Dunno if it's been brought up, but a nice little easter egg dropped...

 

In the very centre, where the immense bosses swelled out, were two greater figures – the Holy Primarch Jaghatai Khan, and a nameless daemonic monster wielding a scythe.

What does this refer to? Is it a scene in Carrion Throne speaking of statues/paintings of these two?

It's depicted on the Lion Gate, actually.

 

Post martem ... probably one of the best 40k books to come out in the last few years, if not longer. If there are direct followups, a la Eisenhorn/Ravenor, Wraight could have just begun one of the few defining works of BL fiction.

I loved the moment Crowl is confused by the 20 primarchs. He only knows the loyalists. Which remimds me of ADB's argument that even inquisitors know nothing without years of research of anything beyond the myth. Those snippets of Colchis in Talon of Horus the Terrain inquistors know.

Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...

And as we could guess - Khan will have round 2 (3) at the Lion spaceport counterattack against Morty.

As they definitely deserve - we all know that in old fluff - Khan counterattacked and take Lion Space Port again stopping Horus reinforcements. Horus own and Death Guard was sent to reconquer the space port. So in all the probability Morty will lead them.

And they will have the great duel with Khan as we expected. This time with words of Khan in 'Scars' staring back into him from the corpulent form of Grandpa Nurgle slave.

Oh man,

 

that cover is so sweet!

 

They're doing everything for us to fell in love with the Custodes. I was NEVER interested in them. Now, with FWs & GWs releases and one of my favorite authors writing about them, I can't ignore them anylonger.

 

Need Carrion Throne being released here asap! :o
