Talk:Horus Heresy

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

I know there is already a citation being called for but this "Mortarion, already a close friend of his brother's, was too easily persuaded, having been turned long before the Heresy through the efforts of his first captain Calas Typhon." The IA, I believe, states that Mortarion and his legion minus Typhus turned after they became stranded in the warp. And that was after the Istvann massacre IIRC


In the Dropsite Massacre section; The whole battle can be RESUMED from Horus phrase. I admit that 'sumarise' is a dictionary definition of 'Resume', but only after having to go away and look it up in a dictionary. I found this word confusing in this context, and would have it replaced with 'sumarised' or 'summed up'. --RCgothic 09:40, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Would it be feasible to state which Traitor Legions, if not all, took part in the final Siege of Terra? From the way it seems at the end of A Thousand Sons they 10KS never took part in the battle, however other fluff seems to show that all the Traitors were present? Could anyone find a quotable source to verify this? --DrMarius 21:36, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

I remember reading somewhere that the emperor did not wish to truly fight Horus until he found the body of Sanguinius and he witnessed Horus slay one of the Custodes. [Though I also have heard in the original telling it was not a Custode but a Guardsman captain though for the life of me I can not think of his name] and it was actually seeing Horus commit that act which the Emperor realized that his son was lost. Are ether of these account correct? if so do they bare mentioning in the entry? --Dragonsamurai7 11:13, 29 October 2010

They can only be entered with correct official sourcing. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 15:21, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Drop Site Massacre

In editing the 'Drop Site Massacre' section a question has arisen. From the description, the SM forces dispatched by the Emperor totaled 7, 3 loyalist (Iron Hands, Salamanders, Raven Guard), and 4 traitor (Word Bearers, Night Lords, Iron Warriors, Alpha Legion).

Why then are there '5' legions escaping Istvaan V? --Anoctris 08:21, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Maybe a typo or error. Grab a footnote and burn that heretic sentence ;-) --DetlefK 16:43, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I just saw that this whole section is unsourced and differs in several key points from the description in the novel Fulgrim. --DetlefK 16:47, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I have no idea where it's been sourced, before I edited it reminded me of sections form the Visions of background books (I only have 2 of 3). I've only just finished reading Horus Rising so I have no idea if the infos correct.--Anoctris 05:55, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
