    Default Guilliman and the time-locked stasis seal...

    If I may direct you to Codex Space Marines, page 9, paragraph 2......

    And in a 'news to me' it seems the genetic stock of the Traitor Legions wasn't destroyed, but put in deep cold storage.......

    Does this add credence to their possible use later in the Imperium's history? Such as founding the Exorcists (who very much remind me of Thousand Sons...)

    old news.

    check up on the 13th founding, blood ravens, and others.

    also without the gene seed how can you find those alpha spies?

    Not sure it is old news....

    Certainly the first time I've seen it in black and white that the Imperium retains, or at least retained, geneseed of all the heresy legions.

    That bit of fluff has been around forever. In the novel Nightbringer, Uriel visits the stasis chamber once he was made captain of the 4th company to pray for guidance, even though he has doubts about whether Guilliman is really healing or in a state of near death. Guilliman is not there for genetic stock, rather he is there for hope that one day he may return from FUlgrims wound and lead the Imperium to a new golden age.

    Wrong bit of background chum

    I'm referring to 'traitor' geneseed held in stasis, on Terra. Not Guilliman himself.

    Yeah, it's definitely old (think it's in the 2nd Ed Codex Imperialis), but it's not something that gets printed very often.

    Yeah, they kept the Traitor genestocks - old news. The big question is what they do with it (aside from the Grey Knights, but that is for another day).

    Yeah I'm thinking this relates to some other stuff like the 13th founding, Chapters with "mysterious" pasts, etc. etc. On the hobby side, it does give credence to lesser known or even homebrew space marine chapters who may have some traitor geneseed.

    This has been around as long as the Cursed Founding information has been, although usually as a 'rumour' iirc. It's very heavily implied (almost outright stated) that the Adeptus Terra and the Inquisition have mucked around with the traitor gene-seed stocks on a few occasions. It leaves the door open for being descended from Traitors in making homebrews.
