coloured tag for this unit High Champion Sir Ottendahl Vame (Chapter Master)

Silent and Foreboding as a coming storm. Ottendahl Vame is an ancient Thunder Knight whose history of battle is so great in magnitude and scope that some whisper he strode even into battle on the Fields of Terra to fight for the Emperor against the pressing hordes of Chaos, millennia ago. Impossible as the story may be, it persists amongst the lesser members of the Thunder Knights fleet members and administratum, a tale upheld so that it might ground these souls in zeal when facing down the unending horrors and monstrosities of the universe. Blessed they are not, as Astartes whom shall know no fear.
And this is the extent of Ottendahl Vames nature. Shrouded in mystery to all but his Captains and Consuli. He uses his Legendary status, rightfully earned through an eternity of hard-won battles to take his chapter into war.

coloured tag for this unit Chaplain Draechus Voskael (Chaplain)

On the Thunder Knights home world of Ealokar, in the dense and colossal rainforests, who's fauna stretch as high as Hive World Sky Scrapers, there lives a species of dragon-like beasts known as The Voskael. Hidden in the vast, towering alien rainforests, their bullet-proof hide, body the size of a small tank, rapid healing and tree climbing prowess deadly and noble predator. While they are hunted for glory by the Knights of the Chapter in Times of Celebration, they are mostly well respected and occasionally tamed by the few Thunder Knights with the strength of will to dominate such an imposing and deadly creature.
Inside their Fortress Monastery, the Space Marine Chaplain Draechus keeps several Voskael' as a challenge to those deemed worthy of the ultimate combat. For any Veteran wishing to test his steele in battle, the task is a simple one; Survive for an hour inside the closed Voskael Arena, against 3 Voskael', without any weapons. They will be released sooner if they are incapacitated or manage to take a Voskael tooth as a trophy. For the true Thunder Knight must learn that some creatures, whilst deadly, can be powerful allies, to be tamed and used to maximum effect before their end. When the hour is up, the Knight may choose to slay any of the beasts with a Relic Blade, offered up from the Arenas Central Plinth, though due to their unique take on the Codex Astartes, most choose not to. Instead leaving the Arena with the Honour and Respect of the Chapter and the Lizards that have failed to devour them.
In battle, Chaplain Draechus Voskael takes more than the Lizards names as his own, mimicking their unique tactic of dropping from the tall trees of Ealokars Forests onto unsuspecting foes. The Chaplain rarely passes a chance to Jump-Drop onto his enemies from the access hatch of a mid-flight Thunderhawk Gunship, crushing unprepared skulls beneath his feet in a brutal Deep Strike Assault.

coloured tag for this unit Ser Malick (Dreadnought)

Before being entombed inside his Dreadnought Sarcophagus, Brother Malick was once the Terminator Captain in charge of the Thunder Knights Seventh Company.
In a battle against Eldar Forces the massed opening Volley of fire claimed a mortal wound on Malick, severing his right arm clean through the bicep, leaving him with naught but a powerfist and a burning bloody pain that cried out for vengeance. Thinking swiftly and with due resolve, Malick boarded a nearby Land Raider with an Apothecary and Command Squad that was headed for the front lines. Using the vehicle as a staging platform, Malick went on to fight for an entire day before finally succumbing to his wound and falling in battle. Not before aiding in decimating 3 Eldar Troop Squads, an Autroch and a War-Walker all with only his one good arm.
The short but fierce skirmish was a success for the Thunder Knights, pushing the Eldar back into their Webway Portal and destroying the local gate. Malick was noted for his Inexorable Spirit and placed inside a Dreadnaught Sarcophagus to be forever treasured as a True Knight Champion of the Thunder Knights. Today he strides forward with a Red Dreadnaught arm fitted with a Multi-Melta, allowing him to fully share the biting pain that he suffers with for eternity in service to the Emperor.
