Me, sounds interesting as an exercise. Wonder how it will turn out.

Also, yes. I do believe that catapult/slingshot does have stats superior to a Lasgun.

Now, inevitable snark aside, I wonder if this might be their take on 'Forces of Destiny'.

Mayhap we'll also see boardgames based on these characters?

I am definitely buying in. If it's good, great. If it's terrible, even better because it will be hilarious. This might just replace the Star Trek TNG/X-Men crossover novel Planet X as the best ridiculous book to pull out at parties.

Funny you should mention Slaanesh.

In the dim and distant, when I was still a GW Till Monkey, had a Dad in buying books to read with his kid at bedtime.

Yeah. He asked about Fulgrim.......

Suffice to say, a different title was chosen!

lol I would love a 1980s animated series of 40k.

This, Space Marine Adventures: Labyrinth of the Necrons and blitzbowl seems to be some focus from GW on the younger audience, not bad!

No. Just no. That's like having some "Marquis de Sade for children". The universe is inherently not suitable for children. Make some great sy-fy books for children,great idea, but this will either not be suitable for children or not be truthful to the universe...

"Hey, let's make some children's book about some extremely xenophobic obscurantist empire that are the good guys! That will get some good messages to those kids!"

I don't know about AoS, maybe it could work there, though.

If it actually works and provides recruitment and fiscal return, I'm all for it, it brings fresh blood for the blood god etc.

But also I would be strongly against further dilution of the lore of the core games into 'family friendly' territory.

It's a series of age appropriate books. Not an announcement that henceforth, all Black Library will be age appropriate for 8-12.

There is a huge amount of the universes yet to tell stories about.
If they avoid known lore and branch out to character-based serials, this might work.

I hate to disappoint you, but we’re never going to get a 40k movie.

The books look odd. I know when I was 12 I would have hated the cartoony covers, but I was reading Tolkien and Michael Moorcock back then.

Of course it is suitable for children. I got into warhammer as a child 30 years ago. Have never heard of animal farm or gullivers travels? There is plenty of space for discussing adult themes in books aimed at children if they wish to. Or they could ignore it. I remember playing space crusade as a kid, and it never occurred to me to think of the marines as anything other than heroes at the time.
I wonder if this will tie in to the space marine adventures game that is coming out.

I think that the 40k IP is big enough to be able to house both child friendly stories and adult ones.
