Your 100% correct, he's a troll and attempting to emulate his namesake. Unlike the majority who indulge his namesake though, I have no issue being blunt and calling him out rather than holding back and playing nice to maintain face.

Lives up to his namesake at least.

darkreever So yeah, guess having any faith in your ability to not be more than a clown is a waste.

When were they founded? What millenium/which founding? Where they founded as a response to a significant incursion? Were they part of another chapter where there was a schism in beliefs?

Your attempt at skirting an answer is as blatant as the average politician. So again which segmentum do they largely operate in? Chapters can have elements in any segmentum but will largely operate in one so that individual companies can be reinforced if needed.

That doesnt answer the question. Has their geneseed developed any notable flaws and/or have certain organs stopped working?

Chapters such as the Black Dragons, Salamanders, and Raven Guard (to name only a few) have geneseed whose purity is not absolute. Each of those chapters suffers from one of their organs not functioning properly. Other chapters have lost the use of an organ like the Betchers gland; and then there are chapters who do have highly pure geneseed like the Ultramarines, Black Templars, or Iron Hands.

So once again, whats the purity of their geneseed?

You really think your a barrel of laughs don't you?

Again, do they have a single planet where the entire chapter gathers at times as many chapters do or are they like the Black Templars and tie themselves to no one world?

Those are things they use, what I'm asking is their specific combat doctrine. The Ultramarines have the codex astartes, the Raven Guard prefer covert operations preceded by lightning strikes, the Marines Malevolent use overwhelming force, and the Flesh Tearers take to close quarters engagements.

This here sounds like a minimal attempt at something very good. I'd venture the guess that this chapters geneseed has a high purity level, their founding predicated on replacing a chapter or chapters lost as a result of genetic instability. This would leads to them looking down on and only begrudgingly operating with chapters they view as impure.

(Losing functionality to the betchers gland, as some chapters have, is a mark of flawed or altered geneseed.) What is the chapter culture like? Are they fleet based or do they have a homeworld?

Are they fleet based or do they have a homeworld: abandoned space hulks and numerous planets are frequented for parties and rituals.
How do they recruit: destitute infants of worlds like necromunda are chosen for the trials of the chapter and their gene seed implantation.
What is their combat doctrine like: jet packs, dreadnaughts, scouts, las instead of plasma.
How does the chapter operate with other Imperial factions including other chapters: the divamarines don't like other chapters apart from dark angels, ultramarines among a few others, blood angels, legion of the damned and space wolves aren't seen as favourable.

Loki1416 @darkreever I'm glad you posted that the way you did because I really had no idea how to respond without sounding rude.

painting doesn't win wars, fighting wins wars and I guarantee you my marines have seen more space hulks and table tops than yours ever will, under the command of a superior tactician with expert dice rolls!!!!!!
