You know, I've noticed his best work has been portraying loyalist legions even when they are the verge of corruption. I think thats what made A Thousand Sons and Fulgrim possibly his greatest works. I'm not a big fan of his portrayal of traitors. I think he paints them as black and white and doesn't really show that corrupted aspect. They aren't simply bad characters you know? They are corrupted.
