Just started Throneworld. Have enjoyed the series so far, more for the portrayal of the Orks as a real and present threat to the survival of the Imperium, as opposed to most of what we've seen of them to date almost as comic relief rather than a threat to be taken as seriously as the hive fleets or black crusades. The fact that the quality continues to remain high despite each book flipping from author to author is also a big plus.

Just finished reading Beast Must Die. This is insane. How the hell can one Ork Warboss be so OP !? Basically this whole shebang needs Great Crusade 2.0 to begin all over again and the Emperor and Horus Lupercal to be physically present to deal with this situation. The legions should not have been divided IMHO. Guilliman's mistake came back to bite the Imperium in it's incompetent ass.

Fortunately for the Imperium Ghazghkull is nowhere near the Beast's level, yet. But if he can become even close to what the Beast actually is, with the Imperium's current state in 40k... it won't be good for anyone.

But with the Beast's nature being revealed, it raises many many many questions;

I think next week is more likely. This Saturday will see the game Death Masque go up for pre-order, while next Saturday the new Corvus Blackstar transport goes up for pre-order, most likely with the Deathwatch Kill-Team kits. That is probably when Watchers goes up.

And why is no one talking about that final epitaph of Vulkan at the beginning of the last chapter, eh !? The guy basically called it for the next 8500 years, and now we know the origin of the introduction to every 40k piece of literature !!!

Ah yes, that was an incredible moment. To know where the signature words, the paragraph that sums up 40k, comes from was quite a revelation, especially that it was Vulkan that said it.

Hrm, my thought regarding the origin of the Deathwatch. Simply that the Imperium is finally wising up to the fact that the orks are a true threat to be taken seriously at last. So far theyve constantly and grossly underestimated the ork cunning. Thinking them just savage and mindless brutes, and the hordes of the beast is anything but mindless and undisciplined. It will take an entirely different approach among the astartes and the imperium to deal with such a xenos threat. Hence the founding of the Deathwatch.
