Yeah, I wonder how long they'll keep this LE business up. Have any of the recent ones sold out yet?

It's a shame, because concluding the main story wouldn't be a barrier to subsequent side stories.

Ho hum.

Trust me, I aren't buying them. I'm just sick of being excluded from reading these stories and as CtS said, it feels more and more like milking instead of producing good progressive stories.

I don't mind them milking the Heresy, however, it seems to have lost a lot of potential. The series started having a few New York Times Best Sellers, but they didn't evolve in terms of quality. Its not like they didn't have any good novels in the last couple years. Frankly, I was surprised some of the novels didn't get that New York Times Best Seller status.

But... lets be honest, its kind of hard to invest in. I guess they are relying on the small portion of our fan base that can afford to buy such mass quantity, but I feel its really aiming small with what they had accomplished. They had an Ultramarine movie... which was like... come on! Not only was it very mediocre, but it was disappointing that GW didn't see something that went beyond the small hobby and expand on it.

Fair post, CKC, and I agree with it all, except... I do mind them milking it.
