Where the second idea is concerned... it's never mentioned. And if such a blow was somehow struck, it just robs the impact of the whole Tuchulcha angle.
Just wild speculation then on my behalf regarding that. Hopefully it's bad choice of words for the synopsis and nothing that will come up in the actual audio.

I hear you. I hope I didn't come off too over-the-top with my last response!

Actually Thorpe's DA was quite good, and his 'Lion' novella was ok. But the follow up and his second W40K DA book are meh

I dunno, I don't think I'll ever be forgiving him for killing Nemeil off like he did. Not because I really like Nemeil or anything, just because it was an appaling decision and just plain retarded.

It's not a Night Lord, it's a Word Bearer, I think - Red Shoulder Pad. The other option for Red Armour is Blood Angel, Thousand Son, or at a push, one of the Vlka Fenryka brotherhoods.

In regards to the "full strength" legion, they were split up, with Corswain taking on Typhon of the Death Guard while the Lion came to Ultramar - as I understood it, on the orders of the Lion himself. With Sevatar in prison on Ultramar (someone completely forgotten about during TUE), it makes sense it's after, but still...

yeh, that's bad writing.

You mean in the picture? No, it's definitely a Night Lord. He has dark blue armour with red on his shoulder pad (eg. like these models).

I've just listened to Master of the First - not bad, not great either though. If anyone wants to know the plot:



Also, just an FYI - there doesn't seem to be any direct link between Master of the First and Long Night.

Any chance of the spoilers for the Long Night mate?

A two year old with a crayon and the back of a mcdonalds colouring poster could have done a better job. It was, without any contest, the worst thing anyone has written. ever. Forget the storyline, in fact, I have. All I have is the trauma of the worst writing style imaginable. I can still feel the pain in my skull as my brain tried to process what was in front of it. It should be taught in university as an example of what is achievable if you face mash a keyboard long enough and have a tame publisher.

Reading Gav Thorpe is like listening to George Bush Jnr https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKgPY1adc0A

Thorpe isn't really a bad writer.

His ideas and fluff abuse is what makes his books horrible.
