I wouldn't mind seeing Raldorn and Azkaellon done properly. Azkaellon is a legend enough as it is and is set to go on to lead the Blood Angels in their most difficult time. Raldoron is First Captain of the damn Blood Angels, is mentioned by other Legions in awe. Yet both of them were utterly shite in Fear to Tread(along with everything else in the book). Azkaellon just came off as an aloof jerk with nothing really special about him, whilst Raldoron couldn't have been more plain or generic, there was just nothing to him at all.

Given that Forge World's books tell us that more Space Marines than Loken got off Isstvan alive (like that Death Guard bloke whose name I forget) and they didn't all become the first Grey Knights. Plus, we don't know what happened to Rylanor? So many questions left unanswered!
Exactly. Rylanor had something in mind on Istvaan III. I would very much like to know what that is.

I know who I want to see much less of, the fucking Space Marines. They are fucking everywhere. Man they are over-used and often comes across as simply stupid like the Imperial Fists almost losing the Phalanx or the Ultra-Clossauds almost losing Macragge several times. That's not great generalship, thats clumsy.

I wanna see more of the Imperial Guard BTW.

Well for starters can I see more Cain and Gaunt; particularly Gaunt. I need those epic smashing novels of "Last Stand," type stories. Gets my blood going each and every time.

Following that I need a shit ton more TAU!!!!!! The Tau are so under written and yet arethe coolest race out their. More close to our future than we care to admit it wuld be interesting to see them develop through Fluff; provided the writers are good. Then perhaps a few more Necron novels. Let us forget about the Heresy; such a boring subject really. Very predictable plot lines and characters, but a Necron Dynasty's History.....what an interesting novel it could make.

Finally I need a few novels on the current situation of the Primarchs....can I see Vulkan please. , or perhaps something on the Emporer himself. Regardless a bit more is needed.

Personally, rather than specific characters, I'd actually like to see more, decently written, IG novels. The majority of what's been put out there so far has been shit IMO. Maybe get some of the better BL authors to have a go at doing some novels focusing on some of the elite Guard regiments. Like if they had someone like ADB, Wraight or Abnett to do, for example, a Harakoni Warhawks novel, I'd literally be throwing money at BL.

And if they use Orks as villains, get the damn fluff right. If I read one more instance where some random guardsman kills an Ork with a combat knife, by slitting its throat, I'm gonna smack someone with a keyboard.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

Some expansion on necron characters would be nice. A more inside track on the thought and personality processes of individuals like Anrakyr and Obyron would be of particular interest to me.

Some stories detailing the exploits of specific tyranid entities would also be nice. The Swarmlord, as well as Old One Eye in particular.

it would be interesting to see the galaxy from the perspective of two Space marines, one from a loyal legion and the other from a traitor legion that were trapped in the warp pre heresy and come back to 40k and see everything through their eyes.
