Silent Sisterhood was resurrected after 10,000 years of absence, as I understand.

Oh yeah, I forgot about them. And they also got the power armor and bolters. So close enough to untouchable chapter really.

Do I even wanna know how they explain a tech priest living 10000 years and doing all this in secret on mars? Building a new marine army complete with vehicles, ships, etc. Holy deus ex, batman!!!

that 10.000 years bit isn't so hard, we have active astartes living to the age of 4000 (That's a lot of candles on your cake!) and Cawl basically doesn't have enough organic matter on him to die, so...

The thing with the secrets is...yeah They should have done it on some sealed off hidden backwater forgeworld.

We have Bjorn with his 10.000 years as Dreadnought... Not too far from fully cyborg Magos.

The most terrible secret is better to hide in the most prominent place - where no one will look.

Yup! I'll bet if the fabricator General of Mars sais: "Don't go looking in production hangar 18." People tend do that (or they'll end up a servitor ;) )

Even the inquisition tends not to delve to deep into the admech. There's no offical Ordos Omnissiah is there?

Inquisitor: "We wanna know what you cogboy chaps are doing on Mars!"

Fabricator General: " Who do you think you are you blasphemous litte man! And don't call us Cogboys!"

Inquisitor: " We are the holy ordos of the inquisition!"

FG: "You want a civil war? You want a religious shism between the Followers of the Omnissiah and the ecclesiarchy? Want us to stop running purity tests on every marine chapter out there? You want every single enginseer in the imperium to go on strike? Keep pushing like that and that's what you are gonna get!"

Inquisitor:"... Fine. Stupid Coghead unionists!"

FG: "Welp, Mars is the RED planet."

I think it's most like: "You want to know that secret we hide in production hangar 18? I'm sorry, but we have approximately 123.731,7 (and don't ask me about these seven-tenths! I don't want even think about it!) buildings designated "hangar 18" here on Mars, so-o-o... sorry... "

Nah, admech are verrrrry persistant, they would probably start searching each one in turn. I can imagine one techpriest* travelling across mars in a complicated search pattern, goingin into every single building codified as "Hangar 18" even if it ook decades or centuries.

 

* The thechpriest would probably employ allies in his search, but I find it funnier with him doing it all alone.

I'll add that to my menagery of disfunctional 40k possible PCs: a permanently drunk guard sniper, a psyker priest who explains his uncontrolled pehonmena as "a sign of the emperor" a Battle sister of a mysterious order with ties to the Alpha Legion and now an admech obsessed with opening doors on a quest to find "hangar 18".*

 

 

* I wonder if area 51 still exists on 40k Terra. (It's probably Malcador's country cottage or something.)

Or maybe if he had a necron tessaract that he could control and that was big enough to hold massive factotums, stasis vaults, labratoriums, etc. He could have kept all this secret on mars if that's how a necron tessaract works.

 

So you're saying there's a blue police box on Mars no one notices but a lotta stuff has been going into for centuries and now legions of new marines are marching out of it?

Well acording to the hH novels, the Emperor burried a frikkin' C'tan on Mars, so maybe the techpiests are used to that sort of thing. ;)

We're still unsure if it was a full c'tan or just a very large shard given recent lore as far as I know.

Back in 4E it was a full C'tan and it had very obviously influenced the Cult Mechanicus over the millennia.

I don't know if this is "bizarre" but my intro to dw had an inquisitor who was handling our team that was a former marine librarian.

Basically an inquisitor needed a small party including a warrior and a psyker. He was assigned a librarian and the two had remarkably similar views to his own. They worked together for years and fought a great threat. Near the end the inquisitor was mortally wounded and as he lay dying he pressed his rosette into his marine's hand and used his psy power to transfer to the marine a lot of secret inquisitor knowledge.  The librarian completed the mission,  saved several worlds ,  defeated a major chaos plot and then returned to face the inquisition. 

He "knew too much" to go back to his chapter but was too useful and had done to well to discard,  so he was inducted into the inquisition. He became quite an inquisitor and was naturally good at working with kill teams.

I have this idea of a Tech-priest that have been working for the =][= for so long and been so useful, loyal and willing to go against the orders of tech-magos for the good of the imperium that he eventually was declared an inquisitor himself.

 

An interesting question for this thread is what kind of underlings an inqusitor of one of the Ordos Minoris should have since they have a bit different focus then the big three

Probably someone with know how/on the inside of the organisation they are watching. So an inquisitor who monitors the adeptus ministorum would have a a datasavant and lexmechanic for hacking into systhems and databases.*

The ordo assasinorum would probably have assassins from the lesser know clades (Venneum), stuff like that.

 

 

* great now I want a 40K Imperial hackers collective: The Adeptus Anonyma. (They still wear teh masks, but now it's black and white to show respect to the machine god.)

Ok going off on an Adeptus Anonyma tangent, but how does one hack into chaos/xenos datasystems?

Chaos cult:
Anon: "And I'm in. Accessing viewed_file_history: Agh what is this? Slaanesh porn, Nightlords snuff movies, Kharn music videos, Cooking with Nurgle...Why Imperator! Why?"

Chaos Marines:
Anon: "I'm in guys! LuL! Alphanoobs kant kode 4 shi-aaagh scrap code! scrapcode! BFTBG!"

Eldar:
Anon: "Ok I'm on the crystaline matrix, inside the wraithbone core, access- whoa. So You are all just dead eldar and if I want to know something I just ask you- wait no! Stay back! Aaaah!"

Ork:
Anon: "Ugh, What a mess! And I'm not even in. Oh well this should be simple. Firewall? Pha that's so ea-aaaaaaaaaaaaargh! Real fire! The console is on fire! Bloody literal orks!"

Necrons:
Anon: "Man that took ages to crack the code, now to-What's that? Personal message from TrazynTInifinte01? Ok let's double klick and- uh oh!"

Tau:
Anon: "Wow, very good defences, but once you get inside... Beautiful desgin, so bright and clear. But why do they name things after fish? Wow This is a really neat system and- No I'm not a xenos lover! Don't shoo-"

Reformed traitor Astartes. Not a blackshield or anything like that, but a former traitor who realized the error of his ways, broke his allegiance with the Chaos gods and now roams the galaxy as a one-man badass army doing good in random places.


Here:

I haven't had a "reformed" traitor yet. Closest would be Mondus Masticate, the twice betrayed. A chaos sorcerer and former World Eaters librarian who got wisked away by a Lord of Change when Angron ordered all psykers in his legion killed. (Very early in the heresy) Mondus is just plain bitter and hates everybody; The Emperor for betraying them. His Primarch for betraying him. And he knows Tzeentch only had him saved so Khorne couldn't claim the entirety of the World eaters.

I had been playing with a SM Scout stranded on a "wild west" type planet and going around as a lone gunslinger. I came up with that after realising humans have initiative 3 and astartes have a 4.  Meaning it would almost be impossible to "out-draw" an ex space marine and that would make for a nice deputy/sheriff.

Well since we already have two characters from other franchises and the squat is wearing yellow armor with some red symbol on his helm:

I'd pick from: Goldbug, Bumblebee or Sunstreaker.

I guess this is not really a bizarre character idé but I have this idea for a Space Wolf Successor Chapter that is based on the tale that Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rom, was raised by a she-wolf. So then we have a Ultramarine like chapter that to most parts follow the codex but show the physical effects of Russ-geneseed, has a secret Wulfen force and maybe Thunderwolf Cavalry units. If I ever did something bigger with this idé would prorobly begin the article with a quote: “Don’t look at me. We didn’t know anything about this.” - Logan Grimnar to Marneus Augustus Calgar.

On the table I would prorobly use Blood Angel rules with the Death Company representing the Wulfen unit/s.
