Default Marine chapter fluff-help with concepts

Hey. I'm having a difficult time deciding on my chapter fluff, so I decided to ask you guys.

Chapter Name-Archangels

Concept one-unite the divided

The Archangels have lost contact with one another. Their home planet long since desroyed form the inside out by trecherous heretics, the archangels were forced to flee or lose the entire chapter fighting the endless leigions of chaos. Knowing the losses they would inflict upon the heretics if they stayed would be a mere footnote, and how one thousand warriors of the imperium would be wasted, they regretfully left their home. But the forces of Chaos would not let them leave that easily...

Trecherous rituals preformed by the heretics scrambeled the navigational systems of their ships, making their destination uncertain. Making a difficult decision, Chapter Master Michal ordered all ships to jump. Better to be seperated than to have their very bodies forced to fight against the empire they swore to protect...

It's been many decades since that day, and the chapter is still not whole.
The jump forced not only the ships to be seperated, but the squads within them as well. There have been reports of ships exiting a jump completely empty, with Archangel markings and not a soul on board. Much of the chapter perished; including the entire tenth company, placed in the nightmarish hells within the eye of terror itself; others simply merging within a mountain in some forgotten, backwater world.

Michal is determined to rebuild the chapter he feels he himself destroyed, and is slowly gathering the troops long thought dead. The Archangels are slowly becoming whole, and are detemined to take back the planet they lost so many years ago...

Concept two-Dark angel sucessors

The Archangels have decided the quickest way to find the fallen is to spread as far across the galaxy as they can, and be able to respond to any fallen report wherever they may be. This has led to very small companies, companies that fight alongside other Imperium forces in the area a fallen is, then leaving as soon as he is captured.

What do you guys think?

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Default Re: Marine chapter fluff-help with concepts

I would go with the first one, being that astropaths are needed to navigate the warp, extreme cult activity could disrupt them...

And it's a whole lot better than 'my daddy's a dark angel' (especially since successors have no idea who the fallen are)

That's what I thought, thus why much more thought went into the first concept.
