Default Horus Heresy: The Purge - Limited Edition

Yes fellow Heretics, it's another Black Library limited edition. Titled The Purge and due for release later this month:

http://www.blacklibrary.com/horus-he...d-edition.html

But here's something that may make this a release most will be watching. Based on the glyphs on the Coming Soon Cover, the quotation on the page and the image of what looks like Lorgar Aurelian on the page, and the small tidbit on the [email protected] Blog, which is here;

We’re not giving much more away just yet, but if you’re excited about the prospect of an upcoming Word Bearers novel, we have created a set of suitably Heretical looking desktop wallpapers for you, complete with blood-smeared Colchisian Script.
I do believe that this is a novella focusing on the purging of the God-Emperor worshippers in the ranks of the Word Bearers that was referenced in The First Heretic and vital to the plot of Dark Creed. And it's Anthony Reynolds! Will definitely be getting a copy of this one.

Well I'm all in for them now, I've reached that retarded point where I've invested so much money in the Linited Editiond and series as a whole that I can't stop now. Having said that, I agree with you that it must be the purge of the Word Bearer loyalists, something I also very much want to read.

Just like you said LotN, my guess is that it takes place prior to Isstvan V during the purge of the Word Bearers as the loyalists were culled by Lorgar. I'm a bit torn in this as I cant for all in the world see any of the LE worth it. Though getting his autograph is seducting. No I'll wait for the public release in 1-2 years.

Hmm, dunno why but I get the feeling that BL might return to doing a week's availability, rather than restricted numbers for this novella. Or maybe I'm optimistic because I won't get paid till the week after it's out.

I'll probably invest in this one given I enjoyed Reynolds' Word Bearers and I consider the plot to have a lot of potential.

Hrm, now that looks like a book worth picking up. Could be interesting if some of them survives to fight on the loyalist side later, but mistrusted because of their zealotry.

This one might actually be worth buying unlike the past few limited editions. Looking forward to it.

I doubt any of them survived - this purge occurred decades before the Horus Heresy (in the time after Lorgar entered the Eye of Terror). We also know that far less were purged than the 'faithless legions' purged on Isstvan III (according to Erebus anyway). I doubt Erebus or Kor Phaeron allowed any to survive.

Well, they didnt get that Word Bearer in Unremembered Empire, whom remained true to the worship of the Emperor and wanting to kill Lorgar for straying. Cant remember his name.
