FALL IN FAGGOTS, WE'RE MAKING A WARBAND!Roll 1d10 to see if we're a legion warband or renegade chapter. DO IT NOW.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>51527767
>>51527794We're a legion warband - WITH FRIENDS!Roll a d10 again for a secondary element such as allied groups or units.
Let's fucking do this!!!!!!
>>51527824Woops - disregard the d10. Roll a d100 for allies.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>51527824Post art too.
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>51527839DAmn it.
>>51527851Looks we've got>specific group of Chaos/renegade mortals (renegade/corrupted Lost and the Damned regiments, anti-Imperium rebels, clan of tribals, corrupted mutants, mercenary bands, pirate gangs....etc)I guess we can work that out when we get to it. Roll 1d100 for our progenitor legion.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>51527890Lets go thousand sons
>>51527901almost friend, almost
>>51527901You were THIS CLOSE, anon. We've got the OG edgelords - the Night Lords!Roll a d10 for our devotion to the Ruinous Powers.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>51527922
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>51527922
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>51527922Is there one of these tables for any WHFB factions?
>>51527931>Neutral. The warband believes Chaos to be more of a tool than something to be worshipped, serving the dark Gods when it benefits them.Pretty standard Night Lords roll, from what we know of them.Roll a d12 to find out which specific god(s) we worship now.
>>51527940There's one for empire knight orders, but that's it as far as I know. The 40k ones got started because there was a Space Marine one in the FFG books.
Rolled 7 (1d12)>>51527949let's hope for "roll again twice"
>>51527949Woops - table says if they're Night Lords, we rock Undivided automatically. Disregard this, I suck cocks.Roll a d100 to see what form our beliefs take.
Rolled 98 (1d100)>>51527987
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>51527987Here's hoping for something interesting
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>51527987
>>51528009>Do what you want, for an Astartes is Free - These Marines are no longer bound by any laws or codes, and will do as they please when they please.WE'RE PIRATES, BOYS! FUCK THE MAN!Roll a d10 for our warband's demeanor.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>51528032
>>51528047>Extra Heresy. A surprisingly large amount of the warband is willing to work alongside aliens, so long as they also worship Chaos (also this isn’t always the case. May also just include mutual hatred for the same enemy.). The battle-brothers in this force are more tolerant than most others.This warband confirmed for absolutely not fucking around with this heresy business. This fits in well with our allies roll at the top too.Roll a d10 for our common mutations. You run with chaos and you're bound to have a few extra limbs.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>51528072
>>51528092>hunger for fleshThis is getting interesting! We're at the very least living up to all the Night Lords rumors.Roll a d100 for our figure of legend.
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>51528112
>>51528119>Chosen or TerminatorI like it. We're gonna have to decide which one we want, though.Roll a d100 for our deeds of legend.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>51528136
>>51528158>The legend committed great atrocities during the boarding of an Eldar Craftworld. He and his Warband are still hated to this day by the Eldar.Looks like we pissed off some Eldar. Probably not gonna be their allies any time soon.Roll a d100 for our homeworld.
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>51528180fleetbasedfleetbasedfleetbased
>>51528196this works too
>>51528196Sorry anon - we're a feral world. Unless you wanna be fleet based, then we can fudge it. We ARE pirates, after all.d100 for terrain, if you wanna stay feral. Dunno about the protocol for terrain on ships.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>51528230They're big ships.
>>51528241>AirlessOooooh, this one should be a lot of fun!Roll d10 for our combat doctrine. Or, we can just skip this roll and take terror tactics automatically since we're Night Lords.
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>51528271
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>51528271
>>51528355>Daemons, Daemons EVERYWHERE - Any fight the warband participates in is followed by legions of chaos daemons, with the intent of turning the planet into a daemon world for the glory of Chaos.Night Lord terrorist pirates with daemonic support? I fucking dig it.Roll a d100 for our special equipment
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>51528378
>>51528385>Special ArmourSo we've our own armor, it seems. This could be fun.Roll a d10 for our warband strength.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>51528418
>>51528429>Slightly UnderstrengthFair enough. Roll a d10 to see why exactly we're a few men down.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>51528456Chaos can be fickle tool and that goes for my dice rolling too
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>51528584Let's try this again, but fail less
>>51528590>The Warband is strong, but it's forces are spread thin, deployed in a Black Crusade, skirmishing, following their own agendas, etc.Fitting our pirate nature, a lot of our forces are out doing whatever the fuck they want. Gotta respect that.We've already rolled for our allies earlier ITT, so let's get to the fun part and see who we love to hate. Roll a d100 to find out who our enemies are.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>51528627
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>51528627Seems like we would be pretty important for a crusade seeing as we have a shit ton of daemons following us at all times
>>51528662Looks like we're a bunch of backstabbing cunts. Roll a d100 since our enemies are actually on the allies table.
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>51528690
>>51528714>Specific group of Chaos/renegade mortals (renegade/corrupted Lost and the Damned regiments, anti-Imperium rebels, clan of tribals, corrupted mutants, mercenary bands, pirate gangs....etc)That's funny - we're fighting the same roll we got for our allies. We're a fun bunch!Let's review where we're at now that the rolling's finished:>We're a legion warband with a close connection to some allies>Said allies are a specific group of fellow renegades>We're descended from the Night Lords>We're neutral on the gods by default>We're also undivided by default>We're a gang of freedom-loving pirates who love to corroborate with xenos filth>We also hunger for flesh and probably eat our fair share of it>We have either a chosen one or a terminator as our figure of legend, who decided to assfuck an entire Eldar craftworld. They're still pissed about this.>We come from a feral world with no air. I don't know how this works but I like it.>We use a lot of daemons in our combat doctrine, but we're also still slight terrorist fucks since we're Night Lords AND pirates.>Our specialty is specialized armor and we're slightly understrength in terms of marines, but we roll with plenty of allies and daemons to recoup our losses>we actually DO have a lot of marines, they're all just out doing whatever they want since they're pirates.>we have a particular hatred for another group of renegades. Hey, it's a cutthroat life.And that's the end of the rolling.
>>51527767We did this already, finish off the chimera legion before making a new band you faggot T. Creator of chimera legion page
>>51528846Too late, slut.
>>51528816I bet we like to hang out with kroot, due to dietary similarities.
>>51528868Most likely. I bet the Tau hate our guts for corrupting their pals.
>>51528816I'm still confused about how we live on a feral world with no air to breathe, but I like what we've got.Anyone have any ideas for names and heraldry? Also, what kind of special armor are we rocking? Daemonic? Xenotech? Archeotech?
>>51528971Daemonic power armor with a pirate motif
>>51529127TIGER HEADED OPIUM NIGHTMARE ASIAN PIRATES
>>51528971Maybe it's got no air on the surface, but there's some form of atmosphere beneath the planets surface?
>>51529151I dig it.>>51529201That makes sense and at the same doesn't, but it's just chaotic enough to work.
>>51528971>>51529201Maybe we have daemons that fucked up our ecosystem so badly that the natural atmosphere deteriorated and eventually disappeared? Now all we have left is caves with artificial atmosphere that we use for slave cultivation?
>>51529319That would work
>>51528846I've been working on some stuff. In due time brother t. Arbites Anon>>51529151Evil Hua Yuan?
Some Ideas I have Already>Lovecraftian Bucanneers>Vampire Counts themed pirates. Vampirates, if you will>Corrupted Gue'Vesa, who have fallen from the Greater Good to Chaos>Soviet Cosmonaut Spetznaz >Batman themed psychopathsAs for allies/enemies do we go with something established or roll our own?
>>51529928Vampirates... that could range from b movie to amazing depending on how it works out
>>51529928>>Vampire Counts themed pirates. Vampirates, if you will
>>51529928>As for allies/enemies do we go with something established or roll our own?If we're gonna go the vampire counts IN SPACE route, we could do a troop of renegade guardsmen who are cursed to be skeletal minions.
>>51530134>Malal has blessed our servants with the ability to return from non-existenceHow do we feel about the Sons of Malice? They're also vampirate marines.
>>51530184Well the Sons of Malice hate everything Chaos, especially the undivided ones, which we happen to be. We operate under similar pretenses but we definitely don't get along.

Why spend your own blood to slake the thirst of a crippled king? Why deny yourself the decadence and glory of conquest under some childish notion of "Good"?>To the Warp with them all. Let the Blood and Coin flow, and may the Darkness guide this Ship.
>>51530452Fucking metal m8.
>>51529866Think Hotline Miami, but with daemons for masks and super-warp cocaine.
>>51530650Well THAT'S going onto the Hua Yuan page
>>51530452I can get behind thatSo then, why do the other chaos worshippers put up with our bullshit?
>>51530793Who says they do? Our enemies are literally another force of renegades. Maybe another warband got tired of our shit and wants us dead.
>>51530870Or maybe they raided our usual targets and now we're on a revenge mission to take them out and get our booty back?
>>51530793>>51530870The never ending tides of undead swag helps keep the haters at bay.The haughty attitudes, penchant for crypticsm, and unrelenting habit for unbiased piracy doesn't help us make friends, however.
Some possible names>Goldfangs>Sanguine Raiders>Black Marauders >Red Kings
>>51531186Red Kings is pretty kickass, but what would the color scheme be? There are a LOT of red CSM warbands and making one stand out would be a bitch.Maybe red with the white lightning on the legs like their parent legion?
>>51531521Black with red lightning?Red with black feathers painted throughout their armour?Black with gold teeth motifs, red wings and white lightning?
>>51532141Feathers would be a bitch but it would look good.
For some reason I am absolutely captivated with the idea that there are demon-kroot auxiliaries in this warband, since kroot are well known for being mercenaries and probably would be willing to work alongside this bandWithout a shaper, they probably would eat of demons on their own and start to mutate to resemble them. I wonder what this would produce
>>51532141I'd say gold teeth motifs, Red armor with black highlights and white lightning on the legs
>>51532747I'm just thinking it would be a neat VK:R reference, as evidenced here >>51530938As for history I'm thinking something like this>Fuedal world gets hit with a Warp Virus, turning them into blood sucking freaks>=][= revs ups to slap them in the face with the full force of it's length and girth>Tau offers them a way out for joining Greaber Goob : DDD>Being Gue’Vesa sucks dick >Ditch the tau dragging along some dog soldiers and no small number of Kroot with them>Get folded into a NL splinter cell, who surprise surprise, catch the nasty warp virus and become vamp freaks as well>The Red Kings now chill with DEldar and eccentric Necron
>>51532939Sounds nice, does this mean we can do a Lost and Damned + Kroot as allies/auxiliaries
>>51533122I think there should be an emphasis on DEldar and Kroot, since they both suit the themes of the Red KingsI'm not quite sure what should be done about the whole Daemon thing, or how to tie that into piracy or vampirism, considering we can't be bothered with the Ruinous Powers
So here's something to consider. These noble anons mentioned the ever fantastic Chimera Legion >>51528846 >>51529866 and it struck me that something interesting to do is to have the Red Kings be mirrored opposites.The Chimera Legion is a COBRA/ISIS terrorist group with an inhouse dogma purpose built to keep the subordinate humans in check, who worship the warband's leader as God.I think it may interesting to swap the relationship of the Marines and the "humans" and have the humans in charge and the marines subordinates. Perhaps even have the marines be slavering beasts and the "humans" cunning manipulators.
>>51533587Maybe not the humans, but the DEldar, since they are being incorporatedIt just seems so unlikely that a human of any kind in a chaos warband, where might=right, would lead around marines, at least to meIn my mind, DEldar are more likely to be able to manipulate the marines within the warband while still seeming to be in a subordinate position due to the general craftyness that Eldar have over humans
>>51533650Unless the virus turned the Astartes into mindless beasts. Either way I think with this particular warband, guille is more potent than brawn.As for DEldar, I mention them simply because I think they fill out the socialite aspect of vampires rather well, and occupy the "court" of the Kings, whereas the Tarrellians and the Kroot would be more like foot soldiers/elite guard
Headed out for the night.Don't let the thread die
Should we roll up our enemy? The lost and the damned regiment?

I imagine Furies flock to our dudes here.http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Fury
Why can't we just have Canon/Fanon allies and enemies?
>>51544257cause that's no fun
>>51534718What if the virus infects races pretty indiscriminately? So the DE aligned with the faction are infected too. The reason the warband has chaos as its preferred enemy is because they're constantly fighting off slaaneshi daemons trying to consume the infected DE? not to mention, this could be why daemons follow them wherever they go. They're like stormcrows using imperial worlds as tasty delaying factors for everything that follows them.
>>51544870I support this idea
>>51530650>super-warp cocaineI bet Doom Rider rolls with us sometimes.
>>51533477They make for good boarding parties.
These guys fall to khorn and slaneesh easy,nurgle is possible.because of scurvy,but how do they fall to tzeentch?
>>51539732I like the idea of Khorne deamons just showing up and following us around because where we go there will be blood and lots of it. Nurgle deamons probably like us too for speading our plague through our tainted blood.
>>51547857Sometimes our swashbuckling aligns with his schemes, also blood magic and we don't give two damns or a shit about further mutation.
>>51544870This seems detrimental to having DEldar mingle with us. >>51547857Are you serious? Schemeing vampires? Focused on profit?
>>51547857They don't fall to anyone.Fuck the gods, the only thing worth worshiping is profit.
>>51528816>We come from a feral world with no air. I don't know how this works but I like it.>>51528971>I'm still confused about how we live on a feral world with no air to breathe>>51529319>Now all we have left is caves with artificial atmosphere that we use for slave cultivation?The caves would be sealed environments whose populations would regularly outgrow the limited food supply the confined ecologies could generate. The end result would be perpetual warfare among cannibalistic tribes. Hence:>We also hunger for flesh and probably eat our fair share of it
>>51533477>I'm not quite sure what should be done about the whole Daemon thing, or how to tie that into piracy or vampirism, considering we can't be bothered with the Ruinous PowersNot worshiping the "Gods" of Chaos isn't the same as not using the powers of the warp. Summoning hordes of gargoyle-esque furies seems like it's right up the "chaos vampire" theme.
>>51550567That would definitely be good origin for our planet, and why the =][= was eager to dickstomp us/chaos gave us VampAIDS, but I think at this point the Red Kings should be fleet based, no?Or perhaps have a few dedicated ships?I just feel that a world would be dangerous to have considering the vast amount of enemies they have
>>51551263The "home world" could be a series of asteroid colonies, or it's location could be a secret. Making it a recruiting ground they return to regularly, rather than a base of operations. Obviously, if they are pirates, most of their activity is going to be fleet based.
So a thought as to why the human Vamps are in controlMaybe the virus reacts with Astartes organs bizarrely and slowly turns them into Varghulf/Vargheist like creatures. Like our terminator hero of legend is this Daemon Primce sized bat monstrosity.
>>51551904Or it could be that the Marine's biology doesn't react to the virus much at all. Astartes bio-engineering was designed to be more resistant to warp influences than normal humans. The former humans are the real vampires, and the Astartes are just the muscle. The Vamps are the sophisticated plotting aristocratic types, while the Astartes are savages. We rolled up cannibals from a Feral World after all.The daemonic pact rules in Dark Heresy (not to mention the "gifts" in Black Crusade) actually make it easy to build a cult of vampires. I'm talking full-blown blood-thirsty immortals with spooky psychic powers. Make those guys the counts of the courts. The Night Lord / Red Kings are their Knight analogs; enforcing their will but chafing under their rule. Then fill out the ranks with a variety of Human and Xenos mercenaries like the mutated Kroot, Dark Eldar, and (potentially) other races. The large numbers of daemons rolled up are vast swarms of Furies conjured up to serve as the first wave of most assaults, plus the "Vampires" who have also gained the "Daemonic" trait due to their age and power (think Daemon princes as Vampire Counts).
>>51558177So maybe our Varghulfs and Vargheists are actually our Kroot?Or Terminator of legend could be some sort of beast master that has managed to contain the beasts. He's famed for setting them upon the eldar, and his Varkroot/Krootgoi feasted upon their soul stones giving them immense power. His cadre can have DEldar beastmasters as well, giving him little favor with the Eldar
>>51558177I want some burly ass nosferatu looking motherfuckers.
>>51559320There's bound to be some Astartes that willing give themselves to the curse with the help of some DEldar flesh warpers
>>51559320>>51559640And nothing to say that the humans can't get jacked on blood and enhancements
So who's our leader?
Where did everyone go?
>>51560608Perhaps it's the Terminator? Or perhaps the Chosen?
>>51566638No, the Terminator is too blunt. For a Vampiric Pirate admiral we need something a little more suave
>>51566638>>51568266What if we do both? Have the Admiral be a Terminator or Chosen who's constantly suave and debonair, fancy ass armor, drinking wine in goblets, attaches a goddamn cloak to his armor, the works. However, this is basically one giant facade for the fact that he's the most bloodthirsty motherfucker in the fleet. Maybe the vampirism mixing with the mutations of chaos and the astartes genome has made him look human or at least not particularly inhuman at first glance, but the second he rages it cracks apart and you get a giant hulking death-nosferatu in power armor tearing open dreadnoughts with his bare hands.
>>51568504Also how's this for a possible battle cry?>"Drink Deep!"
>>51568558Alternatively.>"DRINK UP ME HEARTIES, YO HO!" I feel this is either perfect or terrible and I can't decide which
>>51568504I think the leader should be of former human stock, not Astartes. I agree with you on the mostly normal looking part, then turning into a hideous monstrosity once he's inraged.I think he should be a Chosen, and the Terminator be another guy. This guy, lets call him Lord Admiral for now as a rank, despite his disdain for the Gods, and his loathing for the curse has in a twist of fate become a Chosen by Chaos, whether he's Undivided or Malal is unclear. This gives him the stature and power necessary for Astartes and Xenos to not think twice about challenging him.As for his personality, I think he should be more of the brooding kind of vampire, very dour and calculating with this intense fury always bubbling under the surface. This sets him apart from decadent fag vampires, bodacious swashbucklers, and the openly savage strigoi. He's all business, and everyone hates and loves him for it.>>51568558Very, very, very good.>>51569028That's a fun pardoy that the lowest ranks and mercs can use.I think the warband gets increasingly more piratical as one descends the ranks. It's like a sliding scale for Vampire <->Pirate, with the Lord Admiral being more of a vaguely nautical Vampire Count, the lowest ranking vamp just a pale bilge rat, and the middle management is the perfect harmony of Pirate and Vampire, and thus acts as the perfect bridge for the upper and lower ranks
>>51569028Somethin' and something, really bad eggs.
>>51539514We use what amount to drop pods with daemonic summoning rituals inside. Make a giant drop pod using brass and cover it with runes, pour a shitload of blood, guts and a few living slaves into it, seal it shut, wave our hands over it and chant something and then launch it at the enemies before it explodes into bloodletters.
>>51532141>>51532915Here's my try
>>51539558Shit our enemy regiment is cooler than our CSMs
>>51575730>Exotic Mounts>Jungle feral worldRiding Flying Foxes the size of vans. While relatively docile in their natural habitat, the powers of chaos and blood whip them into a brutal and terrifying frenzy
>>51574516Looks pretty good to me, thanks man
>>51570105Chosen of the Gods, Lord Admiral of his own fleetsHe brokers no arguments, no exceptionsHis fleet might as well be his own personal daemon world, for his world there can shift every man, every ship, every gun wherever he but whispers it toHis countenance is one of granite or steel, and is a firm as his ordersAmong the Imperium, he would be a well-respected admiral or a general of great renownBut this man is no fool, and only a fool fights for the Imperium these daysAnd how many fools there are, ripe for plunderThough the man-made-Chosen fights only for himself, the gods have seen fit to curse him with blood-thirst and other unwanted giftsThough the "gifts" make his lips curl in disgust at the thought of them, they have been useful in destroying his enemies and enforcing his will over the stronger and more willful of crewmates
>>51576993ah shit*his wordnot world
>>51576993Though seemingly a man of intense discipline, he quite enjoys the splendor his piratical ways bring himHis ship is a sleek one, powerful and lithe, but is a much a personal palace as it is a battleshipIt contains many trophies from his many conquests and sackings, many rare and valuable tomes stolen from across the galaxy, food, wine, gold and many other luxuries the Lord Admiral favored for himselfAmong his personal library and study there is an entire wall devoted to bottled vintages of blood taken from enemies he found great respect for. There are many bottles upon the wall, for the Lord Admiral has beaten many impressive foes. He has taken to sipping at whichever vintage he is in the throes of nostalgia for at the moment, and often leaves the bridge in the middle of fleet combat to drink and remember a particularly memorable battle
>>51570105What's our Lord Admiral's preferred method of personal combat?
>>51573959That sounds pretty good. Fire it at the enemy out of our canons?>>51574516Looks pretty good.>>51575730Wrong >>51577105I don't think that the Lord Admiral would abandon his post just to get a sippie sip to assuage Vampiric ennui. Perhaps afterwards, in his quiet hours, but during the battle he would resolute in his duties. A proper naval admiral through and through, if not terse and brooding.>>51577704I would say he would be a fantastic duelist. There's a reason that no one, Vamp nor Xenos nor Astartes, challenges his claim to power. Beyond skill with the blade, he's a crack shot with the pistol.Other than his martial prowess he should possess some eery psykic powers. Of what brand I'm not sure.
>>51578164>>51577105>>51576993And a harem He definitely has a Harem in his personal chanber
>>51578164What I was going for was that he occasionally is overcome with bouts of Nostalgia and can't help but relive those moments when the feeling strikes him, almost like hallucinations or visions of past battles
>>51578164Alongside his more than ample martial abilities and horrid "gifts", the Lord Admiral is infamous for his captivating gaze, a stare with the intensity the likes of which few men have had to endureIt is said that this gaze is the Lord Admiral's test to his enemies, those that fall before it are not worthy of his personal attention and are given over to his retinue to be disposed ofThose with the will to withstand his gaze and meet it are worthy adversaries, and will engage the Lord Admiral in personal one-on-one combatThose among the Lord Admiral's crew know the folly in disrupting their leader's duel, and will guard the preceding as they would any high-value objective from meddling enemiesNone so far have been able to best the Lord Admiral in one-on-one combat, though few have come closeAll combatants, regardless of their performance in the duel, are made a vintage to be sipped at and pondered at a later dateThe count believes that in sampling the blood of these enemies, their worth can be evaluated. Whether this is true or not, only those that taste of the blood could know, and none such creatures would ever be permitted to take of the Lord Admiral's personal stock
>>51578602That he has visions of other places and times, sometimes outside of his understanding, I totally agree with. Him having a slightly sentimental side totally fits.But I don't think I agree with him and leaving post in the middle of the battle.>>51578742This is great some other powers I think he should have>Exploding into a swarm of bats/Furries. He can't really attack, and attacking him is difficult, but he can travel faster through difficult terrain.>Hemomancy>A battle rage that turns him into a hideous monster, diminishing his skill in battle but increasing his vitality and power>Command over simple beasts>Those who fail to meet his gaze can be compelled to fight for him, for a time
The enemy LotD army seems like chaos catachans to me.
>>51530292as soon as I read the description of this warband after it was all rolled I thought this was literally the sons of malicethe only difference is you rolled chaos undivided instead of "old noncanon anti-chaos" but even then, sons of malice actually do travel with daemons. it is stated that the sons of malice are seen fighting alongside the daemons of the big four, but often those daemons are in bondage somehow, for example blindfolded, one arm chained, etc.
>>51582505I honestly think Vampirates are more interesting than Sons of Malice /tg/ edition.
