Oh sorry yes, when presenting it like that they aren't opposites. You are indeed right.

Angel of Blood Hearing that Warmaster is his main focus at the moment......that's just awesome. Thanks for the links!

Dan Abnett interview from Weekender as promised - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8PR...imVxc9tWC_pgzw
The only issue - is a screaming fans on background, but nothing can be done about that, sadly
P.S. Chris Wraight is soon to follow (This channel is not for promotions - it's a test channel where the video posted on preedit and for fans to enjoy)

Lord of the Night Ah, well then if it comes down to what i'd rather read first; a novel about the birth of the Black Legion and the New Warmaster vs The First Templar, or a novel about the Emperor and the War in the Webway... come on, it's me. The answer's obvious.

You are right, but I do favour this stereotype with no development over the stupid and boring loyalist characters many authors tend to throw out, like Thorpe and Swallow.

2. Alpha Legion versus Shattered Legions? It could be interesting, but it's tough for me to imagine a scenario wherein a Coalition of Legionaries Who Don't Like Each OtherTM are able to compete with a cohesive legion whose calling card is teamwork. But wait, what am I thinking? SHARROWKYN.

3. Angels of Caliban... All I can say is that Gav Thorpe hit most of the right notes with Master of Sanctity, but the audio dramas he's done for the Caliban plot thus far have not impressed me.

4. I'd much rather read The Crimson King instead of Battle for Macragge.
I agree on what you wrote here.

I think it actually would be interesting to read about, but thats just me,

Couldn't agree more.

MontytheMighty Reading Talon of Horus right now. Good stuff. Looking forward to Master of Mankind and Nightfall (of all things)

Let me be frank. I don't like Curze and I don't like the Night Lords. I don't dislike them, but nothing about the legion particularly appeals to me. The Blood Angels are one of my favourite legions...and yet, I would rather read a NL novel trilogy by ADB than suffer through a single BA short story by James Swallow. Such is ADB's writing skill compared the bulk of BL authours. RANT OVER

Malus Darkblade I'd rather the man take the better half of a century with MoM then for him to rush it.

Depicting the Emperor in the manner he deserves will be a massive effort.
