  1. It's by Clint Werner, actually. I haven't written any AoS in about a year.
  2. Pretty much. It's not a question of Nagash knowing. It's a question of Nagash caring.
  3. Bear in mind that this doesn't preclude rebellion of some sort. Mannfred rebels all the time, often loudly and with explosions. Arkhan rebels as well, albeit in more subtle ways. So does Neferata. Think of it like Doombots. Dr. Doom (bad guy from the Fantastic Four, if you're not familiar with comics) makes robot doubles of himself to undertake dangerous tasks, enact certain schemes or to do the stuff he doesn't want to bother with. These doubles are so perfect that they assume that they're the real Doom, unless he's in the room with them - and even then, some of them maintain a strong suspicion that they're real and he's not. And since they think like Doom, they act like Doom. So they plot and scheme against each other (and the the real Doom) because there can only be one Doom, and obviously it's them. Basically, Nagash has absolute control, except when he doesn't, because his servants are all to one degree or another shadows of him. Which means that like him, some want to be on top and they'll knock over anyone they have to, to do it. Including him. If he's paying attention, he can swat them down without any real difficulty. But if he's not (say, because he's preoccupied waging war on Sigmar, Archaon et al), then there's a good chance they might get away with it for a while. So if you want your Death leader to be a rebel against Nagash, the established meta-narrative is flexible enough to fully support that. Same as if you want them to be an unwilling slave of Nagash, a contented servant, or an unwitting dupe. At least in my opinion. Your mileage, as they say, may vary.
  4. I'm not working on anything for Black Library or Games Workshop at the moment, so no.
  5. I'm not currently working on anything for Black Library at the moment. I was feeling a bit burned out, so I'm taking a bit of a break from Space Marines and Stormcasts to write other stuff.
  6. Nope. I pitched a novel with that title earlier this year, but it wasn't commissioned due to scheduling issues. I won't be writing any more Eight Lamentations books for the foreseeable future.
  7. If my experience is anything to go by, said Easter egg would have been vetted, first by the editors, and then by lore guys at the editing stage. If it got through, then chances are that there are no plans for Settra's return as the leader of a faction of anti-Nagash undead. Too, the likelihood of getting such a faction anytime soon is infinitesimal, and even if it did happen, it's even less likely that it would bear any resemblance, lore-wise, to the Tomb Kings. At best, I could see them adapting some of the designs for potential Deathrattle releases down the line, if only to make the skeletons look more cohesive with Nagash and Arkhan the Black. (Also, some skeletal archers would be nice, just saying...) This isn't to say that it's impossible. I am not keyed in to the company, or privy to any discussions regarding this sort of thing. But it ain't likely at this stage. tldr; it could happen, but it probably won't.
  8. I can't speak for other authors, but mine are doing much better. Soul Wars, for instance, has sold ridiculously well - Horus Heresy levels of well. In fact, the only AOS novel that I've written that can be considered to have done poorly is Spear of Shadows. Which is surprising, since everyone thought that was going to be the *only* one to earn out. And even that's sold more than any of my WHF novels that didn't have Gotrek & Felix on the cover.
  9. I'm leaning towards the former. There were plans for me to write the second book this year, as well as several short stories, but those plans got changed. At this point, both the series and the short stories are on hiatus. That might change, or it could prove indefinite. It's all up in the air at the moment, unfortunately.
  10. It's still up to date. There's no book 2 for the foreseeable future.
  11. No apologies necessary. And yep, things often change. Usually, we can catch it before a book goes to print - but sometimes not.
  12. This is probably better than any list I could make. Though I do intend to make one, at some point.
  13. You might be thinking of "Order of the Fly: Tourney of Fate" which is the beginning of a different series. It takes place after *all* of the previous Order of the Fly stories, including "The Tainted Axe".
