But sometimes I run across a novel that stands bok the normally solid entertainment that this genre offers, and Baneblade is that book. For those unfamiliar with Warhammer: Baeblade order to read the books you have to understand the role and context of a commissar, tech-priest, lascannon, adeptus astartes, et al. Yet there are no good ways to learn what that stuff is other than by picking up a book or three and plowing through them.

That said, from the top the reader will need to either have a priori knowledge of the subject of the title or will have to endure boook ambiguity in order to learn. Understanding what the Imperial Guard is and how it fits into the Warhammer: Suffice it to say that the Warhammer: That said, I will at least fill in the context of the Baneblade.


It is a superheavy tank used by humans. A behemoth on the battlefield, it is one of the most powerful units in the game, and is in fact introduced not as part of the regular units but a special part where players break out the biggest of the big guns. An ancient machine that has survived in battle through a thousand years of fighting.

And while the reader is introduced to Mars Triumphant on the first page of the book, much of the novel focuses its attention on Lieutenant Colaron Artem Lo Bannick. Bannick is a young man born to an aristocratic caste. Wealthy beyond comprehension, he has whiled away his youth as most privileged young adults do: But somewhere along the line he made a mistake, so shameful that he felt he needed to atone for his sin, and the only path open to him was leaving his life of luxury behind and joining the hard life of the Imperial Guard to fight to save the Empire.

Haley masterfully zips the reader from setting to setting, starting with the birth of Mars Triumphant and then to the grit of war on the deadly wasteland planet of Kalidar.

Baneblade by Guy Haley – Book Review [Shadowhawk] « Black Library « The Founding Fields

The reader feels the cramped quarters that is the interior of the Baneblade. As enormous as the tank is, filled with crew and bok it stinks, bumps, and cuts its crew as they are jostled about the battlefield.


Haley relentlessly makes ever setting feel real, and his ability to make a superheavy tank both an extremely deadly instrument of war and yet vulnerable is a skill I can only marvel at. Imperial Guard fighting Orks as a boy grows into a warrior is hardly new material either for Warhammer: Haley makes Baneblade a book worth reading every word.
