Ok so after reading EpostilaryFabion's Midnight Raptors fluff i was inspired to create my own so i thought i might try a quick basic outline of a Space Marine chapter who i call the Angel Of Deceit. This is only a quick description and so ill go into more detail when ive had some feedback. Ok so here goes......
The Angels Of Deceit are a successor chapter of The Dark Angels as you can tell, they are honoured with keeping the dark secret of caliban and Luther a secret for all eternity and will do anything to make sure it isnt discovered (i was gonna go as far to say that would even attack a fellow Space Marine force but i dont know about that). They know the most about about the rebeelion out of all the successor chapters but even they do not know all of the mystery.
I havnt really thought about this yet because im not too familiar with the 40k universe at the moment.
The Angels Of Deceit prefer to act as quietly and as secretively as possible, if it was up to the Chapter Master Ezavion, no one but the Dark Angels would know they existed. They prefer to attack in melee and have learned to get as close as possible to the enemy without being discovered. Also because of this they have been taught how to wield their bolters in one hand for tactical flexability. They also do not have many vehicles in the chapter apart from the rhinos that transport with squads to battle, however it has been said that the Dark Angels have lent vehicles such as land Raiders to the chapter in times when the secret was close to being revealed.
I havnt got a clue about this so any help would be good. i was gonna mention that even though Ezavion is the current chapter master he is really a puppet of Chief Librarian Ezeikiel of The Dark Angels
Most tactical marines have taken a vow to never speak when those of different races or space marine chapters are in earshot, but veterans, Terminators, Chaplains and the Chapter Master have all be know to shout "They Shall Not Know!"
The power armour and terminator armour of the Angels Of Deciet is grey with the shoulder pads black with black trim, the right kneepad is dark angels green and the left is also black. Veterans have green trim on their right shoulderpad and veterans have their right shoulder pads green. The chapter master has both his shoulderpads green showing their succession of the Dark Angels. The symbol of the chapter is a winged book.
Thankyou for reading and any input is appreciated.

Personally seeing as they're both members of that inner circle or whatever it is that knows about the fallen, I'd think they'd have a fair degree of trust between one another. Personally I'd see it more likely that you Chapter Master is not a puppet, but has some ties with Ezekiel, possibly receiving form of missions from him.I havnt got a clue about this so any help would be good. i was gonna mention that even though Ezavion is the current chapter master he is really a puppet of Chief Librarian Ezeikiel of The Dark Angels
However, that begs the question, why the Chief Librarian, I can't remember him being in Charge of the DA. Surely directing the activities of your Angels of Deceit would be the job of Azrael?
From what you've written so far, it seems you want a Chapter that works almost like a private hitman for the DA?
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
I dont know why i chose Ezeikiel to be honest, i always saw him as a shady sought of figure, and thats what i was hoping the chapter woudl come across as so thats good .

Origonal idea, I like it. With a little work this could be some truly awesome fluff.Spot on TriumphPersonally seeing as they're both members of that inner circle or whatever it is that knows about the fallen, I'd think they'd have a fair degree of trust between one another. Personally I'd see it more likely that you Chapter Master is not a puppet, but has some ties with Ezekiel, possibly receiving form of missions from him.Well if they are acting as private hit-men for the DA then they wouldn't wanna be traced back to the chapter, and definetly not the chapter master. So maybe whoever they recieve their orders from is passing on a message from Azreal.However, that begs the question, why the Chief Librarian, I can't remember him being in Charge of the DA. Surely directing the activities of your Angels of Deceit would be the job of Azrael?
On to some other stuff the battle cry would sound a bit sus to other SM don't ya think. As for homeworld I would say they should be fleet based as to do their job they would have to be on the move most of the time. With the organisation all maybe they have their own type of Death Wing like the DA. Since they like melee they might have more assault marines than normal. 2 companies of scouts would fit in with the whole stealth thing you are gunning for. Thats all I can think of at the moment, hope I helped.

Yup it did, i was gonna make them fleet based but didnt really know, i think ill have to start reading some 40k to get some ideas.
As for the connection to the Dark Angels they still appear to other non Dark Angel chapters to be a normal chapter. As only the Dark Anngel chapters know of their purpose.
Good point about the battle cry, if anyone can think of a good one to do with fluff it would be much appreciated.
As for the informant from the DA i dont know how to write that as ive never been particularly good at English.
Thankyou for reading.
