>>45787674It's gonna be nids isn't it?
>>45787717Ye didn't roll, silly Anon!
>>45787649>marinesIs there a roll for any chapterI've decided to do some writefaggotry for this
>>45787624Do they know this, since the navy likes them can they possibly be self sufficient and not realize that home is gone.Fighting bravely to make their families proud, never knowing that they have long ago died.Recruiting from random worlds and indoctrinating conscripts from the warzones they ply.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>45787674So we're basically fanatical hedgeknights
>>45787765We're enemies with Chaos Space Marines. Just what sort of awesomeness have we rolled?>>45787744There's no list, it just says choose one, but Writefaggotry would be much appreciated!
Alright, to recap:>Militia>Priests>Regular Recruitment>Home World Lost>It was a Jungle>Light Infantry>Close Combat>Fanatical>Modified Weaponry>For the Homeworld!>Friends with a Space Marine Chapter. >Enemies with a Chaos Space Marine Chapter. This is awesome, and we need to begin fluffing them out now!
>>45787875Enemies of the Bearers of the word maybe?
>>45787875Fanatical militia from a jungle world is grounds for an Aztec theme. We can have the Blood Jaguars as our Space Marine bros
>>45787875Jungle priests could lead to some kind of south-american Catholic theme, thought i'm not sure exactly how that would manifest.
>>45787929This sounds pretty cool. Anyone else think so?
>>45787950The Contras? They were Neo-Christian Hitsquads.
>>45788019Hmmm, would they be backwardish in their rites and rituals to the emprah.(almost like savages with sacrifices and such)or would they be all into astronomy determining their fates and timekeeping as a holy rite.
>>45788020Conquistadors sounds amazing, actually.
>>45788063I don't think that they should be backwardish, maybe somewhat behind the times, as they've lost their homeworld, and now strive to show it's strength as their Regiment's creed in order to show that they are not weak?
>>45788077It might be interesting if we play up that the regiment is conquering for a home world that doesn't exist anymore. Like, they want to keep their empire alive in stories of their deeds.
>>45787875>Poor Brothers of Saint Domingo the Ferocious>After our homeworld was horribly scorched, and sacked by the treacherous heretics, our evacuated militia was picked up by the Templar battle barge sent to combat the defiled>Too large to be integrated with the chapter serfs, and too small to be worthy of our own transport, we joined their worthy crusade to redeem ourselves in the eyes of our Lord, the Emperor, to earn our new homeworld>Saint Domingo's name may not have deterred the Emperor's enemies when they came to our homes, but they will learn to fear it when we come to theirs
>>45788077Yes and the large numbers of priest with them would whip them into 'fanatical' conquest of worlds.Then they would convert the indig's to their culture and the imperial church then conscript from those converts.This keeps their numbers up with auxiliaries like the actual conquistadors did.
>>45788142I like this idea a lot. Anyone else?
>>45788163>Saint domingo I like it>Poor brothersI am iffy on that, IK they lost their home world but poor shouldn't be the word for them trying to keep up their empires legacy.
>>45788206If we're taking this as a Spanish bit then maybe we can play around with having one of those fuckhuge long names
>>45788182Yep, what was the home worlds/ small empires name though?
In the thing I'm writing, I've interpreted the light infantry close combat schtick as being an adaptation of their former homeworld being basically a massive clog of jungle flora.As in, it's plant life as far as the eye can see downwards. The megaflora extends so far down nobody knows where it ends, and this contributed to the development of 3 dimensional skirmishing tactics. The only heavy equipment are sparse flying vehicles; the plant matter cannot take the weight of heavy equipment, and in the depths of the green sea even the most skilled pilots frequently do not last long in the ever shifting and growing jungles. Therefore most went out on long term expeditions and patrols. The infantry have mastered the technique of approaching from any direction they can climb or drop to, and predicting any movement. Therefore, even against an enemy vastly more numerous or better equipped, they can choose their battles, and when the time is right, attack the enemy with uncommon ferocity.
>>45788163>Friends with the Black Templars?I like this. >Saint Domingo?I like this. Such good work, Anon!
>>45788163I'm all for the regiment having some sort of saint as a mascot, maybe with some crazy injury representing their lost homeworld?
>Oh hey this looks cool>Spaniards instead of friar tucks or Jewish ninjasGod fucking damnit you retards ruin everything
>>45788247Depends, if it sounds awesome (flows right) it will work.If not then it will sound weird and confuse people.Domingo Agustin Pro Juarez
>>45788317You got any better ideas than conquistadors in space?
>>45788317To be fair, the Regular Ecclesiarchy has enough of the Friars and Ninjas running around. Besides, Jungle Priests.
>>45788317But Space Conquistadores are cool. Especially when allied with Space Crusaders.
>>45788266Don't forget we also get Modified Weaponry, not sure what direction that can take but seems useful. Everyone still down for the quiet priesthood? Known for caring well for any troops they are attached to often leaving their own camps in their off time to administer to those regiments posted around them. Sometimes they marshal themselves (if they don't already have marching orders) and lead burial rights for every one of the bodies coming off the battlefield. Truly an undertaking of no small matter when it comes to the Guard and a comfort to those soldiers knowing they won't go without final blessings to the Emperor.
>>45788282Half his face should be burnt, as well as his body.From the flamers of the heretics who burnt down the church he gathered his congregation in for their last stand on their dying world.
What should these guy's colors be? If we're going for Space Conquistadors, maybe Yellow and Red for Spain's flag?
>>45788385I like it, the conquistadors purge and conquer while the priest attend to the wounded as best they can and give burial rights so that no matter where they fall the soul shall find the emperors light.
>>45788254Maybe we could somehow base the name off of Aragon or Castile mispronounced in some way?
>>45788448If they're light infantry they really should wear some sort of camouflage or at least a blending color. Decoration should be reserved for hats and the like.As far as decoration goes I'd say a single solid color would look better, either the crimson or the gold yellow.
>>45788448The original flag of the Spanish empire is is actually a red X on white backgrounding.
>>45788499The Hounds of the God-Emperor? (After the Dominicans/Domini-Canis (Dogs of God))
>>45788369Conquistadors are not priests. >Buddhist punch monks, buddies with White Scars for maximum irony>SIHK BADASSES, Buddies with Sanguine Shields for maximum irony>Native American shamans, buddies with Blood Jaguars/Dark Angels>Druids with chainswords, buddies with Stormtroopers Wardens>Hedge Knights, Buddies with Dark Angels/Black Templars >Polynesian shamans, buddies with Spess Sharks>Franciscian Monks, Buddies with Lamentors >Death Cult, has the hook up with the Legion of the Damned>Guys adorned in gold lookin' like little Custodes, super into the Imperial Creed. Buddies with Fists, maybeLike seriously, there are hundreds of more interesting choices.
>>45788499I liked how the writer did that in Iron and Blood.Great idea.
>>45788539>Legion of the DamnedI'm sold.
>>45788539True about the priest part.The conquistadors conquered for the empire, the priest tagged along and solidified the empires holdings by converting the natives to Catholicism.
>>45788327The Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo the Ferocious, Shepherds of the Lost, Faithful of [REDACTED BY INQUISITORIAL ORDER(or insert plant name)], Torchbearers of the Emperor's Light Regiment #101 Reporting as ordered to the Battlefield
>>45788587>>45788539Sihk death cult?That, through punching chaos in the dick a lot attracts the Legion like moth to flame?
>>45788602See?We can capitalize on so many other religious groups that are >AMore interesting and>BreakfastMore true to what we rolled.
>>45788603>The Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo the Ferocious, Shepherds of the Lost,....Fucking gold of an official unit designation.I feel they need a nickname as well though.I'd hate to be the vox operator who has to announce that every emperor damned time he called for support.
>>45788618Maybe styled after the Thugee Death cult? Killing Heretics as sacrifices to the God-Emperor with the help of the avatars of His vengeance, the Legion of the Damned?
>>45788634Truer to what we rolled suggestions then?
>>45788733>Breakfast >>45788539>Stormtroopers Fuck this phone for ever and a mother fucking day >>45788716Swag.Wasn't Hindu CSM a thing the other day? They could be the enemies, maybe
I wonder, if the regiment replenishes itself from natives of the worlds it fights on, how long has the homeworld been destroyed? Could multiple generations have passed on and been replaced?
>>45788712>>45788528Divine dogs, or dogs of (homeworld name)?
>>45788793I would think so>Cortés was given support from a number of tributaries and rivals of the Aztecs, including the Totonacs, and the Tlaxcaltecas, Texcocans, and other city-states particularly bordering Lake Texcoco.They take in the natives and convert them.It should have been a whole age ago that the home world fell, now The Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo has to get with he local populations as they colonize and move on to the new war zone or frontier.
>>45788712No. The Vox operator MUST state the full name. Every time. The only humor allowed in the GrimDarkness of the 41st millenium.
>>45788883Divine Hounds sounds cooler, but Divine Dogs rolls off the tongue easily.I lean hounds but I'm indecisive atm.
Honestly I would like to keep them as pretty straight up Priest in the Space-Catholic Missionary sense of the word. Showing people that the God-Emperor's light is gentle and cleansing. Able to help them through the worst of times. Kind of like your good, calm neighborhood priest (inb4 fedorafags come out) who always knows just the thing to say. The Missionary side is where you come to realize that they're still the Guard, infiltrating the treeline and disappearing, cutting the throats or sniping their enemies always whispering prayers and asking that the Emperor take these souls and fix them, for all can be well and made human again in the Emperor's Light.All the xeno's and heretics are all simply lost souls who need the light, conveniently this gun shoots light as well
>>45788975Nonono, anon.Fucking conquistadors is apparently so much better
>>45788923I'd hate that shit with all my heart and soul, but I'm not the vox operator so fuck him!They must state the full name every fucking time or else they get the lash by the commisaro.Everyone else (and the grunts in hushed tones) can refer to them as the divine whatever s.
>>45788950When in doubt, take the cooler option. Also, I'm in agreement with the earlier anons, Conquistadors weren't priests. Of course, this is 40K, so simple things like that aren't important. We're Priestly Conquistadors!
>>45789002You are by far the faggiest OP I've ever seen.
>>45788923The longer the Regiment exists and the more battles it wins the more you see the Navy Transport vox operator drinking. Eventually he wont even be able to leave his post anymore, the moment he finishes his last transmission he has to call out another one.Not to mention the poor data clerk in the Administratum who is desperately trying to write out the order to stop adding on to their name but it has to be done in quintuplet and whenever he gets close to finishing they've added a new title so he has to rewrite all of it due to regulations.
>>45789066This shit right here.
>>45789051Good. I'm trying to reach my quota.>>45789066This gave me a good laugh.
>>45789066The whole>The Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo the Ferocious, Shepherds of the Lost, Faithful of [REDACTED BY INQUISITORIAL ORDER(or insert plant name)], Torchbearers of the Emperor's Light Regiment #101 is just supposed to be the unit short name, the full real designation is like three pages long.and the divine hounds is the unofficial nickname.
>>45789066I think the regiment should have an Official Regimental Master of the Vox, whose job is this shit.For practical battlefield purposes, the vox operators just use 'Regiment No. X' or simply 'The Bloody Throne-Damned Assassin Priests'.
>>45789066Sounds good to me. Especially if he eventually starts accidentally saying incorrect words as they become slowly more exhausted
>>45789123What, ruining good ideas then acting autistic?Carry on. A shame too, this could have been a cool idea
Now that we have the name downThe Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo the Ferocious, Shepherds of the Lost, Faithful of [REDACTED BY INQUISITORIAL ORDER(or insert plant name)], Torchbearers of the Emperor's Light,...... [Continues on for three pages]How did the small empire/ imperial sector governorship that the Divine hounds sought to conquer for suddenly get burnt to hell (all the while the hounds where out converting indig's in backwater planets).
>>45789199Thankfully this shit like most other stuff is made up, so just use your imagination and contribute.
>>45789159>PRIIVATE WHEN"S OUR SUPPORTING COMING>SOON SARGE *explosions*>WHO IS IT THIS TIME?>THE WANDERING BROTHERHOOD OF SAINT DOMINGO THE FEROCIOUS, SHEPHE-*sniper fire hit operator, next private picks up the vox*>SARGE, THE WANDERING BROTHERHOOD OF SAINT DOMINGO THE FEROCI-*sniper fire hits vox operator, private picks up the vox*>SERGEANT, THEY'RE THE WANDERING BROTHERHOO- *next private*>THEY'RE THE FUCKERS WITH THE REALLY LONG NAME
>>45789283Okay here you go anon.>>45788539Haha look at that, literally anything else.
>>45789300To be honest, you are right in that Conquistadors aren't priests and all that, but it seems like it's stuck. Plus the super long name jokes are hilarious.
>>45789208We could take the easy route and just say that whoever our enemy chaos marines are did it, but there has to be a more complicated and interesting way to do it.Maybe Domingo was never truly recognized as a saint by some very powerful religious authorities, and in order to end this perceived idolatry they did something drastic. Maybe trying to arrest him and unknowingly causing riots planetwide, and weakening defenses?
>>45789326And that sucks. I would punch out but it's like watching a trainwreck.It's sad because the Exterminators and the Sanguine Shields get to die but this dumb shit is living it up
>>45789336I like it, they were trying to put it down quietly but it just got out of hand and the whoopsed the entire planet. Maybe they blamed the CSM for their own fuckup?>>45789326I like the Spanish bent but I don't think the Conquistadors are the way to go, course I'm the guy pushing for the Space-Catholic Missionaries so I am biased but it seems to fit well. Plus we can keep the long names
>>45789372Noooo Anon help me fight for it, don't give up
>>45789336This seems pretty cool. And with the defences lowered, and riots spreading throughout the planet, Chaos saw this as an opportune time to destroy this planet of the Guardsmen With The Really Long Name That Was At Least Three Pages Long.Just as planned.>>45789372Brother, the Exterminators and the Sanguine Shields are some of my favorite stuff on here, and I hate that they got to die.
>>45789372The Sanguine Shields thread died?
>>45789412Wait, they didn't die. It's still going. Fortunate. Anon is a lier.
>>45789385I like the Spanish bent as well, and the long names.
SO how do we work this.Spanish empire and religious fanaticism is the base of the units influences but what do we go with?Conquistadors, missionaries, or something else.
>>45789412>>45789407>>45789395Why the fuck are you acting surprised? It's very simple.You don't post a thread dies. I would keep it alive but I'm not a faggot that's going to same fag until the wee hours of the morning. You like an idea? Fucking contribute. Help compile. Copy and paste into the wiki. But don't you fucking DARE act surprised when something dies if you don't contribute.The Exterminators are in a strata of their own, and with the introduction of the manipulation and assassination conspiracies with the Sanguine Shields they are infinitely more interesting.But meme regiments that are amounting to racial stereotype Space Wolves are apparently more important than something that has TTRPG modules in the works and Marines with cultural depth. >>45789432Dying, then.
uniform's similar to that of the Spanish conquistadors
>>45789385I'm just amused that we're apparently an entire regiment of missionary-conquistador-ninjas. It's like Gaunt's Ghosts, but way more flamboyant and hot-blooded.
>>45789527This post is a well constructed and thought out post that deserves a commendation. Anons! To the Sanguine Shields thread! Tonight we fluff the Macedonian Marines!Wait, the Hua Yuan exterminators have TTRPG modules in the works? This is what I get for not paying attention to their threads more often.
>>45789548Dress Uniforms certainly, the field stuff though, classic white collar look, just in military uniforms>>45789527Yeah, that's what I am trying to do man. I thought you liked the idea too though I am getting the subtle sense you don't
>>45789522I'm honestly more fond of the Franciscan Monks thing that >>45788539 suggested as an alternative.To put it plainly, conquistadores are not an aesthetic that I think fits a bunch of holy men that got kicked off their planet. That and Conquistador look is difficult to put in light infantry gear without looking fucking goofy. I'm trying and it's not working.
>>45789603Shit I missed the exterminators TTRPG shit to. >>45789647Monks, we go with monks then.What do they look like in your mind.
>>45789647I'll agree with this, we can still do ridiculously long Spanish names if we want, but Conquistadors should go, or at the very most be a small part of the Regiment.
>>45789690All the officers dress like conquistadors, while the lay-guardsmen dress like holy men?
>>45789690The Conqiuistador theme'ed elites can be like the Kasrkin then.
>>45789714Maybe not like Conquistadors but priestly vestments always get fancier the higher you go unless the priest in question likes to play up the humble angle
>>45789709Excuse me, larger picute
>>45789690It works. We can still keep the indigenous converts aspect, but I feel like a we should drop some of the "for glory and conquest" aspects and replace it with >>45788975Maybe keep some of the hotheaded conquistador elements from some converts or something
>>45789726I'm guessing their armor looks like this?
>>45789683>>45789603Yeah, StatAnon is supposedly working on an Only War module that displays all aspects of Hua Yuan warfare, from Mechanized Siege, to Penal units, to the Exterminators themselves.I'm working on a Dark Heresy module based in Hua Yuan and involves the Dead Jockey and 'Nid Dust.
So las-muskets: yay or nay?
>>45789756Well then have we settled on the almost sainthood that lead to riots that lead to civil war and complete destruction of the planet (Blamed on chaos by the mainstream preisthood back a terra so the Divine dogs would get raged aginst chaos who had nothing to do with the destruction.)
>>45789827Needs a bayonet and ornate wood, yes.
>>45789797Perfect base for the elite.What should the regulars look like, they have to be religious monk looking but also combat effective
>>45789842I would prefer it if the planet wasn't completely torn apart by riots and civil war alone, and there was some invasion by nids/ork/chaos/whatever, but the defenses were weakened enough because of the instability for it to actually work. That way we keep Domingo a burned martyr.
>>45789827Laslocks are already a thing, despite having surprisingly little art
>>45789912Look at the top of my post here, I suggested that Chaos took advantage if the instability and sent forces to destroy/conquer the planet. >>45789407
>>45789912So weakened world by civil war, chaos comes in and fucks up the system somehow destroys the whole world.So what was the world before chaos, just a normal jungle one with large cities dotting it.
>>45789752So this plus some flak armor and returning fire for the line infantry?
>>45789940There's already priests in 40k. Maybe there can be some inspiration from that, strap on some flak armor and camo-patterns.
Anyone else feel a little wierd that one Anons bitching changed everything?I'm not complaining, it's just...huh.
>>45790012It's less annoying this way, Anon.
>>45790012He was insufferable, but he had a point about conquistadors not being priests
>>45790012I know, I like the Conquistadors part, but felt he was right that we were messing it up a bit by making them priestly.
>>45789931Apparently las-locks are more ancient weapons, and are Mechanicus stuff.
>>45790069Hmmm, that mght put them out of the realm of possibility for our not mars cult inclined fanatics.
So we still have to decide on the actual name of the home planet, and whatever "modified weaponry" means.
>>45790069Only War has a different version implied to basically be a scrap lasgun
>>45790126Kashteel, a jungle world with a desert tundra at its poles (Cold up there but not icy as the climate wouldn't allow it)
>>45790166Has to be something Sounding similar to a real Spanish city.We discussed this earlier.
>>45790179It sounds very similar to Castile though
>>45790179How about Castauella? Pronounced 'ka-sta-oo-eh-ya'
>>45790179I think he was aiming for Casteel, course Mahderid is the first thing that popped in my head
>>45790193Whatever the name (Kashteela would sound like the Spanish version), lets get the description of the now burnt husk of a world down and build from there.Jungle, poles are arid deserts (deserts can be cold),What about the goverment that spawned these fanatics.Is it a monarchy that payed tithe to the imperium and was very religious because the Imperials kept them in power was it a theocracy by the priests, or something else?
>>45790294>>45788266You can make the actual story of the inhabitants a sort of arc, really. Chaos made a move on them because they were weak and unfaithful, so they lost everything and decided to repent, only too late to save their planet from an impromptu deny-the-enemy exterminatus.Also because a miles deep jungle is impossible to clear and better off burned to nothing
>>45790294Highly religious monarchy would probably be closest to the source material. However I don't think the monarchy should've been allied too closely with the imperium, since there was a schism over Domingo.
>>45788354>>45788378Why not both?
>>45790197Personally I like this the best. Castauellan Divine Hounds or Castauellan Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo the Ferocious has a ring to it in my ears.
>>45788385>Modified Weaponry,It has to involve swordguns, man. It just has to
>>45790440Permanent. Bayonets. Say it with me. Permanent. Bayonets.
>>45789372Dude, the exterminators got 12+ fucking threads. That shit is basically done, just need to consolidate
>>45790456They aren't rifles with blades on them.They're swords with lasguns attached to them.
>>45790495Yes. Fits with the Close Combat doctrine as well, which makes it even better.
>>45785537Rolled 5 (1d10)
>>45790511So what amount of flamethrowers does the regiment have? The Ecclesiarchy and other religious-types love setting things on fire.
>>45790440On a more practical side, on the light riflemen aspect, they're more suited to hit and fade attacks.Which I'm thinking means setting the lasgun's battery pack output to "beyond reasonable" and firing a single stupid strong shot out of what amounts to an emitter and a heavily reinforced barrel before running off, tossing their packs into the fire or plugging them into something, then going right back out.Hot Shot Lasgun Squared. One shot, maybe two, leave. Or, if there's a heavy advantage, charge.
>>45790533Coming from a former jungle world?A lot.
>>45790533Every weapon has a flamer attachment. Including the chainswords. Especially the chainswords.
>>45790367>>45790376The Imperial sanctioned monarchy was still weary of having someone not of their royal blood tell them what to do and how to run their planet after having been a fudal world for so long and then having imperial explorers introduce 'modern tech' to their lives along with the imperial creed.Over the millennia the imperial creed grows in the commoners to rival the monarchy in power.The priest however didn't have a figurehead until Domingo came along and performed divine acts in the emperors name.The king gets all uppity at the populace admiring this Domingo fellow instead of the royals.When the priesthood asks Terra for Domingo to be declared a saint the jealous king intercepts the message and arrests Domingo and his followers for treason.The commoners of faith rebel and try to free Domingo causing a civil war, the monarchist aginst the faithful of Saint Domingo.The war rages and the PDF is too occupied with he situation to notice chaos warships in the sub sector... what next or any changes needed?
I don't get it, why can't the just be space monks with a conquistador streak? It's goddamn 40k, no one gives a shit if real conquistadors weren't monks. That's the beauty of it, we get to make it however we want so long as it works and is cool!
>>45790595Fanatic is the only description we got, whatever we do afterward is fair game.
>>45790533>>45790559I would actually go the other direction. Jungle infiltrators route, las guns and blades, they don't want to burn down the cover around them. Maybe they were a priesthood that was converting a highly dispersed jungle world, the jungle itself is filled with dangerous creatures (or to make it less like Catachan roving bands of heretic patrols) that the priests had to avoid or ambush on their trips to the faithful settlements. That's where they picked up their skills
>>45790628>>45790614I think we should vote on it. Its the only way to be fair to the majority
>>45790541So not only are our monks fucking ninjas, but they're also trained to be Simo Hayhas?
>>45790663Agreed.Imperial creed zealous Conquistadors on a permanent crusade as penance for a portion of their planet going heretical. is my vote.
>>45790663I vote for stealth missionaries
>>45790663Well as the person who wrote it >>45788975 gets my vote
>>45790700>>45790663I'm with him. As long as they're melee heavy and wear metal armor with fancy names, we're goodWe can even keep the long name, I think that was a good idea
>>45790727They're specifically spec'd as light infantry though
>>45790739Doesn't need to be a full suit, anon. Just a Morion and a Chestplate, wit h the frilly collar
>>45790724Fuck it, Stealthy missionaries gets my vote to.Priestly robes become gillie suits and camo cloaks.
>>45790676Voting Stealth Missionaries because of this Anon. Actually, if we go by his unconfirmed kill count as well, then he's actually about 722 reasons not to mess with Finland.
>>45790789>>45790727>>45790823Why not both? The real guardsmen are made up of the conquistador-esque heavy infantry, while the stealthy missionaries are formed from converted natives?
>>45790663The turn towards straight up conquistadors is honestly fucking bizarre imoI'm not sure how you get that from "militia light infantry zealots". Conquistadors were professional and well equipped, and notably, are known for completely kicking the asses of whoever they ran into one way or another. To me it doesn't fit a society that got chased off its own planet due to heresy.It just doesn't fit the guidelines. Appearance is as important an aspect to a design as anything else. Do the Death Korps look like a bunch of hoity toity puffed up nobles who prefer political posturing to decisive action?I really think that going for Sisters of Battle 2.0 is veering way, way off course.
>>45790495My brethren of African descent
>>45790829I'm with this anon. Guardsmen forces are made up of hundreds of regiments, many specialized. There's literally 0 reason to not have both
>Heavy armor>Stealthy>Powerful energy weapons>Good melee skills
Light skirmish style missionaries it tis then.Do we like their background as being the remaining faithful rebels aginst the monarchy and Chaos fighting from the jungles, ambushing monarchist convoys as well as competing aginst roaming chaos insurgents.
>>45790866I like it, sort of a Spanish civil war feel to them. Plus I really like the picture in my head that forms
>>45790889why'd you delete this anon, I agreed with you
>>45790866But the monarchy are dead. The world they came from was completely destroyed by chaos.
>>45790932Three forces fighting each other and its in space Spain, shit you right anon!So we have the Grunts taking the monk style of robes /breeches with flack Armour over them and some robes being used as gilli suits.Officers and veterans (anyone of importance really) get fancy conquistador style PDF Armour of their home world (captured from said monarchist convoys during the rebellion)
>>45790965IK but thats the backstory of the original fanatics, they evolved from those rebels and when the extermination came the faithful rebels were deemed worthy enough to survive but guilty bu association and have to do penance for it by converting/conquering other planets.
>>45790947Vote turned out just as I posted it and I didn't want to rehash the arguement, some more typical Imperial priests in command would make a lot of sense though and they can carry the more Conquistador feel.
>>45791039I think I said about the same as you did>>45791007
>>45791078Looks like, nice to be on the same page with peeps, I really want to write up a specific prayer or benediction for these guys but it'll take a bit to get it all straight
>>45789208Compiled what we got so far.>The Castauellan Wandering Brotherhood of Saint Domingo the Ferocious, Shepherds of the Lost, Faithful of [REDACTED BY INQUISITORIAL ORDER(or insert plant name)], Torchbearers of the Emperor's Light,...... [Continues on for three pages]>Castauellan Divine Hounds for short.>Name is added on to after every major event and battle of the unit.>From dead world of Castauellan, a former jungle planet with desert poles and several castle style cities breaking from the thick jungle>Planet fell into civil war after ruling monarchy and faithful of Domingo clashed.>Chaos incursion adds a third faction to the fray of the two already weakened sides.>Chaos begins to take root.>Imperium finds out about chaos and orders exterminatus of Castauellan.>Faithful of Domingo "Divine hounds" are looked upon by the imperial church as useful and are evaced before exterminatus.>Must pay penance in the form of crusade for their homeworlds crimes and to clear their name.>Recruits and bolsters numbers by conquering and converting feral or feudal planets on the frontier to the imperial creed.Good so far?
>>45791244>>45791249Now we have to determine what chaos space marines attack Castauellan.Thus making them the ones we hate.And we have to determine the space marines who like them.Either way we can have it being the SM being religious and petitioning the inquisitor to save the Divine Hounds because they liked their devotion to the empra.
I'm going to bed guys, Keep it up and this can be the best IG unit yet.

>>45791350Damn, wanted sons of malice
>>45791368Fighting Slaanesh lovers fits with the whole 'rebel against the monarchy' part
>>45791350Totally down with the Emperor's Children, excess in the monarchy is always a complaint of the rebels. Who are our allies though?
>>45791527Black Templars, and presumably members of Ecclesiarchy. Perhaps a few Sisters of Battle.
>>45791543I'd be down with the Black Templars, don't see them often in these threads
Could this Reg. be friends with like, some inquisitorial agent ? like Torquemada ? not him tho, or maybe even him
>>45791904I'm sure the Ordos Heretical would love these guys, they would fit really well with a Dark Heresy game, or Only War obviously
>>45791007We could use franciscan habits for the common guardsmen, dominican habits for the Adeptus Ministrorum and conquistador armor for officers and commisars
Elegan/tg/entleman please keep these guys alive and come up with some cool writefaggotry for these guys because within the fortnight I will have written up the full 3 page title of the Devine Hounds and I will post it, I need them to live up to their title though. The question I leave to you is handwritten (I use cursive ) or typed (what font)?
>>45792528If your Cursive is good, then yes.If typed, then the pseudo-cursive font. Post both, we can use them.
>>45791527>>45791543I'm liking this as well. >>45792430Sounds about right. >>45792481I like the sound of this, anyone else agree?
>>45792528Cursive if only because
>>45795494>>45795510>>45795870Cursive it is then, and don't worry it's goodWhat kind of prayers might these guys use a lot?
>>45796646Considering they are supposed to be fanatics I would imagine some sort of prayers for forgiveness of both them (for their home worlds sins) and I feel like they would feel sorry for those humans who fell to chaos as well.(I feel like the last part of my idea isn't that great though as it doesn't fit in with their crazy fanaticism).
>>45797372I think it could still work, they feel like they have failed the Emperor but moreover they feel like EVERYTHING has failed the Emperor. He is the perfect guiding light of the universe trying to bring everything into line. All can blossom into perfection under his gaze.
>>45797602I'm used to the 'Lets kill everything because fuck them for not praising the emperor' so maybe these guys yelling "Beg for forgiveness!" as they ruthlessly bayonet some hapless chaos cultist is a good change!
>>45797602Forgot to clarify, they're not actually angry about this per say.They're genuinely upset about this, they weep to think about how humans have failed Him on Terra and they feel pity for those souls trapped in alien bodies (they believe that all souls have the potential to be human, the pinnacle of perfection) but they have to be killed in order to release those souls to either Purgatory or Reincarnation. Once through that the souls are purified and made human and then they have the chance to serve the Emperor.At least that's my thoughts on it, I am open to criticism and tweaks.
So now we have the Emps Children as our arch enemies?>We're at the point when the Castauellan monarchy is fighting the Divine hounds rebellion because the monarchy is tired of being pushed around by the Ecclesiarchy from off world, and reached the tipping point when Domingo was to be declared a living saint for his holy acts (that the King/Queen? viewed as a figurehead that could rival the royals power on the planet.)>Civil war continues with the fanatical Divine Hounds milita camping out in the jungle and the remaining Monarchists PDF hiding in their Spanish fortress styled cities.>War distracts everyone from the Emps children who sneak onto the planet and consort with the king.>King gets all comfy with chaos, bad shit ensues.>Inquisition finds out, declares Exterminatus.>(Black templars) petition the inq. to let the Divine hounds live.>They are evacuated from their jungle camps along with some deserter PDF.>boom goes the planet.>LOL you guys fought well but for your failure to keep your own home from chaos you have to go out and save as many worlds as you can and convert them to the imperial creed.Sound good?
>>45797818Sounds good to me.
>>45797703No filthy xenos, There can be no redemption for the alien.(The Ecclesiarchy has an almost zero tolerance for Xenos, so I doubt these fanatics would either.)But for humans and what was once was human, I would think they weep for them not achieving their seat next to the emperor."Lo even the primarchs fell, the perfection of humanity brought low by corruption of the soul, what chance do we the poor beggars of Saint Domingo have.And so we the Divine Hounds fight to save the untouched, to end the suffering of those who have fallen from the emperors grace, and to die for our sins."
Did we ever decide what their modified weaponry was?
>>45797938it's probably modified flamethrowersthey ARE priests from a jungle world, so I bet the Ecclisarchy would let them modify their existing flamers to be more holy. Gotta purge them Heretics with holy Promethium and all.
>>45797900I can roll with that. I cannot even imagine how pissed off the Eldar would get after talking to these guys for 5 minutes. >I weep for you>Filthy mon-keigh, what are you talking about>You cannot feel the Glorious Emperor's light>Your Carrion God holds no sway here>You don't even know you want his light, I cannot even imagine the pain you're in>I don't care about your Emperor>Truly a more base and wretched creature never existed, so much pride for not knowing the truthPerfect foil
>>45798044>>45797900FlamethrowerShotgunCombat bladeChainsword Eviscerator chainswordSomething from this list.
>>45798063I love it!>Poor child, lost from the true path of the emperor's guiding light.>Fuck off mon-keigh.>Do not worry my child for I was like you once, praising false idols on a feral world.>We're on a craft world and I'm like 1,000 years older than you dude, FUCK OFF!
>>45798077Remember these are supposed to be light infantry, so the lighter weapon the better to their 'Close Combat' tactics.
>>45798077Eviscerator chainsword might be too heavy then.
>>45798077>>45798159>>45798194I think we agreed it was swords and flamers attached to everything. Also, high power las-locks, designed to give only a few shots before you have to recharge the mag.
>>45798077I would vote for combat blade. Not that I am against having some flamers in the regiment but they're venerated relics carried by the more traditional commanders. I don't think that the natives to a jungle planet would like flamers as much as the colonists of the jungle planet
>>45798225Fine with me, sword guns and under mounted flamers for all.
>>45798289I feel ya, I'd imagine since the Divine Dogs were descended from lightly armed CQC spanish-esq rebels they would use melee weapons and light arms (Even combining them) rather than bigger bulky (fuel consuming) flamers.Also the religious fanatics with flamethrowers thing is overrated.
>>45797818>Detachment of Black Templars comes to check out the presence of Chaos Marines>Monarchy goes bonkers>Shit goes sideways>Templars stuck and rely on the rebellion for help>Exterminatus comes>Templars help save what left of the rebels
>>45798331Maybe instead of bulky flamethrowers, the regiment loves to blow up Chaos shit, especially with prometheum-filled explosives.
>>45798331But sir, we have to burn heretics.
>>45798341I like it, but does the Monarchy go all in for chaos?I like the the templars get stuck and get help from the rebels part, makes the Hounds sound competent to be able to assist space marines.
>>45798378Could that work?
>>45798331Well I've got one idea. They're focused on cleansing and redemption, they're not well supplied either at their onset or even now, and they're at least originally Jungle Fighters. I would vote for modified and highly ornate las-locks. The light they shoot is a blinding white and powerful (useful for sniping or concentrated fire) but have a very slow firing rate. This allows them to be careful in their shots, lining them up. It works well with their background as well because there tends to be 2 effective engagement distances in the jungle. Very close range since you only noticed the enemy now that you were on top of them and very long range since you had set up the firing lane a while ago in prep for an ambush.
>>45798392Heretic bonfires to cleanse their souls!
>>45798429But didn't another anon say that las-locks were Mechanicus relics?
>>45798417Explosives are ALWAYS a good idea.Especially when there's heresy.
>>45798403I think that, since Space Marines are legendary power armored demigods of war, the monarchy would lose it's shit and turn to the Emps' Children for help to get rid of them.
>>45798514Ah, so the regiment has holy hand grenades and blessed detpacks?Sounds pretty cool, they have plenty of priests about to bless all their ordinance and the Ecclisarchy probably approves of it.
>>45798429 I too also like the Las-locks idea with great big sword bits attached. >>45798378 >>45798331 In regards to this we do have >>45791904 these guys who could be routing out all monarchistic tendencies. And set up intra-regimental fighting when they try to burn people who think the Emperor is an Emperor and not a God
>>45798553And their even more religiously zealous than the Divine dogs are.So would the chaos marines have come first, then the templars came to fight them, then the monarchy turned to the CSM once they realized they had two religious fanatical forces on their planet who both followed the imperial creed?Or am I wrong?
>>45798484There's the las-locks that were Mechanicus relics, used by the Tech Thralls.And then there's the las-locks introduced in the RPG books, which are just second-hand, cheaper-than-bricks lasguns.
>>45798514So regiments tactics, is to lure enemy into ambush and then blow up them with IED (Shredder Mines, Spring Mines, Plasma Charges) And then burn what left ?
>>45798657Hmm, So do we go with Superpowerful but slow reload laser muskets or with sword/pistol things?They both sound awesome and would fit the background story well, but I cant decide.
>>45798655That's just about what I'm saying, yep.>>45798711Pistol/swords are the primary weapon, while the las-locks are used by snipers and designated marksmen.
>>45798711How advenced Home World was befor fall ?
>>45798749I was imagining 15th century spain, but with 'modern' imperial accouterments for the upper class (nobles and royals) and a capable PDF force. Feudal with future
>>45798749I imagine Spain-flavored Mad Max schizo-tech. Jury-rigged las weapons and motor vehicles being used by the rich, while the commoners have to get around by horses.
>>45798803Noice! Dude we got the same mindset.
This shit still a cultural stereotype mishmash or has it turned into something interesting?
What kind of vehicles does the regiment use? I can't help but imagine the conquistador infantry using chimeras to charge at their enemies.
>>45798749Feudal world just being introduced to high Imperial tech, the temptation for excess and splendor was too much for the Monarchy and they hoarded the advanced tech for their own uses. I would be down with all of the las weapons being the really ramshackle and cobbled together look, heavy hitting but slow across the board. Blessed det packs and holy hand grenades used in ambush and the combat blades are decorated by prayers for release to the light of the Emperor
>>45798787So we should have acces to "modern" lasguns/las pistols ccw for guards. And las-lock can by a relic wepon reserved for the best shrapshooters/snipers(nobles ?)
>>45798858It's getting ironed out and I like the direction it is taking at least, YMMV
So was there any Mechanicus presence on the planet to maintain all the advanced machinery?And how do they feel about all this ramshackle tech the regiment has to use?
>>45798910The way I see it in my head is these weapons have been used by the rebels since the beggining of the conflict, they're covered in prayers and messages from those that held the guns before them so the regiment puts some work into recovering them and passing them down to the new recruits. Helps preserve their history.As far as nobles in the ranks no more than a few that saw the direction the monarchy was taking and pushed against it. Dumpping their coffers into the rebel cause and fleeing to the Jungles to get away from the corruption.>>45798864Command vehicles certainly, I don't think that Conquistador infantry is the right phrase now, there aren't huge units of them just that they get more ornate and heavier armor the higher up the ranks they go. Same deal as the weapons being decorated and having the history passed through the armor would be cool as well. You're not just taking the position but the history of the deeds they've accomplished and you're to live up to or exceed them.
>>45798803That could be one of the reasons the Monarchy hated Domingo and had him killed.He preached that all were equal in the emperors eyes and that not only the rich nobles should have access to technology, the commoners should as well.King/Queen no like this and before he can be examined by an offworld imperial priest and declared a saint they have him burnt inside his own cathedral in the capitol along with his first band of followers, spawning a revolution.
>>45799243>>45798905>>45798787Where is the Mechanicus in all this tech conflict?I imagine there's a few Mechanicus outposts manned by the worst techrpiests, with them considering this to be the death knell of any opportunity for career advancement.When the civil war happened, the techpriests holed up inside their outposts in the jungles and deserts. Some get taken over by Chaos advocates, while others tentatively support the rebels by repairing their devices and teaching them how to Macguyver explosives.
>>45798997One or two lowly adepts in each major city took keep up maintenance on the nobles tech for a hefty price at the expense of the commoners taxes.Probably bailed as soon as the civil war broke out and either escaped off world or ran to the space marines/Divine Hounds when the king allied with chaos .Probably not bad, they have no high tech stuff.The las-locks are homemade and low tech compared to hot shot lasguns.
>>45792481Can we get the Burgondy flag as insigna?
>>45799332Yeah the AdMech would likely send only a token few priests (if that) to basically end their careers on this backwater planet.The tech priest realizing this are even more dissatisfied being talked down to by the royals and probably jumped ship entirely when they realized the royals had no interest in coming back into the imperial fold.I like the idea of them teaching the rebels about explosives.The holy hand grenades sounds more plausible then.
>>45799388Needs more skull.

>>45799510>Spanish regiment>SoccerSo does the regiment play soccer? Do they start a riot every time they lose?
>>45798927What's the Regiment right now? In a nutshell, 1000 characters or less
>>45799552Soccer is how they pass the time between battles, and the losers get lashed (but not BLAMED*) by the commisars.*If the punishment for loosing was blaming, they'd burn through recruits even faster than they already do.
>>45799582Can you give it in a non-ant size?

>>45799530Good as it should>>45799332>>45799350I like that for the AdMech, they look down on us for our shitty tech but we do respect it a lot (after all it is a physical extension of the Emperor's will) and that makes them alright with us overall>>45799243What did Saint Domingo do to even be halfway considered for sainthood?
>>45799552Maybe we create new regiment ?1st Emperor's Hools
>>45799617Single-handedly pulled a feudal world back from the brink of HERESY? Like, their beliefs had diverged pretty dangerously from the orthodox, and there were lots of people who gave no shits about religion on top of that.Within his lifetime, he inspired the masses to follow The Imperial Creed with every motion and breath they took, and also performed a handful of MIRACLES that had people taking notice?
>>45799599Hope you like pixels (not the movie though)
>>45799674And from the view of the Ecclesiarchy, they needed some kind of symbol to rally the masses in the sector towards following the Creed.
>>45796646Really long ones
>>45799617The original thought was that Domingo performed holy acts of the emperors will (cured diseases) and was wise.But now we're getting into the idea that he did that notable stuff and then when he started talking aginst the monarchy's hording ofmodern medicine and technology from the commoners that the king got butthurt but couldn't do anything to him because he was an imperial priest (it was better not to piss off the imperial church) .But then when terra sent a investigator (inquisitor?) to see if Domingo was a saint the king panicked and had Domingo burnt alive in the capitols cathedral.Thus sparking the civil war.
>>45799616So Spaniards? But productive?Personally I would have gone a different route, perhaps focused on one thing like a specific Spanish brother hood. I'm seeing Cuhrazy Mechanicus stuff and Mad Max influences. The best regiments have one or two ideas that they integrate. I'd drop the Mechanicus shit and have them be an assfurious doom cult that is a walking Exterminatus out if pure spite. Or something not as dumb as Spaniards. Fucking pigs...
>>45798905Holy hand grenades hit on a +3If a 5 is rolled, grenade thrower counts as having monster hunter
>>45799774>Cuhrazy Mechanicus stuff >Mad Max influences>Walking ExterminatusDude, the Mechanicus came about out of the necessity for maintaining technology and are only a minor note. The Mad Max part was just a reference for the kind of schizo-tech on this world.And we're a sneaky-sneaks regiment, not the Marines Malevolent. And if you want doom cult, just look at the Death Korps.
>>45799774Man conquistador were brutal. They did stuff that only badasses would have pulled off. They were in an unknown territories, with mainly hostile inhabitants and far, far from home. They indeed fought with tech advantage but against numerous enemies.I say that but never forget that they are also the most son of bitches of all. They pulled of stuff that should make you ashamed of being human. Basically Humanity Fuck Yeah, with less destruction and more give us all you have then all you will ever have.(It's a big period of time so there is bad and good, but there is a lot of horrible).
>>45799851Well we originally went that way but it was with a few hiccups, so we went with Franciscan monks who feel sorrow for all the poor souls and seek to free them from their sin by killing them.I'm imagining the Castauellan PDF were the Conquistador style guys.But only a small portion of the PDF joined the Divine Hounds when the Monarchy went heretical.So now the upper echelons of officers are mostly descend from the PDF who knew strategy and tactics (And also sport some of their supirior conquistador style Armour) while the lower echelons are more the fanatical powerbase of the unit and have less ornate things.(Except for their ancient venerated las-Locks)
>>45799851Fair point.But are they priests?>>45799839Sneaky? Shid, I definitely wouldn't have gone with fucking Spaniards.Injuns or something maybe
>>45800073Injuns has been done already.
>>45800073A- Conquistador were very (very very very) believer (spanish inquisition ruled until XVIII)

What do the infantry look like anyways, Would it be all monk robes and flak armor.or something else.
>>45800338I think we've got that one ironed out actually, it's just one guy who came in late and was behind. Majority of the line units are the Franciscan Monks, The command structure has the more Conquistador-esque leaders from the Guard and more traditional priests on the planet
>>45800621Thank god, you seem to be right by what the straw pole says.now back to Saint Domingo.He performed miracles we agree on that but what happend afterwards?Did the king kill him or did he survive and lead the rebellion and then die.
Anyone know how to Archive?
>>45800756>>45800770>>45800824I mean I have chrome so I just press print then save it as a pdf would that work?
>>45800686He survived and was an integral part of revealing the corruption present on the planet, escaping to lead the rebellion.I think this is a more reasonable way to attract the attention of the Ecclesiarchy and the Black Templars, tales of a rebellion on a planet falling to Chaos being lead by a priest who can perform miracles. The reports of the oncoming battle fleet spurred the push that cornered him in his main cathedral where he was burned to death. Now what was his final act of martyrdom? There should definitely be a big one for the end. Right on the edge of believe-ability so that the more fanatical parts of the Imperium believe the monks but the incredulous sides straight up don't listen to these back water priests and their supposed saint.
>>45800867I like it, draws the BT into the story and gives the rebellion a bad ass leader to reference.
>>45800756But you can use that, I just don't know how:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html

>>45801090Like this, so any other differences?>Drawfag can draw.
Thread is archived on suptg, don't forget to vote
his final act of martyrdom needs to be the thing that brought him back to the cathedral. Maybe when they came to see if he qualified for sainthood they brought some relics which ended up in the cathedral when the king momentarily played nice with the offworld relifgious investigators, and domingo had to get in there to try to rescue the offworlders and the relics?
>>45801223that's too much medieval no?
they could still have whatever relics- a standard, a powerglove, a skull- the inqiusitors brought, but domingo was cornered buying time for their escape.
>>45801304Nice, sort of like that one test they have where they bring toys out in front of the kid and see if they play with the same toys as their previous reincarnations?
For them to still have their missionary aspect we had to drop the idea that they had vows of silence. But maybe they could have psykers who are sworn to silence, only talking telepathically, and wearing grotesque masks?
>>45801336IDK when I think monks I think medieval.
>>45801389you want them to be picking a current domingo reincarnation like with the dalai lama?- that would be a hell of a reason for them to show up on a world
>>45801413You mean their psykers are literally Magisters Immaterial?
>>45801304I really like the narrative. The king hears of the offworld priests coming to test this religious figure. The Emperor's Children advise subterfuge, luring these dignitaries into the main temple and to them that plays out one of two ways. Either Domingo does not show up and people lose faith in them or he does and they kill all of them and blame it on the rebels. Unfortunately for them this is Saint Domingo we're talking about and he said fuck those plans.I would just like to say this now, no more than a couple of Emperor's Children should be involved, they simply came to corrupt the planet. Fighting a major warband of CSM without support for a while would be a bit mary sue. I would also be down for the rebels fighting against the scouts the EC sent along to seed the planet and then the Templars and the EC main warband show up around the same time on the planet.
>>45801439Yeah except since this is 40k it's skulls. Lot's of them and then maybe he has to pick out which skulls were his in a previous life
>>45801426Well monks, yeah but soldiers evolve a lot
>>45801449i guess? but not so much in how they are but in how they are seen by the rest of the regiment- dressed that way because the others see them as sinister, and silent because they focus on what makes them evilsickwrong in an effort to sanctify it. after all these are psykers in a group of fanatics, they would embrace their own degradation, much the same way the regiment as a whole has embraced their own guilt in an effort to appease it
We could have masses as priest and common folks, commanders as conquistadors leading.
>>45801496in the right order even- each skull is decorated abstractly (semi-dia des los muertos style?) in a reference to the events that took place under that leader, and the chose proveshimself by putting them in order, perhaps with "hints" from political sources
>>45801534I like the vow of silence for the psykers, maybe with their minder being their mouthpiece since I would imagine just suddenly telepathically talking to everyone in 40k is a quick way to get shot.As far as the Regiments views on them I think they would be held in awe. Each psyker they have should have been soul bonded to the Emperor. They were in his holy presence and are a living embodiment of His Will.
>>45801602that should be *chosen*, as in elect
>>45801336If no, then look at Redemptionist from Necromunda, or at Ecclesiarchy priests mayby you will find something.
>>45801602Fuck yes, Dia De Los Muertos Skulls deserve a place here
i'm thinking that the conquistador/franciscan/dominican pastiche gives good trappings, but maybe there ought to be more of a cohesive style to the regiment. Maybe in how they operate or philosophize? It might behhove us to look back to that list of other options- the thuggee ambushment could still be doe with faux-rosaries, for example, and would be useful for getting sentries- if they are light armored anyway, practically unarmed scout/assassins could be aesthetic. especially if they have loyalist or convert supporters around them for camouflage.
>>45801657but not too overdone- we need an actual artist to work up a good 40k grimdark design. actual Dia De Los Muertos stuff is too festive.
>>45801755Fair point.I like that that style of discovering Sainthood give Domingo an even greater history in the eyes of the Regiment regardless of whether or not he was an actual saint (or maybe an unborn saint, one that was killed before it could manifest?) In the eyes of the Regiment he definitely was and that makes those actions the other skulls have already done are also his works.
there isn't much about reincarnation of humans in the warhammer universe. How would the ecclesiarchy as a whole view this thought of Domingo's perpetual resurrection?
>>45801934I'm sure they've heard of crazier. The view itself sounds good, a soul that loves and serves the Emperor so well that he sends them back in order to lead those who are falling astray back to the light. That might explain why they're so militant as well, they believe that he can only be reincarnated in areas that are forgetting the Emperor so that he can lead the faithful and fix (read: kill) the broken. They go diving into these areas to seek out their saint again
Anyone down for making the new thread? I am at work or I would do it
>>45801997and recruit generally, and bust out a bunch of weird skulls and make all children born at a certain time TOUCH THEM. and if they touch them JUST RIGHT, they take the kid away forever. GRIMDARK.
>>45802019I might soon.
>>45802055Nice, they do it while preaching and ministering to refugee populations from the warzones they go to. Whether or not the kids are actually guided by the Emperor or if it's just a startling portrayal of the Monkeys with Typewriters their recruitment numbers remain steady. The Trial of Saint Domingo was done with holy relics, the trials for recruitment are done with the preserved skulls of their Command structure
>>45801997God Emperor can send back someone soul, but he cannot return to his body ? Hymm tell more about this, to mister Inquisitor.
>>45802148The God-Emperor can return to his body if he wanted to, that is not his plan though, we must trust his plans. He is testing us in the fires of war. We were found wanting once and we will not be found wanting again.
