As you know Gotrek & Felix is heading towards quite the scuffle in the frozen North of the Old World and the cover art for their next adventure, Kinslayer, has been revealed by Black Library

Kinslayer Cover

It looks like their dangerous opponent is going to be none other than Throgg the Troll King himself…

Some time has passed since the events of Zombieslayer and our heroes have gone their separate ways: Felix and Kat have returned to the Empire to try and build some kind of a life, Snorri has been left to the tender mercies of Grimnir’s priesthood, and Gotrek… Well, for Gotrek there can be nothing but his own doomed quest.

The story sees Felix’s dreams of a quiet retirement shattered by the outbreak of war. Chaos forces are rampaging through Kislev and an old friend has been taken captive. Reluctant perhaps, but still the hero, Felix dons his Sudenland wool cloak and straps on Karaghul once more to fight his way north. As he goes, he is forced to face a monster to whet the bloodlust of any Trollslayer, and to confront aspects of Gotrek’s and Snorri’s past that should perhaps have remained hidden.

I love that they are continuing the flow of the main slayer series and it will be interesting to see how dangerous this next trip is going to be. In true Warhammer Fantasy fashion I don’t think either Gotrek or Felix should get out of their fatalistic doom without a major scratch or two.

What do you think of the art?
