A Warhammer 40,000 Novella
The Red Gobbo is beloved by gretchin everywhere – a symbol of revolution, freedom and, at the very least, an afternoon off work. Orks, on the other hand, think the Red Gobbo is rubbish.
READ IT BECAUSE
Follow a painboy as he tries to cheer up a bunch of gretchin. How far will he go in his quest, and is the Red Gobbo really the answer he’s looking for?
When the bitter cold of a nuclear winter bites at a Blood Axe encampment and the grots fall into a terrifyingly compliant depression, painboy Stimma is forced to try the unthinkable. With no Red Gobbo around to stir the grots from their malaise, he must make one, using science, cunning and acts of incredible violence.
As Stimma hunts for knowledge, accompanied by the orderly grot Goggulz, he unravels the mystery of the Red Gobbo, delves into the bizarre world of ork revolushunaries, and unpacks visions that hint at the origins of grotkind.
And soon, Stimma discovers the Red Gobbo is no mere grot – and much more than he bargained for.
