About this deal

Is the future of the beleaguered Chapter more important than the hate of the foe that provides their honour? Honsou is on New Badab in the heart of the Maelstrom with the intention to win the Skull Harvest, a contest between warbands where the champions of said warbands fight each other to determine which leader gets control of each other's men.

It's funny reading work by someone I know: I could imagine him penning this between Berlitz lessons or after his usual Herculean training sessions, Tokyo's summer heat bursting from his shaven pate in thick runnels of sweat. Renegades by Gav Thorpe lacked technical ability and nearly lost me at the beginning, but picked up later on and pulled it out of the hat.The characters are good, especially Chaplin Argo who is a nice departure from the usual fire and brimstone Chaplains that you usually get. Out of the 8 stories I liked the ones that stood out the best and that made this anthology worthwhile were: Honor Among Fiends, Fires of War, Labyrinth, Headhunted, And They Shall Know No Fear, and, One Hate(details on each in my updates).

In the grim darkness of the Warhammer 40,000 universe mankind is beset by foes in a galaxy wracked by eternal war. Each of these warriors are draped in decorations and honours befitting their elite status, and can be built with bare heads or helmets. 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).

Ich muss allerdings gestehen, dass mich HEROES OF THE SPACE MARINES dennoch nicht direkt umgehauen hat – so einen richtigen Hammer habe ich unter den Stories nicht gefunden, und mitunter wirkte bei der Lektüre Vieles ziemlich vorhersehbar… und eben nicht ganz auf Augenhöhe mit den Highlights aus dem großen Fundus der in den letzten 30 Jahren erschienenen WH40K-Erzählungen. Headhunted' by Steve Parker is my favourite story included in this book and sees a Deathwatch Killteam infiltrate an ork ship. Oh there is the inclusion of Huron BlackHeart the Tyrant and it was interesting to see that every chaos space marines present on that reunion bow to him.

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. Nightfall' by Peter Fehervari - There is friction within a Night Lords squad when they visit a planet to pick up new recruits.This is a nice story that introduces the renegade Chaos God Malice (who veteran gamers may recognise as Malal).
