Ugh. What is it with the British and the allure of those inscrutable orientals?

So far Scars seems like someone read the GBS china thread and used it as the 40k research.

Also, this had me thinking about a Native American inspired chapter. People say the Raven Guard are but lol no.

 

POWER BOW WITH A MASS REACTIVE SHELL ARROW BRO

 

DUAL WIELDING POWER TOMAHAWKS

 

SWORDS ARE GAY

 

FIGHTING STYLE LOOKS LIKE A WARDANCE

 

tfw u will never pick off a green skin with your power bow while hurling your power tomahawk at another while thundering across the open plains on your bike.

I think my favorite running theme is that, regardless of how fucking depraved chaos space marines/primarchs are/can be, they are still portrayed as normal dudes in first person.

 

For instance, in Vengeful Spirit fairly early on, you have Horus, FUCKING 8 ARMED DEMON SNAKE FULGRIM, and Mortarion having a p normal conversation about what they were gonna do next.

 

Like heres Horus having a normal conversation with his bro/SNAKE-ESQUE DEMON PRINCE like there is nothing out of the ordinary. Only Mortarion, of all fucking people, is like "Yo what, what the fuck did you DO bro?".

like its wild how, when you get a book from the perspective of say, the Ultramarines, how fucked up chaos is but then you get a book/passage from the perspective of like, Argel Tal, and youre walking through the bowels of a demon infested ship with blood, and bone, and flesh everywhere and he looks at Kharn and is like "Yeah, the boys may have gotten a tad carried away down here you know?".

I have him where he is for the simple reason that I cannot stand anyone I have ranked below him. Only Fulgrim I feel has any redeeming qualities and those are super few now that he is saturday morning cartoon villain 6 armed snake guy.

 

I mean the Lion is a dickhead with his (secrets) and the whole not being able to catch curze on his own ship and then releasing him onto Macragge and not saying anything thing, but what Fulgrim did to Perty Rambo is totally fucked. Dorn is the pretty much a giant dickhead, the other two arent even spoken of and Russ is fucking Russ.

I hate the Space Wolves. I wont even play them in a video game. 

 

That being said, this looks p cool. Reviews look good too. 

 

At 30 bones though, Im a little leary. If they had a few more legions/third race etc. Ill probably pick it up at some point, but Im going to wait a little to see what their plans are for fleshing it out.

 

This is super sweet though, and I really hope it takes off.

I am sure PETA are serious about it. 

 

But recall that part of PETA's MO is to be obnoxious, to ruffle feathers, to grab headlines, in the service of spreading awareness or whatever.  They want to be a thorn in the side.

Almost done Damnation of Pythos and this book is terrible. The Iron Hands are idiots outdone only by the Salamanders and Raven Guard. Like, I now fully understand how Horus was able to get the drop on these fools.

I know this thread is more or less just a stream of consciousness thing for me but whatever.

 

I think Im done with 30k for awhile after this book is over and going back to 40k stuff. This book is just terrible and the last few havent been great either with the exception of Vengeful Spirit and Unremembered Empire. I feel like the next good one wont be until Pharos so Im just going to take a break.

 

Im only doing audio books right now as I dont have time to sit and read and I have a 2 hour commute each day. I think I have one Cain audio drama and then I may do Salvations Reach again but it irks me that Im missing so many of the Gaunt books up to that point that I may not go that route.

 

The first two Eisenhorn books are on audio now and its been a few years since Ive read those but all 3 of those books were so good that I pretty much have them ingrained in my brain so I may be wasting time there.

 

I need to check whats available I think. I have like 60 gigs of books so idk. Maybe I just take a break from WH all together and do like, Icewind Dale or something.

Give it a month, and read the Gathering Storm series. The third should be next month I believe, and the first one was a solid read, mostly from the point of view that holy fuck the storyline is being advanced. You can skip the rules stuff ofc, but I'd give them a read for that reason alone; the storyline parts aren't hugely long either so it isn't a giant commitment. I haven't finished part two, but part one was a fair read; it does have CREEEED after all.

its an hour both ways roughly. Its not that bad as like 30 minutes of it each way is over water so its kinda pretty.

 

I hate living near I work as I never want to have a chance of running into a coworker when im not at work. that combined with housing costs in Manatee compared to Pinellas and Hillsborough counties made it a no brainer. Sindel and Bagehi also live right up the road so it all works out.

Decided to stick with the heresy at least for another book or two or until I figure out what I want to hear about next. If I were actually reading it with my eyes itd be easy but not everything is available on audio books.

 

Finished Damnation of Pythos and while its somewhat interesting that the good guys lose in absolute fashion at the end, it still doesnt redeem this book. 

 

Not a single interesting character in the ENTIRE book. Combine that with 3 of my least liked legions and man am I glad they are all dead.

 

Its kinda fucked up too because, in theory, the Salamanders, Iron hands and Raven Guard SHOULD be pretty cool. You have your black pyromaniacs, your tech-cyber dudes who have the neat tech and the guys who fly around zonking dudes.

 

In practice they all suck. Salamanders are whiny bitches. Iron hands have the personality of cardboard and Raven Guard are just quiet. Not like, silent brooding edgy quiet, just like, quiet boring quiet.

 

 

Whatever

 

next up we go back a few years with Prince of Crows. The book focuses on Sevatar 1st Captain of the Night Lords and all around pretty badass dude if everything we have heard about him from other legions references are true. Ive been curious about him as a character for awhile now so Im kinda hyped for this book even though Kurze and the Night Lords as a legion at this point make me gag. I can see the Night Lords as maybe being cool once I read more about them but Kurze is kind of a bitch and I cant see myself ever liking him.

 

This is a novella so itll probably be quick. I may just do short stories for awhile until I figure out where to go next.

None of the xenos races interest me with the exception of maybe orks but even then not enough to read about any of their dumb ork bullshit.

 

Tau books would probably be interesting but then again their whole society is kinda fucked up so who knows.

There was one that was written from the pov of a Penal Legion soldier being sent as a "ambassadorial mission" to a Tau world.

 

The only memorable thing about it was the Tau ambassador asking about his home world and literally losing his shit when he described the Hive he came from.

 

It, by which I assume you mean the book, is indeed as terrible as you imagine. Gav Thorpe is not the most compelling author Black Library author.

Sevatar hands down favorite character in this whole thing.

 

I mean there are always characters you come across that you like; Ahriman, Kharn, Argel-Tal, Kroeger, Dantioch etc.

 

But man, Sevatar takes the cake for me at least.

 

On to a bunch o Night Lords stuff. 1st up Throne of Lies which doesnt have any Sevatar but does have Night Lords who are p cool
