Justcar Posted January 1, 2013 Share Posted January 1, 2013 I have a new idea for a chapter. The ideas that I have are as follows: Fleet based chapter Use codex tactics and battle doctrine, but do not use codex organization. Instead, they are organized into companies that have their own fleet and are responsible for their own recruitment and resupply. Each company is spread far and wide. The chapter only rarely fights as one. Each company has its own scouts and veterans. Furthermore, each company's battle brothers are able to fill the roll of tactical, assault, or devastator marine as needed. They stick to what they feel is the spirit of the codex and add to it as needed. As such, the believe that a chapters forces need to be flexible and capable of carrying out any mission. Their organization is a product of their fleet based nature and views about the codex and flexibility. This has, however, earned them the disapproval of more strict chapters. They have good relationships with the inquisition and mechanicum. The first, because they would rather be on the inquisition's good side. The second, because they need weapons and they don't have a home base. They believe in taking the fight to the emperor's enemies and hunting them down. Because it can sometimes be difficult to resupply while they're in a more remote part of the galaxy, most brothers in the chapter train as artificers. The chapter recruits when they reach a suitable planet. They host a series of trials and challenges that the populous competes in. Those who pass are adopted into the chapter. Failed aspirants are allowed to serve the chapter as auxilliaries and are trained by the chapter as well. They are often used as liaisons and temporary commanders when the chapter allies with the imperial guard or planetary defense forces. If the chapter passes a troubled world or a world of doubtable loyalty, the commander will often unleash the chapter's scouts and auxilliaries to hunt heretics. The chapter also gladly lends scouts to inquisitors as part of their training. How does this sound? I am also wondering which gene seed I should choose: Ultramarines: obviously Imperial fists: fleet based Raven guard: usage of stealth and covert ops What do you think?
