Added a little bit to "The Great Rift" in the History section as well as introduced the new 4th Company, which are all Primaris.

Good job overall, but what is the "Chapter Schism" that I believe prevented the Angels of Shadow from answering the Dark Angels' call for aid?
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Oh the Schism happened much earlier. This new bit is a Second Siege by another force.

So I've been toying about with renaming the 1st Company as Blade Brethren no longer feels like it fits. Also a friend pointed out the similarities to the Black Templars' Sword Brethren.

 

With that in mind I have come up with the following ideas:

  • Eclipse Knights - taking inspiration from the Eclipse Drake (the most spiritually important of the 9 species of dragon on the planet) of their homeworld, and mirroring the name of the 2nd Company Saurian Knights (Saurian Knights are cavalry from the homeworld riding Raptors Cold Ones Saurians. I may have to create to Drake Knights or something.)
  • Death Brethren - nod to the Deathwing. Feels a little weak.
  • Death Knights - as above, equally feels a little lacking
  • Eclipse Brotherhood - Again the reference to the Eclipse Drake. This one feels good.

 

I'm leaning towards the Eclipse Brotherhood, but let me know what you think.

I might use that as a honour. Sounds like an equivalent to an Iron Halo or something

Claws of the Eclipse? Talons of the Eclipse? (Space Wolves and Night Lords also refer to squads as "Claws," so there are canon references to using "Claw" as a term for a certain sized organization.)

Well I was aiming more for a knightly feel rather than a beastly feel. Sure, they revere the beasts of their world, but they are not beasts themselves. Although Claws and Talons would suit the second company very well for squad designations. Cheers for the help.

 

And yes, I'm adding all of it to my design document.
