Does anyone know any fluff to the Eagle Warriors chapter? I'm torn between either the Black Dragons or the Eagle Warriors - but I've run a forum search and there seems to be no background on the Eagles.
I'm thinking of a highly mobile, precision-striking force; maybe these traits
BE SWIFT AS THE WIND
SEE, BUT DONâ€™T BE SEEN
FLESH OVER STEEL
I dont like taking multiples of squads and ending up with hundreds of the same miniature to paint (this is as much of a painting/conversion thing as it is for competitions) - I plan on having an assault squad, land speeders and bikes but no multiples of same unit.
I'd appreciate any feedback or pointers to background info on the Warriors!
Hmm.. I don't think there is much fluff on them. But they are a Second Founding Chapter of the Ultramarines and their colour is the halved blue/white scheme.
I don't think 'See, but don't be seen' is very fluffy for them with that striking colour scheme but of course, it is up to you.
They could use the halved colour scheme as their 'dress' uniform that they use in pitched battles and assaults, when they want the enemy to know who is killing them. When a more subtle aproach is needed they could use camouflage paint. The last concrete example of this is from Rogue Trader but the introduction of infiltrate in the new SM codex implies (to me) that there are chapters who take a less prideful view of battle than others.Originally Posted by BobaHat
It would also give you a more varied look to the army, the normal squads and vehicles etc could have the halved scheme, while the infiltrating squads could have camouflage paint, netting, silenced weapons and other things on them.
One thing though, do you need to take a doctrine for this? Unless you want a lot of terminators or more than three squads of infiltrators you could use veterans to infiltrate. You wouldn't have to take a major disadvantage if you got rid of SBDBS.
