First off, if I am putting this question out in the wrong forum, Sorry. I'm still learning where to Post threads.:unsure:
I'm starting a new chapter that's an offshoot of the BA. It's based on sharks and I was hoping for input on traits, background, ....and anything else that you could think of to help me build my army. I'm already gathering names so that each model has a name (almost done). I have some ideas as to a home base/planet. I have a color scheme worked out (fortress/shadow grey all over except for a white/off-white belly from ankles to lower face). Think I have the traits and some background worked out, but I'm still considering. So if I'm in the right forum and you guys have any ideas I might be able to use, please let me know. Thanks.
Well... This is gonna sound pretty cliche and maybe a tad obvious, but I think that the Chapter should be called something along the lines of the Tiger Sharks, because that just sounds cool. Plus, it makes sense if you're using the Blood Angel rules, with their Furious Charge and all.
sounds cool.. you could model on fins and stuff in place of back pack and say that they have evolved for sea warfare!!! make up some famous battle were the Ultramarines forced some chaos back into a river were you TIGER SHARKSlaid an ambush and ate them all alive
(0.0) long live the bunny... as much chaos as my 'zerkers
This is Bunny. Copy Bunny and this message into your signature to help him on his way to world Domination
If you like what i said... and why wouldn't you.. click the star
I would have to agree.
First option: USe the blood angel rules set for your chapter. Makes sense what with sharks going into a frenzy when they smell blood. You could come up with all new names and fluff for death company to represent your shark brand of crazed marines.
Traights wise, you would have to take something that shows the swiftness and ferocity of sharks. some options would be:
Be Swift + Take the fight: elite bike squads represent sharks on a swift attack, take the fight representing ferocity in close combat.
Blessed Be + Take the fight: same as above but with assualt troops.
Take the fight + No Mercy: Close combat FC tactical squads
See but be not + Take the fight or No mercy: Silent but deadly killers
Be Swift + Blessed Be: FC assualt squads and bike squads, bikes as troops. shows swiftfness and ferocity of sharks.
And thats all I can think of off the top of my head.
Mentor of Space Marine Commanders far and wide.
Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
I had originally thought of naming each type of squad something different. Bull sharks for terminators, White sharks for Honor guard, Mako's for assault squads, etc. But just using one shark might work out better. As for traits, I originally thought about Trust B Bros (give everyone in most squads a chainsword or other CCW, kinda make that their "Teeth", and that being their most revered type of weapon), and another assault trait. But I think I like the idea of No Mercy and Blessed warriors. Fins on the backs/backpacks might work well just need to get a bunch of green stuff. The death squad thing I did think about, but instead of The Rage it'll be "Frenzy". Thanks for the advice.
