when we've done that, lets go through a fucking warpstorm that is able to block out the light of astronomicon and has some as yet unknown link with those cults of word bearers and their mortal followers with ramshackle ships.

And then when we get to our locations because of plot armour, lets throw a fucking primarch into an eternally erupting supervolcano

Oh. Nick Kyme.

So do I. His Heresy Salamanders are in one of the most interesting positions of any of the Loyalist Legions, and Kyme has done a very good job of exploring that.

I'm with Vaz. I'll wait out but the plot just sounds ludicrous.

Also I would say Kymes Salamanders are the worst portrayed legion thus far, along with the Blood Angels, courtesy of Swallow the prick.

Ordered. Along with Blades of the Traitor, to save on shipping. How was that btw?

I am actually pretty excited for Deathfire now.

Fully agree with Vaz and Angel...Kyme might be a swell bloke and all that, but he is a terrible writer, just as bland and unimpressive as Swallow

Gollum: Yes.. Yes

Smegal: No! No! Its to risky! Its too risky!!!


Yeah I think I'm going to wait. I have said it before. I think its a bad sign to have one author completely represent one legion throughout the series.

Think you folks are badly overreacting. Ive just finished Deathfire and I found it a rather enjoyable read. Infact I would rate it a good bit higher than Kyme's most recent book, Rebirth which I found to be fairly bland and uninspired.

Deathfire introduces some rather vile word bearers and showing just what the legion is devolving into. And what the sallies encounter inside the Ruinstorm is not your typical daemons, giving a really nice horror vibe as the daemons toy with their victims instead of the usual killmaim type daemons in more bolterporn books.

A couple teasers. The Death Guard, pre Nurgle, features heavilly. and we get a good look at Imperium Secundus.

If I have to give a single niggle to the book. I felt..
