Fellix and a little crude The first omnibus was my first introduction to the tales of the Slayer and his human chronicler. Lots of monsters, lots of fighting, lots of charac I loved this book.

Gotrek, the outcast dwarve with the magic axe, must seek a heroes doom by dying in battle against a superior opponent. More so as I personally own a miniature model of this infamous skaven character. Why don’t dwarves like elves?

I personally liked the change, however I did miss the little comments on Felix’s part, going over what happened in between.

A relic of the Knights of the Order of the Fiery Heart, it was forged for the purpose of slaying dragons. Expect Gotrek really hates elves and trees I’m only reading this book because it was given to me. Thanquol like Gotrek and Felix is a proven survivor, though unlike Gotrek and Felix who survive on skill, bravery and honor, Thanquol survives mainly due to his cowardice and his willingness to put others in the line of fire.

The adventures of Gotrek Gurnisson, Dwarf Slayer seeking an epic doom to atone for his past sins, and Felix Jaeger, down on his luck poet from Altdorf sworn to chronicle the Dwarf’s doom, are not only the most enjoyable titles published by Black Library, they are among the very best in all of fantasy. This book is a perfect entrance to warhammer fantasy and its grim dark World. Very fascinating and atmospheric, especially when you know background and the real history late middle-ages of the real Earth, because Warhammer FB is fully based on it.

After half a decade of putting it off, I finally picked it up.

However, they encountered Kat again in Shamanslayer many years later, now a woman in her late twenties and a deadly warrior, driven to kill all beastmen to avenge the murder of her adopted family.


In the stories in the first book contained within this omnibus, Gotrek and Felix encounter cultists, wolf-riding goblins, a ruined dwarven stronghold, a mutant-creating sorceror, and werewolves, among other things.

Gotrek and Felix: The First Omnibus (Warhammer : Gotrek and Felix) by William King

Its set in the Empire of the Warhammer fantasy universe and concerns the travels of The titular characters – Gotrek – a dwarven Flix – who is seeking a glorious Much better written than it appears from a first look. And who is this William King person anyway? Nov 19, Anders Stormklinge rated it it was amazing. The equivalent of an 80’s action movie; sometimes a little dumb but fully capable of making your afternoon enjoyable.

Snorri Nosebiter, another Slayer, is introduced. Aug 29, Skut L rated it it was amazing Shelves: A major theme in the novels is the tension within Felix between his desire to settle down in peace and comfort, away from the danger of being Gotrek’s companion, and his longing to felis the banalities of omnigus Imperial society for a life of heroism and adventure, and it is this conflict that shaped much of his relationship with Gotrek and his family.

It makes for an entertaining story, but like the chorus of a Nickelback song, it gets a bit repetitive. Now Felix is starting to regret that vow, as he has to constantly fight for his life if he ever wants to finish recording Gotrek’s quest for death. We don’t see too many non-Slayers in King’s work, but the ones we do get a glimpse of are fascinating creatures, running the gamut from the wise and lore-seeking scholarly type to the greedy and cowardly who still prove they are Dwarves at the end of it all and make up for their lost honor.

Felix I only read the first book of the series, “Trollslayer” and liked it although I didn’t want to. Description The Black Library’s flagship fantasy series is collected together in a stunning new omnibus edition. He is seemingly impossible to kill, having survived, among other things, a single combat with a Bloodthirster of Khorne, being hit by a stone hurled by a trebuchet, being catapulted into an orc ship and falling three hundred feet off a cliff. The two main characters work excellently together, and across the series Felix the young idealist ages and hardens to the world as he is dragged along behind Gotrek the dour dwarven warrior who remains as craggy and hardened as he was on the first page, in inc I think Bill King’s “Slayer” series is a great epic.


Namely the one focusing on the POV of Thanquol. Although not highbrow in anyway the book was fun to read and a nice rendition of the Warhammer world.

They find that the Dwarves have been building an airship to take them over the Chaos Wastes very bad to find a lost Dwarf city. Still pretty enjoyable though, good action and a lot of laughs.

The battle at the end was epic and Gotrek’s lines made me laugh outloud. In the city of Nuln, they get involved in an invasion by the sewer-dwelling skaven. Still pretty enjoyable though, good action and a lot of laughs. The journey to Karag Dum doesn’t drag, as many epic journeys do, and the final battle is probably in my top ten fantasy final battles of all time. Feelix enjoyed myself tremendously.

We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards. Specifically, he was originally written to be a Gold wizard but this was later retconned in ‘Elfslayer’ to being a wizard of the Light College and using the Wind of Hysh. Dan Schwent ‘s review Dec 31, The action was great and we got to meet several secondary characters that added to the story.

What they find fflix will truly be one of their greatest adventures in their lifetime. Lots of action and humor as well. And he’s also a omnibud and it’s really hard to picture him at first as being poet like, omnius to the image on the front cover and that he seems pretty handy with a sword. That night, when both were extremely drunk Felix vowed to follow Gotrek and record his “death saga”. I thought Gotrek and Felix would be nothing but a pulpy mess, but an easy read.

It is fast faced and the action never stops.
