As far as I'm aware there's not a lot of fluff on Altansar aside from it being stuck in the eye for ten thousand years and being dragged out by maugan ra.
Is there any evidence that they were in contact with the other craftworlds? If not would they have aspect warriors?
I do run aspects in my Altansar force but I also like storm guardians (kitbashed with dark eldar bits for a more piratical look) and it made me curious about how typical of a craftworlds force they are.

Aspect temples were raised on craftworlds when Asurmen and the other phoenix lords traveled to them, its stated that Asurmen himself traveled to each of them so they should at least have Dire avengers.

It's a shame they stopped the phoenix lord novels since maugan ra was teased at the end of Jain zar, could have been some interesting lore in there.

Are they actually stopped? I thought they were just taking a while.

Having read them I sincerely hope not. Writing of that quality doesn't keep you busy.

It seems pretty much a given that they would have dark reapers, given their founder lived on altansar....

So Avengers and reapers at the minimum.

Gav wrote in a Q&A (2017) that "Currently the plan for novels is to cover the original six (seven if we include Arhrha / Karandras separately)..."

In another Q&A he informed us that he wouldent be writing the next book in the series.

The ynarri books may not be works of great literature, what from the black library is, but the wild rider book is pretty cool for the dive into saim Han culture.
Hopefully the rest of the phoenix lord books come out, the stuff from around the time of the fall I enjoyed greatly, in particular.

Seems that their culture rotates around bitch*** about everything..

I really enjoyed "ghost warrior" though.

I loathed Ghost Warrior. Almost nothing made sense and it was like the person writing it knew nothing beyond spess elf

The patriarch avatar was terrible but apart from that it wasn't too bad.

It also wasn't too good. Or even eh.

It was a bit weird, yes, but I liked it.

I also really enjoyed the funny ping-pong between Azkahr and Meliniel. I think its a real shame that Gav did nothing with that in "wild rider".

Lets hope he does them justice in the next novel.
