The Second. Expunged. by Noldofinve The Second. Expunged. by Noldofinve
"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?" (from D. Abnett's "Lightning Tower").

Yes, folks, this is it. The primarch of the Second Legion. Of course, his apperance is completely my "invention" because there are nor images of him nor more detailed information.

Here depicted is Akura, the Thunder Lord. A master pysker who is fabled to only be equal with his brother Magnus. However the two had their disagreements, both where on disagreements of how to use the warp. Eventually this came to ahead during the Dragon Wars when Akura allied with the traitor Aragon the Dragon King. After nearly a century of rebellion Akura retreated to his home world, far from the Imperuim. Only to find his rival awaiting him, Mortarion the Reaper.  The Emperor himself shunned Mortarion for torturing and eventually killing his brother Akura. The Second was never seen after wards, thought utterly slaughtered by the Death Guard however tales within the Death Guard speak that if the Emperor hadn't intervened the Second would be completely gone. Had he not intervened the last Company of the Second wouldn't have escaped. The Death Guard warned that if they weren't allowed to peruse they'd return, with the Last of the Thunder Born, Akura's daughter... 

Sorry, wanted to write something.

So did you think him to be turned by chaos or loyal? Im writing up a scenario for my Dark heresy where players will find a "lost System" In it will be one of the lost legions and ancient psyker impersonating the Emperor himself (By the Emperors own decree) to keep the system safe all records were expunged. The players are Blood ravens on long quest to discover their origin ^^ and stumbled onto this hidden system.
"The Emperors Decree" I call this chapter of a now 2 year long campain.

While searching for any fluff of 2nd legion I saw this and thought- hey cool, Im not the only one to find it irresistible to tamper with the "lost Legions"

I didn't think about fates of those two in details. We know only there was a tragedy so big that many years after nobody even spoke about it. Yet it was something other primarchs had to remember. I'd like to know (I hope once to read a novel about these two primarchs) what happened to them.
And I heard a theory that Blood Ravens are "scions" of Thousand Sons. One of my DA friends said it was mentiond in "Thousand Sons" by G. McNeill.

its not directly mentioned, but it is "written between the lines" -another theory is they share gene seed with the mysterious Gray knights (who also bolster many pzykers - whom are tattooed with hexogramatical wards using their pzyker gift to protect them only. )
whatever the case GW has clearly stared that the 2 legions are not mentioned on purpose so people can make their own in tabletop.

I doubt any fluff will ever be made on the lost primarks, the very point is to sitmulate peoples fantasy :D

Looks as awesome as the other primarchs. I notice that in all the tactics of the legions, there are none that focus on heavy weapons. Maybe that's the 2nd and 11th?

It's possible. Actually everything is possible about these two legions until GW won't make any stories about them.

In the Dawn Of War, apparently, they said that the Blood Ravens descended from one of the Unknown Primarchs.
Quoted from Davian Thule from Dark Crusade during the Space Marine Stronghold siege.

One of the lost chapters. If you look at the SM codex you'll see under the list of chapters that two are missing. With all the records on them purged from exsistance within the Imperium.

There is no fluff on these chapters, and If I recall correctly, that quote by Dan Abnett, as well as something in one of the Horus Heresy books is the only thing on those two chapters, and its only something small, and vague like that quote.

With the joy of Rick Priestley's infamous notes, he may well have written a full biography of every member of the legions in question, but he couldn't find or decipher the notes... From what I hear his notes are truly extensive, listing the whole history of Terra during the Dark Age and Age of Strife...

It's a wonderful, lost feeling you convey here; reflects well on the mix of humanity and superhumanity that are the primarchs.

Very interesting- he looks like some kind of psyker, with those tubes plugged into his head. Aside from the gorgeous shading (as always), it leave a lot to the imagination in terms of concept, which is good.
