Sure.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.
I emailed Black Library to ask exactly how many missions are in this thing, and they (perhaps unsurprisingly?) did not send a reply. Fuckin' shady, GDubs.Day 5: First Blood: an Altar of War Selection Pack.
War Across the Galaxy!
Upon the blazing battlefields of the 41st Millennium, warriors fight in a thousand types of brutal battle. Whether eradicating the enemy command structure, launching headlong attacks upon surprised foes, or striking the killing blow that will end the war in one fell swoop, commanders must be ready for any eventuality.
Altar of War Missions:
This product contains a selection of the missions available in the Altar of War Compendium. Including such battles as the Space Marines' Angels of Death scenario and the horrifying Tyranid Infestation, this selection pack provides missions for many of the galaxy's warring races.
That sounds like a fair and good guess. Hopefully it is. :grin: Also the Thousand Sons I also believe is John French short story which he mentioned a while back which most probably takes place prior to Sorcerer.If you look at the Advent Calender main page it actually already confirms what each story is about, at least the faction that it is about. From today;
Day 15 - Thousand Sons
Day 25 - World Eaters
Just a theory here, but according to the blog entry that was made a week or so ago, the 25th release will be a full novel. Now this calendar could only chart short stories, and that would mean that a short story and a novel will be released on Christmas Day. But I think that the calendar is telling us that the novel is a World Eaters novel, and on top of that the blog entry said that the novel was focused on a character from the 40k universe that we all know...
A Kharn novel perhaps?? I truly truly hope so. :biggrin:
