29113923 No.29113923 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

So, i was on here a few weeks ago talking about re-introducing Beastmen back into 40K. I said that this pic was rather cool and asked about the whole "Beastmen and Gene Seeds" and i was told they don't mix. Someone else then suggested i make my own Beastmen Space Marines Chapter.

So, i did the unthinkable... I took his advice and ran with it...

So, my initial idea was that the chapter (Named "The Emperors Flock") was founded by a Beastman claiming to be a Primarch. Apart from all of the evidence that says his claim is bullshit, there are two pieces of evidence that suggest there may be some form of truth to his claim.

1) He is an Astartes, he has a gene seed. Something that Beastmen are incapable of being implanted with.
2) He knew the exact location of a cache of equipment from one of the lost Legions (Including an old Apocalypse-Class Battleship.)

2 is of course circumstantial evidence, but 1 is very perplexing. Something that the Inquisition is VERY curious to dissect him to find out about.

>> No.29113931

This "Primarch" by the name of Kolmor Prental, came to one of the outer-most edges of the Imperium to a Refugee planet for the Beastmen and has rallied a LOT of the planets inhabitants to him in order to make them into a force to fight for the Emperor and show that the Beastmen are just as worthy of the Emperor's love and affection as the rest of Humanity, that just because they are not fully human, does not make them worth any less than them.

The Emperor's Flock is now raiding the local area, twatting the local cults and Ork rabbles. This is the reason why the Inquisition hasn't launched their usual response to upstarts like this.

1) They are unwilling to launch an Exterminatus, because they don't want to Vaporize Kolmor, because then they can't dissect him.
2) Due to the equipment they have, they are capable of putting up quite a resistance, so they will need to divert too many troops, that could go to much better use elsewhere, to perform a successful land invasion.
3) This movement is not very well known outside of the immediate area, so there is no threat of word of his blaspheme spreading, and currently, all they are doing is dealing with small problems that the Imperium doesn't have the troops to spare to deal with.

Essentially, he isn't high on their list of priorities, and taking him out is more trouble than it's worth.

So, before everyone starts saying "Awww... Snowflake..." i want to make something very much clear, his status as a Primarch is NOT his main character trait... and none of his followers think he even is a Primarch, they just see him as a man who is spreading a message that they can get behind, someone that genuinely cares about them and wants to get them the rights that they deserve, whether he is a Primarch or not is inconsequential, they would follow him even if he admitted that he wasn't.

>> No.29113944

>>29113931
And no, they aren't all Beastmen Astartes, Kolmor is the only Astartes among them, the rest are just normal beastmen wearing Power Armour.

This might sound like a stupid backstory, but really look the world today, how many people come forward claiming to be Jesus? how many people have stated that they are Anastasia Romanov? Or the Lindbergh Baby? I imagine that "lost Primarchs" come forward a lot, they are just "taken care of" quickly.

So, apart from the token "Snowflake" remarks, what does /tg/ think of this?

You should make some more evidence that he's not a Primarch, and maybe have some back-up stories for what he is.

I.E. He's a Dark Eldar experiment of a Space Marine, maybe the "chapter" has ties to the Comorraugh. That would explain just about everything. He's just an obvious Daemon of some sort, a mutated Space Marine with a messiah complex.

Maybe the Inquisition keeps trying to send fleets down there, but for some reason the paperwork gets "lost," making some think that perhaps he's some sort of Mechanicus or Biologis experiment. Perhaps Hereticus is trying to kill him but Xenos is actively fighting them to get ahold of his heretical Gene-Seed for whatever reason.

More details, in other words, might actually help with this. Instead of just "He MIGHT bea Primarch" put in "He might be a Primarch, he might be crazy, he might be a Daemon, he might be an Experiment..." and have alternate, reasonable explanations for this insanity.

That kinda defeats the point of the character, i want to leave his backstory a mystery, if i give him a backstory, i draw focus to his Primarch claim, which is something i don't want to do.

I am answering the question of "Is he a Primarch?" with "The answer is inconsequential." I think of it as the suitcase from Pulpfiction, the answer i give as to why he makes this claim will NEVER be as good as the answer other people come up with themselves.

Although i do like the idea of the whole idea of his troops having a "He might be a Primarch, he might be a crazy person, he might be an experiment that went horribly wrong (or right, depending on how you look at it) But so long as he is saying things that make sense, and fighting for my best interests, i will follow him to the ends of the universe" attitude towards him.

It just doesn't seem compelling. I assume you'd be runnin them as counts as marines, but you claimed the beast men weren't Astartes. How could they have Astartes stats? So you'd have to change the numbers a bit to accommodate, and suddenly running them as counts as becomes really problematic. I know you don't want to hear this, but it really is snowflake as hell.

About the claims of Jesus and Anastasia: you're assuming 40k works on current world logic. Those people have no evidence to support their claims. Your prim arch allegedly is definitely Astartes, so that's not the same at all of these current baseless claims. Plus in 40k, he'd immediately be accused of being a heretic (claiming to be one of the emperors own), a mutant (impure gene stock), or a daemon. Or all three. There's just too many holes.

But why the fuck should you care what anyone thinks? Just build them and play them how you want to. It's your plastic dudes men.

Anyone anywhere that's versed in imperial creed knows to fear and loathe the mutant.
This dude be a mutant.
He is to be feared and loathed.

Even assuming this little backwater planet is isolated and maybe had been severed from imperial creed for the thousands of years it would take for the entire population of a planet to devolve into beastmen, in that time the taint that changed them would have turned the planet and it's inhabitants to chaos, whether they themselves are aware or not. And where the hell do they get such mountains of astartes power armour that is unuseable by anything without a black carapace? That thing that only marines can have due to gene wackiness and compatibility? The inquisition could have simply sent in the legions of militant ordos that they control to extract this guybeast and then scorched the planet.

There are gargantuan holes throughout this if you want to fit in even rogue trader era fluff. It's a neat conversion idea but anything beyond "chaos did it" simply doesnt fit without proper reasoning. We all want to be original but if you're going to cast down tenements of thirty-odd years of fluff you might as well just....I don't know, ignore me?

Sorry OP. These people have a point. It's Sue as hell, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but do not try to fool yourself into thinking that there is any room for this kind of possibility. Beastmen are either mutant, or chaos. It's the only way they'd fit into the universe.

I don't know why you're asking for advice when you're clearly ignoring all the people handing you legitimate criticism. Your concept is great for a conversion army, a neat visual gimmick, but flies in the face of the "acceptable" fiction of the universe. But do what you want, as long as the other people you play against don't mind, it shouldn't matter.

Although, since you're most likely going to ignore those points or respond in a passive aggressive fashion due to what I assume are past experiences that were probably not very polite, you might as well go all out. Maybe tyranid mounts? Looted vehicle rules from the Ork codex? Those are about as 'canonically' acceptable as what you described.

Seriously, regardless of how boring you think it'd be, beastmen in both fantasy and old 40k are just that, chaos mutations. Doesn't fucking matter if that's scientifically interesting, the machine cult is just as adamant at burning the mutant. They consider the flesh weak because it does shit like that. Unless you're implying that the imperium believes that this little convent of mutant is as important as a part of the imperium of man that handles all of their technology. The shit that is the glue of their society.

First off, you mean figurative. Please keep in mind that words mean things.

Second, they are definitely not daemons.

Third, they're pretty stable things (goaty heads, they're not random ice cream flavors of crazy) and thus can be classified as abhumans.

Fourth, goat headed space marines are fucking retarded and imperials would probably kill beast men regardless. But they're definitely not literal chaos cultists and daemons.

OP, it may be boring to you but this is the reality, a comparison between the Inquisition tolerating the AdMech, who the Imperium literally cannot survive without and a group of beastmen with one ship is more than a bit of a stretch.

On top of that, there's the Primarch claim, not only is is snowflake but this alone would be cause for an assassin or an Ecclesiarch to throw a faith fit and have lots of angry women with flamethrowers burning your shit to the ground.

A man leading a band of chaos warped monsters claiming to be of the same stock as, say, Sanguinius, a beloved hero of the Imperium will not only gain the ire of any Imperial institution but also the people of the Imperium.

Let's assume all three factions capable of holding back the Inquisition know about them.

Firstly, the Officio Assasinorum won't care.

Secondly, the Adeptus Mechanicus won't care. The flesh is weak, and these mutants are proof of that.

Thirdly, the High Lords of Terra would only care about removing them. A group of mutants formed into an army? Stamp that shit out. They've signed the death warrants of dozens of Space Marine chapters, why should they care about a small group of Beastmen?

This would be fine without your Primarch claim, however you are completely missing the size of this claim because you want to shoehorn it in, even though it's the only thing stopping this being a somewhat workable idea.

Claiming to be a Primarch is not a small thing, not on any conceivable level.

If a tiny country like Lichtenstein claimed to have a Nuke, do you think the western powers of this world would ignore it because it's held by a group more likely to drop it on their enemies?

Sure, the Imperium has big problems, Tyranids and Daemons etc. Your "Primarch" is going to be the subject of a lot of interest after all, the assistance of a Primarch's mind in the planning of apocalyptic wars can and has turned them around. There's going to be radical elements wanting to at least abduct this guy and put him in charge of something anyone cares about. That's being optimistic.

He's going to have Chaos devotees, marines and cultists, flocking to him for a chance to hold aloft his broken corpse, declare him weak and enslave his horde.

As you've said, this is a small thing. it won't require "SO MANY" resources to stamp out in a single day. Hell, you'd even get private armies and Rogue Traders wanting a piece of this "Primarch" just to prove their worth.

It doesn't work, drop this detail and we'll have something to work with, there are a billion other mysterious claims he can make without being "boring". You don't have to hit the Primarch chord that a million other people have tried and screwed before you.

Lots of things change in 40,000 years... Actually, in the fluff i am making, i'm going to say that the Shamans are desperately trying to hold onto the old ways, and Kolmor is trying to satisfy everyone. Trying to mold it around the Imperiums Doctorine.

Anyway, i decided to read over the RP and i have come up with a way to satisfy the Inquisition problem, in a way that is canon friendly, kinda bullshit canon, but still canon.

Some members of the Inquisition are a lot more lax on the whole "Abhumans and Xeno's are morally wrong" part of Imperium doctrine, as we know, they have opened communications with the Eldar, the Tau, some have even hired Orks and Kroot to do some dirty work. Well, Viqtor Remly is one such Inquisitor...

I can't really go into further detail without completely ruining the idea of Kolmor's character (Inb4 "too late").

What i get annoyed at is people claiming "Your idea is not canon friendly." When, lets face it, lots of official canon is not canon friendly. I'm just trying to build on a part of canon that is ripe for expanding upon, but has been, for the most part, ignored.

Difference is that you're trying to do things that have happened before in canon that has led to assassinations, exterminatus, imperial invasions, and the like. Yes stuff like this could and has happened but our criticisms have been what the ends to these always are. One radical inquisitor might stop these guys from being wiped for a few decades if that, inquisitors have been known to keep abhumans and mutant and xenos in their retinues. But they are the #2 division next to the Officio Assassinorium, and are able to take a dump on any and all rules and factions within the imperium, including themselves.
And now you've done a 180 on the topic of their leader being possibly a PRIMARCH that now nobody believes. And yet you still fail to deal with the more glaring issues of where they got hundreds of suits of power armour, let alone astartes power armour, got it to work on those without geneseed, kept such a wicked stash out of the hands of the mechanicus, all that.
The mechanicus allowed a chapter with ten thousand years lf glorious, flawless service to fall fo chaos over a single artifact. What makes you think that they wouldn't bring their might and interest to bear in the form of a legion of skitarii simply to take that shit from them?

1) Where they got their equipment was covered in the first post, one of the things that supported his claim that he was a lost primarch

>>2) He knew the exact location of a cache of equipment from one of the lost Legions (Including an old Apocalypse-Class Battleship.)
And again, canon states that all records to do with the Lost Primarchs and Legions were destroyed, it stands to reason that the locations of some of their storehouses would have been lost with that information, which is why the Mechanicus didn't know about it, and lends credence to the idea that he might be one of the lost Primarch's.

2) I didn't do a 180 on the idea that he's a primarch, i expanded on it. Turned him into more of a Joan of Arc type figure, I imagine a lot of the French scoffed at her when she said that she had been sent by god, but they still followed her because she stood for what they believed in, in the end, it didn't matter, she did what she set out to do, regardless of who sent her. The Beastmen were downtrodden, sent to live on a planet barely capable of supporting them, and then he appeared. He could have made any claim in the world as to who he was supposed to be, but what mattered was that he claimed that he could give them a better life, and that's what he did.

Did the french believe Joan was sent by god? Probably not. Do the Beastmen believe he is a Primarch? Probably not.

3) How did they get the armour to work for them...? Ok, well, i never said i had all the answers, which is why i came here

4) I never said that they had absolutely no problem whatsoever from the other parts of the Imperium, just that they were in a position that the Imperium was unwilling to simply send in the troops and fuck them back to the stone age.

I just told you, a single magos hearing that there is a perfectly intact 30th century battleship, sitting out on the eastern fringe, in the hands of radical abhumans and mutants, means that he would come looking.
The only battleships that would be that age are in Terra's own fleet, and those of the first and second founding Space Marine chapters.

This is not only an affront to the emperor that abhumans and mutants hold a holy relic, but an affront to the machine god that they be allowed to keep it for themselves. The high lords and the inquisition would be desperate to find this ship if it is indeed related to something that was supposed to be destroyed millenia past under THE ACTUAL EMPEROR'S EDICT, and the Mechanicus would be desperate to have it purely for the completely unblemished archaeotech.

A space hulk dropping out of the warp is enough to warrant a mechanicus explorator vessel and often an entire chapter of space marines for simply the chance at some archaeotech.

I like it and I think it generally makes sense.

As for the reasons not to kill them immediately that people are bitching about:

1 Admech wants to figure out how the fuck a beastman became a spess mahreen, as mentioned before.

2 Admech doesn't want all that wonderful Pre-Hersey tech going to waste.

3 They're in the ass end of nowhere and are actually pacifying the sector. Perhaps they're even going on crusade? (Which would have the added benefit of moving them out of the way.)

4 They're loyal soldiers of the Emprah and groups are considering the propaganda value on Abhuman worlds.

5 Alpha Legion is using them to make an army and as such has been running interference
Or
6 An Inquisitor has been using them to make an army and as such has been running interference.
Or
7 They're a senior Magos Biologos' pet project.

way to get into beastmen in 40k.. get into beastmen in Fantasy play them for a year see if you like them if you don't convert them with lazguns and new bases now you can play 40k.. That was and is and how you should play these cross over races.

starting out with conversions or 3rd party models is dumb you should understand the history of why these races exist in the first place it was all players with large collections wanting to switch from fantasy to 40k.. so you should do what they did or just fuck off and play a normal 40k army

Don't care what haters say, but I think this is a fantastic idea.

I'm curious about the tactics they use. Will they be like regular SM and go tactical and all that shit OR will they be more like beastmen and horde the shit out of enemies?

Don't lie, the idea isn't all that great, as others have proven, this idea is full of holes.

Canonically, their tactics start off trying to be tactical and follow the Codex's teachings... But they do fall back on the old ways very quickly.

>Don't lie, the idea isn't all that great,

By space marine standards it is.

Seriously, the typical original content space marine chapter is this.

Chapter Name: The Emperor's Angels
Chapter Behavior: Very zealous and pious, they differ from other space marines in that they worship the Emperor as a God.
Chapter Enemies: Heretics, xenos, and daemons.
Chapter Allies: Sisters of battle, inquisition, imperial guard.
Chapter Tactics: The Emperor's Angels believe in striking with FURIOUS VENGEANCE, using strategies including drop pods, assault troops, and devastators.

I have seen at least 10 "this is my homebrew astartes chapter" threads that boiled down to this.

Makes sense. With the Space Wolves, it was Fenris's colonists that had been genetically engineered with wolf DNA to better survive on Fenris. The mutated colonists turned into the Fenris wolves, but the managed to stabilize their DNA. The Fenris mutation comes back in certain Astartes recruits, becoming the cursed Wolfen.

It's possible that this Chapter's mutation was caused by recruiting from a poisoned recruiting pool, rife with latent mutant DNA that becomes active in some individuals during the gene-seed implantation.

These mutants can be recruited into a Death Company, used as seconded auxiliaries with a similar function to Scouts, or, extra heretically, integrated into the chapter's regular marines.

Nice idea OP
I also thought about bringing beastmen to 40k, but as an IG army.
>Basically, the IG went to a primeval world, gathered the herd, gave them equipment, and sent them to war.
>Turns out these beastmen are more cunning, and have an innate talent to warfare

will require a lot of bitz and effort to build it tough.

Well, i did some homework and found the perfect ship for this, a Lunar Cruiser.

http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Lunar_Class_Cruiser#.UsAJifRdUkc

It's one of the simpler ships of the Imperium, so the AdMechs wouldn't go completely out of there way for it, because the technology to build them is still very much there. It was also a mainstay of the Great Crusade, so there was a lot of them. And its small enough to not be noticed, as well as having the firepower to deal with the odd Freeboota's that try and pick a fight.

Or make him a renegade Word Bearer to keep the religious aspect of it. IE One that stayed true to worship of the Emperor, but the corruption of his spess buddehs and the warp spawn ate away at his body.

I drew up some designs for Kolmor's weapon choices and Wargear.

Great Emperor’s Crook (Thunder Hammer, his personal hammer, a gigantic hammer that most Marines have trouble holding in two hands, it is said that a strike from this is the closest any Heretic will ever get to feeling the power of a true god.)
Eye of the Shephard (Power Force Sword, Though Kolmor doesn’t appear to have any Psyker ability, he has shown his ability to wield this sword as well as any Grey Knight. The blade was created with the instructions “I want Heretics to realize in their last moments that there is only one true God, and as the life drains from them, to stare into his all-seeing eyes and beg for forgiveness… And be snuffed by their holy might.”)
The Kneeling Mountain (Power Maul, An old saying states that “Mountains bow to nobody.” This weapon begs to differ.)
His Breath (Heavy Flamer, The holy flames spewed from this weapon is supposed to be the physically manifested Anger that the Emperor feels towards his enemies.)
Holy Words (Assault Cannon, each round from this cannon rips through heretics as the holy scriptures rips through their corrupted philosophy.)
Wrist-mounted Bolt gun.
Sanctity of of the Beast (Iron Halo)
Terminator Armour/Artificer Armour

>(If Kolmor leaves the battlefield as a Casualty, all Emperor's Flock must take a leadership test. If passed, then they are allowed to immediately charge. then all enemy units within 6" have to take a leadership test. All Emperor's Flock units then gain Preferred Enemy on the faction that killed Kolmor.)
>Essentially, if the enemy kill him, then all your dudes either get scared and run, or really fuckin' pissed and charge, then the enemy either shit their pants and run, or stand and fight. And of course, your guys gain a deep hatred of that enemy. It makes Kolmor a wild card, killing him will either completely fuck your game, or completely fuck theirs...

You know, there's a reason people would joke about taking an ethereal on your opponents points, because it was that much of a handicap.

>>29147595 is right, do another one of the Legions, I, personally, think that Thousand Sons would be the perfect way to go.

The Thousand Sons had a lot of Psykers, so they probably had a load of Chaplains to balance this, plus they were always loyal to the Emperor, it was Russ being a Dickbag that forced them to go Traitor.

I think i read somewhere that the Loyalist that weren't slaughtered during the culling, split off and founded the Blood Ravens... Which is the whole "Massive Secret" that could bring down the whole chapter.
