Can't help but remember the short part of "Our Friend Promethium" in Caves of Ice right now. I wonder if they'll ever publish an Imperial children's book... The reviews certainly seem good!

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

I would have loved these as a kid. Darker fantasy like Elric of Melnibone, and other Michael Moorcock stories, hooked me into being a voracious reader. These books would have been welcome additions to what I was reading then. (Regardless of what kind of fantasy genre they end up belonging to.) I have every intention of getting these and reading them. Both by myself and with my son.

I don't see the problem. 40k is not grimdark at all. So it's hardly dumbing anything down.
And most older players don't really give a damn about the background and fluff. So it's not an issue.
You've gotta give someone the attention.
After all the London GT has taught us the modern generation GW fan has no self respect or standards.

Gonna have to disagree with pretty much everything you just said.

Mankind still stands at the brink of destruction, with the Imperium now torn in half and the forces of chaos no longer held within the eye of terror. Guilliman may be able to make a number of sweeping changes to hold the line and even push it at times, but he is still only one primarch and his forces cannot be everywhere they are needed.

Uh yeah, most older player still do care about the background and fluff. Thats why older players had a few issues with the introduction of the primaris marines at first. Thats why the events leading up to 8th edition meant a lot to some people.


Perhaps you do not care about the background and fluff, but you dont speak for all older players.

I think perhaps you need to explain this one a little.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

@darkreever - he's likely referring to the London Grand Tournament's problems (at least some of which are likely due to it being their first time). One issue was the 'terrain'... The majority of tables had 7 bits of glued-together polystyrene. Some sponsored tables looked quite a bit better, but... not a great impression. Some pics at St. Andrew's Wargaming's review.

Mind you, if he's doing the tournament scene he's likely running into people who care more about list optimizations than lore, so he's probably correct in stating those older gamers not caring about lore
