Deathwatch Custom Chapters
Table of Content
Further to our little session this wednesday of creating some custom chapters for eventual Deathwatch use, I've whipped up a couple of basic colourscheme concepts.

Iconography


Crimson Eagles, Star Wolves and Thunder Fists respectively.

Hopefully sometime this weekend, Andy may be able to post some further details on them, so they are here for the record, but the above at least gives a breif idea from memory.
Fan-Favourites on the day were the Swashbuckling, robo-horse-riding Space Hawks (with their significant tank support) and the slightly devolved, flesh eating, sunglasses wearing rulers of their urban feral world; the renegade Star Wolves. Hopefully the above does them justice.

[edit] Second Founding chapters added.
Favourite bits on the day were the Crab-Riding Subterainian hive dwelling Thunderfists and their figure of Legend "Lucky Seben" (of the Dark Angels 7th Company, 7th Squad) who definately wore his moustache like Tom Seleck and the Silver Owls who are Good Doctors and Have a Plan.

As well as the above which certainly generates some very nice art work there are rules for building Custom chapters for the RPG in



The Rites Of Battle

& The rules for all the First founding chapters not to be found in the main rule book & the Rites of battle are to be found here



The First Founding.

Though it should be noted that if you follow the guidelines in Rites of battle home brew chapters are a little weaker than the ones written into the official background but just as colourful & potentially interesting to play.

That's where these came from, actually. Rites of Battle, all randomly rolled except for the Star Wolves.

Very Cool would love to play Deathwatch as opposed to running it I dont get to play enough  Sad I posted those by way of useful information to those who did not know. If you post the details I would gladly include them as options for my players in the Current Deathwatch game as they are likely to be needing a new character or four at the rate they are going.

Andy has the details. Hopefully he'll get chance to post them in a few days. From there, I half plan to flesh them out with further written detail and so on.
It's a system that I am interested in running eventually, but preferably after I've had chance to play in it first. Smiley

Space Hawks Primarch's curse now also in place, along with the Crimson Eagles and Night Dragons.
That means I can soon start on the "Second Founding" Chapters.

Which I have now made a start on, we have proposed colourschemes added to the first post there.
The irony being of course, that for players 90% of it gets painted over upon joining the Deathwatch, but there we go. I feel it's as good a place to start as any, if nothing else.

Perhaps eventually I'll go back over and do more Logo's for the rest of them, as only Star-Wolves have one so-far. I'll leave that on a back-burner for now though, unless anyone has any particularly good ideas or really wants to see a certain chapter done.

Thunder Fists are now mostly done. All that's left to do is design their Chapter Trappings and Primarch's Curse, so I'm adding them to the links at the top of the chapters I've posted.

Thunder Fists are finally complete. That just leaves the Vermillion Wasps to write up.
