I normally skim read prologues as they can be a bit weak but this one is fantastic. July 10, at 9: I give Baneblade by Guy Haley a 4 out of 5. And finally, there is the work that Haley put into creating Kalidar and Paragon as plausible locations.
Check A unique Baneblade as an integral focus? X-wing novels also qualify, given how well he describes aerial and space combat with the X-wings and other starfighters common to that era in the setting. To add on to that, the story flashes back to the time before the arrival to Kalidar in the first place. Commanded by Honoured Captain Cortein, who seems to be dead to the world in regard to personality.
Probably the least interesting and amazing book from truly talented and amazing author Guy Haley. This is an incredible read, exciting and action packed. Shadowsword Imperial Battle Tanks. The combat descriptions are amazing and you can open your mind and smell the sweat and the reactor burn. While that happens at the start the book quickly becomes more about the newest member the tank crew with a dark past that haunts him this is incredible boring and not what I want from a book about a tank with eleven gun barrels.
HachiSnax Reviews: Baneblade
The regiment raising is urgently needed to fight off a Ork horde which has besieged Kalidar IV, a planet in the middle of nowhere isn’t that always the case? In fact, you can preorder it on Amazon already.
The story are not as interesting as his other stuff and in general battles are bland – but that could be forgiven, after all – that was one of his first ‘not short story’ written type for BL. The story trots along nicely, the setting is baneblad evoked and the pay-off whilst not a shocker is nicely done. As we hear more from Bannick, he comes off as very religious.
After a battle in boko he loses everything but shows his courage, tank-commander Lieutenant Colaron Artem Lo Bannick, a disgraced member of his planet’s aristocracy, finds himself appointed to second in command of one of the Guard’s massive Baneblade super War rages across the dust-ravaged surface of Kalidar, as the humans of the Imperial Guard battle Ork invaders for supremacy.

This is a common problem with several Warhammer 40K Books and it is getting to be quite old. I hate this cover.
From the bok seat of a massive super-heavy tank-god. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. While you do get to see them being clever, well cleverer then they usually areI found it to be not any better than any other ork book I had read. Share your banrblade with other customers. Not what I was initially expecting but that didn’t end up being a bad thing. The orks are a very formidable foe and the planet itself, a desert world covered in deadly sandstorms, acts as a character itself.
Bnaeblade 03, Michael Dodd rated it really liked it. The other scene I enjoyed was when the Orks attacked the Guards base during a severe sandstorm. Unlike Brannick though, Cortein is bland, and as a result one of the main flaws of the book.
By the end of the novel, I was left wanting more, and while there is a tie-in short story StormlordI really want there to be a full-fledged sequel. I love the fact that the writer goes deep into the Warhammer 40K lore and the techpriests who pray over and revere these massive armored engines of war. But somewhere along the line he made a mistake, so shameful that he felt he needed to atone for his sin, and the only path open to him was leaving his life of luxury behind and joining the hard life of the Imperial Guard to fight to save the Empire.
A tank the size of a very-small fort. It’s been a very busy year or so for Haley, with his tenure at the Black Library starting off with three novels and a slew of shorts.

The problem is, the crew was not fleshed out nearly enough. It is a true spectacle, and I bok imagined it as a musical production sung entirely in binary. Join 2, other followers. Oct 30, Kevin Collett rated it liked it. As a piece of flash fiction that introduction would stand proudly aloft praising the Omnissiah. Some like Bannick and Brasslock are very interesting but some of them are little more than one shot caricatures.
Haley makes Baneblade a book worth reading every word. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics.
