A '''Praetor''' is a bygone rank for a senior Astartes officer of the [[Space Marine Legions]] used during the [[Great Crusade]] and [[Horus Heresy]] eras in the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. The Praetors were the mightiest warriors and battle-leaders of the ancient ''[[Legiones Astartes]]'', second only to the god-like [[Primarch]]s in martial skills and generalship. These lords of the [[Imperium of Man]] held the power of life and death over whole worlds, with the direct control of entire Imperial war fleets and armies in their hands. Each was a greatly experienced warrior and warlord, unique in character, who had written a legend in blood for themselves, and carried into battle the finest wargear and weapons known to [[Mankind]] at that time. In their ranks could be found [[Chapter Master]]s and Lord Commanders, First Captains, Khans and Tribunes as the traditions and cultures of their individual Legions dictated. They were the masters of war who commanded the hosts of the Great Crusade that  conquered worlds unnumbered.

==History==
 
==History==
During the time of the Great Crusade in the late 30th Millennium, Space Marine Legions were vast engines of war whose super-human warriors numbered in the tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of superhuman warriors. The full panoply of war of an Astartes Legion was a terrible thing to behold, and was capable of obliterating entire civilisations through a variety of deadly means ranging from sheer brute force and numbers, armoured assault waves, murderous siege-craft or overwhelming and relentless attacks from close orbit. The particular methods of such exterminations were overseen by the high commanders of the Legions, select individuals that brought decades of experience and acquired tactical acumen to the ruin of Mankind's foes.

|Banished to [[Caliban]] following an attempted assassination attempt on the Dark Angels' [[Primarch]] [[Lion El'Jonson]], Luther was charged with being the active Regent of Caliban and with the selection and training of new recruits for the Dark Angels. Ironically, Luther would eventually betray the Lion after allowing himself to be seduced by the offers of [[Chaos]], rallying a good portion of his fellow Dark Angels to his cause, who became known as the [[Fallen Angels]]. Jonson confronted the Chaos-corrupted Luther, and in a great conflagration, Caliban was destroyed in the aftermath. Deep within the bowels of [[Rock, The|The Rock,]] the remnant of the I Legion's lost homeworld, and now their mobile [[Fortress-Monastery]], Luther has been kept alive for ten thousand standard years inside a stasis field.

Marius Gage panoply

First Master Marius Gage, Chapter Master of the 1st Chapter of the Ultramarines Legion

A Praetor is a bygone rank for a senior Astartes officer of the Space Marine Legions used during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras in the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. The Praetors were the mightiest warriors and battle-leaders of the ancient Legiones Astartes, second only to the god-like Primarchs in martial skills and generalship. They most commonly commanded Chapter-size formations within their Legion or whatever the equivalently-named unit was within a given Legion's culture.

These lords of the Imperium of Man held the power of life and death over whole worlds, with the direct control of entire Imperial war fleets and armies in their hands. Each was a greatly experienced warrior and warlord, unique in character, who had written a legend in blood for themselves, and carried into battle the finest wargear and weapons known to Mankind at that time.

In their ranks could be found Chapter Masters and Lord Commanders, First Captains, Khans and Tribunes as the traditions and cultures of their individual Legions dictated. They were the masters of war who commanded the hosts of the Great Crusade that conquered worlds unnumbered.

HistoryEdit

During the time of the Great Crusade in the late 30th Millennium, Space Marine Legions were vast engines of war whose transhuman warriors numbered in the tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands. The full panoply of war of an Astartes Legion was a terrible thing to behold, and was capable of obliterating entire civilisations through a variety of deadly means ranging from sheer brute force and numbers, armoured assault waves, murderous siege-craft or overwhelming and relentless attacks from close orbit. The particular methods of such exterminations were overseen by the high commanders of the Legions, select individuals that brought decades of experience and acquired tactical acumen to the ruin of Mankind's foes.
