So first, what do you think of the name?
The Forgotten Sons – kind of has an ominous feel/sound to it I think. I did consider “The Forgotten Blood-brothers” but I felt it was a bit too long and cheesy. I’m open to suggestions.
I want to build, paint and come up with a back story for my own Space Marine Chapter. I’ve looked at just buying the already established chapters but to be honest none grab me 100%.
There are elements of each that I like and I’ve seen some amazing paint work done over the web of course but I like the idea of my own Chapter.
The army is purely a conceptual idea at this stage and I have not purchase a single model for it
Primarch: Alleged to be Magnus the Red, not confirmed.
Home: An overly populated planetary system in the southern region of Esseron IV.
Beliefs: They are direct descendants from the Emperor. They also believe Psykers are heretics.
Tactics: Attack with a small force from the front. If necessary allow the forward assaulting team to be destroyed to instill false hope and victory into the enemy then Attack with main the force from left and right flanks.
Battle cry: Glory in Victory, Glory in Death.
Extra info: The Forgotten Sons are renowned for their many victories but the stories of battle are often untold due to how bloodthirsty they can be. Some say they bathe in the blood of their fallen enemies after battle and even devour the dead flesh. Other rumours are that they will wear, not only the armour of their foes as trophies but also their skins, bones and skulls. They are skilled in combat but fight like unruly savages. They are also known for customising their weapons and war-gear.
Colour Scheme: TBA
For their overall look i’m thinking a mic of 30 and 40k.
This is all I have so far. Some advice, actually some guidance would be appreciated. Please note that I am not interested in Codexes, rules etc.
