I am sure most of you have seen this, but I only looked them up today, and what a dull chapter to focus on, look like ultras again to me.

Heres the page the pic's on.

I am hoping they are very unorthodox.



I still think FW should have put the Rainbow warriors in that campaign... :(

they have a crusade symbol, for a chapter badge though so, they may have some variant rules and the Raptors (who were Green before Armageddon), are a Raven Guard offshoot, so they will have lots of assault squads

MORE assault marines? jeez i have had enough of assault marines, they should be siege marines, lots of big guns and tanks.

Looks like an old Ultramarine. Hardly what Id call exciting.

Anyone got any background info on them? Is there something special we dont know?

Any bets on GW changing the colour scheme from what we see here to something a little less like the Ultramarines?

Kinda. Raptors were this (http://groups.msn.com/BadabWarProject/loyalistchapters.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=104) colour before the Jemadal incident which then meant their scheme became this (http://groups.msn.com/BadabWarProject/loyalistchapters.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=105). They also had a blizzard scheme like this (http://groups.msn.com/BadabWarProject/loyalistchapters.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=106).

What is the Jemadal incident?

If anything, there may be a few extra marine releases for the Tauros campaign but I doubt they will be specific - there are already chapter specific shoulder pads being made, maybe there might be a new vehicle in the pipeline?

Here (http://www.armageddon3.com/English/Campaign/Troops/raptors.html) explains all!

Personally I'd like to see some funky specialised rebreathers that they had to come up with to survive and other bits like that.

they have now gone back to their original colour scheme, which IMHO looks poo
