Description

Quillon Drask: Quillon possesses a 'gift', one that lets him place himself into the minds of the most demented of individuals. It gives him a morbid edge when pursuing and solving heinous crimes, a gift molded under the tutelage of his mentor Alexius: a mentor who he was forced to kill, after he almost murdered Quillon. Quillon drowns in his past, bearing the trauma of Alexius as he struggles to stay afloat in a city that pulls good men under. A detective through and through, Quillon takes on the worst cases out of moral duty, to hold its perpetrators to account. His sanity is the cost however, as despite choking down his own vomit, he cannot bare to look away from what he sees, and will come to see. Containing oodles of new pieces to make dozens of configurations, this lavish launch set is the first place you can get hold of the new Chaos Knights kits, their codex, and their datacards. With enough bits to build one psychically potent Knight Abominant and two War Dogs, this is the perfect basis for a rippin’, tearin’, stompin’ new army, or excellent reinforcements for an existing warband of walkers. This anthology takes you to the very forefront of the blistering action in the Sabbat Worlds. It features new stories from some of your favourite authors, including Dan Abnett (naturally), Graham McNeill, John French, Matthew Farrer, and Rachel Harrison. Sabbat Worlds Crusade The next chapter in the ongoing Sabbat Worlds saga focuses on Urdesh. Here, the Iron Snakes are on a mission to prevent a potent living weapon from falling into the hands of the Anarch. The fate of the entire crusade hangs in the balance. In the end, will it all have been for nothing? Ibram Gaunt Bookmark

We’ll have all of the week’s hobby news right here on Warhammer Community, including miniature reveals tomorrow and a monstrous amount of coverage from the absolutely enormous reveals coming at Warhammer Fest Online 2022. Don’t miss the live Twitch streams of both Warhammer Fest and the US Open from Seattle. In the grim darkness of the far future, there is a vast city… an urban sprawl of murder and corruption. A den of vice and illicit deeds where the law is failing and justice is fleeting. Glutted merchant-kings turn the wheels of industry, feeding the engine of war on distant worlds while the lowly dream only of survival. As the gilded prosper, hidden behind their fortress walls, the masses must find a place within the underbelly. But regardless of station, whether criminal or law-keeper, one fact remains true – this city is dirty, and no one escapes it without a little sin. For in Varangantua, there are no good men.

A New Season of Dark Thrillers Begins - Warhammer Community

And there you have it – six stunning miniatures that perfectly encapsulate the characters they represent from the novels. Whether you’re an avid fan of the series or a painter looking for your next challenge, Gaunt’s Ghosts will be the perfect addition to your collection. The colossal city of Varangantua sprawls across the surface of Alecto like a dying beast, its innards crawling with some of the most insidious criminals the Imperium has to offer. From vast syndicates to small-time gangs and secretive cults, the city’s labyrinthine districts are the perfect breeding ground for all manner of illicit enterprise. The Enforcers of Varangantua are all that stand in the way of total lawlessness, and many of these are as corrupt as the gangers they oppose, knowing no language but violence. This mega limited edition includes a beautifully bound copy of the book itself, plus a whole host of extras. You’ll find a pair of maps, a cap pin, coins, art, a metal memory box, and loads more. Also included is a datasheet with rules to use Gaunt’s Ghosts in your games of Warhammer 40,000. Sabbat WarExecution - It's oppressive, Varangantua and the Polaris district. The darkest corners of the city drip out from the book as Collins tries to pull you down into his work alongside Quillon, your hairs stand on edge as he rounds each corner. You start to realise this is more of a horror novel at times. For me, Warhammer – especially Warhammer 40,000 – has this utterly unique character. Everything is wonderfully bleak and utterly baroque. A fine line between complete creative joy and utter existential despair.” The Knight Abominant is a beast in all phases of the game, with deadly guns that can reap infantry and heavy targets alike, an armoury of vicious close-combat weaponry in the form of an electroscourge and a tail-mounted balemace, and the malefic ability to manifest two psychic powers each turn. It’s the perfect overlord for your Fallen house. Varangantua is but one city among billions, but in it we see a microcosm of the people who make up the Imperium of Mankind. Not the warriors who sell their lives dearly on battlefields far from home, but rather the downtrodden and desperate who do what they must to survive. Quillon Drask is just one such citizen, fighting his own battles to root out the truth, no matter how ugly. I do wish that the story provided more information regarding the "first settlers" that arrived on the Fortitude of Terra, particularly Araceli Vranx ("Captain A. Vance"). How & why did she survive for so long, to become the head of the Vranx merchant-combine? The final chapter offers some insight into her motivations and schemes, but I wish they had been more thoroughly woven throughout the novel..

Warhammer Crime – The Range So Far – Track of Words Warhammer Crime – The Range So Far – Track of Words

Connections: to learn more about Melita Voronova I would suggest reading the short stories Service (in Sanction & Sin) and Chains (e-short/available in Once a Killer) first, before reading The King of the Spoil. For more about the Spoil and one of the secondary characters in The King of the Spoil, you could also read Old Instincts (in Broken City). There's a lot of horror going on here. There's plenty of blood and viscera and horrible murders, but much more than that, there's a deeper look at fear, isolation, paranoia and the nightmarish realities of social inequality and exploitation -these writ as large and gruesome as possible in the very old Warhammer tradition. Here the rich quite literally eat the working class. Connections: I would listen to this before reading The Wraithbone Phoenix, and then read the short story Outside Powers (in The Vorbis Conspiracy). Guy Haley: This year has been a busy one. I’ve been deeply involved with Warhammer 40,000’s ongoing narrative, with Dawn of Fire powering on, but the big noise for 2021 has to be Godblight , the concluding part of the Dark Imperium trilogy. I know loads of you were waiting for the finale, and I was glad to provide it. Rewriting the first two novels a bit to tie them deeper into the current story was also really rewarding. The Plague Wars might be over, but Guillman’s work is far from done… Es hat mehr Stimmung und vor allem auch etwas mehr Spannung in der Handlung, ausserdem wurde ich weniger durch die vielen unbekannten Namen verwirrt. Ansonsten sind beide Bücher sehr gute Warhammer-Titel, die einen auch mal ins Leben abseits der Schlachtfelder mitnehmen, aber auch zeigen, dass auch dort Krieg herrscht. Einfach in anderer Form.

Now that we’ve got the news of those incredible miniatures out of our system, let’s talk about… BOOKS.

Grim Repast – Marc Collins – Track of Words

Every detective story lives or dies by the quality of its central character, and while Drask exhibits plenty of the usual tropes they’re combined in such a way as to make him both believable and grimly compelling to follow. He’s a man who sees patterns that others don’t but also darkness wherever he turns, who’s troubled and labouring under the shadows of his past, but determined to be his own man. These qualities make him a great detective if not a happy one, forever balanced on a knife-edge, and for all his insight and ability the work he undertakes brings him as much pain as it does comfort. As Drask says himself, there are “no gifts here…only curses.” If you can, it’s best to read the short story Cold Cases (in No Good Men) before this to get a deeper sense of Drask’s history, as the events of that story have a bearing on proceedings here, but it’s not essential.
