This Chapter started life as the Vengeance Hawks (and you can see SCC's rendition of a librarian based on the original color scheme here). The Chapter went through some revisions over the years, with the current incarnation here. The orange/black scheme you see in the first post of that discussion has since been shifted over to the Fireclaws (my rendition of the Relictors before they got into trouble). I eventually went back to the original scheme, sort of, by replacing the grey with silver. I have a kill team in the process of being painted, as seen here. That kill team is still in progress, though coming along nicely. I won't really be able to finish it until I get the weapons sculpted (read the linked topic for details). The Liber Challenge Part Seven provided the necessary impetus to work on the background material. Unfortunately, though I had grand plans, Real Life and Other Things got in the way. I've finished something ... presentable, but it is only a fraction of what I'd hoped to have done. It will have to do for now.

Nice job!

Really enjoyed reading this. How have you done those pages? With exceptional skill in Word or is it another program?

 

I liked those little Grey Knight bits. Haven't thought of something like that.

This is my mod voice. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My mod voice is a means to an end.

Let us avoid it, alright?

Thanks.

It's all done in Microsoft Word (it's just using columns, section breaks, and different text wrapping settings for images).

Wooooooot!!! You can do that with word? I use indesign to get something like that....damn...word has more power than I thought

Open for Comissions, just PM me. The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.

Nice work. You've clearly put plenty of thought and effort into these. I like how you've woven them into the existing lore in a believable way. The only worry I have with those kind of things is the possibility that someone at GW or BL will write something that makes my lore 'wrong', but by using a lesser established event the chances of that are very low.

You've given the Chapter a personality of their own without making it too in your face which is a tough balancing act.

Gotta ask, on the first page you use a numeral for a Legion. I don't know if it's a typo or my eyes being funny. I think it should be XIII which would be Ultramarines but it also kinda looks like XIIII which would be XIV so Death Guard. Which one is it meant to be?
