If you don't like Jack asses, don't read Nagash. Or Heldenhammer. They're both twats.

of course, all the major players have a slight streak of arragonce in them-otherwise sigma would have said "bloody hell, look at those orcs! i say let the dwarfs sort themsleves out, lets go home and have a cup of tea."[mildly exaterated]

humm, true. This is yet again proof the Orks are smarter the Elves.-Micklez

Don't get me wrong; I like having douchers like Malekith around, if only to curb-stomp them after playing a gut-wrenching guitar solo while also making sweet love to their mothers/daughters/any female relation. But credit where credit's due, Mal is a total piece of shit.

That having been said, IMHO the book about him is very, very good! I think I'm going to read Heldenhammer next. What's this about him being a twat?

I'm reading Heldenhammer now, and I can't put it down, 150 pgs the first night! I avoided Malekith because Gav Thorpe wrote it... and I never have been a fan of his stuff, only because of what he looked like in white dwarf. Stupid idea, but if Malekith is good, I'll have to pick it up, soon after I read nagash. Sigmar isn't a twat in this book one bit. He's got dreams and aspirations, less than a dick like Horus or the Emperor!

Heldenhammer isn't a twat, he's awesome. Nagash is an evil twat but the book was very good.

ok 3 things you need to remember before calling Malekith a douche.

1. hes an elf, and because of that you have to compare his doucheness to other elves doucheness.

2. hes the commander of an army, what commander of an army doesnt use tatics like he does unless they are oh so sad about losing any lives. hell, how many times while playing the tabletop do you sacrifice one squad so 3 others may get the jump on a particularly annoying group in your enemies army? its called tatics

3. the guy was, as stated before, told from his birth that he would be the next king, that combined with elven arrogence, makes him very very VERY arrogent, and probably very very pissed off when he was upsurped.

Dont like them you say? * sharpens blade * ill have to ask the Temple of Khaine to remove you then

No seriously, without them then High Elves would be missing something like 80-90% of their fluff and hell there arnt any other evil evil ( aka very evil ) armies out their. i mean daemons are few and far between and i always considered the rest of chaos forces as... orcs ( stupid, not knowing any better than to attack anything that moves)

for Malekith, hes the backbone of the Druchii, but jeez, pull the sword of Khaine out of its block and exterminate the asur! how many petty invasions does it take to destroy well.. a bunch of spear weilding, flower power believing hippies.

This is exactly what I did. Tyrion is a douche, but nowhere near Malekith on Kruswald's Doucheness Scale; Teclis is a douche too, but only in the same way that James Bond as played by Daniel Craig is a douche: by being totally awesome.

Never. I would never throw my Marines' "lives" away; annoying enemy squads are what I have Plasma Cannons for :p

Obviously temperance wasn't too high on Malekith's list of things he might need when he's leading a bunch of people...might be kind of useful, is all I'm saying

Having read half of Malekith so far, I think I'd end up the way he did. Bel Shanaar is a total shit - his arrogance is staggering. It's been a good read so far and Malekith shows a lot of humility in amongst his ruthless streak. I'll give you my final opinion once I've read it all!

I've read 303 pgs and I kinda feel bad for him. He just kinda gets screwed out of all his credit for things. The way he turned out is understandable, He was told from birth he was the best things since sliced bread and he would be king. Then the elves were like nope you don't get Crap. We decided you are to much of a warrior to be king.

I've read Heldenhammer and liked it. Nagash annoyed me (both the book and the character) the jumping around got to me after awhile. The living Kings are cool though.
