And if the lion wakes, will he tell the lads to ditch the green armour lads, it's back to black? These are the important questions of our time!

Spotted an interesting related tidbit over on Bols, in relation to Luther escaping and possible new factions emerging:

----------------------------------------

40K: New Factions That Should Come In 2018 - Bell of Lost Souls
There are some pretty big hints in Codex: Dark Angels that The Fallen are planning something big. Luthor has escaped from the Rock and is gather his forces to him. Moreover, the Dark Angles have apparently underestimated the strength of their wayward brothers. It is now said the Luthor has nearly a Legion worth of marines gathering. Think about that. That means something like a 100,000 or more Marines. That’s a bigger force than most of the other Traitor Legions can field. And yet so far we have only one pretty meh unit and Cypher. If these guys are going to be major players moving forward they need a better way to be represented on the table top. Giving them their own Codex could be pretty cool, since they have survived mostly intact. Give them a lot of old 30K stuff, make some old looking models for them and bam. Moreover, keep them as having both Imperium and Chaos keywords, and really use them as something new. These guys could also be easy to produce as they could use a lot of the existing CSM and Dark Angel model range.

----------------------------------------

Could it be true? a full legion of fallen angels upsetting the status quo as a new imperial/chaos faction. And what could happen if the Lion returns on top of -that- ?

I thought Luther was riddled with guilt at his betrayal and wanted absolution from the Lion? What if Luther is leading his wayward marines back to the lion to bend the knee to the Lion, the Lion waking to forgive his wayward sons and have an old school legion at his back......and add a bit of clout if you fancy yourself as the new warmaster!

Luther had frequently said that the Lion was near and would absolve him. So he could possibly be reasembling the Fallen to end the scism as penance for his sins. On the other hand.... More sinister things may be afoot.

-snip- I want to know more about this Fallen Daemon Prince, Marbas. Seems like he is a major player in this little saga, being the one who frees Luther. Where did he come from and who was he before, those are questions I want answered.

Is this guy referenced in the Dark Angels codex? Could he be Zahariel, as he seemed well on the way to become majorly chaotic, and might stand for the side wanting to pull Luther to damnation before he can repent before the Lion.
