The limited edition crazy train has really been pushing it as of late, now has it not?

New Alpha Legion? Good.

More Shattered Legion? Bad.

£30? Bad.

McNeill? Bad (or at least risky).

I'm worn out from novellas.

Maybe if it was full length it wouldn't have to focus on the Shattered Legions so much :angel:

When it's called a 'novella' just how many pages are we talking? I want this book for the AL, am sick of the RG, S and IH but all in all I'd possibly pay for 200+ pages. Even an eye watering £30.

The shattered legions... these days I wish they'd just been slaughtered to a man at Istvaan so we didn't have to constantly hear about them. The amount of attention they get you'd be forgiven for assuming they're the most important of the first founding legions, when in reality they are probably bottom three.

We should start a fundraiser and send you $1 to buy and review it.
Firstly, that doesn't make sense - $1 wouldn't be much use to me. Secondly, stop sarcastically pouncing on everything I say recently would ya? Thanks. :)

Black library is business after all and wants to milk it for what's it worth but I think these expensive novel is not the way to go. I mean when will we see the end of the Horus heresy already??

There are so many other stories they can tell about the warhammer 40k universe. They can even go back to the dark age or even gasp...go forward to 40k . It's kind of like what's coming out of black library lately is just not that great.

Imagine McNeil wrote a classic of English literature, worthy of study for hundreds of years and amongst many people's favourite books of all time- but since it was a BL limited edition it just sort of disappeared after a while because, despite the universal five star and ten out of ten reviews, nobody could get hold of it?

What then? What a shame that would be

Around 120 pages
Thanks.

Not worth 30 quid :angry:

No way in hell i would be buying this novel. It already has three things wrong:

- Graham
- Limited edition
- Shattered legions

This series is now beyond parody.

I am now actively considering selling the LE books I have to pay for the FW books.

It's ironic for me, as at book twenty something we are FINALLY getting to see the DG. But I've had it with these LE releases and other funky mkney-spinning schemes.

Get yer arse tae Terra!
