iv seen this name around the site and i am very intesed in what this book is about
is it a book of a comic and did you like it?
be careful when posting plz as i dont want any spoilers:excl:
Storm of Iron is a book about the Iron Warriors Legion assault on an Imperial Planet (I think being defended by the Imperial Fists?). It's not a graphic novel or comic book, just a regular book. BUT it is a very good read, and gives you a good feel for the Iron Warriors, it's what made me want to play Chaos (after my Tyranids are done, or at least 2000 pts ).
i had a look for it on the GW and black library sites but i cant find it
where did you get your copy?
i hope they still print it
doubt you will be able to find it new, eBay is your best bet, I bought it for $10 w/shipping a couple months ago

they really dont print this book anymore, how sad is that
if the author puts so much work in writing a book for 40k fans then why should the black library
stop printing it
its just not fair
Amazon have it:
Otherwise try your local bookstore, they might have it or be able to order it in.

I didn't much care for it myself. It had a lot of potential but, without saying too much, I found the deck was stacked rather high against one side.

This book is one of my all-time favorite fluff-novels. And take it from me, that's saying alot (I own all the novels... :shifty: ) Anyway, I love this book, for many reasons. Here's the main 2:
1. It was one of the first to have an extended view of the chaos side, and it's perspective on things. Not just the "good guys".
2. It's one of the ABSOLUTE ONLY novels that accuratley depicts all aspects of a war between chaos and the Imperials. Mere men have no chance against marines and chaos marines. The novel accuratley depicts the prowess of chaos marines. There are no messed up completely ridiculous scenes with marines of any sort just getting mowed down by bolter fire or loyalist marines dispatching their 10,000 year old bretheren with ease... No. It's a hard fight for both sides, the chaos marines just that little bit tougher... But come on! They are 10,000 years old! And have seen more battles than the freaking chapter masters of most loyalist legions... And this book actually factors in that battle experience...
Not like other novels... that I particularly HATE for their fluff inaccuracies...
*cough* *cough* *cough* *cough*
Yay! 300 Blood Angels have died! But don't worry! It only took a company of us to kill thousands of cultists and like 3x our number of chaos marines with minimum casualties in the first book!
And Jonathan Green's second Armageddon book...
And the Chosen of Angron stepped through the portal, each one as strong as a chaos lord (he said this) and they preceded to wade into the orks... And then later some random squad leader loyalist marine cuts of the leaders head with a khorne weapon he picked up... that's it... Super bad guy and his retinue of like 40 "khorne lords" dead just like that... Veteran of the 1st war of Armageddon, and one of Angron's generals... Just killed by some tactical squad leader... In a single line of print...
EDIT: Sorry about all that ranting it's 2 in the morning and I just got home from work... And I have to get up early...
its the BEST 40k Novel ever written. and the sequel will be even better.
I liked it, but not as much as the second part, Dead Sky Black Sun, with the renegades and ****..
