    You mean if I were in command of a mythical army/empire in a mythical universe?

    Horus: Not lowered my shields when I already had won!

    Emperor: Not let such a pansy like Horus get so much power
    Split the legions up from the get go?

    always wondered why Horus dident do that...maybe cause he was straped for time...with the loyalist legions trying to get there, still a bombardment was in order, at least to destroy perimiter defences and (with some luck) breach a couple of walls)

    Id have launched a Counter offensive if i was the Impirial, they obviously still had acces to space if they could get to Horuses ship, Id have gathered all my fleet and Made a Breakthrought, directed as many guns upon horuses barge as possible, teleported Both BA, Impirial fists and the entire Custodes forec onboard, then headed straight to the engine room, set charges and telyported my ass back to the palace intime for tea.

    The Emporer transported as many men as he could to Horus' ship, they just ended up scattered all over. Only the 2 primarchs, the Emporer and a Terminator made it to the throne room. Let's all use the same account of what happened. The one I have used is this one. If anyone has a better acount please put it forward. As I see it, it would be far easier if everyone used the same acount(s).

    Anyway, Horus should not have let his shield down. He should have just bombarded whatever was left with every gun he had. Being a Space Marine player though, I'm glad Horus had the world's largest ego. And the lowest common sense.

    From an imperial point of view, was it the Thousand Sons that told the Emporer that Horus was turning evil? Then the Emporer excommunicated them because Horus was his favourite primarch, and he did not believe he could be evil. I think the Emporer should have opened his eyes, saw they were right (instead of creating an enemy) and eliminated Horus before he could become a problem.

    i know for sure that Eldrad Ultharn (the farseer guy) did warn the emperor about Horus's betrayal...i think the thousand sons did the same but im no sure on this one...

    keep em coming ppl!!! (even though it seems that everyone agrees that Horus did a BIG miatake in lowering his shields lol)

    The Rhousand Sons did try to warn to warn the Emperor, but he excommunicated them for using magic. Horus was stupid to lower his shields, and I would've sent a fleet to stop the loylist reinforcements.

    If i was Horus i would simply virus bombed terra.

    Im sure the primarchs and the emperor would have survived, maybe even the loyal marines (though i doubt it) but you would have wiped out all the imperial guard on the planet and that would have helped an awful lot. A few less billion soilders to deal with would have come in handy.

    Hell he could just have extermintus the damn planet. Okay that means he doesnt have terra to claim as his own but he would still own the rest of the galaxy.

    I agree that lowering the shields was stupid aswell.
