New Cover Arts Released

A brand new set of cover art has been released. And it's pretty damn impressive, particularly the first offering which is... Abaddon: Talon of Horus.

And after Abaddon we have The Empire Omnibus, Stormcaller and The Wolf of Sigmar. All epic in my opinion. The Empire Omnibus is simple but good-looking, I particularly like the background; Stormcaller looks fierce and I like the raven and storm elements the best; and The Wolf of Sigmar is my second favourite, I love the image of the Skaven victorious. According to Amazon all four of these books are releases due out early next year, Abaddon being released there in April, TWoS in February, and both Stormcaller and TEO being released in March.

Talon of Horus is by far my most eagerly awaited book this year, and having finished Blood of Asaheim last night (which was respectable and thought-provoking in its own right) this is a godsend.

The Werner book looks nice. Tempted to give the series a crack.

Can you tell me (ASAP...) where you saw these, dude?

From what LotN wrote, I am guessing Amazon. I also did a quick look there and saw said covers.

I did not know abaddon has a small mirror in the center of his talon,

Don't forget

Path of the Archon

May not be new, but I haven't seen it posted yet.

Dear God.....That path of the Archon cover is AMAZING.

Oh and I forgot to mention in my earlier post but the cover of the Talon of Horus has got me so excited for the book!

Abaddon just looks epic, as does Stormcaller.

The new ADB novel and Path of the Archon is what I'm looking to pick up once released. Also been thinking on starting the Black Plague triliogy, looks promising!

I'm really interested in reading Aaron's Talon of Horus. Would love to see his take on the Black Legion

The Black Plague trilogy is excellent, best ToL series yet. You both should give it a try, it's a great mix of grimdark and the dark humour that Werner does very well, and of course his ability to write compelling characters that are also pure evil.

Talon of Horus and Path of the Archon are both looking great. I haven't anticipated a BL novel more than Talon of Horus in a long, long time.

For the record, that's not the final cover. It's the right artwork, though.

It'll almost definitely be The Talon of Horus.

Not Abaddon: Talon of Horus.

After that one post on your blog, I'm still hoping the series name will be The Warmaster Chronicles, or whatever it was.

Some epic covers, been wondering whats comming next as Black Library havent updated their comming soon page for ages.

Jacobite 08-18-13 10:18 PM

Anybody else think that the artist who did Path of the Archeon used Hugo Weaving as a model for it? I see Elrond in his bondage getup!
