You're probably right although I think at 40-45 a pop they don't stand a chance of selling 2500 limited editions 18 times. The number of limited editions coming out per release has been going down generally. So I was hopeful given the AoS releases pricing it might be more realistically proved at 25!

The standard hardbacks are on Amazon, america, pre order For $17.50 retail. That's the same price as the beast arises books. So I'm expecting similar size and length. Can't see the limited editions going to crazy prices if the hardbacks are going to retail at a sensible price.

I love the length of the beast novels, maybe in the minority on that but it suits me. I can usually easily read one in a week even if I'm really busy and I like a variety of stories. Some of the weighty heresy novels have felt like a huge drag, especially if during the read I have bought a couple of other books that I'm keen to get at.

Wait....Robute was blind this whole time?! WOW!

NEVER FEAR! I BASHED SOME NAILS INTO IT AND NOW IT'S FIXED.
Black Library can get in contact with me and we can sort out some kind of payment method. I mean, forgetting to paint the eyes on Robute is a bit of a noob mistake. I bet they'd feel pretty fucking stupid if they published books with a blind Robute on the cover.

David Annandale will be writting the upcomming 'The hunt for Vulkan'. Im curious to see if he can write a good take on the primarch.

That assumes Vulkan is actually in the book.

No! Dan Abnett doesn't get the Alpha Legion, not the way Rob Sanders does. Sanders is the only author I will accept for the Sons of the Hydra.

I'd say Abnett did them perfectly. Sanders followed on excellently from what Abnett created, but it was Abnett who made the Alpha Legion what they are now in the series. Well actually no, it was Abnett who made them excellent and interesting, Sanders who followed on Abnetts work very well, and then others who have turned them into overpowered moustache twirling douchebags.

I want Abnett to follow up Legion more than anything else in the Horus Heresy series right now.

To be fair, Vulkan is the most boring of all the Primarchs. Nick Kyme can do whatever he pleases with the Primarch as long as he stays away from Konrad Curze.

Yes to me it sounds like a red herring.

Rob Saunders built a lot of the Alpha Legion from Dan Abnetts work, but I can agree that he is the only to date that have gotten the Legion right besides Dan. Either of them are fine by me.

McNeill gave a peaceful Perturabo who didn't care for any of this. Surely it would fit him during the Great Crusade, not in the Horus Heresy. He is supposed to be bitter, which is what I got from The Crimson Fist. Just justify that bitterness and you got a resentful great evil character. But then depending on when the story takes place, I can deal with McNeill taking on the character, like him during the Great Crusade years. If it's more HH, I would want French to do it.
