Lorgar: Bearer of the Word (Limited Edition) – $65

Long before he brought Chaos and war to the Imperium, the Primarch Lorgar was raised on the world of Colchis, used as a weapon by the zealot Kor Phaeron in his bid to control the whole world. But Lorgar’s destiny was far greater…

Read it Because

We’ve seen Lorgar’s fall to Chaos and rise as high priest of Horus’ rebellion, but for the first time, the full story of Lorgar’s time on Colchis and Kor Phaeron’s part in his childhood is told.


The Story

On the world of Colchis, mighty religions rule a decaying society in the name of absent gods — until the arrival of Lorgar. Primarch, prophet, leader of destiny, the Golden One is raised by Kor Phaeron, a priest of the Covenant, to be his weapon in a quest for power. As religious war spreads across the planet, spearheaded by the Brotherhood of Lorgar, the primarch is plagued by visions of the future and the coming of the Emperor. To find his place in this new order, he must reach balance between the teachings of his adopted father Kor Phaeron and the fate he knows awaits him in the stars.

Dark Compliance$9.99

As the traitor Warmaster’s armies sweep across the Imperium, the Mechanicum world of Accazzar-Beta stands firm in their defiance. But for how long can they stand against Horus?

It’s a look at the fate that befalls worlds that dare to defy the Warmaster.

For more than two hundred years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy – led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen… As Horus’s rebellion gains momentum, more and more worlds flock to his banner. For some, it is through fear of annihilation; for others, it is out of malicious desire. Any that consider resistance are given one chance to swear fealty. To do anything other is to court disaster and worse. Accazzar-Beta is one such defier, but in bringing this heavily-fortified Mechanicum world to heel, just how far is the Warmaster willing to go and what truly is the meaning of a dark compliance? As two fleets engage across the gulf of the void, Accazzar-Beta will find out.

Reading about Lorgar is probably not heretical. Probably.
