    One thought on “Roboute Guilliman: Lord of Ultramar”

    1. Review also published hereRoboute Guilliman: Lord of Ultramar is pretty much what I expected and wanted out of the Primarchs series. It offers a closer look on Guilliman, pre-Heresy, giving him time with his Legion before the events of Calth and Imperium Secundus - something that was sorely lacking up to this point.First off, the book is structured in a very neat way. Each of the nine chapters is presented with an interlude, taken from Roboute Guilliman's treatises and reflections on war, cultur [...]

    2. Ah the Primarchs! Such hugely iconic figures that the Heresy really brought to life for the first time, and now they have their own spin-off series, in which this is the first book.Now, initially, I thought it a bit of an odd choice, considering the overall "vanilla flavor" the Ultramarines have in general, but having finished it, I think it works out pretty Damn Well.Why not start with the poster boys of the 41st millennium? Here we get to see the Ultramarines really at their prime, conquering [...]

    3. When embarking on a new series, the first step is always the most difficult. Luckily David Annandale leaps to it with gusto. For an age, fans have clamoured for a Primarchs series; a concept which is laden with its own potential pitfalls. Would they be simple origin stories, when we've already touched on them so repeatedly in the main narrative? Would they be blown up versions of classic lore and errata? These issues are sidestepped with an opening that is both novel and traditional, acknowledgi [...]

    4. I was sooo excited about this book , I expected it to give more insight into the character of Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines. My expectations were not met, the book is mostly about the battles on Thoas and eradicating the green skins and that didn't add anything to my knowledge about the primarch and boy that was disappointing. I was hoping for more events from his previous life, his human father, maybe some interaction with the Emperor which is always welcome ( in my opinion ) Another th [...]

    5. Pretty good! Not what I was expecting but enjoyable because of it. Any one interested in Ultramarines needs to read this.

    6. You likely already know if you'll enjoy this book before even reading my (or any) review.Not having read any Warhammer 40k fiction before, but knowing how ridiculous and over-the-top the universe is (in a fun way, usually) I was fully expecting this to be filled to the brim with testosterone-infused macho bullshit. I wasn't entirely wrong: "He sprayed a wide arc of the ground before the Proteus with the double-timed hammering of his shells. Mass-reactive warheads punched into the bodies of the g [...]

    7. Good. In fact, wonderful. I loved that clearly DA read other DA’s novel - Know No Fear, and modeled his Ultramarines after Abnett’s. I loved their Theoreticala and Practical speech patterns and thought process. Something I thought Abnett added to the sons of Ultramar that gave them a little more personality. This novel and hopefully this series proved to be a great side or companion piece to the HH series. I am excited about Russ. Recommend if you like the Horus Heresy, Ultramarines, bolter [...]

    8. Forgettable, formulaic, stereotype characters, forced drama, some genuine character development, shoe-horned product placements in the form of specific unit types.In short, if you want a good Annandale 30/40K story, look elsewhere. This is just a cash cow at this point. Hope he made good money filling a slot that BL had open. Any book about any primarch will sell to a now-captive audience.

    9. You can read the full review over at my blog:shadowhawksshade.wordpressOne of the most fascinating appeals of the Horus Heresy series from Black Library is that we get to learn so much of the backstories of the various Primarchs who led the Space Marine Legions during the Great Crusade and the destructive civil war that followed. Horus, Corax, Guilliman, Angron, Lorgar and Sanguinius have had some of the most intriguing lore-reveals and now Black Library has taken all of that a step further with [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book immensely - the pacing was great, the characters were well thought out, and it fits well into the larger WH40K universe. The battle scenes were in line with my high expectations for a Space Marine focused novel / novella.The real star is obviously the titular character and I feel like the work takes his persona and runs with it. Having only been previously exposed to Guilliman in Know No Fear, I was excited to learn more about the character and I feel like the author did a gr [...]

    11. This was okay. Good enough for a filler story you'd casually read in between the major ones. Not good enough for something titled with a Primarch's name. I believe these books should've let us look closer at each Primarch and show us exactly who they are, I don't think this one really does that. It was not bad though.

    12. Finished the first novel in the newish Primarch series from Black Library, starting with one of my favourites: Roboute Guilliman - Lord of Ultramar. Set some time after the destruction of Monarchia, detailed in The First Heretic (from the Horus Heresy series), but also prior to the great civil war itself we find a Primarch who is at odds with himself. David Annandale showed a slightly different Guilliman, one who was haunted by his role as Lorgar's chastiser and wanted nothing more than to have [...]

    13. Black Library begins a new, eighteen part series based on the fabled Space Marine Primarchs with Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines. Written by David Annandale, this novel is set years before the Horus Heresy, at the height of the Great Crusade.What has been long seen by fans as a vanilla, or even boring Space Marine faction was given new and rich character by Dan Abnett in the Horus Heresy novel Know No Fear. Here the doctrine of the analysis of theoreticals and practicals to deal with the i [...]

    14. This book has a tremendous writing style, only fitting for the epic scale of the planetary assault that takes place over the course of the novel. However, once on the surface, there is not much that happens to the Ultramarine battle-brothers. Or rather, nothing unexpected. Though the reader is entertained by nearly 200 pages of war and slaughter, there is not really much that keeps him thrilled and makes him want to read on, waiting for a big mystery to be solved or something like that. I still [...]

    15. As a book about a primarch I did wish for some more insight into Roboute's character. Although we do get some of it in this book I feel it could use some more. The battle between the Ultramarines and the orks takes place for a majority of the book, but it's just not nearly as interesting as Guilliman's dialogue and rumination, which I think should feature more in the book. The story also hints at a mystery in the middle of the book, which I feel could, and should, be explored more and expanded u [...]

    16. Theoretical:This was a pretty formulaic Warhammer book, with a typical plot - Ultramarines vs Orks - with a hint of grimdark, which a trademark for the setting and some interesting insights about the legendary primarch Guilliman.Practical:It was tons of fun, with lots and lots of awesome action, short and sweet and I enjoyed it tremendously. Five stars.Review in Bulgarian here:citadelata/lord-of-ultramar/

    17. I was expecting more. Plus I felt that some of it didn't really add up especially with how I understand the Ultramarines act and behave in concern toward order and most especially their primarch.

    18. Bolter porn 😴I enjoy bolter porn as much as the next 40K junkie, but I'd expected something with a lot more substance for the first book in a series on the Primarchs' pre-heresy days.

    19. The “Warhammer 40,000” universe created by Games Workshop and it’s licensed fiction division Black Library is populated by many fascinating figures, but some of the most compelling are the 18 genetically engineered “sons” the God Emperor of Mankind built to lead his super soldier armies, the Adeptus Astartes AKA the Space Marines. In the current 41st Millenium timeline of 40K many of these demigod like Space Marine Primarchs are missing, dead, or have been transformed into demonic bein [...]

    20. This is a Horus Heresy novel, and is set before the events of the actual betrayal. I read this in one sitting because it is not a large book. The Ultramarines are my favorite Space Marine chapter and they are represented well in this book. This novel starts off with Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines leading his sons to the Ork held planet of Thoas, to destroy the greenskins. The full might of the legion is brought to bear here, with the exception of a single deployment chapter, cal [...]

    21. The entire novel clearly showed the essence of Roboute Guilliman. A Primarch who values wisdom gained from putting into practice one's ideals and theories. Thereafter, allowing said theory to be changed based on the outcome of one's practice. As such, he is truly a student of war. A perfect replica of Sun Tzu.Because of the above, I truly had fun reading the book. I also loved the way the author used the Orks as the anti-thesis of what the Ultramarines stood for especially in the theater of war [...]

    22. David Annandale’s Roboute Guilliman: Lord of Ultramar kicks The Horus Heresy – The Primarchs off with a look at the XIIIth Legion…the Ultramarines. Set during the Great Crusade this isn’t an origin story for Guilliman, instead it sees him leading his legion against the final remnants of an ork empire on the planet Thoas. Not everyone’s going to get on with this depiction of the legion, but there’s plenty to enjoy in the simple pleasures of a well constructed and written story.Read th [...]

    23. I continued to read this because there was an apparent mystery, hinted at one-third of the way through, which turned out to be not that big of a deal.This is one of Annandale's better stories but he repeats words too often very quickly. For example, "Concussion arrived. Guilliman arrived." Little things like that ruined the flow of the story for me as my mind focused on the repetition more than the actual content.

    24. Was expecting this to be more of an origins story. Rather, it focuses on a seemingly arbitrary pre-Heresy military engagement. The story does highlight the Legion's battle tactics, traditions, and mindset (e.g. theoretical/practical) which may well be the purpose of this new Series. That said, this was an enjoyable read and comes Recommended - looking forward to reading the next series entries.

    25. I enjoyed this book, it was what I look for from the Primarchs series. To expand on the lore of the primarchs and their legions during the Horus Heresy. I felt the author did a solid job at elaborating upon Guilliman and his Ultramarines legion.

    26. If this very average novella is indicative of what the Primarchs series of novels will be, they won't be worth the money or the hype.
