Default Horus Heresy: Path of Heaven & Grey Talon





Please god let these be novels. No more novellas, please Black Library. I so badly want to see more real Horus Heresy novels.

I think one of these will be the full novel sequel to Scars. Probably Path to Heaven seeing as how my man Khan is shown in all his glory. Grey Talon will probably be either an accompanying Audio Drama or Novella. While I would like it to be an Audio Drama, the way the cover is laid out with action to the right and background to the left is the way Novel/ Novella covers are normally done so its probably a accompanying Novella. Probably both by Chris as the White Scars it seems are his turf for now.

Also, the Name "Path to Heaven" has the kind of ring to it of a journey, with Terra as "Heaven". Could this be the first book in that Gauntlet arc that was mentioned recently and be the White Scars final voyage to Terra? I hope so!

I really hope Path to Heaven is another full length Scars novel, and my Wraight. I've seen more criticisms than I expected on Scars, but personally it's one of my favorite Heresy novels. I love what Wraight has done with the V Legion, as well as the Khan himself and really want to see more from him.

If just one of those is a full length, then I'll be happy. Only one will be though, the other will be audio or novella.

I welcome more Scars!

To be picky, I have to say that while the artwork is awesome (as usual) I don't like the pose and I don't like the repeated layout used.
I studied design and illustration for 4 years (right before I became a killing machine), so I understand the reason the artist has used such compositions and I totally agree that it's awkward having a Primarch fighting a daemon whilst also being visible and clear to the audience, but we've seen the same essential composition on the last 100 heresy novels.

Look, I skillfully created a HH cover of my own. Look back through the artwork of all the Heresy novels and you can see that this basic template is used on most of the covers.

Sure, it works, but as someone who is just as interested in the cover art as the story, it's getting a bit dull. A single Primarch/SM positioned to the right of frame, shit happening behind.
While I do not dispute the skill of the artist (it's awesome) the compositions could be a little more, well, varied.
Interestingly, the initial HH novels didn't suffer from this issue. They were pictures of the greater battle and not just the main character standing in the right of the frame.

Mild complaint over.

Grey Talon is the name of a short in the 'Meduson' anthology, it's nothing new sadly. It just provides some background of the characters in Little Horus and (presumably) Scars 2

It's new material for most but sadly not a novella/novel

The depiction of the vampiric WS in the bottom pic looks like he has Colchisian runes on his armour. Is it DG in the background?

Those are Sons of Horus not Death Guard, and the runes aren't Colchisian - looking closer at a higher quality picture they look like some sort of Asian Cuneiform, so likely Chogorian.

It's Hibou Khan, the one and the same that gives Little Horus his facelift. So yeah, that's Chogorian on his armour and he's fighting those Sons of Horus.

It will be something different, I doubt they'd give a single short story a hardcover release, and eventually Meduson will be released in a regular format. So this is probably a new story with the same name, or it's the Meduson anthology in a regular format but under a new name.
