Corax: Soulforge (Novella) - Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Corax is wearing black camo on his face! The action is relatively sparse and brief, although the highlight involves a battle between two floating mechanicum cities, which includes a boarding action. The story also works in references to the workings of the Dark Mechanicum and the new twisted creations they are working on.

Corax: Soulforge – Gav Thorpe
A nice little yarn in the history of the Raven Guard. Unfortunately, the cover is, like, matt black or something. Most fascinating of all, it gives us our first proper look at daemon engines, and pits Corax against a daemon prince.
And we get to see how even Space Marines weren't meant to handle something as tragic as the Dropsite Massacre, because of how some of the survivors are acting.
He continues to write for Black Library, and his first 'homegrown' novel series The Crown of the Blood has siulforge released via Angry Robot.
A fun Heresy read even if it's super predictable. Other books in the series. Whether this is truth or lie remains unknown at the end of the story, but it gives Corax more to chew on and introspect further.
There is one last moment of note regarding the tauntings Corax receives which hint at the Emperor's motives in the creation of the Primarchs and the link all might share to the primordial powers.
