Day 1: Divine Will.


THE STORY: When the last survivor of a Chaos cult seeks to assassinate an Inquisitor at a huge public gathering, a Vindicare Assassin is the only one who might be able to stop it. There is more than just a life on the line, however, as the battle of ideologies unfolds.

This actually seems interesting.

To be honest I couldn't care less of Fantasy but I'm posting it because OCD:

READ IT BECAUSE:
It's a blood-soaked and brutal tale that pits the followers of Khorne against Sigmar's champions. Which god's servants will come put on top?

Day 3: In Wolves' Clothing


Story:
The Space Wolves hunt a dangerous foe, one who will be as much a threat to them after his death as he is with a blade...

READ IT BECAUSE:
Space Wolves hunt Lucius the Eternal, one of the galaxy's greatest swordsmen. And we all know what happens to Lucius' killer if he feels any pride or satisfaction, so the story promises to be very dark and very, very bloody...

Day 3: Warhammer Age of Sigmar Khorne Painting Guide


This Warhammer Age of Sigmar painting guide focusses on the followers of Khorne.

READ IT BECAUSE
It's the ultimate guide to painting your collection of Warhammer Age of Sigmar Chaos miniatures in the crimson and brass of the Blood God.

Is it just me who really hate the design and set-up for the new BL-website? Like it more difficult to orientate than before, especially the Advent part. I prefered before when you actually saw a calendar.

Edit: Also fun to see Lucius in a post-Heresy-story but since it's a short with Space Wolves in it, I'm highly doubtful I will get it.

THE STORY:

THE STORY:
A magically protected city of the free peoples still stands, and a Khorne champion named Gigante seeks the ultimate gift of Khorne, daemonhood, by destroying it and killing all of its defenders.

Day 6: Altar of War – Megalith.


DESCRIPTION
The path of Chaos is a long one, and ascendant warlords will stop at nothing to elevate their position above that of their rivals. Countless worlds across the galaxy are studded with great megaliths, raised by these champions of Chaos in the names of their dark patrons. Of course, should one of these idols be brought low before its completion, the gods’ favour would surely turn against its would-be gloryseeker… Battle your rivals over such a megalith as you tread the Path to Glory.

READ IT BECAUSE
If you want a new way to gain the favour of your patron god in your Path to Glory campaign, look no further! This victor of this mission will be richly rewarded with favour... but if the defender of the Megalith lets it fall, their master will look harshly upon their failure.

Day 7: Jackalwolf.


THE STORY:
Fenris. One of the mightiest worlds of the Imperium, home to the Space Wolves Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes, an impregnable bastion of humanity's might... or is it? When the treacherous Word Bearers come to Fenris, it falls to Lukas the Trickster, the so-called Jackalwolf, to defend his home world from the interlopers. Can even his vaunted cunning defeat their machinations, or will Lukas – and his Chapter – fall to the Dark Gods?

READ IT BECAUSE
It's the first Black Library tale to focus on Lukas the Trickster, and the fate of the Space Wolves Chapter lies in his hands...

Day 7: The Blasted Wastes Terrain Guide.




DESCRIPTION
Aeons of savage conflict have reduced the once lush and fertile landscape of the Blasted Wasters to a smouldering charnel ground. Scorched by howling, fire-laden winds that incinerate soil and char the very bedrock, the cruel terrain is stained blood red, lacerated with cruel fissures and littered with skulls. With this guide, you can recreate this landscape to use as the backdrop for your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

READ IT BECAUSE
If you want to theme your battlefield to the twisted plains on which Chaos warbands battle one another, or simply to make it look like a unique corner of the Mortal Realms, this guide to painting a Realm of Battle board and Chaos Dreadhold are for you.

Not sure why you'd only give Lukas the Trickster a small Advent short on not even 3 pages? Like a story like this deserves at least a 50-pages short story if not a novella.

Day 8: Daemon of the Deep


THE STORY:
The seeds of corruption lurk beneath the surface of an idylic island village, where the forces of Nurgle and Slaanesh vie for the souls of its inhabitants.
READ IT BECAUSE:
It's Chaos on Chaos action in the Mortal Realms. What happens when the servants of two of the Ruinous Powers have the same idea? Well, you're about to find out...

Day 8: Daemon Worlds Terrain Guide.


DESCRIPTION:
Warp storms like the Eye of Terror and the Maelstrom are areas where realspace and the otherworld of the warp collide. When such storms erupt, worlds caught within them are subject to horrifying changes. The surface of such planets is bathed in the stuff of Chaos, and becomes home to daemons and unimaginable horrors, not to mention packs of depraved Chaos Space Marines. And within these storms, such worlds become battlegrounds for the servants of the Dark Gods, their very surfaces shaped by the loyalties of whoever is ascendant in the wars that constantly rage upon them. This eBook provides a guide to painting your Realm of Battle board and Warhammer 40,000 scenery to represent the blasted surface of such a daemon world.

This digital product is the first thing that looks remotely interesting for me.

Day 9: Siegemaster.


THE STORY:
On the world of Harrowar, siege lines and armies span the entire planet... but after years of preparation, war is yet to begin. Warsmith Bakulos arrives to take command of the Iron Warriors and ensure that the continent-spanning siege becomes a war that he can win. But his old comrade Kurr doesn't see it that way, and Bakulos remembers the events that have led them both to this place and the final confrontation that inevitably awaits them.

READ IT BECAUSE:
It shows the fractured and broken Iron Warriors through the eyes of one of their own. Bakulos' reminisces of what once was and how things came to be are compelling, the hints of the tragic events of the Horus Heresy and afterwards intriguing... and the ending is as close to heartbreaking as Warhammer 40,000 gets.

Day 9: The Blasted Wastes I.


DESCRIPTION
Within the Mortal Realms are places so corrupted by the taint of Chaos that the landscape itself rebels against nature, twisting into something resembling the Realm of Chaos itself. Two such places are the Foundry of Rage, a continent-spanning smithy where devotees of the Blood God toil in their millions to outfit his armies, and the foetid Putrefax Sump – a great bog formed from a mass of tiny, squirming creatures and ruled over by Nurgle’s putrid hordes. This eBook provides rules for setting your battles in these blasted wastes.

READ IT BECAUSE:
Play your games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar in areas of the Mortal Realms devoted to Khorne and Nurgle, complete with all sorts of additional rules. And if you're playing a Path to Glory campaign, using the rules for the god your warband worships offers greater rewards if you win... and massive penalties if you lose. You know what they say: no risk, no reward.

Day 10: The Last Gift.




THE STORY
Tzeentchian champion Ompallious Zeyros brings the fires of change to the forces of the Plague God as he seeks vengeance against the sol-called ""Lord Rotskull"", Ephraim Bollos. But the two are more than just old foes. The last survivors of the same tribe, they are linked by a shared past... will that be enough to stay Zeyros' hand and spare Bollos' life?

READ IT BECAUSE
It's a strange and twisted tale of two friends/enemies (is "frenemies" a word?), worshippers of different gods, united by a shared past and torn apart by differing destinies.

Day 10: Daemon Worlds: The Eye of Terror.


DESCRIPTION:
The daemon worlds of the Eye of Terror are places of unbridled horror and eternal war. Across warp-blasted surfaces, legions of daemons and warbands of Chaos Space Marines wage eternal war for the amusement of their infernal masters. This eBook provides rules for setting your Warhammer 40,000 games on the Daemon worlds of the Eye of Terror.

READ IT BECAUSE
It's two brand new settings for your games of Warhammer 40,000. Each game you play will bring a suitably random effect, and when it's part of a Path to Glory campaign, there are great rewards available if you win... or tremendous punishments if you don't.

Day 11: Black Iron.


THE STORY:

He is tasked with a mission that will secure his ascension to the ranks of the Black Legion: infiltrate and capture a forge world controlled by his former brothers. What will Kallus do to meet his goals... and what will it cost him?

READ IT BECAUSE:
Daring plans, sundered brotherhoods and dark humour await in this devilish little tale that shows the cunning side of the Iron Warriors... and how they can never match up to the devastating intelligence of Abaddon the Despoiler.

Day 11: Warhammer Age of Sigmar Nurgle Painting Guide.


DESCRIPTION:
The followers of the Plague God Nurgle infest the Mortal Realms like insects infest a corpse. Their rotting, bloated flesh, corroded armour and the feculent marks of Nurgle make them distinctive and unique – and great fun to paint, This guide provides you with two ways to paint your Putrid Blightkings and other Nurgle models, making use of some of the more putrescent colours in the Citadel range.

READ IT BECAUSE:
If you want to paint your Putrid Blightkings and other Chaos models in the distinctive colours of Nurgle, this is the eBook for you. Learn to use Citadel Shades to make your models look favoured by the Plague God.

So these latest two stories about the Iron Warriors actually seems interesting.

Day 12: The Prodigal.


THE STORY:
Lykerna, the City of Light, sits in the Realm of Hysh in permanent tribute to the Tyrion, Lord of Light. But although it was once his home before the Blood God found him and twisted him to His gore-soaked service, the Chaos champion Graunos has never seen it... Forsaken and seeking revenge, he returns at the head of an army. Will he topple the gleaming towers, or will the light prevail?

READ IT BECAUSE:
It's a first glimpse at life in the Realm of Light, with hints about the nature of the god Tyrion and, of course, lots of good, old-fashioned Chaos action.

Day 12: Warhammer 40,000 Nurgle Painting Guide.


DESCRIPTION:
Nurgle is a god of life and decay, and his followers march to battle in the colours of rot and mould and slime, all the forms of life that the Plague God exalts. This painting guide provides two examples of such colour schemes. The nihilistic warband known as The Purge wear armour in sickly green and stark black, while Plague Marines couple a rancid green with corroded brass.

READ IT BECAUSE:
If manky green armour, corroded metal and rotting flesh is your thing, this is the painting guide for you. Step-by-step instructions for Plague Marines (using a classic model!) and traitors from 'The Purge' warband help you to mark out your Chaos Space Marines as followers of Nurgle.

Day 13: A Song for the Lost.


THE STORY:
In the Basilica of Himaeus the Justicar, nursing his latest beating from Bishop Eziah, young Ulix waits for Sister D’Fey to come and sing to him the only song that can ease his pain. He knows not why the other boys in the dorm hate her presence – nor does he care. When she sings the Song for the Lost, all his fears are soothed. As her voice lulls him to sleep, he cannot know that in his desire to escape the hardships of his life, he walks a path to an even darker future.

READ IT BECAUSE
It's a tale of mystery and intrigue in the heart of an Imperial temple that turns into something quite different – and very dangerous. Dark and twisted, to say anything else would give it away completely.

THE STORY:
Lord Phostrin of the Sky Shoals, a Tzeentchian warlord, has grown tired of being manipulated by sorcerers.

He has only to find it and claim it to achieve his destiny.

Day 14: Trial of Champions.


DESCRIPTION
Four rival Chaos warbands have mustered at an unhallowed battleground to take part in the mysterious Trial of Champions.

Altar of War: Trial of Champions is a mission for Warhammer 40,000 specially designed for use with the Path to Glory rules.

READ IT BECAUSE

Four players, four armies, one massive dose of tabletop carnage – and massive rewards for your Path to Glory campaign.

Day 15: Blood and Iron.


THE STORY:
Ferrix, an Iron Warriors warpsmith on the corrupted forge world of Dementius, has his sights set on the most powerful fusion of daemon and machine he has yet attempted, seeking to unleash the violence of Khorne through the ultimate weapon.

READ IT BECAUSE
It chronicles an audacious plan to install a daemonic essence in the mightiest of destructive machines: a corrupted Imperial Titan.

Day 15: Warhammer Age of Sigmar Slaanesh Painting Guide.


DESCRIPTION:
The mortal followers of Slaanesh wear a wide range of colours, from subtle and disturbingly organic hues to bright, vibrant colours that engage their dulled senses. This painting guide gives you two colour schemes for painting Chaos Warriors, one for the Clamour of Bliss warband and the other in the garish pink and gold of the Court of Vain Rapture.

READ IT BECAUSE
If bright pink is your thing, this is the painting guide for you. The followers of Slaanesh are stylish, after all...

Is it just me who find it weird that he decided to name the Iron Warrior the same name which is used in McNeills Iron Warrior-stories?

Day 16: Gorechosen.


THE STORY
In the sulphur-choked hellhole known as Scorchpit, the slaughterpriest Akhagor affirms his faith by slaying those who battle eternally in that forsaken place. To the deathbringer Vorhak, however, some opponents are worthier than others – opponents such as the mighty Stormcast Eternals against whom Korghos Khul is said to make war. The Red Path leads in many directions, but which of these two champions will the warhorde follow to ultimate glory?

READ IT BECAUSE
A Bloodbound warband's Gorechosen may follow the will of their master, but that doesn't mean that they always agree on the right path... and when you're dealing with blood-crazed lunatics, that has the potential to turn deadly.

Day 16: Warhammer 40,000 Slaanesh Painting Guide.


DESCRIPTION
For the jaded servants of the God of Pleasure, anything that can make them feel is to be savoured – and that includes bright and clashing colours. This painting guide provides two colour schemes for painting your Slaanesh Chaos Space Marines – a Noise Marine in black with some lovely purple and gold trims, and the fleshy pink and vibrant purple of the Flawless Host.
