    It's appropriate for the setting, considering how Japan had a God-Emperor, a xenophobic and genocidal empire and a caste of honor-obsessed warriors who comprised a feudal system.

    Their home planet is based on the sengoku period. Marines are recruited from each houses. This way the Chapter is fill with different tactics. Each company is filled with members of one house or something.

    But I've never actually met a flamboyant weeaboo over the age of 14, and teenagers are annoying as fuck anyways.

    I HAVE however met some middle aged neckbeards who really take the anti-weeaboo thing way too far.

    Worked with a guy like that. Loved comics, wouldn't touch manga because "comics should be about superheroes", Loved 2000 AD comics because "the art is soooo compelling", and also disdained "movies" and only watched "films"

    Seriously listened to the guy bitch about how awful Transformers was for an hour. Like he expected some compelling epic about the struggle of a robotic master race from beyond the stars.

    I told him "I paid $10 to see robots beat the crap out of each other". He told me "I'm what's wrong with this world."

    I've been reading Savage Scars and it mentions how the main character thinks the Tau fight honorably even though they're dirty xenos. So they do regard honor pretty highly. Also you could say in the background for them that their home world was a recruiting world for the White Scars and during one of the foundings the Scars just let them break off and form their own chapter.

    I'd love a Samurai-themed Imperial Guard regiment, but they'd need to use solid ammunition or something, so they have a reason to use their swords when they run out of Ammo.

    Thousands of Guardsmen brandishing swords charging a Tau gunline and hacking them to bits despite heavy losses, thanks to the warrior code of their home planet equating surrender or retreat as worse than death.

    I hate to say it but the space wolves dex would be fucking GREAT for this chapter.

    Wolf Guard would represent the various 1st company clansmen joining various squads and such and would justify why the wolf guard would always have such drastically differing gear.

    The basic grey hunter would also make for a great samurai-esque profile seeing as samurai are famed (somewhat stereotypically but w/e) for using bows before melee combat ensued.

    Thunderwolves could be the cavalry element? (or just not use them at all w/e tg thinks would work)

    And the bloodclaws could be the kamikaze soldiers hellbent on getting their honour back.

    Likewise the lone wolf could be a 1st company clansmen doing the same thing (but more epicly seeing as he has fallen so far from grace).

    Fluffwise would this chapter command the loyalty of a minor guard regiment? (japanese guardsmen) Seeing as this kind of society would have plenty of ppl willing to fight but unable to get into the much sought after rank of astarte, I could see them having an "ashigaru" aspect to their overall force.

    To all the people saying dragonoughts are better than sumonoughts: Imagine being on a battlefield and seeing a large dragon's head, shooting burst of what appears to be fire. This is not scary to a group of battle hardened Chaos Space Marines which see warp beasts all the time.

    Imagine, instead, seeing a dreadnought charge into your Khorne possessed raging Chaos dreadnought. You think this enemy dreadnought to be foolish, and idiotic. You see your Chaos dreadnought grapped, and shoulder thrown into your own troops, with the mechanised scream of "BANZAI!" echoing through the battlefield.

    Very successfully

    According to history, Date not only survived all the bullshit that went down, but he managed to schmooze both Hideyoshi and Ieyasu - even after basically giving both of them the finger on seperate occasions - and was awarded the Sendai province, which became incredibly successful mostly because he was open to trade from the West despite nominally supporting Ieyasu's ban on Christian practice. He wrote a letter to the pope and sent a fairly large delegation to the Vatican in the interest of setting up trade, and he basically trolled everyone, ever, hard. He was notorious for his reckless approach to battle, as well, but successful despite it.

    Also, he either cut out his own eye or had a servant do it for him with a knife because it was hopelessly infected. At like, age 7.

    And he wasn't even supposed to inherit the clan. His mother favored another brother on account of that brother had two eyes, but Masamune wasn't going to put up with that shit.

    Could explain the White Scar origins really well actually. The local WW2 era japanese guard can't hold the shrine world due to their constant lack of soldiers (banzai charges and whatnot) so the white scars are tasked with protecting it and over time they just let those they assigned to protect it hundreds of years earlier form their own chapter.

    So instead of the Laurels, we have cresents present on the helms?

    How about for a color scheme we do a primarily black armor, gold shoulderpads maybe with a Rising Sun motif for the chapter symbol... just have each of the different companys have different stylized versions of it?

    Fuck I am tired...

    No offense to the Japanese, but "banzai" doesn't look too intimidating on paper.

    A better war cry might be something like "Ten thousand years!" or "Vivat Imperator!" They mean the same thing as banzai but are more intimidating.

    You know, it wouldn't have to be all sumo-noughts. They could easily be a specialized variant of their dreadnoughts, with only the most suicidally brave of their chapter given the honor of becoming one while still using more conventional dreadnoughts with less insane marines inside them.

    I seriously fucking approve of this thread. Samurai inspired Space Marine chapter. I also agree with the gentleman who suggest Space Wolves would be a better fit for them as well as the idea of them using the White Scars (another asian themed chapter) as their Geneseed.

    Due to the modernness of the weapons, I'd also highly recommend looking at how Japan fought during World War 2, where the old codes clashed with new technology and they had to strike a balance.

    I'm also all behind an IG regiment from the same planet, as 'Samurai' is a social class and only they can become Space Marines, everyone else who wants to be a warrior has to either prove themselves of join the IG. If only you could still play Allies, IG regiment from this planet, lead by a Space Marine 'Samurai' General...

    This Rising Sun guard would allow an interesting scenario; The Tau that are generally seen as the weeaboo wannabe-japs, would try to capture the guardsmen alive before they can disembowel themselves, reversing the stereotypical Murkan Guard - Jap Tau roles.

    Also, how about some sort of a kamikaze Penal regiment? I admit, honorable death by explosions would be closer to the original Imperial Army but still...the mental image of screaming guardsman being forced to a plane filled with explosives...grimdark.

    I propose that the Rising Sons battle-barges use macro cannon projectiles that are manned with a kamikaze volunteer that uses a small thruster to nudge the warhead in a more accurate direction. A lot of people want to die for the Emperor, here they get the chance to deliver a couple tons of explosive power to the enemy.

    One can point out that macro cannon rounds are accelerated to near lightspeed, and so anyone inside would be liquified soon after leaving the barrel. I guess that only adds to the grimdark of it all.

    I think...lightning strike would work best. Early in the war, Japan just overwhelmed the enemy with troops filled with faith in the God-Emperor.

    I just like the mental image of Space Marines charging with katanas.

    Shock and Awe is no good because it's about orbital bombardment. we don't like that

    The chapter was created by victoria lamb as part of white dwarf's 'Design a Chapter' competition. It was one of the winners/runners up of the competition and thus got immortalised in canon.
    She has a collection of well painted minatures on her site, though the emperor's shadows seem to have been taken down.

    Alright then. Lighting Strike it is. Roll a 1d100 for Solo Mode.

    I love you guys. If you haven't settled on a scheme yet, I'll just bump my original scheme right here: >>14631734 but I'm sure you guys will pick something badass.
    How's the chapter badge coming along? I'm thinking it should be an aquila in the style of a Samurai mon.

    White Scars should definitely be their base chapter. The Space Wolves geneseed wouldn't fit with a samurai chapter (wolfen and whatnot).

    We figured we would be useing the rising sun of old Japanese flags forthe chapter symbol.

    We also figured that >>14632818
    or >>14632384 would probably be best suited for the armor colors, since it would go better with the chapter symbol

    Here's another concept for a possible Rising Sons scheme. I took inspiration from the many yoroi suits I've seen with black armor and golden lace. The shoulders are white so the red rising sun badge can be displayed over it.

    I like that one a lot. Has there been any more work on them?

    Anyone decide if the chapter would use Chaplains or Librarians?
    >> Anonymous 04/18/11(Mon)18:22 No.14637906

    Chaplains: very Zen.

    Librarians: Yamabushi.

    Japanese Kanji is identical to chinese kanji, just the chinese invented it hence...

    Samurai were orginally cavalry warriors

    Chaplains should definitely be based on the Japanese warrior monks. They wear the basic black n skulls chaplain armor, but wrap their heads or helmets in a cowl and use power glaives (naginatas).

    So it fits well with the White Scars background.
    >> Anonymous 04/18/11(Mon)18:54 No.14638203
    The power swords/weapons should be the ones from the Grey Knights spru's... If you have seen them you would understand. They just have that look and feel to them.

    >>14637334 First Company, or something like it. Eyes are not red, which would fit... Maybe a little more red in other places.

    Maybe the other companys an amalgam of >>14632818 and >>14637334 ?

    I don't think every company should have its own special snowflake color scheme. We should agree on one.

    I can't be the only one who recognizes the Emperor's Shadows color scheme is the same as Hatsune Miku, right?
