1/3 of a novel for 3* the price... glad to see GW have attempted to understand the idea of scaling, though I think they still need practice. Wonder if this error has crept through as its standard practice when going from 3ups to regular to triple the price...

I'm a fan of the Horus Heresy series, but I read them because they are good books (with the exception of Fallen Angels) but that doesn't mean I'll shell out my hard earned money for overpriced junk.

Fallen Angels aren't that bad, I could think of a few others way worse then!

I'm still not sure why they felt the need to add 'Corax:' into the title. As has been said, 'Soulforge' on it's own would have sounded just fine.

Too expensive as usual and Corax again... Bouarf, not interested.

"For The Emperor."

At a dollar for every 2.5 pages, I think I can afford to once again miss out on this. I can get four to six packs of beer for that kind of money; fuck it I can buy a flyer from GW's site.
My thoughts exactly.

Normally I would agree, but he did a good job with Deliverance Lost.

I am looking forward to this. I think Gav writes decently (he seems to be doing a damn sight better than Mcniell and others recently) and I certainly enjoyed parts of Deliverance Lost.

I doubt it will stand out compared to Brotherhood of the Storm but that's just my bias at finally getting a book for my legion.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

At times like this I am glad I missed out on/didn't bother with, Aurelian and Promethan Sun.

If I had both of those I would have felt compelled to buy this next one, and the one after that and so on.

Corax: Soulforge is up for grabs now on BL, grabbed a copy:
http://www.blacklibrary.com/horus-he...soulforge.html

And I have Aurelian, Brotherhood of the Storm and Promethean Sun already.


Edit: Judging from the quote on the page, I strongly wonder if this is what which lays the root for Corax's decision to do the 'Nevermore' gig eventually.

The primarch Corax must infiltrate the heart of the Mechanicum priesthood on Constanix if he is to win any allies for the war to come, though he will likely be forced to confront the truth of his own mysterious nature along the way...

I really can't decide whether to get it or not, I dunno if I can justify £30 any more.

That's exactly the position I am in. I have both of them as well as Brotherhood of the Storm.

At least the cover is less "Corax:Hellfringe" than deliverance lost. Only just, but still better.
