Publisher's Summary

A Warhammer 40,000 audio drama collection.

Mankind rightly rules the galaxy - but there are many aliens who would see that reign end, from the savage orks to the subtle aeldari....

Discover the ways in which many of the Imperium's alien enemies wage war across a collection of full-cast audio dramas that showcase the aeldari, the orks and the T'au Empire.

Many are the xenos foes who plague mankind's Imperium. Ancient races which once ruled the galaxy, such as the aeldari and necrons, lurk in the darkness, awaiting their chance to reclaim what was once theirs. Younger races like the upstart T'au Empire grow in power and influence, ever eager to topple humanity and take their place. And across the galaxy, the savage orks wage brutal war, fighting all in their path simply for the joy of battle. This audio drama anthology contains eight tales of the aeldari, the orks and the T'au Empire. From the adventures of a greenskin mekaniak and his madcap entourage to a journey into a shattered aeldari craftworld and a tale of a war-damaged t'au bent on revenge, each of these immersive audio dramas will give you new insights into the aliens of the 41st Millennium.

Great short stories!

Really cool short stories that focus on some xenos factions, primarily Eldar and Orks! Great listen

Mostly good, recommendation for Xeno players.

Most stories were good, with 'Prophet of the Waaagh' being quite fun. Some had great voice acting in sounds, other were fine. only issues were the 4th and last book.

4th book follows our characters from the first story, but really drops the ball in voice acting. The deep, savage guttural speech was lost, and can be very distracting when all the characters sound like grots.

The final story was not as distracting, but is left open-ended, presumably to leave a game scenario in its place, thus not giving the listener an end.

overall, the collection is worth the read, dragged down only by these two examples.

3 Gems

There are 3 really good stories in the collection - Prophets of Waaagh!, Hand of Darkness and Howl of the Banshee. Great story-line and voice acting. I've listened to these three stories so many times while in the gym that I can recite parts of them by heart.

pass on this

only the first 2 Orc stories we're good because they didn't take themselves seriously. the eldar voices we're hard to listen too. the Tao story was like something I would have wrote when I was 12. (and Tao don't belong in the 40k universe anyways) I've given up trying to find good stories from the xenos perspective.

All Xenos tales, except for one...🙁

4 Aeldari stories, 2 Ork stories, 1 T'au Empire story, 1 Imperial guard story?... As a big T'au fan, I know there are two audio books that exist, yet I was very disapointed when the 1 imperial guard audio book kicked it.

To know this is the XENOS's story audio collection, WHY on earth is there a kreig corp. story in here!? Replace that with the 2nd T'au Empire audio book instead please. Ridiculous!

Otherwise, over all I was entertained with is all, ESPECIALLY the 1st audio story from the Orks' side.😂 Gold m8!

Awesome book

Great story telling! Love the sound affects. I just would really loved if they would have had more T’au stories. A series of T’au stories would be really awesome.

not the best stories but the first orks great

So it was pretty hard even as someone who really enjoys the 40k universe to enjoy this series of books; The first set of ork books were great and the preformers were awesome! and the Tau one was slow, but interesting if you like the strategic mysteries like art of war; but the rest were pretty drawn out and uninteresting.

Good collection of short stories.

A nice spread of xenos stories. Tyranids are excluded from this which is fine. Lots of eldar stories but they seem to be a little weaker in the collection.

need's more necrons but good

the prophet of waahh made this worth the purchase. I love necrons so I was hoping to hear some stories from them. but it's nice to hear xenos stories. except that tau one was a little ridiculous.

We Need More Xenos!

Performances were all great and the production made the stories MUCH more fun and immersive...especially the first few Ork stories!

I only enjoyed a couple of the stories.

it's always a risk with short stories as you may enjoy one and want it to last only to be cut for another story which brings the book down.

Cacophonous.

The sound effects drown out the reading (especially the Ork ones). The stories are a little boring (except for the Tau one). Definitely not recommended.

A few stories from (mostly) xenos perspective

I really enjoyed this collection. It covers Eldar, Orks, Tau, and a brief feature of Tyranids.
There is one story centred on imperial guard, but they're fighting an ork opponent. Good story, but one could have gone for a more xeno-focused story one for the xenos collection.
The ork stories are good destructive fun.
The eldar stories are tinged with poetry and loss.
The Tau story features excellent tactics, determination, and vengeance.

Great performances, stories just not for me.

The voice acting and sounds were great. I just struggled to enjoy the Eldar stories. the Orks were great though.

Book 1 is worth buying alone.

Book 1 performed from the orks perspective, perfect. Can't fault it hope we see more xenos books.
