Iron Corpses is the thirtieth audio drama for the The Horus Heresy series that was not originally released as part of an anthology or other release. Iron Corpses was pre-released together with the audio drama The Eagle's Talon in January 2015 at the 2015 Horus Heresy Weekender by the Black Library. The title was later published in prose format as part of "Summer of Reading 2015: Week 1 Collection", and again as part of the Eye of Terra main series anthology novel.

Official Synopsis

The ravaged world of Tallarn plays host to the greatest armoured conflict in the history of mankind. The bitter and vengeful Iron Warriors led entire divisions of tanks and war machines across the befouled plains, until the macro-transporter Eagle's Talon plunged to the surface and ended a million lives in a heartbeat. Stranded upon some unnamed, toxic battlefield that now resembles nothing more than a graveyard of Titans, Warsmith Koparnos knows that he has precious little time left -- will he find salvation amidst the dead god-machines, or quickly succumb to violent madness?
