Gree I'll correct on my previous post. I did like Storm of Iron and much of his Warhammer Fantasy contributions. The former is particularly special because it's one of the first Black Library novels were Chaos actually won.

That was a pretty amazing event, especially to Chaos players like me. My Emperor's Children army was also at least inspired by his work with Fulgrim as well.

Really, everything else is ''meh'' or somewhat good. Except for McNeill's Ultramarines. I particularly loathe his Ultramarines series, McNeill having written the Ultramarines as hidebound morons save for his pet character, Ventris. What's worse is that other authors appeared to have picked up the interpretation. It's gotten so bad I stopped playing Ultramarines because of his novels.

It's a fairly philosophical piece, think that's why I enjoyed The Last Church so much.

I've not got a problem with Mr McNeill's writing - Thousand Sons is excellent, Fulgrim was a good read. Ultramarine's, not bad at all.

Zondarian The Last Church was the most enjoyable short short so far for me. And by a considerable margin at that. Although I have to agree that many of his novels are the weaker in the HH series in my opinion. And out of interest it was the portrayal of the religious man that impressed me, not the Emperor.

Brother Subtle The Last Church is still my favourite heresy short. Its the only short I've re-read, and I've done that twice. I also loved Mechanicum and think its very underrated in the Heresy series. Saying that... I've found most of his recent Heresy work a bit of a slog to get through. McNeill is very hit and miss.

Of course, this is simply my opinion and not fact.

Vaz Holding my thoughts. The guy can't write for shit, but sometimes he can pull something out of his arse. Thousand Sons was okay (and yes, I've just read it again to see if it was as good as I thought it was originally; and it really wasn't up there with some of the better books which have come out since then; Prince of Crows, Crimson Fist, Savage Weapons, Know No Fear, After De'Shea, Betrayer, The First Heretic.

This... Will be pitiful, I think. Worst Heresy books in my eyes;

1. The Outcast Dead
2. Battle for the Abyss
3. Angel Exterminatus
4. Calth that was
5. The Reflection Crack'd
6. Rules of Engagement
7. The Last Church
8. Death of a Silversmith
9. The Dark King

10. Fallen Angels

Guess who the bolded authors are.
