Hey, there's something I don't quite understand about the ending of Salvation's Reach, when the the Imperials broadcast messages in blood pact combat code. Don't the Sons of Sek only have to lookat the Tanith to know it's all a ruse? I thought the point was there would be some left alive to tell the tale because the Guard didn't intend to destroy Reach completely.
I wish they fleshed out Sar Arf's character more. After Prospero Burns I was hoping for a similar treatment for the Scars, after the side comments about their battle craft in Little Horus in Age of Darkness. I understand the focus is on the Ghosts, but I have to admit the Space Marines were a big draw when I heard they were in the strike force.
