https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Space_Marine_Chapter_Creation_TablesI haven't seen one of these threads for a while, and I think it's high time to correct that.Somebody please roll 1d10 for why the chapter was founded.
>>61196494Rolling for the Emperor.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>61196494>>61196771Come on.

Rolled 5 (1d10)>>61203338

Rolled 84 (1d100)>>61203615
>>61203631Alright, so no mutations, coolMoving on, it's time to roll 1d100 for our figure of legend!
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>61203677Here's to hoping for something cool
>>61203770So who do we hate?
>>61203770A Battle-Brother seconded from a previous generation Successor or even the First Founding Legion that provided the ne Chapter's gene-seed. Roll again on this table to determine what type of warrior he was, rerolling if you he this result again.The dice have spoken. Roll 1d100, anything below a 20 is invalid.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>61203874>>61203975For the Emperor?
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>61203975
>>61204078Our figure of legend is our Chapter Master, excellent.Now, what did he do? Roll 1d100 to find out!
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>61204147
>>61204198Ah, slaying a daemon prince. That explains why my Death Guard army doesn't have any.
>>61204198>>61204340>Figure of Legend: Our Chaptermaster, from a previous generation, who fought and slew a Daemon PrinceCaw caw motherfuckers?
>>61204494Alright, give me a 1d100 for the homeworld.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>61204590That's what I get for typing while eating like a moron
>>61204198The individual was a stalwart enemy of the servants of Chaos, and slew a Daemon Prince.Awesome.Now would somebody be so kind as to roll 1d100 for our homeworld?
>>61204606I'll take this, which means that we hail from a civilized world.Somebody please roll 1d100 for our homeworlds terrain.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>61204712We are civilized folk here
>>61204734Survey says... Jungle!Now that that's done, somebody please give me 1d10 for how we run things on our homeworld.
>>61204494I think you mean>Caw caw heretics!
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>61204840A Raven Guard Primaris Successor Chapter, whose legendary figure is their Chaptermaster who killed a Daemon Prince. They rule a civilized Jungle World how...?
>>61205128Stewardship - " Hi, Planetary Governor? It's me, the Chapter Master. Just calling you to remind you that I outrank you, even if I don't do anything."Alright, so we prefer a hands off approach, cool. Somebody roll 1d10 for our chapter organization.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>61205234
>>61205336Divergent chapter.So we like to do things a little differently around her, eh? I like it.Now let's see how we prefer to slaughter heretics and xenos. Roll 1d10 for combat doctrine.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>61205387Caw
>>61205446Thunderhawk assault, how fitting.Because we are a divergent chapter, I need someone to roll me 1d100 for special equipment.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>61205495
>>61205630Totemic Charm: This Chapter has strong beliefs in the icons of either the Emperor or their Primarch. A Battle- Brother from this Chapter would never be caught without such an icon on their person. Example: Chapter Heraldry on a necklace, Imperial Aquilla tattooed over the right eye.Okay, so we're just a little OCD when it comes to expressing our beliefs. Speaking of, roll 1d100 to see what our chapter beliefs are!
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>61205662Guess we'll have to figure out what the totem is at some point.
>>61205676Revere the Primarch - "Our Spiritual Liege is better than yours!"Praise be to Corax! I guess our totem is probably the raven guards heraldry, given that roll.Moving on, somebody needs to roll 1d10 to determine our chapter strength.
>>61196494why are marine arms so short, longer arms make you more dangerous in a mele, humans only have smaller arms than apes because it's easier to balance, but really tiny short arms don't really add to that.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>61205779CAW FOR THE PRIMARCH
>>61205927Nominal: The Chapter can field ten full companies, each with ten squads. In all likelihood most every squad consist of ten brethren and some specialised appointments may be empty, but the Chapter is regarded as fully fit for battle.This is good, more soldiers for the fight.Now, please roll 1d100 for who our chapter is friendly with.
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>61205976Rolling for the omnissiah

What is the name of our chapter?
>>61206241Edgy Beaky BrigadeI'd say something crow related, possibly something to do with the whole Scions of Mars/Friends with the Titanicus thing?
>>61206339The Iron Wings? It would go along nicely with our combat doctrine.
>>61206339Kooky Rooksbeing serious, Talons of Mars
>>61202158That's pretty sweet art. I wanted to do something for all the characters of Badab that didn't have a model and I thought that maybe Issodon could have been using some sort of precursor to primaris weapons that had wandered away from one of Cawl's tests or forges.>>61206241These guys are starting to sound like the US in Vietnam. Fighting those Webway rats while raining death from above. Shall the Ride of the Valkyries be the chapter anthem?
>>61206379steel feathersferrus corvusmetal birdssilver crowschain pigeonsforge talonsplatinum eagleschrome hawks
>>61206474>Shall the Ride of the Valkyries be the chapter anthemi have no problem with this.i love the smell of promethium in the morning.
>>61206472>>61206446>>61206379Those are some good fucking names. I personally second Talons of Mars or Storm Crows, especially because of Storm Guardian Eldar, which we hate
>>61206513What if we got edgy and referenced crows as a group and call them the Iron Murder. None shall stand against their edge
>>61196494>I haven't seen one of these threads for a whileWe have like 5 a week
>>61206474>Shall the Ride of the Valkyries be the chapter anthem?Yes, a thousand times over.
>>61206558Maybe, but we've not had a good one since the macuahuitl knights
>>61206339Iron Rooks? Both because Rooks are corvids but also because the chess piece is a moving tower, which seems appropriate for both Thunderhawks and Titans.
>>61206549Iron Murder is a bit too Khornate, by the emprah
>>61206379regarding the doctrine.thundercrows keeps infantry of the titans feet so they can focus on bigger targets.on top of providing excellent reconnaissance and battlefield intel.this also pairs with how they deal with their homeworld in a low key, out of sight out of mind, way.
>>61206598This was my thinking behind the Kooky Rooks...
>>61206546You make a good point, I'll throw my hat in the ring for Storm Crows.
>>61206598Sounds good desu. So looks like we’re forgoing our glorious primarch’s tactics and going full apeshit with aerial support and our titan friends?
>>61206618Makes sense to me.
>>61206618Don't the Mechanicus have Skitarii to be the Titan meathshields? I could see them going ahead of the titans to remove anything that could cause harm, allowing the titans to become the center of attention. And then they swoop in en masse with their thunderhawks and stormbirds to deliver true shock and awe.
>>61206698thats the go to strat, but no battle plan survives contact with the enemy.and thunderhawks are a helluva lot faster than skitarii.
>>61206685There's a time to be subtle and leave no trace, and there's a time to go balls to the wall death from above. Just because nobody knows that we engage in the former doesn't mean we're not good at stealth, it just means that we're so good at it, nobody has ever caught on.
So how do we worship our primarch anyway? Do we, given our admittedly close ties to the mechanicus, worship him as a son of the omnissiah?
>>61206756No, we follow his example by buddying up to the people with access to the best weapons so that we have more tools at our disposal to annihilate the enemy, particularly the eldar scum.
>>61206731Oh yeah sure, I think your original strategy just made it sound like the chapter was slogging around at the feet of titans. When that would be the duty of the attached Skitarii regiments. I think the idea is that the chapter does something to compliment the titans. And that could be speed and precision, compared to the slow and deadly approach of the titan.>>61206756I could see it being a means of worshipping their primarch by bringing his teachings and ideals to the machine. It could almost be like a challenge for them to bring the teachings of shadow and stealth to their war machines.
>>61206744The dirtiest trick is to cause a giant diversion with more thunderhawks than anybody thinks possible while titans somehow sneak up on the enemy.
>>61206836The best way to hide a sneak attack is with a sneak attack
>>61206836Or maybe have the enemy so preoccupied with the giant robot outside that nobody notices literal crates full of supplies and piles of data being stolen by the scouts, or hears the incoming thunderhawk bombing raid.
>>61206930You know what that could actually work. Using both aerial strikes and some help from our titanicum buddies as a diversion while the strike teams sneak in to get the real targets. I like this.
>>61206756Well, there was that one time Corvus thought he could do a better space marine and fucked up. Maybe now that these guys are Primaris and jacked up with cybernetics they think they're living up to that next generation he attempted?
>>61206990I want to believe there was one time that they managed to stealth a titan onto the field, and it was all the plan of the Chaptermaster who slew a Daemon Prince.
>>61196494>I haven't seen one of these threads for a whileWe literally had one yesterday.
>>61206992Does anyone even know about what he did?>>61206990I mean the thunderhawks really help get fire off the titans, I mean who do you shoot? The giant fuckoff big robot, or the planes shooting your guns that can kill the the fuckoff big robot?
Can we get some writefaggots in here?
>>61207023Maybe in some lost archive of the Raven Guard or Raptors, but I'm sure Corax removed it all after he had to put down his corrupted sons
>>61206990>papa farseer, whats that rumbling?>oh its just those foolish mon'keigh doing another bombing run, dont worry they can reach us here.>but they kinda sounds like footsteps.>...farseer looks outside and sees a walking cathedral of death, chanting binary insults about the farseers progenitor, and its way closer than what it ought to be.
>>61207104>cancant*fuck me and my non text checking ways
>>61207003Love that, no one says you have to kill the Prince with a (stupid) sword, when a Warlord titan can do it for you.
So how did we get to hate the eldar that badly? Did they ditch us in our glorious fight against a daemon army?>Glorious chapter is fighting a Slaaneshi incursion, eldar joined us for some reason>Turns out they were just trying to recover some soulstones>They literally vanish as soon as they are done>Chapter manages to win the day, taking down a powerful daemon prince to boot (maybe the titanicus saved us, which is why we’re so buddy-buddy with em), but suffer grievous casualties>Manage to replenish our lost numbers, but our murderboner for the elves is still going>binarycaw.jpg
>>61207145>puny human, you think that little peashooter of a gun can hurt me?>no i dont, so i brought one that could.suddenly a vast shadows grows over both combatants.the daemon turned around, only to look down the barrel of a volcano cannon.while it was distracted, the chapter master released a skyhook that was promptly picked up by a thunderhawk speeding by.the daemon let out impotent screams of frustration as it was burned with the heat of a thousand suns.
>>61207214This sounds about right.
>>61207214maybe the eldar fought the titan legion, without the chapter there, and managed to take down a much beloved titan, crew and all.their hatred for the eldar is fueled by the murder of a titan friend, and the shame of not being there to protect it.
>>61207145To be fair, the titan was called the Sword of Judgement, so people sort of got confused when retelling the tale.
>>61207225>thousand sonsBut that's heresy
>>61207357Learn to read.>>61207351Thanks for the chuckle.>>61207214>>61207340Could Eldar Rangers outsneak us?>>61207225Yeah that sounds right.
>>61207417Sure, Eldar Rangers can out sneak a normal space marine, but can they out sneak a marine with an omnidirectional multiwave auspex tuned to the biology of their filthy xenos body?
>>61207511And now you know why are we so butthurt about it.
>>61207145>>61207214>>61207225>>61207340>>61207351>The Eldar have left us to fight against the impending wave of Chaos alone. Our Thunderhawks have done all they can, but most have been downed or destroyed. The Titanicus are nowhere to be found.>The Daemon Prince leading the incursion challenged the Chapter Master to a duel, aiming to besmirch his honor by making him back down. It did not work-- he is indomitable, and possibly the smartest out of all of us, despite being from an earlier generation.>I remember seeing Daemon's claws clash with our Chapter Master's Thunderclaws, the sparks lighting the night as our forces still fought among themselves.>Few things will ever give me as much hope as seeing a silhouette the size of a mountain in the smoke and fog of war.>Fewer things will give me as much as seeing that warm glow break through the dark.>The tide turned in our favor then, the Sword of Judgement among other, smaller machines saving countless of my brothers.>We would later learn that they had been held up by Eldar. Evidently a portion of their force had kept the Titanicus distracted while they finished some mission we had mistaken for staving off the daemons.>They destroyed one of the Titans, along with the crew.Would it be cool if the totem item for the divergent chapter thing was like a helmet or weapon made from pieces of the titan they failed to protect?
>>61207626>Would it be cool if the totem item for the divergent chapter thing was like a helmet or weapon made from pieces of the titan they failed to protect?I'm down with it.
All of our thunderhawks have been modified to resemble crows.
>>61207626> Our brothers coudln't celebrate for long, as Eldar treachery made the victory short lived.> A small group of Rangers rigged the Sword of Judgement, our savior, and as He delivered the final blow to the daemon prince, His reactor shielding failed, doing irreparable damage and burning the crew.> To this day our chapter standard depicts the battle and every brother carries a small raven skull made from the Titan's armor.We still revere our Primarch, hence the raven skull.
>>61207833>Our savior was laid low by the treacherous Eldar.>Truly the only beings we may trust are ourselves and our brothers of the Titanicus, and it is but another reason to be smarter than our enemies.
>>61207626>the eldar cower and hide, in mists and shadows.>they move unseen and strike only to vanish again.>the fog of war lies heavy on this accursed place.>threatening to bring you down, before you can even bring your weapons to bear.>but fear not.>they are not the only ones quick and quiet.>and we shall paint a great tapestry of targets across your screens, until they look as stars in the sky.>keep your weapons armed and ready, great machine.>and we shall show you their path.>this we swear: another titan will not fall prey to these xenos again.>not as long as we still draw breath.the chapter master giving a message over the vox network to his titan allies, before a battle with the eldar.
>>61207626>>61207781Make it like a primaris helmet shaped to look similar to the titan that was destroyed.
So are we settled on the name Storm Crows?
>>61207954Exactly.>>61208090I love how our (comparatively) small marines are the big brothers protecting and comforting these massive machines of doom.
>>61208120>>61208090>Brothers, remember that iron and steel cannot die; it merely changes shape. The crew, their souls, they are the same.>It has not left us, nor will the spirits of those who found themselves taken into the molten heart of our fallen warrior.>I won't scatter your sorrow to the heartless warp.>We'll make helmets from the cooled metal, take them into battle with us.-- Chapter Master [Crow Pun Here]
>>61208220I think we've settled on Storm Crows.
So if we have the Storm Crows being buddy buddy with the adeptus mechanicus, would they be more friendly with those leaning towards Cawl's line of thinking. Perhaps they even test his experiments and creations on the field?
>>61208604We are not buddies with Machanicus, but with Titan Legions.
>>61208684Well, technically their chapter demeanor was rolled as Scions of Mars, so we may be on better terms with the Mechanicus than most at least, but we are still far better allies to the Titan Legions.
>>61208579This is real rough, but maybe something like this for the chapter symbol
>>61208915Slap that shit on a modified extra-fast Thunderhawk with more guns and we got ourselves a chapter.
Any writefags in this thread? If so, I would like to read about some of the Storm Crow's exploits.
>>61209150What are potential exploits and characters?The Chapter Master would have to be one, of course, and his slaying of the Daemon Prince/sneaking of the Sword of Judgement has already been explained. He also needs a name.
>>61209218Well, given our established hatred of the eldar, something to do with hunting them down and getting some revenge wouldn't be out of place. Maybe the Storm Crows provide unexpected support for an imperial guard regiment.Something where they find an ancient titan, perhaps?As for the Chapter Master's name, I will throw out Ishmael Strunn.
>>61206597And what makes you think this one will be good?
>>61209418>That time where a squad of Storm Crows, after crash landing on an unknown planet in their daring escape from an Eldar Craftworld they sabotaged, had to outsmart one pissed Farseer and the local flora and fauna to get an ancient titan back to the Titanicus.
Alright so I just got done digitizing the emblem, Thoughts?
>>61211387I like it.
>>61210708>This is the formal inquisitorial report on Brother Dimicar of the Storm Crows Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. He was one of the four marines reported to have been missing by Chapter Master Ishmael Strunn.>After the destruction of one of the Adeptus Titanicus's Reaver Battle Titan "Sword of Judgement," they held a service in which each of the Chapter's members forged helmets out of the remaining scrap. Its reactor shields were rigged to fail upon use of its main weapon, resulting in the entirety of the crew to be either burned alive by the heat of its reactor or to be killed by the Titan's inner structure becoming compromised by overheat from both the reactor itself and its Volcano Cannon, which it used to exterminate a Daemon Prince before they could kill the Chapter Master.>Four of these Storm Crows, reeling from the loss of the Sword of Judgement and its crew, somehow managed to slip away from their brothers after the forging of their new helms and make their way off planet with a ship filled with enough Melta Bombs to put a significant hole in our munitions ledgers.>Or in an Eldar Craftworld.>When asked as to how he and his brothers knew where the Craftworld was, his only response was that he "could smell those treacherous xenos," and offered no other information. Due to the destruction of the ship that they had used, we could not gather anything else.>Due to a lack of familiarity with Eldar technology and civilization, the marines did not entirely manage to sabotage the Craftworld as a vessel, but they did manage to destroy a great many Wraithbone Constructs, as well as a massive, locked chamber full of tear shaped stones.>After enough explosions the Eldar finally caught on, and Dimicar had to escape with his marines. Their small ship wasn't quite equipped to handle a barrage from the Craftworld's own smaller vessels, so they then had to escape to the nearest planet, which we now know to have been stricken from the records for reasons unknown.
>>61211893Nice, keep going.
>>61211893>The planet is not unlike their homeworld, though its jungles were not anywhere near as tame as those which they were accustomed to.>They had only the minimal equipment they had brought with themselves on their demolition mission, but they are Space Marines. Dying of exposure or hunger was out of the question for the most part, though the local flora and fauna were quite hostile based on what we now know.>There were several nights where the marines were attacked by various native predators and carnivorous plants. Most of their munitions were used to save themselves from the jaws of xenos beasts. We have logged what samples they kept of the creatures that had attacked them on the planet. More research to be done.>Around a week or so after they landed, they found a signal to follow. Some strange frequency continued getting picked up by their equipment, along with an odd spike in radiation in the direction of said signal. It led them toward the only mountain they had seen on the planet's surface, surrounded by massive trees and heavy foliage in every direction.>When they arrived at the mountain, they entered what they had thought to be a cave mouth. Dimicar stated that he remembers one of his brothers thinking it was other marines, stranded. He himself thought it might be more Eldar, or perhaps even Orks.>Those theories were debunked quickly upon finding the source of the radiation and frequency: a dormant Titan's Reactor Core, far larger than even the Sword of Judgement's.>The mountain they had found was a long abandoned Titan, one which may have been somewhere close to an Imperator class, if only a bit smaller.>Utilizing what little they knew of how to work a God-Machine from the Titanicus, they managed to amplify the signal and seal the radiation again. It is a working hypothesis that the core's radiation may have accelerated mutation in the flora and fauna surrounding. It was not long before we picked up their signal.>So did the Eldar.
>>61212065Hey, thanks. Long time reader, first time writefag.>>61212355>When we arrived two nights later- the Storm Crows demanded they prepare for at least a night before we head out to find their squad, as they expected them to be able to hold out for at least that long and required the utmost preparation- we saw a planet littered with wraithbone wreckage, some minor vessels stuck in trees while other constructs that had been made were, in the meanwhile, impaled on the surroundings, destroyed by traps of ingenious make, or toyed with by some of the native species.>Evidently the Eldar, in all their "superior" xenos wisdom, had decided that it would not be hard to kill a few mon'keigh on some planet they had no equipment on.>First came the destruction of the vessels they sent in the ground troops on. When their soldiers did not return from the jungle, they sent in their constructs of wraithbone.>A couple squads were killed by predators, others destroyed by the machinations of the marines. Traps, constructed out of metals from the Titan and materials from the nature surrounding, killed many of the Eldar with ease. >The Eldar did not find that cave entrance. After enough of their warriors went missing they simply cut their losses, we believe.>After retrieval, punishment has been forgone for Dimicar and his squad, as they showed amazing wit in the face of death and found the Titan we currently refer to as "Tempest Citadel.">A member of the Titanicus informed me, later, that they are thinking of changing the name once they get all of the wildlife off of it.>Dimicar is to be bookmarked for later surveillance, at the request of Ishmael.>--END OF REPORT--
>>61211387I also like it. Have we thought about a color scheme yet? Black and white? Black and purple? Black and black?
>>61212680Now that was an excellent piece of writefaggotry. Was this really the first time you've written anything like this? If so, it doesn't show.
>>61212741First time I've written anything I cared to put out for public consumption. I write stuff, but I usually just put it in the bottom of a drawer or save it and never post it. Thanks, really.
>>61212713I'm thinking black for the main body, gold for the symbols and heraldry, with trim varying between marines depending on their speciality. For example, a techmarine might have a blue trim, whereas an apothecary might ave a green trim. Yes, I took this idea from the raven guard, because it works.
>>61212776In that case, I applaud you anon. Feel free to share anything else you come up with, I'll read it.
>>61212860This desu. If there’s one thing /tg/ needs, it’s more quality writefags.
>>61212794I agree on the colored markings for specialities, though i disagree on the colors chosen. I think maybe doing special marking on the armor might be the way to go. Something unique.Does anyone have the primaris color scheme maker that isnt shitty?
>>61212860>>61212885Thanks guys, I'll try to do more around the board.
>>61212912I've got this saved from somewhere, but I don't think it's the best.
>>61213359It's good. Would have preferred it all black and White but I think the person who made this had the right idea.
>>61212912Well, what colors do you suggest? I'm willing to negotiate anything but the different markings for specialties.
>>61213425blue for tech priest, and green for apothecary seems just plain wrong. They should stick to red and white and are their own distinct marking.I feel we should be talking about the basics first, rather than the specialist roles. Like tactical, assault, elite, and heavy support.I think one idea might be to reference old heresy era markings for them. I mean, a lot of PRimaris were from the pre-heresy to post-heresy years. That could be why they have such a strong connection to their primarch. They were gone when he left, and they feel guilty about not being with their chapter at the time of need.
>>61213534>I think one idea might be to reference old heresy era markings for them. I mean, a lot of PRimaris were from the pre-heresy to post-heresy years. That could be why they have such a strong connection to their primarch. They were gone when he left, and they feel guilty about not being with their chapter at the time of need.That seems reasonable, I can get behind that.Heavy support should probably be easy to spot, both to recognize an ally and to draw the enemies attention away from the lighter units. I'm thinking bright colors for them.Tacticals should probably have more muted colors, something that just blends in, to keep them from being noticed.I'm not sure about assault or elite units. Any ideas?
>>61213649Well now I'm wondering two things. Should we have a specialized air support unit for the Storm Crows? Or should certain squads be this sort of thing only. I could see that those squads dropping from the thunderhawks aren't their infiltrators, and sort of drop down guns blazing on the enemy as the Emperor's fury rains down from the heavens. That I could see being the tactical and heavy weapons squads. But since these are primaris, their infiltrators are the elite reivers, And two, how should we address the ties to the mechanicus? Should we implement cogs into their iconography?
>>61213734With the emphasis they place on thunderhawk assault, They should definitely have people whose sole purpose in the chapter is to pilot them.> drop down guns blazing on the enemy as the Emperor's fury rains down from the heavens. That I could see being the tactical and heavy weapons squads.I agree. stealth operations tend to be the riskiest and most difficult, so it makes sense that only the most elite among them are entrusted with such tasks.> how should we address the ties to the mechanicus?That's easy, change the raven from holding a lightning bolt in both talons to the raven holding the lightning in one talon and a cog in the other.
>>61213939Well Here's my first draft of a color scheme. With all the old symbols based off of heresy era markings.
>>61214811I like it.
>>61214811I really like that red, good job anon.
>>61214811>>61215101>>61214876And here's me just finishing up the last. I feel that the Sergeants are just reverses of whatever their squad markings are.
What about our motto?How about our battle cry?
>>61215144We shall suffer the alien... nevermoreWe shall suffer the witch... nevermoreWe shall suffer the heretic... nevermoreThe Imperium will suffer the unclean... nevermore
>>61215153Okay, there's a motto, but it seems a little long for a battle cry.
>>61215153The first part of each line is said by the Sergeant or leader of the group, with 'nevermore' being croaked back by the group as a whole.
>>61215144>How about our battle cry?Death from above, leave them for the crows!
>>61215169I like this.
>>61215169That's what I was thinking. I also imagine this being rehearsed by their chaplains at morning and evening prayer.I was also thinking a quote about them could go something like:General Barrius of the 33rd Vermillion Rifles on the battle prowess of the Storm Crows"They walk besides gods.They fly like angels.But they fight like devils.">>61215177I was thinking something maybe like, "Ride with Lighting! But strike in Shadow" But I'm thinking that might be the motto of their Reivers
>>61215275I like "Ride with the Lightning! Strike from the Shadow!".>>61215130Loving it.
>>61215377Maybe " With lighting we ride! From shadow we strike!"
Alright I added the last bits of motto and what not to this. If I miss anything, hopefully the thread will be alive before I go to work tomorrow.
>>61215153>>61215166>>61215169And here's me faffing about in photoshop just to see if this would be cool.
>>61215594Yeah, much better.>>61215799>>61215811Nevermore! What about using some picture with titans? I'll post some.
>>61215855Tried it with this one. Thanks.
>>61215944Wait no, fuck this one. I messed up a bit
>>61215961Sweet! That would warrant Storm Crows' 1d4Chan page.
>>61216029If doing all this stuff creates a 1d4chan page I will be erect for a month.
>>61216029Yes, somebody please make a 1d4chan page and post a link here.
Can someone archive this on suptg? I would but I'm on my phone.
New primaris chapters still have manlets, right? Do we have assault marines?
i wasnt the biggest fan of storm crows but popular opinion seems to have won out.as for the color scheme, i im liking >>61215799 but i would suggest changing the red for a silver or metal color.i get red for mars, but i dont think it jives with the raven guard aesthetics.i do wholeheartedly like the insignias.some other ideas i had, in no particular order:giving their connection to the titan legions, tanks and other heavy machinery is always well maintained.all marines are tought to observe the proper rites and rituals regarding their equipments machine spirit.techmarines holds a special position in the chapter, often working as liasons to titan crews.servo skulls resembling crows.a notable tactic is using continual bombardment to provide smokescreens for titans.there is a warhound titan that honors the chapter with a crows head cockpit.a few titans have thunderhawk landing platforms.imperator princeps can have a fair bit of clout, so one might have a squad serving as honor guard.it is often used as a term of endearment to refer to titans as small or little brothers.the marines somtimes play out stealth missions on titan targets to test their skill and the legions defenses.sufficiently large titans are sometimes used as literal cathedrals.a few titans are marked with the heraldry of the chapter, and few tanks and thunderhawks with the healdry of the legion.
>>61220505I like everything about this post.
>MRW eldar scum has me sorrounded but they dont realize i was just a distraction to sneak an entire titan behind their frontlines.
>>61220505Idea: the official chapter name is Storm Crows, but the Titanicus calls them the Talons of Mars.
>>61222282>tfw the Titanicus crew you're protecting lets you press little brother's big red button
>>61223958>CAW CAW, XENOS SCUM.
Oh, I would have suggested something like Iron Shrikes for the chapter name.
>>61220505Yeah the red being a connection is a great observation anon, much better than my opinion that it would look cool. Honestly though, I went with red because it really it gave me a vibe of power, and is very dominating. Honestly, when I imagine the Storm Crows I think about them walking out of the front hatch of a thunderhwak just blasting everything away around the front. Marching slightly more slowly and methodically as they blast everything around them. Which to me, is one of the ways they utilize their thunderhawk assaults, those are where they draw the attention of their enemies, bursting through fire and flames and making themselves known to strike fear and disarray throughout the enemy. Meanwhile, their infiltrators utilize the fear to cause havoc in the back. And all this as the fires of a blast from a titan's weapon burns around them. I was thinking of how the fire interacted with the black and red and really wanted to go with that. And I double checked the raven guard successors to see what was good or not, and realized you totally have carte blanche on that. Some of the designs are loud as hell. But here is a possible silver version too.
>>61228517I like this design just as much as I do the other one. Maybe red for assault and silver for infiltrators?
>>61222282Can we get some writefaggotry of this?
>>61222282>>61229542>Be me, simple tactical marine Brother Barakiel>Titanicus brothers cannot get their Titans behind the Aeldari lines>Big hitters are all stuck holding the line, basically stuck at a stalemate with those disgusting xenos>Take a smaller scouting vessel on a basic recon run, bring a couple scouts with me>The moon we're fighting on is made up of incredibly durable rock, but its structure is almost hivelike, made up of winding, random tunnnels due to the way that the planet's minerals crystallize>Emperor-forsaken xenos would just think it's a quake, or that the sounds and vibrations were from above>Send transmission to request a warlord near my position>Time to get the Meltas.
>>61230986I like were this is headed, keep going...
A machine spirit of a Titan could get fussy about Walking through a jungle.The idea that the Titans themselves just plain like having thunderhawks/Marines around in terrain that's a lot like this chapter's home world tickles me for some reason.
>>61231681EMOTIONAL SUPPORT INBOUND
>>61231322>>61230986>Get one of the heavy artillery warlords, built to rain hell on anything it can get its sights on>The crew is nervous about the plan, some claiming it to be insane, but I do not listen>TONIGHT THE GOD-MACHINE TRAVELS BY SHADOW>It takes a couple days, but we manage to lower the titan entirely beneath the planet's surface, then some extra distance to make certain its head would not pop out at any random time>Then came the long walk.>Above us the battle raged without end, at all hours. Beneath us, we feared that the titan may very well cause what rock it had to walk on to collapse>After a few more nights, we knew we were behind enemy lines. We did not know where, but we were.>My brothers and I made our way to the surface, managing to pop out without being spotted just yet.>On every side we were surrounded by xenos, those damned Eldar.>I radioed the Titan beneath us that it would begin firing in thirty seconds, else the battle may be lost, along with the little brother.>From that point it became a race to get out of range, diving straight into Aeldari forces. You'd be amazed of the distance you can get out of a Thunderhawk when you care to follow the Mechanicus's example.>We several Wraithlords and Wraithguards, along with some of their skirmishing vessels, had decided to focus on us as we blasted past.>They were looking the wrong way when the thunder came from beneath.>All of the firepower of a Warlord Class Battle Titan roared from underneath their feet, and I made certain to double back after losing the skirmishers to then watch our plan unfold.>Eldar troop and vehicle both fell into that deep, deep hole, assaulted by the subterranean Warlord. The battle would be ours soon.>We were, however, given warning from the Chapter Master after that. After the formal berating, we all went to worship together. We also had to help get the Warlord out of a hole filled with dead xenos.>We still fly beside that Warlord.
>>61228638Well infiltration is pretty much going to be all reivers because they're all fancy and new, like our boys. I was thinking the only thing red would be their skulls. And everything else is black.
>>61232003Excellent, thank you anon.
>>61232352Damn, thanks. I'm trying my hardest.
>>61231829Hey that cheered me right up. Mad jealous that Titans get Tactical Therapy Squad coverage and I don't.
>>61218543I'm with this anon, this thread needs to be archived.
Brothers, important question, what is the name of our favourite Titan legion, the one Sword of Judgement came from?
>>61218543>>61235012I filled out the request.
>>61235059That is something we may wish to think of.>https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Titan_Legion_Creation_TablesRoll 1d100 for Mainstay Engine.
>>61235208Thank you anon. Everybody, it's time to vote!
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>61235230on it.
>>61235252>Mainstay Engine: Nightgaunt PatternGoddamn.ANOTHER 1d100 FOR THE LEAD ENGINE.
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>61235276As you command, so shall it be.
>>61235282The Lead Engine section of the table was fucked, but if we just attribute the usual intervals it's another NIGHTGAUNT TITAN to lead the Legio.Another 1d100, for deeds of legend of the First/Lead Engine.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>61235314Done.
>>61235324>This Engine is remembered as the bane of the Orks, laying waste to whole Empires and countless Gargants and Stompas to such an extent that its name is known to the vile greenskins even to this day.Hype. 1d100 for Legio Homeworld. Don't everyone jump in at once.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>61235336Fingers crossed for Primeval Forge.
>>61235362Holy shit.>Antiquary World - The Adeptus Mechanicus is a millenia-old empire, spanning hundreds of thousands of worlds throughout the galaxy, and privy to uncounted secrets of the distant past. Some worlds ruled by the Mechanicus are repositories of that past, charged with safekeeping of the most ancient and mysterious relics of the Dark Age of Technology.Weird, mysterious titan friends.1d10 for legio age
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>61235379As fun as this is, what is the name of this mysterious Legio?
>>61235389>The Nova Terra Interregnum - The dark age of the Nova Terra Interregnum saw the Cult Mechanicus cleft in twain as the Moirae Schism rocked its own stability.It's a legion of Nightgaunts from an Antiquary World, whose best friends are a bunch of stealthaholics. Something mysterious and vaguely doom-y?1d10 for strength, and we'll ignore anything below 3-4 due to prior lore writings noting that they are not down to three titans.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>61235410The Legio stands ready!
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>61235410
>>61235438>>61235446>Under Strength - The Legio's victory has come with terrible costs.Looks like they need big brother Storm Crows to look after them after all.1d10 for deeds of note.
>>61235059Talons of Mars, seems fitting
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>61235455Though we stand weakened, the Legio marches ever onward to crush the foes of the Imperium!
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>61235470
>>61235467The unused Storm Crow name will be the Legio now, if the populace so deems it. I like Talons of Mars.>>61235470>Failure and Despair - The forces of the Imperium have been shamed! And the Legio played its part. Your stratagems were weak, you princeps inefficient, your Titans found wanting. The enemies of Mankind know your weakness, and to complete their humiliation, hunt you throughout the galaxy.Not looking good.1d15 for a failure!
Rolled 11 (1d15)>>61235488Oh no, what did we do wrong?
>>61235478>Trophy: Crusader's Banner - Your Legio was at the vanguard of an Imperial Crusade, serving as a beacon of glory and a spearhead of massacres. They won many honors for their actions.>>61235495>Looted - The Legio stood against a mighty ork WAAAAAGH!!! but was overcome by the Greentide forcing the legio to retreat in shame, leaving any fallen God machines to the crude machinations of the victorious Ork MeksNo wonder we hate Orks, are low on God-Machines, and have failed.1d15 for traditional quirks
>>61211387Gotta get rid of those feet or make them bigger. If you look at every war emblem where a bird is depicted (google image search), either the feet are carrying something, not shown at all in favor of the tail, or are way more intimidating.
Rolled 2 (1d15)>>61235512What sets us apart?
>>61235524>Steel Body, Steel Mind - The Legio is slavish in its devotion to the tenets and traditions of the Collegia Titanica.Gotta respect that. We know they're allies with the Storm Crows, but do the Talons of Mars have another ally?Roll a d15
Rolled 3 (1d15)>>61235539Here's hoping for Sororitas.
I have a proposal for the homeworld of the chapter (and the Titanicus legion)>The Talons of Mars hail from the ancient forge world of Discenus>Discenus has a single moon, called Discenus Alpha, a jungle world with a developed civilisation of its own, which the Mechanicus gave to the Storm Crows to use as their chapter homeworld
>>61235555That sounds reasonable. I support this as the origins of our friendship
>>61235550Unfortunately not, it seems the Talons' other ally happens to be an Imperial Guard Armor Regiment.d10 for enemy>>61235555I like it, Brother Quads.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>61235572If this goes tits up, can we just call it as either Orks or Eldar?
>>61235570>>61235572We should probably roll then for the forge world once we've figured out the Legion.>https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Adeptus_Mechanicus_Forge_World_Creation_Tables
>>61235590>Minor Xenos Leader/Foe>Another 1d100If it does, we can just do that, yeah.>>61235595In agreement, but it is established that their homeworld is already an Antiquary World with some deep, dank secret shit.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>61235608Fucked that up oops
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>61235607In the event that this isn't a 98-100, I throw my hat in the ring for Orks.

Rolled 3 (1d10)>>61235700>>61235710
>>61235727Semi-Orthodox: Holds most of the practices of Mars but has many of its ownJust like big brother Storm Crows, I like it. Do we want to roll for product of note, or just say Titans? If so, roll 1d10 for special product bonus.
>>61235572Does this mean we need to roll on this?https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Imperial_Guard_Regiment_Creation_Tables
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>61235739
>>61235754After forge world rolls probablyThis is all shaping up to be really good, I'm excited for the finished product
>>61235759Product of Note is 1d100I guess we could use that 3 for special bonus though. Esoteric seems appropriate
>>61235759Esoteric Design.So we like to build them kind of weird huh? alright, probably something crow themed, in all honesty. Roll 1d10 for Mechanicus demeanor.
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>61235785Product of note
>>61235785Given that we've already established that this Forge World is the home of a Titan Legio, we skipped rolling for product of note.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>61235789Mechanicus Demeanor
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>61235789Let's go
>>61235812>>61235813Holy shit!Up to you, OP.
>>61235812>>61235813>>61235825>Literally the same timeSo should we go with the higher roll or the one that makes them normal? It is an Antiquarian World with secret shit.
>>61235830I vote higher roll.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>61235812>>61235813I will roll 1d2. If it's a 1, I will use the two. If it's a 2, I will use the ten.
So it seems some of the ideas of the interactions between the storm crows and the talons of mars were there this whole time. It seems the emperor has guided these die this day. Perhaps that day the Sword of Judgement slew the daemon prince was the day their bond with the Storm Crows was forged. The chapter master had looked upon his noble savior, a god machine of ancient times. A creature of grandiose machinery, and unequalled firepower, but it was wounded, weak, broken not in steel, but in spirit. Ashamed and battered, this walking weapon of divine machinery still performed it's duty to the end. And all the chapter master could think of, all he could hear in his mind was the word of his primarch. The word they have etched into their psyche, to reconsile their ten millennia of slumber.Nevermore
>>61235886The 10 it is, then.Secretive, Very Suspicious, borderline Tech-heretics. I guess we only really trust the Storm Crows and this as yet unmade Imperial Guard Regiment. Roll 1d10 for Skitarii type, then we move on to the Guard regiment.
>>61235890This. A thousand times, this.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>61235907Roll for skitariiAlso I think the forge world robe colors should be black with white highlights to show their closeness with the Storm Crows
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>61235907
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>61235938>>61235940Again? Time for the d2, if 1 we use the two, if 2 we use the eight.
>>61235965Just use the 8 for strength
>>61235965The two, so be it.Skitarii Mars Pattern (codex style)Well, that's that done, we've already established that the Legio has taken a beating, so I won't ask you to roll for Legion strength.For reference:>>61235739>>61235807>>61235789>>61235907
>>61235996>https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Imperial_Guard_Regiment_Creation_TablesTime for numero cuatro
>>61235996Wait, misread the table, so an eight means that our Skitarii legion is over strength.
https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Imperial_Guard_Regiment_Creation_TablesOkay, train has no brakes, so let's roll up the Imperial Guard regiment the Talons of mars are allied with! Roll 1d10 for regiment classification.
>>61236012So an over strengthed skitarii regiment on a forgeworld with titans and an ancient and terrible secret. Strange eh?One idea I was thinking of was to throw some mystery into the forgeworld by having it go by the nickname of the planet. Shatter-Moon where the large moon that orbits the forgeworld has a massive hole going right through it. And not of a natural design it seems.
>>61236069Unless you want this to be a second moon, the original moon is the Chapter homeworld, which is a civilised jungle world
>>61236114I thought the chapter homeworld is separate from the titan's forgeworld? Like the two crossed paths rather than the chapter being stationed in their proximity
>>61236153The chapter was gifted the moon of the titan legion's forge world after they crossed paths
>>61236172Aye, missed that bit. That'll show me for skimming through the thread rather than reading everything.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>61236065
>>61236199Aren't we skipping class? We already determined it was an armor regiment
>>61236199Navy Armsmen: Experts in void-combat, they'll defend the ship or take the enemy's.Interesting, now roll 1d100 for recruitment criteria.
>>61236230Goddamn it better be spacers. The armored regiment could be made up of V O I D - T A N K S
>>61236213Right, armor regiment, sorry. 1d100 for recruitment criteria please.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>61236230Fingers crossed for spacers.
>>61236285That's a re-roll right there.
Rolled 1 + 1 (1d3 + 1)>>61236285Roll a number of d100's equal to the result.
Rolled 35, 66 = 101 (2d100)>>61236321on it.
>>61236339So is it both? Do we have vat grown nobility?
>>6123633935=Nobility: Bought their commission for honor and glory.66=Vat-grown: No families to complain, no friends to consider.Because we're Navy Armsmen, do we want to forgo these for Spacers? Either way, 1d10 for nature of recruitment.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>61236377I say we just take the Spacers.
>>61236377Well we could drop either or really. As nobleman grown from bio vats, probably because of space inbreeding, is strange for a ship. But just as strange for that ship to be have a tank regiment.But sticking to the rules of fate. We can totally just go for the spacers since that's written in.
>>61214811>>61215130yo them red stripes on the helmet are dope
>>61236403Vat-grown Spacers sounds better than Vat-grown nobility.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>61236377I vote Spacers
>>61236417Thanks man. I'll be doing work for the rest of these later after I get some sleep. I don't have work, so I'll spend the day on this thread probably.I'm definitely looking forward to SPACE TANKS
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>61236445Standard. Nobility doesn't work at all then.Roll for Homeworld
>>61236452Also if we roll homeworld lost while i sleep. Im just saying we should go with the idea of these naval armsmen being part of a space flotilla that fled the planet and are now buddy buddy with the titans and storm crows in their quest for a new home.
>>61236395Spacers it is then.Elite tithe: The best of the best of the planet were recruited for this regiment. (If caste-born or nobility was rolled on demographic table, you may select this by default)Only the best Spacers get to join up, eh? Alright, I can see that. Roll 1d100 for our regiments homeworld.
>>61236476Discenus creator here, I'm thinking the guard world should be closer to the systems binary stars than the forge world, and would have been a desert before becoming a hive world, and it's called Hastata
>>61236499Already rolled here:>>61236476
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>61236499Whatever kind of planet this is, Can it be near our Titanicus and Storm Crow buddies?
>>61196494Explain why that Space Marine looks like pic related
>>61236527Alright, I didn't see that. Teach me to skim through posts.Hive World: No claustrophobia, excellent sense of direction? Urban combat!>>61236529 can be for terrain.Ice: Cold-blooded, with hearts of fire.Okay, our homeworld is a frozen Hive World.We've established that we're an armored regiment, so let's move on to rolling 1d10 for our specialty.Also, it's really late where I am and I have work in the morning, so can someone else please take over handling rolls for the regiment?
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>61236605This shit ain't dying on me now.

>>61238666Oh my fucking god.
Rolled 96 (1d100)Rolling for special equipment.
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>61239904Modified equipment, I guess it pays to have friends in the mechanicus. Rolling for creed.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>61240176>For The Homeworld: This regiment's mission is to demonstrate the skill and steel of the homeworld to the rest of the Imperium.Kinda goes with Discenus' isolationismRolling for enemies, since friends have already been established as the Mechanicum/Legio Titanicus
>>61240622Chaos Space Marines, wow these guys must be some kinda badass. Although, what did we expect from STEALTH TANKS?Maybe these aformentioned CSM can be a traitor group from the Storm Crows
>>61240176For The Homeworld: This regiment's mission is to demonstrate the skill and steel of the homeworld to the rest of the Imperium.It may be cramped, remote, and frozen to the core, but it's ours, and nobody is ever going to take it from us.now, let's not extend the cluster fuck any further, and just say that our regiment is allied with the Storm Crows as well as the Mechanicus. Roll 1d100 for our regiments greatest enemy.

>>61240622Chaos Space Marines, holy shit. I guess This regiment doesn't afraid of anything.Okay, that's all the rolling done, you're up, writefags!
would love to write some stuff but can someone help me with a small summary of the the legio, forgeworld and regiment?thread has become a bit of a clusterfuck.how the hell did we arrive at stealthtanks?
Thought I'd do some writefaggotry to tie the new Guard regiment with the Storm Crows and the Talons of Mars>Be tank commander Valsten from the 3rd company of the Hastanan 19th Armoured Regiment "Snow Leopards">Fighting battle against Emperor's Children on frontier world>Taking heavy losses, with no line of retreat in sight>Turn to aim, but lascannon fire from enemy Helbrute destroys my hellhound's turret and fries the engine, the driver is now limp in his chair>Heretic Space Marines closing in, looks like my time is up>Pray to the Emperor for aid, hoping that I can make it out of here alive>All of a sudden hear sound of Thunderhawks overhead>Peak out over destroyed tank, black clad Astartes are engaging their heretic brethren>The leader of the Emperor's Children warband, an exceptionally grotesque Daemon Prince, steps forward and challenges the leader of the Imperial Space Marines to a duel>The noble Astartes accepts, lightning claws glimmering with holy light in the darkness>The duel rages on for hours, before the disgusting heretic gains the upper hand>About to cut down the Emperor's angel of death when a massive cannon charge sounds out from behind me>A FUCKING TITAN appears from the smog, and fires at the daemon, incinerating it instantly>Immediately after, an explosion rocks the god-machine, causing it to fall over, burning from its core>Regiment Commander, taking the opportunity, orders a full charge ahead>Obviously can't move my vehicle, so I order the remaining crew out and we charge on foot>Astartes and guardsmen fighting as brothers, with god-machines supporting from the rear>What a glorious sight to behold>Slaaneshi heretics are eradicated, Emperor truly bless this day>The Regimental Commander declared from this point forward, we are forever in debt to the astartes and the Mechanicum for their aidFirst time writing something, constructive criticism very welcome
>>61241136Pretty good for a first try, my only complaint is that it's not longer.
>>61241236Damn, I could write a part 2, maybe introduce how the concept of STEALTH TANKS came about
>>61241255Do it, I love me some writefaggotry.
>>61241136well done.alot of good callbacks to earlier posts.ie. its good but could use some dramatisation.unfortunately that can quickly turn out to become a wall of text in post format.alot of the lore seems to be coming down to this one crucial moment of a three way war between imperium, chaos and eldar.kinda makes me wanna throw some orkz in for good measure, perhaps there were the last of the WAAARGH responsible for the legios crippling, and so were being chased by the legio.a common thread seems to be principles of debt and loyalty.
>Be Regimental commander Hildetand>Six months since the fall of the Sword of Judgement>Supporting the Storm Crows astartes chapter against an Ork WAAAGH! that has overtaken much of the local sector>The greenskins had looted several titans, and were using them with deadly effect>The Talons of Mars had deployed their own god-machines to fight alongside the Astartes and my regiment, however they were severely under-strength and were barely holding the line against the Xenos onslaught>The Orks had even looted a massive Imperator-class titan, and intel suggested that the Warboss itself had taken up residence within it>The talons currently had no Imperators of their own, and as such were unable to go toe to toe with the defaced machine>We would need to take it down for there to be any chance of an Imperial victory>Lightbulb.astropathicchoir>I was born on Cadia, and I had once worked under the command of Lord Castellan Creed>I knew firsthand the type of exploits he could pull off that would turn the tide of even the most dire of battles>Summon the Storm Crows Chapter Master over the comms, and tell him to bring a Thunderhawk>Chapter Master Strunn arrives within minutes, I never cease to be amazed by the Storm Crows' timeliness>Tell him my idea, he seems interested>We're going to link up a Leman Russ Demolisher to the Thunderhawk, and drop it in on the top of the looted Imperator, where the Warboss is yelling commands to its subordinates>Stealth is of the upmost importance>Within the hour, a Demolisher from the reserves is hooked up to the underside of the Space Marine transport, complete with accompanying tank crew, and the large aircraft is off towards the titan>The airship uses the cover of stormclouds to fly directly over the god-machine at a height of about 25 feet>Just high enough for the idiotic greenskins to not notice over their usual infighting>"Brace for Impact!">The tank is mechanically unhooked from the Thunderhawk, and falls 25 feet....
>>61241987>We're going to link up a Leman Russ Demolisher to the Thunderhawk, and drop it in on the top of the looted ImperatorThe image this conjures is utterly hilarious.
>....straight onto the Warboss's head, killing him instantly>Orks across the battlefield in panic mode, killing each other to determine who the new Warboss will be>Demolisher drives straight through a horde of grots towards the supply elevator down into the central sections of the Titan>Busts through the doors of the cockpit firing wildly and damaging the internal command structure beyond repair>The machine spirits are with the Guard now>Orks and grots running everywhere, one jumps on top of the tank and tries to break the turret but gets a face full of lasgun fire before that can happen>Demolisher technician jumps out of the vehicle and runs for the control panel>Turns the Imperator towards another nearby looted titan and fires the vengeance cannon>The enemy titan's right leg is blown clean off, and this gives imperial forces the signal to turn the tide>Thunderhawks follow the first one's example and begin lifting tanks en masse and dropping them over enemy titans>There's even a fucking Baneblade haphazardly tied between two transports>One by one, the Ork titans fall, unable to properly deal with the onslaught of falling tanks>Psykers across the galaxy throw up and pass out as Tzeentch's sides go into the super-warp over the sheer amount of Just as Planned>After the battle, the techpriests of Discenus reclaim as many god-machines as the can, including the Imperator titan, which has been renamed "The Demolisher from the Heavens">To this day, the Hastanan 19th continues to use the strategy of "tank-dropping" to deadly effect
>>61242514>There's even a fucking Baneblade haphazardly tied between two transportsGlorious.
