A blood curling cough a day, keeps the assassins away

Like many of you i'm always happy to see a new Skaven novel come out, especially one related tot the awsome grey seer series!
Although with an ominous titel like that, one starts to wonder if they are going to cut off Thanqoul and make him die in the novel.
Ok a (rival)skaven of great power who dies isn't really what we might consider a loss, but having a dead special char we can field seems kind of lame :P

Ow and yes, awsome cover for the new book boneripper his pose is truely menacing!

Flem,

Somehow I get the feeling they won't truly make him "die". After all he's seen defeated many times in the Gotrek & Felix books, and even in Grey Seer and Temple of the Serpent God. Knowing Thanquol, he'll always sneak away and live to plot again.

I'm rather excited myself, as I've liked both previous books.

After reading the last two I'm eagerly awaiting this one. I really doubt Thanquol will die since he appeared in Elf Slayer as a very old (and partly decayed) rat. Besides several other armies already have deceased special characters i.e Azhag, Vlad Von Carstein, most Tomb Kings (ok bad example I suppose :P ) e.t.c. Still it should be fun to see what this "Doom" could be. Gotrek?!

According to Black Library it isn't out yet (in fact there isn't any extra information about it yet nor a likely release date) shame really. :( Still though gives us a bit of time to guess what could happen, i've noticed some Dwarfs on the front cover zap! :lol:

I certainly hope Thanquol doesn't die in this next one!
Though it will be a really good one considering Ikit Claw will be in it!

I'm thinking he won't die though, if (***Highlight next part for potential spoiler!!!***) these books take place BEFORE Elfslayer. After all it did say that this was twenty years after everything in SkavenSlayer. Since Thanquol did survive to be in ElfSlayer, and from what I got from Grey Seer suggested that the events of said book took place not long after the failed attempt at capturing the Air Ship. (***End Spoiler***)

In one description of the book it was mentioned he would be,
and in one of the topics here on the forums it was discussed a bit as well.

That's really strange as in our army book he already lives for a very long time, how could he age that dramatically in such a short period?

He was old yes, but he's a Seer, and they eat enough Warpstone to live for millennia :P

He won't die of old age any time soon.

I agree with Blader on the part of him being a Seer.
I mean, look at the Seer Lord- appearantly he's been around since the Great Summoning of the Horned Rat!

I guess we'll all have to wait for the book though to see what GW and the BL will do for Thanquol. Hopefully, the title is just a title- and not foreshadowing Thanquol's actual death.

Me and my friends talked about this a while back. However Thanqual, and Gotrek for that matter shuffle off the coil, it'll have to be the most epic thing ever.

Personally, I have my money on Thanquol channeling the Horned Rat himself and mutating into an immensly powerful Verminlord, then him and Gotrek killing each other in an epic fight that lasts for hours.

That would be the only way i'd accept either of their deaths. Great idea!
