It's my first PBP, although I have GM'd a few (lol) games before, Dark Heresy,DnD,WoD,nWoD and other systems, the game thats up there at the minute is quite helpful, if you have RoB feel free to use that for Armour mark creation, succesor chapters that are presented in that book are good to go aswell, if someone can link my another Chapter/Succesor that had a decent set of rules I wouldn't be adverse to allowing it. I'd like a good split of roles aswell, we actually have enough to cover all the bases aswell which is cool with everyone.

I would usually roll stats for PnP but I think point build works better for this type of setting, less dice rolling means life = easier? So thats 100 points to spend from base 30 and not spending more than 20 per characteristic. Do you guys have any type of scenario you would like to play in particular? I have The Emporer Protects which I can run if you wish? If not I can sort something else out.

 I'm down with whatever you want to play, and got a character nearly down, once there is a forum will post it up and do the rolls for fate, wounds, history and armour type (either Heresy or Corvus due to chapter) etc.

So going with a Consecrator Devastator with a suit of extraordinary relic armour (as per the consecrator charcrea).

I'm there as Ygnar, so what's the word on custom chapters? I'm thinking a modified Raven Guard from Dark Reign, the Raven Nightmare. If not then I'll go with a Flesh Tearer assault marine

Is there much difference between the Raven Nightmare and the Raven Guard shown there, if not go ahead and use them.

I was thinking about going with an Iron Snakes Apothecary. (The chapter has a ton to spare as they are attached at the squad level and not the company). They have no clear founding line, however they do count Roboute Guilliman as their line host. If the GM would not be opposed, I would use the Ultramarines as the chapter rules set.

 The Raven Nightmare would mostly play the same, though I would take out the Hatred Orks, and the redundant concealment, and silent move. I was planning on making them the "avengers" for the dropsite massacre (it's a secret), so I was hoping to replace them with Hatred (Iron Warriors, Word Bearers, Night Lords, Alpha Legion) respectively. If you think this is too much, then as long as you let me have at least the Iron Warriors I will be good. 

And Swampdowg, there is an Iron Snakes build, javascript:void(0);/*1302973287367*/, it's missing some pieces, but if you go with the Ultramarine founding you can just use those to fill in the blanks.

Hatred(Iron Warriors) works fine with me, and maybe just changing the Silent Move and Concealment to +10 if you don't think thats to game breaking?

I don't know how nerdbound works with uploads, but www.raphitari.com/deathwatch/DeathwatchCharSheetFillable.pdf is a fillable character sheet. If we are are doing a point build for stats, we could fill in what we can with stats and gear, then upload our sheets. Though if we would have keep uploading everytime we spent xp, that thread could get a chaotic. Just an idea, but anyone who is already playing a game there may have a better one.

 The site has a built in dice roller. Or we could use Invis castle, up to Karmadef I guess. And we could just keep a sheet each in the character forum and add in all the updates/exp purchases, with a list underneath the sheet.

Also, got my sheet up there, but not too sure how to have the sheet displayed like other people have been, so I just put it up in an attachment for now.

Due to limited time I must announce that I will not take part in the Emperor's Finest game. :( I must accept that I at present don't have the time for two games and thus this one has to go, frankly enough. I will however try to check out how your adventures fare, and wish you all the best of luck! :)

Sorry to see you drop out mate, as for dice rollers, if the one on their forum works well enough we can use that for simplicitiys sake.

Brother Bellerophon of the Blood Angels reporting for duty. I would be honoured to take part in the Kill-team of your choosing. Esteemed Watch Captain what are your orders? Regrettably there are no other Battle-Brothers that I can recommend for this mission…I come alone.
