Heroes of the Space Marines (Warhammer 40,000 Novels)
About this deal
This anthology features an Ultramarines series tie-in by Graham McNeill featuring the Iron Warrior Honsou, a prequel story to the Salamander series by Nick Kyme, a tie-in to the Imperial Fists series by Chris Roberson and Deathwatch and Night Lords stories, setting the stars ablaze with the fury of the Space Marines.
But are the Black Templars on Stygia to help the beleaguered defenders, or for their own sinister motives? Headhunted' by Steve Parker - A Deathwatch kill team boards an Ork spaceship on a mission to assassinate the warboss.
Allerdings: wirklich „schlecht“ fand ich auch keine Geschichte, HEROES OF THE SPACE MARINES ist qualitativ also definitiv in Ordnung. The second story is `Gauntlet Run' by Chris Roberson which follows a squadron of Imperial Fist Scout Bikers as they race an Evil Sunz force across the desert. In the wake of the Battle of Rynn's World, however, priorities may have changed for these sons of Rogal Dorn.
he most heroic battle-brothers in a Space Marine company often form an elite retinue, sworn to fight alongside their Captain. All of those are the heroic Space Marine fluff style stuff that makes me want to die a hero, and that is exactly what I was looking for when I cracked the book. This was my first warhammer 40k book, and the only real thing it made me think was "Why would anyone even like the space marines?
Fires of War' by Nick Kyme is easily the longest of the stories included in this book and although I feel that the story is somewhat overlong, it is nonetheless quite good. Young men take part in a Chaotic ritual that they don't truly understand, but one thing is for certain: the only victors will be the traitorous Night Lords.
Perhaps to see if you might be interested I guess, in which case this is again a good place to start.You can arm the Captain with a master-crafted bolter, plasma pistol, or neo-volkite pistol in one hand, and a power fist or power sword in the other. If you read the Ultramarines omnibus then this book contains one story which is more ore less the introduction to possible sequel (The Skull Harvest).
Nightfall' by Peter Fehervari - There is friction within a Night Lords squad when they visit a planet to pick up new recruits. Alles in allem eine nette und kurzweilige Anthologie, welche Fans des WH40K Settings sicherlich unterhalten dürfte.
This story tells of an encounter by the Salamanders Space Marine Chapter battling Chaos forces and the Dragon Warriors Chaos Space Marines. What makes it so effective is that you can't blame them for doing what they did, making the ending all the more somber. I believe the 8 I mentioned are good enough for even non-40k fans to read; pulpy, war-torn sci-fi reading! The story is very well written and is both entertaining and funny in places with some nice action scenes and a good plot.
