Re: Warhammer 40k fluff thread VI: They see me Ward'en, they haten
So on advice from this thread a few pages back, I have skipped over Fulgrim and instead read Descent of Angels.
It was pretty bloody awesome. It did have very little to do with the horus heresy itself, spent almost all of its time setting things up for heresy, but I quite thouroughly enjoy it as no other book at this point had gone into that deep of an investigation into how pre-imperial-contact worlds were, and did an awesome job showcasing the societal impacts of compliance, the Astartes, and the arrival of the Emperor.
I had fun with it.
Claspedchurches: This is a mudstone dwarven fortress. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It is encrusted with bauxite, studded with ice, decorated with gold, and adorned with hanging rings of magma. This fortress menaces with spikes of steel, iron, bronze, and silver. On the fortress is an image of an image of cheese in pitchblende.
On the fortress is an image of a megaweapon in gold, silver, jet, obsidian and adamantine. The goblins are burning.
