I am trying to come by with a chapter of my own and decided to start this thread in order to get ideas flowing and maybe ask your help with suggestions and such.
So far the idea is that the first company of the chapter deploys in mk3 iron armour and, whilst is a veteran company, it only has squads of sternguard, vanguard, company veterans and devastators.
In game, the devastators might have the cherubim to represent their veteran status.
Also, the Vanguard veterans may not use jump packs, as the army is based for space warfare and boarding actions and the mk 3 iron is quite bulky and heavy.
The other companies may wear other marks of armour but mk3 is reserved to the 1st.
No terminators in the army though, as most of the resources would go towards adquiring these plates.
There is a heavy component of scouts, but they are from the 10th company as usual.
Speaking of icons, the squads are marked by battlefield disposition in the right shoulderpad with the squad number on top.
The company number is displayed on the right knee via heraldry (something like what the dark angels and blood angels do). Right shoulderpad in the case of scouts squads.
The colour scheme might be something like this (maybe freehanding the eagle when necessary)
I will modify this as i expand on the idea of the chapter.
Any questions and comments would be nice, as i am completely at a loss when creating chapters.
Thanks for reading.
