Before the heresy they were sent back to Terra to construct/fortify the Emperors palace I believe, because they were so good as siege specialists. So it says in the HH books (Horus Rising I think). No idea what part of the galaxy they were responsible for though.

If I remember right, (and that's a big if), Sigismund and a large part of the Imperial Fists Fleet was sent to the Istvaan system to find out if the story of Horus' betrayal was true or not. Rogal Dorn never told him to engage if he found out it was true. We don't know what happened to that fleet (yet). Rogal Dorn and the Fists' mighty fortress-warship Phalanx returned to Earth to bolster the Imperial Palace's defences after setting them on their way.

As far as where they went in the Great Crusade remains a mystery.
Current Armies:
1st, 4th, 8th, and 10th Company, Imperial Fists, Adeptus Astartes
E Company, 182nd Cadian Air Assault Regiment
1st Company, 10th Cadian Armored Regiment

I'm guessing they split like just about every other Legion-Horus himself only had around 6-7 companies with him, as had Fulgrim, and Ferrus only had the Morlocks.

In Inquisitor, a Space Marine can take a krak grenade, pull out the pin, eat the grenade, throw the pin, and the thrown pin will actually kill a normal man, whereas the Space Marine won't even have indigestion.

If it takes more than 20 bolter rounds to take something down, maybe you should leave it alone...

They were ambushed by the Iron Warriors in the Calth system if I remember correctly though what exactly happened here is murky at best and I don't think there has been much canon other than it being the first real clash between these future sworn enemies. I would guess that they broke out of the ambush and made way for Terra as Sigismund was at the siege.

"I remember the day. The day the sky burned as the Dead Emperor's pet butchers descended on Old Badab to tear down all that we had built in His own name. It was in the final hours of that day that I scourged the wings from my breastplate forever. I remember the day. I remember, and so will they."

When reading the IA: Imperial Fists article you find that Rogal Dorn was in charge of the Imperial Defence of the Emperors Palace during the Seige of Terra and that he was the one to find the Wounded Emperor after his smack down with horus

After this he went into a fit of rage and despair and took what was left of the Legion on a killing spree taking out any and all who opposed the Imperial Rule until the Iron Cage where they went in an depending on who's point of view you believe Won (The Imperial Fists version and therefore what really happened) or the Iron Warriors version in which the only reason that the Fists weren't destroyed was the intervention of the Ultramarines (This of course being a load of rubish and not to be trusted as it is the word of proven heretics)

I quite possibly have the name confused, but I definitely remember reading something about IW ambushing the IF fleet that was sent to Istvaan. Then again this was from the beginning to 3rd edition so it might have been retconned, forgotten, or just a piece of ranting by one of the IW fanboy former game designers like Andy Chambers or Pete Haines.

Rain-it's in the artbooks and in FotE as well, I think the name of the system started with P, but that's all I can remember about it

I'm pretty certain it was Triplex Phall (home of a certain version of Lasguns)
i hate to break it to you chaps, but according to the English Language a Chevron is a V shape, if your 'Chevrons' are not V shaped then they are just hazard stripes NOT Chevrons

Horus killed Sanguinius so hard that his entire chapter feels it forever..

Art books? Now I'm really confused, I must have read something that I later got confused with something else I read, eh forget it, point is the Iron Warriors fight the Imperial Fists a lot. There, there's what I was getting at.

"I remember the day. The day the sky burned as the Dead Emperor's pet butchers descended on Old Badab to tear down all that we had built in His own name. It was in the final hours of that day that I scourged the wings from my breastplate forever. I remember the day. I remember, and so will they."

Collected Visions page 342-343, Dorn dispatched a force of 30,000 Imperial Fists to reinforce the loyalists on Istvan III, the fleet was unable to proceed and lost contact with Terra due to intense warp storms and was forced to seek solace in the Phall system (my bad, it was home to two agri-worlds, so evidently not the same as Triplex Phall) where they were later attacked by a slightly larger Iron Warrior fleet under the command of Perturabo.
