Some pics from the BL website





Fracture of Biel-Tan is the second book in the Gathering Storm series. This eBook edition introduces the Triumvirate of Ynnead – The Visarch, Sword of Ynnead; Yvraine, Emissary of Ynnead and The Yncarne, Avatar of Ynnead – and chronicles the desperate battle to determine the future of the Eldar, and an uneasy alliance that will potentially dictate the fate of the galaxy.

Though they long ago learned how to stave off the vile attention of She Who Thirsts – known as Slaanesh in the tongues of men – the Time of Ending yet tightens its grip on the Eldar. No matter the methods they use to escape the notice of the god who haunts them, the Eldar sacrifice much in the process.

Some Eldar refuse to abandon the glorious dream of building their ancient empire anew – or at least burning brightly before the end. Eldrad Ulthran, High Farseer of Craftworld Ulthwé, puts into place a plan to bring forth Ynnead, the slumbering God of the Dead. A daemonic host assaults Biel-Tan, corrupting its infinity circuit. Unlikely alliances are formed in the face of desperation. And the Gathering Storm darkens over the entire galaxy…

– Seven datasheets, covering new characters Yvraine, the Visarch & the Yncarne plus the Black Guardians of Ulthwé
– Five new formations, including the Triumvirate of Ynnead
– Two detachments – the Reborn Warhost, combining Craftworlds, Dark Eldar, Harlequins and the new Ynnari into a single force, and the Ulthwé Strike Force
