Fun scenery-chewing villains, weak ending

Entertaining, but at this point I expect more from Black Library audio drama writing. Best for completionists or Blackstone Fortress fans only.

And so, the end...

Run, shoot, grunt, fart, exposition, run, shoot, grunt, fart, exposition, exposition, grunt, fart, exposition, the end.

I would recommend waiting to buy the combined release when it comes. It won't be any cheaper (unless it's on sale) but the whole story might all flow together better.

The voice acting is as good as it always is for a BL/GW audio drama, but it's all inconsequential in the end. The story ends pretty much as it began, with lots of running and shouting in the middle. Nothing is accomplished or changed.

Oh, well. I enjoyed it but it could have been better.
