    Sons of Setna (creation of a chapter)

    Ever since I started playing 40k I've been obsessed with librarians and other psykers. I'm presently playing a BA force that doesn't allow much of this. So I have decided to finally (I've been thinking of starting another army for a long time) begin building them up.

    So - first thing I started thinking about was - how do I get a lot of psykers in a Space marine force. After giving it some thought I went with the idea of allying a chapter of legend or ordinary codex chapter with grey knights - wich would give me at least 4 psykers; Librarian, grand master, brother-captain x2.

    The fluff of the chapter would be something like a secretive loyal chapter wich is low on numbers (about 4 or 5 full companies). This chapter is a successor chapter to the ultramarines, but it was a long time since founding and the original teachings of codex astartes has been corrupted by the multitude of psychers with connection to the warp and thereby the ruinous powers.

    The chapter was named after a potent psyker of the Ultramarines who was transferred to the Sons during the creation - and also became the chapters master.

    This makes them a loyalist chapter with a slight tendancy toward chaos...however due to the secluded homeworld of the chapter and the secretive members - no investigation has ever proved that anything is wrong.

    So - now my question to all you folks out there: I have a pretty good hint about how I will convert/build the units - what I don't know however is what chapter is going to be the base on wich I build. I have thought about allying the grey knights with space wolves - but the wolfpriest has a somewhat limited psychic ability...

    Cheers!

    Well, just base them on the Ultramarines and let Librarians be Elites choices too. Elite choice Libbies should only have 1 wound:shifty:, or something like that.
    Or you could go for a Seer council-style command squad option. It's all up to you really.

    I'd say not to go with Grey Knights and Space Wolves because of the Wolfpriests' limited psychic ability and the Grey Knight tendecy to want to KILL CHAOS!!! which is what you're dabbling in.:ninja:

    Just be a Psychically beefed up Ultramarines, that way you go with your fluff.

    Agreed! I want the army to be legal with count-as models instead...I'm not going with the grey knights - they are way to powerful and really not that psychic so I took a look in my CSM 'dex, didn't find anything there either...not really anyways. If I go with chaos I'll note that in this thread and start a new one in that forum.

    Well - vanilla marines with a lot of psykers...hmm...something in the style of the techmarine? A librarian initiate? I'm going to think up some stats....

    Elites - Initiate
    points - WS - BS - S - T - W - I - A - Ld - Sv
    ...50......4......4....4...4....2....4...2....8....3+

    Weapons: none

    Options: A Initiate can be given any equipment allowed from the Space Marine Armoury

    Independent Character: A Initiate is an independent character. See the Space Marine Character special rules for more details

    Psychic Power: Initiates have the Storm of the emperor's wrath psychic power. They may replace this power with an alternative Psychic power at the cost specified on page 21 (codicer cost).

    Another special rule for the chapter:

    Taint of chaos
    The ruinous powers of the warp has corrupted the teachings of the chapter hence they are very secretive and never cooperate with the inquisition if it is possible to avoid. They also have no priesthood as the traditions have fallen into oblivion.
    - Can never ally with the forces of the inquisition. In addition can't field chaplains.

    I've been thinking a bit on the chapter name: Setna is a powerful magician in anciant Egypt mythology....but I don't know if it will do. Maybe I should go with a more traditional name.

    Other than that - will it be playable?

    No, the name is good. Don't change it. You're Librarian heavy and dabbling into Chaos. Setna is a good name for them.

    I'd play against them, don't take this as a compliment, I'd play against anything wether or not I'd surely lose. But yours actually seem playable, no Force weapon to make 'imbalance', it's all good.

    i reallly like your idea and i would gladly play against an army like that as it adds diversity to spacemarine armies (what be great is if there was something to make your own chapter using something other than traits) ha well i can dream and good luck with your army
    P.S> like the name

    Thanks...I'm kina starting to like it now...have written an armylist/scetchup of how it would look. I'll go with the name if you folk think it's good but I still have the chapter symbol and colourscheme to work out.

    The symbol....probably something that goes with the cult librarium - a horned scull or three lightnings? The colour...hmm...I used a very nice colourscheme to paint my dragon princes: Hawk turquoise highlighted with skull white mixed with hawk T. Over this there is some gold and blue for details such as eyes and stuff.

    Plan is to have a terminator heavy army with some tactical squads; land speeders and some tanks for support.

    Since librarians are traditionally in blue, it coudle be neat to do a dark blue with dark red trim to show the chaos taint and the dark to show the secrecy. (and to seperate them from smurfs)
