Format: Paperback
In Steve Parker's short story "Mercy Run," anthologized in the Warhammer 40,000 collection entitled "Planetkill," we meet Sergeant Wulfe of the Cadian 81st Armoured Regiment and the crew of the "Last Rites," his Leman Russ tank. Wulfe is a cross between Humphrey Bogart in the World War II film "Sahara" and Marvel Comics' Sergeant Fury of The Howling Commandos. He is a tough and savvy veteran, who in many instances knows more than the officers who command him.

In "Mercy Run," Wulfe escorts sisters of Sororitas to save Captain Waltur Kurdheim before Orks destroy Palmeros; however, as in all 40K novels, the Sororitas' agenda is more sinister and treacherous than immediately apparent.

Time clicks ponderously away as three tanks and the Sisters' Chimera rush across the world in panic. Death awaits them at every corner. The story is a nail biter to the final page and its end sets up the premise of the novel, "Gunheads."

In "Gunheads" Sergeant Wulfe has a new tank; he is haunted by a psychic vision, and he has a new nemesis, one corporal Lenck. This time out the 81st Cadian Armoured is dropped onto Golgotha, a death world inhabited by hundreds of thousands of Orks. Their mission is to retrieve the "Fortress of Arrogance," a battle tank that belonged to Commissar Yarrick, hero of Hades Hive. Yarrick is an Ork fighter extraordinaire and, in fact, is one of the only humans to master the Ork language.

Once again unscrupulous men and machines manipulate the Imperial Guard to achieve their ruthless ambitions. In "Gunheads," the Adeptus Mechanicus deceives both the Imperial Guard and Yarrick by dangling Yarrick's massive baneblade tank and glory before their eyes.

Just finished reading this yesterday. Probably in my top three Warhammer 40k books of all time. Lots of action, great characters, fast pace, good writing. One criticism. Parker finishes the story off well, but leaves a secondary few threads that I would have liked to see tied up neatly. He's probably planning a sequel, I think. Anyway, I found this book and Rebel Winter (his previous novel) smoother reads than a lot of other 40k books.

If a sequel to either Gunheads or Rebel Winter does come out, I'll get it. I like Parker's writing so far and I hope his next book is up to the same standard as his first two.

This is by far my favorite GW book in a long while and enjoyed it as much as my all time favorite Storm of Iron. The action scenes are well written the charicters interesting and enjoyable to read..

Anyone who enjoys reading about the Imperial Guard will love this book its everything that you could want with mass Infantry and Tank battles and a grand mission to save the mighty Fortress of Arrogance from the savage Ork hoards.
