The MartinAug 3, This lovely book is a hard back book, small, looks like something an imperial guardsman would carry into the field. Knowing the truth about how dangerous they are doesn’t change the fact that even the least Termagant is a savage, relentless and utterly fearless two hundred kilo beast covered in chitinous armour and wielding a weapon that spews acid-blooded, flesh-eating beetles at you.
