Haven't seen one of these in a while, so why the fuck not do one?I need a 1d10 for the reason our marines were founded
Rolled 9Okay i'm game. Rollan'
There was an error in the paper work, and their name was accidentally misspelled.
Rolled 10>>24170402Fucking captcha fucking up ate my dice
>>24170378>>24170414CRUSADE! Our chapter was founded to kick faces in in the name of the Emprah. And as such, we were born in the fires of war, cutting our teeth on the foes of Mankind.1d100 for when we were founded
>>24170445Shit... does that mean we are one of the unknown legions or something?
Rolled 86>>24170430Fuck it
>>24170445...According to Chapter Records we are among the Second founding chapters. However, little evidence exists to support the claim, even among our Proginators. Who are they anyway?Roll 1d100 for proginator
Rolled 72>>24170504Is this the damn vanilla marines?Fuck it, if so>re-rollan
>>24170504...WHY IS IT ALWAYS BLOOD ANGELS WHEN I DO THIS?Apparently, we're among the first successors of the noble Blood Angels, among the great names such as the Angels Encarmine, Flesh Tearers, and others. If this is true, our history is a notable one indeed, even if only we know it.1d10 for Geneseed purity
Rolled 1>>24170574This isn't going to end well...
>>24170608...We are one hundred percent identical geneseed wise to the Blood Angels, including all their strengths and weaknesses, down to our demeanor as well. We are true sons of Sanguinus, and proud of it.1d100 for characteristic modifiers
Rolled 99>>24170637And here I thought rolling 1 meant everything was fucked.
Instead of using either the ultramarines or the blood angels, how about we're a "Codex chapter", using the rules from Honour the Chapter?
>>24170688Perfectly acceptable. We can pull that. Let me get the PDF up on that one...>>24170677+5 to any characteristics of the players choice.Considering we're pure as fuck Blood Angels, I'd recommend +5 to WS and +5 to either Toughness or Agility.Gimmie a second on pulling up the Codex Chapter tables.
>>24170851Alright, roll 1d14 for Chapter Demenor
>>24170932Aloof. No wonder no one's heard of us, we prefer the company of our own chapter to any others. We're cold and distant even to other Space Marines. Still, we take the Apocraphyon oath to join the Deathwatch, for such is our duty.1d100 for our chapter hero
>>24171017One of our chapter masters in the distant past holds that honor.What did he do? Roll 1d100 for the answer.
>>24171079>>24171083Did you read the sticky mate?
Rolled 39>>24171083Read the first page.Again, rollan.
Rolled 43>>24171095Yes. Sorry about that.
>>24171104Hell yes motherfuckers. Our Chapter Master imitated Sanguinus himself, kicking daemonic ass like mad, breaking the back of a daemon prince upon his knee as the pitched battle raged all around him.1d100 for type of homeworld our Crusading Blood Angels come from.
>>24171150Feudal world blood thirsty noble knights gogogogo
Rolled 98>>24171150Holy shit this chapter could be something special
Rolled 58>>24171168Damnit Captcha stop eating mah dice
Rolled 99>>24171150I feel like this chapter is getting special snowflake syndrome
>>24171182Fittingly for Crusaders, we're fleet based, never settling down on any world but recruiting from those we come across in our endless wars.Need 1d100 for recruiting worlds status.
>>24171200>They're basically Blood Angels, but like wicked mysterious and uber cool lone wolves>They all have heterochromia too
Rolled 26>>24171226Still hoping for dat sweet feudal
>>24171200Hell, at least it isn't smurfs. And blame the fucking dice on this one.
Rolled 72>>24171226Yet again roll
>>24170637That's why we covered our selves in the sisters blood
>>24171200Well hey, if we did have the codex chapter curse, along with our demeanour, we pretty much would be the snowflake chapter. Hard to work with, distrusting of others.Maybe we're the Frozen Shards chapter.
>>24171236>>24171244Gonna average these two and come up with Feral. We recruit from the most savage of worlds, men long lost to civilization and the traditions of the Imperium at large.1d100 for climate>>24171258I'd say we use Blood Angels curse rules because we're second founding
Rolled 32>>24171287Shit better be br00tal as fuck.
>>24171258Hell, play up the ice and uniqueness aspect.Give our chapter master the swords Icingdeath and Twinkle.Our chapter psyhic powers could be the Rogue Trader "Voidfrost" discipline.
>>24171317So they'd be Frozen Vampire Angels?...that sounds fucking awesome
>>24171330Oh god.We could be a Wendigo chapter.
>>24171330Well vampires would be cold anyway, right? The chill of death.
>>24171314It temperate unless OP decides to 'average out' again
>>24171296Temperate. The world is much like ancient Terra, full of multiple biomes each with their own deadly threats.1d10 for how we rule this mudball.>>24171317>>24171330>>24171344I support this notion. I could change the world to an Ice world if you want me too.
Rolled 7>>24171360Nah, leave as is as dice gods have wished
Rolled 9Roll, again>>24171360
>>24171344My first thought was something akin to the San'layn from WoW, but I like wendigos too.http://www.wowpedia.org/San%27layn
>>24171200almost every goddamn roll has been an outlier of the bellcurve. Damn skippy its special snowflake, lets see if we can make it bad asss.
>>24171384>>24171381>>24171386We're aloof to our recruiting world as well, leaving the tribes to fight among themselves, taking the best warriors and shamans into our number. The worlds mythology is full of references to angels taking men up to join them among the stars. Our librarians find the close guess to what actually happens to the asperaints quite amusing.Alright, 1d10 to see if we follow the Codex or not.
Rolled 6>>24171434The codex astartes approves of this
>>24171344I think its decided then. Fuckin Wendigoes man, it fits perfectly with the climate and the "pure" geneseed we recieved. The blood curse, all of it. Rumours of secret rites we perform, our mysterious appearance on the pages of histroy.Fuck yeah Wendigo's!
Rolled 6>>24171434>>24171387Split the difference. We have the more vampiric style for the regular marines, with the wendigos being the death company?
Rolled 8>>24171453>>24171445What if Wendigo mode was our equivalent to the Red Thirst?
>>24171438Yup, Codex as fuck. We follow it about as close as our proginators do which is to say, only slightly deviating from it in the matters of the Death Company.As for abilities... well, go with Blood Angels. Close enough.1d100 for chapter beliefs>>24171474It's closer to the Black Rage all things considered in that it is mindless slaughtering. Though having our Black Rage and Red Thirst tied closely together is an intriguing prospect.
Rolled 46>>24171504Dogmatic Wendigos man
>>24171241I never really got the hatred for rolling UM geneseed. It's the equivilent of saying, "Hey, you have total freedom to design this chapter how you wish." Not all UM successors are Calgar sycophants.
>>24171453>>24171474Regular Marine Armor is Painted Blue/white and Red (Blue/white = ice/snow/cold/whatever, red = the blood and what not)The Chapter Icon is a Bloody Icicle, or the like.Upon falling to the Black Rage, their icon is changed to a wendigo head with bloody fangs.I don't know, just thinking now
Rolled 52>>24171504>>24171514They beleive their devotion to the codex is what stops them from succumbing to the wendigo?
Rolled 14>>24171537I think I might have to draw this
>>24171514The Emperor Above All.In the end, we differ the most from the true Blood Angels in who we place our faith in first. We revere the Emperor before our genetic fathers, the primarchs. Sanguinus himself is considered secondary, despite being the source of our Geneseed. An odd tradition for a second founding chapter to be sure.1d10 for current status (Excluding death company)
Rolled 1>>24171588My rolls have been ass.
>>24171530They have a little more restriction when it comes to determining if they follow the codex.
Rolled 3>>24171588come on...
Rolled 1>>24171588Over strength come onnnnn
>>24171603We're hurting a little, but we're not dead yet. We took some serious casualties in our last Crusade, and are operating at about half strength in total. We've been upping our recruitment drive as well.Roll 1d100 for allies
Rolled 98>>24171647So what about a name?
>>24171655...A Rogue Trader Dynasty has supported us since M36, acting as our heralds and scouts into unknown systems. We provide the protection only Astartes can bring, and they help us deal with the Imperium at large.1d100 for chapter enemies
>>24171655A few off the top of my head:WightsWhite WalkersLords of IceWendigos (Or that can be what the Death Company is called)Winter AngelsI realize how cheesy those might sound
Rolled 3>>24171655"The Wendigos" sounds okay, but a little flat.Ice Shrikes, Death Chill, Snow Angels (so fahnny), Angels Rigentibus?
>>24171706Blades of Winter sounds kinda cool.
>>24171706I though hamminess was a non-issue in 40k, at least concerning chapter names.
>>24171729Should it be Blades of Winter or Winter Blades?
>>24171762Winter Blades sounds more space marine-ish
>>24171723Eldar. IF there is one foe we cannot stand, it is the Eldar. We had a nasty chance encounter with a minor Craftworld once, and the hate for them still runs deep, undiluted through the long centuries. The feeling is mutual.Well, that's really about it aside from custom advance tables. 1d100 for that.>>24171762>>>> Anonymous 04/10/13(Wed)15:35:09 UTC-5 No.24171762>>>24171729>Should it be Blades of Winter or Winter Blades?Either works. Blades of Winter sounds better though.
Rolled 39>>24171729So change the icon from>>24171537To a Sword made of ice or something?
>>24171800Command Without Doubt. Funny. Opposite our demeanor so, I'm going with >>24171805Honored Wargear. Basically, it makes us more tactical and better with exotic weapons.
Rolled 88Did we generate special equipment yet?If not, here's my roll for it.
Aaand that's all the dice can say. From now on it's up to fluff. We've got a sweet set up here.>>24171858Codex chapters don't get it, sadly.
and does anyone have that link to the marine creator thing? Just want to dick around with colors and whatnot for a few.
>>24171871Huh, damn, that sucks a bit. Oh well.I do recomend they get access to Cryo Grenades (RoB 136, 147) at least.
>>24171940Same, if we're sticking with the ice theme. We've done cave man blood angels in the past, but I don't think we've just gone with purely cold ones.
Alright, after a few minutes, I've gotten an idea:Note that I'm not really an expert on color theory.Red High lights, for the connection to the blood angelsWhite SkullAnd A Dark Blue or Light BlueAny criticisms so far?
>>24172141That's a work in progress by the way.
>>24172141>>24172152I'd say more blue, like a really cold grey or blue on the pauldrons and a red skull. I dunno.
>>24172141Needs more... I dunno, color on the body, a paler red and a pale blue body.
>>24172194>>24172210I was just curious about the colors was all.Chose a lighter blue for the main armor, darker blue for the eagle, and green for the eyes for contrast.
>>24172289Much better. We could still have some white highlights, like kneepads or boots.
>>24172289Make the wings on the chest a pale red will ya?
Changed a few of the high lights, made only the soft armor, grill, and head tubes red. MAde the other high lights white.
>>24172404This works, this works pretty well, actually. I'd like to see the wings more defined, but nice nonetheless.Anyway, to bed with me, it's far too late and I have classes tomorrow.
>>24172557Oh shit man, love the emblem. The pure red eyes are a little odd though...
>>24172575I got laz- I mean uh he's going through the Red Thirst. Yeah.
>>24172557I was just about to ask if anyone was looking at this thread.Very nice. Miles ahead of anything I can do myself.Made a last version of the armor for kicks and giggles.Here are the colors I used:#7ABAEBLight blue#4570FFDark Blue#FA0707Red#04FA00GreenSo does anyone want to do fluff?
>>24172557Is he a Lexicanium? Since he has a Force Sword and no psychic hood.
>>24172598Fuck, I'll do some, give me a bit.
>>24172598Changed the eyes to red, and I think they look better that way.
>>24172620I can draw in a psychic hood if I've inadvertently raped the lore with my carelessness. Here's an update, with colored gun and actual eyes.
>>24172666No, no. A Lexicanium has no psychic hood.However, since it's a codex chapter, his armor should be a different shade of blue from the rest of the Chapter.
>>24172737Roger, will darken armor until it is within parameters outlined in the Codex Astartes. May the Emperor guide my brush.In the meantime, some heraldry for hype.
A chill ran down Vergil's spine as he gazed upon the Cold Angel that had come down from the sky itself in that Iron Bird, garbed in ice and blood. The skull of some beast was painted on to its shoulder, the giant's skeletal horned mask echoing it. It's eyes glowed a husky red, like that of the sunsets he saw every night, a spot of hot fire within the Cold Angel.It extended a massive hand to him, covered in the ice-metal the old ones had described to him on the long nights of the time of long nights when the tribe had all gathered together within the chief's hall to celebrate the year and the God of Man. The voice that spoke to Vergil sounded like glaciers rubbing against each other."Would you become an Angel, little one?"The Blade of Winter looked down upon the prospective Aspirant, the young man nearly paralyzed in shock at seeing a legend given flesh and voice. The Head Chaplain's helm tended to have that effect, which was why he'd convinced Tyco to let him borrow it. Those in awe were less likely to run.Tentatively, the Feral's hand reached out and grasped his own, almost as if to see if he was real or not. That was all the acceptance he needed. The Blade of Winter grasped even tighter and drew the young man closer, pointing his hand towards the Thunderhawk."Now, we go to the stars, little one. Forget everything else, but the chill of death."Kinda shitty I know, but best I could do on short notice.
>>24172841Perfect. You're done the Emperor proud, son.+++Thought for the Day: Faith without deeds is worthless.+++
>>24172841Sweet. Think you could do some sorta death company or just a normal assault marine?
>>24172905I have an idea for a bit of writefaggotry. Allow me to try my hand at it and then I will draw again.
>>24172924Do it motherfucker!>>24172918Really, It wasn't that good. Might do more in a bit though.
>>24172737I figured he was just using a Power weapon in the same vein as the Space Wolves' frost blades.Although, now that you mention it, the chapter insignia does resemble the horned skull of the librarians and exorcists.
>>24172976I enjoyed it.
>>24172981Which isn't honestly that bad a thing. It's more like a mutant evil flesh eating dear thing's skull. Looks pretty sweet.
>>24172981Nope.Force Weapons have that squiggly line on them. Power weapons do not.
>>24173026Oh yeah, I definately think it's awesome.You know, reading up about how blood angels and their successors are created. The bit about how they're interred into a sarcophagus and injected with the blood of sanguinus is interesting.
>>24172803"We Are The Chill of Death" sounds like an awesome Battle Cry/Motto for these guys
>>24173096I figured it was a rune, like the runes on space wolf power swords.
>>24173111And they sleep in it every day to refresh their superhuman abilities, yes, all very Dracula.
>>24173161Or very wendigoesque or Skinwalkerish.
>>24173143Read Deathwatch and look at the weapon every single Librarian is using. It's got that exact lightning bolt shape on it.
>>24173183>Talking about Skinwalkers>EverThat said:>Wendigo MarinesI love you so much sometimes /tg/
The village children sat about the floor of Elder Braka's longhouse. Their excitement was palpable as they traded whispers and hushed laughs, craning their little necks to get a better look at the midnight blue curtain that ran along the back wall. Tonight marked the dawn of the Festival of Angels, a week-long proving ceremony in which the greatest warriors of each tribe gathered to prove their worth to the legendary Ice Angels. The beating of the spirit drums began to increase in pace, and a hush fell over the crowd. From behind the curtain, a voice like weathered stone cried out.The Great Elder, Chief of Chiefs, burst out from within the sheet, adorned in the skull of a deer and the skins of many predators. In his hands he wielded a torch that burned with the color of an evening sky. He walked across the makeshift stage, crouching low at random to growl in the faces of some of the children, who yelped in fright and joy at the spectacle.Braka faced the crowd at large, and cleared his throat:"It is said that long ago, when the stars were but children and the people of our world were yet unborn, a great warrior forged his kingdom in the sky. With hands of fire and eyes that burned like the sun, he did battle with the nightmares of the world, led by the wicked Haurus!" The elder drew back some of the veil, revealing a painting on the wall of a demonic figure. A massive, skeletal beast with horns that stretched to the sky, belched fire from its fanged maw. It had one yellow eye, the inside of which was painted with an eight-pointed star. The children hissed and booed the devil, but were quickly silenced by a look from Braka."But the Greatest Chieftain was no fool, he did not fight alone! Beside him, his greatest son, Angelus, did battle!" The curtain was drawn farther back, revealing two figures painted in gold standing before the black demon.Should I continue, /tg/?
>>24173391If you don't, I'll slap your face off your face
"What are we?""Blades, forged in the will of the Emperor and quenched in the blood of Sanguinus""Where do we come from?""The cold times and empty voids.""Who are we?""The Blades of Winter, for we know the chill of death, and carry it in our hands."-Common pre-battle chant among the Blades of Winter Assault Squads.
how about marines of the death company have horned helmets?
>>24173580Or they're helmets are made to look like the wendigo heads, and painted white as opposed to black?
>>24173580I like it.
>>24173605That sounds awesome.
Hmm, you know, these guys would make great marines. They obviously have a fondness for the cold and the void, so would be a good choice for attempting to breach an enemy ship.Just them walking all over the hull of the ship, ceramite covered in a thin layer of frost, as they march slowly towards the viewing windows of an enemy ship.
>>24173641Space isn't cold.
>>24173641...Drawfag. You have a new objective.>>24173659True, but that's nitpicking. It's still a good point. They'd likely be decent at boarding actions.
The Elder continued his tale, sweeping his torch about him with every sentence."As the Chieftain looked on, recovering from his wounds, his son grappled with the dread Haurus. The great warrior fought with all of his rage, but he too fell to the tainted claws of the beast!" In the dim light of his home, Braka could see a number of the older tribesmen shed tears at the thought of their mythic ancestor being slain by the foul demon. A child at his feet sobbed openly. He knelt down, and spoke the next line directly to the young boy."But no demon can withstand the power of a father in mourning."With a flourish, Braka tore down the remainder of the curtain, showing the rest of the mural. The Chieftain stood over the demon, white lines streaking from his hands into the sky. "The Great Chieftain rose up, filled with a terrible anger, and drove his flaming blade deep into the heart of the Haurus! It screamed in terror, clawing and biting at the Chieftain's flesh, but to no avail!" The children cheered and hugged one another, lost in the spur of the moment. "With Haurus defeated, the shadows and devils under its control fled, and order was brought to the heavens!"But the Chieftain had paid a terrible price. His son had been slain, and he would soon succumb to his own wounds. Using the last of his tremendous strength, he broke the soul of Angelus into pieces, and scattered all but one piece among the stars. This final piece he used to create a race of news sons, that might carry on the battle against evil in His name. Those sons are the Ice Angels, the greatest warriors of the heavens. It is said that when the good suffer, or the wicked prosper, the Angels descend from on high. They come in boats carved of lightning, that roar like an angry sea! They are clad in armor forged from pure ice, that their foes may feel the cold hands of death upon them! But above all, they wear the skull of Haurus, that all may know not even the King of Demons can stand against their fury!"
>>24173708>Every marine wears a Wendigo like Death-Mask Thing....You know, that's a brilliant idea.
>>24173659Scientifically? No.But Rogue Trader has an entire discipline dedicated to the cold of space.And their feet being on the hull of a ship would cause conduction.
>>24173708That gave me a joy boner.>>24173621And going further: Instead of the "We are the chill of Death," battle cry, they give a sort of feral howl, and they actually believe that they have become windegos.Though that might be going over into space wolf territory.
>>24173767Yeah, the howl is going too far. The Chill of Death cry is fine though.
>>24173767I got it!They yell out "WEN-DI-GO!" like the Marvel character.
>>24173814...Fucking perfect man.
>>24173935Oh sorry, got distracted.***"They are the chill of winter, the icy grip of death. They close in on their prey and deliver a swift death to them! They are the Angels of Ice, the Sons of Angelus, and today, they will be watching!" Thunderous applause filled the room. Braka removed the Crown of Stories, and addressed the crowd as the braziers were lit."Fight well today in the proving, and bring glory to your Clan. Should you die, die with honor, for even the worthy dead may join the battle in heaven. May your blades strike true, and may the Ice Angels smile upon us all."The crowd filtered out of the longhouse and into the crisp air of the evening. Above, boats that roared like thunder crashed down from the sky, releasing warriors that towered above mortal men, clad in armor the color of morning frost.The Angels of Ice had arrived.
>>24172870That was sweet
>>24174029Nice work. My own shit coming up eventually.
>>24174111Though Brother Mikaelus has been lost to Beast Within, he may still bring death to the foes of the Emperor. Ave Imperator, Wendigo.Should his armor be all black, I forget how the Death Company works
>>24174111>>24174615>>24173767Glad that people liked it, thanks anons.
>>24174029So is that it??
>>24174671Yeah that's it man.
>>24174616BA death company is all black, yea.i think it would look great with the skull mask.
>>24174681I love you and hate you at the same time.
>>24174616>Beakie HelmetsThat's six different versions of awesome.
>>24174710>>24174743Here you go.>>24174718Sorry dude, didn't want to drag it on like a douche.
>>24174880awesome, great work
There are legends on Borealin of monsters in the deep forests, tallest mountains, and every other place. But the most common legend, is one shared by nearly every tribe - that of the beast known as Wendigo. Wendigo, he of the Leaping Deer skull and Bonefaced Elk antlers and Crouching Bear claws. Wendigo, who eats flesh and drinks blood without distinction. Wendigo, the man who sleeps next to you in your own hut.Wendigo is feared not because he is terrible, for he is, not because he is strong, for he is, but because Wendigo is the Fallen Man, the brother lost to the taste of flesh and bone of his family. Wendigo is put short, the man who is no longer a man in mind or body. There are many variations of the tales of Wendigo throughout the multitude of tribes, and many have since the arrival of the Imperium added tales of the Cold Angels battling with Wendigo, and defeating them in vicious combat.The Blades of Winter know differently. Unlike in the stories, their inner Wendigo will in the end, always win.
>>24175148>BorealinBATTEL BRUTHAS[SPOILER]please continue[/spoiler]
>>24175233I needed a decent foresty/wild sounding name, and it fit the bill.
>>24175247I figured, but that was the first thing that popped into my mind.
Brother-Chaplain Aranno Silus strode up and down the ranks of the Astartes filling the chapel:You are Space Marines, greatest of the Emperor's warriors.>We are His proud sons. We are the heralds of His truth.You are sons of Sanguinus, successors of the Blood Angels.>We crusade for the Emperor, that all may know His power.You are clad in suits of ice. You embody the cold grip of death.>We are the chill of death. We are the indomitable march of winter.You bear the Black Rage, the Beast Within.>We are the Wendigo.

Death to the enemy!
>>24175355Nice.Also, someone archive this yet?
>>24175420Not yet it seems
>>24175577Well someone should, if only for some of the writefaggotry (All the shit that isn't mine because mine sucks)
>>24175233>BRO RAVENS TODAY THE KEGS ARE AT OUR DOOR
I threw it on suptg
