Angry Marineism is the ideology of the Angry Marines, a fan-made chapter of Warhammer 40k space marines developed by the denizens of /tg/. In other words, it’s the lovechild (hatechild?) of Imperiumism and Anonism. It’s also exactly what one would expect from such a union of those ideologies.
As its name implies, Angry Marineism’s defining characteristic is being extremely angry. It is angry for the Emprah, and it is angry towards xenos, heretics, GW, and the like. All the time.
The origins of the chapter are shrouded in mystery. Some speculate that they were one of the two lost legions (such as the speculated Desert Fangs of Rachnous Rageous), or perhaps a successor chapter of them. Some speculate that they were a successor chapter of the Blood Angels of Sanguinius (hence their immense anger), or a successor chapter of the Black Templars (themselves a successor of Rogal Dorn’s Imperial Fists). It’s entirely possible that they simply manifested one day out of humanity’s collective rage. One legend has it that they are angry after prophetically foreseeing the suffering of the Lamenters. Another legend has it they became angry after learning the true nature of the galaxy. Wherever they come from, they typically don’t like discussing it. They barely keep any records of their own history themselves and thus most information comes from secondary sources. Their home planet is either Angrymar or McRage.
The chapter master of the Angry Marines is Temperus Maximus, the angriest of all the Angry Marines (and by extension the angriest person in the Imperium of Man). Dreadnoughts of the Angry Marines are known as Belligerent Engines – entities even more angry than normal Angry Marines. The Angry Marines are notable for being the only Astartes chapter with a commissar – his name is Commissar Fuklaw, and he’s only there because he was too angry to be stationed anywhere else. They occasionally work with the Puritan Inquisitor Badasious.
Some guy on /tg/ decided to paint a space marine model with some angry faces and cuss words at an unknown point in time (likely early in /tg/’s history). From that point on the fa/tg/uys loved it and basically turned Angry Marines into their mascots.
Back when 7th edition was still a thing (from 2014 to 2017), /tg/ put together an Angry Marines codex available here. An 8th edition version is available here and the 9th edition (current) version is available here.
Angry Marineism is, as mentioned before, effectively a hybrid of Imperiumism and Anonism. Angry Marines are a loyalist space marine chapter, and as a result they loves and hates all of the things the Imperium of Man loves and hates. Seeing as Angry Marines are effectively an avatar for /tg/’s RAGE at certain parts of the WH40k canon, they also love and hate the things this particular segment of the fanbase loves and hates.
The personality of Angry Marineism is practically copy-pasted from Imperiumism and mixed with all the SIMMERING RAGE of Anonism. Expect gratuitous use of cuss words and insults. In fact, here’s a guide to said cuss words and insults:
Common Words used by Angry Marines
- Fuck: The most common word in the Angry Marine lexicon, “fuck” can function as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun, preposition, conjunctive, determination, or exclamation. The word is varied in its meanings, but it is mostly used as a simple expression of virtually any emotion. It isn’t uncommon to hear the word “FUCK” (all caps) said on its own as an expression of anger. The word can be drawn out (e.g., “FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK”, “FFFFFFUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKK”, “FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU…”, etc.) for extra effect.
- Fucking: An adjective derived from the word “fuck”. The adjective can be used to describe any person, place, or thing regardless of context, positive or negative.
- Fucker: Noun, used as a general insult.
- Heresy / Heretical / Heretic: A word commonly used in the Imperium, “heresy” (noun) refers to an action committed by a person which goes against the Imperium. “Heretical” is an adjective and “heretic” refers to someone who commits heresy. Angry Marines will shout the word “HERESY” (all caps) when something is so displeasing that other words like “fuck” wouldn’t suffice.
- Extra Heresy: A term coined by Commissar Fuklaw, “Extra Heresy” refers to something so obscenely heretical that simply calling it “heresy” is insufficient.
- Bitch, Dick, Cunt, Pussy, Bastard, Prick, Twat, etc.: All of these are generic nouns used as insults for persons. Can apply to anyone the Angry Marines intend to insult.
- Shit, Crap, Bullshit, etc.: These words can be used to express anger, or as a general insult for inanimate objects.
- Xeno: Noun for an alien. Commonly used as an insult.
- Xenolover or Xenofag: Noun for a person who support aliens or is friends with aliens or think aliens are good. Mostly used as an insult.
- Ultra- (prefix): A prefixed placed in front of an insult to refer to one of the Ultramarines (a Space Marine chapter that is often regarded as overpowered).
- Blueberry: Another term for an Ultramarine, in reference to the blue color they wear.
- Weeaboo or Weeb: A noun used as an insult for a variety of groups, including but not limited to 1) the T'au, 2) anyone who fights like the T'au, such as uses of ranged weapons, 3) a westerner who watches Anime.
- Toasterfucker or Toaster: Noun. A member of the Mechanicus.
- Elf (plural Elves): Noun. Eldar/Aeldari. Frequently used with the prefix “fucking”.
- Mushroom: Noun. An Ork.
- Furry, Furfag: While used in the broader Imperium as a noun for an especially despised group of heretical mutants, Angry Marines will sometimes use these words as generic insults, but only in specific cases.
- That Guy: Noun. A particularly horrible person.
