Greetings, and welcome to the Brotherhood of the Lost! As many of you know, of the original twenty legions to serve the Emperor in the Great Crusade, two have never been explained or explored, instead referred to the Lost Legions. Not content to leave a void in this intricate universe, many hobbyists have crafted their own Legions with imagination and creativity. Other talented writers and dreamers went a step further and crafted entirely new Heresies, such as the famed Dornian Heresy. Which brings us to this project, which started with this question: "What if the canon legions were replaced by Lost Legion projects?" Here we are, two years later, with eighteen new Legions that have led to a new conflict: the Icarion Insurrection.

 

Gone are the familiar names of Horus, Ultramarines, World Eaters, and Sanguinius. While a few familiar faces can be found here and there, new heroes and villains now struggle to control the fate of the galaxy. Within the link provided, anyone can read a a preview of our first rulebook: Insurrection. In its pages is an introduction to our universe, the struggles that foretold the incoming civil war, and six of the Legions destined to fight it. 

 

We hope everyone enjoys our work as much as we did in creating it!

I wanted to apologize because it has come to my attention that the link I provided was not working. Hopefully it is now. As a means of an apology, here are some images directly from the book.

This is pretty amazing work! I just had a brief skim.
So it's an alternative reality? Can't wait to dig in :-D

Very cool, I haven't really followed the BotL much, but from the pictures posted it looks like a lot of hard work has been put into it.  I'll definitely need to check this out.

I've had a deeper look. This is sterling work.

What brought the project about? The quality of writing is excellent :-D

Thank you for all of the encouragement!

 

To answer your question, Ishagu, it started one day when I was bouncing back and forth between the Special Projects and Age of Darkness forums. I noted that B&C hosted a large number of Lost Legion projects. So, I made a post sharing a whim I had about an AU that featured nothing but Lost Legion projects in lieu of the original eighteen Legions. To my surprise, people got really excited over it, and it took off from there.

This is very impressive! Haven't had time to read it all yet but will definitely do so.

 

Are there other similar fan-books for projects like the Dornian Heresy or the Corax Coup, or are you the first to try this?

Thank you! As far as I know, there isn't. The Dornian Heresy had art and index articles, but no books like we have.

Thank you for your feedback, guys!

 

We appreciate it and it means much, that our effort is enjoyable. :)

 

The Dornian Heresy had something similar, but it was more akin to the Badab War in terms of layout, etc.

 

This is the first one akin to FWs Horus Heresy books we all love. :)

 

If you want to know more about the team, the project and the setting itself, have a look on our subforum. Got questions? Don't hesitate to ask them in our General Discussions thread.

 

Further, we're on discord as well. :)

The Dornian Heresy absolutely had a book. I have it on my hard drive right now. It's not as high-production as this, but it is a wonderful tome.

Are there any ways to sill contribute to the project? Painting miniatures for photos, for example.

You can absolutely contribute to the project. We are constantly looking for new members to fill the world with life, paint miniatures or contribute with their ideas.

The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.

Is there somewhere on the B&C where that book can be uploaded? I'd like to take a gander at it too once I"ve finished this one!

 

EDIT: I have to add that the decision to switch Librarians at not-Nikeae was an awesome choice. It makes me think if in another not-heresy someone could do it again but with techmarines experimenting with AI.

My apologies then. I was ignorant of that fact. And to echo Mikhal, yes! We are more than happy to have more people join the project.

Thank you, Apologist! It's good to hear from you again.

Thank you! It was a natural evolution from our set of Primarchs. The BotL Librarius program achieved greater success, and its champions and architects were better respected. Thus, the Psyker issue, while remaining, never grew as virulent as it did in canon. Instead, we have several Primarchs who were far more willing to cross the line when it came to genetic experimentation. 

 

And that does sound like an interesting idea!
