    So much of the art is human / terra biome specific it would be rather difficult to make a new faction with the art as the motivation for the creation. If another faction arose, and the art could be applied to it with thematic congruity... that would be awesome. Until then...

    How about the world the chapter recruits from committed human sacrifices to the emperor? Maybe their psychers can only function when blood is spilled. They would be a successor chapter to the blood angels and would depict their primarch as a multicolored serpent or something. They would combat the influence of Khorn by only letting their powerful psychers handle sacrificial rites.

    The arrival of the primarch could be like the coming of Cortez to the Aztecs, prophesied to the exact date and such with a near exact description. Except the primarch's arrival wouldn't screw them over. He could have re-porpoused the blood rites to worshiping the Emperor to diminish taint. A chapter master or lone space marine would work just fine.

    To fit in with Aztec myths of shape changers the Eagle Knights would be thinner than the average marine with feather like hair and sharp facial features while the Jaguar Knights would have larger canines and yellowed eyes.

    They would have very good relations with the Space Wolves, having a sort of "friendship" with the chapter.

    Any name ideas? Maybe something in Nahautl? Feathered Serpents maybe? Their main colors could be blue, green and red. Their armor would have very orderly paint designs along with anointments from each individual's tribal regalia from their past life.

    They could have a hate on for Khorn, since he needlessly spills blood and wastes it. They would also prefer taking prisoners to sacrifice. Khornites their favorite.

    I also feel like one of those original content do not steal fags right now... Should we stat up the chapter for Deathwatch after we fluff out and paint scheme?

    Another idea: they could have an oddly high amount of psychers, possibly due to warp storms in a near by system that are just near enough to touch them but far enough away not to turn everything to shit.

    The hatred of the Blood God could go both ways as well, with Khorn's chosen picking out these guys first and cutting them down with rage beyond normality. Due to the common nature of their sacrifices and their hatred of Khorn, the few [name] that fall to chaos usually end up in the service of Tzneetch, due to his close appearance to their religious figures and the psychic powers he grants.

    Their priest kings (librarians) could show odd mutations such as feathers and serpentine fangs as well. This is overlooked by the inquisition since it's the side effect of a gene-seed mutation, not chaos.

    That's the name of Quetzalcoatl's war-god form (Aztec gods had many forms with distinct domains and personalities). He was killed by the sun after he tried to knock him out of the sky with an atl-atl. Since that god is stupid (IE he did stupid things and died for it) I think it would be a bad representation of the chapter, especially for those who know about Aztec religion.

    Space Wolves vs Blood Angels

    What codex would work best for this new army?

    On one hand, we have the blood lust of the Angels, with the chance to lose their sanity due to the blood lust. They also have the sanguinary priests.

    On the other, we have the space wolves; their thunderwolf cavalry would work great for Thunderlizard riders. Their Runepriests could work well for high priests.

    So, debate. which would work best?
