Surely the first Black Crusade already have happened?
And the 5th book looks exciting, the eldar is definitely up to no good with the shattered imperial webway. Should be a blast to read as Guy Haley did such a superb work on the pointyears with Valedor and the Last Days of Ector

1500 years after the Heresy...hasn't the 1st BC already happened?

I'm cautiously hyped for this one. Twelve actual books plus a setting with potential.

MontytheMighty 10-09-15 12:35 AM

Seems odd that the high lords would be busy politicking and infighting when not that long ago (by 40K standards), the Traitor Legions returned to visit death and destruction upon the Imperial, shattering the illusion of safety

1st BC is dated around M31.780 IIRC

Brother Lucian 10-09-15 12:37 AM

If anything, the traitor legions probably took advantage of the chaos post the Beast for their first black crusade.

Hey, this looks alright! I love the Ork v Guard fluff, and most of the books that concern those two factions are great. Hopefully this will give us a bit more to go with as well!

Would make sense.

...but it has always been mentioned that between Heresy and 1st BC...the Imperium prospered in a post-Heresy golden age

Sorry to be THAT GUY but...

781.M31 = Abaddon's 1st Black Crusade. On Uralan, the Despoiler secures the daemon weapon Drach'nyen. The First Battle of Cadia.

544.M32 = An Ork Warboss known only as the Beast forms an enormous army of Orks that rampages across the Imperium. He is eventually stopped at great cost to the Adeptus Astartes.

546.M32 = The Beheading: Grand Master of the Officio Assassinorum Drakan Vangorich has the High Lords of Terra murdered. The rogue Master of Assassins is tracked down and slain by a Space Marine strikeforce drawn from the Imperial Fists, Halo Brethren and Sable Swords. Only a single Space Marine survives the campaign.

552.M32 = The space hulk Da Iron Worm carries marauding orks across the Uhulis Sector. They destroy Battlegroup Azezel, the Fortress Worlds Armstrong and Velgagrad, and the Forge World Temaxia, leaving the Ul-Seraph Cluster defenceless. A warp storm blasts Da Iron Worm off course and into the Empyrean. Scout vessels determine that its course took it into the Dark Marches and is never heard from again.

597.M32 = 2nd Black Crusade, a failed attack on the defences of Cadia.

So there is 763 years between the 1st Black Crusade and The Beast. But lots of interesting stuff going on around the same time as The Beast!
