5.0 out of 5 stars Expecting Great Things., July 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have personally worked with Forbes in the past during hypnosis session, which where very helpful in moving me towards my goal of being a professional artist. So I know how effective his hypnosis techniques can be. This book actually takes other concepts like creative visualization and vision boards and delineates more of actually how to use them right vs just using them. Forbes actually explains why you may not be getting your all out of your vision boards, and its an idea that makes sense when you think about. And more than that, he tells you how to get full use out of your vision boards and instructs on other techniques that will help you manifest your goals. I have not had a super solid manifestation yet so perhaps I shouldn't have given this book 5 stars, but I will be more than happy to come back and justify my rating as soon as I have tried the techniques Forbe's explains in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars X is back....He's gonna take his!, September 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Undisputed [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
X is back in the latest release, his first in 6 years. While he has some solid performances in songs like Cold World and I don't dance, the long break really hurt X as far as feeling the direction he should go in. If X had released an independent album in 2004, it would have sold at least 6 times as much in his opening week. The album is pretty good for the most part, but the Dog is such a beast in the game that after 6 years every track should have killed it. Hopefully, this release will get X focused on his music and less of the B.S. X needs to take the game back, cause the game desperately needs him.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, October 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Disappointed. I really expected a lot more out of this Gotrek and Felix outing. I didn't care much for the all over the place plot to shamanslayer and zombieslayer really didn't pick up my opinion of Nathan Long's run on the series. I mean, are Gotrek and Felix really that dumb that they didn't know something was wrong with Hans the Hermit? And what about Kemmler himself, anyway? He was a joke compared to some of the foes they've faced in the past, like the albino sorcerer twin and they still couldn't get the kill over him, or even his no personality underling Krell. Krell himself seemed to be an opponent created just to occupy Gotrek's time from killing the necromancer Kemmler! At times Gotrek owned and at others they were stalemated. He was inconsistently portrayed in order to provide an obstacle to Gotrek, not advance the storyline, which was hurting itself. I mean, if people and leaders in the Empire are that dumb, it should have fallen to Chaos long ago. There was some social commentary on the decadence of the nobility and the blind, dumb loyalty that such a aristocratic system of control brings, but it was a fairly minor point in the plot. The Felix and Kat relationship is not impressing me
? Doesn't Felix know Kat was marked by dark powers from her birth and it isn't going to end well, just like all his other so-called relationships? And the whole no one knowing who Gotrek and Felix are is getting old. I could understand in other lands people not knowing who they are, but in the Reikland their reputation should be getting around considering how many threats they've killed and in light of the books Felix has published. Every other guy treating them like no name chumps is just irritating? Who does have Gotrek have to kill to gain the rep he should have? Ulrik? Nagash? The Witch King? I thought Elfslayer was a real pick up for the series despite its flaws, but these last two books have fallen kind of flat. I mean when William King wrote the books, yes they could be depressing at times, especially when he killed off characters that were growing on you, but there was also a lot of humor even amidst the darkness. Vampireslayer was a downer of a book, but zombieslayer was so depressing I wondered why any one was even fighting the bad guys. If the Empire's leadership is that incompetent, they're not going to survive another invasion any way. Even Felix, who should know better by now, seems only slightly smarter than the clueless supporting cast around him? The whole not recognizing Kemmler as a bad guy was unforgivable, but the story suffers from many things that make no sense. One of the most important castles in the Empire, Reikguard, has not one sorcerers posting to defend it? Felix not knowing of how the Axe of Grimnir is a source of Gotrek's strength? There were just too many things that irritated me about this book to enjoy it. The series hasn't had a really great book since Giantslayer. It may never have one again.

1.0 out of 5 stars McNEILL disasspoints again, June 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm gonna make this short. The ultramarines portrayed in this book come off as weak, dumb, and ineffective. How have they held ultramar as long as they have if they always do like in this book, underestimate and allow themselves to be outsmarted by the enemy. The Ultramarines didn't make a single tactically brilliant move in this entire book. In fact, we're lead to believe that an enemy force that's never even been to ultramar know their defenses better than the ultramarines do. Tigurius, the most powerful librarian in all the Imperium, comes off as weak and ineffective against the demon forces of M'kar. I mean, Tigurius should have been able to banish M'kar himself, he's so powerful in the
background information, but in this book, he can barely hold off minor demons. Mephistion of the blood angels in the novels comes off as far more powerful than his
peer, Tigurius, who was once able to scan the mind of an entire hive fleet and live to tell the tale. Too bad he's not effective at all in this book. And how was M'kar able to stand up to the Gauntlets of Ultramar, which have taken down Daemon Lords as well as Khaine avatars? M'kar was literally shrugging off blows from gauntlets that are Dark Technology Age wonders, with no explanation as to how he could do so. Calgar could beat M'kar before, but not now with Tigurius and Captain Agammon at his side? And after all the trouble he causes Hansou conveniently escapes again? With no reason as to how? The Ultramarines fleet is that weak as to be dominated like they were? I thought they were the most powerful Imperial Organization on the Eastern Fringe? Why were inquisition members in this book? They accomplished nothing. When it came down to it, why was Uriel Ventris and Cato Sicarius so not effective against Honsou and the pirate queen? Honsou was ten times the fighter Ventris was for no apparent reason all of a sudden. Even Vaanes the Raven Guard was ineffective as a hero. But he was effective as a villain. In fact, all the villains in the book cause terrible devastation while the heroes can't pull their heads out of their you know whats to figure out what's going on. And even when they do, they still make the same muck ups. Having a not so bright Uriel clone meant the Iron Warriors could override all the defense protocols of the Ultramarines? I could go on and on pointing out the flaws in this book, but I think I've said enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome....Mcneil delivers on this one, February 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been one of the more vocal critics on Mcneil's work of late, feeling that some of his heresy and sigmar and ultramarine books have fallen far short of some of his earlier works.

But this one delivers. From the view point of the Thousand Sons Space marines, it delves more deeply into the minds of the primarchs like Magnus than any of the heresy books, which up this point have done a poor job of doing the Primarchs any justice in describing their powers and personalities.

Forget the view from the Space Wolves, you see how to a great extent that the Thousand Sons were treated with great injustice and hypocrisy by the Emperor, Leman Russ, and Mortarion. Read this book and you'll see how the Thousand Sons were set up or allowed to fail from the very beginning. If you're wondering at that, let's just say the mutation problems started at the gene labs on terra, not in the times of Chaos just before the Rubric.

Where before the Thousand Sons have been painted as villains, you see any thing but as their homeworld is viciously attacked by Russ, the Praetorians, and the Sisters of Silence. The courage Ahriman and the thousand sons show in defense of their homeworld has not been seen in this series since stand of Saul Tarvitz's loyalists.

There are some questions though as how the Thousand Sons could be on the Planet of sorcerers all that time and yet have been named in accounts as being part of the attack on Terra as well as having battle with the Space Wolves on other worlds.

But after you see the hypocrisy in the attack(like Wulfen attacking thousand sons for being mutant sorcerers), you will see Magnus' legion differently.

The flew to close to the sun, but the thousand sons are now not revealed to be the villains they have been painted to be in the Space Wolves books. The Thousand Sons in the space wolves have become totally corrupted at that point and you're looking at a totally different group marines than the heroes that stand bravely in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Freddie, September 6, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Finally, in the long list of lackluster DC How to Books for comics, they hit one out of the park with the help of Mr. Williams. If you've asked, tried, and begged comic book insiders to give up some of their secrets about drawing comics in photoshop to no avail, then this book is for you. This isn't some half-baked gnomon video tutorial where they skip 5 steps between clips and the instructor is rushing through the process without
explaining what they're doing. Freddie breaks down his entire process and goes step by step. If he skipped a step in this book, then at least he fooled me. The multiple times steps are skipped in other tutorials are
far easier to spot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, April 3, 2009
For those of us that were disappointed by the Serpentwar, Darkwar, and all the books in between, this book offers a return to form. Its riveting, grabbing your attention in an iron grip and never letting go. The hardships promised by the Death Goddess to Pug began to manifest, and the ending sees the death of a certain annoying character that we've been hoping for since she first annoyed us in Shadow of a Dark Queen. Excellent book and back on track to greatness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome.....THE REIGN OF NAGASH BEGINS!, August 21, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book succeeds where books like Heldenhammer fall almost flat. In the ancient empire of Nehekhara Nagash's father dies and he begins plotting to seize total power. As royalty and a high ranking priest in the Mortuary cult, he is delighted when dark elf prisoners fall into his hands and he strikes a deal with the dangerous followers of Malekith to learn the black arts from them in order for sparing their lives.

From their it only gets better, as an epic story of world gripping ambition, black treachery and the epic struggle of Ancient civilization whose covenant with their Old Gods is threatened by the Dark Forces Nagash threatens to unleash upon the entire world.

Brave Kings and Priests of Old Gods of Nehekhara must take a stand against one of the greatest evils the world has ever seen and beware treachery from their own as they fight to preserve their way of life against the undead legions of Nagash and his evil folllowers. It all leads to an epic showdown at the most ancient city of Nehekhara between the heroes of that great civilization and the Black Necromancers evil sorcery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing.....Further Ruining of what was once a great Character, July 12, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Disapppointment abounds in this story of Sigmar, Patron Deity of the Empire.

First off, where is the fire and power? Sigmar has always been purported by the fluff to be at least part or even fully divine,but in this book he is deliberately portrayed as only a very tough guy. They practically throw out the theory that he may have been a primarch and we're left with an un-impressive German\Viking tribe wannabe.

To give him credit, he did some great feats, but never with the Power and Strength of his legend. At various times he is laid low by average guys and it seems a mere sorceress is pulling his strings in founding the Empire the entire time.

This Sigmar, he should be destroying his foes like they're nothing and have people standing in awe of him so that he is worthy to be the Patron Deity of the Empire.

One thing that has been done here and in the Horus Heresy, to horrible effect, is to portray demi-Gods as human. And while we don't our warriors to be perfect, they shouldn't possess the same flaws as common men in spades. They should be portrayed as Gods among men, facing down the greatest evils of the Warp and winning, becoming bloodied and triumphant in the process.

We don't get that in this book. What we do is get a book full of paper thin villains, meaningless romances that ruin the legend of the character, and are left with the impression that Sigmar of the 'modern' warhammer age is really just a product of hype and propaganda.

I'm noticed a fall off in Mcneill's work in the past couple of books, with this one, the defenders of ulthuan, and the latest Ultramarines book, his work has really gone down in quality since Ultramarines book with the Tyranids.

Very disappointing
