    Completely flew past my radar.

    Don't know how you could recreate the magic of the early 2000 films.

    There's a new Charlie's Angels? I haven't even heard of a trailer.
  4. In Topic: Warhammer Books

    25 November 2021 - 10:27 AM

    I finished the first book in the Horus Heresy, Horus Rising. Making my way into book two: False Gods.

    I did not like this first book much from a stand alone point of view or as an entry to a series. The structure is clunky and most things just sort of happen, with little over all build up. You could argue that this is because the book centers on the character of Logen, first, and the universe second. If I was a first time reader of Warhammer and didn't know anything about the universe I doubt I would read any more. But I guess the point is that most of the prospective readers will know of the tale of Horus and the Heresy and as such, it's table dressing and fan service for those who are already invested.

    There's surprisingly little action in the book for a space marine book but I do enjoy seeing the space marines through the eyes of the supporting cast of historians and artists.

    Also very curious how "innocent" they all seem. Mostly ignorant of chaos and magic or "The Warp" and "Warp entities" as they call them. I thought the birth of Slaanesh and the Eye of Terror happened before the Horus Heresy but there's not much chaos to be found anywhere. Or if there is, the Primarchs keep it secret even from their Astartes commanders. I think that might change in book 2 but we'll see. In general I'd thought there was plenty of chaos activity before the empire fell into darkness but now I assume it actually happens during the Heresy?

    Love the beginning schism between religious fanatics and those solely driven by the logic of the emperors commandment. It all seems so inevitable. And now in book two it's revealed that:


    Not sure about Horus. I love how "angelic" he seems most of the time, practically radiant, a power house of a super human but there's also a kind of innocent ignorance to his character that I don't like. I always feel like authors walk a fine line when they want to impress upon the reader how superhumanly capable and intelligent a character is, because when they then try to sell a storyline about them not seeing or understanding something that seems obvious from the readers perspective, it becomes frustrating, rather than thrilling.

    I think you need therapy and probably some kind of medical treatment, Mal. How boring is your daily existence that you find it imperative to jump on this forum every few weeks and pick a fight with people?

    Where do you get off telling me to 'tone it down'? Fuck you man, I stood up for you when all of the staff was against you. I gave you the 'Wheelchairs of War' in defiance of censorship. In short, I backed you when you said unpopular thihgs. Do better.
