Just a little bit of fluff from the old Armageddon website

http://www.armageddon3.com/English/Campaign/Troops/wscars.html

http://www.answers.com/topic/white-scars

There is also some stuff in the Eye Of Terror wind up somewhere, I can't find it on the web, but I'll try and go through some WD's for you. It deals pretty heavily with their Chapter Master. Have you read their Index Astartes Article, the second link appears to have a bit of a dummed down and edited verson of it but I will try and find the full one for you.

Thanx man, I was trying to think of a name for my cpatian. I was thinking a famous samurai or warlord, the only 2 ive come up with are musashi, and nobunaga. Any other ideas appreciated.

Hey man, I can't seem to find the Index Astartes in my WD collection.
Look in White Dwarfs just after the Eye Of Terror campaign ended. In the OZ issue (#286) they had a Index Astartes article on the Chapters roles in the war. It describes one of their actions. Do you have that issue or (with the admins permission) I could reprint it here somehow. That may violate Copyright though.

One suggestion for a name would be Seglei Khan. I glenned it from a short story about them. I think Khan demoted their rank. Other ones (Orginal ones):

Galmei Khan
Olmara Khan
Saegis Khan
Temujin Khan (That ones actually Genghis Khan's birth name but I thought I would include it)
Hailui Khan
Hersai Khan
Jesurma Khan
Losan Khan

Khan can be replaced with:

Del-Khan
Grea-Khan
Kal-Khan


Hope that all helps, if you don't like any of it just tell me to bugger off I won't take offence.

Good luck.

There's a basic Wiki article on them here:
http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/White_Scars

They definitely have a Mongol feel to the names (the current chapter master is even called Temuchin, after Genghis Khan), so I'd carry on with that, rather than go for Japanese names. Although you could do a successor chapter, I suppose; I don't think there are any "Japanese" chapters (although I'm probably wrong), so it'd be a cool and unique style.

I thought this thread was dead. But....due to financial issues, my white scars army will have to wait, I just dont have the money to start a new army at the moment. If I get the money and the DA ravenwing box is disscontinued, it will be a very long time.

Mark my words I WILL have a bike army one day.
