Dark Crusaders Chapter Colour Scheme

The Dark Crusaders is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origins and Founding. Nothing else is currently known about them in Imperial records.

Chapter AppearanceEdit

Chapter ColoursEdit

The Dark Crusaders primarily wear dark olive-drab green Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest as well as the shoulder pauldron inserts are bone. The black squad specialty symbol (Tactical, Assault, Devastator or Veteran) is indicated on the right shoulder pauldron. A white Roman numeral centred on the squad specialty symbol, indicates squad number. The colour of the trim on the shoulder plates indicates company number in accordance with the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), etc.

Chapter BadgeEdit

This Dark Crusaders' Chapter badge is an ebon Cross Crosslet on a field of bone.

Canon ConflictEdit

In older editions, such as Codex: Space Marines (3rd Edition), the Dark Crusaders were depicted as wearing all- black Power Armour with a golden Aquila or Imperialis, with a white skull on the Imperialis. The Chapter icon was a white crosslet, instead of a black one.
