Alternate Legion - The Scions Hospitalier
Slips posted a topic in + SPECIAL PROJECTS +In conjunction with the Brotherhood of the Lost Project, I've decided to finally put these ideas to written form. Good thing I was in the process of writing this before it all got moved to the special Projects section! The Scions Hospitalier + "None Shall Impede The Emperors Vision For A Perfect Humanity!" http://i.imgur.com/L7eatHt.jpg http://i.imgur.com/6DL2HgT.jpg Fluff: Hidden Content Upon the Ocean World of Iona did the Primarch Pionus' Gestation Capsule Land. Unremarkable in its appearance, beneath the surface, within massive, sprawling Hive Cities did the Human inhabitants of Iona Live with a Single, Artificial Island connecting them to the surface. Created during the Dark Age of Technology and having remained largely unscathed by the events that transpired throughout the rest of the Galaxy. As such, their societies benefited fully from the scientific advancements; though being primarily a Genetic Research World, most of their Technology was made for that purpose, lacking much in terms of warfare equipment. They were not, however, without their own means to protect themselves. While they were under no threat by Xenos -- or even Human -- invaders from beyond, they still had to contend with the local Fauna: Oceanic Predators. Some bred or created by the genesmiths and scientists of Iona, some the result of pure evolution. While the majority of Ionians would never have to venture beyond the walls of their Hive, there were still times when it was required: To repair external damage to the hives, explore old, abandoned hives, research stations, caverns, etc. Mostly due to the inhabitants having long done away with any independent automata instead relying on their refinements to the human structure to perform tasks that would otherwise be impossible. Equipped with Archeotech-Grade Power Armor and Weaponry made for Hard Void -- repurposed for aquatic use -- would these individuals roam the exterior of the Hives performing their duties and slaying Ancient Beasts who predated Human Colonization. The Genesmiths of Iona would, however, never dare alter the human form beyond its standard form. Where Gills and other Aquatic Mutations would have definitely helped, they opted, instead, to make the Lungs more efficient, the eyes more sensitive to low-to-no light vision unaffected by exposure to salt water, the bones and muscle mass more hardy to resist the crushing pressures found at the ocean floor upon which their Hives were built, blood vessels and internal organs capable of resisting rapid pressure changes. These were but a few of the improvements the genesmiths affected upon the human population of Iona over the course of hundreds -- if not thousands -- of generations until these changes were all but natural for the inhabitants of the Water World. The few unique STC's found on Iona only pertained to medical and medical research equipment. While not what the Nascent Imperium and Mechanicum would have been hoping for, they were still invaluable additions. +++ Pionus, luckily enough, would crash land into the water a scant few kilometers away from the sole artificial island present on the planet. Recovered by a Scientist and his Teenage Daughter out on a trip to examine surface based lifeforms and general relaxation, he would then go on to be adopted into their family and enrolling in the Schola Genetica within the Primary Hive at the age of 7 when his Primarch Traits and abilities marked him out as extraordinary. While his family life was without a doubt ordinary, his studies and work at the Genetica were all but. Seemingly blessed with a talent for understanding the craft, he would go on to innovate in nearly ever field of study; the greatest of his achievements being the prolongation of the average Ionian Lifespan from ~100 years to well into and possibly above ~250 Years before the need for Juvenant Treatments. And through his supremacy, his mastery in the field did he rule Iona. And, of all the inhabitants on Iona only one would ever attain his level of mastery: his Adopted Sister Inna (gratz if you get this reference WITHOUT GOOGLING!). A Genius in her own right, while she could never truly match the Primarch in any respect, she still performed leaps and bounds above any other "mortal" and as such was the only true peer to Pionus. Though, Unlike him, she would constantly experiment on herself. Perhaps it was a way for her to bridge the gap between her and Pionus? Ultimately, the Truth is only known to Inna herself, this account can only offer speculation on the subject. +++ It was +++REDACTED PER IMPERIAL EDICT+++ years after having landed on Iona that the Emperor and his accompanying Fleets of Legiones Astartes finally arrived in orbit above the planet. Through no bloody battle was the world brought into compliance, nor was Pionus bested in any feats of greatness by the Emperor. Both Delegations met upon the singular Artificial Island Installation. The Delegation of Iona comprised of Pionus himself, the greatest mind of the planet, Inna his peer, adviser and confidant and top Genesmiths of the various branches of the field were in attendance. Opposite to them was the Emperor, a Small Guard of Custodians with Valdor in attendance and The Legion Master accompanied by 5 Preatorians of the XIXth Legion: The Stygian Phantoms (LOOK THIS TOOK WAY TOO LONG TO COME UP WITH DEAL WITH IT BEING TRANSLATED TO "DARK GHOST" ) All that it took to sway Pionus Santor was the Answering of Two Questions by the Emperor: Who was He and why was he looking for Him? The answers to both would prove sufficient for the Young Primarch, always having known that he was anything but ordinary and being imbued by a greater purpose -- not that he didnt find his work and studies on Iona beneath him. He was then Introduced to the Leaders of the XIXth Legion which, as the Emperor informed him, he would be taking control of and set about bringing human worlds into compliance for the Imperium of Man which Iona would join but maintain liberties few other world would due to its nature as Primarch Homeworld and soon-to-be Legion Homeworld. Now reunited with his Gene-Sons and at the head of the Stygian Phantoms but being of Pragmatic disposition, Pionus saw no reason to undo the current structure or how the Legion Operated. Much like his Genesmithing, he would, overtime slowly improve upon what was present. It would take decades before these changes became apparent but, due to His Nature and the way that these reforms were conducted, no rift was formed between the Terran Pre-Primarch Legionaries and the Ionian Legionaries who would soon swell the Legion in Size; in part due to their already advanced physiques being bolstered by the Astartes Induction Treatments -- the same Gene Therapies Pionus would offer freely to any Terran Legionaire so that no Favoritism or Disparity existed between the two Groups. It is only after Two Decades in Command of the XIXth did Pionus Santor rename the Legion. Gone were the Stygian Phantoms -- The Heraldry of which he awarded and even imposed on Veterans lest their roots be forgotten -- and in their place were the Scions Hospitalier. The Swelling of Legion Numbers can be attributed to their increased average lifespan, being Hardier than the Average Marine and reduced recuperation time for the wounded due to the Legions Growing Specialty in Genetics -- specifically that of an Astartes -- coupled with increased Apothecary numbers all of this in no small part due to Pionus. While the Stygian Phantoms did specialize in Support Ops aiding other Legions in a secondary role during campaigns, they also performed Exfiltration Ops aiding fellow warriors -- be they Mortal or Astartes -- to successfully escape from extreme danger zones. These High Risk missions would take their toll on the Legion with Casualties being most notable vs Orkoid or Age Of Strife-level Human bringing them down to just under 70000 Marines by the time they reunited with their Primarch. Their Numbers would soon reach well over 150000 Marines by the Time of the Heresy. With the advent of the reunion, a marked decrease in casualties was noted and their Exfiltration Ops became more daring and extreme in their nature adopting a "No Man Left Behind" Stance. Another Specialty of theirs that often came into play in a Post-Primarch Discovery environment was their increased specialty and mastery of Combat in 3D Spaces most Notably Hard Void or Oceanic Combat. This was due to the Legions relocation to Iona where, coupled with the nature of the Planet and its Fauna made training in such environments more than adequate. As such, the Legion was Oft employed alongside The Drowned* of the XVIth Legion for both complemented each other in this field and made it night impossible for enemies to claim victories. *It is of Note that, under agreement of both Primarchs of the XVIth and XIXth Legions that a Portion of the Legionnaires of the XVIth would be allowed to train alongside the XIXth upon Iona due to the Unique environments the Planet Possessed. What effect this would have in the Dark Days to come is anyone's Guess. Upon these Specialties did Pionus Build but, so too did he ensure that the Legion was always capable of Executing any form of warfare they would be called upon to persecute. Though not a Specialty of Theirs, a behavior to note was that the XIXth would oft volunteer for missions dealing with Abhumans, Genetic Deviants or other such form of society perverting the basic Human Form, fighting with a Ruthlessness and Vigor unmatched among the Legions even when combat was against Xenos. As such, they were the Legion to Employ when such a Planet was Consigned to Death. This had the consequence of the Scions Hospitalier refusing to fight alongside or even aid Imperial Army and even Auxilia forces that employed Orgyn, Ratlings or other Equivalents of any Kind. Thus was the XIXth Legion Unleashed Upon The Galaxy. END +++ Rules and Characters: Legiones Astartes: Scions Hospitalier -Legiones Astartes:Units and Models with the LA(SH) special rule may always attempt to regroup at normal leadership regardless of casualties sustained. -The Scions Hospitalier: All Models with the LA(SH) special rule gain the Feel No Pain (6+) and Move Through Cover Special Rules. -Magna-Apothecarium: Models Equipped with a Narthecium or an Iona-Pattern Narthecium possessing the LA(SH) special rule permit them and the squads they've joined to re-roll a single failed Feel No Pain roll once per phase.

This modifier increases to -2 once the unit has suffered 25% casualties. Additionally If the unit contains a model with a Narthecium, Iona-Pattern Narthecium, The Saviour or Ultima Narthecium Array they may not add their Initiative score to Sweeping Advance rolls, this replaces the former modifiers to Sweeping Advances rather than being in addition to them. -Loyalty and Purity Above All: Models with the LA(SH) special rule gain the Preferred Enemy (Xenos) special rule as well as Hatred (Traitor Legions) Legion Specific Wargear: Hidden Content -Obscura-Pattern Jump Pack:+ A Special Pattern of Jump Pack produced on Ionas Forge-Moon of Obscura, this type of Jump Pack was void and underwater operable and capable of longer, sustained flight. + The Obscura-Pattern Jump Pack confers the Bulky Special Rule and ignores the negative effects Jump Infantry would normally be subjected to in Zone Mortalis Games where the Hard Void Rules are in play.

The Resulting Metal is of an unmatched Glacial-Blue and the Blades are only allowed to be created by the Greatest of the Legiones Armorium Artificers. It is due to this that the weapon isn't as widespread throughout the Legion being mostly found in the hands of Legion Officers. It has also been used as a Gift presented to the Commanding Officers of exceptional Inter-Legion Operations involving the Scions Hospitalier (CREATIVE LICENCE FOR Y'ALL TO GIVE THEM TO SOME OF YOUR OWN CHARACTERS) + A Character with the LA(SH) special rule with the option to purchase a thunderhammer may, for +40 Points, exchange their Chainsword/Combat Blade and/or Bolt Pistol for a Wave Blade. + A Wave Blade has the following Profile: Range: --, Strength: +2, Ap3, Melee, Specialist Weapon, Rending, Duelist's Edge The Primarch: Hidden Content Pionus Santor 480pts The Healer, The Ocean Walker, The Perfector, The Immovable Object, The Atlantaean WS BS S T W I A LD Sv 7 5 6 7 6 6 4 10 2+ Unit Composition: 1 (Unique) Unit Type: Jump Infantry (Character) Wargear: -The Leviathan:+ A Trident of Unmatched Splendor Created specifically for Pionus by Daer'dd, this Weapon was Presented to the Former at their first meeting, this Weapon would serve him unerringly though innumerable conflicts and the dark times that would soon Follow.

This has the added effect of greatly improving the Primarchs Mobility represented by his classification as Jump Infantry. The Opalescent Ward confers a 2+ Armor Save and a 3+ Invulnerable Save. The Armor also permits Pionus to Ignore the Effects of any Special Rule that would Negatively modify Pionus' Initiative. Confers the Move Through Cover and Relentless Special Rules and reduces the Strength of Weapons Hitting Pionus in the Shooting Phase by -1 to a minimum of 1 unless their Strength Value is 7 or Greater.

Post-Insurrection/Battle of Terra Primarch: Hidden Content Pionus Santor 700pts The Undying, The Everliving Son, The Leviathan Having somehow survived his fateful encounter with his closest Fallen Brother, Morro, the Scions Hospitalier used all their influence and power at their disposal to look for a way to restore their Gene-Father or at least keep him among the living. It is through secret, hidden and means obfuscated beyond all measure that the adepts of a branch of the Mechanicum were able to produce a "Body" for Pionus to inhabit. The Price, however, was the abandonment of his flesh and blood and to transfer his essence, consciousness and ultimately, his soul into the construct that would save him. Whilst the ingenuity and technological mastery of the Mechanicum wrought a body for the Primarch, it was through the combined efforts of the finest artisans of the Iron Bears and Crimson Lions, Niklaas among them, that his new form was bedecked in the finest armor the Imperium has seen short of the Emperor's own Warplate. It was with great chagrin that the unanimous decision was made among the Primarchs closest advisers to go through with the procedure; placing more value on their Primarch being among them and the living than consigning what little spark of life remained in his mortal shell to death.

He otherwise has access to no other Psychic Disciplines or Powers. Silent Scream: Warp Charge 2 24" Nova Power This Power forces all models, friend or foe, within its area of effect to immediately take a Dangerous/Difficult Terrain Test, regardless of special rules that let them ordinarily bypass taking them, that is failed on a roll of a 1 and 2.

Infantry Units with the LA(SH) Special rule and Dreadnoughts part of this Detachment gain Counter-Attack, Hit & Run and Fleet on the Turn they arrive from Deepstrike / Reserves including disembarking from a Transport Vehicle that arrived in the same manner. Phantom Squads taken as part of this Army that numbers 10 Models may charge on the Turn they Arrive from Reserves. Depthstrider Squads taken as part of this Army that numbers 10 Models gain Twin-Linked and Pinning on all their weapons on the Turn they arrive from Reserves, +Limitations: Squads that are capable of having an Apothecary Attached to them must do so. Apothecaries Taken in this manner do not take up an Elite Slot in the Force Organization Chart. Two Primus Medicae Consuls must be taken as Additional Compulsory HQ Selections and be Equipped with an Iona-Pattern Narthecium where applicable. If Taken, Inna Santor counts as A Primus Medicae for the purposes of this limitation. Any Unit/Models without the Deepstrike Special Rule or the Skimmer, Flyer, Jetbike or Jump Infantry type may not be taken unless they are embarked upon a Transport that fulfills the Criteria for being Included. This means that Vehicles such as most Tanks cannot be taken as part of a Detachment using this Rite of War. All units that are part of a Detachment using this Rite of War must start the Game in Reserves. Must take an additional Compulsory Troops Selection. Any C&C welcome no matter how Harsh (ok not that harsh, dont actively try to hurt my feelings )
