Before Raktra was discovered on Uran, the VIIth Legion were warriors of a very different kind. Dubbed the Shepherds of Eden, they were among the most virtuous of Mankind's heroes, fighting to protect human life wherever possible. In a cruel twist, however, upon being united with their gene-sire, both parties found each other abhorrent.

The Shepherds endured a purgatorial existence, blackening their armour and having the name Berserkers of Uran thrust upon them. Miserably they trudged in the bloody footsteps of Raktra's true sons, watching their once beloved Legion become a byword for cruelty.

Yet this did not last, due to the defiance of a Shepherd named Khârn. The circumstances are not spoken of outside the Legion, but the Shepherds broke away from the VIIth and, championed by a number of Raktra's brother Primarchs, were granted the status of a small, auxiliary Legion. Revitalised, they again carved themselves a place in the annals of the Great Crusade, though always wary of Raktra's hatred. However, they never guessed at the events that would split the Imperium asunder, and give the Ashen King the chance he yearned for, to crush his bastard sons once and for all.

A nice creamy white with very clean golds around the trims. Like the angels from Darksiders.

Alas, regular painter doesn't do white, so I've done what I can:

 

Gold = #bf9d04

I believe their alliances are thus:

Battle Brothers with the Iron Bears, Halcyon Wardens, Scions Hospitalier, Wardens of Light and Imperial Army

Fellow Warriors with the Crimson Lions, Godslayers, Lightning Bearers, Warbringers, Warriors of Peace and The Fire Keepers

Distrusted Allies with the Grave Stalkers, Void Eagles, Stygian Jackals and The Drowned

By Order! with the Berserkers of Uran

The creamy isn't that bad honestly.

What do you mean it doesn't do white: that chest Imperialis is white!

 

I'm afraid that white in light gold won't provide much contrast, I'd go with a much darker gold if I were you.

I like the gold and bone combo I'd say keep it light; what if for contrast their markings were in a rich cobalt or ultramarine blue? That would really pop.

From what I remember, I would suggest that they were distrusted allies with the Predators as well.

 

And well done. I like your color scheme. :tu:

 

Only the dark blue eyes won't fit for me. Maybe ice blue? Or fenrisian blue?

That same option just gives grey armour.

Not proper ones, unless you count the RoW I put in Vyrn's special rules. I'll screw around with some ideas at work tomorrow.

"Eden is not a place. Eden is the promise that was wrenched from our hands by the Age of Strife, and it is what we have fought to build for humanity ever since. You laughed at that, and now you tear apart everything we fought for. All you have done is prove that you were never worthy to lead us, and even if you win, all that will be left for you is to languish in the ruins of Mankind's dreams, with nothing left to kill. The Ashen King indeed."

Hmmm, it is a rule or better a rite of war for the Wardens, but maybe similar.

No needless slaughter: If the Shepards decline a challenge, they don't suffer from any negative sideeffect. Maybe it could be something like that

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

Well the wardens exist longer ;)

But it is for the whole wardens a rite of war limiting assault units. So that doesn't necessarily conflict with each other.

Here is the rite of war:
Paragonof peace/ peace of light/ light of peace: The Wardens of Light don't have to accept and challenger nor can they chLlenge an enemy unit/Character. They gain stubborn and don't suffer the negative side effects for declining a challenge. (For Every unit not involved in CC you gain a VP. For Every unit who was involved you lose 1vp)

I thought of adding a restriction to assault units to give it some extra beef^^

I'm gonna turn their old RoW into their Legion rules. I'll add more in a couple of hours.
