Default Favorite parts from the Cain series

"You've come here to take our world!"
...
As he came into the light I could see his face was painted blue
"But you'll never take our freedom!"

From page 77 of the omnibus. lol, I LOVE the Cain book...

I enjoyed the Cain books, but the "if I had only known how much more dangerous this decision would turn out..." started to wear on me.

In 'For the Emperor' when Cain goes to the Governors Palace for that dinner/party, that bit always gets me laughing. :funny:

I really like the bit where Cain has to stop the Dirigible bomb in Duty Calls, just a top-notch action scene where I didn't expect it.

My favorite, however, has to be Cain's constant showing up of the other Commissar in the one where they are fighting Chaos. He chumps that guy relentlessly, all book long, and its wonderful. He should have a guy to better in every book.

And yes, I concur that the Cain books kind of wallow in their sameness after a while. The new Cain book drinking game goes like this:

Drink when Jurgen's odor is referenced.
Drink if Cain never would have done it if he knew how dangerous it was gonna turn out.

In Caves of Ice (I think), Cain even goes so far as to say something along the lines of "We have to nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." ;D

I particularly remember one bit by Amberley when she references the names of a couple of worlds. "Sodall" and "Sodallagain" were the two names and she gave the quip that they were found by an explorer and named them for the fact they had nothing of interest

I love the bit where--

Hell, I love the entire series!

But, to choose one part, it had to be every time that Amberly referred to Sulla as a horrible writer.

I love the book through and through, somuch so that I do not buy any other 40k stories anymore. ;D

But in regards to one of the more memorable scenes in the entire series;

1)In Death or Glory where the entire ramshakled Imperial forces was getting beat up, and he was again trying to run, only to run into the Warboss of the entire Warghh!!!

"Oh nads, it's Korbul' is classic.

My all time favorite part is in Caves Of Ice when the promethium filled tunnels go up and leave a continent sized crater in the ground.
