Kharn: The Red Path (Hardback) $16

Khârn the Betrayer, Chosen of Khorne, is a force unchained and unbowed. Leading a band of ferocious berzerkers, Khârn follows the Red Path, bringing battle and bloodshed to all who stand in his way. As Abaddon the Despoiler’s Thirteenth Black Crusade grips the galaxy, the Warmaster seeks to yoke Khârn’s strength and barbarity for his own ends, but it soon becomes clear that the Champion of the Blood God will not kneel easily. In his defiance, Khârn takes a bloody path that will lead him into conflict not only with the Imperium but also the Black Legion – and none will escape the carnage that follows.

Dante (Paperback) $16

Dante is Chapter Master of one of the noblest but most troubled Chapters of Space Marines in the Imperium: the Blood Angels. From the time of his birth in the rad-scarred wastes of Baal Secundus, he was destined for glory and strife. From his apotheosis to Scout, to the hive cities of Armageddon and the alien menace of the Cryptus system, Dante has waged war against all the enemies of the Imperium. He has witnessed the divine, and struggled against the darkness within all sons of Sanguinius. Longer lived than any other Chapter Master, this is his chronicle, his great and storied legend.

Written by Guy Haley. Audio book running time is 9 hours. Narrated by Gareth Armstrong.

Cult of the Spiral Dawn (Paperback) $16

The galaxy is vast, and worship of the God-Emperor by His faithful takes many forms. The Spiral Dawn is one of the countless sanctioned sects of the Imperial cult. When a gathering of Spiralytes makes their holy pilgrimage to the sect’s home world, Redemption, instead of the haven of enlightenment they are expecting, they find a soot-choked hellhole where their order’s founders and an unorthodox regiment of Astra Militarum maintain an uneasy coexistence. As tensions between the pilgrims and the superstitious Guardsmen mount, the new arrivals begin to unravel the dark secrets concealed at the heart of their faith… This paperback edition contains a bonus short story, ‘Cast a Hungry Shadow’, available in print for the first time.

Written by Peter Fehervari

  • chris harrison

    Nobody puts Kharn the Betrayer in a corner

    • alphaecho

      I know that film. ‘Dirty Decapitating’ isn’t it?

  • DoctorBored

    Pretty light week, unless you’re a Tau player. In which case you’re chomping at the bit for this.

    One xenos codex down, two to go in this release. Let’s see what comes next, Dark Eldar or Necron? Who wants to make bets?

    • All the money on crons

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Crons, so it co-incides with the new box set

    • NNextremNN

      My bet is Necrons.

    • Graham Bartram

      …”unless you’re a Tau player. In which case you’re chomping at the bit for this.”
      Ha ha… how about no! So far Tau players (including myself), are not convinced this codex will make our little blue buddies viable again. I generalise of course but the feeling on the front seems a bit frosty. Fingers crossed, we may yet see a game changing rule (like JSJ), but I doubt it.

      • HeadHunter

        And if there was no Tau codex at all, there’d be even more salt.

        • Graham Bartram

          Well I play 3 different armies anyway (Tau, Ad Mech & Death Korps) so I’m not so bothered to be honest. That said, I’m glad it’s on the way as I want FoC to come out.

    • SacTownBrian

      I bet it’s Dark Eldar which will be another no model quick codex release. Then we’ll get Idoneth Deepkin and Necron with the Forgebane box to kick off summer.

    • LankTank

      Based on Regimental Standard it would seem Crons

  • Boondox

    More Genestealer Cults!! Hoping for the Codex eventually…

    • The novel was originally published as Legends of the Dark Millennium: Genestealer Cults (horrible name for an excellent book), but this paperback edition also includes the prequel short story. Fehervari’s shorts run pretty long, so you’re in for a good time all in all.
      I couldn’t recommend the book enough, anyway. It was one of the best releases in its year. Gets you right inside the insidious nature of the cults.

  • af

    So, um, I guess the Spiral Dawn is a Genestealer Cult, huh? So much for the suspense.

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      the cover picture kind of gives it away!

      • af

        Yes, that was my joke. Also, the book was originally published under the subtle title of “Genestealer Cults”. I guess these are little more than officially endorsed fanfic.

        • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

          isn’t almost all 40k fiction either fanfic or hack written potboilers ?

          • af

            I don’t want to offend anyone, but I’m going to go with “yes”.

        • This novel is ANYTHING but. It is some of the best stuff you’ll find published for 40k. Fehervari’s spin on 40k is far off the beaten track, highly evocative and horrific.

          The problem was that a few years back, GW almost absorbed Black Library and had the brilliant idea of publishing novels or anthologies under the label of “Legends of the Dark Millennium: [Codex]”, with the same covers as the Codex release for the faction, and it stripped all sense of identity from whatever was available for publishing at the time. The title up there was one of the working titles for the novel, which was abandoned under that branding scheme.

          Before this one got a paperback reprint, GW/BL had already changed back towards being separate entities and the LotDM line was dropped, opening this one up to getting a proper novel treatment rather than being marketed solely as a tie-in.

  • Jeremy Larson

    Whatever happened to “Dark Eldar confirmed next codex!”?

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      It is one of 3 confirmed next codecies. So I mean, wait a month and it will be out

    • I_am_Alpharius

      The internet happen…..the picture shown on WH-Com and at LVO of the next three codex’s has Drukari in the foreground, then T’au, and finally Necrons in the background. Of course then the internet runs with this and assumes the picture has been composed in order of release; when no statement of exact order was ever published or mentioned by GW.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    The cool thing about the new Tau Codex is that the cover is going to be re-colored white, so GW put more work into it than most for this edition 😛

    • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

      You can say that Tzeentch forgot the new Tau Codex, because I see no big change.

  • Crevab

    “This week the T’au Empire arrives on your tabletop with ALL the firepower. Get your wallet ready!”

    And by this you mean up for Pre-order. C’mon guys I get enough BS with politics

  • I_am_Alpharius

    Next Week’s 40K Products & Prices CONFIRMED….since last Monday when the White Dwarf started landing on subscribers doormats….

  • karl

    the artwork on Dante’s book is truly awful

    • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

      Dante playing his new role with the Fantastic 4 : Gold Surfer

    • Orblivion

      It is, but the book is terrific IMO.

      • One of the most interesting Space Marine novels in recent years. Haley once again managed to tackle a subject and reinvigorate it while adding his own spin and not being bogged down by mindless action sequences.

        The only flaw of the book that I can really see is that it, in present day, doesn’t do all that much. It starts at the end of the Shield of Baal campaign, references events from it, and ends in time for The Devastation of Baal, also by Haley. It’s all about Dante, but its placement means that you may be waiting for big things to happen, just to then be told to read the next book for it.

  • SacTownBrian

    Another no model codex release. At least this will be quick and we can get back to more fun and new models.

  • Shadowstrife

    So DoK was a relatively smaller release than the other AOS factions in terms of new models.

    That just makes the hype more real for a big splash release for the new fishmen aelves. It’s really going to make waves.

  • Please do yourselves a favor and buy Peter Fehervari’s novel. It was quite excellent and some of the most horror you can get with 40k. Very creative and unsettling.
