Default Iron Warrior novels

So I've taken an interest in Iron Warriors lately for my Chaos warband and I'm looking to purchase some novels, namely Endeavor of Will and Siege of Castellax, but I'm uncertain if I should spend money on them. How well are they generally regarded and are they generally worth the purchase for Chaos fans?

I own both(though I own Endeavor of Will in the anthology) and both are very worth the price.
In my opinion, if more people buy something(such as Iron Warriors novels/stories) then we will get more because it shows that the consumers have interest in such things.
So yes, if you like the IW, buy them.

I would also recommend the Iron Warriors omnibus. That is an amazing read.

All those novels peeps have mentioned are good. One of the Ultramarines novels focuses upon the Iron Warriors... I forget which one though...

Current PhD student at Exeter University - "For the Glory - The Development of Battlefield tactics throughout the Ancient World."

Moments that amused me; Sevatar Prince of Crows

(When running into Alastor Rushal "The Raven" on the Invincible Reason)
"You won't believe how I got here."

(When told that a Commodore has survived an ambush and is now the highest ranking survivor.)
"That makes him the new fleet admiral. Offer him my insincere congratulations on a rank he earned purely by being the last naval officer standing. But what's the bad news?"

I've already read McNeill's works. Suffice to say I'm not a fan of him.
