Default Carcharodons: The Red Tithe



BL are really outdoing themselves today. Bile and Crowe both getting their own trilogy, a new Kharn novel being released piece by piece, a sequel to Baneblade, a brand new Horus Heresy series, and now above all that: A trilogy about a Space Marine Chapter THAT ISN'T FIRST FOUNDING!!!! That alone would make it a Must Buy from me, but the freaking Space Sharks?! Oh i'll be buying this on Day One. I haven't read anything by Robbie MacNiven yet, but I already like him immensely for talking BL into supporting this and for having the guts to write about some Astartes that have never been a bloody Legion.

Actually, the Sharkies have heavilly been implied to be cast out members of the Ravenguard legion, Pre-heresy. Corax was -seriously- displeased with what he saw when he was reunited with his legion. The terran born ravenguard being slavetakers. Which did not sit well with a freedom fighter like himself.

And a charardon was once examined and found to have degraded ravenguard markers in his geneseed.

Yeah, but the Predation Fleets are cool enough and non-main-Legion-forces enough to be awesome either way.

Plus god damn, Carcharadons are badasses.

Ok I knew that last part, but where the hell did the first part come from?? I've never read that before.

Either way though, they are distinct enough culturally and aesthetically that they can't really be seen as a Legion, if what you put there is actually true in-universe.

Just from two shorts I've read by him, MacNiven is solid. Check out A Song for the Lost.

Scroll down to Shade Lord Arkhas Fal

I remember Arkhas fal being discussed with the forge world horus heresy book involving the ravenguard legion.
