Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer 40,000 audio drama collection.

Mankind rightly rules the galaxy - but there are many aliens who would see that reign end, from the savage orks to the subtle aeldari....

Discover the ways in which many of the Imperium's alien enemies wage war across a collection of full-cast audio dramas that showcase the aeldari, the orks and the T'au Empire.

Many are the xenos foes who plague mankind's Imperium. Ancient races which once ruled the galaxy, such as the aeldari and necrons, lurk in the darkness, awaiting their chance to reclaim what was once theirs. Younger races like the upstart T'au Empire grow in power and influence, ever eager to topple humanity and take their place. And across the galaxy, the savage orks wage brutal war, fighting all in their path simply for the joy of battle. This audio drama anthology contains eight tales of the aeldari, the orks and the T'au Empire. From the adventures of a greenskin mekaniak and his madcap entourage to a journey into a shattered aeldari craftworld and a tale of a war-damaged t'au bent on revenge, each of these immersive audio dramas will give you new insights into the aliens of the 41st Millennium.

Mostly good, recommendation for Xeno players.

Most stories were good, with 'Prophet of the Waaagh' being quite fun. Some had great voice acting in sounds, other were fine. only issues were the 4th and last book.

4th book follows our characters from the first story, but really drops the ball in voice acting. The deep, savage guttural speech was lost, and can be very distracting when all the characters sound like grots.

The final story was not as distracting, but is left open-ended, presumably to leave a game scenario in its place, thus not giving the listener an end.

overall, the collection is worth the read, dragged down only by these two examples.

not the best stories but the first orks great

So it was pretty hard even as someone who really enjoys the 40k universe to enjoy this series of books; The first set of ork books were great and the preformers were awesome! and the Tau one was slow, but interesting if you like the strategic mysteries like art of war; but the rest were pretty drawn out and uninteresting.

Good collection of short stories.

A nice spread of xenos stories. Tyranids are excluded from this which is fine. Lots of eldar stories but they seem to be a little weaker in the collection.

need's more necrons but good

the prophet of waahh made this worth the purchase. I love necrons so I was hoping to hear some stories from them. but it's nice to hear xenos stories. except that tau one was a little ridiculous.

Excellent quality short stories collection!

Mainly pick this up for the Orks but pleasantly satisfied with all stories. Excellent audio production too, not just regular unabridged stories!

I only enjoyed a couple of the stories.

it's always a risk with short stories as you may enjoy one and want it to last only to be cut for another story which brings the book down.

Great performances, stories just not for me.

The voice acting and sounds were great. I just struggled to enjoy the Eldar stories. the Orks were great though.

Cacophonous.

The sound effects drown out the reading (especially the Ork ones). The stories are a little boring (except for the Tau one). Definitely not recommended.
