Default Help me name my Space Marine chapter.

Hi there,


I have a space marine army with a paint scheme that is basically black and then gold on the shoulder pads and trimmings, with some bone coloured areas on the breastplates.

I use Shrike in my army so at first I was going to field it as a spin off chapter, but now I'm not so sure.

But anyhow do you have any ideas for names for this chapter which is rather dark-coloured...

I was thinking "Disciples of ..." or "... Brethren"

Thanks a lot

Can't think of any ...Brethren for a Raven Guard spin off, but maybe something like the Dark Eagles? The Sky Talons? The Imperial Hawks? Diciples of Corax? Corax being the Raven guard primarch.

Onyx is a good word not used that often to describe black (or near black) - so how about the mash of the following


Onyx Breathern / Breathern of Onyx
Onyx Lords / Disciples of Onyx / Onyx Custodians /
Onyx Brotherhood / Brotherhood of Onyx
Onyx Phoenix / Phoenixes of Onyx / Onyx Guardians

Another word that's clearly not used enough is Omni which can be exchanged above =D

Nekheny's Disciples :D If you fancy giving them a bit of an interesting hint of darkness...

Oh, erm don't use the word "Shrike". He's a technically minor RG captain, so wouldn't have a whole chapter named after him. The livery you described sounds similar to the Black Consuls, but I presume you want originality. Possibly Brethren of the Raven/Raptor?

It doesn't have to be Shrike as the character. Believe it or not, it's not just a name but a bird species as well. And if he uses Shrike in his army, as a spinoff chapter, then it's entirely feasible.

Brethren of the Night

Take a look at all the primarchs that stayed loyal.
Dead, missing, or in critical condition.

Now, take a look at the chaos primarches.
One missing primarch, the rest are Daemon Princes.

Chaos, The Better Solution.
