Adamantium Souls and Ceramite Hearts
Heres a chapter I plan on writing a fluff story about. Tell me what you think, this thread will also serve as my story posting point.
Adamantium Souls and Ceramite Hearts--
Chapter Name - Amaranthine Ward (AKA Shield Legion)
Founding - Unknown (Maybe changed to most recent)
Parent Chapter - Salamanders
Chapter Master - "Iron Halo" Jackson
Home World - Scutum Prime [Fortress Forge World] + Scutum Luna [Moon, Death World]
Specialty - Unbeatible defense and custom crafted arms and armour
Warcry - "We are the Sovereign's Shield! None shall break us, none shall move us!"
Chapter Background -
Shield Legion is a highly defensive chapter with the focus of defending key points and lending aid to PDF's. The chapter designs and forges their own arms and armour like their parent chapter, but allows the introduction of creativity into their works. New weapons designs are constantly being considered and tested, and it is rumoured the Adeptus Mechanicus are rather envious of the Shield Legions achievements. The chapter views building owns own weapon as a badge of honour. "A Ward Brother's weapon is built using his soul, and heart...the weapon is truely an extension of his being. Also, I don't trust the shitty work the Adeptus Mechanicus proceeds to call 'master crafted', my toilet took more skill to craft!" - "Iron Halo" Jackson.
Ward Brothers are well known for their acts of merit and compassion. It is not uncommon to see a Shield Brother carry guardsmen from the frontline to aid stations. Ward Brothers firmly believe any soldier of the Imperium is his equal, but reject the tactics of Imperial commanders who throw their men's lives away. There is a story of Ward Brother throwing a cowardly Imperial general across the battle field saying, "Coward join your men and charge the field". Ward Apothocaries assist in the healing of the wounded along side the Hospitaller orders. The uniqueness of the chapter willing to help others is looked kindly upon by guardsman, but fellow chapters look upon the compassion as a weakness. Ironicly not a single Ward Brother as fallen to Chaos.
Ward Brothers are chosen on hive worlds. The ruling elite to the lowest poor are potential recruits. After being selected, individuals are reviewed for psycological illness...the chapter does not need mindless killers, but logical and controlled fighters. Recklessness and hyperaggressiveness can easily destory a defensive position. The remaining potentials are then shuttled to Scutum Luna to survive for a month's time. Those working togeather will survive...those who will not will die quickly.
Ward Scouts first act as a Ward Brother is to craft their very own bolter while under the instruction of a 6th Company Forge Apprentice.
Chapter Structure- [Basic layout will expand upon later]
1st Company - Command
"Iron Halo" Jackson
Master of Chaplains
Great Forge Master
2nd Company - Adamantium Souls
Entirely composed of Dreadnaughts
3rd Company- Ceramite Hearts
4th Company - Tank Busters
5th Company - Screaming Support
6th company - Forgeworks
7th company - Ward Scouts
Slightly mutated from the standard Salamanders gene-seed, Shield Legion has an higher than usual resistance to the warp and can predict troop movements. The ability is extremely simlar to a Farseer's ability to predict the future. Skin pigmentation is entirely depent on the Ward Brother, this creates a racially diverse chapter. It is this diversity what only strenghtens the chapter's fighting ability.
BAWKSES FOR THE BAWKS GOD!
The METAL BAWKS protects.
I FEEL THE BAWKS OVER TAKING ME - ITS A GOOD PAIN.
There is no innocence just degrees of BAWKSES.
For the Greater BAWKS!
Bring me closer I want to hit them with my BAWKSES.
