Alright motherfuckers. You like Spess Mahreens. I like Spess Mahreens. We all fucking like Spess Mahreens. So let's pop open Rites of Battle and kill some time in honor of Honor the Chapter.Roll 1d10 for the reason our Spess Mahreens were founded.
rolled 5 = 5Glory.
rolled 4 = 4Why not
rolled 79 = 79Orks.
>>20130917We were founded as a counter to something. We'll figure that bit out once we get to rolling for enemies. In otherwords, our Spess Mahreens are really good at punching in the faces of one specific enemy. But when the hell did we start doing that?Roll 1d100.

Constantly on guard against our own geneseed becoming like that of our predecessors, yet suffering it's effects none the less.Deep.Alright. Roll 1d100 for our characteristic modifiers.

It means we looove close combat, and feel that no honor can be gained in combat outside of ripping our foes spines out their back, and beating them to death with it.>>20131230That we fucking are. Hell, we might as well say we got our geneseed from them. One of our Chapter Masters gets the honor. He accomplished his deeds 6000 years ago, and yet we still remember him, and hold him second to none among our chapter.Roll 1d100 for why we love this fucker so much.

>>20131321That it is. We're some pretty fucking hardcore sons of bitches.>>20131299Alright. This motherfucker is DEFINITELY the hardest of the hardcore motherfuckers. Why? He took on a Daemon Prince. One on one. Hand to hand. And he kicked it's ass five ways from Sunday. He nearly died doing it, his body was wrecked in the process, and he was shoved inside a drednaught as EVERYBODY was pretty much saying "This motherfucker needs to stick around." As such, he technically remains our Chapter Master to this very day, but in reality, the Captain of the Second Company runs shit, and leads the 1st as well. Still, we occasionally wake our Chapter Master up, sorta like Bjorn, but instead of bitches and booze, he gets blood and guts.What sort of world do we have our fortress monastery on? Roll 1d100 to find out.
>>20131383That looks like a Reasonable Grey Knight....damn oxymorotic, uh?>>20130917I want the sauce of this.

rolled 40 = 40>>20131507airless for god's sake
>>20131479Nah. We suffer the Black Rage as bad as our predecessor does. Likely we lose a nice sized chunk of our chapter to it. And trust me, killing a daemon prince and surviving, albeit in a drednaught, has been done before.

>>20131602Stewardship. I'm pretty sure a nice chunk of the population is pretty damn grudging to us, but symbolically, we rule our little Jungle Hive World, while in reality we let the Nobles do whatever the fuck they want to.Alright, moment of truth: How close do we follow the Codex Astartes (Which names this maneuver Roll 1d10)

>>20131676You know what, FUCK IT. I'm going to make it an official policy in these that 10's are ALWAYS taken. At least in mine. Makes shit interesting.Alright. We pretty much use it as toilet paper.

We cannibalize our foes, take heads as trophies, and do other things to make us the scariest motherfuckers ever. Then we send in the Death Companies, just for some extra pants shitting fear.Roll 3d100 for Solo, Offensive, and Defensive modes.
rolled 25, 15, 44 = 84What are we gonna get this time?
>>20131811Solo Mode first. We get the Flesh Tearer's, as it's pretty damn obvious now we're of their geneseed.A TASTE FOR BLOODAction: Free ActionRequired Rank: 1Effects: Even newly recruited Flesh Tearers must learn to turn their Chapter’s flaws to their advantage and can tap into the hunger of the Red Thirst to fuel their attacks against their enemies. This can give the Battle-Brother a burst of vigor once he has smelled the blood of his foe, allowing him to throw himself into combat with more strength and speed than normal. When the Battle-Brother makes a Charge Action against a foe which has been bloodied (i.e. has suffered at least a single wound) he adds 5m to his charge distance and gains an additional +10 to his Weapon Skill Test in addition to the normal benefits for charging.Improvement: At Rank 4 the Battle-Brother becomes more adept at channelling his rage and adds +2 to any Damage rolls made during the turn he charges. At Rank 7 the Battle - Brother is even swifter to attack once he senses the blood of his prey and adds 7m to his charge distance.
rolled 45 = 45>>20131802>Cannibalize xenos>Cannibalize
>>20131878Nits. Don't pick them.
>>20131858Here's Offensive mode, also Flesh Tearers.RECKLESS ASSAULTAction: Free ActionCost: 2Sustained: YesEffects: The Flesh Tearers are well known for their bloodthirsty assaults and the heedless brutality with which they throw themselves at their foes. Battle-Brothers of the Chapter are well schooled in such vicious attacks, which often disregardthe more prudent and considered assaults as laid out by the Codex Astartes. When the Battle-Brother and other members of his Kill-team within Support Range make a Charge Action they may choose for it to be a Reckless Assault. A Reckless Assault follows all the normal rules for Charging (as described on page 238 of the DEATHWATCH Core Rulebook), however, if he managed to kill his foe with his Charge attack he may immediately make another Charge Action as a Free Action provided there is another foe within charge range. A Battle-Brother may only make one additional charge as part of a Reckless Assault even if he manages to also slay his second foe with his attack. The drawback of making a Reckless Assault is that the Battle-Brother completely ignores any kind of defence against his foes and as a result loses his Reaction for that turn.Improvement: At Rank 4 the Battle-Brother increases his chance to hit when Charging by +10, this is in addition to the normal bonus to Weapon Skill for charging. At Rank 7 the Battle-Brother adds an additional 1d10 to Damage for the first attack made during a charge.
rolled 91 = 91>>20131858The fuck, that's World Eaters stuff
>>20131878Eat our foes then.>>20131912And our defensive, from Rites of Battle.COURAGE UNDER FIREAction: Free ActionCost: 0Sustained: NoThe Battle-Brother inspires those under his command to press on in the face of danger. When this ability is used, the Battle-Brother and any within Support Range of him may immediately recover from being Pinned. At Rank 4, those under the effect of this ability may also make a Half-Move as a Free Action.Alright. Roll 1d100 for what we can't have. Ignoring results of 21-40, as these dudes not having Assault Marines is pretty stupid.

We're not as bad off as the Flesh Tearer's yet, but it's getting bad. Also, I suggest we take the Flesh Tearers psychic powers and Curse of the Primarch, if you want to play this chapter in an actual Deathwatch Game. It fits us well.Roll 1d100 for our OBVIOUSLY NOT KHORNATE NO SIR Chapters friends
>>20132190Yes but they aren't used because that's basically what assault cannons are.I was thinking a weapon made up of like six Bolters on a stick because I was being stupid.

>>20132301How about bolters with chainsaw bayonets?
what we're coming up with names now?HATE QUETZALS
>>20132337All right, name, we need a name. Heart Rippers?
>Over 9000 hours in photoshop
Umbra Pattern bolters can have chainsaw bayonets.Also, with the name chart having "Obsidian" and "Jaguars" as options, maybe we should pick one of them, and then roll on the other chart?
>>20132381Heart Eaters, maybe? You ARE cannibals, after all.
rolled 71 = 71>>20132400That could work. >>20132398Let's give it a shot then. Taking Obsidion and rolling on the second chart.
How about chainswords with bolters bayonets

Smoking Mirror was the Aztec name for obsidian, but that doesn't really represent our bloodlust enough.Maybe something involving the sun, like their world's star is special in some way. Probably something to do with the warp, I dunno.
>>20132440Emperors Jaguars. The utter fuck?Anyway, I'm partial to Heart Eaters myself. Fits us well, we're Blood Angels successors through the Flesh Tearers, it fits.

rolled 74 = 74Can't we be the Jaguar Hornets?
>>20132490That sounds good and not a joke.Lot of good name ideas going on in here.
I'd suggest Star Devourers, but that might be too khornate.Other options:Red HandsObsidian Skulls
>>20132444how about Flesh Tearers?
I don't have my RoB in front of me, but if we stuck with the Aztec theme I think 'Sun Jaguars' would be pretty appropriate.
Sanguine DawnWait, this sounds familiar.
Bloody Blood Connoisseurs
According to the book, Blood Angels successors often swap the order around.So you could have the Jaguars Red, or something.
I like "Blood Jaguars"
>>20132654Or "obsidian Tearers" for both thematics and lineage
>>20132654How about we just go with this for the time being.
This is hilariously close, because the Aztecs were also paranoid about sinners (of a sort) corrupting their villages, and were quick to put such offenders to the sword, or in some cases they did it to themselves sudoku style.
>>20132651Oooh, how about Obsidian Blades/Blades Obsidian.Gets over their love of hand to hand fighting.(Also, according to forge world, Salamanders use obsidian blades in their chainswords)
>>20132711sounds good to me.
Shall we get to making specific troops for the Blood Jaguars?
Right, Blood Jaguars is good.
>>20132723Blades Obsidian sounds pretty awesome to me.
Paint scheme neededRed, orange/yellow and black?
>>20132733Alright, first off, we have a Death Company. That isn't changing. We have no devastators. Perhaps the role falls to our tactical squads? Larger magazine capacity Bolters, that sort of thing? Our Librarians are pretty standard, if a bit more shamanistic. Same with our Chaplains. Our scouts are likely more close combat oriented than other chapters.
>>20132733One of our unique hero units should be some 40k take on the Maya Hero Twins.

>>20132851See>>20132398They're on Umbra Pattern Bolters.
>>20132808A good idea. Though I think that if we must be married to the red and black scheme then black should be the primary color. Both to better fit the 'Jaguar' part of the name and because I'm sick of BA chapters being all red.
>>20132851Doesn't mean loyalists can't use them.And really, we are pretty fucking heretical as it is.
>>20132847That pun is so stupid it must be put in.
Well, for gold there's always the sanguinary guard.

>>20132963How do people make these?Is it a program?
>>20132997Good point. They probably wouldn't be a good foe for these marines.
We need more gold, you fucking fags.
>>20133007THIS. With feather-decorated death masks.
>>20133007That I actually like. Our Death Company being green, having skeletal helms, bones on their armor, perhaps human skin they've flayed off themselves as robes?
>>20133007Nice idea.the death compamy warcry is "BR?BR?HUEHUEHUEHUEHUE!!!!"
More green and gold.
>>20133048Make the helms skeletal, feathered, and BOOM. Death Company.
>>20133018http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/smpbeta.phpHere you go, D. Have fun.
>>20133048FUCKING THISI can almost hear the war drums the Chaplains are playing as they sacrifice xenos on a battle-alter to the twin god aspects of the emperor
>>20133048Ugh that's horribleLooks like Australian marines IMO.Better than the red/black though
>>20133048I don't know if gold needs to be one of our power armor colors. Can't we just be bedecked in gold finery? That won't show up on B&C of course, but it's how I'd imagine it.
>>20133071...I want to see this.
>>20133048>>20133048Hmm, colors are good, but -reverse the pauldrons-green legs-green head, only faceplate is gold-chestplate is gold-hands are red-eyes brilliant blue or yellowshould look better imo. maybe a ore orangeish gold?
Kinda quick and rough, not sure exactly what people wanted.
>>20133098The whole chapter carries ceremonial daggers for taking the hearts of their enemies, and routinely ritualy devour their hearts. Gotta love that omophagea...
>>20133100Comes out as this.I don't think it works -- the colors start clashing too badly.
>>20133121Less black, more gold, maybe make the red a little darker.
>>20133100You have shit taste in colors, my friend.
>>20133121I like this for our basic color scheme.>>20133141I like it. I really like it. It's probably left behind though when the brother joins the Deathwatch, as part of a ceremony to symbolically cutting his ties with his brothers. Or we could use it as our chapter trapping. +5 to Willpower, and Weapon Skill if a heart is taken with it during a mission, and -10 Fellowship with non Blood Angels due to the grisly ritual?
>>20133121At least one of the hands should be red. Carving out hearts is messy business.
>>20133207Add in teeth filed to sharp points. They don't drink blood like other BA chapters. They literally devour their vanquished foes in orgiastic post-battle blood-letting ceremonies. Wounded prisoners are used specifically for the purpose, which actually acts as a kind of improvised mass-interrogation.
>>20133224That could be a rank insignia of chaplains
>>20133121What about orange or green in place of all that black?
>>20133207Doesn't seem very grisly to me. Unless they also eat the bloody thing.Would really suck on enemies with multiple hearts though. Or hell, really big hearts. I'd hate to see these guys fighting nids. A carnifexes heart is probably half the size of a marine themselves.
Moar goldRed hands/feet
>>20133250That's a pretty good idea. Death Company Chaplains should get both hands red perhaps?>>20133241Well, they eat the hearts anyway, after sacrificing the wounded to the Emperor. So teeth filed to sharp points works. +5 to all Intimidate tests?
Okay, I now kind of imagine their hive temple-cities being massive step pyramids, where any pre-teen boy can attempt to scale the outside, fighting their way to the top, pushing rivals down into the endless jungle to die, with those who make it to the top alive judged worthy of joining the Bloody Jaguars.
Why be red in our colour scheme? Let's be primarily Gold, with some black details, some yellow, some white, maybe blue... Why fake the colour of what they're all gonna be covered in anyway, once the melee starts?
>>20133270I was thinking they also eat the heart.
Can we switch out gold for bronze, and see how that'd look?
>>20133300I like it.The space marine temple is separate from the city, possibly by miles.Those that are recruited are only told. After that, they have to get to them.By any way possible.>>20133317This is a good point. We would basically be pointlessly coloring.Unless they have a love for the color of blood, and want to see it without opening a few bodies.... they need to paint their armor with blood before combat.
>>20133335Go right ahead if you want.
>>20133337The sky, the clouds. Important things, although less so than the sun.
Okay, so our chapter master's a dread (probably a furioso, since that's the blood angel equivilent of a venerable dread).But the rest of the chapter probably also uses regular dreadnoughts, to replace devastator squads.With the chapter master entombed, the Chapter is probably also led in its day to day activities by the Reclusiarch.
Also WHERE is their home planet?Any specific thoughts where it should be?
Atop the nearby hillside, three chaplains it, cross-legged as they beat on their xenos and heretic-skin war drums. A lone Tau prisoner is chained to a hastily-carved slab of rock, and standing over him, helmet removed is the chief chaplain. He chants in an ancient, obscure and harsh tribal tongue as he holds a jade dagger over his head, both hands claspng the hilt. As his volume increases, at the bottom of the hill two dozen Blood Jaguars stand between and amongst countless wounded and mutilated Tau and traitor human prisoners, bound with ropes.As the ceremony reaches its climax, with a roar of animal fury the chaplain hacks open the Tau's torso and rips out its heart. He holds it aloft and bellows at the marines below, who join in in a deafening cacophony. As he frenziedly devours the still beating heart, the marines below fall upon the prisoners. They scream in pain as terror as their limbs are torn off, mouthfuls of flesh are bitten out of them and their torsos are ripped open... with bare hands. The blood-drenched astartes do not stop until their appetites are sated, and they sit or stagger, gorged, among the eviscerated corpses of their foes.
>>20133395Lets see... somewhere on the edge of the Imperium about M37 or so.
So much for Space wolves being the most brutal ans savage chapter.
>>20133440Nah, that would have gone to the Flesh Tearers. We're decended from them. So we're pretty much on the same level.
Terracotta theme, might see about adding some Aztec-style patterns in photoshop.
>>20133423Sit. Three chaplains sit. Fuck's sake, my hands are too big for this stupid keyboard.
what about this
>>20133514Take off the red hands, and I think we have our Death Company scheme.
So;>>20133472Our main scheme>>20133514Our death company
>>20133523...how do I go back from the wargear screen without resetting everything?
>>20133472I can see some parts of the backpack being coloured like an Aztec feather head-dress.Heey, how about having a ritual that involves hunting down some prehistoric beast of a bird (or even a dinosaur, since they're thought to have had feathers in many cases), and killing it using only what you can find and manifacture in the jungle? And when you return, its feathers are added to your armor. Jutting from between your backpack and your main armor? Forever showing what area you're from, how badass a hunter you were etc..
>>20133540I think it's pretty good.>>20133547That would be pretty interesting.
>>20133547Add in a large skull for the monster xenos-jaguar thing that you killed with a flint knife.
>>20133523Which is brilliant, because when the enemy looks at these guys, they're not going to expect them to be the bloody jaguars.And when an Imperial General impudently demands to see who's in charge, and gets taken into the depths of their battle barge to meet the Chapter Master..."WHY HAVE I BEEN AWAKENED FROM MY SLUMBER? HAVE OUR ENEMIES COME?""No, honoured Chapter Master. This... man, has demanded your attention.""THEN LET HIM SPEAK""... um... I was wanting to know when your forces were deploying... my lord"
>>20133572I'd say that they'd probably do the same thing with the Chapter Master (Who still needs a name) that the Space Wolves do with Bjorn. They only wake him for emergencies, or every century or so to tell him the state of the chapter.
Chapter Master Xipet T'otec rests inside a solid gold (and adamantium) sarcophagus, that spends most of its time adorning the Reclusiam on the Alter, the Jaguar's main Battle Barge. Only when he enters battle is the sarcophagus loaded into a massive custom Dreadnought frame, adorned with feathers and jaguar skins and armed with a pair of massive blood-red Dreadnought-scale lightning claws.
>>20133569Oh shit. Dude is sent out into the jungle with no equipment or clothing, and returns later. Maybe in a matter of days, if you're lucky or lazy, maybe months later if you're unlucky or an absolute hardass who isn't content with anything but the biggest, fiercest beasts of the darkest jungles. Loincloth of a giant tiger, on your head the clean skull of your chosen prey, with a colourful plumage, stained in blood, tied to your back. The heart of your prey wrapped in leaves, straight from the source (you literally aren't allowed to rest or linger after aquiring it), still wielding the weapon used, if any.Initiation rite, festival game, peace-time training? You decide.
>>20133617Okay, so who are our important people?>>20133641Training, fun and rank up thing that I can't remember what people call it.
>>20133638Carved into the fromt of the sarcophagus is an aztec-style representation of the chapter master in his glory days, arms cross over his chest in a state of repose, his face covered with a death mask
>>20133617Makes sense, and is even better.Imagine demanding to see the Chapter Master, and being told he's sleeping."When will he wake up?""When it is time"
>>20133617Why not putting big ass space Smilodons as pets, in a Space Wolves fashion?
>>20133641Initiation before you can join a scout squad
Wait, we 'specifically go against' the Codex Astartes.What the fuck us our setup, then?
>>20133657Important: Death Company Chaplain AKA The Only Motherfucker Crazy Enough To Go Into Battle With Them, Reclusiarch, Chapter Master, Second Company Captain (Who is pretty much the Chapter Master when the Chapter Master is sleeping.) Oh. And the Head Apothecary and Librarian.
>>20133641The ritual is known as 'Walking the Black Road', and 50% of all initiates sent out come back requiring reconstructive surgery, or not at all.
>>20133712No devs. NONE WHAT SO EVER. CQC Scouts. Tacticals with Huge Ass Bolter Mags. And Chainsaw Bayonets. Assault Squads ERRYWHERE, and Death Company spearheading assaults for maximum terror. That sort of thing.
>>20133741Why not "Road to the Sun"?
I guess I'm too late for the naming. But I think "Obsidian Lords" sounds perfectly badass. The whole blood/animal thing is a little overdone.Seems like quite the badass chapter. Would they find a place in the Deathwatch?
>>20133741>>20133783Compromise!The Black Road to the Sun.
I imagine that these fellas have an unusually high Khorne turnouts, so how are those that turn (call them Icarus?) handled? Surely, more bloodthirst seems a bad idea, unless it's to show that greater bloodthirst can exist without taint. Or what about some kind of rite involving hypnotic drums and rhythmic ritualistic war-dances designed to confuse and humble those tainted by Chaos?
>>20133720Chapter Master: Xipet T'otecDeath Company Chaplain: HuitziloReclusiarch: Teylaloc2nd Company Captain: XibalbaChief Librarian: Co'atl ZalquetHead Apothecary: Virac O'cha
>>20133818I can dig it.>>20133846Designed to trick one to an altar. A kind of shown respect towards the tainted former brother - they have to die, but are allowed to reach the Altar on their own, even if they don't know they're heading there.
>>20133855Master Huitzilo, as Death Company Chaplain holds the title 'Master of the Smoking Mirror'
>>20133880The altar is the one where the Xipet is enshrined.I think he would be pleased at that.
>>20133956Don't we need a special group/squadron that rarely leaves the capital for this? It's no good if everyone knows that tainted former brothers are led to the Altar. We need combat-ready specialist priests that tend to the rituals in the most sacred places, where even the highest ranking officers have no power.
If I killed the thread, I apologize.
Do our Psykers use Blood in order to manipulate the warp?
Let's compile what we have about our chapter so far.I started to just copy Winters posts, but then I realised it would be too much to post.
Well, no wonder these guys are below strength if they keep having to root out khornite taint.Especially if they're sacrificed in gladitorial combat like a lot of aztecs.Chained to a post, given non-functioning weapons (the aztecs used to give them Macuahuitls with feathers instead of obsidian blades), and fought to the death.
Can't we drop the Khorne stuff? It doesn't feel right. That's what the Death Company is for. You go so far into the bloodlust that you never come back.Is someone gonna wikify this shit? I'd hate to lose it.
>>20134383Not THAT frequent. But compared to the average Marine, the chance should be significantly higher.
>>20134383I will if no one else does.I'll put it on 1d4chan.What will our chapter symbol be?
>>20134429Probably a generic jaguar head, Rites of battle has a few cat-head designs.
>>20134429Are people in agreement over how this has turned out? We seem to have lost most posters.
>>20134446In front of a shining sun?
>>20134453I like it well enough.And not all chapters have to be 'I LOVE it' incarnate.
MSPaint, 9000 hours, etc..Want to add feathers but it's not easy to match the art style.
>>20134485We can try to persuade a drawfag to make something when one shows up. There's no standard length, colour or shape of the feathers, anyway.
>>20134532I'm a bit of a perfectionist, if I were going to see this through then it would involve me drawing the Space Marine template from scratch. Which I'm far too lazy to do.
>>20134574High demands on what you do but no actual drive to do anything?
>>20134485This is awesome. Naturally a few bits and pieces to finish it, but this cool.
>>20134460Yes.>>20133855I like it.>>20134162I'll get to work on that.
>>20134727Sweet.Uh, what did we decide to call them, anyway?
>>20134830Working name is currently Blood Jaguars.I believe we've indirectly decided to make it official by now.
>>20134727Remember that the Chapter Master was place in the Dreadnought after fighting a Daemon Prince of Khorne 1-on-1. It skinned him alive, and yet he killed it anyway.
The Blood Jaguars are a chapter with a history of violence. One could in fact say that it is their geneseed itself that contributed to what they are today. Founded in M34, to specifically fight Orks, and parented by the infamous Flesh Tearers, they like their predecessor, suffer from the Black Rage at a higher rate than other Blood Angels successors. An attempt to correct this was made in their founding, but failed to prevent the Red Thirst and Black Rage from occurring at the same level as the rest of the Blood Angels successors. In fact, it may have made the Red Thirst even worse, if whispered rumors hold true.Stranded by a warp storm from the rest of the Imperium for 2000 years, the Blood Jaguars emerged entirely divergent from the Codex. Gone were the Devestator squads, and in came chain bladed bolters, scout squads ripping apart Orks in frenzied close combat, and a Death Company whose acts of terror cause entire cities to commit suicide rather than face them. Suspected of Khornate worship on multiple occasions though never found tainted outside of Battle Brothers whom they kill themselves, the Blood Jaguars have a rocky relationship with the rest of the Adeptus Astartes and Inquisition. Despite this, the Chapter still seconds Brothers to the Deathwatch, though the eye of suspicion never leaves them.The Blood Jaguars homeworld, Tenocit, is a jungled hive world, notorious for it's massive felinid predators, and large avian carnivores. Recruits are trained in the harsh jungles, expected to fight and kill predators with little more than stone knives they craft themselves and carry with them for the rest of their time with the chapter.How is this so far?
I was thinking that, I saw a documentary awhile back. It was about a guy who used a crossbow, with a line attached to the bolts, to create rope-lines between treetops in the Amazon rainforest, which he then climbed over on. There could be some kind of trial involving that, like surviving for a year/month without coming down from the treetops.
>>20134873>I suggested that.Fuck yeah.
It's amazing what a generator and some awesome fa/tg/uys can do. This chapter is pretty damn awesome.
>>20134727Don't forget all the crazy shit we came up with.Like Chain Sporks.>>20134952What Daemon prince should it be?Who are all of Kornes Princes?>>20134991Very good so far.Might do an attempt at some writefaggotry later.>>20135008Yes.We are an Aztec like group in a hyper hostile forest environment.We love our survival trials and games.Also, don't forget the Amazon Sororitas.Both groups recruit from Blood Games held underground.
>>20134991Almost forgot the Chapter Master.Chapter Master Xipet T'otec is a figure of legend among the Blood Jaguars. One of the first generation of recruits from Tenocit, he quickly rose through the ranks, becoming the Chapter Master in M35. Soon after, a warp incursion on their homeworld occured, and the Blood Jaguars rose to meet it. T'otec faced a Daemon Prince of Khorne in hand to hand combat, and songs are still sung by the people of Tenocit of that day. Battered, broken, and skinned alive, T'otec emerged the victor, carving out the Princes heart with his stone knife and ripping it from his body before kicking the corpse off the top of the hab spire. Inturred in a dreadnaught soon after, he still is officially the Chapter Master of the Blood Jaguars, though he has not been wakened in two centuries.
>>20134991Harsh survival- and combat-trials are favoured over years of disciplined apprenticeship, to ensure that every Blood Jaguar will be able to adapt if separated from the group. This strong emphasis on self-sufficiency, coupled with relentless drills to form an instinctive awareness of momentum, battlefield movements and where to find weaknesses in the enemy lines. Indeed, particularly zealous Jaguars will at times sacrifice themselves in displays of individual courage and bloodthirst, in order to saw terror in the hearts of opponents, creating panic and disorder where there previously were none.How's that sound?
>>20135135I mean, aside from haphazard and downright incorrect sentence structuring and grammatical errors.
>>20135135Sounds great. What page are we on?
>>20135112What was done with the heart afterward?Also would it be possible for the warp incursion to be part of the warp storm that cut them off?>>20135135I like it. It more handily explains the love of survival games.
>>20135194Page five at 331 replies.What do you want to do, captain?
>>20135200I'm assuming it faded away with the corpse.
>>20135135>This strong emphasis on self-sufficiency, coupled with relentless drills to form an instinctive awareness of momentum, battlefield movements and where to find weaknesses in the enemy lines.This makes absolutely no sense right now. I forgot to add any sort of conclusion to the statements in the beginning.>This strong emphasis on self-sufficiency is coupled with relentless squad drills to form an instinctive awareness of momentum, battlefield movements and where to find weaknesses in the enemy lines.Better, I think?
>>20135229We're good. I'll start a new one at page 7.
Actually, I just realized why we ditched Dev squads on top of being CQC nuts: They aren't that good in the close confines of a dense jungle.
>>20135299Mm, like guerilla type tactics, CQC ambushes etc. Is there an equivalent of a shotgun in 40k?
>>20135299Are you going to go with>The jungle is so dense and full of poisonous flora and dangerous fauna, so hives had to be built to safeguard the population.?And anyone else got any fluff for our other important people?
Do we have official colour schemes for the armor and the Death Company?I'd like the homeworld to be in the path of Behemoth or something and make some writefaggotry about a Tyranid infestation of the death world and all the badass shit they had to do to repel it.Also, what kind of vehicles will they favor? Dreadnoughts only? I'd like them to use bikes with chainsaws, land speeders and maybe some custom Stormraven and stormtalons for fucking up shit around the jungle
>>20135299Maybe have some more or less permanent ones stationed in the temples, and some in strategically important locations in the jungle where long-range surveillance and combat capabilities could be vital for disrupting ambushes near danger spots? Could even make these secret locations into places of pilgrimage for temple guards and Altar priests. Purification, contemplation and such?
>>20135347Yes. >>20135351That's what I'd go with.I'm assuming our Head Apothacary and Death Watch Chaplain work together a lot. Search the jungles for a plant or something that perhaps will help mitigate or even eliminate the Black Rage and Red Thirst.>>20135352We've got several in considerationGo right ahead.I'd assume they'd really not go for bikes. Too easy to get bogged down in the jungle. Dreds, landspeeders, gunships, vehicles that can just muscle through the underbrush, they'd love those. I'm also assuming that there are Orks in the jungles of their homeworld that they hunt down every once in a while.
>>20135352Hah, I just had a vision of solar-powered hang-glider squads, just waiting to swoop down and drop around the flanks of the enemy from some elevated hill.
>>20135394That sounds good.
>>20135420Orks are the ultimate prey!
>>20135420>Death Company Chaplain
Chapter HQ: A massive *active* volcano carved on the outside into the shape of a giant ziggurat. The base itself is inside the walls of the volcano in a honeycomb of tunnels, and the HQ draws power from the lava chamber below. When the volcano erupts once every few decades, access in and out of the HQ is blocked. They have to sit tight and wait.
>>20134485I vote for this for the colour scheme, it looks beast.
I quite like this one as well >>20133514Perfect Death Company. Imagine some colourful, bloodsoaked feathers on the back of that thing and bam.
D, you got the 1d4chan page up yet?Also, could someone archive the thread?>>20135485That sounds pretty cool.
>>20135564Ah sorry, not yet.I'll get on it right now.
Say, if we have frequent arena death matches AND orks around our territories, doesn't it make sense for us to have our own breeding pit with the green buggers? There's nothing quite like hands-on experience of enemy anatomy and strength before facing them in the jungles. Breeding and training pits for other beasts is a given, of course.
>>20135555Thirded. Take off the red hands though, I think that should be reserved for the chaplains.
Don't forget the ritual bloodletting and devouring of foes
Can everyone link to what's been posted they want to be included?So we can get a quick vote to what should be added.

>>20135916Alright.New thread here: >>20136043
I posted in this thread and won the roll to make them Blood Angels earlier today.I come back to work and see this thread. And I am very pleased at what I see. Very great job.Also. More glory.
