The Skull Harvest

By: Graham McNeill

Honsou is on New Badab in the heart of the Maelstrom with the intention to win the Skull Harvest, a contest between warbands where the champions of said warbands fight each other to determine which leader gets control of each other's men. Only one warband can survive and Honsou intends to be the victor... with the ultimate aim of leading a new army into the heart of Ultramar.

Gauntlet Run

By: Chris Roberson

An Imperial Fists Scout bike squadron are pursued across a desert by Ork Speed Freaks. It's a trap!

Renegades

By: Gav Thorpe

Amidst heavy casualties and combat unceasing, a number of Space Marines of the Avenging Sons chapter - currently on "penitence patrol" due to previous dishonourable actions - grow disillusioned with their role in the quelling of a global uprising and decide upon a most rebellious course.

Honour Among Fiends

By: Dylan Owen

Scaevolla, a veteran of the Great Heresy, Black Legion champion and squad-leader, is compelled to seek out and duel the genetic descendants of his once-friend and eventual enemy, Captain Alpeh of the Imperial Fists. As much as he enjoys such hunts, he also despairs at his personal, seemingly eternal role in the Long War, apparently blinded to the easy way out by his Chaotic masters...

Fires of War

By: Nick Kyme

This story tells of an encounter by the Salamanders Space Marine Chapter battling Chaos forces and the Dragon Warriors Chaos Space Marines.

The Labyrinth

By: Richard Ford

A Chapter of Renegade Space Marines, the Sons of Malice, gather on a space hulk for traditional slaughter and competition.

Headhunted

By: Steve Parker

A Deathwatch Kill-Team of Space Marines board an Ork ship on a mission to recover the head of a Weirdboy Warboss.

And They Shall Know No Fear...

By: Darren Cox

Stygia XII has turned from the Emperor’s light, gripped by the dark powers of Chaos. Castellan Reinhart and his warriors arrive on the world, greeted by representatives of the Inquisition and the Sisters of Battle. But are the Black Templars on Stygia to help the beleaguered defenders, or for their own sinister motives?

Nightfall

By: Peter Fehervari

On the world of Sarastus, the True Night has fallen. Young men take part in a Chaotic ritual that they don't truly understand, but one thing is for certain: the only victors will be the traitorous Night Lords.

One Hate

By: Aaron Dembski-Bowden

Renowned as some of the staunchest defenders of humanity, surely it is inconceivable that marines of the Crimson Fists Chapter would ever shrink from bringing death to the Emperor's enemies? In the wake of the Battle of Rynn's World, however, priorities may have changed for these sons of Rogal Dorn. Is the future of the beleaguered Chapter more important than the hate of the foe that provides their honour? On the battlefields of Syral, Chaplain Argo finds himself facing that dilemma.
