Dashes off to the Black Library (shoves Ahriman out of the way, and stealing his webway map) to get latest issues.

How do you view ebooks? Can you just download it and view it normally or do you need a ebook reader?

In the final analysis they were tricked by a chaos deamon away from the Imperium and in a rare twist they killed it and told chaos to go to hell - full honours to them in my book, and as for the lousy Imperium who still side with the view point of a Dark Mechanicum Adeptus who stole the lance in the first place to steal the tech secrets of the Primarchs, they were duped into believing their lies, they can go to hell to.

Im with the Soul Drinkers all the way.

P.S. the real problem though is basically one of the difference between a founding chapter and a second founding chapter, in the way a betrayal by another organisation of the Imperium was dealt with. The difference being prestige and power, a founding chapter would never have the word of another organisation taken against theirs in court or on the battle field.

EG when the Dark Mech secretly working as the true Mechanicum stole the Soul Lance from under the noses of the Soul Drinkers, this is what happened - the Soul Drinkers fired on the Mechanicum and the Imperial Navy sided with the Mechanicum.

As in;
" OMG the Soul Drinkers have fired on the Mechanicum, they have turned renegade, the Soul Drinkers are sooo in trouble with the Inquisition"

now for example with a Founding chapter;
" OMG the Space Wolves have fired on the Mechanicum, the Mechanicum are sooo in trouble - the Space Wolves word is law - higher than the Inquisition and the High Lords of Terra, you just dont mess with them."

The Souls Drinkers failed to impose their true potential of command on the battle field, they allowed the word of a lesser status organisation to be taken over thiers, they had no need to turn renegade.

Is this a weakness of a second founding chapter - they have less authority over the other organisations in the Imperium.
Here, here.

Just saying.
Yeah cause Ben Counters Huge Series that shows a huge amount of establish fluff ranging from 5 BL books which include fluff from Imperial Archives that stated their Dorns stock, Chapter Knowledge and Dorn Relics, Other Dorn Geneseed like CF and IF aknowledging them as Dorns sons, and the Geneseed itself shown to be the that of Dorn on a Medical examination is just not enough proof cause someone wants to start a rumour in that book.

I hate Ret Cons.

I hate the purple armor > _ < plus the dude on the omnibus doesnt look bad ass. So I skip it.

I wonder if a BL author will do like the space marine battle books have done and combine chapters into one book or series. Slap together like the Black Dragons with Space Wolves.

Blood Angels? Blood Angels have a successor called Blood Drinkers, so it's a lot more plausible imo. Crimson Fists + Black Templars are pretty suitable, but Soul Drinkers just don't sound right.

You can get an ADOBE Digital Edition eBook reading program free from the web and read the books on all sorts of media.
