compared to the above primarchs, Curze has been amply explored in Lightning Tower/Dark King and all the flashback scenes in the NL series
heck, Curze has been more explored than Guilliman
ironically, there has been almost no BL material dealing directly with the primarch of the poster-boy legion
I'm not saying there aren't any primarchs explored less. I agree several deserve more screen time. But to object to one that's had almost none at all seems odd. Vague mentions in a non-HH series aren't something everyone will know, which leaves Curze having an audio drama several years ago, and very briefly featuring in a short story - and one chapter of a novel - always from other characters' points of view.
All the people saying they want to see Curze have a very valid point, whether they're Night Lord fans or not. It's not suddenly invalid if all the people asking for Sanguinius are Blood Angel fans, as if a fan of one thing is somehow unable to like anything else, or their opinion is void for wanting to see something in the series. We know next to nothing about Curze or his Legion in the Heresy, as we've seen next to none of them.
Like I said, I agree that several other primarchs need some airtime, but objecting to Curze and not objecting to the Lion or Ferrus Manus seems pretty pointless. If you don't like a character, sure, just admit that. But don't say you're sick of him because he's been explored so much, when he's barely been mentioned in the series at all.
The Lion has had two novels, a short story, and is getting a novella in The Primarchs
. And Ferrus Manus was a major character in Fulgrim
, also getting into The Primarchs
. You didn't object to them, which is why specifically complaining about a character with less air time than either of those is a bit odd.
Comparing Curze's amount of screentime to Guilliman is also kinda weird, seeing as one of the very next HH novels has Guilliman on the cover, and is essentially his major story in the Heresy.
Incidentally, the team get a lot of feedback from many angles, and Curze (and a Night Lords HH novel) is always one of the ones people clamour for.
