Sneak attacks don't get to last several weeks. In fact, if your enemy is still fighting you with most of his power intact past Day One, you clearly failed at a "sneak attack" and you're in all likelihood about to be annihilated.
Where was it said that the battle lasted more for a few days in the previous version? And why would that be unrealistic otherwise? It was indeed the entire point of the previous fluff that the Word Bearers tried to eliminate the Ultramarines but got bogged down in warfare.

I wish I could only share your opinion. For Calth became utterly cheapened after Know No Fear and I cannot find anything to be proud about it as an Ultramarine fan, which is one of the primary reasons why I stopped playing them.

To Gree - man Know no Fear was awesome, but i will agree with you on Mark of Calth - it was terrible.

Mine showed up in Michigan earlier this week. (Not quite sure when - I was out of town for work, and came back to find it on my desk. )

I read a lot of graphic novels and this had some of the best artwork I ever seen.

Was anyone else annoyed by how in the panel with the ships firing on each other, the preceding order was to ready the port broadside batteries but both ships were presenting their starboard sides to each other?

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).
