Default A big fluff suprise for DarK Angels

I noticed this bit on BolS. So perhaps the changeling was successful after all, despite being driven off by one of the watchers in the dark.




Luther has escaped his ten-thousand year confinement!

Finally! I immediately went to consult 6th edition DA codex where is exact section and only this one sentence about Luther was added.

Now I think is the right time to make fake Hunt book a reality.

Clearly they are setting the Dark Angels up for something. Could the Lion have nabbed him? Luther did babble about the Lion being near and that he would absolve him.

This is huge. Almost as big as the return of a primarch. When you throw Cypher into the mix, things are going to get very interesting for the DA.

Escaped or set free?

Yet to be revealed. The current fluff as it stands in The Wrath of Magnus is that the Changeling had infiltrated the DA, fooling them into the attack on the SWs. When revealed, he is persued through the Rock by the DA hierarchy, along with Ragnar Blackmane, a GK captain, and an Inquisitor, IIRC. He seems to be heading deep into the most secretive parts of the Rock, able to access doors and vaults only Azreal should have been able to. He gets banished when a Watcher appears...

"...the Changling found his way barred: not by the embattled heroes, but by a diminutive figure that was hidden entirely by white robes and carried a graven crozius in both arms. The Daemon recoiled in horror, for the creature before it was anathema to its kind. The creature focussed its baleful glare, and the Changeling turned and fled."

This would not lead you to think he'd managed to set Luther free, but I think we'll see a campaign similar to Warzone: Fenris to tell us the whole story, and reveal the Lion to his brother. Also, 130 years have passed in the timeline since that, so anything is possible.

Imagine how pissed the Lion is going to be when he wakes up. Thought he should have been made Warmaster, doesn't get it. Was never a huge fan of Girlyman, and after sleeping for 10,000 years, he's probably expecting to finally be the main man. But oh no, there's Girlyman, fresh as a daisy, running the Imperium again. Frustrating to say the least.

Maybe he will be warmaster, maybe girlyman will make the lion warmaster so girlyman can get a grip of running the imperium

I personally think this will be huge for W40k. So far the DA's worst secret laid dormant but what will happen now?
How will Imperium or Roboute react if Lions wakes? What actual disaster will happen that Lion will wake up? Will Rock be destroyed? How will Lion react to current state of the Imperium? And what about Luther and Cypher?
Salvation or damnation will come for Dark Angels. I just hope they will make it right and not with some cliche outcome.

And I am pledging myself here before everyone that if Lion awakes I will start DA army.
