Black Library & Warhammer Digital - Calgar's Siege

Black Library said:
Marneus Augustus Calgar is the Lord of Ultramar, one of the greatest realms of the Imperium. As Chapter Master of the Ultramarines, he leads one of the most prestigious and powerful Space Marine Chapters devoted to the defence of Mankind. In him, the blood of the Primarch Guilliman runs still. When Calgar receives a summons to the world of Zalidar he is unaware, as are the world's inhabitants, that it is under attack by the Ork Warlord Brug. When his vessel is shot down, Calgar and his Honour Guard must trek across Zalidar's jungle through ork-held territory to reach the city of Zalathras. A terrible siege ensues against a vast greenskin horde. Only Calgar can hope to prevail against such odds in a brutal conflict that gives rise to a legend that will last for eternity...

One of Marneus Calgar's many feats from the Space Marines Codex involves holding a gate single-handed against a horde of orks. For the first time, get the whole story…
This story sounded great before I read the second quote, but I didn't realize it was about that famous incident. One of the most known feat of Marneus Calgar, second only to when he murdered an Avatar single-handedly. Might just be picking this one up on release day.

And in other great news, our Lord and Saviour Matt Ward has returned to Games Workshop. So hopefully we can get to see Warhammer 40k: The End Times soon, followed by Warhammer : The Age Of The Emperor.

Who doesnt wanna see the 40k version of what GW's WarhammerBall:Z turns out to be like, eh ? :D

A bit off-topic there, but fine.

The return of Matt Ward is a terrible thing yes, but fortunately 40k is popular and profitable enough that an End Times supplement would be a bad thing as it would end that profit stream. Fantasy was squatted because it wasn't selling as well anymore, while 40k is still the flagship product.

What GW have said they are going to do is take 40k from two minutes to midnight to midnight. The moment when everybody can say, yeah the apocalypse is here. And that's when it stops. It won't go any further than that.

Picked up Calgar's Siege out of boredom. Its definitely a full lenght novel, and Im about halfway through it.

So far I rate it a round 7.0 Good characterizations of Calgar and his motivations and getting into his head, as well some interesting non marine supporting characters.

But..


Will update again when I finish it.

edit 2: Finished it
