for me Mephiston is one of the most if not the most bad-ass character in the 40 K setting, certainly on the loyalist side he has little to no competition, if GW decides to give Mephiston a choas oriented direction (cool characters loyalists : +2, cool characters chaos : +1e67), I will be very very disappointed,
chaos already has a truck load of uber powerfull active characters, they have daemon primarchs, Abadon, Kharn, Lucius, graeter daemons, erebus, phaeron, typhus, Decimus (I think his name was, talos his offspring), and so many more extremely powerfull characters, what have the loyalist against this (and don't give me the drago crap), Lysander, Mephiston, Tigurius, Shrike, Vel'cona, he stan,Hector Rex, that is about it for me (all I can think of right now), this does not even come close to the Chaos coolness
I hope I made my point,
Mephiston stays loyal !

I don't see it as exploitation by Black Library -- more like testing the waters. We are customers, they know we'll pay X amount for Heresy Novels. Now they're upping the ante for Lords of the Space Marines. If you don't like the price, convince a bunch of people not to pay for it and in seven days when they sell only a third or a quarter of what they intended maybe they'll see your reaction and drop the prices.

I will likely not buy it. Price is a touch too high and I'm still fighting feverishly to catch up with the Battles of the Space Marines.

It is the SM brother of he-man of course

sorry, I did not check the exact spelling of all names, the point I was trying to make is that chaos has far more characters with supreme power compared to the loyalists (excluding drago from the discussion, since this is a fluff singularity), Mephiston is a rare very powerfull individual associated with the empirium, I would really like it if this would not change,
