An Oldhammer Bookclub: Storm Warriors (Orfeo Trilogy Part 3)



It has been a busy Easter weekend for me. None of it really hobby related... you see we have an allotment that has become a bit of a lifeline since the lockdown and I spent some days sorting that out and building a temporary greenhouse. I enjoy painting outside and I did tinker with a couple of my familiars ( I have four on the go) but the sun was too warm and the paint dried too fast!

One thing I did achieve was a further expedition into my enormous collection of 80s and early 90s Games Workshop. I discovered I owned a near mint first edition of Storm Warriors by Brian Craig, which came as a bit of a surprise! Dimly, you might recall I used to do a 'Book Club' style project here on RoC80s and chronicled my reading of the first two books in the Orfeo trilogy and their asociated WHFRP articles. I suspect that this book was bought to complete the project... and then forgotten. If you are interested, here are the links to the first two books in the series. Orlygg's Review of Zaragoz and Orlygg's Review of Plague Daemon

So I thought, why not complete the trilogy? If you have any of these classic novels (or anthologies) in your collection and you haven't got around to reading them... I heartedly recommend that you do. 

Expect a full review as soon as I finish the novel. 

Oh, and I love the cover! Those dark elves by Fangorn are classic!

  1. This is by far the weakest in the series. That said, it's still got some interesting bits that make it worth reading.

    1. I am enjoying it so far. A few chapters in and we have just met the mysterious elves. Loving the nostalgia you get from reading a first edition.

  2. I just got a new Oldhammer read. I found an unpunched copy of The Tragedy of McDeath in a 'Free Books' box at a flea market. The box is beat up and there's no button but it seems otherwise complete.

    1. My favourite of the second edition scenarios and quite different Albion to this novel.

    2. I don't know if I should keep it or sell it. It has the sheets of cardboard minis so I kinda feel like I should photocopy them and try playing it but, of course, that's not going to happen during this current Time of Nurgle.

  3. Dear Orlygg, I have read both previous posts and the one of oldhammer novels in general. I liked them all very much. I am waiting for more. I am currently re-reading "Konrad" trilogy in Polish. Good to have you back.

    1. Glad to hear you are a fan of these old novels. Expect to see a full write up this book as soon as I have finished it. I think I am going to look at the Konrad Saga next, so stay tuned for that. I will be interested to hear your thoughts about those novels.

  6. I never thought I will smile again, My husband left me with two kids for one year, All effort to bring him back failed I thought I'm not going to see him again not until I met a lady called Jesse who told me about a spell caster called Dr Uzo She gave me his email address and mobile number and I contacted him and he assured me that within 48hours my husband will come back to me, In less than 48hours my husband came back started begging for forgiveness saying it is the devils work, so I'm still surprise till now about this miracle,i couldn't conceive but as soon as the spell was cast, I became pregnant and gave birth to my third child, if you need any assistance from him you can contact him via:email: druzospellcaster@gmail.com or whatsApp +2348152195263.
