Just got back from the BL Live event, they had lots of art displayed - these two were my favorite:

Yeah, that looks to be an artwork for the existing short story, The Crimson Fist. That would mean its the battle at Phal, where the Imperial Fists did quite a number on the Iron Warriors until they retreated back to Terra; then they took terrible losses.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Interesting. The ebook & audio standalone releases reuse the Shadows of Treachery cover. Why would it need new art? A standalone print release?

As darkreever said, the Imperial Fists took a battering at Phall, yet it can still be considered a minor victory for them.

Besides, just because a piece of artwork shows one Imperial Fists Space Marine dying does not suddenly mean that the Imperial Fists have become 'whipping boys'. It's these kind of comments which make the 40k/BL fanbase out to be so deluded.

Not only that but the Shadows of Treachery cover focussed on Phall and Crimson Fist anyway.

Strange.

Yeah I missed that bit. I thought it would be another story about them getting mauled.

Yeah it was me jumping to conclussions. My bad. I would say that's so far one of the best storys about the Imperial Fists.

Besides, it makes sense in context for the Imperial Fists to be the ones getting massacred right now. Three loyalist legions have been out of the front lines for a while, another three are in Ultramar (after going through their own beatings) and another two are elsewhere. The Fists are the only ones really fighting right now and they're facing the entirety of the traitor forces.

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).

Might be a slight exaggeration there.
