Default Next HH White Scars novel cover art



It might just be that the photo makes it look shit, but I am overall rather unimpressed by it.

Looks 'ite.

Reminds me of a post-teleportation scene.

Who's writing this? I hoped Abnett would tackle the Scars, but that's doubtful with Unremembered Empire ready to become the best novel just around the corner. Wraight? What was his novella like, generally, for those who read it?

It made me more interested in the White Scars after years of being indifferent to them.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

I'll withhold judgement until I see it up close. Just pleased to see they are finally getting around to giving them some love. (That limited ed. novella doesn't count.)

Same. Looking good from what I can see.

I'm only guessing, seeing as how particular authors pick up certain legions for the HH (IE - Abnett Luna Wolves/Ultramarines, ADB World Eaters/Word Bearers etc...) Chris Wraight for the White Scars?

Current PhD student at Exeter University - "For the Glory - The Development of Battlefield tactics throughout the Ancient World."

Moments that amused me; Sevatar Prince of Crows

(When running into Alastor Rushal "The Raven" on the Invincible Reason)
"You won't believe how I got here."

(When told that a Commodore has survived an ambush and is now the highest ranking survivor.)
"That makes him the new fleet admiral. Offer him my insincere congratulations on a rank he earned purely by being the last naval officer standing. But what's the bad news?"

I'm hoping Wraight, as I imagine both Abnett and ADB are both pretty busy at the moment with their upcoming Heresy novels. Hoping we might see quite a bit of Russ in this one as well.

Love the cover art. Although, I hope BL does something about the art inside of the hardbacks because that really needs to change. I think the art inside should be of the same style or at least something similar.

It was good.

Of course, it doesn't tackle (never mind resolve) major plot developments affecting the course of the Heresy. It's a limited edition novella What it does do is provide insight into the culture, background, mentality and overall flavour of the White Scars legion. It does so pretty well in my opinion.

I'm very excited for any additional HH WS works. I just hope this one will be a general-release novel.

That art looks good...only Jaghatai's head seems to be a tad big
