>Recruits [for the Red Scorpions] are drawn from Zaebus Minoris, a small, arid world inhabited by primitive tribes of humans. The tribes' traditions tie into the recruitment process of the Chapter. Missionary Galactica reports that all male infants are presented to their tribes' temple at the first full moon of its life. A few are taken by the "gods" - selected, after stringent genetic testing, by Chapter Apothecaries as potential future Marines. Because these recruits will have had no experience with their parent culture, the Chapter is all these recruits will know.That means that, at some point, despite all the diligence and care of chapter serfs, some toddler had wandered out of the watchful gaze of their caretakers and started bothering a Red Scorpion. Red Scorpions gotta be kidminders.
>>36062501Most space marine chapters are decent guys. Most just know that completing their mission will help the Imperium survive. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of that person whose about to get capped over there.
>>36062501Apothecaries have to know human medicine, not only astartes medicine, I'm sure a competent apothecary would know how to take care of a kid.Maybe that's the job of the apothecary trainees.
>>36063105INFANT, STOP CRYING.INFANT, IF YOU DO NOT STOP CRYING YOU WILL LOSE 1 POINT IN THE TEST.GOD-EMPEROR JUST MAKE HIM STOP
Apothecary Raidis,Despite the transcripts that you sent me showing that, genetically and physically, this infant would make a perfect recruit for the Chapter, I question his faith. He does not pay any attention to my sermons, he threatens to tear off my sacred purity seals, and he will set forth with a wail and a cry when I tell him what he has done is wrong. Something is wrong with him for him to be so heretical under the gaze of a faithful servant of the Emperor.Chaplain AzdazeusPS: If he is so physically capable, why can he not walk? This is a simple matter, Raidis, but it is something this creature cannot grasp, for he but crawls!
I imagine someone fucking up and unleashing a tidal wave of kids that just crash into some hapless terminator>WAARGLBLAARGL
>>36063930BROTHER, SOMETHING IS AMISS.

>>36065770I would imagine they use the old legion method of stuffing the baby to the gills with gene-seed (that felt really bad to type), and waiting to see if it takes or they become horrible mutants they blast out of an airlock.
INFANT, REMEMBER ALWAYS, YOU FIGHT FOR THE IMPERIUM AND, ABOVE ALL, FOR THE EMPEROR>why?>chaplain's face when
>>36067275Babies aren't hard to find, true, but I was under the impression that gene-seed was an extremely valuable resource, and that even chaos legions would likely do some kind of genetic testing first. But, who knows what those crazy fucks do?

>>36067325It is. If the guy goes wrong you just take away the geneseed and repeat with another victim. Recruit.Unless you dont have a competent apothecary around. Or someone who knows enough anatomy, like a torturer or flayer or whatever.I guess some khornate bands just throw geneseed to the babies until a berserker comes out of the pit clad in armour.
>>36067389Before I remembered they would start indoctrination at a young age I was wondering if Space Wolves would take their pubescent recruits to the local tavern/brothel to spread the geneseed around.

>>36070600Actually, a major plot point in Bean's own series is how he and his children with Petra were put in a FTL ship and shot into the future in the hopes that they'd have a cure. This means that Space-Jesus Ender, Reborn Hegemon Peter, and the lil' sister are gonna meet up in a book that will never be written to combine forces in an intergalactic rampage of unimaginable bad-assery that defies explanation because it Orson Scott Card won't write it. To be fair, the amount of bullshit I had to read through in the later books kinda killed any enthusiasm I had left.
>>36070795Actually, he did a sequel.Read Shadows in Flight.tl;dr Earth forgets about Bean and the Delphikis, the cure is never found by man, Bean finds xenos with interesting biology that allows his kids to live but he's already like ten feet tall and his heart gives out

So they got a Sparta type thing going on. That's cool I guess. Maybe if the marines ever get some down time, they'll be allowed to return to their homeworld and learn a little about where they came from/meet their parents. That'd add a little depth to their character to say the least.

>>36070818Yes, and in the process they discover that the buggers are not the innocent ignorant aliens the Hive Queen had led Ender to believe they were. Their "Hive Mind" is actually just a produce of the ruling class genetically engineering the working class into subservience, with organelles in their cells which kill them if they step out of line. The workers COULD function just fine without a queen, the queens just don't allow them that freedom.Bean wanted to contact Ender and warn him of this, but his kids stopped him from doing so, because they were concerned the transmission could make the location of their new home world known.

>>36078893and with his dying breath the old man speaks words that will haunt the marine for centuries:that's why we sent you so fucking far away
>>36075046Damn it, I hoped to read about Curze.
>>36075395I HAVE AWOKEN, IS IT TIME FOR BATTLE BROTHER-CHAPLAIN?my apologies venerable one, i needed to share my worries about initiate #100244, today he almost hit me with a plasma gun's shot and burned all my purity seals, i am afraid i will have to make him leave our sacred chapter.I REMEMBER THAT I WAS PUT IN THIS SACRED MACHINE BECAUSE ONE OF MY INITIATES BELIEVED IT WOULD BE FUN TO SHORTEN MY KRAK GRENADE FUSE BY 2 SECONDS AND YET HE STILL MADE IT FAR IN THE CHAPTER HE IS A CHAPLAIN NOW.i understand venerable one but those were very holy purity sealsNO BUTS YOUNG MAN YOU WILL RAISE THAT INITIATE TO BE AN EMPEROR LOVING ANGEL OF DEATH AND YOU WILL DO A GOOD JOB ABOUT ITb-but dad!

>>36081134My sides beg for mercy
>>36070221>>36070103>>36069599I am dieing here, glorious thread
>>36081134WHY HAVEN'T YOU RECRUITED ANY NEW ASPIRANTS YET? IS IT UNFAIR FOR ME TO WISH TO HAVE MORE NEOPHYTES?Venerable Dreadnought, as I have informed you before, Apothecary Valicadius and I are taking it slow - we do not want to recruit those who wouldn't be physically able to be a space marine.
Imagine that shit with the Adeptus Mechanicus...
This is how you put them to sleep.
RECRUIT, WHY ARE YOUR INDEPENDENT ASSIGNMENTS NOT COMPLETED?YOU ARE AN ASTARTAS, NOT SOME MORTAL ARCHIVIST, STOP WASTING YOUR TRAINING WITH THE INTERACTIVE SIMULATIONS.THAT DOES IT, IT'S 100 RITES OF VINDICATION AND A WEEK ON NUTRITION PACKS FOR YOU MISTER!
>>36077108>MY EYES ARE SECRETING WATER. I MUST SEEK THE APOTHECARY."My Lord apothecary, it is only the opinion of this humble serf, but from his tears and his bloody vomit, I think he's showing... emotion".
i love how we went from jokes about child initiates to jokes about teen and pre-teen initiates, it's like they are really growing with the chapter
>>36085364they're growing on /tg/
>>36084949BROTHER PICKLES, I'M S-...I'M S-...I'M SOR-...HRRRGKGAKI'M SORRYYYY
>>36085415These are /tg/'s babies
A IS FOR ASTARTES, THE EMPEROR'S FINEST, PROTECTORS OF THE IMPERIUMB IS FOR BOLTGUN, DESTROYING THE FOES OF THE EMPEROR IN GLORIOUS METAL AND FIREC IS FOR CHAPLAIN. OBEY HIS COMMANDS AT ALL TIMES OR FACE PUNISHMENT UPON THE STEP OF INSOLENCED IS FOR DROP-POD, WHICH WILL CARRY YOU TO HONOURABLE BATTLE FOR THE GLORY OF THE CHAPTERE IS FOR EXTERMINATUS, WHEN PLANETS BURN AS FLAMING EXAMPLES OF THOSE WHO INCUR THE EMPEROR'S WRATH should I go on
>>36086334THE INITIATES MUST LEARN BROTHER, CONTINUE
>>36086334F IS FOR FIRE, ALL THAT HERETICS DESIRE
>>36086334BROTHER, THE INITIATES SHALL NOT LEARN THE ALPHABET OF HIGH GOTHIC IF YOU DO NOT COMPLETE THE SONG OF ALPHABET LEARNING.
>>36086334>C>not ChapterF IS FOR FURY, THE RIGHTEOUS WRATH WHICH HAS TO BE YOUR ONLY GUIDE IN BATTLEG IS FOR GLORY EARNED THROUGH OUR ETERNAL CRUSADE AGAINST THE FORCES OF CHAOS
>>36086334F IS FOR FLAMER, TO DELIVER THE EMPEROR'S FURY WITH HOLY PROMETHEUMG IS FOR GUARDSMEN. THEY WILL DIE GLORIOUSLY IN BATTLE.H IS FOR HERETIC, WHOM YOU MUST PURGE ON SIGHT TO CLEANSE THEIR FILTH FROM THE GALAXY I IS FOR IMPERIUM, FOR WHICH YOU WILL LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE IN SERVICE IF YOU REMAIN WELL-BEHAVED
>>36086473H IS FOR HERESY, WHICH MUST BE PURGED FROM EXISTENCE WITH HOLY FLAMES OF EMPEROR
>>36086506I'd rephrase G a little.G IS FOR GUARDSMEN, WHO MAY NOT BE AS STRONG IN BATTLE, BUT WHOSE FAITH IS JUST AS STRONG SO THEY BRAVELY SACRIFICE THEIR LIVES TO.PROTECT THE IMPERIUM.
>>36064299BROTHER I AM HIT!BROTHER I AM PINNED HERE!
RECRUIT, THAT IS NOT HOW ONE HANDLES ONE'S WEAPON. SALIVA IS A MOST INEFFICIENT LUBRICANT.
>>36067451No it isn't. Slaanesh is about EXCESS. Having sex doesn't power Slaanesh. Having lots of freaky sex like Gilles de Rai did, powers Slaanesh. Where you don't use normal holes on children.... you create your own holes.As for normal child birth, that's more likely to empower Nurgle, cause that's about creating life, any life.
>>36075001I never got why Corax looked at porn.
>>36086506J IS FOR JUSTICE BROUGHT BY BOLTER AND CHAINSWORD TO HERETICS.K IS FOR KRAK, THE SUBSTANCE THAT BURNS SO HOT THAT IT WILL REDUCE THE UNHOLY TECH TO ASHES IN A MATTER OF SECONDS.L IS FOR LITHANIES THAT WE RECITE TO PRAISE THE EMPEROR AND CLEANSE OUR SOULS.M IS FOR ORDO MALLEUS, THE ZEALOUS SERVANTS OF WHICH NEVER CEASE TO SEEK AND DESTROY FOUL CREATURES OF THE WARP.
>>36086770>>36086770N IS FOR NECRONS, YOU WILL PURGE THEMO IS FOR OLLANIUS PIUS, HE DIED FOR THE EMPEROR AND NONE WILL CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE, SHUT UP BROTHER-CHAPLAIN P IS FOR PRAYER, BECAUSE YOU CANNOT ONLY KILL
>>36086855Q IS FOR QUICK, LIKE THE DEATH OF THE XENOR IS FOR RHINO, NONE WILL TAKE IT FROM USS IS FOR SPACE MARINE, YOU WILL BECOME ONE IF YOU PASS THE TESTST IS FOR TERROR, YOU WILL BRING IT TO ALL ENEMIES OF MAN
>>36086905Somebody say Rhino?
>>36086905U IS FOR UNBREAKABLE, LIKE OUR FAITHV IS FOR VICTORY, ALL THAT AWAITS USW IS FOR WHIRLWIND, RAINING DEATH ON ALL WHO OPPOSE USX IS FOR XENO, HATE THE XENO, KILL THE XENOY IS FOR YOU, THE FUTURE OF THE CHAPTERZ IS FOR ZERO, THE PITY THAT YOU WILL SHOT THE ENEMY
>>36086740I don't get it either, but my guess is that the Emperor came and took Corax away to talk privately one on one for three days, then allowed him to return and save his people. It was said they talked about important things Corax needed to know about the universe and perhaps Chaos, and given advice on how to save his people, in contrast to Angron who was never given this opportunity.So the Emperor letting Corax read a porn mag would be the drawfag equivalent of this, I guess. A beer bottle would also work.
>>36087061SHOW THE ENEMY NOT SHOT>DON'T WORRY SON, YOU ALMOST GOT IT ALL RIGHT THIS TIMEI WILL MAKE YOU PROUD ONE DAY DAD>YOU ALREADY DO *manly astartes tears*
I finally have a use for this image.
this fucking thread
>>36065770The must have a terrible mortality rate.Chaos is so spiky and dangerous it's like Anti-Babyproof.
>>36092941Don't be silly. You know those rubber caps they put on knifes so children can't get cut? They have something sort of like that, but with heads instead of rubber.
>>36086740It's because Corax was big on replenishing the ranks of the Raven Guard after the Heresy. So it's a gene-seed or a sex joke, because he had reproduction on the mind at all times.
>>36093100Makes sense. I never thought of that.
HOW MANY TIMES MUST I INFORM YOU THAT HOLY FRAG GRENADES ARE NOT DECORATIONS!YOU MUST CEASE HANGING THEM ON OBJECTS!sighhh...IF YOUR DESIRE IS SO GREAT, PERHAPS WE CAN PROCURE SOME INERT TRAINING PROPS FROM THE ARMORY... BUT YOU ARE STILL IN SECTION!
QUESTION: HOW WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR HAIR CUT INITIATE? I want to look like Cyrus from the Blood Ravens!RESPONSE: I WILL NOW COMMENCE SHAVING OF THE ENTIRE HEAD. *whirs up his various tech marine tools*
>>36075046>STOP INFILTRATING THE CUPBOARDtoppest of kekkest
>>36098050Be funny to have a part 2 where the initiates have enough intelligence and skill to booby trap properly, but still not enough wisdom to realize why they shouldn't.
*Meanwhile, in the Eye of Terror*BEHOLD, YOUNG ONE. TODAY WE WILL BE BUILDING CASTLES OUT OF BLOCKSAND THEN DESTROYING THEM, AS IS YOUR IRON RIGHTLATER OBLITERATOR SKAL SHALL MORPH HIS GUNHANDSMOUTHS INTO VARIOUS ANIMALS FOR YOUR AMUSEMENTNOW BUILD, SMALL ONE! BUILD!
*Emperors Children Children Art Class*AS YOU CAN SEE, THE BEST PAINT IS FRESH PAINT, SO DO NOT WASTE ANY.But... why is the paint crying?THE PAINT CRIES BECAUSE IT IS NOT BEING USED. IT LONGS TO BE PUT TO THE CANVAS.But... why does the canvas move when I try to paint it? A...and.... why does it laugh?
OKAY, MEWLING WHELP, NOW YOU MUST PROVE YOURSELF AS A NIGHT LORD. PUT ON THIS MASK.This mask...it feels funny. Is this actually ski-NOW, WHILE WEARING THAT MASK, SNEAK UP ON JOHNNY AND SCARE HIM! BE GENTLE ON HIM, FOR IT IS HIS FIRST TIME BEING FRIGHTENED IN SUCH A MANNER....I did it, dad! Are you pro-WHY DID YOU NOT BEAT JOHNNY TO A PULP?! WHY DIDN'T YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF USING YOUR GREATEST WEAPON TO KILL HIM! WE FIGHT IN THE NAME OF FEAR, WHY ARE YOU BEING SO WEAK!?!?Dad, why are you being so mean and loud!I'M SORRY, I DIDN'T MEAN TO SNAP AT YOU. HERE, HAVE SOME CUPCAKES AND COOKIES.You really change your moods a lot.OUR FATHER WAS LIKE THAT AND THINGS WORKED OUT FINE.
>>36104652BECAUSE THAT CANVAS IS OTHERWISE KNOWN AS BROTHER LECHEROUS' GLORIOUS ASS.
>>36099806>shaven head initiatesMohawk initiates are infinitely superior.
>>36106170I love the sergeants with the mohicans. Problem is, they don't really fit a Dark Angels force that well.
>>36109299No see, that isn't actually a natural mohawk. The Apothecary merely ordered the marine's back hair to tactically relocate to the head. Baldness is officially being noticed as a mutation by Mechanicus geneators. The Bald Nevermores are most heavily afflicted by this, with a nearly 95% rate of permanent baldness since just before the Tartarus Crusade.
>>36109299But Dark Angels are literally the American Indian meets monks the chapter. Check out their Index Astartes article(s).
>>36109540Now its all KNIGHTS KNIGHTS KNIGHTS.They have nothing to do with "native american".
>>36109540>>36109839They have a little bit of Native American in them (mostly in the Deathwing and some old fluff you can cling to) but not enough anymore that a mohican would make sense unless you decided 'this marine's going to be more Native American than the others.'You could probably make an American Indian successor chapter, though. They could be founded from some of the members of the Plains World before the Tyranids wrecked most of the Deathwing, and carry a lot of those traditions mixed with those of the feral world they recruit from.
Don't you die on me dammitWhat about the Word Bearers? Like normal SMs but angrier?
>>36110347>but not enough anymore that a mohican would make senseMohawks are traditional space marine haircuts. In ye olde tymes, every initiate would have a mohawk and warpaint. The only ones allowed to deviate were the full marines.
>>36062501>Brother Kaldius, where is Chaplan Azmodai?I directed him to the Apothecarium, venerable one. He wished to visit Brother Gratius who is recovering from his wounds.>Did you inform him that the Apothecarium had been moved to make room for the infant Neophytes?No, venerable one, I did not.>By the Primarch, you must stop him! It is almost play time!++BROTHER, I AM PINNED HERE!++
>>36113341Is that a shoulder-mounted heavy bolter?
>>36113439Yeah. All marine heavy weapons were shouldered back then.
>>36113439WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT, CIVILIAN SCUM
>>36113461I hate those static left arms.
>>36109402>>36109540>>36109839>>36110347Shaved stripe haircuts weren't exclusively an American thing.
>>36113461A shoulder-fired heavy bolter w/ powered ammo feed to the backpack would be pretty awesome.
>>36113341You have to explain the sliced puffy sleeves to me. Is that just because it was still a lot closer to WFB than today?
>>36113485SUPPORT THOSE WEAPONS, MENCARESS THOSE HEATSINKS LIKE YOU MEAN IT
>>36113461I imagine the mag on that heavy bolter going dry pretty often
>>36114635The heavy weapon models that don't have cables or ammo belts leading to giant backpacks come with two extra magazines to store under the backpack.That's still not very much, but according to the fluff marines have close to 100% accuracy, don't hold down triggers, and single bolt rounds can kill multiple enemies.One Ultramarine got punished for "wasting" ammunition because he missed a couple shots.
>>36114635I don't know...it seems fairly large and wide for the kind of ammunition it's holding. It should be able to hold a fair few rounds.
>>36114704It could realistically hold 50-60 shots for that kind of setup.LMGs with even smaller magazines exist IRL.
>>36114719> people legitimately put stanags into the m249
>>36115082>b-but muh guidebook says I can
>>36099806How many initiates do idolize the Blood Ravens?I imagine there being a comic series similar to Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos, but about Gabriel Angelos.
>>36115872>Each chapter has a comic series based around the heroes and current leaders of their chapter facing down their worst enemies>The Avenging Angels>The Fantastic Fists>The Ultramar League
>>36106170>>36109299>>36109540>>36113521>>36113544This reminded me, Spellcrow does such heads. And the guy on the left will never not amuse me.And since they recycle the same bald heads and just add stuff to them, there is always two heads with that face.
>>36067330I fucking love that picture, and I kind of want it to be canon....
>>36115900The marine on the left will hold his breath until you love him
>>36115893Iron Brother Stark was right.Suck it, Captain Ultramar fags.
>>36115958But Captain Ultramar knows better than anyone the importance of the truth in the Codex Astartes over what the Ultramarines feel is right and wrong.
>>36115958>>36116355>reading babby marine-shit>not superior Tau Man'Ga

YOU WILL NOT DESECRATE THIS MEETING OF THE CHAPTER'S YOUNG ONES WITH YOUR CRIES.>Please, I'll do anything, just make it stop...SILENCE! NOW, CHILDREN, GATHER AROUND, AND HEAR THE TALE OF HOW YOUR BATTLE UNCLE TARSUS DEFEATED AN ENTIRE ARMY OF FOUL HERETICS, ARMED ONLY WITH HIS WITS AND A BOLTER.

INITIATE. IT IS PERFECTLY NATURAL TO VENERATE THE HUMAN FORM, ESPECIALLY THAT OF A NUBILE WOMAN. HOWEVER, YOU MUST RELINQUISH THAT DEVOTIONAL MATERIAL IMMEDIATELY.
>>36116878was this really worth cappingits really just the same ~hilarious 40k maymays! you see on /tg/ every fucking day put to an alphabet
