Default The Missing Primarchs

I was looking around the internet for some information on the two missing primarchs but there was hardly anything so i was just wondering if there is any information about them that someone could give me

It's been said for a long time that GW has left those two alone so fans could make up their own fluff and then base their own armies around it. Don't want to be a 5th or 23rd or whatever Founding Chapter? Why not be one of the missing Legions instead? Don't want your Chaos Lord to be any old SM Captain-turned-Devil-worshipper? Why not make him a lost Primarch?

So you won't find any (official) info - what you will find are loads of people's stories about 'their' lost Primarch/Legion.

I like the idea that one of them is Sigmar (hinted at quite strongly a long while ago).

I tell people the other one is Jango Fett. But only to annoy 1 - 40k fans, and 2 - Star Wars fans. So I figure that's OK.

Jango Fett would make a swell Primarch

i found fluff on the second primarch ut of course it isnt true. his name was tempus praetor and his legion was called the emperor's templars. thats about it

Here is the beginning of my fluff for my Iron Warriors Eighth Grand Company https://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=51842

"A fortress is a living thing: the commander its brain, the walls its bones, the sensors its eyes and ears, the troops its blood, their weapons its fists. This tells us two things: If one organ fails, the whole dies. And if the whole dies, no single organ can survive alone."

Well Omegus could be one, he and Alpharius might not be one in the same. Who knows?

GW is the eternal circle.
It creates and destroys.
Inspires and demorilises.
Gives Birth and Murders.
That is Games Workshop.

there is zero on the identity of the primarch but i dont like the idea of GW leaving it open to fans to make it up themselves. there needs to be some definate info on them seeing now as the HH books are out and its cronicaling that era in the 40k universe. they have gave us teaser info in lightning tower/dark king so hopefully they will reveal all sometime in the HH series or even do a little side series and explain all to us.
dan abnett would do a awesome job if its anything like GG or graham mcneill is another auther i like. saying that i just realised that they wrote lightning tower/dark king and may have a plan in the works for this.
if the game side of things went bust theres nothing stopping black library continuing as they are constantly bringing out good novels.
