Rolled 15 (1d100)>>39322689It means they can see fine in the dark, but they don't like the sun. They're even more like vampires than their progenitors.>>39322718Only the best thing ever.
>>39322718Also, I think we skipped chapter demeanor.

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>39322887Ah, okay.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>39322887Are we cyborg vampires or FABULOUS~ cyborg vampires?
>>39322254That scene would be quite epic. Imagine GW intends to revive the emperor. Only the custodes and most loyal are gathered before his throne, then they start to pose call him to awaken. We can still dream.
>>39322891>>393229171WE ASSUMED DIRECT CONTROL OVER THE SHITTY SUB-HUMAN NOT CYBOVAMPIRES AND THEIR CITIES.>>39322923WE'RE WHATEVER THE FUCK WE WANT TO BE.1D10 FOR CHAPTER DISORGANISATION
>>39322891>>39322917Well, only tribe people live there anyways.>>39322923And we live on a barely hospitable ice world, cold as we are. Our chapter must be pretty creepy to outsiders.I also think they have Scions of Mars because once the feral aspirants where inducted they were all 'ooh, technology good.'
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>39322956We're sounding kind of like Loyalist night lords...
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>39322956
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>39322956Disorganized! Screw the rules!
>>39322956>>39322923 Fuck that, we're technology worshipping vampires from an iceball. Let's be Draugr.
>>39322967That's the chapter's secret. Only the Chapter Master and those of our 'progenitors' are privy to that.
>>39322967>>393229706DIVERGENT CHAPTER. FUCK THE CODEX UP TO A POINT.NOW, DO WE GO SHOTTY-SHOTTY OR PUNCHY-PUNCHY? 1D10 FOR COMBAT DOCTRINE
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>39323003inb4 shock and terror
>>39322887Wait, we hate the light, and live on an ice world. Did we move to fucking pluto?

Rolled 3 (1d100)>>39323051
>>39322992I take it back, since being vampires would make it petty obvious where our gene seeds came from. Oh well.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>39323051some sort of freeze ray?

Rolled 70 (1d100)>>39323112whoops

I guess we're more like Mr. Freeze. A TRAGIC and HEARTBREAKING back story, now bound in armor and blasting the shit out of everything with advanced technology but it's okay because we have a backstory.
>>39323058>>393230742WE ARE TRADITIONAL AS FUCK. WE USE TRADITIONAL WEAPON. BUT LET'S SNOWFLAKE IT UP A BIT AND SAY THAT WE FAVOUR BOLTERS WITH SPECIAL COLD AMMO THAT GIVES FROSTBITE WHEN WE HIT SHIT WITH BULLETS.ALSO GIVES VAMPIRE AIDS (NOT ACTUALLY SERIOUS OR IS IT?????????????????????)WHAT ARE OUR BELIEFS?

>>39323324We are BEST CHAPTER
>>39323342We gotta be all about dat Mr Freeze. You know it must be true.Except with added vampire.
Colours I suggest a nice light almost pale blue on a slightly darker blue. Something that lets us blend against the worlds surroundings when looked at a distance. The Snow Fallen. Heraldry is snowflake with a meteor tail.
>>39323342Something to do with our yeti riding skills?
I wanna roll up a Squat Clan next
>>39322254WE WERE MADE FOR A CRUSADE, CHAPTER MADE IN 34TH MILLENNIUM. OUR GRANPAS ARE BLOOD ANGELS AND WE HAVE OVERSENSITIVE EYES, WE SEE GOOD IN DARKNESS BUT NEED TO WEAR SHADES FOR OUTSIDE. WE'RE SCIONS OF MARS AND OUR LEGENDBRO IS MASTER CHAPTER WHO KICKED ORK ASSES SO HARD HE'S THE VOLDEMORT TO THEM NOW. WE LIVE ON FERAL ICE WORLD AND WE ASSUMED DIRECT CONTROL OVER THE SUB-HUMAN NOT CYBERVAMPIRES. WE DROP POD INTO BATTLE AND RITE FUCKING YETIS OUT OF THE DROP PODS. WE HONOUR OUR ANCESTORS TOO BUT WHO CARES. WE RECENTLY GOT OUR SHIT BEAT IN BUT NOT TOO HARD, OUR BUTT-CHEEKS WILL HEAL IN A DECADE OR SO.

I DUN GIVE A SHIT I WILL MOSTLY LURK NOW FOR I HAVE FINISHED MY JOB.
We're frozen blood angel vampires with added tech.We are the Snowflakes.
>>39323400We shall be known as the "Wendigo-gos"
>>39323423warcry of "wake me up before you wendi-go go"
>>39323399That or the Hive fleet fighting our marines.
>>39323400I know the perfectchapter name, and a perfect warcry."What killed the Greenskins? The Ice Wraiths!"
>>39323400>oversensitive eyes>lives in an ice world>actually a descendant from winged angels of war>hates bug aliens>takes over without anyone having a say in it.Holy shit I found our chapter master.
>>39323437That's our chapter battle hymn.
>>39323517I support this with an erection made of diamonds
>>39323517Yes. Yes yes. Very yes. Much yes. Now we just need to make his name pseudo-latin. Riddickus longdickius or something I don't know.
>>39323492someone get a drawfag to draw a mariene riding a yeti out of a drop pod yelling this
>>39323517yes Yes YES!MY DICK IS CEREMITE!
so why exactly do these guys get along so well with the arbites?
>>39323570We are the law of our planet, and we keep the piece, so we have much in common with the Arbites. We work together to enforce the law on the planets we captureBasically, The Ice Wraiths are Batman and the Arbites are Commissioner Gordon
So are we Ice Wraiths, Snowflakes, or Snow Fallen?
OP HEREVAMPIRE RIDDICKS WITH STEALTH DROP PODS AND STEALTH YETIS BEASTIAL COMPANIONS CHAPTER IS TINGLING MY BINGLE IN WAYS I NEVER THOUGHT WERE POSSIBLE.ACTUAL RIDDICK AS CHAPTER MASTER.
>>39323633As the anon who suggested Snow Fallen, I change my vote to Ice Wraiths
>>39323633I'd say Ice Wraiths, mainly because it fits with the Undead/Vampire theme and because >>39323492 is so catchyPlus Snow Fallen will just get us into too many tussles with the Dark Angels
>>39323605>Rookie Arbites joins Ice Wraiths on a mission>Cult sacrifices self to summon Daemon Prince>Ice Wraith vets slay daemon>Arbites is pushed off building, dies>In front of Planetary governor>Thefuckisthis.jpg>Governor goes mad>Life fuck man, calm down>Attempts to chase Ice Wraiths off planet>Holds funeral for his daughter as a trap>Ice Wraith watches from the shadows>Notices the markings>Governor sacrifices himself to summon Daemon princeHoly fuck yes
>>39323686Shoulda included pic.
>>39323686Holy shit these guys are awesome. Get the writefags on this.
>>39323672Ice Wraiths sounds good
OP HERE AGAIN.THIS IS GUD ENOUGH TO GET 1D4CHAN PAGE. SOMEONE BOTHER WITH THAT I AM SUPER FUCKING BUSY ATM.
>>39323744Seconded because fuck having my own opinions.
>>39323633As the guy who said Snowflakes, Ice Wraiths is a better, and more sensible name.
>>39323754We're agreed then. Ice Wraiths.WHO KILLED THE GREENSKINS?
>>39323744LET'S THINK PICTURES FIRST. Like, what color armor to we wear? And which helmet best has snow goggles?
Does anyone want to make some specific Tyranid rivals for these guys? We can start right now.Also, I suggest red (because blood angle descents) and light blue (because frozen ice world theme) for their colors.
>>39323767The same thing that happens to everything else!
>>39323784Toss in some white because yetis.
>>39323784I'd like to think they're got this cold war (no pun intended) with a sect of Tyranids on their planet. They root them out and put them to the flame, they hibernate until they've regained strength to reemerge.
let the colour scheme arguments begin.
>>39323772Obviously corvus armour for the enhanced sensory array for vision in blinding snowstorms
>>39323784Hive Fleet Mi-Go.
>>39323811White trimming would make it look nicer but otherwise pic related
>>39323806Wait, is it the tyranids, or the Ice Wraiths who hibernate? Because it could be either.
>>39323828>Hive Fleet Mi-Go.Eldritch Tyranids...fuck this is just getting better!
>>39323811>>39323834This. This very much.
>>39323811Add a little red.
>>39323811>>39323834>>39323849Let's do something unique as well. Company or squad markings someplace unusual would be cool. right Side of helmet maybe? in white or red?
>>39323844Both. Occasionally they wake up to find they've been snuggling all winter and back away in horror and confusion then pretend it never happened.They can't even meet each other's eyes on the battlefield and find other things to shoot and wat when that happens.
>>39323844Both. We can't regain our full strength because it's a back and forth with the dug-in Tyranids. We find them, ambush and put them to flame. A year later they reemerge with greater numbers and force us to turtle and regain our strength. Our home force is in a constant battle to protect the planet of Frosttham.
some sort of tyranids hibernating under the ice in the frozen antarctic?
>>39323845Not just eldritch. Mi-go is the Tibetan name for Yeti.
>>39323754"Snowflakes" can still be the derogatory name used by the enemies/rivals of the Chapter.
>>39323862each company has a glyph and/or colour or something and it's on the helmet on the side?
>>39323876FUZZY FUCKING TYRANIDS!!! YES ON EVERY LEVEL
>>39323876>Mi-go is the Tibetan name for YetiI did not know this. This makes me incredibly fucking happy
>>39323880I like this idea.
>>39323896Makes sense to adapt to a cold planet by growing fuzz. Likely a fat layer too.
>>39323892Yeah that sounds good
>>39323896>>39323909>>39323901>>39323876Hold the fucking phone. Do we....Do we fucking tame fuzzy Tyranids from Hive Fleet Mi-Go as our mounts?
>>39323924nah, it's just a coincidence, they're named mi-go because of the fuzzy resemblance to our yeti
>>39323924Yes. So much yes.
OP HERE YET AGAIN FOR POSSIBLY LAST TIME.TAKING A TRIP SO I CAN ROLL UP TYRANIDS FOR YOU GUYS LATER AND MAKE IT FULL CANON.ALSO BECAUSE I AM INSECURE LITTLE SHIT.
>>39323933Talk about self degradation.

>>39323977see>>39323970We can have a Terminator Squad called the Sanguine Remhoraz, The Chapter Master's personal company can be the Blood Shades, Also a whole company of Techmarines called the Glacial Bloodtects, and our Librarianscan be called Blizzard Letters (from the phrase "blood letting")>>39323999He probably meant something like an ice blue or a teal.
>>39323724>Cell I18 on Planet Excavo, Brother Chaplain Juda of the Frozen Redcap Company reporting.>I remember it like it was yesterday. I am aware of the error, considering the incident occured 72h00 ago. >A group of Tzeentch cultists under the crow's eye were gathered in an upper hive roof top. A couple of rookie arbites, including private Lawonda joined us - according to our insider, the ritual wasn't due for another week, and we were expecting to make the bust there and then.>Upon clearing most of the gathering, the two arbites moved up the stairs. As they did, the roof crumbled - and with it, our contact with the squad was lost.>I have not heard accounts of what occured on that roof, but I saw the chaos spawn - and the governor's daughter - through the windows beneath.>I proceeded without telling my brothers - we needed to focus on the mission, and kill whatever was on that roof. When we encountered the prince, it fell under our assault. We were not without casualties.>Brothers Julius, Dicaprus and Marcus were lost in the fighting. Brother Mikael has lost both legs - replacement commissions were sent to central 0h20 after the fall of the Daemon Prince, as of yet unnamed.>After this, fellow Arbites and planetary defence forces opened fire upon us under the order of the planetary governor. We retreated, wanting to keep allied casualties to a minimum and not wanting to engage upon the arbites.>We have since moved the bulk of our forces on the hive to a more elusive location. The funeral of the two rookies who were taken out of action is in 0w3days. >If I can just explain to the governor what happened, we might be able to salvage the system. We will not allow this planet to rot to monsters we've worked tirelessly to slay.>Brother Juda out. Stay Frosty, Brother.
don't know who appropriate it is but I have the mental image of our chaplains having big moose antlered skull masks, bigass fur pelt optional
Please tell me we already have a 1d4chan page. This shit needs to be saved
>>39323924If so... Okay. Okay. Let's think about this. It's heresy but I want to go with it for a second here. So, our home world -possibly Frosttham- was bitching cold all the time, so while the tyranids were okay with it in space, they also were used to scorching temperatures up there. With always coldness, they settled down for a little bit on the surface to mutate and adapt. This is when the faction we're generally fighting obtained their dense fur coats and other low temperature heat saving mutations.One splinter however fucked up. A bit too far away for synapses to link up, a bit too cold and they mutated themselves weird. Accidentally lobotomising themselves with incomplete mutations. Okay, no big deal. It happens to the best of swarms. That's how biology works. Usually, the swarm just eats the biomass and does it again properly, unfortunately, the Ice Wraiths found the dumb fuzzynids first. By the time the Wraiths worked out what they were sitting on, they felt kind of dumb about purging their friendly vaguely intelligent xeno chums and just sort of forgot about it.The Ice Wraiths are fine about purging anything, but if that anything just wants to eat your foes and will let you purge everything else better...
>>39324049Not yet, I don't think.
>>39324048Nah, they'd be a weird human-esque skull mask with Vampire Fangs and antlers affixed to the top.Or your idea, but Vampire Fangs are mandatory.
>>39323970What would our chapter symbol be?
>>39324103snowflake in the back layerwings in the middle layerfront layer skull with fangs wearing a deerskin with antlers
>>39324103A blood-dripping hunk of ice. Or a bloody snowflake.Or a blindfolded vampire skull with a glacier breaking forth from the cranium
>>39324091>Vampire Fangs are mandatory.agreed
>>39324130The deerskin is overdoing it. How about a male deer skull on a snowflake? Off-white on black snowflake. The skull could have fangs
>>39324151The bloody snowflake sounds nice.
>>39324163Instead of horns the skull has wings.
Ok So Here are the two symbol options so far that we like>Snowflake w/ deer skull/wings/fangs>Bloodied SnowflakeWhy don't we combine them?
>>39324226So... a bloodied snowflake w/ deer skull/wings/fangs?
>>39324243Yeah I think that hits on the main points we have so far
I vote this to be our battle hymnhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g95U2WhuIR8
>>39324130>>39324243we can skip the wings, i was just thinking about them to remember the blood angel origin of our chapter
WE NEED A DRAWFAG!!!! or at least someone semi-competent with photoshop or something
>>39324273I'm also in favour of skipping the wings, I think they'll make it a bit too busy
>>39324273If we use the blood drop from their symbol instead that might help evoke the blood angel origin.
This seriously does need a 1d4chan page.
>Chapter Fortress Monastery: The Rime KeepAt first this monestary looks as though it were carved from the Ice, that is only partially true. While the outside is covered in a thick layer of ultra-compacted ice (mixed with ceremite) that is nearly three meters thick Approx 9-10 feet for my fellow Americans, the underneath is a strong fortress like any other, though the archetexture is designed in an Ancient Imperial causing it to resemble some twisted castle from Caliban, complete with intricate balconies, butresses, and gargoyle like fixtures. All of these accessories holds some for of technological device,whether it be a security camera, gun turret, missile battery, or other such thing. The Techmarines and Techpriests work tirelessly to keep the fortress maintained and to repair it from the near infinite blizzard that ravages the surrounding lands. Inside the fortress is a dark and twisting labyrinth, almost to dark for normal humans to navigate at all. Of course this is no problem for the Ice Wraiths who's eyes can cut through the near absolute darkness with ease. PArt of the Ice Wraith training is to force them into random rooms of the Monastery and force them to find their way without the aid of a fellow brother. The fortress is also filled with all manner of secret passages, sealable doors, deadends, and rooms rigged with explosives and other traps in case of a siege.>>39324226I kinda prefer the second one of>>39324151maybe combine the two>>39324192>nightlord detected
>>39324306do we even need to bother with the blood angels ties, not all chapters do it
>>39324332It was just a suggestion. In the end, we need to go with what works for the chapter.
>>39324259Hard to be a hymn if there's no singing, Unless you mean all the Ice Wraiths sing it A Capella?
>Ice vampiresI can't believe we didn't go with White Walkers.
>>39324327> Part of the Ice Wraith training is to force them into random rooms of the Monastery and force them to find their way without the aid of a fellow brother.Now this? This is truly the epitome of space marine training.>The fortress is also filled with all manner of secret passages, sealable doors, deadends, and rooms rigged with explosives and other traps in case of a siege.Especially considering this.
>>39324367We went with Wendigos and Riddik, which are superior.
So do we have an agreed-upon color scheme?
>>39324364>all the Ice Wraiths sing it A CapellaThis is a thing we must do.
>>39324400I think we decided on>>39323806With White Rims on the pauldrons. I would also like white knee-guards personally
>>39324417Shit linked wrong one. meant >>39323811
>>39324378Yeah, basically I decided to, in keeping with the Vampire theme, make the Fortress into pic related but with tons more ice and technology.No problem for a Chapter of Vampire Riddicks to navigate I hope.>>39324415Lets agree it to be canon. This Chapter is some classy mofos
>>39324434There was mention of some red.
>>39324400just eyeballing here, but think these are pretty much the dominant colors
>>39324435>not I mean Castlevania in general, not just that particular one.>Hope you like Apothecaries hiding Combat Stim and medical caches in the walls
>>39324443Indeed there was but I'm not sure what was agreed upon? Maybe if we do >>39323862we do that in red?
>>39324456This looks quite workable.
>>39324456I am in accord with this notion
>>39324456I like this.Of course I would like the Optics to also be black and some of that red on the mouthpiece
>>39324456i'd still prefer a really dark blue for the armour like in >>39323811
So, a chapter that rides yetis out of drop pods, who train by navigating a labyrinth laden with lethal traps in the dark, who sing their hymn A Capella, and are basically the batman to the arbite's commisioner gordon? YES.
>>39324571Who's enemy is furry tyranids. Yup that about sums it up
>>39324571An thier Chapter MAster is Riddick and thier all a bunch of Ice Vampires.Also lets call those who fall to the Black Rage and Red Thirst Wendigos.
>>39324571I realy hope someone is working on 1d4chan page on this guys
>>39324593Reminds me.. >>39323933When are we rolling this shit? Is "later" an hour or two or ten minutes? >>39324611Why do good ideas keep happening?
>>39324611>Also lets call those who fall to the Black Rage and Red Thirst Wendigos.All the agreement. Ever.
>>39324415>Scouts are baritone/basses>Space Marines sing high parts because castrato
>>39324637I don't know. It's like we're being actually creative here.
>>39324617I don't think anyone is. Anyone? Anyone at all?
>>39324611>The Red WendigosThose who fall to the Black Rage are given extremely experimental stealth suits, such that they cause longterm damage to those that use them, and so degrade extremely quickly. They are then dropped into enemy fortresses/gun lines/strategic points of military power. They are let loose on them to cause fear and unrest amongst enemy troops. By weeks end, all know the howling of the wendigo's song means almost certain death.
>>39324637K I AM BACK HOW DO I CROSS QUOTE ACROSS THREADS SO I CAN LINK IT.
>>39324673Working on color scheme stillAnd dont have logo yet.Screencaping this anyway
>>39324703Jolly good show old boy.
Other chapters not only call them special snowflakes, but do so because they can't take fuzzynids seriously. The way they're often described makes them seem like fluffy, squidgy balls of inoffensive xeno mush, especially compared to "stock" tyranids and other space marine threats. They generally change their tune after being in an icy arena on the surface during a snowstorm with a Mi-Go actually tearing down in them.
Ok created a page. Doesn't have any content yet but a page now existshttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/IceWraiths
Ok for content in the page I need the things we rolled on the tables summarized so We can get started
>>39322254Jojo's bizzare astarture?
where do these results come from? is there a chapter generation page somewhere?
>>39324687pic related>>39324703I think we all agree that it must have a bloody snowflake>>39324751Personally I don't like the idea of raising or taming them. Rather just have them be a monster for the Wraiths to hunt down and devour as part of their initiation rites, where they must hunt one down, drag it back to the fortress, and devour every bit of it and drink its blood in front of the other marines.
So i was working on scheme and that shit brokeOuchKeep the thread alive for me guys
Working on 1d4chan page right now gents. Not gonna say I'm good at it but it exists and has some stuff on it
>>39324903This thread ain't going nowhere. We have hardcore fluff to discuss.
i don't know what to say to contribute to this beautiful thread, i'm still aroused because all of this and Riddick chapter master
>>39325012Rack your brain and get those creative juices flowing. Ask yourself questions about the Ice Wraiths and answer them here.
>>39324829Look on 1d4chan
>>39325051Lets talk about the Planet. We know its a Feral Ice World, so what kind of creatures dwell there?Who are the People?The Chapter rules over the people, so Are be basically Wallachian Royalty to them? Are they Slavs, Inuit, or Norse? How do they select people to join the Chapter?
>>39325051our librarians should use some sort of runefaggotry like space wolfs or they could be more unique, like using blood for rituals and calling forth on the spirits of the ice and such? i mean, that's barely heretic close to what the space furries do.
>>39325125I like the idea of blood rituals and magic
>>39325114Well, we know there are yetis and fluffy tyranids. There are probably a lot of ice biome creatures for the Ice Wraiths to hunt.I'd say the people are arranged in groups of nomadic tribes with different affiliations to a tribal leader who controls all the tribes in a single faction. These constantly conflicting tribes would have constant battles, allowing the Ice Wraiths to observe and then select the greatest young warriors of the tribes.
>>39325114I was thinking of some carnivorous moose like huge creature who would be one of the planet's most fearsome predators, in my head they look quite the badass.
>>39325125I dunno if that's SCIENCE enough. We're neglecting that side of them for ice and aliens. What do we do with Martian tech beyond shoving it in our faces and being machine men?
>>39325182We use it to hunt.
>>39325182Wicked deep snow adapted vehicles, the tech marines should be able to work something out due to so much tech we have here.
>>39325114I'd say we have a massive equatorial conifer forest that is a veritable rainforest for the planet. Get some close quarters combat in there. The ice at the polesnis goddamn extreme, low visibility and it even starts to hurt the marines after a few days. Underground and undersnow tunnels are the way to go up there.
>>39325138Blood on Ice is quite striking.
>>39325211What about our yetis? Do we give them some kind of mechanical armor?
>>39325114I would say Inuit/siberian would be fitting, as it IS a death world.As for creatures, we have yetis and fuzzy nids, but perhaps some moose/bear/yak hybrid pack animal would be fitting as a substitute for the Grox?
>>39325241YES YES YES YES YES YES
>>39325211Giant. Snow. Drills.Like reverse drop-pods, bursting from the ice and snow to vomit out marines onto the surface battlefields.Both 'nids and marines dig massive tunnel networks overnight and try to outflank the other or collapse their network.
>>39325114Depending on how huge is the planet i think there's space for more than one ethiny around, anon. But if we have to choose only one i'm taking Inuit of some Tibetan shit.
>>39325253>Like reverse drop-pods...My god. We use drop pods on a regular basis. This would be perfect.
>>39325114I'm just going to leave this here
>>39325253FUCKYESWay to spin the deep-strike, anon.
>>39325241IMPLANTS. Bone 'Ead mounts. Almost as smart as a feral ogryn. And like, lightning claws.
>>39325253Anon, i want to make sweet love with this idea, it fits perfectly!
>>39325284>>39325253So we burst from Giant snow drill reverse drop pods riding cyber enhanced yetis.
>>39325302SO GRIMDARK IT HURTS!
So, the yetis, are we thinking of them as beefy glacial monkeymen or wiry and sinewy, like in WHFB?
>>39325170Nah, remember that we're scions of Mars? Why not make the planet like a super teched up version of Russia or some other Slavic Nation? Huge Factories and Onion Dome Building all over while the lower class live in almost steampunk style houses beneath all the tech stuff, who speak of the wicked spirits who dwell outside the cities and practice superstitious rituals to ask the Emperor and his grim angels of the ice to help them.Basically Industrial Russia.Actually, I'm kinda reminded of the opening screen pan to this movie scene, except with emperor worship instead of whining about commies. https://youtu.be/u5EdfXPTllY plus it gives background in case someone wants to make a Rogue Trader from this planet>>39325253OH MAH GOSH THIS I AM SO HARD RIGHT NOW >39325273I was thinking pic related
>>39325333sorry, that last one was trying to quote>>39325273
>>39325253"As you know! Moast of oua battle brothars are shtehtioned in SNOW, Pruhpeared to deep strike! Oua perimeter has been pruhpeared in the even dat oua enehmies should be so bald and so foolish. We have plehced numerous beacons, allowing formuhltiple, simuln-tehneous and devashtehting defensive deep strikesThe Codecks astartees nehmes this maneuvah Steehl Claws. We will ascend upon the foe, we will ovawhelm them – we will leave nonealive! Meanwhile oua ground fawses will ensue the full defense of oua headkwatersWe are the spehss mahrens! WE ARE THE EMPRA’S FUREH!" They also work with most soil. So the Wraiths can burst up in the middle of all kinds of xeno bases with "SURPRISE, MOTHERFUCKERS" from every vox.
>>39325333Aren't we on a feral world though?
A possible idea for recruitment? Seeing as we are Mr. Freezebatman who are cozy with the Arbites, what if we take our members from the prisoners seeking redemption? The Arbites weed out the runts and pick out some choice subjects for us and tell them to walk out in the the waste and survive if they want to earn their freedom. We waite and watch and observer them and if they survive and make their way to our fortress we snatch them up and begin the process.
>>39325364Yeah for all the filthy not-space-marines. They don't know about all that stuff
>>39325341>THE FLUFFE TYRANIDS MI-GO ARE KRAKEN HIVE FLEET SPLINTER. THERE'S NOT WHOLLA LOT OF THEM, PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THAT TAKING BACK SOME SHIT FROM OLD FLEET DIDN'T REQUIRE LOTS OF MANPOWER. BUT THOSE THAT ARE ARE WHAT YOU CAN CALL A GODZILLA IF IT HAD FUR AND OVERRUNNING SHIT WITH MASSIVE SIZES IS THEIR WAY TO GO. ALSO PARASITIC BROODFATHER IS THEIR ALLY, NO CLUE WHAT THAT IS BUT FUCK WHATEVER IT IS.>CAPTCHA TOLD ME TO PICK STEAKS. QUITE FITTING.BASE TO WORK ON FOR OUR FLUFFY COCKROACHES. ALSO PREPARE TO ARCHIVE THE THREAD.
>>39325368As a possible secondary method of recruitment, to supplement our ranks, I approve of this idea.
Whats our battle cry friends? Have we decided on one?
>>39325333Dieselpunk Russians?I like this idea. Works well with the Drill Pods. >>39325364Well, we gotta have a Monastery or fortress of some kind. A city is gonna build up around that eventually. The rest of the planet can be feral as fuck outside our walled city.
>>39325364Good point. Still, it seems silly that Scions of Mars wold leave a feral world completely feral.All I'm saying is that ther ar only a few small amounts of civilization. The rest of the place is inhospitable and covered in all manner of carnivourous monsters.Also Giant Swim/Burrowing Ice Whales living and swimming underneath the ice who wake up every 10 years or so to feed.
>>39325344Shit, how about one-person surprise-pods for our Red Wendigos?And what with being a freezing high-tech deathworld, i might be getting a little bit to weeaboo, but maybe draw some inspiration from Punk Hazard or Karakuri Island from one piece?Tech-modded animals running rampant because of some rogue Admech guy that wanted to be left alone.
>>39325418Nah look at the earlier posts. Our fortress monestary is a massive glacier-thing
>>39325414WHO KILLED THE GREENSKINS? THE ICE WRAITHS!
>>39325449Don't forget it's also dark as all hell and full of deadly traps.
I'm already excited thinking about the famous brothers of the chapter, like Sargeant Brother Ivan, who managed to 1v1 a tyranid hive guard with a power hammer and dragged the corpse of the beast back to the fortress for shits and giggles.
Being a Blood Angels descendant, do Ice Wraiths still have the Death Company? If yes, how do they use them? Throw them on yetis and go on suicide charges, or what?If no, why not? HAVE THEY FOUND THE CURE IN FUZZY TYRANID BLOOD?
>>39325449....maybe the city could be inside the glacier? No.. No... That's too silly. >>39325446This I kind of like. Increases the ferocity of the planet and plays into the "we do science to stuff" side.
>>39325483"Keep What You Kill."
>>39325484Just call it Yeti Company or something like that
>>39325399Possible inspiration for armor sans the colors?
>>39325484We should do. Throw them out in drill pod yeti charges.
>>39325495Actually that kinda works. All the tech is actually inside a massive glacier at the south pole and the world doesn't know about it except those who live there
>>39325484>HAVE THEY FOUND THE CURE IN FUZZY TYRANID BLOOD?No, but they have found the tyranids blubber layer makes FANTASTIC crackling. Seriously, they're really tasty now. >>39325518So wait. Cyborg Vampire Space Marines with ice magic who live in a secret highly advanced city under the polar ice cap who fight evil alien yetis.Did I get everything right?
>>39325509Go away Black Legion. You shall not corrupt this chapater>>39325549>Did I get everything right?Don't forget thier monastery is basically Castlevania and thier Chapter Master is Riddick
>>39325541The city around the fortress monastery is not the fortress monastery itself.Like how there's always a town under Dracula's castle. Space Marines just build things bigger so you get a dieselpunk pseudoRussian city instead of a Transylvanian village.
>>39325572And that they use Drill pods to launch charges on the backs of cyber enhanced yetis.
>Frozen planet>Hate nids
Gentlemen and Gentlemen:I present the 1d4chan page: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/IceWraithsNow with 500% more actual content
Say, what are we calling this ice planet?
I don't like the battlecry
All I can imagine right now is stuffing tranquilized yetis into a drop-pod, then right before it lands it's injected with a cocktail that neutralizes the tranqs and sends it into a rage.What's worse than a yeti showing up in a drop pod? An armored yeti that's on adrenaline.Hell, throw them in with the Death Company if you want. There's be enough rip and tear there to make Khorne blush.
Due to our glorious Chapter Master our scouts should be versed in the sweet art of knife (and other sorts of weapons) fight.Like getting mad skeelz of 320 different ways of killing a hormagaunt with a tea cup.What do you guys think?
>>39325624I think yes. Scouts would feature prominently in the chapter.
>It should be noted that, instead of conventional Flamer, the Ice Wraiths utalize the blueprints of an STC they wound during one of thier missions>colloqually known as the "Freezer" this weapon contains liquid hydrogen thats been contained and compacted soo tightly that is gushes forth and instantly freezes most all who come in contact. This weapon has been found to be especially useful against the likes of Orcs and Tyranids. The Magos and Techmarines loyal to this chapter guard the secrets of its creation well and are unlikey to share it anytime soon.
How do you like this?
>Interestingly enough, thier assault marines tend to favor short weapons over the traditional chain weapons and thunder hammers. Each assault marine and Scout carries what can best be described as a power-trenchknife, though combat machetes are also common and Terminators are fond of Chainfists. To an Ice Wraith, close combat should be swift, efficient, and using as little force and energy as possible. The Chapter Master himself uses a pair of curved power blades of odd shape, which he claimed to have made from tusks of an Orc Warboss he killed with his own hands.
>>39325692I think it fights with the Ice Wraiths pretty well.
>>39325692eyes need to be blackdont forget, light hurts our eyes
>>39325689How did this idea take so long?
>>39325710maybe red pipes instead of red eyes?
>>39325692Here is my version
>>39325741I like this one
>>39325692What if we swapped the red and the white? I'm not certain, but it might work.
>>39325723We were focusing on drill pods and cyber yetis. You know, starting big and working down.
>>39325692Brother, that pattern is looking good, great work!Keep what you kill.
>>39325741I think this version works much better. Its got a great palette and uses its color contrast well.
>Adeptus Arbites prison on home world>Initiation rite involves releasing prisoners into the wilderness to be hunted by the feral, unarmed neophytes.>During planetary invasions the Ice Wraith battle-barges launch unique terraforming devices into the atmosphere that blot out the sun and freezes the planet over before podding in for the kill.
>>39325724So, every marine looks like this?
>>39325253Aren't these already a Cannon thing? The Imperial Termite?Though we probably need our own pattern.
>>39325757Btw, what shall be our glorious (and sanctified in blood and ice) drill pods nicknames?
>>39325776Yes. Always yes.
Ice wraith without armor
>>39325785Icy Fangs of Sanguiniusor Ice Fangs for short
>>39325785Something Caskets? Play up that vampire bit with singleman pods too.
>>39325741This is a pretty good use of red to contrast with the blue and white of the model.
>>39325741Murica Marines?I don't know man, i dislike the red wings and soft armor.
This thread has reached too many levels of awesome
How do we get on with other organisations? Are the "Snowflakes" liked or respected by other Astartes for ambushing and digging? Making friends with the law normies?The AdMech presumably love us, and likely Ordos Xenos via Deathwatch. But the Administrum? Rogue Traders? IG? Sororitas? >>39325723I mentioned Mr Freeze before all a'ya!Okay, grumble over.
>>39325798"LET THEM FEEL THE FANGS OF OUR BELOVED PRIMACH, BRETHREN!" This erection will not go away easily.Well, now i shall go to class, i'll post some more from there.I'm the blood magic, carnivorous mooses and knife fighting scouts, btw.It's been such a wonderful thread, thank you brothers, and keep what you kill.
>>39325839now if only we could get someone with decent editing skills to swap those wings with a snowflake
>>39325839This looks like something we could all agree on.
Ok quick question:Who rides the yetis? Veterans? Have instead of bikes? Death company?Also lets put the colour scheme thing to rest and get a consensus so i can take the final one and put it on the page
>>39325776We already got Castlevania and Nid Hunting. During which parts of the training would all of these be?>>39325817>Ice Wraith Acolyte>>39325837Ren Wings, veins, and mouth to honor Sanguinius. White and Silver for the snowy lands of ther homeworld. I chose the blue because it was a better contrast, though I can make it darker
>>39325881Everyone rides the yetis, mate. It's a staple of our chapter. How enhanced the yetis are is more based on who rides them.
>>39325846Well, if we went with the whole "blood and ice-magic" for our librarians, i'd say the Sororitas hates us, and likely some of the more puritan Inquisitors.And i'm ok with that, to many homebrews have a covenant shoehorned in.
>>39325879nah, just as many people like the other design as well.
>>39325902got it. Makes sense. SHould each marine be responsible for raising his own yeti then? could be an initiation rite along with gettign the black carapace to go and capture a young one?
>>39325912Take a Sororita, drop her in the middle of the icy desert, let her fight her way trough the 'nids hordes with her will and melta alone and then she can talk some shit.
>>39325927Along with training in the halls of their fortress and hunting the local fauna, yes.Keep what you kill.
>>39325885Oh, with the symbolism explained it somehow looks a lot better. But yeah, i think a darker blue would be better.
>>39325782...huh, so they are. I guess yeah, we have our own variants. Maybe they've fallen out of favour, but we went into Termites in a big way. Have their design taken from an old, now dead, Squat planet, maybe. >>39325857We gotta have snow-white drills in that case with bloody red casings. Blood in the Ice magic does sound neat now I think about it. >>39325881Bikes always end up freezing up. Rarely used, yetis all the way. Snowmobiles though are used by some scouts who roam far from base and can't afford to have yeti food to hand. But a snowmobile can't be "upgraded" to be smart enough to help fight with you and protect you if you're hurt.Well, it technically can. But that's heresy.
>>39325782>>39325785http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/TermiteThe base version is already a thing. Unfortunately, the only Arctic tunneller that comes to mind is the Lemming, which... is less then awesome as a nickname.
>>39325902>tech priest yetis are the most advanced>tech priest literally docks with the yeti>turn into killing machines with multiple arms and heads>...we call them, asura
>>39325776>During planetary invasions the Ice Wraith battle-barges launch unique terraforming devices into the atmosphere that blot out the sun and freezes the planet over before podding in for the kill.This would explain our usual ice based tactics.
>>39325975We'd probably be using a combination of a drop pod and a termite. Icebreakers or Icy Fangs would be the name.
>>39325985Nah, our tech priests found vid related and use that insteadhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0fJ2NvzcDc
>>39325996We can fight without them, it must be said. Though we seem to be a close combat chapter and suffer with long sightlines available to our foes. Smokescreens are a decent substitute maybe for a good snowstorm.Wraits make good urban fighters for clearing out genestealers cults if we're in the neighbourhood for instance. Can't always be hanging around one planet, there's a galaxy of xenos to PURGE. What do the Orks call us? We're creepy ice vampires lead by ork-voldemort after all.
>>39325776Don't forget the occasional feral Monstrous Nid to up the stakes. Those fluffy Carnifexes are surprisingly sneaky, and these strains of Nids are extra tough to boot. Then again, it's also a great opportunity for a particularly strong neophyte to gain a new pat, and something to help him track down those prisoners.
>>39326069Well wouldn't the Orks call us snowflakes too? Also, I can see us fielding so many assault marines.
>>39326081>Fluffy Lictor and Ice Wraith trying to out sneak each otherthats pretty cool>>39325957how are these colors? original along with three other choices. I'm kinda liking Hormagaunt purple myself.
>>39326130Majestic Blue seems the most Ice Wraith-y.But I can see Hormagaunt purple working.
>>39326098Snoflaykes? Oi, boss! We do we call da ice humies dat?>BECAUSE OI SAID SO YOU GROT! >>39326130Ultrasmurf pls. Ideally would the red be gloss do hint at blood while the rest matte?
>>39325604Thank you based pagefag
>>39326130The Purple looks too night-lord-y
>>39326172>Ideally would the red be gloss do hint at blood while the rest matte?I'm having a hard time parsing this line. could you repeat it?
>>39326181I guess your right. Still, someone said they wanted a darker color than the original Majestic Blue.I still have Bolter and Chainsword open if you wanna see other choices. I should tell you that I'm not changing the red, white or silvers though.
>>39326189Would the red in the color scheme, when on an actual marine, be shiny and glossy like liquid blood while the blue and white remain a shineless matte like standard marine colouration?
>>39326240You mean like when a painter uses blood for the blood god?
So do are Devastators get a Deathball gun ,or what?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vhqi6ysY_HQ
>>39326227Alright then. lets decide out of the two blue ones then so I can upload to 1d4
>>39326263I'm leaning towards Majestic.
>>39326130Guy who complained here, i'm loving the purple. Ultrasmurf blue is also kickin', but i seem to be in the minority here.
>>39326240Glossy. We gotta honor our Primarch afterall.Plus Glossy also works with the Ice Motif
Alright then. Majestic blue it is. Anon with the pic would you please post the single version so i can has
>>39326340It was the original color, so its already in the thread. here>>39325741
>>39326130I really dislike the basic concept of this scheme, no matter what other colors you put on it the white just looks a mess dotted all over the place and the red looks really out of place specifically in the soft armor
There have been reports of a terrifying new Tyranid organism stalking the planet. Preliminary reports indicate it to likely be based on the Ymargl Genestealer. Already, several battle-brothers have either been found dead or vanished without a trace.
I MUST MAKE MY LEAVE. I HAD A BLAST AND YOU GUYS MADE MY TIME NICE. FIRST TIME I GOT A PAGE OR MADE A THREAD THAT REACHED BUMP LIMIT. SEE YOU SOON HOPEFULLY.
>>39326378Godspeed OP You did good here today
Guys, we are missing something vital. Our chapter was created for CRUSADAN, but we've seem to have focused primarily on our conflict with the nids. Are there fluffy nids on other cold worlds? Are we actively seeking them out as the targets of our crusade, with Orkz being in the way here and there?Help me with this.
Hnnng, I want to model an army of Ice Wraiths so bad now>converted yetis as dreads>assault focussed scouts with space wolf bitz >allied Russian themed admech>Chapter Master modeled with over the top Gothic spiky things on armour from the imperial ruins set
So, we've succeeded in fleshing out our ice world, but do we have a name for it?
>>39326391We were probably originally created for a crusade, but since we got knocked down to half strength we've been mainly focusing on our current struggles on our home world.
>>39326407Frostham.>>39326403Nah man, Chapter Master Riddickulus wears as little as possible. Old man doesn't even put on his power arms.Or we doing Lord Marshall Riddick?
>>39326391Ah here you see, we were created in the 34th millenia for a crusade. The details have been lost to time but we do know that our homeplanet was given to us as a reward for our actions during that time. In the current day we faced a splinter fleet of Kraken, Hive Fleet Mi-go, and took heavy losses. We're at ~500 marines right now and trying to recover while hunting the last remnants of the fleet
>>39326391I'm guessing Orks. But we whacked them down hard, so we got time to dig in and regain our numbers. But then Tyranids.
>>39326365red still would be nice somewhere, even if it's a pale shade represented in the symbol or something
>>39326391We lend out small groups and companies to other battles and crusades, They help out and go full Riddick Spec-Ops to aid in different crusades.Also we help out and act as an unofficial chamber militant for the Arbites in nearby systems when they need to deal with Daemons, Xenos and other big threats.Basically, while most Crusaders are the Charging Lances of the Emperor, breaking throuh the ranks of his foes, we are the Arrows plunging into the hearts of his enemies.
>>39326463Who killed the Greenskins? THE ICE WRAITHS!
>>39326456Lord marshall. Im doing that. Also we now need a picture of our chapter symbol
>>39326407Fuck Valhalla is takenWhat color scheme is offcial?Also maybe they will refer to other not-mechanic people as bloodbags,similiar to fleshbagsAnd give them a proper battlecry god dammit
>>39326474this right here needs to be our scheme
>>39326490We have a proper Battlecry. Have you not noticed?
>>39326474again, the eyes have to be black, we're literally putting double darkened wielding goggles on our hats because th elight hurts so fucking badturn the eagles on the legs red maybe
>>39326490I see what you did there, and I like it.
>>39326500A bit lacking in Red, which is important for honoring the blood angels.
>>39326366"First Emprah-damned week of training..."
Ok official colour scheme is now >>39325741 according to official page. This is not set in stone but it seemed to be the majority. I have fluff down for the planet and the Yetis. Have a list of the rolls we made for the chapter, and a picture of our Lord Marshall. What next?
has Niflheim been taken as name yet for a planet?
>>39326511sorry, lame Russkie pic generator, can't touch the optional bling. Trims maybe?
>>39326553Well apart from planet name, there's the fluff about our Wendigoes.
>>39326567On it. Planet name is Frosttham. was named earlier in the thread
>>39326562Now this I like.
>>39326567Also our drill pods.
>>39326555Naming it that is just begging to have Hive Fleet Nidhoggr come and help/nom their fluffy cousins.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hive_Fleet_Nidhoggr
>>39326596I posted the first pale blue pic - that's good, but I still would paint knees white
>>39326596>>39326619I thought you'd say that
>>39326553I made some minor changes that is think made it less busy. Feel free to shoot me down.
>>39326641>http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hive_Fleet_Nidhoggrnice job anon>>39326641that i like too
>>39326641just to blend in when the snowstorm comes, ya'know, but I can live with your original one
>>39326562Maybe do knees red too?Also imagine all frost themed weapons we can have. Freezing beams instead of meltas,some cryoflame thing instead of flamers. And we wont have dreadnoughts. Our nearly dead veterans will be put inside their mecha-yetis that will work as dreadnoughts.And armoured yetis instead centurions >>39326509It doesn't make much sense but whatever if you like it let it be
>>39326651that I like too, the red soft parts are good, but I figure a paler shade of the blue would work better with an ice world and whatnot
>>39326582Woulnt Frostheim be better?
>>39326665Well I suppose we could have another, less greenskin orientated battlecry. Any ideas based on what we have so far, guys?
>>39326562>>39326596Eh. These are a bit drab, and look too much like the Doom Eagles.>>39326651Changing he Helmet makes it lose some of its Wraith flair to it. he contrast on the helm is meant to deflect light and make the black optics look more ominous and shadowy>>39326665see>>39325689
>>39326680I kinda feel like thats a little obvious. Im not thrilled with Frosttham either to be fair. Personally I would call it Glaceaus cause glaciers
>>39326665let's see how it looks likeno, too much red here i guess
>>39326598>"Let's go help the fluffies and OH HIVE QUEEN THIS IS COLD! [Tyranid Screeching] Nope nope nope there's no magma here and I'm no way going to use fire breath here I'm fucking off to ultramar"
>>39326701Eat the fluffies, anon. That's what Hive Fleets do when they meet. There's no biomass lost in those battles, so the winner gets Nids that are best of both worlds and significantly increases it's fleet size. It's to encourage improvements and pick off the weak evolutionary dead ends.
>>39326641>>39326651trying to find a midpoint between these two
>>39326757Or the Niddhoggr stuff becomes super intelligent, because super conductivity.
>>39326694Oh shit, i didn't even see that contrast, man.And i decided that i liked the red wings after all.
>>39326769That's a tad overboard on red.
>>39326694on the second glance the red chest eagle does that, but I wouldn't drop the ice blue and whitehow do you like it quartered and with a grey eagle?
>>39326801I like this, it's different that and I love quartered schemes
>>39326699>>39326752Perhaps we could name the world 'Vialux lingent' ?
Ok who wants to give me a summary of what we've decided on the Wendigos? I seem to have forgotten and Im lazy
>>39326828aww shit, that didn't occur to me - fair 'nuff
>>39326665Flak Grenades -pronounced Flake- that supercool the air and cause snap freezing with sprayed out cold gunk? Not so useful against fluffynids but Orks hate it when their arm suddenly snaps off and their teef freeze up.Icicle 'stubbers' that shoot, well... Icicles. Hey, if there's snow fucking everywhere you might as well compress it and turn it into ammunition. Given to chapter serfs. Bonus is a standard issue guardsman canteen can be affixed and used to refill it.Archaeo tech can go further and just remove heat in it's path. Like reverse volkite weaponry. Maybe the Wraiths have a couple locked up, maybe they don't. But that planet that was snap frozen mid-crusade and is still covered in frozen ork statues says otherwise.>>39326693Blood on the ice! >>39326801I don't often like quartering. But this works.
>>39326791Original blue-armor guy here. This one is fine as well. Its pretty god and isn't as cluttered as my original>>39326801Perhaps change the body from White/Grey to Granite and blue?Perhaps we can find a balance between these two.Though I still like mine, but I'm a bit biased towards it.Gotta go for a bit. I have animals to take care of.
>>39326846We already have freeze-ray flamers but I like the grenades idea
we should call the world Nora
>>39326839See>>39324687 I like the idea some are kept "on ice" and unleashed for pure psychological impact. A figure occasionally blurring in and out of view with Astartes capabilities that just wants to rip and tear guts for the eating is goddamn terrifying.Both to the foe and the Wraiths, reminding them to forever stand firm and vigilant.
>>39326839Marines succumbing to the Red Thirst or Black Rage are called Wendigos, and are used as elite units.
>>39326846Blood on Ice!It works.
>>39326933I thought we used them as slightly worse Eversors.
>>39326993Yeah pretty much how I'm writing them
Off duty fluff, but a lot of Wraiths are now so used to the cold they find most other planets almost unbearably hot and their suits work to chill their bodies down. They're Astartes so if they had to they would just man up and bear it. But goddamn is everywhere else hot for them. Hell, some Wraiths walk around on their home world with the heating coils turned off and more power turned to other power armor functions.So you get a Salamander freezing his butt off right next to a Wraith sweating himself into a puddle on a standard temperate planet.There's a joke in Deathwatch to give a new Wraith inductee an ice pack. The traditional response is to punch the smug tosser offering it in the face and get back to work.
>>39326993Basically their job is to be let loose into enemy territory so that enemy targets will be destroyed and fear will be struck into their hearts.
>>39326954Nixarteria ?Literally 'Snow Artery'
>>39327012Now I want to play an Ice Wraith in Deathwatch so bad.
>>39327030Huh. That actually sounds pretty nice as a Warcry. Shall we roll with it guys?
>vampires>on super cold planet>in cold conditions, moisture in the air crystallises and sparkles>it's really prettyWe just made sparklevampires. Sort of.
What are we calling chaplains, librarians and sanguinary priests?
>>39327030...That was meant more as a planet name suggestion! But if you like it?
>>39327012>Salamander freezing his butt off right next to a Wraith sweating himself into a puddle on a standard temperate planet.That is more hilarious than it needs to be.
>>39326870I'm not against trying that. Your scheme is something I could go with easily,.I just pictured a big-ass blizzard blowing and Marines hunting in it for mine, that's all. Here's all in blue and dark grey, are those the shades you had in mind?
>>39327088I quite like that, i'm still partial to a quartered scheme though
>>39327076How would we get along with the salamanders, do you think?
I'm back>>39327088Not at all. I meant e Paultrons keep thier smowy appearence, whereas the The Blue and Grey quartering of the main body would be kinda like dark glacial ice like the kind cakes all over thier fortress.Hold on. I'll show you in a bit.>>39327119Considering they're both Technophiles, I'd say they'd either be bros or rivals. PLus While Salamanders love thier Flamers and Plasma, the Ice Wraiths love thier Freezers and Ice Blasters
>>39327119They try each others standard rations, the Salamander breaks his teeth and the Wraith burns his tongue and runs around in a panic.
damn it now i want to play a ice wraith in Deathwatch. Time to start a new character!
>>39327140[used Ceramite White and Celestra Grey for mine]
>>39327072I think we can keep Chaplains as is. But if we have ice and blood runic magic, librarian ain't gonna cut it. Not sure though. >>39327076I like the idea of some IG standing nearby just confused and amused as an ork with a new kustom shoota.They're not sure what's going on but seeing the Emperor's finest struggling with this little ol' planet's climate is funny. >>39327119"Promethium!">"Cryothium!""Promethium!">"Cryothium!""..technology?">"Technology!""Technology!">"Technology!"
>>39327182thankfully my players haven't discovered /tg/ yet, otherwise they would try to change characters every week
Chaplain Aleksandrovich! Brother Ivan found some young fluffnids and brought them home. First we though he brought them as rations for the rest of us, but turns out he was thinking we could tame them and use them alongside our yetis. Some of the men said that would be heresy, other said it was a good idea. Brother Grigori is taking bets if a fight breaks out which side wins.We need you to calm the men down before something bad happens.
Brother Lucius was made famous for serving in the deathwatch and killed a whole squad of raveners bare knuckledWhen questioned about it he always says that "these naked bugs are just too soft"
>>39327119Friendly rivals. Salamanders want to burn, Ice wraiths want to freeze Maybe some kind of Dark Angels/Space Wolves duels?
>>39327230So are we all Transylvannian then? Cause eastern european vampires?
>>39327230Reclusiarch Boris says he can keep them as long as he doesn't forget to feed them and cleans up after them
>>39327230Freeze everything. Whatever walks out deserves to live. >>39327237Now I'm thinking of some confused and scared tyranid caught between the two and surviving because it's being heated and chilled in equal measure.
>>39327237im totally behind the idea for a friendly duel with the with the sallys. Its a friendly rivalry though. They call it "Trials of fire and ice"See Robert Frost::Fire and IceSome say the world will end in fire,Some say in ice.From what I’ve tasted of desireI hold with those who favor fire.But if it had to perish twice,I think I know enough of hateTo say that for destruction iceIs also greatAnd would suffice.
>>39327267Would go with Slavic (as opposed to Romanian/Hungarian/German), in line with a russian winter theme
>>39327072Well, reading about inuits>The angakkuq of a community of Inuit was not the leader, but rather a sort of healer and psychotherapist, who tended wounds and offered advice, as well as invoking the spirits to assist people in their lives. His or her role was to see, interpret and exhort the subtle and unseen. Sangikuqq?
>>39327293>Sangikuqqnice lol! but yes i like this
>>39327290>>39327293So are we inuit or slavic?
>>39327301Faux-latin and language mixing is how you do Marine names, right?
>>39327269Brother Vladimir has been complaining about zhe Neophytes again, apparently he does nott go "Ah blah-blah-blah.", or somezing of zhat nature.
>>39327293This could work.
>>39327293inuits for me are inherently low-tech
>>39327302I think we might have influences of both cultures intermixing here. I say we run with that, but that's just me.
>>39327317>>39327302I think i got it wrong, the natives are the inuits and the marines are Siberian/ruski.My bad.
>>39327343I like this very much
>>39327331>>39327343well, orthodox inuits were actually a thing in Alaska, so yeah, we can actually mix those to a degree
I'm an idiot. I just now notice that Ice Blue was a color option
Idea. Like how the Inuit and Eskimo can't really afford NOT to use every bit of the prey, so too the natives of... [home world] use everything they can. This is seen in the Wraiths with their philosophy of "You keep what you kill". What you kill is yours, and neglecting or misusing your own property is disrespectful. Being unable or unwilling to use something you've killed -who wants a pile of dead orks- what you can do is burn it. Harkening back to feral world traditions of the god emperor being of their Sun and fire in general, burning something cleanses it of obligation and ownership except to the Emperor himself. Who owns everything anyway. If you find something you DO want though, you can burn it in offering to show loyalty and devotion. So in a way... Freezing something claims it, Burning something releases it. >>39327267Eastern Europe and Russia. About there, yeah.
>>39327343But aren't they recruiting from the natives of this world?
>>39327302Both. We're in space.
>>39327364Keep what you kill.
>>39327368sure, but while Inuit culture bleeds ito the Chapter via recruits, it doesn't work the other way around
>>39327362That fits a lot better.
>>39327362change the mouth grill to grey and me personally i'd not have the shoes a different color, but that ones looking quite good
>>39327362waaay better. just one point: the red mouth grill and eagle doesn't work well with the black eyes, draws attention awaytry black eagle and red trim just for kicks, and revert if it looks shit
The Red mouth is intentional. We are vampires after all.Also how come no one has ever thought of making the stomach and chest different colors?
>>39327464intentional or not it looks bad.Also the stomach and chest don't look good different colors
>>39327495Then its working. Its supposed to look like a hideous and eiry wraih thats about to eat your face off.I have changed back to a single color though now, and changed the eagle to silver If I start making things more silver, then we'll just look like Doom Eagle knock offs.
>>39326130+1 vote for second from right.
i bring forth a motion to make "Riddick" a title taken by each chapter master. He leaves his name behind and takes the name "Lord Marshall Riddick" upon his promotion. that way we can simply ascribe all deeds done by the chapter master to "Lord Marshall Riddick"
>>39327495different anon, but yes, white belly's overdoing it
>>39327579dangit forgot pic
>>39327579it doesn't look hideous, it just looks bad, from a design point of view, bad
>>39327588I support this Motion with gusto.
>>39326596This feels more Wraith-y to me than the others ive seen so far
>>39327588ooooh yes. Can we have numerals, like Lord Marshall Riddick the Twenty-First?
>>39327588>somewhere some angry Daemon Prince yells to his servants>"KILLL THE RIDDICK!"
>>39327617>>39327627>>39327635it is decided then. So what number is the current Lord Marshall Riddick then? We were created in the 34th Millenium and the 1st one i have dying in the 35th millenium. I vote for the current one being the twenty second Riddick (XXII)
>>39327600I like it, that's the most ghost-like so far. Doom Eagles have read chest eagles, so this one's even better. My red trims were Iron Snakes, so better that we lost them too
>>39327670You have my blessing to that
"Are ve bringing forge master Chekhov vith us.""Da, he says he may come in handy."Forge Master Chekhov is a Wendigo Techmarine, he just became more logical. Coldly Logical. He is now Techmarine Lecter
>>39327710>Wendigo TechmarineExcuse me while I go piss myself in fear.
>>39327670remember that one time Lord Marshal Riddick XIV got swallowed whole by a Tyranid and then froze the beast from the inside out?What a guy he was
>>39327734The only tactic they use when He's an option is "Shoot Chekhov at it", this tactic is called "Chekhov's Gun"
>>39327710I'm worried about a wendigo with the sense enough to repeatedly come back to base and be out on ice between expeditions without ever succumbing to their geneseed flaws.And then he's a goddamn tech marine. That both somewhat explains it and makes it more horrifying. I like it. He never actually fires a gun, uses power swords, explosives and throwing knives
>>39327740No way man. Lord Marshal Riddick IV was better! He fought a two day long fight with a Ork warboss on the world of Nacht and won by freezing the orks arms off before kicking him over a cliff!
>>39327757>*instead uses power swords and etcetera.
>>39327671Do you still want a Facelift? I've been working on color options for the grill, or are you cool now?
it just occurred to me that the whole Riddick thing is our version of 'Honour Thy Ancestors'. Nice
>>39327778I'm curious, so yeah, show it
Ok i'm going to have to go soon so can we quickly take a look at what i have on the page and point out if theres anything I need to change? Otherwise imma go. Also someone needs to archive this thread so i can include a link
>>39327786Just as planned.
>>39327786...well fuck me sideways. It works. 500+ posts, page 9. Might be time to think about a new thread. Can use a color scheme for the OP.
>>39327820Do we want to mention our honored ancestors Lord Marshal Riddick the XIV and the IV ?
>>39327829Yeah, someone should probably do that and archive this thread. Three cheers for the founding of the Ice Wraiths!
>>39327837what about Lord Marshal Riddick the IXthey say when his Drill Pod broke, he punched his way through the ground and ended up clearing an entire nest of Tyranids by himself
>>39327820I'd put up the latest colour scheme and enter a space between the two words in the chapter name, but otherwise you're golden
>>39327818>insert joke about racists dialogue here
>>39327837and everyone in general. Thread is dying and I have to go soon. Anyone who knows how (its not that hard i literally taught myself today so i could make this page) can edit the page and stuff and writefagging is encouraged (we need some stories now)>>39327864don't know how to do that... been trying to figure it out. I literally just taught myself how to do this by looking at the stuff for other pages and copying it
>>39327873all look good except the bloody face
>>39327873Maybe these Grill palettes can be used in the chapter to help denote years of service or rank or something?>>39327897actually I like Bloody a lot more over Ice. Plus it a lot more thematically appropriate.
>>39327873hehh, right, I didn't think that through.Knowing blood face is a vampire thing it makes sense, but we loose the cool Riddick-like black eyes if we overcomplicate the face
>>39327843It's up, but needs votes>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=ice+wraithsRemember to tag subsequent threads and they'll all show up there, so be sure to add it to the 1d4 chan page. And don't forget that archive.moe is a thing that saves goddamn every thread.
>>39327949i mean we lose the *impact* of the eyes
>>39327952>adding this right now
>>39327967all right, let's hammer out the rest tomorrow, it's almost midnight hereI would very much like to hear the stories of the other Riddicks at some point
>>39327922Standard are Steel/Ghost No Pokémon jokes here. Nope.Bloody face are wendigos Ice face are Sangikuqq mysticShadow face is... er.. Scout? Assault? Devastator-trained?
>>39328016Shadow is Veteran
Anyone remember when Blood Priest Kazov actually made this one chaos cultist swear allegiance to the emperor before bashing his skull in? Hahahahaha the absolute madman!
Shall I make a new thread once this one dies? Some new blood may help. Heh.
>>39328016I like this. Shadows are Veteran.>>39328040perhaps. I was thinking to doing some minor writefaggotry
>>39328040Yes. Also, referring to Neophytes exclusively as the new blood is a thing we should do.
>>39328040Yes lets have a new one right now even. We're 500+ replies, page 9 and fading fast. Open a new thread and lets start it off with colour scheme options
>>39328066Actually I think we are good on those. We've got a good final color, and the face grills have been decided to denote ranking
>>39328040I think you could wait until tomorrow.
>>39328091Right then what's the final scheme? I haven't really been paying attention to those
>>39328103We should at least update the archived version. It cuts off before some key decisions we've made just recently.
>>39327600with alternate face grills shown here>>39327873with >>39328016 >>39328028 describing rank of grills. In next thread I can provide main body with different faces if you want.
>>39328091As someone who suggested an alternative scheme, I like the latest one and the face grill scheme is exactly the unorthodox ranking which has been suggested at the beginning (instead of helmet side marks).Now get a new thread so I can bookmar it and check it in six hours when I drink my first of many coffees in work
>>39328142Alright, let's break this thread, see if we can keep it going in another one, reiterate the design and what positions the grilles denote in that one.
>>39328120It should auto-update until this thread dies, I think. It may lose a few things, but the 1d4 page should hopefully catch that.
>>39326474What program is this?
Fot these that want rage and bloodshed>we bring cold that offer peaceFor these who spread plague and despair>we bring ice that will never decayFor these who seek knowledge at all cost>we bring snow that knows all the answersFor these who seek pleasure and exitement>we bring frost that ends all feelingsCometh forward heretics and your bones will be lost in the snow
>>39328296this: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/282304-chapter-generator/expect broken english, but it works well once you learned the ropes
>>39328325Aaaaaaand I need to add this right now. What am i calling it anon?
>>39328383not him, but."Ice Wraith Litany of the Serene Conflict" recited when confronting Chaotic forces.
>>39328383different anon, but Rite (or Litany) of Riddick?
>>39328383Litany of Utter Calm?
>>39328410I like litany of serene conflict
Wiki correction: Blood face is Wendigo, not Standard (pic caption is wrong)
