Would have preferred a Ciaphas Cain series honestly. . .

I think a Gaunt's Ghosts series a la Band of Brothers (I am aware that's basically completing a circle of influence) would be excellent. Especially in the new age of high quality TV.

I'm between two minds about a 40K series.

On the one hand, it would be a chance to see a setting I love get onto the screen outside of games and artwork.

On the other hand, I can only imagine how much they'd scrimp on the background and lore to make it accessible to everyone.

A friend of mine is planning on running a Wrath & Glory campaign, but they don't really know that much about the 40K universe, so they've asked me to clear up a few things, or at least my thoughts on them. So here are 4 myths and why they're busted.

- The Imperium really loves Exterminatus!

- Every Imperial World is a hellhole.

- The Imperium is just like the Galactic Empire.

- The Imperium of Man is evil.
