Canon Conflict Black Templars

Hey Montonius,

something I just now seem to notice: I saw you recently talking about canon conflict sections. I think the Black Templars need one, because they both seem to hate every psyker and tolerate Navigators and Astropaths as nessecary evil and on the other to revere psykers as gifts from the Emperor but don't have some themselves.

Black Templars / Psykers

Hey Montonius,

these are the textparts I could find concerning psykers:

The Black Templars deviate from Codex-compliant Chapters, including the Imperial Fists, in one primary way. The Chapter's zealous hatred for mutants and inherent distrust of the Warp and anything related to it means that the Chapter possesses no Librarians. The Grey Knights, known for their incorruptibility and closeness to the Emperor, represent the only Imperial psykers that the Black Templars will take as allies. The Black Templar's extreme revulsion to fighting alongside any individuals tainted by the Empyrean would normally prevent them from being allied with anyone with such abilities. The Grey Knights are the exception as the Black Templars consider it an honour to fight alongside Astartes whose membership was originally chosen by the Emperor, who bear a portion of his direct genetic inheritance and have never once been corrupted by Chaos. This attitude can prove to be challenging for those Black Templars who are chosen to serve in the Deathwatch and must learn to fight alongside the Librarians of other Chapters as part of a Kill-team.

Parts of the Emperor's Champion vows, but I don't think these need to be replaced:

  • Abhor the Witch, Destroy the Witch - The Black Templars' hatred of the mutant and the Warp drives them into a rage in battle. Should their enemies' ranks include a psyker, they will rush to vanquish him with renewed effort. Their hatred enhances their will, making them highly resistant to psychic abilities.

The Black Templars' zealous hatred of mutants and the Warp prevents them from recruiting any man who bears genetic impurities, including the mutation that allows an individual to wield psychic abilities. This is why the Black Templars' order of battle contains no Librarians.

For this reason, only the most self-disciplined and open-minded of Black Templars are seconded to the Deathwatch; the strain on their minds to tolerate the myriad different expressions of a thousand divergent Chapter cults embodied by the new Battle-Brothers of the Long Watch will be enormous, and to be forced to live and fight alongside psykers, either the other Chapter's detached Librarians or the Ordo Xenos' psychically-gifted Inquisitors, will test the seconded Black Templar's faith and tolerance to their very limits.

Due to the fact that the Black Templars have such a hate and distrust for the Warp and anything within it or derived from it, Black Templars will not allow Librarians or any beings with psychic powers to fight amongst their ranks or in an alliance with them, except for the Grey Knights. Every Black Templar has a deep prejudice against any type of psyker, which can lead to trouble between the Chapter and those Imperial Adepta that often use Sanctioned Psykers, such as the Inquisition or even certain regiments of the Imperial Guard.

The Black Templars have been known to mercilessly wipe out entire planetary populations to expunge the sin of heresy, while the mere presence of a witch on the battlefield drives them into a zealous fury against which few enemies have any hope of standing. The Black Templars' professed loathing of the witch even extends to those psykers in the employ of the Imperium. Although the Chapter must utilise Astropaths, Navigators, and others with such Warp-spawned talents, the Black Templars are loath to do so, and eschew the use of Librarians in their ranks.

When serving alongside the Battle-Brothers of other Space Marine Chapters, many Black Templars prepare themselves through long fasts and week-long vigils in order to tolerate the presence of Space Marine Librarians. For those who serve a Long Vigil in the Deathwatch, fighting alongside a brother Space Marine who wields psychic power is a particular hardship, a trial they must undergo in order to serve the Emperor more fully and to strike down the hated alien. For this reason, great care is undertaken when selecting a Black Templar for secondment to the Deathwatch, for only a brother able to contain his deep-seated intolerance against psykers will be able to fight to his full capacity. Despite this, even these individuals are likely to pass every hour not spent fighting in deep contemplation and prayer, often cloistering themselves away from their fellow Deathwatch Brothers in a personal shrine to the Emperor, Rogal Dorn, and Sigismund.

Outsiders mistakenly interpret the lack of Librarians within the ranks of the Black Templars Chapter, and the fury with which its Battle-Brothers slay Chaos Sorcerers, as an intolerance for all psykers. This could hardly be further from the truth, for the Black Templars hold special reverence for Astropaths, seeing them as holy disciples who have actually communed with the God-Emperor. Navigators are similarly honoured, for their psychic blessing allows them to see the divine light of the Astronomican and guide the Black Templars through the Warp to deliver righteous retribution against the Emperor's enemies. Instead, the Black Templars' abhorrence is reserved for deviant alien witches and rogue psykers who embrace the blasphemous Dark Gods in their quest for power. These individuals threaten to drag entire worlds from the Emperor's light and into damnation, for they are conduits through which unholy daemons can cross into the mortal realm. So it is that the Black Templars strengthen their souls with the purity of their faith when facing rogue psykers, as they strive to end with a single sword-stroke the potential of a daemonic assault that could otherwise plunge the Emperor's realm into decades of bloodshed and madness.

Such duties of record-keeping would normally fall to a Chapter's Librarians, but the Black Templars Chapter boasts not a single psychic Space Marine amongst their ranks. It is uncertain how, or when, the Black Templars ceased to field Librarians, for with their disappearance, much of the Chapter's history was also lost. Outsiders suggest that, as the Chapter came to worship the Emperor as a God unlike most of their fellow members of the Adeptus Astartes, they took his decree at the Council of Nikaea to disband their Librarius divisions as holy law. Others whisper that the Black Templars' gene-seed has somehow deteriorated, or that their Librarians were slain during a great war in the Chapter's history. Some scholars point to the Black Templars' final battle to end the Catelexis Heresy in the 34th Millennium, and the apocalyptic psychic death-scream that tore through the Warp after the slaying of the Cacodominus, as another possible explanation. Whatever the truth, the Black Templars have come to accept the loss of their Librarians as part of the Emperor's divine plan. If the Emperor decides to once again bless the Black Templars with Librarians, they will embrace it, but until that day, they will wage battle without these powerful warriors at their side.

Iron Hands and Ferrus Manus

Hi again Montonius. first off I want to thank you for all the good work you have done on this wiki. Also thanks for adding the pages I was asking.  I was also wondering if we could start pages for Erasmus Ruuman and Ishmal from the Feat of Iron novel.  As well as Erasmus Golg of the Iron Warriors from Horus Hersey book 3 page 254 I think. I know it would help you more if I could make them rather then ask, but I am not the best at editing or starting pages. so best I can do is give you the books they are in and try and help a little. 

Hey  Montonius I was reading the old earth novel and on chapter 15 they talk about how the Cult of the Gorgon built a puppet version of Ferrus Manus that actually had one of his real arms attached to it that they had found and that VulKan destroyed.  Also I think I remember reading in the short story Imperfect that is in the Death and defiance anthology, that Fabius Bile had made clones of Ferrus but they were destroyed as they wouldnt turn traiter like there template. oh and also I read in the rebirth novel by Nick Kyme that the Iron Hands were returned Ferrus skull after his death. It says it in the epilogue on page 378. Hopeing u can update the page with all this info I found please and thanks man. Warhammer1994 (talk) 05:05, July 16, 2018 (UTC)Warhammer1994

Hey montonius i was going to edit it but the page is locked. the one dreadnought on the Knight Lords Page is ancient reeve. this one I mean. oh and the other one  next to is is ancient Carrow they are both in horus heresy book 2 from forge world.

Hi again montonius i wanted to say also i noticed the updates i added to shadrak Medusan were removed from the shattered legions page. I had gotten them from the medusan novel. it explains how his hand left hand was ravaged i the first part of the book and goes into how they had to remove it and replace it. the other part i added was from page 20 i believe. i read it from a pdf file online tho so may be different in paper version. but it tells how he is battel scared and his flesh is inlaid with augmetic circuitry, and says how his rightside rib wall is a augmetic plate grafted to flesh-spare bone. i undertstand if u dont want it on the wiki. but i like having the details there to read. that and iron hands are my favorite legion. thanks for the good work on the wiki though man very informative. AxelIronHands (talk) 07:12, August 5, 2018 (UTC)AxelIronHands


I just wanted to say thank you for being such a good administrator.  Unlike other wikis or games where the moderation and administration is toxic and oppresive, you don't do that and I don't feel like purging you after any decisions. Thanks again for making this wiki what is it.

Update/fix database dump

Hey Montonius,

First of all, thanks so much for maintaining such high quality content. It has gotten me so engaged that I want to read more, so I wanted to have a epub/mobi version of the wiki to read on my kindle. I was wondering if there was currently a copy of such a thing?

If not, another way would be to parse the xml database dumps found here and generate an ebook using that. However, currently the download links to the database are broken, and haven't been updated in a while. I was wondering if you could generate an updated database dump? If I manage to successfully generate it, and if people are interested I would love to share it back with the community.

Thanks alot,

Terra Page

Hey Montonius With the Terra page there are a few edits that need to be done on it and because I can’t edit it, I thought I should tell you so yoh can fix it.

In the Info Box for Terra, the Sol System can be turned into hyperlink and the Tithe Grade that would be classified as Aptus Non also hyperlink that. Then their is for its categories, it doesn’t have the planet category.

Also can I ask why some pages are locked from editing?

hi montonius any chance we could add this images from the horus heresy books from the gamesworkshop to the iron hands page. not fully sure if they are offical but i believe they are. i just noticed this group wasnt on the page yet. and they are really good images.

TaliaHanson (talk) 01:47, August 28, 2018 (UTC)Taliahanson

Hey Montonius. i was reading both the new iron hands novels. while i was going threw the voice of mars i noticed i may have been wrong on the image i gave you being kristos. i think this is actually a younger Stronos. as the appearance matches his discriptions throughout the book. i was the one to add the image to lexicanum so ill have to let them know this is wrong as well.Warframe1994 (talk) 00:42, September 2, 2018 (UTC)warframe1994


Hey Montonius

Sorry, didn't see that I was doing that wrong. I will keep that in mind and thanks for you help with that.

Grey Knights Chapter

Hey Montonius,

I saw you reverting the intro sentence on the Grey Knights to "The Grey Knights ARE [...] a Chapter." Why is it something different with them? I changed it on every other Chapter page. May the Emperor guide you.

--Vo0DoO40k (talk) 19:45, September 4, 2018 (UTC)

Alright. A bummer with the bug ... Hope the Emperor will fix that soon...

Vo0DoO40k (talk) 19:22, September 5, 2018 (UTC)

Hey Montonius i looked around and the images I gave you for Iron Hands are not canon. I did however find a few that are that I would love to see added. They are all from Horus Heresy Book six from games workshop. Also i hope you didnt mind I removed the other images so they didnt cludder up your talk page.TaliaHanson (talk) 08:08, September 5, 2018 (UTC)TaliaHanson

Lucius Link

Hey Montonius

On the Emperor’s Children page, in the info box the link to Lucius goes to the planet instead of the person, Lucius the Eternal.

Am I being punished? Or is it broken? After I logged in, I went to create a new discussion for something I wanted to share, but I was not able to put in any text after the title. As such I was not able to make the post.

In trying to reply to a discussion, I again could not put in any text in for a post. Please help. --Primarch Anubis (talk) 16:43, September 27, 2018 (UTC)

Discussions Glitch

I still don't know what the problem is, but IE11 still has the problem of not giving me the Text Field to type in. Microsoft Edge works, but I detest it more than the others such as Chrome and Firefox. Where can I get more info about the Discussions app? I need to fix this as it is inconvenient having to use a second browser. Thank You. --Primarch Anubis (talk) 16:29, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

Missing Planets

Hey Montonius

I wanted to ask you if I could just go through the Planets Category and then see what planets are not on the Planets of Warhammer 40,000 Page and then put all the missing planets on the Planets of Warhammer 40,000 Page as one whole edit?

--Lor the God of Lore (talk) 09:13, October 9, 2018 (UTC)Lor the God of Lore

Hey Montonius

Just finished up doing the page and I wanted to say that it took a longer then I though and I probably missed some sources because there were more planets then I thought there would be but I did my best and you should just check through it to fix any mistakes I made or like you said if it’s not up to stands just undo it.

The main reason why I didn’t add many sources because I forgot when I did all the planets so I went through some and got two from it but I just don’t have the time to go over all the pages again. Sorry.

Ultramarines, Raven Guard and the Indomitus Crusade

Hi Montonius. Could you open those three pages to me? I want to add some things to them. I will inform you about their completion once I am done with them.

Dark Angels Successor Chapters

Hi, Montonius! I have found information that the Dark Angels has 17 Successor Chapters that the Imperium knows of. I found it on the Warhammer Community Page 500 Facts for 500 Stores. I would add the info myself, but I don't have the permission to do it. Please could you add the info or allow me to edit the page for Dark Angels. the Source is here (Fact 75):
