Okay, I'm getting ready to start thinking about arranging some fluff, but I am in need of some example inspiration. Therefore, I have decided to start this thread...
Calling all SoB players, talk about your armies. Do you play one of the six Greater Orders or use a Lesser Order of your own design? If the later, please share name, livery, background, et cetera.
Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely...
but it rocks absolutely, too!
Name: The Order of the Cold Desire
Livery: Ice Blue Fleur de Lys over silver background
Background: A quite, smaller Lesser Order of the Sisterhood. It was created at first do be a glowing light of the power of the Emperor in the Eastern Fringe, to have a status much like the Space Marines of the area, shining Seraphim to the Angels of Death, showing by example the best a citizen of the Imperium could be. This plan failed when a radical Inquisitor known as the Celestial Executioner took the Order of the Cold Desire (then called the Order of the Bright Blade) on a special assignment that led them down a dark path of senceless murder and bloodshed such as the Celestial Executioner delighted in.When they returned to their base they had become cold and ruthless killers. Never giving expression when they killed, enjoying it on the inside on an intellecual level.
Because of this flaw within their psyche, they have an amazingly high corruption rate. Two out of every six Sisters will eventually be corrupted to Khorne because of the training. However, they accept this as a nessicary loss, for they are made all the stronger from it.

Mine is the Order of The Shield.
As you may recognize from the order's symbol, it is an Ordo Minoris that has (mainly) emerged from the ranks of the Martyred Lady.
Here's some fluff to read for you: Liber Sororitas Scutum
"Do you want your heretic rare, medium or well done, Lord Inquisitor?"
order of the violet tear:
a group of sisters following a saint aemillia's led.
the colors are purple armour and white robes.

The Trim color is Black
The Weapon color is Dark Red
The eye color is sky-ish Bleu

Still working on names for a more troop based army and maybe a tank heavy army.
I'll be using lots of allies as is fun and very customizable

-HONORABLE MENTIONS IN BLITZKRIEG PAINTING COMP-
"THAT I.G. GUY WITH THAT OVERDEVELOPED TRIGGER FINGER"
I was thinking of doing something like "Order of the silent blade" or "Order of the Humanity Of Man" or maybe "Order of the Ethereal blade". Yes that is a blade fetish you may have noticed, rest assured it stays within Order names.

Name: The Order of the Steel Rose
Livery: blue rose with a skull in the center
Background: Originaly a mission for the Order of the Red Star stationed on the planet Berthe in the Umojan sector to help control inter-denominational religious disputes on the planet. While guarding the planet the force stationed there was called it investigate an artefact construction workers found while clearing a forest. The artefact was found to be the tomb of Saint Berthe, whose remains had been missing for some 2,000 years. A shrine was established on the site and a detachment of sisters was left to guard it. Due to the highly religious nature of the Umojan citizens , the temple steadily grew, growing into a minor order in a matter of decades. The new Order was named the Order of the Steel Rose , named after the weapon wielded by the great Saint Berthe in battle.
