"Your fanaticism shall be your undoing" Wise words spoken by the divine Sun Lord, or the Emperor of Mankind as he is known to the majority of his empire.
I sit here, watching my world burn, and await the end. Men lay dead everywhere the eye can see; once beautiful temples and altars have become grim reminders of a stubborn clinging to the past traditions.
Flames rage everywhere and all manners of psychic explosions boom overhead. A giant seam ripped open in the sky, opening the way for the host that we unknowingly summoned to begin it's crusade of the material world.
My remaining time is almost up, my twin hearts over burdened with grief and regret. I had forfeited the lives of thousands of men with my ignorance, blindly following an archaic and flawed faith. A whole world set a blaze, awaiting destruction from massive orbital bombardment from the mighty vessels of my brothers.
I can only hope that my brethren see the errors I have made and learned from them. The beasts of the immaterium are uncontrollable and will only bring our plane of existence to an end.
My time is nigh, I feel the failure of one of my twin hearts, the other surely not far off. I know that the memory of my people, and by extension my legion, will be lost and forgotten to history; a fate worse than death. But alas, a fate I deserve. Sometimes it is good to be forgotten.

This is my venture into to era of the legendary space marine legions. I was inspired to start this project by the amazing work done by Athrawes.
I will likely draw themes from the Major Arcana of the primarchs in the project and add (or delete) details as necessary.
I really want to make the legion conform to the Great Crusade era and not be overpowered, and eventually meet their demise and become erased from history.
As such, I look forward to any and all criticism and suggestions.
