See that's the thing. I actually like Mcneill's Perturabo, but as you said, it seems more at place at the time of the Great Crusade. What Mcneill failed to do, was convince me of Perturabos reasons for joining Horus. From everything I saw of his character in Angel Exterminatus, he should be loyal, he would in fact make an excellent loyalist.

But to be fair. No one has done that. Of all the Primarchs, I'm least convinced by Perturabo and his reasonings, they all just seem poor excuses.

I am very convinced by Lorgars decision. But to be fair I don't understand why any primarch stays loyal, when there are other real gods that can literally make them immortal.

BL are creating quite a stir over this. I think I revise my previous price guess to an obscene amount for a small book. The hype is starting to piss me off a little.... Which is rare I'm usually nuts for these things

Numbered, limited edition series with a great displayable cover? *sigh* Oh BL, how you do woo me.


On a secondary note- I do wish that these limited eds would come with a complementary ebook copy so I can read them without risking the actual book.

Ordered.... I thought 40 was steep enough, it's a pretty small book, talon of Horus was 45 and it was a door stop. But it is what it is, looking forward to getting a look at it. It will be interesting to see how fast it sells...

55, so about the same price and size as Ragnar Blackmane. And there will be 17 more...

Nope, after all the trilogy boxsets and HH stuff they put out recently, I think I will pass on this one. Might buy one if ADB does Lorgar or Angron.

Yep, as I thought, ridiculously overpriced for a microscopic amount of content. So not worth it, pass. Especially when you consider they are planning 18 in total.

So I read the free extract and was reasonably excited. I liked it. And with Path of Heaven being apparently being the best book BL have released in a while, I was looking forward to this.

Now, all that good-will has just vanished. 40 for 178 pages?! Fuck off.

My contribution to the Renegades saga. Check it out

My growing IIIrd legion stuff:

17th Millenial (Homebrew Fluff) - "Children of the Emperor, death to his foes!" (Project Log)

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:

Yip it's 22.47 pence per page or 0.09 pence per word, assuming a page of 250 words. It's an expensive wee shite.
