In the grim darkness of the far future, and in the vastness of the Mortal Realms, there are those characters who stand out amongst all others.
Within these pages, and collected for the first time, are stories of some of Black Library’s best-loved and well-known heroes and villains. On deadly battlefields, Commissar Ibram Gaunt leads his regiment, the Tanith ‘Ghosts’, in a desperate battle for survival; on Ultramar, Ultramarines Captain Uriel Ventris stands as a bulwark against the forces of Chaos; in the shadowy underbelly of the Imperium, Inquisitors Crowl and Covenant ply their clandestine trade. Throughout embattled lands, the realm of gods and monsters, Vampire Queen Neferata seeds dark plots to secure her power, whilst Lord-Celestant Gardus Steelsoul is a paragon of virtue and honour, and drives back the pestilent hordes of the Plague God. These are just some of the legends, the light and the darkness – the icons of the Warhammer worlds.
