Kathius IV, a doomed moon under the control of the Archenemy. Abandonded by the Imperial forces on Kathius I, the remaining resistance is dropping.

However, the Adeptus Astartes intend to even the odds. Seven Chapters are nearby the Kathius system, and send whatever forces they can spare to Kathius IV.

Unfortuantly, each chapter can only spare a few squads. Seven. Seventy Astartes is still a huge amount, but will it be enough to bring down the Archenemy entrenched on Kathius IV?

First came the Ultramarines, Proud Creaters of the Codex Astartes, sending One squad of the 2nd Company. Second came the Salamanders, deploying their Tactical squad alongside their Ultramarine brothers. Third came the Space Wolves, most barbaric and noble of the legions of he first founding, sending a Wolf Guard Pack, and the Companies' Wolf Lord, Oric Bloodblane. Fourth, came the staunch Imperial Fists, producing a Devastator Squad, proud heirs of Rogal Dorn himself. Fifth appeared the Blood Angels, an Assault Squad intent on fighting the enemy at close quaters. The Sixth Chapter to answer the call was the Iron Hands, dispatching ten Terminators of the first Company. Finally, stalking through the Shadows came the Raven Guard, the scions of Corax, boasting ten Assault Marines from Captain Shaan's Fourth Company.

Okay, I need Seven people to play the roles of the Sergeants of each Squad. Here's your Profile Template. I will play a Wolf Lord from the Space Wolves Chapter In Command of his personal Wolf Guard.

State what they are. If you are the Iron Hands, what weapons do your Terminators have? Assault Cannons?

If you don't mind I will post up a character.

Name: Veteran Sergeant Pericles Vetoris

Age: 173

Appearance: Pericles is a fairly average marine of the Ultramarine chapter. His face is scarred heavily from a century of warfare. He has shortly cropped dark brown hair, and no facial hair. His armour is heavily worn, tales of the many victories he has been in show from the amount of scrapes and dents. In battle he is always in his helm, which is white to indicate his status as a veteran. His armour is the mark 8 "Errant" armour.

Personality: Pericles is a fairly stern individual. He expects his squad to uphold the finest traditions and honours of the Ultramarine chapter. He will risk his life though to ensure his men's survival, as long as it won't compromise the objective of the mission. Outside of battle this stern demeanour appears to not change as he and his squad constantly try and prove the are one of the finest of the chapter.

Background: Pericles has had a long and successful career. Pericles originally hails from the world Calth and at a young age was presented unto the Ultramarine chapter. He was accepted and went through harsh and vigorous training before being inducted into the chapter. He was put into the 10th scout company, acting as a support role with his sniper. He earned several commendations before being thrust into action with the 2nd company.

Here he has served under Captain Cato Sicarius and respects him more than any other of his brothers. He earned more commendations as he fought on Black Reach, defending the capital before pushing forward as part of Sicarius counter attack force. He was involved in the final assault on the ork's liar, fighting with knives when his bolter ran dry. Since then he has taken part in numerous other campaigns including the Damnos incident and the Zeist Campaign. Since then he has been sent to Kathius IV to remove the filth that infests there.

Weapons: Bolter and Power Sword

Squad Weapons: 7 Bolter brethren (Xanthos, Leonides, Rapheal, Micheal, Isos, Sophus and Halius.)
1x Meltagun (Brother Orpheus)
1x Missle Launcher (Brother Thantos)

Squad Strength: 10 battle brothers (already named, including Pericles)

Chosen Chapter: Ultramarines

Hope its ok.

Name: Veteran-Sergeant Aziel Stelios

Age: 187

Appearence: Like all Raven Guard, Stelios has pale almost white skin along with hair and eyes as black as coal. Of an average height for Astartes and lean but still well built as can be expected from a marine. Stelios has one of the rare suits of Mk.7 power armour, but still keeps the distinguishing beak helmet so many of his fellow Raven Guard wear from the Mk.6 armour. His armour being dark as night allowing Stelios to disappear into the shadows as befits his chapters trademark role as stealth specialists.

Personality: Stelios is a quiet and reserved marine to those outside of his squad and even more so to those outside of the chapter, not bothering with idle conversation, only voicing his thoughts when they are required. He is slightly more open to his fellow squad members. In battle he is calm and calculating, analysing situations before engaging in combat to find the weak and vulnerable points of the enemy, unlike some of the more hot headed astartes from chapters such as the Blood Angels and Space Wolfs.

Background: Stelios was a member of Kayvaan Shrikes legendary 'Shrikes Wing' assault marines during the two year campaign on Targus VIII, where under Shrikes tutelage became an expert at stealth, recon and working behind enemy lines. After the events of Targus and Waaagh! Skullkrak, many members of the 3rd company were transfered to other companys to pass on Shrikes tactics and doctrines, thus Stelios was promoted to Veteran-Sergeant and sent to Captain Shaans 4th Company to be put in charge of the companys lead Assault Squad. Stelios like most Raven Guard has enjoyed a independent streak by Shaan, allowing him more freedom then other Chapters squads may get.

He is often sent in first along with the scouts to gather intel on the enemy positions and identify where they are most vulnerable before striking from the shadows with his dedicated squad of assault marines, 'The Ravens Talons' named after Shrikes deadly lightning claws. When the call for aid was sent out from Kathius IV, Stelios saw yet another world abandoned by the Imperium just like during the campaign against Waaagh! Skullkrak. He immiediately petitioned Shaan to be sent to the planets aid along with whatever forces his fellow chapters would send. Shaan already expecting the request granted Stelios the honour and dispatched him and the Ravens Talons to the system.

Weapons: Like most ex and current astartes of Shrikes Wing, Stelios is equipped with a pair of crackling Lightning Claws, making him a fearsome prospect in close combat.

Squad Weapons: 7x Bolt Pistol and Chain Sword (Kalon, Elias, Kai, Vanon, Brias, Deacon and Tirius)
1x Flamer (Eskalon)
1x Plasma Pistol and Chain Sword (Tarrion)

Squad Strength: 'The Ravens Talons' 10 Assault Marines including Stelios. All equipped with Jump Packs and Mk.6 Corvus pattern power armour

Chosen Chapter: Raven Guard

Couldn't remmber if regular Raven Guard assault marines could take lightning claws, can't find my index astartes with the Raven Guard rules anywhere. Let me know if anything needs changing

Name: Logan Maelstroth
Age 468
Appearance: Maelstroth has become almost completely machine over his many years withing the Iron Hands chapter and therefore has no defining human features, the main thing that distinguishes him from his squadmates are the overly complex bionic eyes he has been equipped with, which glows bright white, Maelstroth is rarely seen without his helmet on, which he had custom made when he was raised to the rank of Sergeant, which although very similar to the rest of his squad has even more bionics that increase his sight embedded within it which make him look even more robotic.
Personality: Maelstroth is a very tactically minded marine and has a very strict personality as such, and is always thinking of new battle tactics, which he then drills into his squad.
Background: Maelstroth was always a strong leader, even as a meagre scout, and this was noticed by the leader of his clan, and as he excelled through the ranks, his leadership skills became more and more noticed, until after 55 years as a terminator he was advanced to the sergeant of his own squad, by this time he was already well into his 3rd century as an Iron Hand, and took on the role of sergeant with great pride.
Weapons: carries a large power flail, and a custom made storm shield

Age 185

Personality: Strict and somber Bellum never smiles or jests. He commands with no hint of doubt, and requires the best from his men. In combat he is cold and calculating. Off the battlefield he is quiet, but still cold to almost everyone with an exception only to his superiors.

Background: Even before he was recruited Bellum had been a devastator
. He was born on Necromunda and was part of a gang. His stocky build allowed him to wield a heavier gun than anyone else his age. After his indoctrination into the Imperial Fists his build seemed to remain. As a scout he carried a heavy bolter into battle. Bellum was quickly recognized for his fierce determination and constant accuracy. Even off the battlefield he worked to hone his skill.
During his years of service as a battle brother Bellum's determination never wavered. Of himself he required the best. He ascended to leadership after a campaign against the Iron Warriors. His squad quickly became a dedicated and hardened fighting unit. In following battles it became apparent that Bellum's constant drilling and training had paid off.
When the call to aid came from Kathius IV, Bellum quickly asked for the honor of leading his brothers into battle against the hated foes.
