Page 9 said:...The Emperor's great armies have served their purpose. Now is the time for the Legions to be disbanded and the Space Marines set to other tasks guarding the worlds of humanity and policing the new regimes. The warrior lords that are the Primarchs are to become the rulers of worlds and administrators of the Grand Plan.
Personaly i still think a Heresy would of taken place, since at the end of they day thats alot of territory all for the taking. And 1 of the Primachs would of siezed the initiative. So i do think he would have much time to give them jobs and farm wheat, since i think they would of been fightring one another anyways.Lets just say that the Emperor completed the crusade and he had planned, what jobs would the Primarchs have in an all imperial galaxy?
I don't think that would be the best idea. Sure, he was charismatic when he wanted to be, but he also had real issues with people who didn't share his same beliefs or opinions. Religion or no religion, Lorgar was an over-zealous fanatic and that doesn't create a good atmosphere for diplomacy.Lorgar is a funny one I had to think damn hard about, then I had this idea. If they could be cured of their need for religious worship the Word Bearers are a pretty charismatic bunch. I could see Lorgar heading up some sort of grand diplomatic corps, The Adeptus Diplomatica. They could handle disputes between planets within the Imperium and enforce diplomatic neutrality with warriors from the Word Bearers legion acting as escorts and guards for ambassadors within the Imperium. The word bearers themselves could be used as ambassadors to either human or alien cultures which the Imperium encounters. After all most of the Primarchs and the Emperor seem to want the fighting to stop at some point which means that somebody's going to have to talk to the Eldar and Tau. May as well be Lorgar.
Hmm I'm not so sure. The Space Wolves have a protectorate of worlds which they routinely patrol and guard (check out Sons of Fenris for more on this) Russ being a battle King I can see settling down to rule his sector, he may have been a righteous ass kicker but remember he was also very willing to settle down and enjoy the fruits of peace. That's not to say he wouldn't take control of a campaign and lead the wolves into battle, after all he was one of the most gifted commanders amongst the Primarchs. He would also need time to write his book.Good ideas what you've put up ther Coder59. Alpha Legion like you said are blantenly a spy network/black ops. Although i believe Russ would be part of the rapid reaction force aswell. Regarding Sanguinius, if the Emperor had completed his work and did leave Terra for things again i would see the Blood Angels continuing their role as the Emperors personal guard legion. Dorn on a similar note remaing the defenders of terra and in large the sol system.
Aahhh no. Problem with the Webway is that while the transport is safer and faster than warp travel you're also limited as to where you go.I think it would be something as simple as dividing up the Imperium and giving each primarch and his legion an area to run and govern as they see fit but in line with the Emperors objectives. There would be no real need to have too many large mobile fleet based operations as the Imperium would have the webway, the slightest hint or rebellion and legions of SM's could pour out on the world in question.
Granted this idea mainly wrests on Lorgar being cured of his zealotism. If that couldn't happen he's a gettin a purging. But if you could cure him of that he would be a very shrewd politician. It's perfectly plausible that he could be turned onto politics instead of purging.Here's how I see a meeting going with Lorgar and another human empire.
Lorgar: Greetings my lost brothers of humanity. Joy fills my heart to see that we have found another strong bastion of man to unite under the imperial banner. Of course you would have to adapt to imperial way of life but such things are small obstacles when compared to the Emperor's great plan.
Foreign dignitary: Though we rejoice to find our lost brothers of mankind we will not simply bend backwards and let you take the lead. We have our own beliefs, traditions and culture and will not simply have them wiped out for the sake of your unity or your Emperor.
Lorgar: But, but... your wrong.
Foreign dignitary: It's not as simp- (Lorgar chops his head off)
Oh without a doubt. But most of the time the Angels and Fists wouldn't really be needed at the side of the Emperor in all their strength. The rest of the time they would probably run around the galaxy putting out fires and bustin Orc Heads. Pretty much as they do now.Good ideas what you've put up ther Coder59. Alpha Legion like you said are blantenly a spy network/black ops. Although i believe Russ would be part of the rapid reaction force aswell.
