Celebrants Chapter Colour Scheme

The Celebrants are a Loyalist Chapter of Space Marines of unknown Founding and origin who were founded sometime during the 36th Millennium. It is not known what Chapter provided their gene-seed.

Chapter HistoryEdit

Almost nothing is known in Imperial records about the Celebrants. Their only mention in Imperial history is that they were ordered to withdraw from the world of Phaethon IV and instead to take up garrison duty on the Ecclesiarchy's Cardinal World of Nedicta Secundus to protect the holy relics of the Adeptus Ministorum found there from the ravages of the Tyranid Hive Fleet Kraken. However, this was all part of a carefully staged ruse by the Alpha Legion Chaos Space Marines, supposedly on the direct orders of their Primarch Alpharius himself (who may actually have been his secret twin brother Omegon), to get two companies of the Crimson Consuls Chapter of Space Marines stationed in place on Phaethon IV so that the Alpha Legion could destroy a portion of that Chapter by unleashing the Ork WAAAGH! Wuzghal upon it. The plan worked and the Crimson Consuls on Phaethon IV and elsewhere in the galaxy were ultimately wiped from the rolls of the Emperor's Astartes through the machinations of the insidious Alpha Legion.

Notable CampaignsEdit

Chapter AppearanceEdit

Chapter ColoursEdit

The Celebrants' Power Armor has a unique colour pattern, with yellow colouring on the lower legs that seamlessly blends into orange for the mid-torso and then red for the upper torso, helmet and arms. The black-coloured squad specialty symbol: Tactical, Assault, Devastator, or Veteran), is indicated on the right shoulder pad. A white-coloured Gothic numeral centred on the squad specialty symbol indicates squad number. The colour of the left knee guard indicates company number in accordance with the Codex -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company) ect.

Chapter BadgeEdit

The Celebrants' Chapter badge is a black five-pointed star sporting black, stylised wings similar to those used by the Blood Angels Space Marine Chapter. This is centred on a field of red.
