>What is this?Well, last night we set about creating the most chest-thumpingly 'MURRICAN chapter of Space Marines in all of 40k.Previous thread:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22653298/We had finished Table 1-27 (Chapter Enemies) from the Rites of Battle chapter creation rules last night, so once we have some people in here, we'll continue.
Some highlights of thread one:Approval of the Dice GodsWhen rolling for the chapter's Progenitor, three rolls came in near-simultaneously. In the order they showed up, they gave Blood Angels (Red), White Scars (White), and Ultramarines (Blue). It was at this point that we first suspected the dice gods looked favorably upon our endeavor.GIANT BALD EAGLES!When rolling for Special Equipment, the result was Bestial Companion. It was decided that they had GIANT BALD EAGLES that filled numerous rolls in the chapter, from replacing jump packs for assault marines (the eagles lift them by special handles on their backpacks), to serving as a landspeeder-equivalent.Friendship With the SalamandersColonel Zanders provided the Salamanders with a mighty feast. Since that day, they have been brothers.
You have my attention...
Welp, let's get rollin'!Skipping tables 1-28 and 1-29 because they're for if you can't come up with a name and want an "Adjective Noun" one.Custom Chapter Advance, gimme a d100!
>>22670316>Behold Our WrathSounds Murrican to me.
>>22670316Alright, their advance scheme is BEHOLD OUR WRATH!Here's the table for that, just so you can all get a look at it.
And that's it for rolling. Now we just need to work on fleshing some things out, and I'm sadly terrible at that, so I leave this in your capable hands, eloquen/tg/entlemen.

>>22670553>wrist mounted combat knivesner vod
By the Emperor, this is beautiful.
I demand that the genecode has the manliest of beards present on each and every marine.
>>22672115>beards>not mustachesBitch please, if we're going for '80s style chest-thumpingly patriotic 'MURRICA FUCK YEAH you can't beat a badass mustache.
>>22672333Because nobody talks about porn-beards. It's all about the 'stache, brother!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGuhZvO1DKg
>>22672388Fair enough. But they have to be handlebar, no exceptions.
>>22672400Indeed. Their handlebar mustaches are almost as manly as Rogal Dorn's mutton chops.
>>22670109Dont forget American Flag Bikini Sisters of Battle!
>>22670287Desert EaglesSpace LiberatorsScreaming EaglesAll I got.
>>22672420Ah yes, the Order of Our Lady of Liberty.And the Kolt Pattern Bolt Pistol. If you thought a regular bolt pistol was a doomcock, you haven't seen this fuckin' thing.And yes, it is a reference to the 1911.
>>22672420And Statue of Liberty titan.
>>22672470And Redneck PDF
>>22672470And Paul Bunyan Titan. Yes, it has an axe.The first Chapter Master must be Washin Ton.
The Abrams-Pattern Vindicator TankThe name got brought up several times in the previous thread but nobody ever suggested what would make it special. Maybe it's a Vindicator with a more powerful engine, and thus a higher top speed? Because nothing is more AMERICAN than sticking the biggest engine you can get your hands on in an automobile to make it gofast. Pic related.>>22672514Read the first thread, he was Caunotaucarius.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Town_Destroyer
just a suggestion on color scheme
>>22672514Nah, he has the name that native Americans gave Washington which basically means Devourer of Villages.
>>22672529We already have a color scheme. Its from the videos that inspired these guyshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VXUDlcr0qI&feature=youtu.behttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Nox4gwLBo
>>22672529Needs more stars and stripes.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VXUDlcr0qIhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Nox4gwLBo
>>22672538>>22672540Is that... Is that the theme from Delta Force in the background while Battle Brother Hogan strikes from the sky to fight Warboss Osama?
So i assume these guys operate in the same region of space as Amerigo Secundus
>>22672538I hadn't seen that, its awesomeDon't let anyone, not even me, try to change that scheme
>>22672581Yes. Yes it is. The second video is even better
>>22672530What we have so far.Chapter Master ConotocauriousMaster Librarian Franc LeinScout Company leader Teodor RuseveltFirst Company Captain Ronnal ReigenSecond Company (Terminator) Captain Enjrew JaxonVenerable Dreadnaught EfdeyarVenerable Dreadnaught AbrahamOther Company Captains (Which company uncertain) include Hulc Ogan, Paton, Eisen Hower, Makar Thur.
>>22672596Dont forget Rogue Trader Hancock.
>>22672633Not nearly gaudy enough
>>22672596Space Marine Patton needs to be the Master of the Armoured Companies.
>>22672656Dude, the whole COMPANY is all about tanks. Armored Assault is their Combat Doctrine.
>>22672689Not Company, Chapter. Fuck.
>>22672633>white starshow bout some Lone Stars?
>>22672679Determined through determination. Yes. America.Logic is for heretics.
>>22672596>>22672689Other Company Captains need to more American Symbols - Davy Crockett, John Wayne, Batman, etc.
>>22672689>Armored Assault is their Combat Doctrine.The only thing appropriate to express my glee is Swedish power metal about American tanks rolling through Iraq.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n96hCfLEcDE
>>22672596>Scout Company leader Teodor RuseveltBully. I trust each and every one of those Scouts is mounted on bikes and not doing unmanly things like wearing camouflage or sniping?
>>22672734THIS IS MURICAHIDIN IS FER TAU COMMUNIST PUSSIES
>>22672734Roosevelt was a damn great outdoorsman.I imagine they don't use bikes - something more like... Bull Moose. Giant mutant cyborg moose.
>>22672734Well of course. They ARE the (somehow genetically pure) bastard mixture of Blood Angels, White Scars, and Ultramarines geneseeds.
>>22672719Batman should be the head Techpriest, making totally implausible gadgets.
>>22672596You forgot Master of Sanctity Sixtus and his policing of the Moostache.
>>22672734And they wear pic related.
>>22672737So why are these guys fightin Tau? the anti-commie thing is more Amerigo Secundus, which is sort of a throwback to more classic american policy. Shouldn't these guys be going up against Chaos terrorist style cultists?
>>22670595Kandosii, vod.Also relevant to this thread. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0akddPHZlI
>>22672767They are all about camp America, so it grabs a little from everywhere.
>>22672767This is 80s America, when America was stong and before everything went to hell.
>>22672762Marine, your moostache hairs is in violations. It's not growin' beyond the corners of your mouth. POLEESE THAT MOOSTACHE!>>22672767Dude, read the first thread. Seriously it's linked in OP.
>>22672737>THIS IS MURICA>HIDIN IS FER TAU COMMUNIST PUSSIESOkay, I think that's going too far with the whole thing. The American army doesn't have a problem with using stealth, and neither do space marines (at least, for their scouts) so abandoning it is less "taking a silly idea to a silly conclusion" and more just plain ridiculousness.
>>22672777Master of Sanctity Sixtus is bros with Scout Company leader Teodor Rusevelt, as Rusevelt knows how to maintain the Moostache.
So wait, what else do we need to do?
>>22672596so who will be head Chaplin? he'd have to be someone extremely patriotic (even more so than those currently taking up other positions) with lines like "It is the AMERICAN way!" and whatnot.like a Space marine Sam Eagle
>>22672777I hear Makar Thur hisself say, you look like a bum.>>22672789Dude. This is not a serious army to represent serious America. It is every campy overly-patriotic chest-thumping 80s action movie rolled into one.
They have a unique organisation. What should it be like?
>>22672798We already have him. Master of Sanctity Sixtus.
>>22672798>Brother Chaplain Uncle Sam
>>22672789I wasnt being serious.
>>22672798All of our marines must be Beakies.
>>22672793Hey, I think that this chapter should have 13 Companies instead of the Codex 10 - to be more awesome, and for the 13 stripes/colonies.
Their Battle-Barge is called LITANY OF LIBERTY.
>>22672803>>22672822I like this idea for one. Allows for more badass captains.
>>22672822why not 50?
>>22672822I agree, If Space Wolves can have 13 companies, the Merican Marines should have them too.
>>22672822Each one should be named after the 13 colonies.
>>22672833so they have 5,000 Marines? I think the Inquisition would be somewhat suspicious of that.
Since they are a genetic chimera that includes White Scars and Blood Angels, shouldn't they inherit their bloodthirst?Actually, what is their Primarchs Curse? The Codex one from Second Founding, or one of their three ancestor's ones?
>>22672850Genetically pure, yo. The dice decreed it to be so.
>>22672846>>22672822>>22672828Probably not ostentatious enough to be the chapter banner, but I could see this as a company banner maybe?
>>22672850Instead of bloodthirst, what if they just love a good fight? Like, doesn't even have to be to the death or anything.Wait...Professional wrestling as their preferred pastime.
>yuropean space marines>they can't afford any equipment
>>22672848that never stopped the Black Templars hell they'd probably get aways with it cause each company has different State heraldry
>>22672848Yeah, I think 13 is more manageable.They could have like 50 ships in their fleet, all named after states.
>>22672868The only reason it doesn't stop the Black Templars is that they're scattered all over the galaxy, always fighting, so they're both not seen as a threat, and it's almost impossible to get a proper headcount.
>>22672866Whenever they Challenge an enemy leader, another Marine uses their vox equipment to announce the fight like a wrestling match. >IN THIS CORNER, WEIGHING TEN TONS, HIIIIIIIIVE TYRAAAANT>Chorus of boos
>>22672879Or 50 PDF regiments guarding the homeland.
so what's the average solder's disposition?outside of being extremely patriotic, which when you think about it isn't that unique when it comes to space marine chapters.
>>22672883Maybe that should be a unique quirk of Captain Hulc Ogan's company? Famed for being the most belligerent, liking to get up close and personal and punch their enemies until they explode into freedom and liberty. Sticky, chunky, oozey, red, freedom and liberty.
>>22672846The NeuhampshyresThe RoadislantersThen VourginyansThe NeuengelantersThe Nord and Sud CarlorinansThe Noveau YourkansThe GeurgansThats all I have, I'm not a yank and don't know that much about the 13 colonies (aside from an ancestor killing yanks with the British Army.)
>>22672895Perhaps the 13 Companies are all very distinctive, seeing their Company as an individual entity, with the Chapter being the sum of the Companies, rather than the Companies fractions of the Chapter.
So I assume they have some Benedict Arnold type arch traitor who fell to chaos in their history.
>>22672864How about this? As a banner sergeants carry?
>>22672907Yes, but his name is Obbummar.
>>22672918NOW DON'T START THAT SHIT AGAIN!
>>22672906in that case wouldn't the companies have HUGE rivalries with each other? the New york/Mass equivalent would probably almost come to blows at times.also i just now am imagining Space Marines with thick new york and boston accents.
>>22672907A prescient Librarian that swore himself to Tzeentch when he turned out to be a better tactician than everyone around him.
>>22672929Inter-Chapter communication problems ahoy!
>>22672929IIRC the Clans of the Iron Hands are sometimes in open conflict with eachother.
>>22672939Change we CAN believe in!
>>22672929Which kind of Boston?This kindhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75Ubs8i8fJUOr this kind?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geNMz0J9TEQ
>>22672944Boy dis crusade is one wicked pissah!
Is there a 1d4chan page for this yet?
>>22672962We haven't even named them yet, so I don't think so.
>>22672958That's an Australian.
>>22672972But what if I prefer this kind?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMxcfKp2KFE
>>22672976>wicked pissah you've never been to boston or new england in general have you?
>>22672980So New England is the Australia of America?Makes Sense.

>>22672984no that's Florida.they both consist of criminal populations.
>>22672901Nah, I don't think this works as well when we are trying to inject as much EIGHTIES into this.
>>22672990Sylvester Stallone for one of them? Favors a heavy bolter?
>>22672990Ninth Company Captain Ran Bow
>>22672990Isn't the 8th company all devastators? Also do this >>22673008 or Shwartzy.
>>22673008>>22673011It's Decided. Ran Dow with his Heavy Bolter.
>>22672990We're not sure who this man is, m'lord, but he brought his own power armor.
>>22673019Ran Bow. I fucked up.
>>22673015This already has a non-standard layout. It's more like the Space Wolves, where each company has it's own "shtick"
>>22673021Looks more kitted out for Chapter Champion than Captain.
>>22672990For Master of the forge - why not some variant on Howard Hughes?All of Starks' genius, but more crazy.
>>22673029Any place in the chapter for this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZVmtDuMxAA
>>22672990>prefereably icons of AmericaI'll just go rapid fire the list and if anyone can find a place for em the betterBabe RuthMike DitkaBill Murray Emperor Norton the 1st Al CaponeJ EdgarMacarthur those are just ones that haven't been taken yet and off the top of my head(i think some of these redone names are throwing me)
>>2267302111th Company Captain Col-bear
>>22672990Eight Company Captain MesterteiNinth Company Captain Ran BowTenth Company Captain Schwarz Negaire
>>22672990>Master of the Forge>not John Moses BrowningYa dun goof'd.
>>22673035He's planetary governor of Amerigo Secundus.
>>22673039Remember, we're looking for testosterone here. And Macarthur is already on that list. I'm thinking something ridiculous, like Captain America.
>>22673049I think the point here is to be as ridiculously overblown as possible, so throwing in superheros makes it seem more insane.
>>22673044>>22673030>>22673029I like the idea of Cold Bear more as Chapter Champion.
>>22673071I could personally go either way. He can "lead."
>>22673060Aren't they all Captain America? And we've already got a Marvel hero on the roster.What if every Captain gets an Adamantium shield?
>>22673072Make the Company Champion be a man who always takes the title of "Captain of Mericus"
Chapter Honor Guard=Secret Service?

>>22673072Since there's no Apothecary, we should replace it with "Master of Technologie" or some shit and put Batman in here. Because fuck you, we're America and we have Batman. He fills in the jobs that a Chief Apothecary is suppsed to do.
>>22673095While I LOVE the idea of Jon Paaljowns as Master of the Fleet, I think for the more ridiculous pop-culture melange we are going for here we should have Captain Kirk as Master of the Fleet.
>>22673085Ah, good point. They are ALL Captains of Mericus.
>>22673090Only if there are two named characters named Artemus Gordon and James Tiberius West.
>>22673072>Chief Apothecary - None (Healthcare is for Commies)>no apothecaries>no geneseed ever recoveredOh gawd mah sides
>>2267309511th Company Captain Muham Adalie. Punches Tau til they explode.
>>22673095Also needs Venerable Dreadnaught Ken Edie
We need to include another American Hero while we're at it: The Chuckster. Have him specialize in throwing grenades.
>>22673146>throwing grenades>not slamming/jamming them down the enemy's throat in melee combat
>>22673151Sir Kharles Barclei for 11th Company Captain man.
>>22673095Captain Kust Arr. Or Ven Dread.
>>22673151What do you think he's slamming/jamming?
I remember the Merican Marines. We were outnumbered and outgunned, and the Tau were slaughtering us by the thousand. We commendeded our souls to the Emperor and prepared to meet our fate. We would not let them take us prisoner, we knew what they would do to us. ‘reeducation camps’ where we would be brainwashed in to hating the Emperor and the Imperium. No, we would die like true soldiers of the Emperor. And then they came. The sky was lit up by streaks of red, white and blue, and suddenly they landed in the midst of the enemy like a bolt from the blue. They slaughtered the tau, smashed their tanks to scrap and drove them screaming to oblivion.I remember hearing their Master of Sanctity screaming righteous hatred as he lead his marines, and the tread of mighty dreadnoughts crushing the life out of the Tau, the long dead chapter masters within still fighting, still struggling for freedom. And freedom was what the Merican marines gave us that day. Freedom to fight again, freedom to continue to serve the Imperium. The Tau wanted to steal our freedom, but the mighty marines of Merica saved us, saved freedom and I pray to the Emperor that they will continue to do so forever.
>>22673161>having the master of the Chaos Dunk in a Loyalist chapterAre you mad?
>>22673146He should be a high ranking Chaplain who boosts the morale of troops by slammin' Tau heads. Also his presence makes everyone jam.
Found this earlier today and thought I'd post it here.Gentlemen. Behold.The God-President of Mankind!
No. No guys.11th Company Captain.Is Kurtrus Ell
>>22673182>not a Dreadnought3/10 wouldn't worship
>>22673182>SkullsThat alone makes that picture.>>22673174It's called the Chaos Dunk because its a commonly use move against Chaos. It's not as effective on Xenos as it is on Demons and heretics.
>>22673199Yeah, I like Kharles Barclei as the 11th. Maybe he just uses a weapon that he took off the corpse of a dead Chaos Marine. Even the ultramarines do that.
>>22673207>not using a basketball
>>22673207Chapter Master ConotocauriousMaster Librarian Franc LeinMaster of Armour Jorgess PatenMaster of Sanctity SixtusMaster of the Fleet Jon PaaljownsMaster of the Forge Antonius StarcChief Apothecary - None (Healthcare is for Commies)Chapter Champion Cold BearVenerable Dreadnaught EfdeyarVenerable Dreadnaught AbrahamFirst Company (Terminator) Captain Ronnal ReigenSecond Company (Terminator) Captain Enjrew JaxonThird Company Captain Hulc HoganFourth Company Captain Eisen HowerFifth Company Captain Jon Waine (given title of "Duke" by a Planet he liberated from the Tau)Sixth Company Captain Mac ArtureSeventh Company Captain Chuknor IssEight Company Captain MestereiNinth Company Captain Ran BowTenth Company Captain Schwarz NegaireEleventh Company Captain Kharles BarcleiTwelfth Company Captain Davicrok EtteThirteenth Scout Company leader Teodor Rusevelt
>>22673214Yes. A Basketball taken from the corpse of a Chaos Champion.
>>22673182What is this I don't even.Spot the hidden flag.
>>22673214A basketball he won in a game to the death against a Chaos Marine named Michaelus
>>22673220Add in Venerable Dreadnaught Jon Kennedie. "Ask not what your Chapter can do for you... ask what you can do for your Chapter"
>>22673236>Brother Captain Kharles Barclei vs. Chaos Champion MichaelusWe need a story and artwork
Man, this just seems to have become "vaguely american icons with poorly altered names: the chapter".
>>22673239Yeah, add that and it looks pretty good.
>>22673276>The joke>Your head
>>22673276It'll be cleaned up later. Things like this usually are. Let people have their fun for now.
>>22673276How are any of the people on that list only "vaguely American" by the standards of misguided patriotism, poor historical understanding and 80's intensity that we've laid out?
>>22673276This is to hammer out ideas. The finished product when it goes up on 1d4chan will be a lot more polished and read better.
Okay, so there are no Apothecaries... so how DOES the Geneseed get recovered? Do units just have dedicated "medics" to do this, or is there like a legion of Mexican Chapter Serfs that follow them around doing this?
>>22673317Medics. Compassionate ones.
>>22673317>implying any geneseeds would be lost
>>22673317>Mexican Chapter SerfOh God.The Americans complaining about the Mexicans who "took 'er seed," whilst the Mexicans are being employed to do it because no American wants to.
>>22673174Who better to dunk chaos then a master of dunking chaos?Would he basically be a librarian with some psyker stuff?
Ok, so the color scheme is all stripes, with blue and stars on the shoulder pads. Should the helmets be all white save for the mouth, which is yellow/gold?
>>22673380obviously he'd be a biomancer. Nothing is more American than drug abuse in professional sports.He could cast spells like Iron Arm to represent steroid abuse, and Lightning reflexes to represent his underprivileged rags-to-riches inner city negroid athleticism.
>>22673401Well, all the helmets are going to be beakie helmets, so that's not really an issue
>>22673401the helmets should be all white, but should also have a decoration like one of those cancer ribbon magnets people put on the back of their cars.Its perfectly American- Buy some cheap bumper sticker crap to put on your car so you can express awareness for causes you care about when its convenient, but otherwise will never actually contribute too.Also, company membership should be determined by painting that little ring around the wrist of the power armor a certain color, like those little livestrong bracelets and shit. SHOW THOSE HERETICS WHAT YOU ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE A DOLLAR FOR
>>22673525I figured all their Rhinos would have the rear covered in inspirational bumper stickers.
>>22673525And don't forget the flag pins.
>Second Company (Terminator) Captain Enjrew JaxonHe's the best duelist in the entire Chapter.But uh, how about FDR? Coolidge? Grant? Woodrow Wilson? Sherman?I have more if you want them.
>>22673544no, no room for them. The rear of the rhinos will all be covered in the holy litanies of 2nd amendment bumper stickers, faded old republican party bumper stickers, NRA membership decals, metal mullisha skulls and monster energy drink logos. They have to be totally bro-trucked out.
>>22673560FDR is already a Venerable Dreadnaught.The others would be good for a historically based army, but only Enjrew Jaxon has the balls out insanity to fit here. Plus your average American easily recognizes Washington and Lincoln and Kennedy as American icons, but probably couldn't recognize any of those others. They probably wouldn't recognize Jackson either, but he beat people with a cane and took bullets like a man.
>>22672990Needs Audie Murphy.
>>22673581No no no, Capter Master Washington DESPISED political parties, they are seen as heresy on Nova Merica.
>>22673581Rhinos with truck nuts?
>>22673598There are two underground cults on Nova Merica, the Cult of the Elephant and the Cult of the Donkey.
>>22673598Yeah, exactly. Plus this is the version of America detached from reality - in this version, no one argues about politics, everyone is dedicated to LIBERTY and FREEDOM in equal measure and AWESOME.
>>22673582Not even Sherman or Grant?What about Thomas Jefferson?
>>22673628So Republican party bumper stickers are out, NRA memberships, Monster energy drink, truck nuts, and 2nd amendment stickers are in?
4 billion hours in paint
>>22673639Sherman isn't known enough.Problem with Grant is then you sort of have to include Lee, and then we get Civil War division, which is against UNITED FOR FREEDOM.Thomas Jefferson might be a Librarian like Franklin, or "Keeper of Records"
>>22673698>Sherman unknownDo you even liberate?
>>22673628Don't forget, Freedom isn't free, it costs a buck o'three.
>>22673698Fair point, I suppose. I mean you could simply have Lee and Grant with a sort of healthy rivalry between them, but maybe not.For Jefferson, I imagine he wrote up the Chapters founding document etc.
>>22673740The Horus Heresy was a Civil War, Lee and Grant could've been two PDF pitted against each other by Horus's actions.
>>22673793I'm pretty sure the Chapter wasn't around during the HH. It was founded fairly recently.
>>22673793They were both Merican commanders who fought on opposing sides during the heresy. After the Heresy, Grant was gifted a Planet where his Merican Fusilier veterans and their families could settle (as Old Merica on Terra was gone, wiped out by Horus).
>>22673811It seems to be descended from the Merican Fusiliers (the HH era US Army, or what was left of the US army after 30,000 years)
>>22673820>>22673811The Chapter wasn't there during the HH. Grant and Lee are probably native Merican figures.
>>22673830doesnt mean that some variation on the story can't be part of chapter lore
>>22673220Here's an idea - how about we swap the Captains for the 12th and 13th Scout Companies.The 13th is the "training" company as usual, under skilled woodsman and fighter Davicro Kette. The 12th Company, under Teodor Rusevelt is more like the Wolf Scouts - marines who just can't live outside of the Outdoorsman Lifestyle - they can't wear heavier power armour for how it prevents them from feeling the breeze of freedom on their faces. They spend their time on hostile planets wrestling bears, hunting local wildlife, riding cybermoose, etc. They are also mounted, a big difference between them and the other Scout Company.
>>22673923That does balance 2 Terminator capable Companies, I admit.
>>22672976I prefer this kindhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNGHNA4wdKE
>>22673923I agree with this.
>>22669995So, how did the Order of Our Lady of Liberty (Two members pictured in the OP pic), the American Flag Bikini clad minor order of the Sisters of Battle become involved with Merica? Since they're not wearing power armour, they're likely not a Militant Order... unless they're all somehow some sort of weird Repentia cult. Do they maybe head in after the Murrican Marines to mop up and "encourage" the Merican way? Are they in any way connected to the Titan Lady Liberty?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZm4zseMok0For those Fuck Yeah moments.But I support the Company switcharoo.I also suggest a rivalry with Orkz over who has the biggest guns.

Are 'Murrican marines' going to be their official name, or will you dub the chapter officially something along the lines of 'Screaming Eagles'?
>>22674080Maybe the Statue of Liberty Titan was made in the likeness of an important Saint? A small group of sisters split off from a larger one to worship her. They wear nothing but her colours out of humility.
>>22674144Yeah, we will, we just can't pick one.
>>22674144I like Screaming Eagles
>>22674152She's in the likeness of Emperor Sam's wife, and the mother of his sons the Founding Primarchs.
Screaming Eagles would be appropriate if the Chapter was more oriented for airborne assaults, if you were going for a shout out to the 101st Airborne Division.
>>22674152I almost want to make them a Repentia order with a unorthodox garb - not like Repentia wear much anyways. The idea of them expertly wielding massive chainsaws against the Tau pleases me.
>>22674182This IS the chapter that uses giant mutant cyborg eagles to attack.
How about "The Patriots"? Eh? Ehhhhhhh?
>>22674182Well they ride giant eagles through the air, so I guess they're pretty aerial.
>>22674182Well, they have Eagle Jump Packs and Eagle Speeders, so it does fit.
Sorry, I thought we had a focus on vehicles.Anyway, in that case fuck yeah Screaming Eagles
>>22674196>>22674204>>22674216So, are we in agreement? the 'Screaming Ealges' Chapter of Merican marines?
>>22674238SO WE DECREE
>>22674238I agree, but remember that we're armored assault
So does decree, Master of Records Tomasjef Erson, that on this day, a new Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes shall be formed. The Screaming Eagles will be created to preserve the freedom of the Imperium from the tyranny of the Xenos, Traitor, and Mutant that plagues mankind on all fronts.>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIWmvJIiJoo
Wait, what's the Chapter's battle cry?
>>22674285*sniff* HOW CAN I HOLD ALL THIS LIBERTY?
>>22674291YOU HAVE TO ASK?"GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!"
>>22674291Merica, Fuck Yeah!
>>22674294You don't hold it all for yourself. You spread it from star to shining star
Anyone create a 1d4chan page yet?
>>22674389Working on it right now.
>>22674305An alternate catchphrase I realized, for the Scouts perhaps."Eagles lead the way."
>>22674439Not digging it as much.
>>22674448Figure I'd toss it out there.
>>22674183Heh, can't lie that I like this. But being MURRICA they should be wielding special SP guns.
So what about these folk's arch-nemesis? Tau from the Sept of So'Vi'Et, who seek to conquer, enslave and corrupt good honest human worlds of the Imperium?
Is there a Dreadnought Schwarzkopf? We need Stormin' Norman.
>>22674563Red and yellow armour, sept symbol suspiciously looks like a hammer and sickle, fanatical about the Greater Good, Sept world has a lot of humans on it, which they send out as spies. They have Kroot that work with them that are basically Vietcong.
>>22674628Majestic as fuck.
>>22674628Awesome. Also here, http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Screaming_EaglesLet's get to it. For Merica!
>>22674668Some one get >>22674628 and >>22673650 up there.I don't know how ;~;
>>22674563Is Vi'et Sept their allies?
So what's the strength of their PDF and Guard forces? I'm thinking 50 Regiments of each - 50 PDF Regiments guarding the home planet, and 50 Guard Regiments out there kicking ass. Maybe each PDF regiment is tied to a region of the planet, and each Guard regiment is raised from the best of each PDF regiment.
>>22674718I'm liking this idea.
>>22674705Maybe an Ork Waaagh called the Vet Kon'
>>22674718That's probably the best idea for it. The PDF would basically be the National Guard, and the IG would be the Army. Would the 50 Regiments have an overarching command, so even though they're separate they often act as one?Also, would the planet have it's own Navy?
>>22672444Regular .75 cal bolts lack stopping power. Some range commandos over at /oa/ insist that the Exitus pistol is a much better weapon, though.
>>22674727He means thishttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Sept_V%27iet
>>22674615The Craftworld K'riean Conflict was a bitter rebuke of the Murrican Marines as the reckless waves of the So'Viet Sept took fully half of the vast ship, forcing the Marines to spare the Eldar on their own half to keep the Infinity Circuit from the Sept's hands.An uneasy truce exists between the essentially loyalist Southern K'reian Eldar (named for the Southern Point towers) and the militaristic joint Northern K'reian Eldar/So'Viet Sept Tau.Rumors of famine and conscription filter continually out of the North to the stable, populous South, with infiltrators from both sides slipping through the miles of porous DMZ separating the two halves of the Craftworld.Sentiment towards the presence of the Murrican Marines is mixed; without them the Inifinity Circuit would have fallen entirely into So'Viet hands (and with it the Craftworld) and a persistent gratitude exists for that. But tendency of the Nova Murrica soldiers to treat the Southern K'riean citizens as a kind of distasteful but necessary burden as the ultimate Murrican goal is to deny the So'Viets the Craftworld's vast weaponry grates on the remaining Eldar.Without the Marine presence the Northern Sept would've overrun the Southern K'rieans and thus come into possession of self-sustaining and highly mobile base capable of obliterating entire Imperial Navy fleets.The Murrican strategy has become one of essentially attrition as all reliable intelligence points towards the Sept sacrificing it's nominal allies to "the Greater Good" by working them to death and starving the rest in the name of a military buildup that, should open warfare ever recommence, the Murrican Marines are 100% certain that would themselves obliterate before seizing the rest of Craftworld K'riea.Whether they would then attempt to safely destroy the craftworld and all aboard, persist with an occupation, or try some other tactic remains to be seen.
>>22672767Nah, chaos terrorists are left to The Officio Assassinorum Executioner force 'Delta'.
chief apothecary: barrack obama (on loan from the salamanders)
>>22674837or dr home
>>22674837>apothecaries>Screaming EaglesPick one.
>>22674851the screaming eagles had combat medics and surgeons and if you think anything else well have a cookie
>>22674837Berrick O'Bomma is quietly trying to get the Murrican leadership to change it's stance on Apothecaries under the banner of "strengthening the coming generations of Marines with preemptive screening and preparation of implants."Whether his attempts come to fruition is anyone's guess.
>>22673239His death was believed to be at the hand of Imperial Guard Private Oswald. Others believe the Officio Assassinorum had a hand in his death.
>>22674875No, they get Apothocaries, just not free ones. Initiates have to PAY for the Genehancements, darnit!
As a 'murcan I feel so much joy about this chapter
>>22674080Repentia go naked in order to repent for past sins.Sisters of Liberty wear their bikini power armor to show that they fear nothing, so long as they are wreathed in LIBERTY!>>22674152The Statue of Liberty was made in the likeness of their founding cannoness who became a Living Saint. A Living Saint of FREEDOM!
>>22674739Well, the PDF certainly has a central command. The Regiments... not sure. Technically having such a thing would be sort of heretical since their supposed to go where the Guard leaders tell themI do figure that the Guard regiments are kind of like the Vostroyan - it's not a Raise and then run them till their dead, each regiment has reinforcements shipped out to it from their home region.
The home world should be a world reclaimed from exodite eldar.hint: native americans
>>22678227I don't think it's bikini power armour. I think it's just bikinis. I mean, I don't even know how bikini power armour would work. And I mean, look at the two Sisters in the OP picture. That's clearly not power armour. I figure they're sort of a mix militant/non-militant chapter. They try to raise the 'morale' of liberated populations, while simultaneously being on the look out for insurgents to blast.I do like the idea of a Faith Power where by going unarmoured, their faith in the protection of the Saints and Emprah makes them unnaturally lucky.
>>22678722Do the survivors operate casinos?
>>22678808>I don't even know how bikini power armour would work.Forgive the Cultist, but something like this except with a metal thong.
>>22678862Aside from the heresy, that's not POWER armour in any way. But yeah, slap some stars and stripes on it and it'll be fine.
>>22678862and also cables and exhausts and servos, I guess.Also make it high-cut because it's more MURKA since it works fine with big hips as opposed to shitty japanese hips.
>>22678808Pro-tip; they help human populations that have been under Tau breeding programs rekindle their "natural" desires.
>>22678722The world should have actually been a verdant Paradise world filled with only the Exodites when the IoM reached it.After a few millenia, it's now all desert, hives and stripmalls.
>>22674136Does Ronnal Reigen have a Raygun?
>>22679809He uses a plasma cannon to destroy enemies of justice.
>>22679861Hmm. Maybe more of an Archeotech Plasma Pistol that can fire with the strength of a fulll Plasma Gun or even Cannon somehow.
>>22679952But only for six shots, then it needs to be reloaded.
>>22679952Works for me.>>22679985I think you are thinking of the legenday bolt pistol of Battle Brother Harry Estwod.
>>22680002I was actually thinking of any western six-shooter.
>>22680057Thats why I was referencing Clint Eastwood.
>>22680073Fair enough, but I wasn't thinking of just his. Maybe make it 7 shots to mimic a desert eagle?
>>22680113I'm surprised Deagle Brand Deagles haven't been statted up as weaponry. They're actually American-invented, after all.
>>22679952Aside from Ronnal's Raygun, other famous weapons of the chapter include Jaxon's Power Cane, which can kill tanks, Barklei's mysterious Chaos Orb, and Captain Ran Bow's twin bolters that he is strong enough to fire at the same time
do they have a chapter flaw of "shoot your allies by mistake"?
I found a good design for Lincoln's dreadnaught >>22680547
>>22680494No, this is awesome idealized badass America.
So which space marine models would be the simplest mod job for all these guys (including cyber mouse and eagles)I was thinking instead of using eagles for jump packs you could use the wing of the saguinary guard for jump packs.
Come on, don't stop now, for Liberty!
What Codex would we use for the Screaming Ealges, and what would the stats be for the Abrams-pattern Predator?
Bump for Liberty
The important Sister that got the Titan-Statue of Liberty? Has to be Betty Ross.
>>22686098She earned it by impaling a foe on a banner
>>22680113>7 shots to mimic a desert eagle>not a 1911FFFFFFFFFFFUCK YOU!
>>22687774You mean a 39911?
>>22687885"Kolt Pattern Bolt Pistol"
