Lovely looking stuff – particularly nice to see a Void Baron. Do you picture the Inquisitor falling on the side of the Partisans or Orthodoxy?

Thanks, pulling off the Orange and blue is nice change of pace but harder than it first looks :P

I started the Inquisitor when I came upon your outline in spring and initially thought to make it the fulcrum for an Ordo Astartes killteam ,so I thought  about  bringing the hazard striping into the heraldry

(…I have rough draft of him  being rather taken aback  by the Diet of Fools  . .. and  since I haven’t painted any Marines for the Orthodoxy yet and have a Void Baron in the works… there might be story developing here ;)

We have been able to find little of interest here, what force ever broke the wall of this Chapter Keep did take their time to destroy the archives, possibly after confiscating some of it, the amount of destroyed data-holders are a bit too small for the size of the archive. They were brutal in their advance and what they did not fully destroy age have taken its tole on.
This picture is one of the few that we have been able to get out from what we found, the lack of colour thanks to the damaged data container. We believe it’s showing a Kill Team, and the information that we got out together with the picture indicated that its members are representatives of the Chapters: Dark Paladins (3f/?:gs), Soul Drinkers (2f/IF:gs); Raptors (2f/RG:gs); Sons of Jaghatai (?f/WS:gs); Nemesis (2f/Um:gs)
Is this the earliest appearance we have found of the Sons of Jaghatai?
As I send this we do not know if the Kill Team were of the Vigilantes or of the Marines Mendicant. I hope this will have changed when I send my next report.

"Caradoc. Oh, fabled son of Harkonath. Prideful, bitter, remorseless. An icy dread took my heart when Caradoc chose to follow Morhalt beyond the Gate and into the arms of the Abomination. I feared he was taken with the sickness. That dread faded with his actions. Caradoc strode from the fires of heresy tested, as we all were, but not found wanting. Returning to our side he came bathed in the blood of his own wretched frater, his gauntlets baring the red soul-stain of our ancestors and not that of the Gilded. By Lancelors account he slew two of his brethren in single combat whilst my subordinate faced down the teeth-taker. An excellent addition to our ranks we have salvaged in Caradoc. Perhaps I shall grant him the Harrowers mantel of his one-time superior...or maybe I will pull his head from his shoulders and devor his brain to discover if the sickness lies within."

Interrogation file Cavus/witness/traitor-Joakim
 
-Video file shows subject bolted to a chair. Mortal, appearing to be 30 years old-
 
“We’d been cut off for weeks. Hunted down one by one. Red terrors stalking in the dark. We lived and died, there was no time for goodbye. If they caught us, they ate us. The memory of the fallen still lives on. These horrors in the night. All because a lost Son had returned. They couldn’t stand it, they didn’t believe it but it was true! Vol-
 
-Audio file breaks up through distortion and returns with the sound of subject screaming.-
 
“Tell me of Cavus, the Star Warden” a deeper voice asks.
 
“He came. That night. You don’t know. You weren’t there. We couldn’t hide from the red devils. They came from the depths of hell to eat our flesh. Firing their bolters, chainswords roaring in the night.”
 
-Subjects eyes go wild and drool forms on his lips-
 
“Cavus, Joakim. Tell me of Cavus”
 
“They’d cornered me. I saw them, murder in their eyes. They called me a traitor! He came. He fell like a black meteor. An angel of the Emperor in growling power armour. His eyes glowed red with righteous indignation. They turned with such speed but it was too late. He destroyed them. The emperor’s wrath incarnate, that’s Cavus. He vapourised the astartes in front of me, leaving two steaming boots. He saved my life. He looked at me, nodded and charged into the night.”

“The Caputmori. Detested symbol amongst those who called themselves partisan, whom we rightly and justly call traitor and heretic. Seen here held aloft as some form of icon or standard by a Star Warden astartes. This particular specimen is thought to be Jorg, of the Wicked Void Kill team. Jorg, along with Wicked Void were said to be first amongst the Vth Cadre of the Star Wardens, lead by Hennox, to encounter the Silver Stars, the so-called spawn of the abomination.
 
Prior to this meeting Wicked Void had encountered the noble and just Inquisitor +REDACTED and somehow killed them and their entire band, as well as capturing the +REDACTED. Shortly after these sad events for Imperium, Wicked Void encountered the troops of the Silver Stars. This of course was the spark that led to the Warden’s becoming traitors and heretics, a civil war amongst their own ranks, and Ultimately their complete and utter destruction at the hands of the Pentarchy.
 
“Jorg was known as a boisterous and charismatic Astartes, qualities rare amongst the Star Wardens. He was thought to have a close bond with Hennox, the leader of what became known as the Gilden, Gilden handed, or Golden hands, accounts of course, differ. This cadre of the Traitors supposedly wholeheartedly believed the abomination was their genefather. Their numbers swelled throughout the conflict before their destruction at the hands of their own kin, as is the fate of all traitors of course.”
 
“Sir, what happened to this Jorg?”
 
“That, interrogator, is a lesson for another day”

+++Welcome, Inquisitor+++
Aponius, leader of wicked void. Heretic, traitor, fool. Aponius had a somewhat glorious past before the war of the false primarch. Single handedly killing the mutant king Aleg-Jong-sssan, stopping the decade long mutant uprisings In Heliopolis Prime's underhive. Wicked Void were lauded as heroes by the planetary Governor before the war. Ironic then that Aponius would be decapitated in the spires of the capital city by a Flesh Eater Astartes.
Aponius carried the head of the mutant-king as a trophy, as well as an unknown and no doubt noble Astartes. Aponius power fist was of an unknown pattern, and treated as a relic by the Star Warden's. It was lost to the Warden's following the timely and just termination of Aponius.
Worn proudly on the chest is the heraldry of the Wormwood Son's. Records state that Wicked Void fought with their fellow vile brother-traitors on numerous occasions. Likely Aponius considered himself a battle brother to one of that rad-ridden chapter.
Of note perhaps is the personal heraldry, a single skull on the left shoulder pad. Cognitae-anaylisis suggests this may have orgitionally been a +Redacted+ legion shoulder pad, perhaps ceremoniously slighted or purposely disguised to hide it's origin. The effect this would have on the machine spirit of the MKiii plate that was forced to protect such a traitorous scum is unknown.
Would you like to know more inquistor?"

'Colloquially known as 'Knife-heads' by Orthodoxy forces, the Kadath Type 1 Infiltrator was typical of the Nihil Circulus Kill-Clades.

 
Almost entirely cybernetic, the cyborgs brain was installed in a heavy armoured black box, contained within the chest cavity. This gave veteran Infilitrators a significantly higher survival rate, allowing the brain casing to be installed in a new chassis, in the event of their destruction.
 
This also provided a psychological advantage, with many Orthodox troops reporting in horror as Infilitrators kept on fighting even with total destruction of the "head".'

“It was during the so called Sorrowful Years, that the Flesh Eaters regrouped. Commander Velghor continued sending out Kill Teams around Western Heliopolis to fulfill terror missions against the Abomination Unto Him’s forces and followers. One such Kill Team we’re the Jaws of Doom - never was a name so apt - a Third Co squad of Veterans led by the infamous Sergeant Gregor. Of Velghor himself, he appeared very little during this time for reasons known only to himself and his Chapter.”

" Forward with haste my Brothers, the human soldiers needs our help. The merciless sons of the Mor os upon them!"

Voxlog captured from first company lieutenant Milivoj - Battle of Hive Kurrogane, Pao Fung.
 
In the following pict we see five brothers of tactical squad Nimrit (led by Havildar Nimrit) during the Pao Fung campaign. Rajh Nimrit and the rest of squad Nimrit were, like a majority of the more experienced tactical squad of the Inheritors, clad in heresy era power armour models, who despite their old age functioned at a hundred percent capacity. This was due to the chapter's history, in which it for long periods of time was poorly supported and supplied. However, Magos genetor minoris Zaahl delta-3 postulated in his obscure treatise "Tractatus Haeredes", that this obsessive need to maintain their wargear and other materials to the point of near perfection, had its roots in a cultural (Hyberboryan) or genetic defect.
 
Addendum: Notice Brother-sowar Wadha wielding a Volkite caliver, a weapon rarely seen amongst the Inheritors and normally (pre war of the false primarch) reserved for xenocide warfare.
Addendum secundus: notice the none identifiable helmet variant worn by Jamadar (lieutenant) Milivoj. ++// -(statementvalue=untrue// - helmet pattern identified.Mk III Hyperboryan "Vaktra" pattern - value=true) - //++

"Yvain. Bastard. That was what we all knew him as. Cold. Brutal. An ooze. A tool and a bad one at that. He lacked all comradeship with his brethren and took subtle delight in gaining the ire of his kin. Naturally he would follow Morhalt to the very end, both of them rotten, their gene-seed unfit to return to our vaults. In fact it was Yvain who first posed the question to his dread-frater of the Abominations heritage. Our heritage. To call Yvain a true believer is false, he was not, he only believed in the egotism it brought; for it stoked his already inflated sense of self importance. Never did Yvain snap to heel and heed the call of his betters. Always did he saunter through the years believing himself equal to the rest of us. How could he be? He was born on a starch-barge. Plebian scum. It was no wonder he turned on his family. Destined to ever be a sword and never a shield for our Chapter, I am glad that Caradoc pummeled his skull to a fine paste inside his helm. May his corpse forever rot on the rad-wastes of Kharak Thirty-Three. I ordered the scav-corp to leave his war plate and armaments. I truly believe even the machine spirit that shrouded him was infected with his moist filth. Bah."

Thought I’d post some close up pics of the two new guys. Couple of things I’m pleased with on these guys. Love me some hazard stripes on a power fist, I wanted to reference the RT era Sgt with ‘God is dead’ written on his fist, I figure this is High Gothic for that phrase? Also I had a go at ‘reverse highlighting’ the plasma coils, which I think has come out quite well.

Here comes my Death Eagles.

 
I know they don't quite fit the #killthefalseprimarch theme, but I don't like the idea of them being to different chapters. So I have tried merging to to colour schemes into one, and also keeping it close to the presumed Emperors Children heritage.
 
For the War of the False Primarch I figure they can work as Death Eagles I in night operation battle dress.

from this Fb post: 

 

Danid gripped the lasgun tight, peering over the lip of the crater next to his squad mate. Expecting to spend most of his life peeling potatoes in the Cathedral kitchens, he had been overjoyed at being called up to the Frateris Templars, to fight the heretics who had invaded his planet. 

 
However, it had become apparent that he had been called up primarily because the proper soldiers had been killed in the stalemate. The heretics, those that he had seen, has looked at lot like him, and he had come across a body of the enemy festooned with prayer strips to the holy emperor. It all seemed pointless and futile to him. He’d heard whispers that the only reason they could hold was because the enemy were not prepared to use their copious munitions supply on bombardments which might damage the shrines. 
 
He saw movement, a red glow in the no mans land. Bringing his lasgun up to fire, he passed upon hearing chanting, prayers to the Emperor being extolled. It was enough to make him pause, fearing some ghastly mistake. It got louder, and the movement resolved into people, a miasma of chanting, singing and muttered prayers. They were dressed in rags, some seemingly penitent prisoners, arms in stocks and heads locked into metal helmets. Others were the ragged desperates that could be found on any street corner these days. 
 
It took him a moment to spot where the glow was coming from, and in the same horrifying moment realised they were carrying shells, grenades and other explosives, with detonators strapped to them, trailing wires through the mud and rubble behind them. He started firing, but it was too late, they were too close and in his panic, his fire went wide. 
 
He was conscious of a voice carrying powerfully over the battlefield, and recognised the sermon as ‘Lo the martyrs are blessed at the right hand of the emperor’. Then his world erupted into fire. 
 
+++
 
Missionary Benedictorius turned away from the carnage and unhooked the detonator from the nest of wires spread before him. It was, he thought, the perfect solution. While indirect shell fire could not be allowed, more could always be found to walk the path of the martyr. 
 
The armoured giants next to him changed from statue to shockingly rapid movement, charging towards the newly formed craters. 
 
Exploiting the line break, the Death Eagles kill team slammed into the command chapel. Small arms fire plinked off a boarding shield, return heavy bolter fire shredding the first defensive line. 
 
Then it was too late for any further meaningful defence, aerosolised blood drizzling like rain, thrown into the air from an enormous chain axe.  
 
One of the giants, carrying huge golden Aquila, paused before the Abbot Militarum, sprawled on the floor, leaking blood from a dozen wounds. 
 
“Your defiance of Arch-Divinatus Melilias makes you a heretic. So die all heretics.” 
 
The Abbots attempts to reply through the blood seeping through his mouth were cut short, his head exploding with a single bolt round.

My Death Eagles II kill team, counts as a chaos space marine team. I freehanded the symbol which I think you can see on a few photos, the rose of the pentarchy also makes a few appearances. I really enjoyed making and painting these, I’ve built one more but need to do two to be able to deploy just marines but work/life got in the way of getting them done. I think I posted my fluff for my Death Eagles II and their relationship with the ecclesiarchy but I’ll post it again in the comments if anyone can face reading that much!

'The Cardinal drags himself along the mosaic of the Emperor enthroned, staining it's marble surface with his blood and viscera. 

 
He sobs as he gazes at the eviscerated body of Tetrach Granulus, his magnificent purple robes blackened and scorched. The rest of the gathered Council of the Ecclesiarchy Militarum, lay dead, torn apart and burnt. 
 
Out of the darkness of the vaults they had come, silent and heralded by a caustic green glow. A silent massacre, as noise dampeners and voice eaters, turned screams and pleadings into empty howls.
 
The Cardinal finds himself at the feet of a giant cowled figure, it's sickle and blade dripping with his comrades blood. 
 
'Why?' he asks.
 
The cowled one leans down, removing it's hood.
 
'HAVE_YOU_SEEN_THEVOID_CARDINAL?'
 
Cardinal Mercissus continues to scream for the remaining 6.2 seconds of his existence..'

The Empty Hand undertook numerous deniable ops, attacking Orthodox research stations, Vigilant groups, Inquisitorial conclaves and even Ecclesiarchy Grand Choirs. Despite their infamy, their existence was never corroborated or confirmed by Kadath.

++Fire team Bodhi fighting their way off [REDACTED] - the Sorrowful years++

The Inheritors would occasionally deploy formations such as this during the course of the war, always at the behest of Decurion Kamakanei of the kapihe (Silver stars liaison to the Inheritors). Why these ad-hoc formations existed, and what exactly was their purpose could never be ascertained and remains clouded in mystery and obscure half-truths, as is so much that can be associated with the Silver stars.

Not the best photo but here we are, Kill Team Seraph, Marines Mendicant seen fighting on Frith. Once I get the chance I'll fix some of the details I've missed.

"Atmospheric impact in t-minus 30, all hands prep for insertion"

 
As the drop pod ripped through the air, lancing streams of anti-air fire rushed up to meet it, scouring great rifts in the dark sky. Inside, the pod's six occupants scanned through mission briefings and expected resistance numbers.
 
'Remember brothers, our primary target is this line of Generators, designation Omicron through Phi. Only after these have been destroyed and the defense turret network deactivated do we have permission to engage other priority targets.'
 
While his lack of lower jaw rendered him incapable of smiling, Sergeant Agum's one remaining eyebrow raised and twitched as he focused on each of the pod's other inhabitants in turn.
 
'This does not, however, mean that we will be ignoring any of our cousins we may encounter, after their acts against our wards.'
 
"IMPACT IMMINANT, PREPARE FOR IMMEDIATE DEPLOYMENT, BRACE BRACE BRACE"
 
The pod smashed into the earth, plumes of dirt and dust erupting skywards even as the doors swung down and a cry of vengance emerged from within:
 
"REMEMBER UL-HIYAR! 
FOR THE RED FISH,
FOR THE PRIMARCH!"

++IDENTTAG++

-Adeptus Astartes
-Angels of Ruin chapter
-Kill Team Orchid
+DATACOMPILED//VARIOUSSOURCES//+
Members of the Angels of Ruin space marine chapter who were repeatedly sighted engaging in various sabotage, espionage, abduction, assassination, and intelligence gathering operations during The Sorrowfull Years.
The identity of only a few of the marines can be confirmed as reliable first hand combat accounts are remarkably scarce. Very few other recorded Astartes combatants were confirmed alive after an engagement with the kill team, and only one mortal first hand account exists.
What can be confirmed is the wider chapters vow to uphold the Annulus Umbra, and previous combat records against elements of the Riven Lord's, Void Barons, and Frateris Templars. The latter being attributed to aggravated pilgrim fleets attempting to arrive, and forcibly bypass, the exclusion zone in the galactic north of the over all war theater. Their excuse being that they came to assist in "The Emperor's holy war" though none bore any clearance codes or writ of passage valid enough to enter.
The construction of Orchid was unorthodox as each member was selected from every one of the ten existing companies. While most other kill teams would be assembled from the marines at hand for short term deployments or single missions, Kill Team Orchid would remain as a cohesive unit for the duration of the war, after their first recorded appearance in abducting Baroness incumbent Issabella Norn and her retinue from the surface of [redacted] following a massacre as Partisan auxiliary forces also attempted to reach Norn. This would seal the reputation of the marines as brutally efficient, and in some cases malicious and sadistic, in their deployment of special issue war gear and nearly depraved means of mission completion. One example being the termination of friendly staff amongst an Adeptus Mechanicus retinue to simply "make room" for other captives the team had taken during that particular deployment.
Another horrible instance would be when the marines would be making an emergency extraction within an enemy strongpoint, only to seemingly abandon their primary targets and escape only with the masked and gagged concubine of their initial prey. In truth, the marines had planted a high explosive vest on one of their captives, who they willingly allowed to be taken from them only to detonate the payload once she had reached the safety of enemy hands. The other being that upon the discovery of the initial targets body, the recovery forces found out that the marines had switched the clothing of the captives and had escaped, disguising the primary target in the concubines clothes and simply killing the concubine in question as they ran to the extraction dropship.
These near heinous acts, as well as the highly selective nature of each kill team member has led to the speculation and near confrimation that each marine was hand selected by the commanding elements of the chapter to carry out these destabilizing missions. The blame most definitely resting on the shoulders of the current Chapter Master Gilgamesh, and advice from second company librarian Haderach, an uncompromising, brutal force to be dealt with during the war.
Of the seven kill team members present, only four have been positively cross referenced and subsequently identified within existing chapter records.
-Sergeant Horace
Overall squad command was delegated to this individual and was recognized through various command responses issued along with wearing a complete set of mk4B pattern power armour. Previous records indicate he would have hailed from the chapters ninth company.
-Champion Malzek
Identified due to the multiple Deathwatch honors the marine possessed. Previous records indicate four separate vigils within the xenos hunters, all with high praise from the watch masters who deployed him.
-Battle Brother Azzir
Identified through the marines own admission, brother Azzir was recorded present during the Void Baron's assassination of Force Commander Mallum directly before the beginning of The Sorrowfull Years. Azzir would make no attempt to hide himself, and actively issued and accepted challenges from other astartes elements who the squad came to trade blows with. This behavior was in stark contrast to the deployments the kill team found themselves in, but never the less proved a formidable fighter and boon when operations began to devolve. Previous records indicate deployment within the fourth company, note various honor marks and battle prayers adorn the armour and weapons of this marine more than his comrades in the kill team. Unsettling among these was the red blood drop, a campaign mark that more and more marines of the chapter would adopt as they fully entered the wider conflict along side the Pentarchy of Blood, as a sign of respect for their five cousin chapters.
-Battle Brother Ustanak
Identified as the kill teams fire support specialist, Ustanak was also one of only two members not outfitted with mk4B pattern power armour. The other individual being the team's sharpshooter clad in mk6 "Corvus" armour. Previous records would indicate Ustanak being the youngest of the marines to be selected for the kill team at only 189 standard years old at the time of the war. Despite this he still wore veteran combat honors denoted by his helms face plate colour. His relative youth possibly being a reason why he was still wearing mk7 "Aquila" armour. Another reason sighted was the heavy damage and frequent repair his war gear would sustain through the nature of his choke point holding speciality.

“I know Posthuman dread when I see it, or 'Astartes Shock' to the layman. They're too big and too heavy to move the way they do, and oftentimes the brain just cant handle it. Doesn't help that an Astartes in combat aint the glorious sight the scripture leads you to believe...it's a brutality the kind that your mind rejects. Whoever this poor sod came up against, whatever horrors he’s witnessed… it has left him in a catatonia that he won’t recover from. Considering he is still able bodied… I’d recommend am immediate Servo-lobo op. It’d be a mercy really.”

Thanks to Paul Hudson for coming in clutch at the last minute and taking some photo's of my Marines Saturnine for the Kill the False Primarch Event. I'm so impressed by all the work everyone has done, and I'm even happier that I have gotten to take part in it as well!

Battle-Choir Theta had the dubious honour of being one of the few units to fight on both sides of the war.

 

Originally serving in Richephanes' shadow army, it was tasked with proving the existence and nature for the Ecclesiarch and the Holy Church of Terra. They were then assigned to Morgetheon's army on Sanctram and witnessed Verashyon's great betrayal. Holding the rear guard, they held the line long enough to allow Morgetheon to escape the Pentarchy's attack.
 
Only 12 men would survive.
 
Battle-Choir Theta was disbanded and the survivors were relogated to tertiary duties. However, after their role in stopping the first attempted assassination of Morgetheon, the Kill team was re-instated and ordered to proactively remove any threats to the Heliopolean Ecclesiarch's life before it arises.
 
This took them into the heart of the Pentarchy territory and there are a number of fragmentary reports of the Battle Choir's actions throughout the Sorrowful Years.
 
No one can say for sure whether any survived the War of the False Primarch though rumours speak of a veteran soldier wearing a black cowl in the employ of Inquisitor Archezoff some 79 years after the war who would speak after serveral rounds of amasec about witnessing a demi-god in action...
