Im not sure if this is the correct place to find/ask for this information but im looking for information on how a chapter is broken down. I have a small understanding of how current militarys are structured, but cant seem to find anything solid like a flow chart.
The Info im trying to look for is you have your basic infantry, so called squads, then say 5 squads make up a platoon, and 5 platoons make up an infantry regiment, then 2 infantry regiments, 1 heavy support regiment, 1 elite regiment, make up a division etc. Then so many divisions make up the chapter.
Im thinking of creating my own SM chapter and want to get some fluff sorted for it first and so i know where i can head. I may not have explained it properly and some people might ask themselves "wtf is he talking about" but i can see it in my mind, just cant put it on paper.
Thank for your help!
For an even more detailed look at the structure and insignia of Space Marine chapters, I would suggest you take a look at Insignium Astartes. It is jammed full of info on SM chapters and is well worth the read. The stuff online and in the back of the codex is pretty good, but the above book goes into so much detail you'll love it..
