I posted these last years so I have no problem forfilling it this year as well. :) Main-area for the digital products.

Day 1: The Horus Heresy: The Final Compliance of Sixty-Three Fourteen


The Story:
As Horus grinds the Imperium beneath his boot, emissaries from the XVIth Legion return to worlds sworn to the Warmaster during the Great Crusade to have them renew their fealty. With the Sons of Horus already at battle readiness over Sixty-Three Fourteen, a grim decision must be made...

Read it because...
Witness the brutal methods of re-conquest enacted by the Warmaster and the Traitor Legions as the war for humanity wages on. This Quick Read is a fascinating look at the changes the war has wrought in Horus and the way he is viewed by the Imperium’s defenders.

Well I'm happy that they went out with a HH-related story but I don't know. It doesn't scream "Buy me!" Might be good, but its not that appealing. Anyone who has bought it?

Day 2: Cold Roads.


The Story:
The Brazen Claws’ long penitent crusade in the Eye of Terror saw them face all manner of foes, both mortal and daemonic. As the crew of the Cold Roads battle the servants of Slaanesh, Techmarine Llir is forced to make a decision that could save the crew of the beleaguered vessel… or damn them all.

Read it because:
Any tale set in the Eye of Terror is sure to be full of sanity-bending twists and revelations, and Cold Roads is no exception. This Quick Read gives an insight into the horror faced by one particular band of haunted crusaders.

I actually think the premiss for this short could have been a damned interesting full novel. I might buy this later when they are all released.

Day 3: Fabius Bile: Repairer of Ruin.

The Story:
Lupercalia burns, the might of the Traitor Legions reducing the last redoubt of the Sons of Horus to rubble. And through the ruins strides Apothecary Fabius of the Emperor’s Children, with an army of vile genetic experiments. But what does the twisted Apothecary want in the temple to the fallen primarch Horus? And will he find it?

Listen to it because...
Fabius Bile has got to rank pretty close to the top of Warhammer 40,000's most devious and deranged villains (and that's a category with some stiff competition.) In this tale, you'll discover his motivation for what may be his most audacious plan ever - the theft of Horus's body.

This actually sounds interesting as a good supplement and bridge between the HH-Fabius done most particularly by Graham McNeill and Talon of Horus. It's great they have started to explore the Scouring Time much more these days and not just 40k typical fillers.

I just meant that they're releasing an entirely new christmas box set with all of that stuff in for christmas, which now has an entirely new set of rules to go with it.

For everyone who's bought said boxset, to make it more effective, it costs another £5, and also gets another £5 from everyone who is already has those 3 units. Depending on effectiveness, it might also generate sales of the Flyer - but I doubt it.

Ironically was the wrong word. More like in conjunction.

Day 4: Wraithflight.


The Story:
As Hive Fleet Leviathan spreads across the galaxy, the eldar of Iyanden enact a desperate plan to stop a splinter of the fleet that could spell doom for the already-ravaged craftworld. Iyanna Arienal leads an armada of sinister wraithfighters and other deadly spacecraft to aid a human fleet in battling the tyranids – but her true motives may be far more sinister.
Read it because:
Buckle up and prepare for supersonic combat as the wraith fighters of Iyanden take on a tyranid horde. This tale follows on from Guy Haley's Valedor novel, not essential reading beforehand, but awesome if you have.

Day 5: Stratagem (MP3).


The Story:
After returning from Calth and the Underworld War, Sergeant Aeonid Thiel is summoned before his primarch Roboute Guilliman. The fragile peace of Imperium Secundus is threatened by traitor warbands left behind by the Shadow Crusade, and a new order of battle must be written...
Listen to it because
One of the great things about the Horus Heresy series is learning about the characters and events that shaped the 41st Millennium, and few heroes are more pivotal than these two: Sergeant Aeonid Thiel and Rouboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines. As well as these iconic heroes, in this audio, we also see the beginnings of what will become one of the most important books in the galaxy.

I must say Censure wasn't the best audio, but far from the worst. But its sad to see that Thiel, the character I loved most from Know No Fear, is only handled by Nick Kyme.

Day 6: Yarrick: Concordat.


The Story:
Returning to his master after secondment to the Armageddon 252nd regiment on Mistral, the young Commissar Sebastian Yarrick is drawn into a Chaos plot on Aighe Mortis. Contagion is spreading throughout the populace and the Inquisition require someone with experience of fighting the archenemy. After the horrors he has faced, can Yarrick find the source of the danger and destroy it?
Read it because:
It's always great to see the origins of a character that will grow to become a legendary figure. Here, we see Commissar Yarrick years before he would grow to become the Hero of Armageddon, up against the foul machinations of Chaos. Action, intrigue, inquisitors, and heroics - this story has it all.

Day 7: Enyalius, In Memoriam.


The Story:
Marakitedes, berserker of the traitorous World Eaters, fights on the hull of an Imperial starship. Battling the vessel’s beleaguered crew and the warriors of the Ultramarines, he is fighting not just for the thrill of combat or to feed the Butcher’s Nails, but to honour his fallen brother, Enyalius, and send him to Khorne with a mighty host of skulls.
Read it because:
Even crazed Khorne Berzerkers honour their dead, they just do it in... unconventional ways. Like all rituals of the Blood God, it mostly involves death bloodshed, and decapitations.

I think this short has potential and explores something interesting. What I believe is that the World Eaters could potentially get longer stories and exploring their post-corruption by Khorne.

I just purchased and read Kranon's Helguard and Enyalius, In Memoriam. I hope comments are welcome on this thread. Otherwise, apologies for taking up space.

Kranon's Helguard:

Claimed to add additional fluff to the Crimson Slaughter story arc. There were a whole... 2 or 3 paragraphs of mediocre fluff, and one introductory "fluff" paragraph which really just listed which units are part of the formation.

Spoilers: Kranon will eventually get killed by the Dark Angels librarian. Big surprise there: Chaos loses to loyalists. Great little detail to include in a Chaos publication. Thanks, GDubs.

The formation is simply the contents of Dark Vengeance and its Crimson Slaughter boxed set expansion pack thing. Thankfully there are no wargear or unit size requirements, and for some of the units the special formation rules are halfway decent.

Over all, decent but definitely nothing special. Would not buy again or recommend spending money on it unless you're a true heretic at heart and wallet.

Enyalius, In Memoriam:

Very disappointing.

The good: The fact that it's World Eaters fluff, plus a couple of Ultramarines getting owned, which is always satisfying.

The bad: Woefully short. Shorter than a chapter in a Black Library novel, surely. To make things worse, half the content in the book is fucking Games Workshop advertisements. I just paid 2 bucks: 1 for content and 1 for the ads, apparently. It's not well written or well edited, either.

Would definitely not buy again or recommend anyone does so unless they absolutely must own stuff like this for some reason.

Comments are hugely welcome here so people can hear what they think about the stories. I was thinking about getting it, so can you give a spoiler-summary on the plot what is happening in it (the World Eater-stuff then I mean).

And weird that they kill off Kranon as he is the front-guy for Chaos at the moment.

Not entirely true. His voices in his head tell him that he will die by the librarians hand and he feels that his fate is sealed. However, in the original short story where he was prophesized to die by his hand in the future, the Crimson Slaughter was not part of the Black Crusade either. So they already altered that story.

Personally it sounds to me as if it is the voices that are playing tricks on him, since the original story where he dies in the future already has been retconned by Crimson Slaughter joining the crusade. In the dataslate it simply states that he feels his fate is sealed and that the voices in his head keeps telling him that he will die by the librarians hand - Not that it is a sure thing. Seeing as the Crimson Slaughters entire story is about them being manipulated, I would dare say that this could be another of those little tricks :)

In any case, the dataslate makes sense if you play with the Dark Vengeance set. If you don't, it is a irrelevant formation.
