WEFOUNDFear the Alien (Warhammer 40,000)


In the wake of Vect's uprising, the fickle Dark Eldar adopted the Kabalite system with an enthusiasm born of self-preservation. Sensing which way the wind was blowing, even the surviving Dark Eldar noble houses reinvented themselves as Kabals in their own right, though in their hearts they still covet the notion of their inherent superiority. Yet none can deny that the Kabalite system has gone from strength to strength. Power is no longer inherited in Commorragh, it must be fought for and taken by force. The authors of the Dark City's fate are those who wield the sharpest minds and blades alike, the precarious nature of their position ensuring complacency can never take root.

A Dark Eldar Kabal has a very strict hierarchy. In order from highest-ranking to least, these ranks include the following:

A Dark Eldar Kabal has a very strict hierarchy. In order from highest-ranking to least, these ranks include the following:

Collect incredible armies of miniatures representing armies from the distant future, then recreate the brutal clash of 41st Millennium warfare in tabletop games of strategy and luck for two or more players. Each aspect of the Warhammer 40,000 hobby is hugely rewarding and satisfying in its own right. Build and paint your collection as you choose, to represent one of the iconic forces of the far future, or one of your own invention.

Your army can be whatever you want it to be: legions of infantry, powerful heroes, formations of tanks, demonic and alien monsters or titanic lords of war.

Play missions across battlefields of your own creation where no two games need ever be the same. Battle competitively at local gaming clubs, in our stores, at one of the thousands of tournaments that take place across the world each year, or forge a narrative with a battle or campaign that embraces the vast and limitless options offered from one of the richest and most expansive settings in all of fantasy and science fiction.

Gardens of Tycho by Dan Abnett
A fun shift from the norm: Abnett weaves a detective story in to the 40 ‘verse and does so nicely. Again Dan Abnett shows why he’s easily one of the best authors in the BL stable. I loved the characters, especially the protagonist who is very dissimilar to many of Abnett’s other protagonists.
4 Stars

Fear Itself by Juliet E. McKenna
A very strong tale of Guardsmen awaiting relief from a unit of Space Marines in the midst of a Tyranid invasion. Very gritty and very true in feel to the whole 40k “grim, dark future”. Where many authors tend to save the good guys in the end, McKenna does a fine job in portraying the “holding on in the face of hopelessness” that is so very 40k.
4 Stars

Prometheus Requiem by Nick Kyme, a companion story to the Tome of Fire trilogy
Fantastic characterization! I loaned out Salamander by Nick Kyme and it never returned home, so I didn’t end up reading it. After this, I went and bought it at Barnes and Noble so I could catch up.
