The third installment in this series from Gameshop’s Warhammer 40,000 finds Commissar Gaunt and his Legion, or Ghosts, back in Alien Worlds, embroiled in an ancient and deadly civil war between the nine noble houses of the shattered planet of Verghast.
On the war-torn planet of Verghast, Commissar Ibram Gaunt and his men find themselves caught up in an ancient and bloody civil war.
When betrayal and treachery bring the walls of a besieged hive city crashing down, bitter rivalry and corruption surface, bringing the Tanith Ghosts to the brink of destruction.
