So; salamanders by Kyme, space marine battles woth 30k window dressing by ananndale, disjointed poorly writted iron hands by french, raven guard by thorpe, dark angels by thorpe, more OTT comic book Thousand Sons by Mcneil, the potential for Swallow to write more blood angel, audio exclusive shit, and cancelled master of mankind.

What a pile of horseshit.

Guy haleys night lords, chris wraight, rob sanders and mechanicum, more white scars. Nice.

End times 3 and 4. Sweet.

Ben counter? Smd. Graham mcneil ultras. Gtf out. More 1st ed bollocks. Fuck right off. Malus darkblade - deathblade. Does this bellend really pull widowmaker? Fuck this shit.

Wait, MoM got cancelled? Say it ain't so!
This is the exact line;

Death Nikorps said:
- Aaron Dembski-Bowden paused on the HH, he did not want to write it at the moment and therefore abandons his Master of Mankind in favor of The Black Legion (second volume of his series 40k).
So we aren't getting a novel about the Emperor anymore, but it means we are getting a novel about Abaddon and the Black Legion much sooner.

Really unsure how to feel about that.

Master of Mankind is just delayed, not cancelled. ADB just doesn't want to write about HH right now.

The Herald of Sanguinius by Andy Smillie (Blood Angels/Imperium Secundus) (Audio) (Christmas 2015/2016??)
Christmas 2014/15 if I'm right.

The MoM delay in favour of the next BL book is a huge letdown.
At least new End Times books are coming. The series is excellent so far.

I'd rather the man take the better half of a century with MoM then for him to rush it.

Depicting the Emperor in the manner he deserves will be a massive effort.

Reading Talon of Horus right now. Good stuff. Looking forward to Master of Mankind and Nightfall (of all things)

Let me be frank. I don't like Curze and I don't like the Night Lords. I don't dislike them, but nothing about the legion particularly appeals to me. The Blood Angels are one of my favourite legions...and yet, I would rather read a NL novel trilogy by ADB than suffer through a single BA short story by James Swallow. Such is ADB's writing skill compared the bulk of BL authours. RANT OVER

Oh, hey, it's Sharrowkyn - I'm so glad he is making a reappearance. You really can't have too much of an individual who doesn't bring anything to the table in terms of development or depth, but simply happens to be the best at combat and stealth.
You are right, but I do favour this stereotype with no development over the stupid and boring loyalist characters many authors tend to throw out, like Thorpe and Swallow.
1. More Lion El'Jonson* by Abnett? Yes please.

2. Alpha Legion versus Shattered Legions? It could be interesting, but it's tough for me to imagine a scenario wherein a Coalition of Legionaries Who Don't Like Each OtherTM are able to compete with a cohesive legion whose calling card is teamwork. But wait, what am I thinking? SHARROWKYN.

3. Angels of Caliban... All I can say is that Gav Thorpe hit most of the right notes with Master of Sanctity, but the audio dramas he's done for the Caliban plot thus far have not impressed me.

4. I'd much rather read The Crimson King instead of Battle for Macragge.
I agree on what you wrote here.
5. Based on what little information I've seen (a prequel to Battle of the Fang, which purports to explain why the Space Wolves were so read to go after Magnus) Hunt for Magnus is not going to be my cup of tea. I like Wraight's work, but I'd much rather see him tackle something other than Space Wolves.
I think it actually would be interesting to read about, but thats just me,
6. I'm not that jazzed about Sanguinor.

7. As you may have guessed already, I'm not that jazzed about titles that include terms/titles/names like "DEATHSTORM".
Couldn't agree more.

Ah, well then if it comes down to what i'd rather read first; a novel about the birth of the Black Legion and the New Warmaster vs The First Templar, or a novel about the Emperor and the War in the Webway... come on, it's me. The answer's obvious. :grin:

How is a stereotypical character with no development not stupid and boring? Also, it's not as if the two concepts have to be mutually exclusive. You're presenting false choice, man.

Oh sorry yes, when presenting it like that they aren't opposites. You are indeed right.
