Overview[edit]

The Eternal Sentinels were born when Chief Librarian WRITEFAG rolled up a Space Marine chapter in using the Space Marine Chapter Creation Tables and decided to make them even unluckier then the Flesh Helms and the Lamenters. The result was this shit. Remember, this is a WIP. Finally done, just need to do the links.

Summary[edit]

The Eternal Sentinels were created using the Space Marine Chapter Creation Tables of the Deathwatch game.. They wear silver and gold power armor,and their symbol is a golden eye in front of a sun cross. They were founded in M40 as a counter to Hive Fleet Chimaera. Their progenitor is unknown, although many suspect it is the Blood Angels, due to the fact that the Sentinels little nubs in their shoulders and stronger than usual chest muscles that may indicate descent from Sanguinius. The gene seed is Altered Stock, as they have Over-sensitive Occulobes, allowing them to see in near blackness like it is fully lighted. They are considered heretics because they are known allies of Eldar Craftworld Yggdrasil. Their homeworld is George XXXV, where the Machina is kept safe, far from those who would do it harm, such as the Tyranids and the forces of Chaos.

Relations[edit]

Allies[edit]

The Eternal Sentinels have the Eldar Craftworld Yggdrasil to count on as allies, as they are also fierce enemies of the Hive Fleet Chimaera. They are particularly allies with the Harlequin elite troop, the Laughing Phantoms. They also depend on the freeblade Imperial Knight House House Excalibur to supply them with Neophytes from the resident people, as they respect the Knights if House Excalibur as gods. The Eternal Sentinels also count on the Order of the Red Gaze to provide them with air and Titan support.

Enemies[edit]

If you think about it, the Eternal Sentinels have several enemies. These include:

-Hive Fleet Chimarea

-Most Space Marine Chapters (Except the Reasonable Marines and the Lamenters)

-The Dark Eldar

-The Orks

-The Necrons

-All 5 Official Battle Sister Orders (Not the Order of the Red Gaze however)

-The Forces of Chaos

-The Inquistion

Troop Info[edit]

Becoming a Sentinel[edit]

The trial to become a Neophyte is not hard, but the road to take the trial is very difficult without the proper help. If not sent by House Excalibur, a wannabe Neophyte will have to locate the crashed flagship of the Eternal Sentinel fleet. Once there, the Neophytes perform the simple task of watching a candle dwindle. In preparation, the Neophytes are not allowed to sleep for 3 days. The ones who stay awake are sent away. It is only those who know they must rest, in order to better watch the candle later, who become Eternal Sentinels.

Chapter Divergences[edit]

The Eternal Sentinels are a Divergent Chapter, and is severely different from other Chapters. For one thing, as they are technically heretics, they have no Techmarines. They also use a Bolter that is modified to fit a scope and a silencer. The Chaplains are given bone supplements that allow the wing like growths on the back of an Eternal Sentinel to go to adulthood, and can be seen swooping around the battlefield.

Important Personnel/Rules[edit]

The current Chapter Master of the Eternal Sentinels, as well as one of the few Contemptor Dreadnoughts of the Sentinels. He, unlike other Dreadnoughts, is actually active and updated in the day to day affairs of the Sentinels. So much, in fact, that in the dedicated Fortress-monastery of the Eternal Sentinels, the hallways were specifically built for his size.
