Default First Heretic - Big Spoilers

Don't read this if you don't want to spoil your idea of the reasons behind the two lost Primarchs and their legions





OMG!

The first real info has finally been mentioned in relation to the two "lost" legions and it's made it even more intriguing tbh. I don't believe that the Emperor himself had them properly purged and had the other Primarchs swear to never speak of them again. I wonder what they could of done to merit such action, especially since Lorgar himself was on the verge of receiving the same treatment is seems. I'm only half way through the book roughly but I just had to mention this, it really seems as if the truth will finally come out eventually, we keep getting hints and they are steadily getting more substantial.

I'm working on fluff for my own interpretation of Legio II and it would be similar to Lorgar's path...

Considering that the Emperor consulted the other Primarchs on whether or not to purge Lorgar and his boys for simply worshipping him, maybe their crimes were not so bad as first suspected. They may have remained loyal to the Emperor till the end, but did not toe the party line. This really shows how ruthless the Emperor truly was. He was willing to wipe out possibly his most loyal and devoted son simply because he saw him as a divine being.

At least we now know that they were purged, and it puts an end to the theories of them falling off the edge of the galaxy, etc. At this rate I think we'll find out what happened to them by the end of the series.

By purged I assume it means they were killed right? not just banished?

Seems that way with regard to the primarchs anyway. It's also hinted that the Smurfs benefitted from the fall of these legions by taking in surviving marines.

I'm glad this is not the case, or at least right now doesn't appear to be. If GW intends to still keep the lost legions "lost" then I imagine the most effective way they could incorporate this into the 40k world would to keep some of the Heresy Mysterious. The only question is what? There are certain parts of the Heresy I hope that get revealed I just hope the information that remains a secret isn't anything I will miss.

Ughh, I can't wait any longer to get this book. Have it pre-ordered and it should arrive in 4-5 days. This and Firedrake. I can already tell The First Heretic is going to be one the best HH books so far.

Truth is Treason in an Empire of lies.

You shouldn't worry......i got it before the release date and i must say.........Damn...Lorgar is one whiny bitch......And The ultrasmurfs are made up of 3 legions two of which the emperor offed the primarchs of? WTF??????

Also this book only has a few good points...

-Ultramarines are ass holes
-the Emperor is an ass
-Lorgar is a pansy
-Erebus and Kor made lorgar there bitch.

that is all.

No... So did five primarchs. Lets see... we got
1. Guilliman having Logar kneel before the emperor and himself
2. Ferrus Manus told him to bugger off
3. Fulgrim showing off how much better he is then him
4. Corax kicking his ass
5. And pretty much Konrad Curze save his ass and told him he's a bitch

I kind of feel bad for Logar. His legion bearing down witness to him being a bitch to other primarchs.
