Not original OP, I make the thread because thread 3 reached its limit and I don't see the new one, apologies if it already exists.Previous threads:>>65965351 >>65977935 >>65998356Where we left, we had done a good deal of creating a Necron faction (endangered and with a former lower-class Necrontyr as an overlord). We were also progressing with our CSM warband and there is still to do with the Orks.Pic related is the hero of the necron army.
>>66035693Swiggity swooty, I'm coming for that shooty
>>66035731Yep. I think I'll go to sleep, I'll see tomorrow how the Necrons turned up. Don't forget to give them a name!
>>66035693And that's the third thread archived.I have just one question: How the fuck do we keep the Mechanicus off this planet? Hell, the plant and animal life alone would make any Magos blast sacred oils all over the inside of his robe on sight.
>>66035855Space Marines-held planets tend to have a greater autonomy than most, besides Mechanicus presence is technically ensured by Techmarines, who then work with the flora in the best interests of the Chapter.
>>66032310>They ply the sector and trade things.I think I like this idea, after all they are understrength so they need to be more careful out of instinct of survival. Plus, the overlord not being an actual noble, he probably doesn't share the boundless arrogance of many other overlords.According to the book of Fate (Black Crusade RPG), the necron weapons are difficult to find, non-weapon artifacts even more so, but not completely impossible. This necron folk would feed a black market more active than in most places, maybe not trading ancient technological marvels but at least Gauss and tesla weaponry.

>>66036553Right, I think that a Magos that wouldn't be an absolute idiot would try to do things the diplomatic way: 0x0777D131gamma would let them have some samples of the local flora and fauna to analyse in their Forge-Worlds in exchange for high-end optics, air vehicles, stealth equipment and so on.
>>66036553>>66036980Speaking as the anon which wrote Sidon, I believe a trade would be the way to go.
>>66037699Is anyone making the map?
>>66037892>>66037699Wee need someone which knows how to do it.Also, I would like to attract drawfags somehow.
>>66036980What would they trade for them though? Cybernetics would be the obvious route.
>>66039848Perhaps they conduct a joint project: the Predators capture some beasts, the sidonics research them, and both share the results?
>>66040426That sounds good
So the fallen titans generally follow the same tactics as the Pale Riders? Since they're related and all
>>66041137More or less, except they probably slip into the warp long enough to get behind you then pop out like the surprise party from hell.
>>66041181>Teleporting/Hellgating TitansHow horrifying
Any good names for the Warbringer Titan? I was thinking something to the effect of Diu Proeliis (Long Strider) to show age and the breadth of it's war record
>>66041694I like it
>>66041694Sounds good to me

>>66042317>so what sort of color scheme?>Cavalry and flanker archetypes.Pick your favorite cavalry regiment I guess? At least for our one titan.
>>66039848I think that few human-produced high-tech goods would interest the Necrons. However, manpower in bulk could be something they lack, be it as builders, workers or even a militia and this is the strong point of the Imperium.Raw resources can also be an option.
>>66039848Oh sorry I didn't see the post to which you were answering, my bad.Yes, cybernetics would be a good option.
>>66041297Now imagine that it's got Daemons clinging to the outside jumping off to wreck your shit.Traitor Titans are no fucking joke.
>>66040426I'm just imagining Grand Vulture Mengele shooting the shit with some Magos of the Biologis while dissecting one of these things, and it is glorious.
The orks, admech and sisters could have a character. Maybe the guard too since they only have Father Mathias. did Sidon have a Skitarii legion ?There are other factions (like eldars, a traitor regiment, another chaos warband) or important planets in the sector ?
>>66036462Just some random, near-gibberish thoughts I had for the CSM. I'm calling them the Pale Gallantry for now, but that might be too bland. Make of it what you will, could use some help tweaking stuff around.Their homeworld I'd imagined as fairly Frostpunk-esque, little pockets of life clustered around the industrial foundries and mining mega machines that stave off the cold. Each little city is effectively a fief of one of the Gallants, often having their own little disputes or alliances between themselves while providing materiel for the warband. The world sits near the edge of a tendril of unstable space, enough to wreck the planet's ecosystem and increase the mutation rates amongst the human populace but still mistakable for a more typical Imperial world.The Gallantry itself is loosely organised into a rough form of feudalism, every marine ultimately serving the Daemon Prince X'anathor, but those closer to ascension themselves claiming rank and vassalage over lower marines, leaning on favour from the Deamon Prince to secure their right. Incohesive clusters of allegiance within the warband, each acting to the whims of the leading Gallantry, and ostensibly to the whims of X'anathor, rather than a unified mass. Considerable involvement of human serfs as aides, equerries, and occasionally as disposable troops. Ruling marines ride as cavalry on Chaosy equines, using shrieking lances (modified Blastmasters? Lascannons? Ether Lances?), while lower ranked marines either follow as a coterie of lighter cavalry with whatever preferred ranged weapon, or as ground infantry if they aren't particularly favoured. The warband has several smaller voidships, each the claimed demesne of a few Gallants at most, but no capital-sized ships. Not sure what would be interesting for the Psyker cult.
>>66045415>did Sidon have a Skitarii legion ?Yes.
>>66041694That works neatly
>>66044270Jeeze I didn't even think of that. That's actually a good idea.>Daemons suddenly jumping off to get into melee as the Titans guns eradicate city blocks
>>66045930I like "Gallantry", but we already have two "pale" in the titan legions. Hwo about something to do with sound? Like "I will try to augment your ideas, I hope you won't mind.How about a rogue planet flying through the void, long flung out of his solar system by a gravquake? It is unbearably cold due to the lack of a sun. The entire planet is like Antarctica, except at the places where the gravquake cracked the crust, creating volcanos, geothermal vents and similars. These spots provide heat to both stave off the cold and power the industries. The lava is processed into raw materials for the geoforges.The feudalism based on those closer to ascension lording over others is great. It may provide us with an army which is the Chaos equivalent of Bretonnia, a few gallant and mighty space knights and their masses of disposable serfs and thralls."Shrieking Lances" sounds great. I favor them being a sort of sound cannon.Agree on the several smaller voidships. Raider hulls.The psyker cult may be made up of people which embrace the cold and wander off into the icy wastes, returning as a sort of mad prophet lich/mummy capable of congealing your soul.
>>66046844>>66044270Shit that's great! Adding on the notes.
>>66045930>Chaosy equines>>66046886>Chaos equivalent of BretonniaTwo words: Chaos gryphons.
>>66046886>>66045930They're Emporer's Children, so they should be purple, right? We can call them the Violet Gallantry.
>>66046886>Pallid, Ashen, Sallow, Ghastly >Howling, Shrieking, Wailing
>>66046972>>66045930>>66046886I love all of it. he Shrieking Lances sounds like a chaos version of the Eldar sonic weapons. Which they possibly reverse engineered and corrupted
>X'anathor: High King>High ranking Gallantry: Paladins/Dukes or equivs>Various barons, counts etc>Lowest are Landed Knights
>>66046972>>66046886I like these ideas, thanks. I was aiming for the chevalier stylings, but obviously as Chaos marines there's a lot of backstabbing, degeneracy, and overall brutality inherent to the lifestyle. Snide courtly manners when the Prince himself calls for council, but not-so-veiled hostility between the favoured Gallants, as one's ascension draws from the others' attentions. Gallant only in name, or as an amusing affectation.
>>66048401Which all fits perfectly in with the Bretonnian ideas. In the old school lore the Brets had big issues due to their Nobles falling to Slaanesh thanks to their decadence
So in addition to the Manticores would they have Pegasi as well? Maybe Hippogriffs?
>>66047442That would be incredibly ironic and perfectly in line with the Slaaneshi idea of corruption, I love it.
>>66049499Thanks>he Gallantry never go into battle without being bespoke with ornamentation>As their ascension nears the become ever more decorated with all manner of gaudy, grotesque and stange>Their Shrieking Lances are perverted copies of Eldar Sonic lances made with the aid of Dark Mechanicus but have managed to create sustained production on their own>A Landed Gallantry is shamed if they cannot procure their own Lance as it is as much a symbol of office as their Bolters and Armor>The Lances not only inflict pain upon those struck but all manner of sensation ranging from fear to pleasure
>>66047266I favor "Ghastly Gallantry".
>>66049958What if the Gallantry still haven't decided on a name so they're all so self absorbed? Like a group of people voting for themselves so nothing get's done?So all those names are used by Imperials which makes X'anathor seethe even more despite his efforts to get the rest to follow a name for their Kingdom
>>66050167That's fine too.
>>66050167It's almost like they're ripping off the predators.

>>66047186violet gallantry sound good.>>66050167I think X'anathor would have prove that the name he liked the most was the right one.He can t be that incompetent ... or can he ?Anyway if they do everything for serve him, obeying any of is orders and whims that shouldn t be a problem. Afterall X'anathor is High King of (what s the name of the planet ?), they will obey or worse.Plus he will probably let them keep the names of their minor gallantry as is vassals.
>>66052189I don't think X'anathor Is necessarily incompetent. Like he's on a losing streak certainly but he managed to ascend to Daemon Prince so he couldn't have been that big a failure in life.
>>66052189He's been killed by the same bullet twelve times in a row. That has to have cost him some standing.
>>66052270True enough, but the less loyal of is vassals could have think that and others could have doubts.>>66052512definetly he has lose some standing.... but arriving to not even respecting the name he chose for the kingdom ?that s not something little.
I'm thinking of compiling the Violet Gallantry notes, unless you anons want to brainstorm more.
>>66053977Go ahead, we can just add new stuff later.How's the 1d4chan going?
>>66049493>>66046972>>66045930Regarding their mounts, anons, how about something which can descend from orbit into the enemy, is very well armed and can outfight enemy aircraft? HELDRAKES, just imagine, chaos space marines on the backs of Heldrakes!
>>66054344Great.Oh no, I'm not the 1d4chan anon, I'm the anon which wrote Sidon, Jove II and the pdf for the 666th. I mean to make a pdf for the Violet Gallantry.>>66054407I second this idea.
>>66054407That sounds appropriately horrifying.
Here, details from the warband's planet. Speaking of it, we need a name for it.>The Helnest is a fusion of volcanic caldera and warpgate, into which dozens of people and xenos are sacrificed daily. From it emerge the heldrakes which the warband tames into submission as mounts.>The X’arforge is the manufactorum controlled by X’anathor. The latter infected the whole structure with the Obliterator Virus, turning the factory into an industrial-scale womb whose many mouths suck raw magma and heat from the planet’s depths. The X’arforge alone births half of the warband’s materiel.>The X’atelier is a titanic and ever growing cathedral of corruption. This is where the warband brings the countless relics and idols it plunders from imperial planets. Those very items are smashed into fragments from which grand mosaics are created, each detailing in detail the destruction of the planet from which the very same relics and idols came. The glue that keeps such art pieces together is made from human fluids.
>>66057085Beautiful>>66054407I like it, but there should be few/if any and X'anathor rides one for maximum 'fuck you all'. Probably would style on Abaddon if it wouldn't end with his excruciating torture
>>66057085Do I even want to know what kind of fluids?
>>66057085On a name how about Chev'ral? Like a play on Chivalry.And for X'anathor's Helldrake how about Sky Ripper for a name? Or would that be too inelegant?
>>66058682Yeah, that might be a bit too on the nose. something like Nightmare, I don't know.
>>66059489Me either. Every other name I've thought of doesn't stick
>>66057085Cool. >Here, details from the warband's planet. Speaking of it, we need a name for it.Would X'anathor name it after himself ? Same for the city where he rules (and where the X’arforge and X’atelier are found, same for is palace that could have been previously the one of the now defunt planetary governor).>>66054407Good idea >>66057345But like he said they should be few that use them, probably only the dukes are able (as they posses the experience and powers for control them, and large fiefs for feed enough daily slaves to this beasts). Even if they number in the dozen, they can bring terror and destruction like no one else in this sector.That said with the Helnest maybe they have more Helldrakes than a dozen. Marines that are barons/counts probably use land steeds half machine and demon.
>>66059872maybe you are right on the name. X' seem to be a recurring theme here.X'etdal? X'anadu?
>>66057345>>66059872Thanks.>>66057345>>66059872Update:>The Helnest is a fusion of volcanic caldera and warpgate, into which dozens of people and xenos are sacrificed daily. From it emerge the beasts which the warband tames into submission as mounts: steeds of Slaneesh, demonic horses, warp gryphons, manticores and the rare Heldrakes.>>66058673If you're asking, no.>>66060129I like X'anadu.
>>66060149>I like X'anadu.Thanks. Me too.
>Battle of Ermtu III>A recent battle between the Violet Gallantry and their accursed allies against Imperial defenders of the Ermtu III system>It is still unknown whether or not this attack was part of a grander strategic ploy or a fit of Slaaneshi hedonism>Ermtu III is an out of the way Archive World which Inquisitorial and Administratum sources cannot find anything particularly special about it making the notion of this attack being the Gallantry simply being bored more likely>Could be best described as 'oddly mundane' by a local PDF Grenadier as neither side was able to gain a distinctive advantage over the other with both taking losses in war material/lives>The Gallantry retreated with encryption breakers managing to acquire Vox Casts about 'taking a wrong turn 10 light years back' and 'how displeased the High King would be for this road trip gone wrong'
Overview>Originally a warrior lodge within the Emperor’s Children Legion, the Violet Gallantry was corrupted by Slaanesh and fought for Horus during the Horus Heresy. It splintered from the legion after the Battle of Harmony under the leadership of the X’anathor the Shining, which became a Daemon Prince in M35. Following this event, the whole warband now seeks to achieve daemonhood and the god-like power it gives them. For them, Chaos is a means for an end, not an end on itself. >The Gallantry’s hierarchy is loosely organized along feudal ties of vassalage. X’anathor the Shining is the High King, riding the Heldrake ?, owning the better lands, ships and industries; below him come the dozen Dukes, each a powerful champion approaching daemonhood, riding the rare warp gryphons; after them come the hundred Counts, veterans of a hundred raids and battles, riding manticores; the rest of the chaos marines are Gallants, each holding a small fief and riding demonic horses. This organization leads to clusters of allegiance within the warband, each acting to the whims of their leader, and ostensibly to the whims of X’anathor, being anything but a disciplined and cohesive force. To show their power, each rank progressively marks their arms and armor with more gaudy and grotesque ornaments, from lacquered plate and curved cuirasses to toothed codpieces and psychedelic-colored ridges.
>>66061296I can see the Lodge they formed out of being based heavily around chivalric ideals which has become heavily corrupted since then owing to their current state. On X'anathor, maybe he started his Warband because Fulgrim's hedonism and inaction disgusted him as he doesn't improve himself? To X'anathor, the journey to ultimate power is a worthy cause
>>66061365>I can see the Lodge they formed out of being based heavily around chivalric ideals which has become heavily corrupted since then owing to their current state.Good point, should I add this to the text?>On X'anathor, maybe he started his Warband because Fulgrim's hedonism and inaction disgusted him as he doesn't improve himself? To X'anathor, the journey to ultimate power is a worthy causeThat's a good motivation.
Overview 2/2>In battle, the Violet Gallantry starts by whispering in their twisted voices which can be heard from far away. The enemy hears only the cawing of birds, but feels a chill upon their souls and a blow in their morale. The High King, Dukes and Counts fight as a demonic heavy cavalry, discharging Shrieking Lances from afar, seeking the weak points of the enemy line on the battlefield. The Gallants fight as infantry, using whatever weapons they prefer. Their thralls and serfs man the artillery and vehicles, pounding the foe with enough ordinance to create a field of craters. Their allies are deployed only if the High King deems necessary, for resorting to magic and titans is a blow to their pride.>The Shrieking Lances are a weapon unique to the Gallantry. Based on stolen and reverse engineered Eldar sonic weaponry, substituting the wraithbone for a fleshier warp-metal. These weapons vibrate with excitement at the prospect of shattering anything and anyone. Upon hitting a foe, the Lances not only inflict pain but all types of sensations: fear, pleasure and even happiness are possible. The High King himself wields the original Lance, an Eldar Vibro Cannon fused to a bound demon.
Anon writing up the Violet Gallantry here: I have to sleep and have real life meetings tomorrow, so I will return in about 16 hours, when I will try to finish the Gallant pdf. In the meantime, I suggest you folks try to decide a name for the High King's Heldrake.And let's not forget there are still the necrons and orks to fluff up.Good night fellas.
>>66061365>>66061435fucking hell. theres no way in fuck that i'm going to be able to keep up with all thisI leave you lads alone for a single day and our CSM are now dragon knights.
>>66061606Isn't it amazing? I regret nothing whatsoever.
>>66061365That makes sense. Fulgrim lost himself to the decadence and pleasures of Slaanesh, he forgot all about the endless journey towards perfection.
>>66061461Given the fact that the plant and animal life here consumes metal, I'd say that there probably aren't a lot of necrons present, and those that are would probably be incredibly reclusive.
So we're in accordance with turning X'anathor into Abhorash?
>>66064133Which works well cause I'm pretty sure that the necrons were roller to be very small in number
>>66064133Or maybe Crypteks used to come by and collect trees and beasts to see if Necrodermis could be cultivated but lost interest when they realized that those were Warp-tainted.
>>66064133>>66065100>>66065119Wheren t the necrons on another planet instead of the space marines predators one ?But .... maybe metal plants and animals are "common" in the sector Venaro ?
>>66065170So other planets could have similar species.
>>66065170My suggestion (>>66065119) doesn't require it, but that could be an interesting fact about the Venaro Sector which puzzles Imperial scholars.
I can see a number of planets in the sector having similar 'metal eating' forests due to smuggling, stupid nobles and curious Mechanicus. Not to the extent of the Pred's world but it isn't hard to find them
So what still needs doing, fluff-wise? I'm kind of hitting a wall with my Gallantry stuff, so maybe doing something else will help.
>>66065730Hmmm. Maybe some battles or characters?
I was originally going to post about the interactions between the Knights and Gallantry but then remembered the Knights were very un knight like. They probably hate them just for being Chaos than making a mockery of chivalry
>>66065180Ah ok. >>66065730This.>>66065792And adding some more description of other factions (orks and necrons) or relevant planets. We could make other factions too, like an eldar one but maybe is better to finish this necrons first .Or we go for it ?
>>66066333I once suggested that Alaitoc has been helping the Predators by launching attacks that end up leading them to plots set in motion by the Pale Gallantry. That could do.
>>66066375Where is Altaioc currently? Maybe they're where the Gallantry got the Sonic Lances? So Eldar forces in the sector are elements of Altaioc that are actually aiding the Imperials against Chaos ? That's pretty odd but fitting for how eird this sector is
>>66066490Alaitoc is known for having agents across the galaxy according to the wiki, so if someone would back that up I'd be very grateful.
>>66047266throwing my hat in for pallid gallantry or howling gantry
>>66066899Howling Gallantry gets my vote
>>66064827Yeah, that sounds about right for him.
How about we roll up a central planet. Something that everyone wants a piece of for whatever reason so we have at least one setpiece for conflicts. >https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Planet_generator

Tried to make some 3d Models for a Dark Eldar Thread, but that one died and hasn't come back. Was a fun one though, we did Arrogant Nobility Archon-Pirate who turned an Imperial Space Cathedral into his own void ship/space castle.Anyway, do you guys have any need for unique or weird 40k models for this thread? I'd be happy to lend my services if anyone wants a chance at actually making one or more of the armies and characters IRL.

Stuff like Lord and Prince are fine I think, maybe they just take personalised titles instead of conforming to a standard nomenclature.

I'm back. I'm gonna work on the Gallantry pdf. In the meanwhile, I'm also gonna repost the previous PDFs.I see that some anons prefer different names for the Violet Gallantry, like "Howling". Thing is, I can't tell which alternative is more popular by now. I suggest people which want a certain name, like "Violet" or "Howling", reply to this post.Regarding not using High King/Dukes/Counts/Gallants, well, what are the alternatives?
>>66071350>Islands, BarrenIt's Australia, I guess? Barrens is kind of a given, what plant life there is is sparse and extremely stunted from the terrible conditions, and maybe Islands could be almost mountainous remains that've stood since the oceans disappeared. Either way, we're onto the more interesting rolls. The people. Roll me 1d100 for population count. >>66071234Sure, I'm not suggesting we call everyone lords and what have you, but not everyone even deserves titles. A decent chunk of the warband is still going to be rank and file of a sort.It's not that big a deal, I'm not gonna sperg if we want to call them that, I'd just like to see something a little more creative, y'know?

>>66069995>Tell me more about this Chaos Calvalry though?>The Gallantry’s hierarchy is loosely organized along feudal ties of vassalage. X’anathor the Shining is the High King, riding the Heldrake X’arnac, owning the better lands, ships and industries; below him come the dozen Dukes, each a powerful champion approaching daemonhood, riding Heldrakes; after them come the hundred Counts, veterans of a hundred raids and battles, riding manticores; the rest of the chaos marines are Gallants, each holding a small fief and riding demonic horses. This organization leads to clusters of allegiance within the warband, each acting to the whims of their leader, and ostensibly to the whims of X’anathor, being anything but a disciplined and cohesive force. To show their power, each rank progressively marks their arms and armor with more gaudy and grotesque ornaments, from lacquered plate and curved cuirasses to toothed codpieces and psychedelic-colored ridges. >In battle, the Howling Gallantry starts by whispering in their twisted voices which can be heard from far away. The enemy hears only the cawing of birds, but feels a chill upon their souls and a blow in their morale. The High King, Dukes and Counts fight as a demonic heavy cavalry, discharging Shrieking Lances from afar, seeking the weak points of the enemy line on the battlefield. The Gallants fight as infantry, using whatever weapons they prefer.>The Shrieking Lances are a weapon unique to the Gallantry. Based on stolen and reverse engineered Eldar sonic weaponry, substituting the wraithbone for a fleshier warp-metal. These weapons vibrate with excitement at the prospect of shattering anything and anyone. Upon hitting a foe, the Lances not only inflict pain but all types of sensations: fear, pleasure and even happiness are possible. The High King himself wields the original Lance, an Eldar Vibro Cannon fused to a bound demon.
>>66071615ah no i don t see you sperging, you haven t do anything like that. And you make another good point with being more creative and the fact of lower marines not deserving leading titles, but just rank.ah the other half was just indicating where we did use them already (the titles).>>66071799i vote for Howling Gallantry as well.----------->>66071615>>66071389this is the current High King/Dukes/Counts/Gallantsnow what about :Autarch / X'a Beloved / Howling Riders / Gallants / Lower Marines (don t deserve a title, only military rank)too cheap ?

This brand of leadership can be the result of a warlord, a particularly psychotic heir, or even, distressingly often, a rogue democratic leader who played the long game and finally made his move. After all, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, and is absolutely sought by the absolutely corrupt.Uh oh.Let's call it one last roll, one more 1d100 for our exports.

>Fleet>The warband’s feudal hierarchy results in everyone acquiring ships by themselves, eager to add naval firepower to their personal domains. As a result, the Gallantry has a ragtag fleet of Escort-sized hulls, ranging from Armed Freighters to Raiders, but no Capital Ships. X’anathor himself owns a wolf-pack of Idolator hulls, while a few gallants pool their resources to buy or steal a single ship, enabling them to raid and pirate on their own.Anyone wants to add anything or is that okay?

>>66072389still good>>66072465so let s see :High King : X’anathor has given himself a title that can dare to the great titles used by great chaos lords ....... a move that let everyone see is right to rule. The title it's related to is ideals of distorted chivalry.X'a Beloved : Now here. After have prove that they deserve the title and tame and learn to ride a Heldrake (they need to be a Howling Rider first and a good one. X’anathor could make an exception in some cases but he will probably stick to this "code" most of the time, unless you really impress him) there is a ceremony where X’anathor gives the title and show with a gesture that they are is beloved (something like caress a cheek or simply placing is hand on their heads). But there is a last test here fight against X’anathor and prove that you are not weak, you need to resist some minutes at least. Being a Beloved means have the best gear, ships, slaves other than the best pick in loots. And the most and the best lands on the planet. Plus when there is too "discuss" of the most important matters of the Gallantry with X’anathor, you have first right to talk.Howling Riders : Prove not just in battle but even at home to deserve this title, and maybe X’anathor or a Beloved will approve of doing a final trial for see if you can have it. The Final trial is not just a violent fight with demon spawns, and not even tame alone a manticore or learn how to ride it, you need to fight a current Howling Rider. Gallants : The first title that a marine of the Howling Gallantry could receive, above even your brothers. Other than usually have the highest lower rank, prove yourself to be fit and some minor blessings you need to tame and learn to ride a demonic horse. After this a Howling Rider will see if you can do a fight with a current Gallant and take is fief.Lower Marines : You have your ranks for leadership, but you are still see almost like a chaos slave by the above.

>>66073442Thanks.Another thing, maybe we need to give them a symbol ? Unlike the space marine predators, the gallantry probably has a main symbol.
I went ahead and fluffed the psyker cult, how about this?>Allies>The Wasting Anchorites are a psyker cult grudgingly allied with the Gallantry. The warp corruption in X’anadu seems to have provoked their existence. Sometimes, slaves and thralls seek to escape the oppression of their masters, wandering off into the icy wastes. However, not all of them die from cold and hunger. Some, perhaps those with psychic potential, seem to embrace the cold itself. They become able to acquire sustenance from raw ice, to move their darkened fingers despite the hypothermia. Their final appearance is of emaciated and blackened corpses studded with frost. Most of these men and women congregate at a monastery built inside a glacier of black ice which crawls on X’anadu’s north pole, where they meditate and train their mastery over the blizzards, ice and snow. The Gallantry leaves them mostly alone, but demands their ocasional service under pain of the monastery suffering orbital bombardment.>>66073549A symbol would be great. Hmmmmm... How about a golden helmet with three eye slits? X'anathor had three eyes before one of them was pierced by a cyberwood bolt.

>>66073633sound good, you are using the madmen that where mention to abandon the fiefs of the Gallantry time to time, for escape from their servitude. a golden helmet with three eyes slit is ok, but maybe i would add a lance behind and a crown on top of the helmet. Not necessary.
I wonder why the tyrant took over? Was it a General who found the nobles lacking? Did they technically take over because no one else was qualified and the admin hasn't gotten around to clearing the issue?

Decided to roll another guard reg for us to fluff out a bit>Imperial Guard: A true regiment, drilled and competent in their service. >Volunteer: Only the braves (of which there are plenty) join this Regiment. >Standard conscription: Average or above-average citizens recruited from all levels of society.>Civilized World: Soft as clay before the firing of the kiln; war is their crucible. >Ocean: They grew up in the dangers of the depths. >Infantry Regiment >Trench Warfare >Unorthodox: Serve the Emperor in ways frowned upon by most in the Administratum. >Blessed Wargear >Esoteric Beliefs >Adeptus Mechanicus >Eldar Pic related
>>66078045interesting.first quesiton i think needs to be answered here is whether or not they're a local regiment.I think that will dramatically change the way that they operate.if they are local, they're probably somewhat unconventional due to the lack of mainstream imperial contact, but if they're another transplant...well we know what happens to them then.as it stands, the fact that they both hate eldar and are already unorthodox indicates that they are probably a transplant for one reason or another.Perhaps they're unwilling to just throw lives away? >>66076641our SS i think probably use darker colors in their scheme, though the actually clothing is probably somewhat lighter than usual. Apophis II is a desert planet, so keeping cool is a must. Perhaps they have fancy Waffen SS hats rather than helms to keep cool?
>>66079105SS hats seems like a good idea.Maybe they should put a Swastika on their armor or would that be a bit much?
>>66079873it'd be fucking hilarious but i think it would be too on-the-nose.perhaps an allusion to the Schutzstaffel double S logo?
>>66079915Yeah, that would be a classier tip of the hat.Insofar as a reference to nazis can be that is.
>>66080064>tfw I'm a /pol/ crossboarder so it's just doubly amusing to mefor nazi sisters I think we should thing along the lines of pic related.the issue is how to incorporate it into power armor... Overcoats maybe?
>>66080128Overcoats are a good idea, maybe make it their dress uniform? Alternatively, maybe have their armor made in the same style as the Adjutant uniform?
>>66080172>dress uniformthats reasonable. though if they're located further towards the poles on a desert world it'll be cold as fuck too.as for the adjutant. I'm not familiar with the uniform so I Don't know how that would work. that said, they might hail from a pole on their world and just wear an overcoat on top of the armor.
>>66080212I hadn't considered that. Yeah, they probably have overcoats for the sake of warmth.As for the uniform, here they are. I'm not entirely certain how this could be converted into power armor aesthetics, definitely keep the armband though, just replace the Swastika for an Aquilla, and maybe the symbol of the order beneath that.
>>66080458Sisters in their armour will typically wear a robe or habit, I'm not too sure whether it sits beneath the chest piece or if its separate pieces, but I'd imagine it as simply wearing an open greatcoat over their armour instead of the traditional robes. Sisters Superior go bareheaded with their peaked caps, normal Sisters wear the standard sallet.
>>66078045>>66079105How does one unite the concepts of "trench warfare" and "ocean world"? Iwo Jima style island defense or underwater trenches?>Perhaps they're unwilling to just throw lives away? That works neatly to me. The Admech could agree with this because the regiment has experimental underwater gear that is expensive and hard to replace.>>66079105>>66079873>>66079915>>66080064>>66080128>>66080172>>66080212>>66080458>>66080606So:>White armor>SS hats>Overcoat over armor>red armband with golden aquilaThat's about it?
>>66081571>Perhaps they're unwilling to just throw lives away? That works neatly to me. The Admech could agree with this because the regiment has experimental underwater gear that is expensive and hard to replace.I like this for the reason they're unconventional. Their practices enforce this through their sect of the Imperial Truth that needlessly throwing away lives for little gain put them at odds one too many times with local commands so they and their fellow regiments were relocated to the Venaro Sector to set up their own planet, which coincidentally was an ocean world like their home.So they brought their sect and traditions, they are *THE* foremost underwater/amphibious Imperial force in the Sector so command won't throw them away
>>66082116I like the unconventionality too.I'm seeing them as an elite force, somewhat similar to the Solar Auxilia in appearance and quality. Their weaponry will need to be unusual, perhaps a sort of bolter firing small torpedoes?
>>66082186I like that. Though that feels more like something the Predators would cook up to hunt underwater along with supercavitating BoltsActually these guys seem pretty close to the Unbreakable Tritons we did months back. I'd say people could mistake them but these guys are far less autistic about their training and don't get mistaken for Space Marines unlike the Tritons
>>66082263Then how about flechette autoguns based on this?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APS_underwater_rifleThere's space for more than one of these, I think.
>>66081571that s not enough for the sisters, just giving them a red armband with the golden aquila doesn t give them the idea that they are the order of last resort.i mean is good. But for their symbol what about adding a armored soritas boot/punch that cracks an obviosuly mutant skull wrapped in flames ?It could show how much they hate mutants.In regard to the armor it could be very simple, on top of the white there could be some red, black and golden lines, and fewer but more significant verses always related to the impurity of mutants, the red lines for show purity of the human blood, the black ones for the dishonor they received long ago and lastly the gold lines for the endless loyalty to the imperium they show.>>66075951Is becoming pretty good. Maybe you could add the description of their symbol.>a golden helmet with three eyes slit, with one of their dreaded lances behind and the unholy crown of X’anathor on top of the helmet.that got me thinking could the crown of X’anathor be an artifact ?>"Ah the Golden Crown of X’anathor, the most beautiful and decadent of is artifacts, with reflexes of purple and blue lights, showing the favour of is god and the violent nature of is throne planet. In every battle, the crown was always the part that shined the most far more than the helmet, the armor, ornaments, jewels or the regal vest, becoming a greater becon of unholy light after every kill. At any apex of great light the crown reached, several of the enemies of the gallantry simply fallen to the ground in adoration of the corrupting magnificence of X’anathor or where consumed by minor aerial demons that birthed from that horrific beacon..... the power of that crown is immense..."
>>66075951I like it. I'd probably change speciality to cavalry instead of sonic weaponry.And I think putting down X'anathor as just owning the most of everything does little service to him being a Daemon Prince. To my understanding, as a DP he's probably going to be in one of maybe three states: either he's banished, and his strongest followers rise in his absence to lord themselves over the rest; he's in real-space, and has thus cowed his still-mortal followers into obedience, and is now leading his own little crusade until he gets shot again; or he's sitting on some little Daemon World somewhere on vacation, in which case he owns the whole planet anyway. He'd probably view all material holdings as his by default, and his followers holding them in his stead by his benevolence only. Just my two cents anyway.
>>66082908That's very true. He likely communicates through his court mages from the Warp. And when he returns to take part in whatever conquest before his banishment there are huge celebrations of debauchery. And it never says how long he can stay until banished so it could be from days to decades between banishment.
Do we have Tyranids or Dark Mechanus yet?I had an idea for a debris field. The idea is that the currents and eddies of the warp, as well as various gravitational forces in the sector lead to most debris gathering into a single Garbage Island like field. The central point of which is the carcass of a Tyranid Hive Ship, as well as various Xenos and Imperial ships that have been abandoned or left to drift in space.The result is a massive planetoid/debris field full of Xenotech, Archaeotech, and Tyranid biomass. Naturally, this is the perfect place for a bunch of Dark Mechanus and WarpSmiths to gather to plunder for loot, and perform their insane experimentsThe only surviving Tyranid in this field is a Genestealer Patriarch, unable to revive the Tyranid Hive Fleet by itself. However, thanks to the introduction of new organic life from the Mechanus, it starts a Genestealer Cult.So it's Mechanus vs. Cult in an asteroid field with a Necromunda-like theme.Thoughts?
>>66082566>armored soritas boot/punch that cracks an obviosuly mutant skull wrapped in flames ?That doesn't look like Sisters to me. Granted, these aren't your usual Sisters. How about a flaming fist?>In regard to the armor it could be very simple, on top of the white there could be some red, black and golden lines, and fewer but more significant verses always related to the impurity of mutants, the red lines for show purity of the human blood, the black ones for the dishonor they received long ago and lastly the gold lines for the endless loyalty to the imperium they show.Nice symbology there, I like.>>66082566>a golden helmet with three eyes slit, with one of their dreaded lances behind and the unholy crown of X’anathor on top of the helmet.Is that defined then? OK, I will.>"Ah the Golden Crown of X’anathor, the most beautiful and decadent of is artifacts, with reflexes of purple and blue lights, showing the favour of is god and the violent nature of is throne planet. In every battle, the crown was always the part that shined the most far more than the helmet, the armor, ornaments, jewels or the regal vest, becoming a greater becon of unholy light after every kill.

Maybe I play too much D&D, but should such an artifact have some more clearly defined power?
>>66082908>I'd probably change speciality to cavalry instead of sonic weaponry.Done.>>66083154>He'd probably view all material holdings as his by default, and his followers holding them in his stead by his benevolence only.That does makes sense, but it fucks up the feudal hierarchy. And ultimately, all of the fiefs are gifts from X'anathor in exchange for service/merit. What if I add that "the holdings of the slain are returned to X'anathor, to distribute as he sees fit"?>>66083332No we don't.And I like your asteroid field. The Venaro sector's "Sargasso Field", how does that sounds?
>>66084101>How about a flaming fist ?Could do. I put boot too mostly for avoid to be similar to the one of the imperial fist. But it s a Soritas one so it s shouldn t be a problem in the first place.>Is that defined then?If no one steps in and say they don t like it , and offer another symbol i think we can go with it.>Maybe I play too much D&D, but should such an artifact have some more clearly defined power ?Probably. I have write that the crown manifest power during battles and the power become ever greater after each kill. When it reaches an apex the beacon of unholy light probably corrupt too much the near weaker minds and they fall in adoration to X’anathor, instead others that are still near and can resist this corruption, but don t have any warp protection are assaulted by minor aerial demons (of slaanesh of course; gas like) that are born from the unholy light of the crown.We can change it or give it other types of powers. Stronger ones or lesser ones.
>>66084201I'm all for it. As long as we can get some Bio-engineering Insane Admechs who make Daemon Engines out of Tyranid Parts, SoulGrinder 'nids, and Cyber-Nid Genestealers, I'm happy.
So what weapon should X'anathor use? I think a sword is the best option. >[Insert] is the blade of X'anathor the Shining. It is either his original Legion issued blade corrupted by the ruinous powers over the millennia or a commissioned piece from the Dark Mechanicus.>Unlike most Daemon weapons the blade is quite mundane looking, keeping the appearance of the swords issued by the III Legion long ago with the golden Aquila Palatine handguard and violet handle with gold pommel and dark purple horsehair tassle>The blade itself is mirrored and polished to perfection without o glimpse of wear and tear even after hours of slaughtering foes
>>66085876How about 'Mirrorshade' for the name of the sword?
>>66085876>The Shrieking Lances are a weapon unique to the Gallantry. Based on stolen and reverseengineered Eldar sonic weaponry, substituting the wraithbone for a fleshier warp-metal. Theseweapons vibrate with excitement at the prospect of shattering anything and anyone. Upon hitting a foe, the Lances not only inflict pain but all types of sensations: fear, pleasure and even happiness are possible. The High King himself wields the original Lance, an Eldar Vibro Cannon fused to a bound demon.We did give him a lance for is first weapon. I would suggest a firearm for secondary, but a sword can do too.
>>66085967Forgot abot that. Maybe combine them?>The lance is a spire of polished/mirrored silver that shows the tortured souls bound within it to those with Witch Sight
>>66085214>As long as we can get some Bio-engineering Insane Admechs who make Daemon Engines out of Tyranid Parts, SoulGrinder 'nids, and Cyber-Nid Genestealers, I'm happy.That sounds great.>>66084925>We can change it or give it other types of powers. Stronger ones or lesser ones.I don't think this is necessary, what you suggest seems quite good.>>66085876>>66085946>>66085967>>66086205X'anathor's lance was added by me without anyone else thinking of anything. You guys change it if you want, I'll then rewrite that section. I personally liked >>66086205's idea.
>>66086695I'm still putting forward the name Mirrorshade.
>>66085946Yeah, that sounds pretty good to me.
>>66086978>>66087961>>66088219Ok, MIrrorshade it is.But is it a sword or a lance? What are its powers?
>>66089626I think it should be a sword. As for powers, I think that being struck with the blade should cause innumerable sensations ranging from pain and sadness to pleasure and euphoria.
>>66089692>I think it should be a sword. Ok one for sword.>As for powers, I think that being struck with the blade should cause innumerable sensations ranging from pain and sadness to pleasure and euphoria.The lances already do that.
>>66089266How could one adapt this to the Venaro sector?
>>66089719>>66089692I like the Lance better, but that's just because I'll be designing it, and I have an idea already
>>66089802Go ahead, show us this idea.
>>66089692X'anathor can have both the lance and the sword. I don t see why he can t have both.
>>66089719Why not both?
>>66091094Because a particular sword which does the same thing a bunch of lances does, does not seem worthy of being mentioned. It needs an edge.
>>66091246then i vote for lance.
>>66090555Rough Sketch, but here you go. I'm thinking four faces on 4 mirrors at the base of the lance head: Anger, Ecstasy, Agony, and Mirth(Smugness)
>>66091597So it'll actually be fairly oversized for a Lance. Also, much more Tech look to it, and the faces will be more Daemonic in nature. I'm thinking that He's going to be either a Terminator or a Primaris in size, in order to make the Lance look more fitting. What's his mount and what does he look like, because right now all I can picture is Raoh from FOTNS, and a Daemon-Horse to match
>>66091597Nice.>>66092161Well, he is a Daemon Prince, so his size and appearance can be quite something. He wears armor, has three eyes but one is missing an eyeball. He rides a Heldrake. I see him as a big Archaon on power armor.
>>66092161>>66092312size i honestly see as being a case of >the bigger the betterhe's a daemon prince that rides a goddamned heldrake after all. I can't see him being a marinelet

Imagine that a mek put him there like they usually do with grots in Killa Kans.
Also thinking of the Order of [REDACTED] acquiring traits of the Order of Santiago and the Camino de Santiago to complement their nazi traits. Including pic related, the emblem of the order.>Their greatest triumph was recovering a sacred relic. >Their most holy relic is the writings of a saint.>The sisters largely hold their homeworld at an arms distance, including the smaller settlement dotting the surface, seeing themselves as being above the world they inhabit, and have minimal influence in the operation of the Planet as a result. However, though they may have little influence on their world, the wield a disproportionate, amount of influence off-world, due to the relationships the have with the local naval battlefleet.I'm thinking that the sisters constantly escort and inspect pilgrimages going along the Apophian Way, a network of warp routes leading to the holy writings they recovered. Said writings might concern the topic of purity, and be the basis of their ideology.
>>66092624Probably at least 10 ft min>>66093803That could tie in those rolls nicely, he's likely gunning to get a Riptide or bigger one day for maximum big>>66094145I like it all especially the pilgrimage
>>66094145I do like that symbol.The escort thing would make sense of how they have friends in the Navy as well.
>>66094188>>66094145>>66094145Ideas I had:>The relic is a massive Gene-Codex. It was written by the Saint Alcantáros, a pious man obsessed with the purity of Mankind. Including Admech data-looms, DNA samples from the Age of Strife and notes said to have originated from the Emperor’s laboratories, it supposedly details the template of the perfect human being, free of physical, mental or spiritual taint. After exhaustive testing, the Sisters arrived at the conclusion that few, if any, humans of the current age are up to the standards set by the relic. This began their self-imposed mission of breeding the perfect human.>The sisters constantly escort and inspect pilgrimages going along the Apophian Way. They gene-screen the pilgrims, crew members and passengers, sequestering those that fit their criteria for experimentation and further breeding.
>>66095071I think we have a winner folks. Though I imagine if word ever got out about it the Inquisition would be on it like flies to cow piesThey probably made a 'sanitized' version to present to everyone else to hide the original
>>66095071Now that's some good shit.>>66095701Yeah, I can't imagine them just telling anybody about this.
>>66093803That does make an awful lot of sense.Hear me out, what if he has plans to loot a Titan one day? It doesn't get much bigger than that.

>>66099620I believe those ideas were from the last thread, regarding the Sisters: -The Staatpolize is an internal police force which watches over all, sisters and Zwangarbet alike.-Every year, the sisters execute pogroms over the population of Apophis II, executing all which don't pass their standards of human purity. That is the final exam of the newly-inducted sisters. Those that fail this become Zwangarbet, failed aspirants which perform all non-militant labor.-When purging planets, the sisters abduct both boys and girls deemed pure enough and induct them into their education and breeding programs. -Some say they use vitae womb techniques to achieve the required number of perfect sisters.-They perform experiments on both humans and abhumans, in labor camps in Apophis II.-They are constantly engaged in purges of imperial populations considered tainted or imperfect, seeking to create living space for the products of their breeding programs. These purges often include labor programs in which the imperfect populations die from exhaustion and hunger building settlements and cathedrals for the coming immigrants. There are a number of deserted planets full of grand cities and gigantic temples, just waiting for citizens.-They bring the humans that meet their standards to Apophis II. There such people are experimented upon, tested to exhaustion, Many of the survivors are moved to the planet’s surface, condemned to a lifetime of environmental trials and forced asceticism. Despite this, their descendants are building communities and even a few towns. The Sisters monitor those.I plan to make a proper pdf for them now. Also reading up on the Santiago Order and related materials.

With this dark events, several defense guns where sabotaged giving plenty of space for the heretics for deploy. They soon attacked our cities and temples laying destruction and death everywhere, but their first objective was the Cathedral of the Unnamed Scout a simple but beautiful building in honor of that great hero. A great battle ensure for capture it, our numbers dwindle and many civilians offer their life for protect it even if they sacrificed themself.

At that moment, i abandoned Cyvus remaining with a group of followers in the rubble of our cities. My mind and heart where divided, i couldn t hate him for wanting to save at all costs the population and i know that each time is hand was to send a group of tributes, or destroy a face of a saint with a chisel is heart was breaking.

The Lie lasted for 10 years, the planet had become like a cattle farm of an agri world, but our people where the cattle. Artellian added more conditions and demanded more tributes during this years to our Planet Cardinal for save is people, mining the rocks with barely any ore or value under the vaults and grow crops in the terrain now free of rubble. From Pivan and the pilgrims that arrived on the planet unknown of the danger, the Golden Prince was taking ludicrous amounts of loots.

We breached in the vault under the cathedral, reached the communication hall and send all the messages we could from there. What followed after was the Massacre of Pivan, the heretics attacked all the vaults and fortifications, slaughtering anyone that resisted and making slaves of the rest. Cyvus was impaled on a crude iron star of chaos and left here as a symbol of their power. Then the heretics of the Golden Prince abandoned the planet, not interested in taking all the few remaining survivors, for the risk of fight the incoming imperial forces. I was one of them.
