are there any mercinary space marines or reble space marine chapters that arent affiliated with chaos?
don't quote me, but I believe alot of the Space Marine chapters kind of keep to themselves and don't do much with other chapters unless it's in their best interests. Well, except maybe successor chapters. Otherwise, the Legion of the Damned are kind of the only chapter I can think of that act as "mercenaries" but they kind of just show up, you don't pay them. Maybe someone else knows more then me....
As for rebel, the word entitles them to be against the Emperor, making them Chaos Renegades so I don't think you could have a chapter that is rebelling against the Empire of Man and still be recognized as a Astartes Chapter.
Check out Double Edged Painting blog for more information on commissions and work in progress
what about the fallen angels i mean i guess they went to chaos but they hate chaos too so i guess they would keep their old gear maybe i dont know what do you think?
Check into Soul Drinkers and Relictors - just to start you off
You could make your own with fluff that they have been excommunicated for coming at odds with an inquisitor; even if they are not rebelling or falling to CHaos this would put them on their own within the imperium.
The problem there is those that 'come to odds' with the inquisition are often dealt with immidiately as to stop the spread of chaos.
Chaos takes many forms in 40K, not just the 'we worship nurgle' type, and any found disobeying the emperors will is seen as tainted and sorted out.
Your fluff could, however, take take on a few slightly different ideas, such as the chapter being on crusade (for messing up somehow), disappearing in the warp during their crusade and turning up a few thousand years later (time dilation effect of the warp) - only for the inquisition to regard them as unknowns/excommunicate and the chapter are having to prove their worth to the emperor again and in order to do that, they are sent to support several other chapters throughout a sector.
Something along those lines could get you the feel of a chapter alone in the universe, sent to help everyone else but this way, they dont get paid for what they do. You could then also lagitimately claim you had companies on Armageddon and whatever, giving you some other areas to play with in the chapter history.
Are there any specific fluffy ideas you had regarding your chapters history that you really wanted to keep?
