Hey everyone I'm intersted in starting another army,and I'm looking into another space marine chapter,The Mantis Warriors in Particular.I just wanted to know if anyone had any background on them,triats i could use to define them,color schemes.anything at all!

All I know of them as of now is that they were at one time regarded as renegades,So I'm also open to using the chaos codex to represent them(not undivided).

Thanks,Martin

They havent turned to Chaos though...they were renegades during the Badad War but after that they were loyal to the Imperium again.

Indeed. Check out Goto's Dawn of War books for some examples of Mantis Warriors during their Penitent Crusade.

Buh? I've read Dawn of War and the sequel, Ascension. No mention of Mantis Warriors there.
There is a third book with a different character, but I wasn't aware that was out yet...

They're in the Deathwatch books IIRC.

Might be another book, then. To be honest the majority of the BL novels are now meshing together in my head (I've read most of them) since there is very little to distinguish them from each other. It's all generic pulp, with one or two noticeable exceptions.

And, indeed, I did misremember. It was still Goto (so chalk one up to me for that one), but it was Warrior Brood and Warrior Coven that I was thinking about. My bad.

Hmmm. I wonder, is the thing about the Batman style blades on the forearms armour actually mentioned in GW material or is it a piece of fan material repeated so often that it becomes the truth?:rolleyes:

They are listed somewhere on the GW US site, and I can't find it for the life of me.

One of the conversion articles, I think.
