Default Primarchs' Anthology - less 1 Primarch

Dunno if anyone noticed this yet, but it seems that they have dropped Alpharius/Omegon from the Anthology and instead replaced them with Curze...

Not sure if this is good or not, as it is definitely interesting to read about the NL primarch, though I was even more interested to read about the enigmatic AL primarchs....

THE STORY
Created in the Emperor’s own image, the primarchs had long thought themselves to be princes of the universe and masters of their own destiny – they led the Space Marine Legions in glorious conquest of the galaxy, and no enemy of the Imperium could stand against them. However, even amongst this legendary brotherhood, the seeds of dissent had been sown long before the treacherous Warmaster Horus declared his grand heresy.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Gathered within this anthology are four novellas focusing on some of the mightiest warriors and leaders that mankind has ever known – Fulgrim, Lion El’Johnson, Ferrus Manus and Konrad Curze – and the roles that they may have yet to play in a war which threatens to change the face of the Imperium forever.


Shame.

Yeah, this is gutting me immensely. I really like Rob Sanders' work. Humbug.

BOOO!! HISS!!! Although I like reading about all the Primarchs, the Alpha Legion intrigue me quite a bit. Oh well, maybe they have chosen to make it into a bigger story? Time will tell

I'm going to go on a limb and hope this signals Sanders being made a full novel author for the HH.

If not, I'll just have to cry.

Yeah I noticed this some time ago. On a positive note we will get lots of Alpha love in Deliverance Lost. Hopefully Rob Sanders will get a full length HH novel, although the running order at the moment is G.Thorpe (Deliverance Lost), Abnett (Know No Fear), ADB/GM/CW/NK (Primarchs anthology), James Swallow (Fear to Tread), and ADB (Untitled World Eaters/Word Bearers book) so it will most likely be early to mid 2013, and I believe GM is planning an Iron Warriors novel for then as well so it could be pushed back further.

I really liked Dan Abnett's portrayal of the AL...shame it's not him who's continuing it....

ADB is doing 'Butcher's Nails' about the World Eaters, it's due in June (before Fear to Tread).

He is doing that as well, it will effectively set the scene for his forthcoming HH novel. From what I know the Butchers Nails is a bridge between the end of Aurelian and his World Eaters book.
