I'm thinking of making a codex army of the Genesis chapter. They are an Ultramarines successor chapter and here is their color scheme for those of you that don't know: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/mediawiki...sisChapter.jpg
I'm wondering if they would have an alternate color helmet for sergeants and veterans. I think they would because they're Ultramarine successors, but would their scheme be like a reversed version of the Ultras? (Blue helmets for sergeants?)
I would doubt the helmit would be blue, just because wouldn't look that cool. I think white would be the best bet really. Would fit in with the colour scheme and its used by ultramarines alot.

Well the Ultras use white for vets, so I think Genesis would too. But I'm not sure about sergeants. Maybe I should just leave then red and paint some kind of stripe on the helmets? A blue stripe on the forhead, for example.
Make sure you follow all codex regulations
Sgt has a skull Icon on his helmet
1 member of the unit has Iron Halo icon on his armour and is designated combat squad leader
Each marine should have his company colours on shoulder trims
Unit number and type should be displayed on one shoulder, chapter badge on the other
Veterans (including Sgts) should have white helmet. (you can pick a different colour, but all Vets should then have it)
Banner bearer must have laurel wreath on his armour as proof of his bravery.
I've been doing this with my Doom Eagles, who are a second founding chapter. The main divergence is that the company number is also printed on the left knee pad. Really makes a difference when all the marines are detailed like this
Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
