The Glorious Black Templars

An intriguing and oddly emotive POV of a Dreadnought in the build up to war. Highly recommended for Wh40k buffs.

Exciting

Loved the narration. The story of the dreadnought is truly inspiring. You feel like you are inside the dreadnought itself. An amazing experience

Black library story that makes you care

The story follows a Black Templar Dreadnought from being awaken, planetary assault and storming a Ork Stronghold on that most unlucky of planets, Armageddon. What makes this story a stand out from most Black Library stories is not only the fact we get to hear what it's like to be entombed into a Dreadnought which is worth listening to in itself but the ending which is fantastic and pulls off something a lot Black Library book fail to do in making me actually caring about the protagonist, this is helped by Toby Longworth spot on performance. Also Orks are treated as a actual threat in the story and not just dim witted baffoons to be gunned down in thousands to make the Space Marines look Cool. I wish more of the Black Library author's did this, it something so simple that a good action story needs in that the enemy should be a threat. Well worth a listen.

Glorious yet brief.

Great for anyone who loves the Templars or has ever been curious of dreadnoughts. A great lore hound short.

Rest now

A day in the life of an imperial Dreadnought and the reward it brings after years of service.

Best of Warhammer

Super immersive. I loved the sound effects especially. If your mental image of 40k is based on Dawn of War: II then this is for you.

Great story

Much better than the typical boltporn, only frustrating part is when you have someone talking through static with a thick accent and the noise of gunfire, it’s completely unintelligible.

one of my favorites

an oldie but a goodie. this particular audio drama has a few levels to it that, after listening, need a little unpacking. it's a beautiful work, especially the ending which sheds some light on the utter inhumanity of Space Marines (particularly a Dreadnaught) in comparison to normal humans. Praise Be!
