Warhammer Adventures: Tales for Younger Readers
The 41st Millennium and the Mortal Realms are fantastical places, ripe for adventure.
Like you, we love these worlds, and we’re always looking for new ways to share them with all kinds of fans. Today, we’re delighted to announce a new type of Warhammer fiction and 2 new series that are sure to excite young readers and parents* eager to introduce the next generation to the joy of Warhammer.
We often hear from hobbyists whose kids are eager to learn and read more about the rich worlds of Warhammer. At doubles events the world over, it’s a common sight to see parent-child teams having a blast and sharing their love of Warhammer gaming.
We wanted a way for these young Warhammer fans to explore the settings, so we’ve created a brand new fiction series:
is an exciting new range of books coming next year for boys and girls aged 8-12 years old featuring younger protagonists having thrilling adventures and facing off against dangerous enemies.
Warhammer Adventures stories are written by best selling authors with experience of writing fantastic fiction for younger readers, and will be the perfect way to introduce your children, siblings, nieces, nephews and other young fans in your life to the hobby you love – and to give them their first look at the awesome worlds of the 41st Millennium and the Mortal Realms.
The first title for Warhammer Age of Sigmar
will be Realm Quest: The City of Lifestone
by Tom Huddleston, and the first title for Warhammer 40,000
will be Warped Galaxies: Attack of the Necron
by Cavan Scott. Both Tom and Cavan have written extensively for younger readers, including collaborating on a popular Star Wars series.
We talked to Cavan about Warped Galaxies: Attack of the Necron
, and he had this to say:
“I’m delighted to be bringing the adventure, excitement and thrills of life in the 41st Millennium to a new generation. There are going to be space battles and monsters, fearsome aliens and dangerous villains. But there will also be friendship and bravery in the form of our three lead characters; ganger Talen, Martian Mekki and explorer Zelia. They already know that life in the Imperium is tough, but they never expected that it would be this challenging, that they would find themselves lost and alone. As their quest begins, they will have to quickly learn who they can trust and what risks are worth taking. Above all, they will learn that need each other to survive.”
We’ll be bringing you more information about Warhammer Adventures in the coming months, and the new Warhammer Adventures
website is live now – head over there to check it out.
*Parents understandably unsure about recommending the Horus Heresy series to their children, it being a series about 9 sons trying to tear down their father’s empire…
I.......I am utterly and totally speechless. Warhammer made kid friendly?! It utterly beggars belief. Not a shred of grimdark in this at all..
Such incredible heresy. The Emperor would weep on the Golden Throne.
