Ok, I am compiling what information we know about the Celestial Lions.

We know they were involved in Armageddon, and after complaining about the Marines Malevolent bombing some civilians, some mysterious things began to happen to them. They were given bad intel causing them to walk into several ambushes, and unknown snipers targeted and slew the all of their apothecaries.

What I would like to know more about is what happened to them after. Were they completely wiped out? Wouldn't they have had some apothecaries in training? Would they be able to get some of their gene-seed back from Mars (isnt that why they tithe it in the forst place?). Would the Salamanders help them?

Anyway, feel free to correct anything I got wrong, and speculate as you see fit! Thanks!!

Although Lexicanum isn't the most reliable of sources, the Celestial Lions page is pretty much a paraphrasal of all the canon fluff for them.

It should be mentioned however that the Armageddon3 IA article listed them as being founded in M38, whilst the Armageddon3 website said they had a proud history stretching back over 4,000 years, which would put them as M37 at the latest.

It was the Salamanders who had issues with the Marines Malevolent not the Celestial Lions.

Wow, reading that Lexicanum article, I gotta say that really sucks. Sorry to point out the obvious, but, wow.

That's some pretty awesome background I didn't know about. Great for conspiracy theorists and those into black helicopters etc. Oooh evil Inquisition and all that.

The Armageddon 3 website is still available at www.archive.org

However for some reason I can't access pages within it which is strange because I was looking at it not 3 weeks ago without any problems.

this doesn't seem to work. I did get to the legal and copyright info which was VERY interesting
