"From Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor's Children, the Despoiler was gifted with the favour of Slaanesh in exchange for the Pythosian psyker, offered as an unblemished vessel to contain the avatar of Fulgrim's god."
It's not exactly conclusive, but if Epimetheus was the psyker that is being referred to then it opens up some interesting avenues.
"The theme behind Warhammer 40,000 isn't that the Imperium will one day emerge triumphant. It's the chronicle of how humanity ends, inch by inch."
Yeah, I'm starting to realise this as well which is really disappointing.
Constantly reading stories of evil triumphing over good (particularly the way the BL do it)is not only kind of depressing it a little perverse IMO.
Not sure how long I can continue reading this stuff, I love the potential of the 40K universe for grand story telling but the constant grim dark and "bolter porn" novels are getting boring.
I liked Pandorax, but thought the ending sucked. It was a typical BL horrific end to a pretty good character.
