Default Vengeful Spirit

Some information on the coming Horus Heresy novel Vengeful Spirit has been released, along with this;

This fits nicely with the small amount of known background for Molech - where the mechanicus knight household Devine betrays the emperor and switches sides, becoming the first Slaaneshi Hell knights and scout titans.
Horus looks badass as usual, and I can't wait to see the full cover spread with the Sons of Horus backing him up and the Vengeful Spirit hovering in the background. I've included what info I could find about the Battle of Molech, which appeared only in WD 190 apparantely.

As far as I can remember, Molech was one of the final few obstacles on the Warmaster's path to Terra. Imperial forces had mustered there in a vain attempt to halt the rebels' advance. Horus invaded and wiped out the Imperial forces with the help of House Devine (the ruling House) who had become corrupted by Slaanesh.

I'm happy with Molech providing the context for this novel, yet I will remain sceptical about Mcneill writing it - at least until reviews begin to break.

So we get the Sons of Horus back in the spotlight and a Mechanicus Knight House devoted to Slaanesh. Very nice.

Well one thing that those who are leery of McNeill can be pleased about is that he can't do what he did with Angel Exterminatus and bring back a host of characters from 40k. The Sons of Horus don't have any 40k characters beyond the obvious one, and the sole few we know survive like Falkus Kibre and Devram Korda. The only characters he can bring back are the cast from the Horus Rising trilogy and they should return because they are important characters, plus i'm interested in seeing how Grael "Warlocked" Noctua does in the New Mournival and if Tybalt Marr has fallen or if he remains simply locked in grief over Verulam Moy. And this may be where Devram Korda becomes a devotee of Slaanesh as he is in 40k; really am looking forward to revisiting the original Heresy novels cast after nearly 30 books.

So the story is not close to Istvaan V on the HH timeline?

Finally..... I have been wondering after Graham McNeil's contribution to The Imperial Truth with his short story The Devine Adoratrice. After reading that short story I was so fucking confused as to just wtf it had to do with anything of the greater Horus Heresy. Now thinking back on it, and with this piece of info, it finally all makes sense.... If only I had known about the planet Molech and its role in the HH before hand it would have saved me so much grief lol.

Khyzer could you possibly give us a spoiler as to what the short story was about, and the cast?

Would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

I am unimpressed by that Horus pose. It looks very unnatural - people's bodies do not tend to swing that way mid-stride.
