    i have an idea

    i have an idea but no clue where its going. my idea is this. i play lost and the damned witch is a horde army cc and ranged. the colors(if this means anything is chainmail or boltmetal and midnight blue) and there name is The Damned Company(if any names other then mine pop into your head plz feel free to tell me).

    The Damned Company is bascily mercenaries. They don't like the emperior but will fight beside if need be. i like khorne because i was once a faithful khorne player(i like ther throw sradagy into the wind and charge them down).

    thats alll i have come up with and don't know where to go so any fluff loving people out there have any sugestion feel free to tell me all of them :yes:

    Those who live be the pen die by those who live by the sword. Those who live by the sword die by those who live by the gun. Which one do you live by.

    I'm pretty sure the LatD would never fight for the Imperium, but I may be wrong.

    And for fluff, just write a story about them and one of their battles/invasions or something. But write it in proper, full English with grammar, not text talk.

    Not so much that, but more like the Imperium would never fight with worshippers of Chaos.. if the LatD are followers of Khorne, and the Imperial forces know that, they would rather fight and die than fight alongside them.

    ok, i'll give it a try

    so here it is...
    the damned company was once a regiment of the imperial guard. however, during a trip through the warp to a far off imperial planet, something went wrong with the warp drive and the ship was lost in the warp. hundreds of years later, the ship reimerged from the warp. the guardsmen had all become horrid warp spawned mutants, driven insane by thier hellish exposure to the the imaterium. they have become completely mad, broken husks, mere reflections of thier former selves. they still believe in thier twisted minds that they serve the emporor, but there is truly a much darker force guiding thier actions. now, they travel the galexy in thier warp tainted ship, offering up thier services as mercenaries to whoever needs thier services, comiting terrible crimes in the name of the emporor...

    well, hope you like it. my first attempt at writing some fluff. :shifty:

    It works well, but the "lost in the Warp" mechanic is used too often. Not entirely sure what you could sub in here, but an alternative would be good.

    How about the class of battle cruiser they were on corrupted them. I read yesterday that sometimes Cultist Tech Magnos who design Imperial ships sometimes purposely work design flaws into the ships so that they have weaker defenses against attacks from the warp.

    I believe the Retaliator Cruiser is one example of this.

    I think it's not so much the 'lost in the warp' thing which is overused but the 'lost during a starship journey.' With all the options you've got, it seems a bit limited. They could be a cult with access to armouries.. a PDF unit whose planet was pulled into the eye, the remains of an inquisitorial taskforce left behind on a corrupted world. There are lots of ways to be corrupted beyond the 'event horizon' scenario.

    Heck, what about this. They were just a normal military unit (guard, PDF, inquisitorial task force etc) until someone had the bright idea of setting up a Imperial military cult (think Mithraism in the late era roman army) anyway, they all had fun, developed special manly bonds of loyalty and military honour and all that but gradually the rituals got more and more extreme until the authorities (who thought it was all a harmless bit of faith) realize there's something desperately wrong with the regiment. Sadly, they all get torn apart before they can warn anyone, there's a big orgy of destruction and the survivors of the cult manage to steal a transport ship and escape offworld to pick up new recruits.

    The original members may die, but there's always a few survivors to pass on the word to another regiment. So the cult never dies.

    If you were going to include a greater daemon or daemon prince, this is even better, as they could be guiding the cult's development through each successive incarnation, growing stronger from the bloodlust every time another regiment goes over.

    If you want to go for style over substance (slightly unfair maybe) read the comic "the Losers" then transport it into the Wh40K universe....... Basically a Veteran Imperial guard
    company is used for some sensitive inquisitorial duty, After the mission is complete their extraction vessel is destroyed by the Inquisitor killing them and wiping out all evidence of the mission. Well that was the plan....... in fact the guard weren't on the vessel and now they want revenge on the Imperium and their former Inquisior master in particular......
