As Cain works to make the newly formed th Valhallan become a well-drilled and proper Imperial Guard force he and his men soon become part of a diplomatic delegation between Imperium diplomats negotiating with Tau counterparts in the Damocles Gulf sector. Sadly this book fell somewhat short of my expectations, the comedy not being particularly sharp and ciaphaas action not overly rousing.

Mitchell sets up a good amount of character development in the first few chapters, shows how the Inquisition suppresses certain information, and builds a strong story arch throughout the entire piece.

His adventures so far seem to consist of being dragged about and forced to d A bit more lighthearted of a take on the Warhammer 40k setting.
