This week, the founder of the Howling Banshees takes the center stage as Eldar clashes with Eldar.

That’s right friends. Nobody does smug haughtiness like the Eldar, and when they disagree–well, that’s when it intensifies. It’s willpower vs. might as the Eldar try and settle their differenes. Surely it’s just going to be some easy conflict resolution. It comes in three different versions–eBook, audiobook, or fancy limited edition.

Also check out the newest Blood Bowl short story and step into the carnage from the perspective of the Referee.

Jain Zar: The Storm of Silence (Hardback) $27

The eldar are an ancient race whose mode of war blends spirituality with a unique mastery of technology. In times of need, their entire race will rouse to war – led by terrifying, almost mythological figures – the phoenix lords, immortal beings embody the warrior nature of the eldar. A swift and deadly fighter, Jain Zar can harness the rage of her scream to slaughter any who dare oppose her.

When a burgeoning ork empire starts to pose a threat to the eldar peoples, Jain Zar travels to the craftworld Ulthwé to warn them of the danger. However, she finds her plans to divert disaster are opposed by one of the craftworld’s own seers, Eldrad. With so many futures possible, which path should the eldar walk to avert destruction of their craftworlds and put an end to the greenskin menace?

It’s rare to see disagreement between Craftworld Eldar on the right way to proceed, and when one of those involved is the legenday Jain Zar, things are sure to get ugly… and entertaining.

A Blood Bowl story

A former player turned hired thug – the perfect referee for the big game, surely? Cheating dwarfs and chronically violent orcs may disagree, and ‘Sulk’ may have the fight of his life coming.

His glory days now behind him, ex Blood Bowl player Gulden von Sulkenhof now makes a living working as hired thug for the Kobassi brothers, a pair of notorious ogres who run a notorious crime empire in Altdorf. But there’s a big match coming up, and the Kobassis have placed a massive bet on the outcome, backing the weaker team to win. To ensure their plan works, they fix things so Sulk referees the game. Faced with cheating dwarfs and chronically violent orcs, Sulk has to use all his ingenuity to make sure the ‘right’ team wins.

It’s typically anarchic Blood Bowl mayhem, from a very different perspective. We normally see the referee as the enemy – but step into his shoes and see how the game looks.

Finally–a chance to find out what *exactly* is wrong with the ref. Is he blind? Does he need glasses? Read on and find out!
