A couple of weeks ago the Age of Sigmar book Fyreslayers came out, including a lengthy short story of mine by the name of “The Volturung Road”. There’s a brilliant surprise I got not long after submitting the finished work that I’m going to share.

Games Workshop artist Kevin Chin enjoyed the story so much he drew this sketch of the crazed Grimwrath Bezerker Brokkengird. Cool eh? And proof if any is needed that the guys who make Warhammer up are just as mad on it as you are.


25-11-beastarises-landpageTomorrow sees the Black Library event of the year – the commencement of The Beast Arises series! In a brand new venture for BL, this galaxy-shattering story of war with the orks will be serialised across twelve parts and will be released monthly for the next year. I, your humble word goblin, have penned one as you probably know. I can reveal today that I am also writing book 12 – I get to wrap it all up! It also means I know how it ends. But I’m not talking, not for all the mushrooms in Karak Eight Peaks.

This truly does promise to be a fantastic story, detailing as it does the biggest conflict after the Horus Heresy. Don’t miss out, get your subscription today! If you order now, you’ll get all twelve parts for the price of nine.

Hey folks, I’m appearing at the grand opening of the shiny new Warhammer Huddersfield store on December 5th. I’ll be signing, so bring your books along, I’ll also be open to chats and questions. I’ve told my warboss and the orks are gearing up for a Waaagh! If they can get their space hulk in order, I might also be playing a few games. See you there!

SolaceofRageI have a new story out today. “The Solace of Rage” is the next installment of GW’s eight-episode Realmgate Wars: The Call of Archaon series. A bargain at £2.49. Roll up! Get your skulls and blood right here.

 


Yeah, it’s a bit over used, but you’ll let me get away with the Hammer Time! headline once, won’t you? Thanks.

I’ve been away for a couple of weeks. More on that later. But the summer holidays are nearly done, Benny’s back off to school tomorrow and work once again beckons. To warm up for the traditional Haley, end of year typing marathon, here’s notice of Realmgate Wars: Ghal Maraz, which snuck out while I was gone.

RealmgateWars1GhalMarazContained inside its sturdy covers is my next Warhammer: Age of Sigmar story, cosying up close to one by the inestimable Josh Reynolds. My offering, “The Eldritch Fortress” has a big magic castle in it, and a big magic hammer. Josh’s has plague daemons running amok in the verdant realm of life. If either/both tickle your fancy, check it out for the next installment of Age of Sigmar’s unfolding narrative.


Available to order today is The Eternal Crusader. Taking place during the Third War for Armageddon, the novella is set aboard the titular flagship of the Black Templars, and details High Marshal Helbrecht’s role in the conflict. Expect lots of void battles, and plenty of orks. Click here to order it!

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I’ve been working away on an army of my own. I always do something with the miniatures when I’m writing for Games Workshop, whether it’s just assembling a few or painting an entire army. Here’s my progress so far collected together in one place.
