"You are the will of the Emperor. You are the bitter hate of the Lord Commander. You are the fire that the Primogenitors keep close, unleashed upon the enemy. You are the quick blade, the sniper's shot, the hidden hunters. You are the Riven- and worlds will tremble beneath your feet." - Commander Morrigar (later Chapter Master Morrigar), at the battle of Novus Neptu

Summary of Chapter-
The Riven are an Ultima Founding chapter, comprised entirely of Primaris Space Marines. Presumed to be descended from the Ultramarines (records are inconclusive/corrupted), the Riven have fought alongside the Ultramarines throughout the Indomitus Crusade. The chapter specializes in urban combat, sending out first wave attacks comprised of infiltrators and saboteurs to destabilize and destroy enemy command posts and defensive emplacements. After the first wave has accomplished its goals, the second wave descends on the target. Infantry-heavy attacks are lead by melee specialist and backed by marine-portable heavy weaponry.

The Riven have shown some variance in codex structure, though not enough to be considered fully divergent. Their companies utilize Vanguard specialists in an equal ratio to traditional infantry squads like Intercessors. The Riven's heavy armour is limited (note- possible issues with Mechanicus?), so their heavier weaponry is generally regulated to squads such as Eradicators, Aggressors, and light vehicles such as the Invader ATV.

In keeping with their long associations with the Ultramarines, many members of the Riven have received Ultramarine honour badges and commendations. The Riven also contribute to the legendary Victrix Guard of the Ultramarines, sending off the finest members of their veteran honour guard to serve with their brother chapter.

"The Breaker lead us. Normal men, fighting side by side with the Emperor's warriors! Deadly he was, crushing the traitors' tanks and shooting down the cultist rabble. Never seen such a mighty warrior." Guardsman Liv Stillen, 12th Morr PDF, battle of Morr Secundus

1st Company Lieutenant (Bladeguard) Edvar Locatum
"A superb swordsman, Locatum is in charge of the 1st Company's Bladeguard contingent. Having specifically requested them for my mission on Requiem, I was well pleased with their performance. In fact, I doubt that I would be alive to send this report without the intervention of their skills against the Aeldari foe." Inquisitor Uli Reven

Since I finished off all of my current Haunted Legions of Sarkon Necrons, I now have time to start painting up the Riven. Got quite a bit to paint before the US Imperium starts up- 2 Chaplains, 15 Intercessors, 11 Assault Intercessors, 1 Apothecary, 1 Judicar, 1 Bladeguard Ancient, 6 Bladeguard, 3 Inceptors, 3 Eliminators, 1 Redemptor. Looking to paint at least a couple squads and a character each month, want to get all of this done before Jan, so that I can start up Imperium fresh- the plan for that is since I'm getting the mailed subscription, I'll get all four issues at the same time and I'll try to paint all of the contents (Necron and SM, going to sell off the SoB/AdMech/Terrain) before the next month's subscription gets in.

 

Anyway, here's the first installment of the Riven.

 

 

Eradicators squads Terco and Illuminis

The backbone of anti-vehicle weaponry for the Riven, Eradicator squads are common in all Riven taskforces.

Intercessor Squad Gias

Intercessors armed with assault-pattern bolt rifles are used frequently by the Riven for their speed and firepower.
