    :oops:
    I had in mind to mention sword decorations and a preference for power-swords, but forgot it, thanks for reminding me. They do also have the DA's robes, even if they are saffron (a wink to how Buddhist monks are often depicted).

    Also, like the DA do they dislike abhumans and will not fight alongside them or spend any resources to aid them.

    Will also ad all this ^ to my master text

    Realised that I have not really thought about how to do with the Ravenwing, it feels that Errantors should follow the DA Chapter organisation (when possible, they don't have enougth Terminator armour for the whole 1th Company e.g.) but don't know if the Ravenwing counterpart should be marked out in any way (colour, hussar "wing", or other)

    Thanks :)

    Beside the HH-era Emperor's Children, Knights of Byzantium, and Sons of the Phoenix, have we seen any Chapters that have purple as their main colour / as part of their main colours?

    Got a bit of Gaunt burn out going. Even though I’m loving this series barring 8&10 I’m finding myself just not reading for any length really lately. Like I’m lucky if I can blast 3 or 4 pgs a night the past few weeks.

    So I’m setting Gaunt on the minor daily read priority while I focus on something else for the major daily read. Just to get a bit of recharge.

    We also have the old Index Astartes colour sheme for the pre-Heresy Alpha Legion

    That's not unusual to my understanding when dealing with longer series.

    Started reading Siege of Terra: Saturnine this afternoon - pretty good so far. White Scars are one of my favorite Space Marines.

    So I just made a big order from GW - Ravenwing Accessory Pack; White Scars Bike Squad Upgrade Pack; White Scars Primaris Upgrades & Transfers; Kor'sarro Khan; Legio Astorum Transfer Sheet; Dark Angels Primaris Lieutenant Zakariah; The Sabbat Worlds Crusade (Hardback); Blood Angels Primaris Lieutenant Tolmeron - all in all 1 740 kr / 171,84 € / 205,18 $.

    For most of them I have no plans to use them right now (I need to be better with my paints) but like to have them for the future, if they go they way of some of the other things I was thinking about but is no longer available

    Got myself some old Chaos Space Marines Transfer Sheets
    [​IMG]

    And while I have no plans to paint CSM:s do I like the idea of using the symbols that are not showing Chaos glypeses as Chapter symbols for a DIY Chapter, and was thinking it would be fun to hear what armour colours people think should be used togheter with the symbols for the Word Bearers, Iron Warriors, World Eaters, Thousand Sons, Emperor's Children, Alpha Legion and Night Lords respectively?

    And yes I know the Iron Warriors symbol is already used by the Silver Skulls.

    I don't know if they count since they were abandoned for the Tome Keepers and not developed beyond colour scheme and name, but the Astral Hounds are purple

    There seems to be more purple marines than I first thought but we could have more of them

    A follow up question to the one about purple Marines, in a way: what chapters do we know that have orange as their main colour or as one of their main colours?

    I just saw a dress that made me want to see a force (Wh40k or AoS don't matter) painted in green and gold.

    I had forgotten I had a fanmade spreadsheet with images of many of the established Chapters colours. Based on that we have for orange:
    Celebrants (maybe, their colours are red faded down to yellow and orange is there in the middle)
    Knights of Gryphonne
    Hammers of Dorn (orange is their secondary main colour)
    Covenant of Fire

    And some not jet mentioned for purple:
    Imperial Stars
    Soul Drinkers
    Emperor's Scythes
    Invictors
    Liberators
    Silver Guard

    So a lot more purple, but only four orange Chapters all in all. Orange really need to get some more love.
