I'll reserve my judgement until I read it for myself. I've liked Nick Kyme's past work and I think i'll like Vulkan Lives, I may not, but i'll wait until i'm reading the book until I decide to believe or disbelieve you.

And if anyone here has read Betrayal by Forge World, specifically the section on the Death Guard, they will know what i'm talking about when I say Mortarion's childhood is one of the coolest of all the Primarchs, second to Curze's imo.

I tell you who would do the Death Guard and Mortarion justice......Rob Sanders, just read his short 'Distant Echos of Old Night' and you will understand completely that Rob is the man for the job. In fact Robs work in the Heresy has produced top tier work everytime, and I cannot wait to find out what he is working on next within the Horus Horus Heresy.

Give Sanders a novel indeed.

I'm looking forwards to Vulkan Lives and how I'll slot it into my ultimate Heresy reread list (I'm already speculating on that now), but things like Ferrus scratching at his neck from an unexplainable rash in Feat of Iron really isn't my thing. It's up there with the big galaxy-shaking revelation McGuffin in The Outcast Dead.

I don't see why Swallow couldn't do Mortarion's transcension by the Grandfather. I'd prefer that to the original canon - which states something a little less Nuceria-raining-blood or sacrifice-of-crone-world-souls.

Okay too many questions and i have a job to do, but i will try to answer them. So:

Quote:
Personally I find Wraight to be hit or miss. Battle for the Fang and Sword of Justice were good, but Sword of Vengeance felt like a chore
.
My points too, but i will definitely give Wraight a try for awesome battle for Chondax, hope it would be awesome
Quote:
Personally I'm a big fan of most of Swallow's work
Iam not soo much, after the awful Fear to Thread. We will see if he coul do another Flight of Eisenshtein with his DG novel - but i really hope he would. Given the ideas BL plans to send their.
Quote:
Are you just speculating, or do you have some source for this?
No, it was mentioned at BLW and BL live in March and in private conv. by some authors. They said that they will stop doing novels about the Legions background and fluuf, its long time past that, but


Quote:
Hopefully, the WS novel goes into the Khan's motivations and the background of the WS. It's almost a guarantee though considering we know absolutely nothing about them.
It will - you will see next March.

I understands you completely. Iam too has given a chance for Kyme, just on the fact, that i dont want to skip any HH stuff. The reality is that after the cool Betrayer - i havent seen a decent HH this year. Mark of Calth was bad, Imperial Truth was bad, and now Vulkan lives. To be honest - it is not a bad novel (by the Kyme standarts) - and definitely much better, then Prom. Sun, Salamanders bolter porn, but to say bluntly -

I concur - best DG from James Swallow was in the FOTE, but Robs DG in the 'Distant Echos of Old Night' was cool, even if at points to blunt. But thats exactly as i mentioned this Legion.

Well deal with it. The Ultramarines were a prominent force in the Heresy and practically led the Scouring, so we'll be seeing much more of them. There's a list of reasons light-years long as to why they are so renowned by the 41st millennium.

LOTN, I know there's some precedent that influenced your reply, but speaking simply as an uninvolved observer...I'd say take a step back, man. There's no need for that.

I'm saying this only because your above post is in striking contrast to your typical ones, which are always at the very least sociable, polite and friendly. I'm not a mod, and I'm certainly not telling you how to act, though!

***

All that having been said, I'd really like to see something resembling a straight-up account of what the authors said re: "Legion novels". Per an earlier post, there was probably ONE Horus Heresy novel that qualified as a book written for the sake of writing about a Legion ('Descent of Angels'). Virtually every other novel that's been written for this series may have featured only one Legion (or, at any rate, one more so than any other), but still focused primarily on advancing the storyline.

As such, I have a hard time getting what the authors were saying when they mentioned not doing "Legion novels". If they mean that the story has gotten to the point where almost every novel will feature two Legions fighting one another or multiple Legions being given a large part (per 'The Unremembered Empire'), that's fine. But it's not as if the series was predominately about one Legion and nothing else.

Cheers,
P.

That's the problem with type, and the reason that I don't do text messages, it doesn't carry tone. I wasn't being harsh, I was just saying that the statements Anakwanar thought were questions addressed to him were just statements, and that even if he is tired of the Ultramarines there's still lots more of them to come in the Heresy. And the Scouring?? They'll probably be in every book, they were everywhere then.

Not surprising at all. It baffles me how Kyme has managed to wangle his way onto the HH team. I guess its who you know not what you know...

Looks like the Salamanders didn't just get butchered on the sands of Isstvan V....

I don't think they'll have much more input in the series. Abnett admitted he was surprised they got a second book, never mind a 3rd. I think Unremembered Empire will be the extent of it for them until the Scouring.
