Horus Heresy: Shattered Legions, Magnus and Perturabo

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

Three new books on the way in the next months - Shattered Legions, Magnus and Perturabo!

Let's start with another compilation of Horus Heresy stories that is coming out in April - Shattered Legions. It collects "Meduson" and "The Seventh Serpent", which both were only available as event only books as far as I remember.

Driven almost to the brink of self-destruction at Isstvan V, the Iron Hands now seek vengeance for the murder of their primarch Ferrus Manus. Gathering survivors from the Raven Guard and the Salamanders aboard any vessels capable of warp travel, these Shattered Legions wage a new campaign of annihilation against the traitor forces across the galaxy – a campaign masterminded by legendary warleader Shadrak Meduson. This Horus Heresy anthology contains ten short stories by authors including Dan Abnett, Chris Wraight, John French and many more. Also, in the novella The Seventh Serpent, Graham McNeill revisits the ragtag crew of the starship Sisypheum as they are drawn into a war of subterfuge against the Alpha Legion.

Meduson by Dan Abnett
The Noose by David Annandale
The Keys of Hel by John French
Unforged & Unspoken by Guy Haley
Immortal Duty by Nick Kyme
The Either & The Seventh Serpent by Graham McNeill
Deeds Endure by Gav Thorpe
Grey Talon & The Hand Elect by Chris Wraight

January will bring us the first release for Magnus the Red - really exciting, especially for me :)

Lord of the mystical and uncanny, Magnus the Red has long studied the ancient crafts of sorcery. A psyker without peer, save only for the Emperor himself, he commands his loyal followers of the Thousand Sons Legion in the Great Crusade, though also vigilant for any lost knowledge they might recover from the remains of dead human civilisations. Now, fighting alongside his brother Perturabo of the Iron Warriors, Magnus begins to foresee an approaching nexus of fate - will he remain true to their mutual aims, or divert his own efforts towards furthering his own mastery of the warp?

Written by Graham McNeill

You can read a free extract (ePub) using this link:

Last but not least - Perturabo, Hammer of Olympia!

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

A book featuring Perturabo, Olympia and Hrud (their first real appereance in fiction!)? Can't wait to get my hands on that!

What do you think about the upcoming HH/Primarch books? What Primarch do you want to see featured next?

  1. Magnus is already ordered and I'm loving the Primarchs series so far.
    Meduson was available online as an even fancier edition with a couple of CDS in the dust cover BTW.
    Leman Russ is best so far, finally having the novelisation of the Lion and the Wolf was fantastic.

  2. I just really want my angron book.

    1. *slaps your head with Betrayer*

      Betrayer was awesome. Hope Aaron gets to write the Angron book, or I'll be dissapointed :/

  3. Omygosh, it means Dan Abnett is still GW-ly living !

    1. The story was written a while ago ^^

    2. Archeological proof of the existing of Dan Abnett (circa. M3)


  4. Seventh Serpent was avaliable as a limited novella a while ago (18/24 months ago) as I've got it on my HH bookcase!!

  5. For me the Primarch books are more about who wrote them than which Primarch it's about.

    If it's by ADB, Graham Mcneill, Dan Abnett or Chris Wraight then it'll probably be great.

    Some of the other authors maybe hit and miss.

  6. Graham McNeill wrote about the Hrud in Gods of Mars.
