So, I've decided to start a Primaris Space Marine homebrew chapter. Thing is, I have 2 color schemes that have made the cut from the several others in mind. Tell me what you think, from a top-down tabletop appearance perspective, which would look the best.
1. The Void Sentinels Chapter, Iron Hands successor
Dark Purple, Clean White, Copper; This chapter comes from the lineage of Ferrus Manus, and their proclivity for technology is very prevalent. They are based on Rubidax, an iron-rich red moon orbiting a gas giant.The chapter's fortress-monastery is The Vigil which is a vertical keep built into a mountainside. The Vigil is crowned by the chapter's Orrery. The Orrery is a void-shielded chamber with an advanced spherical star chart, where the leadership of the chapter convene to determine where to launch their campaigns against the forces of Chaos and respond to Xenos raids. Given their defensive nature along the Cicatrix Maledictum, the chapter has learned to be pro-active in it's campaigns against the Imperium's enemies.
2. The Crimson Tears Chapter, Blood Angels successor
Cream, Red, Gold & Black; It's not on this example, but there are 1+ red tear-drops on the helmets and rank is determined by the number of them. The chapter seeks to prove itself as worthy inheritors of Sanguinius. Their initiation ritual is a psycho-chemical injection, overseen by an Apothecary (Sanguinary Priest) and a Chaplain, that forces them to experience the Black Rage once in their lives and upon successfully enduring the ritual, they cry tears of blood from ruptured tear ducts. They must endure this again if they choose to accept promotion to Lieutenant, in which case they are given a blood drop reliquary symbolizing their ascension. Their colors are inspired by those worn by the Blood Angels Sanguinary Priests.
So what do you think?
