Relic teases Dreadnought DLC for Space Marine in January
Posted: 24.12.2011 16:55 by Comments: 13
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine fans are excited as Relic Entertainment has posted a tweet stating, "We have a big metal surprise coming to @SpaceMarine in January – Merry Christmas from Relic!", accompanied by an image of a Space Marine fighting what appears to be a Dreadnought.


For those of you unfamiliar with the Warhammer 40,000 universe, a Dreadnought is a mech that is powered and controlled by the barely alive corpse of an elite Space Marine who has fallen in battle.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine was released in September to generally positive reviews. Strategy Informer's review awarded the third person shooter a 7.5/10 score.

You have to wonder what Space Marines think when they see a Dreadnought. "That could be me someday."

I really like this universe eventhough i'm largely unfamiliar with it outside of the PC games.

There's a huge overwhelming library of work so i'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on which core books one would absolutely need to read. I mean the core canon works, if there even is such a thing.

I'd recommend starting with the following, then proceed as you get drawn in:
False Gods
Horus Rising
Warrior Brood
Warrior Coven
Dawn of War
Farseer

Gaunts Ghosts(in this order):

-First and Only
-Ghost Maker
-Necropolis
-Honor Guard
-Guns of Tanith
-Straight Silver
-Sabbat Martyr
-Traitor General
-His Last Command
-Double Eagle (not Ghosts, but Ghost side characters, like the uber awesome Major Leguin)

Eisenhorn(in this order):

-Xenos
-Malleus
-Hereticus
-Ravenor(Read Ravenor novels only after the Eisenhorn ones)
-Ravenor Returned

Simple Collection:
WARHAMMER 40,000: IMPERIAL GUARD: REDEMPTION CORPS
WARHAMMER 40,000: BLOOD GORGONS
WARHAMMER 40,000: GAUNT'S GHOSTS OMNIBUS: THE FOUNDING

I kinda knew i should not ask for it :)

Thanks i'll store the list fo future reference, it seems really helpful. I love the Warhammer world i've experienced so far, but was always kinda afraid to dig deeper when i saw there are hundreds of titles.

Hehe.
Gamersworkshop magazines are good to flick through. I got a special edition on The Space Wolves from someone, and while I don't play miniatures it was still interesting.

The Lexicanum wiki is always a nice place to look things up. It's hardly comprehensive, but good for finding out about the little things.

Damn good read. Sits on my shelf next to my Starfleet Academy Manual + U.S.S. Enterprise 1701 blueprints (that I bought in the '70's from the U.S. - postal shipping, in those days and took 3 months). I think behind them are the first "Star Wars" comics published - yup, they're there. Bought straight off the newagernt's shelf in 1977 before I'd even seen the film (that I saw at the Cinema/Drive-In 14 times, if memory serves).
