Default Egrimm van Horstmann

I have just finished reading the latest Warhammer Heroes novel, Van Horstmann by Ben Counter, and as discovering this novel was the very first time I read about Van Horstmann and learned who he was it has made me sure of one thing.

Van Horstmann needs to be brought back for WoC 9th edition. Who here agrees with me?

I really thought he would have appeared in the latest book, and they would have released a lovely new chaos dragon for Baudros, like they did for Karl Franz

I've not read the latest book but he was a favourite of mine way back in the day alongside Aekold.

Agreed, him and Aekold bring back some good memories.

I love Van H, but he has a similar background to Archaon.

Used to be a high ranking member of the empire, learns a dark secret, goes a bit insane and tries to burn the empire down.

however, warriors of chaos with lore of light would be pretty sweet.

Actually the book has changed his background quite a bit.
