Is this a chapter that you are going to start doing, if so what is the colour scheme.

mostly blood red for the armor with a light rust look around the sides to give it a weather worn look about it.

but my orks still get most of the action

My son has named his the Ebony Reapers. Good mix of Jump troops, Scouts, Termies, and heavy vehicles. Preferred enemy: Eldar (one of my other armies)
Black with Purple accents

Mine have been named the Spectral Phantoms. Counter-insurgent specialists with many hard hitting infiltrators backed by a few machines. Preferred enemy: Tyranids (my son's other army)
Blue/Green with Grey accents

I like the name 'Purge Marines' but i dont know if its original. Hmm cant find it on the GW massive list of space marine chapters. Meh. The names from some fluff i wrote once and i had to think up a space marine chapter name.

I went with Storm Guard for my chapter. I made one for a create your own space marine thing a while back. At the time I didn't think that I'd actually ever play them but I placed like 63rd in the Las Vegas GT with the army not great I know but there where roughly a hundred people that did worse.

Some names I have come up with over the years:

Crimson Fury: Assualty, Fast Attack focussed

Brotherhood Of The Wolf: Space Wolves 2nd founding chapter

Ice Talons: Dislike using flamers for obvious reasons, mech army.

Iron Drakes: Artillery and Siege Specialists, Dragon Faced helmets

Gale Riders: Only use Land Speeders and Marines equipped with Jump Packs.


Most are just half cooked ideas that never got past the naming stage but a few have a had a story or 2 written about them.

I always thought it would be fun to simultaneously create a Space Marine and Chaos Marine army, each one representing a chapter pre- and post-fall. I'd prefer a separate name for each version of the chapter, preferrably "Righteous Few" for the loyalists, and "Wretched Many" for the traitors. I'd go with a metallic gold color, and keep it for both the noble and corrupt versions. The idea of Nurgle Marines clad in filthy golden armor that was originally designed to look regal really appeals to me, flavor-wise.

I realize homebrew Chaos Marine chapters are kinda gauche, but I'm just blue-skying here. :)

Your going to love the new Chaos Codex then. DIY chapters are in, the Orginal 9 are being given a nerf stick to the head and booted out the back door to lie in the pile of good fluff along with the 5 Chaos god and Star Child theroy.

Realize, I'll never go through with it. I just think it sounds like fun. Someone I game with has gone so far as to refuse to play against any Chaos chapter I invent...so...I guess I won't be dumbing down the 40K universe with any Chaos creations anytime soon. Hurrah!

I wish you were able to quote my post after I edited to make it sound less redundant! You're just too quick, dangit!

No really Flam, it's got to be worth inventing the pre- and post-fall chapter - it's what brought me to Heresy anyway!

Apart from anything else, there are only a few 'official' chaos chapters - original nine, obviously, then the Red Corsairs, then... well, I'll admit I'm not terribly knowledgeable about such things, but I don't know any more, maybe others do.

That hardly begins to scratch the surface of the insidious effects of chaos knawing away at the Imperium, I reckon...

As an added incentive, there could always be some loyalists left (like the DA Fallen in reverse) who spend their entire time trying to mess up their one-time-brethren... that's my plotline anyway!

I think you should just have fun with your DIY chaos marines and tell your 'friend' he's a big meany. :D

Empowered! :D Maybe if I can ever finish up my Orks, I can pursue a little Marine action. In secret. Under the cover of night, and against all odds.

I think Knights of the Emperor sounds like a good name.
Don't know if that's taken or not.

Ultra Angels has the unfortunate problem of putting two vowels together, which makes it awkward to say out lout.

Soul Blades is a name and a paint scheme i am tossing around for a Dark Angels breakoff. This company will use swords as much as possible for CC and the models will reflect that.
Just a sample coloring:
.... or ....
.... or ....

staying with the greens but using a more silvery green as well. I guess the white headed one and the white headed/shoulder one could be ranking.
