REVIEW: Ravenwing by Gav Thorpe


Gav Thorpe returns to the helm of the Dark Angels chapter with his latest novel Ravenwing. When I first read Angels of Darkness I was blown away with how good it was. It was one of the first books that dealt with the Heresy in such a direct manner via the Fallen Astelan and started […]

40K LORE: The 13th Black Crusade


Do you remember when Eldrad died, or when Abaddon had obtained the mysterious object from the center of the Eye known as the Heart of Chaos? Well apparently the most momentous event in recent 40k lore has disappeared.  Since I started 40k in 2000 there have been 2 major events, Armageddon and the Black Crusade. Both were […]

40K REVIEW: Betrayer by Aaron Dembski-Bowden

REVIEW: Angel Exterminatus


Hey everyone, Tyler M. here with a review of Graham McNeill’s latest Horus Heresy novel  Angel Exterminatus. Graham McNeill is very hit or miss for me. He has his great novels like Fulgrim, Thousand Sons, Storm of Iron and Nightbringer, and he has his not so great. This, happily falls into the former. When Fulgrim first came […]

Today we take a peak behind the curtain into the development of The Lord Inquisitor movie as well as an interview with its author, Aaron Dembski-Bowden. Some of you may be wondering what is The Lord Inquisitor?  Lordi (as it is affectionately known in short hand) is a fan made CG movie that was conceived by Erasmus Brosdau a few years back […]
