Wow-wee, the Steel Cobras, sounds like the name of a biker gang. Made during the 23rd Founding, these guys were tasked with supporting the Imperium in places where it needed the help. Sadly, the Cobras got a visit from the Ecclesiarchy, and when the leader saw how the Cobras worshipped the Emperor via animal totems, he got his Excommunication on. Sounds familiar, no? From there, the Steel Cobras joined Chaos, and now have probably the most insane hideout outside whatever the Alpha Legion uses the most. Their base of operations is a set of seabunkers on the bottom of an ammonia ocean on the icy world of Tukareo VII. What makes this even funnier is that the Imperium knows they're there, it's just they won't commit the resources, let alone an entire chapter, to go down there and fish them out. No reason why they don't just Exterminatus the planet, though; if your planet is cold enough to have liquid ammonia, you're beyond a Death World. This could, as in it should, mean that these guys are Water Marines. Or, more likely, hazardous environmental operation marines...or hilariously, Piss Marines. Sadly, this is the entirety of their fluff, and they only had a picture of a mini from the 3.5 Chaos Space Marine codex.
