Stephen74 For me I Graham can be really long winded and irrelevant in his descriptive writing, but I think his dialogue between characters is excellent.

Garviel loken. Haven't read angel exterminated but have read McNeill other heresy work. I don't see why people don't like him.thoughts?

They are corrupted.
I wholeheartedly agree.

Agree to this

sadLor Over at B&C, it was mentioned that there was a big event between the events of Angel Exterminatus and Vengeful Spirit, and it will be revealed in some form...(audio, short story, novella, who knows) If you've read both, obviously you realize this is necessary as there was a huge shift in character for Perturabo.

I think this Primarch needs at least a novella to open him up. Other Primarchs got so much more attention!
Hey hopefully you like it, I actually wish the best for the Heresy Series. There were certain aspects of him that seemed interesting. Yet, this is post Istvaan and Phall and he seemed like a completely different character.

theurge33 I think they will get some follow up. After AE, Perturabo is still left out there on his own to brood / rage etc. In my eyes he has a way to go before he falls. He still has the siege engines for terra.

Unlike many others, I liked the portrayal of Perturabo in both phall and AE. AE went into his psyche in depth and in Phall, it was more of a snap shot of a him as a primarch at war (stern, unforgiving). I also loved the iron warriors in AE. I had not read the 40k iron warriors books, so there was no complaints about re-use of characters from me.
