumed to be vaguely accurate, they will be free to teach stuff like ‘a fridge is a kind of aeroplane’ and ‘The Second World War started because Hitler wanted to marry Judi Dench but she wouldn’t let him’

Just finished the HH short story Wolf of Ash and Fire that you get as a free bonus for ordering Macragge's Honour. It is set before Ullanor and covers the Emperor beating the snot out of the Greenskins, nice for him to actually feature in a battle for a change and its quite good despite being very short. If they meant this to showcase their short stories to customers who haven't tried them before then it has backfired in my case as no way would I pay for a short story that short, I'll be waiting for the compilations.

THE STORY
The battle for Rynn’s World is won and the Crimson Fists are reclaiming their home world, but the orks who invaded the planet are difficult to eradicate. Pockets of them remain in the hills and homesteads, a threat to the people the Crimson Fists are sworn to protect. When they find a deserted farm, Sergeant Grimm and his squad suspect that there is more to the silence than meets the eye – but are the greenskins cunning enough to lay a trap for the Space Marines?

Hi folks,

Happy Monday!

To celebrate our Facebook page reaching 45,000 Likes, (and by the way, if you haven’t Liked us, why not?) here is a sneak peek at the next novel from Rob Sanders:



Featuring Chaos, the Empire, dark elves, Valkia, Be’lakor, dragons – yes, plural! – and, of course, Archaon himself, this is the full story of the Everchosen (well, the first half of the full story) – starting long before he was the big bad guy we all know him as now.

It's about the man he was before he started on his path to damnation, and it shows how he was turned from the righteous path of Sigmar's worship and crafted into an instrument of the Ruinous Powers.

Archaon: Everchosen is released later in the year and will be one of the exclusive pre-release titles at Black Library Live on Saturday March 1st. Tickets are still available, but hurry up, as there are only a few left.

Rob Sanders will also be there to answer your questions about the book and will be happy to sign your copy too.

I've got two or three on my bedside table that I haven't touched in months so I know that feeling all too well but I recently picked up the first Ghosts book and am really enjoying another run through those.

THE STORY
The daemon prince Mortarion has emerged from the Eye of Terror at the head of a vast plague-horde, intent upon the corruption of the Imperium he once served. Under Supreme Grand Master Geronitan, the Grey Knights finally meet the daemon army in battle on the plains of Kornovin – a mobilisation of the Chapter the likes of which few have ever seen. Kaldor Draigo and his fellow brotherhood masters lead from the front, trusting to their lord’s secretive plan... until Geronitan is unexpectedly struck down by the Death Lord. With the eyes of the Inquisition upon them and the arcane path of destiny broken forever, the Grey Knights must cast aside thoughts of anything so petty as revenge. The Supreme Grand Master’s successor must be named, or all may be lost.

Hey folks,

We just got a brand new piece of art in the office from Neil Roberts.

Check this out:

Those of you who have listened to Grey Angel will probably have guessed who this Knight Errant is and on which world he is sneaking around. But if you haven’t, I won’t spoil it for you!

This awesome UK weather-inspired piece will be the cover art for Horus Heresy: The Scripts II, featuring the scripts from several audio dramas, including The Sigillite, Honour to the Dead and Burden of Duty.

It will be released exclusively through blacklibrary.com in April.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already, take a look at the first Scripts book here.

– Adam, hoping the weather will get better soon

The HH MMPB have been ticking out at the same rate as their HB counterparts, just several months behind.

I got Mark Of Calth (the first HH book I haven't dropped whatever I was reading as soon as it arrived in order to start, such has my enthusiasm waned) a few weeks ago, I think Vulkan Lives is next, in a month or two?

EDIT - Yep, Vulkan Lives end of May, Unremembered Empire later in the year.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Master-Sanctity-Legacy-Caliban-Thorpe/dp/1849705186/ref=pd_sim_b_15



The Legacy of Caliban echoes down through the ages, and the secretive mission of the Dark Angels Space Marines continues. Interrogator-Chaplain Asmodai sees treachery and deceit everywhere he turns - while this serves him well in his hunt for the Fallen, it also strains the Chapter's relations with their Imperial allies. With their true quarry now seemingly within their grasp, Brothers Annael and Telemenus find themselves at the forefront of a new operation that could shake the Imperium itself to its very core.


Nice looking cover, been enjoying this series.

THE STORY
Nurgle’s Gift
On a world wracked by plague, new arrivals bring hope to the beleaguered populace. When the Sky Warriors emerge from the venomous mist, they come with promises of salvation from the ailments that blight the people. But a sacrifice will be required… Will the price be too high, or will the villagers be willing to give up one of their own to the tainted Space Marines?

The Tallyman
Stranded above a daemon world in the heart of the Eye of Terror, Marduk and the 34th Host of the Word Bearers venture onto the tainted planet in search of missing legionaries. But when they encounter the daemonic servant of the Plague God known as the Tallyman, they realise that their desire to save their brothers may doom them all…

ABOUT THE BOOK
This ebook contains two Warhammer 40,000 short stories dedicated to Nurgle, written by Guy Haley, and Anthony Reynolds



The latter is the continuation of Mr. Reynolds' WB story, continuing after their last appearance in a collection one assumes ?

New Horus Heresy Cover Art


Wow!

Space Marines versus dinosaurs...

Now, Space Marines don’t run away from much, but when your opponent is a bipedal primordial giant, a ‘tactical withdrawal’ is acceptable:

And if all this action wasn’t enough, there’s a whole load of bad stuff raining from the skies onto this planet. I am not going here for a holiday!

This will be the cover for David Annandale’s debut Horus Heresy novel, focusing on the Shattered Legions in the wake of Isstvan V. I really enjoyed David’s work with Yarrick and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does with his first Horus Heresy novel.

The Damnation of Pythos will be released in July 2014.

And if you can’t wait that long to read about dinosaurs grappling with Space Marines, check out Promethean Sun, by Nick Kyme, and Flesh of Cretacia, by Andy Smillie.
