Tomorrow, thirteen years of the Horus Heresy series will meet their culmination in The Solar War – the first in an 8-volume megaseries that’ll bring the story to its epic climax. We’re letting you know about this one early, as it’s expected to sell out incredibly fast.

 

The Solar War, by John French, details the first stage of this epoch-defining battle as fleets clash in the void of the Sol System. Horus’ armada is huge, his treacherous forces bolstered by the powers of the warp – but Rogal Dorn has had close to a decade to prepare the Throneworld’s defences. The various spheres of defiance within the system hold more than a few surprises for the invaders – and the Imperial Fists themselves relish the chance to finally get to grips with their erstwhile brothers.

This limited edition is more than just your first chance to read this incredible story. It’s an opportunity to add a stunning artefact to your bookshelves. From the exterior design, which will be echoed across future limited editions in the series, to the extravagant interior artwork – including character portraits, black-and-white illustrations and full-colour studies of a number of primarchs – the book is a true collector’s item. It also includes a detailed afterword by author John French talking about the process of writing the book, and the series, in unparalleled detail.

There are just 2,500 copies of The Solar War Limited Edition available – and they’re not likely to last long, so don’t miss out on your chance to order this piece of Horus Heresy history. It’ll be available on the Black Library website from 10am GMT, and on the Games Workshop website at different times depending on where you are in the world.

The LE looks nice but nothing I'd pay extra money for. It's how the books should look like in the first place imo.

I’m hoping to get a LE copy.

Of course that’ll mean getting seven more LE books as they’re released.

My wallet is writhing in pain at the thought.

Yup, then I’ll be at the mercy of the eBay scalpers with their extreme levels of ridiculousness.

Real tempted, but I dont think I care to lock myself into 'expensive version' for the series, when there are almost certainly to be a few duds.

I'll be purchasing the limited editions for the authors I like (French, Wraight, ADB) and not bothering to get the full set, because I know this way I won't be disappointed. If I bought a limited edition for something Gav Thorpe wrote it would sit on the shelf forever after I'd read it once. This way I know they'll be getting use.

 

Anyway, super keen.

I’d buy a LE book by Gav Thorpe in order to complete the series, but I’d feel dirty afterwards.

The kind of dirty that doesn’t wash off.

I like the limited edition but if I bought in now I’d have to buy the next seven.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

Wow they are going for maximum money on something with a foregone conclusion. Is there anybody out there who is on the edge of their seats wondering how it ends? Unless they do a Star Trek Discovery...Rocks fall most people die.

So how much for the ah, basic ebook, not collectable ones?

Looks like a nice edition but I expect it to run out of stock right away, might buy it if there's some left and if the price isnt too absurd.

Australian GW site is now taking pre-orders, mine is in. biggrin.png

 

RP was $100 AUD.

 

Seven more to go. ermm.gif

 

Wow they are going for maximum money on something with a foregone conclusion. Is there anybody out there who is on the edge of their seats wondering how it ends? Unless they do a Star Trek Discovery...Rocks fall most people die.

 

The logic (nostalgia) for me?

 

It's been nearly 30 years since I saw this piece of artwork as a boy:

 

Horus-vs-the-Emperor-1990-1200x800.jpg

 

I'd previously been pulled in by the Rogue Trader rulebook, but it was that image that confirmed my enduring love of the 40K universe - The Emperor vs Horus, fighting for the rulership and future of mankind during the battle for Terra.

 

Until now it has only been described by reference and by background text, never through the eyes of the actors themselves.

 

I've been waiting 30 years.

 

That's a bit special; that's why I'm shelling out for the fancy books.

Wasnt it already stated that this would reveal the true story of the HH. Sanguinis defending the gate by himself and his selfless sacrifice are heavily entrenched in imperial propaganda. Russ already made a hole in Abaddon armor and psyche, which was the big thing that Sanguinis did. Plus there is the ever debatable, "did the guardsmen show up or not?".

I don't want them to take away Sanguinis and the BA big moment, but they must change it.

From the release article:

 

It’ll be available on the Black Library website from 10am GMT, and on the Games Workshop website at different times depending on where you are in the world.

 

UK: 10am GMT
US & Canada: 10am PDT
New Zealand: 10am NZT
Australia and Japan: 10am AWT

If you're keen I'd be waiting on the Black Library website at 10am GMT - six and a half hours from now.

The books are going up on both sites  - its been common practice for quite a while. You still have a chance when the BL opens at 10am GMT. 

 

As for me, I couldn't stand the uncertainty so I decided to get my copy from the Japan store. If you really wanted the book there are plenty of services in Asia that re-ships parcels to your location for an extra delivery fee.

I can't decide if I should try to get this, I've not been playing at all lately but the Horus Heresy has been with me since I was young but I'm unsure whether to try get this limited edition one or wait for normal.
