Hey hey. Welcome to Heresy. I've replied to your post re: creating a chapter.

I think you should write some background material (or steal some of GW's) and give your army a theme (i.e. Jungle warfare experts, Xeno hunters, etc) - the idea's will come thick and fast after that.

Howdy back there Oodles, i think in the space marines codex it has a page on making up your own chapter. Welcome to Heresy, one of the friendliest places on the internet and one of the most helpful concerning wargaming and other things as well. Any fluff you do make for your chapter you can post up in the Homebrew Fluff section, and people can suggest things that can go well with it and help you form the chapter. See you round, Oodles.

(edit: which i just noticed you have done)

Welcome to Heresy!

All I would say when starting your own chapter is make it something you like. Thats it, thats all!

Cheers,

Hey, Welcome to Heresy! For tips on creating a chapter, I would suggest the 2nd-6th company, as they're the most balanced companies. You could do 1st Company if you want vets, but I suggest the 2-6th company. That's a nice paint scheme you're planning for your Chapter, looking forward to seeing pics! Enjoy your stay!

Welcome to Hersey - Online, Have you decided if your chapter is going to be codex or non-codex yet?

I will of course be Codex. Can't make an army that people won't play against lol. Got the SM codex today and had a quick browse through as i had work soon after but I like the "Purity" factor of the Ultramarines, but also like the H2H style of the Black Templars. I also want to create a back story to make it more authentic. SO MUCH INFORMATION!!! SO LITTLE BRAIN TO STORE IT IN!!!!! lol. Im really keen on scouts with snipers too. BOOM HEADSHOT!!! My main problem is finding a way to relate my paint scheme to who i choose to mimic. I want it to be real/beleivable. Any suggestions?
