Chapter Background Within the community, we have a unique Space Marine Chapter complete with its own background and lore. This encourages community members to Role-Play more and provides a sort of backstory to their 40k character. The Mad Nomads Chapter started off as a Death Company in the Blood Angels. But as time passed, it became founded as a standalone chapter to which condemned or dishonoured Astartes from all over the Imperium were sent to. It is in this Chapter that their hopes of ever regaining their lost honour lies. If not, the stains of their tainted honour will be washed clean with blood upon their death, as they die in service to the Emperor. The Chapter is usually tasked with missions of insurmountable odds that are imperative to the survival of the Imperium and its people. Missions undertaken by the Chapter are extremely dangerous and a survival rate of zero is almost always expected. In dire times, brave officers from other chapters would volunteer to spearhead missions that they very well know may be their last. The Mad Nomads are the opposite of the Deathwatch. No glorification. No Ceremonies or Songs. Just the mission; and Death. They are the unsung heroes of the galaxy. A ragtag group of nomads whose sole purpose is to fulfill the objectives of such impossible missions in hopes of regaining their honour. They know that the road to redemption for them, begins and ends with a glorious death on the battlefield.
