Well /tg/ you did it again you magnificent bastards. You rolled a few numbers on the Marine Chapter creation table and you made a new Chapter. And then you fluffed the hell out of it. The Ice Wraiths, a tech-heavy chapter of the Emperor's finest, descended from the Blood Angels and fighting an endless Crusade against xenos. Firstly the Orks, and now the Mi-Go splinter of Tyranids with their nefarious warm fuzzy coats and little ice-gripping feetses.At their side are the Arbiters of all people and their ever-faithful and ever-cybernetically augmented yeti friends as they use ever more improbable and metal ice-based weaponry against the Tyranid horde. And they are lead by their Lord Marshal Riddick the XII and by actual not!Riddick the Chapter Master. So fuck it. Drilling drop-pod using russian-inuit cyborg vampires riding doped up yetis into battle alongside policemen against the ravenous alien hoards. What the fuck else were you looking for on this site? 1d4chan page>http://1d4chan.org/wiki/IceWraithsArchive>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=ice+wraiths
>a gentle reminder"WE 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 RIDE 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. WE LOVE THE ADEPTUS ARBITES AND HATE OVERSIZED SPACE COCKROACHES."
old thread: >>39322254
>>39328525and now I'm so glad I put that on the page
Posted about our past chapter masters and their hero deeds from the other thread. Some write anon can take over on them!
>>39328459Armor Anon here, almost got a pic detailing the basic armors for each rank.Also I can't wait until we get a drawfag. Can't wait to see our Chapter Symbol and Chaplain helmets.
>>39328552You did the Emperor's work there, son
>>39328564got the names of the shades? I'd like to feed it to my generator - it spits out random special characters with extra bling, it might be useful
>>39328564Seconded. We must obtain a Drawfag at once.
>>39328459So that's the final colors then? I can dig it.Now, have we fleshed out how the yetis look like? Roided out gorillas, lean and sinewy abominations or what?And is the chapter badge still a fanged deerskull on a snowflake?
>>39328640I believe those things are still up in the air.
>>39328601you mean the name of the Face or the color I used from Bolter and Chainsword
Bringing this over from other thread...These who exist only to devour>they they will starve in the wastelandThese who seek only war>their final battle will be against the blizzardsThese who plot from their havenships>will die in our frozen hellThese who prosper and build>their expansion will end on the glaciersThese who kill all the living>will only find death here
I really liked the Litany of Serene Conflict in the last thread, sort of thing I expect some Wraiths would say. Especially with the thought of becoming a Wendigo hanging over their heads to remain calm and level-headed. How do the Wraiths get along with the IG? Do xeno-eating cyborg vampire supersoldiers play nice with the trench troopers? Mission first or Lives first? >>39328640I'm thinking somewhere between bear and moose with oddly human faces. But that's me.
>>39328673I meant the name of the colour in B&CI'm unable to set mouth grille and soft armour to custom at the moment - there's a new version, but it's fuck-late here to start updating, but I'd like to toy a bit with it tomorrowI
>>39328714Is that a separate litany or part of the litany of serene conflict?
>>39328755i wasn't the original anon who wrote it but it was a new one he added after the thread switch
>>39328546>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FLQ4rACE-0It's Skyrim, but fuck it. Also the dragon language could easily be the native russian-inuit-psuedogothic language.Works well with the ancestor-honoring side of things at least.
>>39328755I'd like to imagine it's Verse 43, Book LXIX of the Litanies of the Serene Conflict ice planet blood angels trying to tone it down with a fuckton of battle litanies to avoid losing it and becoming Wendigos fits the picture
>>39328755Original anon. They are meant to be part of same litany of hate,but writing on phone is suffering
>>39328726Skull White, Blood Red, Mithril Silver, Chaos Black, Ice Blue>>39328564here are all armor types right now, or at least the basic ones without psychic hoods or other decorations
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g95U2WhuIR8 This is our original chapter Battle Hymn, to be sung A Capella, if you all recall.
>>39328716pretty sure wraiths get along pretty well with the ig since Lord Marshal Riddick the First, also known as Lord Riddick the Bloody Shade, was the First Scout Sargent to become a Chapter Master
>>39328857I'd say that the difference between steel and ghost be more pronounced if we use them that way.
>>39328874The difference is that Ghost Face are a matte white, while Steel Face are shiny silver. Though I see your point. Perhaps just having only Ghost Face for default marine?
>>39328970That would probably be best. Although it would be nice for there to be something that could set the New Blood apart from the basic marines.
It's not only Wendigos that are camouflaged for maximum effect. Part of marine's standard kit choices are camo capes for ambush tactics and recon work. In snowstorms a veteran can appear to become invisible at will to his foes and attack from unpredictable directions.Indeed, it was this method of attack that gave the fledgling Chapter it's name. The then unnamed Chapter had landed on their new homeworld and were preparing it as a staging post against the Ork hordes when they were first met with the greenskins and the natives of the planet. Well, the Codex was wheeled up and someone was sent to fetch the magnifying glass to check what it had to say about ice combat when it was noted the native warriors used skillfully made and painted hide cloaks to hide from the orks or strike at them when ignored. Fortunately, the wisdom of such a tactic was seen before someone found the index of the Codex and was shown to be of great use against the orks who had little idea of how to fight an opponent they couldn't see and could even hope to aim and land a meaningful hit against the swift astartes before they retreated beyond visibility.Thus the name came to be whispered among the natives of the planet that the astartes were not mere men, or even supermen but mythical "Ice Wraiths", spirits of ice and vengeance that struck the unwary during storms. As it turned out, the new Chapter rather liked the name. To this day, camo cloaks of various design are distributed to the marines to suit numerous battlefields and have fooled foes from across the galaxy long enough it was too late for them.
>>39328970yeah, that's enoughAlso: >Lord Marshall Riddick and all the men of the Wraiths drew up their forces by the Raven's Rock; and the Greenskins and their Nobs rode at them, driving themselves like a wedge through their army. And there was a great slaughter of Orks... they fought with them during the pursuit on the ice seven versts short of the shore. And there fell a countless number of Grenskins, and 400 of their leaders, and they took fifty's head with their hands and they took them to the Fortress-Monastery.(adapted from the Novgorod First Chronicle about the historical Battle on Ice)
>>39329056I'd say their helmet has no red highlights. Part of their initiation involves hunting a local beast and eating it. Proves you're a survivor, a fighter and that you use your kills to strengthen yourself.Mi-Go Tyranids give double points. Mixing up your blood hunt with your yeti capture is not the best idea. You kill the beast and tame the yeti. Not the other way around.
>>39329056The New Blood could lack the red on the helmet. In hunting cultures a new hunter is marked on the face with the blood of their first kill.
we have 3 chapter masters named at the moment with some lore TG.We need writefags to take over for.Lord Marshal Riddick IV 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!Lord Marshal Riddick the IX they say when his Drill Pod broke, he punched his way through the ground and ended up clearing an entire nest of Tyranids by himselfLord Marshal Riddick XIV got swallowed whole by a Tyranid and then froze the beast from the inside out
>>39329178>>39329282remember that time Lord Marshal Riddick XIII managed to sneak up on a Tyranid during his initiation and rode it into a yeti camp. he chased the biggest yeti untill both the tyranid and the yeti were out of stamina, he then slaughtered the nid and fed part of it to teh yeti who would later become his comapnion
>>39329178>>39329234Yeah, lacking the red on the helmet is a solid idea for the new blood.
>>39329234>>39329178>>39329056would this work? Blue tubes denoting his fangs are without blood, but are as fresh ice
>>39329347Subtle yet effective. I like it. Say, Armor Anon, can you post the individual images for the armor variations so I can put them on the page?
>>39329291I'm still not convinced his yeti wasn't a 'nid in disguise who knew better than to fight back. Thing was vicious and was more intelligent than most of the initiates. Hey, remember ol' Magos "Freeze" Fluoxus? Heard he's still tinkering with the local wildlife in his laboratory. Saw one his rejects walking the wastes. Some kind of natural cryothium gland, tried to freeze my foot to the ice with it's spit. Let me tell you, he ever makes something he's happy with I want to see it teched-up in battle against some greenskins.
>>39329376Certainly>captcha: havelBy the Way, what ever did happen to Sargent Brother Havel of the Terminator Squad?
>>39329394Dont get e started on techmarines. Do you remember Ivan IV?He spend around 172 years to build a campfire made of ice.He suceeded
>>39329466>>39329473I know, who knew that if you compressed enough Cryothium within a single space exposed to oxygen and and meat that it'd burs into flames. Ivan never grew those eyebrows back, did he?
If our fortress-monastery basically has a castlevania dungeon built in for initiates and attackers..Do we seed the initiate's wargear throughout the dungeon for them to claim as they ascend the fortress? Can't get through this door, you need to hit a target from far away. But wait! Behind that ravenous beast is a bolter! This bridge won't lower without a voice command from a marine. Now if only you had a vox.. like that helmet does. Past that gauntlet. So it's like castlevania again in that you need to arm yourself as you progress. You kill, and you keep the spoils of what you kill.Once the initiate is fully armed and armored, they can meet a Master of the Chapter who spars against them, final boss style to ensure they learnt the lessons of the dungeon below. On succeeding, they're a member of the Chapter. Actually, this sounds harder than just their blood hunt. Maybe you have to do the dungeon to be recognize as a Veteran? You have to cast aside your knowledge and power to reclaim it and surpass yourself. Unless the blood hunt is just to BECOME an initiate? Holy fuck do they have some high standards.
>>39329282The actions that aided in the ascension of Lord Marshal Riddick XIV were challenged by the other contender for the position, Captain Fyor. Fyor argued that the account of being swallowed and killing the beast from within was a fabrication and that the cryogenic weaponry had simply caused the Tyranid's carapace to fracture under the stress of battle and exposed its vitals to attack. As such, the fight was a common victory seen by the Ice Wraiths and the future Lord Marshal was simply embellishing to further his status. This resulted in an honor duel that ended with Captain Fyor's death and the securing of the Lord Marshal position by the future Riddick XIV. Rumors of outside help by compatriots of the Lord Marshal abounded, but were quickly suppressed once he took command.
>>39329568Most chapters do. But really, becoming an initiate involves being cast out into the wilderness and being hunted by newbloods.
>>39329557It should be Sangikuqq, not Sangiqukk, surely?...also, maybe Sangikuqq Mystic would help. Then they can be referred to as Mystics informally.
>>39329601fixed it>>39329568Normal dungeon and hunting released convicts and making way through are for Initiates to become Neohpytes. Blood Hunt is to make it as an Initiate. Super Dungeon you mentioned is for being recognized as Veteran.Blood. At least I think that's fair.
Who do the Ice Wraiths NOT get along with? I remember someone mentioning the more puritan Sororitas would not like our sangikuqq due to their almost-but-no-quite sorcery psyker tomfoolery.Maybe we piss off the administratum with our constant requests for more cryothium than the Salamanders ask for in promethium back when they were an entire Legion. Quill pushers be all "Who the fuck even uses this stuff? ONE Chapter in the ass end of the galaxy."
>>39329685"I'm a veteran! I served for many years so they put bolts in my head! Yay.">"I'm a veteran. I was thrown in an icy citadel with basic clothing and a knife against gene-modded animals and the most inventive traps an entire Chapter spent thousands of years developing, having to fight off monsters to claim a lousy bolt pistol. But I fucking did it. So they spray painted my mouth black." Oh hey, I just thought. Some chapters stave off red thirst and the like with concentrating on scrimshaw. The carving and inking of bones. That's goddamn inuit as fuck. The wraiths should have carved bone accessories.
>>39329718There's probably one or two chapters we don't get along with.
>>39329780>The wraiths should have carved bone accessories.Agreed.
>>39329780BAs use art generally, so don't forget the ice sculptures.
>>39329787Imperial fists and successors do not like us cause blood magic. Space wolves think we stealin their style. We're too deviant for smurfs
>>39329832Yeah, that sounds accurate.
>>39329718I'd imagine they have a love/hate relationship with the Rogue Traders and various merchantile organizations that supply them with cryothium. Their suppliers charge them exorbitant prices since they're the only people who buy the stuff and they need so much of it.There's an old /tg/ Sororitas homebrew called the Order of the Obsidian Mirror who were basically battle nun KGB. They weren't puritan at all, but group of spies using questionable methods to run a massive information network covering both Imperials and Xenos would make for some great jurisdictional friction.
>>39329817>intricate, detailed ork warboss statue>life sized with grot minions>a whole emperor-damned year between other duties but wow, it's finished>some faggot wendigo sees it, flips the fuck out>now have to start againIf it wasn't that going mad would involve becoming a wendigo myself... >>39329832Huh.. do they save civilians and stuff? Or are they cold motherfuckers who do their job first, help people in need second? >>39329879From the previous thread, seems they have a friendly rivalry going on. Both like their technology, and know what it's like when your home planet's temperature makes others seem near inhospitable. They just have different views on what their liquid spewing weaponry should be using. But cool guns remain cool guns, so they're generally cool with each other.
>>39329898I'm guessing cryothium does have other uses in cooling systems, and the wraiths try to manufacture what they can but yeah... Traders are going to be a big thing for the experimental-tech Chapter who use coolant like it's fuel.
>>39329926I think that we try to distance ourselves from civilians cause of wendigos and terror tactics
>>39329718Sir, we got another order of, and I quote, "a gigantic buttload of cryothium", by the Ice Wraiths.REALLY!? WHAT IN THE EMPERORS NAME ARE THY DOING WITH THAT STUFF!? WE JUST SEND THEM MORE LAST MONTH!...fine, you know what? FINE! GET ME A RETRIBUTION CLASS BATTLESHIP, FILL THE THING TO THE BRIM WITH CRYOTHIUM AND SEND IT TO THEIR HOMEWORLD!b-but sir-I SAID DO IT!>meanwhile on Nixarteriahey Grigori, guess whatwhat?Brother Ivan smuggled some fluff nids in the fortress to create some "more deadly" trapsand?well, someone told Chaplain Alexandrovich, so he gave the order to freeze the whole damn place down. said only that which walks out by itself deserves to live.he's been doing that a lot recently hasnt he?I dont like food, freeze the kitchen!I dont like these new weapons, freeze the armoryI dont like how that guys in the mirror looks at me, freeze the bathroom!
>>39330023Ok I actually did laugh out loud at this. Captain Alexadrovich is now cannon
>>39330023kekked enough a tear nearly came out. There is a standing order to freeze it for heresy. I hope the Wraiths eat a lot of popsicles from their new kitchen... wait.>"Brother! Oh no! What has.. you have succumbed to the Red Thirst!""What? No! I'm just eating a berry popsicle and it gets everywhere. I think I stained my tabard.."
>>39329466>>39329514I cannot see a difference between Ghost and Steel, I fear that it's gonna be lost on most people as well.
>>39329996>Look, I know we quoted you at 1000 thrones per cubic ton, but after your next shipment we're going to be upping the price to 4000.>There's no need to get mad or pull a gun on me. It's just business. I've got the governor of Phylos Deep blowing up my astropath begging for cryothium to use in his fish processing factories.>And I mean literally blowing up my astropath. He let out a shriek and next thing we knew we were cleaning up blood and brain bits out of the carpet. You, uh, you wouldn't happen to need an astropath corpse would you? Tell you what, I'll toss it in with the next shipment, a little gift from me to you.
>>39329718Smurfs hate us for not being compliant, as well as our usage of Tyranids in rituals and hunts.Wolves either respect us fr similair cultur, or hate us for blood rituals, shamanistic magic, love of stategy and stuff, reliance on tech, and preference over smaller weaponsBlack Templars hate us for being degenerate wizard lovers and for relying on teched up Xenos to fightDark Angels find our castle tacky and think we're a bunch of mutants.The Admech would find our willingness to swag up and use trophy equipment taken from kills to be Tech Heresy, and hate us for keeping the secrets of our STCs and Cryothium to ourselvesIronhands think we're fags for preferring to tech up beasts and not ourselves. Also because Each Riddick prefers to walk around shirtless at the monestary and show off his well earned muscular body.Imperial Fists are probably cool with us, as are the White Scars.Ice Wraiths despise the Bluhd Ravens, because they keep always stealing our swag and their kleptomaniac tendencies are completely at odds with "keep what you kill"Flesh Tearers probably think we aren't psycho enough and that we should stop sitting on a planet and should go eat things.Am I missing anyone?>>39329780Keep what you kill. Most non-neohpytes always take trophies from thier kills and end up decorating thier armor and weapons with all manner of swag, so scrimshaw is common practice>>39330126Ghost have matte white face and blue face pipes. Steel has shiny silver face and red face pipes
>>39330023They're on a FROZEN planet! Why do they even need military coolant? Just stick it in the snow or something! Apparently.. they use it to freeze cold-resistant xenos. ...this entire imperium feels like it's made up entirely of idiots at times.
>>39330165See, it's that "Matte White" and "Silver" faces part that's the problem. They are so alike, how can one tell the difference at a distance?
>>39329718Wait, I thought tat Cryothium was an STC that Wraiths had market on and produced the stuff en masse
>>39330190Thats where the blue and red face tubes come in. We discussed this earlier.
>>39330199No cryothium is a coolant commonly used throughout the imperium. We simply have STCs to weaponize it and we ain't sharin
the white crotch looks a bit like a nappy
If some anon was to play the Ice Wraiths in chapter master the game, what would be their pros and cons for the chapter building? Whats our main battle barge called?
>>39330199Maybe it could be a byproduct that the tyranids produce, or they go whaling and use xeno-blubber to make it.
>>39330184Polar bears do fine in the Arctic but will still die when you dump liquid nitrogen on them.
>>39330165They DO have the "Scions of Mars" demeanor. AdMech are at least neutral to them.. and they do have juicy enough STCs to keep on their good side. >>39330199Cryothium weaponry, and their specialty drill pods Ice Fangs. It's still possible to use flamers with a cryothium tank and old Termite drillers. Or maybe we gave the formula away because making wargear is one thing, the ammunition too? Tricky. >>39330231Oooh, I like this too. They certainly are cold-resistant. Maybe they have some kind of ultra-cryo that's broken out for special occasions?
>>39330223Its a silver crotch. besides, most Wraiths end up making loincloths covered in the bones and trophies of thier fallen enemies so its not that big a deal.>>39330220Ah, I see. Can we still produce the stuff too? I'm sure we can stranglesome Nids with frost breath for thier glands.Just like brother Petrov did when we dared him to strangle that one Lictor with his legs
>>39328970Huh... this is my chapter's paint scheme...
>>39330313THIN YOUR PAINTS!
>>39330269Makes more sense then having STC tech and NOT SHARING it and then expecting the imperium to give you what you need to use it. The Admech would be blockading your ass until they got it, if not outright declaring war.They gave two guys a planet each for discovering the combat knife, you think they wont destroy a chapter?
Brothers where is Master of Sanctity Putin? I swear if he is riding that gene-hanced frost-bear shirtless again....
>>39330359>They gave two guys a planet each for discovering the combat knifewait what? This is a thing>>39330371I knew we shouldn't have loaned him to the White Scars that one time.
>>39330408They did indeed, the Imperium, and especially the Admech, are REALLY serious about STC tech, its something you dont fuck with.
>>39330329Paints aside, I like the color scheme, particularly the brass over the red.
>>39330165Perhaps a friendly rivalry with the white scars. Both go in for psykers and are a bit nuts. Perhaps they share a sick sense of humor, etc.
>>39330359Okay... idea; the Wraiths discovered and "donated" the STC for cryothium. Which is actually a pretty big deal for the Imperium, military spec coolant and speciality ammunition. It just isn't as flashy as a new piece of wargear so people don't hear about it. Still, nearly every goddamn Leman Russ in the galaxy these days has some cryothium sloshing about keeping the machine spirit's drinks cool.So basically, the closest forge worlds to the wraiths these days pump it out by the shipload, and for discovering the STC in the first place, the Wraiths won a lifetime's supply of it. Fast forward a bit with techpriests and techmarines aplenty in one place with near infinite cryothium available and not much else... the Wraiths naturally developed the cryo-weaponry and advanced Termites on their own because fuck the Arbites. Except not really, they're bros.The AdMech aren't the happiest about the new technology, but since it was developed with heavy Mars-trained priest oversight and the Wraiths did get them awesome coolant... they're still on the positive side of the AdMech. Too many plusses with only a few minuses.
>>39330508I'd imagine we'd be close friends since we both love riding suped up things into battleAlso, time to talk Yeti Riding. I nominate our Yetis to look kinda like pic related, but with cooler antlers.
>>39330515Sounds alot more plausible, and the Admech would probably be in dicksuck mode for life due to the STC find, and it explains how the got the weaponry, I like it.
Ok I added a "current heroes" section to the wiki page and made Captain Alexandrovich and Chaplain Putin the inaugural entries. Someone should add the master of the forge who's secretly a wendigo as well
>>39330558I was thinking more bipedal.
Verkast huddled in the coat he had stripped from a corpse and tried to understand what had happened to his world. Three days ago it had been 30 degrees celsius and their rebellion against the Imperium had seemed a glorious success. Now neither of those things were true. Two days ago dark clouds had suddenly filled the sky over the capitol while the vox squawked about "cryogenic weapons detonating in the upper atmosphere". A massive blizzard plunged the capitol into a complete white out and the vox started screaming about "orbital assaults" and "drop pods". Then it was screaming about "monsters". Then it was just screaming. Then it was silent. Verkast's patrol had come across some of the pods, and across the bodies. Some were torn apart as if by clawed monsters. Some were shattered and scattered in frozen chunks. Some where intact except for viscous neck wounds; the medic said they'd died from blood loss, but there didn't seem to be much blood on the ground. Verkast didn't like to think about that, but at least he'd gotten an extra coat off one of them. Then the patrol got hit. The enemy were giants who just seemed to materialized out of the swirling snow fall. They came out of the blinding white with chainswords roaring, and suddenly Sergeant Liekus just didn't have arms anymore. One shot a blast of mist from what looked like a flamer, engulfing three men. One simply stopped in his tracks while the other two toppled over, and shattered when they hit the ground. Verkast didn't see the rest die, he was already running, but he heard their screams. He'd been taught about the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, but he'd always assumed the claims of their prowess were just exaggerations. Now he understood why they were called the Emperor's "Angels of Death". cont...
>>39330588Verkast fled into a tram station. Power was out through the whole city, so it was just him running through dark tunnels alone. Thankfully it was little warmer down below, and there was no snow. The angels seemed to like the snow, so he figured they stay on the surface. The emergency lights were active in the tunnels. Though frightfully dim, they none the less gave Verkast some comfort. "At least I'll see them coming," he muttered to himself."Do you really think so?" a voice calmly asked; from right behind him.Shaking, Verkast turned slowly around. One of the angels stepped out from the thick shadows the emergency lights failed to pierce. With a hiss the seal on it's helmet released, and a wave of cold air washed over Verkast face as the angel revealed it's own. It's eyes gleamed in the darkness, like ice reflecting fire light, and frozen blood glistened on it's mouth and chin. The last thing Verkast thought as the astartes fell upon him was "angels shouldn't have fangs".
>>39330588Cool so far, but Ice Wraiths prefer trenchknives, thunderclaws, and power machetes over chain weapons. Chain Weapons are too liable to freeze up and get ice caught in the motor.
>>39330588It's like they worked out a way to bring Russia with them to make every battlefield a war against russians during winter.And everyone becomes grim and drinks copious amounts of strong alcohol to cope.Seriously read that like it was a piece of eastern european writing. But then I've been reading Metro 2033 lately so a lot of things have the voice in my head reciting lines in a terrible russian accent. >>39330650Could just be non-standard marines who like the "ohfuck" factor when they're revved up in the ambush.
>>39330650>They came out of the blinding white with the snap hiss of activating power swords, and suddenly Sergeant Liekus just didn't have arms anymore.better?
>>39330695> ... the vox started screaming about "orbital assaults" and "drop pods". Then it was screaming about "monsters". Then it was just screaming. Then it was silent. Such is life.better?
>>39330695>Could just be non-standard marines who like the "ohfuck" factor when they're revved up in the ambush.that is a valid statement>>39330696its fine as is, just telling you for future reference.
>>39330719> ... the vox started screaming about "orbital assaults" and "drop pods". Then it vas screaming about "monsters". Then it vas just screaming. Then it vas silent. Such is life.
>>39330582Hmmm. How about a thickly built beast with shoulders like a gorilla and a long neck. It has a mane and antlers. Perhaps they have tails, long, for balance. I suppose I'm imagining something of a daemon ape.
>>39330779That would work.
>>39330753A blizzard of blue, white, and bronze that leaves only red in its wake.
>>39330719Hey I *like* grim russian shit. That was pretty funny though.
>>39330588>>39330642anon could I have permission to put this on the wiki page? If so, what would you entitle it? our writefaggotry section could use it
>>39330779i was thinking about a combination of a gorilla and a lion.and it has antlers obviously
When a yeti dies, does the marine generally immediately seek out another or get by on snowmobiles and bikes?
>>39330919Is it just me or would hanging little bells in their hair or antlers be ridiculously creepy. There'd be silence, then the soft tinkling of bells, then bestial roars and death.
>>39329817Contests where contestants have to carve ice sculptures with chainswords? Or would that be an initiate exercise to teach finesse and control of the chain blade as they control themselves?
>>39331052They get nothing. Letting your life-companion die in battle is a great dishonour. Old age isnt a problem cause gradually replace what fails with technology
>>39330884Sure. Not certain about titles>Angles Shouldn't Have Fangs>Cold Front>Verkast's tale>The fall of Hollengradpick one or make a better one
>>39331068It's just something done for fun. They try to pretend it's a initiate test as a joke. Raising the stakes every time they succeed. Now you gotta do it... blindfolded! One marine is currently half-way through turning half a mountainside into a giant statue of the Emperor. Not for penance or anything, he just likes it.
>>39331068I'd imagine a finesse exercise. though >>39331130 sounds funnier though otas realistic
>>39331068Both are brilliant.
>>39331068I would imagine that though they use less flashy weapons in melee combat, to use anything more precise than a chainsword in sculpting would be a grave offence.
How about they use intense cold to suppress the black rage and red thirst at bay. Thus, their power armor having cryonic features.
>>39331272It was mentioned last thread that many marines turn off their thermal coils, so used they are to the cold..So yeah, it sounds pretty neat that to help stave it off a marine will command his suit to chill him or simply stop heating him.Makes wendigos a bit more creepy if they're also ice cold to the touch. Even off their native planet.
Well done /tg/ I had thought you guys had stopped doing these.
>>39331129Alrighty its up
>>39331336Stopped doing them? We haven't even gotten started.
>>39331377he means threads where we just randomly roll a chapter and fluff them.>>39331336They still happen occasionally and are usually full of win when they do
I'm thinking of writefagging up an inquisitorial report,anyone have links to one already that I may draw inspiration and inference from?>>39331336Where have you been? We've been doing them for ages now. Heck I think we had one around 4 weeks ago
>>39331394I know that. I was trying to sound cool.
>>39331425Our 1d4chan page.>>39331428
>>39328459>Drilling drop-pod using russian-inuit cyborg vampires riding doped up yetis into battle alongside policemen against the ravenous alien hoards.Somehow I missed the first thread, but I just want to say that THIS is what 40k is supposed to be about. Not autist-level nitpicking discussions about canon in a franchise that's never really cared about having a consistent canon
>>39331455It should be mentioned that the link in the OP is technically out of date, it's now >http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ice_Wraiths Spacing and whatnot, going to /Icewraiths gives you an incomplete page.
>>39331537Hehe my bad guys. Thanks for correcting that one
>>39331572Don't forget to add the new pics of each marine with thier base Face-color armor
>>39331589uhhhhhh... so much wooooooooooooork. I got a final tmo and have been doing this instead of studying
>>39331609sorry, wish I could help, but I can't into wikimagic
>>39331589Speaking of the face grill variations, I think that was really a nice touch.
>>39328857Marine face grills would pretty hard to notice IRL, let alone on the tabletop.The reason unit patches, rank, insignia and such are put on shoulders, chests, and headgear in modern militaries is because these are places everyone looks and it's hard not to notice them. Somebody's mouth is a hell of a place to recognize what unit they're in.
>>39331673True, and officers will likely have additional insignia.But don't forget that every single one of the Astartes has an intuitive and highly intelligent nervous-system linked HUD. They can look at another marine from behind and know their name, rank, what they look like under their helmet and probably request data from the apothecaries on what their favorite brand of protein slop is.So long the IG can spot the one marine with gold trim and know to shout stuff at him first, they're fine. No need to know the specifics of their heraldry.
>>39331731Also i think we're trying to make them pretty aloof and mysterious cause they use such unorthodox tactics with the Terror-causing Wendigos so having them all look the same would be disorienting for anyone who didn't know specifically where to look
>>39331673As for the tabletop, perhaps adding the color as the trim on one shoulder.
>>39331257Like, they deliberately use a complicated and difficult tool to carve sculptures, because that increases the challenge? Sounds like something Marines would do. And I could absolutely see >>39331130marines pulling that as a joke on the initiates.
>>39331731>>39331673Also there is the fact of "Keep what you Kill" and each and every marine is going to eventually personalize and swag up their armor with trophies.>>39331772or add different swag bits. They basically gonna be as blinged up with gubbinz as an ork
>>39331767Hmm... detatchable officer insignia? When dealing with the normies, take the magnets out and stick 'em on your helmet. When trying to be legion, striking from outside low visibility, take them off?They work in ten man squads too, so they generally know who to listen to.
>>39331775It seems to be a recurring theme with this chapter, doesn't it?
>>39328459>>39328525/tg/, will you cease to amaze me?
Oh, forgot to mention. Added this thread to suptg, a couple clicks would ensure it doesn't disappear from there. >>39331836It's cold and dark in the long winter months in the fortress monastery. Gotta amuse yourself somehow.Yeti polo helps. Ice hockey is just a little too violent.
>>39331836well, when you live on an Ice Ball where most all you do is hunt beasties, Orks and Tyranids, waiting to get your numbers up and sending detachments to help fight alongside the Arbites, you need to find something to take your mind off of things.By the by, is there anymore stuff written about the Batman plotline thats goig on?
>>39331895I don't think so.
>>39331873It indeed has been a good day on /tg/ for us
>>39331873Have you anything to contribute, good sir?
This thread is up on suptg now. Link is here>http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=ice+wraithsand on the wiki page. Go and vote for it and the last one if you haven't brothers
>>39331272>>39331315The use of cryotherapy to hold the Red Thirst at bey is not completely successful. It leads to a condition the Ice Wraiths call "Zamorozhennyye Dusha", or "The Frozen Soul". The predatory hunger of the Red Thirst is still present, but it is tempered by a cold poise. Brothers succumbing to The Frozen Soul will often toy with their targets, spreading fear and confusion in order to better enjoy the panic of their prey. Some have even been known to converse with their prey before killing them.Such behaviour is often seen even after a brother falls to the Black Rage. The infamous "Wendigos" of the Ice Wraith Chapter are no less savage and murderous than their counterparts in the death companies of other Sanguinary chapters, but they posses a psychotic patience which allows them to act with stealth while still compelling them to hunt their prey. It is only the most far gone of the Wendigo who lapse into the berserker fury the other sons of Sanguinius are known.
>>39331919>>39331944I don't think I can. I'm just going to get caught up on everything before I do anything if that's okay.
Do the Ice Wraiths have any artifacts? Any relics of note?Could be a power sword excalibur or a hanky the emperor used once. But what have they killed and now have?
>>39331985Why we have the armour and weapons of Riddick of course!!!!!! Unique-looking relic blades and artificier armour that allows for a great range of movement while still offering protection to the wearer
>>39331965>are known.are known for.
>>39331965Ooooh... this is good fluff. The idea of a Wendigo toying with his prey, even letting it get close enough to FEEL the cold radiating off him. Gentle conversation, but always heading towards execution.Yes. This is metal cyborg vampires. This is the good shit.
>>39331982Check out the wiki page. it'll pretty much bring you up to speed
>>39331985Well they seem to be small melee weapon and cryo weapon focused, so...
>>39331985from the last threat>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.
>>39332039We need to get it all on the page.
>>39332041Thanks. So far this seems better than what I come up with. Anyway, what do these Beakies think about other chapters? How do they feel about Eldar?
>>39332039I need to mix in more of the cyborg element. Maybe they also use some form of neural augmentation to channel the Black Rage. Or they replace their blood with a form of autosanguine laced with anti-freeze.
>>39332039That sounds like Night Lords.
>>39331965I love it! That's fucking amazing. I think the Red Wendigos should draw inspiration from the Nightkin of Fallout. Invisible, psychotically broken individuals who whisper their litany in the shadows, the noise echoing throughout the halls and bases of our enemies. They watched, poised to strike, the whispers following their prey as they revel in their fear in an almost euphoric state. Some wendigos enjoy the sight of their prey commiting suicide, whilst others are enraged at their prize being taken from them.
>>39332096Or they tend to lose bits of themselves to frost bite during their initiations, so they often have a hand or foot replaced with bionics. A brother who gets in without losing at least a couple of toes is considered bad luck.
>>39332122Oh. Can't believe I missed that. He missed Raven Guard.
Where does terminator armor come into this, if at all?
>>39332137And they are kept in cryo, like Eversor assassins, until they are unleashed upon the enemy.
>>39331985The First High Marshal Riddick was well known for using a pair of small handblades, which he made from ripping ot the tusks of an Ork Warboss a,d beating him to death with his bare hands. These blades have been passed from one Riddick to the next as a sign of the office.Because of the Keep what you Kill philosophy each Riddick ends up introducing a new relic for the chapter with each successful crusade, whether the weaon was earned and weilded a a Riddick themselves, or was used by a brother of distinction in a particularly impressive battle.Because of the need for many Ice Wraiths to constantly decorate and build upon their weapons, when they die thier gear is often entombed within a great subterranian armory and displayed in a manner as a form of ancestral respect and remembrance fr the accomplishments of thier predecessors.It is very rare for any new Ice wraith to take upon themselves the weaponof a previous warrior. You keep what you kill, even in death, and all Ice Wraiths understand this and respectfully choose to build thier own legacy than borrow power from another.You keep what you kill. >>39332096They love to cyborg up thier mounts, and being Orbital Drop specialists, then tend to need to replace a few parts every now and again. Some warriors who love a bodypart fighting a great foe will often either take that foe's arm or weapon and choose to have it grafted on.>>39332157I'd imagine they have great respect for each other due to similar ways in which they work.
>>39331965>>39332039>>39332137How's this?Master of the Forge Ivan:The current Master of the Forge, Ivan is a technical savant even among a fairly technophilic chapter. He recently completely overhauled his personal wargear and armour to be more melee focused which only fueled the rumours that he has fallen to the Wendigo Curse. The Forgemaster himself seems to be spending an unhealthy amount time trying to see if cryothium can halt or reverse the effects of the curse.
>>39332187I have a feeling that you might be right.
>>39332167The Terminator formations of the Ice Wraiths are best known for their "winter storm" tactic. This involves deploying cryothuim grenades to freeze their enemies enmass and then smashing them to pieces with thunder hammers.
>>39332171Exactly. Either they return and are "put on ice" until next they're needed. Or they go full psychotic break and destroy their target, and everyone in a 20mile radius. In which case, they died in battle, on their feet. Keep what you take, your honour is yours today Wendigo.
>>39332210Go back to the last thread.His name was Chekhov, the Forge Master who when he's not locking himself in the forge he's being launched from a cannon. This maneuver is called Chekhov's Gun.
>>39332079Eldar? Xenos. Purge. Admittedly on the lower priority of xenos to purge. Gotta get the tyranids and orks first, they breed faster. Tau? ...who? Oh yeah. The Ultramarine's pet xeno crusade. Other Chapters... >>39330165 hits a lot of the right notes.We're the "Snowflakes" to a lot of chapters. One measly fuzzy tyranid encursion? Okay they know that there are actual reasons, but there's not a ton of respect around. Quite a small Chapter, known for assisting the cause of cooling systems more than military honors.. we're not exactly the Ultras over here.Still, the 'manders and a few others like the Iron Hands like us. And Deathwatch loves someone who lives for xeno hunting and brings their own blades.In fact for a Wraith, standard tyranids are seen as "naked" and a bit too squishy. Too fragile. Of course, other hive fleets make up for that in sheer numbers compared to Mi-Go's behemoths. But someone who will complain that the tyranids die too easily is someone Deathwatch will like.
>>39331836True. Similar to the Royal Navy, when you've got a bunch of people living in close confines with minimal contact with the outside world, everybody tries to get along ,not hold grudges, and indulges in occasional tomfoolery to pass the time. Do you think the Wraiths sing? Or do they try to sing and accidentally terrify the Orks with disembodied voices wailing on the wind? Add a little more to the Wendigo mythos.
>>39332210>The Forgemaster himself seems to be spending an unhealthy amount time trying to see if cryothium can halt or reverse the effects of the curse.A sure sign of "kholodno zavisimost" or "cold addiction", a common affliction of the Ice Wraiths falling to the Wendigo curse.
>>39332249kek. Changing that right now>>39332187added to the Wiki under "You keep what you kill"
>>39332102There's only so many ways to be a vampire.
>>39332210Brother Ivan is just some crazy guy that tends to think a bit too much out of the box, like that one time he sawed of his cryothrower, effectivly turning it into a flash freeze shotgunLector is the Forgemaster
>>39332249>This maneuver is called Chekhov's Gun.kek, still a better name than "steel rain"
>>39332267They sing their battle theme acapella.
>>39332256Kek.>>39332281But NLs aren't vampiric. This thread is making me think of this one chapter I made called the Tundra Talons.
>>39332249Oddly enough, Chekhov refuses to use actual guns. Blades, explosives.. all good.It's thought that the day Chekhov actually picks up a gun and fires it is the day the Chapter will fall because nothing less than that would have compelled him.
>>39332282You see ivan, when hold boolter like me, you shall never shoot the inaccurate for fear of shooting fingers! Ivan is the epitome of russian engineering and apparent madness among the Wraiths.
>>39332187But then with the "Keep what you Kill" view, how does the Chapter prevent all these weapons from just building up over the centuries? Perhaps there's a doctrinal need clause, like if the chapter is threatened with annihilation or a true, deep need arises, every battle-brother, initiate, and chapter serf goes into the armory and takes up a Relic Weapon. Imagine, a thousand Marines and assorted humans suddenly going from relatively standard armament to balls-out insane level of unusual weapons and ancient relics all over the place, re-sanctifiing the Chapter's legacy in the blood of their enemies?Sort of a Helm's Deep type of scenario: "Every man who can wield a weapon has been sent to the armory my lord."
>>39332384"You keep what you kill" Applies more to trophies and personalized weapons. Standard stuff like bolters and power armour are passed down through the ages but when a marine is buried it is recorded on a purity seal in his grave what wargear he used
>>39332384its only the weapons of the Riddick that are beeing kept as artifacts, and we're only up to the XXIIso the armory is actually quite small currently
>>39332364>>39332384I think Sanginius would drop his teacup during his tea party with Ferrus and Curze if he took a moment to see these marines.
>>39332384I kind of like it. You can't "keep" it, but you can break a battle brother's relic out of the armory and give him a few more kills. Thing is though, you can't keep anything from kills attributed to the wargear you took. It's not your kill. >>39332423I like this, standard gear is recorded but not kept. After all I suppose, he didn't kill for his Chapter-issued bolter. True relics and personal affects are. Makes me wonder if the Chapter goes on ork and csm raids to obtain new trophies. Once they've been soothed and purified by techpriests of course.
Any ideas about Dreadnoughts? How the various Ice Wraiths might look upon box-dom or any special shtick? Maybe they just shove the Dreads into the side of a glacier and plant flags with beacons to mark the position, then dig them out when needed?
>>39332468Hi dad! We killed like, AAAAAALLLLL the aliens and wore their skulls as hats after ate them! Do you like the drawings we made on the skulls? This one has me punching a daemon in the FACE!Dad? Why are you looking at me like that? Am I too cold again?
>>39332490Given the insanity of this chapter, they are bound to do something crazy.
Ok Brother Ivan is now officially in the chapter Heroes list>Brother Ivan Known for his lateral thinking and unorthodox methodology as well as thick native accent, Brother Ivan often creates insane combinations of weapons and armour out of ordinary materials and other weapons and armour. Attached to the command Squad of Captain Alexandrovich more to keep an eye on him than any other reason, Ivan's creations and ideas are usually prefaced by the words "You see brothers, when Ivan..."
>>39332502That's the charm of the Ice Wraiths.
>>39332496>Son, I don't know what to say.>You're all good boys.
>>39332469That's a good idea, a continuation of the "even in death I still serve" concept. Earning kills from beyond the grave, and aided by those who carry the spirit of the chapter forward. I can see this working quite well. I doubt the Wraiths explicitly go on raids to gain trophy, but if they're fighting and they see an enemy commander with some horns that would make a good spear or a defiled Land Raider, they might make an extra effort to kill the previous owners with minimal damage to the artifact in question. As in: "Forward brothers, I shall kill that traitor with his own helmet or my name's not Riddick XIV!"
>>39332364>image related >>39332490Half the time, they're still covered in ice as they attack.Since they can't melt out of sight like normal wraith marines, they half bury themselves and jump out at anyone who gets too close like a goddamn trapdoor spider with guns and freeze rays.
>>39332534Maybe they plant Dreadnoughts into glaciers on ice worlds as a form of mines so when filthy Eldar try using camouflage to blend with snow, they regret hiding near the glacier when a dread pops out of it?
>>39332490guyswhat ifthe dreanaughtsare the ice sculptures the marine makes during his initiation?they're are just the alpha print, if a wraith gets boxed, a negative will be made of the sculpture, the tech bits and the wraith placed, and then water and cryothium will be poured in.once its solidified the ice golem gets activated to once again slaughter prey on the battlefield
>>39332591>dreadnought frozen soul"Well well boys, you made a right old mistake didn't you? See, that campfire warms my old heart... I froze my heart you see, so I would stop doing what I'm about to do. Well no, that's a lie. I froze it so I'd stop enjoying what I'm about to enjoy doing..." >>39332594In that case I'm worried about the guy making the giant Emperor statue.
>>39332594This... This could actually work.
>>39332496such is life.>>39332490I'd imagine that they aren't too common, given that if they don't die in battle then the Black Rage takes them.The few Dreads that they have are, which is probably about only three, they tend to be more gubbinzed up than a Warboss on a Forge World. Also they usualy have one arm with a Freezer. the other and is usually either a giant knife, or some other wierd thing they earned. Such as Honorable Dreadaught Tepes, who has a giant spear made up of a dozen Eldar Weapons welded together in honor of his glorious victory over the Eldar before succumbing to their number before being put in the Dreadnaught. Whenever h gets awaken for duty, he finds a placeto hide before springing out and going on an "impalement spree"also >>39332571 is ofs having idea.>>39332594we already stated the Ice sculptor thing is a joke, they probably stop them half way when they are finished with their laughs.
>>39332384"Keep what you kill" originally meant you were entitled to the property and social status of whoever you killed. For space marines this would mean a license to take trophies from enemies they've slain, and possibly indicate you could only claim the weapons of a fallen battle brother if you killed the enemy who slew Them. Thus, the weapons and armor of Riddick XII may only be wielded by the marine who successfully hunts down and executes Korraletch, the Dark Eldar Haemonculus who slew the twelf Riddick with a poisoned blade. This would also mean promotions can be based on being able to take out the enemy which had killed the prior occupant of a position. So if you slay the 'nid lictor which killed your sargeant, then you become the new sargeant."Keep what you kill" in this sense leads to the Ice Wraiths being obsessed with vendettas against particularly dangerous foes. These "blood hunts" can take decades or centuries and span hundreds or thousands of light years.
>>39332594I like the ice dreadnought idea. Helps make the chapter unique in a way.
>>39332701>Helps make the chapter unique in a waylike we weren't already?
>>39332695oooooooohhhhhh...I like this one
>>39332645I love it. But I wouldn't be worry about a marine making an Emperor statue for his dreadnaught. Just worry if he makes a tri-beam like dread that has a freeze ray, flamer, and assault cannon on one arm.
>>39332591>>39332571Loving these ideas for the Dreads. Just buried all over the planet at strategic sites and woken up with a coded signal that starts warming up the sarcophagus to wake the Marine inside up. The:"SUPRISE FOUL XENOS, IT IS I, ANCIENT PUSHKIN!">>39332645Also the danger that a rare Dread doesn't go entirely to sleep or something goes wrong and when his battle brothers come to put him back in the glacier, he goes all Frozen Soul. Maybe there's a wandering solitary Frozen Dreadnought that the Chapter is constantly trying to hunt down, a game of cat-and-mouse?
>meanwhile, with the Ice Wraith Techmarines
>>39332695This is an awesome idea! Kinda Dark Souls-ish.
>>39332712It also means that a Marine who has to give his Brother the Emperor's Peace inherits his vendettas and obligations.
>>39332695I'd say the promotion side of things certainly helps, but it's not going to guarentee anything. If the chapter serf manages to near-accidentally kill the daemon that killed the first company captain, he's still a serf.Admittedly a serf who has a goddamn daemon trophy and can probably relax back at the fortress with the admiration of the entire planet of normies and some marines. >>39332714"MWAHAHAHA! I AM MECHA-EMPEROR NOW!">get down from there petyr, you're ridiculous"BOW DOWN, PUNY XENOS!">throne damn it this is probably heresy. get down before an inquisitor notices or something"BITCH YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO, I'M THE EMPEROR NOW">i fucking knew this would happen. >>39332761Goddamnit Ivan. That shouldn't work. Why does it work? - Every techpriest
>>39332774Well if you don't, what are you saying about your brother and yourself?Only the big stuff mind. Like trophies. You don't inherit his library fines or that time he lent someone a spare cryo flask.
>>39332747I think the IWs would like that idea.>>39332777Petyr has gone mad.
>>39332761Brother Grigori, check this out, we dared Ivan to lick the tank and his tounge got frozen stuckTechpriest Lector is already preparing a new mechanical tounge
>>39332777>I'd say the promotion side of things certainly helps, but it's not going to guarentee anything. >If the chapter serf manages to near-accidentally kill the daemon that killed the first company captain, he's still a serf.>Admittedly a serf who has a goddamn daemon trophy and can probably relax back at the fortress with the admiration of the entire planet of normies and some marines.Right, it's understood that he won great honor for himself and the chapter by that kill.

>>39332801No but you become responsible for caring for his serfs, fulfilling his oaths of moment, returning his wargear to the chapter, and tending to any other matters of honor he left outstanding.
>>39332777I'm imagining the local tech priests being something like this with fuzzy cloaks and a tendency towards ice puns. It got old after the first thousand years so now all the Marines just ignore them
>>39332846A few hundred years in, it's said, a techmarine came up with a new ice pun that had the entire fortress in giggles for a week.Strange thing, that techpriest ended up a magos. It's tradition now for the priests to try and think up an as-yet unheard of pun. Several millennium later, no luck. And a couple very bored marines.
>>39332846But do they have the STC for chainsaw faces?
>>39332950Who the fuck let Ivan talk to the wendigos again?And who put a piano there? Looking at you Petyr. Crazy dreadnought..
>>39332950They're musicians?! Their flaw grants them musical talent?!

>>39333034Isn't that what one chapter did until the Changling tricked them?
>>39333043So we have loyalist Noise Marines?
I know we're not supposed to speak the names of the ones turned into wendigos, but I still remember the day it happened to Brother Ivan (Sr.)No matter how hardwe tried, we did not manage to rid him of his many "inventions" so we ended up flash freezing him with them. we obviously needed a bigger drop pod then usual..We discovered a moon circling a planet close to our own home planet, completely infested by the tyranids. this was the day we decided to droped ivan. er had to go in quickly, so ivan only droped about 3 hours earlier so he had time do defrost and become activenever would I have imagined it would be the easiest workday of our lives.
>>39333043Oh holy shit, you just reminded me of something perfect. Wardruna.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz3O0JftA5wThey can do some creepy shit. And just plain appropriate music that fits the planet and culture.

>>39333115I mean seriously, does this not sound like an average day in the Wraith's chapel?>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbgvgk50e94 Hell, the Ice Wraiths could well be known for their non-Gothic war songs before a big fight.
>>39333135I'm now imaging a squad of Wendigos giving someone an experience equal to pic related.

>>39332774Last thread I made a post that said stuff to the effect that if you burn something, you're not killing it but removing all other ownership but that of the Emperor and thus offering it up.Understandably didn't catch on. But if true, then if you give the Emperor's peace by fire, you're instead giving him up to the Emperor.Maybe all marines carry a single incendiary explosive to immolate themselves and avoid weighing down their brothers.Actually taking on a brother's debts is a mark of no homo affection and honor. >>39333364Helvegen is probably the most appropriate for the Chapter in both sound and translated lyrics. Try that song.
Well, I gotta sleep for tonight.Here have this as a goodnight gift
>>39333525I better see that on the 1d4chan page this time tomorrow.
>>39333500Or taking on a brothers honor debts is a vital part of freeing his soul to enter the Emperor's service. The fallen brother is unbound from mortal concerns and thus his soul's honor and duty belong only to the Emperor thereafter. Ice Wraiths may fear that a spirit still bound by honor debts may be trapped in this world and will haunt the living until the debt is expunged.
>>39333749That would make for the coolest game of Pajama Sam.
>>39333749This really works with the honour the ancestors thing we have.
>>39333622There you go
Bump for the Emperor.
A bump for lord marshal Riddick.
>>39335563Ack, sorry, on phone.
I COME BACK FROM A SHITTY NIGHT, STILL HALFWAY IN PYJAMAS, I CHECK THE OLD THREAD AND I SEE YOU CHUCKLES MAKING ANOTHER ONE.I AM SO HAPPY.
>>39337356Do you like Forge Master Chekhov?
>>39337356>I CHECK THE OLD THREAD AND I SEE YOU CHUCKLES MAKING ANOTHER ONELucky bastard, my threads never get this kind of attention. How much for lessons?
>>39335751oh.. thought you lived in Australia for a sec.
>>39337410YES.ESPECIALLY THE EVERYTHING PART.>>39337449I ACTUALLY JUST GOT LUCKY WITH THE ROLLS THESE ALL ANONS ARE WHAT MADE THE THREAD AND SHOULD GET THE BOON FOR IT, NOT ME.
>>39332747The wind was cold and the snow was deep, but Brother Prokop could only feel the warmth of his blood trickling down his side. For hours he had walked, his left leg stiff as the Dreadnought's attack had splintered the servos and artificial musculature that allowed it move freely. Nine other brothers had accompanied him, ten souls dancing across the ice as they hunted the Wendigo-in-Iron, laughing and brave. He had hunted before, a perfunctory task to track the beast once a man until its engines might die and the corpse brought back for burial with honors. He would hunt again, without mercy or restraint and mark his face with blood hard earned.His head pounded loud enough to drown out the wind as he lurched along. His pack was torn open, its generator useless; soon the batteries would run out and his body would be as stiff as his leg. A cough brought more blood to fall from his wounds but no warmth. The beast killed Fyodor first, erupting from a snowbank and rending him in twain with its claws. Then fell Ygor, doused in freezing liquid and armor shattered to die naked in the snow. Artur died next, crushed underfoot. Why was he on the ground? Makar tired to shoot it, but...was it Makar or Oleg? Was Oleg there? Brother Prokop stopped and shook his head, the helmet turning slowly as the armor's powered ebbed and his vision dimmed. He was no longer cold.
>>39337788Hands no longer shaking, he removed his helmet and dropped it, leaving it behind as he staggered onward. The shelter was somewhere ahead of him; he was sure of it, as long as he kept moving forward. He would rest and eat then gather weapons and fell the beast, reciting his brother's names. He didn't look back. He could hear it over the wind, ever since he ran fast into the fog. He had heard that some of the Wendigo liked to taunt their prey, to play with it like a child torturing a bug. Laughter escaped his cracked and bleeding lips, how boring this beast, who only followed behind him and watched. Coming to a stop, he closed his eyes and fell forward, faintly trying to crawl before giving up. The roar was deafening now.Turning on his back he saw the ice encrusted beast, the Wendigo-in-Iron who wore his cage like armor. Weakly he tried to reach upwards, to grasp it, to fight. His dim thoughts turning only to violence and bloodshed, to avenge the comrades his tongue no longer could name, to consume the beast and take from it the souls and courage of those it had killed. His arm dropped to his side and all that was left was the gurgling in his throat as the world turned indistinct. And in the back of his mind, a memory long forgotten of a warm hearth and wise elders accompanied him into the dark."To see the Wendigo is to become the Wendigo."
Wendigo Librarians, anyone?
>>39337873They've already been mentioned.
>>39337516Oh hey OP. What's up?
>>39338166Hey Pagefag, how much stuff do we have on Nixarteria and its culture?
>>39338199We have some stuff about the planet itself but not a whole lot about anything on itri
>>39338210It right now. Jesus mobile sucks
>>39338166NOT WHOLE LOT, DOING HOMEWORK N SHIT. HOW ABOUT YOURSELF FELLOW TRIP+NAMEFAG?
>>39338210What exactly do we need to write up?
>>39338225Just on a train. Going to take a final. That I haven't studied for. I blame all of you. That's ok though.
>>39338226Well anything that we've come up with regarding the human cultures of the planet isn't there, as well as most details about stuff that isn't directly involved with the Wraiths themselves. I'm thinking of editing the page later and giving the planet and chapter history/traditions their own sections. I also need to upload the different armour schemes and whatnot
>>39338246How populated is the planet? We're going with strong Russian vibe and Russia is fairly empty, especially once you get past the Urals.
>>39338292We were thinking pretty sparsely. Inuit-like nomads for the most part, with maybe 1 permanent settlement that cropped up inside the glacier where the fortress monastery is
>>39338299I think maybe a few permanent settlements, mostly just Ice Wraith outposts populated by chapter serfs and the occasional nomad camp. If for no other reason than to have trans-Siberian railway-esque scenarios.
>>39338292We figured native population is sparse, with inuit-like culture, while fortress monastery is rather more Russian-themed with Inuit undertones
>>39338338That could be interesting, however I remember the "emperor's nightmare" chapter that has a bajillion pages on having a similar vein
>>39338363Could be, I didn't really check their fluff beyond a cursory glance. I'll do it now.
>>39338376What if we did tunnels? We already have a vampire/subterranean thing going, we could have tunnel networks that connect the various outposts of the planet under the ice
>>39338376fuck me, that's a lot of writefaggotry. That's tl;dr for me right now - please sum up what I have to avoid>>39338381Tunnels as in Tibetans tunnelling under the world, Good Omens-like? All right, I'll think about it
>>39338394Yeah tunnels and passages would be cool. As for the nightmare thing I think their homeworld has like a massive railway guild and noble/trade houses with railway being the primary mode of transport across the planet between hives
>>39338394Massive caravans heading deep underground to bypass blizzards. Fuel, food, and energy carefully rationed as they crawl through freezing, danger infested tunnels. Entire tribes wiped out by claustrophobia and paranoia turning them against each when supplies got low.
>>39338422So the whole population lives underground? We need to scrap low-tech approach to the natives in this case, you won't dig tunnels in sub-zero temperatures with primitive tools
>>39338432No no the caves are a means of transport for the chapter. The nomads primarily live above ground it would be off-worlders or hivers that use the tunnels
>>39338422>>39338432The nomads should fear the tunnels as full of monsters (wendigos and yetis and marines)
>>39338443That's better. Do we have a Fortress-Monastery, or we rather take the decentralised approach with separate crypts/outposts? I'd rather like to go with gothic horror theme tunnel-wise, it tickles my fancy
>>39338432No, the tunnels are built by the Ice Wraiths for their own purposes to connect their outposts without having to deal with the issues of the surface on transport. The natives use them when things get to rough outside, but it's very risky as animals, including leftover 'Nids, live in the tunnels, access points are few and far between and are difficult to open, the IW will kick them out if they're impeding tunnel usage, and automated supply trains have no issues with barreling through a group of people at 100kph.
>>39338472There is a Fortress-Monastery. There are also outposts.
>>39338472Go back to first thread and search for monastery. Its basically if Castlevania were covered in a three meter layer of ice>>39338492
>>39338492What about Wendigos sleeping around in crypts/stasis chambers here and there in the tunnels? It could create some spooky legends about unwitting fools stumbling into them.
>>39338531Why would you stick Wendigos in random places in the tunnels?
>>39338522ahh, right. I was preoccupied with the colour scheme, I missed that
>>39338534I mean half-forgotten repositories (only visited by Chaplains) in the constantly changing castle/fortress layout being accessible from the tunnels, not purposefully drilling holes and sticking people in them
Welp I gotta go try to scrape together a passing grade on this final, so I'll see you gents later this afternoon (here anyway). I'll add whatever we come up with to the page when I rejoin you. Emperor be with you brothers
Do the IW Techmarines have any...Specialized modifications?
>>39332274Ivan is guy who invented campfire made of iceWhy? Nobody knows
>>39339885Ivan was originally a member of a branch of the Ice Wraiths designed explicitly to combat orks, to fight the greenskins these marines where created to think like them, but all but one of them were killed when their cryopods malfunctioned, the last one was Ivan.
Alright, we should probably get cracking on the symbol, don't we?So far, the suggestions i've seen are a Blood drop in a snowflake, a fanged deer skull, and a fanged deerskull in front of a snowflake. Possibly with wings as horns, but that was decided to make it to busy.
Day 73We’ve been fighting these filthy greenskins for what feels like forever now.No matter how many we shoot, there always seem more coming.We managed to retreat into what seems like an abandoned fortress behind a mountain passage. The choke point is at least helping us to stop the Orks advancing onto our position. I do fear however what will happen if they do find a way to finally breach our defenses. Some of the men have been trying to get an old distress beacon working again. They say they managed to send a short message before the thing went up in smoke.May the Emperor guide us through this darkness.
>>39340431Day 74I slept uneasy this night, it was if though the ground was trembling, almost like Orks managed to get through the passage and run wild in the fortress. No screams though, so this couldn’t be the case. Dark clouds are building on the horizon. It seems as though even the planet itself is now working against us. Could these be the final days?
>>39340447Day 75The dark clouds have enveloped the entire sky, and a thick blanket of snow the ground. This seems to not only confuse us, but also the Orks as some of the men reported that they stopped advancing onto our position. There is talk about us trying to attack and slaughter as many of the greenskins as long as they’re still confused.
>>39340458Day 76I have seen something. Something I believed was impossible. Something I didn't even dared to dream about.We went through the mountain pass and discovered an empty Ork camp. Wondering where they could have went, me and some men scouted ahead. And there we saw it.It was an Ork, a single one, but something was different about him.These shivers, the way he was rubbing his arms, it wasn't because he was cold and tried to warm himself up, it was something I have never seen an Ork do.He... was scarred.He seemed to be running and trying to hide from something.It was then I noticed a deep dark humming. A gust of wind carrying a lot of snow engulfed the Ork. All I could see through the snow was a faint red glow. As it finally settled, the Ork was ripped in half, the corpse completely frozen over.The humming got louder, and seemed to be originating from behind us.Through the blizzard that was becoming stronger a voice told us to get of this planet as long as fast as we possibly could. Without questioning I ran back to the fortress to tell the others.But they wouldn't believe me, they said leaving this post would be heresy and that we should fight till our last breath.Was it really just my mind playing tricks on me?
>>39340340im voting blood drop on a snowlake or pic related
>>39340478Where's the pic?
>>39340478and by pic related ive meant
here is a something I madehavent used photoshop since collage so this didnt quite come out the way i wanted it to
>>39340812Too complicated. Maybe remove the splatter and have two droplets come off the flake's tips?
Ok I'm baaaack>>39340812I like this.
>Transmission Recieved>Authenticating...>...>Clearance level authenticated>...>Administratum Planetary Report: 4e697861727465726961 (Nixarteria)>Security Level: Orange -If you are viewing this document without sufficient clearance, report to your superiors IMMEDIATELY->Planetary Designation: Phi Lambda (Feral), Ice>Additional classifications (if any): Astartes Chapter Homeworld (Ice Wraiths)>Imperial Tithe level: Solutio Nil, (Astartes fiefdom)>Threat level: High (Xeno, Tyranid) NOTE: Resident Chapter currently suppressing xeno presence. Guard or Deathwatch reinforcements may be required in the future.>...>Description begins, report by Plenius MalnanNixarteria is a planet of bitter cold, orbiting it's star on one of the widest orbits in the Imperium that still permits human survival without climate controlled buildings and can be easily used as a dramatic example of a complete Ice World.The planet is covered in numerous Minor Biomes of varying temperature and hostility, notably the large mountain ring known locally as the "Ring of Paradise" contains temperatures and greenery more suited to temperate Imperial planets than the rest of the Ice World and the "Daemon's Chasm" (Local name only, no Chaos incursions have been reported in millenia), a massive undergound cavern that contains a unique ecosystem largely involving fungi. The majority of the planet however can be divided into three Major Biomes.
>>39340977The two poles are best known as the Wastes, due to the surface of ice and snow being regularly blasted with intense snowstorms that drive even the hardy local wildlife away. The largest native lifeform in the Wastes are small rodent-like creatures that burrow under the surface. The polar wastes contain both the resident Astartes Chapter on the Northern pole and the entrenched foullness of the xeno incursion on the Southern pole. During the summer months, both forces emerge from their fortresses to wage war over the surface of the planet before retreating in the winter months where warfare is near impossible to conduct with any strategy. Underground however, both sides create and maintain twisting tunnels through ice and snow to quickly travel out of sight and weather, the non-uniform nature of the tunnels serving to disorient the opposing force. Tunnel skirmishes, unlike surface battles, continue all year round. During my inspection I heard the sound of distant battle before I was escorted to safer tunnels.
>>39340988Closer to the equator are the two halves of the vast Tundra biome, where the short hardy plantlife grows between the rocky surface of the planet. The infamous "Yeti" xeno mounts of the Ice Wraiths are to be found here, eating the vegetation or occasionally scavenging from corpses who fell to cold or predators. A few sites in this biome have been marked for possible mining efforts should the planet rise to a higher classification and Imperial industry efforts can begin. Some travelling feral Clans travel from sites of interest within this biome, occasionally making aspirant tithes difficult.At the equatoral band lies a dense Taiga-like forest. The majority of Nixarteria's human population and the larger Clans reside here. There are plenty of local names for the forest involving local superstition and spirits. An unfortunate failing of many feral worlders. "The Spirit Forest", "Worldforest" and "Forest of the Stars" are the closest Gothic translations of the most common names. I was informed by my Astartes escorts that fighting is often extremely close quarters and sudden here, as the noble protectors attempt to prevent any biomass from being devoured by the repulsive xeno behemoths. A local legend mentioned a tyranid of monstrous size who would devour the largest trees within seconds. Presumably exaggeration by the natives, however to hold off complete destruction on a homeworld of our beloved Emperor's angels of death speaks to the xeno's resiliance if nothing else.
>>39341000>Local Governance Description begins, report by Plenius MalnanRule regarding the various Nixarterian "Clans of Men" is held entirely by the Ice Wraith Chapter Master and Lord Marshall Riddick XXI at the time of this recording. The foresight and intelligence of the local citizenry simply lacking to allow local governance at a major level. Great Clan Meets are held every major lunar year (Approximately 50 Terran years) where any major planet-wide decisions are made by the Chapter Master and his advisors. Many aspirants are often gathered at this time, however at every minor lunar year (10 Terran Years) the Chapter will seek out aspirants at traditional meeting sites. Minor inter-Clan disputes may also be resolved by the Astartes at this point. The trials the Chapter then puts their initiates through are, of course, private to the Chapter. Any logs or documents involving such can only be pursued at their Fortress-Monastery.The only well-known Rite is the Yeti Capture, where an initiate must locate and bend one of the local xeno lifeforms to his authority. The Yeti then becomes the initiate and later marine's mount and companion upon some form of technological augmentation.
>>39341020And that's all I got. Should have mentioned the tunnel tribes in the polar wastes and probably a whole ton of other stuff, but I forgot.
>>39340853>>39340812i was missing the outlines...anyways, looks much better now
>>39341070Now that's something I can see on a pauldron. The blood drop denotes lineage, The ice is goddamn ice and everyone likes skulls in the Imperium.
>>39341070make blood drops smaller and we have heraldy
>>39341119now with 100% more transparent background
>>39341070Seems a tad overcomplicated, its much more silly compared to our forbares. Give me a second And I have a simpler one.
>>39341181Beautiful. This chapter is one of /tg/'s best works.
Armor anon here. This is my version, though you may not like it.Also its hard to find a good Blood Angel blood drop to crop.
>>39341213And will propably be forgotten just like Emperors Nightmares and Reasonable Marines(or whatever was their chapter called)
>>39341181This. So much this
>>39341243They were called "The Knights Inductor" if I recall.Also I liked the Emperor's Nightmares, and the reason no one talks about the Reasonables is because people see them as mary sues.
file name related
>>39341243Knights Inductor. And you're probably right but I'll remember it.
>>39341243I still like the Conservators, Greyskulls and Nightmares. The Reasonable are just a tad TOO reasonable for 40k though I admit. Need to be more pointlessly metal.
>>39341263I see them as mary sues too,but Nightmares were good and forgotten. They had own heraldy,own organisation and tons of writefaggotery, i think even more then angry marines. We musnt forget the Wraiths
>>39341323They need to be an option for the Chapter Master game like the Nightmares.
Now I want to see a Deathwatch squad with all-/tg/ Chapters. Joke-Chapters aside.Nightmare, Wraith, Conservator, Inductor... who else we got?
>>39341323What matters is not if others don't remember.What matters is that we keep them in our hearts, and find joy in the process of making them.So long as they are within our hearts, even if their names are never spoken again, then they will have never died.Also we can bug Blazboros for drawfaggotry, He did art for the Nightmares, so he might enjoy doing the Wraiths as well.>>39341393Blood Jaguars, I can see them and the Ice Wraiths hangin out together.
>>39341393Knights Repentin or something like that.
>>39341407Dangit, forgot my pic
We dont even have "official" color scheme.This one on 1d4chan is for Blood Wendigos.We still havent decided what our insignia be likeI vote for>>39341274
>>39341181Is now up on the wiki page as our heraldry. That one is my personal favourite and seemed to be the consensus. It also has a nice mix of all the elements we had previously discussed
>>39341407Oh fuck yes how did I forget about them? >>39341418Reading up on them now, Knights Repentant is the tag you want. >>39341181Dis one.
>>39341440We do have an "official" colour scheme and all official variants I just haven't posted them yet. I have them saved on my computer at home and it's first on my list when I do get home. I'm on mobile right now
>>39341440The Colors are earlier in the thread, Page Fag just hasn't updated them to the page.>>39329466>>39329514>>39329685>>39329720>>39330188>>39341453No! I'm not opening that! I can't cry right now in the college library.
>>39341507>>39341509So we are almost finished and just need some more information
>>39341528Yes. I need to update and expand the page to encompass new info about the planet, add the colour schemes, and maybe make a dedicated writefaggotry page depending on how much we get. There was also talk of fleshing out Hive Fleet Mi-go more and I know OP created a thread to roll them up yesterday
A Squad of Wraiths and a squad of Lamenters meet up.How well do they get along?Also I might do writefaggotry about the Wraiths depending on if my brain feels like working today
>>39341274Nah it's too snowy and the blood angels thing is not an important part of the chapter. I think the symbol should be something like this, but drawn better, a simple design that's easy to paint on models should anyone actually make these guys would be more useful.
>>39341070Put a single blood drop on the forehead. Maybe simplify it a little too, to many cracks and stuff.
>>39341581They're both BA successors that the rest of the imperium aren't too fond of so...
>>39341581Maybe the Wraiths gave the Lamenters some advice and the Lamenters tried acting out the madness of the Wraiths and that caused their bad luck.
>>39341617Emperor Dammit Ivan!
>>39341640Eh, he thinks like an Ork, don't worry about him that much.
>>39341640It makes sense. And at a time the Lamenters were free from the BAs' flaw. I guess spending time with family is how Tzeentch decided to do them in. Are the apothecaries in the Wraiths insane too?
>>39341561>quick recap of stuff so farMi-Go is technically just a little (numerically speaking) splinter. Probably from Behemoth who want to eat some biomass from past battlefields and rejoin the swarm. Presumably the Wraiths are in between them and the juicy biomass.Tactics are fucking HUGE furbeasts with highly toughened leathery carapaces who eat everything in their path. We might want to have some Shadow of the Colossus stuff going on. There's also a parasitic broodfather lurking somewhere who's probably shoving tyranid babbies in some poor yetis somewhere to get those big 'nids in the first place. Fuck that guy. >>39341703They're a little... creepy. Blood rituals, odd runes and bone charms with stinking bestial pelts.. you'd almost think you were in a space wolf base.
>>39341730Those rituals probably did it.
what if we had an internal power struggle between the apothecaries and the techmarines? One is trying to stave off the flaw with cryotech and the other with blood rituals/magic. It would make an interesting conflict
>>39341745What happens when they go Wendigo? do they remove all the frostbite susceptible bits (Lips, Ears, Nose, ect cetera) and look completely horrifying?
>>39341703I'd imagine that the Apothicares would be a cross between >>39341419 and pic related with a bit of the Bloodborne Healing Church blood ministration vibe going on as well.It is a solemn duty to keep the geneseed as well as care for the trophies of the falen
>>39341730WRONGTHEY'RE KRAKEN.>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.HOPE MY CAP TALK IS ANNOYING BY NOW.
>>39341803Probably.>>39341806I like it. That's an apothecary's job. To protect the future of the chapter. Even if they die.
>>39341831Actually I just imagine everything with the voice of Mr Torgue from borderlands and it makes me very happy
>>39341854that's how Devastator Captain grimsky has talked ever since his ears fell off.
>>39341854You mean Brother Torgue of the Devastator Squad? That man just hasn't been the same since he hlp Ivan set that campfire with Ice. I hear he's been going in to battle with nothing but Cryotium grenades, Flakk Grenades, and has been loading them up in his Bolter.Somtimes I worry about him.
>>39341891Well we DID tell him to advance if no more orders came through... He just stood in the snow for 6 days without his helmet
>>39341896I thought his ears fell off and he had a voxcoder wired into his brain, he doesn't know everyone else has still got their ears though.
>>39341923Of course he knows everyone else still has their ears. He's just a dick.
>>39342006Kek'd out loud
>>39341923Oh Well, at least he has some usefullness because of it. Remember when his squad where facing some Noise Marines? He just ran right up to them and started to suplex them to death. I think one of these Noise marines even made some kind of moan.
>>39342031It's just a problem that sometimes his voxcoder says his thoughts rather than merely what he intended to say....then again, he might just be being a dick again and pretending so he can insult people. We're already on thin ice with the Sororitas, we do not need our Brothers mentioning they'd "warm them up all winter long".
>>39341803Just realized something, looking through 1d4chan.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Brotherhood_of_the_MegalithThese guys have Death Company called wendigos too, with what appears to be no lips.
>>39342100Just send Sister Ethel of the Order Sanguine Purity to him, she'd be into that. Lets see him backpedal and squirm when confronted by a randy 93 year old nun who is half scar tissue and half robot.
>>39341581Sent on what the intel suggested was a basic mission to clear out the tail end of a genestealer invasion on a quite heavily defended agri world, the ice wraiths drop a single tactical squad on the world to bolster and guide the guardsmen stationed there.Clearing out the last of the stealers was a success, with only a single marine losing their life from the broodlord itself they ice wraiths triumphantly leave the cave system the genestealers had been hiding in, only to be caught off guard by the screeching sound of drop pod engines slowing the orbital drop. After voxing the strike cruiser floating above to say that they already purged the xenos from the world and do not need further assistance and getting a confused reply asking what he was babbling about, the squad sergeant readied his men and set towards the drop zone for these unknown pods. Getting there they were nearly blinded by the bright sun reflecting off the golden armoured men in front of them, running to and fro in a hurried panic, moving ammunition out the pods. As their eyes adjusted they realised they were looking at a chapter birthed from the same progenitors as them. At first this was a welcome surprise, but then they remembered what chapter it was.Before the wraiths could even alert the unaware lamenters to their existences sirens went off all around them and anti air guns let rip. This break from the quiet made even the lamentors look up, only to find the assault had already started. It was at this point the marines caught each others eyes. A devastator, looking at what he saw as reinforcements, dropped his clawed and charred heavy bolter to remove his helmet in order to shout out "I'm glad someone got the message, we were worried our vox casters were not working. It looks like the tyranids are already here!"The Wraiths, shocked at this news sent the news back to the cruiser with the last words wringing out:"Fucking Lamenters..."
>>39342154Honestly, considering he's half frostbite and half mechanicum implant.. >>39342158There's a lot of repeated words in 40k. How many Knights again? We're doing fine. Is cool.
>>39342158Keeping the name is fine, just drop the no lips thing. There's no real reason to have their lips removed.
>>39342195we need our lips anyways to hum our battlehymn
>>39342137Fuck me, their chaplains are called angakuts.Ours might be Sangikuqqs, but they're derived from THE SAME WORD.
>>39342724No those are our librarians. As of right now our chaplains are just chaplains. Also in light of these discoveries I'm going to vote we veer more towards the Russian theme and away from the Inuit theme
>>39342724And every culture inevitably comes from Terra. Think of it like Siberia and Alaska/northern Canada. Similar cultures, similar pressures but divergent.
>>39342724Anyone thought that maybe we have closer relations with that chapter as a way of building the bond between us both being sons of Sang.
>>39342876Wouldn't think so, that chapter is seriously isolated. Like, reverting to superhuman cavemen on a forgetten rock kind of isolated.
>>39343018That's probably something that should be addressed. Next thread maybe? We're on page nine.
Wendigo apothecary (No eyelids) and a Sleepless marine (Buggered catalepsan node) get into a staring contest, what happens?
New thread time brothers
>>39343124They tear each other apart. Staring at each other the entire time. Probably the Sleepless sins because he can wait for the wendigo to fall asleep. Even if your eyelids froze off, their mind needs to sleep.
>>39343188It's someone else's turn. I'm on a tablet.
>>39343211If someone could get an archive running, i guess i could start a new thread.
>>39343267Isn't it already auto-archived?
>>39343196>Even if your eyelids froze offImplying he waited for them to freeze.
>>39343288Oh, so it is. Didn't check.
>>39343349New thread is go.
>>39343267>>39343288Archive.more auto-archives. suptg needs to be requested and voted.For our purposes, suptg is better because we can include a link to all relevant threads using tags.
