By the blessing of the Omnissiah was the Mars Triumphant born – from the forges of the Adeptus Mechanicus, the mighty Baneblade super-heavy battle tank comes to bring death and destruction to the foes of the Imperium. As part of the Paragonian 7th Company, Honoured Lieutenant Marken Cortein Lo Bannick commands the venerable war machine in a bitter war against the orks in the Kalidar system. As the campaign grinds on it begins to take its toll upon his crew, and old clan prejudices from the regiment’s home world arise once more. In a war which cannot be won by force of arms alone, such division may prove to be their undoing.

Good story with good character development. Warhammer40K fans will like it. Those who don't know Warhammer 40K may still
Iike it they like military SF.
For once the Mechanicus aren't villains which is a nice change.
I picked up Baneblade and found it to be a fast read and an enjoyable one. The tank battles are described well as are the relations between the crew members. While not a "deep" novel, Baneblade holds its own in the 40k Universe and is highly recommended.
