This weekend saw the big preview from Games Workshop for Black Library and what’s coming up during 2022. There were some fun reveals for both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age Of Sigmar as well as The Horus Heresy.

The first reveal we’re looking at was for The Horus Heresy with Saturnine becoming available in paperback. This focuses in on terrible fighting around the perimeter of the Emperor’s Palace.

As well as that, you can also pick up a nice looking artefact. You can pick up a map showing The Defence Of The Lion’s Gate. This means you can keep an eye on where all the action is taking place.

I like this but I can’t begin to imagine what it is going to cost. In-world artefacts are fun and possibly good presents for fans of The Horus Heresy who have everything.

Warhammer 40,000 Novels

A long time after the clashes of The Horus Heresy we also have a bunch of new (and returning) releases for the grimdark of Warhammer 40,000. For example, Eisenhorn returns with Xenos and an illustrated AND annotated edition.

Eisenhorn Xenos Illustrated Edition - Black Library

Eisenhorn: Xenos Illustrated Edition // Black Library

Delve back into this impressive series (that is SO getting turned into a TV series at some point, right?) and experience it with stunning artwork and more to sink your teeth into.

Keeping with the theme of inquisitors, we also have the next instalment in the Ravenor Rogue series.

Ravenor Rogue - Black Library

Ravenor: Rogue // Black Library

You’ll be following Ravenor as he looks to hunt down Zygmunt Molotch. This spin-off series that expands the Eisenhorn storyline will be landing as a special signed edition complete with maps and more. Another present for the grimdark fan who has everything?

Next up, we have some Space Marine novels! There is the new anthology, The Successors as well as a book following the mighty Sigismund.

Sigismund The Eternal Crusader - Black Library

Sigismund: The Eternal Crusader // Black Library

Some great options for those wanting to delve into the history of one of the greatest characters in the Imperium and look at some of those Chapters that might not get a look in very often.

Capping off things for the Imperium, we also have The Triumph Of Saint Catherine which follows a Battle Sister as she learns more about this ancient relic…

…and another that I think is awesome. Assassinorum Kingmaker seems like a fascinating book full of political intrigue as two assassins try to change the fate of a planet.

For fans of Chaos, you’ve also got a book themed around Huron Blackheart as he deals with foes within his own ranks…

…and Ahriman Eternal where the sorcerer is seeking to undo the terrible curse he laid on his Legion.

This book comes with all sorts of gubbins for you to play around with. Some of them are elements that directly link into the story as you solve riddles and uncover secrets just like Ahriman.

Warhammer Age Of Sigmar Novels

Heading to the Mortal Realms, Gotrek leads the way with a new entry in the series called Soulslayer.

Soulslayer - Black Library

Soulslayer // Black Library

Soulslayer follows Gotrek and Maleneth as he strives to follow through on his newfound sense of purpose. The Idoneth Deepkin, fans of stealing souls, have noticed just how bright Gotrek’s burns so are looking to claim it for themselves. I sense a classic clash between Aelves and Duardin.

We also have a book focused on Kragnos himself. Learn all about his mighty schemes and how much he wants to break stuff!

Kragnos Avatar Of Destruction - Black Library

Kragnos: Avatar Of Destruction // Black Library

There is also a fun one for fans of witch-hunting and monster slaying.

Hallowed Ground - Black Library

Hallowed Ground // Black Library

Hallowed Ground follows the Ven Denst family as they look to stop a terrible threat that is looming in the shadows after the siege of Excelsis.

New Miniatures

A couple of miniatures are also on the way for fans of The Horus Heresy. Making a name for themselves during The Siege Of Terra, this pair of imperial heroes are going to be popping up in plastic (yes, plastic!)

Fafnir Rann of the Imperial Fists and Dominion Zephon of the Blood Angels Legion are going to be popping up as part of the Black Library celebration in February next year.

Fafnir Rann is a scion of strength and endurance and formed part of the defence of the Lion’s Gate Spaceport.

Dominion Zephon found himself broken before the Siege Of Terra but was brought back to fighting strength by the one and only Arkhan Land.

Dominion Zephon #1 - Black Library

Dominion Zephon // Black Library

Dominion Zephon #2 - Black Library

He battled alongside the Adeptus Custodes, joined Malcador The Sigillite in his clashes and inspired the soldiers of the Imperium to greater feats of heroics on the battlefield.

So, quite a lot of books for you to snap up next year if you were so inclined!
