With another Chaos focused tale focusing upon the Horus Heresy’s aftermath, Bellarius steps in to give his own verdict on Khârn: Eater of Worlds.

Stormcaller

After finishing the first installment of Chris Wraight’s ongoing Space Wolf series, Bellarius weighs the pros and cons of his follow-up with Stormcaller.
