Default Need help for starting a Fluff Chapter.

I am starting a Space Marine army, got sick of paying tons of money for a horde army lol.

I made a Chapter with fluff, but I want it to be different, I want it to stand out from the rest of the trillions of Space Marine Chapters. If anyone has some ideas that would be great.

Also I need help picking Traits for my chapter, heres the fluff I have writing about my chapter so far.

No Mercy, No Respite...

Faith Without Deeds is Worthless...

Only in Death Does Duty End....

If you have any questions about my chapter, I will answer them to the best of my ability.

Thanks guys for the help!

Shovah

Um...different you say? Different...is there anything that hasn't been done already? You could make them a very divergent chapter and say their gene-seed has some serious abnormalities. The Space Wolves have big fangs, the Blood Angels are rather prone to going completely off the rails...perhaps you could call them the Space Monkeys and model them with long arms and tails? They could use their feet to hold their bolters. Much like the Space Wolves' Wolf Guard, the Space Monkey's elites could be called 'Knuckle draggers' or 'Silverbacks' (Termies with an extra wound). The scouts could have a special rule which allows them to hide in jungle terrain like catachans and throw berries: On a D6 roll of 4+, a single enemy non-vehicle unit within 12" is annoyed (pinned).

yeah... but I don't think he wants random special rules!

If you just have a think and see what comes out of your desiesed imagination, you should get something you like.
You could even go into detail in the initiation ceromonies and combat training (I havn't got there yet, but I will do soon!)

I like the idea of doing a chapter that view the primarchs as a panthion. The chaplins of the chapter each follow diffrent primarchs examples... So a Chaplin might follow Sangiunus or Horus and fight accordingly. And have diffrent powers.

Note that a Chaplin of Horus laments his fall in to darkness but lives by his pre-rebellion example...

That is cool. Do you treat them as jump infantry or is it assumed that their power armour makes them too heavy to fly? What about the vehicle crews? Got any pictures?
