Well I have chosen the dark angels the peice of text Im about to show you gave me a sort of shock because i didnt know this before. The Origins of the dark angels are shrouded in mystery.There are no records of its beginings nor any metion of its part in the emporers crusade. But why is it not mentioned, it is becasue of a dark past. The terrible secret is during the horus heresy some of the brethren were converted to the side of Chaos. The renegades were defeated in battle that destroyed the dark angels home world, Caliban, but many of the traitor Dark angels survived to be cast through space and time by the chaos gods. These survivors are known to the dark angels as 'The fallen'. In the eyes of the chapters leaders , there is only one way that the chapter can ever atone for their shame, restoring their honor and trust within the emporers eyes. That is if all the fallen are found and either made to repent or are slain. Anyways thats why I chose the dark angels
I want you to tell me who's chapter is the most mysterios.
Too many to name, honestly. Mysterious chapters in my mind include: (My explanations weren't sufficient so I took these snippets from Wiki)
The Exorcists: The Exorcists were founded in M36 some time before the Age of Apostasy. They were created through secret Inquisition experiments in which test subjects were deliberately allowed to be possessed by daemons for a time before the daemons were banished by daemon hunters. There were casualties, but the majority of test subjects survived and were versed in the ways of combating daemonkind. The test subjects, two companies strong (200 Space Marines) were released onto a daemon-infested planet where they displayed extremely impressive results.
Celestial Lions: The Celestial Lions were founded during the 38th millennium. Their armour is primarily gold, with blue shoulderpads and helmet. The chapter symbol is a roaring lion, and lion decorations are often incorporated into their armour. The Celestial Lions participated in the Third War for Armageddon, and were almost completely annihilated due to Inquistion treachery. (Supposedly the Inquisition assassinated their last remaining Apothecary during their heavy losses at the hands of the Orks, thus disallowing any gene-seed recovery. The fate of the 46 Celestial Lions survivors of the Armageddon War is not determined.)
Fire Hawks: One of the chapters created during the Cursed 21st Founding, from Ultramarines gene-seed. The Fire Hawks disappeared into the Warp during the 41st millennium, and were declared Lost in the Warp. Shortly after this, ghost Space Marines began to appear on various battlefields. These apparitions came to be known as the Legion of the Damned, 'fading' into existence to support beleaguered Imperial forces, and fading out again as soon as the battle was won.
Blood Ravens: The official history of this Chapter is kept in extreme secrecy. Perhaps it will finally be revealed in Dawn of War 2.
The list goes on... I just love the mythos behind the different chapters. Lost Primarchs, lost histories, treachery, etc...

Death_Korp_Of_KRIEG;3391470no it wont its 'lost forever'
Let me rephrase; The knowledge of the Blood Raven's past is kept in extreme secrecy by those who wouldn't be considered as 'reliable sources'.
i.e., all-seeing, all-knowing, higher-echelon servants of Chaos.
I did not mean to suggest that the Blood Ravens would know their mysterious past.

who do you think i am of course i know tht just a pimped krieg viechle sould look muddy and mostly cos i couldnt be stuffed making the exact same size ok? and i thought that you ment the blodd ravens new but i was wrong
Didn't say anything about the 'pimped' version. Just your strange use of a negative, that's all.
The Legion of The Damned originate from the disastrous Cursed 21st Founding of Space Marines. They were originally the chapter known as the "Fire Hawks", but en route their way to pacify a planet they became trapped in the Warp. They were stuck there for nearly twenty years, and in the warp they were subject to a plague that caused them hideous suffering. When they finally escaped from the warp the Chapter had been devastated. Most of them were gone and the survivors were no more than animated corpses, their flesh was gray and decaying and the suffering they endured had left them near insane and longing for release from the pain. However, they were still loyal servants of the Imperium and as such they were determined to give up what semblance of life they possesed for the Emperor. They abolished all ranks, as they were all equal in death. They decorated their armour with symbols of cheerlessly grinning skulls and souls writhing in the flames of purgatory. They no longer considered themselves Fire Hawks; they were now simply the Legion of the Damned. Obsessed with their fate, they do not fear death; indeed, they seek little else.

How did you just say that you gave little information on the chapter but I then followed it up and gave a deeper briefing on the chapter. And please spam somewhere else.

the things you just said are from Wiki. Legion of the Damned has to be much more mysterious than dark angel, consider they do not even have a codex or set of rule. I do not understand why GW don't make Iquistor-sized Primarchs, they would make so much money off of it considering they are demanded and only around $20
