Publisher's Summary

Realmslayer is the most exciting project I have worked on in years, and playing Gotrek fired my imagination with wonder. He possesses enormous courage and imagination, and is totally fearless – more powerful than any hero in literature and history.

What a challenge! It was like playing ten King Lears at once! He will live forever.

(Brian Blessed, the voice of Gotrek Gurnisson in Realmslayer)

Gotrek Gurnisson was the greatest monster slayer of the age, who met his doom at the End Times. The heroic duardin stepped forth into the Realm of Chaos to fight the daemons gnawing at the world's ending and satisfy his death oath, leaving behind his companion Felix Jaeger. 

Now Gotrek has returned, having outlived the old gods and the Old World. Spat from the ruinous depths with his redemption unfulfilled, he emerges into the Mortal Realms, a strange new world where gods walk the earth and dark forces are ascendant. Nothing is as he remembers. His oaths are dust, and the lands are torn asunder by Chaos.   

Yet when Gotrek learns of human champions being elevated to immortality for Sigmar’s fight against this darkness, the so-called 'Stormcast Eternals', he knows why fate has brought him into this new age. To find Felix. For only then can he find the peace in death he seeks. But is there more to Gotrek's apotheosis than even he can fathom? Has he truly been chosen by Grimnir and for what purpose?

Solid return for Gotrek

My only complaint is how brief everything is but its a surprisingly good return to form of the original series mixed with the straight high fantasy of the second authors books. The changes to Gotrek are appropriate for a dwarf stuck in the realm of Chaos for about ten thousand years and the characters that come along perfectly fitting.

Well voice acted, accompanying sound effects perfectly over the top, chapters get broken up into parts sort of like the originals in Trollslayer and Skavenslayer and is used to good effect. Very reminiscent of where the series started without being an uninspired series of repeats.

Now we need the original series done this way, plus all of Ciaphas Cain, Black Librarys latest effort for their audio have been amazing and these older series seeing new love is amazing.

An excellent story

Great, even if you're not familiar with the previous Felix and Gotrek fiction. All I knew going in was that they were a dwarf and a human who had some adventures.

Like listening to a movie.

Don't expect a traditional audiobook. There are sound effects throughout including voice modulation and background ambience. For me, it was just too much. I felt like I was listening to a movie that I couldn't watch. in this uncanny valley of audio, I couldn't visualize the scenes.

I'm disappointed, as I was expecting something similar to Ghoulslayer, but I know some people enjoy this type of thing. Listen to the preview before you buy.

A little confusing.

Coming from a lot of the older books aos can be a bit confusing but I made it through well enough. Brian Blessed could not have been a better pick for Gotrek voice.

An absolute must!

An amazing cast and production that makes it feel like a (great) Hollywood movie! I actually listened to the whole thing in one sitting. They need to make more of these!

I've been listening to GW audio dramas / books for years and this is by far the best thing they've done (and they've done a lot of great stuff)!

Gotrek is Back!

Absolutely loved this, the gotrek and felix books are my all time favourite fantasy novels and bringing this into the new warhammer world made me very happy indeed and I hope they make more! P.S Brian Blessed is amazing!

A Love Letter to Old Fans

Long time Gotrek fans will enjoy this. Brian Blessed is great, but strikes me as a slightly odd choice for the character in retrospect; Gotrek has quite a dark, tragic side that Blessed isn't quite able to capture.

That being said, Gotrek is very much the embodiment of grouchy, old-school Warhammer fans in this story. It's great to see GW are not beyond laughing at themselves, and it work very well seeing the Mortal Realms through the lens of an ancient, irascible grouch.

It's nice to see a bit more of the Fyreslayers, too, as they've been somewhat neglected for a long time.

The plot itself, whilst not outstanding, is not bad either. Realmslayer serves as an amusing, gentle reintroduction of a beloved character into a new setting, btmut probably won't be terribly entertaining to listeners without a vested interested in Gotrek's story.

"My axe thirsts, and I shall lead her to drink!"

The only negative I have about this production is that I want so much more of it!!! This isn't an audiobook, a reading of a novel, but more a radio play, relying on the amazing ambient sound effects and the divine delivery of all the voice actors involved. Dialogue heavy, sound effects and music are all perfectly balanced and Gotrek was made for Blessed! Story is only four hours long, last hour is interviews. Set up for a whole series. Bring it on!!!!

Pretty good for a leyman of 40k like myself

The story was great, I love greater-than-life characters. I wish they would make a movie about him. The narration was amazing! As to be expected from such names. The only thing I didn't like were the added noises from the background. Sometimes it was hard to understand what the actual characters were saying. And some of the have hard enough accents alreary.

Gotrek's lines are all perfect for his character. Good to see he isn't dead yet!

misleading length, story generic, amazing cast

first up over 1 hour of this are cast interviews!
the story is quite generic , no arc for main character, standard for a gotrek novel
performances are great
age of sigmar is really stupid, what can I say, it's hard to make it decent. the setting is beyond ridiculous.
