I hate this system. Release them at the same time and let the buyers decide for themselves which version they prefer the most.
Same with the limited/collector's edition stuff. A minor complaint, really.

*edit*

Also, WOW. What a difference a helm makes with the Sanguinary Priest. I love it.

Day 17: The Value of Fear.

The Story:
The Raven Guard under Corax continue to gather all leaderless loyalists to their banner, determined to take the fight to Horus and his heretics. In the industrial nightmare of the underhive, the XIXth Legion receive a lesson in terror tactics from the most unlikely of allies – the Night Lords...
Read it because:
The Night Lords are often seen as the dark mirror of the noble Raven Guard, but how much of that is true? Are these two Legions poles apart, or closer than any within the XIX would dare admit...

I have no high hopes on Gav Thorpe as I haven't been impressed by his Raven Guard-stories since Raven's Flight. This does however sound like an interesting premiss. Don't disappoint me now. I wouldn't trust many to deal with Night Lords outside of ADB.

You noticed that too huh, they do look about 100x better with those helmets. It's about time we got a badass Apothecary model.

I wonder if ADB has a contribution to the Advent-series. I would have loved to see his story be connected with the Black LEgion-series. GW last product looks like its BL-related on the marking at least.

Looks like today is an audiobook about 'Emperor Sanguinius' and Azkaellon by Andy Smillie

I wonder whose's origin it is thats mentioned in the blurb. Doesnt sound like its Azkaellon himself, but Amit perhaps since Andy also runs the Flesh Tearers?

Day 18: Herald of Sanguinius.

The Story:
Crowned as the new Emperor of Imperium Secundus, Sanguinius of the Blood Angels faces the very real threat of betrayal from within his new realm. As ever, it falls to his Sanguinary Guard to protect the primarch, and Commander Azkaellon must resort to the most dire of measures...
Listen to it because:
Not only is this story a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the Blood Angels Primarch, it also shines light on the origins of another well known character in the history of the IX Legion...

I would almost guess Amit considering the author. I'm surprised it wasn't James Swallow who wrote this, but I can imagine since his let-down with the Fear to Tread, he isn't allowed near the HH-Blood Angels. I'm carefully optimsitic about it. I didn't like the narrator that much.

Day 19: Holder of the Keys.

The Story:
One of the Fallen, the Dark Angels who betrayed their oaths and turned on their brothers, relives his past under the psychic interrogation of Chief Librarian Ezekiel. But with treachery and falsehood in his nature, nothing the Fallen says can be trusted – does Ezekiel hold the key to unlocking the truth and discovering the warrior’s role in the fall of Caliban?
Listen to it because:
Half truths, rituals of mistrust and layers of deception – it could only be a new Dark Angels story from Gav Thorpe. Is this a glimpse into the fabled fall of ancient Caliban, or just a pack of lies from a deranged madman? You'll have to listen and decide for yourself.

Day 19: Dark Angels: Librarius Conclave Formation.

Grim Psychic Might:
The Librarians of the Dark Angels possess wills of iron. They use their sinister psychic discipline of interromancy to spread fear and panic through the enemy's ranks, while simultaneously tearing free the darkest secrets of their foes. A single such psychic warrior is fearsome enough, but an entire conclave led by none other than Grand Master Ezekiel himself is a living weapon that can change the fate of a whole war zone.
A Dark Angels Formation:
This product includes the datasheet for the Dark Angels Librarius Conclave Formation, for use in your games of Warhammer 40,000.

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.

I'm sure there is no possible way they are simply too busy right now and haven't had a chance to answer me yet. NO WAI!
So, it turns out it was indeed the latter:

Hi [Venomlust]

Thank you for your email, my apologies for the delay in my reply. First Blood contains 9 missions.
Stand-up guys, those GW folks. I knew it all along! :laugh:

From user Majere613 on BOLS:

Put me in a kilt and call me a Scotsman, the Librarius Conclave is actually pretty good! You need Ezekiel and at least two other Librarians to run it, but it lets them share powers, manifest on 3+, and doubles the range of Mind Worm which suddenly starts to look quite nasty. You don't have to use them as a unit, either, though you could.
I'd prefer to avoid regurgitating the exact rules, but basically you nominate one Librarian each turn, and he gets all the powers of any other member of the formation within 12" of him, along with the other bonuses.
Here's hoping for a Cabal of Sorcerers dataslate some day for Chaos Sorcerers. I imagine every Sorcerer's attacks will get the Soul Blaze and FEAR USR:biggrin:.

*edit*

More, via Natfka:

Via an anonymous source
1 Ezekiel
2-4 Dark Angel Librarians

Choose one model in the formation, this model has access to any psychic powers known by other models in this formation within 12". Other models within 12" cannot manifest psychic powers until the end of the phase. The chosen model passes psychic tests on 3+

When using Mind Worm, models in this formation double the max range if there is at least one other model within 12"

Day 20: The Dread Sentinels of Dorn.

The Story:
Investigating the silence of a distant star fort, the Imperial Fists are attacked by the monstrous tyranids. With their ship in danger, the Space Marines enact a dangerous boarding action into the heart of the xenos bioship, seeking to rip the heart from the aliens and save the world below.
Read it because:
Usually, its hordes of tyranids that invade humanity's Space Hulks - well now the tables have turned. It's Space Marine against xenos monster in the depths of space - will the Imperial Fists succeed in their mission to destroy the hive ship, or have they just volunteered themselves as appetiser for the forthcoming invasion?

To be honest they could have skipped dread in the titel and it would have sounded way better. But with the premis of this story, it doesn't get me interested at all. Also they should perhaps have gone with a different cover since it displays Imperial Fists VS. Iron Warriors, which to me would have been way more interesting to read about.
