Default Horus Heresy - The Solar War: The End is in Sight

With the recent news from the Horus Heresy Weekender that the Horus Heresy is shifting away from the Age of Darkness and Imperium Secundus and moving onto the Solar War, or as BL termed it The Gauntlet, it means we are approaching the end of the Horus Heresy series.

For all those people who are dying to know when it ends, I can't give an answer. But after finishing War Without End and reading the author's afterword from Laurie Goulding, written in September 2015, I can say that according to him, the writer team now knows EXACTLY how many Horus Heresy novels the series will have.

That's right, there is now a firm number.

Here is the info recap courtesy of Bell of Lost Souls;

Mars is traitor held but they are isolated and blockaded on the planet.

The re-conquest of Mars is a battle which truly matters. The Solar system is the grave yard of untold dead empires etc. Fleets destroyed / artificial worlds / Dark age of technology worlds etc. – the defence of the Solar System is difficult as enemies are within and without.

Saturn and Jupiter have lots of moons which have their own mini empires – as do the planets (case and point Furious Abyss) each has their own agenda. Loyalties are complicated.

The Hives on Terra could be sided with the traitors – not all, but some. Has to Pacify the enemies (some could be the Alpha Legion as it is their specialty).

“Can Horus attack from multiple angles?”

“Dorn is loyalist Warmaster in all but name.” He has to analyse everything. If a force goes dark have they been destroyed or have they changed loyalties?

People fleeing in to the Solar System from the greater Imperium.

Ghosts Speak Not: Traitors at the front door and people not knowing about it. All about how to be on guard against terrorist activities and espionage. Dealing with the Alpha Legion etc.”They will keep adding the pressure until Terra cracks.” Someone will attack and another attacking force will learn from their mistakes etc.

Dorn knows Horus is coming but not sure how, so has to guess Horus’ moves. Did he send ships to test defences as feints?

If Horus was killed someone else would have still tried to attack Terra.

Black Library are getting the Legions to start heading to Terra. – Path of Heaven is White Scars heading to defend Terra, and will start the lead into the Siege.

I too am Super excited from all the reveals that happened at the HH weekender, specifically the reveals of the Solar War. Really looking forward to the release of Jon French's 'Praetorian of Dorn'.

The cover for 'The Silent War' looks bloody brilliant with Severian, Sigismund and the Sigillite. Is there any news on what this is i.e. is it an Audio, Novella, Anthology or full on Novel??

I second this question.

Edit: Found them myself.

Angels of Caliban:


The Silent War:


The Path of Heaven:


My first thought: After seeing Severian on the second cover, I am convinced that if there's ever a Horus Heresy film series, Ryan Hurst should play him. Second thought: Most badass cover appearance now goes to Malcador the Sigilite, FREAKING HELL look at that staff!

Thanks for posting the pictures not sure how to post pics otherwise I would of.

Out of all these, I'm assuming that 'Path of Heaven' will be the next release after Pharos, as there is already a mock up cover done, judging by these latest pics?

According to the info we have so far, incorrect. The next HH release is The Crimson King by Graham McNeill which will show what the Thousand Sons are up to and what makes them side with Horus.

What's your source on this info? And are you sure it's Knights of Caliban and not Angels of Caliban?

Well then that's the image above. But still, where'd you get this info? I was really looking forward to the Crimson King but if what you've posted is true then it seems we may be in for a real slew of Horus Heresy.
