Give the thing a chance before you blast it.
Well said*, that man.
I quite enjoyed Mountain Eater a while back, I always felt a good massive wank-fest** would make a decent story.
* What a lot of embarrassing nonsense.
** The 'dex might be OTT, but with both tongue-in-cheek emphasis and the overture that Draigo might as well be the Emperor/Star Child trying to come (back) into existence... well, it's got a hell of a lot more interesting detail to the utter tripe trotted out by folks doing their best to sound like mindless idiots.
When have I ever said that a Deamon Primarchs were invincible? Never. I actually think that the story of how the First War for Armageddon was won is one of the best heroic tragedies in 40k i.e. 109 GK Termintors assault Angron and his bodyguard of 12 blood thirsters, of only 13 GK's survive after just managing to banish Angron back into the warp for 100 years and a day. That's of course with the sacrifice of the Brother Captain who actually dealt the banishing blow, and thats in the real realm not in the Warp. And one GK can wander around the Warp (where deamons are at their strongest) smacking chaos creatures left right and center? Yea thats not OTT at all...
So no the question of how one defeats a Deamon Primarch has already been answered, in more than one publication.
So the old fluff is "utter tripe" is it LOTN? OK buddy, enjoy your "tongue in cheek" Space Wolves Wolf Guard riding Thunderwolves armed with a wolf claw and the mark of Wulfen, or a Nemesis Dreadknight in dreadnight armour armed with 2 Nemesis doomfists. Thats not tongue in check thats a childishly simplistic hammering of one single facet of a races characteristics for 9 year olds because they can't handle anything more complex and its becoming more and more common with the fluff. If by "utter tripe" you mean slightly more complex than a snap fit kitset, then yes, yes it is.
If you actually think that GW is bring back the star child mythos via Drago then you sir have been taking some happy pills that I'd love to have. The star child mythos is dead and gone I'm afraid, GW an't bringing that back. Drago is simply a uber pwner character that Ward shoved in there to sell minis to 9 year olds. He's not tragic at all, "oh I can't go home or see my mates for anything more than 2 hours at a time while we are fighting" is not tragic, being forced to work to death in a labour camp and sterilized after defending your planet against the horrors of the warp is tragic, your entire world being obliterated simply because you heard a story about the actions of some storm troopers is tragic. "you can't see your mates" boo fucking hoo.
