The Cossacks are a Successor chapter to the white scars. However after playing some str8 up games as WS found that I didn't have enough scoring units. So using traits I kept Swift as the wind but thats it. It allows me to use my biker army and the rest of the marine arsenal without penalty.
The cossacks are steppes people from Poland and Russia not Mongols. They basically fight from the saddle. The army is painted red for troops and white for elite Vet sgts and all officers. They also wear the WS emblem on the shoulder pad in tribute to their founding chapter.
