Shall we have a poll about what chapters to add to the game?

Discuss the Space Marine fleet. There is only the Emperor, and he is our shield and protector.

not shown before though could be a down side. it's why I suspect it'll be some varient of "the big 4" as those are what everyone knows. go with a chapter like the white consuls and a few of us might go "ooooooooooh" many more will go "........ who?"

Well, I'm looking for something unique, special features.

The Raven Guard has the ability to reconfigure their shields to mask their ships visually and the signature. Also they use jump packs in high numbers and are very good at recon.

White Scars modified their ships to be faster and more manoeuvrable...and to house race tracks for their bikes, seriously. :D

Dark Angels have an affinity for plasma weapons, terminators and recon.

Blood Angels...well, they are a bit faster, a bit more aggressive, a bit more for close combat. Not so special after all. Very good pilots, though and their ships are extremly well build and maintained.

Space Wolves are first and foremost primed for close combat and boarding. They have special ice weaponry since the new codex, their ships are manned by highly skilled seafarers from their homeworld and...their are really big wolves on these vessels. :D

Imperial Fists upgrade their vessels with stronger defences overall and their Marines excell at defensive action. Not much more, though.

Iron Hands have extremly well build ships with lots of major upgrades, their Marines are extremly resilient because of their high degree of augmentation. And they have close ties with the Adeptus Mechanicus.

Salamanders highly favour flame and melta weapons, are a bit stronger then normal Marines and their weapons and vessels are master-crafted beauties.

Ultramarines...well. The good at everything and nothing. :D

Blood Ravens, psyker power FTW! Well, not that much anymore after the purge by Gabrial Angelos, I assume.

Grey Knights, even more psyker power FTW! Immunity to daemonic influence and enemy psykers, lots of terminators and Nemesis Knights for teleport attacks (like Avatar).

Battlefleet Gothic wise additions:

Dark Angels - A Variety of unique escort warships found only in Unforgiven fleets.

Grey Knights - Fastest Strike Cruisers the Imperium has to offer.

yup, grey knights are noted as having the fastest ships. if I was going to design a Grey Knight Favor I'd make it as follows:

+X to speed
and hmm I'd go with something similer to the Inqusition ability.

This is the typical post I love ! We should have the opportunity to pick whatever we want and not only 4....

Dark Angels are supposed to be like good in everything but specially firing

Space wolves are the executors so when they strike, they strike hard different for the adaptability of the Ultramarines.

Grey Knights are not a genuine chapter cause ... which Primarch is the gene father of Grey Knights? ;)

I would LOVE to see pre-excommunication soul drinkers. it would also suit them too seeing as they were a specialised space assault chapter. Plus... Purple and gold space ships!

If not them. hmmmm

Grey knights? - bonuses could be :

Immune to demonic influence - Slaanesh control for example would have either none or a diminished effect on grey knights ships.
Overcharged engines - gives + 25 to base movement speed and increases combustion regen by 20%

Grey knights cruisers are usually staffed with inquisition members - storm troopers etc. yes they mind wipe them regularly but the crews know that this happens and its for their own good. they are usually commanded by grey knights too. So its entirely plausible for Grey knights ships to be present. especially during the gothic war with so many chaos fleets pissing about.

You misunderstood. The whole fleet would have to be mindwiped (Marines) or executed (non high value humans) for being witness of a Grey Knights ship.

you have to understand guys, Hjalfnar is a space wolf and thus takes issue with that. *mumbles about damned space wolves and armageddon* :D

in all seriousness though, this mighta been relevent in the campaign but it's not in the skirmish and Multiplayer modes.

And rightly so, damn the Inquisition and their Grey Knights lapdogs! *mumbles something about Russ' hairy balls showing more backbone then GK*
