Though another Primarch, his brother Magnus, tries to reach the Emperor by psychic projection and warn him of Horus' treachery during his trance like state, the corruption spreads and prevents Horus from accepting his brother's guidance.
He then turns against the Emperor, becoming the Traitor from the perspective of the Imperium. He plans a coup d'etat on a galactic scale, and ultimately leads eight other Primarchs, as well as their Legions and other forces, in war against the Emperor and all who stand with him. The betrayal and campaign are eventually labeled the Horus Heresy.
Civilian Reader: Guest Review: “Promethean Sun” by Nick Kyme (Black Library)
Most of those who turn against the Emperor become, or already are, corrupted by Chaos. Horus, outwardly still loyal, engages in subterfuge and secretly contravenes Imperial orders.
He also issues orders designed to weaken and disperse forces deemed Loyalist, while simultaneously building covert alliances. Then, in the first open move of the Heresy, he succeeds in culling from the ranks of the rebels those persons and units still loyal to the Emperor. A subsequent operation, expertly directed by Horus and co-conspirators, involves the massacre of three Loyalist Legions that are sent by the Imperial authorities along with four other Legions that have secretly turned Traitor , to crush the rebellion.
Meanwhile, a mass slaughter and ritual on the Ultramarine world of Calth by the Primarch Lorgar summons massive warpstorms over the galaxy; hindering all communication and travel for the Loyalists. While the siege is a strategic stalemate, Horus is aware that massive Loyalist reinforcements are on the way. Lowering the shields of his flagship as a lure or out of momentary regret , the Emperor, Rogal Dorn, Sanguinius, and a force of Imperial Fists teleport aboard the flagship to confront him. Horus initially kills Sanguinius, and then is finally killed in single combat with his father, while the Emperor is grievously wounded in the same action.
The death of Horus leads to disarray among the invading Traitors, whose campaign is by this time also threatened by the imminent Loyalist reinforcements, and they hastily retreat. The Battle for Terra and the whole Horus Heresy campaign is effectively over. Horus' campaign lasts less than a standard decade, [a] yet it is devastating in its scale, and the Loyalist victory comes at great cost. The losses in talent, knowledge, manpower, and territory result in a prolonged period of cultural, political, and technological stagnation and regression for the Imperium.
The barely-alive Emperor is interred at the end of the Battle for Terra in a complex life support device, a technological marvel known as the Golden Throne. The Throne also powers the Astronomicon, the navigation aid responsible for holding the Imperium together, as well as keeping the destroyed Webway entrance sealed, lest Daemons overrun the Earth. Entombed in the device, his decaying physical form is kept alive in a moribund state, and he is said to be able to express himself only psychically. A long and often violent period of "cleansing" the Imperium from Traitors, and rebuilding its institutions, takes place following the end of the Heresy that is known as the Great Scouring.
The majority of surviving Traitor forces flee to a Chaos anomaly in realspace known as the Eye of Terror. There, they create their own empires albeit more ramshackle and resource starved, resulting in constant infighting and betrayal known collectively as 'the legion wars' and continue to harry the Imperium for resources slaves and equipment and vengeance known as the long war.
The future history detailed in Horus Heresy -branded material is depicted as lost, forgotten, or censored ; yet situations caused by or related to the Heresy form the basis for much of the present context. This campaign setting included the establishment of the Horus Heresy as an important canon-based element. In the years following its introduction as background for other products and as campaign setting for Space Marine , the Horus Heresy came into its own as a project; the transition mainly took place early in the 21st century.
The concept was refined and further defined with expansions in areas such as art, gaming, literature, and multimedia. The continuing additions are set in the Heresy period of the universe, c.
