On a serious note thanks for replying DBC. Your point about the difficulty with loyalist SM's is a valid one and one of the main obstacles I think.

Dead.Blue.Clown God, yes. Would like to see much more of it.

The obvious issue is that it's very, very, very difficult to do when you're dealing with large casts of Space Marine characters. Not impossible, but definitely difficult.

I find it fairly easy with humans, and a little easier with Chaos Marines; I think my Chaos stuff stands up pretty well with the majority of it away from the battlefield. But I'd still love to see way more "domestic 40K".

An Arbitrator series? Well, no one's going to write anything as good as Matt Farrer's Shia Calpurnia stuff, but that would be an incredible challenge.

mal310 Would love to see an Arbites Novel. I really enjoyed Nemesis and enjoyed the investigation at the beginning of the book. I felt that part ended too suddenly though.

Angel of Blood Yeah the 'normal' parts of Eisenhorn, Ravenor and those littler parts in Gaunts Ghosts are always some of my favourite parts. As said, Abnett seems to be particularly good at these sort of stories/sections, it really does make the Eisenhorn series.

Tawa Maybe a dedicated series of Arbites novels?

"Eisenhorn" or "normal" style would both be fine by me

aerogems It might be interesting to have a book that follows just your average citizen who winds up in a Chaos cult.

While maybe not strictly speaking normal, I'd like to see a couple books that take place on Terra. Again not strictly speaking "normal" but AFAIK there haven't been any books on the Age of Apostasy. It could be a good new HH type series that goes more into the politics of running the Imperium, sort of like the old TV show Babylon 5, culminating in the birth of the Sisters of Battle.

I'd also like to see Ian Watson finish off his Inquisition Wars story. It held up pretty well on the whole, but the ending was pure shite.

I would also like to see more books in the general theme of Cain. Something a bit more lighthearted and fun instead of grim and serious. I get grim, gritty and serious is kind of the bread and butter of WH40K, but there's no reason it couldn't have a small sub-series of books which show the lighter side.

neferhet An "Eisenhorn style" novel would see me buying again, definitely. i would love to see an insight on the "common" life of the wh40k universe
