    DIY Index Astartes

    Interested in making your own Index Astartes articles?

    I’m looking to team-up with people and create either an Index Astartes website or unofficial fluff book.

    I can draw the images. Is there anyone willing to help with the background info?

    I’m thinking about including as many DIY and GW Chapters as possible :w00t:

    Massive apology to those of you from the "Help With Your Chapter Colour Scheme" thread that I left hanging. Things got a lil' complicated for me :wacko:


    Samples of my Index Astartes style drawings:

    Death Wolves Chapter:

    Storm Jackals Chapter:

    Skull Hunters Chapter:

    Eagles of Kai Chapter:

    Index Xenos:

    Let me know if anybody is interested in adding their own "home-made" chapter to the listings.

    I'll certainly help you out with background info. I'm fairly familiar with the writing style and format of the Index Astartes articles and it could be a really fun project. Just PM me with more details.

    I'm intersted. Not sure how much help I could be though. I've been working on some DIY chapter fluff, but its not finished yet, and I'm a bit of a perfectionist. But then again, I would probably want to actually recruit my first marines before making the chapter public knowledge, and that's a long, long way off.

    After pondering for the last 5 minutes, I've come up with this--

    Angels of Fortitude
    Angels of Retribution
    Lunar Angels
    Chameleons
    Iron Fists
    Fist of the Emporer
    Sword of The Emporer


    That's all I came up with tonight, hopefully during class tommorrow I'll think of more.

    My Plan

    Some great response, thanks guys!

    I just want to reiterate what I would like to do.

    My intention is to include all known official Games Workshop chapters and all of the best unofficial “home-made� chapters (Space Marine chapters created by you, the fans).


    Games Workshop Chapters

    First of all I am going to post a list of all of the GW chapters I know of. :book:

    This is where I need help, if you know of any other chapters please add them along with a reference of the source where you found them.


    Home-made Chapters

    If you want to include your own chapter in our listings then you need to send me the following:

    1) A picture or detailed description of your chapter symbol.

    2) Background information about your chapter including,

    Chapter Origins (when, where and why they were founded)

    Information about there base of operations (home world, space fleet, etc)

    Combat Doctrine (the way they fight and why)

    Organisation (the way they are organised e.g. Codex Chapter)

    Beliefs (the personal beliefs or followings of you Marines)

    Gene-Seed (what legion & Primarch they derive from)

    Chapter Motto (Their battle-cry or motto)

    3) A picture of your miniatures or a diagram of their colour scheme.

    Post your chapters here or e-mail them to scallyscanlon@hotmail.co.uk


    Aides and Guides

    Examples of Home-made Chapters:
