Does anyone think they could throw Ollanius Pius back into the universe, perhaps a story of him confronting horus and forgiving him.

The unlikely hero standing up to the BBEG against all odds, because good is worth fighting for.

I want to come up with some Imperial Guard culture, stuff that gets around the veterans that the rookies won't know.

Top of the list is going to be Ollanius Pius of course- with how muddled the background is by GW, I think it'd be fair that it'd be a common myth among IG that there was a mere human that saved the Emperor, and that while not frowned upon, certainly isn't given official sponsorship.

Any ideas?

Ollius Pius was originally the anonymous man who stood up to Horus. Horus' brutal murder of him is what convinced the Emperor. An ordinary man rather than a super soldier Custodes standing up to pure evil is a much better story, it also makes Horus look much more sinister. He was removed from the cannon and replaced with an anonymous crimson fist and then a custodes, however he is still a saint in the cannon.

You can read more about him at these two links

http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Olnius_Pius#.URLoRR2ukxl

http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ollanius_Pius

I am thinking about creating a petition to have him put back into the cannon. I know GW probably won't listen no matter how many signatures it has, but at least it would spread his story.

Where should I start a formal petition online and what would be good Warhammer 40k communities to share it with and gain support?

Thanks /tg/

>Preparing myself for hour long rant as to why this is rage face is justified
You want to know why I hate the Loyalists? They're a bunch of mindless husks who follow every order to the letter. They feel no emotion. They hate everything that isn't human. They're the biggest racists in the fucking universe. The sad part is Brady, is that that's how we essentially are now. So few travel off that path of becoming mindless robots that we might as well be a mindless robot. Originality is dead, and i'm not okay with that. Space Marines don't think for themselves, they'd die for their 'Emperor' without a though. What has he done for them? A shit ton of nothing, that's what. You wana know why I love 40k so much, Brady? It's because it shows the human race as it really is, a despicable, gross thing. But there is always a little diamond in all that mud. Remember that

LOOK AT THIS FUCKING GUARDSMAN.

He's spent months fighting a grueling war in which his enemies are demigods allied with daemons, and now he's found himself in the closest thing to Hell he's ever known. He probably wasn't even supposed to get teleported up to the arch-traitor's battle barge in the first place, and just ended up in the wrong place at the worst possible time.

Somehow he's survived horrors beyond comprehension to make his way to the very bridge of Horus' flagship. He saw a veritable angel call upon Horus to answer for his crimes, and he saw that angel die as messily as any guardsman. His Emperor - who he fervently believes is a god incarnate, even if he's not supposed to - lies mortally wounded, and Horus, perhaps, has taken a moment to gloat before he strikes the killing blow.

His armor is slightly more effective than tissue paper, his weapon is slightly more powerful than a flashlight, and Horus' power claw is bigger than his entire body. He stands before a being infused by the dark gods' with incalculable power, that can and will obliterate his soul with no more effort than it would take him to swat a gnat. Nothing he can do could possibly make a difference.

He could run. He could turn his weapon on himself. He could give in to the insidious whispers that echo from the ship's corridors into his mind.

Ollanius Pius does the duty his Emperor requires of him. He dies standing and holds the fucking line.

He stands
Feeling no fear
With but a simple Lasgun in hand
To the demi-god he draws near

He cannot win, this he knows
Still he stands, with courage in his heart
He looks over, his Emperor in death throes
He looks back, and knows what he must do

'For the Emperor!' He shouts
With a single thought, he is taken out

He gave his Emperor time
The ultimate sacrifice
He held the line

I seem to recall it being a Guardsman standing up to Horus that finally convinced the Emperor to strike down his fallen Insanely Powerful Space Marine child. Because a normal man had the Balls to stand him to someone who, even if he was NOT a crazy Chaos Demigod, would have crushed him like an ant.

[Music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZXpo2WFbXA ]

Pius stood before Horus,
with his las clutched in his hand.
He was only a man
But he knew someone must take a stand.

There will always be a battle
but remember our Lord's grace.
there will always be perilous dangers
which someone must face.

Hello /tg/.

I'm currently working my way through the Audiobook of Know No Fear, which has Ollanius Pius as one of the characters.

I know that Oll is no ordinary human, and appears to be pretty much immortal. However, in one scene he makes a reference to bayonet fighting/trench warfare, and says that he was taught how to do it at Verdun ?

Is it just me, or is Abnett pretty much saying that Ollanius was at the Battle of Verdun in WW1? Or am I hearing it wrong? I know theres some stuff on 1d4chan, but I'd like some other points of view.

IG hero thread I suppose.

So it took one guardsmen to convince the Emperor that his favoured son was past the point of redemption, instead of the dead primarch that laid at his feet and the dozens of Custodian bodies scattered all over the place?
