Alright gents and, if there are any, ladies, I've finally come to terms with not wanting to play Dark Angels. What had been holding me back for so long was my idea that they were having a pity party that spanned the millennia. After careful consideration and much thought, I've come to the conclusion that my earlier belief is hogwash. There are a lot of deeper things going on behind the scenes and that has piqued my interest.
In saying that, I am at a loss as I have very little information on how Dark Angel Successor Chapters work and this is what I want to create. I feel enough people have created proper DA armies and, to be honest, I'm not a fan of Caliban Green. Here is what I have so far in my noodle about my DIY:
-They are an esoteric order that divine where Fallen will show themselves. They go so far into this occult mindset that everyone in the Chapter, from Novice to Veteran, have different levels they can be promoted to based on retention and work with ancient tomes and documents. Basically, each brother is a warrior-monk, well versed in metaphysical science and deadly with bolter and blade.
-They hail from a harsh desert Death World where they find the indigenous people to be very hardy stock. There is some interaction with the people but that is yet to be expanded.
-I would like their armour to be a sand colour with bronze Aquila and accents. Their robes would be brown sackcloth. Does this in some way go against DA Successor Chapter livery?
That's all of my questions so far. Any basic help on how Successors work and also your thoughts on my current fluff would be most appreciated.
EDIT- A little facelift on the thread's name !
