History of the Bloodbane chapter
Alium Destrus is one of the Primarchs who was expunged from all Imperial records along with his legion. During the Horus heresy he and his loyal warriors fought heroically against their treacherous brethren. After the heresy Alium had his Tech-adepts and bio-magi worked night and day trying to find a way to return the Emperor to his pre-heresy glory.

After many decades they found a way to do this, they discovered that a huge psycic outcry could cause the rejuvenation of the God-Emperor and even boost his phycic abilities such that he could maintain the Astronomican single handedly. Such a huge outcry would require billions of people to create, so Alium explained his plan to the Ecclesiarchy. But the recently appointed lords of Terra did not want the Emperor back, they wished to rule in his stead so they declared Alium and his chapter heretical.

The Bloodbane chapter found itself beset on all sides by zealous new second founding chapters, eager to prove themselves in the fires of battle. Unable to defeat such an outnumbering foe the Bloodbanes fled to the group of stars known as the wings of Sanguinis. The chapter was duly expunged from imperial records and the wings of Sanguinis were classified as dangerous and inhabited by the hyper-violent Bharghesi making them an ‘avoid at all costs’ area for starship captains.

Since then the Bloodbane chapter has carved out a small empire for themselves, but they still strive tirelessly towards restoring the Emperor as leader of mankind.

Alium Destrus
Alium Destrus grew up on the planet Cirsus Minoris. Cirsus Minoris was a hunting world. As a boy Alium defended the most hunted creature, the Tree bear, he considered them noble creatures and he would often violently confront hunters to protect them. Once he had been picked up by the great crusade and his true identity shown to him he decided to model his fighting style on the bear. He made himself a pair of mighty claws, and he customised his armour so he could run and jump but still be armoured. He even became known as The Bear of Cirsus.

Alium was one of the most devout Primarchs. However he was not zealous, in battle against Heretics and Traitors he would go into a fearless and painless state which ends only once all enemies are banished from his sight. He also was not afraid of genetic deviancy, if a member of his chapter sported such a deviancy he would talk to them, inspect their character and if he saw nothing unbecoming of the Emperor’s finest he would leave them be.

(some of the rules here have been borrowed from another site, I can't remember who but to them I say Thankyou!)

Ws Bs S T W I A Ld Sv Inv
6 6 5 5 5 6 5 10 2+ 4+
Warp Energy: The Primarchs were infused with latent psychic abilities. Much of their physical prowess was owed to these powers, especially their toughness. Each Primarch has a psychic ward providing him an invulnerable save taken in addition to any normal armour or invulnerable saves, This ward cannot be negated by any weapon.

Chaos Bane: Primarchs were anathema to Chaos entities, and their merest touch would cause daemons of the warp to cower in fear. A Primarch will always wound daemonic entities on a 3+ or better.

Super-human: The Primarchs were to marines as marines are to ordinary humans. They could withstand blows that would decapitate a lesser being, and horrific injuries could not stop them. A Primarch can never be instant-killed, no matter what the circumstance. He is simply too tough.

Vitality: The pure psychic energy channelled through the Primarchs enables them to recover lost strength and heal faster than even a Space Marine. At the start of his own turn an injured Primarch regains one wound on a roll of a 6.

Leader of Men: Any friendly unit with LOS to at least one Primarch can re-roll failed Morale Checks (cumulative with items such as Imperial Guard standards). Space Marines from a Primarch’s Legion can re-roll whether they have LOS or not, and may rally using ‘And they shall know no fear’ even if the enemy is within 6”.

Claws of The Bear: Alium Destrus has a pair of these, each one counts as 3 power swords and a power fist and are master crafted.

Divine fury: When fighting any chaos unit in close combat Alium Destrus is fearless so cannot fail any leadership test or morale check nor can any unit he is in.

Heroes of the chapter
Chapter Master Yenkil Davaes

Master Yenkil Davaes takes the role of chapter master in the place of Alium Destrus. This is because Alium Destrus has ordered himself placed in a stasis field until he is needed once more. Yenkil has been chapter master for 352 years but was master of the first company for 75 years before that and began his space marine training over 1000 years ago. He is a very tactical leader, and takes to the field of battle in a dreadnaught-like set of power armour. In there he has a massive tactical computer that, when combined with his own knowledge of battle, means he can optimise each of his warrior’s performance.

Furiassus, Grand master of sanctity

Furiassus is quite possibly the most devout man alive, he is completely faithful in his task and inspires others to be the same. He also has an interesting philosophy, he believes that what you believe is up to you, that you may practise your faith as long as it does not affect others. This may seem a philosophy that would stop him from waging war, however he believes that worship of anything other than the Emperor is foul and affects him by plighting his view with vile heresy. Therefore he goes to battle in the suit of purification. This is a holy suit of terminator armour he crafted himself. It’s weapons are designed to immolate and therefore cleanse the enemies of the Emperor, dual heavy flamers and firestorm projectors surrounding him with an inferno through which little can pass. Furiassus embodies the pinnacle of devotion and is the Bloodbane chapters greatest warrior.

interesting. i think the background is a good start, it needs to be expanded on a bit though. why havent they been crushed by other chapters and the imperial guard. when their primarch suggested that they kill billions of people what did the other first founding chapters have to say about it?

the primarch is fine. theyre meant to be hard as nails and he is. why would he put himself in stasis though? primarchs are virtually immortal so there isnt really any reason that he would put himself in stasis unnecessarily. also why do his claws count as 3 powerswords and a powerfist? it dont really make much sense. it has no impact on the game. a better idea would be to use them as a pair of master crafted lightning claws & a pair of master crafted powerfists, then you would be able to use then as either.

i like the idea of a dreadnought chapter master but there are a couple of things that need fixing. there is no such thing as a heavy close combat weapon. a powersword is already a close combat weapon. he also shouldnt have a rending powersword. make him S6 basic and then give him a rending drednought CC weapon instread. it makes things a lot simpler from a rules perspective.

i dont like your last character. you say he is the most devout man alive (which is very unlikely) and that he is completely faithful in his task, but then give no description of what he does. what is his purpose in the chapter? the firestorm projectors dont make sense. they mean that he cant be close to any of his own models or they will start taking S5 hits. why does he have FNP? you give no reason for him to have it. and again why is he immune to fire? there is no reason. it seems that you have just made up a character without any thought to why he is the way he is. lack of sufficient background is what make these own projects terrible. you have to stop focusing on how bad-ass you want your characters to be in game and concentrate more on their background.

Thankyou, many good points.

May I make it clear that to restore the Emporor a huge phychic outcry was needed and that billions were needed to produce it, I never said that they needed to die, although I can see how you inferred that (The black fleets and whatnot) Also please bear in mind I wrote this using a 4th ed. rulebook and so may need to revise some rules and profiles (and there used to be a heavy close combat weapon, there used to be!)

I like what you've done with the Chimera, the turret looks great!
I have to say, that, while I'm not a fan of the lasguns coming out of the chimera from a cosmetic point of view, personally, I do like to keep them on there so they can be used during transport, however crap they can tend to be - I'm wondering why you chose to cover them up? Is it fluff reasons? Or aesthetic ones?

fluff reasons mostly, but also aesthetic, this is the command chimera so would need some room inside for maps etc. but also this company is supposed to operate for long periods of time unaided so need spare parts.

My tactics idea is basically start with sentinels and remnants on the board, and maybe veterans depending on the enemy. Next turn bring in the infantry platoons, Then third turn everything else, although I will alter it depending on the situation.

well I like the fluff. Use them as grey knights to ally with your IG.

But your vet's should have 3 meltas or 3 plasma.

Your IG squads have no Spec. or heavy thats kinda the IG doctrine to take those.

May be take auto cannons in all of them.

I think Voxes are point less but hey they may work.

heres an Idea take surveyor in every squad if you want and then the Transport and or the unit may shot at them.

How do you keep the Tanks off the board btw ?

the points level is very large is this for mega games ?

I don't want to take heavy weapons as I like keeping my guard moving (15pts for 6 shots over 2 turns? No thank you!)

If I have points left I might gear up the veterans

I think surveyors are cheap enough to go in every squad, thankyou for the idea.

Yes tanks held in reserve is the plan, until their unit arrives, I think that's legal, better read through the rulebook again though...

EDIT: yep, it is legal as long as they hold the unit they are transporting

It is a high points level but I can cut it down quite quickly by dropping some small units like the vets or remnants.
