I guess the thing I'm saying is that as long as the primarch is in one piece they should be able to regenerate. Manus's head is separated from his heart, so he's dead (like a vampire, which can also regenerate unless you take it's head).

Dorn's hand wouldn't just spawn another Dorn like the theory that chopping a worm in half gives you two worms...

I've been slowly losing interest in the HH novels, still not got Mark of Calth, but if this turns out to be true, I think it may make my interesting die a hell lot more.

Yes...but Vulkan is supposedly resurrecting from a charred skeleton, no brain, no heart(s)...all organs incinerated/vapourised

There is also no guarantee that the Vulkan that is dying at the end of the novel is the same time period Vulkan that teleported away...his death scene could be coming many years later and we are simply glimpsing his end. (not that i have read the passages, just going from the spoilers...so there may be information in the chapter that negates this supposition)

Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)

what are we talking about ?
it does not matter how it evolves,
if it is Vulkan and he is dead now, that would be the most crap way of terminating a primarch so far, a true and utter dissapointment,
if he can respawn from a skeletal husk, that would also be utter crap,
in betrayer e.g. Lorgar was nearly killed by plasma burns, I mean that is a long way from being burned to the bare bone.
if Vulkan would be granted the gift of regeneration of whatever in line with the reptilian association of the salamanders that would also be rather lame.
I m curious to see how they are going to write themselves out of this, the only option I see is that the skelet moves to eternia where together with the respawned sanguinus the foundation is placed for he-man and skeletor,
serious, for me this could be a real show stopper in terms of reading 40 (30) K books

I read and enjoyed Kyme's work in the Salamanders' Tome of Fire trilogy; that being said this does seem to be treading along the HH series' disappointing trend of breaking from the cannon.

Yes, I'm also wondering


I'll keep an open mind but I don't know why

I'm not going to say anything about the spoilers, but where did people get that book? I didn't catch any announcements that it was available at some event. Did I miss that? *shame on me*

It was available at the various BL events in England and Ireland over the last couple of months.
