It had some Gortek and Felix in it.

I have been a part of a community (VERY slow community right now) of amateur writers who wrote lots in the WH and WH40K universe. If anyone wants to check it out, head over to Imperial Literature: Imperial Literature | Science Fiction and Fantasy

PS: I know a couple of members of that site used to tout Space Marine by Ian Watson as one of the best they had read, but it was very hard to come by. Amazon.com: Space Marine (Warhammer 40, 000) (9781852838409): Ian Watson: Books Hmmm... For some reason I thought it had been reprinted. I guess I was wrong.
I believe its in a collection now is it not? Let the Galaxy Burn I believe.

Oh, I also suggest Ravenor and Gideon novel series. Inquisitors, but still plenty of action and you get a look inside more of the Imperial culture than the other books offer. Also Titanicus, its about a Legio of Titans also written by Abnett.
