This is based on the thread above. These are the core ideas I have and would like to see what the frater think.
The legion colors are red and steel. Specifically brighter red like the sky at dawn or dusk.
Legion heraldry is flames on an brazier.
Fire Keeper Tribes vary wildly in size and composition. Companies are 100 men strong and specialize, like 199th Breacher Company or 77th Veteran Company and so on.
Some sample Tribe heraldry
Esus - two bearded axes crossed on a black field
Mogon- a mountain crowned with stars
Nerius- a scepter clutched in a sea serpent's coils
Other Tribes include
The Primarch Niklaas is a large and physically imposing figure. His black hair is clipped short and he wears a heavy beard. His eyes are dark like the sky just before a storm. Niklaas is most often seen wearing terminator plate and carries a unique thunderhammer in battle.
Niklaas appears taciturn and morose to those that are not close to him. In the company of those he considers close Niklaas has a dry since of humor. The Primarch has a deep insight into human behavior but isn't always certain of how to interact with others. He values honesty above all even when others consider it blunt or even cruel.
Niklaas is a craftsman with a natural intuition of the mechanical. He is known for forging armor and weapons of stunning quality and power. His works include "Corinthian" pattern terminator armor and the monstrous ordinatus weapons used by his legion's siege engineers. As well as many gifts given to his siblings and the officers of his legion.
Flagship: Treads Upon the Night(Glorianna Class Battleship) and/or Sojourner (a unique strike cruiser)
Legion organization: The Fire Keepers are divided into 12 "Tribes" of varying size from nearly 19000 to just over 8000. The Tribes are overseen by commanders with the title of "Chief Captain" and are subdivided into 100 man companies led by Captains. Total legion size is roughly 150,000 astartes. Most of the legion serves with the primarch's own 77th Expedition, with two exceptions.
Tribe Esus and Tribe Mogon, about 18000 astartes total, are attached to the 1445th Expedition.
Chief Captain Jehu of Tribe Nerius commands the 333rd Expeditionary Fleet from the Battle Barge Perditio Rex, his primarch's former flagship. Tribe Nerius' compliment is roughly 13000 astartes and is accompanied by regiments of the Imperial Army and a force of a Titans.
