Ok, with my move from Codes SM to SW, i have renamed my Komodo Dragons/Nights to the Vorpal Wolves.

Basically, only fluff so far is that the newest squad shaves their heads, and only the veterans can chose to style their hair e.g. mohawks.

Also, frost is now exchanged with vorpal for weapons - vorpal in the sense of deadly (According to google)

That should present you with some interesting modelling/konverting opportunities.  Sounds good.

However, I'm not sure I understand your new name correctly.  Did you mean one of the following?

Knights to the Vorpal Wolves;
Knights of the Vorpal Wolves;
Nights of the Vorpal Wolves.

i am thinking of a chapter that is called "Nightmarines" that i've found up.

this chapter i could think of be concentrating on outflanking and some sort of weapons.

i also think some sergeants could be ugraded to give the unit infiltrate or some other snacks that fits the fluff.

maybe all librarians could be very different from other or something as the name it fits.

just a thought i found up using the name as set-up.
I found out I was a rat today!

@ ScarrEldrad

In the new Codex: Space Marines, you could use Korsarro Khan (or your own commander 'counting as' KK) to give your army list the type of ability you desire.

It sounds interesting.  Good luck following through with your plan.   :)

I don't play space marines, but i've always wanted to make a chapter. here's something i've come up with:

Name: Dark Crusaders
Homeworld: none, a few decades after the chapter was founded, their homeworld was attacked by tyranids. despite fierce and heroic fighting, they were driven off the world. due to the early destruction of the world, they only managed to form a few companies. they now roam the stars in their fleet, searching for new recruits as they fight the enemies of the Emperor. their chapter now numbers about 7 companies.
Chapter Icon: a shield with a sword pointing downward across it.
chapter tactics: don't know what this is, i have the codex, but it is currently not on hand.
Background: see above. i'll add more later.

@ Dark Corsair, Your Senior Officer

Interesting fluff, but I have some issues that you may want to address.

The first Tyranid invasion wasn't too long ago (745.M41) in the practical scheme of things.  Second, Space Marine chapters that follow the Codex Astartes limit themselves to a total of only 10 companies.  Even aberrant chapters are highly unlikely to have 50! :o

Third, Chapter Traits were only legal in the 4th Ed. Space Marines codex.  The newest one did away with traits.  Perhaps you meant that you don't know which Chapter Tactics you want to use with which Special Character (or counts-as).

Otherwise, it all sounds good.  :)

Name: the Aegiswing

Founding: 2nd.  The Aegiswing was founded by Alehandros Mazraen of the Ultramarines.  As Captain of the 5th Regiment, he fought alongside Roboute during the Great Crusade and earned countless accolades and honors.  However, Alehandros was often disinterested with the goals and motives of the Marines, prefering to aid any and all he possibly could, saving the people of the Imperium as well as its warriors.  Upon the 2nd Founding he was immediately selected to found his own chapter in the vision he desired.

Symbols/Motifs: -Wings are the most prevalent icon, featured heavily across the entire chapter, with Commanders often adorned with a multitude of winged badges, honors, pauldrons, etc
-Shields are a secondary symbol, used predominantly by

Homeworld: Kryta
-Kryta was conquered in the Great Crusade by Roboute Guilliman, and as such is a supremely rich and vibrant land.  With a strong economy, superior living conditions, and a highly advanced civilization, Kryta is an exemplar of the legacy of the Ultramarines Primarch.
-Despite the lack of any war or conflict on the world, Krytans value martial skills above all others, and place a strong importance on a code of justice and chivalry known as The High Oath.
-The government is a nominally a hereditary monarchy, but until recently the royal line had been lost (for hundreds of years).  In this time the Lord-Regent was elected by the people for a life term to rule.
-the Captain of the Aegiswing 3rd Company, Artor Haeltes, returned to his home of Kryta at the behest of unnatural dreams and moved the legendary Alazein Rock from the cave it blocked.  Unbeknownst to the citizenry (only the revered Oracles), the only one capable of moving it would be the true heir of the throne.  As such, Artor was named High King and granted the ancient seat of the Formazar Palace and rulership of Kryta

Background: -The Aegiswing is unlike other Chapters in its organization.  Each of the 10 companies is a self-sufficient battle company.  Their doctrine states that Captains are granted leeway and independence (within parameters set by Chapter Master) to act as they wish.  Each company raises its own recruits from a specified region of Kryta, and each company's members remain in that company for their entire career (barring special circumstances).  As such, each company contains its own Veterans, Scouts, vehicles, etc.
-When a Captain is raised to Chapter Master, his company (no matter the #) becomes known as the Honor Company and functions as his personal force.  The CM will often Crusade or go on Campaign and summon 2-3 other companies if the need is there.
-the Aegiswing is known as a particularyl chivalrous and gallant Chapter.  they will often come to the aid of other Imperial forces, as well as protecting civilians to a vastly greater degree than other chapters.  Even certain alien races (Eldar, Tau) who are the victims of Chaos/other "evil" forces are often protected
-above all else, the chapter values honor and valor.  however, they will not needlessly or foolishly waste troops.  The Aegiswing practices efficient, precise action, securing objectives and attaining goals with the minimum force required

Notables:
Chapter Master Ursurin Ezran, Lord Protector of Krytanis (system)
Captain Artor Haeltes, High King of Kryta
Epistolary Phaedron Solanis (3rd Company), the Scourge of Golgamir

Good Fluff, HowlingHawk.  Sounds like the Aegiswing would get along swimmingly with the Galahadain;)

Name: Sanguine Guard

Symbol: A pair of wings "The Wings of Sanguinius" (the BA symbol without the drop of blood), more or less. They don't employ much iconography beyond squad numbers and role.

Homeworld: The semi-feral world of Jemtia. The Sanguine Guard's main base is suited on the planet's only moon. The people of Jemtia, who make up the Sanguine Guard recruits, live in nomadic clans travelling the great forests of Jemtia, hunting during the cold winters and farming during the summers. The most promising of the young hunters and warriors are taken to be tried by the Sanguine Guard. These young recruits are eager to prove their worth and reckless and oblivious to danger in their attempts to do so.

Background: A 2nd Founding Chapter of the Blood Angels, the Sanguine Guard revere Sanguinius as much as the Emperor Himself (something the Ecclesiarchy has taken note of). Of special note are two practices of the Sanguine Guard. The first is the blood bonding, in which all members of a squad fill a goblet with their blood, which each one then drinks from. This practice is done everytime a new member joins a squad.

The second is the use of bionics instead of jump packs. In an attempt to image their Primarch, the Sanguine Guard implant bionic wings on those proven worthy enough, who then serve as the assault forces of the chapter. These wings are hand-crafted by the chapter's tech-marines and each pair are a masterpiece of technology, incoprorating the neccesary anti-grav technology to lift a marine in armour, as well as often being highly ornated or crafted to resemble real wings.



Sorry if that was a wall of text doing over 9000 damage, but there it is :o

name: light bearers

home planet: fleet born

legion of origin: unknown to imperial records

colors: red and gold


symbol(s): yellow circle with a zigzag line through it on the right shoulder pad and a black V on the other.

current location: on crusade in segmentum obscurus

  Origins: the light bearers are an enigma amongst the adeptus estartes as it is not known which legion they come from nor what founding the chapter origionates. many members claim to be descended from the one of the lost primarchs although there is no way to verify this.what is known is that the chapter became active during the age of apostasy when they put down a several small rebellions near the frontier of the imperium.

other historic battles: to a limited degree the chapter was engaged in the Damocles gulf crusade as well as fending off the outriders of hive fleet kraken.

So, here are my lads:

Name: Ghost Bears

Parent Chapter: Believed to be the Space Wolves.

Homeworld: Ashlan

Chapter Master: Khan Alexander Kerensky

Colours: Blue/white

Symbol: Roaring Bears

Culture/Traits: Ashlan is a wind-wracked polar world and the
warriors of the Ghost Bears reflect the toughness needed to survive such an inhospitable climate. The majority of the people of this world are semi-nomadic herders and raiders who follow the path of the great elk herds that roam the wilderness. The warriors of the Ghost Bears are split into the vat-bred Trueborn and the natural born Freebirths. At times there has been tension between the two groups but under the inspired leadership of Khan Kerensky Trueborn and Freebirths have come to realise that both is neccessary to the continuation of the Chapter.

Combat Doctrine: Company Captains are given the freedom to outfit and equip their forces as they see fit so the actual composition and tactics of a Ghost Bear force will generally vary depending on his discretion. However, as befits their nomadic origins, no Ghost Bear warrior likes to walk; either through the use of drop pods, rhinos or bikes, all Ghost Bears prefer to ride into battle.

Name: Bruins

Descended from: Dark Angels

Homeworld: Cadia

Colors: Dark Angels green with parallel white stripes on the chest.

Symbol: Upright Bear behind dual axes

Background: The Bruins were developed as a cheaper form of marine. They don't wear backpacks, and use espionage and surprise as their prime tactics. The Bruins were initialy founded when a force of Dark Angels stationed on Cadia was called to arms in a Chaos attack. The Bruins found that they could more effectively combat foes when traveling lightly, and with ambushes. Word of the Bruins spread, and Lion El' Johnson declared them a separate chapter tasked to defend Cadia, and to serve as specialist troops for larger imperial forces.

Special Rules: "Packing light": Bruins need to conserve ammo without backpacks, so a bruin armed with a rapid fire weapon must half his amount of times to shoot, in example, a bolter that shoots twice can only shoot once in the hands of a Bruin.

Also, do you guys think it would be appropriate for a small force of Bruins to be fielded with an IG army?

Name: The Iron Hawks

Symbol: Mainly the head of a hawk, however this symbol is reserved for higher ranking space marines, normal squads (eg. Tactical Squads) are responsable for there own heraldry, and will usualy have a picture/symbol similar to there squad name.

Chapter Traits: Non - Codex chapter, do not fight with the rules of Roboute Guillaman,  Extrmely short temper (possibly from gene seed mutation)

Homeworld: Travel between planets with a fleet of battle barges

Background: The Iron Hawks are a relativly new chapter (as space marines go) decended from the Hawk Lords. There chapter master is considered to be something of a maverik and often leads assaults some would consider stupud and suicidal. They are easily angered and this sometimes is the cause of rash actions on the chapters part. This has left them somewhat cut off from other chapters.

Name: Angels Libertas

Symbol: An angelic woman holding a sword with the sun behind it

Homeworld: Since there crusading I would guess they don't really have a home world so I need to come up with a name to there battle barge, hadn't given it much thought. I guess for now i could call it The Libertas?

Background: so I am not proficient in latin but to the best of my abilities I came up with this phrase "Officium Eximo Sanguis Pestis" which essentially means "Obligation to free the blood curse". My idea is basically a chapter of crusading Blood Angels bent on finding relics or technology that could cure them of there curse. Libertas was a roman goddess who represented liberty, thus the angelic woman holding a sword(even thought she was never depicted holding a sword, swords look cooler than torches). The concept behind my play style is masses of troops with jump packs being led by religious leaders (reclusiarchs and chaplains), and also heavy weapons kind of like a blitzkrieg where they have fast tanks followed by clean up crews of infantry. My way of making them look more religious is giving the veterans robes and such but I don't want them to look like dark angels so I am making them more toga like or just draping it from there waists.

There colors are mostly red and then yellow helmets for assault squads and red helmets for tac squads and a lot of gold on there shoulder pads and imperial eagles also they have one yellow knee pad on the left.
