I've been looking for information from the BL weekender and i've managed to find some very interesting stuff, all fresh and unknown prior to now.

The Dreadwing have a stockpile of shit that they shouldn't have and every so often they'll use it when forced. This novel sounds awesome!

Templar is before Dorn and Sigismund falling out. An example of an audio filling in a gap, in this case a specific moment in Crimson Fist.

Graham is confident that anyone who wants more Red Angel will like Vengeful Spirit.

Graham would like to do more Sons of Horus from Vengeful Spirit but he doesn't see it happening

John's Ahriman novels are more about the journey toward the Ahriman of the 41st Millennium.

So quite a few cool things. I am absolutely dying to read Talon of Horus, and I already like Iskander Khayon a LOT.

Also really looking forward to Talon of Horrus, going to be epic.

Not quite sure what 'Graham would like to do more Sons of Horus from Vengeful Spirit but he doesn't see it happening' means exactly. Do they mean he wants to do more Sons of Horus novels after VS, or that there aren't going to be a lot of Sons of Horus within the novel. It must be the former, as the latter would be a bit strange.

... fucking shoot me now... I've suddenly lost all desire to finish of my Sanguinor conversion now. That "question" is like Cypher! It doesn't need an answer!

Abnett better be writing that! Nobody else please! Milo is such an integral part of GG, nobody else should handle him.

Come on! HH has many writers, give one of them that stuff and let Abnett get on with Interceptor City. I will fly to the UK and personally beg him if that's what it takes! (Only half joking about that by the way)

Spooky, reminds me of the first words of Horus Rising. I've just started reading Soul Hunter (sorry been a little behind the eight ball on that) and if ADB does even a fraction as well at Horus as he has with the NL (best traitor legion btw) then I've suddenly become interested in Abaddon (first time that's ever happened I can assure you).

Abnett and Nik Vincent are writing it together.

ADB says that Abaddon is the most misrepresented character in 40k, all that Failbaddon crap. And I agree with him. That is the best thing about the 6th edition imo, it has started to make Abaddon a name to fear rather than mock. Plus not only Abaddon but the series will also deal with his Ezekarion, which I imagine are his chief lieutenants and his own Command Squad.

Iskander Khayon - Thousand Sons Sorcerer Lord. Apparantely tried to stop the Rubric of Ahriman.
Telemachron Lyras - Emperor's Children, Swordmaster of the Black Legion
The Fallen Angel - Unknown, apparantely uses a power sword and a shield with grappling claws built in. Either a Blood Angel or a Fallen Dark Angel, I'm hoping for the latter.

And I think there are two more, but I can't rememeber what/who they are. But based on what we know, and ADB's incredibly badass article on Abaddon, http://aarondembskibowden.wordpress....about-abaddon/, I think that this series will be one of the most popular Black Library ever does.

Happy dance time, I really enjoyed Gileads Blood which they wrote together.

I've never really mocked Abaddon as character he has just never grabbed me as an interesting one (as an aside I save my mocking of iconic 40k Characters for Marnus "I'm scared of the Minotaurs" Calgar). The thing is I think (in my mind anyway) Abaddon fills a role in the 40k verse, he is the Arch Enemy, the big baddy in the night, he is pivotal to the relationship between the Chaos Space Marines, Chaos in general and the Imperium. Structurally he can't be too effective otherwise that balance shifts.

In fluff though I still don't think he is a failure, he has managed more than once to unite the Chaos Legions, Gods and the Lost and the Damned to spill out of the Eye of Terror and take the fight to the Imperium and he's nearly won several times (each time he has in some respects won anyway). However put it on the flipside, how many successful Imperial Crusades have been into the Eye and done as much or more damage... none... Yeah Abaddon... not such a fucking idiot as most people make out( and that's not even getting into the whole "I'm the most powerful "mortal" in league with Chaos and I'm not a DP by choice thing). That said I really don't envy ADB's job writing Abaddon!

I wish AD-B was up for writing the HH Dark Angels novel. His portrayal of the Lion and the Legion in Savage Weapons was by far the best they've received, and it would be interesting to see how he'd tackle an Imperial Legion in the series.

I'm still very dubious about Mcneill's Vengeful Spirit given his recent track record.

The cover for Vengeful Spirit. Even in low detail and done with a phone camera, it's clear that Neil Roberts has outdone himself yet again.

I think even if I drift away from BL I'll still pick up the Black Legion series.

No doubt it'll contain the typical level of wit, empathetic characters and grimy gothic space opera associated with the IP that the First Claw trilogy had.

You forgot to mention that where probably would be a digital reprint of the Sabbat worlds crusade background book - with new stuff up to date till the last book 'war master'. Dan told that. And the map of crusade would be reprinted too :) and that is awesome :) NExt graphical novel from Neil Roberts and Dan Abnett is now definitely has a green light :)
Also the vengeful spirit novel could be quite good, or sucks a big time, because I just can't imagine, that some feuodal-technocrat system could be a challenge to the whole Sons of Horus fleet.
And the last novel in this GGhosts arc would be called Anarch - what means that he would probably kill The Lord whose name I'm using for the forums. Here I sign with regret :)

I was in this panel and the process work from thumbnail to final rendering was very interesting - Roberts nailed the composition which is difficult given the typesetting on the book covers. Looks amazing up close too.
