In brainstorming stage. Suggestions welcome, as i am not as knowledgeable about White Scars.
Progenitor: White Scars
Homeworld: none, Fleet Based
Primary area of operation: The Veiled Region, Segmentum Tempestus
Founded from the White Scars to explore The Veiled Region of the Segmentum Tempestus and combat the large number of Dark Eldar raids in the sector.
Due to their heavy use of risky teleportation technology, the marines of the chapter quickly took a symbol of teleportation, a sigil of lightning, as their heraldry and became known as "The Lightning Lords" for their unusual combat doctrine.
The Lightning Lords learned the virtue of lightning fast assaults from their progenitors, but they have developed their own approach to fast strikes. They specialize in teleportation assaults, utilizing advanced teleportation technology to outmaneuver and surprise enemies. Almost all battle brothers carry close combat weapons (as in at least a chainsword) into battle with their bolters and other ranged weapons. Therefore, each brother is prepared for both ranged and close combat at all times.
Their chosen specialization has resulted in Imperial forces often calling on the chapter for boarding actions and clearing Space Hulks. As such, they have become experts at fighting in the close confines of star forts, ships and Space Hulks.
Close Combat Weaponry:
Power Swords - including power dao, standard pattern and munitorum pattern
Power Guan Dao - limited use of this White Scars style power lance
Powerfist/Lightning Claw - mostly used by Terminators
The Lightning Lords are organized into 10 Companies, but do not follow Codex squad organization. Instead their squads are equipped as a combination of an assault squad and tactical squad (see above).
Distinction between squad types (use standard Codex symbols):
tactical marines are equipped with standard chapter loadout and serve the general combat duty
assualt marines are usually equipped with standard chapter loadout - they are only marines designated to use jumppacks or bikes
devastators are usually equipped like tactical marines - they are the only marines designated to use devastator weaponry, which is only used on an as-needed basis (which is not much due to the confines of their chosen theater of war - they are not effective in starship corridors)
Battle Barges: Stormseer, Epyon
Strike Cruisers: Emperor's Horseman, Heaven's Lance, Hawkstar, Khagan's Legacy
Colors: Skull White, Charadon Granite, Necron Abyss, Mordian Blue, Boltgun Metal
