    174 KB Eyes of Mordred: Part 2 Land Terrestrial !FEZKlA6o6g 05/26/11(Thu)02:51 No.15055851  

    We are a successor chapter of the Doom Eagles and by proxy Ultramarines made in the 32nd Millennium. We were made to act against a counter against Eldar and Dark Eldar. We are renowned for our swordsmanship and being total bros. We have a defect that allows us to see in the dark, but makes it hard to see in daylight. We obey the Codex Astartes and specialize in Terror Tactics, as fitting our Esoteric Beliefs about fear. Our founding father was Mordred, a lowly tactical marine who devastated an Eldar Craftworld over many years before escaping. We live on an uninhabited and airless moon, with normal numbers bolstered by our fleet, thanks to our alliance with the Imperial Navy. Our greatest enemies are Dark Eldar, and our battlecry is "STARE INTO THE DARKNESS AND DESPAIR!"

    Things we need to work on:
    >Fluffing out their esoteric beliefs on fear

    Okay here is another vignette for ya. This is another chapter in the tale of Brother Percival:

    Initiate Percival waited. Only two more eyes to add to his collection before he became a full-fledged battle brother. However, his squad was devastated by the xeno forces. He was currently with the only other remaining squad member, Scout Sergeant Tristram, and some Devastator Marines waiting for reinforcements. A Hive Tyrant led his fellow Tyranids, charging at the remnants of the battleforce. Two hours remained until more Fifth Company troops came to assist their brothers. As he waited, he heard stomping footsteps. Peeking out from behind the cover he was hiding in, he noticed the Hive Tyrant walking towards him. The foul xeno must've heard the Marines! Quickly the Devastators set up their Heavy Bolter and shoot at the greater daemon, who responded with a blast of foul bio-plasma. Percival was knocked back, severely burnt, but his brothers weren't so lucky. He picked up the sniper rifle of Tristram. Those last two eyes had to be from something special. He jumped out of cover and jammed the sniper rifle into the roaring mouth of the Hive Tyrant, riddled with bullets but not yet dead. He pressed the trigger as fast as he could, before the Tyranid could recover from his surprise. The Hive Tyrant screamed and lunged at Percival with his scything talons, but he jumped out of the way, escaping with a scar on his face. Taking out a frag grenade, he threw it while running out of the way. After the dust settled, he examined the corpse of the Hive Tyrant and plucked out it's eyes, putting them in a vial. He quietly praised the Emperor for his luck.

    I was thinking more like the eye in the end of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUwM3dNt5BQ but with a crescent instead of a loveheart.

    Also I really don't like the coal/red color scheme, as it doesn't look really intimidating enough. In the past thread there was a black with red details one that looked better IMO. Only put it on the op because it was on the wiki and the other wasn't.

    Personally, I much prefer the coal and red colour scheme; I think the other one is more intimidating but looks worse over all.

    One anon suggested that some of the chapter use one and some use the other; would you be willing to make this the case? Perhaps first company use one, or a dedicated dark eldar hunting force, or the company which is tasked with protecting the area directly around the homeworld or something.

    Unlike most of the Eyes of Mordred, who are surprisingly noble under their frightening exterior, Gareth the Merciless is a complete psychopath. He is one of the greatest warriors of the chapter, yet is kept from any command position due to his cruelty. He is known as the 1001st, as to exploit a loophole in the Codex Astartes he is not counted among the Chapter's members. This is due to the fact he works best outside of a squad, as many battle-brothers claim. He wears the skeleton of a Chaos Lord on his Terminator Armor. and wields twin lightning claws. The rest of the Chapter don't like talking about him for obvious reasons, and in fact they try to keep him as much of a secret as possible from other chapters.

    Is this character okay with you guys?

    The Imperial Navy had been ambushed by the Dark Eldar in a vicious pincer-attack, wyches and warriors stalked the corridors and Guardsmen and other members of the Imperium were lined in a row with weapons aimed at their foreheads and shackled hands held behind their backs by the grinning Eldar.

    One of the men that had pissed his pants, nor shown any fear to the veteran Eldar warrior that stood in-front of the group with an alien pistol pointed at his forehead.

    The guardsman spat onto the ground, a glob of saliva dripping off the bladed foot of the Eldar Warrior as it looked down upon the human and there was a solid thud as the Guardsmen paid for his disrespect, spitting blood onto the floor and looking up with pure hatred to the Eldar as it prepared to shoot the Guardsmen before there was a loud crack as hand that held the pistol was severed with a powerful cleaving motion from a figure clad in red and black power Armour with an stylized eye symbol upon the helmet and a crackling chain-sword held between bloodstained fingers.

    The Warrior looked down at its hand, missing its most precious digits, screaming and reeling in pain as its comrades opened fire upon the figure who simply shrugged off the gunfire like it was a simple swarm of flies.

    The Guardsmen witnessed the bloodshed, dark Eldar screaming, crying and even being reduced to drug-fueled wrecks that weakly tried to stop the righteous judgement that was upon them.

    After what seemed like hours of bloodshed was a black hand covered in blood splatters was shoved in the Guardsmen eyesight, a super soldier offering the man a hand up and then releasing him from the cuffs, a bolt pistol being shoved into the nimble hands of the Guardsmen.

    "Who are you?" The Guardsmen asked.

    "We are the eyes of Mordred, are you ready to stare into the darkness?" The Space Marine replied.

    I think this scheme looks too similar to the raven guard; I know they don't always have red shoulder pad edgings but plenty of people play the third company and give them red edgings.

Although I would still like one of the companies to have the halved colour scheme, perhaps the company guarding the systems around the homeworld; could maybe call them the Shadow Watchers or some corny bullshit like that.

    I don't mind the squish being red on the mostly black sheme; i think it adds some colour. For the half and half scheme I was toying with the idea that they might ware black / coal grey robes - may help them remain hidden, but they could still show of their colours on parade. Just wear the robes for combat.

    After calling for aid, the PDF forces on Kaliv II were overjoyed to see reinforcements arrive in the form of the Eyes of Mordred chapter. The cheers of joy soon turned into shrieks of terror as the chapter began to maim, slaughter and kill all PDF forces and civilians alike. The rein of terror lasted for three days until the chapter suddenly withdrew from the world. The very next day the real Eyes of Mordred arrived at Kaliv II. After pacifying the terrified PDF reminants and removing the various gruesome scenes of terror left by the imposters, a single banner was found, impaling the planetary governers mutilated corpse. The no tattered flag was identical to the Eyes of Modred Banner bar one detail. The single eyes pupil was in the shape of the symbol of the dark gods. The flag was burned along with the eyeless, mutilated corpses of the PDF victims and civilians."

    Brother Captain Percival stood tall. The Guards defences had fallen and now it was left to him and his company to hold the traitors back until more Brothers could arrive, his ocular implants beheld the horde, once Battle Brothers of the Eyes of Mordred, now corrupted by the dark gods of chaos. The horde was silent, the leader strode forth, Agravain! There was no fear, he had bested his fear centuries ago. Agravain raised his power call to the air and displayed the relics Percival remembered oh too well. His eyes.

    "Fools of the mad chapter, prepare for darkness and despair eternal!"


    "Brothers!" Roared Percival, "We have faced our fears and never turned from the Emperors path! We shall show these cowards what true darkness and despair really is!"

    And as one voice did the battle brothers cry out,


    And the battle was begun.

    Initiate Agravain bounded through the haunted woodlands. His hallucinations had come and gone. He had stared his worst nightmares in the face and bested them, for the Emporer and for Mordred. He emerged from the edge of the tree line into the waiting company of the chaplains and librarians of the Eyes.

    "Well done Initate Agravain, you have overcome your fears and are ready for your trials."

    "Thank you my lords, I am honoured!"

    "Come initate, we have much to do, THE MASTER IS FALSE."

    "My lord?"

    "Your body must be baptised by the apothecaries, the first trial."

    Sergent Brangaine motioned in swift battle sign for his squad to move forward silently but swiftly. The damned traitors were storming the ruined walls of the garrison and so time was of the esscence. As they moved closer and closer towards the rear of the attacking traitors, Brangaine drew his mono-edged combat knife; the dull coloured grey blade reflected not a single speck of light. He dearly wanted to stab one of those swine in the head and take their eyes from them, but patience was needed. They must only strike when the time was right, when all hope seemed lost and the traitors would put down their guard. Squad Brangaine tensed themselves and silently prepared for the killing yet to come.

    Long story short, Agravain never bested his one and only fear. The fear of betrayal by Mordred. The whispers are constant and never ending.

    After coming in contact with chaos for the first time, this weakness was exploited and he slowly grew corrupted.

    Chapter Demeanor:

    Although they often spend much of their time of duty training, meditating on the 8 levels of fear and learning from the Codicium Mordred, when among members of the larger Imperium the Eyes of Mordred appear to be very noble and gregarious; they are not above using dark humour to lighten the mood. However, this easy camraderie is a front in order to hide some of the darker shames of the chapters past. Any who ask questions on that which they have no right will find themselves being swiftly diverted towards more suitable discourse and those who delve too deep often find themselves the victims of unfortunate accidents.

    Shadow, Brangaine silentley signaled to stop. Squad Araden moved into positon just ahead. He nodded subtley to Sergent Araden who signaled to advance. Squad Brangaine moved forwards, the roars of victory rang out from the traitors beyond the wall, now was the time to strike. Squad Araden moved to secure the rear as Brangaine signaled to his brothers to hold as he peered beyond the wall. Sure enough, the traitors were in celebration of their impending victory, dancing among the mutilated remains of a squad of eyeless battle brothers, they had no idea of the wraith about to bear down upon them. Brangaine began to signal for the squad to advance when he caught sight of a brother, strung upon hooks, eyeless but alive. Sergent Araden, along with Squad Araden.

    God, these Agravain guys sound like mary sues.

    Seeing the ravaged form of Araden, Sergent Brangaine could feel his rage building inside him. The urge to rip the eyes from the traitors heads was stronger than ever... in these times he would always try and follow the example of the master to find the true path. When Mordred was alone on the craftworld, surrounded on all sides by flithy xenos, he did not back down. He did not fear. He hid, he struck and then retreated into the dark in order to sow havoc. Braingaine saw what he must do now; he signled to his squad in quick battle sign, before unclipping 3 frag grenades from his belt, pulling the pins with his teeth and then lobbing them into the celebrating traitors. With that, his squad executed a swift crouching advance. He would have their eyes...

    Gareth tore his way through the traitor forces, laughing maniacally. One by one the traitor forces fell, until he was face to face with Agravain himself. "Come, brother, and join us. You would make a good follower of Khorne. Your slaughter shall glorify the dark gods!" said Agravain. Gareth replied "I serve none but the Emperor, traitor. I shall enjoy watching you suffer!" Thus the duel began. Gareth's armor was narrowly slashed by Agravain's sword, and Gareth responded by performing an uppercut with his Lightning Claws. The battle raged on for an hour, until Agravain was felled. Gareth tore off the Chaos Lord's armor and plucked out his eye. He reached down into him and tore out his skeleton. A trophy to remind all of the heresy within their ranks that they purged.

    Do they carry around a book about mordred (In a bit of writefagging I prelimary named some such item the Codicium Mordred).

    What else might they have?

    Also; cult of fear. And the whole dark eldar slaves thing

    I think I mentioned it earlier, but why not have their recruiting world be composed entirely of freed slaves?

    Also I think the idea of them having "a book on how to scare people shitless" sounds like a pretty cool idea.

    entirely free slaves? So they populate their world by bringing freed slaves there... sounds like a full time job

    That seems incredibly impractical. And besides, they aren't big enough douches to use their "FUCK EVERYONE IF A SINGLE PERSON HERESIES" tactic on traumatized slaves.

    I agree, it does sound impractical. I like the idea of them using dark eldar slaves, possibly ones they have captured in attacks on dark eldar ships however I don't think the recruiting world should be composed of them.

    Okay; no planet of free slaves.

    One of the chapter's traditions is a ritual fight where both participants are blindfolded. It is usually done to determine successorship and to settle feuds between battle-brothers. Gareth was shunned by the chapter due to accidentally killing his opponent in a duel between him and a fellow battle-brother who was angered with his ignoble behavior. He was only re-accepted into the chapter's ranks as the 1001st after he went on a ten year one-man crusade. In rare cases one may usurp the rank of one above you by having a special duel where the higher ranked marine wields a staff instead of being unarmed like usual. The chapter believes that if you are skilled enough to defeat a more experienced marine when he has an advantage, you are truly deserving of his place. Otherwise, they frown upon marines getting promoted too young.

    Gah! When the hell did you guys start a second thread? What did I miss? Have we decided on a color scheme yet?
    >> Shock 05/27/11(Fri)06:25 No.15068766



    We're going with either one from this picture here. Technically, the current one is the one on the left. But we've not decided on it yet, so it could be either. Or both.


    Sounds good to me. Sort of reminds me of Klingons.

    I vote for the one on the right then, but it could use a brighter shade of green on the eyes. The eyes are the only part that are actually suposed to be glowing, so they shoud be more neony.

    ...or we could still use the GLOW IN THE DARK version. That wold be fun to paint. Pic related; now 150% more GLOW IN THE DARK!

    Man, I'm tempted to write some vignettes about Gareth's exile. I was thinking of him joining up with a Rogue Trader, and all the Eyes of Mordred being shocked when the person who they thought should be dead by now returns holding the eyeless head of an Ork Warboss or something.

    Bump because 30 minutes passed. I think that is the time you can go between bumps or whatever.

    I say, go for it!

    We probably should get all that stuff together and put it up on the wiki,

    Gareth set out on the shuttle. In ten years he had to bring the head of a powerful enemy of the Imperium to the Eyes of Mordred, or be forever banished from its ranks. He considered his options. If he could locate an Inquisitor he could become a Black Shield of the Deathwatch until he had claimed something suitable, but it would be hard to find one. His thoughts were interrupted when he came upon a large ship. The comms started. "Identify yourself, vessel." "I am Gareth of the Adeptus Astartes." he replied. "I am Captain Ivan, a Rogue Trader." the comms buzzed back. "A Rogue Trader? I demand to temporarily join your crew." he replied. "Really? Opening the docking bay."

    "So what are we here for?" Gareth asked. "This Space Hulk is rumored to have a STC on it. If anything's salvageable, I can sell it to the Mechanicus and live like a king." replied Ivan. "We need you because according to calculations, there is only a day before the Space Hulk shifts into the Warp for several years. Normally this would not be a problem, but the Ork infestation will slow us down." Gareth nodded, and put on the carapace armor. It felt extremely different from his old power armor. He wished the Black Carapace could make wearing that feel as natural as wearing his terminator armor. He picked up a bolter and headed out.

    Gareth was knocked back. The Warboss laughed. "You says you'ze a Space Marine? You're not wearing their fancy arma, and you are nowhere near as 'ard!" Gareth shouted to the Rogue Trader "Get the STC and go! I shall show this bastard what fear is like! STARE INTO THE DARKNESS AND TREMBLE!" Gareth shot out the lights, leaving the Warboss confused as his eyes adjusted to darkness. "Heh, heh heh... You shall know what it's like to be the enemy of the Eyes of Mordred. Your Waagh! shall be destroyed before it's even started." A few hours later, a few Orks came to examine a mysterious scream from the Boss's room. What they found (after using one of the Mek's fancy torches, which was actually a heavily modified lasgun) was their leader's body gutted and decapitated, his blood being used to draw an eye...

    There was one more day before Gareth's task could be completed. Several members convened to talk about it. "I'm saying, Gawain, the Rogue Trader had to leave him behind on the Space Hulk! Even though it reappeared a week ago, there is no way he could survive four years on an Ork sh-" "Just like there was no way Mordred could've survived seven years on an Eldar Craftworld?" The Marines turned to see Gareth, one arm missing and covered in scars, holding a decomposed, eyeless Ork head in his remaining hand. "...Your survival makes me pity the Orks." Captain Gawain snarked. "You do not know the half of it, Captain. I have never seen Orks so scared of anyone except their Warbosses and Yarrick. So, am I redeemed?" The Chapter Master replied "Although you can never be truly redeemed for murdering that battle-brother, you can rejoin the chapter." Mordred replied "Good. I was getting sick of only slaughtering Orks. Any Chaos or something around?" "Well, yes. Several marines lead by Brother Agravain have fell to Chaos." the Chapter Master replied. "Looks like you'll get a valid reason for murdering those you fought with, Gareth." said Gawain.

    *Those you fought alongside
    Slaughtering those you fought with is obvious. If you fight someone, there's nothing special about killing them. Polite sage for fixing my sentences.

    I updated the wiki to have some information on Percival and Agravain, also adding the Blind Duels to the Beliefs section.

    Bump for feedback on my story. Maybe sometime in the future I'll make an adventure taking place in the six years Gareth was with the Rogue Trader.

    I enjoyed the first 2 sections, but the last section seemed sloppy... "chaos or something?"... really? Would a space marine say that?

    The plot was nice though! Anyway, I like both of hte proposed colour scheme; half and half 'classic' and the red squishy bit alternate one (but not the glow in the dark one). As I suggested before, I suggest one be fore a special company of the chapter; I suggested the 8th Company being responsible for the systems directly surrounding the homeworld. It could instead be that they are specifically tasked with hunting and destroying dark eldar.

    The members of squad Laholt sat in their harnesses, the movement of the assault boat causing them to jostle and sway. They had already cited the right of true deliverance and for the final stretch of the journey they focused on the eight levels of fear. They had been tracking these damned Eldar for months and finally they had a chance to strike! Looking out of a viewport into the inky blackness of space, Sergeant Laholt could not see the sleek black hull of the Dark Eldar cruiser but he longed to be within, and make these eldar scum know what is true fear.

    Shards of crystal shattered against his armour. Red runes displayed that his armour had received damage in numerous places but was still more of less ok; he ran forward through the alien gun fire and slammed his elbow into the nearest xeno he could reach. The lithe warrior ducked out of the way and Sergeant Laholt was forced to sweep with his leg in order to bring the foul thing down. Before it could get back on its feet, a shot from Brother Edrius's bolt pistol finished it. They were approaching the slave pens and time was of the essence; They needed to grab the cargo quickly while the crafts defensive guns were still offline or they would be stranded on a hostile vessel. Bolters and knives at the ready, squad Laholt continued its advance.
