I guess unless someone else can suggest a better method. I guess if enough people don't like a result we can reroll it or something.

So far the chapter is a successor to the Blood Angel founded in the 33rd Millerium with flawed gene stock, leading to them displaying excessive pride in their colors and livery though there is no other mutation to speak of. Their geneseed also has developed an affinity for strength and cunning.

An underwater fortress for our Chapter could give us an extreme tactical edge beyond what a temperate world could do. Although the idea of a hive being based on an ocean world is interesting as well (call it atlantis or fuck you.)

An underwater fortress would be hard to detect and would likely be passed over by most foes meaning that we wont have to worry as much about invasion. Any tyranid fleets coming in would likely be small (because they wouldn't expect large resistance from an ocean world) and could easily be repelled.

quick recap:

The chapter was founded in the 33rd Millenium as a successor chapter to the Blood Angels though their genestock's purity was lacking. While it did enhance their cunning and strength they have become extremely proud of their colors. They aren't particularly keen on following the codex completely and prefer close range combat.

The chapter maintains stewardship over their homeworld, a huge world made of an almost unbroken ocean dotted with numerous hives. In the sky above the chapter's fortress monastery resides on a temperatue deathworld of a moon.

They were created because the emporer foresaw the threat of unique and specialized sea-based tyranids in the coming millenium. I'm hoping that fluffwise they are considered specialists in dealing with tyranid threats on these worlds by the ultramarines.

About the Worlds

So on a Ocean Hive World, the fauna must be pretty high and possibily really dangerous considerating that the Human Ocean has the biggest number of organisms in the earth, so it's possible that a big part of the planet must be unexplored.

So i do Believe that the Abyssal Angels Librarians would have to work like Cartographers, making maps of the whole Sea

the Angel part needs to go. Abyssal is good though.

Abyssal Devourers, Abyssal Fury, or Abyssal Jaws would be better

well an ocean world would likely be able to feed a whole lot of mouths with all its resources especially since this is an ocean world big enough to have a moon that holds an atmosphere

There'd be fisheries, kelp and algae farms, etc.

of course having some ancient secret there would be awesome. I like the idea of putting a R'Lyeh-like underwater tomb city thing on the deepest trench in the ocean where some ancient horror has been sealed (by the Eldar or some shit just so they can flip out about humans living on the planet)

I would suggest a sealed daemon because of our chapter being foes with a chaos warband and it could be that in an attempt to seal a greater daemon under the ocean of the planet he got taken into the void. The chapters underwater training meant that it is the perfect candidate for defending this underwater tomb and so they were given the task of protecting the planet from chaos incursion.The fact that it is a hive world could lead to awesome fluff stories about the abyssal angels purging heretics from within.and perhaps even a planetary civil war between loyalists and heretics and a war to be waged with the freeing of a greater daemon in the balance.

My personal opinion? The piranhas should be a special mutant variety that has two mouths, one inside the other so they can bite you and hold on to you while they bite you and grind you with their inner mouth. Call em Bim-ranhas.

The piranhas are all female because the males latch on to the females and become bags of sperm for them to reproduce, the space marines were able to simulate the biological responses that a female would have if it was carrying several males, but without having to actually attach any. Because of this the piranhas attack anything that doesn't feel like one of their own, and when they bite they actually vent 90% of the gore they produce out of special 'feeding' gills that are designed to feed the males attached to her body. This causes a 'bloody veil' effect whenever battle is met.

All of the Abyssal Angels have a porous layer of ceramite added to their armor, this thin layer has to effect other than becoming stained with any colored liquid poured upon it, up to a point. Space Marine Scouts of the Abyssal Angels start off with grey body armor. As they fight and are exposed to the bloody veil of their Bim-ranhas, their armor slowly absorbs the bloody water and becomes stained to the point of being blood red. A Full space marine is said to cherish his armor and inscribe any debt or obligation into his armor in a new layer of porous ceramite that is covered to prevent turning red until the debt or obligation has been filled, and only then is the armor allowed to become full red once again.

>> No.14549490

Also the Bim-ranhas breed on the few dry outcroppings, so by stimulating the breeding nature of the Bim-ranha, they cause it to form the necessary bones it requires to climb and walk on the small dry deposits to lay its eggs, but because of the constant nature of the biological hormonal treatments, the Bim-ranha's 'fin-bones' keep becoming denser and more durable to the point where they can allow the Bim-ranha to move fast even on land and charge with a surprising burst of sudden speed.

>> No.14549531

sorry, typed that up when we were still working with the abyssal angels title, Abyssal Jaws works well too.

>> No.14549534

yeah no

that doesnt fit with the PRIDE IN THE COLORS or their hobby of carrying around bits of dead enemies

>> No.14549571

You know this means they would also be excellent at fighting in zero g. They should also modify the piranha with bionic upgrades and various tech so they can better operate in harsh environments and on other worlds.


>> No.14549584

Yes it does, they are prideful of their Red coloring because it is earned in battle, they don't consider a space marine a true marine until he has actually gained a true blood-dyed red armor. They specially make their armor so they literally wear their prowess in combat on their chests and pauldrons.

As for carrying bits of the enemy around, anything that makes its way through the fishes garbage disposal like jaws might interest an Abyssal Jaw to the point where he might like to keep it. Also aquatic animals get things stuck in them all the time, like the tigershark, so I could see the AJ cleaning it's pet's jaws and finding pieces of things it wants to collect in there.

>> No.14549591


if they can make servo-skulls float around we can make piranhas that can chew threw carapace armor do so as well!

i still like the alligator-piranha hybrid idea for the beastial companion

my suggestion was Maresia

hmmmm... well we could be lame and just call it Abyssus

>> No.14549661

It is out there compared to a normal setting, but this is 40k. Look at their examples of mutants, half have fully functional eyes or mouths on the tips of their tongues or similar shit.

They are slightly more out of this world than the fenresian wolf, but compare a wolf to a piranha and it is about the same difference.

The stuff I said about the piranha I actually took from real science. In our world, there are several types of fish that have the male attach to the female to provide sperm for reproduction in return for sustenance.

And I think the whole blood veil idea kinda goes with a blood angel based chapter.

>> No.14549674



>> No.14549687

I like Maresia for the aquatic planet, it doesn't scream out that it is an aquatic planet, but for some reason it fits an aquatic planet.

I say Tacsin for the deathworld, but am open for a better name.

oh ok now i'm cool with it

since the the Abyssal Jaws are over strength and that fish (i really needs a better name than bimrahna) I could see matralineal clans based on women carrying around badass enough genes to ensure that their sons get into the Abyssal Jaws

from what i've read the chapter is getting into the same vein as the iron snakes, chapter fortress is off planet thats covered in ocean maybe they have to hunt some great sea beast as part of their recrument process

That's extremely cool.

Abyssal Jaws, not Angels though.

>> No.14549725

Maresia for the planet, Abyssus for the system

well with the menfolk that are the best being taken out of the genepool to become space marines having the women attempt to keep a big portion of the "badass" genes would probably let them have a sizeable pool of recruits

i bet the SoB hate's the world

>> No.14549742

Maresia is a hive world though

all the big islands have been completed builtup into hives that sprawl out into the ocean

the moon with the fotress-monsatery above is an acidic hell swamp for turning recruits into marines

though i doubt you'd get to be an Abyssal Jaw without killing your own sea monster

>> No.14549773

There will be Merfolk?

>> No.14549776

Since they don't follow the codex too well and they are over strength, I could see the entire purpose of the planet being focused around producing sons strong enough to join the Abyssal Jaws.

They could be like the black templars, have more than the 1,000 SMs but they also have thousands of potential space marines.

Also I see it as being a hive world that used to be above ground, but when the emperor freed the humans of their xeno-masters, the foul xenos melted the polar icecaps and caused the planet to become 97% covered in ocean. The hives are built upon the bones of the old hive cities, which were based upon mountains that were appropriate.

Also due to the huge amount of oxygen in the waters, any space marine can breath in it permanently and humans can easily breath underwater with even the most simple of air filtering units.

However, due to having to work underwater so much, humans living on the planet tend to be more muscular and have better endurance than the normal human, but tend to be slightly unbalanced when they move and have a slight difficulty breathing during physical exertions due to a lower oxygen content in the air.

>> No.14549798

the last part I mean when they are moving outside of water and when they are breathing air from another planet such as on a spaceship or another world.

>> No.14549804

Two black diagonal lines, one on each side of a pair of open Piranha jaws with a single drop of blood in the circle the jaws make.

The black lines are meant to represent the abyss, the jaws are meant to represent the... jaws, the drop of blood to represent both their ancestry and victory, since they view blood as victory, a space marine with many victories will have bloody red armor.

Although I swear I've seen a chapter icon like that before.

>> No.14550554

a basic symbol surrounded by vertical lines or diagonal lines is one of the basic and more used designs in the successor chapters of space marines.

Which is why I like the idea, it works for multiple reasons, has multiple means, is simple enough that you could put it entirely on a pauldron, gun, sword, or letter seal and not lose any parts and still is iconic and shows their links to the blood angels.
