But when the Junk-Daemons appear it's impossible to deny a supernatural origin to them, they can't be called xenos because it's blatantly obvious that no xeno could do what they did, only something that isn't mortal could turn a city into a monster and create an army of nightmares out of everyday objects. It was a bucket of cold water to the Blood Angels collective face, showing them without any room to question that Signus was under attack by something they had been told did not exist, Daemons.

Completely agree. Corruption and by extent possession goes beyond just flesh (in my mind anyway). A lot has been said about this part of the FTT. Personally I didn't have a problem with it, as it showed something different, something a author hasn't shown beyond 'flesh' possession. Bravo on that.

I finished Fear To Tread recently, and the later parts of the book were rife with lesser daemons of Slaanesh and Khorne, Furies and, I believe, one or two less identifiable critters. Which is fine, even Abnett used a daemonette or two (really effectively with his human characters, might I add) in Know No Fear.

Junk-daemons were better suited for that stage of the campaign for so many reasons. Malus just loves him some slaughtering BL authors.

Ok i've read this novel now, my review for it is up in the new BL Reviews Section, and i'd like to set the record straight on that Lexicanum article because it's quite inaccurate.



Just wanted to set the record straight.

Please remember that LotN's favourite Heresy novel is...Fear to Tread. He has very different taste compared to you or I.

It's not a lore inconsistency, just a childish idea and ultimately bad writing. Why stop with traffic signs? Why not have poodles possessed by Daemons? It doesn't break the lore, you're right.
LOL I hope James Swallow doesn't read these forums

Fyi, my favourite HH novel is currently Betrayer. Fear to Tread comes in at 2nd place and Know No Fear at 3rd.

I do hope that wasn't a shot at me.

Oh yeah it's got to be author convenience that a battlefield is full of dead bodies, cos you know in 40k that almost never happens.

No, it's convenient that the battles always take place on battlefields littered with bodies

Actually if you'd read all of my spoilers you'd know that wasn't the case.
