The omnibus itself is good quality. The font looks darker and easier to read than other BL omnibuses I have, which is nice. I didn't find the thickness of the book itself to be a problem, surprisingly. I preferred the old cover art, though.
In terms of the content, I thought Honour Guard was mediocre. The ending was a bit too 'deus ex machina' for my tastes.
The Guns of Tanith was fantastic, but I found it a bit hard to follow the different squads throughout the story. The map was definitely helpful in picturing what was going on.
Straight Silver is my second favorite Gaunt's Ghosts novel so far, after Necropolis. WW1-style trench warfare in the 41st millennium... I really loved this one just based on the setting alone.
Sabbat Martyr is considered to be one of the best novels in the series, but to me it felt like an inferior version of Necropolis. Also had a bit too much fantasy / magic / warpcraft for my tastes, but still a great read.
