See! Everyone said the Rainbow Warriors chapter were stupid! But I don't think they look half bad.
Click on the link. A picture of them is on the bottom.

The DS sucks because to look at two screens, you would need two eyes!!!
The color schemes not half bad, but I still think the name is stupid. And werent they destroyed by the Inquisition cuz their Librarians were too powerful or something like that?

For the love of...! The Rainbow Warriors were NOT destroyed! There is no official fluff whatsoever that states clearly that they have been wiped out. The reason why they're not mentioned any more is because the guy who invented them left GW and the rest of the staff didn't bother to continue their fluff. The only reason why everyone thinks that the Inquisition killed them all is because ONE issue of White Dwarf showed ONE Sister of Battle shooting ONE Rainbow Warrior! Until GW formally declares them nonexistant, they'll still be out there fighting for the Emperor.
And though their name may sound stupid, it's not because their armour is multicoloured like many people think. They're called the Rainbow Warriors because they paint their faces before going into battle to scare their enemies. Like the picture shows, they have a perfectly sober colour scheme.

What a crock.... They took the Death Strike Chapter marine and manipulated him a bit... the winged lightning bolt was never the Chapter Badge of the Rainbow Warriors...
I saw it once but I can't remember exactly what it was... it sure as hell wasn't the same as the Death Strike Chapter though... that's for sure... :glare:
That coupled with the fact that they have a painted miniature of them, and they generally don't display or depict armies that have been annhilated....unless they specifically say "this is from the old such and such"For the love of...!

Church: "Ok, so we're agreed? You first!"
Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."
The helmet stripe is wrong.
Their original stripe looked like this.
If memory serves, I'll have to check my old rogue traitor book to confirm. Also the image of the sister of battle was originally in the rogue traitor book towards the back. The rainbow warrior has "brother vermillion" painted on his armor, and the sister has "sister sin". So technically you could say the rainbow warriors were sent to purge a corrupt sect of the sisters of battle. Who knows...?
Good to see that some smart ass at GW decided to revive the rainbow warrior dream.

If you check here and scroll down a bit, you'll see that the badge for the rainbow warriors IS the winged lightning...

Any chapter incorporatting any kind of tranquil element in their name, in my eyes is unfit to serve the Emperor and should be cleared up before they get in somone elses way...... Rainbows--- makes me think of care bears....... Not Valiant Knights-- now maybe if theyre name was the Spectrum Warriors that would be cool and emperor worthy--
if any one iss partial to the rainbow warriors send me a link to their fluff and ill consider them (maybe)

Well, that image is from the Insignium Astartes book (I'm pretty sure) and is therefore as new as the recoloured marine. GW is pretty "good" at recycling old material and putting a new spin on it. The Black Templars, for example, were first described as a codex chapter, which they clearly aren't anymore.Originally posted by Rogue-Angel@Oct 6 2004, 19:21

And how lazy is it to recolour photos? If you look in the SM Collectors Guide and other places you'll see lots of cool colourschemes, but if you look closer you'll see that there's only four or five different marines that they've photoshopped... How long can it take for a trained painter to paint a single marine? I bet they didn't even save any money.
EDIT: But if you look in THIS topic where there's a scan from the Rouge Trader book you'll see that their symbol was indeed a winged lightningbolt.
