White Unicorns designs by RedSkittlez-DA White Unicorns designs by RedSkittlez-DA
*This chapter is based on a existing chapter created by GW.

The Founding of the White Unicorns is unrecorded. The White Unicorns are almost entirely absent from Imperial records. The Chapter was first recorded in the works of the Administratum field notary Corwen Quilpin in the 3rd Century of the 40th Millennium. The Chapter was next referenced only a few decades later fighting alongside the Blood Angels. The White Unicorns are noted for bearing all manner of holy relics, and ancient patterns, of arms, armour and vehicles. They appear to have inherited the most revered arms and armour, preserving them, and bearing them down the through the ages against the foes of the Emperor of Mankind.

The White Unicorns are known for their extensive of shield and weapon combat styles from swords to lances. It appears that every ballte brother knows how to combine the defensive capabilities of a shield with the offensive power a weapon gives to produce ; charges repelled, enemy squads crushed under foot, gun emplacement over run, objectives taken and battles won.

Tactical Marines of the White Unicorns chapter use a Shields simular to ancient law enforcement of Terra except these shields have a slot for the marine's bolter to slide into allows the marine to use his shield and fire his Boltgun at the same time.

The White Unicorn chapter are known for being able to field a large amount of the sought after MK 4 Maximus pattern power armour which confuses members of Adaptus Machanicus, as if widley known chapters such as the Blood Angel and Ultramarines cannot supply but a hand full of their warriors with this rare armour, then how can the White Unicorns field so many.

The white Unicorns field two variants of the Mk 4 Power Armour the first is the standard version of the armour featuring almost no visable alterations baring the emblem of the White Unicorns.

The second variant is a modified version of the MK 4 Maximus which is mostly used by Veterens of the chapter to show they have proven themselves in the heat of battle, it feature the well known crest and "horn" on the helmet and the rest of the armour receives other astetic modifications such as triming to the leg guards and other areas.

Only space marines are able to put fear onto the enemy when they hear the word unicorn.

It's A classic, man. Not to mention considering how piss poor Adeptus Mechanicus is as developing new tech, the mk 4 is probably not as outdated as one may think. plus it's so pretty.

isn't the mk4 the most advanced ?
i mean it was created with regained knowledge druing the great crusade but through the horus heresy only a few chapters remain who know how to forge them ...

MK4

mk6

mk6 has renundant sensors and is sthealthier
but mk4 has the best protection capabilities (after term armour only mk3 has better frontal protection as the mk4 but mk4 is best overall)

Well, it's not the best. It is inferior to the Mark VI and the Mark VII, while the Mark VIII blows it out of the water, all in regards to protection. The Mark IV was mainly produced because it was cheaper, not because it was better.

The MK III has the best frontal protection, but has less torso protection than the MK VIII. It's used for frontal assaults.

The MK IV is no longer produced, due to a combination of losing some of the tech as well as due to it being inferior.

Yes but the Ad Mech HAS made improvements on the armor. The newer suits ARE better after all. But I'll grand you the style argument.

The idea of the name unicorn marines, it's kinda gay, not as gay as some other chapters, yet they still look manly as hell.

Do you know the original morphology of the unicorns?
Reply
:iconkeydan:
Keydan Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012
It depends on the myths really. In my culture unicorns are pretty much huge bulls with 1 horn and are kings of all beasts...
But in western Europe, where they gave it the look it has now, they stood for purity, often female... so yeah, virgin females, hence "unicorns are gay".

So essentially, you're saying if you like virgin women, you're gay?

:confused: I think that logic is flawed...
Reply
:iconkeydan:
Keydan Featured By Owner May 14, 2013
"like virgin women"
"...like women..."
"...women..."
"...like..."
...
"you're gay"

I think you should stop smoking what ever you are smoking and take a look at your own logical paters. Also cultural history.
For the last 10 centuries unicorns are a sign of purity and were flaged by the church to be a symbol of virgin mary. If you see a unicorn on a family batter it's not because it's bad-ass bt because it's pure and majestic.
Then there are Slavic unicorns, Indriks Beasts, pretty much giant bulls with horse heads that rule over all animals.

I'm guessing he's using them as the Slavic ones, and yes, I know that unicorns represent purity. But what's wrong with being pure? And just because it's flagged by the church doesn't mean it has to be the main image of unicorns... I'm also inclined to believe that Slavic unicorns and Indrik Beasts have been around for longer than the image the church has put out for them; should they, the older versions or the creatures, not be what unicorns should be viewed as?

The originall myth of the unicorns is that they were man eating beasts, according to the greeks. They hunted down virgins and drained their life force. Alexander the Great managed to caught one. That's what I'm basing this chapter on.

Cool, though most people think of them as the biblical-turned medieval symbols of purity...

If I had the time and cash, I'd build a small White Unicorns army. Would be a cool test of my abilities as a modeller :D

Your fluff for the army is pretty good. I could see a few spelling and grammer fails, but they didn't ruin the piece.

You have dyslexia? I honestly didn't know. But like I said, they're just some mistakes and didn't ruin the background for me.

My GF says to not take offence on the subject, as shes gone through the same. She wasn't even "diagnosed" with Dyslexia until she had almost finished school.

I do apologize however if what I said was in poor taste. I did not mean to offend.

I like how you were able to turn an already existing chapter into your own, however I did not find anything about White Unicorns on Lexicanum, so I'd really like to see where you got the info. Overall, I like the looks and appeal these guys give out and I'd really gives me a craving for more.

Its based of a chapter however it is not 100% of that particular chapter which the White unicorns are designed to be relic keepers. Also you should not base a chapter just by its name and appearance, since some chapters have almost similar names and colour schemes but they have completely different roles and tactics. Just letting you know :)
