Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer 40,000 audio drama collection.

The Imperial Guard represent the very best of mankind - its indomitable spirit, ordinary men and women refusing to give up in the face of all the horrors of the galaxy. 

Listen to it because: In this collection, you'll discover seven tales of the heroes of the Astra Militarum, from stalwart Elysian Sergeant Zachariah to the larger-than-life Commissar Cain.

The story: Across the war-torn galaxy, the Imperial Guard are a bastion against the enemies of mankind. From the elite veteran drop troops of Elysia to the fierce Catachan jungle fighters and from Valhalla's ice warriors to the crews of mighty battle tanks, the many regiments of the Astra Militarum defend the Emperor's realm against all who would tear it asunder. This audio drama anthology contains seven tales of the brave soldiers of the Astra Militarum. A three-part story delves into intrigue surrounding Sergeant Zachariah of Elysia as he faces traitors. Two outrageous adventures of the infamous Commissar Ciaphas Cain, Hero of the Imperium, take him and his warriors into danger after danger. A tank crew faces terror in real time, and Catachan Colonel Straken faces cultists on a jungle world.

FETHING CHILLS, COMRADES

Absolutely stunning. Brilliant stories and captivating performances. I was getting chills down my spine, perched on the edge of my seat, waiting to find out what happened next as the glorious audio engineering transported me to the grim, dark future of the 42nd millennium.

Out of this world adventure!!

I truly enjoyed this book because it offered me, a relatively new listener a valuable insight into other authors that write about the 40K universe, besides stories about my favorite 40K Commissar!

Too dramatic

This is the second full cast audiobook in this series I have listened to and I really don’t enjoy them, as good as the cast is they over power the story and I can’t engage with what is being told

Great story

Story was great
Voice acting amazing
Sound effects great
Would have liked more hours for the price if had bought in cash instead of credits. Other than that this is amazing.

the 4th story is

the 4th story is a bit slow to get going..... but once it does, its brilliant.

overall, all the stories are brilliantly read. the voice actors seem to have been well chosen - appropriate for the characters they're playing.

Good sound effects to back up the story as well.

How on earth did they manage this?

This audio book is so excellent if feels like you are watching a movie but not really, more like listening to it. Everything from sounds of props to the voice actors are movie grade. Awesome. They went through so much effort. It's amazing. Also the stories are very engaging and fun for a Warhammer fan. I so wish this was an actual movie and I could see everything that is going on but it's not all bad considering that the narrator describes all that is going on. Do not skip this!

Amazing

Really good collection of short stories. First three are basically one longer story. Another amazing job done with the sound track and performance full of power.
