You mean the teaser from Haley's next book that has to do with what Shield of Baal started?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I got mine a couple of days ago it stunning! I'm still reading Magnus but I have to admit I keep getting Dante off the shelf just to look at it! Looking forward to reading it next.
I can't work out why Titanicus was made differently, and I agree poorer looking. Might be different in reality.
David Annandale put up pics of the warlord book on twitter though and it looks awesome.

I got titanicus today. Much nicer in reality, not quite as hot as Dante but still pretty awesome. I had forgotten how big a book it is! Wish they had reprinted Eisenhorn in this format instead of the box set

Just finished Dante and thought it was amazing!!

Loved the view it gave of how the blood angel aspirants are chosen, the struggles they have with he two flaws and the difference in how they create space marines compared to other chapters.

The writing of thought was excellent through out and the prophesy bit about the great hunger has me re-read it about six times, that was massive for me.

8.5 out of ten easy

Just finished it and damn was it a good read. So few Warhammer 40,000 books mange to actually portray the grim darkness of the 41st millennium and the moment I started reading the little short story at the beginning of the Limited Edition I knew I was in for a good ride. The sense of hopelessness and darkness just kept growing in the book and so much of it was just from the implications of the events going on.

Whilst its definitely a character study into Dantes younger years for the most part, I also felt that it still managed to somehow *advance* the setting of the universe by building up to two (and possibly a third, big implication there if they actually go for it) cataclysmic events that have begun unfolding. Whilst there is war and mayhem, this book definitely avoided the bolter porn trap a lot of Space Marine books fall into.

I felt it ended a bit abruptly and felt like it concentrated maybe a bit too heavily on Dantes younger years over some more pivotal events of Dantes life, but I am not too bothered since it was a very enjoyable read and I am happy to see Haley is continuing the story in another book, which by the title sounds like it will pick up right after this one and I am very much looking forward to its release.

Can you give some info on said limited edition short story?

I think the book was mainly meant to flesh out Dante's background and character and setting up for the blood red meat for the Blood Angels in the Devastation of Baal.

Oh my, seems they are headed for the same fate as the Blood Drinkers. But seriously, blackmailing their primogenitor chapter like this? Such spite, even if it would be the end of themselves as well.
