Certified Grimdark

Excellent narration and production, immersive action throughout. "The Great Tomb" is a standout.

Title is wrong in the listing tho.

I've always loved the voice work of Toby Longworth and he totally shines in this collection, especially in "Glorious Tomb".

Amazing performance...the stories tho..

this was pretty fun to listen to and never boring. But some of the stories were very meh. but I would still recommend for a painting background book or if your working and not able to put your full attention to the book.

Would recommend

Some of the stories are better than others, but the performances are fantastic and the action scenes are great. My favorite ones are The Glorious Tomb, Daedalus, and Fireborn.

Absolutely Fantastic

I love the story and being able to listen to the dialogue, music and sound affects. It was almost like watching a movie in my head. My only complaint is that it was sometimes hard to listen to the narrator or characters speaking because of the music or sound affects being too loud. Apart from that I belt immersed into the world and the characters.

vignettes not for those newer to 40k

These snippet stories do very little to introduce you to all the terms and names. not friendly to someone who is newer to the 40k universe.

Great starter for anyone new to WH40K.

I loved every story and it reminded me a lot of the Astartes video series which if you haven't seen yet, you need too. The only issue I have is that we don't have more Adeptus Astartes Audio Collections like this.

Great stories, bad mixing

one of the best and worst features of this collection is the variety of voices and sound effects. well the addition of bolter fire in the background and the sound of servos and the where I am jet engines adds great ambience there are times where the audio mixing is poor and so these sounds overwhelm the actual narration.overall it's still a positive experience and I highly recommend it but that's something to take into consideration. it may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Fireborn, Taker of heads & Madness within

Fireborn, Taker of heads & Madness within where the best chapters in this collection from my perspective.

Performances where stunning in all stories though.
