SHADOW OF THE EIGHTH (PAPERBACK)

A Minka Lesk Novel


As Cadia burned, one young recruit rose to prominence. Now a respected captain, Minka Lesk and her Cadian 101st are on a mission to track down the missing 8th Regiment on a nightmarish war-wracked planet.


READ IT BECAUSE


The next chapter in Minka Lesk's saga after her battles in Traitor Rock explores both the horror and glory of the Cadian legacy in a violent galaxy.


THE STORY


The forces of Cadia struggle ever onward, desperate to avenge the destruction of their home world and prove that even in the wake of profound loss, they remain the exemplars of the Astra Militarum.


When Minka Lesk and the Cadian 101st discover a relic of the missing Cadian 8th – thought lost in the planet’s defence – they see an opportunity to right a past wrong, and follow the trail to Telken’s Rest, a world at the core of the Chaos warlord Drakul-zar’s collapsing regime.


But the Imperium are not the only force to pounce upon the carcass of Telken’s Rest, and Minka soon discovers that there are dark secrets hidden amidst the icy sprawl of hab blocks and manufactoria. As the past comes back to haunt them, the Cadian 101st face a choice – will they stand firm and do what needs to be done, or will the spectre of what they have lost lead them astray?

He's depicted phasing through space itself, and portions of his body and wargear are already dematerialised into streamers of energy that swirl around him. One of his folded arms carries a deadly hyperphase blade, while the other clutches a resurrection orb. His metallic body is covered in Necrontyr glyphs, as well as mechanical details such as the power nodes that fuel the translocation shroud.This kit comprises five plastic components and comes with a Citadel 40mm Round Base.
