Ok I know the Space Wolves Omnibus books are older (1999), but come on, the fluff has been out for ages. GW earliest descriptions of Space Marines describes them as over 7ft tall, and if memory serves 8ft in power armor.
Sooo.. given that information. When your asked to write about one of the cornerstones of the fluff (ie space marines), get it right. Don't describe a female psyker as being "almost as tall", or an imposing Imperial Commander as being "taller than Sergeant..".. Reeeally, so Yao Ming is a Commissar?
First book was great, second book..story is great, but when you can't get the basics down.. meh. I'll keep going and pretend I didn't read it, or that the commander is wearing some disco lifts or something.
