View Full Version : Grey Skulls Info?

Any info on this chapter? They are mentioned in the 5th Rulebook but no more than they believe in omens and that are uber zealous, faithful and powerful (just like everything else that is so great, becoming banal in the end).

As far as I'm aware the rulebooks the first (and only) mention they've ever had.

I presume you mean the Silver Skulls? If so they've been around since Rogue Trader days more recently identified as a second founding chapter derived from the Ultramarines.


Shows about all the information there is for them.

Silvers Skulls indeed, my mistake. Thanks for the link.

I don't know that they've ever been confirmed as Ultramarines successors--does anyone have an official source that says so? They've not been listed in codices mentioning second founding Chapters, and the 5th Edition rulebook says their founding is unknown.

the Space Marine Collectors' Guide and How to Paint Space Marine books both identify Silver Skulls as a successor chapter of the Ultramarines. Not the most impressive of sources but its still "official"

Codex Ultramarines: "The Silver Skulls claim a lineage direct from the Ultramarines. The exact date of their founding is unknown but most would not argue their long record of service to the Imperium."

Since they aren't a real chapter I guess I'll make a small contingent for my inquisitor army....

They are a real Chapter. They are in GW publications like the 3rd Space Marine Codex, How to Paint Space Marines etc.

They even have a story of an Inquisitor investigating their gene-banks.

I feel bad because i automatically wanted to make a remark about Chapter Master Heman when i saw the post.

But like the others said. The Silver Skulls are Ultra sucessors. They paint them with light blue eyes if i remember right.
