Warhammer Novels - for a ten year old

My kid is a huge Warhammer enthusiast. He also loves to read. Am I going to be able to combine both.

My kid plays both Warhammer and Warhammer 40K (yes, yes I am an awesome mother to support this). I know there are a LOT of Warhammer novels out there, but I am a bit worried that they might be a bit much for my kid. Not above his reading level - he is reading highschool level - but graphic, really scary/inappropriate for a pre-teen violence or sexual references. And while violence doesn't freak him out too much per se, he has a very vivid imagination and frankly the 'read it and imagine the worst' is even worse for him than watching it on a screen.#
Before I download a copy or two for myself and try to read them (this really is not my thing*) to see if they are passable - how 'mature' are these novels? Can you recommend any for him? He plays Tau and High Elves but frankly would read any of the novels that I let him.
# before you want to strip me of my awesome mother cred for letting my pre-teen watch violent movies, I am talking Pacific Rim and Star Wars level stuff.
*Okay, I admit to painting his models. Because I am an awesome mother, as mentioned above. But I have no interest in playing the game or in the backstory that many players seem to take very seriously.
