Default Larger version of WS/SW/AL Chondax novel: a fight on the bridge?

I'm thinking either they're arguing about whether to help the Wolves or to abandon them to their fate...or the Terran White Scars are showing their true colours (Horus sympathisers).

I think the former is more likely but what say you guys

As I've said in the other thread. I think could very well be the traitors amongst the White Scars showing their true colours. But then it also looks like they're arguing more than fighting, so many the former is right.

Well, a coup would be pretty futile with the Khan around...unless they're trying to convince the Khan to join Horus, I suppose that's possible as Horus appears to be the Khan's only friend among the primarchs (his friendship with Russ seems to have been retconned)

I'm still guessing it's just an argument between officers. I have a hard time picturing White Scars confronting actual traitors with just loud words and big hand gestures!

Indeed, if they were traitor sympathizers there would be scimitars flying and bolt pistols blazing rather than just a debate punctuated by threatening gestures.

At first glance I simply took it as AL ships attacking WS ships out there in space, and a mechanicum adapt readying the ship, while the Khan gives orders to a subordinate. And WS Sergeants giving orders to their men to ready the boarding pods. I took it all as simple "hustle and bustle" of a command ships loading bay getting ready for void warfare after a surprise attack by the AL.

Maybe that was just my naive view of the situation and actually it is something deeper like a schism beginning to happen among the WS

I thought it was just the hustle and bustle of a busy bridge before I saw this version of the pic.

This version is clearer and it shows the Scars' expressions much more clearer. I definitely think there's some sort of intense argument going on. The ship blowing up in the background could be a Space Wolves vessel and the WS are debating whether to help or to follow Dorn's order immediately.

Oh, I didn't even think of that... lol that makes it all seem way cooler and adds a lot more emotion to the picture. That one WS on the left pointing does look pretty damn pissed and accusatory now that I really look closely.

Not one of them look happy. The Khan is raging by the looks of it.

I would go with arguing about whether to help the Wolves or not.

Like some people have said above, 'finger pointing' would be the last thing I would expect if the terrans revealed their treachery on the bridge.

Really pumped for this novel! The WS finally make their appearance...over 25 books into the series.
