I suppose, but that would defeat the purpose woudn't it? Thought the point was to have all the armies there on parade... not just phoned in so-to-speak.

I miss some of the original Ice Angels actually... much as it is fun to read the antics of all the GMS marines.

I want to see whats happening back in space. Aren't there groups of GMS marines, or am I mistaken?

The GMS guys are spread throughout the Ice Angels. Which guy is your favorite Lucifer?

Any one else want to throw in on this one?

Inigo is the hammer guy. Pyrox is totally a bamf. He turned out nice.

For my choices I think I would have to go with Desai and Nefas from the GMS, and Bel Uri from the Ice Angels.

I also like Deasi and Nefas. I also like the chaplains in your story. I don't recall the character's name and that he doesn't come up very much, but whenever he does Ireally like the way he talks. Def the scene where he explains about the black rage to my GMS model.

Cyaxeres is the chaplain. I spent a lot of time on that scene, I'm glad you like it. I felt that the definition of the ice angels view on the black rage was very important to help define the chapter. It certainly helps describe many other blood angel chapters.

Indianapolis

Brother Jaska slowly walked around the Ice Angel position, his ancient green eyes observing a tactical squad, Unit Rah-Apsu holding their position. The hull of the ork vessel was layers and layers of armor plating, but the surface looked more akin to a junk yard with pipes, damaged armor, and random bolted down machines. After the train had connected the two vessels several mobs had assaulted their position but the hull was now occupied only by the marines and corpses, even in space the battle was quiet, the battle was now raging only within. A shadow passed over his position which made Jaska look over his shoulder, another car of the train was docking, bringing the train up to five cars all together.

“I didn’t know chapters still used boarding trains until earlier today.” a voice said with a clear tone of disgust.

Jaska didn’t have to look to know who it was that was speaking, only one marine could sound that condescending. Jaska closed his eyes and took a deep breathe of the cool air his suit was providing. A red armored marine stood a short distance away but because of the vox he sounded as if he was within arms reach.

“Torpedoes are what are typically used and recommended.” Brother Kvothe said. “Fast, brutal, but more importantly they do not risk the larger space bound vessel.”

Memories of boarding missions and tactical plans crossed his mind at the mention of boarding torpedoes. “but they aren’t nearly as armored,” Jaska whispered as one particular nightmare was brought back to life.

Kvothe began to walk towards Jaska, as if being closer would emphasis any point he was about to make. As if his chapters honor was on the line Kvothe spout out research and debates on why torpedoes should be used instead of the boarding trains but Jaska didn’t hear a single word of it.

Brother Jaska continued to think about other things until the continuous droning of Kvothe stopped, the silence creeping into his helm like a cool night’s breeze. He slowly turned his head towards Kvothe, oblivious to what he had last said, “Do you know why the Ice Angels use boarding trains?”

Kvothe tilted his head slightly at the question, his dark blue helm reflecting some of the star light. “No, but I’m sure you will tell me,” he responded with a sigh.

Jaska looked back at the armored train embedded in the ork hull. He looked up at the five cars stretching out into space like a misplaced tower and then to the motionless form of the Frozen Rage. After a moment of thought he once again regarded the red armored marine next to him, Brother Kvothe was highly decorated with a purple tabard and a plethora of ribbons, terminator honors, and an inquisition badge, his meltagun was magnetized to his side ready to deal death at a moments notice.

“Efficiency, Brother Kvothe,” Jaska responded before looking back towards the Ice Angels and continuing to patrol.

Kvothe began to respond but Jaska quickly cut him off with his calming deep voice, “How many times can you fire the same boarding torpedo?”

“Once.”

“How many torpedos would you have to fire to transport the same number of men as we have today?”

“Well that would depend on the size…..”

“Kvothe…” Jaska quietly said, but his voice wouldn’t penetrate the words coming out of Kvothe’s tireless jaw.

“….. and further more…” Kvothe finally trailed off as Jaska turned his back to once again regard the train.

Without looking back Jaska smiled at the silence, “Are you familiar with boarding train designs?”

“Only those stated in the Codex Astartes, the ones of ancient designs that are deemed unfit for…..”

“Kvothe!” He interrupted while turning around, “Does that look anything like one of the boarding trains you’ve ever seen before?”

The Shadow Sanctus marine stared at the towering transport device and noticed how different it was from any he had ever seen or read about, not only in design but sheer size. The massive transport was covered with armored plates attached with elaborate suspension systems to absorb and deflect explosions and fire, it also had dozens of propulsion systems to steer itself during its travels through space, this wasn’t a simple armored drop pod on a chain like the originals. Kvothe’s gaze soon followed up the massive cable and when he saw the Frozen Rage his enhanced vision regarded the rows of doors that most likely held boarding torpedoes, instead of honoring Jaska with a response he instead began to watch a contingent of Tundra Foxes moving out onto the hull to hold the marine position. Both marines stood in silence as the guardsman began to bring out gun emplacements, finally a message came across their HUDs.


“Ah, change of plans Brother Kvothe we will finish this debate later.” Jaska spoke while drawing his plasma pistol and adjusting a setting, Brother Kvothe nodded his head in agreement before heading over to their new way point.

I like it, the arguement works well here, it gives more to the chapter as well as to the two characters. well done.

Like the interplay between characters. Would be helpful if the differences in the trains, or at least the main ones... were pointed out in the argument for the rest of us to understand.
