Which chapter has the best scouts??
Been working on some background fluff for my chapters characters, and i'm making them all ex-Death Watch. So i need the above question answered, so i can do the background for my Scout Company Master.
P.S- The chapters characters are all ex-Death Watch veterans who chose to become the nucleus of a newly founded chapter instead of returning to their original chapter.
Also, when/what was the last founding? Because thats the one i'm going to use for my chapter.
Cheers in advance.

SPace Wolves have the best scouts without doubt.
Even the scout sergeants for most chapters are uber elite, the actual scouts are not.
Space Wolf scouts however are entirely veterans and this is reflected in their rules.
Problem with this is that SW do not bugger off and found new chapters, so I would then consider raven guard (who are the most infiltraty, but are not so experienced).
A question.. will they still be wearing their original chapter colours (with deathwatch icon) or the new chapter colours. If I were to be a fluff puritan, it should technically be the former.Originally Posted by trub
Also, I'm having trouble seeing how they'd willingly choose to leave their chapters, or why their chapters would let some of their best veterans dishonour them by leaving the chapter.
But the core of the idea is cool, it's gonna take some hammering out but it will work.
I don't think there is a chapter with the best scouts. All scouts are new to the whole superhuman warrior thing anyway, so, by the standards of space marines, they're probably all equally rubbish. :tongue:
The chapters who use their scouts to best effect are likely chapters who already have some kind of leaning towards stealth or covert warfare.
i would have to say the Space Wolfs. those Long Toothed Lone Wolf Badmen....
thwe Raven Guard would be pretty close.
I think SW scouts are the best because they are all veterans who have seen more battles than a normal SM. While normal scouts are even less then a rooky compared to SM. They are put in the scout company because they need to get more skills in warfare and the best place to learn that is on the battlefield itself.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Well, a long time ago I remember reading up on some "Jade warrior" Chapter and apparently their scouts are like specialised ninja vets, and not just newcomers.
I dont like the idea but if yer looking for elite scouts..
I blame everything on Ronnie James Dio.
