Hello there, I've just signed up and i was wondering if people could help me decide what to arm my chapter master with.
My chapter is called the Lords of the Aurora, they greek based, they're a splinter chapter of the Night Lords, leaving the night lords when the night lords became traitors. Currently my chapter master has artificer armour, a master crafted power weapon, purity seals and a storm shield, and i was wondering what would be the best ranged weapon to give him?
I wouldn't, if you're going for fluff. A MC power-weapon and storm shield sounds pretty cool, and greek, especially if you make the wep a spear, and a storm sheild counts as a one-handed weapon anyway. If you downgraded it to a combat sheild, you could give him a pistol/CCW to give him an extra attack, or a storm bolter/combi-weapon to look cool. Just my thoughts

ok, so downgrade storm shield to combat shield, and maybe a combi-melta?
oh btw, his power weapon is a spear anyway

thank you for the info
Just a small note on your background.
The second founding (which split the loyal Legions into chapters) happened after the Horus Heresy and only geneseed from the loyal Legions were used. Almost all geneseed from the traitors have been destroyed, except from a small stash that is held in a hidden vault on Mars and guarded by the Adeptus Mechanicus.
Consider the Iron Snakes, most known from the book Brothers of the Snake. They are themed around ancient Greece and fight with spears and shields when engaging in close combat.
Not saying that you should take these as your chapter, but you could use them for inspiration. They are a second founding chapter and if I remember correctly they use geneseed from the Ultramarines.
part of the backstory for my chapter is that they left the night lords before the second founding, when the horus heresy began.
I don't there is to much of a problem with them being a faction of the Night Lords, but fluffwise make sure it was a small group. The Legions were fervently loyal to their Primarchs, and only a few traitors chsoe the Emporer. Also, you might want to make these guys top secret in your fluff. Not many loyalists would take kindly to a Tratior Legions descendants, even if they were loyal.
good point, the story is that they've only revealed themselves recently, and theres about 600 of them still around, but the inquisition has discovered them and is keeping a constant eye on them.
Cool. Are they gonna have any resemblance to the Night Lords by any chance? Be it apearance, doctrine, etc.
