I ran into some miniatures painted in this color scheme a while back and I always that they looked cool.  Honestly, I find any of the non-European-styled Space Marine themes really interesting.  I'm not sure if these are part of the canon at all (these guys are suppose to be descendant of the Iron Hands), but it would sure be cool if they were.

I'm guessing this is a fan made chapter?

Funny story, these were actually a custom chapter made by Victoria Lamb that were featured in a White Dwarf article a while back. She later went on to found a very popular miniature/bits company that makes tons of accessories for 40k models. They're actually one of my favorite homebrew chapters out there.

By the way, any hopes of making this available as a print? I would love to add it to my 40k print collection.

Hey!  Yeah, I'm actually aware of the history as I did some research looking for as much reference as possible!  I'll make it available as a print as see if it gets past DevArt.

if you like non-european mariens, look up "The Lightning Bearers" (if you haven't already done it, i realize you uploaded this like 2-3 years ago)

Very inspiring! As the Iron Hands -  and actual samouraï - they should have a deep feeling reserve.

Great pic.  I like the addition of the elements from samurai armor to the Space Marine armor.

The flag the marine is holding, it's slogan is what is used in the third starship troopers movie (which was terrible) and the common tagline is. "Would you like to know more"

Oh, LOL!!  I was just going by what was on the miniature that I used as a reference for the pic.

I'll be honest, at first I thought that was a completely french flag and was half expecting the orks to have little ISIS flags...
I need to take a step back from the news...
jubjubjedi's avatar
LOL... yeah, someone else pointed that out.  That would be a cool idea, actually... but it's a slippery slope to politicizing that which we use to escape reality.
