Kieran I suspect that you missed the point of Descent of Angels. It was not meant to be another power armoured, boltgun blasting technofest. It was meant to explore the pre-history of the Dark Angels in a new way. We've all read the current and previous DA codicies and know the story of Luther's betrayal and the destruction of Caliban but now we have fleshed out characters to inhabit that old story. Luther is now...more human and a fascinating character study along with all of the major players in the book. The whole DA chapter has taken on a new perspective in my eyes...and yes I'm eyeing up the DA minis and thinking about army lists, time for an intervention methinks, are there rehab facilities for mini addicted gamers?
***Spoiler Alert*** ***Avert your eyes and go read Fulgrim, what's taking so damn long anyway?!***
Allerka, as for the Ferrus vs. Fulgrim showdown, I thought it was pretty cool, however, the Iron Hand history has always spoken of Ferrus going missing in that fateful confrontaion and the Iron Hands awaiting his return...not with his head on Horus's desk as a paperweight. They took all the mystery out of it, he ain't coming back and nor is he ever going to need to buy a hat again, trust me on this. I'm currently re-reading Jonathan Green's book 'Iron Hands' and they always harp on about his return but 'Fulgrim' puts paid to that theory.
Personally I think that the HH
series of books is the best thing to have happened to the 40k universe for a long long time. Some of them are better than others (anyone else wish that Dan Abnett would have written them all?) but overall, inspiring stuff.
