The Story

Amongst all of the Stormhosts, none are more vaunted than the Hammers of Sigmar. Forged first upon the Anvil of the Apotheosis, their Warrior Chambers are exemplars of Sigmar’s glory. In the shadow of the Nomad City, the mettle of the Stormbound is tested against the hordes of Khorne in the battle to sanctify the Crucible of Blood, a gateway to Chaos and madness. Within the ranks of the Stormcast Eternals, there is one who is greater than all others. He is the Celestant-Prime, Sigmar’s Storm made manifest. For centuries he slumbered, until the great hammer of Sigmar, Ghal Maraz, was returned and he rose again. But a warrior born must still be tempered, and so unto the swamps of Krahl does Sigmar cast his scion to destroy a powerful creature called the Prismatic King.
Read it because

The Celestant-Prime makes his first appearance in Black LIbrary's Warhammer Age of Sigmar fiction! And as the God-King's champion battles his foes for the first time, he tries to make sense of who he is, what his purpose is and why he's worthy of wielding the might of Ghal Maraz.


Edit: Missed the authors:
About this Edition

The Realmgate Wars: Hammers of Sigmar contains two brand new stories:

Stormcast by Darius Hinks
Scion of the Storm by C L Werner
October 2015 • Hardback, 272 pages • ISBN 9781784960735





Hrm....I have a sneaking suspicion it might be good ol'e Karl Franz returned.



Edit 2: Bought it, curious to see C. L. Werners take on AoS, he is after all one of the better writters at BL.

The C.L. Werner story involving the Celestant Prime is the smaller of the two stories in this novella, and he, I must say, have not been terribly able to inject more character into the AoS setting. Feels more same old. If youve read the previous works, then it will feel like you are reading the same things again. A disappointing effort from a writter that should have been able to do better. 4/10

Darius Hinks' story was the suprise tho, it have more character and some unexpected developments, even if it still mainly was endless battles. I rate it the better of the two stories. 7/10


I had hopes for the Celestant Prime, but so far he feels just like an oversized Stormcast Eternal with even less personality.
