On war-torn Armageddon, Black Templars Chaplain Grimaldus is charged with the defence of Hive Helsreach. In the face of countless greenskins and their cunning war machines, can Grimaldus hold the line?

This is your chance to rediscover Aaron Dembski-Bowden's classic and beloved Space Marine Battles novel in its original format – and to see the heroics of Chaplain Grimaldus as he fights to save an entire city.

When the world of Armageddon is attacked by orks, the Black Templars Space Marine Chapter are amongst those sent to liberate it. Chaplain Grimaldus and a band of Black Templars are charged with the defence of Hive Helsreach from the xenos invaders in one of the many battlezones. But as the orks numbers grow and the Space Marines dwindle, Grimaldus faces a desperate last stand in an Imperial temple. Determined to sell their lives dearly, will the Black Templars hold on long enough to be reinforced, or will their sacrifice ultimately be in vain?
