  1. +++ WORK IN PROGRESS +++ The Roaring Lions "Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt." - Captain Icarus (Sun Tzu) http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/sm/bpe=002FFF&bpj=002FFF&bp=002FFF&bpc=002FFF&hdt=002FFF&hdm=002FFF&hdl=002FFF&ey=00FF15&er=002FFF&pi=595959&nk=002FFF&ch=002FFF&eg=FFEBA8&sk=FFEBA8&abs=002FFF&bt=002FFF&cod=002FFF&ull=002FFF&lk=FFFFFF&lll=002FFF&lft=002FFF&url=FF0000&rk=000000&lrl=FF0000&rft=FF0000&slt=FFEBA8&sli=FF0000&srt=FFEBA8&sri=002FFF&ula=FF0000&lel=FF0000&lla=FF0000&lw=FF0000&lh=FF0000&ura=002FFF&rel=002FFF&rla=002FFF&rw=002FFF&rh=002FFF&bg=212121&rb=595959&gr=595959&qu=FF0000&wg=true&hs=FFFFFF&laurel=true&chps=CC0000&comi=FFFFFF&slips=CC0000&lkg1=000000&rkg1=FFFFFF&bpr=FAE8B4&cs=FAE8B4&spl1=533B1C&spr1=533B1C&spl2=533B1C&spr2=533B1C&/spacemarine.jpgThe Roaring Lions were formed during the Ultima Founding but missed the Indomitus Campaign entirely. When Guilliman requisitioned the Primaris marines he pulled aside the Roaring Lions and sent them on a special mission in Segmentum Pacificus. This mission was to secure several planets that were vital in supplying the main forces of the Indomitus Fleets. The Roaring Lions did not like being sent on guard duty. They had been training solidly for years and yearned for battle. After they obtained supplies from Mars they left aboard their battle barge Emperor's Teeth before the Indomitus Campaign left Terra with the millions of other reinforcements. Upon entering the system of Stellar they found panic brewing. A large Ork WAAAGH had sprung up in the nearby systems and was threatening the supply line that would be funneling into the Indomitus Campaign. The Roaring Lions sprung into action, using Stellar 4 as a base of operations they helped devise planetary and orbital defenses while sending out several companies to scout and setup defenses as well. Within months the Orks were met in the battle field of night. The Ork fleet was massive and slowly started pushing back the Roaring Lions. It wasn't until the arrival of 6th company and the allies they made with the mechanicus that the Ork push was slowed. Nearly five decades later the chapter is still fighting against the Ork WAAAGH under the command of Warboss Toothnabba of the Bad Moons clan. All intelligence on Toothnabba has shown him to be one of the wealthiest warbosses that the Imperium has ever had to deal with. This wealth has caused a large number of other Ork clans to come to his aid and has caused a significant issue in extinguishing this WAAAGH. Several years into the war the Roaring Lions found that Toothnabba was sending in gretchin to collect teethfrom the dead. It took a significant amount of digging through the bureaucracy, about a decade, of the Imperium to find out that the Orks used teeth as currency and the Roaring Lions decided to implement a new tactic to try and stifle the WAAAGH. They started to collect the teeth of all the Ork casualties after every battle and use them to set traps for the roaming Ork WAAAGH. This was successful for a time and helped dely the Ork WAAGH for about a decade. As in all things, the war evolved over time. Some years are filled with bloody losses and losing ground and others are filled with new heroes and victories thought impossible. What remains is war. The region has been in a consistent state of production and war shaping the populations of the nearby star systems into ideal candidates for implantation. It is this population that has helped sustain the Roaring Lions' ranks over the years and less than 100 of the original 1000 primaris marines are still alive this day. The war is on a knife's edge. One wrong move and it is lost, another and they give themselves another year of survival. Requests for aid have been sent to Terra for the past decade, but the same response is always returned. Silence. The Roaring Lions have setup recruiting posts on a number of worlds in Segmentum Pacificus and continue to keep their numbers strong and their marines ready for the fight, but as of now whispers of lost hope are starting to spread through the under hives. This has led to a new threat arising within the region. Chaos. **Anything in this post can change. I'm just writing down ideas as they come to me. Some may work, others may not work.

  2. I have been wanting to build an Accipiters army since I first saw them years ago and have finally got down to it. Since they have no official lore on them besides a profile of a marine, I have come up with my own. Quick background(any advice on any of this would be appreciated. Trying to make it sound as close to official style lore as possible) 1.Raven Guard successor. When they were founded or a mystery of when, I have not decided on yet. 2.They were created as a chapter to hunt down traitor astartes. With Corax's hatred of the traitors, plus the fact they are named Accipiters which is the largest bird of prey family with many in it feeding on birds. It made sense for them to go after their own. Since they are loyalists that would mean killing traitor marines. The chapter will of course fight other enemies of the Imperium but see it as almost a waste of time. 3. Fleet based chapter. This is so they can hunt down traitors at all times and work as a full chapter in almost all engagements. 4. The chapter was in protracted void conflict with chaos forces when the Cicatrix Maledictum split the Imperium in two. Unfortunately the entire chapter was close to the tear and 90% of the chapters ships were destroyed or vanished in an instant. (Maybe some of the chapter could exit the warp later on and this gives me modeling opportunities.) 5.After crossing paths with Guillimans Indomitus Crusade they were brought back to full strength with Primaris. 6. Highest ranking first born marine was Forgemaster Bryus who decided to cross the Rubicon Primaris and what was left of the firstborn did as well. Bryus is chapter master. 7.Highly aggressive chapter that prefers close range combat which is achieved through transport. They utilise Raven Guard style combat tactics still but not to such a high degree. Subtly, precision, aggression are the three combat tenets they follow for almost all situations. Use camouflage paint on units when it makes sense too. Ok so thats the basics. I will add things as I go or change things if anyone has good ideas. I'm pondering what to do about apothecaries, techmarines, chaplains, etc color schemes. Maybe pick one dark color to paint them all like black and do shoulder pads accipiter blue? paint on the upper half that is normally blue the color that unit would be and do shoulder pad blue? paint them as normal? I am also kicking around the idea of the companies being very specialized towards one type of combat after the 4th company. (5th company being a stealth based company, 6th be a strictly close combat based company, etc) Since they will almost always be fighting as a full chapter this could work well. 1st to 4th would be well rounded style companies. Or is that redundant because of how space marine companies are already designed? Anyway here is some pics of what I've got done so far. The Accipiter blue shows up darker then it is in person. I changed backgrounds and light but it didn't seem to help. I think its my phone I have not painted the company number in roman numeral on the left knee pad because I can not get it to look good through out. So instead I painted the company color. Maybe the chapter changed that way of doing things after the primaris inclusion. The right knee pad is red with the symbol for 1st. This is 1st squad. The dust through out the models is gonna be toned down in areas when I get a chance. Come up with markings for ranking, original firstborn status, unit type, etc. Will be Raven guard symbols from legion days. Sergeant has the symbol for tactical on his tilting shield and a veteran marking on the powerfist. All characters will have tilting shields with rankings on them. Still working on the Gladiator. Need to lighten the turret and containers blue. Also weathering and base is not done. This was my test model for the chapter. Need to change the base to fit with the rest. More to come soon. Working on building a few characters and a Infiltrator unit that will be dust tan color similar to the bases with blacked out metals. Cheers Primarch83
