I like the war college idea, and there can be squads performing field practicals justifying the specialist color scheme.

I kinda see the Legio acting as a sort of avenue for back channel dialog between chapters. Allowing for long term coordination, or the blunting of hostilities between chapters. In a way it also supports cannon by allowing a mechanism for the exchange of battlefield adaptions to STC's to various chapters. It's kinda like, well, we know the Land Raider Ares (yes, the one with a vindicator cannon) is fielded by a few different chapters, but how did other chapter commanders or forge masters know that it even existed?

With knowledge like that to be acquired, it's not surprising insular chapters would still send some their own to bring back what information they can.

I like the Honours idea...

 

I think it's an easy way to link ones force with the B&C with limited fuss - just add a purity seal in black, read and white and there you have it! In fact this can be extended as a commemoration of participating in the various B&C events...I just wish we could do something to include Chaos... Maybe bestowed by Radical Ordo Malleus Inquisitors? ;)

I  voted to stay as is, but it could be modified to include a bit more of the war college idea... I always saw the deathwatch as an 'inquisition-formed' entity, while the Legio was a 'marine-formed' entity. While they might be superficially similar, there is plenty of scope just with that difference for different motivaitons and priorities, different chains of command, etc. For example - while the Deathwatch take an oath of service to the Inquisition, the Legio marines dont (or have I missed that?) - their oaths remain to brother marines - so thier action scan be judged by marines not inquisitors, their tasks are set by marines, etc.

 

An autonamos chapter can choose to follow the requests of an inquisitor, deathwatch must follow his orders........

I say keep the status quo, but try to bring more people in. There are some great competitions run here that generate a lot of interest and participation, maybe try to organise one for the back end of the year, say you had to paint a mini from your chapter of choice or a five man combat squad from five different chapters and for doing this you get a banner like the LPC or ETL, I think this would get a good response and raise a good awareness of the legio. Just my two cents worth.


I recognise my failing and will be sure to correct it

War College!

 

My secondary vote goes to keeping it as is (no, i know we don't have these), but as the Chamber Militant for the Ordo Chronos. We need to justify that Horus Heresy subforum somehow!

What about a hybrid between the War College/Special Chapter, the idea of the War College is to learn about other chapters and what better way than on the battlefield as brothers.

Whilst on secondment to the Legio the marine repaints his armor and then has the choice to retain the colours when he returns to his parent chapter.

I am in agreement with most of our brothers and sisters here. Being an active duty soldier, the concept of a "Legio War College" speaks volumes to me as a place where battle brothers can come together and further their education in the profession of arms. Upon graduation, they are authorized a "badge" to adorn their armour (whether it's a shoulder pauldron, knee, helmet, greaves, or gauntlet - up to the individual?). I like the symbology of the Legio being a place where we can learn about each of the different fighting styles that the chapters bring to the table - basically what we do here on the forums.

I still like the idea of a "deathwatch-esque" service. I'm thinking it would be a requirement for graduation from the Legio - the brothers serve in combat together and put to practice in the real world what they have learned on campus. Think of it as a "dissertation" or "internship" to get that final college credit to graduate! LOL

All in all, I can't complain, at all, how this site is run. I have enjoyed reading through the pages of the various forums and connecting with like minded individuals over the past four years. Keep up the great work guys!

Voted for war college, but in full agreement with everyone who said that this could work tied in with the current organization (and with the honours idea for those who have served/trained at the college).

I voted War College too. But I agree that the honours idea is cool for members who have finished their tour of duty. It would also be fun to see the Legio take part in some kind of campaign. Just my humble opinion.

I have voted for war college.

 

but was thinking that it could also be something similar to the Honour Guard which operate around the eye of terror I think

 

It is similar to the Death Watch but it's purely Astartes only and no other organisation within the imperium is involved

Taking this idea a bit further, we could have it so that the Legio has a number of stations around areas such as the Eye, the Maelstrom, the Ghoul Stars and other areas such as that.

 

Also to kick a bit of life back into it, we could hold a Legio Painting Challenge where members of the Board build a model, squad or a force and paint them as well as having a bit of fluff behind them as well.

Only Heathens came up with the painting/conversion/fluff challenge before I did sweat.gif  Somehow I missed his post on the first page wallbash.gif

 

Now that I'd re-read the Legio fluff and re-read the first post I'm thinking of sticking to the old idea of a special chapter, don't know why but it just seems to appeal to me.

 

 

Edit: Or it could be an merge of the war college and special chapter, having Astartes from other chapters serving a tour of duty within the Legio (similar to the Deathwatch) and then either returning to their chapter or staying on for another tour or staying on permanently (again, similar to the Deathwatch). Though that may be too similar to the Deathwatch, food for thought is all.

 

 

Brother Tyler, any chance we can get an offical ruling on any ideas within this thread?

Actually, a painting challenge has been in the works since before I posted this poll. It's part of the reason we are conducting the poll - to finalize the requirements of the painting challenge. msn-wink.gif

Yes, I'm trying to give more people time to weigh in. The voting and comments have been tapering off, though, so we'll probably have a decision late this week or over the weekend.

Is there something planned for the fluff, or is that going to be done behind the scenes?

We'll see.

I'll probably take the comments and vote and build a straw man that we can refine further as a group (perhaps with a intermediate step where the mods make refinements before the masses).

Okay, that's a pretty conclusive result on the poll. I've also been reading all of the comments, and those will be taken under consideration.

I'm going to take the results & comments and build an initial concept. That will go through a brief refinement process and will then be presented here for a final review/refinement stage.

This will take a little time, though.

Thanks to everyone for voting and/or providing comments.
