The XV Legion retreated from realspace, and in the warp the vast majority of their number were transformed into incorporeal automata.
When they were next seen, the Thousand Sons fought at the side of Horus, wreaking vengeance on the warriors still loyal to the Emperor. Though Horus was ultimately slain, the Thousand Sons continue to fight in the Long War, and have waited patiently for the time of their emergence and retribution. Do they see beauty in the chaos I create? For Tzeentch has not opened their all-seeing eye. This allows them to march their dreaded Rubricae from the halls of the Silver Towers directly onto the field of battle.
The gene-seed of their Primarch Magnus left them disposed to psychic mutations, but the Crimson King harnessed this flaw, fostering in his children a grasp of empyric powers unmatched throughout the Imperium. When the Primarchs were wrenched from their incubation pods on Terra and scattered across the galaxy, Magnus the Red fell upon the remote colony world of Prospero. Even as an infant he displayed an innate psychic ability which would have seen him butchered as a mutant on most planets in the Imperium.
But this was not his destiny, for Prospero was a remote planet whose inhabitants had made it a refuge for psykers.
It was into the communes of these outcasts that the child Primarch was accepted. Magnus was made a ward of the scholars of Prospero, who viewed his comet-like arrival as a portent of his significance.
They were not wrong in this view, for the crimson-skinned child quickly surpassed the abilities of the greatest adepts in the communes and achieved mastery over each of the psychic disciplines they studied. As he matured, Magnus grew into a giant, both mentally and physically, eventually coming to behold the vastness of the empyrean. He witnessed the incomprehensibility of the warp and from it drew much wisdom and knowledge. More than one consciousness saw the mind of Magnus also, shining like a bright beacon amongst the roil of Chaos.
Chief among these was his distant sire, the Emperor of Mankind. It is said that the psychic communion formed between the Emperor and Magnus was so strong that when the Emperor eventually came to Prospero at the head of a mighty warhost, he and Magnus greeted each other as old friends.
Magnus accepted command of this army before kneeling and swearing undying fealty to his Emperor. The reunion of Magnus with his Legion was a great boon for the Thousand Sons. The rampant manifestation of psykers throughout their ranks had caused them to be feared and despised by many in the Imperium, with some calling for their complete eradication.
Even amongst their fellow Space Marines, some viewed the Thousand Sons as a danger to Humanity — an entire Legion of potential mutants armed and armoured with Imperial technology. By relocating the Thousand Sons to Prospero, Magnus saved them from the witch hunts that sought to purge the Imperium of psykers. He then turned his colossal intellect towards instructing his gene-progeny in the ways of psychic mastery, training them to control the enormous power that lay within them.
Some scholars believe it was at this early stage that Magnus first entreated the Chaos Gods, sacrificing his right eye to these entities in exchange for the power to stabilise the mutations that ate at his Legion. Whether or not the threshold of sorcery was crossed at this time, Magnus fostered in the Thousand Sons some of the most potent Librarians of the epoch, and their might was terrifying to behold.
Joining the Great Crusade to reclaim the galaxy, Magnus and his Sons fought with vigour and tactical brilliance. Using psychic illusion to obscure their advances, the Thousand Sons impelled their foes to deploy too thinly across an embattled planet, or lured the main bulk of an opposing force off world so that the remaining soldiers could be effortlessly overrun. When they did engage the enemy, the Thousand Sons tended to avoid close combat, relying instead on ranged weaponry and devastating psychic assaults to secure victory.
Xenos empires, enclaves of mutants and human populations who refused the dominion of the Emperor, all were consumed by the fires of Magnus and his Legion. The powers employed by the Thousand Sons did not go unnoticed by the other Legiones Astartes. Battle-brothers witnessed their Prosperine allies tearing psychic maws in the skies above battlefields from which bolts of eldritch energy racked the enemy ranks.
Alien war machines were pulverised by force of thought, and the flesh of the faithless was tortuously warped by will alone. Though Librarians of many Legions were possessed of similar psychic might, their abilities were disciplined, carefully controlled and honed to be a tool of the Imperium. The wanton fashion in which the Thousand Sons wielded their psychic energies showed no such restraint, and the effects they achieved were far more terrifying.
Such powers had been seen in other places in the galaxy — in dark places the light of the Emperor had not yet reached. Once again, suspicion and mistrust loomed over the Thousand Sons, for even amongst other Imperial psykers they were seen as practitioners of the abhorrent. Those warriorscholars inducted into the Legion underwent similar augmentative procedures as in other parts of the Imperium, receiving extensive bioimplants and hypno-indoctrination to make them Space Marines.
New inductees to the Thousand Sons also underwent the Nine Rites — a series of trials to ensure only the most psychically robust would serve the Legion. In the first of these Rites, known as the Formless Path, the recruit was placed into a state of physical dormancy while their psyche was cast to the Temple of Severance on the far side of Prospero.
Those unable to guide their unfettered mind back to their body still served the Legion, with their flesh being used to create an unthinking Servitor. After their fall to Tzeentch, the Legion completely embraced their magi culture, and the ancient, arcane symbols of their destroyed home world that had once been merely vestiges became far more pronounced. Far from the travel lanes that crossed the galactic expanse, it had no abundant natural resources, no veins of precious minerals, and no exotic plant or animal life.
But what this barren backwater did offer was a place to hide. Here they could study their collected knowledge in relative peace, without fear of reprisal. But with concern surrounding the Thousand Sons turning to outright condemnation of their practices, even Prospero could no longer provide a safe haven. Aware of the fractious animosity that was threatening the stability of his fledgling Imperium, the Emperor called for a council to be held on the planet of Nikaea.
The council would discuss the psychic powers that Magnus had fostered amongst his Legion, and decide whether or not the warpcraft of the Thousand Sons would be condemned or allowed to continue. The mightiest proponents of each side convened on the planet in an ancient amphitheatre, with the Emperor himself enthroned as arbiter above the dais.
Those opposed to the recklessness of the Thousand Sons made their case first, bearing witness to the misery wrought by sorcerers enslaved to their own dark powers.
They spoke of mutants and despots who made dark kingdoms amongst the stars, using their fell gifts to further selfish and sadistic ends. Magnus then strode to the dais and defended himself and his Legion against such claims, speaking with such charisma and conviction that all fell quiet. Last to speak was a contingent of Space Marine Librarians. They argued that while psykers could serve mankind, sorcery was something that must be bargained for, and neither man nor Primarch could be certain they had the best of such bargains.
The Emperor accepted this argument, sanctioning the employment of Navigators and Astropaths, but declaring the use of warp powers an unforgivable heresy against Humanity. As Magnus moved to storm from the hall, the Emperor himself stopped his son, and he bade Magnus cease his pursuit of arcane knowledge.
This was not the outcome Magnus had wanted, and his crimson face was wan and brittle. Yet, as recorded in the Grimoire Hereticus, Magnus bowed before his Emperor and pledged loyalty and obeisance from himself and his Legion. Though none in attendance knew at that moment, this would be the last time that Magnus and the Emperor would meet.
Though the crisis was thought resolved at Nikaea, the fear surrounding sorcery had masked other, more insidious betrayals that would soon be unleashed upon the Imperium. On Davin, the Warmaster Horus fell to the dark manipulations of Chaos. The Primarch, once the right hand of the Emperor, was utterly enthralled by the baleful gods that dwelt within the warp, and emerged from that planet with a singular desire to see the galaxy burn.
In that moment, the Crimson King was aware of the traps being laid for the Legions still loyal to the Emperor. The fate of the Imperium was known to Magnus.
He alone perceived every event that would transpire and each role that would be played. Only his own place in this impending nightmare was unclear to him. Aided by his fellow sorcerers, Magnus wove an immensely powerful spell that crossed time and space to breach the wards surrounding the Imperial Palace on Terra, and through this spell he cast a desperate message before the Emperor. The warning was not received as Magnus had hoped. He had used forbidden sorcery, and in doing so had broken the seals that had protected the Imperial Palace.
Rather than Horus, it was Magnus who was declared traitor. But Russ was deceived by Horus, whom he trusted and admired. When the Space Wolves fleet arrived at Prospero they were completely unopposed.
Some believe that their approach was masked by Tzeentch, where others claim it was the light of the Emperor that blinded the Thousand Sons to their attackers. Others still say that Magnus shielded the farseeing vision of his own sorcerers and prevented them from perceiving the coming Space Wolves, for in his despair he realised he had chosen the wrong path in his attempts to save the Imperium and now invited the retribution that would befall his world.
Whatever the cause, the Space Wolves were able to bombard Prospero mercilessly. Magnus remained ensconced in his sanctum while the world around him burned, imploring his Legion to accept their deaths with honour. At last Magnus broke.
Unable to bear the continued slaughter of his gene-children, he charged to meet Russ. The clash of Primarchs was more ferocious than all that had preceded it, with the cyclops battling the berserker right through the ruined heart of Tizca.

But with a whispered word of power Magnus was spirited away before death could claim him and sent drifting through the warp. There he saw the salvation that had eluded him — he beheld sorcery incarnate, and with inextricable finality Magnus the Red forsook his Emperor and gave himself fully to the Dark God Tzeentch. In that instant, Tizca and the Thousand Sons vanished from the face of Prospero. References 1. Boothroyd, G. Mansour, S. Campbell, R.

Campbell Loughborough University 3. However, the issue is somewhat clouded when the person who downloads a product and the person who uses it are not the same individual. For example, the decision to download a particular vehicle to be used as a rental car is made by a company employee who may never actually drive it. One person is the customer whereas someone else is the user. Another possibility is that a product is downloadd by an initial customer who then sells it on to someone else.
To avoid this possible confusion, some companies will use the terms end user or consumer to distinguish between the person who downloads the product the customer and the person who uses it. However, in this chapter, the term customer will be used in a more general way to refer to the person who will be the final owner, or at least user, of the product. This is the person or persons whose input to the product design is most valuable and therefore should be most sought after.
Hopkinson, R. Hague and P. Many designers may be tempted to take the view that they know what and how to design and they do not need any outside influence to distract them from achieving their aims. This is a particularly attractive position if the added time and cost of customer input is taken into consideration. A further obstacle is the often present requirement to keep a product confidential before it is launched.
Exposure of the product concept to potential customers could lead to confidentiality being compromised. These issues and others undoubtedly mean that there are time, cost and risk penalties associated with involving customers in the design process.
Perhaps one of the best known examples of this is the Sinclair C5 electric vehicle shown in Figure 3. It was the brainchild of one man who thought he knew what the market required and no doubt had market survey data that proved this. The idea of an environmentally friendly, next generation electric vehicle that would revolutionise urban transport was heralded in the press long before the product launch, but the public were not allowed to see what it would actually look like.
When it was finally released to the public view, it quickly became an object of derision as it fell far short of what potential customers had been expecting. Although C5 sales got off to a quick start, they soon dwindled and production was discontinued .
It soon had Figure 3. Reproduced with permission of Mr P. Andrews, retro-trader. The previously revered figure of Clive Sinclair became somewhat an object of humour. Had customers been shown what was on offer at an early stage of the design process, it is likely that a radical rethink would have resulted and perhaps the project would have been shelved altogether.
There are many such examples of product failures that could have been avoided if customer input had been treated with a higher degree of importance during design. Indeed, it could be argued that without customer input, a product will succeed merely as a matter of chance rather than through any methodical process. There are also well-known examples of this phenomenon, e. It was also the brainchild of one man who was adamant that his ideas and his alone would be embodied in the design.
This is supposedly why the original design did not have an interior clock! Companies need to bring customers into the design process at every stage, first of all capturing their requirements and then verifying that successive design iterations continue to meet these.
A good example of this is when Ford Motor Company wanted to develop a replacement for their highly successful European car, the Escort. They made extensive use of customer focus groups throughout the project and the end result was a vehicle appropriately named the Focus that was voted European Car of the Year and has gone on to be a highly successful car around the world.
As customers become increasingly discerning and demanding, so this input is becoming even more critical. Nowhere is this more so than in the realm of customised or individualised products, for which customer input can never be treated as an option. Since RM can take customisation to a new level, high-quality customer input is needed more than ever. The aim of any customer input exercise should be to capture their requirements into the product design specification PDS.
Some requirements might be shared by a large number of people in society, e. Obviously, the wide diversity of requirements that can be captured will require a range of different tools and techniques. The problem is that it is the more difficultto-capture qualities that will often have the most impact upon product success.
The main categories of input are discussed below.
This will include immediate performance targets but also longer term aspects such as reliability, serviceability and the life in service that customers will expect.
They would not download a product made in this way. Likewise, they may only wish to own a product that has lower energy consumption and that is easy to recycle.The plan almost succeeds; yet conflicting agendas among anti-Imperial protagonists, as well as the fortitude and unorthodox tactics of quick-to-adapt Blood Angels, narrowly result in Loyalist victory.
With a wide array of ornately armoured warriors, daemonic war engines and mutated warp-creatures, the Thousand Sons offer any collector an exciting range of possibilities. In this part of the story, Zahariel, selected as a candidate Space Marine, is accepted as a Dark Angel.
