I believe going through the Rubicon does replace missing parts? In Spears of the Emperor it was used to rebuild the destroyed body of an Astartes Captain.

Marneus was indeed missing all 4 of his limbs, I suspect they are back now.

 

His body was cut up, it wasn't dismembered. He still had everything where it should be. It brought him back to being functional, it absolutely didn't regrow any missing limbs.


"And then Horus landed on the Moon, which looked like the moon. Funny that, isn't it?"


You're hired.

IIRC, that's a retcon.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Sorry for being unclear, I'm talking about the Captain in Spear of the Emperor, not Calgar.

 

EDIT: In other words, we've not been given any clarification about what Calgar's body is like under his armor, but the Captain in Spears didn't have anything to grow back, so he's not proof of this occurring at all.

Calgar only lost his limbs in Rogue Trader, it just got conflated with him getting beat up by the Swarmlord for some reason.

Vigilus Ablaze described him being cut open from crown to heel while under going the Primaris surgery.
