Think the cover is somewhat ruined by having Corax holding onto a combi-melta.

Also just noticed they've gone back to a limited amount of copies. Only 4000 available, as opposed to being available for a week like the recent ones have all been, including Soulforge if I'm not mistaken, which is an odd decision.

I like the cover. Corax is willing to pick up a standard gun and get to work along with his sons, most Primarchs would be toting some kind of advanced, ornate, one-of-a-kind weapon. Corax has the same gun as his men. Fitting for him as a Primarch who is closer to humanity than most.

He isn't on some PR mission though. He's there to kill traitors/daemons/etc.

No one would or should care about his humility in that situation.

Never said he was. But the blurb says they are invading a prison colony, so maybe there are lots of tight spaces where a Primarch getting into melee would make it difficult for anybody to fire a gun at the enemy. So Corax stays at range with the rest of his men, and sticks with a simple meltagun for expediency.
