    Last thread, we got a ton of shit done, but the work isn't over yet!
    We still need a finalized version of the chapter badge and some work done on the wiki (the addition of subsector Yamato and such).
    More fluff ideas would also be appreciated. Will you answer the Emperor's call? Banzai!!

    >> Anonymous 04/22/11(Fri)15:38 No.14682059
    We actually went through a bunch of color scheme involving red. It's not supposed to be Japan as much as it is samurai-era Japan. We wanted to make a color scheme that reflected samurai armor and tons upon tons of historical suits of armor were looked to for inspiration. We found that black or dark blue armor with gold lace were extremely popular, so we went with that. The chapter badge is red and white, though.

    Funny enough, the idea sprang from a weeaboo hate thread.
    However, the majority of the fluff has been inspired by Japanese history rather than pop culture. The think the only anime reference made thus far is Battle Barge Yamato.
    >> The God-Emperor of Mankind 04/22/11(Fri)15:43 No.14682092

    Yamato is a nice name, reminds me of the Battlecruiser special ability from starcraft.

    And I like this Rising Sons idea more than the Emperor's children.

    I might try to contribute but i'll wait to see how things progress so i can have a nice base to work with.

    And please lets not have these guys use Power Katana's or some shit...

    Think of it this way

    A chainsword will always be MORE usefull in any given situation than a power katana.

    A power sword is much more durable and stronger than a power katana.

    Why would a chapter pick looks over efficiency?

    What makes a power sword more durable than a power katana? You realize that we're talking about Warhammer 40,000, right? Aesthetics ALWAYS take priority over practicality! The only difference between a power sword and a power katana is the shape! That's it. There's no issue of durability or practicality.

    They're just special ways of saying power swords and power glaives. They're just shaped slightly differently. Other chapters do this, too.

    What the fuck is a "normal" sword? Is it a British 1796LC? A Victorian fencing sabre? A Swedish m/1761 pallasch? The Munich longsword? The Conyers falchion? A khopesh? A gladius? A claidhem mor? The Wallace Collection A636 rapier?

    Long story short, it isn't just because you posted a Chinese polearm while talking about naginata that we can tell you don't really know jack shit about swords and how they are used. So kindly stop blabbering about whatever stereotypes it is you have picked up and treat as universal truths.

    If you actually want to learn, hang around over at www.myarmoury.com, www.swordforum.com, www.nihontomessageboard.com and http://www.armsandarmourforum.com/forum/ for half a decade or so. Combined with a few good books and some general poking around that'll give you a decent basis. Oh, and make sure you get to handle some real swords, old originals or at the very least high end replicas. Odd are it'll be quite an eye-opener in regards to the variation that's out there.

    Actually colors weren't according to clan. Often individual samurai had different colors for their armor (although there have been instances of daimyo mandating a unified color).
    I already told you. We went through a ton of suits and found that dark blue and black with gold trim was common.
    How did this happen? We go 3 threads of smooth sailing and suddenly, new people are trying to jump in and bitch and moan about every goddamn feature we agreed on 2 threads ago.

    This is the shape of a naginata. Note the similarity to a katana blade. Naginata's are somewhat different from many other pole weapons because their blade is essentially a full on sword blade with a tang.

    Which is kinda odd here, since last I looked your average power sword was a single-edged, single-handed sword with a D-guard.


    This makes it all fit even worse, given that longswords are only a small subsection of the medieval European cruciforms swords, and many longswords also manage to be post-medieval.

    And why should that specific sword type be the norm, did John Clements get elected world president or something?

    Basically, people who aren't up to date on historical weapons shouldn't try to use "but in reality" as an argument when designing space marine power swords (and those whoa re up to date will probably know better than to try it themselves). At best it just looks silly, at worst it propagates any number of myths.

    Lemme think. Perhaps the Van Der Graffenhook trade dynasty settle in Yamato after uh... let's see here. Perhaps the dynasty found was so enamoured with the sector and it's eccentricities that he moved the entire dynasty's operations there, setting up shop on a hive world. Because there has to be a hive world in this subsector (that's one half GitS, one third Cyborg 009, and fill in the rest with Snow Crash or something else).

    Anyway, the Van Der Graffenhooks maintain headquarters on a star fortress orbiting that hive world (to be named by someone infinitely more creative then me). They bring in exotic goods from the rest of the Imperium through the mighty trade fleet and export the various curiosities you find in the Yamato sector.

I'm thinking that their star fortress, while the headquarters of the dynasty, they probably have a homeworld outside of the sector that they prefer to recruit from, but I'm thinking over the centuries, more and more Yamato natives have found a position in the merchant fleet.

    Also, they probably never provided anyone to the Rising Sons, at least from the main family, incase something terrible happens, the warrant doesn't pass to a marine chapter.

    Wow.... Lots of hate n stuff in the early bits....

    My thoughts
    Color scheme: Kind of bland in my opinion. I get that we want to go with historical colors, but it just seems...meh. I'd add a bit more color personally. Maybe make the torso red. I'll try my hand at it a little later.

    Weapons: Seeing how (other than the Katana/bow) there were really no "Set" weapons that a samurai must absolutely have, I'd say we just say they have CqC weapons and let the individual modellers sort it out.
    Also: Bolters on pole arms seems like a neat idea. I support

    Fluff: Nice to see that my suggestions (Kyotoro and Otera) made it in there.

    The blue is okay its meant to be deep, the black brownish thing on the shoulders... its not really contrasting the blue as it should. Id suggest a brownish gold or light grey.

    Not very samurai-ish but......

    And I think they should have power katanas. Ultramarines have gladius, Wolves use axes, Scars use scimitars.

    Maybe we can have the Rising Sons getting into a small conflict with the White Scars? To represent the Mongolian invasions of Japan, only to have a warp storm come out of nowhere in the middle of the Scars fleet? (Which did actually happen, when the Mongolians were trying to invade Japan, a typhoon came out of nowhere. It happened two times I believe...)

    Well it's been thousands of years since the original colonists of Sekai were sent back to the stone-age, worked their way up, and invented the katana, and in the future they say "Hey, this works for us." So the Rising Sons decide to turn it into their own style of power weapon.

    We already have naginatas confirmed. In fact, the Chaplains exclusively use them. No one said they could only use katanas. Also, these will be space marine-sized katanas, so they would be considerably larger and thicker. We've already had some concept art of the marine with katanas and we've had no complaints so far.

    Just for handy reference, here is a chart with the components of historical o-yoroi ("great armour") listed, so you can actually make accurate references to components you want to add on, rather than trying to describe it.

    How's this for a bit more of Rising Sons history?

    In the mid 41st millennium, a terrible Orkish Waaagh! descended upon the sector which the Yamato subsector is a part of, devastating much of the sector and crippling its economy. The inefficient bureaucracy of the Administratum delayed any deployment to aide the planetary defense forces forced to face the green tide. This vulgar display of power attracted the attention of various other Ork warbands, causing the already massive Waaagh! to swell to unfathomable size.
    No Imperial force seemed to be capable of hindering it even slightly. At last, the Waaagh! made it to Subsector Yamato, where Battlefleet Yamato and the Rising Sons navy clashed with the Waaagh!'s vanguard fleet. Casualties on both sides were massive, but they were ultimately ordered by the Shogun to fall back to Sekai to make their final stand.
    Just as the Orkish fleet cast its terrible shadow over the surface of Sekai, a warp storm erupted and destroyed the entire main fleet! The Waaagh! was dealt a fatal blow by this freak warp storm and soon dissolved into scattered warbands to be cleaned up in the aftermath.
    The denizens of Subsector Yamato saw this warp storm as proof of the Emperor's favor towards them.

    The Rising Sons are notorious among the many chapters of Astartes for their practice of 'requisitioning' young women from any planet upon which they make landfall. Stripped of all belongings, these so-called comfort women are given minimal indoctrination to their new lives as sex slaves to their Space Marine masters, the constant rapes and beatings described as being necessary sacrifices for the glory of the Emperor.

    Each comfort woman may be expected to service dozen or even hundreds of Space Marines, especially since the harshness and privation of their duties causes a high mortality rate. Months may go by before the Rising Sons deploy to a planet capable of supplying fresh requisitions; and in that time the number of surviving comfort women dwindles rapidly.

    So I'm the guy that suggested the uh... Rogue Trader based off the dutch. Still don't have much, but would a Rogue Trader dynasty make for a good ally to a Space Marine chapter, either way?

    Either way, there's some spin that could be done on this, making them like the dutch were in Nagasaki (hence the star fortress above a hive world) and having most dynasty members come from outside Yamato (but perhaps some lord on some world, managed to marry into the Dynasty on the hopes that perhaps he might gain some indepence).

    In fact, that might be interesting thing for third sons of noble families in Yamato to joing the Van Der Graffenhook trade fleets. They get to leave the sector and they don't have to follow the customs, especially if they were rebellious.

    That's the unfortunate bit. I don't have much. I don't have a name for the hive world (just that it's all cyberpunk and japanese), nor for the fortress.

    Though I do have the idea is that if you can make it to the Star Fortress, then perhaps you're beyond the law of your world, since you basically belong to the rogue trader dynasty, or something like that.

    It's just a spur of the moment idea. I mean, for the longest time the only foreign people allowed in Japan were the dutch, and only then in Nagasaki... I was thinking about maybe we could do something with that and put another large force, other then the Rising Sons.

    Could work. They seem a religious chapter so perhaps that and an Order of Sisters who look after the Shrine world they have. That's a good pair of allies to help add some fluff.

    Dutch Rogue Trader as one of the few groups allowed to trade with thier planets (In order to prevent chaos) and Miko Sisters on the shrine world as an ally.

    Didn't we decided against that, since that would probably put them in deep shit with the Administratum? Since they're in the same subsector, they'd probably work closely anyway.

    What, the ricepicker hats? Naw, they're straight outta WWII Japan.

    I would say they view most of the Dynasty as odd. They probably come from the various houses under the dynasty's umbrella from outside the subsector.

    They're different culturally and they're rogue traders. They're probably terribly eccentric.

    As for the citizens of the subsector proper that joins the Dynasty, probably viewed with carefully crafted and hidden disdain for abandoning their lords/fathers/what have you for the weirdoes with the weird shoes.

    Actually, Chaos would be a simple and effective reason to make them isolationist. Harder to get potential cultist if no one gets on planet besides the designated Dutch Rogue Trader. Sisters would also fit into that as they are goot at rooting out chaos.

    So the marines are paranoid as fuck about chaos, so they have a firmly isolationist policythat is only broken for a Trusted Rogue Trader Dysnasty. In addition You have the not-Kuni Witchhunter Sisters who hunt down any rumour of chaos worship.

    Kuni Witch Hunter Sisters as allies? That's got my vote.


    No ignoring inv saves. That appears to be going the way of the Dodo in 5th ed. Not even Callidus Assasins get it anymore.

    So do we have a name for the Hive World that the Dynasty star fortress orbits.

    I'd like to think that one of the Houses that provides recruits to the Rising Sons might be the noble house that's trying to merge with the Dynasty, but uh... I might be incorrect... I don't remember which world they're from and I don't recall if they're just houses or if they're the actual companies...
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)04:09 No.14701636

    Makes more sence than Mikos. Sisters are supposed to already act like them, so it fits pretty well. Sisters that act more independently than most, with single people doing investigations and hunting down Witches and Chaos cults.
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)04:22 No.14701732

    Agreeing with >>14701585 don't have it ignore inv saves, they seem to be moving away from it and the only things that ever did it were C'tan phase weapons. Perhaps make them reroll sucessful ones? That has precedent with the Swarmlord.

    Also I think he has way too many special rules. He don't need counterattack or true grit.

    A constant 2+ in cc or in cover is pretty insane concidering how easy it is to get a cover save these days. I'd personally replace that with an Iron Halo.

    To be fair I haven't read the entire thread, but my solution to the POWER KATANA thing is have the Space Marines all carry Ceremonial katanas, and use POWER NAGINATA

    Which would be way cooler.
    >> Squid !!6aBsnrxDu7+ 04/24/11(Sun)04:50 No.14701959
    I think that we were shying away from anything too Japanese, The insignia, organization and name do a fair job of establishing that they are samurai marines to outsiders without hammering it in. That being said I also like the white but not nearly as much as the blue and gold trim. Though were not debating color scheme anymore because the blue has won the popular vote.
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)04:51 No.14701965

    Agreed, it's a nice one. The simpler than some but it looks more Samurai in my opinion.
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)04:55 No.14701992

    Aye Aye. That one's nice too.

    Also tossing in another vote for the Witch Hunter Sisters. Someone is needed to keep people from falling to the Taint of Chaos and they fit with the spiritual feel the chapter has.

    Why can't he join squads? Maybe have him be able to join squads and give any he joins infiltrate instead of having him be a jump pack trooper without a jump pack.

    Also, give that ranged weapon some AP. STR3 ap- is pretty useless. Perhaps AP3 so he can kill a marine or two.
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)05:06 No.14702047
    Oh also the ceremonial aspect could easily be built up. They could take oaths on the swords, or something else. It would be really awesome to include some kind of fluff behind the swords like that.
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)05:08 No.14702061

    I derped, change jumpack to deepstrike and I forgot to put ap 3 on the ranged weapon.

    He can't join squads because according to his nonexistent fluff he operates sort of like an eversor, minus the suicidal tendencies.
    >> Anonymous 04/24/11(Sun)05:10 No.14702076

    Ok, that makes a lot more sence. Maybe give it the same method of appearace of marbo. Means he'll explode less and he is pretty damn fragile out of melee since he can't take a squad.

    There was no solution to the power katana as there was no problem aside from some whiners who just found out about the Rising Sons.
    Officers with power swords will have those swords shaped like katanas. There's nothing special about them other than their shape (similar to how Space Wolves get viking-like power axes and White Scars get power scimitars). Not all Rising Sons carry a power katana. Their basic close-combat weapon is a wakazashi, used to the same effect as a space marine combat knife or Ultramarine gladius.
