I was thinking of having my Chaos Warband follow the Codex Astartes.
Thoughts on this, /tg/?

Do what you want with your own army.

As long as it's not game-breaking no one cares.

Rule wise or fluffwise?

Rulewise, knock yourself out.

Fluffwise, they're called Renegades(think the Soul Drinkers).

>> No.17346890

My imps are lead by a chaos space marine


>> No.17346901

And I don't mean renegades per se. I mean actual Chaos-worshipping Marines that use Codex tactics and even recite passages during battle.
Kind of like Chaos Ultramarines.
Or would it just be silly?

>> No.17346906


I don't think that counts, there's already rules for "Chaos guard".

>> No.17346929

Umm....yeah. Renegades are the best I can think of. Alpha Legion is the next closest since they just confuse everyone.


>> No.17346935

>Chaos Warband follow the Codex Astartes.

Blood Ravens?

"With combat knife, boltgun and grenade, the Space Marine shall assail his foe."

"The chainsword is the will of the Space Marine made manifest."

"When harried, the Space Marine shall drive his enemies back."

"The Space Marine shall master all weapons -- and all battlefields."

"A single Space Marine squad shall be worth whole regiments."

Exactly. I got the idea from that guy.

Stop quoting the Codex in service of the enemy!

Shall we call this manuver "Steel Rain?"

This could be interesting. An ultramarines successor chapter that fell to chaos because they thought the emperor was getting in the way of following the tenents of the codex?

>> No.17347012


>> No.17347015

Reminds me of my own personal warband. A new space marine, a scout basically, who got captured by the forces of chaos. They tried to convert him, and started to do a pretty good job, until he found an old legend on a dusty planet he was attacking at the head of his warband. A single man, once the equal of Abbadon himself, who out-fought Lucius and doubted even in the face of Erebus. Inspired by the tale, the man renamed himself, and now Mournival Loken leads the Twisted Fists warband in using chaos against itself.

>> No.17347020

It lacks boxes if you ask me,the metal kind.

>> No.17347022

I suppose having a renegade chapter who sees the benefits of following the system put in place by the Codex Astartes could be pretty interesting. Better than "durr we are traitors that r mean we shall destroy all new weapons and aemouer lol KHAOSS111!!!1"

>> No.17347027

I'd forgotten how well written Chaos Rising was.

Well, if you didn't go for the retarded Pure path.

> Destroy new weapons and armour
J'excuse? When does chaos do this?

>> No.17347037

It's quiet a fun idea, there's a lot you could do with it. I'm imagining space marines a bit like Westboro Baptist Church. They claim to be the only people properly embracing / understand chirtsianity / imperium yet everyone else sees them as the exact oppoiset.

That's the reason all Chaos Marines look the same.

Even the ones which converted three centuries ago.

Tarkus and Avitus has the best traitor lines, I think

"And then -

>> No.17347078

Current codex focuses more on post-Heresy Renegade Chapters. So where are the assault cannons? The storm bolters? The Land Speeders? And so on.

Hell, things like drop pods and Apothecaries are mentioned in the fluff, even for the original Traitor Legions, but can you actually take them? Lolnope.

Jonah Betrayal was the saddest one.

It wasn't his fault.

I like how blatantly obvious the fallen angel is

Even so, with more of them coming, they bring few enough numbers compared to the original legions that the technology isn't yet available in large enough force to be regularly taken.

Hey guys.

What if, bear with me.
There was A Chapter who's geneseed mutation turned them into women.

>> No.17347143

A single "modern" Chapter that's turned renegade should be able to use the weapons currently at it's disposal. Fluff excuse? They destroy all the new fangled tech to honor the gods.

>> No.17347162

Do it properly!

"Someday, you will see through all the lies.

And then.

The dead will come for you as well."

>> No.17347163

You could do renegade space marines...without being affiliated with chaos. Despite all their training, cybernetics and surgical enhancements; they are just humans who get bored, jealous and can feel underappreciated despite all the space marine worship via statues...in the end what depresses and jades most space marines is just war...never ending war.

Space Marine Pirates GO!

You did ask for this, to be fair.

OR, you know, you use them with the codex whose equipment they still have and whose abilities they still invoke, simply in chaos' name.

shit, if you want female T4 3+ saves so badly, do something interesting with them

What? I never said anything regarding the validity of OP's thing. I said it was more interesting than the newer Chaos Warbands just destroying their stuff. I'm just explaining why they do that.

RED versus BLUE

One side good one side bad.

Loyalist Space Marines versus Loyalist Space Marines. Tau versus Tau. Loyalist Imperial Guard versus Loyalist Imperial Guard. Chaos versus Chaos. Tyranid versus Tyranid.


>> No.17347331

Thematically very appropriate for Renegades, especially an Ultramarine successor. Interesting as well, to see a take on renegades that isn't just HURR DURR SPIKES AND LOOTAN.

And works fluff-wise too.

Yeah? Big deal...
