Publisher's Summary

A Primarchs audio drama

On the Macragge's Honour, Ultramarines Sergeant Ammon defends the primarch's chamberlain, Tarasha Euten. He doesn't expect that even in the midst of danger, the venerable woman has a lesson to impart....

Listen to it because:

Get an insight into Roboute Guilliman from one of those closest to him, a woman who has been with him throughout his life. Discover how history has altered an event in his past...and not for the last time.

The story:

As the Ultramarines flagship Macragge's Honour comes under attack, Seargeant Ammon rushes to the quarters of Tarasha Euten, the primarch's chamberlain. Euten has been by Guilliman's side since he was a child and counselled him across the decades. Old in body but still sharp and wise, she gives the sergeant a lesson in leadership, using an example from the primarch's youth. Prepare to discover how young Roboute conquered the hill tribes and brought peace to Macragge...just not in the way the history books record. 

Written by Darius Hinks. Running time 28 minutes.

Insight into Roboute but Ends Too Soon

Gives great insight into Roboute Guilliman, but leaves you wondering what happens to the two main characters of this particular story. Would’ve been nice if they wrapped it up. Still recommend it.

too short!!!!

I know that it said 28 minutes, but so much was being revealed then. . . done! Talk about leaving us wanting more!

Stories about the primarchs are always juicy, but seeing this from the woman that served as a mother to him was invaluable!

Well done Darius Hinks.

Great Short Story

I needed a short story to hold me over for an unexpected wait. This was an excellent 28 minutes.

Interesting to know

Well performed and produced but, ultimately, not important. It's one of those filler stories that tells of how awesome Girlyman was back in the day, though through the eyes of a side character rather than the man himself. History, as they say, is written by the Victor's and this proves that a lot of what is told to the masses in the Imperium about the early days of the Primarchs is often lies and exaggeration. Like all great leaders they are, at the end of the day, as flawed as those below them.
