Legacy of Caliban (Limited Edition) -$65

A Warhammer 40,000 omnibus

The Dark Angels’ eternal hunt for the Fallen embroils them in a dangerous conspiracy to change the past and destroy the future, bringing the entire Imperium under the dominion of Chaos.

READ IT BECAUSE
It’s the entire epic saga. From the first battles against the orks on Piscina to the final apocayptic confrontation amidst the shattered ruins of Caliban itself (yes, really!), you’ll discover all manner of secrets about the sons of the Lion…

THE STORY
Mystery lies at the heart of the sons of the Lion. Striking across the galaxy from their space-going fortress-monastery, the Rock, they defend mankind while constantly hunting their ancient enemies, the Dark Angels who turned to the Chaos Gods in the Horus Heresy. Where one of these Fallen is found, the Chapter descends, and no one is safe until the traitors are brought to justice. This series tells the tale of a hunt for the Fallen that embroils the Chapter in a plot to change the past and future and bring about the dominion of Chaos over the Imperium.

Thrown together with others who share his innate abilities – including Mordren, of the Knights of the Raven Chapter – he must journey into an insane labyrinth inhabited by a traitorous warlord Mazik the Unfixed, and help to break a brutal siege. But what does Mazik know of Qeld and his brothers? And can Qeld and Mordren overcome their differences long enough to survive?

Overlords of the Iron Dragon – $27

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar novel

Brokrin Ullissonn, a down on his luck duardin captain, has a change in fortunes when he finds an untapped source of aether-gold – but is the danger that awaits him and his crew worth the prize, or are they doomed to further failure?

READ IT BECAUSE
It’s the Kharadron Overlords’ first starring role in a Black Library novel, and it’s as packed with high-skies action, excitement and danger as a sky-ship’s hold is with aether-gold!

THE STORY
Far above the highest mountain peaks, a new power has arisen. The duardin have developed new technology and weapons of war, and now they sail the skies in their amazing airships, seeking wealth and plunder. Brokrin Ullissonn, Captain of the Ang Drak, has a reputation for bad luck. Unless his fortune turns, and soon, he will lose his ship and his livelihood. When he and his crew discover the location of a source of aether-gold of unparalleled quality, the temptation is too strong to resist. No matter what dangers present themselves, the duardin desire wealth beyond all. But when Brokrinn realises what the true cost of the aether-gold will be, is it too late for him to save himself, his crew, and his ship?
