Is there any information yet on the two 'missing' legions?

Not that I know of, I just picked another 40K novel yesterday trying to catch up after stopping for 1 whole year :S

The two missing legions, at least to my understanding, are intentionally obscure to encourage role play.

no... and I imagine that this is by no means considered canon. Since I'd heard that the decision to keep the two unknown legions unnamed and unlisted, it was left to players to come up with their own lore. many records were lost, after all, and many more were simply not written to be remembered.

Seems common with the imperium - do things, lose the bearacracy, wonder why no one knows nothing.
