The new Space Marine art book (I think it's called Might of the Emperor) has an interesting picture of Cypher and other dark angels. It's worth a look.

That is really interesting fluff and make me want to know more about his character, along with him in all likely hood carrying the Lion sword. Doesn't seem to be happening though.
^^ This.

That is some awesome fluff right there. GW please grace us with more of this please!

@Emperorguard500 Necropost, and as far as i remember it really didn't bring any new fluff to the table =( cypher is supposedly moving closer to terra and the theory is that he needs to "kill" emperor's corpse so he can ressurect in a new body or as a starchild

Bit of a gamble on his part if he is truly loyal....

@Tawa well everything we know so far points at that he is "loyal" and hopefully gw fluff department will get some balls to move the story beyond 999.M41, maybe with a new rulebook?

Either way he's an interesting character that needs something doing with him

He was almost entirely written out of the DA codex, much like Moriar in the BA codex.

I'd wager unless he gets a one person rulebook (kinda like the daemon one that just came out) with this GW Advent thing going on he's dust in the wind for a while.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
