I bought the soul drinkers omnibus and the 1st space wolf omnibus on the same day, and i had read them both by the week was done, (i did have a week off work, and it was nice weather so i just sat in the garden with a few corona's and chilled)

i really enjoyed them both, and now im struggling to contain all my BL books on my shelves, much to the annoyance of my girlfriend, i usually leave them in the bathroom. (gotta read while poo-ing yes?)

I got my first Black Library book in a White Dwarf... When was it now again? When the heck was 5th edition released? June 2008? Not sure, but I got it a month after 5th edition, and the book that came in the value pack was "Faith and Fire", which was, and still is, one of the better books I have read...

Soul Hunter.

Ever since I bought my copy from, I've been hooked on the BL books and have now started reading the Horus Heresy series.

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.

My first warhammer was Troll slayer, been going G&F crazy ever since.
My first 40K was Inquisitor by Ian Watson, though this book is surely dated in term of canon, its still a great trilogy.

Please don't kill me, but it was Dawn of War by C.S Goto...

But the one that really influenced me to play 40k was Strom of Iron by Graham McNeil, and i must say he has remained my favorite author since, he got me into CSM and created my love for the ad-mech with mechanicum.

"If there is any primarch who should have never been found, its Lorgar. Why? Two words. Hours Hersey"
"It was a 1......why was it a 1!"
Yes, I do play orks, yes, I do have quite a few boys on the table, and yes, it does take me a while to move a problem with that...

"Storm of Iron", by Graham McNeill was the first Black Library book I really enjoyed, with engaging characters and ideas* that are sadly not as prevalent anymore.
How remarkable- the exact same combo as myself!

Mine was Fulgrim. Loved it, and have endeavoured to buy every HH book since. Fulgrim was an amazing book imo, and the build up to istvaan was unbelievable. McNeill is a tremendous author imo, A Thousand Sons and Fulgrim where truly phenomenal. Only book that can rank on par with those two is The First Heretic by ADB, am truly looking forward to more novels in the series by these two, cant wait to read about the battle of terra!

Horus Rising, and that was back in october, since then I have read every horus heresy, considering thats 15 books thats not bad. As well as Assault on black reach by Nike Kyme, Soul Hunter by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, Angels of darkness by Gav Thorpe, as well as the first two books in eisenhorn, so I am nearly finished with that one as well.
