"From Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor's Children, the Despoiler was gifted with the favour of Slaanesh in exchange for the Pythosian psyker, offered as an unblemished vessel to contain the avatar of Fulgrim's god."
It's not exactly conclusive, but if Epimetheus was the psyker that is being referred to then it opens up some interesting avenues.
"The theme behind Warhammer 40,000 isn't that the Imperium will one day emerge triumphant. It's the chronicle of how humanity ends, inch by inch."
Hrm, interesting. But will probably end unresolved, due to the frozen timeline for the 13th Black Crusade.
And yes, hope died long ago with the Emperor.
