View Full Version : Veteran Sergeant Helmets

What is the "official" codex color scheme for Veteran Sergeant helmets?

Sergeants get red helmets, but how do you indicate Veteran status? The Space marine Codex shows laurels painted on the helmets, but I seem to remember something about there being a white stripe on the helmet, but I can' t remember for sure.

If anyone has the Insignium Astartes book and can tell me what it says in there I'd really appreciate it.

Veterans and terminators: white helmets.
Sergeants: red helmets.
Veteran sergeants (including Terminator sergeants): red with a white stripe.

That's what 2nd edition Codex Ultramarines says. I do not remember the Index Astartes including that info.

Bloodknight is right. I've also seen a variation of a red helmet with a laurel wreath painted around it in white.

Does this only apply to Ultramarines?

I appreciate the confirmation!

Everything that applies to Ultramarines automatically applies to all Codex chapters (unless stated otherwise).

@LOTE: the Imperial Laurel is an additional honour badge for bravery. The codex demands a company banner bearer to have been decorated with it :)

(funny side note: the Iron Halo was once the rank badge of a Space Marine Corporal before GW changed it into a protective field device...).
