Taken right from the email blast I just recieved:

Free Horus Heresy story!

In other news, we’ve a free Horus Heresy story for you.

Since the Warhammer app launched on Android just two weeks ago, the number of downloads has beaten all our expectations. More than 100,000 of you are now enjoying a daily dose of Warhammer news.
To celebrate, we’ve got a new, free Horus Heresy story by Aaron Dembski-Bowden starring the Night Lords. The only way to read it will be on the app, and it’ll only be available next week.


Could this be Nightfall or a tie in?

I really doubt that it's Nightfall. They aren't going to offer a free novel anywhere outside of Christmas. But it could be a short story tie-in to it, or perhaps something to continue Curze's story on Macragge. The last we heard of him, in Deathfire, was that he was still at large.

The latest email blast had a blurb about the upcomming night lords story:
'
Aaron Dembski-Bowden's Night Lords betray their brothers on Isstvan V'

Could potentially mean when they removed their own loyalist elements.

Also interesting noting that there were quite a few loyalist Night Lords, who were eliminated prior to Istvaan, at least enough for several ships, in just one of many fleets.

I'm not too sure about that. I got the impression it was mostly AdMech and army ships they were killing off, as none of their commanders, only NL leaders, were summoned to the gathering at the start.

Also liked the line about the NLs not playing well with other elements of the Imperium being wrong, because the truth was they barely played well with each other.

Yea the Night Lords are a bit special as they haven't had a official purge of their Legion for loyalists, as they are very self-destructive and would tear themselves apart in the long run. I've liked the 2 first parts so far. Too bad ADB isn't writing a longer piece, but I have full understanding on why! This short is great so far! :)

Agreed, it was solely non Astartes parts of the fleet. Officers from all 4 companies were present at the meeting. -And it only mentioned the ships being crewed by thousands of humans.

Its interesting so far. Torn between liking the fact that its a short - as we've seen some stories incorporate 40k characters almost too much in the HH to tie in plot with both good and bad results, and hating it (being short) and wanting more. The latter will win out though.
