OK, thanks Wargy.

Name: the Blue Vipers
Colours:
A standard Tactical Marine:

Fluff piece:
The Blue Vipers are a small chapter partially under the control of a covert section of the Adeptus Mechanicus. They are a second founding chapter of the Iron Hands, but have trained in similar stealth skills to the Raven Guard. They hunt Tyranids in and around the Tau Empire, hiding from all other races, including the Tau themselves.

Edit complete - that any better?

This really isn't the place for a full rundown of your Chapter; one pic and a brief summary is all we're after.

Knights Ascendant:


Fluff:A successor Chapter of the Dark Angels, The Knights Ascendant are a monastic order. Seekers of knowledge, they are often seen battling Thousands Sons for lost and Arcane Devices, only to purify them and place them in holy sanctuaries dedicated to the Emporer. It is said the red under their eye visors is a symbol of Redemption, that only blood will wash away the great stain of dishonor that has stained their father chapter.

What do you think, eh?

Darkwolves

(Tactical marine)

Fluff: A relativley young and an otherwise Codex chapter bar the use of Wolf iconography, they recruit from a feral world in the Lupius system, Lupius 2. Their fortress-monastery is on the nearby world of Lupius 3, which is not a feral world but a developed planet that is able to build most common weapons and vehicles used by the PDF, Imperial Guard, and Darkwolves. Due to having fought mostly Eldar pirates and Ork speed freaks in their early history, leading to an emphasis on mobile warfare, the chapter does not generally use Land Raiders in combat (Reasoning that Eldar technology mades the powerful armour of the land raiders virtually redundant and an unnessicary risk) and the three they still have are almost revered artifacts, used solely by the first company and chapter master. Their other four Land Raiders were either lost in combat or traded to other chapters on the Eastern Fringe to aquire some suits of Terminator and Dreadnought armour.

(Slightly modified from the last fluff I gave on them. I'm not too sure on the whole trading aspect of how they aquired their terminator armour)

Alright, here's mine.

Archangels



Tactical Marine

The Archangels are looking for the scattered remains of their chapter, as such not much about them is known. All that is known is that they are a fleet chapter, searching the stars for their brethren.

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?

Looking good everyone.

I've handed out a number of cookies, to Wargamer for coming up with the idea and keeping it up and to several posters for their contributions... and just cause I think the occasional cookie does everyone good. Keep it up guys but remember to stay on topic, Ive had to remove a few spammy posts.
