So I'm borrowing an idea from the alternate heresy generator, but changing stuff which I didn't like so I have a good story. Well, I guess, here it is: The Guilliman Heresy. Remember, It's a WIP, and it takes place as though Roboute Guilliman was the Warmaster of the Imperium, rather than Horus. Enjoy :victory:.

The Great Crusade:

Before the Heresy shaped the fate of the rest of the galaxy forever, Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines was the first Primarch to be discovered by The Emperor, and the Ultramarines legion gifted to him in his honour. As they set out, they conquered the galaxy planet by planet, finding more and more Primarchs and regrouping them with their legions. After the Ullanor Crusade, Guilliman was promoted to Warmaster, and his legion re-named the Sons of Guilliman.

Already tainted by the Chaos Gods, Lorgar of the Word Bearers informed Guilliman that his Homeworld Macragge had rebelled against the Imperium, and declared itself independent. Guilliman, furious at how his Homeworld could ever rebel, ordered his legion to attack Macragge immediately. On the way, he was convinced that the Emperor had abandoned him and his legion by Lorgar, and ordered his friends in the Imperial Fists and the White Scars to aid him in his conquest. It was here on Macragge where Guilliman would destroy his Homeworld and the few loyalists of his, Dorn’s and The Khan’s legion. Dorn was initially loyal to the Emperor at first, but turned to Guilliman’s side when The Destroyer Hive attacked their ship during warp travel. Craving salvation, the Imperial Fists called on Nurgle to help them, and so the Plague Marines were formed, with the Imperial Fists changing their name to the Infernal Knights. As Jaghatai Khan was close friends with Guilliman, he turned with little persuasion.

Massacre on Macragge:

First, the Warmaster needed to dispense of the elements of his, Dorn’s and the Khan’s legion that he knew would never forsake the Emperor, so he organised them into squads of his own choice. Leading the attack would be Akkard Kordon, a loyalist of the Sons of Guilliman. Kordon was a legend in his own time, his skill of the blade unmatched by nobody except the Primarchs, and he was loyal to the Emperor until death. The Warmaster knew he would never turn, thus appointed him as head of the spearhead. So Kordon lead the attack on Macragge, and took the Citadel with just over three companies. Just as he did however, they had warnings from loyalist elements of the White Scars that Virus Bombs were being deployed to crush the people of Macragge and Astartes alike. So, Kordon ordered the troops to get to cover. After Kordon had survived the bombardment, the White Scars who had become madmen, bezerkers of Khorne after the Sicorasi Incident, deployed immediately afterwards, with The Great Khan leading the assault. Then, The Warmaster decided to deploy his own elements of the Infernal Knights and the Sons of Guilliman to support the White Scars, who struck the loyalists lines like a thunderbolt.

Flight of the Emperor’s Grace:

Whilst the battle took place below, a loyalist of the Sons of Guilliman, Nero Vyze seized a frigate known as the Emperor’s Grace, and took roughly half a company of the loyalists who remained on board, and the White Scars’ 4th Captain Traino Nogai and his company who had refused to embrace the blood god joined Vyze’s Marines, who had re-named themselves the Ultramarines, and set course for Terra to warn the Emperor. A small fleet of the Infernal Knights followed them, but the loyalists managed to carry the news to a nearby fleet of the Luna Wolves, whilst their brothers died from the traitors attack on Macragge.

++++

I'll update as I go along, and I hope you enjoyed this, comments and critisisms are appricated. Next up is what happens when Vyze's Ultramarines and Nogai's White Scars meet Horus, Primarch of the Luna Wolves.

Really Cool.
I like how you re-named the Imperial Fists and replaced certain events and names so that it is not a completely different heresy. Looking forward to the next part.

Here's the next part. Enjoy!

+++++

Heresy Unleashed:

When Vyze informed Horus of the news about his fallen brothers, Abbaddon of the Mournival nearly killed him for this blasphemy. Only Gavriel Loken stayed Abbaddon’s hand, and made them listen to the whole tale. Then, Horus decided to take the grave news to the Emperor. In the end, the Emperor decided to send seven legions to meet the Sons of Guilliman, The White Scars and Infernal Knights in battle, the legions being Magnus the Red’s Thousand Sons, Corax’s Raven Guard, Fulgrim’s Emperor’s Children, Mortarion’s Death Guard, The Lion’s Dark Angels, Ferrus Manus’s Iron Hands and Angron’s World Eaters.

The Iron Warriors and the Luna Wolves were recalled to Terra to ready the bastion for war. The Legions of the Emperor should have beaten the traitors due to superior numbers, but strategy was overturned by treachery, as Corax had already sworn his legion to Tzneetch, Mortarion to Slaneesh, Ferrus Manus, The Lion and Alpharius had embraced Chaos Undivided. Magnus, Fulgrim and Angron’s armies were heavily massacred. Angron died bringing down Corax in a Primarch on Primarch battle, with Magnus vanishing beneath the overwhelming tide of traitor legions that poured over the hills of Calth. Only a company of marines, Saul Tarvitz, Fulgrim, Ahriman and Lucius among them escaped the slaughter to bring new to the God-Emperor.

After Calth had been destroyed, The Arch-Traitor Guilliman ordered The Lion to delay Sanguinius of the Blood Angels, and so they met in a titanic battle above Baal. The result was a massacre, with the sons of Sanguinius depleted to a company strong. The Lion would have wanted to continue the hunt, but The Warmaster ordered him to join the rebellion armies as they began lay siege to Terra and the Emperor’s Palace. On the way to Terra, the Night Lords launched a suicidal boarding attack on Guilliman’s ship, named The Reaper of Worlds. Konrad Cruze led the attack himself, confronting Guilliman in a final battle which led to the fall of the Night Lords Primarch and the destruction of all but a company of their legion, and eve that was grievously wounded. Whilst trying to reach Terra, the Space Wolves and the Salamanders fleets disappeared in space, striking a tragic blow to the loyalists, and presumed lost. They only had a company of Night Lords with no Primarch, a company of Blood Angels with a shell-shocked Primarch, a depleted Emperor’s Children, Thousand Sons and World Eaters legion with no World Eaters or Thousand Sons Primarch, and the only legions that remained intact were Horus’s Luna Wolves and Pertuabo’s Iron Warriors.

The Siege of Terra

The Warmaster’s legion struck Terra with little time wasted, the White Scars appearing out of orbit first, hurling their bezerk bikers of Khorne at the front lines of the enemy, led by Jaghatai Khan. Immediately afterwards, the Iron Hands exited warp-space, and set about conquering Mars, but were no match for the wrath of Ferrus Manus. The next legions to enter real-space were the Sons of Guilliman themselves, and the Infernal Knights under command of Rogal Dorn. It was the arch-traitor who landed on Terra and launched a second wave of attacks at the palace. The next legion to exit warp-space was not the Raven Guard, nor the Dark Angels, but it was Vulkan and Russ, and their Space Wolves and Salamanders. Deploying inside the Emperor’s palace, the two Primarchs greeted their brethren with relief on their faces. They had suffered all the perils of the warp and lived to tell the tale, to get to their beloved Emperor. When the White Scars led a second attack with support from the other legions, it was Russ and his Space Wolves which met the bikers of Khorne with unyielding fury, and it was Russ who tore Jaghatai Khan in half, obeying his Emperor. The loyalists would have cheered, but two more fleets arrived above Terra to join the Warmaster; Alpharius and the Alpha Legion, and the Raven Guard. The Dark Angels were nowhere to be seen.

That's all, folks :cool:.

Fall of a legend

It was in this moment that Russ became exposed, surrounded and cut off by enemy fire. It was in this moment that the newly arrived Corax met him head on in a duel, with the Traitor besting the loyalist. Just as Corax drove a blow into his heart, Vulkan strode forward with Terminator Armoured veterans to avenge his brother’s death. Carving his axe into Corax’s head, Vulkan cut an end to the threat of the Raven Guard. Vulkan drove onwards, depleting the traitor legions one space marine by one. Prehaps the traitors would have retreated there and then, if not for the arrival of the Dark Angels, the Lion leading his legion into the fray. The traitors redoubled their efforts, and soon pushed the loyalists back to the Throne Room, where all who remained were shielded within. Sanguinius had fallen buying time for his beloved father, and Tarik Torgaddon of Mournival flung himself in front of bullets that could have killed his fellow brother, Gavriel Loken. In rage, Loken slew a Dreadnought of the Sons of Guilliman that had brought down Torgaddon, and fell back. Little Horus died fighting Lion El’Jonson of the Dark Angel, and only Abbaddon and Loken remained. Indeed, the surviving Mournival members fought with unyielding fury to protect Horus, who commanded his section of the palace. When the Jaghatai Khan himself led the assault on the Imperial Palace, those that remained were The God-Emperor himself, Horus, Abbaddon and Loken of the Luna Wolves along with two squads of Terminators armoured veterans, Perturabo and his first company, Sanguinius and five Blood Angels, Vulkan and a Company of Salamanders, Fulgrim, Saul Tarvitz and Lucius along with five Tactical Squads of the Emperor’s Children, and few others, including Khán of the World Eaters And so, knowing that their death was near, they prepared to charge out and end their tale in glory.

The Final Battle

It was then, that Guilliman lowered the shields on his battle barge. Nobody can say for sure why he did it, but it was his one and only mistake. Sensing his weakness, The God-Emperor seized his chance, and with his loyal bodyguard, teleported right into the heart of the viper’s nest.

They fought themselves through things no longer human, Abaddon falling to a Daemon Prince of Khorne, which was brought low by the God-Emperor himself. It was when they entered the bridge where Guilliman was standing, and he tossed the dead body of Fulgrim at his attackers. The Emperor’s Children legion then opened fire on Guilliman, but could do little damage. It was then that the God-Emperor clashed with his misleaded son, in a battle that would change the fate of mankind. Indeed, Horus and the others would have aided their Emperor, but were halted by Daemonic reinforcements. The God-Emperor split Guilliman in half after a day of fighting, and his favoured son fell to the floor, but in doing so he had wasted his strength. It was Horus who found the blasted remains of the Emperor’s body, and attached him to the Golden Throne under his command. Without a leader, the traitor’s forces broke and withdrew from Terra. Victory had been the Imperials, but at a great cost. The Great Crusade lay in ruin, and the Emperor’s dreams smashed. But Humanity was saved, and the routing of the traitors into the Eye of Terror began.
