Alphabetical listing for 1,000 chapter project

Crimson Castellans

Crimson Castellans

I’ve added alphabetical listing to the one thousand chapter project. Now you can quickly sort through all the chapters. I’ve also threw in first and second foundings on the canon listing. Since I’ve been away, GW has released a lot more information about many of the canon chapters found in the gallery, along with some new chapters (which I’ll be adding). I’ll be working through them all in my spare time, creating all the new images, which is time consuming so it may take a while. I’ve already sneaked in a couple of updates, adding in bolters for chapters we now know the bolter colours of. I’ll post an update here for the canon chapters once done: a little mini-gallery of all the new chapters and changes made. In the meantime here is the Crimson Castellans, an update for one of the ‘blanks’.

After that, I’ll ask the mods over on Bolter and Chainsword to re-open the old submission thread. If they cannot do that I’ll sort out a submission form here. Then I’ll be able to take on new chapter submissions – I’m sure the Space Marine fans have been very busy while I’ve been away!

It’s been a couple of years since I last posted on my blog. I had to step away due to family commitments. Now that my role as a carer is coming to an end, I find myself thinking about Philverse, Sciror, and WarSpike more and more. Lots of ideas have been running around in the back of my head while I’ve been away, no matter how much I tried to suppress them, and they are starting to bubble up to the surface. They need to be expressed; otherwise I’ll explode, so I’ve starting to work them up.

As part of my Near Future designs, the first stepping stone of the Sciror timeline, I want to touch upon architecture, psychology and politics. Before I went on hiatus I started to think about these things, and how to lay a foundation unto which I build and justify the setting. My CORR housing post was my first outline of how to deal with a housing crisis in Britain, and how to build on the green belt land. I rendered up this image a couple of years ago;

Updating 1,000 chapter project
3rd Jul, 2016

It’s been a long time since I last looked at the 1,000 chapter project thread over on Bolter and Chainsword, and the last official update was back in 2012! Has it really been that long? I guess it has. So I had a read through the last part of the thread and collected all the updates, basically 5 new chapters (Dancing Scythes, Ghosts of Retribution, Helios Guard, Praetorians, and the Thunderbolts), and a few updated images (Black Guard, Libators, Patriarchs of Ulixis, and the Emperor’s Shadows).

It was a lot of fun updating this, and reading about some interesting chapters!

Here is a link to the updated project: 1,000 Chapters

More on the 1,000 marines

I started an discussion over on the Bolter and Chainsword forum that has been fascinating to me. I always enjoy hearing how others interpret the universe of Warhammer 40,000, and this discussion has shown to me how different other’s views of the same text can be, and how deep those interpretations can go. I thought I was 100% right, but listening to others I see once again how wonderfully fluid the background really is, and the new ideas other’s views bring to the table. I still think I am correct (I would wouldn’t I! As I think my view tends more towards the background’s ethos and intent, but these other views are very interesting). If you have the time and are a member of Bolter and Chainsword (if not, why not!) why not pop by and chip in your own unique ideas to the thread?
