I'm going to try my luck with two stories: one a procedural story where a freeguild captain must enlist the help of a Nagashite Necromancer in uncovering a series of murders and another about a knight of the order of the fly defending a settlement in the blighted duchies from an attack of forces of the Living City. Maybe think of doing that story of a heist set in Hammerhal.

Been a bit sparse new release wise, but the year is yet young.

I read Mr Reynold's Fulgrim book which was most enjoyable.

Probably the best in the Primarch series thus far IMO -- edging out the Lorgar one.

In the meantime the following interviews might be of interest :

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.
Don’t allow the cynical commercialisation of Christmas to obscure its authentic spiritual message about how weird your family is.

Path To Glory



Featured

Path To Glory
A Warhammer Age of Sigmar story

Amidst the ruins of the Lantic Empire, a few brave survivors fight to the last. With Chaos everywhere and the empress lost to a burst of lightning from the Heavens, it falls to a captain, a sorcerer and the new emperor to try and save their people.

READ IT BECAUSE
It's a sweeping epic, longer than your usual short story and packed full of action, drama and intrigue – and it's the Black Library debut for Evan Dicken.

THE STORY
The Age of Myth is over. After centuries of peace, the forces of Chaos have returned to the Mortal Realms, and Order is being overrun. Sigmar has retreated to Azyr, and those left behind make their stand in the face of the numberless hordes of the Dark Gods. In the ruins of the Lantic Empire, a few brave heroes lead their shattered armies in the defence of their once-mighty realm. With their empress dead, a captain, a sorcerer and the new emperor must make a stand and try to save their people.


It's a pity it's just a short story.

Maybe it hints at a mortal death faction, considering the POV character is VERY bitter about sigmar's retreat.

Between this story and the MP shorts, everybody seems angry at Sigmar

And you're right, IIRC the Flesh-eater Courts Battletome mentions that many Lantic survivors became ghouls roaming the ruins of the empire.

So yeah, mortal death

And apparently, in the end the Lantic Empire is just a more steampunk and golden version of the Empire / Freeguild (which is what I understood from the snippets we had in the fluff and totally fine by me).

It's also nice to have the Fyreslayers battletome reference about the Gilded Steamgird and the Lofnir Lodge.

So I have read path to glory and I have to say I enjoyed it what it shows is how people felt when sigmar shut the gates and trust me you feel for these people. If you read up on the setting such a decision is being felt even in the present with the reclaimed and not even once does sigmar explain himself. I honestly get Grungi's words in spear of shadows I can easily see why people turned to chaos or especially nagash in this case.

Also stormcast have no right to have beef with people that went over to chaos because of sigmar closing the gates to ayzr. Plus sigmar is also enabling the situation with reclaimed. I really understood why the characters were upset in this short story.

Quick question since I won't be able to buy it until month's over but:

Spoiler:
do they become ghouls in the end or just join chaos?

Spoiler:
It's chaos because it takes place in Chamon, around this time Nagash is actually busy defending what's his according to the lore. Unlike sigmar. It's just more of the fact Sigmar's decision is still being felt in the present and not even once does sigmar try to fix it. I still think this story helps shows that the setting is more grey than anything when it comes to the gods.

Oh, really nice post ! Guy seems like a true fan

I'm wondering how does BL "reach out" to ask you submissions like this.

How does it learn about you, and decide to contact you ?

Finished this over the weekend, by far my favorite Primarch book, my only complaint is that it is a little short. I would be interested in the opinions of any Iron Hands aficionados on this book on how they feel it portrays their Primarch as he comes across as Angron should have been if he'd never had the Butchers Nails implanted.

Spoliers
Spoiler:
It was also great to see the Imperium being one upped in the genetic engineering, massive overkill, pure evil stakes by the Gardinaal all for Ferrus to claw back that in the book's final act with utter destruction of the entire planet. The relationship between Fulgrim and Ferrus needs its own buddy buddy book as well.

I enjoyed the story, interesting characters and a bit of world building. Noted that

Spoiler:
The Empress was pulled away at her death by Sigmar so now a Stormcast?
The now followers of the Chaos Champion should be interesting in sequels and if they later encounter their former Empress.
Interesting that it appears that the Fyreslayers betrayed them..


Some nice touches touching on the power of the Empire and its Technology /magical stuff

"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."
Inquisitor Amberley Vail, Ordo Xenos

"I will admit that some Primachs like Russ or Horus could have a chance against an unarmed 12 year old novice but, a full Battle Sister??!! One to one? In close combat? Perhaps three Primarchs fighting together... but just one Primarch?" da001

Well, not as much as betray them, but archaon hired the Lofnir lodge with an obscene amount of Ur-Gold to have them send a masssive phalanx of Magmadroths to break that fortification line.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/01/29/black-library-celebration-coming-soongw-homepage-post-3/


On Saturday 24th February, Games Workshop and Warhammer stores around the world will be holding a celebration of all things Black Library – and we have the low-down.

The event will be in part a celebration of 20 years of fantastic adrenaline-fuelled fiction from the worlds of Warhammer, and in part because the brand new Inquisitor Eisenhorn novel, The Magos is released on that day. And stores will have a host of special merchandise to commemorate both of these things. First, very excitingly, will be an exclusive resin Citadel miniature of Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn himself. This model is based on the classic Clint Langley artwork depicting the Inquisitor in his younger days, and is a perfect collector’s piece… and also a great addition to any army of the Imperium, as he will include rules in the box! Yes, you’ll be able to use Inquisitor Eisenhorn to bring ruin to your foes on the tabletop. Pick him up from the 24th in-store or online.

But what about goods celebrating Black Library’s anniversary? There will be plenty, and we don’t want to give everything away just now, but remember a while back when you guys voted on which out of print books you’d like us to bring back? Keep an eye out for all the Black Library Celebration news, right here, very soon.



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.

Eisenhorn model, a box of book covers released on postcards in a fancy box and a blank journal released this month to celebrate 20 years of BL. I’m hoping and kind of expecting a suprise book release too. Maybe Ravenor box set?

Eisenhorn model looks cool, I will get it if I have a chance but will pass swiftly on the notebook and postcards.

"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
