I got the email and it said it was available on iBooks.

I looked and it's not, very strange.

Fuck that, for a book you'd read in as long as it takes to take a good dump? I think not.

What you're saying is that side A is superior because it has more practice at and a greater talent for superior tactics other legions are unable to counter.

I'm saying what I said. I think it was clear enough. :)

Found extensive spoilers here for those whom thinks its ridiculously overpriced:

Some rather interesting bits.

Right...you clearly said other sides can't counter the AL, then gave some reasons for why that's the case.

I never said they couldn't. I gave an opinion as to why them not doing so doesn't necessarily make the Alpha Legion over the top, unrealistic, etc. I offered that the context and background of the Legiones Astartes (specifically, their culture and mentality) allowed the Alpha Legion to operate in a relative vacuum where their chosen mode of war was concerned. Finally, I pointed out that a conflict of the scale of the Heresy may very well keep the other Legiones Astartes too busy to worry re-establish their protocols and tactics to a level that might thwart the Alpha Legion.

If you read that as "can't", period, then I'm sorry but that wasn't my intent. Not only was that my intent, but it's obviously not the intent of Games Workshop and its various entities (Black Library, Forge World, etc.). An example of that would be the explicitly stated qualifier that the "circles of trust" of the Dark Angels' hierarchy ensured they weren't infiltrated by either the Lodges or the Alpha Legion.

Read the spoilers...

There are quite a lot of plot advancements and details that seem very important to the overall Heresy. I won't get into spoilers, you can check out the details at other sites like B&C.

That actually makes me a little disappointed. I thought they said all the main plot lines would be covered in the core books? Oh well, luckily my interest in the HH has waned a lot in the last year so I'm not too passionate about it. Hopefully in the next few years, this novella becomes part of one of the core anthologies.

Well I've ordered it. This will be the first limited edition I've bought in quite some time. I am cautiously optimistic about it. Now just need to wait for it to arrive.

It's good. Disappointed that it wasn't longer though. Paying alot for a throwaway short story is one thing but it's very disheartening to pay a lot of money for 120 pages that could/should/would have been a full length novel.
