I liked this, nice to go into battle with the relatable Imperial Guard rather than the grunting alpha male Space Marines for a change. Gaunt doesn’t seem very Commissar-y though, not nearly mental as I remember them being from back in the day.
This blog is two! It’s slightly sad I have a reminder in my calendar for this. 65 books read in the last year by my count. Looking back, perhaps less sci fi next year.
Interesting angle on the World Eaters before they go completely bananas, but I don’t buy Lorgar’s seemingly near limitless power. The World Eater fleet captain was probably the best character in it.
An aside - I might have missed it but it’s implied Angron’s homeworld is part of the ‘500 Worlds of Ultramar’ - with a slave caste and gladiator pits? Yeah right.
