PostSubject: What chapter..?   Wed Jan 25 2012, 18:50

I am having some plans of starting a smaller Space Marine army, but I cannot decide what chapter of these two I want most. Perhaps you could help me a little? First of all, the Dornian Heresy is , I quote, "an alternate timeline in which Warmaster Horus was able to cast off the daemonic influences that sought to possess him, and where the Ruinous Powers were instead forced to corrupt Rogal Dorn to overthrow the Emperor. The Dornian Heresy is the tale of an alternate universe where choices, sometimes large, sometimes small, have led to the familiar primarchs and legions meeting very different fates. For instance, how different might things have turned out if Sanguinius had instead been found and raised by the mutant tribes of Baal, or if Angron’s first meeting with the Emperor had been as an honourable ally against the slavers at Fedan Mhor? All this and more is in the first issue of the Legio Imprint." Very good reading indeed, make a search for it.

So I thought about either making World Eaters as they would have been (probably using the Space Wolves Codex as they have CCW-armed troops).

My other idea is a chapter I have made up myself, the Dragon Guard, a successor chapter of the Salamanders. They look like this (painted one for a Space Marine Conclave):



and are slightly based on ancient chinese history, in some ways. Their chapter master is named Zhaoren (would use Vulkan He'stan for him), but otherwise there is not much background made up so far.

I personally like both ideas... but I certainly cannot afford making two new armies...

Dang! I was hoping Tyranids followed the Pokemon naming idea. A big Carnifex running around just yelling "Carnifex! Carni-Carnifex!" followed by a squad of termagants all saying "Termagant" to each other.

Why be tied wholly to someone else's vision? Go with the DIY Salamander successor!
