With the fantastic Horus Heresy novel series slowly drawing to its inevitable finale, what characters would you have liked to learn more about? Maybe you feel certain characters should have had more page-time, or maybe certain characters which started as big characters, somehow disappeared into the shadows?
Well share your thoughts below.
For me though, here are some characters I wanted to learn more of:
Holgoarg - Captain of the Death Guard. I don't know much about this chap apart from that he was one of the 7 Death Guard Captains. Considering Garro is no longer an acting member of the XIV, Typhon is a very busy (yet absent) First Captain, Temeter died, Ujioj (Loyalist) presumably died, Grulgor is pestilence personified and the other being possibly Kullar Hal (though he may have been EC judging by his HHCCG image). It just seems that the XIV is in dire need of some Captains. Considering Holgoarg was described by Grulgor himself as a true son of Barbarus, this guy has the makings to be a decent character even if just in the FW Black Books.
Lord Gunn - First Captain Vlka Fenryka - He should have had some serious page time in Primarchs: Leman Russ. It would have been good to have seen Russ with Lord Gunn fighting a bloody battle, and a bit joyful. Primarchs: Leman Russ was fantastic though, but it could have been a good opportunity to show Leman at his peak, before a form of depression had set in (Nikea, Prospero, Allexes, Wolf Cull etc etc). Lord Gunn would have reflected his bombastic personality well before the Wolf King Novella.
Shang - Equerry to Curze, Night Lords - Set up as a cool character with a cool helm in Savage Weapons and Dark King, I thought we were to learn more about this chap, or see him again. Instead he has faded into darkness.
Anvillus Dynat - Alpha Legion Harrowmaster - Well he has a model and was mentioned briefly in a anthology, but that is it. A bit strange in my opinion as I was expecting lots more from him.
Howl of the Hearthworld - No one sets up characters like ADB. He is my personal favourite writer in the Horus Heresy series (with Gav Thorpe a close second), for evidence of this just read Prince of Crows & Howl of the Hearthworld. I was really expecting to see them in Praetorian of Dorn or Master of Mankind. Hope to hear more of them soon.
So who do you think should get more limelight?
