I realized that I failed to throw some input into your search for a new chapter scheme. I have always been a fan of the Novamarines scheme.



Not to mention the proud history of successful martial campaigns. The quartered blue and white is very crisp. With your skills you could do that justice.

First off: I must say your army is truly an inspiration to me and if the site lets me I shall sling my full +rep prowess in your direction. It still amazes me that you have managed to take my least favorite chapter ever (Blood Angels) and made them into something that blows my Space Marines out of the water.

Speaking of space marines...and water...I had an input idea for your next chapter.

This may be a bit biased due to my own opinions, but...Space Sharks!

You have the best of numerous worlds:

1. With Imperial Armour 10 on its way, you're sure to get some Sharky recourses sooner or later with which to draw upon (rules, conversion packs, etc).

2. You can appeal to your convertive side with some little mods here and there that add some flavor to the minis (for example, I added sharktooth necklaces, fins on my commanders, etc).

3. You appeal to your inner geek of yesteryear by remembering the good ol' days of Rogue Trader and the original Badab War supplement.

4. With their murky grey/white/red scheme you can experiment with colors while still remaining in your area of expertise.

4a. Rogue Trader-era Camoflague! You know you want to!

And finally 5: We all know how awesome sharks are. But in SPACE?!?!?!??!?! SHIT GETS REAL!!!!!

EDIT: Some motivation:

Space Sharks in IA10:


Space Shark blurb:


IA10 Space Sharks quote:
"We surrender...by the mercy of the God-Emperor, the war is over...we have surrendered...."
Final Vox-Intercept, Void Colony Sigurd VII

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

i actually agree with the above.. i dont know if space sharks is the right thing

but having your current army based around the pheonix (kinda) and birds.. i think your supplement army should be based around another animal (mythical or not)

not a bird though.. maybe like the Minotaur, Centaur? i love Centaurs.. ha

but a aquatic animal is cooll.. you could do blue schemes to match. .. and sharks are cool.. like maybe you could do Tiger Sharks.. and have a similar scheme to that of the Executioners..

i know you want to do IA10 or something but i htink that your real talent lie in homebrew chapters..

and again with sharks you get to do fins and iconography of sharks and can make your tanks look like aquariums.. and stuff. which is cool.

SHARKS WITH FRIKKIN LASERBEAMS ATTACHED TO THEIR HEADS!!!

there is a minotaur chapter as well, also with a cool paint scheme, and battled the executioners once.

You can never be prepared for the unexpected

Well he could always do a Space Sharks successor then...

Makos? Blacktips? Whitetips? Hammerheads?

Ha ha brilliant, but i think a Nova Marines style colour scheme would be awesome, and if you go with Nova Marines you can use all those skull in star burst/corona/sun type shoulder pads tou get with all those Red Scorpian kits.
I say this because this is what i was thinking of using them for myself.

Surely that's an angry marine tactic?

To throw an idea out of left field - One thing i've been thinking about recently was a firehawks army, obviously before they vanished.

The scheme is demanding and will require a fair bit of freehand, but i know you could pull it off. Plus i think it'd be an interesting army to bring to the table.

Hey, Xenobiotic, AMAZING work! I hope you don't mind, but I featured your work on this army on my blog, Dark Future Games (link found in my signature)! I steered all the links back here, so folks can keep up with it here if they want. Drop in on the blog if you'd like to comment for the readers, Xenobiotic and in any case, here is a healthy dose of rep++

The society which seperates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking does by cowards and its fighting done by fools.
