Jagatai Khan, Warhawk of Chogoris (Ltd. Ed.) – $65

For long years, the White Scars have fought for the Imperium, bringing worlds to compliance. But when a new project, to embed psykers in the Space Marine Legions, seems likely to come to fruition, Jaghatai Khan must decide if he will comply…

READ IT BECAUSE
Chris Wraight returns to the Khan of Khans with a tale set at the height of the Great Crusade and showing the momentous decisions that, in some ways, led to the darkest events of the Horus Heresy.

THE STORY
Ever since the Imperium’s discovery of Chogoris, the White Scars’ culture of warrior mysticism has sat uneasily with the ideals of Unity. As the Crusade burns across the stars, their enigmatic primarch Jaghatai Khan fights to preserve their distinctiveness amid a galaxy where cold rationality holds sway. Despite his self-imposed isolation, others in the brotherhood of primarchs seek to draw him into the greatest ideological battle of them all – the place of psychic power within the Legions. As the Librarius project is born, and opposition to it grows, the Khan must decide where his greatest allegiance lies – to the Imperial Truth, or to his own heritage.

Titan’s Bane$9.99

An Astra Militarum audio drama

Trapped inside a stricken Shadowsword, Lieutenant Quiller must keep her crew safe from harm – both from the enemy and vicious infighting.

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
It’s a tense drama set in the close, cramped confines of an Imperial tank.

THE STORY
Following a ferocious battle against Nurgle’s hordes, Lieutenant Quiller and the crew of Titans’ Bane are trapped inside the stricken Shadowsword. With her Cadian unit half-depleted, Quiller is forced to rely upon Paragonian and Mordian replacements. Vicious infighting within the tank soon becomes as dangerous as the enemy outside. In order to survive, Quiller knows she must remind her men that loyalty, camaraderie and self-sacrifice in the name of the Emperor transcends all planetary customs and patriotism.

Written by Chris Dows
Running time 46 minutes. Performed by Ken Bradshaw, Cliff Chapman, Steve Conlin, Matt Huntbach, Penelope Rawlins & Andrew Wincott.

Hallowed Knights Plague Garden – $15.99

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar novel

During the greatest battles of the War for Life, the Stormcast Eternals suffered a great tragedy: the Hallowed Knights Lord-Castellant Lorus Grymn was lost to the Realm of Chaos. Now his fellow Steel Souls venture into the domain of Nurgle himself in search of their lost comrade…

READ IT BECAUSE
It’s a return to the Mortal Realms… sort of. It’s something new for the Age of Sigmar as the Stormcast Eternals take on Chaos not just in the usual places, but right in the very heart of the Dark Gods’ own domain.

THE STORY
As the War for the Realm of Life continues, Lord-Castellant Lorrus Grymn leads the battered remnants of the Steel Souls warrior chamber against the sargasso-citadels of the Verdant Bay. The Hallowed Knights claim victory, but at a terrible cost – Grymn is lost to Realm of Chaos. Now Gardus, newly-reforged and fresh from the destruction of the Scabrous Sprawl, must lead his warriors into the foetid heart of Nurgle’s realm in search of the Lord-Castellant, where they must once more brave the horrors of the Realm of Decay…

Written by Josh Reynolds.
