It's certainly something worth including in any fluff for the chapter.

I like to remember things my own way... Not necessarily the way they happened.

Thats quite interesting, especially concidering that I was going to go along with that they are a successor chapter to the Thousand Sons. Maily to tie together my Pre and Post Heresy armies but also thier both quite colourful and both are based around an ancient pyramid building civilazation.
If what I made up could be true that would certanily give the SOB reason to dislike them, that is of course if they found out where thier gene-seed came from.
I'll make sure to include lots of liberians in the force and make a better successor chapter to the T Sons than the Blood Ravens lol.

If any one knows of this Sister Vs Rainbow Marine picture and where to find it please let me know.

I didn't know the rainbow warriors scheme looked pretty much the same as the ultramarines lol.

Nice painting though, expect to see a squad of these guys soon

You mean the picture by someone who was reinventing the Chapter as he saw fit? The only GW pic of them does use a lighter blue to highlight but other than that they seem to be pretty much exactly like the GW version.

The picture was found on page 268 and 269 of the origional Rogue trader rulebook.
http://www.fightingtigersofveda.com/ssin.jpg is the picture but it is small and is hard to make out the detail of.

Fortunately i have the old RT book and am nice enough to scan the pic for you. Sorry about the missing strip down the middle i didn't wnat to break the book's spine.

He has Gold rims because he is second company but yes it is a very simillar scheme. I think though the Ultramarines replaced them in the fluff so that might be why, cant have more than one blue space marine running about lol.

And yes i'll set to work finishing more of them and post the pics as and when i do.

Thanks alot there GrimzagGorwazza. Poor old Brother Vermillion I knew him well.

Oh one last thing if any one is interested. In the new SM codex on page 30, the Galatic map, there is a planet named Prism with the Rainbow warrior logo. Unfortunatly it says <<record deleted>> but hay! at least thier still being included in the fluff, well sort off...
