But still, whether Angron wants it or not, he is his Legion’s gene-father, the sire they all look up to with utmost deference and trust, and anyway he is not to be blamed for what had been done to him – which is, I suppose, one of the most poignant tragedies of the entire Horus Heresy. The denouement is Angron shoving nails in his own men’s heads to “improve” them, all the while moaning about how unfair it is that some of his Space Marines favoured sticking pointy things in one's enemies, not your own cerebellum. It also shows little glimpses of Angron's early life in the gladiatorial cages and it's not all murder/death/kill.

For the XII Legion, once the War Hounds and now the World Eaters, the line between strength and flaw is almost impossible to separate.It's a common problem I find in the 40k setting for the choices the characters make to be completely inexplicable because of how terrible they are, and perhaps this is best exemplified by the World Eaters.

Set mere months into Angron taking leadership of the Legio XII, he is still a stranger to many of his sons.Martin utilised a fairly inventive take to examine this and shed further light on his time among the gladiators.

Essentially, the World Eaters’ tale is the chronicle of desperate ambitions and false choices, paternal indifference and filial mistakes, shattered brotherhoods and subsequent lies of the decaying Imperium too ashamed to remember the truth. There are so many things this book does right, especially in terms of action pacing and Angron's past. Even though the quality of its individual stories may vary slightly, Horus Heresy: Primarchs – the ongoing set of tales about the greatest of the Emperor’s children forging the fate of a whole galaxy – is one of my favourite Black Library series. Angron has only been at the centre of one novel before, Betrayer, and a handful of short stories — most notably After De’Shea by Matthew Farrer, and Butcher’s Nails and Lord of the Red Sands by Aaron Dembski-Bowden (all three are collected in Angron).Martin draws back the curtain on one of the most important events in the World Eaters’ history: the adoption of the Butcher’s Nails.
