The Exemplars is a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin, though it is known to have been raised at some time after the Second Founding. Almost nothing else is known about this Chapter in Imperial records.
The Exemplars primarily wear dark blue Power Armour. The shoulder plates are black, with dark blue trim. Sergeants can be identified by a red helmet, and those with a white stripe are identified as Veteran Sergeants. The white-coloured squad specialty symbol -- (Tactical, Assault, Devastator or Veteran) -- is located on the right shoulder plate. A black Roman numeral is centred on the squad specialty symbol, indicating squad number. The colour of the Aquila or Imperialis on the chest plate indicates company number in accordance to the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), etc.
The Exemplars' Chapter badge consists of a white horizontal bar with flared edges, being struck through by a pair of sytlised mirrored lightning bolts on a field of black.
