Hey everyone, I don't know how much you guys enjoy this or not, but I love customization, and since I'm going to start playing 40k soon, I was wondering if I could get any help with creating a custom chapter. I don't like that half ass "They are this chapter with different colors" I enjoy the full detail aspect. Anyone willing to help me out?

>> No.18575238

What do you enjoy? I made a whole chapter based around the Knights of Ni from Monty Python, complete with Holy Handgrenades (Melta bombs) and Power Herrings (Power swords).

This gives you a chance to do whatever the fuck you want with your army. If anyone questions your armies awesome heritage then fuck them. It's yours.

There are few greater sights in apocalypse games then a whole table full of people in tears of joy because there's a dreadnought on the table that looks like the Black Knight.

And that, bitches, is what wargaming is about.

Well I'm the guy from a thread, who wanted to add females to a Space Wolves army. I'm one who really enjoys writing the story as much as making the models and playing. So just need a good homeworld and other stuff of that nature.

Pick a type of environment you enjoy and build off that.
I built my IG regiment based on the idea of a whole planet being

Hint, space marines don't really have a sex drive.

>> No.18575439

Also, just to clerify some things, and I'm not trying to be "That Guy". The reason there are no female marines is not because the Imperium doesn't allow females to join the ranks, it's that the gene-seed (The stuff that actually makes a Space Marine, a Space Marine) and other implants they put into their future marines is actually not compatible with the female genome. They literally can not become a Space Marine in any sense of the word. But if you wanna play it, go for it dude. Green stuff them boobs on that power armour!

they've been indoctrinated to the point that they just don't get it up, for want of a better term. I believe one of the Horus Heresy novels has a bunch of Emperor's Children at a concert with a bunch of normal people.

Death world.. Feral culture... it's entirely conceivable that someone in their early teens is going to be having sex. Especially a physically capable, healthy male like all modern space marine recruits are.

There is absolutely zero mention of (non-chaos) space marines having sex, in any written GW material. And no, "making a pass" isn't good enough

Space Wolves are selected after falling valiantly in battle on their homeworld. The "Choosers Of The Dead" come and retrieve the ones who proved themselves worthy and are still alive enough to be saved by Imperial medicine. Thus Space Wolf initiates are usually adults (by the standards of their homeworld's primitive Viking-style society at least, so prolly around sixteen at the young end). Point is, plenty of time for Lukas to get his pimp on.

Space Wolves are weird.

Njal Stormcaller was a big fellow with a full beard raiding with other warriors when he was recruited.

Their gene-seed won't activate without the Canis Helix, it's possible that this allows also them to recruit older folks.

>> No.18575647

>>18575633
And that would actually be quite young. Usually they're older when they're chosen since they have to prove themselves in battle by going out like total badasses. And holding on to that last thread of life long enough for the Choosers to get there.

Granted, feel kind of like an idiot now that that's posted.

OP (If you're still lurking) if you're still in to the idea of a "Space Wolf" type army, why not switch up the theme from viking norsemen to Galic, or Celtic origins? You could at least get some pretty neat pauldron designs out of it.

Go me. Also, if I'm not mistaken their helmets were pretty cool as well. I always liked that one Space Marine...Veteran maybe? With the outstretched wings coming off the front of the helmet.

Anyways, I once played a BC game where a renegade (female) pleased all 4 of the gods in the trails given to her first (some interparty competition etc etc) and her reward was geneseed.We all deicided that with how she greatly pleased all 4 faces of chaos it was OK to make her a Astartes with motherfucking Ahriman and favor of the gods assisting us with the process.

That's only some of their recruits. I believe it's in the novel "Killing Fields" or the one before that, that goes on to explain their crazy mutation vats they grew guys in, but most of them get rejected and flushed down the toilet. Like other traitor legions most of their new guys are taken from left over heretics to see if they have the stuff, or to just watch them suffer through it and die. A lot of the traitor legions gene-seed is actually stolen loyalist stock. They rarely use their own, which causes discontent between the new recruits and the veterans, seeing them mostly as "mongrels" that are staining the name of their proud legion.

They both still have the Shaman thing up, but I don't think that implies he's omnipotent. I don't know about his form changing, but It's basically implied that he's almost every major figure in the history of humanity.
