Has anyone else read the book Ghostmake by Ben Abnett.
I love it with the awesome sharpshooter 'Mad' Larkin, the always amazing Gaunt and the backstabbing Rawne.
Does anyone else love this book, i haven't completed it so don't say anything past page 230 lol.
And who else thinks that Caffrans story was rather weak?
Sorry if this topic doesn't quite belong here but oh well.

ive read like the whole series its really good. ide suggest it to anyone, im currently making a Tanith first and Only IG army
I've read quite a few of the tanith novels and i think that they are all great. Tis interesting that you think that caffrans story was weak. Caffran is my favorite character. To me he represents the perfect guardsmen. To add to that he is only a trooper. For a trooper to accomplish what he did (even if it was inadvertant) is no small feat.
I've read all but one, Straight Silver, as I have yet to find it.
As for the story line, it is awesome. I posted on here asking if anyone has an actual First and Only Regiment army for play, but no one seemed to have one.
As for Caffran's story, you have yet to really get into the meat of everything. Keep reading .

Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."

You should move this post to the LO Book club in Clubs and Clans, That would have alot more people respond to it.

IĀ“ve been an IG fan since I first saw WH40K back in the days of the 2nd edition, but everyone kept badmouthing them all the time. I felt enormously vindicated when the GauntĀ“s Ghosts novels and the 3rd ed. IG codex came out, now they were finally cool!
First and only is pretty damn good, and IĀ“ve got to re-read it soon. IĀ“ve read them all and just finished "Traitor General" in hardcover. ItĀ“s a great read, Gaunt and the elite survivors of the regiment(one thing Dan Abnett isnĀ“t afraid of is killing off popular characters) are sent on a desperate suicide mission to a Chaos-held world, and it features the return of a character most probably thought long gone!
I recommend you get your hands on the two omnibus editions of the GauntĀ“s Ghosts novels, they collect the two first story archs, Traitor General is the start of the third one.
My favourite is Necropolis. ItĀ“s just all-out war from start to finish, the Tanith forced to defend a hive city from a rampaging Chaos horde along with a handful of other regiments including their arch-rivals, the Volpone blue-bloods, a snobbish, aristocratic regiment.
Another book IĀ“d recommend is "Execution Hour" by Gordon Rennie. ItĀ“s mostly a naval story, taking place during the 13th Black Crusade of Battlefleet Gothic fame, but it features some nail-biting close quarters fight scenes as well, and a great bunch of characters. Check it out!
