This week from Black Library, you can pre-order a new Primarchs novel, a gargantuan audio drama, and three 2021 calendars – let’s take a closer look at them all.
The thirteenth volume in the Primarchs series isn’t unlucky for anyone – and it’s especially good fortune for Dark Angels fans, as it sees the Lion step up to the spotlight.
Lion El’Jonson: Lord of the First by David Guymer is set towards the end of the Great Crusade, right around the time Horus is being declared Warmaster. For the first time, you can discover what stopped the Lion and his sons from being present at the Triumph of Ullanor. You’ll doubtless be unsurprised to learn that it involved dark secrets and hidden agendas…
You’ve probably noticed that this week’s big – really BIG – model release is the Mega-Gargant, which makes one of three different massive monsters. You can also get your first look – or more accurately – first listen at them in fiction with a new audio drama.
Sons of Behemat by Graeme Lyon takes you to a campfire on the eve of battle, where soldiers swap tales of their encounters with Mega-Gargants. As each tells their story, you’ll experience the action from their perspective as they come face-to-face (or maybe more face-to-toe) with the biggest monsters in the Mortal Realms.
Calendars are great. They help you keep track of important dates, and they’re usually a good decoration for your wall. Cats, Scottish castles, your favourite pop stars – there are all sorts of options. But what you really want is a calendar or three featuring art from your favourite Black Library covers. Well, guess what? You’re in luck.
Black Library’s 2021 Calendars come in three flavours – The Horus Heresy, Warhammer 40,000, and Warhammer Age of Sigmar – and each features twelve carefully selected pieces of art alongside the traditional grid of dates for you to scrawl appointments and birthdays on. These are available to Print on Demand for just two weeks, so make sure to order yours – and maybe some extras, they’ll make excellent Christmas presents!
French readers also have a couple of new releases to look forward to, both from the grim darkness of the far future.
Avenging Son by Guy Haley is the first book in the new Dawn of Fire series, and charts the beginnings of the Indomitus Crusade. It features the moment that the Primaris Space Marines were revealed to the Imperium and the crusade’s first clashes with the forces of Chaos. Mike Brooks’ Brutal Kunnin, on the other hand, focuses on an Ork Waaagh! attacking a forge world, and the rivalry between different warbands. Both books are available to pre-order now in paperback and eBook editions.
You can pre-order physical books, the CD of Sons of Behemat, and the Print on Demand calendars from games-workshop.com now. For digital editions, blacklibrary.com is your port of call. Let us know on the Black Library Facebook page what you’re picking up!
