Personally I have faith in Rob Saunders on giving Alpha Legion a good portrayal. People or too thick glued to Dan and that he is the only one who can pull it off. After re-reading Fulgrim, Im a bit worried how Kyme will pull off Ferrus, but I will judge him afterwards, not before.

They are still the primary (and sole in many cases) sources for much information we have on each Legion.

It wouldn't add much to the Horus Heresy. It would have even less relevance to the Heresy story arc than Descent of Angels/Fallen Angels.

It would mainly be a diversion (no doubt an entertaining one for WS fans).
In my experience, the people who call the opinions of others "idiotic" usually prove themselves to be the real idiots.

I know and of course it can be referenced, but there's some doubt in whether they are true after so long and after so many changes in the HH series already. Not saying discard them.

I actually think that nearly every single primarch needs more page time, the lion may have had 2 books and a short story that he was in, but very little has been given that really shows his mindset. (I haven't read the clip from 'the lion' yet).

Who I really want to read more about is Curze, who has only popped up in a few shorts and a chapter or so in the NL books. Then purturabo, kharn, and a lot more horus.
