Why are you not sticking models to it, and spray-painting them?

'Vulkan Lives' by any chance? It really should be memorable by now.

MontytheMighty I am happy for you. To each his own

SoL Berzerker I am probably 100 pages from the finish and I like it quite a bit. Not my favorite, but it succeeds in entertaining me.

Action scenes have been nice and brutal and the characters are good enough, quite a few memorable quotes even.

All in all I'm enjoying it.

ckcrawford I looked at the thread and was actually kind of hopeful. Lol. Hopefully they get it back in flux.

B - You dislike the book - I enjoyed the plot, I thought the characterisation was done well and enjoyed the storyline. You're all free to dislike the book, that's your opinions and that's fine.

As a final thought I think this thread just shows how this forum has developed. IMO it's no longer a place where I feel my opinion is welcome. That's fine, no-one forces me to come here. It's like I have a morbid fascination on what people are hating on now that keeps me coming back here. However at least I now have the evidence on what happens if I post something which dares to break from the general consensus of hate which seems to pervade these forums now.
Nick Kyme, is that you?

Haha...in all seriousness, get some thicker skin mate. Not agreeing with your opinion does not equal not welcoming your opinion.

I also thought you were being sarcastic as "wow, wow, wowy" seems to be rather over the top

hailene Whoa, so the first post wasn't sarcasm? I haven't read the book so I can't judge it but...

Why do you perceive the Death Guard to be evil? Some could argue some of the Legions have fallen to being "evil" (the slaughter of civilians of Terra by the EC, the general massacres done by Khorne's followers, the harshness of later Imperial forces, the Night Lords in general), but the Death Guard haven't struck me as particularly evil.

Or at least so far, really. Sure, they might have a low opinion of humans, but that's not necessarily evil.

Angel of Blood I genuinely thought you were being sarcastic in your opening post. Seriously.
12-09-15 08:29 PM
Khorne's Fist I think you're way off base. Go look at the discussions re The First Heretic, A Thousand Sons, Betrayer, or Know No Fear. By and large they are all very positive. However, most people are of the opinion that the series has taken a bit of a nose dive lately.

You disagree. Fine. But don't throw a hissyfit just because you think people are hating. We're not hating for the sake of it, we're hating on something we see as subpar and was only churned out to keep revenue flowing, rather than trying to advance the storyline of a series that most of us have invested years, hundreds of €//$, and not a small amount of emotion in. Forgive us if we feel we have a right to call foul when we feel let down.
