Ascendant Angels? .... looking to do a DA successor / possibly later move over to C:SM


looked for it and didn't see any others that had the same name - just want to make sure - if you read the earlier post on chapter colors, fluff is coming soon after the name.


Thanks

I wasn't able to google anything on Lexicanum.

Bolter and Chainsword's DIY forum had Angels Ascendant here (http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/245354-the-angels-ascendant/), here (http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/202032-angels-ascendant-first-rewrite-formally-swords-of-dawn/), and here (http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/135297-index-traitoris-angels-ascendant/).

So nothing official on it as far as I can tell.

I prefer 'Angels Ascendant' to me... sounds heraldic...

Go for it.

Cheers,

I like the Angels Ascendant better too, but I think the best is probably the 'Ultraviolets'. It'd be fluffy. Also paint them ultraviolets.

So white, with markings that only show up under a blacklight?

Angels Ascendant sounds too close to being a BA chapter successor ..... BA is angels ____________ DA is Angels of _____________, and there is already someone on bolter and chainsword that has a angels ascendant custom chapter with fluff done ..... idk i'll think about swapping it around, I had it that way originally until I looked at the BA stuff.

I don't know It more makes me think of the Andromeda Ascendant than of blood angels sucessors.

A ship which Gene Roddenberry based a show on. It was a large ship that was stuck in the timelessness of a black hole's event horizon while the political entity went down in flames. Kevin Sorbo played the captain and was referred to as being "built like a greek god".

Went for several seasons. Some interesting characters in there.

Well, that white stuff fits in with the rest of the clockwork orange imagery, so yes.

They worded it like that after casting Hercules as Dylan hunt? that's almost blatant lampshading.

I do believe it was quite deliberate. Kevin Sorbo was quite famous for playing that role over numerous seasons and movies, and so they made a little fun of themselves for it.
