Imperial Paladins Chapter Colour Scheme

The Imperial Paladins are a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter of unknown origin and Founding, although it is speculated they are from the Ultramarines lineage. Unfortunately, little else is currently known about them in Imperial records.

Chapter HistoryEdit

Notable CampaignsEdit

  • Suppression of the Macharian Heresy (ca. 400.M41-425.M41) - The Suppression of the Macharian Heresy was a notable Imperial military campaign conducted by the notoriously savage Minotaurs Space Marine Chapter following the death of Lord Commander Solar Macharius in 400.M41. After the death of Macharius, those great demesnes that he had conquered for the Imperium of Man during the Macharian Crusade fell into open civil war and anarchy between his seven Army Group generals throughout the newly-conquered territories. These contested territories splintered into petty star empires, each lorded over by one of Macharius' old generals who had repudiated their oaths of loyalty to the Imperium, opposing each other as well as the authority of the Adeptus Terra, and with Space Marine Chapters now drawing sword upon each other in dispute and anger, the High Lords of Terra were forced to act decisively. This they did by calling in several waves of fresh Space Marine Chapters to bring the civil conflict to an end by exterminating heretical forces and bringing order to the region. One such Chapter operating under the High Lords' writ was the Minotaurs Chapter, then all but unseen for millennia. They were a Chapter both familiar through their fell reputation and profoundly changed. A fleet-based Chapter, operating fully equipped and at peak strength, the Minotaurs fought as a single cohesive force that struck like a series of brutal axe blows at sources of schism and disorder, quickly earning themselves a bloody reputation by carrying out the orders of the High Lords without question or falter. During the suppression, while on the Ocean World of Nereus, the Minotaurs hunted down and obliterated the xenos-possessed remnants of the Imperial Paladins Chapter's 4th Company in the mazes of the sub-surface cavern cities, poisoning the seas of that once vital Agri-World.

Chapter AppearanceEdit

Chapter ColoursEdit

The Imperial Paladins primarily wear dark blue Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest guard is gold in colour. The white-coloured squad specialty symbol (Tactical, Assault, Devastator, or Veteran) is designated on the right shoulder plate. A black coloured Roman numeral centred on the squad specialty symbol designates squad number. The colour of the shoulder guard trim indicates company number in accordance with the Codex Astartes -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), Green (4th Company), etc. Sergeants are identified by their red coloured helmets, and veterans sergeants are recognised with the addition of a white helmet stripe.

Chapter BadgeEdit

The Imperial Paladins' Chapter badge is a gold maltese cross with a large white skull centred on it, on a field of dark blue.
