Audio Drama - L'Hérésie d'Horus

Herald of Sanguinius

Audio Drama : 20 min
Crowned as the new Emperor of Imperium Secundus, Sanguinius of the Blood Angels faces the very real threat of betrayal from within his new realm. As ever, it falls to his Sanguinary Guard to protect the primarch, and Commander Azkaellon must resort to the most dire of measures.

The Herald of Sanguinius est donc un très bon divertissement mais qui par bien des aspects utilise la même construction que tous ses homologues audio drama avant lui. Dommage car le travail est vraiment la.


Audio Drama : 21 min
After returning from Calth and the Underworld War, Sergeant Aeonid Thiel is summoned before his primarch Roboute Guilliman. The fragile peace of Imperium Secundus is threatened by traitor warbands left behind by the Shadow Crusade, and a new order of battle must be written.

Stratagem poursuit l'histoire de Thiel de manière intelligente en y ajoutant en plus une base fluff, s'ancrant parfaitement dans l'arc d'Imperium Secundus avec cette histoire ayant vraiment sa place.

Garro : Shield of lies

Audio Drama : 130 min
While the war rages on across the galaxy, for many on the Throneworld of Terra it exists only in rumour and hearsay. But in the course of her daily duties, humble adept Katanoh Tallery discovers evidence of a conspiracy within the monolithic Administratum — surely, this can only be the precursor to a traitor attack on the Solar System itself! Fleeing into the shadows, she soon finds herself at the mercy of the mysterious Knight Errant Nathaniel Garro. Will this stalwart defender of mankind be her saviour, or her executioner?

Master of the First

Audio Drama : 36 min
The Dark Angels and the Night Lords fought one another to a bloody stalemate during the Thramas Crusade and, though the Lion eventually claimed victory, it left the First Legion scattered and under-strength. Back on Caliban, those Dark Angels loyal to Terra grow impatient for a return to past glories, nominating Chapter Master Astelan as their leader – meanwhile Jago Sevatarion, First Captain of the Night Lords, still languishes in a dismal gaol cell. Both must consider where their own personal loyalties lie, and what path they will take in the days to come.

Master of the First est juste un de ces audio qui ne fait que s'ajouter à une liste déjà longue. Je ne peux que vous conseiller d’ignorer cette nouvelle tentative de rendre honneur aux Dark Angels puisque le traitement qui leur est fourni n'est pas au niveau de plusieurs années d...


Audio Drama : 65min
On the doorstep of Holy Terra, the shadow of treachery still lurks. Upon a comet-shrine dedicated to the glory of Unity, a group of heretic Word Bearers prepare to return to the Solar System after being abandoned by their brethren – only the forces commanded by Sigismund, First Captain of the Imperial Fists, stand between the traitors and their goal. But will the legendary Templar’s skill at arms be enough to prevail over this new enemy, or will the doubt in his heart prove ultimately to be his undoing?

Un audio d'une rare qualité, d'une construction bien pensée pour ce format dont l'action omniprésente restera toujours bien rythmée. Avec Templar, vous apprendrez la réelle signification du titre de Champion et découvrirez l’allégorie même de l'univers médiéval-futuriste de...

Wolf's Claw

Audio Drama : 10min
Caught by the renegade forces of the Alpha Legion and forced to take refuge in the Alaxxes Nebula, the Space Wolves are bloodied but unbowed. The young pack leader Bjorn – now known to his warriors as ‘the One-Handed’ – is desperate to recover his honour in battle, but replacing lost limbs for proud legionaries is not a task worthy of the Iron Priests. If Bjorn is to fight again, then he must seek out new claws for himself and christen them in the blood of the traitors.

Court mais intense, vous vous devez d'écouter cet audio si vous êtes fan de Bjorn. Pour le reste, aucune surprise n'est à se mettre sous la dent concernant l'Hérésie d'Horus malheureusement mais Chris Wraight a définitivement le talent de faire vivre les Space Wolves.

The Long Night

Durée : 42min
The Dark Angels and the Night Lords fought one another to a bloody stalemate during the Thramas Crusade and, though the Lion eventually claimed victory, it left both Legions scattered and under-strength. Jago Sevatarion, First Captain of the Night Lords, languishes in a gaol cell in the heart of Ultramar. Far from a spent force, the Night Lords must consider where their loyalties lie, and what path they will take in the days and months to come.

The Long Night est un audio qui ne fait avancer en rien la trame des Night Lords, ni de la saga. En revanche, A.D.B. prouve une nouvelle fois son efficacité quel que soit le format. Le doublage est excellent et les surprises scénaristiques maîtrisées. L'auteur nous rappelle que Sevatarion...

Hunter's moon

Durée : 36min
As sanctioned executioners, the Wolves of Fenris were tasked with rooting out treachery at the heart of the Legions... but would they be capable of carrying out a death sentence upon one of the Emperor’s own sons? Now, a stolen Alpha Legion dropship crashes on the primitive oceanic world of Pelago, bringing news of a terrible war that has erupted out among the stars. Will the pursuing traitors, thirsty for vengeance, reach the lone survivor before his own battle-brothers can?

Hunter's Moon est un vieil audio, mais il est très honorable qu'il puisse encore de nos jours apporter quelque chose de différent. Comme quoi il est agréable d'avoir ses attentes bouleversées avec une histoire de pêcheurs. L'Hérésie par contre il faudra franchement oublier....

Khârn : The Eightfold Path

Audio Drama : 10min
In the fighting pits of the Conqueror, Khârn and his fellow World Eaters compete in ever-bloodier contests of carnage and mayhem. As the Butcher’s Nails dig ever deeper into their brains, the Legion have forsaken the Crimson Path. Now they walk a darker, more dangerous road: the Eightfold Path.

En très peu de temps, l'audio lève le voile sur le cap que prend de manière irrémédiable la XIIème Légion personnifiée par l’échec de Khârn. Anthony Reynolds nous propose un audio sympathique à l'écoute, rien de plus.

Thief of Revelations

Audio Drama : 30 min
The Thousand Sons – a Legion whose destiny was irrevocably altered at Prospero, and yet who now seem to dance only to fate’s tune. Ahzek Ahriman and Magnus the Red cast their psychic sight over the galaxy, seeking any clue as to what the future might hold and where their true allegiance should ultimately be placed.

Interlude non dissimulée pour le futur The Crimson King, Thief of Revelations nous gratifie d'un excellent travail qui mélange savamment ambiance sonore intelligente et récit captivant.
Le point de départ d'un nouveau fluff.
