Ive just recently started reading the horus heresy novels, and might i say an awesome series so far. Ive just finished reading the flight of the eisenstein, and was checking which ones to get next to follow in order, and noticed there are release dates flowing into next year. i was wondering has the story come to a head yet? or will it be one of those series that will forever back track on itself to add depth but never reach a conclusion. so far i am really impressed, so much so that im recommending it to folks that dont play the game. it would be such a dissapointment for it to never reach the explosive ending i can only begin to imagine.
if anyone has any ideas could you let me know cheers. Dave <O> <O>
Spoiler: Horus dies.

LMAO, well.... yeah.,
but to answer you i dont think they plan to end it for a long time yet, they could even extend to the couple of hundred years after the heresy as a lot happend then too.

Its a great series, im currently reading Fallen Angels which I think is the 11th book. I do hope things swing back around though and continue the story of the first three books.
i think you can safely expect GW/BL to draaaaaaag this series out for a while before returning to the story in the first three books.
My main comment would be that the story goes IMHO REALLY downhill after the first 3 books (it reaches its pit in the Dark Angels books & Legion) only to come back on form with 'A Thousand Sons'. One of the later books in the series (Battle for the Abyss) is basically the Flight of the Eisenstein with different characters.
I understand what people mean when they say the standard dropped after the first three. I do think thats because the standard of the first three was so good though, kinda hard to follow?
I think Fulgrim was very good, on a par with the Horus Trilogy, if not better.
Also, whilst i thought books like Decent of Angels and Legion were not quite as epic i do appreciate the perspectives offered.
Well I have enjoyed all the books and have finished the newest one, Nemesis. Although Decent of Angels was probably the worst Black Library book i have ever read, and I have read a lot of them. Fulgrim, Legion and Thousand Sons are probably the best after the first 3 IMO. Nemesis kinda gets back to Horus as he has a few lines in it, but the next 2 books deviate away again.
If you look at the newer books in the series they say "over a million in print" and its their best selling series with all their best authors. So to answer your question, no they will milk this cash cow for all its worth. Which I don't mind because they are all entertaining. (then again I'm not the critical)
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
A moment of weakness spawns a life tme of heresy...
Well I reckon it'll end at the breaking down of the Space Marine legions... but at the Black Library event last year they said it was originally planned for a dozen books but they kept coming up with ideas for side-plots and there's a lot of stuff to cover so I expect we'll be looking at 30 books at least.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
