you are now a primarch based on your own personality traits

during the time of the great crusade, the emperor finds you and realizes you are one of his lost sons, albeit perhaps a lazy one

after some ordeal he gives you command of your own legion whose astartes were sired using your genestock

A great capacity to learn and teach, devotion to properly managing planets under my control to ensure maximum productivity and conditions, greater than average strength


Favoring long range warfare and precision strikes to kill targets and big loud automatic weapons for suppression. Stealth infiltration and sniper / spotter teams are more common than tactical squads, large amounts of devastators and fewer melee oriented squads fewer tanks but more artillery

Psykers are a danger and must be researched so that we can properly utilize them and learn to counter enemy sorcerers powers

>describe your powers as a primarch
I would be capable of short bursts of terrifying speed even by primarch standards, would be a crack shot, and would have a psychic power that allows me to pass unseen.

>what is the name of your legion?
The Argent Comets.

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
A one-two punch of heavy ranged bombardment (artillery, thunderfire, etc--big explosions from far off) followed by swarms of close-combat marines (probably assault marines in drop pods, in keeping with the theme). Despite using heavy guns, we don't do siege work--if the enemy is in a fortress we ignore them and conquer the rest of the planet. Let Dorn or Perturabo dig them out.

>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?
We're all psykers to an extent, and I like Magnus' desire to preserve knowledge. I'd support him.

>at the time of the heresy, who do you side with?
That would depend on how the Emperor treated me personally.

>> No.26540755

>describe your powers as a primarch
Fantastic navigation, perceptive, knowledgeable. Revered as a moderator of debates.

>what is the name of your legion?
The Gray Owls

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
Specialising in sneak attacks with a heavy focus on air support. We only put troops on the ground when we see it as absolutely necessary, though it often, unfortunately is. We possess a weak array of terminator armour and tanks, preferring less armoured and bulky means.

>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?
While we don't feel Librarians are innately evil or to be feared, The Gray Owls do not employ them because we consider them unreliable and would rather field another bolter than a psychically-charged brain. That being said, we see no reason for other legions to not use them and therefore quietly disagree with the verdict.

>at the time of the heresy, who do you side with?
Can I go rogue? If not, the emperor just because chaos looks slimy and unappealing. I would prefer to serve humanity before the emperor.

>> No.26540758

Wanted to add that I make use of my psykers in both attack phases: diviners to help aim the big guns and the rest into the fire swinging those lovely force swords.

>describe your powers as a primarch

Sharp, Quick witted. Able to channel rage for short bursts. Pride, the somewhat blinding kind. Ability to not respond to pain.

>what is the name of your legion?

The Reborn

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?

Extreme pride. Quick wits and a habit for individualism but still group orientated. Make use of small elite squads and massive amounts of long range and orbital strikes.

>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?

I am the good-natured, friend-to-all-my-brothers primarch. When two legions feud, when the Wolf and the Lion nearly come to blows, when Perturabo knocks down Dorn's sand castle, it is I who sorts out their shit and gets them to play nice.

My legion is the Brothers of Sol

My legion is all about armour. Fellblades, Predators, Whirlwinds, and Vindicators. Our motorpool is the envy of the other Legions.

Psykers are mutants, but they are a grim necessity. Our librarium is stunted and closely watched, and our astropaths are never unsupervised.

My Legion attempts to make peace between warring brothers, and our numbers are devastated as a result. Horus's men have no interest in peace, and slaughter the Sons of Sol out of hand. My failure to immediately condemn Horus and his cohorts earns me suspicion and ire from the other loyalist factions, and much of my legion is lost to "accidents" and friendly fire. By the end of the Heresy, only a few hundred remain. We travel to the Eye to seek out death or redemption.

I'd be a excellent duellist and sweet talker, witty, crafty and manipulating but honest and honourable to my opponents or comrades. I guess as a more notable primarch ability I'd have quick reflexes and a good shot.

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?

People often describe me as a mix between Captain Jack and Barbossa. As a negative/positive (depending on the situation), deranged and a bit loopy but clear headed in the things I know.

Tactics would involve naval warfare, stealth, lightning warfare, sabotage.

>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?

Probably completely disregard them as I need psykers to find wealth and powerful artefacts

>at the time of the heresy, who do you side with?

I would pack up with my crew and raid Chaos ships looking for these new and powerful artefacts they have been digging up, would probably sustain heavy loses against the Warmaster and his combined legions as a result. Afterwards I'd probably end up as a one of the largest pirates in the galaxy with all sorts of crew types, including my original crew marines and somehow being corrupted or cursed in someway.

Would still exist in the 41st raiding worlds and ships looking for things that would aid me, pretty neutral towards the whole chaos and imperial thing and often fight in the warp against all manner of things.

As regards to the Imperium I'd be apathetic, if they happen to be on a world with something I want on it then they can consider themselves dead or stopped. I'd be traveling throughout the galaxy raiding, exploring and hunting for new and wondrous things. As a result will probably be quite neutral to all things whether Imperial, Xeno or Chaos, just don't get in my way.

Armour colours I'm not sure, I'd be wearing clothes over the armour, probably not even have a uniform or power armour. But if I did (as well as my marines) they'd cover it with jackets and other clothing like marines would put robes on themselves.

>I would like to know what your faction's diplomatic status is in regards to the ultramarines

We accept trade convoys from the Realm of Ultramar and respect them for their empires self-sufficiency and well guarded borders. We would almost certainly have sent aid during the Hive-Fleet Behemoth Crisis. That is as far as it goes. Our boarders are closed for economic migration or pilgrimage and uschedualed ships entering our system are fired upon and captured as standard.

Never signed up to the Codex. Still broke Legion up. Each world in the Commonwealth has semi-independent Guardian Forces. They never get to serve on worlds they grew up on and are spread around as much as possible. Rotated every 50 - 100 years to prevent too much loyalty to one world forming.

Will not subject my realm to his laws.

>also, what would your response/comments have been to the way Lorgar and his word bearers approached the crusade?

His methods were admirable. He found a world. Beat it down as little as possible, built it back up and gave the people a sense of pride in their new Imperial Citizenship.

Would still have told him to go fuck himself if he tried to tempt me to chaos. But politely, I am a state leader after all and good manners must be maintained.

Concerned above all with the preservation and furtherance of human life.

Devious, analytical, and observant. Unfailingly rational and level headed. Finds most other beings
predictable to a fault.

Poor at planning and strategy in the long term, expert in improvisation and close-quarters tactics.

>what is the name of your legion?

Void Hunters

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?

Traps, ambushes. Lack of fast-moving ground- or air-based weapons platforms, but make frequent
use of armed air transports and drop pods.

Vicious, small scale attacks, spread over a wide area, intended to drive the behaviour of the enemy
towards a weak position. Focus on routing enemy forces towards captured and manned strongpoints,

Preference for standard boltgun equipped marines. Marksmanship valued more so than close combat

Psykers are valuable, and useful. Astartes can be trusted with the power of the warp. Skills of foresight

Well, in paintball I always led from the front. Played scout, then ran back with the intel to put the rest of the team into better positions. Would occasionally shield some of the more hesitant players to get them where they were needed. Went for up close "kills" where my high reaction time usually let me get the drop on people. If an enemy spotted me, I'd lay out some covering fire, then run to another position while they were down, shooting to prevent peeking. Most of the time I could bunker tag people while they were shooting at my old position.

I would have stealth or shrouded and would shun terminator armor for something much lighter. Armament would be a plasma pistol and an array of grenades and melta bombs (to simulating tagging out bunkers). I'd give buffs to scouts similar to Telion.

Powers: Talented in writing and oral speaking, agile, slightly psychic.

Physical traits: Tallest Primarch, has a mop of brown hair.

Characteristics: Infatuated with the Eldar and their history, has a good sense of humor, loves the Imperial Army, has a deep voice.

He also maintains neutral connections with the other Primarchs, preferring to avoid drama. He follows the Emperor as he believes that it is in the best interests of Humanity.

Legion Name: The Screatching Spectres.

Legion Tactics: The Legion serves as Shock Troops and Reconassiance in Imperial Army Regiments. Known to use psychological warfare. Prefer to use of mixture of melee and ranged weaponry.

Council of Nikaea: Has heavy sympathies for Magnus, but sides with the Emperor for fear of leading humanity astray.

Heresy: Sides with the Emperor. His loyalty to his race comes first. His legion for the most part comes out unscathed.

>Describe any special friendships/rivalries your legion has with any of the others
As I said before, we don’t like the Night Lords. We are friendly with both the Angels as well as the Word Bearers because they recognize themselves as servants as well as warriors. We also have a small reputation of disdain towards the White Scars/Raven Guard; As our primarch always said, “The term ‘hit and run’ implies that somewhere along the line, someone has stopped fighting. Needless to say, that is unacceptable.”

>Describe some of your legion's most memorable victories/defeats
Our most memorable victory would doubtless be the repulsion of a large force of Death Guard from the planet Karnak. In terms of defeats, we have not had many, but the worst was when the locals of an Eldar Exodite world repulsed our battlefleet without even having to call for craftworld support. Losing is a bitch, but losing to Amish elves is even worse.

>Leman Russ has been told that you and your legion are going to Chaos. Now his fleet is in your home planet's orbit. What do?

>Powers as a primarch
Intelligence gathering, marksmanship, infiltration. Kind of quiet, but can be well spoken on occasion. Hard on for world building. Probably improvised weapons in there somewhere. Finally all that military training is good for something.
>Name of the Legion
Grey Brothers. It's bland, boring, forgettable. Exactly what we want to be. Symbol should be something equally forgetable.
>Main Tactics
Infiltration, Deception, Long range attacks and explosives. Air assault tactics as well. When they strike it's like a peaceful movie suddenly having the director change from Sophia Coppella to Michael Bay. We would have specialists in infiltration and fighting behind enemy lines. There would be rules for deep striking etc because of this. The Grey Brothers would abscond glorious combat, and strike the enemy in the back or blow their sorry asses up. Shock and Awe tactics especially. Basically xenos and traitors fighting us should experience extreme despair.
>Main Characteristics
We probably would get along well with the White Scars, and maybe the Raven Guard, so I guess a history with those guys. We might be fleet based, and not have a homeworld, though I think that would be more from terraforming worlds as a sort of side thing. Good relatins with the IG and =][= would be encouraged, as would working with the sisters. However, our main speciality will always be similar to Alpha Legion, which would be infiltration and behind enemy lines tactics. So we probably would have been buddies with Alpharius and Omegeon before the Heresy.
> As the primarch where do you stand on the council of nikea issue
Psykers are a useful resource.
>During the time of the Heresy who would you side with.
Personally, I think I would stick with the Emperor. He has been kind enough to give me a legion and some kick ass power armor, that's a qualifier for a pretty damn good dad to me. We would be heartbroken about Alpharius though (or would we?)

To be able to come up with tactics so outlandish or so moronic that actually works and catches even a tactical genius off guard. All the while being clumsy and well mannered, yet able to sneak in stuff or sneak stuff out without being detected.
>what is the name of your legion?
The Paradox
>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
Extremely unconventional warfare that focuses on ranged combat in places no one even thinks of defending or think anyone would be sane to attack from, whether they be from the air, underwater, under ice, underground, or teleporting in. If that fails, fast and hard hitting air strikes on command structures and anything vital to the enemy.

Should that even fail, mass heavily armored vehicles and infantry to take out the main command post.

>what is the name of your legion?
Aurum Knights
>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
Tactics focus on heavy assaults (involving armoured speeders and tanks), siege-breaking (especially melee action), and naval combat. The Primarch's specific zeal for swordsmanship and riding means all marines of this legion are capable riders and swordsmen.
>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?

Late to the party and I don't care:

>Extremely diplomatic and perceptive, generally inspiring to those around him. Almost preternaturally soothing to the agitated, or able to whip his men into wicked righteous rages.
However, despite being strong tactically, he is rather easily fooled, so reliant on strong advisers, intelligence, and generally weak minded opponents. Not a genius in any stretch, but against average foes, he can run circles around them.
> The Telestial Specters
> Primarily focused on recon, much of the 'heavy lifting' is performed by the Imperial Navy, or non-humans led to combat. When actually drawn into combat, a focus on scouts and air support is key. Mobile, low impact combat, generally focused on superior firepower mounted on mobile platforms.
Excessive use of landspeeders prefered to bikes, assault marines to drop pods, and stormravens to landraiders.

>In Nikea he remaind primarily silent. Loyalty to the Emporer was a stable maxim, but the whispers of the warp were strong, and Magnus rather convincing. After the Heresy, Librarians were seen as a great advantage, regrettable resulting in many new fallen. In a time post-Heresy, an internal edict was made to abolish psykers, but the primarchs own strong warp affinity made this difficult, and an uneasy "truce" was made, wherein Chaplains are largely responsible for keeping an eye on the few Librarians.
>Much of the legion was split. Honor bound to help defend Terra and the Emperor, but susceptible to the whispers of the warp, The Telestial Specters found themselves largely on both sides of the war, with the Primarch luckily landing with Loyalists. Most traitors within the legion were slain during combat, tricked into tactically unsound positions simply to hold off loyalists long enough for larger traitor legions to steam roll them.

Profound orators, subtle and swift fighters, but dangerous susceptible to the lure of the warp, they are often put against non-warp threats.

Against intelligent enemies, psychological warfare. Why kill them when we can get them to kill themselves?

Against unintelligent enemies (or when forced to combat), emphasize hit-and-run tactics above brute force. You can't harm what you can't catch.

>describe your powers as a primarch
Hm... Telekinesis and Telepathy. And probably a really sharp mind for learning stuff.

>what is the name of your legion?
Heirs of Typhon, later renamed Chimera Legion

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
Chimera marines prefer to use advanced technology to overpower their enemies. The legion also takes time to conduct extensive biological studies of interesting specimens, human or xeno.

>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?
Psykers, man. Haters gonna hate.

>at the time of the heresy, who do you side with?
For Emperor and Imperium.

Iron Hands (We got a bunch of techmarines who love their bionics as much as you do! Manus is a bro!)

Emperor's Children (A friend of Manus is a friend of mine)

Alpha Legion (I appreciate the sneaky. Saved my bacon more than once)

Night Lords (Saw Konrad as a young brother in need of guidance. However, not liking what his legion did on a regular basis. Still, liked his stealthiness)

Thousand Sons (Magnus and I have study sessions together)

Word Bearers (Don't like his preaching. More into AdMech stuff anyways)

World Eaters (Don't like Angron's anger fueled bloodshed)

Ultramarines (Did not get along well with the Head Smurf over organizational issues)

White Scars (Found Khan to be somewhat barbaric)

Got my legion's ass handed to me when I decided to fight a xeno race called the Ygryd. Turns out, those little bastards packed a mean punch despite their size and they got some nifty powered armor. Tried getting my hands on it, but they ended up blowing in my face. I called for a withdrawal to rethink some plans. Thankfully, Alpharius later sent a bunch of his guys to fuck their shit up. We finally got to studying the xeno bastards and their tech!

I was gifted with incredible reflexes and coordination and my mind was highly adaptive. I was spirited away by the Warp as well, but I landed not in a war-torn region region of Space, but in the Interex. The world I landed on was peaceful and the people that found me brought me to a doctor to check me out. I was, after all, some alien baby. My strange physiology got detected, and I was monitored by an interested group of Biologists while I moved in with the family that had found me. I was quick to absorb the knowledge around me, particularly the subspace discipline.
This ever-present scientific theory dealt with the what the Empire calls the Immaterium, but more often the Warp. It had in its philosophical discourse replaced a religion and was a topic of research in every scientific discipline. At its core was an imperative of balance which severely limited the psionic strength of the Interex and every agressive use of subspace, slightly similar to doctrines the Mechanicum uses.
While my nature was somewhat tempered by studies of the doctrine, I still sought conflict and excelled at it. I joined the Peacekeepers of the Interex, a largely drone-based force mainly intended to keep enemies at bay with the least possible amount of bloodshed. Expansion was, if at all, reached by diplomacy - a planet that did not adhere to the doctrine could not be part of the Interex. The forces of Chaos were kept at bay by a specialized caste of subspace lawyers whose intricate art of pactmaking had once even famously trapped a Master of Tscheensch (who had enslaved the Kinebrach race) within the traverse-blade Anathame (it was said that the creature was laughing while it entered the blade.

>> No.26557475

When my father came looking for me, the Interex nearly started a conflict. His ships were primitive things that ripped open subspace in a crude manner and he did have a faible for dramatic entries and an almost instinctive psionic manipulation of the human heart that the Interex would recognize and frown upon on first contact. Learning my true heritage, I decided to comew with him.
I did not get along with my father at all. While his psionic power exceeded mine a hundredfold, I recognized him for what he was: the product of ancient shamanist tradition, a sensei at best and a con man at worst. Our paradigms conflicted almost instantly. He told me to speak no more of the Warp, but my whole education had trained me to search for interdependencies. As a result, he largely kept me from my brothers, whose ferocity and bloodlust I found repulsively similar to the Harvesters of Corn. Time and again I tried to reason with my father about the imprint a bloodshed as that planned crusade would leave on the subspace of our galaxy, but he would not discuss his plans with me, since he did not fully trust the Interex, or me.
When the Crusade came, I was given the task of coordinating the Logistics. My brothers assumed that this should be a punishment, in fact my father had read my mind and granted my wish of not partaking in such bloodshed. We had barely talked since our disagreement about the Imperial Truth, when I had told him that he could not hide the truth and at the same time force people to obey it.
I was at work at the other side of the galaxy when the newes of the war against the Interex reached me. This last straw prompted me to take the half of my Legion who was at that time more loyal to me, and leave Imperial Space in search for a new hope for Mankind. Many of my legion however chose to not forsake their responsibilities towards humanity in the galaxy, and stay to do their best to protect and moderate them.

>Describe any special friendships/rivalries your legion has with any of the others

Quite like the adherents of the Promethium Cult for their belief in self-sufficiency. We once allowed the Lamentors to rest in our realm until they had scraped themselves back together enough to carry on, which is fucking rare for such isolationists. Deep and abiding hatred between us and the sons of Russ for his attack at Nova Caanan.

>Describe some of your legion's most memorable victories/defeats

Beating the forces of Russ back from our homeworld of Nova Caanan when the Emperor wanted to bring us to heel for not outright choosing his side. Deflected a quite sizable splinter force during the 4th Black Crusade. Got bogged down fighting a small hive-fleet towards the mid point of M41, ultimately victorious but at quite a cost in lives and resources. Lost one world in three days to Enslaver Epidemic, had to nuke from orbit.

>Leman Russ has been told that you and your legion are going to Chaos. Now his fleet is in your home planet's orbit. What do?

Leman Russ is going to try and attack Nova Caanan? The world that we have been fortifying for an off-world attack for ~200 years? Try to dissuade him from attacking my realm on baseless charges. Try to be reasonable but refuse to back down. Russ sees my empire not taking sides as taking the wrong side. War ensues. If Russ was even present at this battle he was part of the retreating forces. Take the bodies of his fallen, harvest their gene-see, plunder their armour, weapons, equipment and ships and bury whats left of their bodies into the earth in unmarked fields.

Hmm, as a Primarch I would probably distinguish myself not with intelligence, strength or tactical thinking. Rather, I'd be known for my opportunism and insight, a wise observer. If it doesn't sound too mary sue I would also have Epsilon psyker abilities. My major flaws would likely be my poor self-confidence and control obsession.

I'm not sure about the name, but I'll call them Celestial Sons/Lords for now. Their strength wouldn't be their skill in battle, rather they would be known for propaganda warfare, divide and conquer and later developing infrastructure.

At the council of Nikea I would be in favor of psykers, believing them to be a powerful tool against the enemy.

I would likely turn traitor, not because "lol chaos fuck yeah", but rather because I would probably end up friends with Lorgar, Magnus and Perturabo. So I'd likely take their side in things, becoming convinced that the Emperor is holding the Imperium back and that Horus should rule in his place.

But in the end all the Chaplains in my legion would probably take us in the deep end of megalomaniac crazy and I'd try to carve out some demonic empire before being pushed back into the Eye of Terror.

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?

The primarch was always a lazy faggot with an eye for systems analysis and design and came to the conclusion that dealing with logistics is extremely effort and cost-efficent and safe. Surprising no one, this didnt bode well with the other space marines so the primarch attempted to broaden the portfolio by being a dedicated support element, some units who can always be called in and depended upon as the rested, well trained last line of defense. Other legions still called him a coward and a useless cur because people tend to reserve heroic last stands and brave charges to the death lifting the eagle more than no one dying in hunger, most tanks not breaking down before reaching the frontline, proper medivac and enemy counerassaults not breaking through in defense in depth so despite being present at lot of campaigns and earning a lot of battle honors no one has rememberd the champer being particularly brave or valiant. Its colors were red-white with green markings for ground troops, maroon for armor and navy blue for... uh navy.

We dont give too much fucks about that. Psykers are essential to navigation but exceeding dangerous. We leave it there.

In the heresy the legion got completely decimated when thrust into sudden action and most of their garrison/supply elements sided with the legion they were originally attached too, giving them a reputation of callous mercenaries. Despite the primarch was trying to side with the Emperor but the other imperial commanders distrusted him enough to position his units far from any action. The primarch and the bulk of the remants of the legion were destroyed on a hive world, being caught between a huge ork waaagh and a dark eldar slave raid, both seeking to prey on the weakness of the Imperum. Chaos later arrived and purged the planet.

>> No.26564207


contd. The remaining units who sided with chaos realized their error after this, and seeing what Horus became and got cold feet, but they were simply slaughtered before they had a significant impact on the invastion of terra, only managing to delay it with 4 hours.

The remants who have sided with the Imperium was later assimilated into understrength chapters, most notably to the Ultramarines and Imperial Fists, the former seeing them as valuable reservists the latter cowards needing to be punished.

The only chapter relic surviving is the Last Line, an incomplete terminator armor with battle honors for nothing else but defensive actions.

>> No.26564252

>describe your powers as a primarch
Probably one of the less civilized primarchs, terminator armour and a giant two handed power axe. Overall I would be one of the big guys good at close combat and leading assaults.
>what is the name of your legion?
Solar Knights
>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
It is a legion that tends to prefer siege warfare and long range bombardments, with the final offensive being carried out by assault troops supported by recon squads.

The legion prefers heavier close combat weapons like relic blades, thunder hammers, and power fists, and tends to fight dirty in close combat, including spitting acid. The chapter tends to have a culture promoting brute strength over subtlety, idealizing civilization as a luxury for when the galaxy is finally united under the Imperium.

>describe your powers as a primarch
Whether by radiation, warp poisoning, vacuum exposure in the early stages of development or just plain old defective gene-strain this Primarch did not end up in the best of shape. He grew up as his brother primarchs but at age 50 he started to wither. Barely stronger than an average space marines, looks emaciated and ill with dry parchment skin and no hair. Intellect of a Primarch still intact. Not as bright as Magnus but not as thick as Russ or Angron. Gene-seed derived from his flesh too unstable to found conventional legion. In constant pain to a greater or lesser degree. Gets along better with regular poeple.

>what is the name of your legion?
The Forgettables.

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?
With no astartes of his own he had to improvise. His homeworld was quite technologically advanced. Those who volunteered to join his army were given extensive but discreet cybernetic work. Plasteel reinforced skeleton, carbon-fiber ligaments and tendons, artificial extra-spetrum eyes with low light vision and zoom capabilities, fiber-bundle taken from power armour and threaded through muscles, neural blocks in the brain to switch off pain and a high tensile micro-weave under the skin. Extremely good infiltrators as they still look 100% human.

Psykers have no place on the battle-field and need to be monitored with extreme caution. But at the end of the day they are humans born with a door to Hell stuck in their heads and so it can't be fun for them either.

>Describe any special friendships/rivalries your legion has with any of the others
Got on well with Nigh Lords and their Primarch before they started to go off the deep end mid-Crusade. Always got on well with Dorn and Vulkan. Liked Gulliman befor he tried to impose his reforms. Hated Russ, Angron and Khan. Pretty neutral on all the others, probably never met them.

Inform him that all of my agents are out at the moment trying to stabilise a realm thats collapsing and suggest he go do the same rather than acting like a rabid dog. Also inform him that I will be coming aboard so we can talk face to face. Truth be told there wouldn't be anything I could do to stop him if he was going to drag me back to Terra and at least this way hes not going to tear half the planet down clumsily looking for me.

>describe your powers as a primarch

Not a physical powerhouse (by primarch standards anyway) but the absolute best when it comes to lateral thinking, dirty tricks, unconventional tactics, and grand strategy. Would probably get ground down in a straight up fight against other primarchs. Which is why I'd never let it come to a straight fight.

Intelligent, resourceful, adaptable, silver tongued. I'd cultivate these virtues in my commanders and men.

If there's one primarch who can take a bad hand and turn it into a winner, it's this one.

>what is the name of your legion?

The Ragged Legion

>what are its main tactics/characteristics?

Mobility, trickery, unpredictability. We don't really have 'standard' tactics because our modus operandi is doing things other armies wouldn't think to do.

Common themes are not being where the enemy expects us to be, hit and run tactics, ambushes, and real out of the box shit.

Think abandoning a fortress to be stormed by orcs and then detonating demolition charges placed on the foundations. Think burying drop pods underground facing upwards which erupt when the more vulnerable rearguard is passing by. Think bluffing the use of exterminatus on a planet to force an enemy to flee their fortifications.

We're generalists at heart, since our tactics demand more flexibility than other legions.

The other legions tend not to like us because we draw strength from free thought and initiative, not just discipline and overwhelming firepower. They tend to see us as dishonourable and potentially heretical.

Grey colour scheme trimmed with azure.

>as a primarch, where do you land on the whole council of nikaea issue?

Psykers might be a tad unpredictable. But that's kind of what we do in the Ragged Legion, so we're inclined to be tolerant up to a point.

>Describe any special friendships/rivalries your legion has with any of the others

Orthodox legions hate our guts, but tolerate us because we're effective. Some of the less rigid types appreciate that even if we're unconventional we're still loyal servants of mankind and the Emprah. But, none of them fully trust us.

>Describe some of your legion's most memorable victories/defeats

I remember this one time when some of our scouts took potshots at a massive band of Khornate berserkers and then melted away into the forest. The dumb fucks were so enraged they charged right into the main body of their forces and started cutting them to bits. They thought they had been the ones taking shots.

Fucking chaos man.

Of course, they did overrun that planet eventually. Being clever can even the odds, but there's no real replacement for having a bigger army and bigger guns.

>Leman Russ has been told that you and your legion are going to Chaos. Now his fleet is in your home planet's orbit. What do?

Challenge him to single combat on 'neutral ground' to settle the matter. He'll accept because, in a fair fight, he would slaughter me.

Turns out the ground isn't so neutral after all: it's a minefield. I know the layout, he doesn't.

When I have him at my mercy, let him go and throw down my arms to prove we aren't tainted by chaos.

How much Chaos? Does the Primarch become a Daemon Prince? What god?

>> No.26568995

Enough chaos to employ it as a weapon and a way to strengthen themselves without becoming balls-out corrupted. I'm thinking the primarch will become a Daemon Prince after dicking over some loyalists in a wonderfully convoluted scheme and sacrificing a bunch of dead astartes to the dark gods. Then he and Perturabo brofist because he can dig that shit.
If I had to pick a specific god for them it would be Tzeentch, because knowledge and shceming and whatnot.

Intense laziness. Master Crafted half truths used to prevent immediate (if at all any) action of self and legion.

Insert strike force as far as possible from the target to draw out campaign as long as possible to spend time on planet just dicking around. Otherwise, Masters of Artillery.

Bomb the piss out of them from range. Develop bunker-buster like bombs. If they have turrets or something to keep me from bombing them, send in a stealth team to take it out. Once my assault is over, send in the ground forces to clean up.
Pro psyker. Claim its humanity's next evolutionary step. Also call out Russ on his bullshit.

>Describe any special friendships/rivalries your legion has with any of the others
Friendly rivals with salamanders, white scars, BA and SOH. On good terms with iron warriors and Imperial fists. Appalled by the world eaters and night lord tactics of brutality. Good friends with alpha legion. Pissed off gulliman by calling his tactics "Stiffer than his rod over his ego", earned praise from everyone for that.
>Describe some of your legion's most memorable victories/defeats
Victoies: Took an entire star system in less than a year with a single grand company (use of shock and awe tactics)
Defeats: Constantly fucked by enemy fortifications after massive fiasco where the iron warriors had to bail our asses out of the fire. We now nuke it from orbit.

The legion gets on well with the space wolves, drinking buddies and the like, sandstorms still agree with the ideals of mateship, but those emperors children blokes are prissy bastards in our opinion.
>Describe some of your legion's most memorable victories/defeats

well this one time there was a bunch of those Tyranid blighters causing some trouble on the planet, we'd originally detached a small assault force, believing the reports of genestealer activity to be complete bogus, but by the time we realized our mistake, rippers were flooding through the walls, our assault blokes made us proud though, holding their position with naught but hand flamers and chainswords, some even say that Captain Rudd took on a carnifex with nothing but lightning claws. we lost the planet, but a bloody lot more people were evacuated than we would've estimated. we bought a free round of drinks back home, in memory of the mates we lost.

>Leman Russ has been told that you and your legion are going to Chaos. Now his fleet is in your home planet's orbit. What do?

well first i tell the bastards they can shove their faulty noses up their asses, because if they're smellin Chaos on Ayers IIIX then they need a serious beating, then if they still bloody insist, we defend our planet till our dying breath, i heard those buggers cant deal well with heat anyway, they can keep to the mountains, they wont even see the bloody giant poision birds coming hah!.
