Two fights that he doesn't "win", it would be nice if these were the 2 most beautiful set pieces in the entire heresy but alas, I'd just like sigis to go full templar and murderfest his way through traitors and see off a named officers that clearly aren't in 40k. Or stab Skraivok in the face. I'll take that one.

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Well, when Sigismund finished with Khârn he was left for dead.
So he will actually die and get resurrected later by Khorne, or he will be put in the comatose state we find him in when Eater of Worlds begins.
There are a million reasons why, in the confusion of the greatest battle in human history, you may just need to move on instead of stopping to check if that unconscious guy you just eviscerated with your sword is actually 100% dead.

Who knows. We will see.
What I have no doubt about is that Siggy's fans will be pleased.
This is his peak. His apogee.
He will be awesome and will beat lots and lots of traitors... Khârn included.

Sigismund is going to go round slaughtering chaos champions and he will totally lose it when the gods resurrect them all

Does this mean that Gav thorpe is book 2 of the series? Is it good having Khârn and sigismund fighting on book 2 already?

Does it really matter? If the scene is written well, and that's a big if considering it's Thorpe, I find it pointless as Khârn will survive anyway. Rather have Sigismund just running around smacking no name champions, at least that's tactile in a way.

Book 3 I think. French, Haley and Thorpe are doing the first 3 books, and I think Haley has the second one.

Thorpe says he only just finished an unapproved, unedited draft, I suspect Haley's book has been finished for a while.

 

Still it is not impossible that his is the second, I just don't think so.

It is Gav Thorpe. Of course the prose is dry and flat. He has been butchering the Raven Guard in the Horus Heresy for years, the Dark Angels in both 30K and 40k for longer than that...and how he will be diminishing the Siege...

Oh, this makes the scene/battle feel quite small. If Sigismund is within visual range of Abaddon while being charged by the World Eaters, and can also look over to some Iron Warriors; it kinda seems like a small parking-lot skirmish, not a siege battle the size of the Asian continent...

Atleast to me, it does, but luckily its only a few lines in an 8 book series.

Let's not forget how Khârn somehow flips over the 7-8 foot shield wall of the Fists. Thorpe obviously playing DoW 3 as inspiration.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.
