Default Phalanx: Soul Drinkers april 2012

So, just for all you soul drinkers fans ( i know they aren't the best written, but they are enjoyable) i thought i would tell people that Phalanx, the next, and possibly final book in the series, is up for release in April next year. I am happy that i will be able to finally find out what fate they meet.

Hopefully it should be a good ending.
I wonder if the imperial fists are involved from the name of the book?

They are, Hammer & Bolter, BL's monthly ezine has contained a chapter of the book in every edition.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

I should think the fists are involved, since they captured the remaining Soul Drinkers and are now on the Phalanx (IF space-fortress/monastery)

To my drug-addled mind, the voice sounded like that of the Emperor himself, and I found myself wondering if I should have spent a bit more time in the temple, and a bit less in bars, gambling dens and bordellos, but it seemed a little late to be worrying about that now. If I had indeed arrived at the Golden Throne, I'd just have to hope its occupant was in a good mood, and try to steer the conversation on to safer ground at the earliest oppertunity.

The ending won't be good for them I'm afarid -- it rarely is in 40k.

They'll probably be flayed alive and ejected out the cargo hold. Unfortunate as it may be.

I'm really looking forward to reading this book. I really enjoy the Soul Drinkers, they were my first Space Marine chapter to read about.

Has no one else been keeping up with it in Hammer & Bolter?

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

I have read every hammer-and-bolter to date. I really like the soul drinkers and I wish that they had been given better attention. There is a lot of potential. Although Phalanx is definitely a good read so far.

Lexandro~70: They have an entire Omnibus, as well as a limited edition Novella devoted to the Soul Drinkers.

How much do the Raven Guard have? One Horus Heresy book that isn't even released yet.

So they have got more attention than even a first founding legion. Also, I've enjoyed the chapters in H&B so far - can't wait to see how it ends.

Six books, an omnibus, a limited edition novella and a monthly feature in BL's magazine?

That's more than the freaking Blood Angels. It's about the same amount as the Space Wolves and Ultramarines, and way more than the Black Templars and Dark Angels have got so far. And they're the flagship ranges of GW.

It's almost physically impossible for the Soul Drinkers to get more attention.
