terraluna5.deviantart.com provided a lot of the cannon for the 2nd in my project. I had an idea for a crossover with a Miyazaki film. Nausicaa of the Valley of the wind. Started that then I go involved with his Two Worlds Collide Fanfiction. And that man pulled out a lot of stops for me. And I am grateful. And well now I have a slew of ideas that are in need of talking with him.

Is the lighting bears primarch Icarion?

There were two fan ideas I remember reading. One was basically the Primarch wasn't willing to go along with all the wanton human slaughter, willing to play live-and-let-live with totally self seficiant human colonies that don't want anything to do with the Imperium. Meh. 

The second was that the Geneseed quirk made the Primarch and all his Marines into soulless Pariahs. And Lorgar, Magnus and the others simply thought there were abominations. And that's actually kinda' interesting.

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. I could easily see this as part of a "The Lost & The Forgotten" Horus Heresy Rulebook. Athrawes's Lightning Bearers have been my definitive headcanon for the 2nd Legion since the day I first read through his stuff and you've really brought them to life here. :)

Thank you.I'll Try to do something from this Legion again)

Ooh please do, maybe a picture of one of the Volta, the Legion's blind gunslinging Terminator elite who "see" via divination? That would be so awesome! :D
Ilqar's avatar
Good idea)Maybe author of this legion would like to see him in my representationWink/Razz

I reckon Athrawes would be delighted to see more of his legion brought forth by your hand, he's already featured this piece in his army thread on the Bolter & Chainsword, it's how I found you: www.bolterandchainsword.com/to…
