Part 8 of the Legacy of Russ series

It’s the final battle, the beginning of the end… or so the Space Wolves hope. But when treachery strikes, the sons of Russ discover that their true battle hasn’t even begun.

THE STORY
Just as the Space Wolves’ battle against Chaos seems to be taking a turn in their favour, discord strikes the heart of the Imperial forces. In the crusade fleet, accusations of treachery fly – just how far has the dark touch of Chaos reached, and can anyone be trusted? The Space Marines are forced to put their differences aside and confront the true villain – whatever the cost, this is the only way to achieve victory over the forces of darkness.

Written by Robbie MacNiven

After seven previous instalments of Fenrisian action and Chaotic intrigue, it all comes down to this: someone in the Imperial battleforce is a traitor. But who? And who’s really behind the cataclysm that has beset the Space Wolves? Only one way to find out…

Fenris is besieged, and the Space Wolves – with some unlikely allies – battle daemonic invaders across the system. When contact is lost with the Chapter Master, are the Space Wolves doomed to destruction?

THE STORY
The Fenris system, home of the savage and feral Space Wolves Chapter, is overrun by the forces of Chaos. On planets and moons armies of daemons manifest to enact a campaign of slaughter, and the Wolves are forced to defend themselves on all fronts. As the fighting escalates, all contact with Logan Grimnar is lost. Can the Space Wolves find their missing Chapter Master, or is he dead, as the daemons claim? And if he has fallen, what will stand between the Space Wolves and absolute destruction?

Tybalt Marr, Captain of the Sons of Horus, swears to bring down a thorn in the Warmaster’s side: the commander of the so-called “Shattered Legions”, the infamous Shadrak Meduson.

THE STORY
Captain Tybalt Marr of the Sons of Horus, so often overlooked by his more glory-hungry brethren, returns to his Legion in triumph. However, his boasts of having slain the infamous Iron Hands warleader Shadrak Meduson soon fall flat when he learns of the recent assassination attempt on Horus himself. Gathering his forces upon the conquered world of Dwell, Marr returns to battle against the Shattered Legions, determined to earn his rightful place in history.

Running time 67 minutes. Performed by Gareth Armstrong, John Banks, Robin Bowerman, Ian Brooker, Steve Conlin, Toby Longworth, Luis Soto & Ramon Tukaram.

Written by Graham McNeill

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
It shows the Shattered Legions from another perspective: the enemies they’re harrying; it also gives a spotlight to a Sons of Horus character who’s been around from the Heresy’s beginning.

Black Library also re-released a ton of books for the Horus Heresy in softcover as well as hardback. You can check the full spread here.

If you’re looking for something a little more contemporary in the time line, there is also a new Space Marine Battles Anthology to check out: Crusaders of Dorn.

Crusaders of Dorn eBook $15.99 / $17.00 Paperback

BLPROCESSED-crusaders-of-dorn-ebook

Seven tales of the crusading sons of Rogal Dorn see them take on dangerous aliens in infernal regions, and wage total war on Armageddon – the xenos won’t know what hit them.

THE STORY
For ten millennia, the Black Templars have continued the Great Crusade, remaining true to the Emperor’s dream of a galaxy free of the alien, the traitor and the mutant. One of the few Chapters to venerate the Emperor as a god, they strive always to follow His example and secure His Imperium for all mankind. This anthology showcases seven tales of the sons of Sigismund, including an exploration of High Marshal Helbrecht’s first crusade, and three stories from the Third War for Armageddon.

Includes the short stories Circle of Honour, The Black Pilgrims, Helbrecht: The Crusader, The Uncanny Crusade, The Glorious Tomb, Only Blood and Season of Shadows.

Written by Guy Haley

Will the Sons of Russ be able to rescue their Chapter Master or will the Chaos forces be able to take down Space Wolf Santa? Only one way to find out!
  • Beefcake the mighty

    Ooh light blue space marines!😀

  • Take note that Crusaders of Dorn does not include The Eternal Crusader by Guy Haley. That’s a novella that ties into Helsreach. Its artwork is featured inside, the placeholder cover on Amazon used TEC art, and I believe it originally said it would be included. Nope. Why sell it all together when you can reduce the number of pages and probably soon release a hardback run of TEC?

    The Either is just a physical release with new cover art, its been out for months and months.

    And no, Logan doesn’t reappear. There is a sequel novel to Legacy of Russ being worked on (Robbie MacNiven was going to write it but rescheduled before starting), but in here, Grimnar stays lost.

      Did Grimnar go off in a huff after people laughed at his silly reindeer games?

        Having a continent dropped on your head does tend to make one fashionably late to the after party.

    Whats happening regardi g wolves vs dark angels after the DA nuked ine of the wolves moons? Has any confrontation happened?

    • Apparently Azrael allows Ragnar and Stern to enter the Rock, and they reveal the Changeling as pulling the strings. The Watchers prevent the Changeling from freeing the Fallen and the Dark Angels and Space Wolves aren’t on opposing sides anymore for the time being.

        The problem with the ending is that the story involved a whole crusade fleet going into Fenris. If it were only Dark Angels vs. Space Wolves, the Inquisition could have brokered a peace and each side could have been like, “I’ll keep quiet about your secrets if you keep quiet about ours.” The problem, though, is that no fewer than three other Astartes Chapters, including serious players like the Ultramarines, multiple IG regiments and major elements of the Navy know that (1) There was a major daemonic incursion into the Fenris system, (2) mutants were involved fighting along side the Space Wolves, (3) there was an exchange of fire between the Space Wolves and the Navy as well as the Space Wolves and the Dark Angels that cannot be explained away with, “We were firing on the daemons but unfortunately you got caught in the blast – Grimdark, yo, deal with it.” So what will the non-Dark Angels elements of the crusade force told about the very abrupt cease of all hostilities inasmuch as they were told at the beginning that they were purging Space Wolf mutants (remember that they only learned about the daemons when then arrived)? After all, they are leaving without getting the job done – the Space Wolves are still around, and mutants are still amongst them. Were they told that the Inquisition would deal with it? Then why was a crusade to purge mutants necessary in the first place? Were they told that it wall all a big misunderstanding because the Chapter that got them all to attack a different first founding legion with an unbroken reputation for loyalty (if not orthodoxy) only did so because their leaders were manipulated by a powerful daemon? It seems that such an explanation would make things worse.

        The problem is that if the purpose of this story was to be another Space-Wolves-survive-another-misguided-attack-from-a-distrustful-Imperium story (like the attack on Fenris by the Eccleisarchy, or the invasion of Fenris after the 1st War for Armageddon), with a return to the status quo, there are now too many non-mindwipeable credible factions that are aware of major heresy (harboring mutants) on the part of the Space Wolves. In contrast, the conclusion of the Ecclesiarcy-Space Wolf war could be justified because there are already minority interpretations of the Imperial Cult tolerated (viz. the Cult of Mars and the various Space Marine cults). The Days of Shame incident could be explained away by the idea that only the Inquisition and the Space Wolves know, and there is no reason for either of them to tell anybody else.

        Since it seems clear that GW wanted the Warzone:Fenris storyline to involve major changes (like Logan Grimnar gone, Midgardia more-or-less Exterminatus’ed) but not Age of Sigmar level of change, I think that this Legacy of Russ storyline could have been tighter if it only involved the Dark Angels and the Inquisition. Because the Dark Angels can call upon all the other Unforgiven chapters to help, the scale of the action could remain the same, and the idea that the crusade could just up and depart without completing the job because the Dark Angels want to keep their own secrets makes more sense because the rest of the Unforgiven are essentially Dark Angels as well.

        • The story isn’t over. Warzone Fenris is still going. There is another novel coming, plus a campaign book, dealing with the rest. Some elements of the crusade fleet were wary of things before, others want to keep going and punish/wipe out the wolves. The big boom hasn’t happened yet.
          For now, the fleet is backing off, some parts of it reluctantly, while the situation is being reassessed.

    I was hoping a second campaign book for this finale, with new DA/GK formations and stuff. Hope it’s still on the pipeline.

    • It is, along with another novel following up on this one.

    “The Either”? That’s our title? Will there be a sequel called ” The Or” ?
