Horus and later his 1st lieutenant Abaddon chose to not become deamon princes, although they could have become whenever they wanted.
Oh, and as said above: Wiipedia is NOT the most reliable source of informations about the 40k universe, go check the real source being GW and its multiple websites containing all official infos and storylines one is looking for.
Is it true that Abbadon(my avatar) was Horus' clone?? And I didnt get my source from wikipedia that daemon prince at the end was Toth, it was from the book if you read it. Its a shame that they didnt turn too daemon prince's, Horus would be able to impact much more damage to The Emperor, thats what I think. Because in his normal form Emperor would have easily killed him, its just that he didnt want to kill his son, otherwise Horus would have been killed the first second he challenged The Emperor, but I think if he was a Daemon Prince that would not be so true. Another question: Once you become a Daemon Prince, is it reversable? Can you turn back to your normal form?
its romured to be his genetic son, yes. and i heard from some gw staff that fantasy are in the same time perioed, its just neither inteact (eg zoats, part of the hive fleet, could be used in both fantasy and 40k...)
well, basically, all space marines of the 20 Legions are the genetical sons of their Primarch... They're humans enhanced with their primarch's genes.
Abbaddon was already Horus' favorite captain, his favorite "son" even, during the Greate Crusade and Abbaddon stood on Horus' side till his "father" got killed. Abbaddon brought the broken body of Horus with him into the Eye of Terror. But as other renegade legions tryed to steal the corpse and even managed to clone Horus, Abbaddon destroyed everything from him (including the clone).
(This information is to prevent confusion between Abbaddon and the Clone of Horus).
As for the Deamon Prince, just play the DoW basic campaign till the end and you shall see: it's Sindri who turns into a Deamon Prince
hmm... shouldnt that make abbadon the emporers grtandson?
it does, and so are all other renegade marines.
The Heresy was the most terrible act of Treason known to men: former brethren killed each others and slaughtered thousands in their struggle for supremacy
All Space Marines, Chaos Marines, and Primarchs are the sons of the Emperor. Even though they are Chaos and wish to ravage the Imperium and all that jazz that I dont feel like typing. So here comes a brief overview of the Horus Heresy for all of those that are interested. The Horus Heresy was the single greatest act of betrayel ever to happen. Fully half of the Space Marine Legions turned to Chaos and followed Horus. The Imperial Navy, Imperial Guard, and Titan Legions fought each other on millions of worlds all across the Imperium. Thousands of worlds burned in the name of the Dark Gods. The traitors went straight for the head of the Imperium, Holy Terra itself. Horus lead his forces to Terra, one of the fallen Primarchs(which one I dont know), approached the Golden Palace and adressed its defenders. He told them that if they turned against their father that their lives would be spared, and they would be granted powers beyond imagining. The brothers of the mighty Blood Angels said nothing, Sanguinus himself stood defient. A short time passed before returning to his lines, as soon as his forces inveloped him, the siege of the Golden Palace began. The Siege of the Golden Palace lasted a long time as brother marine slew brother marine. The Blood Angels stood as a beacon of hope in a see of chaos. But it was inevitable, the Blood Angels were slowly being pushed back. It came to a point where the Blood Angels fell back into the Golden Place itself. Sanguinus held the mighty doors to the palace while his brothers feel back. That is when it came, a Blood Thirster of Khorne, attacked Sanguinus. The battle seemed to stop as all eyes turned to the titanic battle. Sanguinus, weak with having fought non stop was struck down. He rebounded and broke the Blood Thirsters back over his knee. Sanguinus was the last through the doors to the palace. The Emperor sensing that the end was near took some of his most trusted warriors, including Sanguinus to Horus's battle barge. From the start the group was scattered, the Emperor found himself alone, and made his way to Horus's chambers. He arrived just in time to see Sanguinus struck down, his beautiful body cast down at Horus's feet. Outraged, the Emperor and Horus fought. Each was wounded gravly. Horus moved in for the killing blow, but was stopped as a single Terminator came into the chamber, his Storm Bolter blazing. Horus struck the Terminator down with but a look. This was the catalyst that the Emperor needed, rendered immobile, the Emperor gathered his last ounces of strength into a mighty psychic blast. The Emperor let lose as Horus turned back to him. The blast struck Horus hard, driving the Chaos powers from his body. In the last seconds before Horus died, the Emperor saw this, but continued with the attack anyways, knowing that the Runious Powers would take Horus over again. Regal Dorn, primarch of the Imperial Fists was the one who found The Emperor, cast down and broken. The Emperor knowing that death was near rattled out the plans to the Golden Throne. And so its has come, his dream shattered, The Emperor has spent the last ten millenia entombed in the Golden Throne, standing watch over teh Imperium and acting as a becon of hope. Iight thats it, a little artistic lisencing taken there. I am not to sure about the Rogal Dorn part but I am 80% sure about that, if I am wrong please correct me. -Unforgiven-
Yes, yes I know all about the Horus Heresy. I have to admit, the Emperor has ALOT of Grandkids, and alot of kids. Where did you find the information on the battle between Horus and the Emperor?
don't forget that, besides the Blood Angels, there were other legions defending Terra and the palace: the Imperial Fists lead by Rogal Dorn and the White Scars, lead by Jagathaï Khan.
The info about the battle was in one of the older WD and has always been part of the 40k fluff... well not always: in the early stages of the tabletop game you were actually fighting during the Heresy, Space Marines (1st epic system) was based on battles during the Heresy where Marines fought Marines and Titans faced Titans...
you can get all this information from wikipedia too, its exactly the same as he told. And you are right about the rogal dorn part..he found the emperor wounded-100% right. The warriors that the emperor took with him included Sangious,and Rogal Dorn too - I thought those were the only 2 ppl he took with him...I guess there must have been couple marines.
