The Legion of Ohm
Deep in the heart of the Solstice nebula, orbiting the binary planets Solace and Desolace, Disappointment - a small volcanic moon - bears host to the fortresses of the Legion of Ohm. Founded before the discovery of a large Necron tomb hidden in the depths of Mephisto, a large pseudo-planet covered in a thin layer of dying plantation leeched of life through the foul mechanics of the Necron taint, the Legion of Ohm was born to purge the Chaos influence in a nearby system and provide a strong defensive position for the Imperium, though now finds itself having to deal with the Necron threat first.
Disappointment was discovered by a small Imperium force who expected a small resource rich moon, and instead found an apocalyptic nightmare. It's small range of wildlife mainly consists of large lizards, such as the Nychosaur with it's diamond sharp claws and massive bulk, or the smaller Opisthosaur which excels at stealth. It has been known for the Legion of Ohm to employ the local lizards as riding beasts, and it is not all too rare to see one charge into the fray - often with dangerous results for the enemy.
One such rider is Force Commander Terentius, who used to ride the great beast Raglørol to war, though since the passing of his mount he has elected to fight on foot with his Emperor-blessed Thunder Hammer. He wears an ancient suit of Artificer Armour, and has extensive inner biotics in his inner thigh and upper back where he clashed with an ancient Slaneeshi dæmon and fell from his lizard. His biotics also help him interact with the plasma-enhanced power pack he carries into battle.
Another of the Chapter's heroes is Master Chaplain Crassius. A victor of a thousand battles, Crassius no longer has a face, and barely a head - he was hit by the Gauss discharge of an ancient Necron Monolith, managing to survive through what his battle brothers proclaim was the Emperor's Will and nothing else, yet took major injuries to the head and had to have his Emperor-blessed brain encased in a life support system, which functions as his eyes and mouth - Crassius no longer has a sense of smell.
Today, the Legion of Ohm has amassed enough honour to be bestowed ancient battle armour of the Imperium and sports a fair number of Terminator suits and Dreadnoughts. Tactically, the Legion prefers hand to hand combat over long range gunfights and will stop at nothing to assault the foe. They are ready to deliver the killing blow to the Necron threat and lay in wait, biding time and fending off Chaos until the time is right.

Force Commander Terentius:
Any comments on my new Chapter? I'm still in the midst of painting and finishing the army itself. It's around 2000+ points at the moment - working on sticking a Carnosaur together. It's bloody annoying. Next up is a Terminator squadron, I think. So far my army consists of:
Two 5 man squads of Assault Marines
Two Tactical Squads (..ish. I keep finding new marines lying around)
Various HQs - Terminator Librarian, Chaplain and Captain, plus Power Armoured Captain and Chaplain
One Space Marine on Bike, complete with wheelie.
My only last question is: Do all chapters have Primarchs, or only the first founding?
havent read it all so far but looks good, il take another peek wen i have more time later but to answer the question, it is ONLY the first founding legions that had primarches.
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
~~ Surrender and serve me in life, or die and slave for me in death~~
Thanks Shame, though...
Bah, just replace "primarch" with "chapter master," and you'll be all good.
BTW, are you planning to make backpacks for the whole ARMY like that? That's a crazy pile o'bits you're gonna need. I'll buy you a straitjacket, too.
Hehe, no - I made the majority of my army before I made one of the backpacks. The backpack is only for Force Commander Terentius, who has the necessary biotic implants to interface with it. Straitjacket not necessary, only channel Dave
