Predictions and prophecies speak of a rise in Chaos and Warp activity. Ever-watchful for signs of the Arch-Enemy, the Chapter Master of the Imperial Fists has decreed that his Chapter must bolster its strength to counter the upcoming threat. All battle-brothers have been recalled to the Phalanx to re-arm and prepare for the onslaught. New aspirants have been recruited in the hope that a number of them will complete the full transformation into an Astartes to replace losses caused by the upcoming conflicts. The Techmarines and their Servitors aboard Chapter Forge-Ships work ceaselessly to repair damaged wargear and produce new materials of war. The Chapter Ancients are being roused to better aid their Chapter with their extensive wisdom and knowledge in warfare. The Chaplains, deep within the Reclusiam, prepare their sermons and most holy relics. The Librarians steel their minds against the predations of thw Warp, expecting the surge of malefic psychic activity. The line Astartes, each confined for a short time to their hab-cells, reflect upon the upcoming war effort, each Battle-Brother with vows to their Primarch and the Emperor of Mankind upon their lips.

And yet, despite the martial prowess of the Astartes under his command and the great war machines that he has at his disposal, the Chapter Master, ever concious of the Legions of Chaos that lie in wait within the Great Eye, has sent out astropathic hails far out into the galaxy, attempting to reach the ears of the other Chapters who claim to be of the great line of Dorn.

The Crimson Fists, Celestial Lions, Excoriators, Executioners, Subjugators, Iron Knights, and even the renegade Soul Drinkers, have been contacted to send their own Battle-Brothers to fight back their traitorous brethren and corrupted followers.

After many months of preparation, hundreds of fully armoured Battle-Brothers assemble in the Great Hall aboard the Phalanx, before the Chapter Master of the Imperial Fists. The thousand voices all shout the same words, loud and clear, in defiance to the Warp-filth that spills forth from the Immaterium:

"For Dorn and the Emperor!"

In the spirit of the Liber, and with a nod from Dosjetka for it, I'd like to extend an invitation to any Liberite and any B&C member to make a concept for a Chapter. Obviously it'll have to be related to the Fists somehow. Keep it light, ladies and gents - two or three paragraphs and a smattering of other select information will do nicely. You know, something that you can bash together in an evening. msn-wink.gif

 

As can be expected, I'll go first, seeing that I am calling to you all to pitch in for fun. 

 

Seventh Sons

Chapter symbol - Debased Rod of Asclepius
 
Hidden Content
 
The Seventh Sons, long known as a Chapter obsessed with the occult, is in secret a puppet of the Ordo Hereticus. Or, more accurately, a puppet of a select proportion of the Ordo Hereticus. The Seventh Sons descend from the Imperial Fists, with their first Chapter Master selected from their primogenitor via the Imperial Tarot - the impetuous and grudge-bearing reserve-company captain, Ignatio Losque. Hailing from the twenty-fourth founding, the Seventh Sons feel they have much to prove, compared to their elder brethren.
 
Although not specifically crafted with cooperation with the Ordo Hereticus in mind, the relationship between the two has become increasingly tied over the centuries despite regular usage of mind-wipes and the disappearance of brothers never to be seen again. The Seventh Sons themselves place a great importance in prognostication, telepathy and protection from the warp - in turn leading to an elevation of importance of the Chapter's Librarians, even if they do not appear to have any more or any less than other Chapters.
 
Chaplains of the Seventh Sons, long relied on for their strength of will and absolute judgement, brook no argument when they administer the harshest of punishments for all but the lightest of infractions. Flaying, acid baths and nerve-scouring are par for the course in the Seventh Sons, many of whom suffer in silence, long convinced of the benefits for their immortal souls that these disciplinary actions are. Perhaps this attitude of penance and stoicism has been inherited from their parent Chapter. Or perhaps it has been instilled over the decades and centuries of unswerving service alongside the shadowy Inquisition.

Stone Praetors

 

gallery_45765_5904_17927.jpg

Battle-Brother Aram, 3rd Tactical, 5th Company

 

The Stone Praetors, scions of the tragically famous Astral Knights Chapter, take the concept of stoicism to a new level even among other successors of the VIIth Legion. Choosing to never remove their helms outside the walls of the Fortress-Monastery on Slania, gauging a Stone Praetor's emotional response is an impossible task for many. Trained from their first days as neophytes within the Chapter to display neutral body language, deliver their words in a flat, emotionless tone, and to even partially shield their minds from outside intrusion, it is their belief that to show emotion is to show weakness. And weakness among the Emperor's Astartes is an unthinkable thing. Even when confronted with the destruction of their parent Chapter, the Praetors simply nodded to acknowledge the news and continued their duties... something the Imperial envoy sent to Slania found profoundly disturbing.

 

Favouring armoured warfare above other forms, the Praetors' forges have received the Adeptus Mechanicus' authorisation to manufacture their own vehicles based on the venerable Rhino STC and so enjoy a degree of independence and autonomy that is rare among other Chapters. However, in return for this favour, the Chapter must have a full Battle-Company at the disposal of the Lords Ku'Avakirina, rulers of Forge World Hesin, at all times and never question their mission parameters while under their command. This has caused friction and disagreement in the past between Captains of the 5th Company and the Lords Ku'Avakirina but such matter have always been resolved without bloodshed.

Why not? Here’s one I came up with the name years ago but never fleshed them out!

The Paladins of Dercia

sm4.jpg

The Paladins of Dercia are named for their homeworld, itself renamed in M.38 by the newly formed Chapter in honour of Captain Markus Dercius of the Imperial Fists. It has ever been the claim of the Chapter’s warriors that the original sample of gene-seed used to create their own was that of the hero Dercius himself, who had fallen in battle less than a century before while fighting against the Despoiler’s 8th Black Crusade. Dercia is a Feudal World in the Segmentum Pacificus with a strong knightly tradition and the Chapter is deeply influenced by this culture.

For example, the nobility of Dercia have ever been much concerned with the purity of their lineage. While the Chapter cares not for whether their recruits were born into the proper family, they have taken careful note of the genetic lines of descent within the Chapter. Remarkably, any Paladin can trace the gene-seed he carries back through many honoured bearers to one of the original 1,000 warriors that formed the Chapter and beyond them to Dercius and the Primarch Rogal Dorn himself.

The Knight Brethren of the Chapter are also keenly aware of the individual honour of personally fighting for the Emperor and few would be willing to forego such. Therefore the vast majority of the Chapter’s vehicles, transports and ships are instead crewed by Chapter serfs (albeit highly augmented ones).

The Paladins spurn the use of underhanded tactics, preferring to face an enemy openly on the field of battle. The Chapter will never use camouflage and Neophytes are assigned immediately to one of the Reserve Companies without serving as Scouts. However, respect for the Codex Astartes does incline the Chapter to maintain a 10th Company but the body of this force is again comprised of experienced Chapter serfs.

Hmm it has been a while. I wonder what Astartes heraldry schemes I have at my disposal to make a Dorn descended Chapter...

Here we go, it's been some time. -cracks knuckles and dusts off the keyboard-

 

The Demolishers:

 

gallery_26154_1503_134576.jpg

 

Founding: 5th

Parent Chapter: White Templars

Homeworld: Nihil

 

A Chapter built around the singular purpose of the absolute eradication of any enemy of the Imperium to ensure it does not return to threaten the Emperor's domain again, the Demolishers are the descendants of the Black Templars and carry the same fiery, righteous zeal of their ancestry.

 

Convinced in their actions being the will of the Emperor and his judgement to those who disobey His will or whose existence is intolerable, the Demolishers rely on utilising their most powerful ordnance to wipe clean any stain of Xenos, Daemon of Heretic from the battlefield and beyond. Their destructive method of warfare has led to the Chapter being censured by the Inquisition for the amount of collateral damage caused in their warfare over the Millennia, and have earned the contempt of various Chapters within the region they perform their duties as a result.

 

The Demolishers are armed with a deep variety of heavy weaponry, both vehicular and hand-held. A common source of strategy for the sons of Nihil is to charge headlong into an enemy force aboard their transports underneath a devastating raining bombardment from their ships and tanks. Since the latter half of the 34th Millennium, the Demolishers have kept an oath of allegiance and immediate aid to the Inquisition's agents within the Tarranis Region. To date they have aided in the purging of tainted worlds and the partial destruction of a wayward Chapter of Astartes, whose records have long since been lost. Though rumoured to wield the long-sanctioned weaponry that Destroyer squads wielded, from the black time of the Horus Heresy against more entrenched and tenacious foes, evidence of such weaponry being found in the armory of the Demolishers is yet to have been discovered upon inspection.

There we go, not my best, but back in the saddle slightly.
