Stormwatchers Chapter?

16

I'm not a 40k expert by any means, just a longtime fan. I've neither heard of, nor been able to find any information on this Chapter. Now for the feedback... The inquisition already has a host of Chapters tied to them, not the least of which are the Grey Knights and I would assume by extension the Excorsists, as well as the Black Templar, Adeptus Sororitas and even the Deathwatch should they feel like it. Do they really need yet another secret founding specifically for the issues in the sector? Personally, I'd just as soon see the local SM representative fleshed out through one of the existing chapters that are well known ( even if semi-secret in some cases ) to work alongside the Inquisition.

Hmm. Grey Knight in game or Deathwatch (design several chapter). Yes, I want that in the game as a playable character.

I'm thinking once this game hits full release there will be a codex added for the Stormwatchers. Can always write and complain to GW about it. :P

If Thorne is an example of the reguiar Stormwatchers I want a story option to eradicate them!
Why? The guy speaks in practically nothing but "Thoughts for the day" quotes from the rulebooks. :P

Storm Wardens showed up in the Deathwatch Mobile game. The Watch Commander was one of them.


Best line about them-


'They keep secrets so well that they make the Dark Angels seem friendly and open!'


I bet the Stormwatchers will be better explained as we purge our way through Caligari. I hope so anyway.

Chapters are founded all the time to deal with specific threats or guard specific areas. The Astartes Praeses Chapters were all founded specifically to guard the Eye of Terror, for example. It's perfectly acceptable to think there's one in the Caligari Sector too, and since it's a new Chapter, the writers can get away with saying they work with the Inquisition a lot since it's a troubled sector.


I'm sure we'll learn more about them as the story progresses. Maybe they'll get mentioned in a GW publication at some point. I think the Storm Wardens from the FFG RPGs managed to get a mention once too.

Agreed. The Blood Ravens made their ways into the official lore, I belive there is a Gabriel Angelos model as well. It would be cool to NeoCore achive the same thing with the Stormwatchers as well. 

Still, I would like to see the Grey Knights in action in some way shape, or form.

< grin > a quality washover, that. Personally at this point, I'm almost hoping that this Stormwatcher business is a ruse set out by the ruinous powers and/or a potentially heretical Inquisitor as I prefer GW established lore. Good digging though WitchZer0, very valid =)

Written by GW eh? - Like age of Sigmar! xD 


Don't even get me started on 40k Age of Smurfs......

Looks to his left at the now extinct tomb king army "weeps" WHYHYYY

Excerpt from Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games, Deathwatch Core Rulebook.

ISBN: 978-1-58994-778-8 Product Code: DW01 Print ID: 781JUN10


 The history of the Imperium since the Horus Heresy is not

a continuous story. There have been periods of rebellion

and anarchy, times when the balance of power has suddenly

changed and history has quite literally been rewritten. Many

of the subsequent foundings of Space Marine Chapters

belong to these troubled times, making it almost impossible

to ascertain when some Chapters have been created. It is

believed that of the one thousand or more Chapters thought

to be in existence today, more than half are descended from

the Ultramarines, either directly or through one of the

Primogenitor Chapters of the Second Founding.

It is not known how many new Chapters were created by

the Second Founding. Many records were lost during the Age

of Apostasy, a troubled time that bestrides the history of the

Imperium like an impenetrable veil. In all likelihood, some of

the Chapters created during the Second Founding have since

been destroyed, leaving no records of the deeds. Others have
been lost in more recent times, and their names are now all that
remains of them.

Space Marine was one amazing game though, and Titus could honestly have been from any chapter, and the story would still have been amazing. this new chapter might just be for game purposes, and will not be canon.

I wish the Crusader class had been Deathwatch, myself.


As for the Stormwatchers, it really does depend on how well its done. And who knows, if the game does well, we might see some of the others in the future.

Provided of course that Thorn is telling the truth about who he works for.


*shifty eyes*


Then again, a new chapter would be cool.

I see the point, especially for an "incorruptable" like in the case of the Grey Knights, I s'pose a lot of my thought process just comes from being a lore junkie, that, and there are so many of the successor chapters that I've not seen much of over the years it just strikes me as a way for the game to add depth to something that already exists instead of adding "one-more-chapter.007". I s'pose like most things, it's all in how it's done, and the Stormwatchers could be the next Omnibus if it's done well.

You can't do interesting new stuff with old chapters. Going by the over the top bloodlust of the marine from the Martyr the Stormwatchers might very well be compromised. And that's not something that flies when you call them the Deathwatch or the Grey Knights instead of a new chapter.

It's the reason why Relic went with the Blood Ravens for their huge story focused games instead of the Ultramarines (who only appeared in the generic 40k stories like Space Marine and Winter Assault).
