Welcome to the first Rusoya Sector building thread, where we combine Russians, Inuits, Frank Herbert and Aztec themed AdmechsThread Links:http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Sector_Rusoyahttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ice_Wraithshttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hive_Fleet_Mi-gohttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Night_Wolveshttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Wayward_Sonshttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/Terindom_Civil_Reparation_RegimentTopic of the thread today: fluffing the Wayward Sons Xenos compadres and doing more work on the Ice Wraiths.(The image is a placeholder)
The Wayward Sons use the xeno species Fatta'il, a xeno capable of expelling poisonous anal discharge, granting a boon to the CSM. bump
Anyone seen Icemaker, Pagefag or Warbanon v3/v2?
>>39482430I'M WATCHING YOU SHITS, WHAT YOU NEED.
>>39482487HOLY FUCK, GUYS. GUYS. WHAT IF WE COMBINE RUSSIANANDVIKING THEMES. FOR ICE WRAITHS, FOR MAXIMUM YES.YES/NO?
>>39482683Meh. Vikings. They are already russian/inuit.
This sector is nice, but should we really be working on these all at once? I mean, the emperor's nightmares have over Twenty threads worth of fleshing out. We aren't even close to that with Ice Wraiths.
>>39482803I made this so we would have one place to work out all the details for sector related stuff we already have.
>>39482430I'm here. I'll chime in when needed
>>39482934>>39483009Great. All the namefags are here. Now, a point I've been meaning to make is: can we somehow obtain a fancy chapter organisation chart like the Emperor's nightmares?
>>39483033Well in theory yes. All of the ones on the wiki that I've seen seem, to be made by the same person but I'm sure there's a template out there somewhere
>>39483067There is. I managed to track the original template down on deviantart, belonging to one "Blazbaros". He has a photoshop-editable file of it linked for download on the page itself. If one of us has the tools, we could do it.
>>39483171YOU KNOW.YOU COULD HAVE LINKED THE DEVIANT ART POST TOO. NOT THAT IT MATTERS IN BIGGER SPECTRUM BECAUSE WE CAN DO IT OURSELVES BUT.YOU KNOW.IT WOULD CUT THIS ENOUGH TIME TO MAKE IT MORE COMFY.
>>39483171Eeeeeeexcellent. Now we just need someone who can actually photoshop
>>39483197Our problem is we dont have any drawfags or even photoshopfags. We are stuck with writefags and imagination
I can photoshop fairly ok but I got class now. If we still need this chart modified i'll do it later today on break (US Time)
>>39483195My phone sucks. Let's leave it at that.>>39483213I'm sure we have at least one photoshopfag.
>>39483237We eagerly await your return.Hehe I'm finished class for the year
>>39483213There must be some summoning ritual for drawfags.
>>39483275I don't think we have the necessary sacrifices on hand
>>39483282We could try culling the yetis.
>>39483296NEVER. YOU SPEAK HERESY.
>>39483305....Culling the Wendigos then?
>>39483326We already do that... after we use them to shock and terrify our enemies. Have you not read our annals Brother?
>>39483343Mate I've been here since the start. And in all this time I've had just one question. How are the more agressive charging marines and the calmer, stealthier marines? Is it by company? ANSWER MY QUESTIONS.
>>39483379How are they separated? By company. I always worked on the assumption that each Captain had his own preferences and would recruit those with skill sets that match what the captain wants. That way each company has a specialization that is a continued tradition
>>39483404So we have about an even 4/4 split, not counting veteran and scout companies perhaps? Maybe the even numbers are agressive, the odd ones are stealthy?
>>39483469Well It depends on each Captain. I would think the majority would be stealthy as that's the Doctrine that the first lord marshal taught. Going against that would been seen as an insult in some cases cause ancestor worship.As it stands right now we have 2 confirmed companies with specialties>3rd CompanyCommanded By captain Alexandrovich with Veteran Sergeant Ivan as 2nd in Command. They specialize in cryoweapons and Unorthodox tactics>7th CompanyCommanded by Captain Grigari. This is the most aggressive company and specializes in hammer-blow assaults and heavy coordination with yetis
>>39483546Perhaps a 2/6 split would be best then? Additionally, We should try and flesh out the other companies and their captains.
Captain Palvo of the 4th company. Famous for his stealth tactics. He has been know to have his mean use a well placed ambush to imitate combat against enemy forces. One of his famous maneuvers is the black yeti pattern. Making a mixture of bolter fire and rip and tear the two fire teams are able to demoralize the enemy quickly with over whelming firepower while the other squads get in close for the kill.
>>39483546>ArmoryForge Father Chekhov>Chapter masterLord Marshal Riddick XXII>ApothercarionMaster Apothecary VrachThese are the three I have, we still need commanders for the other 7/8(two assault companies) companies and the veterans.
>Captain Shalashaska of the 9th.Known for the absolute ghost-like qualities of his marines. The captain and his men are the undisputed masters of stealth warfare among the wraiths, able to complete objectives without even their brothers knowing they have been there. it was said that the 9th company was favoured in the chapter during the time of the first lord marshal
>>39483724So are we going two assault squads or two scout squads?
>>39483673>>39483724These. These are good. That makes 4 of the ten companies.
>>39483744Assault Squads. Scouts are in the 10th exclusively Also things brings up another point.All companies other that 1st and 10th are battle companies. We dont have dedicated support, assault, or devastator companies.Also We only have ~500 marines. I was thinking that 7th and 2nd Companies are the Aggressive ones but currently the 2nd is wiped out, none left and the 7th company only has ~25 marines
>>39483769Due to casualties fighting Mi-go on Nixarteria of course
That sounds like a good plan to me. Who is our master of recruits ? I imagine he's the hardest man on this side of the Galaxy
I was also reading "brothers of the snake" the other day and their recruitment style fits somewhat with our chapter.I think we have each recruit hand-picked after a demonstration of his various skills by captains who need to fill gaps in the ranks. That way each company always keeps their specialty and we have a unique way of recruitment into the various compaines>>39483798I don't know... I mean... Shalashaska is actually an obscure MGS reference... hence the idea for stealth-focussed... It should be a name that makes sense... I also made an oblique reference to an actual british general and operation market garden in the guard regiment as well yesterday
>2nd Company The Second Company of the Ice Wraiths is currently empty as a result of the casualties wrought by Hive-Fleet Mi-go. The former marines of the company under Captain Ylntez were the Ice Wraiths specialists at siege warfare and building and taking fortifications. The company was wiped out after their positions being cut off during the height of the Mi-go invasion.

>>39483982And its outdated because is lists Putinus as chapter master instead of sergeant.
>>39483994Well to be fair didn't we have Putinus slay the former chapter master to take control of the chapter?
>>39483962Do these companies have names?
>>39484019Not yet. I'm including what we have on the page as we speak but I don't think we have names yet
If you want a brothers of the snake reference we could have each company be named for the original company captain
>>39484123nah wasn't wanting a reference, just their method of recruiting (slightly modified) fits our chapter and it's organization thats all
>>39484155We should come up with some kind od naming scheme though.
>>39484250I think we should hammer out a specialty for each company first, then we figure out names. So far we have specialties for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 7th, and 9th companies. The 1st company veterans would be a hodge-podge of veterans. I'm thinking 1 representative squad from each company. Then 10th is obviously our scout company. That leaves 5,6, and 8
FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO NAME EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE CHAPTER.NAMING EVERY SINGLE CAPTAIN/STANDARD BEARER/ETC FOR EACH COMPANY IS KINDA EXCESSIVE.
>>39484336All the company captains should be named though. It'lI help with that organization chart.
>>39484336We have to name each captain and each member of the command staff. I wasn't going beyond that
>>39484372Perhaps 5th Squad could be the most tech-centric, with close ties to Forgefather Chekov.
>>394843995th company? That could work
>>39484399I need a name for the captain of the 5th
I always thought we should have one of these chapters we roll up have a close tie to a Rogue Trader Dynasty and that a portion of the battle-brothers serve as a retinue for the Trader as they go to plunder new worlds beyond the reach of the Imperium...
>>39484517That already exists. I'm trying to find it>>39484399>>39484516>5th Company Known to be the most tech-centric company of the chapter, the 5th company maintains close ties with the armoury and the Forgefather of the chapter. Captain Zuchov is rumoured to be more machine than man these days and his marines and their yetis are heavily augmented. The 5th company will often go to war under the command of Forgefather Chekhov, Captain Zuchov subordinating himself to the master of the armoury.
>>39484478>5th Company, lead by captain PolinkovThe 5th Company of the Ice Wraiths specialize in the maintenance and operation of advanced technology, leading them to wield a higher number of cryo weapons. Also noticable is the company's high level of cyber-cyber-enhancement, often having more replacement parts than other chapters. The company is able to perform maintenance on these enhancements while in the field. Unlike most other Ice Wraiths Companies, the 5th Company utilize vechiles as well as the traditional yeti mount.
>>39484574>>39484592Dangit. Maybe use some of both?
>>39484592We already have the 3rd company maintaining more cryo-weapons than everyone else, but the other stuff looks good I'll see what i can combine from the two
>>39484592>>39484607I combined the aspects of these two that I could.>5th CompanyKnown to be the most tech-centric company of the chapter, the 5th company maintains close ties with the armoury and the Forgefather of the chapter. Captain Polinkov is rumoured to be more machine than man these days and his marines and their yetis are heavily augmented sometimes on par of those of the Iron Hands chapter. The company is also able to maintain and repair these augments even in the heat of battle. The 5th company will often go to war under the command of Forgefather Chekhov, Captain Polinkov subordinating himself to the master of the armoury and because of this are known to make use of most of the relatively small vehicle pool of the Ice Wraiths.
>>394845926th Company, led by Captain Yurovitch.The 6th Company has a reputation for showing off. Focusing on the fear aspect of war without subtlety, the Company commonly uses Drill pods due to the shock they produce. In addition, members of the Company are known to utilize chainswords rather than the more plain and subtle weapons that are more widely used in the chapter. They claim that this is due to how the revving of chainswords is effective at breaking enemy morale and cohesion. Captain Yurovitch himself uses a larger model of chainswords and is known for slicing apart enemy cover as he charges across the battlefield.
8th Company-calmest and biggest of them all. They were ordered to fight Hive Fleet Behemoth and defend Rusoya but due the Wayward Sons dickery,Nids mutated and 6th company was mostly wiped out. Remaing marines are now either Red Wengios,or died trying to get revenge
>>39484814They were company to answer calls for help, they were going to the crusade etc. They were propably only Ice Wraiths that felt comfortable in temparature higher than 0. Their doctrine were space battles,orbital bombardments and that kind of stuff.>>39484814Meant 8th company
>>39484793I like it. it's unique and it touches on the fear aspect of the chapter that we talked about in the earlier threads but forgot about. Copy/pasted directly on to the page>>39484814We already have a company that was wiped out by 'nids (2nd company slaughtered by Mi-go) and in our previous fluff as soon as a marine falls to the Wendigo curse he is considered "dead" by his brothers and struck from the roster. Wedigos aren't part of any company
>>3948488690% of Chapter is still fine after one company falling. That is under strength,but nothing significant. And Wendigos aren't part of any company-they are just what is left from 6th.
>>39484938No the point is that all companies have taken casualties. and are mostly around 50% strength. We have the 2nd company gone. Like completely gone. 108 marines dead. The 7th company is down to 24 marines after trying to reach the 2nd and rescue them. Wendigos also are our manifestation of the Red thirst or Black rage so any marine from any company can fall to it. Wendigos are also not counted on the chapter roster, meaning we have more marines than we "officially" recognize but due to their nature and the degradation of the stealth suits they wear, they are always killed during their first engagement as a wendigo, sent down without support ahead of the main forces
>>39484938We could always have 8th focus on our psykers.>>39484886Yeah. Also came from a piece of writefaggotry that had them using chainswords, and the justifications for it.
>>39484992Someday we really need a drawfag to draw Wendigo armor.
>>39485001There's an idea. We have the 5th with close ties to the armoury, we could have the 8th with close ties to the librarium being constantly hounded and under suspicion from the Chaplains.>>39485018that we do. Drawfags are desperately needed for the entire project
>>39484992>>39485001So maybe 8th are our Librarium/blood ritual/totally not psyker guys? They debuff enemies before fight,they conjure blizzards,help Wraiths to hide themselves,and make Inquisition forget why they came here?I like it
>>39485041I like it
>>39485031>>39485041Basically. I won'twon't be able to describe it though. One of you should fluff it.
I've already done 1,2,3,7,9 and 10. Why don't you do it Warbanon
Also I need a name for the Captain of the first company
8th Company led by captain sangiqukk Asimov.Known for close ties with Librarium, instead of fury or heavy weapons they use only their own minds. Most of the marines from the 8th are all more or less psykers,and their energy fuels snowstorms and blizzards that happen around them.All of the commanders of the 8th are psykers-they are focusing powers of their company and manifest them at their enemies. Captain is accompanied by squad of psykers-it is said they can make even hottest jungles frozen wastelands just with their physic powers.
Chief Librarian Arnem Arztzhoka?
>>39485308>>39485322There are two of you... By the Emperor!
>>39485361Three actually, ol' v3 hasn't shown up yet.
>>39485361acutally there are 3 of us-v3 is just sick todayAlso we have 3 warbanons and only 2 warbands.It just doesnt seem right
>>39485388You have a point... but we already have so many enemies and only 2 imperial foces. Plus we need some xenos before more chaos... maybe a chaos cult later?
>>39485388Since this looks pretty cool, may i help in the creation of a warband?
oh also i just archived this thread and added it to the Sector Rusoya page and the Ice Wraith page. Let's try and keep the thread organized according to content
>>39485428We have too many enemies in this sector-just see link at OP>>39485421Night Wolves rolled to attract smaller cults so maybe one of the cult isnt that small?
>>39485464Can i help roll up a fellow space marine chapter?
>>39485464A cult works>>39485495We're actually trying to flesh out what we have more right now. Eventually we'll get to rolling up more stuff but i believe we had some anons wanting to roll up an imperial guard regiment next. We're almost finished the ice Wraiths and I finished the Terindom regiments yesterday. What do we work on now? The chaos warbands? Mi-go?
>>39485545Maybe Night Wolves? Then we could roll on cults
>>39485581Sure. Alright then. Firstly is there anything on the Ice Wraiths that we're missing? Aside from needing writefaggotry and me needing to delete/re-do the heroes section. I think we are pretty much done with the wraiths (again writefaggotry is still heartily encouraged)
>>39485625Fleet and contacts with the rest of the Imperium.
>>39485645I think we are defending our chapter and not doing more then that-we have enough enemies over here. Also our sector is full of snow and cold and we like to fight on it. And our fleet is rather small-nothing to fight space battles,just for transporation. Maybe 1 Battle Barge max
>>39485645>FleetA strike cruiser for each company 2-10 and a battle barge for the 1st company/chapter master.>Contacts with the rest of imperiumThanks for reminding me. I gotta make a section for that. We're pretty isolationist anyway though>Reminds me: Honour/Sanguinary Guard. We don't have that yet
>>39485711>Honour/Sanguinary Guard.Propably they are just elite marines from 1st company and/or sneakiest motherfuckers around that use silent jump packs and have weapons made of ice or something similiar
>>39485757What should we call them? Are they part of the first company?
>>39485768If Sanguinary Guard are part of the 1st company they are too. If not,well they are not. And i have no idea about the name
>>39485814I don't actually know anything about the BAs my personal army is Space Wolves or Death Guard and my own chapter the Void Falcons.
>>39485768>>39485814Call them:>Ice shadows>Snow kings>Vampire hunters>Death shades>Bringers of ice/Ice bringers>(Insert Cold/Death related name)
>>39485871What about the Marshal's Shades?
>>39485896I kekked. Sure why not.
>>39485896I like shades but I don't think marshals sound great ,i think them specialising in stealth is a tops idea though
I think the honour guard should be renowned for being cold and uncaring for anything other than loyalty and there objective, anyone standing in there way will cut down and all other marines are lesser bar commanding officers and other superiors
>>39486019So just super edgy? Could work
>>39485495>>39485923SCUSE ME. WHO IS YOU ANOTHER FELLOW TRIPNAMEFAG?
>>39486071A fag. Nothing more and nothing less. Dont often tripfag in other places though, so if you all want me to turn it off i can.
>>39486071Now now OP calm down. We are welcoming here and he wants to help.>>39486124It's all good. Icemaker is the OP of the original ice Wraith thread and he is always all-caps all the time
>>39486124IT'S NOT ABOUT TELLING YOU TO STOP TRIPPING. IT'S ABOUT WANTING TO KNOW WHO'S YOU.AS MUCH AS I AM PASSIVE, HAVING PEOPLE COME HERE AND SEE 10 NAMETRIPFAGS WHO DON'T REALLY _NEED_ THE TRIP WILL MAKE THESE THREADS LOOK LIKE A HUGCIRCLEJERK BOX.
>>39486137I IS OF NOT MAD MY FRIEND WORRY NOT.TRIP AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, BUT BEWARE OF SPIRALLING DOWNWARDS INTO DOUCHEBAGGERY OF THE TRIP. IT'S A SMALL LINE WE TREAD I SAY.
>>39486069Im not liking this super edgy idea. They are honor guard with some fancy name not because they are like typical /tg/ user in high school,but beacause they are the best of the best. Even more-they need to be really calm and peaceful cause they cant fall to Black Rage when defending Riddick
>LibrariumThe Librarium of the the Ice Wraiths is led by Chief Librarian Arnem Arztzokha, more commonly known as "Icemaker".
>>39486165You do have a point there Icemaker>>39486249You also have a point... Idk someone just make some fluff for the honour guard and I'll put it on the page. I'm creatively tired from Yesterday and today...
>>39486314>ICEMAKER>ARZTZOKHAI SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.
>>39486363Da, Is point of my post, you deserve place in this chapter.
>>39486358How about they try to emulate ice through its cold lethality and its ability to be held in an almost stasis like state
>>39486314>>39486363I don't get it....
>>39486408GO PLAY 'PAPERS, PLEASE' RIGHT THIS MOMENT YOU SHIT.
>>39486422>>39486423Ah I 50% get it now. I played that game on a friend's computer once. It was good, but not my thing (pic related)AAAAAANNNNYYYYway getting back to the topic at hand. Honour Guard
>>39486495IF WE STILL NEED TO SET ON THE SECURITY FOR CHAPTER MASTER.ANY OF YOU WATCHED NEWEST RIDDICK MOVIE? YOU SEEN THE HYENA DOG THING? HOW ABOUT USING THAT AS A BASE?
>>39486549That movie was alright. It was 14A in Canada the week of release then bumped to 18A the next week... hehe I still remember the horrified parents with their 11 year olds while my friend and I laughed>IF WE STILL NEED TO SET ON THE SECURITY FOR CHAPTER MASTERSorry OP no idea what you mean
>>39486605ISN'T HONOUR GUARD MEANT TO PROTECT CHAPTER MASTER? THAT'S WHAT I MEAN.
>>39486650Ah ok yeah that makes sense. But how do we apply that to space marines?
>>39486697I DON'T FUCKING KNOW THAT'S NOT MY JOB IS IT.MAYBE NAME, REFERENCE, SOMETHING. I JUST THROW RANDOM SHIT.MAN THIS IS THE FIRST TOPIC I AM SO ACTIVE IN.
I have returned somebody throw me the stuff for the chapter!
>>39486802SOMEONE QUICKLY THROW THE TEMPLATE AT HIM TO PHOTOSHOP THE FUCK OUT OF.
>>39486802Here>>394831711d4chan Page is up to date as of now
>>39486875The machine spirit has granted me to get it working. Here we go
>>39487079Standing by for queries and assistance
>>39487099holy fuck this template. This is going to be a way longer experience then i though. expect 3-5 hours worth of work. Maybe done by tonight or tomorrow
>>39487496That bad huh?
>>39487511Its poorly laid out and really done up badly. Not at all how I would have done it. Still Will be posting updates short for font test and teasers
>>39487537EMPEROR'S SPEED, FELLOW NAMEFAG.
>>39487537Omnissiah bless you i\
First teaser. That was a LOT of useless layers to get rid of. You guys discuss among yourselves what you what the rest of them to be named. I need a quick snack / drink before i begin again
>>39488210Quick! compile a list of name/personalities for the thingie!
>>39488210>Chief LibrarianArnem Arztzokha the "Ice Maker">Master of the ForgeForgefather ChekhovWould like to point out the chapter doesn't have official devastator squads. It would be 8 tacticals and 2 assault squads for all companies other than 1 and 10
>>39488328Just a test to see how you all liked it. Open this sucker up on my works computer. Now (was tryin to avoid that to save time) Much easier to organize .
>>39488313>1st captainStrelik>2nd CaptainYlntez (technically dead)>3rd CaptainLooking good>4th CaptainPalvo>5th CaptainPolinkov>6th CaptainYurovitch>7th CaptainGrigari>8th CaptainCaptain-Sangiqukk Asimov>9th CaptainShalashaska>10th CaptainNo name yet

(This is the tripfag from earlier)So what can i help with now that im back?
I MUST LEAVE FOR MY SLUMBER. MY POWERS CAN WORK FOR ONLY SO LONG. CATCH YOU SHITS LATER.>>39488462NAME FOR 10TH COMPANY CAPTAIN AND SOME TIDBITS OF LORE/WRITEFAGGOTRY/DRAWFAGGOTRY, PICK YOUR POISON.
>>39488396>>39488410>>39488313Another thing to think about. Do we want the thingy to be before or after the Mi-go invasion? Before means a full chapter, after is more current with our fluff but we would have to agree on numbers and do some math
>>39488637Full chapter. Our current organisation is a mess thanks to chaos and nids
>>39488700That's what I was thinking but i figured i would put it out there
I was in this thread earlier... and I asked about a rogue trader in the area and someone said that was already done? I wanted to know if anyone had any information on that?
>>39489933Yes, you asked about a chapter that had a close relationship with a rogue trader and used some of the Marines as an honour guard if I remember. It has already been done. Not in this thread or in the Sector Rusoya Project but there is a chapter on 1d4chan exactly like that, I spent about 20 minutes trying to find it to no avail though
>>39489933Finally found it. Here you are anon>http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Conservators
Up you go. Bump
Changed the legs a bit, sort of an idea for what the yetis might look like?
>>39494057Ah, the yeti artist. I think it looks good, matches what we have about the yetis.
>>39494057make the legs a bit shorter and give him either a lion mane or a baboon coat around the shoulder area
>>39494189Holy crap it's you! The yeti dreadnought guy!
>>39494212...I forgot to turn my name of
>>39494322Dammit man, you got my hopes up! I thought we were gonna see more hillarious antics!
>>39494696head is a bit too far up now, and i meant only the hindlegs, not the arms aswell
>>39494696Hey I like this one
>>39495106Nice. It works rather well.
>>39495106WE RIDE TO VICTORY!
>>39496258Bump this shizazz.
>>39488328What powers would Arztzokha have? Can he make glaciers from thin air? Call in hail to pester and wear down the enemies of Man? What can he do? I wasn't in these threads for a while.How are the yetis? Frosty? And what are those Air Cavalry IG that I keep hearing? Some kind of Vietnam-themed, Gomer Pyle shitstain of a regiment?
>>39498164Cold based stuff, essentially.
>>39498164The IG regiment has a page, and no it's not air cav, it's a mechanized regiment.Link in the OP
i was tired, and boredand there might be another experiment tomorrow involving a dreadnaught, a mixer, and multiple dead marines tomorrow
>>39499199Huh. At least it's something. Nice job.
>>39499199I actually really like it, drawfag. Kudos to you
>>39499442Is the yeti design on the page yet?
>>39499199It looks boss. Nice redesign on the pauldrons by the way. Is that a chainaxe.
>>39499509No it's not but that's gonna have to wait for tomorrow. It's 12:30 here and I gotta sleep
>>39495106I'm picturing our 7th company riding past some thunderwolf cavalry and yelling "SUCK IT, SPACE WOLVES!"
>>39499065The Sky Sharks, son. Still, I find it confusing that a regiment in a jungle world with thick bush and giant dinosaurs would love mechanized warfare. I thought it would be more like Vietnam, you know? Pointman with his lasgun put to full power, using his tracking abilities while the heavy weapons man carries a shortened and lightened bolter and a guy with a mortar or something.
>>39495106This guy needs a tail. A small, shrubby one.
>>39499672We go according to what the rolls say. Also I am aware of the sky sharks. I came up with and wrote 99% of the content on that page
>>39499672Also the sky sharks are based not on Vietnam at all. They are the British 1st airbourne. The entire thing was a reference to operation market garden from ww2. The commanders name, the tactics used, I even explicitly put "market garden" in there
>>39499767Hm. I did get the WW2 reference. What is Sector Russiya anyway? Are we even done fluffing the Ice Wraiths? What sort of mishaps happen when the psykers screw up? Temperatures suddenly dropping? Explosive blast of frostbite?
>>39499860Their blood is teleported outide their body.
>>39499880Holy fuck. What a horrible way to die, by the Emperor.
>>39499909Or it freezes.
>>39499824Ok. When that thing gets "attachments" to it, it needs a saddle affixed to its metal body. There should also be famous yetis. Like "Rudolph the Red", "Szank Klaus" or something.
>>39499952That is a more horrible way to die. Can the Apothecaries heal them? Freeze them and give them wild Yeti blood or something.
>>39499983They'd be in the 7th company for sure.
>>39500014They're already frozen. Only in rare cases does a screw up not kill the mystic.
>>39500030Is the drawfag here? He needs to take note and draw these characters. Maybe Rudolph the Red had his nose replaced with a metal one to ram better Tyranids and Orks? And Szank Claus delivers "gifts" from the Emperor?
>>39500054Man, I feel bad for those librarians. It would be hilarious though. Imagine fighting one of them only to be drenched in ice-cold blood and a dead Librarian in front of you. Or having them explode due to their blood freezing.
>>39500079We're a more serious chapter. We don't use on the nose references like that.
>>39495106>>39499199I can dig both.I'm lazy, but let's see...From orbit, one would hardly guess that (Tindalos?) was a forgeworld. Nowhere were the rad blasted industrial wastes or the kilometers high Manufactorum stacks.Instead, (Tindalos?) is an orb of blues and greens.Brother Kutkh Wagaash, 8th Company, watched a storm rising in the equatorial seas and waited for the Mechanicum Legate. Though the Forgeworld had long worked alongside the Ice Wraiths, Brother Wagaash chafed under the idea that his first official command role would be shared with some half-machine tech-adept. Wagaash had heard that most Mechanicum warleaders, if they even deserved the term, preferred to lead from orbit, and those that did descend to the planet below treated combat as some sort of abstracted exercise in mathematics.Still, Wagaash had seen the storm-cloud clad Skitarii deployed while still a scout and knew they fought well.Wagaash wondered idly whether the manufactorae were buried underground or if the trees were grown atop their roofs and why the mechanicum would tolerate such biogenic disorder.Then again, there were many things that didn't add up about these Magi of Tindalos. This station, for example. The rooms were capacious, this chapel he was waiting was an exercise in open spaces. The walls were left bare, not in the minimalist efficiency of the machine, but so as to focus the view on the planet below and to draw attention to the few mechanicum sigils that did adorn the walls.Wagaash was also surprised to notice niches adorned with wall scrolls and the skulls of xenos beasts, not all that dissimilar to memory shrines of his own chapter.With a soft hiss, the doors opened and a figure robed in an iridescent blue-green entered, followed by a servo skull and a dictat-servitor."Beautiful, isn't it?"The voice was only incidentally mechanical. It was resonant, with the polyphonic quality of the wind in empty places.
Emperor's Nightmares here againCold Ghosts a shit
>>39500112I see what you did there. Still, there must be yetis of note. Not all yetis just scream at the enemies cause they're scared, and not all piss on a Marine cause they don't know better. What I'm saying is that there must be some Yeti heroes, and it would help in making the Ice Wraiths unique.
>>39500199Dammit. Fucking Emperor's Nightmares faggots.
>>39500250The yetis are semi-intelligent, you know.
>>39500266>>39500199Both got dubs, seemingly a gift from the Emperor...But to whom do the truer dubs belong?
>>39500291Oh. Then there must be Yeti heroes. My case still stands. Ever see an intelligent Yeti do something heroic? No? Make it happen.
>>395003177th company, man.
>>39500332What about them? Don't tell they already made one and you didn't tell me.
>>39500375We have details on every company. Check the page. 7th are the most yeti focused.
>>39500390Wow. So they all have awesome roid rage yeti's. Fuck. It seems I was a stain to this thread. Can Yeti's be dropped from drop-pods with their handlers?
>>39500423They are. Actually our 2nd company is currently wiped out and our 7th has about 24 marines including the captain. So they use lots of yetis.
>>39500460Cool. What do the Marines think of their mount? I imagine some boasting about what their Yeti's have done, as well as giving them names.
>>39500182"Did you not think that we appreciated such things? The Tindalan creed teaches us that there is elegance in such things and that this is a cosmic design principle of the Omnissiah. Elegance is in all things. In the world below us, in the fine design of the Astartes, and in war."The melodic tritone of the adept's voice struck Wagaash. That and the way those glowing diodes had peered from beneath the cowl, trimmed with pale brass. Wagaash had gotten the sense of laughter.The plan 5-Imix Cipactli proposed was audacious. With a force of barely two squads of marines and a Tindalan Maniple, they would wrest the Manufactorae on Veles from the heretics that had so recently claimed them.The initial phases went exactly as planned, with the strike cruiser slipping into orbit and unleashing its payload of cryothermal weaponry.Meh, now I'm falling asleep here, but basic gist is that they fake out the Night Wolves by marooning themselves and waging a guerilla war. Along the way, Cipactli and Wagaash come into conflict about what to do with the slaves they start liberating.Turns out the Tindalans love the thrill of the hunt and the elegance of combat.Or something. I dunno. It's late. Let me know what you think.
>>39500555Actually they aren't just mounts. While the 7th company may field additional yetis, the usual ratio is 1/1 due to every marine having to go out and capture a yeti, then raise it as a part of initiation. They are lifelong companions.
>>39500632We also covered what happens to one when the other dies in a previous thread.
>>39500632Wow. So they have a bond with them? Cool. I'm staring to really like these guys. They might have some purity seals on the yeti's detailing their deeds.>>39500658Dishonor, and all that. I know.
>>39500990Well, not necessarily dishonor. It depends on the circumstances. Lemme go pull it up from past threads.
>>39500990>>39501469Found it.>I shall do my best to answer these interesting question. Whenever a Marine's Yeti is killed, the following question is asked: "Is the Marine responsible for the death of his mount?" If the answer is yes, the Marine is dishonored, and must forgo usage of a yeti mount until he redeems himself in battle and atones for his disgrace. If no, then the marine either captures and trains a new yeti from scratch, or is given the yeti of a fallen battle brother to take as his own. Yetis are not merely mounts or owned things, they are companions, and as such the Yetis of fallen Marines are kept in a single large enclosure in the fortress monastery. Any Marine who has lost their Yeti companion must enter this chamber, to be tested. If a yeti reacts positively to this marine, then he and that Yeti are paired up once more. If none do so, he shall raise a new mount. Any yetis belonging to those that have succumbed to the Red thirst are retained by those marines. The Wendigos ride their mounts into battle, having marked them with red dyes to signify their status. Neither the Wendigo nor their mount has a very high chance of survival on the field of battle, with a yeti rarely surviving a Wendigo's first deployment. For this reason, most Wendigos are deployed without a mount, and far in front of the main force as a preliminary strike.That was the post about it.
>>39501469DISHONOR ON YOU.DISHONOR ON YOUR CHAPTER.DISHONOR ON YOUR YETI.
>>39501557OH SHIT, VETERAN MUSHU. Please stop waving your arms around, sir.
>>39488210Now where did IG Fag go, I wonder?
>>39501501Oh. It is awesome how Marines treat their Yeti's as personal companions. Maybe some are hero's after all.
>>39501590Yep. Every augmentation is basically their equivalent of a battle scar and a badge of honor, because they only replace damaged parts of the Yeti.
>>39501607Cool. I can see Marines from different companies sitting around a campfire, telling stories about their prized Yeti. 7th Company probably has the most ded'ard and killiest of the Yeti. So different Company's have different kinds of Yeti's. 8th Company has the stealthy Yeti's, 1st Company has the most diverse of Yeti's, and 2nd has cremated Yeti's.
>>395017396th Company Yetis would be the scariest Yetis.
>>39501956Weren't they the stealth guys who also love psycho-warfare?
>>395019759 is Stealth. 6 is intimidation, surprise attacks and all that.
>>39501987Oh yeah. 10th gets the new stupid Yetis.
>>39502359The scouts will still be training their yetis. As stated, each marine captures and raises their yetis, as well as monitors the implantation process that raises their beast's intelligence.
>>39502469Its just a joke. Still, the age of a Marine could be represented by their Yeti. Older Marines have Yeti's more machine than flesh, or have a darker shade of hide and huge antlers. They should also mirror the doctrine of each Companies. Yeti's of the 9th would respond better to signals to lie down and be hidden, being better at stealth. Or something, you get the point.
>>39502503Yeah, pretty much. Each Yeti is individualized to the Marine and Company.
>>39502514Sure. Is my idea okay, or no-no? 7th Company Yeti's are more aggresive than their brethren and have larger fangs.
>>395025347th Company would probably be the most physically promising specimens and have the best training, considering the company.
>>39495106Greetings, took the liberty of sacrificing 100 minutes of my lifespan to improve upon the Yeti's look. Meet : "Jack" the Yeti
>>39502624Holy fuck. That is awesome.
>>39502624Cool. Might I add some suggestions?>Make him more quadrupedal. Marines ride on this thing, you know.>Its back needs a saddle affixed to its metal frame.>Large antlers.
>>39502695The yetis can switch between quadrupedal and bipedal, allowing them to be more effective in combat.
>>39502624Also. YETIS WITH GODDAMN PAULDRONS, BY THE EMPEROR THIS IS AMAZING.
>>39502709Cool. The head and antler needs to be larger though.
>>39502740Well, the head just needs to be a bit longer, and the antlers larger, yes.
>>39502751And remove the loincloth. Its an animal, it doesn't know privacy.
>>39502782I think the Loincloth is more a chapter colors thing. Like some space marine armor.
>>39502782marines can train their yeti to "dress up" ya know. kinda like teaching a pet to do a neat trick. Even if the Yetis don't know the concept of privacy, they be conditioned so that they get a reward (Fuzzy 'nid Nuggets anyone?) for doing so.
>>39502877Okay, not a bad explanation. So now what? Ice Wraiths are fluffed fairly full, and some are okay. We should start with the Terindom Regiment. They already have some fluff.
>>39502993Anyone care to recap the regiment?
>>39503009They're hard-ass convicts in a prison planet full of thick bush and giant dinosaurs. They specialize in mechanized and trench warfare, even though that doesn't make sense. The 1st Regiment , are special cause they're very good at inserting enemy lines from the air and holding it waiting for their bros. They remind me of the 1st Regiment in the Vietnam War even though the writefag said they're based on the Brits in WW2
>>39503072I think we can work with this. Somehow.
>>39502624FUCK YES MY RITUAL WORKEDVIRGIN BLOOD IS NOT WASTED
>>39503243You performed the Drawfag Summoning?
>>39503278someone had toWe need to summon IG fag now
>>39503298What blood do we use for that?
>>39503303Demonette blood mixed 1:1 with whisky.
>>39503298Why? What did he do anyway?
>>39503333Our Force Organization Chart
>>39503314Okay, you bring the whisky, I'll bring the Demonette blood.
>>39503344Oh. In-game, or fluff? It would really be nice if we had Codex for the Ice Wraiths.
>>39503348good luck. Boys, get your sanctified guns ready to give him EMPRAH'S peace if he comes back corrupted.
>>39503367It's a literal chart. We have it back further in this very thread. We'll consider a fan codex when we have the Ice Wraiths good and fluffed.
>>39503368Bitch please. I'm a member of the 9th Company. They won't even know I was there.
>>39503414And what makes you sure?
>>39503707Because I'm already back with this syringe filled with Demonette blood.
>>39503737That doesn't answer the question. What makes you sure that no one will know what you're doing?
>>39503764Because I'm 9th Company Ice Wraiths, masters of stealth. Also the Demonettes were distracted with the cryothermal weapons that detonated in the upper atmosphere of the planet they were attacking.
>>39502624You're beautiful *sniff* THATS NOT A TEAR I JUST HAVE SOMETHING IN MY EYE
>>39503963Weep openly brother. We have art.
>>39502624THIS TINGLES MY BINGLE.
>>39504760AS IT SHOULD. Jack "The Ripper" is a 1st company Yeti.
>>39500182>>39500625I really like this so far anon. I didn't see it until just now (posted while I was asleep) but i like where this is going.I would be very interested in including this on the writefag page for the Wraiths or, if the story is long enough giving it it's own linked page. Please continue
>>39505402crap forgot my trip. This is Pagefag
Bumping with fluff i just wrote for the Mi-go invasion of Nixarteria>The Mi-go InvasionRecently Nixarteria has suffered at the claws and/or tentacles of Hive Fleet Mi-go, a splinter fleet of Hive Fleet Kraken that found it's way in-system. Upon landing on the world initially many of the vanguard organisms were immediately killed by the inhospitable conditions and the hive-fleet had to quickly adapt the to climate of the world. The result was tyranid organisms covered in a thick layer of fur to keep them warm in the arctic temperatures.While the Ice Wraiths are no strangers to fighting the alien menace of the Tyranids, they had never been engaged in a conflict with them on this scale, with the entirety of the splinter fleet disgorging its' alien menace onto the surface of Nixarteria. With a scant three days between the fleet arriving in-system and reaching Nixarteria, the Wraiths hastily prepared for war, luckily having the entire chapter back on the planet for the ascension of Lord Marshal Riddick XXII. Additional fortifications were hastily constructed by the 2nd company and manned by the 2nd, 3rd, and 7th companies, with support from the 1st and 8th companies who remained in the Ice Wraiths Frozen monastery to defend it. The rest of the companies, scattered throughout Nixarteria, ambushing Tyranid groups and overrunning landing and staging areas. The 4th and the 9th in particular racked up a particularly spectacular kill-count after jointly springing a massive trap on the third wave of tyranid reinforcements, slaughtering them all before retreating back from the blood-soaked snow under the cover of a massive ice-storm.
>>39506282>cont. 2/3The height of the invasion came during the tyranid's fifth wave of reinforcements and included massive numbers of Carnifex and Warrior bioforms as well as a few bio-titans. The 2nd company, being the defensive and siege specialists, had their fortified positions directly in the center of the line of defense and came under the heaviest attack. Within half an hour of the renewed assault on the Wraith's positions the 2nd had been completely cut off from the rest of the units holding the line. Captain Grigari of the 7th twice attempted a breakthrough charge to reach his embattled brothers and only succeeded on the third try after massive casualties and the 6th company showing up out of nowhere to hold the 7th's positions. However the breakthrough came mere minutes too late as when the 7th finally broke through, Grigari and his men found nothing but the bodies of their slain brothers scattered throughout massive piles of dead tyranid organisms. The 7th themselves then nearly suffered the same fate, dying on the red-dyed ice but for the 4th, 5th, and 9th showing up unexpectedly at the last minute with fresh ammunition and warriors and manning the positions in a final stand alongside their brothers.
>>39506299>cont. 3/3Fortunately for the Wraiths, this renewed response in force spelled the end for the splinter fleet with the massive casualties incurred due to the unified defense and the high cost in bio-matter of maintaining the fur coats necessary for the tyranids survival on the surface, combined with the lack of available bio-matter resources on Nixarteria ultimately spelling out the demise of Mi-go's forces. This in turn forcied the Hive-ships to retreat from orbit around the frozen planet and allowed the Ice Wraith's fleet the upper hand over the fleeing tyranid ships. Nixarteria had been defended, though at a heavy price. Nearly half the chapter had been killed in the invasion and the stubborn, gruff determination of Captain Ylntez and his mighty 2nd is sorely missed as the chapter rebuilds following the conflict.However, despite the destruction of the majority of Mi-go's forces there still lurk among the ice-caverns and glaciers of Nixarteria, remnants of the swarm, perfectly adapted to their environment in the way only tyranids can be, just waiting for another fleet to arrive and take up the cause once more.
>>39506282>>39506299>>39506313I like it but i would add some chaos dickery to this
>>39506349What chaos would you have added? It's a tyranid invasion on the Ice Wraith's homeworld. The way we have the two warbands fluffed out they're too smart to involve themselves in a tyranid invasion and risk everything. I'm not saying it's a bad idea i'm just curious?
>>39506394Tyranid evolve faster when they are eating natural habitants of the planets right? So what if Wayward Sons fed nids with some yetis?
>>39483171>>39483195>>39483197I'm back! And I bring you chart of the Ice Wraith's Chapter Force Organization with the STC program "Photoshop" with all the current fluff and crunch up to date as of this thread. Also, I've looked at the 14dchan page and I just realized how freaking dark that background image was when I drew "Jack". When I get free time later on, I'll go make Jack look prettier and give him bigger antlers. <3
>>39506733You are the hero we need
>>39506733It's beautiful. The company dispositions aren't quite right tho. We're not exactly codex-adherent. We totally lack official devastator squads (instead we have additional tactical squads) and the 7th and 8th companies should be switchedAlso the Master of Sanctity is Vladimir
>>39506843>>39506733>7th and 8th switchedAs in the 7th is our assault company and the 8th is a tactical company the names are good
>>39506843>>39506855>>39506593Oh the horror! Hide your yetis, Hide your Scouts, And Hide Ivan from this Heresy, because they nomming ery 'body body out there!>>39506843In which category on chart should I pootis Master of Scantity Putin? You "Veteran" yes? Chibs is not "Veteran". Chibs is simple lurker and drawfag. Chibs simply took information from 1d4chan page entry and put it on chart. I cannot help it when errors pop up like sudden Yeti attack. But I cannot fix error now. Chibs has math test in real life coming soon and has many things to do for the day. I will fix later.
>>39506951At ease comrade. I am not of anger. I am grateful for effort and simply pointing out what could be improved upon. Good luck on math test Chibs, I also am prepare for final exam coming up.Also awesome job on the yeti earlier in the thread. It's up on the page as the official aesthetic
>>39506733We don't have Devastators, think, maybe?
>>39508101Are we keeping the Shagohod Transports?
>>39508143I don't think so. We have the drill-pods fleshed out already and we haven't actually made any fluff for the shagohods. Plus we have a lot of fluff and the yetis, in addition to being mildly codex-deviant
>>39508143>>39508198also the 9th company is already an MGS reference with it being the sneakiest and the captain's name "Shalashaska" is a nickname for Revolver Ocelot
>>39508528I mean, if we want to we could talk about it right now I guess? Idk? where's pagefag? Wasn't the 9th company his fluff?
>>39508569I just thought Archimedes Screws would be better than treads for moving on ice which is why I suggested it, we can replace the back end with a Rhino-type Chassis outfitted with Land Speeder hover tech.
>>39508686We don't have that many tanks though... Like we say in the 5th company fluff that we have a very small motor pool compared to most chapters... OH OH that could be the reason!!! The limited number of tanks we have is because we have to re-fit them with the screws because treads don't work on the ice!!!!
MY POWERS NEED REFUELING.CATCH YOU IN 10~ HOURS OR SO.
Bump for yetis and awesomeness
guys before i begin let me explain. I have been informed 2/3rds of my work ive done this semester has been reported as "not turned in". Needless to say I am one mad IG Fag. I see another Namefag took over on the chart. I'll get back to you all ASAP. Real life has taken a serious fucking turn this semester. Holy shit
Hit enter too soon, I also wanted to say keep up the good hard work. I'll be back as soon as this mess clears up. IG Fag out!!!
>>39511679>>39511697Jesus Good luck on that one mate.
Bump again? Are we letting this one die or do people have anything to discuss about the project right now?
>>39513158No. It's just it doesn't seem like this thread is very popular.
>>39513370Well I'll give it one more bump with this then and let it die if it falls again
>>39514185Tsk tsk. Activity will surge back up. The thread must be kept alive for the namefags, understand? Keep this shit bumped.
>>39514304If you insist
Bumping this thread 'cause it can't die for now. About the Terindom's, what kind of heroic deed did they do? I think that there would be one mechanized regiment that held out along with the Sky Sharks in a heavily besieged planet.
>>39516695Well then fluff up a regiment for it. There's no specific deeds for the sky sharks yet so that could very well be one of the honours on their "extensive record". Give a name, number, commanding officer, and maybe some details or a small backstory and we can include it with the notable regiments. Or do some writefagginf and I'm sure we can get pagefag to include it somewhere when he returns
>>39500625>>39505402Going to rework it so that we begin in the howling blizzards on the surface of Veles, Wagaash frantically ducking the inhumanly fast blows of the magos, I think.Then back to opening, then the woosh of a Tindalan power sabre and a machine chuckle brings him back to the present. Wagaash slipped beneath the blow and lashed out with a leg, sweeping Cipactli off his feet. Or so he thought, but the magi barely stumbled before righting himself? herself? (one couldn't tell anymore) on servo arms and mechadendrites and sliding back into a defensive posture, daring Wagaash to come.It had all started so well, or as well as any plan that involves crashing a derelict freighter loaded with apex cryopredators and cryothermal weaponry into a planet can. The month in warp had been spent examining the topography minutely.Veles was a small world, a ball of rock barely worthy of note except for its extensive mineral deposits and fortuitous placement near a stable warp route and a gas giant. The requisites of industry were at hand and transportation to Tindalos or Nixarteria was a simple matter.Ordinarily, reclaiming a world like this would have been top priority and at least a company assigned to the matter, but with the threat of Mi-Go as it was, Wagaash and his men were spared only because of Veles' importance to the war effort. Until Mi-Go was turned back, other worlds claimed by the Night Wolves, like Salwe and Yashtul would have to wait.They'd also retrofitted the creaking hanger of Makanyanikot to launch the Mechanicum lander during reentry, the din of the beasts echoing from the hold the whole while.The Skitarii troopers, Thallakes, and automata had spoken little, the Skitarii spending their time drilling or in prayer.
>>39518563The Automata and Thallakes stayed in their niches, understandable in the case of the Automata, but the Thallakes were an order stranger than anything Wagaash had seen before. Servitors were a common sight in the Imperium, but the minds of the Thallax were not shattered like a Servitor's, nor did they have the human behavior of the Skitarii. Instead they waited, blank-faced helms unmoving. And yet they wore trophy skulls of xenos predators. Then again, so did the Automata-- the Magi of Tindalos seemed to treat their Cybernetica almost as beloved hounds.The magi, led by 5-Imix Cipactli's example had been every bit as open as their minions silent, sparring with the marines. Wagaash grimmaced now, at the thought of it. This duel was nothing like their sparring matches. The base outline was the same, but Wagaash could see now that Cipactli had always kept use of the servo-harness to a minimum. Some sort of concept of fairness, Wagaash supposed.Here, Cipactli stood, robes flowing with the wind driven snow, a sabre in each of his four hands, welding ends of mechadendrites and laser cutters sparking.Wagaash grimaced. As much as the duel thrilled him, this was a waste of time and energy, a sign of just how far things had gone astray.They'd transited from the warp less than a day from Veles in a shatter of machine parts and bleeding fuel, broadcasting a garbled distress signal. The Makanyanikot appeared to be nothing more than a ghost ship, drifting with the strange and foul moods of the immaterium. The Night Wolves, pillagers that they were, didn't bother to intercept it and the Makanyanikot had been allowed to fall into Veles' gravity well.As the heat built and the failing hull shuddered with reentry, the mechanicum drop ship had been launched, even as the ship began to break up, leaking cryothermals into the atmosphere.
>>39518563The chaff of metallic dust had shielded their ship from any sensors that might have stopped to examine the falling bulk transport and they'd made a hard planetfall.Sections of the Makanyanikot fell across the rocky plains in burning ruin, hiding the landing pods with their meteoric brilliance. These landing pods were loaded with the cryopredators, but didn't open upon impact. Instead they waited for what would come.Minutes after the cargo hauler impacted, the sky darkened. The temperature plummeted. Dawn never came and the sky curdled, snow and hail falling in thick sheets.What precisely the Night Wolves made of this mattered little. While there were enough of them to prevent capture by anything less than anything less than a Marine Company, there weren't enough of them to effectively patrol Veles' industrial heart. This fell to their bonded cultists and serfs and, as the temperature fell, so too did they.Others, bundled in environmental gear, never returned. Their bones, cracked by predator's jaws, would be found by the next patrol, if at all. Bit by bit, the patrols ceased.Wagaash and Cipactli had watched all this with pleasure as they sabotaged the machinery and disabled those Night Wolves' vehicles that remained operational in the cold.Capturing a subject for interrogation had likewise been easy, soldiers and even Traitor Astartes were going missing each day and one more would not be missed. But this is where things had gone awry.The Astarte was pale and spoke with a crude Low-Gothic accent, as if trying to deny his Imperial past. He spat defiance at his captors. Wagaash had to commend him. He'd maintained his composure, even when Wagaash had allowed the dim light of the cell to fall upon his Librarian's hood. The Night Wolf stared at him with hard, empty eyes."Witch. Afraid to get your hands dirty with the blood of a real warrior?"
>>39519191For a moment, Wagaash considered punching him across the smug face, or telling him that he didn't deign to draw the blood of one so lowly. What honor was there to be gained from one so pathetic, but Wagaash smiled and closed his eyes calmly. The traitor would be in pain soon enough. Wagaash reached out with his mind, prying into the Night Wolf's dense skull.And there, he supposed, had been the source of the problem. Wagaash learned that slaves had taken the opportunity afforded by the onset of the arctic night to rebel. They'd slaughtered their human guards and declared an intent to liberate the world. The Night Wolves were assembling to crush them and make an example of them.Wagaash, and indeed all the Wraiths, had wanted to go join the fray. These slaves had become true warriors and drew the blood of their foes with nothing more than mining implements. If the Night Wolves slew them, then who would chant their names and their glories?How could one warrior abandon a brother who knew the blood-joy?Cipactli argued that these humans did not share in the blood drinking rituals of the Wraiths and were not battle brothers. He argued that going to their aid would tip their hand. With such an ill-timed attack, the task force would reveal themselves and even if they saved the rebels, they'd hardly be able to hold the mine against Night Wolf reprisals. They'd be outnumbered and killed.And so it had been an issue of honor and the duel begun.
>>39518563>>39518882>>39519191I see you've added more. Excellent. I have to sleep now but putting this on the writefagging page is first on my list tomorrow. I look forward to adding/reading the rest of it.Also I came up with and added a new notable regiment to the terindom page. The last one was pretty noblebright so I cranked the grimderp up to standard 40k levels for this new one. Points to the anon who finds the hidden reference first (man I like doing that far too much). I go to rest now
>>39519336Wagaash feinted right and darted left, his blade held low. He cut for the mechadendrites Cipactli stood on, but Cipactli blocked with a sound of plasteel on plasteel and a hiss of powerfields. Wagaash ducked the servo arm that swung out at him, stepping in to Cipactli's guard, and slamming his fist into the Magos' carapace, knocking Cipactli back, leaving furrows in the snow. The Magos leapt at him, but Wagaash intercepted him in midair, seizing his metallic limbs and throwing him as the shadow of an idea scratched at the back of his mind.Cipactli regained his balance in moments, a fluid blur of blue-green robes and spinning power-blades and came at Wagaash, each blow a fluid motion, so unlike the stereotype of the Machine God's warriors.Cipactli had explained it to him one day, while sparring."Combat is a space where only the essential is permitted. That which is wasteful and rash is stripped away. In this way, it is elegance. It is where the theory of angles and forces meets the practical realities of material strength and the chance of the moment. In this way, it is a microcosm.It is a reply and an elaboration on every battle that we have fought before, but each blow is only itself, a single moment in whihc we are immersed and dare not stray from. In this way it seeks perfection.In battle, we find ourselves pushed to seek the Omnissiah within, and we innovate according to the divine path.I believe your own Riddick espoused such notions."And that was it. Wagaash slid out of the line of Cipactli's advance, took an arm in a lock, and with a deep breath, raised his other hand and blasted Cipactli with a telekinetic blow.
>>39519598"We're wasting time!""If wasting time is the only way to keep you from bringing about the failure of our mission with misplaced notions of honor, then so be it!""No, no. You're right. To go and fight the Nigh Wolves head at the mine on would be foolish. But I have a better idea, one that advances the mission and honors those who know the joy of battle."And, as I am getting tired, I am going to leave it on this cliffhanger for the night.What is Wagaash's brilliant plan? Find out next time. Same bat time, same bat channel.And let me know what you all think. I feel like places are rushed. I suppose all of this is an outline/draft for later embelishment and revision.

>>39517153137th Regiment "Stalwart Tyrants"Knowm for the insignia, the famous Tiberius Rex of their planet, they were renown for the Siege of Golgori XVI. The Mi-Go had struck their supply lines, stranding them for months in the harsh and unforgiving winter. Day and night the Tyranids attacked the fortress, only to be repelled by repeated heroic efforts by the Tyrants. However, as time went on, their numbers were chipped away by repeated pushes, only numbering a hundred at the end of it all. Luckily, a squadron of the Sky Sharks hailed the fortress, asking for permission to land. A large group of Tyranids were spotted a few kilometers from here, apparently coming in their direction. Through the night they scrambled, fortifying the fortress and putting their men in the most battle-ready position. At dawn, we had visual contact with the Tyranids. Most of the force had died out, succumbing to their wounds or otherwise taken by the Tyranids to be recycled as biomass, but they held. At 1300 contact was re-established and the surviving men were combined with some of the under-strength regiments.Their sacrifice was crucial, letting the Terindom keep their footholds on the Golgo system and drive out the Mi-go fleet.
