Well here's Rogal Dorn hope you like him yet again thanks to Zboy for the Fluff bit oh and Djinn for helping me come up with some rules.

Rogal Dorn Primarch of the Imperial Fists & The Black Templars

As to Rogal Dorn's fate, it is known that he outlived many of the remaining Loyalist Primarchs. He fell in battle while attempting to head off a Chaos fleet heading towards Cadia, an attempt that proved successful. His actual fate is commonly thought to be unclear: the most recently published information states that the remains of Rogal Dorn were found, and his hands are the most prized relic of the chapter. However, this appears to contradict older material which states that his body was recovered and that Dorn's entire skeleton is now on Phalanx, though this is not necessarily the case - just because his hands were mentioned does not mean they were the only thing recovered. (According to the aforementioned book, Rogal Dorn's lifeless body was returned and his skeleton encased in amber upon the Phalanx but his fists have been traditionally freed of his body and remain some of the most valuable relics the Imperial Fists have in their possession.) It is the privilege of each Chapter Master of the Imperial Fists to inscribe his heraldry, as minutely as possible, on the bones of Rogal Dorn's hands. It is said that even though the signatures are so small a space marine can hardly read them, there is hardly any room left that is unmarked by a Chapter Master's sign.

Rogal Dorn climbed over the Iron Warrior's defenses, revving up his chainsword, as he watched his sons rip into their former brethren, each loyalist space marine fighting like men possessed, they all flung themselves at the Iron Warriors, many taking mortal wounds, but still fighting on.

And with a huge bellowing roar, Rogal charged into the heretical marines, cloak billowing behind, his chainsword ripping through armor and flesh with ease, spattering himself in blood as he pulled his blade from his opponent and blew the head from his opponent.

"Come out Traitor, face me" Rogal challenged his brother, as the small arms fire intensified, shells pingin off his armor "Face me heathen" and with a roar he ran headlong into the Iron warriors fortifications with his son behind him, bringing the wrath of the Emperor to their lost brothers.....

Soulspear is a kick ass weapon, but I don't think Dorn ever used it. He is always portrayed using his HUGE chainsword and a bolt pistol. The Soulspear was an item he found/won and he gave it to the Blood Drinkers to show that he would always be with them. I never saw a reference in which he actually used the spear. I like the rules how they are right now for Dorn. Maybe add a rule about any squad he is with automatically counts as being in cover if charged as he was a master defense strategist.

Also can you fix Sanguinius a little :) He is my favorite Primarch and I think his strengths as stated in 40k lore arent exactly represented in his stats. Throw me a PM and I'll fill you in on what I mean!

Otherwise great work!
