Gathering Storm: Rise of the Primarch


Gathering Storm: Rise of the Primarch

A Warhammer 40,000 expansion

These are the Imperium's darkest days. Cadia has fallen, warp storms ravage the galaxy and the forces of Chaos are everywhere. Even such bastions as Macragge, home world of the Ultramarines, are not immune to the savage assaults of the Dark Gods' servants. But where there is darkness comes the light of hope. An alliance of Imperial forces and Aeldari may hold the key to victory: the power to awaken Roboute Guilliman, primarch of the Ultramarines!

Heroes new and old rise in defence of the Imperium, and the universe of Warhammer 40,000 will be changed forever.
