Yarrick: Pyres of Armageddon by David Annandale – Book Review [Bellarius]

Returning to M41 once more, Bellarius gives his verdict on how Pyres of Armageddon brings Commissar Yarrick to life.

Ghouls of the Miskatonic by Graham McNeill – Book Review [Bellarius]

Bellarius takes the time to look into another Black Library author’s attempts to expand beyond the worlds of Warhammer.

Starlight by Mark Millar – Comicbook Review [Bellarius]


Breaking away from the usual realm of superheroics, Bellarius takes a long into one of the original works of Mark Millar: Starlight.

“Exciting, intelligent, fun and colourful, Starlight is easily one of the most underrated comics of the decade.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Silver Skulls: Portents by Sarah Cawkwell – Book Review [Bellarius]


Turning to a very back-to-basics novel, Bellarius sees what is in store for the Silver Skulls with Portents.

“Another great novel to inspire fans to build chapters and further the setting, all the while providing some truly engaging bolter porn.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

The Eternal Crusader by Guy Haley – Novella Review [Bellarius]


Looking into an older novella release, Bellarius gives his thoughts on the brilliant but flawed Eternal Crusader by Guy Haley:

“While sparks of brilliance show through, Eternal Crusader is sadly held back by the desire to tie into the larger universe than be its own work.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields.

Horus Heresy: Macragge’s Honour by Dan Abnett & Neil Roberts – Comicbook Review [Bellarius]


Returning to the Horus Heresy, Bellarius weighs the best and worst of Dan Abnett and Neil Roberts’ Macragge’s Honour.

Asurman: Hand of Asuryan by Gav Thorpe – Book Review [Bellarius]


Sticking to the website’s wheelhouse, Bellarius delves into the latest novels focusing upon the Phoenix Lords, Gav Thorpe’s Asurman: Hand of Asuryan.

“Another case where fantastic lore, concepts and plans are brought to bear, but they fail to fully overcome weak characterisation and a problematic narrative.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

THUNDER: The Problematic Nature of Dream Therapy and the Rehabilitation of Felons by Rich Wilkie – Book Review [Bellarius]


Looking into another indie outing, Bellarius gives a few thoughts on Rich Wilkie’s solo outing, Thunder.

“An interesting start to be sure, and with a few great ideas, but still a hard book to truly recommend.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Devouerer by Joe Parrino – Novella Review [Bellarius]


With another Black Library release in his hands, Bellarius focuses upon the larger problems dominating Joe Parrino’s Devourer, and its wasted potential.

“Sadly a textbook example of how much conflict and focus upon violence can drown out good world-building.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields
