    Chapter fluff - Children Of The Void

    Children Of The Void

    Brief story
    before the horus heresy the "Children of the void" were known as the "warp hunters" a legion where majority of their forces where fleet based . during the horus heresy the former warp hunters fought against a detachment of salamanders in orbit above the Warp hunters ( aka Children of the warp ) home world of Kongrav .

    uniform



    The uniform is the colour of rock-crete because the legions home world is mostly and ash filled waste land . The trim and any raised areas are purple to show devotion to the dark gods magicaly power ( excluding khorne )

    Origin
    the children of the void do not have a parent chapter as they still use the same gene-seed as the one before the heresy . before the heresy they were known the warp hunters because of their massive fleet with enough fire power to oblitorate entire solar systems .

    Home world - Kongrav
    Kongrav is a world of half ash wastes with fear some creatures and poisonaus ash and of half rich farm land with prospering settlements and valiant warriors . Kongrav is the only recruiting world of the children of the void and there last life line . the settlers on Kongrav do not know that the "children" have gone to chaos but they think that every other chapters/legions have and are worshiping a false emperor Twisted Evil and that they must be purged of such "heresy" .

    Attack on noctrine
    after the horus heresy the children have despised and wished the wraith of tzeentch on the salamanders because of the surprise attack on their homeworld . as a resulty after the horus heresy the children started to muster their forces for a planetary assult on noctrine , the forces included almost 3 regiments of marines and over 12 million guardsmen ( who still did not know they were surving a legion of chaos ), over 10 battle barges and an uncountable amount of imperial escorts . the aim of the assult was to cause havoc , not to take over but to set the salamaders back a good hundred years . as the joint children and guard forces translated into the system they found a mediocure resistance consisting of 2 battle barges and over 31 strike cruisers waiting for them, the orbital resistants was cruched in mere minutes from the imense fire power of the fleet . as the gurad and space marine forces made planet fall they were met by anti air fire and lighting fighters , the forces went for the settlements first forfilling there goal of destroying majoritiy of the potential salamanders , because the salamanders were taken by surprise the chaos forces encountered little space marine resistance . with the primary goal complete the forces started to make there way to the fortressmonastary with hopes of annihlalating the green armoured filth once and for all . as the children colsed in on the fortress monastery more and more casualties were taken , unitl the first squad broke and ran which led to the fear spreading throughtout the left meaning that the forces on the right flank could be cut down and surrounded . the attack on the fortress monastary had failed with half the force running back to their thunderhawks and landers and the other half surrounded and fighting to the glorious end .


    Karvus chosen of the eternal flame
    at the time of the heresy Karvus was a regiment captain and the legion master was verenor who was a prestigious master of warfare , verenor helped to conquer many a world for the emperor , he did it in glory and the true way the emperor wanted . during the actual time of the heresy Karvus betrayed Verenor on the battlefeild with a power sword to the jugular and a bolt round in the eye ( none of the "loyal" battle brothers saw the "assasination" ) . Karvus assumed command of the warp hunters which were at this point known as the children of the void and he set about to destroy all the loyalist marines . Later on Karvus devoted himself and his legion to the mighty chaos god Tzeentch when him and a large detachment of his legion got ambushed and surrounded by a group of iron hands on a"recruiting mission" on a near-by planet .

    Legion orginisation
    legion is split into 5 regiments
    (each regiment is 2000)
    each regiment is split into 5 battalions
    (each battalion 400)
    Each battalion is split into 4 companies
    ( each company 100)

    Each company is lead by a sorcerer
    Each sorcerer has a retinue of chosen SM or chaos terminators

    Company organisation

    1 Sorcerer
    1-3 chosen marines or terminators
    1-6 chaos marines ( or thousand sons )
    1-2 Chaos raptors
    0-1 bike squad

    0-3 land raider [ May only have 3 of these options ]
    0-3 vindicators
    0-3 predators

    The Kongrav guard
    The Kongrav guard are a legion of imperial guard that during the horus heresy did and still do not know their beloved astartes protectors are followers of chaos , the children of the void have been feeding the Kongrav guard fake stories of how many of the other legions ( E.G. salamanders , ultramarines , imperial fists ) are worshiping a false god ( the emperor ) and how horus fought sanguinus and the emperor to try and save the imperium from utter destruction .
    after the heresy and the assult on noctrine the Kongrav guards numbers stand just above half strength (6,789,359) and the remaining leman russ number under 600 , as for mechanicus forces ( Stolen obviously ) they have 1 reaver titan 3 warhound titans and 3 bane blade variants each a different pattern .
