    Adeptus Astartes Third-Founding Crusade Chapter

    The Iron Angels are a secretive Chapter that have no clear Progenitor. They use the Chapter Organization, strategies, but have allied themselves with the Adeptus Mechanicus, using bionics similar to those of the Iron Hands. The reason being is that they are a doomed Chapter.

    The Iron Angels lost the knowledge to creating new Black Carapaces, and therefore, the ability to replace their casualties, as they are cut off from other Chapter's support & Holy Terra. Therefore, the Iron Angels will fight to the end, in any manner possible.

    All Iron Angels Space Marines are precious to the last Battle Company, so they use bionics to replace lost limbs & organs and entomb the more fatally wounded in the Dreadnought Sarcophagus. All in the name of the Emperor, so they may give every breathe they have left to the fight for the Imperium.

    In the Battle Company, which consists in total 200 Marines, Apothecaries and Techmarines are valued above all in the Chapter's few ranks. They are undeniably crucial to the upkeep and welfare of the last few Space Marines.

    The Chapter Master of the Iron Angels is Obliteratus Rex, known for his pitch black Techmarine armor and his obliterating attacks on the enemy. He wields the legendary Ragnarok Hammer, a master-crafted Thunder Hammer that was said to be crafted with a grav generator. Whenever he strikes a foe, the very being is sucked in on itself, slaughtering the unfortunate foe in a grisly spray of gore.


    IA Tactical Marine.jpg
    The Tactical Marines of the Iron Angels wear full black body armor, as a representation of the doom that will eventually destroy the Chapter. Squad Sergeants will have red helmets & grey robes.

    Assault & Devastator Marines of all kinds will following the same pattern, except Assault Marines have Yellow Helmets, and Devastator Marines have blue Helmets.

    IA Veteran.jpg
    Veterans are the most valued members of the Chapter. Each wear a white helmet and both arms will be silver (if they have already been replaced with bionics. If so, they will still be silver.) Vanguard & Sternguard Veterans will display yellow or blue stripes on their helmet, while Sergeants wear red stripes, on the crest of their helmets.

    The Loyal Hands were founded during the 39th Millennium due to the Emperor’s spirit predicting a future threat in the Stauvis system. The Loyal Hands are a successor chapter to the Ultramarines, their gene-seed remained pure from their progenitors, and they continue to work closely with the Ultramarines and share their traditions. Their mindset involves cleansing and purifying everything in sight, often shouting “Suffer not the impure!” or “By Holy strength, you shall be cleansed!” Their original Chapter Master and Master of Sanctity, Maccaebus Willhael, is revered and remembered for leading the first crusade of the Loyal Hands against the rebels of Stauvis, now the homeworld of the Loyal Hands.

    Maccaebus Willhael died in combat while fighting against a Chaos-aligned Traitor Legion alongside the Aurora Chapter. The Aurora Chapter’s Chapter Master refused to continue pursuing the enemy into a canyon, seeing that his tanks would be surrounded and vulnerable. Maccaebus Willhael did not wait for a secondary plan of attack, and personally led his forces into the canyon, where he was promptly surrounded and killed, before the Aurora Chapter moved in to save what was left of their forces.

    Stauvis is a desert hive world, and the Loyal Hands take very little part in governing the planet, mostly using it to recruit. The Chapter is generally too busy on a distant world crushing everything in sight to care about governing a planet full of beggars and abhumans. Most of the planet’s populace doesn’t even know who the God-Emperor is, but as long as the Loyal Hands can take potential neophytes off the street and things remain relatively safe, they don’t care what the civilians of their homeworld believe.

    The Loyal Hands, like their progenitors, treat the Codex Astartes with immense respect. Maccaebus Willhael in particular was known to unquestioningly decapitate anyone - civilian, guardsman, or astartes - who questioned the Codex’s insight or authenticity. The Loyal Hands do make one minor deviation, however: All Chapter Masters must also serve as Master of Sanctity, and all Commanders must also serve as Chaplains.

    The Loyal Hands prefer shock and awe tactics, striking hard and fast with overwhelming force. They are particularly fond of Thunderhawk strikes, their pilots being known for such precision that it is said their infantry can safely take position less than 20 meters from a bombing run, allowing Assault Marines to engage immediately after a strike. Being a Codex-adherent Chapter, they have standard battle formations and ranks. They have ten companies, with ten squads each. They are numerous and fit for battle, and with such a populous homeworld, replacing losses is not usually an issue.

    As their name might suggest, the Loyal Hands revere the God-Emperor above all else, and are champions of purity. Their beliefs can quickly be summed up by “Follow the Codex, destroy all impure enemies of the Emperor, rinse, repeat.” Space Marines in the Loyal Hands Chapter are almost unanimously known for being blunt, direct, and to-the-point. They come off as gruff and uncaring, even by astartes standards.

    Considering the Loyal Hands’ homeworld of Stauvis is riddled with poverty, crime is a large issue. As such, the Loyal Hands maintain close relations with the Adeptus Arbites in order to ensure that their homeworld remains safe for recruiting neophytes while the Chapter is off massacring the Emperor’s enemies. The Loyal Hands also harbor an intense hatred for the Planters of Tzeentch, a Chaos-aligned rebel group that attempts to sow distrust and disruption in the Imperium. This group is responsible for the rebellion on Stauvis that caused the Loyal Hands to be created.

    The Loyal Hands Chapter colors are purple and yellow with black accents. The purple signifies purity, and the yellow signifies strength. Their insignia is a purple fist raised skyward, with an inverted Ultramarine insignia in yellow placed around it. There is little visual difference between Marines specializations other than the symbol on their right shoulder (the Loyal Hands insignia is on their left). Sergeants have yellow helmets with a purple half-stripe instead of the traditional purple.

  7. Greetings, brothers. Im new to this forum and my w40k knowledge may not be as deep as they should to post it, but I waited for a chance to do so for far too long. So, here it is, a description and short backstory of my fanfictional Space Marines:

    Order Name: Warp Stalkers
    Ancestor Chapter: Thusand sons
    Grandmaster: ex-chaplain of lost Thousand sons company, Artemius Sidonis
    Drop right behind the frontline and establish in shortest time multiple small but well protected positions to provide heavy fire, giving the main forces an opportunity to push forward.
    Strength: 500 members, half of them-supressed psykers
    Current base: Sinia, distant planet on the edge of the galaxy, far from meaningfull trading paths and strategic forposts
    Backstory: Shortly before burning of Prospero chaplain Artemius Sidonis had a vision of liegion`s doom, and, tortured by doubt, finally desiced to share his knoledge whith this brothers, and was accused for treason, and jailed, awaiting his scentence. Thouse few who belived him, includeing a dreadnought, brother Lancraft, one of the oldest living space marines, who later said he had the same vision during his hibernation, decided to set him free, steal one of the chapter`s light cruisers and as much of relics and weaponary as possible, to escape their fate, and sliped away in chaos of Space Wolves invasion, which started shortly after. Each and everyone on the board of that ship, which from now on got a new name "Protego", decided to remain loyal to the Imperium of mankind and humanity. However, it was not easy to return into Imperial hierarchy in current circumstances, but, having a gift for tactics and strategy chaplain provided his new wards whith some risky plans on how to do it, and all of them, marines and human personel alike, not having a better options, folowed his lead, and eventually, elected him as a formal leader (despite the fact he never put of his helmet publicly).

    So, they started to wander across the galaxy in this dark times, intercepting SoS messages and distress signals, making secret connections and pushing their agents whenever and wherever possible, gathering useful data, helping imperial forces in many battles. So, after many years of such wandering, chaplain finally decided that its time to rejoin the Imperium they`ve been exiled from by the power of fate they denied. During his journey he encountered some radical opportunist inquisitorial agents, and trough them secretly meet whith some hight ranks of echlesiarchy. They were very interested of having their a SM order whith psykers on their side, however, after long discussion, they made some requirements:
    1) All psykers should be neutralized as such
    2) They will choose a new base for the order
    3) It will be under their direct comand, and couple of regiments of adeptas sororitas under command of lord inquisitor Salva De Galor will enshure that
    4) None of the order`s members is alowed to leave set home world whithout a direct command from Echlesiarchy members from lord inquisitor or higher.
    5) Gene code of the order must be checked and stabilized (Chaplain insisted on partisipating in process, and, eventually, took over a control on research group involved in it)
    6) Chaplain should reveal his face to everyone presenting on this tribunal (and so he did).

    Presenting this requierments to his people he said that he can not order them to folow him this time, and everyone should decide for himself... But none of his people left him in this challenge. Inspired by such loyalty, he made his own version of Rubric spell, which seals a connection of each psycher whith warp, dramatically reduceing his emotions as a sife effect. Despite that, all SMs involved established some kid of connection, makind them understand eachother and act as one even whithout useing emotions or usual communication.

    And so, Grandmaster Artemius Sidonis remained the only active psyker in his new order. But, as he discovered later, effect of his spell reverces when subject contacts whith warp matter from the portal opened by some outside force.

    So, they can`t use any "active damage" or "mass boost" style psychic abilities untill they are in the warp themselves, or contact whith somone who is useing wap matter in, say, casting spells. And when it happens, once sealed psycic force reveals itself in an absolutely overwhelmingly powerful way. However, its hard to train such ability properly, so, each order member whith that power was taken to the warp by former chaplain himself, and trained to use one spell he can handle the best, be it a shield, or a lightning etc. So, order can form something of a collective psyker of absolutely overwhelming power, capable of utterly destroying most powerfull warp users, includeing deamons. And ofc, every chapter of that kind has its own heretical secret that is yet to be discovered... Yeah, I made some kind of fanfic about it.

    Tl;DR: So, its something of an assasin temple made from space marine order, primarely oriented on deamon hunting and heretic purgeing in cooperation whith other imperial forces.

    Fightinc doctrine: Defensive, heavy and meelee weaponary, armored vehicles, and aireal assault. Protecting as many civilians as possible is always an objective in any conflict they involved. "Use everything", includeing non-conventional weapons and forces (includeing xenos) avalible to achive victory whith minimal losses for the Imperium.

    Relations whith some other loyal factions:

    Radical inquisition views Artemius and his order as their favorite, but very specific weapon. Chaplain viewing them as his opportunity to exploit his new status, demanding access to rare and well hidden inquisitorial archives "for his work", for example.

    Local adeptus sororitas prefer to avoid him and all warpstalkers alike, but madame De Galore herself took an order to look after him quite literally, forming some whierd love-hate-buddy relashionships whith Grandmaster, and he sincerely admires her "a miracle to behold"- berzerking-holy-battlerage at every opportunity.

    Local Grand Fabricator of adeptus mechanichus dislikes and oftern openly confronts order and Grandmaster for new technologies he brings from Emperor knows where, being quite suspecious about all that secrecy he made around it, but he is greedy for new stuff too, so he kinda had to cooperate to get his cut of it.

    Puritanian part of an inquisition absolutely hates Artemius, and everyone related to him in any way, waiting for an opportunity to destroy them all, an constantly plotting in that direction.

    Interesting Tidbit

    -in the order Artemius is still being called "Chaplain", outside of the order everyone calls him "Grandmaster".
    -Along whith psychic disciplines, Artemius promotes midical and engineering skills, as well as ideas of nobility and "manners" among his man, but calls every human he talks to "brother" or "sister", to avoid forming arrogant attitude, but some think its a populism.
    -Killing loyal human, especially astartes, considered by the order worst kind of heresy, so they look down on "honor fights" be it between individuals or armies.
    -They never shake hands whith Space Wolves, but won`t refuse to cooperate in battle, given a chance.
    -Order is almost entirely immune to negative and positive morale affecting abilities and factors because thir current state is closest to what Dorn (as I recall) said about Magnuses elite quard: "bieng a living machines" in combat.

    Battle Cry:

    "We are His Shield!"
    "For the Mankind!"

    "For the Emperror`s cause!"
    Space Marine Colors:
    Quartered, dark purple and black, whith polished silver details, kinda like that:

    My current army is completely Primaris Space marines no more peasant marines for me, it’s a white and purple colour scheme sadly I haven’t finished painting yet so I don’t have any pictures. My chapter is a successor chapter of The Dark Angles. My chapters Name is ‘The Frost ‘ as they are specialists at fighting on snowy and icy planets. Lore wise I’m not finished but what I have got for them Is some basics about them, There Home planet (don’t have a name yet) is very icy and snowy, To become a Frost Marine you must walk up a steep slope covers in really slippery ice, some say the most slippery ice in the galaxy, you must climb this very steep ice mountain without slipping once, after that you must fight on this ice Then you must run away from a pack of wolfs (we stole a few packs of wolfs off the space wolves so they hate us) on the steep ice, after all that you are accepted. ‘The Frost’ do not believe or fight for the Emperor, but they are not heratics as they believe in the imperium of man but just think the emperor has had his time and there should be a new one due to this most chapters hated them and ‘The Frost’ would sometimes end up having small skirmishes with other chapters, there biggest rivals were the Blood Angles, The Ultramarines and the space wolves, There Founding chapter the Dark Angles Decided to take action and keep a close eye on ‘The Frost’ Although the beliefs of the Dark Angles and The Frost differed they still fought side by side sometimes and had a somewhat friendly attitude towards each other. The Frost is very itolastionist although they would venture out of there space if they heard the slightest news of a location of Chaos as they were seen as the worst things to ever set foot in the galaxy as they hated Heratics more than they hated any other Xenos, to kill a chaos marine is seen as the greatest honour amoungts The Frost. There war dry is “For The Imperium we fight, Make them Freeze Brothers!” Still work in progress. Any way that’s it I also got a Farsight Enclave army (Tau) but that’s just a allreasy built lore army with farsight and stuff.

    I would love to hear about any Army’s you have and Pictures of The Frost coming soon
