    You’re the first person who really brought the White Scars to life in Brotherhood of the Storm, really enjoyed reading it! Looking forward to more White Scars stories written by yourself 🙂

        Also, since I can’t comment on the 40K section, I’ve just finished Blood of Asaheim. Excellent read, thoroughly enjoyed it. I like how each character is round, not the typical Space Marine who’s just guns and brawn. Being amplified to posthuman status means that their flaws have been amplified as well and each member of Jarnhamar is different from the other. Also I like the contrast between the Sororitas and the Astartes. The Nurgle scenes were very vivid in their description as well.

        Listened to Sigillite as well, when I realised the nature of the stone before Malcador says what it is and the identity of that dangerous book my grin went from ear to ear. Adds to why he values the Conservatory’s work in Prospero Burns as well. Malcador is probably one of my favourite characters in the Heresy so a little more light shed on the man without disturbing the patina of mystery is always welcome 🙂

        As I said before looking forward to more of your work 🙂

    Almost to all Primarchs is novel. Are you planning to write a novel about the Leman Russ?

      Hi Andy. Leman Russ and the Space Wolves do have their own novel in Prospero Burns, but he also features in my upcoming book Scars and Graham McNeill’s Vengeful Spirit. Hope that helps!

    I have read and Burn Scars Prospero (by the way, I loved it), but some of the legions, for example such as the Emperor’s Children are devoted to the novel and the short story..

    Hi Chris I’m currently reading Scars & crafting a life size White Scars costume.
    I wanted to utilise your knowledge on the colour of the Scars Armour, is it Bone White or Pure White? Appreciate it should you find a spare mo for a reply. Keep up the good fight!

      Wow – sounds like a great project. Pics anywhere?

      I don’t think I really gave much thought to the exact shade of white, tbh. I think it’s described in the book as ‘ivory’ quite a lot, though I’m sure there are other words used. Is there much difference between bone-white and pure white? I’d go with whatever you feel looks right, especially as HH White Scar armour is different to 40K armour – more gilded, brighter and ‘cleaner’, with fewer tribal markings, purity seals, etc. (for the reasons for this, see the sequel ;p)

    Hi Chris

    Currently only on Facebook & on the Obscurus Crusade forums. (I was planning on @ Iron Warriors build initially but loved the Scars ethos more.. Your book helped no end fleshing them out so kudos for that. I’m also a keen biker, so that’s another tick in the box…
    If you have an email address I’ll happily send you update pics.

    I thought the yellowed Bone/Ivory approach would be more in keeping with their tribal roots over glossy White ceramite.

    Hi Chris,

    I just have to reach out to you. I’ve just now finished Scars, and I am so thrilled as a long-time fan of 40k and Heresy fiction to say that you are a fantastic writer and a truly appreciated addition to the Black Library elite. You handled the mysterious V Legion with subtlety and grace, as befits the Khan and his warriors. The White Scars were not portrayed as parodic effigies of their conceptual influence, but as dynamic and admirable outsiders. I look forward to reading Brotherhood Of The Storm to see how you introduced characters who were developed so well in the following novel. I couldn’t help but feeling at the novel’s end that there was so much awaiting the Scars in the future of the Heresy timeline; better yet, so much that isn’t the black-and-white of Chaos vs. the Imperium. You shed brilliant light on the insights and motives of the Death Guard, Thousand Sons, Space Wolves, and even the complex Alpha Legion. Most importantly, you undertook the development of an enigmatic Primarch with great care and your portrayal of Jaghatai inspired all the awe befitting a Primarch.

    Thank you, and please keep the White Scars heading in this direction in future pieces. They are not like any other legion, and they should forever stay unique.

      Hi! Thanks very much for this comment – that’s very kind to get in touch. I do hope to write more White Scars HH in the future, and looking forward to chronicling their evolution as the Heresy narrative progresses. Glad you enjoyed their first foray 🙂
