Being that they're a new chapter of my own creation, I wanted to portray them as a chapter that has been newly created by the Adeptus Terra. The force organization chart that I've posted shows this. It's basically the same as the one in the Space Marine codex, but I've tailored it to fit my newer army that won't necessarily have all the tradition, heraldry, and cool ancient stuff that the Ultramarines might have.
Knights Bellicose Force Organization
Knights Bellicose Leaders' Wargear
|Squad leader. Check out the different helmet colors.|
|Regular bolter marine|
|Several backpack patterns|
|Every squad will have all three specialist weapons, so I'll|
always have options.
|Auspex. It has no role on the table, but I want|
one per squad for some extra flavor.
|Two bolters per squad will have scopes. Like the auspex,|
it's for added detail in the squad.
|From just this shoulder, we can see that this|
marine is 4th company, 1st tactical squad.
|Hand-painted Knights Bellicose logo|
|Group photo of the whole squad!|
|Every squad has all three specialist weapons, so I have some|
choices (no grav guns in the army, though).
|This is the first squad to use the new plasma gun technique.|
|My two beakies. Now they're more important members of|
the squad. In my army's fluff, there's two beakies per squad
and they're a specialist position.
|This is the first marine I have to not wear|
a helmet. In the future, there should be more
skins to come, so I'll have some racial
diversity in the army.
|My first attempt at laurels. It came out well,|
|A nice shot of the bases. Differing bases will help tell the|
squads apart on the battlefield. Check out the other squads
to see how they're different.
|Squad marking. Almost everyone in the|
Chapter will have one.
This was the original test model that I painted a long time ago when I first thought about making a new chapter. It's kind of an antique for me now because it represents the original idea for the chapter.
As time progresses, I still plan on posting more army lists and some of my background to this page. Keep checking back to see what I've added!
