"We're gonna need a bigger gun"

I like David's work so far, not sure he is ready for a full HH novel-tilt as of yet, but needs must it seems. Just how many more of the 'shattered legions' can be left? Not many and against xeno-dinosaurs... they'd be fooked. For me, after Vulkan Lives, I feel like the stories with those left over legionaries is done. Opinions?

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?"

Maybe not done yet. Think about it, we've really only had a couple of short stories focusing entirely on what the shattered legions are doing, and even then there's not been a lot of focus on the salamanders or iron hands. Apart from a couple of stories dealing with isolated squads( Vulkan Lives and Unremembered Empire).
I get the feeling that this is like Scars- a part of the heresy that's not had a lot of fluff on it finally getting the spotlight.

Why won't Dan and ADB touch the Alpha Legion? Dan I could understand, feeling been there, done that. Is ADB afraid that the preassure is too high? His small cameo-wise part of Alpharius in Aurelian is great, and there he only says a few lines.

Well it's just the small lurking description. He didn't even say anything but the presence in the writing is awesomely good.

Black Library is going to drag the Heresy out for a long as possible. Buckle up kiddos and just enjoy what you can.

I remember back in the day when board game novel tie-ins would actually move the plot along. BattleTech, how I miss you.
