Welcome to Librarium Online!
I want to make a Diorama/Scene for my Space Marines Chapter. It must include a Space Marine from my own DIY Chapter found in my signature link. I want it to be some sort of representation of my Chapter, something like a mascot.
I came up with the idea of an execution, the Marine putting a bolter to someone head, but don't really know how to do that. A Marine fighting in close combat is also something nice, but I would like to hear your ideas.
It has to be a pretty simple conversion thing, so please no Green stuff.
I would really like to hear your ideas, because I have run out of imagination.
I greatly appreciate you for helping me out. Thanks.
Doing a thing like this without GS is kind of impossible, really. It is very good to use to reposition arms and change other stuff as well.
I recommend it.
it would also be easier to come up with ideas if we had some clue as to the nature of your marines
Mysterious Member of the ANZAC Clan
Though the Shadow Spectres have a long and glorious history fighting in the Emperors name, their exact origins and earliest days are clouded and mysterious. The Shadow Spectres dislike to fight alongside other Imperial forces, except under dire circumstances. The Shadow Spectres follow their own path, striking out of nowhere to send out the Emperors will and disappearing the moment after battle has been done.
They don't coordinate and associate with the other Imperial forces, they don't want anyone from outside the Chapter to come to know too much about them. But still they are a proud and honourable order, they fight in the name of the Emperor. The Shadow Spectres see themselves as instruments of death, bringing punishment to the enemies of the Emperor.
The Shadow Spectres have no specific homeworld, they are a small fleet-based chapter.
Their Chapter fortress is a mighty Battle Barge known as the Black Rain, the rest of the chapter travels aboard a host of Strike Cruisers and Battle Barges. While there is no fixed base of operations for the Shadow Spectres, there are a number of planets that they consistently draw their potential recruits from. These worlds are mostly Deathworlds, worlds where a large proportion of hunter warriors are around. There have also been reports that they draw recruits from known Imperial Guard regiments who have fought alongside the Shadow Spectres. The Shadow Spectres appear out of nowhere to assist other Imperial forces in dire straits, and then disappearing from the scene, occasionally taking with them some Guardsmen or local militia-men whose valorous actions in the Emperors service made them stand out.
The Shadow Spectres fight with stealth, before the battle scouts are sent to the front to investigate the enemy strengths and weaknesses. The scouts will give all the information regarding the enemy to the Captain. With this information the army will then infiltrate the enemies position. When the Captain gives the order to attack all hell will break loose, Tactical and Devastator squads will use their heavy weapons to strike from range. While other Tactical squads and the Command squad who have used infiltration will assault the enemy in close combat. The Assault squads will use their jump packs to also get into hand to hand combat. When the need is high, Terminators will deep-strike to where to fighting is the toughest. The Shadow Spectres donâ€™t use Bikes or Landspeeders, they donâ€™t fit into their combat doctrine, which is infiltration. Armoured vehicles are also used less than normal Codex chapters. Most Companies have a small selection of vehicles at their disposal onboard their Battle Barge, they are only called upon when really needed.
The Organisation of the Shadow Spectres follows the standard practices laid down in the Codex Astartes, with ten companies, each of ten squads. The First Company is the Veterans company, consisting of mostly veterans in Terminator armour and some (Venerable) Dreadnoughts. The second to fifth companies are battle companies, and the sixth to ninth companies are reserve companies. The tenth company is the Scouts company. The Chapter consists of the prescribed mix of Battle Companies, though the exact make up of those companies can vary quite extensively. Each Company is led by a Captain and he is supported by a Chaplain and a Librarian. Most of the times when a Battle Barge is away from the Black Rain, it carries a Scout squad from the tenth company and a Terminator squad from the first company with them. A Battle Barge mostly carries two companies with it, one battle company and the other as reserve.
Like many Chapters, the Shadow Spectres do not venerate the Emperor as a god, but as the mightiest of men. They see the Emperor as their one and only father. This is allayed by the fact that they do not know the identity of their Primarch, which leads them to give praise to the Emperor with a fervour greater than almost any other chapter.
The Shadow Spectres geneseed is relatively stable, there are little known mutations.
There has been much speculation regarding which of the Founding Chapters the Shadow Spectres geneseed is derived from. The Ultramarines have been suggested, but this is likely to be based simply on the fact that a lot of chapters geneseed is derived from the Ultramarines because of their stable geneseed. No facts have ever been presented to establish a definitive single source of the genetic material that makes up the chapter. The fact that the Shadow Spectres themselves have no record of the chapter they descended from implies that they could easily have been a chapter created in anticipation of some threat to the Imperium in centuries past that has since been met and defeated. The real reason about their founding remains a mystery.
Brother-Captain Stam is a great warrior, a man of honour. Bearing dozens of battle scars to prove that he is a ultimate warrior. He is the Captain of the Shadow Spectres 3rd Company. Always leading the attack, making sure he strikes first. He fights with two special lightning claws, instead of four small blades, the lightning claws consists of one bigger blade. The two blades were founded on an artefact world deep in the eastern fringe. The world was later destroyed because of an Exterminates by the Inquisition for reasons unknown. The Companies Techmarine build the blades into two normal issue Lightning claws arms. The two blades have a constant blue glowing, sometimes the last thing an enemy sees. Brother-Captain Stam has led his company for decades, fighting in big campaigns for the Emperor, he will keep doing his task as a punisher, until his last breath.
