Default Knights of The Emperor

Upon creating a Chapter master i decided just to make a full history for the Chapter.



A Knights of the Emperor Marine.



Not much is know about The Knights. It is said they are a Crusader Chapter without a homeworld , but instead a fleet of ships. They were first sighted shortly after the Horus Heresy, when a company of Salamanders had been heavily pinned down by the traitorous forces. They came charging in getting face to face with the enemy, yet at the same time layed down suppressing fire. They bet back the Evil forces but as soon as the fight was over, they were nowhere to be seen. It is said they go from one battle to another helping out other chapter but never give the time to be thanked. Upon recent years knowledge about the chapter has increased. They are not a full chapter. Yet only the equivalent of 3 marine company's somehow they survive under the rightful leadership of Chapter Master Arcavian. It is thought they suffered grievous losses during a defence of the Imperial world , Kantora. The chapter also takes great pride in being servants of the god emperor and the Chapters chaplains take great pride in preaching the emperors name. It is still unknown which gene-seed they have came from as they have no distinctive attributes. Their armour has been coloured for these reasons:

Red: For the blood spilt at the Great Hersey
Gold: The colour of the emperors armour , to honour their master.



Chapter Master Arcavian




A veteran. The stripe on the head is Black not white like other chapters.

Will post some other parts later.

I like your colour scheme. Can you guess why?


^^ My chapter ^^

You've got some good starting points on the background, but there's a lot more that you can do to make your history "full." Have you read Wargamer's guide on designing a chapter? I'm not climbing up his ass by saying this (although he might like that :P) but it is a very, very good resource. It doesn't tell you what to write or what to think, but it gives some really useful pointers in the way of what you should consider when creating your chapter and how to progress the history. I followed it when I made the history for the Angel Fists, as it provides a wonderful skeleton to branch off from.

It might be a nice idea for you to work out where their geneseed came from, because even if "in the real 40k universe" it's unknown, they had to come from somewhere. Ultramarines could be a favourite. Or even, if you want to break the mold, they could be leftovers from one of the Traitor Legions, perhaps even the Luna Wolves?

My only issue is... how does a Chapter that only has three companies (you limited yourself, which is very cool) manage to maintain a "mighty fleet" =P

This isn't the place for me to show off my own fluff, but I'll soon put some up elsewhere and you can see what you think of that. Feel free to blast it ;D

There seems to be a huge connection to Black Templars here. Crusade Fleet!?
