A Horus Heresy audio drama
Infamous even among the mercenary
"Blackshields", former World Eater Endryd Haar and his warband face
trials that drive them to the brink of destruction as they try to
survive the Horus Heresy.
Renouncing fealty to all masters or driven mad by the rigours of war,
the Blackshields are a stain upon any Legion they once served. Regarded
as little better than pirates, their loyalty is only to themselves.
Infamous among their mercenary ranks is Endryd Haar, a former World
Eater, driven by hatred, his blade pledged to no banner but his own. But
estranged from his Legion and surrounded by a battered warband of
warriors, how long can Haar and his Blackshields hope to endure?

Sometimes, a story comes along that just seems to effortlessly 'sit right'; it feels good to say the words and reveal the narrative, the characters are well drawn and satisfying to play. The False War is such story in my opinion and I thoroughly enjoyed working on it and playing the rich and multi layered character, Endryd Haar. I must say, I'm pleased with the result and hope there'll be more to come - a series of Blackshields adventures would be fantastic I reckon. We shall see!
In other news this week: as from yesterday, 27th September, Black Library audiobooks have started to become available via audible.co.uk
I'm delighted that a number of the audiobooks I've recorded with Games Workshop are included in this initial release: Fabius Bile Primogenitor, Warlord: Fury of The God Machine, Blades of Damocles, Vaults of Terra: The Carrion Throne and The Horusian Wars: Resurrection.
I'm naturally interested to see what else might become available in future.
I'm still just about working at capacity in terms of book preparation and recording; next week, I'm recording a fantasy novel with full details to follow quite soon I think, as publication isn't too far away and earlier this week, I recorded an audio drama with Big Finish, which represented a bit of a milestone for me, as it was the 100th audio drama I've recorded with director Ken Bentley. Hard to believe really, but there it is - and what fun I've had with Ken and the whole Big Finish crew. Great thanks go to Ken and all at BF. The next milestone is a close run thing at the moment, between Nick Briggs at BF and Matt Renshaw at BL, although, I think Matt might just have the edge...
All details of current and future recordings and whatever else might come up, will be revealed here asap, but in the time honoured way, I'll wrap up by saying...
...all for now, more just as soon as it happens!
