    Space Marines that completely and utterly ignore anything that isn't a threat for them.

    Marching through the mob of Chaos cultists, not even noticing the rain of stub bullets bouncing off their armor, the crazy dude clinging on them and trying to pry their helmets off like air, killing off that one Khornate berserker and the slightly bigger cultist that's leading the whole bunch, then sitting down having tea and discussing strategy while the rest of the cultists desperately try to hurt them.

    If one of them brings in a rocket launcher with krak missiles, or something else that could actually hurt a Marine, he'll get nonchalantly shot without the Marine even looking at his direction.

    Hmm. Or maybe they'd be better as a Chaos warband of Khorne?

    How about they also go exactly from point A to point B, if there is something in their way, they tear it down, kill it or simply blast through it.

    They cannot into alternate routes.

    Probably most marines, honestly. Except it looks more like "shoot at the big guy, then slash the rest" or "aim the Jump landing directly on the big guy".

    You have to figure most marine deployments are pretty run-of-the-mill shit. You don't often see the bigger Orks or Chaos around.

    By contrast, the tech priests who keep their weapons and armor in check are absolute masters of their craft. Managing to make power armor capable of being under sustained direct fire for hours at a time and still effortlessly plow it's way through a wall. They also designed a variaty of ammo-belts for the marines weapons, to cut down on reload time.

    Though they recieve no appreciation for their work, they see the marines akin to machines themselves, their mindset of "do exactly my job, nothing else, and let nothing stop me." feels akin to a true weapon. They find it a strange honor to work in service of true weapons of humanity. Almost as if you could directly serve a storm bolter that got up and killed people on it's own.

    That is the way they gain honors and recognize service. Brother Indomitable has a few flecks of red paint from the campaign against Khorne berzerkers during the 13th Black Crusade, and some yellow from the skirmish with the Tau on the Outer Rim.

    Now, the chapter has an unending goal of conquest on the edge of the Imperium, unconcerned with the inner politics of other chapters.

    Even if the Imperium were to fall tomorrow, they would still continue their endless goal of fighting beyond the fringes of the imperium, traveling on an endless track in circles around the edge of the galaxy.

    Their opposites are the " Obsessive Marines "

    They take notice and react to EVERYTHING. As a group. You will find the ENTIRE chapter charging after ONE cultist who just, mistakenly, fired his tape&rubber band piece of shit stubber at the Obsessive Marines.

    Who missed. Horribly.

    But the Obsessive Marines are not ones to simply shoot the man. Only a heretic could birth such a man. They now hunt his mother and entire family. Every friend and relative he ever knew- they devote an entire decade to researching everything about this man. Then a decisive strike occurs. Wiping out everyone he ever knew.

    When he knows his entire existance, everyone he knew, everything he cared for is in utter ruin and wiped from history itself. Only then, do the Obsessive Marines destroy him.

    All for simply leveling his shitty, harmless gun at them.

    Their armor and gear are kept pristine the entire time. They carry spare paint to patch up every scar as soon as they can on equipment. Even drop pods are pulled free and painted annew.

    They are unsure of what their objectives are, and when they're around, neither is anyone else.

    Bikes would be favoured as long as they were equipped with extra armour plating and a battering ram so they can ram through obstacles.

    Isn't there a long standing rivalry between the Obstinate Marines and the Obsessive Marines?

    I recall hearing that long ago the Chapter Master of the Obstinate Marines walked THROUGH the Chapter Master of the Obsessive Marines, who simply wished to discuss a ceremonial exchange of arms.

    The Obsessive Marines have spent every second of the hundreds of years that have passed since that day investigating the Obstinate Marines for heresy.

    You know, it would be interesting if the Obstinate Juggernaut Marines were an Alpha Legion loyalist chapter, determined to do everything the opposite of the way their Primarch did because they saw him as too divided and indirect.

    And they're pissed that he bothered to stop the great crusade because of some Heresy bullshit. Doesn't he know they have work to do? They're too busy for rebellion.
    >> Anonymous 09/19/11(Mon)11:45 No.16352431
    Yes but they have a very hard time doing so. As the more they investigate, the more they follow the wake of the Obstinate Marines...as the Obstinates ignore the cultists, the cultists shoot the Obsessive Marines, and a new life-long hunt for everyone those cultists once loved begins... so they can never fully catch up to the suspected heresy of the Obstinate Marines.

    All supplies (ammo and suchlike) are fired in pods well ahead of the Obstinate Marine advance, so that they aren't slowed down by having to carry more ammo than necessary and don't have to halt the advance to bring up more supplies.

    Brother Obduratus did not stop or slow as the report came in from his scout squadron. There was no time for that kind of bullshit.

    "Sir, we have the Xenos assault units trapped on the second floor of the building. Unfortunately the only way up is a set up wooden stairs. Recommend standby until the tech marines can activate the elevatus."

    He did not stop to shake with rage at this suggestion. He was too determined to stride to his goal. However, as he kicked down the walls of the building the Xenos were holed up in, he did spare the time for a small rebuke.

    "Hold for the elevatus? We are no ultramarines."

    As he activated the jump packs on his terminator armor, he had but one thing to say.

    "We are the Obstinate Marines. The Emperor's Juggernauts. And nothing will stand in our way."

    Inside the building, the jump packs propelled him upward until he burst through the ceiling to the floor above.

    In a corner, the squad of Firewarriors cowered and readied their weapons.

    Nothing could stand in the way of his mission.

    Inquisitor Toth glared at the white-haired Blood Raven. “Captain. I am not questioning your loyalty. But I have to wonder if the events you witnessed on Cyrene perhaps affected your judgment.” Angelos spun around, seething. “I apologize. That was a poor choice of words. But...what?” The tense exchange between the two power-armored men was broken by the keening shriek of a drop pod. Toth tilted his head back and gaped. “Did you call for them?”
    “Of course not,” Angelos growled. “I know better.”
    The pod slammed into the ground nearly half a click to the north. A plume of dust and Orkish bits rocketed into the sky from the impact. Toth broke into a jog, his artificer armor eating up the distance, Angelos hot on his heels. He reached the edge of the crater and stared.
    A small pack of Orks was busily firing away at the six-man squad of Astartes that had climbed out of the pod, who were looking around themselves as if confused. Suddenly, they seemed to notice the Orks around them, and one of them distractedly picked one up and threw it into the others, bowling them over. Before they could react, the squad leadrer hefted his bolter and took off at a dead sprint, racing for…Toth’s stomach knotted. They were headed directly for the mine where the Key of the Maledictum had been hidden away.
    “By the Throne,” Toth grumbled. “They’re called the Partinax Marines for a damned reason…”
    Angelos looked at the spectacle and laughed. “Well, this should be entertaining. Come on, we can see it better from over there.”
    The newcomers wasted no time. The group of Marines charged forward through the forest, plowing through the brush as if it weren’t there. A small cluster of equipment pods landed ahead of them, and they snatched more weapons from them without even slowing down.

    Atop a nearby hillock, the Dark Reapers of Macha’s task force watched, unseen. “Farseer,” one reported, tapping his helmet, “A group of Imperials has arrived. They are NOT the Ravens.”
    “Who are they?” Macha’s irritated voice replied.
    “Ah…I’m not sure. They’re plowing through the Orks like a molecular stiletto through air.”
    “Well…how close are they to the Key?”
    As if they had been listening in, the Astartes suddenly changed course, sprinting through a started clump of Orks who had wandered into their path. The Nob leading them saw the commotion and waved his choppa at them. “Dere’s da Space Marines! Krump ‘em good, boyz!” The greenskins still on their feet roared in response.
    “WAAAAGH! Gut ‘em! We’ll…uh…” they trailed off as the Marines charged, heedless, through the clearing and out the other side, ignoring the Orks completely.
    “W…wot do we do, boss?” one asked the Nob hesitantly.
    “FOLLOW THEM, YA GIT!” he yelled back. “Iz you blind? They must be headin’ to a betta fight!” The Orks nodded at their leader’s impeccable logik and trundled off after the distant Astartes.
    In the middle of a ruined Imperial chapel, nearly a mile ahead, Farseer Macha bowed her head respectfully to the Dark Reaper Exarch who stood before her. “Thank you, my dear friend, for your sacrifice. I must call upon you to execute it now.”
    “You can not ask for what I give freely, Farseer. My life if Biel-Tan’s.” Without another word, he strode over the lip of the ruined building and vanished in a brilliant red fireball.
    “The Seers have chosen! The Young King has sacrificed himself. We see now, the War God! Kaela Mensha Khaine!” she called out, arms raised.

    “I…HAVE AWOKEN…TO DO BATTLE…WITH THE ENEMIES OF THE ELDAR…” a reverberating voice said from beyond the shattered building façade. “NOW DIRECT ME…TO THE – OW! WHAT THE FUCK?!”
    Macha blinked at the deviation from the ritual. Curiosity got the best of her, and she inched forward to look over the edge of the crumbling stairs in front of the building.
    Khaine was sprawled on his front, the Wailing Doom lodged in the ground. A small band of Astartes was trampling over his molten form, apparently unaware that they had even hit anything. Macha gaped at the affront. The frontmost Marine turned a corner and ran out of sight as the others followed. As the last one neared the side of the building, Macha fired off a shot from her pistol at the edge of the building, catching the Marine’s attention.
    “Space Marine!” she yelled, livid beyond imagining. The Marine glanced at her. “Who in the HELL do you think you are?! Get back here and answer for what you have done!”
    “…No.” And without another word, the Marine ran after his colleagues, leaving Macha to gape like a fish under her helmet.

    Several kilometers away, Isador, Angelos, and Toth watched the spectacle through their long-optics with varying levels of emotion. Toth was finding it hard to stifle the impulse to groan, Isador was alternating between amusement and private concern, and Angelos could barely suppress a laugh. “I could watch this all day!” Angelos said, grinning from ear to ear.
    “Why are we simply allowing this?” Isador asked, directing his question to the Inquisitor.
    “You want to go tell them to stop?” Toth asked pointedly.
    Back in the city, the War God struggled to his feet, wrath oozing from his molten face. “THOSE…MORTALS DARED…TO BOWL ME OVER? THEIR DOOM CREAKS FROM…THEIR TWISTED BODIES…I SHALL CLEAVE THEM RIGHT AGAIN!”
    “And we shall follow, Venerated Khaine,” Macha said. She turned to her Warlocks and bade them follow, but before they could, an animalistic roar sounded from down the road. The assembled Eldar turned to see a small army of Orks chasing after the Marines, panting.
    “Dere’s a fight worth havin’, boyz!” the Nob at the head of the pack roared. “Kill da big burnin’ one! I want his head for me pointy stikk!”
    Angelos burst out laughing at the sight, as the shocked Eldar warhost and the rabble of Orks fell upon each other with a fury. “Oh, holy Emperor, this is the best thing I’ve seen all week!”

    Less than two miles away from where the Eldar god of War was having a very bad day, a pair of Alpha Legionnaires stood plotting. “Your…assurances leave me cold, Sssssindri,” the balding Chaos Lord said, glaring at his counterpart.
    “My Lord Bale, you need not concern yourself. The Eldar and the Orks are useful tools, no question. Their distractions, and the sacrifices of their blood, will be more than enough!” the Sorcerer said soothingly. He gestured grandly at the collapsed building behind him, where a small pack of cultists were busily clearing away rubble. “The Key of the Maledictum shall be ours in no time, I promise you.”
    “We shall see,” Bale snarled. “I am rather more concerned by the arrival of the Space Marines. They could find the ritual sites before we have a chance to perform them fully.”
    “Always a risk, yes, but the Blood Ravens are too busy evacuating the civilians of the planet to stop us,” Sindri said, turning his back on Bale and walking up to the building.
    “So you said,” Bale rejoined, turning to follow. “The Blood Ravens are – OW!”
    “What now, Lord Bale?” Sindri started to say as he looked back, but before he could finish, he was knocked off his feet by a charging pile of ceramite. Sindri struggled to his feet and watched in disbelief as the crumbling wall of the temple - and the cultists hacking away at it – flew apart, and six Marines charged into the building.

    Another wave of spore-laden smog wafted over the trenches, and Guardsman Allidus prayed to the Emperor that he had fixed his gasmask tightly. For weeks massed swarms of chitinous creatures assaulted the Imperial lines. The tyranid had come to this planet to feed, and this meager lot of humanity was the only thing standing in its way. They would not be for long. Guardsman Donic had called the alien horde “an unstoppable force”. Donic received a bolt round to the head from the Commissar for that remark.

    Allidus fit the magazine into his lasgun and prepared to die when a call rang out along the lines. Eventually the news reached their post. “A space marine! One of the Emperor’s angels!” the messenger blurted excitedly as he made his way through the dugout trench. Allidus’ pulse quickened. A space marine? Here?
    Perhaps there was hope for them after all. But only one?

    Lifting his head as high as he dared, Allidus peaked over the earthworks to the battlefield. There strode a lone space marine, seemingly oblivious to the carnage around him. He was a massive thing, a slab of gunmetal armour encasing his superhuman form. It was pitted and dented from what seemed like a million strikes. Stabbing claws and grabbing hands worked at him, but he marched ever forward, plowing through the horde like a wedge. Xenos that got caught in his way were simply trampled into paste; quick, precise bursts of bolter fire were casually aimed and let loose. Hundreds of the monsters fell.

    Allidus had never seen such a thing in his life. A momentous cheer rose from the guard lines. It seemed like this lone space marine would win the day. The celebration was premature, however. All the boisterous laughter died away as a massive monster, larger than the rest, rose from the seething mass. It dwarfed the space marine, and brandished its menacing claws and dripping biological weapons. Allidus had heard of this beast.; the hive tyrant, the leader of the swarm. With a deafening screech it charged toward the space marine, and with blinding speed it snatched him in its jaws, and swallowed him whole.

    Men began to flee. Lasguns were thrown aside. The Commissar fired his bolt pistol into the backs of the deserters until he ran out of ammo, and was overrun by the tyranid. Allidus looked on in dismay. They had come so close. The huge hive tyrant bellowed again, as if boasting of its victory. On and on it roared, until the pitch began to change into a gurgling bellow, and then a pained scream. The monster doubled over, and began to retch ichors from its maw, all the while screaming and screaming.

    Allidus watched in horror as the stomach of the monster began to split and tear. Taut sinew and meter thick chitin was rent open from the inside. The sound of tearing flesh and animalistic screams reached a crescendo, and the hive tyrant’s stomach exploded in a wave of gore. Out of the ragged red hole strode the space marine, covered in innards. Without even stopping to brush away the viscera the marine continued on in the direction he was traveling. Allidus’ jaw hung open, his mind unable to make sense of the spectacle he just saw. With the psychic direction of the hive tyrant severed the remaining tyranid milled aimlessly on the battlefield. A torrent of bolter fire from guard reinforcements made short work of them.

    “An amazing sight, isn’t it lad?” a gruff voice called from behind. There stood Lord General Titian, resplendent in his golden armour, but a good deal less impressive to Allidus than he had been before the battle. “Aye, my Lord. Did you summon the space marines to aid us?” The general laughed, and slowly nodded his head. “I’m afraid not my lad. That was a Partinax Marine….an Obstinate Marine. He was spotted in the sector a week ago. I doubt he even knew there was a war raging on this world. Regardless, he has saved us this day.”

    Allidus stared at his commander. He stared at the broken and mutilated bodies the marine had casually left in his wake. Finally. He watched the form of the hulking warrior fade off into the distance, silhouetted by the sun, ever marching.

    Still they sound like Iron Hand successors. There was one piece of fluff where Irons Hand arrive at the rebellious planet only to witness huge Warp portal opening, guess what they do? They perform near suicidal extra focused spearhead attack against the portal. Sounds something Astartes Chapter #1298 would do.
    They just use pit stop drop pods. Inside of them looks like similar to the chamber in Starcraft 2 intro only with tech priest and servitors instead of robotic arms.

    “No! The Key! We must protect it!” Bale roared, running after the Astartes. Inside was bedlam, as cultists poured in after the running Marines, who had barely even slowed down after running through the wall. The assembled cultists sent a stream of poorly-aimed lasbolts after the running men, but it was no use. Before Bale and Sindri’s horrified eyes, the Astartes leading the charge ran up to the slow-levitating Key and…body-slammed it into the far wall with an echoing CRUNCH. As one, the cultists screamed and bolted, dropping their weapons. The two Alpha Legionnaires stood aghast as the Marines brushed themselves off and looked around themselves, as if only then noticing where they were.
    “Well, I think we’re done here,” the one who had destroyed the Key said to the others, eliciting a chorus of “yeah,” “uh huh,” and “job well done.”
    “YOU WAIT JUST ONE DAMN MINUTE!” Bale roared, his warped voice echoing through the building. He charged forward, swigning his scythe with all the strength his rage and disappointment could lend him. “I AM NOT FINISHED WITH YOU, CORPSE-WORSHIPPERS!”
    “Finished?” one Marine asked of the others, shrugging.
    “Finished,” the pointman responded. They six men formed back up into the wedge they had been in before, now pointed back at the door…and through Bale.
    “I WILL RIP THE MEAT FROM YOUR CARCASSES, SPACE MAR…wait no!” Bale had time to say before the charging arrowhead of ceramite and adamantine slammed into him yet again. Sindri barely managed to jump aside before the Astartes charged through the gap they had opened, running back the way they had come. “Argh…” Bale moaned from the floor, gingerly picking himself back up. He limped over to where the flabbergasted Sorcerer was standing, and joined him in staring at the retreating Marines. “Sssssindri,” he growled, “who the fuck were they?”
    “I…have no idea,” Sindri managed.

    The Inquisitor and his two Astartes compatriots watched the scene from their hilltop perch. Isador and Angelos glared at the Inquisitor. “Chaos Space Marines? Here?” Angelos said coldly. “Funny how you didn’t stop to tell us.”
    “It was irrelevant, Captain,” Toth said warily. “This world will be swallowed by the Warp Storm regardless of your or my efforts. And now that the Astartes Partinax have destroyed the relic that would have allowed the Alpha Legion to summon the Daemon of the Maledictum, my job here is done. Forgive my earlier suspicion.”
    “Yes…”Isador said, carefully hiding his disappointment. Before Toth could expound upon his statement, the charging Marines ran back up to the pod they had ridden down in, still sitting in the crater below. Angelos gave Toth one last frigid stare before jogging down.
    “Brothers. Well done down there,” he said, gesturing at the carnage in the city. The sergeant looked him over before returning the gesture with a curt nod.
    “Thank you, Captain,” he said, tapping a red button inside the pod. A Thunderhawk Transporter swooped down in the distance, homing in on the beacon.
    “I was rather hoping that you could help us drive off the remaining xenos while the Guard evacuates the civilians, or perhaps neutralize the Chaos forces here,” Angelos said, his voice trailing off when he saw the look on the other man’s face. He knew better than to try to change a Partinax’s mind, so he changed tracks. “Let us at least help you load up your pod.”

    “Sure, thanks,” the Marine said as the Thunderhawk flew overhead, opening its cargo claws. The Blood Ravens and the Partinaxes hefted the pod into the claw and clambered aboard, leaving Toth to glare at the ship. As it lifted, and he ignored Angelos’ jaunty wave, he turned back to his own ship, flexing his power-armored hands.
    His empty hands.
    He suddenly shot bolt upright as realization hit him.
    Aboard the grey Thunderhawk, the leader of the Partinax looked over Angelos’ armament with naked envy. “Nice Daemonhammer.”
    “Thank you, brother,” Angelos said, testing the heft of the weapon. “It was a gift.”

    Obstinate Marines. Chapter #1298. They don't have a proper name, they have always been too busy to bother with one.

    They call themselves the "emperor's juggernauts", others call them the "obstinate marines".

    Their origins are shrouded in mystery. None know if they are a successor of the Iron Hands or a loyalist Alpha Legion successor; rumors abound as to both possibilities. They've always been too busy to care about clearing up the issue.

    Its pit crew immediately appears and straps more armor onto it.

    Truly ancient Obstinate Marine dreadnaughts have so much powered armor covering them that they are more like small titans than dreadnaughts. They've got 14 vehicle armor all 'round.

    And jump packs. So if their legs go down, they FLY to their destination. If their jetpacks go down, they crawl. If their arms give in, they slither.

    If they die and are totally disabled, the obstinate marines will not rest until a fallen brother is retrieved (sent on a separate mission, of course) and repaired so that it can resume its holy mission.

    Even in death, they are pig headedly stubborn bastards.

    Four titans strapped together with some kind of cathedral built on top. It's a kind of funny shape, since the Obstinate Marines only had the One titan to begin with and it was only ever added to since, whilst in motion. Have you ever tried to build a cathedral worthy of the Emperor's praise on top of a mammoth walking killing machine in motion? No. So don't go criticizing the haphazard design.

    After a few campaigns the terminator will have so much ad-hoc armor bolted/welded/strapped onto his suit that it strains even the mighty servos in the armor's joints, and therefore requires an extra boost to aid locomotion.
    So they fit a jump pack on the back. It doesn't let the suit fly, but at maximum thrust it is able to force the suit forward at a slightly increased rate. Because the armor itself is so heavy at this point, the terminator functions more like a rocket-propelled bulldozer. Like a heavily armored, oddly shaped bulldozer belching a massive wake of flame behind it as it inevitably forces itself through all obstacles by sheer force of momentum and weight.

    Then they put a hollowed out metallic asteroid on it as even more armor.

    Closer. Living marines are fitted into the combat ready shells before a battle. Often times, enemy ships seem to find themselves boarded and fighting a losing battle after one or two salvos from the marines fleet. Thankfully, this seems to be all that the Juggernaughts can muster, as their Warships never really seem to stop moving towards their objectives.

    see, the chapter functions more like the ancient mongol hordes. All facilities are on massive treads that never stop turning.

    As marines fall they are retrieved, either placed into dreadnaught armor or patched up ad-hoc on the spot.
    As vehicles are destroyed/disabled, they are merely chained to the back of the moving mech-repair bay until they can be restored to working condition or scrapped for parts.

    There are no formal plans, everything is improvised. There are half-dreadnaughts bolted onto predator chassis when their legs are blown off. There are battle bikes welded together in pairs to provide a firing platform for salvaged lascannon predator turrets. Rhino's with the top half of their hulls cut off, functioning as mobile parts-depots that trail the great caravan of medical and mechanical fortress-tanks. Land Raiders welded together to support a massive platform that mounts a salvaged macro-cannon and operates as mobile artillery.
    They are like giant, iron locusts. All materials in their path are "donated" to the cause, they leave miles-wide swaths behind them, where the earth has been strip-mined of minerals and ores by mobile mining servitors in order to feed the belly of the leviathan furnaces and mobile forges that allows the marines to maintain a fighting force without ever needing to stop. Steel, Iron, Wood, Heresy, Xeno scum, all are rolled over and through.

    Relation wise, the Blood Ravens are one of the closest chapters to the Juggernaughts. Their unique propensity to "gift" things, and the Juggernaughts habit of ignoring everything not related to their objective go hand in hand. The Blood Ravens have dedicated squads to "aid" the Juggernaughts on their missions, often holding down objectives requiring the Marines to stay put. Hand in Hand, these chapters compliment each other in battle, and form an effective fighting unit.

    They attack as a permanent existence. Lighter and faster troops and vehicles arrive first, sowing destruction and confusion, pushing past the front line into the enemy rear to continue raiding and marking resources caches.
    While the enemy scrambles to deal with the sudden overrun, the main forces appears on the horizon as a massive cloud of dust that blots out the sun. Battle brothers, terminators, dreadnaughts and heavy armor units slam into the disorganized front like a tidal wave hitting a marina. Casualties are ignored, those who run out of ammo simply abandon weapons on the spot and grab anything they can to continue their march. As this wave of death rolls over the enemy, the massive titan forges and rolling factories the size of small cities appear. These are tended by teeming multitudes of servitors and tech marines, who salvage fallen soldiers, vehicles, resources, raw ores are harvested from the bleeding earth by massive mining servitor units the size of warehouses. Noxious fumes from gargantuan war forges choke and cloud the skies as a 5 mile wide tide of mobile industry consumes all in it's path.
    They take weeks to pass, from the first scout to the last scrap-servitor, and all that is left in their wake is scorched, blasted dirt that has been churned into a bog slickened by the blood of those foolish enough to try and stop their march.

    Brother Obstinatus did not slow in his march as he continued to his next objective. An Ork encampment, a mile to the south.

    Not even when he saw another brother of the Emperor's Juggernauts in his path.

    From a distance, he called his greeting. He did not spare the time to wave his hand. Instead, he increased the speed of his stride.

    "Greetings, Brother Contumacious!"

    The other marine responded in kind.

    "Greetings, Brother Obstinatus! How goes the mission?"

    "Forever undaunted, brother. You?"

    The two strode closer to one another. In a moment, they would impact one another. Neither made any change to his stride.

    "The stride is never stopped," he said, the two now almost ready to collide.

    As one, the two marines activated their jump packs and grasped, forearm to forearm.

    Sent into a dizzying spin, the two turned for a dozen rotations and released, each flying far into the distant sky, traveling in their original direction.

    As the terminator armor came crashing down into the Ork Camp, Brother Obstinatus collided with the store of Ork explosives and missiles there.

    In a moment, had he taken notice of it, he would have heard a single Nob boss see the Marine coming down from the sky and utter a single confused, "Wot?" before fire raged, and the camp was consumed in a massive inferno.

    As the flames died down, Brother Obstinatus marched away. There were other objectives to complete.

    On the horizon, on a plateau many miles from the Partinax Astartes convoy, a lone Guardsman watches the procession of steel. It had been almost four full days since the arrival of the Astartes -referred to by many as the 'Obstinate' Marines, and the assortment of mobile manufactora and battle-cathedrals seemed never-ending. Soon they would have be gone, as the battle-barges floating over the procession gathered the forces and departed.

    From his vantage point, may miles away, a tiny sliver of grey breaks off from the convoy, and streaks up into the sky leaving a powerful orange trail.

    Aboard the Thunderhawk departing from the procession, Battle-Brother Quintus grew impatient. "Brother Tractus, cannot we go faster?" He paced up and down the passenger hold like a tiger caged. "With all due respect, I cannot bear to stand around whilst our target merely -waits-". He spat 'waits' with all the revulsion in the galaxy.

    Brother Tractus sighed, doing what appeared to be a slow, on-the-spot jogging motion. "We will be there soon enough, Brother! The enemies of the Imperium shall know us by the crushing of our boots, and the stamping of our feet. Show a modicum of patience, for we will tread upon their corpses soon enough."

    The Partinax Astartes battle-cathedral procession had picked up what had appeared to be an ancient webway gate on a nearby moon, and Dozer squad had been dispatched to investigate.

    Brother Tarius woke up and found himself enclosed in a pitch-black box. Upon trying to feel his way about using his arms he discovered that he coudn't feel his arms or legs.

    His memory flashed through battle scenes, all too familiar, all consisting of him marching towards seemingly unbeatable enemy horde and smashing his way through, while hearing the enemy helplessly trying to claw their way through his thick armor.
    On his last battle, however, he was about to break the company record of longest distance advanced until he crossed paths with a stompa, who was swinging it's fist wildly at him, and then he couldn't recall anything.

    As he was digging through his memories, Tarius was suddenly brought back when an slit slid opened before his eyes, letting in blindingly light from the outside world.

    "Brother Tarius" said a tired voice from his headphones just as he had gotten used to the light and focused upon a tired face of a techmarine standing before him. The techmarine had large cup of dark caffeine in his hand, possibly the darkest he had ever seen. He looked like he'd been awake for quite a while.

    The techmarine continued:
    "You were crushed by a stompa.Luckily we managed to revive you and place you inside the body of a dreadnought."
    The techmarine took a few steps backwards as a huge hulk of seemingly randomly mashed-together ceramite plates came to life and stood up, letting steam and exhaust gasses escape from cracks in it's armor.

    It turned to face the techmarine and activated it's vox casters:

    Moving with all the frontward force in the galaxy, the Partinax Thunderhawk (with it's special forward-mounted carnifex-catcher) streaked toward the barren moon.

    The forward-mounted drop ramp of the Thunderhawk suited the Obstinate Marines well, for it allowed them to stride unstoppably into battle, even as the Thunderhawk itself tilted forward to allow the Marines to depart whilst only barely slowing down. When it was time for them to depart, the great dropship would simply scoop them back up again, to be ferried back to the Holy Procession.

    Brother Tractus continued his on-the-spot jog as a techmarine pilot yelled a message. "We are approaching the drop site, prepare for planetfall, Brother!"

    The Thunderhawk began it's tilt forward as the drop ramp lowered. The assorted Astartes (Ten in number) strode toward the opening maw as the atmosphere in the passenger hold evacuated. Even through his power armour, Brother Quintus could feel the motion of air escaping as faced the ramp - it felt good, like the universe itself inviting him to move forward, unendingly.

    As one, the marines moved forward, falling from the dropship as it tilted far enough forward to have them fall out. The marines, now walking toward the Gate's co-ordinates, watched as the Thunderhawk continued, as it would enter into a steady orbit where it would remain, moving constantly, until the Marines had completed their mission.

    Brother Tractus activated his vox transmitter. "In the name of the Emperor, let none stand in our way!"

    High above, wreathed in cloaking fields and warp shields, a Chaos battlecruiser, the Temptation of Hedony, sat menacingly, like a predator about to strike.

    This particular ship belonged to a Slaaneshi cult that had decided to appease their foul god by finding a way to assault the Eldar directly, with the purpose of allowing Slaanesh to feast upon the Eldar souls. They had been monitoring the Astartes' movements, hoping the procession would move on and out of the system without detecting the ancient, abandoned Webway Gate. This having failed, a group of fallen Marines moved into drop pods. The plan was to land ahead of the Astartes' squad, and have two squads hold them back whilst at third squad -bearing with them a powerful sorceror- secured the Webway Gate with a portal into the warp.

    Brother Quintus observed the horizon, scanning for any threats, anything hiding in the many craters that pockmarked the landscape. The only sounds were the muffled thumps of his power armour across the landscape, the airless moon allowing no sound to cross. The starry sky above was the epitome of beauty - many other lifeforms, even other Marines, may have marvelled at the exquisite view of the sector, but such trivialities held no such interest for a Partinax Astartes. There was only the Objective. Nothing else mattered. The Emperor himself would guide their boots to the target, and let nothing stand in the way.

    Something caught the Brother's eye, however, as nine flecks of light appeared on the horizon. A meteor storm? He wondered for a moment - but no, there was no atmosphere here. Nothing would burn up. That meant only one thing, that these were the retro-rockets of orbital insertion pods.

    A wave of disgust and horror washed over him, and he realised - the taint of chaos was visiting this world. Even worse, they would arrive at the target before the Astartes did.
    Still, no matter. They were the Juggernauts, the Emperor's Unstoppable.

    The chaos marines deployed barely a hundred feet from the buried Webway Gate, the ancient wraithbone poking from the silver dust that covered the moon.

    Twenty of Slaneesh's chosen, those marines who had given themselves to the worship of the depraved god of Pleasure, were to form a line and engage the incoming Astartes.
    The oldest among them, the marine formerly known as Brother Princus, was uneasy, however.
    The Astartes surely would have noticed their insertion, would have picked them up on their Auspexes, however the marine squad had made no change of movement, they did not fan out, or prepare to engage, they simply continued their advance as if the chaos marines were not even there. Something about it seemed very wrong to the fallen brother, but he pushed his doubts aside.

    Brothers Tractus, Quintus, Perambulus and the seven other Astartes watched with mild amusement as the Slaaneshi marines formed a line, ten men wide and two deep.

    Quintus hefted his bolt pistol, bearing in his other hand a power fist, with a large sheet of metal resembling a storm shield mounted to his wrist. Unusual equipment for a marine, but it was perfectly suited to the Partinax's advance tactic.

    "Brothers, to arms! CHAAAAARGE!" He screamed, as he felt his blood almost boil with the anticipation of the coming run. Two-and-a-half tonnes of power armour began to shift into high gear, the improved locomotors and tiny but powerful boosters accelerated the armour to an almost twenty-MPH run.

    The Partinax Astartes charging, the marine formerly known as brother Princus steeled himself for the battle coming. Were they mad? He wondered, charging straight into bolter fire? He levelled his weapon and began firing, as his compatriots did the same.

    The Astartes closed, bolter-arm held straight, firing round after round into the Chaos line. incoming fire impacted their armour over and over again, the reinforced metal shrieking at the impacts, and the trenches they carved across it.

    As the marines hit the chaos line, brother Quintus brought his power fist straight into the oversized custom codpeice of the marine formerly known as brother Princus, lifting him clean off of the ground, Quintus not even slowing as the two-tonne chaos marine was lifted by the fist to the crotch.

    The half-daemon marine screamed in anguish as he was carried, Quintus lowering his arm to let the recently-sterilized Slaanesh-worshipper fall to the ground. Similar fates befell the other chaos marines as the Astartes hit with the force of a steel tsunami.

    Simple. They continue to march forward. The only way to avoid getting crushed is to either move out of their way - or they give you permission to march ahead of them.

    March long enough, and eventually the techpriests will begin the initiation rites. Fail to march, and they will trample you.

    The trial is never stopping, never sleeping. The geneseed is administered on the march. Learning their skills is done by being given objectives and completing them in the line of fire. Scouts are given an eternal objective - scout ahead of the line of march. Provide information to command so it can determine objectives.

    Thus, a new marine is trained. As time goes on, more and more armor will be bolted to him. He will become a tactical marine, and slow his march due to the extra burden of weight so that he falls in with the great wedge.

    As years pass, he has armor added so that he becomes a terminator.

    When he falls, he becomes a dreadnaught.

    When the dreadnaught falls, it becomes a vehicle; part of the great convoy that keeps their eternal crusade striding forward.

    When the vehicles fall, the scrap is added to the fortress monastery as extra armor. The body of the marine is stuffed into a macrocannon shell and shot into space, never to stop.

    The stride continues forever.

    tried to give a 2nd go at designing Juggernaut Marine's patterned armour,now with harnesses that make them go fast,without the jump pack though.

    the reason they can afford to do this is because their tech priests have developed armour far more effective than normal power armour. They haven't shared the info because it's a waste of time

    I also have this great image of a Obstinate Marine marching forward with an enemy stuck on his wrist where he has punched right through and not bothered to remove it

    >stomping them to death

    Obstinate Marines are the only chapter besides Angry Marines that use Power Boots

    Hey guys,

    I can't believe noone has mentioned this...

    What if,

    What if, in all their long march,

    What if they finally found The Immovable Object?
    >> Anonymous 09/19/11(Mon)17:08 No.16355017
    Yes, but they use Power Boots to insure they never stop walking, rather than as weapons.

    That would be a C'tan, methinks.

    The object itself will not move aside, so the Astartes Partinax merely proceeds through or over the object.

    They >do< stop. Only out of combat, long enough to load into their ships and fly to their next objective.

    Unless their librarians teleport the ENTIRE to a new objective...

    I was going to start marines. Now I will start these marines. I will assume objective = reach enemy side of table. Just march onward. Maximum terminator usage.
