Primarchs: Lorgar Limited Edition

Lorgar Ltd Ed Cover

Primarchs Book 5
Only 2,500 available
Written by Gav Thorpe

Long before he brought Chaos and war to the Imperium, the primarch Lorgar was raised on the world of Colchis, used as a weapon by the xealot Kor Phaeron in his bid to control the whole world. But Lorgar’s destiny was far greater…

READ IT BECAUSE
We’ve seen Lorgar’s fall to Chaos and rise as the high priest of Horus’s rebellion, but for the first time, the full story of Lorgar’s time on Colchis and Kor Phaeron’s part in his childhood is told.

THE STORY
On the world of Colchis, mighty religions rule a decaying society in the name of absent gods – until the arrival of Lorgar. Primarch, prophet, leader of destiny, the Golden One is raised by Kor Phaeron, priest of the Covenant, to be his weapon in a quest for power. As religious war spreads across the planet, spearheaded by the Brotherhood of Lorgar, the primarch is plagued by visions of the future and the coming of the Emperor. To find his place in this new order, he must reach balance between the teachings of his adopted father Kor Phaeron, and the fate that he knows awaits him among the stars.

Dark Compliance

Dark Compliance Audio

A Horus Heresy audio drama

As the traitor Warmaster’s armies sweep across the Imperium, the Mechanicum world of Accazzar-Beta stands firm in their defiance. But for how long can they stand against Horus?

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
It’s a look at the fate that befalls worlds that dare to defy the Warmaster.

THE STORY
For more than two hundred years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy – led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen… As Horus’s rebellion gains momentum, more and more worlds flock to his banner. For some, it is through fear of annihilation; for others, it is out of malicious desire. Any that consider resistance are given one chance to swear fealty. To do anything other is to court disaster and worse. Accazzar-Beta is one such defier, but in bringing this heavily-fortified Mechanicum world to heel, just how far is the Warmaster willing to go and what truly is the meaning of a dark compliance? As two fleets engage across the gulf of the void, Accazzar-Beta will find out.

Farsight: Crisis of Faith

Farsight Crisis of Faith Royal

A Tau Empire novel

Fresh from his victory on Arkunasha, the young Commander Farsight leads a crusade to reclaim colonies lost to mankind’s Imperium. But stiff resistance will test him to his limits, and beyond.

READ IT BECAUSE
Phil Kelly continues his look at the life of Commander Farsight with his first campaign against the full might of the Imperium, and shows how the Tau Empire’s technological superiority fares against Imperial grit.

THE STORY
The tau are a mysterious alien race, diametrically opposed to the Imperium of Man in every possible way – in their mastery of technology, methods of warfare and social structure. Yet in galactic terms they are a young race, and naive when it comes to the manipulations of Chaos. When promising young Commander Farsight is promoted to lead a crusade across the Damocles Gulf to reclaim the tau’s lost colonies from mankind, the mood is one of optimism. With their mighty fleet, and superior weapons and machines, how can their endeavour possibly fail? However, despite a parade of early successes, Commander Farsight soon faces enemies he wasn’t anticipating, and finds not only his courage but also his soul tested to the very limit.

Written by Phil Kelly

Primarchs: Perturabo

Perturabo B format HB

Primarchs Book 4

While crusading to build the Imperium, Perturabo, mercurial primarch of the Iron Warriors, hears of turmoil on the world where he was raised, and abandons the crusade to return home and save his people.

READ IT BECAUSE
Focusing on Perturabo during his youth on Olympia, in the Great Crusade and upon his return to the world that defined him, this is a definitive look at what makes the master of iron tick.

THE STORY
Born to a life of political conflict, Perturabo was always considered a child prodigy among the people of Olympia – indeed, his philosophical and scientific works were beyond compare. But then, after his rediscovery by the Emperor and decades of thankless military campaigning on the Great Crusade, the primarch begins to resent his Legion’s place in the Imperium. When word reaches him of turmoil on his adoptive home world, he orders the Iron Warriors to abandon their campaign against the alien hrud and crush this emerging rebellion by any means necessary…

Written by Guy Haley.

With 5 new books and 1 new audio book, July seems like it’s going to be a good month for lore fans all over. The Tau have a new book coming, alongside of the Primarchs Book 4, and the limited edition Primarchs Book 5. These new books seem like they’re giving us something to look forward to this summer!
