427.M31? That is
a very short time. Some research later...
Ferrus Manus is the first to die, during Istvaan V massacre.
Sanguinius is killed by Horus.
Lion El'Johnson is turned into a vegetable when he gets home.
[?] Robot Girlyman goes on Crusades against the Alpha Legion and gets an attempted Headshot from Fulgrim who shows up.
084.M31: Jangatai Khan runs into the webway.
211.M31: Leman Russ goes down to the shops to get some beer and never comes home.
[?] Vulkan goes Treasure Hunting. Will return 'like Leman Russ at the End Times'.
[?] Corax heads into the Eye of Terror after brining his own Chapter to near-ruin. A talk with Dorn leaves both of them sad/angry.
427.M31: Dorn is killed.
