Just going to have to buy brand new stuff then, aren't you? And make sure you don't label your existing space marines as Warmongers when you ebay them- it's too late for that! GW have spoken.

Eh...screw GW. Get a green marker out, colour in the white bits on that space marine picture in the codex and carry on

It's annoying GW did that but maybe the 3rd company are just a different colour to the rest of the chapter?

There have been several instances mentioned in previous codexes etc of different Chapters having the same name, so there's no reason why your marines can't still be the WarMongers

An Inquisitor has been dispatched to investigate your newly heretical color scheme.

to be fair, as space marines go, the new scheme is pretty cool.

I love it when they have different coloured torsos and legs etc.

Also there are instances of space marine chapters adopting different color schemes during campaigns or just changing over time.

Traditional Howling Griffons color scheme.

troop color scheme.]Alternate Howling Griffons color scheme.

Howling Griffons traditional vehicle color scheme.

HowUltramarines alternate vehicle color scheme.

2nd Alternate vehicle color scheme

Above are several color schemes for Howling Griffons troops and vehicles, some of them current canon, some retconned and some fan based, all of which appropriate ways of painting them. I've even seen blue and white, snow camo Ultramarines in WD and they looked awesome. Their your minis, paint them how you see fit.

PS sorry about the sorry state of the image titles, my BB skills are rusty, but none of the links are broken.

that alternate colour scheme might be because they belong to the 3rd company, who may be on a campaign or changed there colour because of a specific honor or memory, look at the dark angels, 3 different Armour colours in that army alone all with very unique reasons, or blood angel deathcompany marines and the howling griffon example above.

If anything this is a good thing, it means you can expand your force, paint them in a different scheme and make it nice and fluffy.

Just keep your guys as they are, your Warmongers can be the West side Warmongers and the others can be East side Warmongers

Heck, a ton of the founding legions changed their colors after the Horus Heresy. If they did it, surely the Warmonger might have a reason
