Default The Dark Hunters by Paul Kearney

http://www.blacklibrary.com/warhamme...-hardback.html

The Story

The Space Marines of the Dark Hunters, descendants of the White Scars and their savage primarch Jaghatai Khan, are called to battle on the world of Ras Hanem, a world they thought long since liberated from the grip of heresy and returned to Imperial rule. Many years ago, the Dark Hunters defeated the traitor warband known as the Punishers on that world, in a conflict that left deep wounds in the Chapter. But now the Punishers have returned, seeking vengeance upon their would-be destroyers. Captain Jonah Kerne of Mortai Company is sent to annihiliate the traitors once and for all, but the cost of victory may be too high for him to bearÖ
Read it because

Itís all action, all the time. Definitely the underdog, the Dark Hunter Space Marines face off against the sprawling forces of the Punishers horde Ė old enemies who only want revenge. The Dark Hunters donít have all the gear, but youíll admire their mad ambush skills and stubborn tenacity.




Looks quite promising, as I enjoyed the short stories the Dark Hunters so far have starred in. So im looking forward to read a full book about them.



Always pleasing to see non-First Founding chapters getting fleshed out. Will be available by feb 6.

What do you mean by them not having all the gear?

As in they're poor resource wise as a chapter?

Can't wait for this. I loved The Last Detail by Paul Kearney, and I look forward to seeing what he can do with the Dark Hunters with a full novel.

It's a web description. Who the hell cares. Read the short story I mentioned and you'll want to buy it.

I think because of their mistrust of machines and bad relations with the Mechanicus it means they aren't equipped as well as other chapters

JP's reason is likely right. The Dark Hunters don't trust the Mechanicus very much, because their very first campaign as a Chapter was The Occlusiad, which left them with a deep distrust of machines in general.

They probably have what they started with but don't get re-armed and re-supplied by the Mechanium any more, so they will be short of vehicles etc.
