Hello all you 40k lovers out there, this is my second thread, the first one i ruined.
This will be about my planned home-brew chapter, The Children of the Sun.

I know what the combat doctrine going to be:
Burn the heretic! Burn the xenos! Burn the traitor! In fact, burn anything that gets in our way!



Any ideas for my chapter master? Names, armour, weapons, how to customise him better?

I have merged the posts together for you to make it easier for other members to read.

Greetings, sounds like an interesting project


For the names, perhaps deciding a theme first may be of use?
Arthurian Knights, Romans, Greeks etc would give you a "type" of name to use and make searching a touch easier

Give the tactical marines a torrent flamer for 10-15 points each. 1 for 5 man, 2 for 10 man.

Perhaps an armor that sets its attackers on fire. (Ruleswise it could put a soul blaze counter on any unit that hit a model in said armor) So and so's infernal armor of whatever.

Swords that cause soul blaze.

You could have a giant flame based cannon with a profile like: Template S5 AP4 Torrent, Heavy 3, Soul Blaze

Warlord Trait that allows the Warlord to unleash his burning fury once per game. All models within 3" take a S4 AP5 hit with the ignores cover special rule.

A special rule for vehicles that causes Soul Blaze whenever they Tank Shock a non vehicle unit.

A special power for librarians that actually allows a unit to have more than one Soul Blaze counter on it at a time. Could be synergistic with some of the other abilities.

Give Snipers incendiary ammo that gives their rifles the Soul Blaze rule.


Sorry there's no fluff ideas there. I mostly just love comin up with new rules.

I like the idea of having a unique unit. E.g. The black Templars have their crusade squads and the blood angels have the sanguinary guard and death company. Anyone got any ideas?

The Torrid Ones

The Torrid Ones burn with such fiery vigor that the heat of their conviction becomes manifest

WS4 BS4 S4 T4 W1 I4 A2 Ld9 Sv3+

Wargear:
Standard stuff

Special Rules:
Righteous Conflagration- The Torrid Ones burn with such vehemence that the very air around them crackles with the heat. Whenever a unit of Torrid Ones launches a successful assault they have the Hammer of Wrath special rule. These Hammer of Wrath attacks reroll to wound.

Furthermore, due to the mirage caused by such caustic temperatures, the Torrid Ones have a 5+ invulnerable save against all Shooting attacks.


Scorching Blades- The swords of the Torrid Ones are designed to channel the intense heat of their wielders into viscious red-hot instruments of death. The close combat weapons of Torrid Ones are AP1.

I think they would be good, maybe jetpacks and some kind of special pistol.
Not a fan of the torrid ones, maybe a different name?

I could use the sanguinary guard, but upgrade the angelus boltguns with incindinery ammo and paint the swords red and add plenty more robes.

I might also combine it with the mark v assault squad for a relic look and cool jump packs, but I will add the wings to the back still.
