The Senator Chapter

The Senator Chapter is our homebrew chapter of Space Marines inspired by the local Springfield High secondary school. The themes and colors are modeled around this local educational and sports establishment.

The lore of the chapter is based upon an imperial world where the concept of democracy has held sway across the millenia presenting in the form of the members of the Astartes calling Sangamon Primus (Segmentum Ultima) their home occupy the Senate of the planetary legislature with citizens elected to a lower house.

With a chapter motto of, “At Rangda we were reborn” and such battle cries of “Remember Rangda” and “Honor the Eleventh”, the Senator Chapter is steeped in myth and legend, though in official Imperial records the chapter is recorded as a second-founding Ultramarines successor. Regardless of this claim, the chapter has gone to great lengths at protecting their gene seed by dedicating two entire companies to permanent service with the Adeptus Mechanicus in lieu of providing the otherwise-required quotas.

In battle, the chapter known for employing two basic tactics; one of stealth and targeting strikes,and the other of stand-off warfare utilizing heavy armor and artillery. Along with this unique doctrine, the Senators utilize their alliance with the Mechanicus in the form of frequent mechanical enhancements at a level not seen anywhere among astartes short of the Iron Hands themselves. Notably, this use of mechanical enhancements seems to be more an acceptance of practical tools, rather than an admonishment of the flesh as is the case with the Iron Hands.

With 10000 years of history, the Senators have seen their share of conflicts. Particularly noteworthy rivalries exist between the Dark Mechanicum, where the Mechanicus frequently rely upon them as a sort of “special force” in dealing with the foes of the Omnissiah. Additionally, the forces of the Necron have found particular hatred from the chapter since the awakening began. Lastly, the Senators have frequently been called in where traitor Titan Legions or Knight Houses have been deployed and the Imperial forces lack the ability to deploy suitable counterparts.
