    Mantis Warriors

    Well, I recently finished reading the new Warrior Brood novel. Very good. But I was curious to see if anyone had any other fluff on them? What I know so far is -

    1.) They rebelled (with?) the Astral Claws, but eventually returned to the Imperium.
    2.) The Emporer mysteriously/suprisingly offered them amnesty.
    3.) They are not allowed to recruit until they have killed every last Astral Claw
    4.)They have some awesome psyker-types But it's in the novel.

    So can anyone help me out?

    All sounds right to me.

    I got this off the net, so some of it might not be reliable.

    Their colour scheme is snot green.
    Their name seems to be interchangable with Mantis Legion, or perhaps it's just been changed in GW history.
    They are on a 100 year penitent crusade.
    Their homeworld was forfeited to another chapter.

    Gw has not produced a great deal of fluff for a lot of the tiny chapters like that. You're pretty much free to make up your own.

    All space marine librarians are awesome psykers. I see no reason why the mantis warriors should be special. If you ask me, there's far to much 'specialness' in the fluff as it is.

    Yes, that is rather annoying. In published fluff like that, space marines are nearly invincible and only die when they decide to sacrifice themselves for the good of everyone else/the universe. Though it is entertaining, it is rather annoying when you realize your army is far from invincible.:shifty: Anything else guys?
