Chapter AppearanceEdit

Chapter ColoursEdit

The Emperor's Shadows' Power Armour colour scheme is loosely based off of that of the Black Templars, with contrasting details in red and turquoise. Many Chapter historical references are subtly incorporated into the Chapter's squad iconography.

Chapter BadgeEdit

The Emperor's Shadows' Chapter badge is stenciled onto a white leather papyrus material -- a black bonsai tree silhouette with a red rising sun behind it, surrounded by Japanese Kanji characters. This leather is strapped over a field of turquoise, secured by small cords.
