Done with I am slaughter and holy fuck, Beast and his Waagh makes Abbadon and his crusades look like sunday afternoon picnic, jesus christ. Like, whoever doubts in Orks just show him this book and they'll never say anything against them ever. Super excited to read the second book.

Fuck me, an Ork Warboss of hablock size. You can't get more badass than that.

Yes, around that size I guess. Makes Ghaz seem like a snotling.

Begets the question how they managed to kill the Beast, with no primarchs around. Any good ideas?

No idea but considering he's probably wearing titan sized heavy armour, and a mostly likely has a force field as additional protection too, I'd expect nothing less than a sqadron of super-heavy tanks or another titan.

I want to see Beast smash through Astartes ranks by himself as if they were guardsmen. This fucker could prolly break a Bloodthirster in two as if he were nothing. Such hype.

The description of The Beast:

There was little sense of scale, but Maskar appeared to be looking into the eyes of the most immense ork warboss. The creature was so mature, so vast and bloated, its features were distorted. Broken tusks like tree trunks jutted from the cliff edge of its lower jaw. It was staring right out of the screen with tiny, gleaming yellow eyes, its jaw moving. ĎThat bastard thing is aboard the moon,í Heth said. ĎItís their leader. I think heís the size of a damn hab-block, Maskar. Saints of Terra, there hasnít been an ork boss that massive since Ullanor. I mean, they just donít develop to that size any more. Look, look. In the foreground? Those are greenskin warriors. They look like children.í


I say 'Uh oh' for the Imperium! It took Horus at his prime to strike down the overlord of Ullanor.

The mech lord of the rust world Gorro was one of the lesser lieutenants of Overlord Urrlak Urruk on Ullanor.

I speculate that the tight battlle with the mech lord of Gorro, was a strong reason for the Emperor to leave the Great Crusade to Horus. For the simple reason, it was difficult for him to act at his full might, the strain of projecting the astronomican was diminishing his ability. At this point in time, the Emperor was single handedly projecting his psychic might to Terra to project the astronomican, without any psyker sacrifices needed.

Yeah it was a bit surprising to see Emperor get so easily manhandled by an Ork, even if it's an immensly large and powerful warboss, since could have blasted his soul any time before even getting grabbed.

I always felt that Emperor allowed some of these instances to happen so Horus can " rescue " him, and maybe even further enhance their father-son bond? I don't know, anything is possible with Emperor.

Really digging Vangorich's character so far. Quite an intriguing and capable individual, as expected of the grand master of assassins. But also quite devoted to Imperium, compared to certain individuals.
