Deathwatch Custom Chapters
Table of Content
Here is the official write up for the War Panthers Chapter (Primarch's Curse to be added later when I have thought of something suitable - ideas welcome)

War Panthers

The War Panthers were founded in the 35th Millennium by the Ultramarines as a fleet base chapter.  That could defend the western edge of Ultramar against attack from an anticipated Blu'killerz Ork Waaagh! Fleet.

The chapter creation was inspired by the actions of Battle-Brother Panthaerus of the Ultramarines who gathered a rag-tag fleet to drive off the first incursion of the Blu'killerz Ork clan. Panthaerus went on to be the acting Chapter Master of the War Panthers whilst they were being founded.

Battle Fleet Sentinel

The War Panthers have no home world to call their own instead they patrol the western boarder of Ultramar in their fleet of 10 ships (each vast battle ship), the fleet is known as Battle Fleet Sentinel.  The fleet is a companies by a myriad of Rogue Trader's ships, Imperial Navy warships and civilian supply ships.

The Nano-tek Heresy

In 701.M41 whilst investigating a Space Hulk that had been discovered adrift along their patrol path, a squad of Tech-Marines were infected by a nano-tek virus.  This virus silently spread through the other Tech-marines causing the majority of them to fall ill suddenly.  The fleets Apothecaries came to resolve this malady.  The tech-marines driven mad by the nano-virus attacked and killed most of the Apothecaries and many other Battle Brothers before dying them selves.  Leaving the chapter dramatically under strength with only a handful of surviving Tech-Marines and Apothecaries.

The Oath of Allegiance

In the wake of the Nano-tek heresy the Silver Owls chapter came to their aid sending a company of Apothecaries to help train a new generation of Apothecaries in the War Panthers.  A cadre of Tech-Priests from the Forge World of Tagus Primaris were sent to watch over the machine spirits of the War Panther fleet.

War Panther Characteristics

The War Panthers are resilient in both mind and body and received +5 to Toughness and +5 to Willpower.

War Panthers gain Pilot (Spacecraft) and Pilot (Flyers) as trained skills

As the War Panthers have very few Apothecaries and Tech-Marines they are no currently permitted to join Deathwatch (and may not be selected as specialties)

The Successors of Panthaerus: The demeanor for the War Panthers instills a sense of hope even in the direst of times they believe that their is a way to succeed, a way to pull together whatever limited resources they have and used them to gain victory.  A War Panthers' spirit is hard to crush and they look to raise the spirits of those around them.
