I already made my own chapter, The Immortal Sons, who are very humble, value sacrifice, and view the Imperium and the Emperor above all else.

Now, I want to make a Chapter who is the exact mirror to them. They are very proud in an extreme state. Their homeoworld is covered with monuments depicting their members and their deeds. Their armor is overly decorated with furs, personal heraldry, sacred texts, etc. Where the Immortal Sons are tactical and prefer long range, this chapter will be mostly assault based and just blitz through everything. This chapter sees themselves as being the best of the Imperium and most deserving of praise and glory (They actually care more about their own selfish glorification rather than the needs of the Imperium)


So, I wanted to see if the awesome community here could give me any ideas for a color scheme and possibly a name? I am thinking their motto should be, "We are Paragon!" Also, The Immortal Sons' colors are black and blue so maybe not those colors.

Colors I am considering are, silver, red, black, gold, maybe a dark purple.


I made my first chapter pretty much on my own (I'm a big boy now!) but just for fun, let's see what ya'll can come up with (i live in the south its okay for me to say that lol)

I would make them dark purple, with silver at the trims. And it might be a good idea to paint their shoulder pads black. You will also want a chapter tht you came from, from what I know raven guard would be a good idea.

well, they look on the verge of heresy, being very similar to the Emperor's Children of 30k...
I'd say crimson and gold, with white helmets. i'd also use lots of green laurels, halo and golden servo-skulls (those in the devastator box) because they want to take on camera every deed and to take pictocaptures of themselves in battle (battle sefie!) to be immortal in memory and for pure hedonism.

Name: The Exhalted Scions
Motto: "Super Omnibus" (above everyone else)
Battlecry: "Emperor see me!" OR "Immortal glory!"
Colours: Crimson, with golden trimmings and metallic parts, white helmets (with green laurels for sargents) COmpany numbers inscibed inside white laurels on shoulder pads. First company with golden halo above head. LOTS of purity seals!

Well if you are Southern gentleman you could paint paint them up in nice light shade of grey:p But as your marines are glory hounds I would suggest a bright shiney silver, add lots of purity seals and iron halos and imperial eagles, and tabarbs.

Possible names, knights of valor
lords of ire
illuminators

I would go with dark purple and silver trim.

Since purple was used by royality in 1500's to show how splendid they were it would make sense.

possible chapter names

Gridelin Talons
Cylamen's Fury

Gotta agree with using purple as the main color, because it is, as said above, a color meant to convey regality and shit.

I personally support gold as a trim because it's gold, everyone who's someone in the Imperium seems to bathe their gear in the stuff.

As far as names go, since they see themselves as the first and greatest among the Emperor's warriors, perhaps "The Immaculate Blades" as the blade was a sign of authority and wealth as well as an effective weapon back in the days of yore, and Immaculate because they see themselves as glorious and near-perfection.
