I have heard great things about the grey knight and horus heresy books but cant decide which one to read first. any opinions?

I don't think Farther's For Justice will allow you in the protest where you will be running around on a really high roof while pissed off your face

Well the Heresy is really turning out to be a great epic volume of novels, that really should be read by anyone that considers themself a 40k fan. But Grey Knights are awesome too but on a much smaller scale. I'd say, start with some HH and finish the Sons of Horus story arch. Like the first 3 or 4 books, then take a break and grab some GKs! Enjoy Man, it's gonna be a hell of a ride!

I recomend the HH first. Great books. However I love the Gk novels also. The last book is on its way to my library. Lol

well the heresy books are a set of books. They look really good. I went and got the black library previews catalogue for May-August 2012 and have read a taster for both the primarchs and the grey knights book the emperors gift...personally id go with the grey knight book (not because I am one) because it is written very well and I enjoyed reading the single chapter...now I want to read more

The first Grey Knoght omnibus is brill, has everything from a Daemon Prince who wiped out half the Grey Knights, a lost Forge World with the FIRST Titan EVER!, and a real full description of Daemon World (besides a lot of blood and skulls this place has civilisation!)

The Horus Heresy is awesome, the only down side theres just so much of it...

The titan bit is incorrect as we are a 2nd founding chapter and titans were used before and during/after the heresy so its impossible for us to find the first titan. Unless I've read it wrong and you mean that they found the first titan as in the first one to be built?

I don't think he meant that....and the titans nothing to brag about. It was corrupt and had to be destroyed along with the iron men template. Commissar Ibram Gaunt found another template for constucts but I know nit what happened to it.

Horus found 1 STC and Mars teared itself apart because of it.

I would say the horus heresy, you only have to read the first 3 books to start. I'm on the fourth book and its amazing. The Grey Knight books I haven't read, but I'm sure they are great as well.

I would say start with the Horus Heresy, because it is the beginning. It tells you EVERYTHING. It will even give you background info on the grey knights so you can go into that more well informed.

Ok im confused as the grey knights are formed at the end of the heresy.

Yes, but the origins are in the heresy.
