We've had some Xenos and Chaos recently, but I haven't seen any good old loyalists. Tables here:https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Space_Marine_Chapter_Creation_TablesD10 to see why we were founded
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>63247763
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>63247836Standing force, now to see when we were founded
>>63247882oh my 32nd millennium we old as fuck
>>63247971dice+1d100lets see who's our daddy
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>63248033
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>63248084Pretty normal, but old, now for geneseed purity
>>63248584Perfect gene seed
>>63248673These guys are seeming pretty perfect, hope something more interesting gets rolled later
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>63248711Rolling for demeanor
>>63248711Now for chapter demeanor
>>63248779>>63248786I EASE THE MACHINES PAIN
>>63248828So we've got the perfect toaster marines, now for our figure of legend, who was he?Also, as a thought, maybe there's a link between them being perfect and them liking machines, perhaps some heretek shit going on to make them so good
>>63248865Perhaps there legendary figures should be a tech priest since they have a reverence for machines
>>63248938We could go with the master of the forge or just a normal tech-priest
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>63248865If we’re going to use the roll for a legendary figure I’ll provide
>>63248996Don’t use it, it’s make them blander
>>63249023Shall we go for the master of the forge then?
>>63248983>>63249019I say master of the forge
>>63249047Like this anon says >>63249060It’s a good fit so far for the chapter.
>>63249090Alright, someone roll for his legendary deed
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>63249106
>>63249090>>63249060>>63249047Set them to have a need for perfection in their craft. Similar to how Dwarf Runelords would spend centuries on some projects and would never recreate a previous work.
>>63249131I actually really like that, seems like they could fall to slaanesh worship fairly easily though, not that that's a bad thing nessecarily
>>63249122huh seems our boys raided a craft world, perhaps our Master of the Forge wanted some xenos tech to observe and find ways to counter it
>>63249189Another good trait or happening was for them to be humbled. Say they put too much faith in their gear and it was found wanting when put up against a slaanesh champion. This would drive them further to hone their craft.
>>63249220I feel like we're drifting into heretical territory here, but I like it>>63249232Sounds good to me
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>63249298>>63249232>>63249220Rolling for chapter homeworld
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>63249328rolling for terrain
>>63249328>>63249355An airless medieval world, thats definately odd, maybe people live underground?
>>63249396Live in dug out mountains. Magma underneath used for forging.
>>63249426That works, now, how directly do they rule?
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>63249439
>>63249396I guess the chapter has a few machines that might create some form of artificial air though they only do this to ensure new recruit since they don't like the average citizen touching their tech thus keeping them in the medieval status
>>63249453Distant rule, guess thats why the world is medieval, the chapter don't share their cool tech
>>63249477>>63249457Well I also think that the baseline humans could live in the upper crust as it were. Where the astartes live in the deepest parts of the world.
>>63249457>>63249477>>63249453They should recruit through bloodsport.
>>63249524maybe high tech blood sport, anyway we should role for chapter organization
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>63249587
>>63249587They should have a grande tourny but then bust out the chainswords.
>>63249523So instead of them being angels coming down from above they are more like demons, climbing up from the firey depths of the world
>>63249619Yeah hadn’t thought of that angle but it has an appeal to it.>>63249607I feel like a reroll or at least picking divergent would be a little more freeing.
>>63249649I feel unique is more fitting of these lads.
>>63249607looks like they still follow their parent chapters example despite some weird quirks, what about combat doctrine
>>63249674I agree with that >>63249680Is it cool if we instead go with unique?
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>63249680
>>63249457>>63249523Or the planet was artificial back in the DAoT, and the people retreated into underground bunkers when [UNSPECIFIED CATASTROPHE] caused the local atmosphere to become unbreathable. It's Mediaeval Fallout with O2 deprivation instead of radioactive waste.The scavenger-lords, nobles of the world utilise Imperial Knights to climb to the surface of the world to look for useful materials left behind when people fled to undervaults because of the [UNSPECIFIED CATASTROPHE], each Knight outfitted with limited atmo-scrubbers. These nobles are the lifeblood of each undervault, yet they themselves rely on the Chapter to provide them with the technical expertise and parts to keep their Knight suits functioning. Without any Knights, an undervault perishes due to... something or other that necessitates constant Knight scavenging of the surface world.
>>63249697>Shock and AweI want to see them formation fight in melee. To humans it would seem unreal to see such large demigod like creatures move so gracefully at the same time.
>>63249701I like that, maybe after we're done with the chapter we can roll up the knight house?
>>63249701perhaps the knights have to hunt for some valued material to keep the air coming that can only be found on the surface for some reason
>>63249701A nearby supernova not close enough to destroy it instead strips its magneto sphere off and it loses its atmosphere.
>>63249701I like this idea >>63249734Sweet, should we specialize in forge masters or should we roll and see what comes?
>>63249738That'd be neat, if we're going with >Space Marine Chapter is underground>Mortals (humans) live in the surfaceThen we could switch it to the Imperial Knight suits being the only thing the surface-dwellers have that can approach the heat near the planet core.The locals would revere the Knights as heroes of mythic proportions, champions of their people that dare to delve the forbidding depth of the planet's crust to meet the demigods that dwell within
>>63249789I have this image now of marines with like blackened bronze and dark red armour
since we got the basics of how the chapter fights we should start debating on their color scheme and heraldry
>>63249847This minus the chaos shit
So wait, are we going with Marines up, Humans down arrangement, or Marines underground, humans surface-dwellers?
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>63249838Going to roll for their signature and or unique item
>>63249933Humans are kept in vaults that are in the upper mantle of the planet, marines are at the outer core of the planet.
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>63249946Special Vehicle: This Chapter prefers to ride into battle in more modern conveyances. While the traditional Space Marine vehicle is the Rhino, other Chapters may use more rare vehicles as primary transport. Examples: Modified Rhino, Land Raider, or Land Speeder Neat.rolling for beliefs
>>63249880Exactly what I was thinking
>>63249980Maybe a Hades Drill or something to that effect?
>>63250047What about termites in place of rhinos
http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/smp.phpfound this painter but i dont have the skill to get spot on colors of >>63249880
>>63250047I was thinking of something a little duel purpose to tie into the shock and awe. A drill based drop pod that’s launched from an Artillery platform. Marines are loaded in and then the vehicle is used for drilling through and into enemy vehicles and the marines inside are left to mope up the enemy crew.
>>63250117maybe also to assault underground structures
>>63250117Yeah, that sounds better than my idea, also these drop pods would double as boarding torpedos
>>63250173Of course and to put massive holes in enemy structures as well.
>>63250217holes that can be used as entrances for others with the right equipment
>>63250117>>63250217>>63250235Sounds good to me>The Emperor Above All - "Screw your spiritual liege. The big E is where it's at." Or maybe Omnissiah focused?
>>63250271I think them worshipping The Emperor as the galaxy’s supreme craftsmen would be cool.
>>63250377Yeah, that makes sense
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>63250271Rolling for the strength of the chapter
>>63250477>Endangered: The Chapter numbers only a handful of Companies or less having suffered devastating losses in combat, accident, or dramatic genetic instability. If recovery is even possible it will take many decades, making every Battle-Brother (and his Progenoids) an invaluable resource. https://youtu.be/2uhxrPhVO8Y
>>63250477Oh fuck, there aren't very many, maybe why they're hiding in the outer core?
>>63250500>>63250490Could also be the reason why they love steel as it’s an easier alternative to natural healing.
>>63250522Getting this image of most, if not all of the marines having their limbs lost in disastrous combat, and thus making do with mechanical contraptions instead of tank-grown replacement limbs. If pushed to absolute desperation, we might even do the unthinkable - "Space Marines" that are almost entirely mechanical.
>>63250522"I don't have time to Heal! Just take the arm and leg off and replace it with Bionics! The Greenskins are almost upon us!"-Captain Luctussius Stronus
Rolled 67 (1d100)Rolling for the enemies of the chapter
>>63250568>>63250560I think a good theme for this chapter is a chapter of beaten down space marines who take pride in their crafts but who will absolutely push their bodies above and beyond what even a space marine can take.
>>63250594Chaos Space Marines (you should choose a particular warband, Chapter, or Traitor Legion) Now we gotta roll CSM>>63250596I really like it. The other Sons of Guilliman probably see us as oddballs among them.
>>63250594We haven’t rolled for allies if we use your roll for the allies table we could also come up with a guard regiment. Or we get CSM as our traditional enemies.
>>63250596So like a large number of them are just mechanical monstrosities at this point
>>63250596At first I was thinking Salamanders in terms of flavour, and then we suddenly looped back to Iron Warriors
>>63250630Many of the veterans amongst them are practically living suits of armor.
>>63250621So we need to roll up: A knight house, A CSM warband and whoever we get fir enemies
>>63250630What's left of them that is. Probably 2-3 Companies at this point>>63250641>>63250649Yeah these guys do give that vibe
Rolled 16 (1d100)Rolling for the chapter's best friend
>>63250655House time1d12 for Vow>>63250665Another Chapter (choose one)
>>63250665> Another chapter Could go Iron Hands or Salamanders in all honesty.
Rolled 2 (1d12)>>63250676
>>63250683Seeing as we're M32-founded, maybe we could be the older Chapter in the relationship, instead of being friends with one of the first Chapters? So our friend-Chapter is a more starry-eyed youngster type of Chapter to offset our more grim and jesus-christ-we-almost-got-wiped deal.
>>63250708>Strategic Prognostication - "Our tarot cards say there's going to be a threat here, maybe. Call the Knights!"We were founded to fight *Something*...1d100 for Contact
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>63250729
>>63250715LamentersThey may not be starry eyed youngsters but they offset our grim and stoic view with hope and nobility.
>>63250740The Forging: The Imperium contacted the House in the aftermath of the destructive Beheading, possibly discovering them in one of the Crusades of the newly-formed Adeptus Ministorum.So some time later than our founding? Seems reasonable1d10 for Sovereign
Potential color scheme lads?
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>63250758That's almost sweet, I like it. Kind of fucked for two near-destroyed Chapters to be buddying out right before our lights are extinguished, eh?>>63250772The colours even look Lamenter-ish>>63250767
>>63250758>>63250782Not sure on Lamenters, the other SM creation thread a bit back had the Lmaenters as the chapter friends as wellImperium: The House is loyal to the Imperium, and its Knights wear the Imperial Aquila with pride.Emperor fearing folks just like ourselves! Just as intended2d6 for our succession laws
>>63250758This, 100%, they complement eachother well>>63250772Maybe a bit more metallics, other than that it looks good
Rolled 1, 6 = 7 (2d6)>>63250846Ah well we could use the conservators as our friends they’d still offset our grim demeanor. And they’d even be greatful for our friendship.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>63250881Gavelkind/Partible Titles and Knights are split between all eligible inheritors by lottery. Roll a d2; on a 1, an inheritor cannot inherit a second inheritance until all inheritors have at least one, nor a third until all have at least 2, and so on; on a 2, they can (the lottery can return the same winner for every item, in theory). TyrannyThe set of inheritors is always the current holder of the title to the Head of the Household; roll again for inheriting the Head of the Household title. If you prefer, this can be any other title, although this will always inevitably eventually result in the owner of that title taking the Head of the Household title by force. That's an odd roll...
>>63250900Gender laws 2d6
Got some tech boyes
>>63250984I like this scheme
>>63250984>>63251012Bronze/Iron and blue imho. >>63249880>>63249847
>>63250683>>63250665>>63250715Astral Knights.Were best buds but they all died smashing into the world engine.
>>63250782“One day we shall meet our end” said Captain Stronus“A harsh truth my friend but for every second our chapters live it is time spent doing what we were born to do. Remind the galaxy that The Emperor watches and protects his faithful.” Said Captain Donatos of The Lamenters 4th company Stronus would’ve smiled at that had he not lost his lower jaw in combat still for a moment the often weighted glare of the captains visage lightened.
>>63251049Maybe that's why they're so stoic and grim, they lost those they were closest to
>>63251049>>63251076It could definitely work.
>>63250900Sounds simple enough to me - if you have an heir, they get your stuff; if you don't have an heir, it's apportioned by lottery.
>>63251076Their homeworld is near theirs but they were across the galaxy fighting some other threat.
>>63251101Could’ve been the fight that devastated their chapter.
>>63251076>>63251049I like the AK idea. Though Lamenters aren't a bad choice they're still around."Truly they embodied the heavens themselves that day. May they drink and be merry alongside the Emperor">>63251100That works very well, each holder holds their title(s) closely and ferociously>>63251101That can very well work
>>63251004>>63251031These guys are tech marines, so they sorta default to red.
>>63251153Iron Hands are black and they are tech af.
Rolled 2, 2 = 4 (2d6)>>63250968
>>63251163Anon, techmarines are red
>>63251184>every marine is a techmarine
>>63251163Yeah but they don’t have Tech Marines they’ve got Iron Fathers who are Tech Chaplin’s. So they just put them in black to remind everybody they’re not just back claw wearing Tech heads but also spiritual advisors.
>>63251184well codex complaint chapters have them red, though since ours doesn't follow the codex as much when compared to others, exceptions like a different color scheme are acceptable.
>>63251210Probably different colors depending on specialization (Bionics, Vehicles, Reactors etc.)>>63251183AgnaticOnly males are eligible for succession; if no suitable males exist in the current set of inheritors (children, siblings, etc), go to the next eligible set of inheritors. Only go to females if every male that could theoretically inherit is dead, in which case you start over with the first set of inheritors. "No GiRls Allowed!"
So would these guys get lot's of Dreads? Given how crippled they are and maybe some combat Servitors.
also we can say the reason why this chapter is so low on marines was due to a sudden eldar attack which is one of the reasons the forge master decided to lead a strike force against the craftworld
>>63251286They’d definitely have an armored division that consists of contemp dreads since their an M.32 successor.
>>63251307I like that idea. An Eye for an Eye and all, was it with KKVs? I wonder how the assault was taken?>>63251323They're pretty rare by modern times, maybe they're reserved for venerable elders and they have a Leviathan locked away somewhere?
>>63251349Maybe the master of the forge has been the same one for the entirety of the chapter's history, he's just interred in a leviathan
>>63251349Fair point I just like the look of the older dreads because they’re not a box with arms and legs. But yeah I could see them having a few impressive well maintained older and rarer dread models saved for heroic figures.
>>63251384Tempting but people would csay it reeks of Sue. He'd be fairly old but not from the beginning. >>63251389>>63251241Boys only clubhouse
>>63251418What if he's the equivalent of a mad old man chained up in a vault, they can't trust him in battle they just ask him advice on shit and try and decipher his rambling
>>63251479Ceremony 1d10 plzSo we've agreed a lot of Dreads? Because the image of dozens of Boxnaughts just stampeding over an enemy position is just too good to passAnd on occasion he somehow forges masterwork gear in his insane ramblings
>>63251479https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Alaric_the_MadBut in a dreadnought
>>63251523>>63251528Yeah, lets go with this, he's not as old as the chapter, still pretty old though, completely mad, now he just sits in his forge rambling and making weapons
>>63251528That's who I was thinking of when thinking of the old Dread. Something the Mad is a good title for him.There were 10 Blades each for a Company Captain, but with the devastation inflicted upon the Chapter all but (TBD) are locked away>>63251589Yep,
>>63251606Maybe they can crusade for their missing relic blades ala Salamanders.

>>63251645Sounds perfect, the Book must be filled.>>63251661>>63251651Rigid: Court proceedings are so boring that the Knights take to the field of battle just to keep their sanity.Divergent: Be it blood sacrifice or machine meditation, things are very different here.Which one? I like Divergent as it's not common in all honesty
OP here, I'm gonna get some sleep, keep the thread alive for me
>>63251688Divergent is cool with me.
>>63251705Cool>>63251692You got it boss.House Demeanour (d10)
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>63251756The ceremonies could’ve been more rigid but after the collapse of a nearby star they’re done with waiting around and wasting time.
I am totally going to play these guys.
>>63251805That sounds like an excuse they'd use to get out of the Rigid ceremonies.>Purity Above All - Mutants? *BLAM* No. They hate Mutants. Wonder why? There just too many mutants in these guys opinion?House Flaw 1d10>>63251830"WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DREADNOUGHTS? THEY JUST KEEP COMING!!!"
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>63251857Could be that the mutant population in the lower depths of the world is crazy large.
>>63251882>Local Cult: The practices of the House are weird and probably quite unsavory.Uh oh... that doesn't sound good I hope the Marines don't find out. And I can see that with the world, the knights and people have been fighting Mutant incursions for millennia so they don't have a good view of them at allFigure of Legend (d100)
>>63251921I mean their local cult could revolve around the idea that the Marines are the “Gods” of the world
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>63251921Forgot to roll
>>63251934*That* would raise hairs and eyes from the Inquisition alright.The Marines have been trying to quash such views subtly for as long as they've worked with the knights. Normally people seeing the Marines as Gods isn't all that weird depending on how the Marines run it, but given the power of the Knights it would be odd and out of line.
>>63251964I didn't catch your roll sorry>Just a regular Knight A regular Joe knight1d00 for his Deed

He probably just killed so many they gave up, no fancy maneuvering/logistical prowess here.Domain size, this will also go for the Marines since the Knights pretty much worship and defer to them 1d10
Rolled 16 (1d100)rollin~~
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>63252066
>>63252162>Tiny, just the Homeworld/System Huh, given how old the Marines are this is odd but not unlikely. Too much territory would attract attention by the Ordo Astartes.We know the planet and rule, technically subservient to the MarinesHouse Hierarchy (d10)
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>63252199All the better for the marines they wouldn’t be too much help in defending a larger amount of territory.
>>63252221Yeah they're too ravaged as is nowadays. In the past it was fine but they've been pretty much reduced to patrolling with a company or two around the subsector.>Flexible Now is not the time for strict hierarchies or frivolities we need to be flexibleCombat doctrine (d10)
what type of culture should the marine have
>>63252275Not ure. Never truly been a fan of Not! Culture marines though some are great. Il ike the RG way: subtle influences that aren't in your face like some /tg/ marines, the Emperor's Nightmares are a good example of this
>>63252275I think the mentality most marines in the chapter have is a “Do the ends justify the means” because their so willing to push themselves past their own breaking points. They’re always rationalizing why they have to push themselves so hard because for each marine a regular chapter has they need to be twice as good. They need to fight twice as good as the best champion from any other chapter and need to craft power swords and armor that’s twice as good as the best from other chapters.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>63252268
>>63252362They really sound like someone mixed IW, IH and UM together to create an incredibly logical/rational Marine force. Maybe too well... I bet Cawl is behind this!!>>63252391Shock and Awe Just like the marines.Preferred Knight variant (d100)
>>63252311>>63252362perhaps we can base them off of one of the older Chinese dynasties
>>63252472Which one? There are a bunch of them
>>63252507Here's an example, but I think it's missing a coupleThe Marines and Knights rule side by side/subserviently and maintain a Feudal (Though advanced in actuality) world with a flexible yet strict and efficient bureaucracy.
So we going with Ancient Chinese Dwarf Marines? Because such an image is great.
Now for the name: how about the Heavenly Iron Soldiers which is translated from the local tongue? Not sure on the 'Proper' name yet. The replacing body with machine really reminds me of the tales of Chinese alchemists creating concoctions of mercury for the Emperor to imbibe and immortality. And the Dreads could have a slight terracotta theme given them being near dead warriors
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>63252420Since no one else will
>>63252877>Knight Gallant This is giving me deja vu, but why?So they really like getting close and personal. Maybe a special Knight called 'Red Steed' or somesuch? It's regarded as one of the most ferocious Knights the House has but is too good to be locked away. Only the greatest warrior of his generation can hope to mount it.
>>63252472>>63252593>>63252693>>63252758I like these ideas
Anyone here? Pretty quiet.Specialty restrictions 1d100Now for a locationThe Mausoleum of the FallenThe traditional resting place for the Chapter's Fallen brethren.

So he Chinese Dwarf Marines and Knight friends rule over a number of under cities across the planet? Each one a metropolis with hundreds of thousands, millions in the case of the capital and Forbidden City where the Marines live. People are born, live and die without ever seeing the natural sun due to the airless terrain of the world. Maybe it's actually a moon instead of a planet?
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>63253531That’s why they worship the marines they’re the angels of the Machine god.
>>63253670Misread the number>Nominal: The House can field several Strongholds of Knights, enough to defend its fiefdoms and fulfill its obligations to the Imperium and Mechanicus Either they had reserves to call upon after the Eldar attack or they managed to skirt by unscathed. Makes the power dynamics between the two more odd now adaysWho are the House's enemies?(d100) Or not?
>>63253654>monastery being called the forbid city or some variation of itNice idea, also would be a good idea for the marines (at least the higher up ones) to also be philosophers due to how much the dynastic period pressured its leaders to conform to those types of thinking
>>63253801That really works with them being Ultra descendants. Many at first wouldn't think so, but they are really into bueracracy and efficieny like their fore brothers. Everything runs smoothly like a well oiled machine. Crime and interests are low to incentivize trade/business. Infrastructure is a big thing, plumbing always works, heating and air are properly maintained with Tech marines being a common sight in mainting those things
>>63253866Well at least for the monastery, with the chapter being distant rules they would mostly rely on the night houses and keep away from most mortals and may even view them as barbarians. The chapter might even install a 40k version of the Mandate of Heaven to keep things running smoothly and for recruits to keep on coming.
>>63253866Going off of the crime part, they are big into 'Bots on the Ground' where law enforcement are always around and walk among the populace, both in plain view and plain clothes among them. There are even the occasional Marine that goes along designated paths to reinforce order and civility. Punishment is swift and effective. Those that perform misdemeanors are put into terrible jails to dissuade future crime. Those too difficult to deal with are sent to nearby Prisons, and the irredeemable are executed sometimes on the spot.>>63253901That works the bureaucracy they set up was to keep themselves from interacting much with the world but these days they are less active and need to build up their numbers again. I need to shower so back in a bit
As much as I love the orient, i prefer the original idea we had prior to the introduction of said ideas.
>>63253978I/We haven't forgotten. It should be a more subtle flavoring than ripped wholesale, the Bureaucracy/Mandate of Heaven and the like are just to give them some influence
Well it was fun, Good night everyone. Hopefully this thread will survive till morning. But I won't be posting for much the day due to work.

>>63254360>The Dark Eldar (alternatively, you may select a particular Kabal or leader). The edgy Eldar.That makes it more interesting than another Craftworld. But now I go to sleep. See ya if anyone want's to save this thread go ahead.
>>63254360To >>63253752> The Dark Eldar Marines fucked up Craftworld Eldar our knight house hates the dark Eldar. I think that the Knights being the meditators for They Of Stone is cool. Working on trying to get a name going for our marines.

>>63255231Interesting Anyone got chapter name ideas?
>>63255696I can't sleep but fuck that's a good one. I really dig it, it's got that Heaven theme going on.
>space marine chapter agents recognize potential chapter serfs to be artificers or assistants from the local populace.
>>63255764Not exactly sure what that pic conveys.They probably do have agents keeping an eye on the planet. They watch *Everything* to report for their masters
>>63255764I like this
>>63255788The pic conveys the brainblast i had thinking it up.
>>63255764>How goes the watch/>Pretty good. There is this one boy who shows great promise in scripture, if he passes he's liable to be a Chaplain in a few centuries. He ousted his Grandfather as a Chaos Worshipper. Which we have to deal with my Lord. This is the third Chaos sighting this year and it is only 2 months in.

>>63255465The Mason Order
>>63255992The Star Dragons really meshes to me. Dragons typically are the pinnacle/apex of mythology and have dominion over all under heaven. Stars implies they spread the Emperor's Light over the Cosmos.
>>63256063Encroachng on Salamander territory anon, moreso than normal. Now I have to sleep
>>63256107And star dragon doesnt?Seems too fantastical desu
>>63256137The Dwellers The Cavern KingsAnything?
>>63255879I like this as well
>>63255992Mason order isn’t bad I think something denoting either their love for crafting or their dwelling.
>>63256319Thats what im doing. Im gonna make a prototype tomorrow after work and post in the next chapter creator thread.I got some I Fist shoulders i can use. Ill make it a bone fist on bronze armor.
Just read thru the thread. Not really caring for the chinese parts outside of stuff like the mandate of heaven. How does the Charred Immortals sound? With the cybernetics and dark bronze armor a soot effect on the extremities and mouthpiece of the helmet makes for a bold look.
>>63256956I was gonna go Iron Armor and Corvus Armor helms.
>>63256977Interesting. Iron goes great with cybernetics, see horus heresy iron hands, but why corvus helm? Don't get me wrong I love corvus, but why not go full one or the other?
>>63257134Plenty of knightly looking helmets in the space knight faction. Now I only wish we had a good frogmouth helm for space marines...
>>63251921What if the local cult worships the marines directly as gods instead of angles to the big E
>>63256956I know there is a chapter name generator in one of the Deathwatch role playing books, we can maybe use that?
>>63247763Anyone have a link to the Chaos shit?
>>63257279>https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Chaos_Space_Marine_Warband_Creation_TablesThere is also this if we want to go more in detail on the planet>https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Planet_generator
>>63257218That’d be pretty heretical but it is untraditional cult. >>63256956Charred Immortals sounds pretty cool for them.
As far as the overall mentality of the chapter goes, it does seem that while they're normally perfectionists, they clearly place their duties above their passion for craftsmanship. In this time of crisis and loss there's no time to wait around, they have work to do! So they lop off limbs and shove mechanical supports in when healing would be impossible or take far too long.I feel like the main difference between the attitude these guys have towards cybernetics and the attitude that, say, the Mechanicus or the Iron Hands have is that those two do it because, well, the Flesh is Weak. That Steel is a better, stronger way to go. While I get the impression that these guys, whose name we should really settle on because "Star Dragons" sounds pretty damn generic, are very much a "...but the Spirit is Willing" second half of the "Flesh is Weak" thing, if that makes any sense. They slapped on the tech parts because their duties needed fulfilling, but their bodies weren't up to the task. Not out of any hatred for squishy bits. Does that make any sense?
>>63258297As the suggester, I'm sticking with Charred Immortals. Agreed on their use of bionics. Reminded me of this wallpaper
>>63258345How about Bronze Souls?
>>63258345I propose Iron Dragons
>>63258345could the chapter have been renamed after their humbling, thus the "Charred"? maybe they were something pompous like "Gleaming Immortals" beforehand
>>63258345>>63258297>>63259603Is everyone in accordance with Charred Immortals. I've been swayed.
>>63259715I prefer this one >>63259278The Dragon theme was cool.
>>63259888I'd like Dragons myself but I'll be at work with pretty much no computer time. So see ya around 5ish
>>63257301I’m up for using the planet generator to flesh out our home world. But we might need to put the type of planet and tech level ourselves by the default rather then rolling for it

Landed like one, too. That... last one was probably not intended. It resulted in our Interrogator getting squished because he was too busy being handsy with the nun-girl to properly fasten his seatbelt. Oh, the nun-girl's name is Elaine, by the way. I think she's sulking behind the meteor-drop pod behind us - that or washing off the Interrogator's blood. I think she's nice.

The air looks nasty, almost reminds me of that time we were in the underhive. Apparently the atmosphere is unbreathable for normal humans, or as Pete says, "Inferior flesh-bags", so we've suited up in one of those really cool suits that let us breath in space. They cling to the skin a little too much, but the Interrogator said it was for dramatic effect.We haven't done much since landing, since Elaine insisted we dig a grave for the Interrogator... well, what's left of him. Jorj - that's our weapon specialist, by the way, he's really buff - wanted us to find one of those underground habitats that the locals are supposed to live in by evening, but it looks like that won't be happening. Jorj left to scout around I think, so Pete and I are stacking up our supplies and making a base camp. We'll try to head into those habitats tomorrow, see why the Interrogator was so eager to check out these "potentially renegade Adeptus Astartes scions of the Ultramarines and their pet Knight House".

Charred Immortals doesn't sound like a Space Marine Chapter to me. Maybe that's a point in the name's favour as it stands out. Perhaps something simpler and less grandiose. "The Unbroken" perhaps.
>>63260766The Unbroken sounds actually good, they could’ve been called something before but after the sundering of their chapter they wanted to remind themselves that they stand.
OP here, I'm a fan of the chinese aesthetic, I feel like we should do as >>63257301 said and roll up either the chaos warband or the planet in more detail, and I to whoever suggested it I like the idea of the knights worshipping the marines as some kind of godlike beings
>>63261662>>63261651We could go with both. In the wake of our near destruction we decided to change name and colors to signify our rebirth through war.
>>63261675Yeah, I like the idea that their defeat has visibly affected them
>>63261708Yep, I wonder if the Marines have a few Knights modified as Dreads holed up somewhere as a just in case insurance policy? That'd be a great LOW for them
>>63261765>Instead of interring their honoured battle-brothers who cannot be healed into dreadnoughts, the Chapter wires them up with Imperial Knight suits
>>63261765Well if the knights worship them, I'm sure they'd give up some of their armours.
>>63261815IIRC Knights are fluffed as being relatively easy to produce, so if we're very techmarine-focused it isn't impossible for us to produce our own
>>63261806But rarely since such a thing would get undue attention on them>>63261815I think they would

>>63262650I think a fun idea would be for them to have the belief battle is glory and for them to be over strength. Therefore our marines have something to be a bit bitter about before this chapters fall.
>>63262896So they're providing a stark contrast to our chinese blacksmith marines? On that topic, have we decided on a name yet?

Idea. Prior to their setback they were the Gleaming Immortals, after which they changed to Charred Immortals. The elite (1st comp, honor guard, dreads) are referred to as the ___ Dragons, and marines now refer to each other as reforged rather then brother to denote the change in demeanor. Thoughts?
>>63263431Siege and AttritionThat's an interesting doctrine maybe it was in response to the Reforged/Charred Dragons being underground?Equipment 1d100
>>63263464I really like that idea. Given their devastated ranks it would make interactions between the remaining Marines closer
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>63263499>>63263464I feel like 1st company should be The Charred Immortals And the chapter as a whole should be The Reforged. The Charred Dragons is the name of twin thunder hawks that’ve been with the chapter since the earliest days.
>>63263625Unholy WargearMost definitely gifted to them by the "Emperor"Status 1d10
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>63263741Fun maybe they’ve got bolt shells that cause frenzy in targets that get hit by it.
>>63263761Bolts that mutate whatever they hitSlightly understrengthWhat happened?1d10
>>63263625Wait, we have special thunderhawks? Charred dragons might be better for our dreads. "We were once as dragons" has a nice ring to it. Reminds me of... Korea? the myth of how a goddess and dragon gave birth to mankind.The Reforged, formerly *redacted*, Known for their exceptional techmarines and crafting capabilities. Feared for their slumbering dragons and charred immortals more machine then man.
>>63263785Bolts infused with Daemons that seek out targetsSwords that set things on fireTheir gear looks more like it's "Off" compared to regular CSM gear. It looks like normal Marine gear but subtly "Off" They're just spread very thin for some reason
>>63252275They raided a craft world right? I like the idea of them having super pure Gene seed but pushing the line in terms of tech heresy. Meaning they are aware of their long deep seated heritage and are proud of it, but also use it as a mask of sorts for their real shenanigans. Like taking tech from a craft world and bringing it deep underground to experiment on, beyond reach of the eyes of the mechanicum.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>63263870Not really special Thunderhawks just Thunderhawks that have been with the chapter since it’s inception. We do have what I will call Heavens Hammer Drop pods which are drop pods with drill attachments launched out of an Artillery platform that both transport and devastate enemy vehicles and fortifications.>>63263785
>>63263915That’s pretty good
>>63261675They can be called unbroken in the same way the Dark Angels are the unforgiven
>>63262297>Allies: The Astral KnightsF
>>63255992Seconding. I enjoy knightly orders.
>>63264110FThey shall be remembered, there is a majestic Fresco within the Forbidden City over the grand dining hall that depicts their last stand and sacrifice and a representative brother is a part of the honor guard at their monument
>>63264154A good battle for them to have would be to defend the shrine as its being sieged by some defilers. Xenos pirates would be neat.
Let’s do this right 1) Charred Immortals2) Charred Dragons 3) The Unbroken 4) The Reforged 5) The Mason Order 6) The Unbroken Order or The Reforged Order.Vote for a name.

>>63264480Idk where i am going to find this many bionic bits for space marines.
>>63264513Likely bitz and Bob's boxes
>>63264573Are there a lot of different types or only a few?
>>63264323I like the idea presented here so if everyone’s cool with it we’re going with The Reforged for the chapter name.>>63264437We don’t need to roll for enemies since we already know it’s The Reforged.
>>63264612With that settled should the next thread be soon or maybe tomorrow?
>>63264656First we should finish this thread by compiling The Knights House info as well as the CSM info so it’s easier to reference.

>>63264656As for when the next thread should be if the chapter has generated enough interest it could be two hours from now or just tomorrow so OP can see how far we’ve gotten with a little summary of everything.
>>63265352Oriental dragon holding a hammer rampant iron and bronze
