Tallarn : Ironclad

The darkness beneath...
The battle for Tallarn rages between the traitor Iron Warriors and the Imperial Army. A carpet of armour covers the surface of the toxic planet: Dreadnoughts versus tanks versus Titans. But what secret purpose drives the Iron Warriors onwards to war?

Avec Tallarn : Ironclad vous allez en apprendre plus sur les forces s'affrontant sur Tallarn, mais l'impression que tout cela n'est qu'un apport superficiel à la saga donnera un manque de saveur à l’œuvre, comme si l’existence même de toute cette histoire n'était pas l...

The Crimson Fist

Stone and Iron
Becalmed in the backwater Phall system, the Imperial Fists’ relief fleet originally headed for Isstvan III has been waiting out the warp storms that waylaid them so many months ago. Under the assumed command of Captain Alexis Polux and seemingly forgotten by the rest of the Imperium, they hope yet to complete their mission and report back to their primarch Rogal Dorn, so that they might return to the greater conflict.

The remnants of the once mighty Jurnian 701st armoured regiment emerge from their underground shelters, and the opening movements of the Battle of Tallarn begin.

John French est très convainquant lorsqu’il s’agit de confronter de simples hommes manœuvrant des tanks, à des forces qui les dépassent. Un prologue qui augure du meilleur et tient ses promesses haut la main.
