But apart from that, does anyone else think that the cover art of The Geld is super shit?
Yeah, really not a fan of it myself either. Not liking any of those cover arts if I'm being honest, but thats just me.
And since when has Shrike been chapter master?
Since Corvin Severax was killed by Shadowsun in the Prefectia campaign, which can be found in the Warzone Damocles: Kauyon book. Shrike was able to recover Severax's geneseed (the chapter masters body located in firmly controlled Tau territory, and the remaining shadow captains of the chapter elected him the new chapter master.
