Well the idea of the HH is juvenile. Daddy E scolded Lorgar so he turned to chaos!Daddy E is back at home working on something lets turn to chaos!

Emporers Champion I agree with reever, I all ways thought that they were just blood drops on Sang.

Engindeer Wait, Horus has the 'Eye of Terra' on his armor, right. And the sons of horus, has the 'eye of horus' on their armor. But when abbadon denounced horus and re-named the legion, the black legion, they still kept their eye iconography, although with the inclusion of an eight-pointed chaos star

- so what 'eye' do the black legion represent on their armor?

Probably several times but i was not here for them and google kept giving me Egyptian answers about the eye of Horus. Sorry to get you so exacerbated.

Everyone else who had something helpful, I appreciate it.

darkreever If you look carefully, the symbols on Sanguinius's armour are not actually eyes. But instead they are blood drops, one of his own personal symbols.

Unlike the eye symbols on Horus, the symbols on Sanguinius taper to a point upwards but not downwards. They remain fat and round, like a tear drop of blood.
