The legion of the damed are they a second founding of one of the legions or are they one of the two missing legions where exactly do the come from aka Anyone got fluff on the legion of the damned
Remeber men, we are fighting for the ladies honour, which is a damsite more than she did
In the old Wh40k Rouge Trader (some WD articles) the Legion of the Damned was shown just as a normal chapter.
In the 2nd edition it became something like a chapter made of ghosts of space marines who appeared to help other chapter in battle when the situation was desperate.
The Fire Hawks appeared separetly in a short note about their disappearance after a warp jump.
In the 3rd edition the two stories were mixed (lack of fantasy by GW writers...).
Basically the fluff on the Legion of the Damned are that the entire Fire Hawks legion was lost in the warp. And now for some reason they appear out of nowhere very rarely when the forces of the Imperium are getting pounded to turn the tide of battle... But bullets have a nasty habit of passing through them like air, and they fade out like ghosts when theyve done what they came to do.
They make Legion of the Damned models still, but not many people use them. Theyre more like the Necrons used to be, just a special event army. I wouldn't hold my breath for them to get their own codex and expanded range like the Necrons did though... I think that most players consider them to be kind of lame..
I liked the 2nd edition fluff the best, where they were actually dead. The article in the White Dwarf where they kill the tech because he works out that a wounded Marine has no vital signs was kind of fitting. And the sergeant special character was a hardcase too.
so one of those two missing legions was the "Fire Hawks"?
if so then why is it that in EVERY legio list printed there are always 2 that have had their record corrupted or deleted by some unknown source? it really bugs me
