Warzone Fenris: ‘Wolf Trap’ Arrives

black-library

The next chapter of the Legacy of Russ series is now available – the battle with Chaos continues!

The most tragic of events often come from misunderstandings, and this looks like it’s going to lead to a pretty massive tragedy indeed.

Wolf Trap – $4.99

Things take a sinister turn in the Fenris system, as Wolf Lord Egil Iron Wolf swears vengeance upon the Dark Angels for their actions in defense of Midgardia…

BLPROCESSED-Wolf Trap Cover

All across the Fenris system, the Space Wolves battle to drive back the forces of Chaos. Though an entire Imperial crusade fleet has arrived to aid the fight, their motives and actions are at odds with the Space Wolves’ own, and tempers are running high. When Egil Iron Wolf and his company emerge from the underworld to find Midgardia a world of ash, and all its people dead, they swear a terrible vengeance on the Dark Angels who instigated the attack.

~Now if only we can get the sequel to the Wulfen book to show up…

 

  • Seienchin

    Well at least Space Orks dont attack them with their deathstar… I mean attack moon… What happend to 40k man? I know I am a hypocrite hating on those STUPID attack moons while also hating on space marine brother conflict number 195 (if you exclude horus heresy…) . I hope that all of these stories actually lead to something. I mean the warhammer 40k end times seem to be so close… Something is about to happen in the warhammer 40k universe…

    • ZeeLobby

      They’re definitely going to AoS it, whether we want them to or not. They don’t seem to realize that it’s the rules and imbalance that are driving people away from the game, not the story (which is set up perfectly as is). The same could honestly be said for WFB, with horde formation sizes and spells that removed entire armies.

      • wibbling

        No, it is not the rules nor your misconception over ‘balance’. It’s the cost of the hobby, a streteched economy and vastly more competition.

        • OolonColluphid

          Because MunchkinDar, Tau/Farsight Enclaves not being reduced to allies of convenience and free transports are “balanced”.

        • ZeeLobby

          You’re right, it’s overcosted, and there’s better alternatives, that have better rules. “stretched economy” is a weak argument, as other systems have been growing while GW sales have been falling.

          We’ve even had rumors of the ruleset changing. What justification would there be for that if it’s “not the rules”? Internal rumors of the ruleset becoming cumbersome have also surfaced. It’s just crazy that you can be blind to any of this.

      • OolonColluphid

        If they do. Players will leave in drove and those already playing Horus Heresy will convert their models so they play a superior version of 40k instead. It would pretty much reduce the base by more then half.

    • euansmith

      I think 40k was conceived as a setting rather than a story; so it has been 11:59 for 10,000 years, and might not change for another 10,000 years. Mankind is on the ropes, but can still take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’.

      The area covered by the setting is vast, a million star systems scattered across a huge swath of the Galaxy (leaving billions of intervening star systems unclaimed), and the cast numbers in the trillions.

      Fenris could fall and the Space Wolves and Dark Angels be destroyed without having any real impact on the background (though it would be as though a thousand Space Marine fans cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced).

      The only character who is pivotal to the setting is the Emperor, so the only way to alter the background is to have him wake up or finally die. If he dies, the Imperium will most likely collapse as its distant worlds are isolated without the Astronomican. If he wakes, it will probably be to an all out war against the Ruinous Powers; the Age of Empora!

      Since GW exists to sell minis, the only two out comes I can see are, maintaining the status quo, or going full Sigmar and redoing large parts of the range. The first option minimises the risk and cost to GW. The second option is risky, but could drive new sales, as Marines go true-scale and everything get ramped up to 11.

      • Mr_Pickles

        Also, it would help GW to destroy over 1/2 their range of old models. “Why make them if we no longer feature/advertise them in the game?”

  • OolonColluphid

    Looking forward to more Space Sue Furries and out of character Responsible Marine Grey Knights. Midgardia getting nuked was well deserved though.

    • Painjunky

      I miss space Vikings too. Such a cool concept that has been so bastardised that its unrecognizable. So sad.

      • LordKrungharr

        But if they were Space Vikings they’d need tiny floating transports that could take out of nowhere at high speed. Dark Eldar already fill that role. They’re more like Space Mongols, that ride horse sized wolves.

        • Mr_Pickles

          If “Thunderwolves” were an elite Wolf Guard Biker unit, that’d be cool too. If Space Wolves got the Logan Grimnar Skimmer Chariots in place of normal Land Speeders and can hold 5 models, then that would be fine. Leave Mark of the Wulfen as a model “upgrade” and/or have a single unit of Wolfen that are tied to the Wolf Priest (Chaplin HQ choice) Then their fluff would still be cool but also not Space Marines riding Space Marines…

        • OolonColluphid

          Space Mongols are the White Scars. Fenrisian Wolfs exist because they other wouldn’t have proper Astartes bikers.

    • benn grimm

      If they pay monkeys peanuts, is it any wonder they smear excrement on the pages?

  • benn grimm

    This is the sequal: a sequal in 8 parts. All of which will be terribad id imagine.

    • wibbling

      It’s sequel. , and if you’d imagine it to be poor, it will be. Thankfully, capable, professional writers produce the Workshop universe.

      • ZeeLobby

        LoL, ranging from terribad to better than average.

      • benn grimm

        Good catch, my spellchecker failed me there. Lol to your second point, the hacks they have contributing nowadays are worse than theyve ever been.

      • Xodis

        Unfortunately “Good” is subjective when it comes to creativity. Some of the best novels were hated when they were released, and some of the best novels are hated still by some who read them. There are also those who will hate anything new because its not the way it was.

    • Robbie MacNiven

      Well, I tried.

      • benn grimm

        And they do say god loves a trier… 😉 Its not to my taste, but fair play, I was basing my assumption on the recent output (perhaps wrongly), nothing personal. Congrats on getting the gig, I hope it leads on to bigger and better things for you.

        • Robbie MacNiven

          Don’t worry about it, people have no business being a writer if they don’t have a bit of a thick skin 🙂

      • Val Heffelfinger

        Wait, actual human beings are behind the things internet commentators poop on all day? Do they know about this?

  • euansmith

    Its a Wolf Trap, Njali, and you’ve bin caught!

  • Orodruin

    So have the daemons inflicted any real damage, or is it all at the hands of the Dark Angels?

    • OolonColluphid

      It was the Alpha Legion who led the Chaos Side.

  • Xodis

    Settings can advance, because settings always advance in terms of story. Its not always for the better, but it has the potential to be.
    -WM/H is a setting that advances, very well I might add.
    -Star Wars is a setting that has advanced many times until the Disney reset, where its now advancing in a different way.
    -Star Trek advanced, has been rebooted, and will continue to advance more.
    -D&D, Shadowrun, pretty much all RPGs, video games, etc…
    Even 30K is a different setting than 40K that continues to advance, although we know what its advancing too.
