Book Review: Castle of Blood by CL Werner

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains significant spoilers for Castle of Blood. Recently I reviewed the Cursed City prequel novel, a decidedly odd book limited by the circumstances of its existence. Flawed though it is, I enjoyed Werner's writing in it, and...

Book Review: Cursed City by CL Werner

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains significant spoilers for the Cursed City novel. But then again so does just playing the game. To accompany the recent Cursed City board game release, Black Library published a tie-in novel of the same name. Despite...

Book Review: Alpharius: Head of the Hydra, by Mike Brooks

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains spoilers for Alpharius: Head of the Hydra by Mike Brooks and also Legion by Dan Abnett. So if you're very spoiler-averse, don’t read this review. If still want to know if the book is...

Goonhammer Review: Broken Realms: Teclis

Broken Realms: Morathi was a landmark book for Age of Sigmar. Shocking myself, and many others, it had some solid rules for the factions contained within and the conflict described within did not end in a stalemate. The fall...

Book Review: Anathemas

Short story anthologies have been a firm feature of the Warhammer Horror imprint since its implementation (and judging by the recent open submissions call, we're due another at least one more). The imprint launched with Maledictions, followed by Invocations, and,...

Book Review: Bloodlines by Chris Wraight

This review contains minor spoilers for Bloodlines. Way back in 2018, Games Workshop announced a new imprint for Black Library - Warhammer Horror. The idea here was fairly simple - take the existing Warhammer universes and the horror elements that...

War of the Spider Review, Part 4- Sisters of Silence & Assassins

Even with 9th on the horizon War of the Spider (WotS) hasn't held back on the flood of content, with a mighty five different sets of rules to talk about. We've covered off the big ones, and to finish...

Book Review: Saturnine – Limited Edition Hardback

This review does NOT contain spoilers for Saturnine. That wouldn't be nice.  "There is work to be done,' he announced. 'I'm aware.' said Abbadon. 'My beloved lord,' said Eidolon, 'grows--' 'Many more supple breasts every day?' asked Aximand. The Mournival...
