The Either. I assume a re-relase (again).


Collection of previous audios.


Novella with shorts. Unsure if new stuff or old.


Book 39 I believe. "Deals with a well prepared attack from the Alpha Legion within the sol system not long prior to the sol system invasion. Will be seeing Imperial Fists prior to the heresy as well as the first time Alpharius and Dorn meet."


Primarchs book 2. Involves the events surrounding the Wolves and the Dark Angels clashing.

The second Primarch's book sounds pretty interesting! I am fairly excited for that!

I just really wish that they would get on with storyline... They did a very good job with Path to Heaven, but I wish there were more!

The Alpha Legion. Theoretically a legion bigger than all other legions combined. They bring compliance to entire worlds with just a couple of legionaires, leaving the rest to chill in orbit. None of them ever really seemed to get into conflict and die, except that one time against the White Scars. Then they did the whole *PLOT SPOILER* thing with the *PLOT SPOILER* which gave them the ability to turn a boy into a legionaire in the space of a weekend. So there is no reason why the Alpha Legion, who don't lose warriors to combat and can make new ones easily, wouldn't have a million legionaires.

So...why didn't they just walk to Terra with their Creed-like tactical genius, pop up in the palace with a million legionaires and be all "Emperor, I'm in your base killing your dudes"?

I've written a short dialogue to help BL overcome this plot hole.


Dorn: Alpharius?
Alpharius: I am Alpharius.
Dorn: Are you?
Alpharius: I am Alpharius.
Dorn: Are you sure? I though Alpharius was taller.
Alpharius: I am...I...I think I'm Alpharius.
Dorn: You don't sound so sure.
Alpharius: I'm pretty sure I'm Alpharius. Hmm...or maybe I'm Omergon.
Dorn: Who?
Alpharius: Um...No one. Forget I said that. Umm...everyone in my legion says that they're Alpharius. Maybe one of them is Alpharius and I'm someone else. Shit.
Dorn: You look upset.
Alpharius: Umm...do you mind if I sit this one out? I have to try and find my birth certificate to check some stuff.
Dorn: No problem.

Thus explaining why the Alpha Legion didn't do much on Terra.

Accordig to Dan, and some other sources, now after the relase of Betrayal at Calth-boxset, the storyline will progress towards Terra.

Manspreading, Sanguinius? For shame.

Going to need to spend some monies on that SW book, though.

It includes all the Raven Guard story's that got released after Deliverance Lost plus a new novella,should be getting released in December.
So they are actually doing the novel they should have done in the first place instead of splitting it into 3 novellas and short stories to milk out the money. Bravo, Black Library, bravo.... *slow clap*

They are really going ham with Heresy releases this year.
To be fair, the laste 5 out of 6 books in the main series are just re-releases of previous short digital stories in anthologies.

Makes me wonder where Angels of Caliban is. Surely we should see it any time now?
It's slated for June I believe. Gav Thorpes talks about it time to time on Twitter.

Hrm, so many of the fallen primarchs are bald as an egg.
Well in Alpharius' case it makes sense that he would shave his head. Baldness is very easy to imitate.
