They are all new stories my friend!
I had a list of the stories, but I can't find it.
I know there is an extract from both Talon of Horus and Ahriman: Sorcerer.
Thanks, I best place my order then.


Well Black Library states free delivery but they are trying to charge me £4.50.. I have emailed them and await clarification on this.

So happy I did not purchase this one from eBay. I am hoping they start releasing the excess stock of their event books on the website again. I really hate having to pay ridiculous prices for these things on eBay.

I am extremely lucky to have a friend who goes to some of the events who can pick me up some stuff.
Though I am with you 100% as he doesn't go to every event, and I would really like to avoid the outrageous prices on ebay.

John French posted this as well! Two of those marks I don't recognize.

The first and last stories are Night Lords. The second story is Marines Malevolent. The third and fourth are Black Legion. The fifth is a Chaos Star marking Renegade Marines. The sixth is Scythes of the Emperor. The seventh is Iron Warriors. The eight and ninth are Thousand Sons. And the tenth is Emperor's Children.

I read all of these yesterday and each one was quite good. My favourite was, not counting the Talon of Horus or Ahriman: Sorcerer previews because they are not short stories, Bring the Night by Rob Sanders and my least favourite was Doubt Begets Heresy by Gav Thorpe. If anyone wants here is a brief summary of each story:

Bring the Night;


The Surest Weapon;


Doubt Begets Heresy;


The Blood of Sotha;


The Corpse Road;


King of Ashes;


Imperfect End;


End of Night;


On the whole quite a good anthology. I would also very much like to see a Viper Legion Space Marines Battles book that deals with what will come as a result of Sanders's story.

I would say (beside the previews), only the Night Lords- and EC-stories were interesting + somewhat King of Ashes. Thank you for the summarization. I won't be buying it, as I expect they will be available in better and perhaps a cheaper format later on. :)

I've read the first couple and my early impression is that they are not stories at all!

My 4 year old gets read bedtime stories that are longer these!

Feel a bit cheated so far.

Well, the Abaddon one is a print version of the advent calender story, so it is REALLY short.
I hope they are all longer than the 1K word short stories lol

Bought mine when I picked up the last of the holes in my HH library with Betrayer and also Arjac Rockfist. Been reading a ton of Warhammer Fantasy (painting a lot of it too), so I'm ready to start back into that universe for awhile.
