More from the Tanith is never a bad thing. More books on the Alpha Legion. Wouldn't mind unification era books, or the crusade in general before the Heresy.

Hmm I would like to see some progress, the odd thing that strikes me is that in every novel I have read, whether it be Space Marines, Imperial Guard or Inquisition they always seem to win but it never makes any difference to the overall war.
The only thing that happens is a planet gets attack by Orcs, Chaos or Tyranids, Eldar etc and the boys from the Empire turn and beat them. Except if the planet is over infested and the Empire have to Viral Bomb it to ash, so the opposing forces without ever winning are making the Empire loose planets permanently till there are none left. The Empire should see through this shallow plan and do the same to enemy planets.
I think because its fiction we may never see any big changes, like a major enemy being permanently beaten from the universe, the writers lack the courage to change any thing that would make the war winnable or loosable in anyway.
Also the Blood Ravens mystery sorted out and the missing Primarchs sorted out and some exposure for the less popular chapters/legions.

I think the Fall of the Eldar would be an exceptional story, especially if it was done similarly to the HH with different authors and spread over a series of books. They could also deal a bit more ithe the Eldar / Dark Eldar split, maybe highlighting the choices and experiences of each group more.

I think a Tyranid book is long overdue, and before people argue it can't be done, there is an excellent series of novels dealing with the Aliens mythology.

The Tau would be another race that could be slightly more involved.

I would also like to see a few books on Slaanesh (maybe in the Eldar series?) and the Emperor's Children (but I'm biased about that). I think Slaanesh, Khorne and Nurgle are all crying out for re-interpretation in the form of a novel, so people stop saying they are merely about, porn, blood, and disease.

Finally, I think Mortarian's backstory is entirely worthy of its own novel, and the book could finish with a few chapters on how the Primarch turned full circle and ended up becoming the thing at the top of the mountain :) on his own daemon world.

Oh and one more thing, games workshop like all entertainment industries in general (films, T.V, literature) need to understand that there is a large and viable market for mature / adult graphic novels and stop all the PG-13esque nonsense. This doesn't mean talking about boobs 'tee hee' or throwing in random curse words, but just catering to the tastes of older audiences. Remember when movies like Die Hard, Predator, Alien were made and the Sven Hassel type books? Sigh

Njah, just the Chaos Space Marines would be nice, and the Emperor should protect the loyalists from it... *crosses fingers* :p

I would like to see more fluff for the Iron Warriors and White Scars. Maybe a story about post-heresy Thousand Sons (maybe not fighting Space Wolves for a change). Or maybe some more fluff about the battles that rage within the Eye of Terror between the traitor legions.

I agree with Chompy Bits. A book detailing the legion vs legion fighting in the Eye of Terror would is long over due. Maybe one talking about Abbadon rustling up the support of the other legions before a Black Crusade

Something more adult orientated would be nice, I doubt they will but I can dream!

As much as I love the HH series it would be nice for them to explore some more history, some of the bigger things that have happened in the Empire's past. Maybe the age of apostasy.

Yes, can't wait till that book comes out. Long over due really. And it seems that at least coming from Graham McNeill the Iron Warriors wont be coming out for a couple years. The world better not end before then.:ireful2:

Progress. One series of books that moves the overall story of 40k forward, even if it's only over 200 years or so in the timeline.

All newer Imperial codexs point towards the imperium consolidating their forces to face larger threats. Therefore a few books told from the enemies of the imperium perpestive would be great.

Books of the Nid invasion, an extended attack on Ultramar/Baal or even a story of Hive Fleet Leviathan getting closer to Terra.

A book to really detail the Nightbringers plans. Maybe a real push by the Necrons to take some territory.

A book detailing a successful expansion by the Tau. Maybe they take a good amount of planets from the Imperium.

Finally with Choas books about the attack on Baal by KaBandha, the resolution of combat on Cadia, an expansion by Huron from the malestorm.

Seeing all that before 6th ed would be sweet.

not because im a big world eaters fan or anything but after reading 'at de'shea' i would love them to flesh out what went off when the emp came to collect angron and more of angron psychoness after all this. basically what he said to the captains once kharn talked him round to not killing anymore of them and what he plannned for the legion in the future. he could have had a pop at the emp on any number of times but didnt but in the end he turned against the emperor. what i want to know in more detail is why and how easy was it for horus to convince him to turn.

A series about The Fall is a brilliant idea.

I'd like a Heresy book purely about the Custodes too.
Still got my fingers crossed we'll get a novel about the 'Secret War' (Custodians and Sisters of Silence versus Hordes of Daemons) that erupted after Magnus disrupted the wards in the Palace.

I doubt that a series of books on the fall would occur since there is no options for speesh murhreens!

Seriously though I think completely about the harlies. Maybe starting from an initiate turning into a solitaire over many centuries could be cool.

Obviously this should happen after the path series. I wonder when path of the seer comes out.

I'd like to see the Heresy fast forward a bit, say maybe a book a month until the series is done. As another post pointed out there are other important events to explore namely the scouring and the foundation of the Imperium.

A book on the fall of the Golden age would be nice as well as one on the unification wars. Although I doubt they will do it a man can dream can't he?
