Well maces were invented for such a purpose. Why bother trying to pierce armor when you can just comcuss the head or break the bones Inside?

Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

My thoughts exactly! Hammers, Fists, and mauls for my boys with the odd sword at squad sergeant level.

"Advantage through misdirection is not dishonorable. It is strategic. It is adaptive. It is war. Gain the advantage over your enemy, step closer to victory in His name. For the honor of your Chapter, you will seek the advantage."

--Vigilator Drakkert during his holo-presentation to newly assigned battle group commanders.

--------------------------------



Work in progress update for the Vigilators.

Veterans of the First Company they accompany large gatherings of Malevolents for dual purpose; to offer their wealth of combat knowledge and to ensure that all brother-marines are complying with Chapter mandate, called Watchdogs by the frater familiar of the Chapter. These are members of the Fighting Fourth veteran attack squad (Bladeguard Veteran rules). Veteran Sergeant Toareg and his FF will act as body guard to Force Commander Ghor'Hatan.

The MK6 Vigilator's shock maul will be on a sling around the wrist as he draws his pistol for the old sneaky gut shot. This will be done with green stuff at the time I set to battle damage on the shield.

"Frater Lupus, Miles Sanguine, Ungaro Tigris? You will see other-seed among our ranks. It matters not, we not hold contempt, quest-aff. We find them or they find us, matters not. Court-martial under seed-oath found them loyal and so they have option. Enlist or exile to deep void. Most choose enlist and become Frater Malus. You see, they understand as we understand, only the pure serve Him truly. No matter the stain of their Chapter, their creed, their seed. They serve as we do, and that is enough. After all, he will sort our souls at the end. I shepard them until such time. Vis Sanctimonia, frater."

-- Chaplain-Aspirant Brakka, Veteran Sergeant of Assault Squad Sabre, addressing newly recruited initiates of the Chapter on why certain members of the Battle-groups assault echelon bear other Chapters insignia upon their war plate.

--------------------------------



Work in progress update for Assault Squad Sabre (Veteran Intercessor rules). This one I'm excited to paint when it is time. I figured what better way to continue my theme than to sprinkle some unique Brothers. This assault squad is comprised of veteran Malevolents and their adopted frater from Lost Chapters they have picked up in their travels.

Thank you Triszin, I try to make every Marine unique. I think the last time I used stock pose Marines or unedited ones was circa 2003!

At that is why I am doing what I do Elzender! To me it makes no sense for the way they were written. They've been around since M32 and the only info we have are a bunch of books where they are a 2d villain trope. There has to be reasons why they act the way they do so I am attempting to breath some life into their background that makes them more than the sum of Nick Kimes fall guy.

Love tge idea that the MM would be willing to accept loyal orphans from disgraced chapters, it’s briliant!

The only issue I see here is the choice of Wolf Brothers… The chapter had already disappeared by M32 (according to the novel Battle of the Fang), so a survivor in the “current” era would be unlikely, no?

I had considered leaving the WB off but when I take into account the cryo-statis practices of the Chapter (atleast that I have made head-canon) they could have very well picked up the sole survivor of a combat squad in the aftermath of the WBs ultimately demise.

I figure both being from M32 and having statis vaults is believable enough.

Better than time travel warp shenanigans at the very least!

"They find me in underhive, a thousand eyes. Nidhogg surrounded me. Move, shoot, move, shoot, three days! Ehhh...is okay. Why? Because Nidhogg no expect to get punched, eh?"

-- Sergeant Haagr swapping monestary stories with frater from another battlegroup. Fondly patting his Tang pattern power glove, he spoke late into the simulated night cycle aboard the cruiser, regaling his cousins with tales of Tyranid encounters.

@Pearson73 - Soooooon

So it looks like, thanks to the points changes, I have enough points in my planned 3k to upgrade my troop officers from swords to FISTS.

A staple of my old force, I am a sucker for a good power glove.

I love how Sergeant Haaz, despite having a Power fist on his left hand, has decided to punch whatever he's facing with his non-powered hand, his target does not deserve a quick end 😄

Thanks! I never liked the fist but needed to use it and figured a good way would be to make it spicy would be to slap a chain bayonet on it!

Oh absolutely! I was like Haaz is the kind of guy to throw down with some fisticuffs! Play with his foe before going in for the old one two falcon punch.

I really like the use of the Chain Bayonet on the fist.  I'll have to consider that for my future Terminators.


Consider away! It fits nicely with a very slight trim to the curvature of the fist.

The Disagreement would follow Sergeant Chono and Combat Squad Jackal throughout the centuries. Seen as the instigator for reform during the 34th Millenium, Chono made a resolute promise to remain with his frater on the front lines. Offered promotion time and again he respectfully refused with each commendation. He even sought the assistance of the Reclusium to deter Chapter Command from thrusting more recommendations for career advancement his way. He could very well have had his own battle company. Yet, that would take him away from the bonds forged in Aeldari blood. Seed-claim has been documented and CS-JKL will remain embedded within the force familiar aboard the Purgatorum, under command of Chono until death take him or he is replaced.

Another, Black Library established, option could be a sus-an coma, floating in the void of space, where the chapter happened upon him.
Either way, pretty cool :tu:

@Grotsmasha there is that! Wouldn't be the first time a sus-an coma has popped up!


++UPDATE++

Regrettably, well, not really, the time has come to close the door on this thread. I really enjoyed my work on the Marines Malevolent years back and whilst I have been enjoying the revival something just didn't feel right.

I want change. I want something new. I thought I would do that by molding the Malevolent's into my own view but I came to the decision that was not truly faithful to the vision in my head.

And so, this thread is over. Come to end as all things do.

All the models here in will still be used. Some will be updated to match my new vision. It's finally time I cut loose from the ties that bind and forge my own narrative among the stars.

Your eyes should stay peeled in the WIP forum for from beyond the rim comes something implacable, something ancient, something insidious.

Those who stride the void, battling the nameless horrors of deep space, those who work without end to secure the border of the Imperium. The sons of the darkness bring a unique brand of terror to the outer worlds.

The Lacunae bring the horizon.
