>>47366315>>47366299>>47366326For Homeworld being dead it could be that the surface is dead but the many deep and huge canyons are habitable.The world is old. Old as balls and nearly dead. There is just about enough activity in the core to maintain a bare minimal magnetosphere.The plate tectonics has slowed to a crawl and stopped long ago.There are some deep canyons and great crevasses caused either by some earlier geological upheaval or the planet getting blatted by some serious space rockDown here the earth is still warm, crops can be grown, animals tended.
>>47366579Fuck rollan on this. We are the Red Knights.
>>47366617It is indeed original, the surprising thing is that it isnt an official chapter. Not everything has to be marysueedge awsome, I find this name highly tasteful and fitting with the theme of space marine chapter names being basic yet apocryphal and mythological in a way to the rest of the imperium.
>>47366642You have my vote on this name too
>>47366628Surface could be only large castle structures and temples/cathedrals made of grey stone and sanguinius statures>>47366610>>47366617technically they are space knights>MF(aith)W orks sighted again
>>47366641Possible Assault Marine Colour Scheme, Ideas Welcome
>>47366628Perhaps the space marines live in fortress in the non-canyon inhabitable surface area? And the populace lives in the canyons? Creating a geographic barrier between them and keeping the marines hidden
>>47366628Honestly, the first thing a dead medieval world makes me think of is a surface looking like something straight out of dark souls. The endless cavernous ruined hallways continueing for miles upon miles into the planet's crust. Only protected by a small number of knights who are themselves, endangered.A prevailing feeling of the end being near, not just for the planet, but for mankind as a whole.
>>47366642>>47366649I'm backing Space Knights too.
>>47366705What if the sun is dying too? Just to get it a bit more grimdark
>>47366696>two chapter symbols, double studded legs

>>47366749It could be with purpoase, like Sanguinia,a world dedicated to Sanguinius worship,and the mourning Space Knights adorn mostly back armorwith red details>>47366754Good one, try what i said above, mostly blackwith red details
>>47366754who rolled red knights? also the chapter symbol goes on the left arm and the squad symbol on the right unless you wanted it to be reversed (some chapters do because lols)
>>47366805Aw shit, that's looking dopegood work man, this scheme got my vote
>>47366754>>47366805>>47366817Number two seems the most fitting for what's been rolled.>Knights ruling a dead medieval world>Clad in black, detailed in the red blood of their martyr Primarch and bretheren
>>47366830Imagine Imperial Knights in this scheme
>>47366838They'd look fucking dope, that's what
This chapter needs Power Maces
>>47366817Chapter Master in the most knightly of power armours
>>47366873That's a flail anon.And power flails would be ever cooler than power maces.
>>47366894Thats..actually cooler>>47366890Chapter Master Arturius
>>47366919>>47366919Arturius the Immortal, oldest space knight ?
Upon seeing >>47366913, perhaps this chapter has plenty of Mk3 and Cataphract suits, rather than more modern marks? You could make an explanation about how their homeworld was an arms depot during the Great Crusade that was abandoned and forgotten when the Heresy broke out, or that they came across a Space Hulk dating from that era.
>>47366940Forgot picture like a scrub.
>>47366940Actually its Mk2 Armour that i used
>>47366940>>47366953Mostly because Mk3 looks badass and more knightly than Aquila.
>>47366940http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Consecratorsat that point they are the same scheme and fluff as these guys, we already semi established that they have a deal with the mechanicum to get nice power armor (didnt find it)
>>47366940Yes,and the world was so beautifull back then, large gleaming cathedrals, beautifull castles, great monuments, proud Blood Angels,after the Assault on Terra, Arturius saw the corpse of his gene-father and vowed to honor the sacrafice, taking like minded battle brothers to create space knights, wich protect the world and nearby worlds form any defilers in Sanuinius's memory
>>47366977Are you saying it wasn't a dead world then? If so, what happened to it?Could dial up the grimdark some more.
>>47367013A failed exterminatus by the traitor legions, they didnt have enough cyclone torpedos for the whole planet so they shot all they had and left the planet a bit fucked up but stabilised since
>>47367013The Long war happened,chaos got trough and tortched the world,explains why they are Understreingth, all was allmostlost, underground the haretic assault stopped andArtorius lead a counter attack right at the chaos lord, crushing in his helmet with his bare hands,with their leader dead, the chaos forces got sistematicly cut off and destoryed by the locals and remaining space knights
>>47366705>>47366649>>47366701There are the remains of cities of unusual design seemingly built for something taller than the average man that litter the surface. The higher tech things have long since degraded to dust and frozen sludge as has presumably any mortal remains. Only empty shells of old structures and more primitive constructions left behind the purpose of which may now never be known.They are made, the majority of the lasting relics, of some sort of matt grey metal that seems to be a locally produced adamantium derivative.The chapter has salvaged one of these empty shells and made it habitable again and called it home. It is a bleak and dead place surrounded by cold and night and only lit by the feeble light of a dying sun.
>>47367058The eldar wanted something from this world,as the roll-god saidthe hero of 2nd company 8th squad was the onewho was in the boarding action of the eldar craftworld that was anchored near the dead world, in wich he experienced the Red Thirst/Black rage and went on a killing spree to keep away the xenos from his homeworld and it's secretsso, what is the thing that theese eldar where looking for?
>>47367058>>47367013>>47366526 the xeno tried to reclaim the planet, emerging from an underground slumber to battle the chapter and devour the planets inhabitants, annihilating most of the Space Knights. As a matter of honor the chapter stills keeps this secret (and does scouting missions to exterminate the xeno remnants deep within the planet.)
>>47367107We could pull a Retribution so that there's an ancient Craftworld buried beneath the surface. Or we could think of something more original.>>47367042>>47367049I like this
>>47367119necrons from below, eldar from above, orks from the future and chaos from the pastThe chapter isnt understreingth, they are just really spread thin>>47367120or a stash of soulstones
>>47367107Hero of the Red Knights
>>47367168Nothing says "hero of the imperium" more than tackling a Farseer, stepping on her chestplate and ripping the head clean off while screaming a litany of fury so intense it shakes the very core of the eldar's mind(since they are more sensitive than humans emotionally)
>>47367168What Would the Sternguard be Called?
>>47367290Wouldn't that be Vanguard?
>>47367304Okay, soVanguard = ClaymoresandSternguard = Halberds?
>>47367348I was thinking Stenguard could be Ballistae, Catapults or Longbows. But if we want to stick to melee weapons Halberds work
>>47367402>scouts Daggers/Dirks>tactical squads Broadsword>heavy weapons squads Longsword>terminatorsLancersJust throwing ideas out
>>47367455the imperial knights should be called something like barons, also here's the claymores
>>47367455Scouts could be Boltstactical could be Gladii, singular GladiusLongsword and Lancer is cool>>47367563sick
>>47367622>gladiusI thought about that too, but chose Broadsword because it got the use of tactical squads across (broad) and fit the general period of the rest of the weapons, the Gladius was a late republic-mid Roman Empire weapon iirc, it was actually replaced by a more longsword-Esque weapon by the time of the fall.But desu, I can see an Iron Snakes Esque chapter forming here
>>47367675Maybe we should just leave the naming alone before we complicate this to oblivion?
>>47367701so the imperial knights, why does the chapter have them, how are they used and are they piloted by marines?
>>47367722Imperial knights are used against threats larger than a angry knightmarine cant tackle,they can be piloted by marines, but usually they are the chapter's replacement for a dreadnought, since they value martyrdom more than eternal servitude, they are limited or are piloted by non-marines
>>47367722They could have been modified by our Mechanicus allies to be like Dreadnoughts. When a powerful knight-brother falls in battle but hangs onto life, he can be chosen to walk the path of the Martyr Primarch and ascend to become a Duke (If that's what we call them)
>>47367792Damn, anon jinxed me.
>>47367802The choice>1. You die, you follow the path of Sanguinius and fuill your duty for the emperoror>2. You live, your broken body replaced with steel, to fight the foul inhumans beyond your duty, you choose to suffer more, but become a hero for your bretheren and an example to the xenos why they should fear humanity
Since we're of Blood Angel heritage, do we have a Death Company/equivalent? What about the Red Thirst? How does the Chapter deal with these.
>>47368361They don't, they are all on more-or-less intensive level of Red thirst, even the chapter master Arturius the immortal
>>47367119The planet was once inhabited by the Old Ones.The dead cities of the surface are of a much later construction. The dead cities are elder but dated to about 20 - 25 million years at time of last habitation. This puts them at a much, much earlier iteration of their Empire Cycles.It is unknown for sure if the ancient elder knew about the Old One's former claim to the place although presumably they did.The modern elder, who have caused trouble for the chapter, do know about the first inhabitants of the planet and are convinced that there is some ancient space folding tech buried under there that they could use.They have not communicated this fact to the Knights because they are monumentally arrogant and thought a message of "We are concerning ourselves with your world. Do not interfere or you will be punished" was sufficient. Then they got all pissy when they were driven off.The dead cities do not look like elder ruins because they are from another long forgotten era.The Orks only turned up because they got lost and thought "Wilst were 'ere lets krump sum gitz".The Necrons don't actually know much about the world. The ones that do visit are on auto-pilot and are still basically sleepwalking.
>>47368462Maybe their a standing force to contain the eldar craftworld?
>>47368462>>47368505We mustn't forget that its still a medieval world, so its not soley Knights living on there, but a local human populace too
>>47368603Most of the world is dead. It's only the canyons and pits where humans can survive.A relatively low population of primitives isn't going to concern anyone, especially not the elder with their superior weapons.
>>47368784The knights needs fresh marines from somewhere, the medieval pits sound goodgrind to survive, grind to "ascend", wellcome to thespace knights
>>47368843>Welcome to the space knightsFound their theme song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9FImc2LOr8
>>47369536Dunkin' on them xenos since 37th millenium
>>47367107>>47368462>>47368505>>47368603I'm not sure I like dragging the Old Ones and super-ancient eldar into the world's history. I prefer the anon's take where the Chaos Legions bombarded the world into oblivion, and where it was previously an Imperial world with Imperial architecture.The Eldar could certainly have a presence to justify their interest in the world, however. Perhaps there was a pre-fall city below the planet's surface that the modern Eldar want to access, but the Space Knights go "Lol fuck you xenos" because they see the Eldar presence as an attack, unaware of the city.I also liked >>47366315 's idea with the ancient hab stations that the Space Knights barge into every now and then for recruits and the populace goes "We'll they're big, scary and protect the planet, so..."
>>47369681I stand behind this, lets keep it simple and straight
>>47369645>Chapter Master Arturius ripped off the Farseer's head and found it was excellent at bouncing, at the same moment inventing the new sport basketballus.
>>47369681>>47366749Also, since the world was fertile in the past, it would be a nice piece of irony that the now desolate world is named Garden of Sanguinus, when it's basically just a radioactive rock.
>>47369756>Ever since the knights arrange several maches on a galactic levels wich include beheading xenos and using their skulls as a means to score points by thowing them trough metal hoops, the sport "basketballus" is second favorite only Blood Bowl being more popular
The original inhabitants of the Garden of Sanguinius suffered 99.9% casualty rate when the botched exterminatus fucked up the Garden.The survivors, deep in their isolated canyons, would have could not on their own sustain genetic diversity and would have eventually died out through inbreeding within the next 10 - 15 generations.They were spared this by the introduction of a prison barge destined for the penal legion crashing into the Garden just before the really interesting deformities started to kick in.With re-purposed military equipment tunnels were dug between most of the major canyons, negating the need to traverse the uninhabitable surface. This eased the bottolnecking somewhat.Side effect of the still persistent but mild levels of inbreeding have had an odd effect of concentrating inthe population the genetic markers that indicate gene-seed compatibility. Or at least compatibility with the bloodline of the Martyred Angel.Because of this the relatively low population can support a full chapter although the Apothecarian has to graze gently rather than dig deep into the population as space marine initiates tend not to have children.Downside is that due to the mildly mutated nature of the population the gene-seed is slightly unstable and a piece of it stopped working. Such is the nature of trade offs.
Wait one moment.Dying worldDwindling populationFeud with an ancient raceVampire rulersFeudalismMagic and dark gods and shitWe sure this isn't Legacy of Kain? This sounds like Legacy of Kain.All we need to do is add tall magic rocks and change the name to Nosgoth.
OP here, i hope the knights will survive untill tommorow, goodnight
>>47373445I just saved the entire thread as a .png, because I really like the concept we've made thus far. Also saved some of the more important flavour pictures, to make some kind of moodboard.
>>47373503Saved up until >>47371610, btw
Does this planet have just one governor, or is it divided into several kingdoms that control various areas on the planet?
>>47374500Original roll said one govenor I think, but we aren't locked by those rolls. They are just an outline to give us something to work with.
Who's up for rolling up the Orks that we have as our current enemy?
>>47373503Post it when you're done mate.
>>47375768Right, forgot that I probably should.It's too big to upload to 4chan, so here's the link to it on Imgur.http://i.imgur.com/KpxZRgS.png
>>47375884>page not foundWhat the fuck anon
>>47375884>>47376855Sorry about that. I realized I forgot to make the spoiler tags in the thread visible, so deleted the old one and updated it: http://i.imgur.com/liURgHe.png
>>47375264We always could, but I'd prefer to come up with one on our own. Something either to compliment them or contrast them
>>47375264>>47377082Yeah, if we're going to flesh out the Orks we're probably better off making them ourselves.
>>47377235Do we have a decent summary of what we have so far
>>47377433Give me a few minutes and I'll write one
>>47377433>>47377470>Space Knights>Founded in M37 as a Blood Angels successor>Allies with the Mechanicum, field modified Imperial Knights as Dreadnoughts>Homeworld is Garden of Sanguinius, a medieval dead world. Became dead because Chaos forces performed a botched Exterminatus>Chapter is basically DEUS VULT IN SPACE with less chivalry and more Dark Souls>Power flails and Mk3 armour>Primary enemies are Orks and Eldar, who want to get to an ancient Eldar city below the Garden's surface. Space Knights say fuck you.I probably missed a bunch of stuff, but the thread is "archived" at >>47375884
>>47377640Some more about their homeworld>Planet has a small population of humans that live in ancient hab stations in the planets canyons primarily.>The population has more-than-the-norm of people compatible with the Martyr-Primarch (Sanguinius) geneseed, so the apothecaries carefully manage the population so they don't run out of recruits.>The population don't really know much about the Knights, other than that they show up to take their children every now and then, but they also protect them.And some more about the chapter>They're big on being martyrs, both for their Chapter, their Primarch, and the Imperium>Hence their colour scheme, dark grey in mourning, detailed in the blood of their father
So I modified the picture in >>47366726 because it really captured the feel I wanted for the Chapter. Opinions?It's not 100% done but I got rid of most of the Chaosy-stuff. My botch work is visible all over it, but it's something that a drawfag could work with, perhaps.I'm also gonna start making some concepts for heraldry tomorrow.
Going to bed now, so will see if this thread is still around in a few hours.
>>47377858Good stuff, anon.
>>47366940Their AdMech bros could justify some pretty awesome medieval Centurion conversions, like CHAIN FLAILS instead of the siege drills.
just messing around with some color schemes and helmet designs. some grey knight and black templar influences in here. would be kind of an interesting quirk of the chapter that it has an unusually large armory of powerswords
>>47377735I'm picturing the homeworld looking like a mix between kiln of the first flame and the place in the DoW3 trailer
>>47379488That's fucking badass
>>47379488Looks really goodAre we set with the emblem
>>47380845the emblem is something i just made pretty quick, others should post their ideas
Orks should be next to feral, a real primative lot that maybe took up residency on one of the moons(?)Act like the ones in the Dawn of War 3 trailer, not loud cockneys, but quiet, animalistic brutes
pretty similar to grey knight terminators but fuck it.
>>47377858>>47379488>>47382449Op here, that looks fucking awesome,im really happy this didnt die

>>47382808ill give a go at drawing chapter master arturius
>>47383154Thanks lemon, i appreaciate your work
I really like the idea of all of the Space Knights having ailettes. The Iron Knights have the same thing and it's why I think they look so nice.
>>47383365They could have the crest of whatever pocket kingdom they originate.Chapter symbol is worn across the breast plate

1d4chan page when?
>>47383557fuck yes, make it happen
>>47377858-anon here.Before we make a 1d4chan page, are we decided on the name Space Knights? It's an alright name, but I think we could come up with a better one if we want to. Here's some ideas I came up with before falling asleep>Order of the Broken Angel>Sons of the Martyred Angel>Martyrs of the Angel>Knights of Sanguinius>Star Knights>tfw Astral Knights is already a chapter>Spatium Angelius>Order of the Martyred Angel (Probably too similar to Sororitas Order of Our Martyred Lady)Now to make some heraldry.
>>47383858Well, for short Space Knights would work,but for official name i vote on>Order of the Blood Martyr
>>47377858>>47379488>>47383858So here's the first design I came up with. I kind of threw it together because I have to leave for a while, but it's the general concept. I've got at least one more I want to try out, too. Opinions?
Chapter Master Arturius in power armor with exaclibur :^)ill draw him in terminator armor later>>47383858i like knights of sanguinius or knights cruentus. anything with Order... infront of it makes it sound like some sororitas order.
>>47384100Try rotating the sword 180 degrees, make the dropa little smaller and flip it, so its blood drop on both sidesI tihnk that would look good>>47384135Man, that's badass
Ok so we got the armour under way, but what about vehicles? Do they have any special variants? I mean they are seige focused
>>47384164Land Raider Sanguinius,a land raider with an earthsaker cannon,Stug-style, minus the transport ability
>>47384164Rapier Armoured CarrierCerberus Heavy Tank Destroyer?but i dont think they would be heavy on aircraft
>>47384196Wouldn't the actually existing Land Raider Ares make more sense?
>Medieval knights chapter>No Terminators on Gravbikes with Power Lances and Storm Shields I'm disappointed in you, /tg/. We should add some line breaking heavy cavalry.
>>47384309True>>47384328Grav bikes with ploughs and storm bolters
>>47384343Storm Bolters in the Lances, classic GK style?
>>47384397they got the Close And Personal flaw, soi think we need to keep them focused on glorious honorable melee combat
>>47384444I am in favor of this >>47366873 >>47366894
>>47384461We need a picture of a Space Knight on a bike, hitting an ork in the face with a power flail as he drives by. I need it!
some pretty basic siege whirlwind variants. MLRS style variant - massive area denial barragemobile self propelled howitzer variant - basically a whirlwind hunter turned into a howitzer
>>47384469That howitzer is cool, what would we name it?

I was just thinking. Does the Imperium raise Guard regiments from our planet?
>>47384487I think you posted in the wrong place kiddo
>>47384513or just Balista, but that works too>>47384498The world got a Pdf force, but with the Kngihts recruitment and the pdf mandatory service there is little the rest of the imperium can take
>>47384498Yes, there are the Terran Praefects and Lucifer Blacks.During the great crusade there were also the Geno Five-Two Chiliad and the Byzant Janizars.
>>47384555Nice trips, but bruvits a dead world, and the little population remaining is being the only recruiting source for the Space Knights
In what segmentum does this planet reside in?
>>47384589Shit I thought I was on the 40k general and by "our planet" he was referring to Earth.
>>473846041-2 Obscurus3-4 Pacificus5-6 Tempestus7-8 Ultima9-10 SolarRoll D10 and let the roll gods decide
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>47384630Rollan!!
>>47384633Solar rolledLooks like the orks the Knights are facing against are either from WAAAGH WAZDAKKA or the arch-maniac of Valverina
>>47384328>>47384461i think terminator armor on jetbikes might be a little too heavy but have some power armor instead
>>47384855should i keep drawing this model of jetbike or go for the horus heresy scimitar model that the blood angels use. personally i think this one looks way cooler than the blood angels one but if we want to be fluff friendly...
Marines getting something like the stigmata is how they choose who becomes a chaplain.Is this a good idea?
>>47384630>>47384658I think it would be cool if we're in the far north-west of Ultima Segmentum, towards the Ghoul Stars. I always liked how that area is basically unexplored and full of weird shit, and that the Astronomicon is weak there.I mean, we're a knightly Chapter obsessed with martyrdom living on a dead world orbiting a dying star. Might as well turn the grimdark dial up some more.
>>47383858>>47383915>>47384135So what does people think? Knights of Sanguinius got at least one vote, and that sounds better than Space Knights (Which could remain the project title, so to speak)
>>47386130If it's that that you want then go full and far west of Segmentum Pacificus. Out past Ultima Macharia where the light of the Astronomican doesn't reach and the God-Emperor can't see.
>>47386194That would also be cool. Considering that whole segmentum is full of uprisings and rebellions, it seems like a nice fit for out chapter. Bringing the Emperor's and Sanguinius' light to the darkness and standing as a bulwark against treason.
>>47384469I like the howitzer. That could be our long-range heavy support piece. As others have suggested, Balista seems like a cool name for it.
>>47384498this is exactly what the pdf looks like
>>47386385Yes, anon. Yes it is. Great find!
>>47386367Instead of ballista, how about arbalest
>>47386176earlier we were calling them the red knights and here is the scheme i made yesterday, also why are we making a whole new style of power armour, i think they look quite good in mkIII
>>47386435I think we're still running the same colour scheme, dark grey and blood-red. And I agree Mk3 suits look badass on them.
>>47386176>>47383858Personally, I've got no issue with space Knights, but something like Star Knights would be okay by me. Maybe Knights of the Broken Star, Brotherhood of the Stars, Order Stellae, the Star Guard, Star Sentinals, Star Sentries, Fraternity of the Red Star, Bannerets of the Sanguine, The Red Partisans, Sanguine/Star Companions, the Crimson Brotherhood, The Star Wards/Wards of SanguineSomething like those
>>47386176unless something way better than knights of sanguinius comes up i think we should stick with that
>>47386677Their dying sun is a reddish orange so I suggest Knights of the Red Sun.
>>47386703red sun or son? or should they be used interchangeably?
>>47386703>>47386747>Knights of the Red Sun's Red SonMemes aside, isn't the Red Son a title for Magnus?
>>47386600>Star Companions,I like this one a lot
>>47386765the only title i know that is close to that is magnus the red but maybe?
I made some more ideas for heraldry, including my own take on the double-sword one the friendly neighborhood drawfag(s) have been using. Opinions?
>>47387009i really like the crossed swords design
>>473870091 and 2
>>47382449Maybe consider giving all bolt weapons horizontal wings to make them look more crossbow looking?
>>47386176I still think Space Knights works. I kind of like that them having a corny name.
>>47387841Me too, Space Knights is a pretty good name
>>47384894keep it man, its cooler than cool
>>47387841>>47387878Fair enough, then.
>>473870091,2 and 4 look the coolest>>47387841>>47387878Space Knights, straight-forward and simple
Since we've decided that the name will remain Space Knights, I'll create a 1d4chan page for the Chapter!
>>47388040Youre doing god-emperor's work, son
>>47388040>>47388142It is done, brother-anons!https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Space_KnightsIt'd be nice if we could decide what their heraldry should be, so we can put that on the page. Out of the suggestions in >>47387009, 1 and 2 both have two votes each, and 4 has one vote (Kind of)Also, does anyone else have suggestions for heraldry, in case the ones that have already been suggested aren't up to par?
>>47388176the heraldry should be the crossed swords because we already have 3 pieces of art with the crossed swords
>>47388176Yes, the art allready has crossed swords heraldryAnd we need to get a battle cry
>>47388476Our lives for our brothers?
>>47388708What about>BROTHERS IN LIFE, MARTYRS IN DEATH!
>>47388729>Brothers in life, martyrs in deathThis one is great
any idea how to paint this scheme? I have grey knights that are very similar and want to standardize it.
Made the heraldry with colour and monochrome versions.
>>47389106I'm not happy with the coloured one (Except the large blood drop), but I thought I'd share it anyway.
>>47389102Use the art for reference, but i think its all different from brother to brother,but its mainly black with red details and trims
>>47389106Shouldn't have tinted the smaller drops. That's not how a liquid would drip off a sword in such position. Make it straight if you absolutely need to have the smallerdrops, it'l look better.Otherwise nice, like the middle one.
>>47388745>>47388729Sounds too prideful, like they're doing it for glory rather than its because their dutyKinda lame, but how about "sacrifice unending"? Or something better
>>47389102You mean with actual paints?A dark grey, such as Skavenblight Dinge/Charchadon Granite or perhaps even a little bit darker than that, and then a mid-tone, saturated red for the details. Any leaf-green for the eye lenses.
>>47389203I've still got the project file, so I could potentially change it.
>>47389207I think it fits, since brotherhood got rolled as one of their modus operati,Brothers in life, since they are astertes from the same wordand martyrs in death, since they follow the path of sanguinus, that died to save terra and the emperorIts dutyfull and grimdark as fuc
>>47389226the colour that i used in the program was abbadon black and the red was mournfang brown, the eyes were caliban green, if this helps
>>47386435The art armor looks like a lot like mk3 with a cooler helmet though. Rule of cool I guess.
>>47386385How would the pdf be organized?Also given the butchered nature of the Chapter have they broken faith with the codex and started bolstering the ranks with integrated pdf regiments?
>>47391549That'd be kind of cool. A very pragmatic approach.
>>47391549>>47391646Why not have it on paper (in case the Administratium or the Inquisition takes a peek) "combat serfs"
>>47391693Depending on where the Chapter is located, that might not be necessary. If we're either in far east Ultima Segmentum or in far west Segmentum Pacificus odds are the Imperial beucracy or the Inqusition wouldn't bother checking in on the Chapter, especially since they can keep tabs on our geneseed tithe through our Mechanicum allies.
>>47391693They are usually either manning the big guns or acting as marksmen.A trick the marines like doing when fighting orks is to stand out in the open and goad the greenies into charging. The battle serfs then whittle them down with laser fire whilst the marines keep the rest occupied with glorious close combat.
Can I just give a rundown of a joke chapter my friends and I came up with?>Found parrelel to Blood Ravens>Instead of stealing, these guys bake bread>I mean they fucking bake bread like Salamanders make weapons>The have Mournfang Brown pauldrons, boots, and helmet>everything else is a nice white color>They always smell good>They made bombs out of pies as well>Drop pods are Techno-Heresy that are shaped like giant loaves of French Bread>They make Tech-Priests happy by making them Silicon Bread>Don't get in trouble for tech-heresy>They live on the planet Wonder for extra "lol bread"We were extremely bored, my friend painted a spare marine up like one them and it's pretty great. Don't have the picture though.
cleaned up my chapter symbol suggestion.not entirely sure what to write on the scroll
>>47396290Get a pic of the model. I love obsessive devotion to mundane shit.
>>47366498>Revere the Primarch - "Our Spiritual Liege is better than yours!"Well he is
>>47397974Put some mordor ruined on it. Call it the local language.
>>47396290How many Breadnoughts do they have?
>>47397974The Chapter battle cry could go there, if it fits.
Given the world they call home I'm imagining them being rather bleak and bitter in personality.Their reverence for the Martyred Angel extends to all walks of life in the chapter and all must strive to be in His imitation.To this end the Black Rage is seen as much of a blessing, if a sad one, as much as a curse. As the Rage takes hold they are as close to the Greatest Primarch as an man, mortal or astartes, could ever hope to be.They hold the writings of the Angel in Red above any other teaching. Above the decrees of the flawed Emperor and certainly above the Codex.In this they see no problem in supplementing their failing numbers with mortal soldiers, as it was in the days of the Great Crusade.Their Librarians specialize in precognition and prophesy, as their noble progenitor was gifted with foresight. A strange side effect is that the one prophesy, and the first one they make, is that all the Librarians see their own death. Just as the Martyred Angel did. And as the Martyred Angel they do not shy away from it but accept it and embrace it.Perhaps a downside to this deification of their progenitor is the contempt for the primarchs that weren't on Terra when He fell. They are cowards, incompetents and traitors and a lot of this old grudge rubs off on to the descendants of those lesser primarchs.
>>47401258That actually sounds quite cool.
>>47402167Or we could have them not have an official battle cry beyond a hate filled roar.
>>47404854If the space furries and world eaters can string together words, then they can too
>>47404966Not if they've gone to the Black Rage.For regular marines it's mostly just a very loud string of obscenities and curse words of which the native languages of their world have an abundance of.
>>47405335How many Space Knights have fallen victim to the Black Plague?How common is it to simply give them the Emperor's Peace rather than chain them to a wall and wait for the next battle to come along?
>>47405527I'd suggest that relatively few fall to the rage.Also doesn't the rage typically manifest itself just before battles? Martyr it up bois.And now story tiem> Markus looked up at the sky for the first time in his life.> It was a black void filled with harsh points of light he was told where stars.> His gazed dropped to one of the Knights.> The eyes of the Holy Warrior's helm gleamed like the stars above.> Harsh. Unyielding. Majestic.> Markus prayed to the Great Angel that he would prove equal to the challenges ahead.> He prayed that he would prove worthy of being chosen.> But most of all he prayed that he would prove strong enough to give his life in service.> Brothers In Life> Martyrs In Death
>>47405527The Black Rage is a call from Sanguinius itself,the brother has been chosen, his martyrdom will not be denied
>>47405756martyrs in death might refer to the death companyand that anyone that turns will die in the coming battle, like not a single member of the death company survives apart from the chaplain that leads them.
>>47406321Now that's a good one. I was makinshitup.tm when I wrote that. Very tired.
>>47406321How big is the death company
>>47408227seeing as their under strength it would be smaller than most, and then because everyone dies, i say about a combat squad per battle.
>>47406321If one is unfortunate enough to survive they stick him in a stasis coffin. There is always another battle.They have often refused to fight alongside the likes of the ultramarines, dark angels and space wolves because WHERE THE FUCK WAS THE DOG, THE FERAL CHILD AND THE POLITICIAN WHEN THE ANGEL DIED? SAVING THEIR OWN LITTLE DOMAIN, WAITING TO SEE WHO WAS GOING TO WIN AND CHASING THEIR OWN FEUDS THATS WHAT! Maybe if those shits had turned up on time, like they had sworn to do, the Emperor and more importantly Sanguinius would still be alive.Dorn and his spawn are alright though.
>>47408227But anonthe chapter IS the death company
>>47408421thats why the actual death company is so small
the 1d4chan page could use one or two images from earlier in the thread
Have we gotten to the point where we need to start making important characters in this beat up little chapter of nutters?
>>47410389 >>47384135 >>47367168we've got the chapter master who has his own art and the brother from 2nd company 8th squad that went ham on an eldar farseer that i made the front facing art for.
>>47410480also someone else needs to do the 1d4chan page because i have no idea what im doing with it and i will just fuck it up
>>47410512First and foremost is the infobox, just copy the format from another page, and fill in the correct information
>>47410555Ok i updated the 1d4chan page and filled in some holes in the lore we had so far, can someone who knows how to get the pictures to do what they want go and fix the mess i made, i left the pictures in one big blob down the bottom. https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Space_Knights
>>47413264also tell me if what i wrote is a big pile of shit, either i can change it or someone else can
>>47413264Just throw a =Gallery= above the pictures
What else is there to fluff?
>>47414770The planet, the PDF, specific characters
>>47416412We should find a name for the chapter hero
>>47417701Arturius? Orstios? Goux?
>>47417857Arturius is allready the chapter master
>>47418068Pretty decent pointCould use Havel's or Tarkus' name
>>47418376Orpheius, after the legend
how many ships do they have?
>>47420021Since they are very small I guess they only have a battle barge and a few escort ships.
>>47417701Would something like Achilles be too on-the-nose? I'm admittedly not very well-versed in Greek mythology, but I think the parallels of a hero that slayed powerful monsters and seemed invincible but had an underlying weakness (Achilles heel, Black Rage) are kinda cool.I could be completely wrong though.
>>47422306Well, if we word his name a bit differently it could work
>>47413264>>47414064I've fixed the Gallery formatting. It was a big pile of trash, no offense.
>>47423406Thanks, looks much better nowThis chapter got great fluff potential, if anyone's up to it
Does the planet have any orbital stations?
>>47424664Derelict ones maybe
>>47423406i had never done something like that before so thanks,>>47423406Im gonna write some more tonight, focusing on the ongoing war with the eldar craftworld
Are we going with the full deification of Sanguinius?
>>47427221I'm seeing it as worship above the Emperor.
the eldar that are squatting on the planet need a name
