Default Compiling all information on the lost primarchs!

I'm starting a little bit of a project, and heres what I've gathered

1. A lost primarch is most likely named Rubineck
2. Malleus by Dan Abnett, page 89 "...the Primarch of the White Counsuls..."
3. Lupercal is not one of them and is infact another name for horus.
4. In one book\story horus goes back in time and smashes primarch 2's gene tank thingy.

Those are the only 4 peices of information ever thought to be real.

What do you mean by "lost"?

And I'm not emo. Yeah, every tuesday and thursday the only thing not black is my red t-shirt. Black pants, black shoes, formerly black trenchcoat (not for the matrix but I like people afraid of what I had under it, trenchcoat mafia 8)) now black leather jacket and mirrored stunner shades.

Pardon my ignorance but why the bit on black clothing???

Lost primarchs as in the 2 missing from the records. We have 9 Loyalist and 9 Chaos Primarchs but thats only 18 and there are supposedly 20.

Now the fluff is really non-existant. From what I have heard it was a legal issue with copyrwritten material that GW infringed on too closely and had to drop 2 of the Primarch/legion names and so just errased their mistake and left no fluff reason for it. Not that their fluff reasons are great anyway, I mean look at the squats.

There are a lot of speculations but really no facts. There used to be an idea that Sigmar was a Primarch from the Warhammer Fantasy game when it was supposedly located in the Eye of Terror but that is now totally discredited by GW.

The clothes bit was from his sig. Just a random rant from me. Forgive MY ignorance but who are the 18 known ones. I know the usual Gulliman-Ultramarines, Manus-Iron Hands, Magnus-Thosands Sons, The Night Haunter-Night Lords, Dorn-Imperial Fists, Sanguineus-Blood Angels... Oh never mind. I found it in my Codex. I bet if we get a nerd or something he could recreate the blurs. The first box of blur 2 looks like Sandea Waerson. I know it isn't but I think if a nerd could scan it or something and then move each pixel of text until it lines up with th rest then we will have our missing chapters and primarchs.

The blurs are just random. They could be unpixelated (if that's a word) into any word. Just like television nudity, can be pixilated into anything like for example: Mount Rushmor in the US or the Eiffel Tower....That has just sparked a new Idea in my midst

Side note thing: The primarch of the Iron Hands is Ferrus Manus, right? Isn't Feris the scientific name for Iron? Is the Emporer siggesting that Ferrus Manus is Iron Man?

Ferrus Manus is the Primarch for the Iron Hands. And yes he is practically the Iron Man. He is mostly machine now.

Ferrus got his head lopped off by fulgrim to show his loyalty to horus. But he had iron hands. Anyways, I wonder if i could kidnap gav thrope, and make him tell us who the lost primarchs are...

I'd say that one of the 2 lost legion is a traitor one: in the last column, the lenght of the... blur... is perfect to cover the words "excommunicate traitors".

and "manus" means "hand", not "man".
so, Ferrus Manus is Iron Hand, not Iron Man. :P
