Heh, funny this. I keep using my clan name as a source for all of my Mandalorian things. Well, why not? It’s me, pure and simple. Not much that anybody can do about it. For the purposes of Warhammer 40k, Adenn’yciia is my DIY Chapters’ equivalent to Ultramar- a small empire well off from Terra, far enough that other than a single driven (and now long dead) Inquisitor of Ordo Hereticus has confronted them on their defection from the Imperium.

Granted, one would think that this would cripple the chapter, especially considering that they are of Blood Angels’ descent. Ironically, it is quite the opposite. With a lot of the ‘crap’ of the Imperium cut out like a bad tumor, the chapter and the people they keep watch over have well and truly began to be something approaching progressive. With a very healthy number of techmarines before the schism, the An’jiise were well able to continue the education well past the split. Over the course of the 500 years since their split, they have actually founded two burgeoning forge worlds within Adenn’yciia, both of which far, far more pragmatic about technology than the Adeptus Mechanicus. This is leading to much newer armor, vehicles, and other such things, which more traditionally minded chapters would revile.

Because of their new lifestyle, the Black Rage is a rarity, though common enough to still have a Death Company, and the related trappings. The red thirst is more readily succumbed to, though they choose to let loose in combat, so that it is under far more control than usual.

Attached to the parent Chapter are two complete child Chapters, and three forming child chapters. Their empire also has a well organized, trained and outfitted analog to the Imperial Guard- The Adenn’yciian army.

Outside of the fluff, they are more or less identical to your standard BA codex chapter. All of the armies are different, though notably both the DIY!IG and the DIY!SM are going to be scratchbuilt and molded.

It will be interesting to find working analogs to Mephiston and the Sanguinator. Comments, as always, are welcome.

  1. Good point that I had never thought of before.
