Book Review: Survival Instinct by Andy Chambers

Posted on by 5WC in Book

It’s happened! I’ve finally found a Necromunda novel I truly like. There aren’t many named characters in the world of Necromunda, it’s much more about gangs, fighting for survival and territory, under the association of their respective noble houses, but there are one or two outsiders. Characters who stand alone. Arguably the most famous, and …

Book Review: Salvation by C.S. Goto

Posted on by 5WC in Book

It was with tentative trepidation that, once again, I re-entered the Underhive; continuing my journey through the “Tales of the Underhive” omnibus of Necromunda novels. I had slipped down the slope of expectation with both Outlander by Matt Keefe and Junktion by Matthew Farrer and, therefore, taken some time away, to cleanse my mind of the …

Book Review: Brothers Of The Snake By Dan Abnett

Posted on by 5WC in Book

I don’t know if I should admit to the fact that I only bought this book because it was (relatively) cheap! Games Workshop’s publishing arm – The Black Library – was celebrating it’s 20th birthday and my local store was having a party (I even baked a cake). Lots of hard to find books were …

Book Review: Junktion By Matthew Farrer

Posted on by 5WC in Book

Having re-entered the world of Necromunda through, apparently, the wrong door with Outlander by Matt Keefe and, with over half a dozen other stories still waiting in line, I thought I really should find some sort of correct order. Google turned up nothing, an email to the Black Library customer service was little help either …

Book Review: Outlander by Matt Keefe

Posted on by 5WC in Book

Spend a few minutes looking through the book reviews or reading about my creative history and you’ll quickly realise I’m a fan of the worlds created by Games Workshop. I may not roll dice, or spend hours holding a paintbrush anymore, but I still draw great enjoyment from delving into the sci-fi and fantasy imaginations …

Book Review: The Path Of The Outcast by Gav Thorpe

The Path Of The Outcast promises so much, having taken so long to arrive. Everything is set up and repeated in the first two novels of Gav Thorpe’s The Path Of The Eldar omnibus that the weight of expectation you create onto The Path Of The Outcast, the demands you place on it to give …

Book Review: Path Of The Eldar – Short Stories

Posted on by 5WC in Book

There are three short stories that accompany the main Path Of The Eldar trilogy – The Curse Of Shaa-Dom, The Reward Of Tolerance and Dark Son. And they mainly follow a pattern of taking some of the lesser characters or supporting events from the main trilogy and attempting to expand they out briefly to give …

Book Review: Yarrick: A Plague Of Saints by David Annandale

Posted on by 5WC in Book

If you’ve read some of my previous book reviews you will have seen my musings on two stories – Valedor and Wraithflight – by Guy Haley which recount events surrounding a Warhammer 40,000 race known as the Eldar. And if you’ve also spent some time flicking through the various pages of this site, you will …

Book Review: Wraithflight by Guy Haley

Posted on by 5WC in Book

In theory it’s a religious countdown, in practice it’s an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast and more often these days, it’s a marketing tool used by companies to either release unsold stock or drive awareness through promotion. I am of course, talking about Advent. And while I tucked into my ever perennially shrinking lump …
