The details on 6th Company are grim and, sadly, quite appropriate for the setting of 'Warhammer 40,000'.

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)
Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

1 The Royal Martyrs rarely play host to honored guests, who in any event do not participate in the events, but are simply announced first and given a seat of honor to view the proceedings. The only people that regularly appear as honored guests at the chapter's events are the chapter's Navigators.
2 The Royal Martyrs rarely awaken their dreadnoughts (they possess only three of them), even for the most solemn occasions, preferring to let their brothers rest. A request from a high ranking honored guest, such as a sector governor or one of the High Lords, to review the dreadnoughts, is about the only time other than for battle that they will rouse them.
3 Hereditary serfs never take part in large ceremonies of the Royal Martyrs; much like dreadnoughts, they will only take part if a high ranking guest requests that they be present at the ceremony.
+ Election of the Chapter Master and Appointment of Officers +
When a chapter master of the Royal Martyrs dies, at the earliest opportunity, a new Chapter Master is elected by the following electors: The Master of Sanctity, the Master of the Apothecarion, the Chief Librarian, the Master of the Fleet, the Master of the Armory, and the Captains of the 10 companies. Only one vote is taken, and a candidate is elected by simply receiving the most votes. It is therefore possible for someone to be elected Chapter Master without receiving the the majority of the votes. If there should be any kind of tie among leading candidates, the Ordinator of the House is permitted to cast the tie-breaking vote. Votes are cast in secret, but revealed at the end of the process.
Almost any full battle-brother or higher is technically eligible to be elected Chapter Master. The most common candidates for election to Chapter Master, in order from most likely to be elected to least likely to be elected, is as follows: 1st Company Captain, Master of the Fleet, most other company Captains, the chapter Champion, most other members of the chapter, the 10th company Captain, the Master of Sanctity, the Master of the Apothecarion, and finally the Chief Librarian. Techmarines are barred from the position of Chapter Master.
The Chapter Master directly makes all appointments to the chapter's officer class (rank 13 and higher on the precedence list) except for the Reclusiarch. He also selects new members of the chapter's honor guard. Other positions are usually filled by their officer superiors, though the Chapter Master does have the right to veto any such decision. Specialist commands work closely with the 10th Company Captain and the Chapter Master to identify candidates among the recruits who show promise in the specialist fields; only the Chapter Master can officially allow training as a specialist to commence. Specialist commanders discuss with company Captains and the Chapter Master which members of their command would be best assigned to a particular company when a vacancy comes up; as always the Chapter Master makes the final decision. Though specialist Marines can technically be reassigned, it is chapter tradition that once appointed to a company, they remain there for life. Apprentice specialists, when they need field training, are temporarily assigned to any of the 10 companies as needed by the agreement of their commanders and the company's Captain. Usually the Chapter Master is not bothered with such minor details, but he does have the authority to block such a decision if he finds out about it.
+ Methods of Address +
Hereditary serfs and neophytes of the chapter are usually simply called by their first names. Scout Marines are also either called solely by their first names or sometimes their title "Scout <first name>"
Battle-brothers and Vowed Serfs are formally addressed as Frère <First Name> ( or Brother <First Name>), though this can be shortened simply to the title without insult. Sergeants, champions, and specialists are addressed as Frère-(rank) <First Name>, which can similarly be shortened to just the title. For example: Frère-Epistolary Lance or just Frère-Epistolary,
Officers of the chapter (rank 13 and above in the order of precedence) are addressed directly as monsieur ( or my lord) by their subordinates. When referred to in the third person either their whole titles are used or the word Master. An example would be "I was speaking with Master Guénolé yesterday, and he said that you should spend more time reading the Life of Saint Trask. After you are done, he asked that you give the dataslate to Master Jagaddeva." The exception to this is the company captains; there the word master is replaced with captain when speaking about them in the third person; e.g. "Captain Michelin is out on campaign in subsector Brahe."
