    Yes, it is! And yet, they're one of the most neglected First Founding Chapters, nobody ever drew Vulcan! :-(

    I find the whole "table top gaming" thing appallingly geeky. I can't see the how the hell anyone would want to do it, I have a mate who spends hours painting space marines - he is in his 40's. I keep telling him that he needs to get a life. (He used to do aikido).

    That same mate lent me the first three Horus Heresy novels about 6 months ago.

    I've got rather hooked and have bought and read the lot. They are a bit like the literary equivalent of a Big Mac. Trashy but quite fun. Dan Abnett is certainly a cut above. Some of the books are beter than others but all worth a read.

    I don't like the Ultramarines very much - smug little bastards.

    I find Abnett is pretty much the only 40k author I can read. I don't play the tabletop game (I do play Warmachine and Dystopian Wars on occasion) but I've had great fun playing the 40k RPGs.

    I strongly recommend giving the Graphic Audio versions of the 40k novels a try, they're very good, very stirring.

    Thanks - I might give them a go. As I've read all the Horus books I've run out of junk to read. I was thinking about some of the books set on the 41st Century.

    I'm off to see my mate again this weekend for a boozy session so I might cadge some of his other 40k books off him.

    If I wanted to check out one of Abnett's 40k books, any advice on where to start?

    I suppose WEKAF sparring is sort of like fighting a space marine.

    I friend of mine told me about the war hammer books ages ago I thought they sounded good something about the space marines being 8ft tall with machine guns with chain saws attached to them. Anyway I'm a total war hammer noob what book would you recommend to start with? I want the one that explains the background story so it doesn't end up a muddle of names and places in my head.

    Eisenhorn all over mate, it's one of the best 40k books going.
