forkmaster Well what I think is so special about HH is the big events that turned the whole around, like battle for Prospero, Calth, Issvaan. They arent 40k where a whole subsector in war doesnt affect on the greater scheme. Thats why Nemesis isnt so highly fond of (I think its ok but pretty meeh, not contributing much).

I would want greater insight on the Legions, Primarchs and ect ect. But I want big turning events with that also, not a random story how a Primarch came to battle on a planet and then leave when he's doen.

raider1987 TBH with the heresy they really could do anything they wanted within the timeline starting with the unification wars and go all the way up to the great scouring. I mean unification has already been in the series with the (excellent) Last Church short story in Tales of Heresy. And you really can't expect the series to end with 'and the emperor pimp slapped horus into oblivion, the end'.

Also, they can invent a lot of events out of nowhere. I mean What happened in some of the books, Nemesis, for example has never been covered with the fluff. I mean there were 18 legions, there could easily be a book on each legion before, during and after the heresy during the great scouring. And the imperial Army has only really been a major factor in Legion, they deserve more of a role. Remember, a third of the Imperial Army fell with horus.

AND there is the Age of darkness, the 7 years where nobody knows much about. The thousands of other battles for worlds during the heresy. The time period of 20k-32k could all be covered during the heresy. Hell we might even get an Emperor origins book, and when was he born? Like 3,000 bc or something like that. They could wrap the series up in 5 or 6 books if they just wrapped up the major events, but they could easily do another 15 or 20 or 50.... buy I don't know if they would dilute the series 'special collection' appeal.

Roninman HH series should end with death of Horus. He is the mainpoint of this whole series.

Scouring should get its own like of books maybe similar to Space Marine Battles. Lots of interesting things happened during this time, but they were many years apart.

NIKT208 If I recall correctly at BLL both Dan Abnett and ADB dropped hints about working on the Battle of Calth for next year. With Deliverance Lost, Fear to Tread, and the primarch novellas, next year is looking to be a great year for Heresy fans.

They said that the scouring goes on for years and years and that it would not do it justice to 'fag-end' it on to the Horus Heresy series.

So there is hope yet.

edit: I forget to mention that they do not consider (get ready to cry) the destruction of Caliban to be a HH event so that will not be covered in the HH series either. However, ADB intends to tackle DA v NL soon and he intends to clear up the forum waffle re: whether the DA were completely loyal. The impression I got from ADB (but I might be wrong) is that they were clearly always loyal.

edit 2: getting forgetful. Sort of as you pointed out they also didn't want to drag out the HH series beyond Siege of Terra as they would get more grief from 'you're doing this to take my money' posse.
Then why are they even having that subplot in the books if its not going to be addressed?

Corax actually succeeded in rebuilding his legion, but the side effects of the methods he used were rather devastating.

Using the normal methods for producing marines would not have yielded enough warriors in the time the loyalists had before Horus and his allies reached Terra. So Corax looked for a faster way, and found cloning. That would help him, and then would lead to the damaging of the Raven Guard geneseed.

Ferrus Manus I think they should write a book about Petrubo's fall (so the destruction of Olympia) and definitely a book about the remains of the Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard after Istavann 5
