I'm making my own chapter, and the background story is they've been kicked out of the Imperium for various past deeds. Does that make them part of the forces of chaos? Thanks.
Well no? Unless these 'past deeds' were counted as heresy in forms of chaos etc.
The Captain disobeyed orders from Terra, when told to assault a Chaos fortress on Primus IV.
Don't ask me where that is.
They weren't as bad as going over to chaos gods, though they did insult the rest of the Space Marines... Soo... They're hunted by the Imperium of Man, but they wont go over to the Chaos Gods. So they're pretty much outcasts.
I don't know if that answers you're question, but yeah. There it is.
Yes actually that would make them outcasts and under attacks of other IG or SM Chapters!
But that doesn't mean they joined Chaos... maybe they try to redeem themselves in some way!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
The Adeptus Astartes do not answer to Terra or any force in the Imperium, save for the tithes of geneseed to confirm purity. The most logical reason for a chapter to be declared Excommunicate Traitoris without turning to Chaos would be something along the lines of what happened to the Soul Drinkers, a conflict with Imperial forces that spiralled out of control.
In theory, someone who had access to the Chapter Master could demand that they assault that fortress, but it would have to be an immensely powerful man to get them excommunicated for such shaky reasons.
Thanks for that, everyone.
I think what happened was, the Chapter... guy (I cant remember his name), when there was a Chaos fort nearby, didn't assault it. And he could have easily taken it over. So when word of this reached Terra then they were thought to have gone to Chaos. If that makes sense, I deserve a medal.
Well, if you want them to not be Chaotic, you should probably find a reason he didn't commit his forces to such an action. If it were in his power, most Chapter Masters would throw themselves at Chaotic forces if the enemy let down their guard.
About the only thing I can think of is the Chapter Master doubting the enemy's falling to Chaos (i.e. recently-turned renegade) and believing the sovereignty of the Astartes was infringed on (sort of like the Badab War).
