Clearly the chapter was created as a counterforce to low-key Chaotic corruption in the form of cults and the like, made to do stealthy investigative work and overwhelming lightning raids on suspected cult bases. Such missions require a great deal of secrecy, making Dark Angles the logical choice of progenitor. However, the combination of the DA being less than well liked, frequent contact with chaos, and tenancy towards secrecy does them no favors in the eyes of the Imperium at large, culminating in the chapter master's assassination under suspision of chaotic corruption/Tzeentch worship by order of one of the High Lords. The Omophagea's loss was considered a mixed blessing, as it removed one possible method of the Taint entering the minds of marines.The chapter's homeworld was chosen for security purposes first and foremost, and outside of ensuring that their records and stores of relics are secure, the chapter has little interest in governing the handful of inhabitants. Owing to their highly non-standard goals, a unique chapter organization was called for.
>>25734183Completely the opposite.Seige.So we crush the walls and batter the gates down and pour in, slaughtering everything in our path, before going right back to MUH SECRETS.1d100 for our speciality restrictions.

So strong independant marines who don't need no Codex. The planet is Jungle, and the dangerous kind at that. Perhaps the Distant Rule means that the only other inhabitants are small feral tribes who simply can't be reasonably controled.
>>25734344>Sisters of BattleHuh, could be fun.1d100 for who our Chapter enemies are. Should we have this result as the forces we were meant to counter? Or should we just have it as an extra enemy against Chaos?

>>25734480So... a dead world is one that's completely uninhabited, right?Maybe we recruit from across the galaxy, or something.
>>25734543Maybe the planet was where are chapter master was killed.We were fighting off chaos marines and somehow the imperium fucked up and targeted our guy by mistake but refuse to own up to it.
>>25734534Why doesn't it make sense? They both have an intense hatred of Chaos, and it doesn't have to be ALL Sororitas.
>>25734534It is a bit strange isn't it?I think we have to figure out what Chaos Chapter we are fighting in particular.We need seige warfare to destroy them.We can't have psykers because it would be potentially lethal.Iron Warriors fit the first bit, but I'm not sure about the rest. Any ideas?

>>25734756I vote for "Angels of Defenestration".
>>25734756Angels of Iron
>>25734775>Defenestration>Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window. The term was coined around the time of an incident in Prague Castle in the year 1618. The word comes from the Latin de- (down or away from) and fenestra (window or opening). Likewise, it can also refer to the condition of being thrown out of a window, as in "The Defenestration of Ermintrude Inch".>All Marines carry windows to punch people through
>>25734775>>25734841How about we drop the Angels bit and just go for 'The Defenestrators'?
>>25734861As the proposer of the "Defenestration" bit, I approve.
>>25734861If we want this to be a serious chapter I don't think them having a name about throwing things out of windows is a good idea
>>25734876Who said anything about being serious?We could be totally serious about this, but just have them do batshit-insane stuff.This is why everyone else hates them, cos the Defenestrators are just fucking wierd.
>>25734876>get a load of this guyDEFENESTRATE! THE EMPEROR WILLS IT!
iunno. . .defenestration seems awfully heretical
>>25734912What if the glass was heretical?
>>25734934What if, in addition, the subject being defenestrated was a Heretic? Two stones with one bird, brothers; you would do wise to remember that.
>>25734912That's why they assassinated the Chapter Master. It seems heretical. It's also why they're avoided.It's almost like they're trying to purge Chaos with Chaos. Almost.
Seeing as we're going silly with this Chapter, can we cram the window puns in now?I vote our Chapter Master's name is Hightower.
Beacuse we eject Chaos, even if it means throwing it out the window. All in honour of our revered founder Janus Zizkus, who was assasinated after throwing a rouge inquisitor out a window
>>25734963Not that I think you'll need this, but for referencehttp://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defenestrations_of_Prague
>>25734963>Janus>God of portalsNice touchWhat's the Zizkus bit?
>>25735004Jan Zizka, a czech bloke who threw a protestant out a window, leading to the death of a third of the population of Germany
>>25734876Well it started 30 years of war that practically depopulated Germany so it's pretty grimmdark.
>>25735053*with reservation for eventual historical fallacies, this is all from memory
>>25734963I'm all in favour of this now. Chapter Founder was Janus Zizkus, brutally assassinated after throwing a heretical Inquisitor from a window.Trawling Wikipedia for some random info just to get the juices flowing:>The word 'window' comes from the Norse 'vindauga' meaning 'wind eye'.I reckon the Sisters of Battle love us because we make the best windows. I'm sure they go nuts over new stained glass for their Cathedrals.
>>25735157How about the heretic preacher was using physic powers to enslave the sisters till Janus came along and threw him out of the window and now they form the forlorn hope in the storming of any fortress the Defenestrators are storming to atone for their order falling?
I've just realised that we could have our own 'The Fallen'.Literally, in fact.
>>25735157>>25735345The seige specialisation makes perfect sense now. How do you throw someone out of a building if you can't get into it in the first place.
>>25735345OK so we've going full tongue-in-cheek here with Dark Angels aren't we?The Fallen are Defenestrators who, in their adrenaline-fueled rage, have accidently thrown themselves out of their own windows. This is considered extremely shameful to the Defenestrators, and all Marines who have done this are grouped up into a group dubbed 'The Fallen'. Naturally, the Defenestrators want nothing to do with the Fallen and even deny that they exist.
>>25735506God this Chapter is so stupid, and yet everything fits into place perfectly.
>>25735535My sides!OK so the Chapter specialises in breaking into fortifications and then throwing the occupants outside, preferably from a great height.The Sororitas love us, because we make all the windows for their churches, if we can stop breaking through them.What else do we need to discuss?
I only have one question:How many heretics do I have to throw out a window to join these badasses?
>>25735826So we're discussing recruitment tactics now?I highly doubt there'd be training methods for throwing people out of windows.What about they take their recruits from other Space Marine Chapters, the Marines of which have killed someone by throwing them out of a window. The Defenestrators show up and recruit them into the fold.But the answer to your question is 'many'.
Recruits in a trial by fire method.2 recruits enter a room with 1 window.One passes and one becomes a fallen
Weapon specialties? Throwing people out windows seems to imply we're a melee-oriented chapter.
>>25735947Nothing's stopping us from punching people out of windows with powerfists. Or, smacking them out with thunderhammers.
>>25736030THUNDERHAMMERS! Or more accurately, Croquet Mallets.
>>25733525Hey, OP, this isn't exactly related but if I don't have a 1d100 can I just use 10d10 in place of that?
>>25736120 Power panes
>>25736030>>25736120Lots of weapons with power behind them, for maximum defenestration.We definitely need some writefagging for this Chapter.
>>25736120So it's official.We're a full-strength Chapter of Defenestrating Space-Marines with Thunder-Croquet Mallets.
>>25736164No.1d100 range is 1-10010d10 range is 10-100
>>25736164You use 2d10: one for the first number and one for the second
>>25736030A specialist unit armed with window panes and power fists/thunder hammers, for on-the-go defenestration?
Writefagging puns:>Window of opportunity>'Pane' instead of 'pain', e.g. high pane tolerance>Being 'transparent'>'Awner' in place of 'honour'?
>>25736259>The thought of such heresy makes me shutter
so, do they go for the eyes when shooting?Firing bullets through the windows of the heretical soul? Drawing the blinds on the enemy?As a siege chapter, they're fantastic at finding openings in the enemy's defenses.
>>25736170Members of this chapter can create some of the most beautiful stained glass windows known to humanity, such that the Emprah Himself would weep at their glory....and then they take these tragic masterpieces into battle.
>>25736397Stained glass windows in place of Company Standards!
>>25736397>>25736430Oh that's just beautiful.So our guys favour the Marines who make the windows really highly, much like the Salamanders and their blacksmiths.What should they be called? Artisans? Glaziers?
>>25736170Being renowned glass-makers, the Defenestrators make use of the vast array of multicolored ashes and sands of the dead, feral world they call home, crafting some of the most stunning and awe-inspiring glass intricacies ever seen in the hands of a Space Marine; some say these glassworks are blessed in the same way as a Chaplain's Rosarius, fueled by the passion and fervent respect for their long-lost Chapter Master, serving as nigh-unbreakable shields in battle.
There are rare instances where a Space Marine Chapter and a Sororitas order forge lasting alliances. Even rarer that the descendants of the Lion create such attachments with outsiders at all. Yet such an attachment has occurred between the Defenestrators and the Order of the Flattened Busom, who had been manning the defences of Hive City Orgunit against the besieging forces of a blasphemous alliance between Word Bearers and Iron Warriors. The latter had jumped in at the opportunity to utilize brand new siege devices against the city, touted as a "bastion of righteousness against the unclean hordes" by overzealous and utterly ignorant ecclesiarchs in matters of defence. The Iron Warriors were all too eager to disprove this statement, and obliterated each outer wall, each defensive bunker, each turret slowly and methodically, until only the inner walls remained. Canoness Armenia was in the process of commending the souls of the citizens, the PDF and her own women when an unlikely request was produced by her vox pearl. "Move all your forces to the eastern wall." It was none other than Janus Zizkus, Chapter Master of the newly-formed Defenestrators. Having not a better plan aside from resisting to the last, she complied. What followed was counted as one of the greatest reversals of fortunes in the Imperium's history of siegecraft. In a daring, massive Thunderhawk deployment, the Defenestrators devastators occupied the ruined remains left behind by the heretics, in a way returning the defences to operational status. The assault and tactical marines created walls of ceramite, bolter and chainsword with which to repel the counterassaults, and soon enough, the flanked heretics created a circle of their own where Zizkus had predicted. It was then, when the besieging force found itself besieged within the shattered walls of the city, that the Chapter's Dreadnoughts, Veterans and Terminators were launched in a massive drop pod assault within their ranks.
>>25736487That's awesome, well done sir.Name for our home world? Should we go with the generic window-based names and call it Vindaugr?
>>25736534God I hope there's more.
Their artifice armor is called gemmail. Named after a stained glass technique that overlaps individual pieces of glass and uses a clear sealant rather lead came as is customary.
For the love of the Emprah, I hope a somebody is recording this glorious thread for posterity.

>>25736639I don't know about their symbol, but their pauldrons have to have stained glasswork on it.
>>25736583Ancestral Weapon; Glazier's Gauntlets, a pair of Power Fists with built-in melta-guns. Previously owned by a prior chapter master known only as "Glazier", these articulate, powerful gauntlets can unleash a hellish burst of heat, practically able to glass any substance with just a well-placed shot. As well, the gauntlets enhance the wearer's strength, allowing them to even more easily throw an unfortunate heretic through a beautifully-crafted window.
>>25736666yeahthe stained glass standard a dead planet enclosed with janus' fist
If I meet a heretic, and he's stood in front of a window on the first-floor, do I kill him and then throw him out of it, or do I throw him out of it, and then kill him?
>>25736534The reinforcements took to destroying the most potent siege weapons of the enemy, for they were exacting a heavy toll on their battle brothers. Battered from without and eviscerated from within, the mortals amidst the ranks of the Ruinous Powers either fought to the last and were slaughtered, or threw themselves at the feet of the Defenestrators with false promises of redemption. It was a surprise for them, that their pleads were accepted, and they were disarmed while the Marines continued their purge. Zizkus himself lopped the hands and feet off of Warsmith Hinsei and Dark Apostle Memnoch, not yet giving them the Emperor's Mercy. Soon enough, a bloody victory was gained for the Emperor, and the survivors among the heretics were corraled and lead into the highest remaining wall portion. It was a strange event that the defenders witnessed: their saviors had arranged for scores of servitors holding down window glass in place, and one by one, the Defenestrators hurled the heretics at the glass. It was an even greater surprise when the executed ones came off the other side as mangled mush, for the glass had been fortified to ensure their body would be squeezed through the small gap created by the impact. Deaf to their pleas, the heretics were culled one by one in an hour-long mass execution, and Janus Zizkus himself threw the ringleaders through the Window of Penitence. The mangled remains were later torched by the Sisters, the very first act of union between the groups. It was the following deed that forever cemented their friendship, if such a thing can exist between so different a pair of organizations. For the convent of the Flattened Busom's windows had been shattered during the siege, on account of the blast waves of the Iron Warrior's siege weapons. It was obvious that the Defenestrators had a knack for strong glassware, and so Armenia made a daring request: that the Defenestrator's Master of the Forge oversee that portion of the repairs.
>>25736725throw him through itjump outgrab him, then toss him into a higher windowgo up, grab him, now throw him out a different equally high windowcomplicated, but awesome
>>25736725It should be obvious. You throw him through the window hard enough to kill him, either from the glass cutting him severely enough to bleed him out, or hitting the ground too hard; two stones with one bird.
>>25736619I'll handle the archive later on.>>25736639>>25736666The colour scheme is gonna be difficult to work with. Unless we do complete black, but with really intricate glasswork on the pauldrons and other parts. I don't think we'd be able to use the Chapter painter tool for this, we need a drawfag on this shit.>>25736693Fantastic.Also begs the question, does the Chapter pour their skill and time into each and every window, just for it to be smashed, or do we save the really ornate stuff for the most heretical?
>>25736776I'd say give the complex paint schemes for their terminators, sergeants, characters, etc.
>>25736725If he's a really low level heretic, like jaywalking or some shit, then first floor is fine.However, if it's Horus, you gotta find yourself a taller building.>>25736740This is fucking awesome and you should feel fucking awesome Armarius. The Window of Penitance is now a thing.
>>25736776They get the Acolytes - Recruits - Whatever we decide to call them, to make most of the windows the chapter commonly uses. The greater one's skill with making glass, the more glasswork they are entrusted with. In the higher echelons of the chapter, the master artisans are entrusted to make the most ornate and intricate windows, only put to use in purging the most vile and irredeemable of heretics and daemon-worshippers. Essentially, the Scouts and acolytes more or less mass-produce most windows in their off time, the best stuff is made by the best glassblowers and such.
>>25736776We could say they make use of serfs, aspirants and such to produce "lesser" windows, while the skilled tradesmen make elaborate works used by veterans.
>>25736828We need to start thinking of names for all the troops.Blowers sounds too gay.Glaziers or glassmiths are good.Artisans, artificers sound good as well.Are we gonna go high-gothic with the names, and just translate everything to Latin? Master Glazier Vitreus?
>>25736534>Defenestrators>Tossers-out-of-windowsImagine a spaggety western with space marines, and a saloon fight.One of these guys is played by Bud Spencer.
And so, without a single window to be found, it was left to the annealation squads to create their own.Bursts of extreme heat reduced the very walls to their base elements. Silica and sand melted and melded together before being stretched and worked into magnificent, gleaming glass. The Chief Glazier inspected the window keenly, running his hand over the fine surface, feeling the quality of the work. --"I trust you take this much care in every aspect of your duty?" Came the sneering address from Inquisitor Kharalov. It took all of Brother Kimax's resolve not to send Kharalov through the newly-wrought glasswork right then, but he stole himself and made do with a stare that answered the question well enough. The true enemy were just beyong the fortress walls, though they would not be outside for long. Chapter Master Zizkus approached, armour-clad footsteps rattling through the narrow corridor. He nodded acknowledgement to the Glazier in appreciation of his craft. --"Brothers! Defenestrators! The enemy is here. The combined forces of one hundred dead worlds descend up on us. The dread tide of vile heretics has once more vomited itself upon this sacred ground and it falls to us to intercede. Have faith in your brothers and yourselves and we will win the day. Take no prisoners save one. Find the sorcerer at the heart of them and shackle him. He will face the Window of Penitence before this day is out. Steel yourselves brothers! For Vidaugr and for victory! Show them the true meaning of Pane!"
>>25737070Well /I'm/ motivated
>>25737070Oh sweet mercy.I'm so glad I decided to do this Chapter today.>Annealation squads>PANE>KimaxI love it.
I suppose I ought to feel privileged; for the first time in my life, I have had the honour of fighting alongside space marines. However, the chapter that led the siege seemed... odd. I'd been led to believe that they were warriors through and through, their minds constantly on the fight and their bodies dedicated to training. The Defenestrators, though, seemed to spend all their time off the battlefield working glass, making their windows. Of course, everyone knows of their marvellous glasswork heraldry, but those are made by their Glaziers, and every one of them was making windows. I asked Corporal Bent about it, and she told me it was a sacred craft to them, because it would be unthinkable to throw a truly worthy enemy through anything less than a masterpiece. Their calm at their work was especially unsettling after I had seen them in battle, breaking the beautiful things they made with nothing less than glee. They were so beautiful, the windows. They caught the light like anything, and the colours weren't like any I'd seen before. I caught a glimpse of one the was being made specially for someone in particular – they wouldn't say who- and I cried all night. And they just broke them, like they were common panes. I don't think I shall ever understand space marines.
I think it's safe to say that these guys probably shouldn't inhabit the same general area as Angry Marines.
>>25737166I am glad to say you did it very well anon.>>25737196Imagine if the Obstinate Marines decided to walk through the Defenestrators workshops?
It is said that at the heart of The Defenestrator's Fortress-Monastery, in a room with no doors, there lies a window unlike any other. A window with otherwordly power. A window that can tell the very fates of those that look into it. It is said that only one has ever seen the strands of his destiny through the Window. It is said that that man, the man who saw through the window, is the God-Emperor of mankind.
>>25737222I shudder to think how they would get along with the Pretty Marines.
>>25737222They'd be punted through the nearest windows.
>>25737256We did kind of establish that nobody really gets along with the Defenestrators, the Sororitas aside.
>>25737253that's some Doctor Who shit right there
Well this has been very creative so far. What other details do we need to fluff out?We need names for the companies, the squads, things like Dreadnoughts etc.I think we need to put a little more detail into our homeworld. Have we said why it's dead yet?
>>25737385Needed materials to make the windows, and "all those fucking trees were just getting in the way."
I'm still waiting for the novel in which a full fledged Space Marine chapter is wiped out by Slaanesh's sentient cloud of planet-devouring dicks.

>>25737385We have the Annealation squads, which could be Assault; they can reduce matter to a workable material akin to molten glass, why not put that sort of technology to use in something like a Close-Combat Weapon or pistol.Forgers can be the Devastators, with heavier equipment than the Annealors, able to bring down heavy equipment and entrenched forces with melta- and plasma-cannons.Been thinking about armor, as well. They could use a metallic, reflective armor coating, akin to that on a compact disc, both dull and grey, and reflecting multiple colors at once. The left or right pauldron could have different trim, depending on what type of unit it is, and the actual pauldron could be colored and hold the chapter's insignia. Just a thought.
Just archived the thread, better vote that shit up!>>25737642Nice one, I've put a request in on another drawfag thread to see if they'll do a full torso + head picture of one of the Marines.>>25737653I like the name Forgers. We'll also have to start thinking of a Chapter symbol.
>>25737642Heh. I like how their buildings are just FILLED with walls of glass. Being in the Angels of Defenestration is like being in the Minority Report videogame.
Do you think we should have some glass related names for different troops, or companies?Like shards, or fragments, or something like that?
>>25737850We could call the Termies/Assault Termies "Shatter Squads". Deep Strikes with Thunder Hammers and Glass Shields, shattering the enemy's defenses, morale, and formations.
Maybe there's a different chapter symbol for each squad type? Perhaps for the lower levels, it's just the regular squad symbol made out of various different colours of glass, with something more elaborate for the command or veterans?
Suggestion: We could use the Black Templars codex for this, with Neophytes in the squads being "glass-bearers"?
Have we established why they hate Chaos specifically yet?Maybe some Word Bearers made a stained glass window in worship of the Chaos Gods and the Defenestrators looked at it and went"hhhhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRAAAURAAAAAUGH"
>>25737884I love this. Shatter Squads sound fucking awesome.>>25737983One of the drawfags hinted to heraldry tinctures. I looked them up on wikipedia and thought about naming the companies after them.Until I realised there are only colours that are used...But I see where you're going with this. The recruits would just have a bog standard glass symbol, standard colour on standard colour.The Chapter Master's symbol would be an ornate piece of art, dazzling to behold, made up of many hues and types of glass.Maybe the Marines have to physically make their own symbols, just to show their glass-working skills are up to scratch.
this was just an oddball thought I had regarding this chapter- but given their penchant for siege warfare and their love of artisan crafts maybe the chapter's land raiders with less transport capacity (like an achilles) are smithed to be particularly ornate?Imagine for a moment an achilles pattern land raider with the side armor from a pre-heresy style era LR. Instead of the rear exit doors- the door frames feature a statue of a chapter hero, and behind the statue is a beautiful, stained glass window illuminated from within, captivating the attention of all that are passed by this roving cathedral on treads
>>25738071>only 7 colours that are used.
>>25737884>shattering the enemies defences, formationsDon't forget about their windows as well.
I'm >>25734192 and I wholeheartedly approve of the direction this thread has taken
Do they just smash the windows over the heads of heretics, or full on set them up and bum-rush them through the glass?
>>25738256It depends on the situation, presumably. Like, when the fighting's hectic they just smash them over their heads, but if it's roughly one-on-one they'll beat them up, pick them up and throw them through.
Guys. Hey guys.Was their planet glassed?
Can I propose window-shaped shuriken?Because whilst throwing people through windows is all well and good, sometimes you just need to through windows through people.
>>25738256The way I see it, the window has many applications in battle. As an opening to CQC, smashing a smaller, simpler window over the head of a heretic is more than adequate. When you've got the drop on the enemy and want to show your dominance, setting up a glass environment beforehand to punt them through really can't be beaten. And should you get a larger, wider window, you and a battle brother can each hold one end and run headlong at the enemy for some AoE smashing. And of course, the resultant shards can be used as the holiest of slashing weapons.
>>25738053Yeah, Word Bearer windows are EXTRA HERESY.
>>25738299I'd imagine not - it's a desert; they need sand to make the windows from.Although, maybe glass in place of ice at the poles, with underground volcanoes to shift it around? Because mountains of crystalline glass would be awesome.
>>25738320Word Bearer stained windows can push a Defenestrator to Angry Marine levels of rage. Trufax.
>>25738333Typically, when that happens, they'll dismantle whatever's holding the heretic window, and - with some chaplains holding it up - they rush the enemy with the intention of punting as many heretics through their own blasphemous window as possible.
>>25738357Now that's irony. Or possibly windowy.
so is their armour white (in practical terms)?Doubtful anyone will ever paint up any but if they did they'd be white presumablymaybe with so much 'ardcoat they shine
>>25738310Who knew window-fu could be so cool?>>25738330That does sound awesome.>>25738493I was imaging completely black for the armour, but having really detailed pauldrons for the symbol.But whatever looks good really.Would the Chapter symbol just be a rectangle smashed into a few pieces? The recruits would just be a plain symbol on the armour, whereas the Chapter Masters would have full on pictures of Chaos marines being thrown through them.
>>25738566I vote black.Also, rectangles? Why not the whole shoulder pad, Lamenters style?
>>25738566maybe Marines Exemplar style where the armour is black except for the pauldrons and arms
>>25738596What about having a set of glassmaking tools like tongs or such on a shield of stained glass?
special rule: if any kind of hammer is available as a weapon option it must be taken
>>25738596I dunno just thinking out loud.Well I'm off for tonight, thread is archived so I'll check back tomorow to see if there's any more updates.I'm definitely going to do thread 2 in the next few days. The Defenestrators are just too good to pass up.Great work everyone!
Someone archive this shit
This needs to go on 1d4chan, too
>>25738708/tg/ threads are archived automatically
>>25737385Our world was hit by a warp storm that turned the ground into glass You can look down and see the very core of the planet..Dotted across the landscape are glass statues of people screaming in pain and terror.
>>25737694A window.With wings.
>>25738720Maybe, once we've gotten the armour and all that sorted out.>>25738708It's already in suptg.
>>25738768The Windows logo, but shattered with a heretic-shaped hole in it.
what about introducing some ice blue?
>>25738768>>25737642Like in the first panel here? I tried to make it look blocky, like it was actually done in stained glass, though maybe the little circular window with the crossed beams is too kitschy?
Wait! Windows logo color scheme! 1/4 red, 1/4 green, 1/4 blue, 1/4 yellow
>>25737642That's in our Hall of Windows, a hall in which we keep commemorative windows. It is known as the Window of Defenestrating Anger.
Shard of the first window. A legendary relic that was once part of a grand battle standard. The first chapter master broke the standard over a daemon prince, and the resulting shards seemed as if they were actively seeking other daemons to sink themselves into. Stories tell that the shard still seems to shatter further when used, but somehow does not lose any of its remaining mass.Any daemon unit within 3' of a daemon model that suffers an unsaved wound from the shard (including the wounded daemon itself,) must take a demonic instability test.Grand battle standardA glorious stained glass depiction of the current chapter master ninja-kicking a chaos marine out a tower window. Only the honour guards accompanying the chapter master himself may lay hands upon this chapter relic.In addition to counting as a chapter standard, any member of the honour guard may, only once in a game, sacrifice his other melee attacks to use the standard as a melee weapon. If the attack hits, the target is killed outright, but the unit loses the effects of having a standard for the rest of the battle.What can I say? I like game mechanic fluff as much as fluff fluff.
>>25738987Dammit I just made that and was about to post it! Whatevs, I'll post my version too.
My windows marine
>>25739095That's even better.
>>25739095haha oh godthe shame of being put through a window by someone who looks like that
Chapter tactics: portal fighterThe anticipation of carrying out the execution of an enemy in the finest tradition of the chapter simply makes the marines fight harder. Whenever a Defenestrator marine is within 2" of a window, or attacks an enemy model within 2" of a window, he gains the preferred enemy special rule.
>>25739095I think it still needs, like, a rainbow skull on their chest plate or something
At some point something needs to happen with the line "It's curtains for you."
>>25739419Oh god my sides
Do they approve of killing heretics by throwing other heretics through windows at them?
>>25739652indeedBtw, CAPTCHA seems to think that a Defenestrarot officer is called Zelett. Let´s not dissapoint it
>>25739095YES. With a windows-skull in the middle.
87 years in ms paint later, an attempt at a chapter icon.I figured that since we're dark angels successors and we have a window fetish, a DA icon in a window might be a good place to start.
Chaos Defenestrators:Fallen defenstrators who began to despise the breaking of windows, and started using them to summon daemons of Tzeentch
>>25739913We kill them by throwing them through the windows they break.But why Tzeentch? Surely Tzeentch would be pleased by the window changing from whole to broken.To take excessive pride in your work is Slaanesh's domain, I think.
>>25739864Every second marine will be totally useless, it's brilliant!
Fuck the Angry Marines, this is the shit right here.
>>25739963Of course, they're made into MORE WINDOWS.
>>25738692I just thought of something. Yes, the defenestrators make great windows. but they make two types. one they use for fighting with and the vast majority they sell to the rest of the imperium (the various orders, the administratum, other SM chapters, even the Navy and others) for good money. (ever notice that many of the other buildings have so many windows? guess who made them) This chapter should be well financed and equipped with the best gear, arms, armor, and transports around. they could well be building battle barges of their own. what the Black crusaders have to move around to deal with xenos, the defenestrators have to do with those chaos cults. (they DO seem to pop up everywhere).
>>25739864this could only be bettered if someone painted a real SM fig like this. (chest symbol optional to me)
>>25740131Good lord, just think how many fancy toys they can afford from the outfitting of even one of the navies space-cathedrals/battleships.
>>25740046....(thinks about it) dear god, the Angry Marines might not like the Defenestrators, but they would give some grudging respect. tossing a foe though a window is a hell of an angry act, yet awesome.
LOOK!WINDOWS!WINDOWS!Our enemies hide behind glass panes, the cowards!We shall take away their glass panes.
>>25740186Can someone come up with a quote from an Angry Marine Chaplain after being kicked through eighteen windows by the Angels of Defenestration 1st [ORGANIZATIONAL UNIT] Champion?
>>25740174there are WINDOWS EVERYWHERE in the Empire! this chapter could be raking it in faster than anyone could realize! they could be a back door funnel of money transfure to their parent chapter if they still keep any sort of ties to them.
Rolled 95>>25740186rumor has it, an angry marine witnessed a defenestrator confronted with a word bearer stained glass window. when asked later about the incident, he only had these words to say "THE CRAZY ASS WINDOW FUCKERS? THOSE PSYCHO SHITS ARE ALRIGHT"
>>25740229although, this chapter aims to hunt chaos cults first, i can see them hating Tau as well. the Tau don't seem to use or like windows as much. everyone hates the 'nids and orks. they don't use windows at all.
>>25740295There's a band of blood axes who after seeing one of the stained glass pictures of the Emperor, got inspired (after their boss hit the ground), to attempt to make their own.They havn't gotten the hang of glass though, so it's more of a big sheet of metal scraps in a vague depiction of gork or mork. Filled with bullet holes, because you need to be able to see through it. That's how ya know it's a window.
>>25740159First man to paint a Defenestrator, complete with translucent window-standard, earns himself a spot in my heart.
>>25740230FUCK YOUR WINDOWS!
>>25740334to a Defenestrator SM, upon seeing what those Green skins made, would either think "they are getting clever" or "THEY MOCK US!"
>>25740230FUCKING GLASS IN MY FUCKING NECK AND SHIT FUCKSAKE YOU FUCKING PRICK
>>25740468Blood Axez get hired as mercenaries. I can see the Defenestrators not-hating-as-much them.
>>25740468It varies. Generally towards the latter, especially when Meks keep asking (via vox/orky loudhailer) why their windows don't have any dakka.
>>25740559Dats cuz windows is CHOPPY ya grot!
>>25740239Can we get a quote from the Reasonable Marines, the Classy Marines, and the Galactic Partridges?
>>25740235dude, termintor and artifact armor for all of them with the best guns around with that much bankroll.
>>25740682yea, they want to buy in bulk from them.
>>25740699The Reasonable Marines wanted stained glass windows for their command bridges, since the Defenestrators make the hardiest windows in the galaxy. The Partridges attempted to claim credit for their window design, but their delegation was redirected through some kind of meteoritic debris field made of silicon.And the Classy Marines ordered all their Power Monocles from the Defenestrators, on the condition that they drive very small enemies through them on occasion.
>>25740682>Galactic PartridgesThe greatest artisans of the Defenestraters spend decades on the seventeen-story-high stained glass masterpiece that graces the eastmost face of the High Chapel of Per'tree. All craftsmanship is of the highest quality. On the window is an image of a space marine. On the window is an image of a chaos demon. The space marine is striking down the chaos demon. The image relates to every single glorious battle the Partridges ever fought.
>>25740747And then they dropkicked the Partridge First Company through it.
>We Stand Alone>nobody likes usThe Defenestrators and the Adeptus Estates have a long and bitter history with one another, thanks to the operational methods of the former being in direct competition with the common goal of the latter.Seige warfare and perpetually broken windows play merry hell with property value and insurance rates
Pane-cleaner Jalouise Venetian glared at the heretic before him. The man, if you could call him that; was radiating the unholy power of the chaos gods. Across the great Catedral, the dead laid scattered. Their blood now covering the glorious windowpanes of the hall. "The arrogance" Jalousie thought to himself as he let his gaze rest upon the once immaculate windows of the halls.The unholy man infront of Jalousie suddenly charged, apparently unfazed by the hulking space marine. "Such arrogance" Jalouise mumbled too himself, while moving into his preferred fighting stance.The heretic screamed, the panes of the halls vibrating as if in pain.Jalouise raised his right hand above his head and uttered the holy words "By the will of Janus and the light of the God Emperor...".The force of the two fingers as they entered the heretics skull through his eyes causes a shock wave that lifted the dust of the ground and shattered the tainted windows of the holy cathedral.Jalousie watched the heretics body fell to pieces as if to match the state of the windows, then uttered the final words "...The windows to the impure soul shall shatter ".
>>25740732Shit, combat power-monocles? I want one.
>>25740934no, baleful eye...with a monocle lense to help aim the beam!
>>25739941That's a good point, and I forgot that the Defenestrators don't field psykers either, so Slaanesh it is
>>25740802Shit anon.This is awesome.You should feel proud. It's allowed in this case. Well done. Tactical Eye-poke is epic.
>>25740802Weaponized Three Stoogies eyepoke, with an awesome one liner?This pleases me.
>>25741040i guess they a modded version of a power/force fist weapons along side thunderhammers for melee weapons. but what do you think they would used for range weapons?
>>25741085lot of meltas
>>25741085Melta and plasma guns so as to heat sand and/or heretics into glass
>>25741085>All ranged weapons have double barrels, placed at such a distance that a perfect shot in the opponents face will crush both his eyes at the same time.
Is there anything in the 40k universe that can freeze opponents?
>>25741085since they are siege based, some kind of sonic / shattering weapon?
>>25741138There are shock weapons that can induce paralysis
>>25741139They're Slaaneshi counterpart can use their Noise cannons to break windows!
Quick mock up
>>25741284They shoulderpads should look like that.
best chapter ever
>>25741284That's pretty awesome
The Defenestrators lie in the thick of battle with the chaos Word Bearers. The heretics have summoned a bloodletter of Khorne and the battle seems lost for the Lords of Glass. From atop their great battle barge, the Glass Ceiling, Glazier Fenestrus convenes with the tribunal of Clerestory on how to turn the tides. After much collaboration, Lord Fenestrus knows what he must do-
>>25734894I'm okay with defenestration being the chapter trials - you're tossed onto a hostile, dead, feral world and if you manage to last until the angels come back, you're welcomed into the chapter.Sororitas have a few secret things on the planet that help make the trials truly trying, and in typical dark angels theme recruits are those who are suspect of heretical guilt. If you live you were innocent, if you die you were guilty. Sororitas are actually heavily involved in our recruitment processes.>>25734480Our chapter master died on this world, which is the only reason we even bother with it. Otherwise we're a chapter fleet. Other chapters dislike us for recruiting 'heretics' (which we laugh at, because they proved their innocence by living, The Emperor Protects) and not following codex. Would be acolytes die in hundreds of thousands, but just enough survive that we're able to keep our chapter at full strength.Our enemies are a mix of word bearers and iron warriors.Sound good?
>>25735853>>25735826I'm not overly fond of the recurring theme of 'toss dem out da windowz lulz'. But I do think it would be an adequate recruitment practice - anyone under suspicion of heresy is rounded up by the sororitas and turned over to us in the hundreds of thousands. We throw them onto the planet we 'rule', If they're guilty they die, if they're innocent they live. We recruit from the innocent, anyone we don't recruit either goes into a 'penal legion' of guardsmen, the ecclesiarchy (having proven their innocence) or the sororitas.
>>25741567Since there aren't enough windows to kick that horde out. You better be crashing your entire fleet into the horde.That's the only thing that's hardcore and silly enough for our chapter.
-On the battlefield the Bloodletter has been cleaving its way through the battlefield, charging past all windows and shattering them with its pounding footsteps. As the battle seems all but lost, Glazier Fenestrus blasts in a glass drop pod, that blows into pieces as it lands, impaling dozens of heretics with glass. As the Glazier stands, the nearby Defenestrators fall to theirs knees in glory as they behold what their Lord has brought with him. From the crater of the drop pod, the Holy Screen Door of the Emperor stands tall.
>>25741724>Screen doorNo just no
Lord Fenestrus, wielding dual power fists with combi meltas, begins to fire at the Bloodletter to attract its attention. As the Bloodletter begins to charge the Glazier, Fenestrus toys with it surrounding the screen door, like a Matador with a bull. Finally, as the Bloodletter begins to tire, Fenestrus, along with any nearby Defenestrator, grabs ahold of the Bloodletter and throws it with such force that nearby heretics are obliterated as the Bloodletter smashes through them, flying directly for the Emperors Holy Screen Door-
>>25741867>Bloodletter>TireU Fooken Wat M8?
The Bloodletters body is nearly obliterated by the force of the throw, and is shredded by the glass of the Holy Screen Door. As the Bloodletter gives its last breaths on the matterium, the Defenestrators stop to revel in the daemons destruction, but the vile heretics took advantage of this pause, and began to flood the glass breakers. One by one even more daemons were summoned, and the Defenestrators believed the planet to be lost. The ground troops received an order for a full retreat by the Glass Ceiling, and the Glass breakers slowly withdrew, for they knew what was to come-
>>25741937Sod off m8, just go with it
I'm surprised no one has mentioned this guy yet.The Defenestrator is a guy from the DC comic Hitman, a member of the wannabe superhero team Section 8. He doesn't have any superpowers, he just carries around a window as a weapon.Of course, in 40k, such a window would have to have be thousands of years old Chapter Relic, sanctified by a dozen saints, and meticulously repaired after every battle.
As the remaining Defenstrators returned to their ship, the Glass Ceiling began to reposition itself above the planet. At this point in the battle, the solar systems star had been at the peak of the sky, only to be partially blocked by the Glass Ceiling moving into its center, and then as the heretics on the ground cheered at their assumed victory, the Glass Ceiling flipped its Venetian gates, revealing its method of exterminatus- the Glassus Magnificus. A great fiery beam, concentrated from the nearby star, shot forth unto the planet, incinerating the heretics below and turning all sand below into molten glass. As the Glass Ceiling aimed its flaming pillar it released untold thousands of windows upon the remaining heretics, shredding any and all that survived the flames.
>>25741937>tire>beginning to feel the Warp drawing at its essence because it hasn't killed anything in a whileSame thing, different name.
So that's my attempt at write faggotry, what do you guys think, ignoring the Bloodletter issue.

>>25738820I'm all for this colour scheme.
