"an athame"
"anathame"
"anathema"

the choice of words is clumsy and I think that abnett tried to make a link between them that would be conciously picked up on - as equally clumsy as his use of the mechanism in first and only when he attempted to deflect interest from the spymaster instead of rawne. Strangely, when gav thorpe used the same mechanism in deliverance lost, he was slated "ahh wanker I saw through your gaping wide decoy plot" and yet when the radical inquisitor is revealed to have turned the spymaster, abnett gets lauded for it.

er anyway tangential, but you cant disagree that such obvious 'traps' are laid by abnett, and this may simply be one of those things.

"Darth Sidious"
"Master Sifodius"

Lucas pulled that crap in Phantom Menace (a pox upon it).

heh I liked phantom menace. no hayden panetierre or whatever his name was, qui gon, big lipped wide nosed huge eared lazy racial allegories, and a 'were gonna need a bigger boat' moment twice. dinosaurs with laser balls and forcefields, a proper baddy and podracing?

I still wonder why its so poorly regardrd. then again I prefer return of the jedi and the ewoks to empire strokes back, so what do I know?

Well, I'm glad you asked. Pardon the complete and total thread hijack here, but every male over the age of 17 needs to watch this. All of it.

It is a brilliant, insightful, thorough destruction of phantom menace, told through a comedy vehicle.

Divide 250,000 with 250, and you get 1000, which is the number organisation for each UM company. Now remember, as ADB said, this is only UM organisation, not necessarily all Legion formations.
I thought in the book it stated each Chapter was 10k strong?

I thought there was a thread about it, but can't find it. But what happened to Macragge's Honour at the end? Seemed like it took off in pursuit, and that was it.

That's what he said. 250,000 Space Marines, 25 Chapters. 250,000/25=10,000.

I don't recall what happened to Macragge's Honour at the end, however.

My reading comprehension skills have sucked the last couple of days.

And I found the other thread, fate unknown at this time.
