I think it would be good if you put up a separate list of the GW ones - like the endorsed.

And then your group of the made up names. Also there are way to many angels and sons for my liking.

There's an easier way, when you see your completed image for the first time, click the link on the bottom of the image and it will show you your image again without the link on the bottom. Simply right click on it and save as.

If you're using this method and leave the file type as .PNG, the extension will actually be .php which will probably confuse your computer (at least that's what happens on both computers at home and my computer at work).  Either manually add .png to the name of the file or use a different file type.
Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will explain it to you.

I can understand both points especially the overuse of certain words, but partitioning the names would kinda defeat the point of doing the list as the GW ones would have to be part of the 1000, I can tell you now there are more than 2000 fan made chapters and theres no way im doing that list ;)


As to overuse, if we replaced the GW chapters with others you would see even more angels and sons and knight and legions, I have tried to cut that back by being selective with names and only including the better ones(or at least those that actually have some background) but as you see they are popular words and I am only one man.

I got a new one for your list. My Chapter is simply called the 'Omega Chapter'.

The idea came about after i accidentally cut out an Ultramarine 'U' on a decal sheet and thought... hmmmm that would look good upside down... heyprestow the Omega Chapter was born. Genius.

My friend made up his own chapter called Desert Dragons. He used the traits and paints them desert colors (of course!) and is also in the process of writing some fluff to go along with them.

My chapter is called the Deltamarines. It's a very similar paint scheme to the Blood Ravens, but with Shining Gold instead of Bleached Bone on the shoulders. They're descended from the Ultramarines, but take major divergence from the codex. I'll get around to writing the fluff this semester, instead of doing homework  :D.

My marine list is in a holding pattern until I finish putting together my Tau list, but I thought I would toss it out there, see if anyone else had it, since I do plan on getting to it one of these days:

Name: Imperial Cadre
Colors: Dark Green on Light Green, gold highlights/insignia (Never remember the 'offical' color names)
Symbol: Harp and Starship in gold
Homeworld: New Dublin
Fluff: The Cadre started as a personal commando unit of the Emperor way back when he walked among men, and was initiall an imperial guard company.  In recognition of its services during the Horus Heresy, it was officially inducted as a space marine chapter some 20 years after the death of Horus, though it was some time before its personel were all official switched over from Guardsmen to Marines.  Its guard roots can be seen in its tactics, which emphasize large numbers of tactical squads, preferably backed by armor.

Color scheme/name/inscription based on the fiction of David Weber.

My Chapter which i am in the process of building is called 1st
(Unless this name is already taken)

Basically they are half a chapter of pre-heresy loyal terran Dark Angels (inspired by Gav Thorpes Angels of Darkness)  who got thrown through time by a warp storm and turned up near the end of M40 and have found a working arrangement with by of the Inquisition. This is when they renamed themselves 1st and were made an official chapter their friends in the =I=

I have a thread about them if anyone is interested or wants to give me some advice

My space marine chapter are a successor chapter of dark angels.
Name - Angels of Fury
Symbol - A winged Sword, on banners the right wing is always burnt
Scheme -
Standard - Dark Blue with red weapons etc (like DA)
Ravenwing - Pure Black
Deathwing - Pure White (not bone white)
Homeworld - (unknown) (only the Rock has that record and no one can access it short of a supreme grand master)
Fluff - Coming from the Dark Angels the Angels of Fury beleive that to make amends for their previous generations sins they may not wear the colours of the original dark angels and that their symbol must be marred by the burnt wing, they are pious in their fighting agains the mutant, the xenos and the heretic and even more pious when fighting against Daemons.
To make amends for their dishonour they will always fight a serious threat if asked, and have a tendency to stretch their forces, though not without thought they will withdraw troops and retreat if they must "The wise man learns from the deaths of others"
If a fallen appears then they will devote their Ravenwing and their Deathwing to hunting them down.

Well, here you go.  The latest version of my DIY chapter's history.

History of the Galahadain:

Johnathon Rizzenson, Captain of the 4th Company, White Consuls, was sent to Holy Terra as an ambassador for the Chapter; this being done in compliance with the regularly scheduled obeisance ceremony required of most Space Marine chapters. While awaiting his appointed hour, he was perusing the library archives to further his knowledge in matters of military history. He became very interested in some scraps of information that had been copied from very ancient Terran texts. They were short pieces of poetry which made reference to a warrior named Sir Galahad. He does not remember to this day how it was that he managed to access information that was protected by the highest levels of security programming, sigils of Unspeakable Power, but access such information, he did.

Through his research, he discovered only a small additional bit of information on the warrior, Sir Galahad, but more fascinating was the information he accessed about this warrior's god. It seemed that the text which this god had provided to his followers had been copied and stored eons ago en toto. Captain Rizzenson was unaware of how long he had been absorbed in drinking in the words of the text, but suddenly, he was again fully aware of his surroundings. An almost unbearable fear crashed in upon him as he realized the fate that awaited him at the hands of the Inquisition once his indiscretion was uncovered. It was at that time that he made his fateful decision: to forsake the worship and service of the Emperor of all Mankind and to serve the God of Sir Galahad. Rizzenson downloaded a copy of the holy text and, feigning a short return, made his excuses and left the planet. By the time it became apparent that he had failed to keep his appointment, the intervening 33 days had left a cold trail for the Inquisitorial forces to follow.

Rizzenson was uncertain of the path he should take after leaving Holy Terra, but one thing he knew: he would be hunted. Therefore, it was completely confusing to him to find that he could not decide on any path other than a direct return to his Company's forward base. The Fourth Company of the White Consuls had been sent on a search and destroy mission against any splinter groups of Leviathan, the most recent Hive Fleet, and so happened to be the nearest of the White Consul companies to Holy Terra at the time. Coincidentally, this was the reason why Captain Rizzenson had been instructed by his superiors in the Chapter to represent them on this occasion. Upon reuniting with his Company, Rizzenson discovered that they were all present and assembled in anticipation of his return. Expectantly, they awaited his announcement. Though his plan had been to secretly leave the chapter and live out his life in solitude, he found himself declaring his recent conversion in front of the congregated Space Marines and support staff. When the expected assault and quartering of his body did not immediately transpire, he used his Auspex to remotely download the newly discovered Holy Text into the Company's local computer network. He then declared that it was available to all who were interested in reading it and that he would assemble the Company together again in three days' time.

As the days passed, not a soul dared mention the contents of the Text, nor even admit to having read any of it. None-the-less, it was a rare individual who was able to resist the lure of curiosity. At the appointed hour, Rizzenson addressed the assembled Company of Space Marines and their support personnel. He explained in detail the manner in which this information had become available to him. He described the character of the warrior, Sir Galahad, the one described as the holiest of all knights. He declared, again, his rejection of the Emperor as a god, his refusal to further the Emperor's goals, and his conversion of faith to that of the God of Sir Galahad. He explained his determination to leave the Chapter and use his abilities in whatever way he was able to spread the hope that he had received in the knowledge he had gained. He declared his intention to do so throughout the Imperium of Man. Rizzenson then invited any and all who would join him to do so.

As he turned and left the speaking platform, he found that he was followed by nearly three quarters of the Company. It became immediately obvious that transportation in the manner of major vehicles would be required for such a group. It was also apparent that some of those remaining behind did so out of fear, but a small minority were filled with unholy fury at what they had just heard and witnessed. Rizzenson knew then that all had not kept their thoughts to themselves during the past three days - some, like Chaplain Laban, had maintained covert contact with the White Consul leadership and even with the Inquisition. Outnumbered as they were, some two dozen various leaders and Space Marines followed on Laban's heels as he spewed Litanies of Hate while assaulting Rizzenson and those who had joined him.

As battle was joined, Rizzenson found himself at a severe disadvantage trying to fend off attacks from Laban's Crosius Arcanum and Power Sword with his own Thunder Hammer and Plasma Pistol (once he had the opportunity to draw it). Laban's Rosarius offered him incredible protection, but Rizzenson had worn his Iron Halo to the assembly on a vague hunch that doing so would be symbolically appropriate. As the majority of those who followed Chaplain Laban were the Company's Assault Terminators, Codicier's, and Chaplains, the battle was extremely bloody. But, as the weight of numbers whittled down Laban's cohorts, those surviving Space Marines who had chosen to follow Rizzenson stood back to witness the two champions represent their respective deities in the flesh.

Having ducked a slow, powerful back-handed swing of Rizzenson's Thunder Hammer, Laban shot forward in a single step with his Power Sword arrowing straight for Rizzenson's throat. In that instant, he slipped in pooled blood and overshot his target, slicing deeply into his opponent's left shoulder instead. Spinning to his left to lessen the impact of the razor-sharp blade, Rizzenson brought the Thunder Hammer in his right hand down upon the head of his adversary.

Stunned silence and the labored breath of their leader was all that echoed in the Hall of Assemblage for what seemed a short eternity. Dropping the now-ruined Plasma Pistol, Rizzenson claimed the Sword of Laban as his own. He then commanded the survivors to care for the wounded and prepare to disembark the forward base with any equipment those leaving normally were responsible for using in battle. Immediately, the surviving Space Marines and those support personnel who had chosen to trust in Rizzenson and his new/ancient God set about following his orders. Those who had chosen not to follow Rizzenson, but had not participated in the assault led by Laban, had no choice but to simply stand aside and watch them go.

Rizzenson and his remnant Company embarked on an Odessy which eventually led them to a remote star system on the far side of the galaxy with a pair of habitable worlds which they claimed for their own. It was far from Imperial space so they felt safe enough to end their flight. Over the course of the next century, they established themselves securely and began to actively pursue their new mission: to protect mankind from destruction, both physical and spiritual. To that end, they covertly recruit new members from other Space Marine chapters and preach to willing ears the words written in their Holy Text. Calling themselves the Galahadain, in honor of the ancient warrior/knight to whom they are thankful for the knowledge of this God and whom they wish to emulate in word and deed, they spread out across the galaxy in search of people in need of protection and hope.

Led by Chapter Master Rizzenson, Master of Sanctity Moroni the Ambassador, and Epistolary Lehi the Prophet, the 150 or so Space Marines and their four Dreadnaught brothers (Sosthenus, Alma, Gideon, and Helaman) do their best to protect their homeworld from discovery while remaining available to assist mankind in any battle in which their help is needed. Techmarine Coriantumr has been working closely with recently promoted Captain Ulfilas to train the chapter's Veteran Sergeants in the skills of the Apothecary. This is seen as a necessary requirement due to the high rate of attrition their members suffer. Small numbers, combined with command of only a dozen vehicles, including Land Raider Crusader Adama and Vindicator G'Zeus (plus their Thunderhawk Gunship with Drop Pods), prevents them from engaging in massive confrontations with the enemy. Their tendency to fight on against obviously overwhelming odds in defense of a worthy goal is due to a lack of fear of death. While it has inspired many who have witnessed their sacrifice to join their crusade, it has resulted in the death of many old and new members of the chapter. This has prevented the chapter from increasing in size very rapidly. Add to that the fact that there are very few forces in the galaxy that do not call them enemy (or actively seek their extinction, as is the case for all loyal Imperial forces) and practically none that call them ally, their persistence can only be explained by fanatical devotion.

The Inquisition considers this heresy more dangerous even than the taint of Chaos because it is the epitome of a wolf in sheep's clothing in their eyes. That makes its lure the more insidious as entire planetary systems can be lulled into abandoning their devotion to the Emperor for the promises of bliss and happiness the Galahadain's delusional faith offers. Though most Eldar consider the Galahadain to be no threat and so generally ignore them, the Tau have only gone so far as to recently consider an offer of Détente between their forces and those of this Space Marine chapter considered heretical by the Impirium, yet, confusingly to the Tau, acting in a seemingly loyal fashion. The forces of Chaos, Orks, Tyranids, Dark Eldar, and Necrons are attacked on sight by the Galahadain, while those of the Imperium are only fought when necessary for self-defense.

The Galahadain operate using the traits, "Purity Above All" and "Death Before Dishonor". They present themselves in the colors of their patron, Sir Galahad: Argent, a cross gules. That is, their armor is pristine white with a red cross painted onto the left shoulder pad. All equipment is kept in pristine condition when possible. The trim of both shoulder pads is silver for Space Marines, while Sergeants and higher-ranking officers trim their right shoulder pads in gold. The highest-ranking officers (Rizzenson, Moroni, and Lehi) trim both shoulderpads in gold. The double-headed eagle of the Imperium has been replaced with a golden-winged red cross on the chestplate while all skull iconography has been removed from their equipment.

I realise this makes me sound like a whiny little be-atch, but I was wondering if I could have joint credit for the Soul Reavers as well as Daryl? It's just, you know, we both posted them on the same page and all ... just asking.

Thanks. Also, I know we have 1000 now, but has anyone else heard of the Angels of Lore? I'm sure I've heard of them before, please tell me I'm not going mad? I think the colour scheme was mostly white, gold trim, not entirely sure though.

Damn, too slow. But this thread was a bit tl;dr, has anyone pointed out that the "official GW estimate" of the number of chapters is - oh, I can't remember exactly - about 971-1023? So why not keep going? Please add my chapter, the Shadow Guard, which I know aren't exclusively mine, as I've found them on the internet via google, but still- Oh, and I see you already have my DoW ones, ehe.
