Warcry: "On wings of blood and rust I fly"

'...Every creature under the astronomican needs sleep, even Space Marines, tell me no different!  With sleep's denial, mortal or paramortal, comes wandering thoughts and waking dreams-- hallucinations they are called, black visions of the basest and most primal of deep-seated fear, of raw uncertainty.  But Astartes fear nothing - my lords, don't tell me this!  As you wish, no, not physical things as WE fear, no - darkness, heresy's taint, superficial things-- and yes!  We even fear the very angels-- but for what?  For betrayal, for their unreadable action, for their apathetic, emotionless reason and logic...
Know this, still they fear!  And what does an Astartes fear?  What?  I shall tell you.  Betrayal.  The unknown.  To fall without thought into madness.  To be left behind.  To be unremembered.  Do you understand?

'This, my lords, is my point; that these "Sagodjur Fjorlag" are no more than a vision; these "Space Marines" seen and reported numerous times by guardsman and Astartes alike, they are hallucinations, fabricated by decaying and dreamless minds kept awake.  All fear what might become of the Space marines, and that fear is given bodies in our minds in the form of visions.  Give them no thought, no heed should you see them!  Things fouler than traitors can take advantage of your minds in such a state. What you all saw to-day was nothing, it was nothing!  Forget you even thought you saw them.'

To the ignorant mind, and still to thousands of unenlightened scribe-adepts, the late Sagodjur Fjorlag were founded in the cursed 13th founding, where the only other chapters formed during this time were the Death Scythes and the corrupted Crimson slaughterers.  This had been believed since the time the so-called “gryphon mutation” came to the attention of the Inquisition, who had previously ignored this strange chapter within its system so far from the light of the Astronomican.  Only too late was the truth of the Sago Astartes understood, and by the time the machine of the Imperium had begun to turn in their favour, it wasn't enough to save them.

Chapter organisation


The chapter was divided into eight Companies, or Folks, each containing ten flokks, or squads of seven Astartes apiece.  At full fighting strength, including pilots and specialists, this would calculate to about 600 marines at most - already woefully underpowered according to the Codex Astartes.

When deploying in full company strength, the Sago Astartes generally take one of three division formats.
 

Prime cut, which is deploys the Folk in a single, massive body for large-scale assaults; Sub-prime cuts, dividing the Folk into two or three larger masses best suited for siege; lastly Secondary cuts, which is the preferred method in that it breaks down the Folk into individual Flokks, spreading them over the widest space in order to infiltrate and sow terror amongst the enemy.  But the chapter will rarely commit so large a percentage of its fighting force to a single engagement owing to the sluggish recruitment rate.
