Soo.. Loyalist marines from traitor legions, the list so far of confirmed are:
Thousand sons- Blood ravens
Emperors children- Red scorpions
World eaters- Minotaurs
Death guard- Sons of Antaeus
Iron warriors- Silver skulls
Alpha legion- Alpha legion
Night lords- Space Sharks
Word bearers- ?
Sons of Horus- ?

Any body know who could for-fill the last two roles? or would anyone like to generate a couple of legions to fill the gaps

Yeah, no.

The Blood Ravens were theorised as maybe coming from the Thousand Sons by /tg/.

The Space Sharks/Charcaradons are thought to maybe come from the Raven Guard.

I don't think any of those are actually confirmed. A few re very likely, based on hints within the lore. the Blood Ravens have all but been confirmed and the Minotaurs seem likely, but the others are just /tg/ conjecture.

Plus it's explicitly stated that the Charcaradons are made up of a Terran branch of the Raven Guard that Corax didn't much like and so sent off to the opposite side of the galaxy.

Ravens being thousand sons are the only ones that are all but confirmed, unless you're as rectally rustled as Carnac or ADB over it, but nobody gives a fuck about them.

He thinks it's dumb. Didn't he try to stop some mention of a "bloody raven" going into a HH book?

He also wrote a big chunk of World Eaters backstory to retcon the "Space Wolves killed the Lost Legions" thing, so I think the dude just hates the idea of "canon" answers to things explicitly created as Mysteries For The Ages. And I kind of agree with him.

Betrayer. He had the Space Wolves get in a big fight with the World Eaters in the backstory so that "We've killed other Astartes before" could refer to something other than killing the Lost Legions.

>> No.50233753

Ah, sorry about that. No, the Thousand Sons were a first founding Legion, supposedly named such because of problems with their geneseed which at one point left only a thousand battle brothers.

There have been many loyalist chapter foundings since and of these a founding of several chapters that has since come to be known as the 'Cursed Founding' because all of the chapters created in the founding have all suffered some defect in their geneseed, turned traitor, been lost in the warp etc.

>> No.50233782

He doesn't like things that make the 40k universe feel smaller. Making connections just for the sake of making connections being one of the top ways. The example he always brings up is having Anakin Skywalker being the one who built C-3PO, and in 40k, having Perturabo's top commanders all being the exact same marines who are the main characters in McNeil's Iron Warriors novels.

>> No.50233797

BR are "hinted" to be TS descendants in the Horus Heresy books so heavily they might as well print it in foot-high letters and yell it in your face.

You're right about the other ones, though. Charcaradons are explicitly stated to be Raven Guard successors, and Sons of Antaeus are rumoured to maybe be created using DG geneseed (the cursed and dark foundings have a lot of rumours associated with them, including the possibility of the Mechanicus experimenting with the traitor legion geneseed they still have in storage), but nothing has been confirmed beyond drawing comparisons between the resilience of the chapter and Death Guard.

>Not Loyal

Red Scorpions are, from memory, implied to be Emperor's Children partly because their gene-seed is even purer than Ultrasmurf gene-seed (for which the candidates were basically just the Emperor's Children), partly because they're obsessed with perfection and purity, and partly because their intense Codex compliance is kind of like how the III Legion used to fight pre-Heresy.

None of OP has had it confirmed though. It's just theories and implication, albeit some pretty damn strong implication in the case of the Blood Ravens.

I could buy Storm Wardens as World Eaters though, and Silver Skulls as Iron Warriors. But there's no real proof of either.

>> No.50234373

The problem with the Storm Wardens theory is we know the reason why their lineage was concealed. Prior to the Nemesis Incident their lineage was open to anyone. A traitor-descended chapter would have their lineage hidden from inception.

I think the Sons of Antaeus (only Cursed founding chapter to be ignored dammit, gimme some giant unkillable marines GW!) were also implied to be DG with their rules back in the day, which gave them the same T bonus as DG, or something like that. Again, not sure at all, been ages.

>> No.50235349

Night Lords also have extremely pure gene seed.

>> No.50235389


Silver Skulls seem to be descended from an Iron Warrior captain who basically grafted a molten metal mask around his head, worked closely with the Ultras, and save TWO Primarch's asses from Curze during the Ruinstorm using a weird alien divination machine. Silver Skulls are considered odd because while the staunchly claim Ultra stock, they don't seem related, and they place a heavy emphasis on divination. Also, a Silver Skull like their founder.

Minotaurs and Blood Ravens are confirmed in all but straight statement, though. Well, actually, Minotaurs ARE confirmed in a straight statement from their creator. Blood Ravens have enough behind them that you'd be stupid to think they are anything but 1kSons descendants.

Red Scorpions might as well be Luna Wolves or Night Lords, but so far there's not much to suggest any progenitor, not much more than simple supposition, anyway. I'd pull for Luna Wolves because they have an especially potent geneseed, mirroring the PURE ALWAYS SUPER PURE doctrine of the RS. Of course, the Death Eagles are confirmed EC descendants, if you want to check those out.

Storm Wardens are an odd case because >>50234490. Seems they just forgot, but before it seemed open to the public.

As far as I know, Alpha Legion, Night Lords, Word Bearers, and Sons of Horus/Luna Wolves have no known loyalist successors, although I might be missing a fluff blurb here or there.


Back in Chapter Approved, yes. They were implied, but fucking almost everything in the Cursed Founding is some form of Chimera. The text from the 21st Founding research base suggests they have some kind of entirely unheard-of geneseed makeup, with organs no one's even seen before, and bony plates like fuck armoring their internals.

>> No.50235398

Of those, only Silver Skulls are correct.

Laurie Goulding, may he shut up please, has said that the Blood Ravens were never a part of the Thousand Sons/DoW is not canon.

No confirmation between EC and RC.

Minotaurs use IW geneseed, but are not IW.

Sons of Antaeus are Cursed Founding and likely do not use true DG geneseed

Silver Skulls are a mix of IW and UM.

Space Sharks are the remnants of the exiled Pale Nomads, the Terran Raven Guard that Corax found too Brutal.

No loyal Word Bearers, Lorgar killed them all.

Dunno about SoH though.

I think you're mistaking "purest" with "one with the best acceptation rates" which is definitely not the same thing. IW were known to be prone to paranoia, have trust issues, and be very grim 24/7, so not exactly the purest.

Again, Relic doesn't have the authority to do anything with the lore. They are just a third party company. They cannot reveal anything or invent anything without GW telling them to.

And they threw out the DoW novels because GW/BL threw them out first. If GW wanted the Blood Ravens to be an Ultramarine successor, then there is nothing Relic or the fans can do about it. They are guys with the IP.

>> No.50235960

>they can do nothing about it.
>what is the entire space marines campaign.
They opened up their own continuity rather than deal with GW's bullshit, people who have been introduced to the blood ravens via DoW, will continue to use it as their primary source because it is far more consistent than GW's books.

>> No.50235965


Thousand Sons is actually one of the better ones. But you have to remember to approach everything about Horus Heresy with distance. It's a tale of myth and legend, don't look for more logic in it than you would look in the old testament.

>> No.50236024

>They opened up their own continuity

By GW's permission. If GW wanted, it will pull the IP licence and Relic will be as screwed as FFG.

And GW is making a move to consolidate the the Blood Raven game lore into the proper canon via novels and the new WD article. So...there would be any other continuity.

yeah, wonder how they will fit space marines into that.
GW shoving it's IP dick into everything does nothing if there is no market for it. If GW pull's it's IP randomly SEGA will sue their asses into the saxon invasion of england. GW at the most can advise Relic on how certain factions work, and relic can be free to disregard those. See what CA did by hiring an ex GW employee to be their lore guy and changing parts of the lore to better fit their game.

Carcharodons are getting rewritten to be half Raven Guard half Night Lords because a higher up (read: LJG) didn't like how FW made them RG. He liked the NL option better. So he ordered the Carcharodons novel made to inject "mystery" and "twists" into them.

Maybe. They do have more pure geneseed then the Ultramarines and their successors and the only Primarch who had more pure geneseed then Guilliman was Fulgrim.
>World eaters- Minotaurs
If they are descended from traitors it's probably Iron Warriors. They're tactics match and the IW were from a planet called Olympia for crying outloud. A successor chapter named after a monster in Greek legends makes sense
>Death guard- Sons of Antaeus
Maybe. Theyre probably a chimeric chapter composed of different strains of geneseed. Maybe Death Guard is part of it.
>Iron warriors- Silver skulls
Same as Blood Ravens. Everything points towards them being loyalist Iron Warriors.

Also as said Ahriman could easily have just been fucking with the guy, he was trying to convert him to his side.

>> No.50241210

Of all the traitor legions, Iron Warriors had possibly one of the largest portion remain loyal to the Emperor rather than their primarch and survive beyond the events at Isstvaan.

One such Warsmith, Dantioch, was well favoured by Girlyman, the Lion and others, and he just so happened to wear a silver skull mask. It is not inconceivable that such remnants were bundled into one or more of the newly formed Chapters in the aftermath of the Heresy
