The Eternal Sentinels Space Marines Chapter

Origins
The Eternal Sentinels are a Chapter of the 23rd Founding, created in order to better patrol the Ultima Segmentum from threats both without and within. Their gene-fathers are of the Imperial Fists, and prior to their participation in the Baltus Crusade they were a fleet-based chapter. 

Home World/Homeworld
The homeworld of the Eternal Sentinels, Idajoleti, is a hive world with a hot climate, with the average temperature being 38°C, reaching up to 70°C in the summers. In response, the people of the planet, the tribal Arobruans, have developed darker skin and use

It's a small start, but keep that momentum going if you want to get that gold.

 

Going by the name, emblem, founding and origins, it sounds like you're setting the Chapter up to stand guard over lands reclaimed from the Orks. As usual, I'm interested in what kind of Chapter culture that is developed.

The "Chapter Origins" part caught my eye. You say they were tasked with clearing and securing worlds during a Crusade. It's not a bad idea but Space Marines are usually wielded like a scalpel, used to decapitate the enemy leadership or strike key strategic targets. They are a rare and precious "resource". Taking and holding ground is usually the task of the Imperial Guard, so it would be great to know more about why they received that task. Perhaps a young Imperial Commander who misused the Chapter's strength and power, with the Chapter not saying anything because they were still young and fresh? Also, was this Chapter created specifically to be a part of this Crusade?

 

Anyway, good luck with creating your IA. :tu:

The battle cry is interesting. What ideas for their beliefs do you have, which must have influenced it?

Please God-Emperor/Chaos Gods, make these Sentinals reminiscent of loyalists Death Guard. I implore you to at least indulge the Death Guard aesthetics. I'm sure fellow B&C fans can agree how awesome they were. Not only that, any mutants or heretics would endure a catastrophic outbreak of browning trousers in their ranks... Officers included. Err, I know if I met Death Guard Astartes, I would have a case of Brown Trousers. Hehe

Well let's see.
First off, I wanted them to be influenced by Yuroban culture. It's my tribe and I've wanted to do something with it for a long time now.

Second, I wanted to have a chapter with a strong mythology, of ancestor spirits and blessed weapons, and through the warp making such things reality.

Lastly, I wanted a chapter that represented sort of the "Old Guard" of the Astartes, those that still have the mindset of a legion.

An emphasis on psykers might be something of interest. The Lexicanum provides a list of Chapter exclusive abilities; maybe do the same for your Sentinals. Different abilities might affect munitions or lengthen the teeth on chainswords. Yea, sounds like corny video game buffs but it's a start. Relic/Older weapons in the hands of a Librarian becomes that much dangerous... Or carve some runes into them. 

"Not only does this flamer fire promethium but a mystical Warp promethium that corrodes ceramite."

Hmm... No one has really done too much on relic weapons, and though I can understand it might appear snowflakey, the concept of "Blessed Weapons" with obscure abilities is nifty. There's a lot to build from that if you haven't already thought of it.

Hope this jogs the creative juices a smidgen, good sir!

I don't think Temperatures should reach 70.
Imagine a Hive, full of smoke, no ventilation, made of metals under a 70° heat.
They would be in a oven cooking.
