Radden, now there is a man who doesn’t shut up – through his own admission. Probably the least interesting and amazing book from truly talented and amazing author Guy Haley. Iv’e read much worse. Some like Bannick and Brasslock are very interesting but some of them are little more than one shot caricatures.
The desperate plight this massive, super heavy main battle tank has been put in is nearl This book was an unexpected surprise. There is a dichotomy that runs through this book.

Don’t miss out on Haley’s Stormlord short though! They’ve ranged from very good to great, so I had some pretty high hopes for Baneblade. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.
It’s not a bad book and has a good pace to it but I think this book has suffered from the sheer number of Warhammer 40k books I’ve read this year which is why it got a solid 3 rather than anything higher. Thankfully then, Guy Haley’s Baneblade — despite the title — is very much a human story.
There are some distinct caste systems there; and we see some of the workings of the extensive aristocrat clans. Stories about soldiers are always great reading but their is something special about the stories that involve soldiers and their vehicles, such as a tank, ship, or submarine.
I was a little disappointed with the story. I wasn’t disappointed when I read it. What I got was a coming of age story; featuring a young protagonist with a troubled past that happened to have a fair chunk of tank action in it For most of the book, we get a chapter set on Kalidar, then a flashback chapter to Paragon.

Resented by the mighty vehicle’s current crew as a newcomer, Bannick is forced to find common ground with them while struggling with his disgraceful past – revealed in a series of flashbacks – and defeat a powerful Ork war machine. Turns out, he killed his cousin in a duel biok self-defence and was dishonoured as a result.
Baeblade could not have been a better start to the novel, as the rest of the prologue continues to show. This one was a shell, bereft of tooth and claw, gaping ports where guns should be, tracks limp.
For me a fan of both the Guard and W40K it was an enjoyable book.

Now, remember earlier baneblads that I mentioned Gunheads? All in all a good read.

Baneblade | Haley’s Comment
After causing quite a stir back home following a duel gone wrong, he joins the Guard and is attached to a super-heavy group. I don’t think I will be trying the Eldar books anytime soon, and any Ork book would be full of captial letters and the descriptions of eating Ships from and sold by Amazon.
Must redeem within 90 days. The Adeptus Mechanicus are known for eschewing human emotions in favor of cold machine boo. The crew is not lacking all that much either.
The characters are deep and highly entertaining, as is the far away planet on which they battle. I love banwblade and this book fills a serious gearhead and epic war reader’s niche.
