I hated the Newcrons at first, but after some experience I rather like them.

I just want to chime in on the topic there and say that I think Newcrons, AKA "Tomb Kings in Spess", is the worst thing since the reversible lederhosen.

As far as I'm concerned, Matt Ward hasn't written a single line of fluff - or as I prefer to think of it, Ultramarines fan-fiction - that isn't implicitly or explicitly terrible.

I just want to chime in and say that your white-hot hatred of anything written by Matt Ward just tickles me pink. Shine on.

 

Constructive.

Ward also wrote about the incorruptible Grey knights having even more incorruptible incorruptible members and the whole Grey Knights killing sisters of battle to make blood paint of protection out of their blood.

Now, conviction that you're incorruptible is pride (be it true or not) and pride is how chaos made it's way into the heart of Horus.

 

And I could so see why a tainted GK would get the idea of annointing his fellows in the blood of the Sisters of Battle.

I think the "corruption" is meant in two different senses here. IIRC the story in the Codex has magic warp-blood that corrupt people when it touches them, that the Knights had to protect themselves from. Not corruption in the sense of being seduced away by demonic wiles.

The Draigo fluff is the best. It's not even a character background, it's just a list of the things the guy has punched. That entire GK dex is some clownpants nonsense.
