Tales from Vigilus 01- To Kill a Dark King

I recently received an e-mail from the crew over at Games Workshop, there was to be news of some free to read short stories… Of coarse I decided to click and check it out… What transpired was a downloadable seven page short with no author mentioned. I am not up to speed of what Vigilus exactly is, but it’s 40K so I am going to read anything I can (and it is free…).

I believe these short stories are used as some back story as to the setting. From what I gather, Vigilus is either a planert, or, a certain sector of the galaxy within the 40K setting. To Kill a Dark King follows an assassin called Emeret Klotec on a mission to take out a person or entity that bares with it a certain global/ interstellar threat. That is as much as I am going to say about the short story. I enjoyed reading and getting to know new parts of the 40K setting. There is always so much potential within it.

Seeing as this is only a seven page short story, I will not be rating it as I do with my book reviews. I will, however, share the link where it is available to read on the Warhammer Community site. Feel free to check it out and see if you like it. Expect the forces of the Imperium going up against all sorts of xenos threats. I will see if I can cover some more stories as I work through them slowly.

  1. I’ve been meaning to check those short stories out myself, as it happens! Vigilus is the current battleground for the majority of the factions in 40k – when 8th edition landed in 2017, it was with the news that the galaxy has been split in two by a massive warp storm, and Vigilus is strategically located at the safest crossing point between the halves. Exciting stuff, anyway!
