It's pretty much been confirmed in two of the Horus Heresy books that the Blood Ravens were founded by a loyalist group of Thousand Sons who were still traversing the Warp when Leman Russ buttfucked Prospero.

In "A Thousand Sons" there are tons of references to Ravens with drops of blood on them as Magnus and Ahriman see glimpses of the future.

And in the short story in "Age of Darkness" a group of loyalist Thousand Sons land on Prospero to see wtf happened, only to be ambushed by That Swell Guy and his fellow World Eaters. Basically the entire landing party dies save for one Sergeant who's company heraldry is a Raven and appears to turn "blood red" as he walks into the shadows and swears to undo the wrongs done by his primarch and the other traitors, clearing the Thousand Son's name for the Emperor.

The sergeant also says "Knowledge is power" at the end of the book. "Knowledge is power, guard it well" is the Blood Magpies mantra. Also both Sons and Ravens are heavily pysker populated, have freakin librarians for chapter masters, both have gold and red and Ravens for chapter symbols. Ahriman's company, the corvadiae used a raven for their company symbol.

>> No.17737682

The novels are about as applicable to Blood Ravens canon as Rogue Trader is to the Ultramarines canon. Tarkus evidently was a zombie through Chaos Rising, the toxin wasn't administered on Typhon, and other hilarity.

Also, are we really letting C.S. "Multilaser" Goto dictate the fluff? Chaos Rising and Retribution, the most recent Blood Magpie fluff, have the Black Legion and Abaddon connected to the Chapter, and not just because Kyras was a dirty hairetic.

Besides, doesn't the Chapter's arrogance and tendency to fall because of blind obedience and their belief they're strong enough to use Chaos fit the Lunar Wolves?

>> No.17737743

Except that after the jig is up and the Chapter is all but destroyed and practically targeted for Inquisition cleansing, he still wants them, "body and soul".

Assuming he's not just an idiot, the only reason that makes sense is if they ARE Black Legion in a very real sense. Another Chaos Warmaster wouldn't be a threat to him, a Chaos Warmaster with some of the Black legion at his beck and call? That would be a challenge to his role as Warmaster of the Black legion.

Blood Ravens lash out at the Black Legion at every opportunity, ( Perhaps in revenge for Horus tricking Russ into annihilating the Thousand Sons)

Also if Abaddon knows they are 1ksons, he's said before all Traitor marines belong to him. He wants what he is owed.

>> No.17737753


Because there is no evidence connecting the Luna Wolves and Blood Ravens in the Heresy.

The Black Legion is only featured in the most recent Dawn of Wars because they are the most sellable Chaos Chapter and Failabaddon is Chaos's poster boy. The Black Legion has "the best of everything" so they are the easiest chapter to make a variety of units for in a game.

Also, Abbadon is obsessed with corrupting ANY AND ALL SPHESS MAREHENZ, not just the Blood Magpies in particular. Furthermore, the Luna Wolves were never notable psykers. 90% of the sorcerers in the BL are former Thousand Sons.

My favorite chapter is the Imperial Fists. Why may you ask? Well because...

-During the Horus heresy it was primarily their defense that saved Holy Terra.
-Their Chapter recruits from Terra itself, they are literally earth's space marines
-Rogal Dorn is kick ass
-Their chapter is based of the very first game with space marines (Space Hulk; We are the mailed fist of the emperor battle cry.)
-they look like golden warriors if the proper yellow is painted

I also think they are better in fighting spirit and skill then the smurfs (again because of the Horus heresy as they were outnumbered and outgunned).

Black Templars are one of the few chapters that can fit perfectly in a chaotic universe as that of warhammer 40k.
Eternal war and genocide is what it takes to live up in this universe and they do it succesfully being the biggest and the most effective chapter out there. Of all the Imperial forces, they are the ones trully at home in this world of constant warfare.

>> No.17737828

The real problem is that Thousand Sons were defective retards. Making Blood Ravens have Thousand Sons lineage makes them all defective retards as well.

And it doesn't fit in-universe, of course. You might as well say they're Blood Angel descendents because they have lots of ornate equipment and red and gold armour.

Ahriman found a cure for the flesh change in his rubric. The flesh curse was originally just a part of Tzeentch's dickery when he made a deal with Magnus and further pushed him to side with chaos. Blood Magpies still seem to be very susceptible to Chaos taint, especially if they are librarians or have a strong connection to the warp.

Also, the story that is forming this connection in the heresy books is only just starting. More than likely there will be some shit about the emperor or the most powerful remaining 1kson loyalist "curing" any flesh curse still in them.

>> No.17737979

That was fixed by Magnus when the legion was being formed, though he only managed to save 1000 of his legion (hence the name, 'Thousand Sons'). Or if you're referring to the mutations caused by Chaos, that could be explained by the Thousand Sons being on a ship far away from Prospero when it was attacked by the Space Wolves. Thus, they were never teleported to Planet of the Sorcerers in the Eye of Terror with the rest of their legion.

And it is implied that they went to found the Inquisition. But these same Marines also went unadorned to avoid any further connection to their former Legion. The Death Guard DID have colors and coats of arms, not just uncolored ceramite. The Grey Knights aren't just that either, not at all. They are exceptionally ornate.

Just because they are Marines and the Grey Knight are Marines, and both are associated with the Inquisition, doesn't mean that they became the Grey Knights. For one thing, they have nothing at all in common, and the Grey Knights are described as being unchanged since their founding.
