Right some people may know that im currently building a SM Battle Company, which is a Hybrid of Mark's 5 and 6 armour, ive yet to finalise a lot o fthings, such as chapter colours and background, and some comments/critasism is required.
Although a Codex Chapter the Wolves of Dorn are currently on a Penitant Crusade after withdrawing there heavily mauled forces on the Hive world Leodis, and allowing it to fall into the hands of Renegade Marines, who subsequently Slaughtered over a 20 billon humans. they have a small fleet of 1 BB 2 SC, there forge ship and rest of the fleet have been either destroyed/captured.
The Wolves of Dorn are currently reported to be at a approx 25% operational Strength, with less than 30% of there chapter assests left, they have very few suits of Terminator Armour, there vehicle Armouries are depleted and they now favour quick raids to achieve there aims.
I will be limiting myself to a standard Battle Company to choose from when playing games, although due to the scarsity of Terminator Armour ( within the Wolves of Dorn) i feel that the vets would probably be Sternguard rather than Vangaurd, as the Chapter Master tries to only fight the battles that will result in the fewest casualtys to his Chapter ( i see Stern as being a defensive type sqd, rather than offensive) the chapter also has very few Dreads as most were left on Leodis when the Chapter withdrew ( along with the Vehicles).also they favour Dev sqds due to the lack of armour, does this seem resonable?
Because of this wanting disregard to the Holy Order of Ad Mechs machines, they now have a very strained relationship with the Ad Mech, who are currently refusing to re arm the Chapter. - Is this plausable?
C+C is welcome before i move forward with my ideas and maybe post a short piece on the chapter's history etc.
After withdrawing there forces from Leodis the Wolves of Dorn were left Leaderless and heavily Mauled, there first task was to appoint a new Chapter Master, normal procedure to appoint a new CM could not happen, as normal process would be a ballot by the Company Captains, as all of these were lost either during the Attack on Leodis or the Withdrawl, it was decided that the marines left would ballot, it was almost unanimous that Veteran Brother (name to be decided) would be appointed new CM.
His first order was that he would now be known as the Knights Champion and not Chapter Master, and that the Force would immediatly commence rebuilding the chapter, starting with finding and repairing all the Precious equipment lost to the Renegades on Leodis. (insert Knights Champion name ) had contacted the Ad mech to request Re supply, only to be told that this was not a option, the Ad Mech would not tolerate the failures of the Wolves of Dorn in protecting there Sacred Tech and would have to make do with what Equipment they had left, only when they could demonstrate via a Penitant Crusade that they were prepared to protect there equipment would the Ad Mech commence re supply.
(insert name) took the deicision that every marine would spend a week re newing there faith in Dorn and the Emperor before the Crusade commenced.
After thinking long and hard, ive decided on final numbers of operation Marines, these are going to be from the 1st, 5th, 7th, 9th and 10th Companys, the main force built around the 5th Battle Company.
My aim will be to paint the entire force up...

bit of the background:
When The Wolves of Dorn were contacted by the Ad mech to fullfil ancient oathes to protect the planet of Leodis, the entire chapter was mobilised, intelligance reported that the planet had been subverted by Cultists loyal to the dark Gods. Renegade Marines from half a dozen warbands had decended on the planet and started slaughtering the Citizens.
the CM of the wolves of Dorn immediatly assesmbled much of the Capter, with only the 5th Battle Company and elements from the 1st and reserve companys not ready ( they are currently enroute from adiffrent warzone), the Wolves of Dorn made there plans to attack and recaptur Leodis.
from the moment the Wolves of Dorn made landfall, it was immediatly apparent that it was a trap.....
