Chapter : The Secret Of Steel
Chapter Master : Lord Blackmore
Colour : Boltgun Metal
Symbol : none (they have all black shoulderpads because of the background I've written for em)

The whole Chapter history is based on the Manowar song of the same name, and all of the character names are metal musicians.

This thread made me register.

Just got back into the hobby after years away. As a kid, I played Space Wolves but just founded my own. I'm still inventing the fluff, but here it is.

Name: The Silver Spears, 2nd Company Strike Force Tailteann
Colours: Black with Gunmetal trim
Insignia: Ogham (ancient Irish alphabet, similar to runes) on Shoulder Pad and banners. Very minimal.
Founding: Unknown, possibly during the Age of Apostasy.
Homeworld: Fodhla
Motto:
Glaine ár gcroí
Neart ár ngéag
Agus beart de réir ár mbriathar
(Cleanliness of our hearts, strength of our limbs and commitment to our oath)
It comes from the motto of the Fianna, mythical guardians of pre-Christian Ireland.
Battlecry: Fág a' Bealach (Clear the way! Motto and Battlecry of the 87th and 88th Regiments of Foot in Wellington's Peninsular Army 1807-1814)
Force Commander: Brother-Captain Tailteann Mochua, Master of the Fleet
Notable Characters: Brother-Lieutenant Iriel, Master of Recruits (Scout Sgt. Telion with a new head and paintjob - great character, had to have him)
Brother Sgt. Ainnileas, Terminator Sgt. (Ainnileas is a Celtic name meaning orphan or bastard, he and his Terminator squad "the Bastard's Kin" annihilated an Ork Army almost single-handedly)

No pics, I'm afraid, as I'm no good at interwebular communication technology.

Basically, Ireland has a fantastic reservoir of mythology to draw influence from and I couldn't keep away from the new Sternguard and Land-Raider Redeemer, so it was Marines for me.
I'm currently using them as a Codex Army, but the Space Wolves background might suit them, so I may re-jig things if and when the new SW Codex comes out.

I'm still writing background, so I'd appreciate any comments.

Chapter Name: Black dragons
Chapter Master: Alaric Cyrus (count as Vulkan) Master of the ScaleGuard dragon flight.
Founding chapter: Salamanders
Founding: 21st Cursed founding
Colors: Black, Dark Gray and gunmetal
Insignia: Black Dragon head with Dark Gray back round
Chatper planet: Faldon Kise

NOTE: This is a old Chapter approved Space Marine chapter I have used and redone because of my love for Vulkan and the fact i hate the color green.

Origins:
A relatively new Chapter of the Twenty-third founding, the black dragon's gene-seed is taken from the Salamanders. They share the same gene-seed there are many differences between the two chapters. Unlike the Ultramarines and other such chapters, the chapter prefers to remain in relative obscurity, and see the much-lauded Ultramarines and other chapters like them as vain and arrogant. This humble approach does not lessen their effectiveness in battle. In the early years of M38, they were instrumental in breaking a 55 year long system wide siege of Warsmith Valruk BlackIron's WarBand and and subsequently liberating and helping to rebuild the various worlds the ruthless Warsmith had devastated. It was during the War that now Dragon lord Alaric took on the Warsmith by himself in close combat and felling him with his relic spear and effectively
breaking the spirit of his warband. During the same war, Grand Dragon Seer Dietrich rose to power, incinerating a whole mob of khorne berzerkers and destroying 2 Iron warrior vindicator siege tanks.

Home world:
The black dragons make their home on the world Faldon Kise a world of vast mountain ranges, deep valleys, volcanoes and ash deserts. Populated by a number of large reptillan and carnivous creatures. The planet was colonizied before the hours hersey and the population is tough and hard-working. The planet main exports are Raw materials. Mining is the main industry of the world and all citizens tend to be miners or manufacturers. Faldon Kise is the only planet the black dragons recruit from and when they aren't fighting any wars the Astartes live with the populace of Faldon Kise. The citizens of Faldon Kise are very close to the black dragons (who are seen as protectors and arbiters to the community) and each dragon company is responsible for one of the mighty cities states.

Combat Doctrine:
Being descendants of the Salamanders, the dragons continue to focus on close ranged fire fights with flamers and melta weapons so favored by their ancestors, though their many engagements with foes like the Iron warriors and Eldar have gradually modified their doctrine. While master crafted weapons and armour are still very common, they are supported by fast mounted Astartes called dragon riders. Hand-to-hand combat is frequent and violent, and Drake Captains and Dragon lords prefer the use of powerfists, relic weapons and storm shields over specialized ranged weaponry such as plasma pistols.

Organization
The dragons do not follow the Codex Astartes. Companies rarely fight alongside one another, there are 9 dragon companies each has all self sufficient from one another with there own fortress-monasteries and hatcheries. The black dragons eschew using bikes and land speeders but rather ride atop the dragons from which they take there namesake. These "dragon riders" ride genetically altered and advanced breeds of dragons native to there home world. These dragons serve two roles they are potent psychological weapons and and can stay out in the field twice as long then speeders and bikes because they don't require refueling.

More suspicious are the mysterious individuals known as Dragon Seers and their retinues, who seem to combine the roles of Librarian and Chaplain. Like Librarians, they are psykers and wear psychic hoods as well as wield force weapons. However, they also seem to serve as religious leaders as well, leading other Battle-Brothers in prayers to the Emperor and rallying troops on the battlefield. Often clad in Terminator armor, Dragon Seer's inspire devotion and loyalty in the black dragons. They are often accompanied by a retinue, such as Assault Terminators and dragon acolytes, which specialize in close combat and have not yet mastered their psychic abilties for warfare. This retinue may change from engagement to engagement, such as dragon riders for lightning raids or jump-packers for capturing objectives. The Inquisitors have kept close watch on these activities to make sure they are not heretical, though they have not yet found anything demonic nor alien in their rites and rituals and continue to tolerate them.

It's interesting fluff, tread-head 27.  Regarding the Dragonseers in game, does that mean that you use Librarian, but not Chaplains, so have the Librarians fill the religious role as well in the fluff?  Or did I misinterpret that.

Have you already modeled Space Marine Bikers on dragon models?  If so, please post some pictures in the Konversions thread.

   this is an idea for a custom space marine chapter that i was thinking of playing.
Name: skull dragons
Chapter master: Marcus drake
home planet: Xeron IV
Chapter colors: chaos black armor, fiery orange shoulder pads and back pack, skull white shoulder trim, bleached bone helmet, chainmail silver wrists, salamanders green left knee pad (to denote that they,re a progenitor chapter of the salamanders) golden yellow chest eagle.
founding chapter: salamanders
Chapter fluff: the skull dragons are a 31st founding chapter founded from the salamanders chapter. they gained the name "Skull dragons" from a major defensive of Xeron IV against a tendril of hive fleet Leviathan where all but two companies were annihilated. the chapter did recover its loses after a long process of planetary reconstruction after which Marcus drake has sworn vengeance against the tyranids who had devastated his home planet.

i have started several chapters, which all ended with frustration. im horrible at paintting and designing symbols, ecspecially for shoulder pads, until it dawned on me...

Name: Sigma Marines
Primarch: Jump Master Pheonix Marcellus
Symbol: Capital Sigma letter
Colours: on the models right side is bone white and on the left is cadian green
Founding Chapter: Ultramarines
Founding Time Line: The tyrannic Wars(Hive Fleet Behemoth)
Home Planet: Prandium VI
Favourite Taunt: "Show me what passes as fury amongst your misbegotten kind!"
Background:

 With the Ultramarines fighting the tyranids on their home planet of Macragge, little details of scouting parties tend to be forgoten.

 Sgt. Marcellus along with the rest of his assualt marine squad was finishing their patrol of the small peaceful planet which was made to do nothing but farm. freak snow storms would plague the world for a period of up to 2-6 months in a row and due to the lack of technology to this planet, warp travel never happened besides resource frigates carring agriculture cargo, until one day.

 finishing the patrol was all pheonix wanted to do. although this was his home planet he realized why he had left. fields of crop as far as the eye can see. no excitment.

 So at a young age the boy payed to travel to Macragge where he had jobs just to survive. he would fight to survive in the undercities which was noticed by a certain figure watching him. one day the man saw pheonix faught three other men for a piece of bread. although only in his teens he was fit as his diet could let him.

 the man that would watch him was no other then the Captain of the 8th company of the space marines. 8th company was in charge of holding and training the melee specialists, the assualt marines.

 soon after intiation and rite of passage into the ranks of the ultramarines he was a assualt marine. he now had a purpose in his life, to protect the emperor and his children. and he would do him  and his chapter proud.

 With countless battles facing ork and chaos alike, he never lost the feeling as his power sword slashed and gutted his foes, often shouting threats and taunts. he rose through the ranks until he was offered a postion as a veteran seargent on 1st Company. Many thought Pheonix Marcellus was stupid, for he declined the offer to stay with his original company. declining this offer would have saved his life and his home planet.

 while finishing his patrol on Prandium VI, he noticed a blotch in the sky. it quickly fanned out to cover the sun and cloak the planet in tinted darkness.

 A small Splinter force came forth of the warp ready to ravage Macragge. to the hive minds confusion, the small splinter force was mis-routed to a small green lush fields of agriculture millions call a home. taking adavantage of this was their first priority, to help reproduce lost bio-matter was key to win the battle for Macragge.

 genestealer squads were sent as scouts to the planet to see where the most bio-matter can be accumulated first.one bio-pod landed almost right on pheonix and his squad. the Sigma Chapter book recalls the fierce battle at seeing the xenos atent on prandium. the assualt marines tore through the surprised genestealers, the thought little to no resistance was to happen. that was their first and last mistake.

 a year of fighting turned a small peaceful planet into a battlefield, were warriors rose out of farmers who manned the front lines and were rarely bested in hand-to-hand combat. the only way to win the war was to recruit more men. some were handed whatever they had, picks, axes or if they were lucky, a projectile weapon. Few were more exceptional than others, and were giving the gene-seed of Marcellus. the apothacary knew this was the only way to recruit tough soldiers. soon a ragtag Assualt company was made consisting of warriors whos intiation into the marines was fighting the tyrannid horde.

 after the war was won by attrition by the Unknown Sigma marines, the surviving hive mind ship fled orbit into the warp to replenish its starvation. everything started to go back to normal for the farmers except for one third of their planet was now barren of life.

  Marcellus never returned to the ultramarines for reasons unknown, but instead started to recruiting more and replenish his ranks. although the planet has no fortress, eveyones home was a Sigma's home. people from the entire planet praised the Emporer, thanking him for sending his Angel to guide and to protect their planet.

 To this day, Marcellus and his Sigma Marines fight the chaos and xenos alike to protect the Emporers children.

Does that mean the shoulder insets are also blue, because if they were gold you wouldnt be able to see the rays?

Name: Obsidian Brethren
Parent Chapter: Salamanders
Founding: 13th
Homeworld: Akebulan Secundus; Jungle/grassland Death World
Chapter Master: Mandla Ingwe
Colours: Brown and Black with Gold details(see Avatar)
Symbol: Black Jaguar w/a sun in background
Culture/Traits: The tribal society which the Brethren recruit from is reflected in the chapter's appearance/lifestyle. Ritual scarring, tattoos, and piercings as badges of honour are commonplace. while outwardly appearing savage to some, they are in fact very reserve. Some veteran Marines have developed the ability to alomst instantly intune himself with his environment, to the point of possessing near-precognitive senses.
Combat Doctrine: Hunting tactics. Use of stealth/infiltration to stalk the enemy, launching brutal assaults upon their unsuspecting foes. Will also use heavy weapon support/fast attack units to harrass and lead enemies into elaborate ambushes.

erm...who lets you play with this? because i want to play them with my s6 ap2 bolters :D

tread-head, i like your fluff and the modelling idea. have you tried dumping the legs in boiling water for a bit, which should soften the plastic so you can change the pose slightly? either that or some file work...

The Reliquias Angelus
Homeworld: See Below
Chapter Icon: The Codex Astartes
Chapter Traits: None Yet
Background
The Angels of the Relics are a small chapter of marines dedicated to the acquirement and preservation of symbols holy (such as early, handwritten copies of the Codex Astartes) to the Empire. They also offer their services to other chapters to repair and maintain banners, armor, clothing, and the such. Other than dire circumstances, the Reliquias Angelus only enter battle to procure or recover the lost artifacts they are tasked to care for. The chapter is made up of volunteers from other chapters who are invited to join the Reliquias Angelus based on merit.

In battle, the Reliquias Angelus bring some relics with them, using them as powerful weapons. Some seem to augment the powers of psykers carrying them. Others are brought in much like standards, except that their effects range from increasing the morale of their troops to dealing minor damage to enemy troops within sight.
