I wasn't really sure where to put this, so if it needs to be moved or something, then please do.
Anyways, I've come up with a chapter that my brother and I are working on. I've been the one comming up with all of the fluff for it though. It is supposed to be a successor chapter to the Black Dragons. However, their mutations, have become worse. In addition to the horns and spikes, that the Black Dragons tend to grow, they also may grow dragon-like wings and tails. Like the Soul Drinkers, they have been excommunicated, yet still serve fervently for the imperium.
I've been having trouble naming the chapter though. Every time I think of something new for the chapter (fluff wise) I start to think of other names. If the poll works, I have put in it a few names that I have (hopefully) narrowed it down to. Your input and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
Here are their colors, hopefully this will help.
-Initiate-Black armor, all red shoulder pads, half red/half black helmets, red kneepads(if they have them), and red gauntlets. White eyes. Alot of misc. green things.
-Sergeant- Same as normal Initiates, but usually will have green power weapons.
-Same as normal marines, but helmets will be all red. (I'll probably forget this in the future though, and end up painting them with half colored helms as well.)
-Same as normal marines, but the shoulder pads will be red trimmed with white, instead of all red. Their helmets will also be painted all white. (Again, I'll probably forget these differences eventually.)
-Same as normal marines, but with black helmets. (I'll probably forget this. As a matter of fact, I should probably keep everything in one place, so I don't forget what I have and contradict myself later.)
-Same as normal marines, but will be much more ornate. (I might stand a chance of remembering this one.)
Here is my HQ (so I can call this a painting thread and get a few critiques on it hopefully). Unfortunatly, his arm fell off, but maybe its for the better, because I wanted to replace his bolt pistol with a different weapon. Maybe, a combi-flamer or a combi-melta, because they are a Dragon successor chapter.
(Sorry for the bad quality picture, I was tying to rush, because my camera's battery was dying...) He, still needs some work, he needs a base, deeper coat on his crozius handle, and he needs to be trimmed a little bit. It's late, so I'll post some more pics of what I have so far, later.

Hey! Look at the little.... Oh ****!
I liked the Wild Dragons... I like the way it sounds... Not so much the other names you have thought but the color of the sergeants' power armour certainly goes towards dragons!
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I like the Serpents.. sounds suitably ornate.
As for the fluff, there is no way the Imperium would create a successor chapter from the Black Dragons, couldn't you just say that they are a chapter created in the same Cursed Founding and that they have close ties to the Dragons?
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
I think combining a couple like the Celestial Fangs or Wild Serpents or something... Black Fangs is nice from that selection though.
ah thunderbound, what happened to the other name you had for them? well, if you're changing over, i say storm dragons as when i think of putting dragons with marines, i get this feel of the marines dropping from the sky during major storms in drop pods and then tearing apart their foes with flame and sword.
Thanks for the input so far.

Hmm... for some reason, the suffix "spawn" is jumping to mind.
Or something Wyrms? Wyrm is an olde expressione for dragon, and I don't think there is a chapter out there called ... wyrms.
Fire Wyrms, Death Wyrms, Bone Wyrms, Black Wyrms, Tape Wyrms....
Or maybe even two names - their loyalist name e.g 'The Celestian Serpents' and the name they took after excommunication e.g The Wyrmkin etc
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
