Crimson Shades Scheme

Crimson Shades Chapter Colour Scheme

The Crimson Shades are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding. Virtually nothing is currently known about this obscure Chapter within official Imperial records. The Librarians of the Crimson Shades, like their counterparts of the Space Wolves and the White Scars Chapters, are one of the noteworthy examples that take exception to the doctrines of the Codex Astartes. Though the role of this Chapter's Librarians is not so different from the traditional role found for Librarians in more orthodox Chapters, it is in the methods they employ that they differ significantly from the majority of the Adeptus Astartes. Exactly what this difference is has not yet been recorded.

Chapter AppearanceEdit

Chapter ColoursEdit

The Crimson Shades primarily wear red coloured Power Armour, which includes the helmet, torso, groin, and legs. The power pack, shoulder pads and arms are white in colour. The open-faced, red-coloured squad specialty symbol: Tactical, Assault, Devastator, or Veteran, is indicated on the right shoulder pad. A red-coloured Roman numeral centred on the squad specialty symbol indicates squad number. The colour of the wings of the Aquila or Imperialis on the chest indicates company number in accordance with the Codex -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company) etc.

Chapter BadgeEdit

The Crimson Shades' Chapter badge is a large, red human skull in the centre of a red-coloured, open-faced roundlet, surrounding by four lightning bolts, on a field of white.
