My first proper BL book was the Eisenhorn Omnibus - never been beat yet - in the sense of the main charactor being absolutely spot on.
Prior to that I read a very obcsure 40k one off novel that I cannot remember the title of.
It was about a planet cut off by warp storms, on which a small Imperial outpost was set up but not strong enough to take over the whole planet, on which was also a tribal community run by chaos shaman, who oddly enough were really decent people, who feared loosing their way of life to the Imperium. When it was feared that the warp storms would abate, there was battle, the tribes people used various ingenous primitive spells and creatures, such as horses that moved in and out of the warp and made effective cavalry. The tribes were portrayed as noble and decent, and the Imperium as cruel and greedy (very similar to avatar the film). Any way they got together and seemed to summon a star child (may have been a warp deamon like cherubeal), only as he grew rapidly from a childhood and became more powerful he seemed not to care for thier fate that much.
Does this story line ring any bells.
