Hi , Im new to these forums and Thought i might ask for some help First of all , ive got an idea But im not sure if its Viable im making a chapter that use the Black Templar Rules and are descendants of black Templars , and were out casted by The High marshal For Heresy But they were Falsely acussed But they Stay True to the Black Templar Teachings - Could i use This Btw im using Dark Blue Gold and Silver For Mi Coulor scheme so yea is this alright 2 do ?
Sure, there's no rule against it. I would just make sure that any opponent knows that you're using the Black Templar rules.
Fluffwise I could see it happening. In keeping with the Templar's fluff you might say that they were on a crusade against the enemies of humanity to prove their faith in the emperor and s expunge the stain of dishonor.
yeah, i like what black8 said, maybe the original marshall became corrupted by chaos or somthing, then a commander killed him because he saw what was happening, so now he is the marshall\chapter master, and he works double hard because no one trusts him.
that was all fluff mumbo-jumbo
to answer your question, yes you can make a (sort of) renegade chapter.

You can make up just about any backstory for your marines your heart desires. And then use whatever rules you feel would fit them properly. Even Chaos marines (just gotta let your opponent know what codex they play under)
Please no netspeak etc. We do our best to keep a good profile around here by using proper grammar and spelling etc.
Also welcome to LO and good luck with your army.
I also need a name , my coulors are dark blue , gold and silver the fluff is in mi prevoius post any ideas ?
Thanks Hamish =D
That fluff actually strikes a chord with me, as it is quite similar in many regards to my own chapter, the Iron Dragons, found HERE (The Iron Dragons)
It is quite possible that they are a penitent chapter of marines. However, given the zealous nature of the Templars, and the Imperial ethos in general, if you are accused of being a heretic, you are not cast out. You are killed. Immediately. Now, there may have been a trial, similar to what happened after the Badab Uprising, when several loyalist marines were found guilty of a BREACH of faith, but not found to be heretical. These chapters were ordered to embark on 100 or 1,000 year penitent crusades, I don't recall which.
My chapter also has a small rebellion as a section of it's original number fell to chaos, not once, but twice. Your chapter could easily have had chaos incursion, killed it, the loyalists bring it before their elders and it is discovered that they are innocent of incursion, but the fact that it happened is scary enough that the survivors are sent on another or more dangerous crusade. Since Templars are rumored to have more marines than they are supposed to, these guys could even still BE black templars in name, but have repainted their armor so that they are recogniseable as the penitent crusade.
I will not be furnishing you with a name, as I feel that a name is something that brings you very close to your chapter. It took me 3 years to find a suitable name for my chapter, but that name became the very backbone of their fluff. And vice-verse i guess.
Something including "Templar" or "Crusaders" is always good start if it's your founding chapter. Paired up with a color is always a good easy start. However a strong adjective like "radiant" or "Wrathful" or a type of animal is often part of a chapter name. Perhaps "redemption" or Pentience" or some other word pertaining to their quest for forgiveness and retribution.
