Day 5 of Advent 2016
An Iron Hands audio drama


Warleader Kardan Stronos of the Iron Hands fights against the tyranids on Varasine, measuring his Chapter’s infallible logic and ruthless strategy against the cost in human lives.

The Iron Hands can be among the most inhuman of Space Marines, pitting cold logic and precise calculations above the lives of those they ostensibly fight to defend… as the Astra Militarum are about to discover.

The beleaguered Astra Militarum defenders of Varasine fight against the alien menace of a tyranid invasion, but their only possible salvation approaches in the form of something almost equally inhuman. Warleader Kardan Stronos of the Iron Hands, long having studied the xenos threat, now brings his fearless battle-brothers to join the war – only he can save Varasine, measuring his Chapter’s infallible logic and ruthless strategy against the cost in human lives.

Written by David Guymer. Running time 21 minutes. Performed by John Banks, Cliff Chapman, Steve Conlin, Toby Longworth and Luis Soto.
