Scythes of the Emperor Chapter Traits

2019 Space Marine Codex previews Successor Chapter Traits

Games Workshop via Warhammer Community just previewed the upcoming Successor Chapter traits to be revealed in the new 2019 Space Marine Codex.

Of particular note, Scythes of the Emperor trait suggestions:

A direct quote of their reasoning:

Alternatively, if you want to go for a more narrative spin, you can base your choice of tactics on your Chapter’s history in the lore (or one you’ve created for them). The Scythes of the Emperor, for example, were nearly annihilated by Hive Fleet Kraken during the Second Tyrannic War and swore vengeance against them. Preferred Enemy (choosing Tyranids as the keyword) would, therefore, be a great option, as would Indomitable for the stoic determination they showed when faced with the numberless hordes of Tyranids.
