Words_of_Truth I think ADB made the Lion seem dangerous, Abnett though made him seem like a puppy, I didn't get that dangerous feeling from him.

Angel of Blood I've really liked the First Legion since Savage Weapons. In Descent and Fallen Angels, they just seemed really bland and very generic, the novels themselves were also very poor imo. But since ADB got hold of them, they really seem to have picked up a lot more personality and flavour. The whole knightly aspect of them wasn't really realised very well in the first two novels, but was then made more distinct from Savage Weapons onwards, without being too blatant though I might add. Dan has continued to do well with them in Unremembered Empire. I won't even begin to add how drastically the Lion changed once ADB and Abnett took charge either, for the better.

navynerd1453 Thanks for the info guys. I really wish that they would do a weekender in the US or do what blizzard does and have a virtual ticket where they stream all the panels and you get digital copies of the exclusive fiction sold only at the event.

I cant wait for ADB's new night lords stuff. I would also like to see more Garro and audio dramas.

Yeah they sound cool, although Dark Angels have never been a legion I've been especially fond of.
This one would be a blast - Dan has really cool ideas, and i believe that after the 'Savage weapons' it would be the first normal Dark Angels stuff, i have read in a while. Still i believe that he will deliver, even after the very dull DA in the Unremembered empire

My thoughts exactly.
I hope it turns out better than the other Dark Angels HH stuff(Descent and Fallen) as I wasn't a fan of either.

Kind of, this is a part of the notes taken by Shaggy at the bolthole.

Dreadwing were apparently the 1st Legion's "dirty tricks department" with all sorts of secret and very nasty gear that they really shouldn't have (DA saying that they use it, people start saying "what the f***!") - really shocking stuff.
I like them already.

grandmasterhugo why not, I find to story interesting, sadly the new GK codex ruined it but still
