Okay so I am making an army using dark angel rules. they are a lot like dark angels and they are called the caliban ghosts, however I am open to names. they are a 3rd founding dark angels chapter. They have their own companies of ravenwing and deathiwng however they are fairly small and less than the usual 100. Their Chapter master/Cheif Librarian is Librarian Augustine who is considered to be a master strategist and powerful psyker. He wears either Terminator armour or power armour into battle and depending on the strategy will charge headlong into battle or direct his troops from afar. Another important character in chapter history is Epistolary Partheion now emtombed in a dreadnaught. Partheion Discovered Augustine when Augustine was fairly young and a member of the nearby imperial gaurd garrisson. He sensed Augustines abilities and recruited him for the chapter. Augustine a youth (for marine standards) had a problem with discipline and leaving behind his past life (he had been orphaned and desperately trying to find his parents. Partheion was frowned upon for guiding Augustine and stripped of his title of cheif librarian. eventually Augustine became Chief Librarian and later given the rank of Chapter master. He rewarded Partheion for his kindness.
Basically these guys are pretty typical dark angels fighting hunting chaos and the fallen. However they lead by the sometimes hot headed Augustine have been known to clash with chapters like the black templar and blood angels. Most of the time however they do their duty as requested for the best of the imperium adapting to fight different enemies. They are a yound chapter and like to Make use of devastators, bikes and small plasma toting tactical squads. Often Augustine himself and his personal command squad will drop pod in to turn the tide of the battle in isolated areas (they captured 4 table quarters in 4 games of cleanse in a friendly tournament, total quarters produced the winner and I won by 1). The Ghosts never fall back. Mostly the fight in cities and on worlds that are cities temselves, defending the imperium were its needed most. As a result they are capble city fighters and are good at holding ground after a surgical strike. At the outset of the chapters history before even having their own homeworld they fought in the battle for Janos IV (name of the planet in that tournament). Largely due to the ghosts the planet was freed of its chaos taint. 2 months a large number of necrons attacked Janos IV. Again the Ghosts freed it. It seemed only right that the chapter build their fortress monastary on this world. Typicly the Ghosts don't use tanks because of Augustine who prefers man power. However they make a wide use of whirlwinds and landspeeders.
Well there you have it, what did you think
Why are they small? Ravenwing and Deathwing are just the First and Third(?) companies of the Dark Angels. There is no real reason why a codex chapter would drop these.Originally Posted by Librarian AugustineWhat sort of a world did Augustine grow up on? Most people of army age by our standards are too old to become space marines, as they need to be implanted before puberty. And why just find someone and recruit them? Was this world one of their normal recruitment places (was it their homeworld, in other words)? Most Imperial servants would eliminate untrained psykers on sight.Originally Posted by Librarian AugustineYound? They can't be a young chapter if they were Third Founding. Or did you mean something else?Originally Posted by Librarian Augustine
i didn't mean they drop them I mean that they don't have the full resources yet and that those companies are not yet at full strengthOriginally Posted by XerxesI will have to answer this later but I thought him being really young was wrong not vicce versaWhat sort of a world did Augustine grow up on?

A chapter wouldn't be deployed if it wasn't at full strength. Not having veterans I can understand, but not enough equipment?Originally Posted by Librarian AugustineIn which case move them up in the foundings. There have been twenty-six to date.Originally Posted by Librarian Augustine
okay I'm not worried about little details like being the 27th founding chapter.
Once again I meant they didn't have enough veterans and so deployed parts of those companies with the battle companies
There are way more than 27 chapters. Did you mean a 27th founding chapter?
Also, I'm pretty sure that Librarians can't be Chapter Masters.
Lastly, there is a feeling of "so what?" in your army history. Many of the things you said are well and good, but so what? Elaborate! Elaborate! Elaborate!
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
