A new Warhammer Online (almost Fantasy Battle) based book from C L Werner
Mythic and GW have very different takes on this book, check out these comments...
"FORGED BY CHAOS provides readers with a horrific look into the warped minds of the soldiers of Destruction - the megalomania of the Dark Elves, the destructive single-mindedness of the Greenskins, and the unholy obsessions of Chaos", said Jeff Hickman, Studio Executive Producer for Mythic Entertainment. "C.L. Werner provides a never-before-seen look at a single side of the Realm vs. Realm conflict, and shows just how fragile, and deadly, this alliance of dark powers can be."
from Games Workshop:-
"All across the the Empire, the servants of Emperor Karl Franz's Griffon order are struggling to turn back the armies of Chaos. Two such heroes the witch hunter Udo and the warrior priestess Annaliese are caught up in the conflict as they journey into Reikland in trying to aid the war effort. At Altdorf, the capital of the Empire, the warriors of Karl Franz must make their stand lest all the land be lost to Chaos."
I kept having to check that I was reporting the correct news and it was the same book ! Mythic do go on to say...
"...the Raven Host of Chaos is poised to march upon the Empire of Man in an unstoppable tide. To ensure victory against the Emperor's Order of the Griffon, an elite party of Chaos warriors is tasked with the quest to find the Spear of Myrmidia and fully unleash the power of the Winds of Chaos."
Which sounds a bit more like the Chaos / Empire war that the GW version speaks of.
It's in the new releases section of GW's site under "books" for $7.99 US or £6.99 in the UK.
