Is there a definitive description of which nation/region each of the founding legions supposedly most closely resembles?
A few I think I know:
- White Scars: Eurasia (East Asian European)
- Space Wolves: Nordic/Scandinavia
- Ultramarines: they match the Roman Empire culturally so Mediterranean Europe (Italy, Greece etc)
- thousand sons: Persian/Egyptian
- Death Guard: British
- Imperial Fists: German
- Iron Hands Britain/Northern Europe
But are there any definitive definitions anywhere? Note I am talking about the majority of original Terran members of each legion, not the planets the primaries landed on that May or may not have matched an earth culture.
