Should go for Caiphus Cain instead - then we'd get a Flashman TV series at long last.  ;)

I hope it's better than that Ultramarines film. What am I saying? It would have to be.

Allow me to congratulate you on your intelligence and good taste. I wish I had the same foresight.

Here's Frank Spotnitz talking [rather too quietly] about his plans for a W40K TV show. Audio quality is not the best. https://youtu.be/6XPzMr_Mia0

Can anyone recommend a good introductory book to the Warhammer world?

Can anyone recommend a good introductory book to the Warhammer world?

There's an awful lot going on with the Warhammer 40k but I'd suggest one of the following:

Gaunts Ghosts: The Founding - 40k from a more human point of view, written by the boards beloved Dan Abnett. Very exciting in places. There's tons of these Guant books and they get worse as they go along but the first 5 or so are worth a read.
Abnett's books are generally a good bet, his Eisenhorn books are also highly rated and if you wanted to go back into the Heresy era Horus Rising or Prospero Burns are good reads.

Storm of Iron - basically a book about a massive battle between Space Marines. Some characters reappear from other books but as a stand alone book it doesn't require much background knowledge.

Soul Hunter - written about a bunch of traitor marines from the Night Lord legion. A bit more steeped in the lore, but this is one of if not the best 40k book I've read. Atmospheric and a great take on the motivations of the bad guys of 40k who too often are a bit moustache-twirly caricatures.

I started reading the Horus Heresy series over lockdown - I'm 33 books in and it's a bit of a slog at times, so I'd definitely suggest cherry picking stuff you're interested in as the Black Library quality is wildly variable and covers all sorts of time periods and different races.

Thank you, this is perfect.

Someone else recommended Gaunt's Ghosts but I mistakenly thought it was a standalone book; I'll look forward to getting stuck in.

Ooh, Eisenhorn would make a good grimdark demon-of-the-week style cop show alright.

Eisenhorn- first book is great. Second and third are just the same thing all over again.

That's how much you have to pay for a single land raider nowdays.
