Default New army idea.

As a lot of you guys know I started a Chapter called the Paladins of Holy Steel but I am thinking of a new Chapter called the Dark Hearts. I want them to be a cursed founding Chapter and have a very Adeptus Mechanicus theme about them. But I need your help with some fluff and conversion ideas. So can you guys help me?

Hey,

Sounds interesting. What kind of fluff / conversions do you already have in mind?

You could get some Cursed Founding fluff ideas from http://uk.games-workshop.com/spacemarines/cursed/1/. And if you want to go for an Adeptus Mechanicus feel, then you will probably want the Scions of Mars chapter trait (if you are going to be using Codex: Marines) which allows you to take Techmarines as HQ. For conversions, you may want to add bionics or other simple enhancements to each model to make them look more machine. You could even give them the Uphold the Honour of the Emperor trait advantage (6+ invulnerable saves) to represent the extensive bionic implants.

Thoughts?

Also, you can use the adeptus shoulder pads that come w/ vehicle upgrade sprues.

well here's one of my conversions http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=27029.0 and for fluff i got so far is that the chapter and all records of it has disappeared during a campain around the eye of terror. but there have been reports of the dark hearts fleet coming out off the warp and succoring ancient technology on in the system and then disappearing back into the warp. it is unknown why and for what the dark hearts want this technology.

Ogres eh? I like it. No mere feeble mechanical slave for this man...only huge, monsterously powerful beast-men will do. Perhaps Ogryn bodies? But then I suppose you've got all those bullets attached to them and stuff like that.
